October Astrology Guide

 

Your Guide to the upcoming Astrological dates this month • Reading Time: 3 mins

Featuring: end of Mercury Retrograde, New Moon in Aries, Scorpio Season and her New Moon, Samhain and Beltane celebrations!

We draw inspiration from the stars for you, bringing you a soft conversation each month about what the cosmos may have aligned for you and the collective. If the concepts resonate, delve a little more into it; if our words bounce back and sound too mysterious, let them go Beautiful Seeker (we promise we won’t take it personally!)

Our overview this month is inspired by exceptional sky-readers, primarily our very own Founder Britta and her channelled Celestial Journal, and by the divine Cafe Astrology.

 
October 1, 2022: Mercury Retrograde ends

A beautiful time to enter into October, inviting soft reflection about the past few weeks.
Has your mind been a little like sleeping in a cloud, or chewing the softest honeycomb?
Ethereal thoughts and slow-mo through life may have just been the perfect pause to set you up for the coming last trimester of the year!


October 9, 2022: Full Moon in Aries

“She could be the force behind some edgy impulses that need release. Letting go of something that is holding you back, as you're seeking something new and exciting.” St Soleil Celestial Journal, Page 24.

We move from Water to Fire, Aries is a sign with four feet on the ground and a heart that feeds on passion, dedication and trying out new experiences. This full moon is our invitation to approach the last part of the year “head-on”, embrace our leader inside and ask the most vulnerable question:

What would I do if I had no fear?

A beautiful journaling prompt, dance a little with the idea for a few days around the moon coming into her full power….


October 10, 2022: World Mental Health Day

There is no denying that the vibration of the last few years on Earth has been impacted by health challenges affecting Human Beings in the most undiscerning ways. Calling for a reconnection to our bodies, and to one another, many souls were shaken and finding their way back to the Light is an ongoing journey.
This year’s official campaign: “Mental Health & Well-Being becomes a Global Priority for all” brings us to the vision of sacred circles, where we hold one another in compassion, humility and reverence.

In raising our frequency, we become free-er from suffering and are able to support those around us that struggle with mental challenges - challenges that hurt the soul and may originate from many lifetimes ago.
At soul level, we are all gifted from stardust the incredible ability to enjoy a blissful journey on Earth.

May this day be an opportunity for you to hold the hand of a loved one and simply connect. May it be your vulnerable chance to ask for help. May you hold yourself with love, empathy and kindness.


October 23, 2022: Entering Scorpio Season

“The sun is leaving charming Libra to enter worrying Scorpio. This is what, over the next few weeks, will fill your life with passion and ambition, wise investments, heart-stopping encounters, concealed conflicts, dreams (or lies), and withdrawal, depending on how each sign will experience these influences.” St Soleil Celestial Journal, Page 27.

How magic is the astral dimension: after a fully powered moon pushing us to feel the fire within and moving us forward, the opening of Scorpio in the skies stings us right where we need it. We relinquish our burdening energy to be taken - in full protection - towards journeys we may have never experienced before.

When was the last time you did something for the first time?


October 25, 2022: New Moon in Scorpio / Partial Solar Eclipse

“Reflect on internal patterns of behaviour that need to be changed. Depth & meaning are qualities that give value to our existence. There are many mysteries in life that intrigue us & invite us to delve a little deeper. This is a time when you find yourself seeking to understand yourself more.” St Soleil Celestial Journal, Page 24.

It is sometimes by taking ourselves out of our comfort zone, out of our everyday, that our lights can be polished and shine brighter, providing a clearer direction towards the ego-less Self.

We are beings of attachment, pleasure and enjoyment!

And once again, the divine timing with the Solar Eclipse (seen from Europe, South/West Asia, North/East Africa, & the Atlantic coast): new moon + Scorpio energy + eclipse may call you to cancel social events that day, create sacred space where you can hold yourself. Whatever perfect shape this takes for you, it will be the right one! “A profound opportunity to leap into a new sphere of existence beyond your perceived limitations.”

October 31, 2022: Witches New Year! {NH: Samhain, SH: Beltane}

Northern Hemisphere: celebrating Samhain

“Samhain is a major Sabbat for the Witches and generally recognized as our most holy of days. It is a cross-quarter day, situated between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice. It celebrates the Witches' New Year and the end of the summer season. It marks the end of the Goddess’ reign and welcomes back the return of the Lord of the Underworld who will protect and guide us through the dark Winter months that are now moving across the land.

Samhain inaugurates Winter, is the final chance to dry herbs for winter storage, and a night when fairies supposedly afoot working mischief.” More, much more in our Celestial Journal.

Southern Hemisphere: celebrating Beltane

“Beltane marks the point where the Spring energy is fully realized in nature. The energy of this time isn’t only about physical fertility, but rather how we might sow seeds for many other kinds of things: creative projects, more positive relationships, finding ways of expressing ourselves, and more. Now is when the flowers fully bloom, nectar flows, and green has returned to our lands.” More, much more in our Celestial Journal.

Overall, Beltane embodies the feminine energy of our universe, honours the goddesses of fertility, creativity and contagious optimism. Maypole dance, sacred sexual rituals, circles, bon fires all wrapped in prayers, are only some of the traditions to be exploring around this date!

All is said, sisters, brothers of the cosmic realms, the energy will be at an all-time high. Honouring our ancestral lineages of witches, in the multiple forms they may have taken, we wholeheartedly invite your divine dimension to plunge into the most delicious rituals. Through prayers, meditation, flowers and herbs, creations of all precious value, bring out your tarot cards and oracles and let Spirit guide you…
