Welcome to this space of the magazine. The one you connect with each month. The moon, the sun. Your spiritual being.
This is an invitation for you to set intentions and reflect throughout the month of October at key moments that punctuate the solar and lunar cycles – a form of soul nourishment.
Have courage, dear heart… This is a month for the Sun and the Moon. Grab a cup of tea (or coffee), your journal, and an open mind.
Let us get started.
SUN in Libra and Scorpio
September 23rd – October 22nd:
Libra: connect with balance. Your own energetic scales. Co-create harmony with those around you. Elegance, diplomacy, and fairness.
It is a time to use your skills of diplomacy in order to hear both sides of a story. You may feel called to embrace both in your artistry of life, the light and the shadow. Create contrast. Libra energy ruled by Venus gives you time to honor the need for harmony, peace, love, and collaboration.
The Shadow of Libra is about indecisiveness and lost of the sense of self. Take a journal and a pen.
- How do I balance my own needs with the reality of my life?
- What co-creation am I feeling called to birth in harmony with others?
October 23rd – November 21st:
Scorpio: connection to intuition, emotion, taboo, and sex. Death and rebirth. Power and renewing.
A time to reflect on the principle of death and rebirth. The intention of facing your fears and knowing and stepping into your own power. Death to us means clarifying your values and being deeply aligned with your vision.
Scorpio is inviting you to embrace the playfulness and sexual part of yourself.
Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, which is all about taboo.
The shadow of Scorpio is about being defensive, secretive, and vengeful. Take a journal and a pen.
- What is relevant to who you are today?
- What is transforming right now, subtle or deeply?
MOON with Full Moon in Taurus + New Moon in Libra
Create a ritual to connect with the moon. Let me share more about the moon phases and how to honor these.
Last Quarter Moon: Re-evaluate. Last Quarter Moon at 14° in Cancer (Friday 6.10 at 8.48 AM CDT, 2.48 PM BST, and Saturday 07.10 at 12.48 AM AEDT).
The time to surrender.
Virgo Intention + Cancer Moon = Earth + Water element connection.
Cancer is all about yin; it is cardinal and is a water sign. Yin is all about divine feminine, and water is about embracing our emotions. The sign of cancer represents nourishment and feeling safe; it is a nurturer.
I encourage you to double down on the Cancer need for emotional nourishment.
Cancer is all about the softness and feminine parts of the body, so look after those parts. This is a time for nourishment. What self-care rituals can you embrace at this time? Take a journal and a pen.
- How can I nourish myself right now?
- What self-care ritual will help me to surrender? To let go?
New Moon: Set Intention. New Moon at 21° in Libra + Solar Eclipse (Saturday 14.10 at 12.55 PM CDT, 6.55 PM BST and Sunday 15.10 at 4.55 AM AEDT).
In the darkness. Connect with the seeds to be planted.
Libra Intention + Libra Moon = Air + Air element connection.
Libra is the yang. The doing. It connects to the element of air. It is about bringing together the balance. To co-create harmony with those around you.
The energy of Libra is inviting you to move towards connection with fairness and respect.
- To collaborate across different cultures and social categories.
- To bring justice. To bring truth and reconciliation to all.
Plus, we have a solar eclipse! This is a perfect time for rebirth and all aligned with a New Moon in Libra. Take a journal and a pen.
- What is arising, what is my New Moon intention?
- How can I embrace fairness and respect within myself for this moon cycle?
First Quarter Moon: Commitment. FQ Moon at 29° in Capricorn (Saturday 21.10 at 10.29 PM CDT, Sunday 22.10 at 4.29 AM BST and at 2.29 PM AEDT).
This is the time to take action. The time to grow. In the first Quarter Moon, you take inspired action toward the plans you have created.
Libra Intention + Capricorn Moon = Air + Earth element connection.
Capricorn is the yin. The being. It connects to the element of Earth. Capricorn has a powerful energy to make sense of what is complex. What might have felt otherwise hard to understand?
Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which is putting an emphasis on what is earned over time, such as achievements, recognitions, or authority. Take a journal and a pen.
- How can you step into your authority right now?
- What achievements make you the authority in your space?
Full Moon: Illuminate. Full Moon at 6° in Taurus + Lunar Eclipse (Saturday 28.10 at 3.24 PM CDT, 9.24 AM BST and Sunday 29.10 at 7.24 AM AEDT).
Expression of the need to embody passion. Under the Full Moon, all is illuminated. The seeds and intentions planted in the recent New Moon are revealed.
Libra Intention + Taurus Moon = Air + Earth element connection.
Taurus is a yin sign that embodies manifestation. As it is a fixed sign and an Earth sign it is all about feeling stable and grounded. Being productive by being in our bodies. Creating using our hands, our souls, and our minds.
It is about embodiment. It is a sign that brings in practicality. Everything is slow and steady. Connect to the abundance you have. It is about the symbol of connection to the cyclical rhythm. Taurus is full of abundance! It is time to invite financial stability and manifestation in the material world. Drop into your senses and physical presence. Connect with pleasure, beauty, and nature.
The Full Moon invites you to embrace the need to improve it all and just let it be. Take a journal and a pen.
- What do I need to release in order to bring in more abundance?
- What mindset blocker is stopping me from the abundance I deserve?
