Welcome to October's Mercury Retrograde, and here's to getting deep down and dirty!
Oh yes! The wheel of the year is progressing from the Autumn Equinox of Mabon and getting dark and witchy as we approach Samhain, and this year I am feeling Samhain like never before...
All will be explained, and although there is a lot of going backwards this month and I am struggling to start at the beginning, I am still a determined Leo!
September felt a bit like being boxed round the ears, what with all the grand crosses and oppositions. A strong contrast to the beautiful trines we had over the summer. So if you suddenly felt your gears crunching after a long beautiful smooth ride, take heart that you weren't the only one to suddenly find some rude awakenings, and not in the fun way either!
Personally I have been quite out of balance throughout September, things just seemed to keep happening to try and throw me off and they succeeded, a barrage of little shocks that built up until I literally lost my balance and fell down some stairs landing on my coccyx not one but three times. Ow! (Yes that says Ow - not Owl).
So I am looking forward to this month's astrology as it feels very much like getting back on track.
Starting with the New Moon on Libra highlighting balance! The opportunity to get ourselves back on track. A great time to tell yourself you will give yourself time to listen to your own inner messages of truth, make a pact on October 5th to really allow yourself to see things in a fresh new light, to cast away any sticky cobwebs of self deceit, make October the month to start getting real with yourself, and your whole life then has the potential to balance out nicely.
As a nice follow on Venus enters Sagittarius on October 7th , spreading a light of happy go lucky optimism within relationships, a nice refreshing break, after the intensity of Venus in Scorpio and the recent hard aspects. Remember to leave it all behind and once again start afresh, no time to get serious, time for fun!
On 15th another nice change is that Mars moves out of Leo and into Virgo. Calming down ego battles and turning attention to duty, sprinkling a bit of humility over the world. A great time for looking at what goals you want to achieve, time to get organised and practical. May be good to make lists of what you want to set your mind to and go for it! At least for a week that is - before Mercury goes retrograde.
On 18th we have the second of three lunar eclipses this year, this time via full moon in Aries. Heralding the start of the second chapter of whatever themes begun six months ago, the second instalment of change. With the focus (Sun) in Libra and Moon in Aries the themes this month is very much allowing yourself to have a brand new start, break out of restrictions and
be true to you - but in a way that is balanced. This may get tough around the 18th as an Aries full Moon can be full on! Stay away from the drink! Watch overdoing things, being loud, aggressive, etc... Try to make the spotlight on you be about learning about yourself, rather than egotistical attention seeking. The purpose of this eclipse is about clicking any changes into place, it's about seeing what you need to do to get back on track.
On 21st Mercury goes retrograde! Yay! No I am actually not being sarcastic!
Personally I don't think I have ever been so excited about a forthcoming Mercury retrograde! Last Mercury Retrograde I did everything you shouldn't do, down to moving house, buying a sofa that needed delivery from Manchester to London and buying a new Mac. Everything went swimmingly and I couldn't hide the chuffed to bits grin that was curling up the sides of my mouth feeling triumphant over the tricky Mercury. But as soon as it went direct, well that was it, I have been continually plagued! Problems with my mac, my printer, being mis-sold contracts and taken to debt collectors, I was even a victim of fraud so the bank left me without a card for a month which had huge knock on affects! This Mercury Retrograde I am shutting up! Especially as Mercury will be digging deep down into Scorpio, the mute sign, and the planet of communication! If you need to express your truth to someone, it may be best to do before the 21st, as it may just be that you feel strangely tongue-tied until at least the 10th November when it turns direct. Mercury retrogrades are a great time for getting inner messages, and in this deep sign of Scorpio expect that to be heightened. A lot going on under the surface, but it may not feel right to express it, at least just yet.
On 23rd the Sun also goes into Scorpio, illuminating all that is going on within, and there does seem to be a lot. It's a great month for figuring out just what does make you tick, and going for any transformation you need. Particularly if it was something you felt you failed on before, don't be scared to give it another go.
The clocks follow Mercury and fall back an hour on 27th, heralding the forthcoming Samhain on 31st, yes it's time to go into our underground cauldron, put all the bits of the last six months in the cooking pot, don't be afraid to mix it up, once you see the ingredients truly for what they are, take stock, be prepared to let go, so that you can become....
