Wow, last week was quite a week! I don’t know about you, but for me, a I experienced a lot of intense changes and disruptions which led to me deciding it was best to resign from my job due to stress and personality differences. So if you had an intense week, I want you to know that you weren’t alone. I was right there with you and so were so many others.
But it’s time to move on. It’s the 42nd week of the year and that reduces to 6 in Numerology. Whereas 5 is a number of overcoming hardships, 6 is a number of celebrating victories. The Sun is in the balancing sign of Libra, so try to see both sides of your loss. The card of the week is the 5 of Cups, which I call the “Don’t cry over spilt milk” card. The woman on the card is too upset about the three cups that have fallen over that she refuses to see that she still has two cups that are full. What you have left after the cleansing from the eclipses is what you need to focus on now. So move on from the 5 energy of last week and embrace the fact that you got rid of something that was dooned . Things are going to be better now, it’s just a matter of time.

Sunday 10/4/15 Temperance
Last Quarter 2:06 PM
Moon in Cancer
The card of the day is Temperance, a card of seeking balance. And this is certainly needed this week as the effects of what the last lunar eclipse of the series cleared out. The Moon is in the watery sign of Cancer, calling for you to take care of your emotions and provide the self care during this delicate time. Moon sextile Mars will leave you feeling empowered to express your leadership potential. Moon trine Neptune will lead to daydreaming and imagination so you may find yourself indulging in the arts. Moon square Sun may bring challenges to your home life and this will only be amplified by Moon conjunct Jupiter which will bring about more problems and troubles in your relationships. The number of the day is 4, a number of stability. If you feel your stability being challenged, bring it all back around and look for balance in the situation.
Mantra: There are two sides to every coin.
Monday 10/05/15 The 9 of Cups (reversed)
Moon Void of Course 4:04 AM PST
The card of the day is the 9 of Cups reversed. This is a card of dissatisfaction and emptiness. Upright, all the cups are filled but upside down, they’re all empty! If you’re feeling like something is missing, today is the day to find out why. The only transit to note today is Moon square Uranus, a card of adventure and excitement. Chances are, you desire freedom in life and you want more, more, more. It would be a good time to go out and experience as much of life as you can today but be prepared to meet erratic people in the process because this transit is kind of crazy. However, getting out and about or trying something new could just be the movement you need to shake yourself from any kind of funk you may be in. A word of caution, however. It’s not ideal to begin anything when the Moon is void of course or when Mercury is in retrograde so trying a new restaurant or something else that is short term is the ideal approach to this transit in these conditions. The number of the day is 5, a number of overcoming trials and hardships.
Mantra: Seek and you shall find.
Tuesday 10/06/15 The Empress
Moon Enters Leo 1:31 AM PST
The Empress is a card of fertility and potential. Passions may be high and there are some difficult transits to work through so if feeling challenged, invoke the attributes of the Empress: passionate, full of love and appreciative of all the beauty around her. The Moon is in Leo, igniting that passion even more. At 4:24 PM PST, Moon trine Saturn will leave you feeling conservative and you will draw security for what is tried and true. AT 4:5 AM PST, Moon sextile Mercury will leave you feeling chatty and eager to exchange ideas. If you are asleep during these transits, they may manifest in your dreams. At 7:12 AM PST, Sun square Pluto will bring intense pressure that tests you in uncomfortable ways. You may find your foundation fundamentally rocked. This transit will make more sense by 4:00 PM PST when Mercury sextile Saturn helps you take a look at what needs to change in your life and shines light on what you can do to regain stability. The evening won’t be any easier when Mars opposite Neptune at 7:53 PST brings deception and discouragement to the stage. You best bet is to pour love into every challenge today. The number of the day is 6, a number of victory, so you’ll know how to handle whatever you’re up against today.
Mantra: Love is my weapon.
Wednesday 10/07/15 The Page of Wands
Moon Void of Course 2:10 PM PST
The Page of Wands is a card of the enthusiastic free spirit. Traditionally, he represents a young, enthusiastic person ready to pursue his passions but he could just as easily represents someone who is young at heart. The Moon sextile Sun at 4:40 AM PST wills start the day out with positive, harmonious energy. At 2:10 PM PST, the Page energy will show through with Moon trine Uranus. This transit will bring buzzing excitement and enthusiasm. There will be signs that positive changes are on the way and like the Page, you should embrace them because they will help you move forward after the challenges you’ve been through this Mercury Retrograde. Expect the unexpected and be ready to adapt if met with anything unpleasant. The Moon is void of course at 2:10 PM PST so there is a potential for delays in transportation and communication and this will, once again, be amplified by Mercury retrograde. The number of the day is 7, a number of reassessment and reevaluation.
Mantra: Life is an adventure.
Thursday 10/08/15 Page of Pentacles
Moon Enters Virgo 12:50 PM PST
The card of the day is the Page of Pentacles. Pages are the students of life in the Tarot. The Page of Pentacles brings new insights or messages regarding matters of the home, money or education. The Page of Pentacles is ruled by the detailed oriented sign of Virgo so it’s interesting that Venus enters Virgo today at 10:30 AM PST. She will remain in the sign until November 11. This will give you a month to look at the details of issues surrounding your material stability and see what you can do to strengthen it. The Moon enters Virgo at 12:50 PM PST so use the double shot of Virgo energy to see what needs to be fine-tuned in the areas of material wealth. If you’re working on a startup, the devil is in the details when it comes to success. Pour love into smoothing out those pesky bumps and you should start to see success. Moon square Saturn at 4:18 PM PST may leave you feeling a little down about your current financial situation but know that better times are on the way. The number of the day is 8, a karmatic number that reminds you that you reap what you sow. Success is entirely up to you.
Mantra: I get back what I put in.
Friday 10/09/15 10 of Cups
Moon Void of Course 3:12 PM PST
It’s the day everyone has been waiting for: the day that Mercury goes direct! Thank the Universe! So it’s appropriate that the 10 of Cups is the card for the day. It’s like the rainbow after the storm, promising a better tomorrow. What’s done is done. The past is the past. What did you release. What were you forced to release? Moon opposite Neptune at 3:54 AM PST will bring increased empathy and sensitivity but many people in the Western Hemisphere will be asleep for this transit. You may wake up feeling pugnacious because of Moon conjunct Mars but use that energy to motivate yourself rather than pick fights. Mercury finally goes direct at 7:58 AM PST. We’ll be in the shadow period until October 24 but there will be definite movement forward during this time. If you accepted the lessons of Mercury Retrogade, you’ll start to feel a burden has been lifted from you as the changes set in. Moon conjunct Jupiter will leave us feeling jolly and generous in the afternoon followed by intense sensitivity brought on by Moon trine Pluto. Expect tears of joy because there’s a lot to celebrate. With the 10 of Cups appearing when Mercury Retrograde ends, it means that a great promise awaits you. You had to go through what you went to in order to get to the other side of the rainbow. The number of the day is 9, a number that signals an end of a cycle.
Mantra: FINALLY MERCURY RETROGRADE IS OVER!
Saturday 10/10/15 4 of Pentacles
Moon Void of Course
The Four of Pentacles is a card of financial security. You may feel a bit miserly today and concerned with stability. The Four of Pentacles coupled with the transit for the day, Venus square Saturn, could bring disagreements about money to the forefront at home. This transit is challenging for all things domestic so it’s a good idea to take some time out and reflect on your needs and the needs of your partner or family. If there are concerns, especially about money, it’s good to be honest with yourself and see what you can do to help bring more stability to your home life. However, also keep in mind that money may only be the surface of any disagreements today. There may be a problem under the surface that needs to be addressed and money issues simply bring those problems to light. Take some time to go on a walk or out to coffee by yourself to contemplate what really needs attention and what doesn’t. The number of the day is 1, the number of a new cycle beginning so any discoveries made today will set the mood for the next 9 days.
Mantra: Money isn’t everything.
