"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing

there is a field. I will meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.

Ideas, language, even the phrase 'each other'

doesn't make any sense." Rumi

October Summary

A rare and special meeting of the classic lovers Venus and Mars make this month special. In the sign of Virgo, it's not a flashy affair, but sensual and naturally in synch. Look for these two planets together in the morning sky, closest on the 5th, with a Full Moon later that night. The beauty of a lovely evening shines bright. Big Planet Jupiter deep dives from Libra into Scorpio on the 10th, for its once a year sign change. A New Moon on the 19th changes the dialogue and some partnerships. New liaisons or a fresh approach to negotiations further the agenda.

Love is a Many-Splendored Thing

This famous 1952 novel by Eurasian writer Han Suyin, was made into a 1955 Hollywood movie with a romantic Oscar-winning song worth a listen. Here's a quiet version by Nat King Cole:

"Love is a many-splendored thing...

Love is nature's way of giving a reason to be living,"

Splendorous Full Moon

In ARIES the MOON reflects the light of the LIBRA SUN. A Full Moon highlights the dynamic between two opposite signs, raising them to a blossoming of awareness. The need of the fiery Aries Moon is for standing tall in one's individual integrity. The vitality of the communing air of the Libra Sun is enhanced by relationship, cooperation and sharing. The best of relationship comes through each person standing centered clearly in one's essence. If we lean off-center for the sake of harmony in relationship, we may eventually fall down. This Full Moon is like being on a see-saw, the playful push-off the keep the movement going back and forth. Relationship is a powerful mirror of the heart, back to Self. You might find you are reviewing the emotional process of last spring, when Venus turned retrograde in March-April at the same 13 Aries spot as this Full Moon. Have you changed your emotional tone since then?

There are powerful planetary patterns head-lighted under this Full Moon.

Earth is clearly in a deep transformational process, thus so are we. From inside out and outside in, we can feel like we are reeling with these changes. Now that we have completed the moon cycle of the Total Eclipse, we are evermore aware that we have landed in a new place, personally and globally. We are in the thick of it and have no choice but to see it through. It's so easy (or is it?) to try to regain normal. No, there is no "normal," no going back. How can move forward and take advantage of the moment to improve our situation, to rebuild with forward-looking strategies. It is time to do better. Around the globe, we are witnessing and confronted with Nature's power of expression, creativity and capacity for transformation. Can we doubt that we are being inundated with strong cosmic energies? We love the idea of awakening and consciousness change. Now we are in the application phase and feeling more than a bit challenged. Perhaps the leading edge is to evoke the beauty in each moment, embrace the small pleasures that abound, even in the chaos of disaster. What are you giving your attention to?

Mars meets Venus in Virgo: Earthy, Herbaceous, Sensual

Enjoy this luscious energy! Creative, rather romantic in a lovely, simple way, like a flower or an herb. The more we ground our energy, the more we tune in to the support coming from this extraordinary planet we are part of. With the strong tuning fork energy of earth sign Virgo, our bodies are seeking an increased, intimate harmony with Earth. If we pay attention, we can feel the energy coming up through our feet. Our natural, cellular organic wisdom can guide us through the ongoing Earth changes and the emotional impact of letting go of the world as we knew it. What a time to be alive. This Full Moon is a special moment, with Mars activity and Venus resonance meeting up at 20 degrees Virgo. This moment offers rare levels of emotional resonance with Nature, Earth and our physicality. "You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves," writes poet Mary Oliver. Let your body move you, guide your rhythm and flow, the best response to the moment. This is a fine moment to feel out how this works for you. The season is changing.

Pluto turning forward, Mercury divines secrets

For weeks, Pluto has been turning the screw as it turns to forward motion, This actually happened last Friday-Saturday, emphasized by the Moon joining Pluto. A game changer! Just in time for a supportive aligntment with the Venus-Mars combo. Are you feeling it? Like the wild Plutonian goddess Kali, sword in hand,cuts away what is no longer life-giving and vital, so healthy plants can grow. We don't always have a choice about what that is. She is clearing the ground for healthy growth. Moving forward, we do face some significant choices. We can choose how we feel and think about our situation and how we respond and move on. No matter how much you might want advice and ask for the opinions of others, only you can really know what is right for you.

With Mercury next to the Sun, the Messenger of the Gods relays reams of message streams, keeping the news coming in and conversations going. The mainstream news is not reliable these days. Choose what and how much you want to read, talk about and with whom. With Pluto's strong impact, Mercury will be reporting on serious dealings and negotiations and power plays, revealing dark secrets. The challenge is to claim your power, step up, step forward and take charge of your life. This can mean engaging with what is going on around you. It can also mean disengaging when you feel overwhelmed, stressed and anxious. It isn't easy to let go. Allow yourself to grieve as needed. Pluto has been turning the screws as it came to a standstill and turned forward. We're moving on, no doubt about it. We can join with others to find solutions, to do what needs to be done. We have seen communities action in places of recent tragedies. It is most important, says this Aries Full Moon, that we stay centered and clear. That is the meaning of true leadership: to bring the best of who we are to each moment. If this means stepping back for a bit, turning off the news to tune into our inner guidance, then that is the best thing to do.

Jupiter-Uranus Fireworks—Flipping the Switch

Broad wisdom (Jupiter) of the higher mind (Uranus) is sparked off by the last hurrah of these two planets facing off in Libra and Aries, amplifying the Full Moon energy toward a Tipping of the Scales, or a flipping of the switch. In a moment, our lives can change. Jupiter makes a deep dive into Scorpio on the 10th. Seek the course where you can make a full commitment with intention, attention, passion and compassion.

Uranus more than suggests that this course be innovative, take you into new and exciting directions, and engage more of your talents and potentials than you have yet tapped into. How exciting! Bring all your enthusiasm, excitement and expect the best. Allow the universe to bring that best without any of your limiting projections. Be bold. Jump on your particular Starship Enterprise to "go where no one has gone explore new civilizations," new possibilities, new dimensions.

I'll see you on there!
