Kali or Kwan Yin? Your Choice
Tread softly, cautiously and carefully this week. This potent astrology is concealing deep hidden undercurrents. Venus, in the Via Combusta and Pluto’s own sign, descending into the underworld, is at odds with Mars in detached Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus; the New Moon in Venus ruled Libra conjunct Ceres is a Kali Moon square Pluto and on the constellation of trickster Corvus the Crow. Mercury activates the Nodes of Fate and the Great Attractor, the Voice of God bringing new information direct from the noosphere or cloud.
Erupting from the New Moon/Pluto Kali activation, emotions will be running high with many people hyper-sensitive, volatile and full of rage. The obvious trigger and release point is the extreme polarisation between the entitled masculine and the marginalised feminine playing out in the USA and across the world. Old injuries, wounding, resentments and disowned memories are surfacing, demanding release and acknowledgment. Watch for news of public reckonings and revelations between October 8-12.
During Venus’ 40 days and night in the retrograde wilderness between October 5th and November 16th, you’re stripping and being stripped right back to essentials. The more you withdraw your energy from anything external that leads to soul defragmentation, the more energy you have available to self-sustain, self-generate and self-realise and the more energised, present and alive you become. Draw up an Absolute YES / Absolute NO list based on your core values — What is so essential to you, it feels like breathing? Then whenever a choice arises, listen to your body signals. If it’s not an absolute YES, it’s a NO. You’re letting an old life go dark and allowing a new one to light up.
What you say NO to is as important as what you agree to, so ask yourself:
What is chronic, repetitive or inflamed in my inner or outer life?
What am I settling for, putting up with or barely tolerating?
Where, with whom and with what am I finished /done?
Where am I resisting what I know to be true?
And what am I going to do about it?
The way through this polarisation is to express and vent your true feelings — Kali — whilst being a “Good Mother “to yourself — Ceres/Venus as Kwan Yin. When the world feels unforgiving, demanding, harsh and negligent, generously and lovingly give yourself what you need.
“Magic working simultaneously from two divergent levels. The regular, human, everyday magic of holding yourself together as a complex mix by sheer intent. And the deeper magic of yielding to the passions, desires, impulses of the subconscious levels. Utterly absorbed in the deep forces of body and soul. But meanwhile bending over backwards to frame everything as normal. This is extremely difficult to maintain. It is fragile, delicate, and dangerous. You urge yourself onward to work this magic and wield it with the same kind of life-force that stands at the edge of an abyss and stays on that edge in a balancing act that may capsize at any moment. And it is the most dazzling cross between sheer foolishness and a wizard’s mastery.”
Aries Weekly Forecast: October 7-14 2018
Any week that begins with a New Moon in your relationship zone at odds with Pluto is a time to tread carefully. The more you step away from dramas of any kind-yours or other people’s-the happier you will be. Personal planets Venus and Mercury are aligned with volatile and unpredictable Uranus and the Nodes of Fate so bridges burned in the heat of the moment now can’t be rebuilt. That doesn’t mean you have to be a doormat but pick your moment to make your case, especially where a career issue is at stake. Instead of waiting for the world to reward you, be your own best sponsor, mentor and cheerleader.
A test of your resilience.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: October 7-14 2018
Since May, hosting volatile Uranus in your sign has been ramping up your out- of- thin- blue- air surprise quotient, so this week, expect the unexpected. With both your ruler Venus and Messenger Mercury at odds with the Awakener, someone or something is going to shake up your view of yourself by giving you a close look at your blindsides. Instead of overreacting or throwing the baby out with the bath water, take it on board for further investigation in your own time. The truth always helps you move forward and levers you out of your comfort zone. And that’s when the magic happens.
Opening to new possibilities.
Gemini Weekly Forecast: October 7-14 2018
With planet of the unexpected Uranus hidden deep in the engine room of your chart, shocks and surprises could come straight out of left field. They could be either a wakeup call or a warning but whichever it proves to be, don’t ignore the message. Your ruler Mercury is at odds with change agent Pluto in your 8th House of finances and resources, suggesting you check then double check the bottom line where money is concerned. With Venus travelling backwards, your tastes, your money, your relationships, your values, anything you love, are being stripped back to essentials. In this cosmic climate, better to be overcautious than risk everything.
Shoring up your security.
Cancer Weekly Forecast: October 7-14 2018
Anytime a New Moon activates the angles-underpinnings -of your chart means change is on the cards. And Monday’s Libra New Moon at odds with Pluto in your career zone is definitely raising the stakes. If it feels strangely familiar, that’s because since November 2008 Pluto has been relentlessly nudging or even pushing you to leave the dead wood behind and move on. By now, you know that hiding your head in the sand just makes things worse and a difficult situation is not going to magically disappear. This beautiful New Moon is sowing the seeds of a new, happier cycle but first you have to make a clean break with the old.
What advice would you give someone in your situation?
Leo Weekly Forecast: October 7-14 2018
This is a week to find your own entertainment and leave other people to their problems and dramas. Monday’s New Moon in your zone of connection is at odds with change agent Pluto, so one wrong word could set off a wave of criticism or recriminations. Add to that Mars in your relationship zone and mixed messages could soon create personal or professional crossed wires. Stay on the side lines and make your wellbeing your top priority. When the world feels like an unfriendly place, you need to create your own sanctuary, treating yourself with love so that you emerge feeling renewed, revived and regenerated.
Ask yourself: what always lifts my spirits? Then go out and experience it all.
Virgo Weekly Forecast: October 7-14 2018
Keep reminding yourself that happiness is an inside job -which might be a cliché but is definitely true. No matter what’s happening to you or around you, you choose how you feel in any given moment. Your mind is a projector, not a camera. The planetary weather this week is potentially volatile starting with a New Moon on Monday and your ruler Mercury at odds with unforgiving Pluto and unpredictable Uranus. Finances could be in the frame, so doublecheck the bottom line and stop any leakages. As a resourceful Earth sign, let others run around like headless chickens while you stick quietly to your agenda.
You are the sky, everything else is just weather.
Libra Weekly Forecast: October 7-14 2018
Monday’s annual New Moon in your sign marks your personal New Year- don’t let it pass without setting some intentions to act as your compass for the coming 12 months. If you’re feeling weary or disheartened, take some time out for some much needed self- care. It’s not selfish -it’s essential if you want to sidestep burnout. Mercury in your sign is at odds with Pluto, Uranus and the Nodes of Fate suggesting that one particular situation has run out of road. If so, disentangle yourself and frame it as a positive step towards new opportunities. When your ruler Venus backtracks into Libra in November, you’ll see the first signs of new growth.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: October 7-14 2018
Monday’s New Moon falls in the engine room of your chart which encompasses your secrets, hopes, dreams and memories. If you’re weary it’s because you’re reaching the end of a long cycle which will complete on October 23rd.So take heart -if you’ve done due diligence, the rewards are on their way. Make the very most of expansionist Jupiter’s last month in your sign for the next 12 years by wringing the juice out of every passing opportunity, especially where your career or purpose in life is concerned. You may just get an offer out of thin air that’s too good to pass up. When you believe it, you’ll see it.
In sight of the finishing line.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: October 7-14 2018
Remember the old saying:” The only constant is change”? Well keep it in mind this week as your plans are disrupted by events beyond your control. Frame it as an opportunity to permanently disentangle yourself from a situation that is dead in the water so that you can focus on new projects. October has the potential to be one of your best months to wear your creative entrepreneurial hat and to ask for the backing and support you need. You’ll need to sell your ideas to win people over so make sure your financial blueprint is solid and above all realistic. Whenever Saturn and Pluto are in the frame, you can’t cut corners and hope to get away with it.
The magic lies outside your comfort zone.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: October 7-14 2018
Now that change agent Pluto has turned forward again in your sign in cahoots with planet of potential Saturn, make closure, completion and pruning your watchwords. Any situation, relationship or plan that has no life left in it needs to be left by the side of the road. No looking back. You need to be free and clear at Monday’s New Moon at the pinnacle of your chart to take your career up a level. With planet of out-of-the-blue surprises Uranus in the frame, be prepared for new information or sudden insights to re-draw your blueprint. See this as a gift not an interruption.
Eyes on the future.
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: October 7-14 2018
Drop hard and fast expectations and stop trying to second guess what’s going to happen. The one thing that’s certain about this week’s astrology is that the twists and turns will take you on a magical mystery tour. With Mercury and Venus at the pinnacle of your chart and at odds with Mars in your own sign, there will be news about your career that could set you in a new direction. Think bigger, have faith and allow an old life to go dark so that a new one can emerge. This transformation has been coming all year, gathering pace through the recent eclipses and will reach fruition in January 2019.
All is well.
Pisces Weekly Forecast: October 7-14 2018
This is a time when staying out of the faster flowing currents will work in your favour. With Monday’s New Moon in your 8th House of resources and finances under scrutiny from eliminator Pluto, far better to deal head on with reality than to build castles in the air. If you’re already in negotiations, expect to be left hanging for a definite answer and chill out. Don’t take anything personally but do take responsibility for what is yours to manage. Just about everyone will be making irrational decisions in this seismic New Moon window so stay well away from problems and dramas and focus on your own security.
Smoke and mirrors.
