Monthly Mystical Report for October 21st through November 22nd
This is a month where we cannot take short cuts. We are coming into the Samhain season from a centered and grounded position, one where we are searching to see the larger picture of our lives. At time it might almost seem like we see glimpses of how everything is working together in our lives, but that vision can be hard to maintain in the face a Monday morning. Do not feel disenchanted by this. This ebb and flow of vision and clarity can be normal. In those moment we have that clarity, like over the next month, we must take the time to set our plans and goals before the vision begins to fade. Wisdom and practicality may be hard to come by at first, but as the star turn towards the end of November the visions, clarity, and ideas we have been realizing can begin to together in more concrete ways. Our goal over this next month is the lay the firm groundwork for what we feel comes next in our lives. We must have to strength to do things the right way the first time. To communicate with honesty and sensitivity, so communal clarity can be achieved, which is especially poignant due to the Mercury Retrograde which has just begun. We must resist trying to take the short cut, or pushing ahead without having a good plan. To be impatient this with how this month will unfold is to cheat yourself and others of going through a process that has been set for us. Trust Divine and cosmic timing this month ahead!
Long standing planetary influences for this month:
Uranus in Aries:The urge to start fresh, to break free from restrictive attitudes or circumstances, to totally redesign an area of our lives (or even our personalities), and to gain freedom through independence is strong with Uranus in Aries.
Jupiter in Cancer: Cancer is a water sign. With a Water sign Jupiter, we have a strong belief in a higher power. We are most able to attract luck and rich life experiences through our intuition, imagination, and compassion. Helping those in need boosts our own morale. More specifically with Jupiter in Cancer, we attract the most good fortune when we are sympathetic, charitable, use our powers to save and accumulate, and comfort others. Real estate, child care, mother care, and the food industry can be prosperous avenues. Go with your gut, even it seems a little out there or too much and keep an eye on the big picture. Balance identity issues with learning and expansion.
Saturn in Scorpio: Significant decisions are often made during Saturn’s hard transits to our personal planets. These transits slow life down (or at least, that is how we perceive it) and force us to live our lives in the present. Although Saturn transits can make life feel like a drudgery (these are often times when our lives seem to move at a snail’s pace and advancements are hard to see), they also give us the opportunity to gain inner strength, to become more responsible for what we do and say, and to cut out waste or excesses in our lives. Basically, what happens is a form of paring or slimming down in the area of life affected by Saturn. We are getting rid of things in our lives that are not working for us in the real world, and focusing on improving and strengthening the things that do serve a useful purpose. Take the slow times to fill up, and build up your inner reserves. Be careful of depression, if we were riding high during a high-speed Uranus transit just before Saturn “hit”, this period can mark a significant time in our lives when we “pay” for the risks we may have taken during that Uranus phase. While it may feel like life has just stopped, it really hasn’t, it’s taken on a new form and we need to slow down and adjust to a tighter way of being, where we get ready for new growth.
Neptune in Pisces: Neptune’s entry into its watery home sign signals a spiritual awakening that crosses the threshold of our individual differences to reconnect humanity in a web of common awareness. Compassion shifts from an idealistic concept to an active energy that puts us in touch with one another in a more emotional way. The last time Neptune was in Pisces — from 1847 through 1862 — concern for others was reflected in the abolitionist movement to end slavery in the United States and to free the serfs in Russia. It’s likely that this transit of Neptune will again put issues of injustice and inequality into the spotlight.
Pluto in Capricorn: The planet of transformation ends its 13-year stay in religious Sagittarius, a period when fundamentalist beliefs have radically changed the world. The next phase, Pluto’s entry into organizational Capricorn, will alter the nature of corporations, nations and international groups of all kinds. The planet Pluto and sign Capricorn share a strong sense of intention and focus that are likely to increase efficiency in many domains. Ideally, Pluto brings us to the essence of issues and, in Capricorn, will lead to a transformation of the social order, one in which the extreme inequities of power and resources are overcome by a burgeoning awareness of our shared humanity.
The message:This is a week of working through our struggles, fears, and challenges. It may not leave up feeling emotionally high, but it is a necessarily time. We must ground into the living Earth around us and tap Mother Earth as needed. It may seem like we have a bunch of pieces trying to fit together, but they aren’t quite ready yet. So, don’t push to make them fit. With the Retrograde coming up, this is the time to get some of that important communication that needs to happen out of the way, and deal even deal with the award conversations we have been avoiding. Just remember to ground, keep practical, keep to the point, and keep energizing as needed.
October 21st-November 10th: Mercury Retrogrades in Scorpio: With Mercury being retrograde in Scorpio, a general skepticism is likely to run through the crowd. A sort of confusion is likely to prevail as far as secrets and unknown things are concerned. A tendency toward arrogance is also to be expected among the menfolk and generally others might seem difficult to get along with. But remember everyone is being influenced by these energies that pushing us to further our individual selves. So patience is required with others. A general attraction towards the occult sciences like psychic readings and astrology will be today as people seek the clarity they thought they were realizing over the last week. Let today’s doubts be a blip on your road of life.
October 22nd: Mars in Virgo is showing us where the flaws are, even if not in the most polite way. Mercury is helping out by its retrograde motion giving us a second chance to fix things. Mercury will be with Saturn again a week from today and we will have step two. Step one in our clean-up process was the 8th of October and step three will be November 25th, as mentioned the main message for this week. We have a lot to learn. The Moon is in Gemini today and we are in a very intense mood sorting out what is important and what is not.
October 23rd: Sun enters Scorpio, where passion, discovering the truth, and intuition intersect. Our everyday personality may be called to be more observant and to see through lies or false things We will know exactly what we need to do to be successful with what is on our plate. This is a day to adjust, digest, and figure out your own strategy in light of the current climate. This day was also see the shadow of the upcoming mercury retrograde. Here we must get to the bottom line, get honest feed back from trusted sources and supportive people, and get the next lesson we need to work before next year!
Today is a day for grand vision and long term plans. With Venus in Sattitarius and Mercury retrograding in Scorpio it’s this is the time to lay out plans and goals for the next 6 mos. The previous full moon and eclipse in Aries will urge you to shoot for the moon, and with enough planning you might be surprised as to what you can accomplish. But the focus will be on being your authentic self, on doing something you have always wanted to learn or do. This is the time to set the plans to make that happen!
October 28th -November 3rd:
The Message: This is powerful week! It may start off a little slow, and we have to be watchful of what say and how we react to others, but the end of the week will pack a quite a wallop. While we may not have the details about how to get it done or integrate it into our lives just yet, revelations and realizations abound at the end of this week. We might find ourselves looking at choosing between something we love and something we think we want. This is a week where divination and seeking counsel from the Gods and spirits traditionally occurred as a main event, due to the veil being at it’s thinnest. Take advantage of this and see your destiny! Write everything down! Start setting intentions and working this new knowledge and clarity into your goals and plans.
October 28th: With the moon void most the day AND the retrograde still in effect, this is not a day to focus on deals, contracts, bargaining, or anything but the normal day in and day out kind of stuff. Enjoy the day for what it is and don’t stress. Tomorrow will be a new day!
October 29th: The mid afternoon can make or break an opportunity. The retrograde and Mars and the moon in Virgo make this a time for watching what we say and do. Be respectful, be polite and we just get a big green light that we have been waiting for!
October 30th, 31st and November 1st: Merry Samhain!
The stars and planets are in alignment to bring us information. We have been learning about our authentic selves, then perhaps we ever deemed possible lately, but it is a sacred time now. We must look forward still. In pagan traditions the 31st into the 1st is where we focus on those have come before us. We must during these two days look at our past and present, acknowledge how far we have come and those who have helped and loved us. Then we must look to where these lesson have ultimately been leading us. Begin to set your list of intentions and affirmations for the upcoming Solar Eclipse, when you will eventually release them out into the universe and into the hands of the Divine.
The solar eclipse is going to heighten our perceptions and intuitions. The changes brought about an eclipse last take about six months to unfold, so this is not an instant fix. Rather this is a time of deliberate and slow growth. Eclipses are also about endings and eventual beginnings. What is it what we have been holding on to, that no longer serves us? What beliefs are out dated, or perhaps were never really our own to begin with? The idea here is beginning a metamorphoses! There will be many messages coming, just stay tuned, and stay centered, and know that you are ultimately meant to succeed! Release those intentions you have been thinking about into the world today!
The Message: Don’t let the slow start to this week put a damper on our dreams and revelations from last week. Instead nourish those thought and hopes inside yourself until later in the week. Let them incubate a bit. Trust in the truth you know deep in your heart and bones, and be glad to be dealing the rest of the life as well. This is the time when you need to start making some solid plans, even if you just begin to brainstorm about how to manifest your revelation, it’s a start. More information is coming, so what is important is that you simply begin to do something with your new gift of clarity and vision.
November 4th: It will be a slow start to your new plans, but do not take this time for granted and use it to solidify and schedule your goals and mini-steps towards your goals! You have a bout two weeks until things start gaining enough momentum that you won’t be able to easily make changes to the plan, so make sure the plan is sound now because of Venus entering into Capricorn today. So the mood for commitment and getting done is in air, and that energy will carry forward.
November 6th: This morning is wonderful for further solidifying your intentions and goals. The afternoon might drag on a little, but once we hit happy hour times, it could be like the world has shifted and we are ready to start running towards our goals! This is a big shift, as the Sun and Saturn begin their yearly dance anew today! They will be in Scorpio while doing this lending an energy of deep introspection and intuitive leaps to our manifestations.
November 7th: Another big day today! Jupiter, which has been a major player since June and July this year is pushing towards our best selves, is now about to go retrograde. It’s time a review of everything we have learned, or thought we learned from this past summer and fall! Just to make sure the lessons become part of our lives and learning take this all to heart, for Jupiter promises us happiness, luck, love, and comfort! Remember how to take care of yourself, remember your needs, and remember to invest in yourself for the rest of this week! Now is a time to build things with other that can help protect and support you as a whole, like phones trees, support networks, etc…
November 10th: Mercury goes direct today, taking us out of the introspective mood and back on the road toward looking forward again. But you may not really have the energy or support to do much with for the rest of the day. So, it is a day of hope, knowing that you have time and things are in place to carry forward in time.
The Message: There is a warning this week, not let yourself go too far too fast. You don’t have all the information you need yet, so there is no sense in rushing forward. While you may be on a little bit of a high trying to bring forth your grand vision of your life and letting that love flow….SLOW DOWN and allow things to take their own course. Enjoy the process!! Enjoy being in love with your life and dreams again!
November 12th: A Grand Trine with moon in Pisces, the sun in Scorpio, and Jupiter in Cancer, just like the couple that broke through our emotional walls over the summer time! Get ready for another emotional clearing that will make way for all the good things to come. Not necessarily a good day for business or getting things down, but a great mental and emotional health day that will have last consequences.
November 13th: Neptune finally goes direct, after being in retrograde all summer and fall long!! If ever there was a day to simply pick up and quite something you isn’t good for, and never look back, this is that day! There are multiple energies at play here that will once again have you running forward toward your ultimate and ideal goal as if it were a long lost lover or friend!
November 14th: With all the wonderful changes that have to chance to place during this time, don’t go too far, too fast, especially on the home front. Stay focused on keep the homefires strong and welcoming for your family while you go through your own changes, so as not cause conflict with the rest of your family, who might be changing in their own ways as well. For the rest of this week make sure your home life and your financial life are being squared away, dealt with, and practically planned out, so that as we progress deeper in the energies of metamorphosis we have the resources and support we need already in place!
The Message: Don’t let this week get you down. We are almost to the point where things will begin clicking into place. So don’t get too impatient that things might be going slower or more mundane life might seem more hectic. It is almost as if we are all waiting on baited breath for something to be revealed to us. Trust your vision and the plan you have been developing and work it the best you can for the environment you are currently in, and know that others are feeling just as anxious and irritable as you! The 25th will bring a long await realization that can begin to set everything into place, so just bear with this week, and remember to temper your reactions to upsets, harsh words, or shady actions.
November 18th and 19th: Keeps things simple these days. Deal with what you have to deal with, but keep it practical and factual. Make sure you have your facts straight, in fact, don’t jump to conclusions!And take what you can get and let the rest go!
November 20th: Venus is Capricorn has us keeping ourselves busy realizing what it’s going to take in order to reach our goals and dreams! But this is the last day we have the Sun Scorpio, so some the intensity we have had about our explorations into potentials may begin a wane a little, which is okay. We are due for a more “can do” take on our progress and goals about now anyway!!
November 21st: The sun moves into Sagittarius, and the moon trines Jupiter and Saturn. The Earth trine reminds of all we have to be grateful for in life, our stability, our support networks, and Sagittarius energy makes us hopeful and optimistic. This energy may be intensified by it’s the suns opposition to Neptune, so while we are day dreaming and envisioning our goals and dreams, don’t let yourself wander too far afield!
November 22nd-24th: Keep your eye on the prize! Life may get a little crazy, detailed, and/or seemingly complicated until all those piece of the puzzle fall into place a little better!
November 25th: Step one in our Saturn inspired clean-up process was the 8th of October and step three will be November 25th. Today we get that last piece that will seemingly put a lot of our relationship, power, and money issues into perspective. But this is not a day for pushing either. Today is the type of day, with Thanksgiving comping up and some vacation time ahead, that you want to just go with the flow and spread the good will around!
