The month of October is a chaotic one astrologically. Much of this year has been, but October is the month of many things. Already a time of heightened senses as the viel to the spirit world thins, and the Autumn season sheds it's skin like the leaves of change.
So we had the largest moon of the year on August 31st, It was a super moon in the sign of Pisces. I was in a little town called Alcudia in Mallorca, Spain. The view of the moon was spectacular, vibrant and shinning vividly in the clear night skies.
In astrology, aspects refer to the angles formed between two or more celestial bodies within a birth chart. These aspects provide information about the relationships, energies, and interactions between different planets, points, and angles in a person's chart.
August is an odd month astrologically, for many reasons, but to start it all off we have a Super Moon in Aquarius. Actually we have two full moons this August which is unusual. The second full moon will be in Pisces at the end of the month, and is also a super moon.
Today is the feast day of Saint Mary Magdalene, so I was inspired to write something on feminine energy. Venus is also going retrograde today, with the nodes of fate changing like clock work, so it's a big day energetically. Spikey energy like the thorn of a rose, vibrant and red as the lips of Lilith. I am feeling the healing energy of this retrograde.
Cosmic blessings for the New moon in Cancer today. We have been blessed with a chance to manifest the new again. As Venus is about to retrograde unusually for four months, we are currently residing in what is called the shadow of the retrograde, a period of time before the retrograde itself. Usually it lasts a week or so depending on the retrograde.
Mars enters Virgo today, and I'm not enjoying the funky atmosphere. I guess I could sum it up as Monday blues because you're back at the office, except I don't work in an office. I imagine this is how they must feel every Monday, like the life has been sucked out of them. Or maybe I'm just being a bit pessimistic. I am an Aquarius after all and I'm still feeling that pull of Plutonian energy, even if it is retrograding in Capricorn, it's still heavy and grinding. Intense.
It's July 1st and today there's a Cazimi in Cancer, while there's a dance between the planets Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn. This portal of good luck is an important one. A Cazimi is where a planet's orbit is within 1 degree of the Sun. When this happens the planet, in this case Mercury, is in an enchanted state. As Mercury rules the mind, this Cazimi shines light on our mind.
