Virgo moon opposes Neptune in the week hours on Friday.Moon also conjuncts Mars in Virgo later in the morning.
Virgo is The Hermit in the Tarot and Neptune is Pisces is the Moon
The moon also conjuncts Jupiter in the latter afternoon. It is a good day to organize, clean up your act.
Moon trines Pluto later that day as well. A good body enrichment, soul enriching aspect.
A good day to focus on your big dreams and long-term career, high noon position.
This brings a nice body/spirit/mental/emotional balance. Can be used specifically for some practical dreaming.
Before you go to bed at night. Incubate a dream.
Before you go to bed do a body scan. With your imagination visit the inside of your body which is your spiritual vehicle. You can envision this as having a flashlight lighting up the darkness inside your body. Sense if there is a heat, energy or knot anywhere in your system. This can be muscular, skeletal, in a major organ, emotional or spiritual.
Try this out and see what happens. It can be simply be a felt sense.
And then ask to scan your body in your dream state.
Incubate a LUCID DREAM, this is where you are awake and conscious that you are dreaming.
When you wake up don’t go into your head. Stay in your body sensing. Scan your body for signs of heat, cold, blocks, knots and put your hands on those places. You can send Universal healing energy to any block in your body. That is what Reiki is and I don’t believe you need to be certified necessarily to do this. It is a natural thing and simply requires your mind is able to tune into Higher consciousness energies.
Let me know how you do.
October 9 would have been John Lennon’s 75th birthday. He was one of my childhood heroes. I wish he would have been here to comment on the world.
Hi well I am back in Toronto. Feeling a little bit like I am in two places at once. After September’s Super Total Blood Moon and Virgo Solar eclipses October is rich and earthy in its own way. RICHES is really the keyword. Diplomacy, Romance, love and sex, dreams, beauty, creativity and communications are very much featured for all signs. Earth signs take center stage. Those Cardinal T-squares are reignited.
Mercury Turns Direct October 9 as Venus leaves her shadow period of Retrogadation July 25- September 6.
From the 8th onwards as Venus enters Virgo again, the Planet of Relationships and Mercury the Messenger are in Mutual Reception,hosting each other in each other’s sign. This facilitates all types of communications enabling us to precisely say what you mean and clarify all the details. No second guessing or taking things for granted.
There are three MAJOR and powerful EARTH TRINES this month, three of which involve PLUTO, Lord of RICHES.
Virgo and Capricorn are featured largely this month Taurus benefits too.
JUPITER in Virgo trines Pluto on the 11th. This positive aspect perfects again in March with Jupiter Retrograde and in June with Pluto Retrograde of 2016. October 11 is the time to plant BIG SEEDS BIG INTENTIONS which will be re-rooted or rerouted later. This is a great transit to improve one’s discipline, health routine, exercise, budget and most especially by attending to what enriched the soul on a daily level. Jupiter and Pluto are great for increased influence and expansion in business.
VENUSandMARSare in extremely ROMANTIC POSITIVE DREAMY OUT OF THIS WORLD DANCE

October 6 INTENSE CARDINAL SQUARE, Sun square Pluto
This is a twice a yearly aspect. Igniting the difference between those in power and those trying to find balance their lives. The refugee crisis in Europe will ignite with more power battles.
Retrograde Mercury sextile Saturn in Sagittarius
MARSin VIRGO OPPOSITE NEPTUNE in Pisces *****The Reality Check versus the Dream aspect.
Build a dream or vision board. Mars in Virgo is aggressively going over every detail, very critically and aggressively. If your dream isn’t on budget, Forget it. Its back to the drawing board. Prepared to be called on the rug and criticized. If denial, getting stoned, avoidance, procrastination or blaming others is your only answer to the jury’s questions you are in deep shit trouble.Virgo’s may fall in love and surrender!
October 8 VENUS enters VIRGO until November 8
KEYWORDS: LOVE gets down to earth and critical. Working overtime for Love.Is this a song?
Questions: Do you love your job? Shopping spree in the bargain basement. Austerity love.
Oct. 9 MERCURY GOES DIRECT FINALLY! Yes but proceed with caution.
Mercury in LIBRA has made us drag the past out into the light about our relationships hasn’t it? We have been re-evaluating how we speak and communicate and where we need to rebalance our budgets, and everything in our lives.
It will take till October 24 for Mercury to bypass its Retrograde degree.

A very bewitching Pagan NEW YEAR. A great day to scry with water. Visions and insights galore will appear.Be near water if you can. In ancient days the dead were put into boats and floated down rivers to the places of eternal rest. We are born from water and this completes that cycle. A good day for water cleanses and releasing with the element of water. A good day to cry out all the pain and sadness to be washed clean.

Feeling unbounded? Lost? Dazed and confused? Highly creative? At one with the cosmos?
The Moon is in Pisces my dears so all of the above applies. Pisces also signifies religious or spiritual fanatics.
Pisces is, All is One. No boundaries or separation.
Inspirational Card of the Day
THE DEVIL TUMP #15
I remember giving a Tarot workshop years ago at the Grail Springs Spa and I had not given my usual preview of all the major Tarot Trumps as I usually do, to try this method out. I asked each participant to choose a card. One woman got the Devil and freaked out. She was a pretty conservative Church believer and receiving the Devil made her think she was going straight to Hell.
On the contrary THE DEVIL is merely our own shadow. To say THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT is a total cop-out, to blame our actions onto some thing other than ourselves.
The Devil got his bad reputation because he was created that way by the Catholic Church which was intent on squashing pagan Goddess worshipping, nature lovers. They turned the ancient God PAN, of the horns and cloven hoofs associated with the sign of Capricorn into a very bad thing. Pan is horny all right. But that is a natural thing. The Catholic church has always tried to control sexuality.
The DEVIL symbolizes FEAR ITSELF.
Follower of Hieronymous Bosch, The Harrowing of Hell 14½ x 21 in
The Devil you project onto whatever scary group you fear. To homophobes this is gays. To creationists it’s atheists. To Muslims its Jews, To Jews its Muslims. To Republicans, its demoncrats. OMG Freudian Slip.. Demoncrats TM. I know the Tea Party will love that.
Whatever we DEMONIZE has power over us. There is no hell except that which we self-create. That I am sure of.
The Devil, if approached with respect with our own vulnerabilities and weaknesses allows us to know ourselves, and where we have to build strengths.
The pairing card to the Devil #15 is the Lovers #6 in the Tarot. Both reduce to 6. The symbol at the Center of the Tree of Life. The number of the Merkaba or 6 pointed Star.
Love your fears. Take back your projections. What are you so afraid of? Call in your guardian Angels to help protect you. Breathe.
Is the Devil you know better than the one you don’t?
You cannot fight darkness directly. You cannot fight your enemy because your enemy is yourself. It is like cancer. And so it goes round and round and then ” the Devil” really does have us in his grip.
You can only send love to your enemy and love yourself. I am not advocating SYMPATHY for the DEVIL.
The Devil becomes your angel, your DAEMON, a good spirit, once you accept it and go through it.
In Plato’s Symposium the priestess Diotima teaches Socrates that “everything daemonic is between divine and mortal” – from Wikipedia
Beautiful 36-year-old actress of the Notebook and Mean Girls fame, Rachel McAdams, received her own Canada Walk of Fame Star October 18 in Toronto.
INSPIRATIONAL CARD OF THE DAY
A quick look at Rachel’s chart.
The Canadian Star lives a quiet life in Toronto when she isn’t making movies.
The Sizzling Triple Scorpio gal with a Scorpio Ascendant –
hence her magnificent sexyness. She likes to be in control, she is obsessive, deep, secretive, mysterious.
Rachel has VENUS RETROGRADE in Scorpio
an unusual Karmic aspect, love is different for Rachel. She has come into this life to finish off many karmic relationships with men in her life. They may not need to end up as her partners. An intensely private person, she needs to be in control of her emotional life as she feels everything extremely deeply. She is self motivated and everything must be on her terms.
URANUS CONJUNCT THE SUN
This girl is uniquely different and fresh, unlike no other. This aspect making her a very independent woman who always marches to her own drummer- Rachel is always true to herself and a natural rule breaker. She is unimpressed with superficial things. Money doesn’t matter to her as much as real soul connection. She may be very difficult to work with because of her stubborn rebellious nature.
MOON is in GEMINI
Our Rachel has a double side. All Gemini’s are quite immature on some level, they don’t want to grow up and find it hard to commit. She is a wonderful communicator, she is curious and likes to talk. Rachel may not settle down until she is quite a bit older. She loves information and reading. She is charming intelligent and flirtatious.
Moon in the 8th house give the light Airy Moon a deep intense obsessiveness. She thinks her feelings, intellectualizes them and ruminates over them. It may drive her quite to distraction, being in her head so much. She may be devoted to psychology, mysticism, the occult, but extremely private about it. She is constantly questioning everything like a child of three who always asks why.
Moon is opposite to her triple threat of MARS MERCURY and NEPTUNE in conjunction in Sagittarius
Miss McAdams is a lover of travel, philosophy, languages, history, animals- especially horses, learning, exotic foreign locations, honesty, nature, laughter and is casual and easy to get along with. This aspect also indicates an interest in politics and the law. She like Sagittarius type men.
NEPTUNE Rules film so she is a natural actress. She is very spiritual, psychic and sensitive and needs to feel she is protected, as she needs to retreat into her self. She is extremely empathic and imaginative. She would also make a great writer or producer of films.
JUPITER IN LEO on her MID HEAVEN
She is most definitely a Star and can act every inch the star. She has glamour in spades. She is very open hearted and generous to those she loves.
Saturn in Virgo in the 11th house
She is a meticulous perfectionist. She is an extremely hard worker, has a great memory. May be OCD. She is very disciplined in everything she does. Diet and health may be underlying issues in her life. She is a team player and a great organizer. She wants to help clean up the world .Environmental and health issues concerns her.
PLUTO In Libra in the 12th house
this is a very spiritual aspect. Her soul would love to be a nun, cloistered, away from the harsh world, a hermit. She has a very deep soul, intense powerful, transformative emotions. She needs a great role to pour all of that depth into. She needs relationships but she can tend to undermine them as well.
Lilith is Leo square Chiron in Taurus and Venus in Scorpio
Rachel feels unconsciously rejected for being who she is, a powerful sexual, independent woman. She needs to heal this with in herself in order for love to come in to her life.
North Node in Virgo in the 11th
she is on a quest of self perfection and work devoting herself to be of service to others. She would be great fundraising for environmental concerns.
SOUTH NODE IN PISCES IN THE 5th
This aspect indicates that Rachel came into this lifetime already having been a very spiritual person, humble. I see many visions and past lives of hers. Most likely an apostle of follower of Christ, She could have been a nun, a healer. Also someone who was a creative person, an actress, someone who was already famous on the stage. Also a lifetime in France as a prostitute and alcoholic, a destitute washed up person who wanted to be famous and never made it.
Rachel came in already knowing unconsciously all of these lives. We always tend to fall back on what we know.
SATURN crossing Rachel’s Sun now she is maturing and will garner serious cred for recent films.
She is in a great career year with her Jupiter Return and Jupiter in her 10th house of career.
There should be a serious marriage or committed relationship in her life coming within the next year and a half to two years. THE ONE she’s been waiting for. She holding out for the one who accepts her as she is.
Virgo SUN opposes NEPTUNE AUG 29 SOL + SOUL align. Merging soul and spirit in the LIGHT.
Shining a light onto your dreams, bring them to life.
Discover your inner depths, the source of your light within. Project your light out and see it mirrored back.
“The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.”- RUMI
It’s like the HERMIT in the Tarot
The Hermit is the sign of VIRGO
As above, so below.” As without, so within.”
See the dream within the dream world of spirit, that is all LIGHT.
Earthy Virgo practical Sun of the harvest and dreamy transpersonal planet Neptune of the soul harvest.
All oppositions require both sides to have their say. No matter how humble your dreams bring them out into the Light where they can grow.
Neptune is the planet of Spiritual essence, ONENESS, compassion, forgiveness. It is where we all come from, the great Mystery and to which we all return again and again.
Do you believe in past lives?
Sun is the “real” physical source of LIGHT and Neptune is the Spiritual Light in the darkness.
Jesus, Buddha, all great spiritual teachings are about the LIGHT within which is ALL love.
Neptune is all things dreamy, misty, foggy, imagination, endings, creative,art, music, mercy, delusional, addictions, fears, false prophets, nightmares. Keeping anything in the shadows of darkness makes them more powerful, shameful, feared.
“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” – Rumi
Neptune and its sign Pisces, also rules mental asylums and institutions, the 12th house, the Unconscious, suicide, self-undoing, karma, ashrams, viruses, hidden enemies, drowning, endings, Hollywood, glamour, oil.
The Toronto International Film Festival starts next week, bringing Hollywood stars- the sun is a star, and the glamour into the spotlight.
Neptune is boundless, intangible, FAITH. BLISS.
SUN NEPTUNE BRINGS DREAMS ILLUSIONS DELUSIONS ADDICTIONS INSPIRATION, ONENESS BLISS
A great day to meditate, One Source is connected to another SOURCE.
WARNING you will be feeling foggy, trippy, hung over, or spaced out.Beware not to fall in love with a stranger. Don’t buy the too good to be true deal or the “psychic” /fortune teller who tells you they will cure all your ills, change your luck, remove curses for exorbitant fees,or bring lovers back as if they were all puppets.
Where your love out in the sunshine. Bring your soul to light.
Also forgive those who have trespassed against you.
The message I channelled yesterday was.
“Any religious ideology which is based on separating anything from anything else or speaks of being better than any “others” and their beliefs has absolutely nothing to do with real spirituality. Those types of “religious” teachings come entirely from the ego and are therefore false” True spirituality is always inclusive LOVE and never separates anything from anything else. ALL is ONE.
