Cosmic Consciousness Weekly October 5 - 11, 2015
All times given are EDT
Monday the 5th
This week has some large spans of time where the Moon is Void of Course (VOC)… so what is that? VOC patterns happen somewhat often as the Moon finishes with one sign and prepares to enter to the energy of the next. Sometimes it can be minutes and other times it can extend longer than 24 hours, like it does this week.
When we have VOC, there is a feeling of drifting and a challenge to lock things down. Its an optimal time for meditation, reflection and tapping into receiving downloads from your Source. When it happens during work days (like today) we can experience a slower pace and we may find that our agendas are not manifesting as we might like.
The Cancer Moon is VOC today from 7:05 AM until tomorrow morning at 4:32 AM EDT. Cancer is all about experiencing the power of our emotions… they are tickets to take us places.
Where will your inner journey take you today?
What nurtures you? Where
do you protect yourself from others by shutting down?
How can you allow the receptive every of the Divine Feminine to sooth your Soul?
Tuesday the 6th
This is one of those Big Energy days!
We wake up with a fiery Moon in Leo trining Saturn and sexting Mercury; quite a different energy than yesterday! We are ready to move and find creative solutions. But we can run into resistance… as the bigger news is a stepping stone (square) between the Sun in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn that we will feel throughout the day.
The Pluto/Sun square tends to bring up stuff so we can transform it and many people can be reactionary today. As we love to say… stay mindful and don’t be one of them! The resistance can be remedied by choosing to love what we think are the dark/ugly parts. If you try to control a situation, well lets just say “good luck with that!” Remain neutral and see what is revealed.
If something pushes your anger button, love the part of you that is angry.
Mercury sextile Saturn at 6:58 PM, providing resources for clarity about making a decision. Mercury is retrograde and goes direct this Friday and will reconnect with Saturn next Tuesday. This is an opportune time to review what your working on and gain a new perspective. By next Tuesday the choice will be clear.
The day winds up with a bridge between Mars in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces at 10:53 PM, another one we could have felt all throughout the day. This connects the physical body and how we are motivated to take actions to the limitless field of dreams and spirituality. Our bodies may feel lethargic and we could find motivation hampered. It is a time for realigning with our deepest inner being and could bring fantastic downloads in our dream world. get ready to record your dreams.
Wednesday the 7th
We get some recovery time today, after the intensity of yesterday. The Leo Moon sextiles the Sun early… time to let your heart shine. How can you celebrate with your inner child? A special morning treat or a generous hug with a loved one can be just the ticket.
The Leo Moon forms a fire trine with Uranus at 5:11 PM and you can bet that some surprising playfulness will be afoot. This is a day to lighten up, play and don’t take life so seriously!
The Moon is VOC ( see Monday’s reference) from 5:11 PM until tomorrow at 3:51 PM EDT. All the more reason to take it easy.
Thursday the 8th
The day starts with a VOC Moon in Leo ( lasts until 3:51 PM) what a great time to write a list of all we are grateful for; let generosity and appreciation set the tone.
The Moon and Venus enter Virgo later today; a shift to earthy, focused energy. traditionally, Virgo is all about the details and practical, realistic applications. In this new paradigm, Virgo adds a new quality of “wholing” ourselves back together. It’s all about service and healing with choosing accuracy over speed.
Venus, now out of her retrograde shadow, will be in Virgo until November 8th. Our hearts will get a boost from a job well done, spending more time in nature and being of service to others. Ask how you can refine an approach or a project. Also, its a great time to tend to reforming some health habits… just don’t go self-critical, keep it loving.
Friday the 9th
Here we are at Mercury Direct! So much hype about Mercury retrograde and to think it happens 3 to 4 times a year and lasts 8 weeks each time (when you include the shadow period). We certainly can’t shut down important decisions that often! It’s really a recalibration, regrouping time and Mercury will not leave the shadow until October 24th. So look to see what you have revisited and reviewed and what new forms of clarity are starting to emerge.
Mercury has just hooked up with the North Node at a very powerful point, indicating that we will be moving forward towards our lives calling with greater velocity and metal clarity.
At 3:42PM, Mercury and Venus form a harmonious aspect that refreshes our heart/mind connection. It’s been an intense time inside this Eclipse Wormhole and we could all use some warm hearted thinking.
The Virgo Moon trines Pluto in Capricorn at 6:12 PM and drifts off to a very long VOC that lasts until Sunday at 4:46 Am. This earthy trine is fantastic for slowing down and taking some time to tune into your inner world and allow some transformation to take place.
How do you speak to yourself when you are trying to get something right? How can you take greater care to “author” your life story from a place that is inspired by a loving inner being? Where do you need to do a rewrite? Take some time over this weekend to see what comes up if you ask yourself these questions.
Saturday the 10th
The Virgo Moon is VOC for the entire day, accenting the need to handle only what is infant of us and give up trying to forge ahead. Virgo is excellent at handling mundane, daily tasks ad as long as we don’t go into a perfectionistic overtone, somethings will get done.
Venus is now at 1 degree Virgo and she forms a stepping stone (square) to Saturn in Sagittarius late tonight. Traditionally, this speaks to a stressful scenario in relationships. All squares are opportunities for growth and if we consciously choose to own our own patterns (without blame and shame) and love ourselves enough to face our fears… great new beginnings can start from here. Be very honest with yourself without being brutal!
Sunday the 11th
The Libra Moon sets us on a pleasant path with harmonious aspects to Mercury, Saturn and Venus this morning. Conversations reestablish a new balance and being kind goes along way.
This morning helps us to integrate all the shifts of this past week, so take time to find inner peace and happy connections.
The Sun’s connection to Chiron today suggest some great healing is possible. We are at the end of a lunar cycle, suggesting a letting go is appropriate and will open doors to new levels of well being.
Jupiter and Pluto form a powerful, exact earth trine to day at 7:52 PM … bringing to a peak a manifestation energy that is bound to bring good fortune of some kind.
This is the first of three times these two powerful planets will join in this manner during 2015,while Jupiter is in Virgo. This might be a strong indication of what we can restructure and rebuild in our lives, especially in the areas of health, work and writing our life script. Habits, behavior patterns and connections begun or ended at this time will most likely have profound and lasting influences. This is big cycle, fortunate energy. What will we do with it? Anything that involves better care of our environment (internal and external) will be supported.
