SOLAR FLARE ALERT for Oct 20 and next few days! Become a follower of Spaceweather.com to keep track of these catalyzing events as they occur. Sunspots and solar flares don’t just affect humanity’s technological and energy systems, they profoundly influence our nervous system, which can lead to things like panic attacks, heart palpitations, anxiety, uneasiness. That’s because they are actually triggering upgrades in our own spirit/mind/body grids. Truly. Our Sun is like a giant transmitting station of greater cosmic energies entering our Planetary Field assisting us in our evolution. Interesting way to view solar flares, eh?
I have made up a new word, something I have loved to do since childhood. Lovegistics. Here’s a potential definition: organizing and ordering life more fully around love, creativity, living life as the art form it was intended to be. Let’s reorganize our world around love and cooperation, not fear and competition. Lovegistics.
Given that this week’s Partial Solar Eclipse on the New Moon (carrying over into next week) is aligned with both Venus ~ art/love ~ and Pallas Athene ~ strategy/design ~ I think it’s a good concept. Truly astounding creative breakthroughs in the design and innovation of your life plan or creative endeavor can take hold in the coming four weeks.
Also, I will be doing a short version of the Signposts for the week of Oct 27-November 2 below, due to travel plans during this time.
Lastly, I would also like to share this link for my friend Mike Cavorac’s short film “Reclaiming the Night: Preserving the Night Skies of Jackson Hole Wyoming”(http://www.freeroamingphotography.com/video-library/). I am honored that Mike used my poem “Antelope Dreaming” to help educate the public about this important issue.

As Mercury retrograde conjuncts the North Node of your evolving future, it’s time to move on something. Mercury rules logistics. Today is a great day to set your new dreams in motion with things like booking a plane ticket for a coming trip, renewing your passport, make a necessary purchase, trusting you will manifest the resources to upgrade your communication systems/business infrastructure. Mercury also rules movement. Movement is required to help you move forward. Don’t sit still today. MOVE. Move on, move forward. Just move it! Get the picture? Only you can free yourself from your own inertia. And this is fine: Venus in Libra ~ a most beauty-filled and peace-loving alignment ~ is in an exciting sextile to Mars in Sagittarius ~ enthusiastic coaching. People are kind and supportive to each other today. You may get a second wind late at night if you stay up as the efficient Virgo Moon makes a late late night square to energetic Mars in Sagittarius.
Tue Oct 21
Not much to report today. It’s just an interim day linking yesterday’s gifts to tomorrow’s continuing positivity. But don’t languish too much. Keep moving forward and you pursue your lovegistics.
Wed Oct 22
A simply fabulous rare trine of Jupiter to the South Node and sextile to North Node brings positive support to you today. The phrase “give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way”, a lovely Native American truth, is something to consciously affirm today. This is also the last day of our last Lunar cycle. It’s called the Balsamic Moon, and it is a good time to take some down time to reflect and rest. Yet the productive organized Virgo Moon isn’t oriented that way. And today this hard-working Virgo Moon also conjuncts the North Node ~ taking steps forward ~ and then Mercury. What’s the next detail you need to attend to to keep that forward momentum going?
Thu Oct 23
It’s the New Moon! This particular monthly conjunction of our Sun ~ your outer life ~ and Moon ~ your inner landscape ~ aligns exactly with Venus, our planetary ruler of love, artistic yearnings, ethics, aligning our financial life with our core values, and our heart chakra. This is a very influential portal of Love, influencing every soul on Earth, planting seeds of compassion and creativity for the coming four weeks. Of course, we always have a choice as to how we will receive and experience this cosmic gift. In addition, the asteroid of Pallas Athene is also conjunct this new Moon. She is ruler of creative intelligence and strategy. Alliances formed in the coming weeks, based upon common values, will greatly influence our current cultural shifts and trends. Time to team up with your creative compatriots.
Fri Oct 24
The extremely lovely energies of yesterday’s New Moon continue today. There may be a momentary terse discussion around family/relationship responsibilities first thing this morning (like last minute change of who will be picking up the kids and where) as the Libra Moon makes a square to Juno in Cancer.
Sat Oct 25
Mercury, our planetary ruler of communications, technology, the internet, travel, thinking, and ideas returns to direct motion from a three week time-out/retrograde/internal reflection period. Since Mercury transited both Libra ~ relationship~ and Virgo ~ health concerns ~ this particular cycle had a lot to do with creating more open communications in all our key relationships, and continues to bring about a re-evaluation of global health practices given the current Ebola crisis. This forward shift can feel like a fresh breeze entering your life. Chances are if things broke, common in a Mercury retrograde cycle, they are now repaired, and you are ready to charge forward with your upgrades.
In addition, babies born today and tomorrow will be physically beautiful and artistic loving leaders. That’s because the two planetary Lights of Sun and Venus make an exact conjunction creating a laser of cosmic love and artistic genius.There’s more! Venus also aligns with Pallas Athene ~ the asteroid associated with creative intelligence/strategy. Let lovegistics continue to motivate you to launch exciting long-dreamed of desires. The more serious Moon/Saturn conjunction encourages you to get real and really focus and dedicate yourself to changes you know you are ready to commit to. You may feel you are facing a temporary impasse or challenge, but use Saturn’s determination to plow through any depression or doubt.
Sun Oct 26
Today the illuminating Sun makes an exact alignment with Pallas Athene. This day will bear the fruits of insight and intuition, and ah-ha moments. Make time to witness your own astounding brilliance. Journal, draw, converse, strategize.
We are in this great awakening together, truly one Soul Tribe, a tribe of a Rainbow Humanity. This is the Great Awakening of which you are part. Let’s take our personal and collective love and compassion and make stuff happen. Big stuff. Life-changing stuff. Let’s reorganize our world around love and cooperation, not fear and competition. Lovegistics. That’s what this past week’s Partial Solar Eclipse called forth and will continue to draw out of us as we cherish and celebrate our Earthly Paradise.
Abbreviated week of October 27-November 2~The Sun/Venus Love Field continues….
Mon Oct 27
Last week’s uplifting Sun/Venus continues today and forms a harmonious, grace-filled trine to Neptune ~ considered to be the higher octave of Venus, symbolic of heavenly Grace and Divine Love. May this shower of support envelope you in magical ways. Be open, and receive a gift.
Tue Oct 28
The truthful, at times overly direct, Sagittarius Moon makes a fiery conjunction with Mars at dawn, then Pluto later in the day, igniting passions of all kinds. Passion is defined as “strong and barely controllable emotion”. Both Mars and Pluto are associated with driven willfulness. Yes it is a bit of an explosive day but you can also use these energies to power through anything!
Wed Oct 29
When the Moon squares the Nodes, like today, we tend to have to dig into our emotions (ruled by the Moon) and decide what needs to go, what can remain, and what should we call forth to assist us in furthering our life/goals. And since the Moon also squares Mercury in Virgo, last week’s theme of the pressure to take concrete logistical steps to organize your life continues.
Thu Oct 30
Today marks a major completion in the previous Mercury retrograde cycle as this messenger planet makes a final crossing of the North Node, further nudging you toward a beckoning future of possibility and renewal. You made it! You can re-read my previous Signposts for the past three weeks if you need to be reminded of what just occurred. This can be a day marking the making of a major decision.
Fri Oct 31-Sat Nov 1
This year’s All Hallow’s Eve ~ the 31st ~ and All Soul’s Day ~ Nov 1 ~ is marked by a stressful, yet creative, square of Sun in Libra ~ one to one relationships ~ to Juno in Cancer ~ the whole tribe of family. So there might be a tad of tension around who wants to go where and do what. There can just be lots and lots going on in your core relationships right now terms of counseling, re-evaluation, inner questioning. Keep exploring….
Sun Nov 2
Today marks a longer-range important shift as Saturn enters true astronomical Scorpio for the coming two and a half years. Scorpio rules shared financial issues, including restructuring debt, pushes for witnessing our darker, shadowed selves so we can undergo a much need transformation as a collective in order to evolve as a species, and also pressures us to go deeper into study, education, research, inner listening. Saturn encourages us to take a more disciplined (but not harsh or judgmental) approach to life’s issues. We will all be diving deeper into our unfathomed depths, and in doing so, discover great treasure.
Thank you holy Huckleberries for your delicious sapphire nourishment and your rainbowed autumnal brilliance. Bows to you.
