“We will not be lost to these times. We will not be lost to these tides.” ~ Eleanor Brown
This week and the rest of October will be extremely volatile – anything could happen and probably will.
The events of this week signal the dam breaking on the uneasy stasis we’ve experienced during the retrograde summer months, as Great Eliminator Pluto stations direct square Mars on October 10 at 27 Capricorn, turning to head back into Aquarius in January 2024.
It’s time to clean up unfinished business – what in your life is being permanently deleted?
Like volcanic lava, raw relentless power seethes just below the surface as Pluto squares the first of October’s 2 eclipses – a rare Ring of Fire solar eclipse at 21 Libra conjunct the karmic South Node of Fate – the first since October 3 2005. Make a note of the seismic geo-physical eclipse window between 12th-16th October to reduce your agenda, get extra hydration and stay in neutrality.
Be prepared to safeguard finances and resources and face the truth about important relationships.
This new Aries/Libra eclipse series began in April 2023 and will end in March 2025. The Dharmic/Karmic theme is the changing nature of the contracts and values we live by collectively and personally and the quality of the relationships underpinning them. In the next 14 months, the extreme polarisation that has simmered for so long will begin to erupt

Chandra Symbol Solar Eclipse LIBRA 22:
An ancient glass vial perfectly preserved.
“Soul-memory. Intensively held to ancient faculties. A stunning quality of still feeling the way people felt a very long time ago. A super-sensitivity hidden and protected. Underneath being vastly in tune with realms of existence, places, and times that to others are remote but that to you are closer than close. Your unsurpassed ability to bring other realities into this world faithfully, accurately and dispassionately has a dazzling array of accompanying treasures, which include feeling virtually immune to contemporary egoisms and having no problem at all imagining and bringing to life absolutely anything. A repository of timeless knowledge to draw from, yet it is self-replenishing–the bottomless well of source knowingness, unaffected by time, by circumstance, or by any changes you go through. Riches that bear integrity and conviction, and quickly disappear out of view when called to compromise or compete. It is all inside, and it is complete, and it is so very true.”
