Those of us who live in the Northern Hemisphere now find ourselves headed toward the dark of the year. This is a time when the daylight shortens and, in many places, the temperatures grow colder.
It was in these times that our ancestors found time to think. The harvest time was over and, although there were still chores to perform for daily living, there was time to contemplate life for there was less to do.
Many spiritual paths encourage introspection at any time, but this time of the year is still seen as the best time to take on this challenge. It’s a time to get to know yourself better and, hopefully, get a better understanding of who you are and what motivates you. This may necessitate talking to others, for some, or reading books that cause us to think and look at things from a different perspective.
What might also be helpful to others is to know and understand the energies that surrounded you at the time of your birth. These can help to find an understand the soul’s journey and purpose through this lifetime.
For this reason, I’m offering a special rate on my natal astrology charts from now until October 31, 2019. The regular price of $150.00 is reduced to $125.00 – a savings of $25.00!
If you’re not familiar with my work, my charts are not computer-generated and are anywhere from 80-100 pages long. You also receive 3 free 1-hour consultations, after you have read your chart, that can be done in-person, by phone, or even though email or messaging.

For now, just to understand the energies of the upcoming planetary moves can be of great help. That begins with a New Moon in Libra on Saturday, September 28th at 2:26 p.m. EDT.
New Moons are great for new beginnings and this one, being in Libra, is great for establishing any kind of partnership. Have you been wanting to start a new business with a partner? These energies could help. How about a new relationship, whether friendship or intimate? These energies might indicate the timing is right. Or perhaps you just want to improve the relationship you have with a sibling, parent, friend, etc. These energies are great for that as well.
Moon in Libra, even if it isn’t a New Moon, is always good for achieving more balance and harmony in your life. If you’ve found one area of your life has been overriding the others, this is a good time to rein it in and achieve balance and harmony in your life overall.
Libra energies are social energies and this is a great time to get out and meet new friends or just catch up with ones you already know. Music, dancing, and good conversation should all be part of that social experience.
This is also a great time for creating new art or music. These energies allow for a good grasp of the fundamentals of line, color, and design. If you’re not an artist yourself, this is a great time to take time to appreciate the works of others.
This can be the beginning of a really beautiful period of time for those who choose to take advantage of these energies.
Pluto in Capricorn, which has been retrograde since April 24th, will go direct on Thursday, October 3rd, at 2:37 a.m. EDT. At the time it went retrograde, I said:
“This is a time when some of us will experience this energy coming back towards us to that we may begin to or continue to learn how to integrate our own philosophies and identities within the framework of the society or culture we live in.
“Pluto is one of the “generational” or “transpersonal” planets that affects us more on a group or global scale than an individual one so this is a time to learn how to operate within society through lesson in discipline, self-determination, and being socially responsible.
“This is definitely a time to ask ourselves if the ends justify the means when we seek to advance ourselves. Capricorn, ruled by Saturn – a karmic planet that brings us lessons, is about duty and responsibility. Its energies include being practical, patient, persistent, and efficient. Things we should all keep in mind while this retrograde is happening.
“Two potential problems that could be revealed to us are being overly identified with our career, position, or status; and, manipulating and using others for our own ends. These are lessons of retrograde Pluto that can help us to better understand ourselves and interact with those around us in a more responsible manner.
“Self-determination, in this instance, means identifying ones goals, abilities, capacities, and desires. Actualizing them then requires discipline and commitment to a sustained effort of our own making.”
Even if you weren’t aware of the energetic meaning of Pluto being retrograde, now as its energies move forward, you should keep these things in mind so that you can use them to your best advantage.
On that same day, October 3rd, at 4:15 a.m. EDT, Mercury enters Scorpio where minds can become shrewd, sharp, and powerful with the ability to be remarkably clear in foresight and vision.
If you are influenced by these energies, it will become harder to deceive you. You should also be aware of your own possible deceptions either towards others or yourself.
There are two types to this energy – one is higher and will cause those affected by it to use the abilities of this placement in worthy ways. The other is a lower type of energy that causes those affected by it to be arrogant and intolerant. Other words that describe the influence of these energies on us and others are: intensely critical, vengeful, ruthless, and unscrupulous. The choice is ours.
This placement can also draw our attention to the occult or mystical in nature. It might even cause us to want to investigate the mysteries of the universe and human life.
An interesting and forceful energy to say the least.
A few days later, on Tuesday, October 8th, Venus enters Scorpio at 1:06 p.m. EDT. bringing an intensity to love in the physical sense. This can make ones love life stormy.
The extreme directness and determination of this energy can cause a person influenced by it to actually frighten the person with whom they are in love. It can cause a person to be passionate, possessive, and/or jealous. Secrets, even if only imagined, can cause a desire for revenge. If one is able to control and direct this terrific emotional drive, wonders could be accomplished!
People may also find themselves attracted to the occult sciences and inner mysteries, and have a psychic sensitivity to the feelings of others.
Some interesting things going on this time. May they be of use in improving your life and bringing you joy
