Happy October all! We are now officially heading into Autumn and Winter. The nights draw closer, days seem shorter, and our focus is on harvesting all that we have worked so hard on this year. I love this time of year! We celebrate Halloween, or Samhain, which is the Pagan New Year this month. We also turn the clocks back one hour around this time too. UK’s Daylight Savings is on October 27th, the US’s is November 3th and October 6th for Australia.

Let’s see what tricks and treats I have for you this month! I have our favourite Samhain New Year reading and the Trick or Treat reading.

You can have a browse through the many specialized readings I offer on the  Tarot Readings page.  Tarot’s Life Path & Personal Growth section is a good place to start!  Or take a wander through the various Oracle readings on my site, like Rune, Angel, Faery and Animal Totem readings.  All of these categories can be found on the main Reading Room page.  Don’t forget to check out the other areas on the Readings page, like the Oracles, Rune and Animal Medicine Cards sections.

Week Ahead – Monday, September 30th through Sunday, October 6th

Happy Sunday everyone! We are moving into our first week of October and we should see some forward momentum this month, with 3 planets that were retrograde now moving forward with a focus on personal growth and evolution. These planets are in Capricorn, which is a sign of initiation into a new order. it will be interesting to see what develops worldwide with these energies. Today, we have a balancing Libra Moon that is great for socializing and trying something out of your normal routine. As we begin our work week, the tone moves into an emotionally intense level. Let’s see what’s in store!

MONDAY

In the wee hours of the morning, the Moon will go Void of Course. It then moves into brooding Scorpio mid-morning. We need to be careful that we don’t get swept away by mood-swings, irritability, or a desire to quickly change everything. This can be an emotionally difficult couple of days for some, as things like envy, jealousy, and other negative emotions start to surface. However, it is a good time for any occupation which needs intensity and total devotion.

TUESDAY

Today brings a challenging square between Venus and Pluto, which can help us reach a level of vulnerability in our relationships as well as within ourselves. We may encounter the darker side of our desires that we hide away from the rest of the world. Mainly, this transit can shed light on those problem areas in our lives that need to go through a bit of a transformative process in order to heal. It’s a quick planetary aspect thankfully.

WEDNESDAY

In the late morning hours, the Moon will go Void of Course briefly, and then shift into optimistic Sagittarius in the early afternoon. Sagittarius is all about generosity, openness, optimism and the desire to give advice and share experience. The next few days can be great for exploring, travel, and any activities and recreations taking place in the open air. It’s a nice light and upbeat energy to work with.

THURSDAY

Today sees the planet of communication, Mercury, moving into Scorpio for the next few weeks. This mix can help us read between the lines and dig for those answers we are after. This can be a very powerful period for talking about difficult issues regarding relationships, money and mortality. We do need to be careful of the more negative aspects of this mix because our minds can mistrust and be prone to fears.

FRIDAY

Friday morning starts off with the Moon going Void of Course, remaining in this phase until the early evening when it moves into Capricorn. It could give us a bit of a break from all of the emotional energies we have been feeling this week, turning our minds instead towards logical and practical views. The next few days are good for tasks that require discipline, structure, and planning ahead. We have Mars shifting into Libra today as well, which means that anger, aggression, and approaching things in an overly direct manner become a bit softer around the edges.

WEEKEND

Saturday is a quiet one, but we still have the energies of the Capricorn Moon to tap into if we have some projects that need our focus. On Sunday, the life-giving Sun makes a challenging square to the North Lunar Node, which is known for bringing a bit of conflict between our sense of identity and purpose with the lessons we are needing to learn in our lives. While changes and detours may feel uncomfortable for some, this transit can bring benefits our way that we would have otherwise passed up or missed had we not taken that detour. We may feel the effects of this Sun/Node transit for about a week and a half prior to, and a week and a half after this date. It can cause those areas that the Moon covers, such as our intuition, sensitivity and inner feelings, to feel unstable or out of balance.

Week Ahead – Monday, September 23rd through Sunday, September 29th

  • Posted on September 22, 2019 at 9:53 am

Happy Sunday everyone and Mabon/Autumn Equinox blessings! This is our last week of September already and it starts off under the nurturing vibes of a Cancer Moon. We have a T-square pattern that has been taking form, which could complicate things a bit this month as we strive to find balance. It can make us feel off-balance as, with every shift, we try to find our equilibrium. We have the Cancer Moon wanting to nurture others and be nurtured. Then there is Saturn and Pluto in serious-minded Capricorn that opposes the Moon, wanting us to stop whinging, get to work, and be practical. The third part of this T-square wants us to all share with others while we find a balance between our worldly responsibilities and our self-nurturing needs. Should be fun! Today will be a day for comforting things. We also have a challenging square going on between Mercury and Saturn, which can make us feel a bit drained and tired. It’s not the best time for any critical communication or thinking, so try to take it easy today as we ease ourselves into the week. Let’s see what’s in store!

MONDAY

Today is the Autumn Equinox and the day when the life-giving Sun moves into Libra. Happy Solar Return to all of you Libra folk out there! With the Sun in Libra, the focus is on finding balance, especially in our relationships. It can also be a time when decision making doesn’t come easily because we want to find we can see both sides of the argument/issue. Just before midnight, the Moon will go Void of Course.

TUESDAY

As we move into Tuesday morning, the Moon will still be Void of Course, where it will remain until just before midnight. The Moon then makes its shifts into heart-opening Leo, which speaks to our inner-child. It’s a time where we want to stand out for our own special qualities and is a strong time for romance and any creative activity as well. This can be an expansive, creative, and even romantic phase, a time you’ll look back on with pride and fondness.

WEDNESDAY

Our day begins with a sextile between Mercury and Jupiter, where we find that we not only have loads of ideas but also have the words needed to express them. It may be a good idea to write down your ideas at this time, especially those that can be further developed at a later time. Now is the time for playing with those ideas and having a bit of fun as we do. We then have a challenging square between Venus and Saturn, which can make it feel a bit difficult related to others. We need to try not to read too much into situations at this time, particularly with romantic and social circumstances. The best thing to do with this transit is to reflect on things. We also have a brief square between Venus and the North Lunar Node. Under this transit, we start to question the support we are or aren’t getting from others. It’s a short transit and most of the things that crop up tend to not be major issues. However, if something significant does occur, it’s a sign that we need to look more closely at the situation.

THURSDAY/FRIDAY

Just before Noon, the Moon moves into practical Virgo, where our focus turns to taking care of those little details and we are drawn towards getting organized. We just need to take care that we don’t become overly picky with others. We have a challenging square between Mercury and Pluto to contend with, and this transit has a tendency to lead us towards obsessive and impulsive interactions and behaviours with burn your bridges Pluto and quick speaking Mercury. It can a time of mental stress and pressure, so leave some time to take a step back from things when you feel a bit overwhelmed. Also, watch out for dramatic outbursts and events, both personally and globally. Lastly, we have an opposition between the life-giving Sun and Chiron. This transit needs us to move out of our comfort zone if we want to reach for those greater possibilities, which can be hard for some. Just keep in mind that taking action is not important for the moment, but rather tackling the dynamics of our current situation in order to bring ourselves to a decision when the time does

WEEKEND

In the early hours of Saturday morning, the Moon will be Void of Course. Just before Noon, it joins the Sun in balancing Libra. We have our Libra New Moon on Sunday and the energies for this weekend will be a bit of a challenge due to a challenge the Moon will be making to eccentric Uranus. We have one part of us wanting to share in our relationships, and another part of us feeling comfortable with our own independence. We want to both fit in with the world around us and be a bit rebellious all at once. It’s a good time for stepping outside the box and out of our comfort zones though. We have Saturn and the North Node in an opposition, which means the Sun is also conjunct the South Node. This is a time for reorganizing and reassessing so that we can make better use of our time and energy. Venus and Jupiter come together on Saturday as well, which can bring us a sense of having luck in finding opportunities for attracting love, money, and resources. We do need to remember that its best to use this energy to enhance our own better judgment rather than overriding it.

Week Ahead – Monday, September 16th through Sunday, September 22nd

Happy Sunday everyone! We’re moving into the second half of September and this week will bring us the second shift of a triple Capricorn alignment, which ends next year. This makes it a good time to start thinking about what shifts you want to make in 2020. Today, we are under the influence of an Aries Moon, making today and tomorrow a good time for getting our bodies moving. Let’s see what this week has in store for us.
 
MONDAY
 
Today starts off under that physical Aries energy, which will be in play for most of the day. By early evening the Moon will start its Void of Course phase. We also have a challenging opposition between Mercury and Chiron. This is a time when misunderstandings in communication can happen due to taking things too personally. Some may find it hard to make a clear cut decision right now too. The best way to deal with this energy is to make sure we take the time to think about what it is we wish to communicate beforehand, don’t overthink things and stick to what you feel is right in our heart
 
TUESDAY
 
Just before Noon today, the Moon will shift into Taurus, where we start to feel the tensions of the past few days drain away. This slower moving energy will be with us for the next couple of days and it makes it a good time for focusing on tasks around the house, like restocking supplies and taking care of errands. It’s not an ideal time for making important business decisions or signing contracts or important papers, because we may make mistakes due to a slowed-down reaction and thinking process. We also have Venus making an opposition to Chiron today, where we may see ongoing issues in relationships and finances go through a kind of healing crisis. While it may feel as if you are opening old wounds today, have patience going through this healing process.
 
WEDNESDAY
 
Wednesday sees Saturn ending its retrograde cycle that began last April. As mentioned earlier, this is the second of three shifts taking place between August and October that are part of a triple Capricorn alignment taking place next year. We may already feel that we have enough to deal with right now, but this is a good time for thinking about the things we would like to shift as we move into 2020.
 
THURSDAY/FRIDAY
 
Today begins with a harmonious trine between Mars and Pluto. This means that we can push forward in a powerful way, as long as we are not being obsessive or rude about it. We need to avoid hidden agents, as well as be transparent and simple in our actions. The Moon will go Void of Course in the early afternoon and then shift into Gemini later tonight. Gemini brings a talkative energy that supports social situations and projects that are quick and short. This energy will carry into the first part of the weekend.
 
WEEKEND
 
On Saturday, optimistic Jupiter makes a challenging square to psychic Neptune, a dance they have been having for most of this year, ending today. One part of us has felt called to new and expansive ways to live our lives, and another part of us feels a bit dazed and confused regarding what this even means. As these two planets begin moving away from each other now we will start to regain a sense of clarity in the weeks ahead.
 
Early Sunday morning starts off with a brief Void of Course Moon that then moves into Cancer. We start to feel the restlessness of the Gemini Moon gives way to an instinctive need for peace and quiet today. This is a time of increased emotions, vulnerability and touchiness. We feel a strong need for seclusion and a desire to communicate only with those closest to us. Spending time with our inner circle is best for today. However, it’s not a good idea to deal with large groups of people. Mercury is busy today as well, starting with a square with Saturn. This can make it feel like getting from point A to B is challenging so leave some room in your schedule for unexpected setbacks. Mercury then makes a square with the North Lunar Node later in the day. We may feel a need to do a complete 360 about where we have been headed on our life’s path. It’s a time where challenges occur, not to stop us, but to make us see more clearly.

Week Ahead – Monday, September 9th through Sunday, September 15th

  • Posted on September 8, 2019 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone and Happy Grandparents Day! Today’s vibe is a busy one with energy that will be changing quickly. We have a morning of mixed energy, with one part of us wanting to go off on an adventure, and the other part wanting to focus on practical tasks. As we move into the evening, the vibe changes to one that makes it great for deep conversations and discussing practical topics. Let’s have a look at what the rest of this week has in store for us.

MONDAY

Our morning begins with a Void of Course Moon. The day is best for tending to any routine tasks. We have Mars and Saturn in a trine today, which is great if you have a project that needs pushing into the next stage. A couple of hours before midnight, the Moon moves into Aquarius, bringing that feeling of wanting to break out of old routines. So, the next couple of days are good for reading, study and scientific pursuits. However, activities which require subordination and discipline, as well as jobs which bore you, will go from bad to worse now.

TUESDAY

Today brings an opposition between the Sun and Neptune. It’s an impractical transit, where we come face to face with the boundless Universe for a few days. The effect can make us feel as if we are losing sight of our boundaries, creating feelings of depression, confusion and lethargy. On a positive note, this transit can help us to see our dreams, hopes and illusions with more clarity. Use this time to express your feelings, perceptions and experiences in creative, artistic, poetic and non-rational ways.

WEDNESDAY

We have a bit more of a social vibe for today. The Moon will go Void of Course in the early morning. We also have a sextile between Mars and the North Lunar Node. For the next few days, it may seem that opportunities are coming our way, and we tend to have more energy, passion, and motivation than usual. Bear in mind that this energy could come in any form, not just positive energy, but anger, vindictiveness, hostility and rejection as well. So use this opportunity wisely!

THURSDAY

Mid-morning, the Moon will shift into Pisces, which heightens our intuition and brings a dreamy energy our way. It brings a nice boost to creative projects, but we could find it hard to deal with the harsher aspects of reality. We have a challenging square going on between Mars and Jupiter as well, pulling us back and forth between tiredness and action. The best way to deal with this today is to go slow and keep moving forward.

FRIDAY

Today is our harvest Full Moon, which is taking place in Pisces. It’s great for opening up our intuition to a higher vision, and for daydreaming. Thankfully, we have the Sun and Mars in practical Virgo to help keep us grounded. This Moon challenges us to bring expansive ideas into the mundane world to work on for the greater good. We do need to watch out for bouncing back and forth between our intuitive voice and our critical voice, however. We have Mercury conjunct Venus helping us with positive social connections, diplomatic communications, and receptive awareness. We may find we are drawn to things of beauty and pleasure now too. We also have a trine between the Sun and Pluto, which makes today a good one for clearing things out and getting rid of whatever has become outworn or unnecessary in our lives.

WEEKEND

Early Saturday morning starts off with an Aries Moon, so make sure you do things that will help burn off any excess energy. We also have both Venus and Mercury moving into Libra until early October. This will help us out with any diplomatic conversation skills, improving our existing relationships, and brings a good opportunity for improving our social connections. We do need to avoid being a people pleaser though. Mars and Neptune will be in an opposition today as well. This is a transit that is about growth that evolves from resolved conflict. When we have an opposition, it feels like a tug of war going on between two opposing forces. All of that Libra energy now will help us bring balance between both sides. Sunday is a fairly quiet one in the skies for us, but we still have that active Aries energy to tap into.

Week Ahead – Monday, September 2nd through Sunday, September 8th

  • Posted on September 1, 2019 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone! We are at the start of a new month now and September has several planetary connections that will help get things moving. The best way to deal with things is to keep move through the highs and lows because we won’t have any major highs or lows to get through. We also have Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto ending their retrograde cycles, which will also help to get things moving forward again. This coming week will be a busy one for us, with a mix of days that are high energy and days where we just feel like having a nap. So, let’s see what’s in store.

MONDAY

Our Monday morning starts with a Void of Course Moon. It’s Labor Day in the USA and the Sun will be in a conjunction with Mars the help get us moving. We may feel that we have a lot of energy to burn, but take care not to overdo things. Venus makes a challenging square to Jupiter today as well, adding to that tendency to overdo things. It brings a generous vibe but we have to remember to set those boundaries so that we don’t go overboard, especially with our spending.

TUESDAY

In the wee hours of the morning, the Moon moves into Scorpio, which allows us to delve deep into any projects that catch our interest. However, this isn’t the best energy for doing things that our hearts are not into. Adding to this is a conjunction between Mercury and Mars, which is great if you need to get focused on things. Its an impulsive and spontaneous energy and we need to take care of letting things fly out of our mouths before thinking. Its a good energy for decision making and moving forward with plans. The Sun will be in a conjunction with Mercury to add to this energy, compelling us to communicate and initiate new activities. Lastly, we have a sextile between Venus and the North Lunar Node. It’s a transit that lets our charm and charisma shone more brightly, and one where we can discover resources that we didn’t realize we had.

WEDNESDAY

The Moon will be in its quiet Void of Course phase all day today, making this a good time for doing quiet projects that we already have underway It’s not a time for initiating new projects, however. We have Venus in an opposition with Neptune today as well, so our thinking may not be very clear. The best advice with this transit is to hold off on making any big important purchases, starting new relationships, avoid legal and financial decisions, the signing of contracts and agreements, and social involvements for the next day or so.

THURSDAY

The Moon moves into optimistic Sagittarius in the early morning, bringing us some much-needed peace and stability. Generosity, openness, optimism and the desire to give advice and share experiences are all increased now. Mercury makes a harmonious trine with Saturn as well today, which is great for ideas and critical thinking. It’s a good energy for finding ways in which we can bring closure to any unfinished or just completed goals to make way for new ones.

FRIDAY

Friday is a busy one and our morning starts off with a quiet Void of Course Moon. Mercury will be busy today, first making a challenging square to Jupiter and then a sextile to the North Lunar Node. The Mercury/Jupiter aspect can bring information overload, so if you can slow down or sneak off today, go for it. The Mercury/North Node aspect highlights movement and how we plan and communicate our destiny. The Sun makes a supportive trine with Saturn, bringing a down to earth vibe that helps bring us into contact with ourselves, helping us to get to know ourselves through our relationships, our environment, and our effect on others. To wrap things up, Venus makes a harmonious trine to Pluto, which makes this a good opportunity for deepening or renewing a previous commitment in a relationship.

WEEKEND

Saturday brings the Moon into Capricorn just before noon. It’s a good energy for tackling practical tasks, and those that require extra responsibility and discipline. Mercury makes a challenging opposition to Neptunes later in the day, which brings us inspired thinking, mental fantasy, imaginative ideas and lucid dreams. It can bring enormous creativity that inspires us but our perception may be a bit off as well.

Sunday brings a square between the life-giving Sun and Jupiter, giving the day an enthusiastic and upbeat energy. We want to expand beyond our boundaries but need to take care that we don’t reach too far beyond our means or promising more than we can give. This can be a challenging time where important lessons could emerge that help to expand the limits of our true beliefs. The Sun also makes a sextile with the North Lunar Node today. For 2 to 3 days around this time, we need to pay attention to people who cross our paths, because they may be able to offer support, resources, and connections that are helpful to us. Later in the day, Mercury makes a harmonious trine to Pluto, allowing us to get to the heart of things. Its a good afternoon for mental activities, investigation, and concentration. During this transit, it may be a good idea to write down our thoughts and ideas so that we can review them again once this transit has slipped by.
