October 2022 Forecast and Fourth Quarter North Node Horoscopes

OCTOBER 2022 FORECAST

October 1 Venus in Libra opposite Jupiter in Aries. A positive start to the month! Venus and Jupiter often bring good things even in opposition. Self-esteem, confidence and supportive relationships get a boost today. Pause for two days before deciding to splurge if it would put you into debt, but allow yourself to expand, celebrate and upgrade now if you can afford to do so.

October 2 Mercury stations direct in Virgo. After three weeks of miscommunications, lost emails and misunderstandings, the Messenger sets things in order once again in one of his home signs. Expect more details to surface regarding any situations since September 9, but Mercury is also the cosmic trickster. His actions reverberate through future and past Rx periods and stations, so we might receive information about other times Mercury stationed direct. November 3, 2020 was one such time. Whatever information arises will be thorough. Mercury in Virgo digs and communicates in more comprehensive ways than Mercury in his other home sign, Gemini.

October 3-6 Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus. Although this square goes exact by degree and not to the minute, we will feel it! Saturn-Square-Uranus energy colored all of 2021 with its controversial mandates and protests. Questions of top down authority vs. individual rights re-surge. Food scarcity vs. food sovereignty, electricity, Big Tech, financial systems, transhumanism, and censorship also rise as key topics. Frustration peaks. So do demands for creative solutions. In order to benefit from this friction, look for nuances, irony and opportunity. You cannot comply yourself out of tyranny, but revolution with no plan breeds anarchy, which then breeds another form of tyranny. Aim for evolution, beyond mere revolution.

October 8 Pluto stations direct in Capricorn. After a deep dive since April 29, Lord of the Underworld prepares to resurface. All those hidden things you thought would never see the light of day? Pluto drags ’em up when he’s good and ready. Nobody pushes Pluto around. Resistance is futile. Try to suppress that force, and you’ll find death, destruction and devastation like you never imagined. Work with Pluto, and he brings healing, rebirth and regeneration beyond your wildest dreams. Ignore him at your peril. If you’ve ever wanted to clean house, do so now. You have support.

October 9 Full Moon in Aries, 4:55 p.m. Eastern US time. The Full Moon conjuncts Chiron, alerting us to a need for healing. The Sabian Symbol for this “Blood Moon” is: (ARIES 17°): TWO DIGNIFIED SPINSTERS SITTING IN SILENCE. The symbol encourages us to pull inside ourselves, yet paradoxically to do so together. We must tend to our own inner landscape, but group meditations and prayer bring powerful results. Consider sitting in silence with one or more people, and holding an intention for love and healing. Nature and animal friends count, too! If you don’t have a person to meditate with, expand your idea of solidarity. Heads up: this Full Moon conjuncts the start-of-Watergate Chiron and sits between the US natal Chiron and transiting Chiron. An extremely challenging and painful time for the United States.

October 10 Mercury re-enters Libra. The Messenger moves from gathering all the details to communicating them in a manner that fosters harmony, partnership, grace and beauty. The next few weeks help to build — rather than burn — bridges.

October 11-12 Sun in Libra trine Saturn in Aquarius, Mercury in Libra opposite Jupiter in Aries, and Mars in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces. These are big energy days with lots of aspects. Huge revelations shatter illusions. A difficult, but potentially productive time, provided we balance multiple perspectives. Action seems slower than desired. Small sacrifices occur in order to win a much larger spiritual war. Although some of these actions focus on politics and the legal realm, we must transcend ego to understand philosophical and spiritual context of events.

October 17-18 Sun and Venus in Libra trine Mars in Gemini. Light and love infuse willpower and action. You’ll feel more motivated and optimistic about your prospects. Romance, creativity and potential breakthroughs are in the air.

October 19-20 Sun and Venus in Libra square Pluto in Capricorn. An intense period that highlights power dynamics within relationships. Beware of manipulation, compulsions and obsessions that lead to volatile situations. Breakthroughs and deep intimacy are possible, but these are highly charged days. Pay attention to uncomfortable feelings and realizations that rise to the surface. Dreams and visceral reactions offer deep insights.

October 23 Sun and Venus enter Scorpio and Saturn stations direct in Aquarius. The dial for intensity and commitment turns up several notches. Beware of jealousy and a desire for revenge. Focus instead on intimacy, revelations, and deep, solid connection.

October 25 New Moon in Scorpio and Solar Eclipse, 6:49 a.m. Eastern US time. This New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs at exactly 2°00′ Scorpio. This degree emphasizes sacrifice of something old and cherished, the surrender of which allows us to move forward. Venus sits in the same degree, bringing love and beauty to the process of transmutation. Memories remain but new life beckons.

October 28 Jupiter retrograde re-enters Pisces. For clues about how Jupiter’s return to Pisces might affect you, look back to April 2022, as well as September 2010 – January 22, 2011. Many of the same degrees will reactivate. Faith soars, and we feel uplifted. Things that began during those times will return, evolve, or spiral in larger ways between now and December 20, 2022.

October 29 Mercury enters Scorpio. The time between now and November 17 favors deep research, powerful communication and offers a good opportunity to make amends. Sincere apologies go a long way during Mercury in Scorpio. They also buffer a tendency to use words as weapons. Keen insights arise, often through hidden channels. The subconscious finds freer expression, and we might find ourselves sharing secrets in more intimate and vulnerable ways. It seems easier to process dark, disturbing information. The collective worldview could undergo radical transformation during this period.

October 30 Mars stations retrograde in Gemini. Let the games begin! Mars is extra active in Gemini, and will retrace the path he’s traveled since September 3, 2022. Mars remains retrograde until January 12, 2023. We’ll feel a push-pull of activity mixed with a need for greater patience in order to get things right. Anyone with planets or angles in the 3-29 degree range of Gemini, Pisces, Virgo or Sagittarius will feel this in a major way. The US natal chart’s Uranus, Mars and Descendant get triple fly-by’s from the God of War, Will and Action. Activity pauses the day before Samhain/Halloween, one of the thinnest veil times of the year. A good day to honor Ancestors who fought for you in their time.

How October’s sky weather affects you will vary, depending on your entire natal chart, but your North Node Horoscope transcends monthly sky events. That’s because your North Node reveals what your soul came here to do. By midlife, the soul starts longing and pressing us to live our true purpose. At first, it whispers through intuition. Then it knocks a little louder through “coincidences” and external events. When not heard and honored, the soul’s longing can show up as health crises, marriage or work issues, or wondering “is this all there is?” If you feel a need to reinvent yourself, following North Node guidance helps you do that authentically — for you.

Unlike generic Sun Sign horoscopes, which ignore so many other aspects, following North Node guidance will always lead you in the right direction. Doors open, healing happens, relationships improve, and life gets more magical. This quarterly column will help you tap into your personal North Node Mojo. When you start living your North Node purpose, we all win, because you not only begin to light up your own life. You light up the world.     

You can find your North Node sign here which is often different than your Sun sign. If you’re right on the cusp, consider both possibilities or book a reading for more clarity.

FOURTH QUARTER 2022 NORTH NODE HOROSCOPES

ARIES NORTH NODE: You have what it takes to triumph in these challenging times! Fear not. You were made to rise to the occasion. Your path is more about action than daydreaming, but strategic visualization helps you to succeed. Don’t sacrifice yourself to or for anyone else. If you can’t see a way forward, you’ll find victory by turning your perspective upside down and inside out. Mars, your North Node sign’s ruler, assists from Gemini. “Hurry up and wait” marks this quarter. You’re on a need to know basis, but when you get the nudge to act, do! You want to hide from conflict and confrontation, but you benefit from wisely chosen battles. Courage breeds opportunity.

TAURUS NORTH NODE: October and November highlight your North and South Node axis, with key planets moving through Taurus and Scorpio. The Sun, Venus and Mercury in Scorpio, bring up old relationships, worldviews and versions of yourself for review. The November 8 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus reactivates the Mars-Uranus-North Node conjunction from late July/early August. You’ve got another powerful chance to set intentions and manifest something new. Remember, Taurus North Node natives benefit from step-by-step progress rather than Scorpio’s trauma-drama. Repeat and build upon prior successes instead of demanding change in one fell swoop.

GEMINI NORTH NODE: This is a quarter to get things done! With Mars crisscrossing your North Node sign, you can expect activation and opportunity. Just because it hasn’t happened yet doesn’t mean it will not happen now. Watch for signs and synchronicities. These arrive like love notes from the Universe, telling you to keep exploring, keep playing, and keep finding new avenues to delight. The December 7-8 Full Moon in Gemini almost exactly conjuncts Mars. This event marks a powerful time to challenge old dogma and welcome new ways of engaging life. You are so much more than your past. Enjoy the journey and increased pace.

CANCER NORTH NODE: A surprisingly active quarter, even without conjunctions in your North Node sign. Uranus in Taurus, Neptune in Pisces and trines from Scorpio offer positive transformation to your nodal axis. In December, the Sun, Mercury and Venus traverse your South Node sign of Capricorn, bringing a chance to review old relationships, worldviews and self-conceptions. How can you integrate the best of the old with where your soul longs to go? You might need periods of rest and retreat in order to make the most of opportunities for emotional and spiritual liberation. Take time to nurture yourself and others.

LEO NORTH NODE: Friction continues from significant activity in Taurus, Scorpio and Aquarius. You might feel a vague sense of irritation or impatience, but pay attention to opportunities that arise from “nowhere.” Mars in Gemini sextiles your North Node and offers subtle, yet strong support. Solutions to your challenges don’t always scream for attention, but they do arrive. A combination of hard work, passion and divine dispensation makes this quarter highly productive. Your financial situation could change for the better as your ships come into harbor. Stay grounded and tapped into your radiant heart. It will lead you well.

VIRGO NORTH NODE: Fourth Quarter 2022 could shatter grand illusions and New Age platitudes. If you find your faith shaken, take time to ground yourself in daily tasks and rituals. Tend to your health, your finances and your worldview. When the bigger picture stops making sense, drop into the details. Gather information and see how things begin to fit together. Resist the urge to generalize too fast or to skip over ugly facts and figures. When you face “the worst case scenario,” you find tremendous strength. If you orient your mind towards service, you’ll discover silver linings to everything you thought you lost. Beware of alcohol, sugar and drugs. You’ll make better decisions without their influence.

LIBRA NORTH NODE: October brings opportunities for love, romance and teamwork. Connections offer greater satisfaction and security than forging ahead on your own. December’s Capricorn energies square your nodal axis, creating productive friction. Pay attention to insights about your own inner conflicts, then aim for harmony inside and out. Take time to relax and retreat when needed. The Universe operates in its own timing. You can position yourself well for its arrival, but you can’t rush destiny. Whenever you feel impatient, look for and create more beauty. Focus on relationships with those walking similar paths.

SCORPIO NORTH NODE: Fourth Quarter 2022 brings Eclipse Season to your nodal axis. The October 25 New Moon in Scorpio Solar Eclipse conjuncts Venus to bring extra blessings to Scorpio North Node natives. An extended passage of Sun, Venus and Mercury in Scorpio highlights destined revelations about your identity, relationships, self-esteem and worldview. You’ll find deep insights into subconscious motivations and how things work. The Great Mystery tips its hand to you. The November 8 Full Moon in Taurus Lunar Eclipse helps you to release old things standing in the way of your happiness.

SAGITTARIUS NORTH NODE: Mars in Gemini stirs things up by activating your South Node sign. You might feel overwhelmed by too many details, distractions and obligations. When in doubt, take the higher, broader view. You can’t be all things to everyone. Find what you love and stick to it, even if that means hard work and a period of apprenticeship. Don’t scatter your energies. You succeed by taking things to their biggest and brightest conclusion. In November, the Sun, Mercury and Venus enter your North Node sign, bringing powerful, destiny aligned encounters. The November 23 New Moon in Sagittarius allows you to realign and shine.

CAPRICORN NORTH NODE: Fourth Quarter 2022 brings a sense of karmic balance and success after a long, tricky journey. You feel more sovereign, more grounded and others recognize your accomplishments. December lights up your North Node sign, especially around the time of the December 23 New Moon in Capricorn. At the end of December, Mercury stations retrograde in Capricorn, so prepare to finish things ahead of the 29th, or expect some major reworkings of destiny level projects and structures. You’ll know whether to finish or await this natural time of review. Just pay attention to which doors open and which ones seem difficult or impossible to enter.

AQUARIUS NORTH NODE: The Saturn-Uranus Square from October 3-6 affects Aquarius North Node natives more than most, because Saturn and Uranus co-rule your sign. When in doubt, you’ll need to lean more towards group harmony and innovation, rather than a “my way or the highway” attitude. With Saturn traversing your sign since December 2017, you may have felt delayed gratification or constriction. Saturn stations direct on October 23, bringing forward momentum as he moves through the rest of Aquarius before entering Pisces on March 7, 2023. Saturn’s not the most popular, but he does troubleshoot for success. Use this time to build a strong foundation for your future.

PISCES NORTH NODE: This is an important quarter for you. Mars squares your nodal axis as he crisscrosses Gemini. This tension creates opportunities that help you to realign with your soul’s true north. You might feel tempted to go into your mind, trying to figure out everything on the mental level, but you’ll find inspiration and grace by tending to your emotions and spirituality. Calm the stormy seas, commit to a glorious Mystery, and allow yourself to retreat from worldly cares. You have nothing to be ashamed of, Pisces. Perfection’s not the goal anymore. Peace, harmony, grace, beauty and unconditional compassion are. Your sign’s ruler, Neptune, stations direct on December 3. If things have felt surreal and slow, don’t worry. Something big is moving in your favor.

New Moon in Libra ~ September 25, 2022

Just a reminder … we are in these energies filled with potential.

I’ve all but finished the next commissioned portal painting, “Strength.” I just need to glue the crystals tomorrow morning. May we all opt for the highest and truest path so that the Dawn of a New Day delights and empowers. Much love and Happy New Moon!

Laura Bruno's Blog

Given all the chatter around “September 24,” I’m posting this ahead of time so people can prepare for the energies. I keep telling clients that it’s VERY difficult right now to pin down exactly what will happen when. So many moving parts are in effect. It feels like life is screaming, “Category 5 Hurricane, Category 5 Hurricane.”

My personal sense is that yes, we are approaching a metaphorical hurricane, and things LOOK bad in some areas. I feel like we’ll wind up with more of a Category 2 Hurricane — significant change, some of it quite radical, but I feel like humanity is actually on the most positive timeline available right now. Some areas won’t even experience a hurricane, just much needed rain. Some people and some areas will have targeted tornadoes in addition to that Category 2 Hurricane. I speak in metaphors, but perhaps also literally.

Bottom line, the…

Happy Equinox!

It looks and feels like Fall here, as asters, mums, marigolds, and sedum flaunt their autumn colors:

We also had a whirlwind trip to the Pennsylvania mountains this past weekend for David’s 40th high school reunion. As we arrived at the Seven Springs Resort, I realized I had been there before. Back in 1997 — in a totally different lifetime — I won a three day weekend getaway and took my mom there as a special treat. I love the old stone of the lodge, as well as all the trees. The photos show the view from our balcony:

David drove us seven hours on the way there, and then we detoured through his hometown on the way home, making that an eight hour return trip. He hadn’t been there since his parents moved to Goshen in 1995, and I had never seen the sweet little town. It was cuter and smaller than I imagined! I got to meet his very best childhood friend from pre-kindergarten, and he hadn’t seen her in 40 years. It was a special trip with lots of quality time.

Also setting the tone of Fall, we recently converted our gas fireplace to a wood burning stove insert. A half cord + of wood arrived the day before our trip, so David’s “relaxing” day ahead of the big trip involved a lot of work hauling wood to the shed while I did phone sessions. He also built a beautiful rack in the shed and arranged the wood in such an artistic way I almost don’t want to burn it. Almost! We’re actually very excited about this upgrade, especially with all the gas craziness going on right now. I’ve wanted a wood burning fireplace since we moved here, and everything synchronously aligned to make it happen with almost no planning on our part.

The rest of the front yard colors have shifted more towards Fall, as well:

Today we experience a universal pause with equal light and equal dark. The Sun moves into the balanced scales of Libra, kissing Mercury for just a moment, as he retrogrades back to Virgo. Pay attention to messages that make their way to you in this liminal time before the September 25 New Moon.

Blessed Be … and be the blessing. All is well.

New Moon in Libra ~ September 25, 2022

Given all the chatter around “September 24,” I’m posting this ahead of time so people can prepare for the energies. I keep telling clients that it’s VERY difficult right now to pin down exactly what will happen when. So many moving parts are in effect. It feels like life is screaming, “Category 5 Hurricane, Category 5 Hurricane.”

My personal sense is that yes, we are approaching a metaphorical hurricane, and things LOOK bad in some areas. I feel like we’ll wind up with more of a Category 2 Hurricane — significant change, some of it quite radical, but I feel like humanity is actually on the most positive timeline available right now. Some areas won’t even experience a hurricane, just much needed rain. Some people and some areas will have targeted tornadoes in addition to that Category 2 Hurricane. I speak in metaphors, but perhaps also literally.

Bottom line, the consistent message I keep receiving is that things could have been way worse than they are — almost incomprehensibly worse, except I’ve glimpsed those timelines. Collectively, we’re not on those timelines. Some disruption will occur, but seriously, folks, count your blessings!

Thriving is possible, and gratitude is powerful. Yes, things will change. In many cases, that’s a good thing. Change is necessary … but yes, change can be stressful. I posted the Astrological Preparedness Special this month for a reason. 🙂 If you position yourself well, you can benefit from disruption and even chaos. If you position yourself well and “nothing happens,” you’ve still positioned yourself well. You’ll find openings where others find closed doors. As the Hopi Prophecies say, “This can be a good time.”

My September 2022 Forecast shares:

September 25 New Moon in Libra 5:55 p.m. Eastern US time. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins at Sundown. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon indicates powerful shifts: (LIBRA 3°): THE DAWN OF A NEW DAY REVEALS EVERYTHING CHANGED. This degree also opposes Jupiter in Aries. Jupiter enlarges everything, so whatever revelations come, they’ll be big. Mercury and Venus conjunct in Virgo, bringing love and grace to the message. Saturn in Aquarius trines Mars in Gemini and squares Uranus in Taurus. The Saturn-Mars trine supports responsible action, but the Saturn-Uranus square demands bolder, revolutionary moves. This New Moon sets the stage for an October Surprise when that square goes within minutes of exact.

Dane Rudhyar elaborates on the Sabian Symbol with a “KEYNOTE: The ever-present possibility of beginning again on a new foundation of values.” Following so soon after Equinox, this New Moon hits the reset button even more so than usual. Jupiter tends to bring blessings, but the magnitude of change initiated by this New Moon could feel more like a “blessing in disguise.” Even longed for changes bring stress, and oftentimes the biggest, most necessary changes arise with a certain degree of inner turmoil before we accept and settle into the shifts.

This intensity gets amplified by the Mercury/Venus conjunction in Virgo trining Pluto in Capricorn. Deep, unconscious feelings express themselves in profound and uncontrollable ways. Long held secrets — told in great detail — change the way we understand our values and ourselves.

The September 25 New Moon in Libra’s Sabian Symbol anticipates more Scorpio themes of death and rebirth: THE DAWN OF A NEW DAY REVEALS EVERYTHING CHANGED. Moon cycles unfold over the course of a month. We might not recognize the full extent of change until the New Moon in Scorpio and Solar Eclipse on October 25. But change is coming.

Libra is ruled by Venus and symbolized by the balanced scales of Justice. Although the Sabian Symbol says, “everything changed,” the sign of Libra clues us to possible areas of extra radical change: relationships, partnerships, alliances, arts, literature, legal matters, and how we balance our lives. If you’ve struggled in any of these areas, then this New Moon bodes well for you.

If the prospect of a new reality scares you, I encourage you to lean into the positive side of Libra. Venus, the Goddess of Love, brings extra grace, harmony and beauty to her home sign. Often, we don’t realize we’re settling for something less until we see the upgrade. Instead of digging in your heels, allow yourself to engage the new, at least in your imagination. Surround yourself with as much beauty and balance as you can in the midst of changes beyond your control. Miracles await for those with eyes to see.

Quick Garden Update

The transition to Autumn continues. Between storms and critters, the last of the sunflowers toppled over or got devoured by hungry gold finches, squirrels and chipmunks. Colors still delight the eyes with red salvia, dianthus, and different types of cosmos and zinnias now taking center stage.

Purple and lacinato kale bring their own hues to the mix, and the rainbow chard are taking off in the silver planter.

Some of my late Summer planted lettuce is growing. I’m not sure what’s up with the spinach! I’ll try again when the temps consistently cool.

In any case, I thought I’d share some of today’s views of this surprisingly edible front yard.

Wishing everyone a beautiful day!

Approaching Go Time?

In my Precognitive Blues, Part 3 post, I shared the following:

A Recent Tarot Dream

On October 2, 2019, I had a potent dream. I stood in a pool at twilight chatting with my friend’s teenage son, Sol. (It seemed more symbolic with the name — Sol, aka “Sun” — rather than the person.) We could overhear my aunt and sister discussing the special mandala shaped patio and walkway under their feet. It featured a center circle at slightly lower elevation than the surrounding circles, which all tilted towards the center circle. My aunt told my sister, this setup would “ensure everyone and everything winds up in the right place at the right time in the event of an earthquake.”

At that point, something in me snapped, and I shouted at the dream itself, “What is the significance of ____?” I listed options, making sure to cover all bases except the one I suspected it might be. All of a sudden, the dream turned into a giant Tarot card! I won’t say which card or my question, because those details are private … and also because I want to make a more universal point about Tarot card dreams.

In any case, the dream went from a pool at twilight with Sol/Sun, overhearing a discussion about cracking foundations, safe mandala patios and sorting people and things in the event of an earthquake … then to my question/demand … and then to a giant cartoon Tarot card. I mentioned before that Tarot cards carry multiple meanings. In my dream, this card added and subtracted details to leave only one possible interpretation. Just in case I tried to miss the point — and yes, in the dream I tried to miss it — the card sparkled and flashed its modified details like a cornball cartoon. Subtle it was not.

An amused voice-over asked, “Any questions?”

Stunned, I found myself back in the swimming pool at twilight, talking to Sol and overhearing the exact same conversation about the mandala patio/walkway/foundation built to ensure everyone and everything winds up where they need to be in the event of an earthquake.

I had this powerful Tarot dream the day Pluto turned from retrograde to direct at 20 Capricorn — a significant position in my life for a variety of reasons. At the time of the dream, I didn’t realize Pluto’s shift, but the dream involved such obvious Plutonian themes that my jaw dropped when I looked up the transits. I wanted to discount the dream, but the astrology forced my left brain into compliance. I began composing a “hypothetical” email to my astrology mentor, Ann Kreilkamp and then laughed at myself. The flashing one-interpretation-only Tarot card gave my right brain no place to run. Pretending I didn’t get the message after seeing the astrology embarrassed me enough to stop composing the email.

You asked, Laura. You demanded an answer. We suggest you deal with it.

I’m still doing my Gemini Houdini negotiations with that dream whammy. For all we want to know, part of us may not really want to know what we already know. That dilemma arises in precognitive and “normal” people, if there’s actually a difference. At some point, we know what we know, whether that information comes in a vision, in a dream, by hypnotherapy, psychic reading, or through careful research and observation. Precognitive Blues, Part 1 and Part 2 explore gradations and complications of seeming foreknowledge. Clairaudience, Clairvoyance, Clairsentience, and Claircognizance explores ways that foreknowledge reveals itself.

Fast forward to September 11, 2022, the 21st anniversary of 9/11. I know I’m not the only one to notice this, because I keep hearing from friends and clients that they also felt a significant shift on September 8. For a friend and myself, the sense of this shift preceded the announcement of Queen Elizabeth’s death, but coincided with the supposed time of her death. My Full Moon in Pisces post noted:

September 10 Full Moon in Pisces, 5:59 a.m. Eastern US time. This Full Moon loosely conjuncts Neptune in Pisces, bringing extra empathy and intuition to an already highly charged day. The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon is “IN A GIGANTIC TENT, VILLAGERS WITNESS A SPECTACULAR PERFORMANCE.” Whether religious, political or some form of “bread and circuses,” Neptune’s presence adds massive Glamour to the leader of this spectacle. It will be easy to get carried away by sweeping emotions and inspiration. Something about this Full Moon dazzles the public in dramatic ways.

I almost wrote but deleted, “Will that spectacle be a huge state funeral?” With all the memorials, 10 days of mourning, etc., I can’t imagine a more “spectacular performance” than the lead up to Queen E2’s funeral, the event itself and King Charles III’s coronation ceremony.

I was not surprised by the death announcement since I had a dream on August 28 from which I awoke hearing young children singing, “London Bridge is falling down, falling down. London Bridge is falling down, my fair lady!” This dream followed an extreme kundalini experience while watching the movie “London Has Fallen.” As I continued to have what I call kundalini shakes while watching the film, I kept saying to David, “I hope this doesn’t mean something like this is going to happen. I haven’t had these shakes since right before 9/11.” After the Queen died, I learned that the code for her death is “London Bridge has fallen,” and the name for the protocol for transition of power to Charles is called “Operation London Bridge.”

But back to my October 2, 2019 dream about the special mandala floors to ensure everyone and everything winds up in the right place at the right time in the event of an earthquake. Over the years, I keep returning to this metaphor, and I’ve shared it with MANY clients. There seems to be some kind of reality overlay that will shift like a Rubik’s cube and click everyone and everything into place. Others and I have tracked massive synchronicities, dreams and external events, which seem to validate a separate timeline — whether we call that a New Earth, an alternate reality, or Ascension.

In the past few days, the movement of mandala floors showed up in a literal way in my 3D life. This coincided with a bizarre sighting of a hot air balloon, synchronicities around the Moon, as well as earthquakes (seen on a movie, but there’s also an uptick in 3D life). After a Friday session for a colleague, I shared details of a tight Celtic knot of dreams and synchronicities involving the shifting mandala floors and the hot air balloon. She told me that she has had numerous dreams and synchronicities involving hot air balloons as connected to “this time we’re in, go time.” Her most recent hot air balloon synchronicity occurred around the same time as I saw the hot air balloon on the previous day.

But wait! There’s more … this morning, I received an email from the person whose portal matches the card from my October 2, 2019 dream. Her email had the subject line, “Moving Mandalas!” We went back and forth on various synchronicities, only to discover that she used to crew hot air balloons and uses that terminology to describe different types of lift off. She also sent me an image of an owl in the center of a squaring the circle mandala.

I’m barely scratching the surface of dreams, synchronicities and validating 3D world events. I can’t say for certain what’s coming, but it feels like we have entered the next phase of a long, slow and careful process. Remember, my September 2022 Forecast says about the New Moon later this month:

September 25 New Moon in Libra 5:55 p.m. Eastern US time. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins at Sundown. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon indicates powerful shifts: (LIBRA 3°): THE DAWN OF A NEW DAY REVEALS EVERYTHING CHANGED. This degree also opposes Jupiter in Aries. Jupiter enlarges everything, so whatever revelations come, they’ll be big. Mercury and Venus conjunct in Virgo, bringing love and grace to the message. Saturn in Aquarius trines Mars in Gemini and squares Uranus in Taurus. The Saturn-Mars trine supports responsible action, but the Saturn-Uranus square demands bolder, revolutionary moves. This New Moon sets the stage for an October Surprise when that square goes within minutes of exact.

We shall see what unfolds, but the sky and Sabian Symbols seem to confirm big shifts below. I’ve noticed that the Moon cycle unfolds from one Full Moon to the next Full Moon, from New Moon to the next New Moon, so this doesn’t necessarily mean everything will look totally different on September 25. But it might!

I’ve tracked this time period for years due to dreams and synchronicities. I posted the Two of Cups portal on Fall Equinox 2020, and Fall Equinox 2019 was also filled with highly charged time slipping events. This 2022 time of equal day and equal night feels like a cosmic hinge point, especially with the powerful New Moon symbolism on the 25th.

For me, this feels extra powerful. On the September 22, 2022 Equinox, my progressed Scorpio Moon shifts into Sagittarius. My progressed Moon entered Scorpio on March 27, 2020 and remains in Pluto’s lair until Fall Equinox 2022. The New Moon on the 25th conjuncts my natal Pluto (death/rebirth/regeneration) and activates my natal Sun-Moon-Pluto Grand Trine, right after my progressed Scorpio Moon (ruled by Pluto) moves from the shadowy Underworld to a bright and bold Sagittarius adventure. How will this play out? No idea, but my progressed Moon has uncannily tracked with the worldwide COVID drama.

My October 2022 Forecast (not published yet as of this post) shares:

October 8 Pluto stations direct in Capricorn. After a deep dive since April 29, Lord of the Underworld prepares to resurface. All those hidden things you thought would never see the light of day? Pluto drags ’em up when he’s good and ready. Nobody pushes Pluto around. Resistance is futile. Try to suppress that force, and you’ll find death, destruction and devastation like you never imagined. Work with Pluto, and he brings healing, rebirth and regeneration beyond your wildest dreams. Ignore him at your peril. If you’ve ever wanted to clean house, do so now. You have support.

Does my October 2, 2019 Pluto stationing direct dream connect to this October 8 Pluto stationing direct? I don’t know. Maybe. It feels connected, but time will tell.

Today’s post won’t make sense to everyone, and that’s OK. I share this because in sessions I find that many intuitive people receive similar dream symbols, messages and synchronicities. Perhaps you are, too. If so, you’re not alone. For whatever it’s worth, I’ve been shown some great challenges for humanity, but also that vibration makes a huge difference of how the challenges will affect individuals. None of us will remain untouched, but it is possible to experience the rebirth and regeneration — sooner and more profoundly — after the metaphorical or literal death and destruction.

Above all, this is a time for prayer, discernment, gentle nurturing, patient waiting — and bold moves if and when we get the signal for “go time.” It’s approaching. I don’t know exactly when or how, but those special mandala floors are on the move!

Garden Update ~ Autumn is Coming, Plus a Toe Update

Just a few photos today, as much of the garden looks similar to photos from August 28th. A few things have changed.

I removed some of the spent sunflowers up front, while still leaving plenty for the goldfinches I so love.

Some lettuce has sprouted in the metal planter, so I cleared out some of the leaves and spent sunflowers that would shade them too much. I’m hoping some purple lettuce sprouts, too, so I can have rainbow chart and multi colored lettuces in there. I also planted spinach AGAIN, because none of my spinach seems to take. David and I saved some store bought lettuce bottoms, and I transplanted those today, too. They don’t always take well, but when they do, they jump start lettuce for fall greens.

Out back, the fall clematis bloomed its show of white:

You can also tell fall’s approach by the slight shift in collard and kale colors in the Garden Tower:

I get tired of gardening at this time of year, but I know some of the best harvests await! Frost kissed greens are so sweet, and we’re still getting loads of peppers, tomatoes and purple long beans. I still need to harvest my second batch of potatoes, as well as make pesto from bunches of basil. It’s all so yummy, but yes, once you harvest you need to do things with that produce!

For those wondering about my left pinky toe: I’m on the mend! Thank you for the kind wishes and Reiki. My foot is still blue in one spot, but not nearly so dark or broadly discolored. I can get around the house at almost normal pace provided I wear the pair of HOKA’s that happened to arrive the day I sprained and slightly fractured my toe. I couldn’t wear them for about five days due to swelling, but they have been a gift during this time I’d otherwise be hobbling much more.

The injury did slow me down, as I recognized it came from that repeat message days prior to the accident. I’m not adding so many sessions to already full days just because people keep begging me. I can only move so fast, and I need to stay balanced in order to help others. I feel like walking barefoot in the garden helps my toe, but that also happens in a very slow, deliberate fashion, so as not to strain my pinky. I do so much yoga that it’s second nature to have very grippy toes. That’s good for balance, but not good for a broken toe!

The Strength card portal in progress also continues. I very much hope to finish it this month! Wishing you a beautiful holiday weekend.

Full Moon in Pisces ~ September 10, 2022

My September 2022 Forecast shares:

September 10 Full Moon in Pisces, 5:59 a.m. Eastern US time. This Full Moon loosely conjuncts Neptune in Pisces, bringing extra empathy and intuition to an already highly charged day. The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon is “IN A GIGANTIC TENT, VILLAGERS WITNESS A SPECTACULAR PERFORMANCE.” Whether religious, political or some form of “bread and circuses,” Neptune’s presence adds massive Glamour to the leader of this spectacle. It will be easy to get carried away by sweeping emotions and inspiration. Something about this Full Moon dazzles the public in dramatic ways.

This Full Moon occurs just hours after Mercury stations retrograde in Libra. My Forecast notes:

September 9 Mercury stations retrograde in Libra. Mercury will remain retrograde until October 2, moving through Libra and back into Virgo. This particular Mercury Rx asks us to re-evaluate legal matters, areas of imbalance, injustice, and re-analyze the details. Complex situations call for more than a cursory look, and we may find that things are not as they appeared. As with any Mercury Rx, dot your i’s and cross your t’s. Closely examine or postpone binding contracts. Remember, time moves in cycles. Previous Mercury Rx periods could return as relevant: January 14-February 3, 2022; May 10-June 3, 2022; even as far back as October 14-November 3, 2020.

The combination of Mercury stationing retrograde and a Full Moon in Pisces conjunct ruler Neptune increases the odds of confusion and delusion. Alternatively, it could shine Divine Light on prior times of confusion or delusion. Full Moon cycles play out over the next month, and Mercury remains retrograde for much of this time.

Mercury Rx gets a bad rap, but these periods do facilitate anything that begins with re-. Reflection, revision, re-examination, review, redo. Real revelations will occur during this time period, but their relevance might not seem obvious until Mercury goes direct on October 2 or until the next Full Moon in Aries on October 9. If some grand spectacle appears, take it with a grain of salt and Sun-in-Virgo skepticism. It’s OK to question reality! Especially the miasma that passes for “truth” and “facts” in a brainwashed, zombified, and addicted world.

Tune into the higher octave of Pisces: unconditional compassion, faith, beauty, healing, and a higher perspective far beyond the realm of ego. This is a great time to work on creative projects, which will benefit from ongoing revision and soaring inspiration. Music and theater receive extra oomph from that “spectacular performance” energy. It’s also a good time to explore principles of Reiki, Aikido, Lao-Tzu, Sun Tzu, and Wu Wei.

Pay special attention to any dreams you have during this time. Pisces and Neptune can trigger psychic downloads. Watch for symbolism in waking life, as well.

September 2022 Specials

SEPTEMBER 2022 SPECIALS

As always, I tailor these to current energies, questions and requests. I’m getting a LOT of preparedness questions, so I’m including the Astro Preparedness Special again. If you prefer to use that time for more 3D reality explorations, we can do that, too. 🙂 The second special is one of my favorites to offer!

Astro Preparedness Special

This special combinies astrology and preparedness. The rest of 2022 brings intense, rare and once in a lifetime collective transits. These arise as chaos kicks and screams around the world. Such times can feel scary, but they also offer tremendous opportunities.

This 40-minute special looks at your natal chart and transits, as well as your current location and situation in order to help you empower yourself in the most joyful and beneficial ways. I will tailor these sessions to the individual client: some people will be more precisely impacted by coming events than others. We can focus more on the astrology, or draw more from my background in following dreams and intuitive guidance, or implementing permaculture and organic gardening. In any case, this session aims to launch breakthroughs even in the midst of systemic 3D world breakdowns. $133 if prepaid on or before 9/30/22. Please contact me to sign up.

Dreamweaver Special

This half-hour offering dives deep into Dreamtime. We can use our time together to analyze a specific dream or dreams, look at overall dream themes, or explore how to glean even more from your dreams. We can discuss recommended tools, techniques and/or resources, and I offer support for people intrigued yet troubled by precognitive dreams or nightmares. Basically, I tailor the session to you and your needs, but in some way, shape or form we look at dreams. $111 if prepaid on or before 9/30/2022. Please contact me to sign up.
