Welcome to the end of the week! If you’re a regular reader of this blog you have doubtless wondered what the heck is going on–due to the strange posting schedule of late. Well, I’ve been experiencing my own personal Mercury retrograde and only recently figured out why. If you were born in the late 1950’2 or 1960’s your Neptune placement is in Scorpio–the sign Mercury is currently transiting through. In addition, Neptune (the planet dishing out the la la land thinking) is itself currently transiting through Pisces–which is a complimentary angle (trine) to Scorpio, since both of these signs (Scorpio/Pisces) are water signs. The bottom line is that your thinking is likely to be deep, dreamy, and very intuitive–and not grounded at all. Check and recheck your work for errors and be sure to capture insights as these are likely to be deep and literally out of this world. Mercury doesn’t leave Scorpio until 28 October 2012–and we will be in a retrograde shadow by then. Life is likely to be really going to be a bit weird this month (and the Mercury retrograde is in Scorpio folks).
Okay, so Friday the Moon in Virgo keeps your nose to the work/health grind stone with a three star day and a lengthy void of course period that begins at 4:48 PM. The Moon doesn’t switch into Libra until 4:02 PM Saturday and there are no exact aspects all day–so you’ll need to bring your cheeriest self to the day via meditation, exercise and other uplifting energy work. Sunday is a two star day–so again with the self-care practices to maintain the chill attitude you need to get through a somewhat weird and wired day. Keep in mind you may feel unusually tired thanks to the aspects and the dark of the Moon lunar phase we’re in now, so pencil in extra rest as needed for your personal needs.
Karmic balance, calm, beauty, self-image, and romance are all in focus during a Moon in Libra transit. Black, royal/cerulean blue, pink, rose or pastel shades help you to get in the Libran groove while fire agate, agate, aquamarine, opal or rose quartz crystals can give you additional alignment with the weekend energy. Rose, violet, vanilla, or lemon verbena incense and essential oils help your emotional balance and are a nice boost for a romantic rendezvous.
Friday 12 October 2012 begins with a power Pluto trine at 12:56 AM; this is a great aspect for visualization, affirmation or Law of Attraction work–or a midnight rendezvous (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PDT). Communication projects get some extra jet fuel thanks to a Moon-Mercury sextile at 6:23 AM followed by a lovely conjunction by the Moon and Venus at 7:06 AM; you’ll be looking your best and money matters look pretty good now. Try to avoid over doing it when the Moon squares Jupiter at 4:48 PM–no promising things you can’t fulfill or over spending please.
Saturday 13 October 2012 as I mentioned earlier, there are no aspects today. Take care of your vibration with self-care modalities (meditation, yoga, chakra balancing via Reiki, etc.) in order to maintain a high vibration during the day. As a side note, don’t overdo the caffeine in the afternoon hours and I’ll tell you why next.
Sunday 14 October 2012 a sleep disrupting sextile between the Moon and Mars occurs at 12:31 AM, so get out your sleep aids and come prepared to deal with noise or disruptive factors before turning in for the night. Hopefully you didn’t overindulge in caffeine in the afternoon as that may be the insomnia inducing culprit. A Moon-Uranus opposition at 1:55 AM adds gasoline to the insomnia fire. If you can’t sleep you might just want to get out of bed and do some work on key creative assignments–Uranus can lend a hand there. Hopefully you’re at home, snug in bed when the Moon squares Pluto at 3:52 AM; Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio and you don’t want to run afoul of someone in the wee hours of the morning–it could be dangerous. Avoid late night partying and hanging out with people known for fits of ill temper–in other words make safe choices for self early Sunday morning. A gloriously lucky trine between the Moon and Jupiter occurs at 6:44 PM–do what you can to curry favor or bring a spotlight to work projects important to your future.
