This week the ground stays in its current condition and place, mostly, while your mind and heart field information and move things around. Insight, inspiration mingle with optimism, leading to breakthroughs and monumental decisions of the heart by the weekend.
Now that air traffic controller Mercury is looking forward again, communication and travel issues are clearing and easing up, especially after Mercury begins noticeably moving midweek. We’re working with water, and how, much like last July and August (which might turn out to be relevant time frames). Emotions and mysteries are swirling and surfacing, some of which you’ve been anticipating or needing.
Watch for important information wafting your way. The channel is open to non-rational, non-worldly guidance, thanks to a link between Mercury and Neptune, overseer of transcendence, magic and higher love. Ask for insight, clues, answers and miracles; there’s a greater than usual probability for any of those materializing. Let yourself be led and you will end up in the right place at the right time.
Of course, this kind of flow is also susceptible to a lot of hooey. Exercise discernment. Ask for reality checks. Give your inner ears and voice more credence than the outer ones. If something particularly delusional or deceptive surfaces, look for the possibility that it will lead to soothing, healing, dispersal or resolution.
Coinciding with this info-fest is a surge of optimism and cheer and possibilities, along with a just plain surge in emotional energy. Jupiter is just beginning a four-month retrograde, while Neptune is turning direct, and the push-pull from their changes in direction is pushing a lot of metaphoric water around, dramatically. It’s teeming with wish fulfillment. Choose wisely. You could get something very close to what you want, and it will have staying power. (Cautionary tales of worst-case scenarios: “The Chaser” by John Collier and “The Monkey’s Paw” by W.W. Jacobs.)
Back on shore, the week’s big action is Venus’ apache dance with the cosmic change agents Uranus and Pluto. The upheaval and refocusing of the past few weeks is now bearing down on relationships, agreements, desires, financial arrangements and value systems. What’s your bottom line? What do you truly value? That measuring stick will be tested, and how, as we run all the change impulses by our heart.
The building tension finds release on Thursday, when Venus’ clash with Uranus unleashes lightning bolts (and strikes) that disintegrate locks, barriers and limitations. On Friday, as she merges with the primal instincts of Pluto, we stand in the rubble (or daylight) and a cry roars up from our very cells: I WANT.
If that sounds intense and dramatic, well, just watch. We’re applying a scalpel to all manner of situations and concepts, most especially our wish list. We’re streamlining priorities even more and getting serious to a new extreme.
Simplifying and focusing is an imperative, which is why so many pack rats have been feeling the uncharacteristic drive to throw things out like mad. If something’s broken, forget repairs; toss it out. Relationships are going off life support. What holds appeal now is spartan, simple and likely to appreciate.
Well, not entirely. There’s the not-so-little matter of that screaming I WANT. If we really, truly, deeply, madly want something, we are going for it, no holds barred, and anything else will simply drop. Consequences be damned, too — many an apple will be so tempting that we chomp down on it, and will be worth the repercussions as well.
The theme of desires and satiation continues with the Taurus Full Moon that ends the week, on Sunday. Unlike the last two lunations, it’s not an eclipse (as thousands cheer), which we won’t see again till next spring (ditto). It’s casting a light on earthly appetites and experience. How satisfying is yours? A full discussion is in my mooncast, which will be posted by Saturday.
Also look at my outlook for November.
