Astrological Musings & More

Massive solar flares, an earthquake in Canada today, and a hurricane nicknamed “Frankenstorm” about to hit the East coast of the USA with winds expected to have an effect as far west as Wisconsin…all as we continue our once-in-a-many lifetime journey to the center of our galaxy!  These are truly amazing times we live in.

While many are looking at all this in a negative manner, I have chosen to be grateful for this opportunity being presented to us, as we approach both the Full Moon and Halloween (a time when the veil between the worlds is exceptionally thin), to “stir things up” and remove existing negativity from my sphere of existence.

“She’s crazy!” I can hear some of you saying.  As we buy gas and oil for our generator, I just believe that things DO happen for a reason.  I’ve been a “glass-half-full” kind of gal for most of my life and truly believe that there are instances when Mother Nature and the Universe present us with the opportunity to look at things differently and respond differently to life’s situations.  This, I believe, is one of them.

So, while I pray for the safety of those in the path of the storm and those who live in Canada where the quake has taken place, I also pray that they allow themselves to let go, have faith and believe that, in it’s own way, these happenings are a gift.  Stay safe and hopeful, my friends.

In the meantime, on Monday, October 29th, at 2:18 am EDT, Mercury will move into Sagittarius.

The energies of this placement requires us to pay attention to details of information in order to see the truth.  It can reveal social motivation to us and allow us to improve our judgment and decisions.

For those affected by these energies, your intuition will be hard to beat right now. Following your hunches, you will rarely go wrong.

This is a time of honesty. It’s a time to be direct, forthright and guileless.  Deception will be seen through easily.

If you write, this is a time for short stories.  Letters, become texts.  Brief and to-the-point communications is the signature of these energies.

All in all an interesting time for inner thought and communication!

The Full Moon happens on Monday, October 29th, at 3:49 p.m. EDT in the sign of Taurus.

The Full Moon is shining brightly on the sign that rules money, finances and all forms of resources now.  With the Sun in Scorpio (the sign of transformation and regeneration) this can be a wonderful time to focus one’s energies on abundance of all sorts!

The Moon is exalted in Venus-ruled Taurus, enabling it to gather in and conserve resources for the proverbial rainy day.  Taurus is a practical sign and these energies allow for the applying of common sense to all situations and problems.

Venus-ruled Taurus is also romantic and there may be a desire for good companionship, soft music and candlelight.  Well, why not?  It is a Full Moon!

Wednesday, October 31st, is known by many names: Halloween, Hallowmas, Samhain, etc.  this is both a time of mirth and a time of reverence.  It’s a time to celebrate all life and respect those who have passed from our presence.  However you celebrate this day, I hope it is a wonderful day for you!!!

That time has come upon us once again…Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday, November 4th, at 2:00 a.m. EDT.  Time “falls back” one hour.  A chance to sleep in or just rest and relax before beginning your new week.


It’s only been a little over a week since Mercury went into Sagittarius.  Now, on Tuesday, November 6th, Mercury will turn retrograde in Sagittarius.

Going retrograde, this placement’s energies make it difficult to concentrate.  External distractions will pull your focus away from the task at hand.  This can make you feel like it’s hardly worth trying to solve your life’s problems.  Not true!  This is just a time when you may have to seek out someone not as affected by this retrograde as you are – Earth signs are a possibility – and/or you may need to be grounding, centering and using deep breathing often to clear your mind.

This lack of mental clarity can have its benefits though.  For some, they may find that messages of a spiritual nature come to them to be given to those they meet.  Be open to receiving them!

Neptune has been retrograde in Pisces (the sign it rules) since June 4th.  Now, at 2:53 a.m. EDT on Sunday, November 11th, it will turn direct.

This energy of direct motion now allows us to face any illusions we have about spirituality, our values, the arts and all things mysterious and mystical.

This now becomes a time when we need to deal with the very human tendency to evade or deny rather than deal with our problems.  The fear this can create in us can leave us feeling weary – feeling spiritually and emotionally exhausted.  It is very important to find hope and reasons to be grateful in any situation, no matter how bad it may seem on the surface.

This is also an excellent time for the development of psychic abilities.  When combined with spirituality, it can provide an honest clear channel into the invisible realms.

This is truly a time for the realization that all the answers we have sought, and continue to seek, lie within each of us.  Truly amazing!
