Your October 2020 Stars…

Times referred to are AEST.

This month I’ve chosen the beautiful deck called “Beyond Lemuria” by Izzy Ivy. I’ve added a few directional phrases to the cards so you have a ‘way in’ if you need to understand the card a bit more however, it’s often more beneficial to just sit with the image and see if it ‘speaks to you’…

Your Stars for October 2020

Aries

Relationships are not stationary, they don’t remain in the one place, they evolve and grow and develop. With that in mind, look at your relationships and become the observer for a while… Look at your interactions, your exchange of energy, and ask yourself what you both give and receive in each instance. There will be days when your energy is high and your ability to ‘give’ is proportionately generous, there will also be times when you feel less able to give of yourself so abundantly, and other days when you find that even being on the receiving end of the exchange can take too much of your energy. This month may be a roller coaster of ups and downs, but it all comes down to respect, firstly of yourself and your own state of mind, be it open, closed, or slightly ajar, shine some awareness on how you are carrying yourself and your feelings in that moment, and when you are able to – just bring what you can to the relationship table, and have no expectations for what your companion is offering, but respect that they too are bringing only what they are capable of in that space, and at that moment. A Full Moon in your sign on the 2nd highlights these themes and may offer you some new perspectives. ~~~ If you’d like to go deeper into how these themes (and more) may be showing up for you in your personal Astrological chart, contact me here and we can discuss the options in more detail.

Card 19 ‘Balanced Forces’ – Yin & Yang, Masculine & Feminine energy, a balance of duality, equality, balance in perspective.

Taurus:

Health is a focus for you this month and the best way to bring about a feeling of well-being at the moment is to do things that bring you joy, unlikely things like sitting in the sun with your eyes closed and feeling the breeze on your skin, seeing the beautiful orange glow through your eyelids, the warmth on your face, and letting yourself get a little lost in the moment… Focus on these type of activities rather than a huge diet change, or launching yourself into a massive exercise program – activities for a healthy mind and Soul will create fertile ground for a healthy body. It’s a time to bring out your ‘inner hippie’ and bathe in sunshine and moonlight dancing with flowers in your hair, without questioning ‘why’. There may be a tendency mid-month to expect too much of yourself, you may also find that you project that onto your significant relationships, so take a moment to ask yourself if this is the case and perhaps take the simpler route of acceptance and forgiveness as you take a few steps back to take in the whole scenario before you decide to sacrifice something that you’ll regret later. ~~~ If you’d like to go deeper into how these themes (and more) may be showing up for you in your personal Astrological chart, contact me here and we can discuss the options in more detail.

Card 3 ‘Sacral Chakra’ – Feelings, emotional responses, pleasure, sensuality, intimacy, connection, letting go, creativity, healthy boundaries, valuing your body.

Gemini:

There’s no room for negative thinking this month, bring more light into your life and give yourself a moment to absorb some of that glorious sunlight – it’s that beautiful time of year when the earth gives thanks for the season just gone and is in celebration of the one to come. Whatever hemisphere you’re in, you’ll be observing the changing of the season, and it’s always nice to stop for a moment in appreciation. With Mercury going retrograde on the 14th and taking a few steps back covering old ground, it’s a perfect time for you to look back over the last few months and just take stock, then look ahead to the months that are fast approaching, and finally, with an air of acceptance and Grace, bask in that sunlight again and release it all – just let it all float away. Now is the only moment you need to focus on. Let your mind be quiet for a few minutes every day, such a busy mind it is. During those moments of stillness you might like to quietly smile to yourself, a smile directed inwards, catch it in your Heart and carry it with you throughout your day… ~~~ If you’d like to go deeper into how these themes (and more) may be showing up for you in your personal Astrological chart, contact me here and we can discuss the options in more detail.

Card 4 ‘Solar Plexus Chakra’ – Personal power, independence, self-discipline, confidence, assertiveness, decision making, belief, expression of will, bringing ideas into reality.
From the Oracle Deck “Beyond Lemuria”

Cancer:

“Home is the nicest word there is” so said Laura Ingalls Wilder – I think Dorothy would have agreed with her. The meaning of ‘Home’ can be different things to different people, to some it’s the family home, the bricks and mortar in which cherished memories were made, or it could be somewhere or someone that makes you feel safe to be vulnerable and open, to others it’s a person they feel at ‘home’ with anywhere, and to some it’s a space inside themselves – it often resides in the Heart-space. This month it’s important for you to truly know what ‘Home’ means to you, it may be a combination of a few of these things, or it may be just one. Bring your attention back to this place and hold your energy there – let the chaos of the world go for now – your heart needs to rest in a comfortable and forgiving space, for you that’s home. “There’s no place like Home, there’s no place like Home, there’s no place like Home…” ~~~ If you’d like to go deeper into how these themes (and more) may be showing up for you in your personal Astrological chart, contact me here and we can discuss the options in more detail.

Card 6 ‘High Heart Chakra’ – Divine Love, selflessness, spiritual compassion, oneness through heart centred bliss, healing, gratitude, patience, joy.
From the Oracle Deck “Beyond Lemuria”

Leo:

Communication is the theme for you this month, you have a lot of things on your mind at the moment that need to be shared with a trusted friend. It may be a sense of ‘unburdening’ yourself, “a problem shared is a problem halved” they say – I’m not sure if it’s an exponential algorithm the more you share it but I like the essence of the phrase. The outward ‘expression’ of a thought, problem, or idea, breathes life into it – this is what we fear most – but that’s the very point that healing can begin. Keeping concerns to yourself, not letting them see the light of day, keeps them static, stagnant, and the only growth they experience is inside you. The issue appears to get bigger, it grows in your mind until it seems insurmountable and it triggers a stress or anxiety response, or worse. Giving it a voice can often bring a feeling of release and relief, our whole body reacts positively to it, our muscles relax almost immediately, we expel a huge sigh, possibly a laugh, and often the tears flow freely in that moment – the other person is a like catalyst to the healing, that’s how powerful ‘listening’ can be… ~~~ If you’d like to go deeper into how these themes (and more) may be showing up for you in your personal Astrological chart, contact me here and we can discuss the options in more detail.

Card 29 ‘Harmonic Flight’ – Seeing the Divine in the eyes of another, relationships with deep bonds, karmic connection, clearing illusory projections, creating harmony, being vulnerable, being ‘seen’.
From the Oracle Deck “Beyond Lemuria”

Virgo:

It’s time to reassess what you desire, what you want to attract into your life. Time to open yourself up to your Heart and really sense what it is that you truly want to manifest and what you want to leave behind. Don’t get too caught up in having to have everything exactly right, ducks don’t like standing in a perfect line anyway, and they have a tendency to leave little muddy footprints everywhere – don’t fuss over them, delight in the messy imperfection of them. If you find you experience anxiety when things aren’t quite as you like them to be, then you need to understand why – and do you want to move forward with that sort of stress… The duck prints will be there in an hour, even if you leave them overnight they’ll be no worse in the morning – but you’ll have learned something really important, that it’s only your stress that increases and not the problem your stressing over. Now this might not always be the case, you must of course take every case on it’s merits, but I can only speak to you about muddy duck prints – and in this scenario, I can assure you, they will be there – no more or less when you wake up tomorrow. ~~~ If you’d like to go deeper into how these themes (and more) may be showing up for you in your personal Astrological chart, contact me here and we can discuss the options in more detail.

Card 16 ‘Loving Compassion’ – Unconditional love, empathy, compassion, care, friendliness, benevolence, beyond duality, safe space, forgiveness through expanded perspectives, open hearted joy.
From the Oracle Deck “Beyond Lemuria”

Libra:

Put yourself first this month, you need some undivided attention – from yourself. The world has changed and you need to reassess how you are presenting yourself with this in mind. It might be that you change your look with a new hair cut, perhaps you’re suddenly attracted to a whole new colour palette and need some new clothes to show up the ‘new you’, or you might just find that you see someone new and brighter when you look in the mirror – whatever the case, embrace the new and release the you from yesterday, step forward from this moment into a new and better tomorrow. Home is feeling a bit too familiar of late, can you change the way you look at your surroundings or perhaps you could completely transform your environment to reflect the new you that is emerging. With Venus (your Guide) in Virgo this month you’re feeling a bit more down to earth when it comes to your relationship, and may be inclined to showing your feelings via more practical gestures such as chores about the home, some gardening, or even making a nightly cup of tea for your significant other. The New Moon on the 17th in your sign heralds a new beginning and gives you some motivation for that fresh approach to life. ~~~ If you’d like to go deeper into how these themes (and more) may be showing up for you in your personal Astrological chart, contact me here and we can discuss the options in more detail.

Card 44 ‘Shine Your Light’ – Doing what you love, time to thrive, giving from the overflow, life purpose, being authentically you, compassionate self-empowerment, loving life, trying things you resonate with, bringing joy to others by being an inspiration.
From the Oracle Deck “Beyond Lemuria”

Scorpio:

Time for reflection and rest. Recharge your energy and observe the natural cycles of which you are an integral part – you may notice that many of them are ending now, or transitioning to the next phase. You may find your dreams and intuition are heightened at the moment however, you may be susceptible to merging with the emotions of those around you so if you are feeling a bit too intense, or a wave of emotion flows through you, just stop and ask yourself if this feeling is yours or does it belong to someone else. This way you can recreate your boundaries and understand that the cycles of emotion you are feeling may be a result of an intensified empathic reaction to those around you. With your Guide Pluto changing direction again (moving Direct from the 5th) you may find that many secrets you thought were securely hidden are unearthed and it could actually be the right time to speak your Truth loudly and without hidden agendas. You might be surprised to find that the Truth is well received and if you are pure of heart you’ll find this can be an extremely transformative experience. ~~~ If you’d like to go deeper into how these themes (and more) may be showing up for you in your personal Astrological chart, contact me here and we can discuss the options in more detail.

Card 11 ‘Aether’ – Zero-point field, the void, blank canvas, threshold, anything is possible, time to choose what you want to bring into your life, endless possibilities, limitlessness, paradox.
From the Oracle Deck “Beyond Lemuria”

Sagittarius:

There’s a pep in your step this month, you’re feeling some relief and looking forward to seeing some good friends to share space with – social distanced space of course(!!). It’s actually possible to hug someone without touching them, just project that warm wave of love towards them and you’ll both feel more connected and appreciated. It’s all about connection for you at the moment, you’ve been really feeling the ‘distance’ from your social circle, now is the time to reach out and get in touch with them. You’re not necessarily after a ‘deep’ connection but you are in need of a chat and a natter – sometimes that’s all we need to feel some joy in our heart. You are very focused on the global community at the moment, what is the general ‘vibe’ around the globe, and how does that compare to the local atmosphere around your community. You don’t have to save the world, but you can do something about YOUR world – if we all did a little bit to make our own home a better place to live, the whole world would be saved in the process. ~~~ If you’d like to go deeper into how these themes (and more) may be showing up for you in your personal Astrological chart, contact me here and we can discuss the options in more detail.

Card 5 ‘Heart Chakra’ – Love for oneself and others, relationships, compassion, forgiveness, empathy, connection, receptivity, acceptance, generosity.
From the Oracle Deck “Beyond Lemuria”

Capricorn:

Now that your Guide Saturn is moving Direct again, you should begin to feel a bit more like you’ve taken back some control in your life. The last 4 months have probably been quite a challenge for you, now things will begin to feel more solid and you’ll start to feel more yourself than you have in a while. You can see a clearer and more positive direction ahead of you and time is no longer quite as wiggly and surreal as it has been. Now is the time to focus on your profession, or perhaps something that you feel ‘called’ to do, if you feel that about your work then you’re one of the lucky ones and you should put your efforts there, if you have something outside of your profession that you feel is your ‘Soul work’ then that is where you should be placing your attention. You’ll find it so much easier to be productive now, so whatever you love to do, do it. There may be some reluctance to put yourself out into the world at large at the moment, that’s okay, go easy on yourself and you’ll find that when you take the pressure off, you will be more inclined to actually achieve your goals. ~~~ If you’d like to go deeper into how these themes (and more) may be showing up for you in your personal Astrological chart, contact me here and we can discuss the options in more detail.

Card 20 ‘Beyond the Mind’ – Thinking with the heart, being present, heart and mind connection, meditation, the bliss of being, quieting the ‘monkey mind’, fathoming the unfathomable, finding happiness within, going beyond intellectual limitation.
From the Oracle Deck “Beyond Lemuria”

Aquarius:

The travel bug might nibble at you this month, you may be feeling some frustration at not being able to travel abroad at the moment. It’s a great time now to plan that holiday, immerse yourself in the process, watch movies from the country you want to visit, learn the language, listen to the music, and just dive into a virtual space where you can satisfy some of those urges. The most important part of manifesting anything is to put yourself into the experience within your mind, close your eyes and feel the warm sun on your skin, smell the fragrant spices, picture yourself there enjoying the freedom and fun of the whole travel experience… Do this regularly, daily if you can, and then let go and trust that it will arrive. If you’re a person who meditates you should be fine with this exercise, if not, it’s actually a perfect time to try that too, you may actually find it to be a transformative experience and one that you might decide to incorporate into your regular routine. ~~~ If you’d like to go deeper into how these themes (and more) may be showing up for you in your personal Astrological chart, contact me here and we can discuss the options in more detail.

Card 14 ‘Earth’ – Looking after the planet, the ebb and flow of life, the loving embrace of Mother Nature, the natural beauty of death and decay, the macro-microcosm, time in nature, ancestors, growth through weathering storms, nurturing self and heart.
From the Oracle Deck “Beyond Lemuria”

Pisces:

Consider the ‘Free Divers, they dive down to some crazy depths and sometimes they bring up a pearl, an exquisitely unique pearl – and sometimes they just do it for the mental challenge, and then they find the most beautiful pearl of all – they carry that one inside them. I imagine that returning to the surface would be akin to being birthed from the ocean, taking that first breath would be like emerging into the world for the first time. This month is your time to ‘deep dive’, to peer beneath the surface of things and find your pearl. You are feeling a strong urge for deep change and looking for ways to bring that about, or you may be about to launch into a whole new chapter of your life and perhaps you’re feeling a little ‘out of your depth’ – either way, change is here, it’s inevitable for you – embrace it, welcome it, accept it. Change can be scary, but after a while it becomes the new familiar, and you’ll wonder why you felt such reluctance and trepidation. Picture your path as a circle, not a line and once you begin the journey you’ll arrive back at the same place – in the words of T.S. Eliot: “…at the end of all our exploring, will be to arrive where we started, and know the place for the first time.” ~~~ If you’d like to go deeper into how these themes (and more) may be showing up for you in your personal Astrological chart, contact me here and we can discuss the options in more detail.

Card 41 ‘Realm Bridger’ – Visionaries, architects of the future, information from other realms, bridging the seen with the unseen, inspiration, seeding a new earth, traversing different states of consciousness, birthing ideas from subtle reality, journeying.
