Have you been yearning for a moment of relief, followed by a transit of release? Then it’s time to loosen those muscles and get excited because the stars have some exciting energy to bring your way this week!
And that’s all starting with the moment we’ve all been waiting for – Mercury is finally moving direct again in the sign of Libra on October 18th! All of that miscommunication, frustration, and confusion associated with Mercury retrograde is finally over, leaving you the energy and focus you need to get started on new projects!
On that same day, Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, is moving direct in the sign of Aquarius, meaning that blessings and abundance are better able to flow towards you. Keep your heart and your mind open to all of the opportunities that will be surrounding all of us now, and trust that the Universe will bring you exactly what you want and need.
On October 20th, there’s a Full Moon in the sign of fiery, determined Aries. And while Full Moons are known for heavy emotions, that Aries spark brings just the right amount of passion and motivation to release any negativity, emotions, or habits from the last lunar cycle that is no longer serving you.
Finally, on October 23rd, the Sun is moving into Scorpio, marking the beginning of a new astrological season! Scorpio is sultry, intense, mysterious, and deeply connected to the mystical areas of life – and this energy will flavor everything we experience this month. It’s time to get in touch with metaphysical activities like astrology, Tarot readings, and crystal healing.
October 11 – October 17 is a Week to Observe and Go with the Flow
There are quite a few big transits and astrological changes this week, and while they’re positive, it may feel a bit disorienting. That’s why it’s a good time to sit back and observe the shifting energies while maintaining your faith in the Universe, the stars, and their plans.
Don’t forget about your Full Moon ritual to release what no longer serves you. Make a list of every grudge, feeling, negative thought, or habit that you no longer need going into the next lunar cycle.
Close your eyes, breathe deeply, and allow these things to leave your spirit with every exhale.
