It’s the 42nd week of week is death. (My apologies for the mistake about the week number last week). All the signs point to this being a week of good byes. Yom Kippur is Wednesday and if you’ve felt the surge of rebirth and renewal since Black Moon on 9/30/16, you’re not the only one. Almost everyone I know who is in tune has felt the change. And when things change, things die. The Jewish people believe that on Yom Kippur, the judgement for the next year is passed and the year you have depends on if you made proper peace with yourself, those who have harmed you, those you have harmed and the Universal Divine. Often, when peace is achieved, things grow quiet, like death. You bury what no longer serves you and find a new you waiting to be born. The number of the week is the number of the trinity 3; the number of Spirit. Let Spirit come down upon you, heal you, absolve you from your transgressions and free you from your chains.
Mantra: I am reborn.

Sunday 10/9/16 The Hierophant
Moon in Capricorn
Moon Void of Course 9:51 AM PST
Moon Enters Aquarius 11:33 PM PST
The Hierophant appears when we need to turn to the establishment for answers. This makes sense because the Moon is in Capricorn for most of the day, a card that is all about stability and foundation. Moon sextile Venus will bring happiness, harmony and love. As the Moon gets closer to entering Aquarius, Moon square Uranus at 9:51 AM PST may find you getting bored with the rigid energy hanging around. It could cause restlessness that makes people act out just to spice things up a little. The Moon is in the disciplined sign of Capricorn for most of the day. It goes void of course at 9:51 AM PST and enters the rebellious sign of Aquarius at 11:33 PM PST. The number of the day is 1, a number of new beginnings.
Mantra: Sometimes you need to try what’s tried and true first. And if that doesn’t work, try something new.
Monday 10/10/16 5 of Cups
Moon in Aquarius
The 5 of Cups is a card that appears when we need to remember to be thankful for what we have. Traditionally, the card features a man who is so distracted by the three cups that are spilt on the ground that he doesn’t realize that he still has two shiny cups left. Even if you’ve experienced major disappointments, know that there are other things in your life that are important. Moon trine Mercury at 10:07 AM PST will help you express any feelings of loss and sorrow that you feel to others. Under this transit, people are often kind and caring so if you need someone to lean on, it’s a good time to be honest with your feelings. Likewise, if someone comes to you, lend a helping hand. Moon trine Jupiter at 12:05 PM PST won’t let any losses get to you for long. This is a cheerful, optimistic transit that will help you get your head back to where it belongs if you’re open to it. Moon sextile Saturn at 10:28 PM PST will bring calming, grounded energy to the evening and will help you accept anything that has been bothering you. The Moon is in the freedom thirsty sign of Aquarius ,so this is a good time to set yourself free. The number of the day is 2, a number of balance.
Mantra: I am thankful for all that I have.
Tuesday 10/11/16 King of Swords
Moon in Aquarius
Moon Void of Course 4:49 PM PST
The King of Swords appears when we are called to use razor sharp intellect. The King is ruled by his head, not his heart. Everything is a fact or a number with him. He may seem cold, but he’s got the knowledge to back things up. If this card does not represent you, he represents someone that you will encounter. Mercury conjunct Jupiter at 2:46 AM PST will bring you an expansive point of view. You’ll be given a window into insights that will make you feel very optimistic about the way things are going. Moon trine Sun at 9:58 AM PST will bring happiness, harmony and flow. Mars sextile Neptune at 10:04 AM PST will bring out a compassionate side of you that is eager to take action. You’ll be inspired to help others today, by service or by random acts of kindness. And this will satisfy you. These experiences will bring life altering insights so be open to them. But you may want to get your good deeds out of the way early because Moon square Venus at 4:15 PM PST is a selfish transit. Moon sextile Urnaus at 4:49 PM PST will inspire you to get out and meet new people, see new places and try new things. The Moon is in the revolutionary sign of Aquarius and it goes void of course at 4:49 PM PST. The number of the day is 3, a number that reminds us that there is nothing that isn’t possible when we team up and help each other.
Mantra: Helping others brings peace of mind.
Wednesday 10/12/16 8 of Wands
Moon enters Pisces 5:43 AM PST
The 8 of Wands is a card of swift action. Something may very well fly at you out of left field today and it may be very shocking. In Judaism, Yom Kipper is the day of atonement when the Judgment that God decided for you between Rosh Hashanah is sealed in the Book of Life. It is suggested that you make amends with people you have had a falling out with before this day. the Moon is in the mysterious sign of Pisces for most of the day, bringing mystic revelations. The number of the day is 4. Things have been a little crazy because of the stars but hold tight, because everything is gonna be alright.
Mantra: Everything can change in just a blink of an eye.
Thursday 10/13/16 Judgement
Moon in Pisces
Honestly, the fact that this card appears the day after Yom Kippur and the fact that the card of the day yesterday was the 8 of Wands makes me wonder what kind of crazy energy will be on the lose today. The Judgement card is a card of confession, atonement, forgiveness and rebirth. Moon sextile Mars at 12:10 AM PST will give you the strength to face whatever is you have to face. Moon square Saturn at 3:19 AM PST could find your strength faltering because of pessimistic attitudes. Moon sextile Pluto at 7:20 AM PST could bring emotional outbursts. Mercury square Mars at 2:00 PM PST may find you taking things too personally. You may be so disrupted that you have an accident because you’re not paying attention. Remember to stay focused no matter what. With the Moon in Pisces, this could turn out to be a very enlightening and mystical day if you let go and let things flow. The number of the day is 5, reminding us that the Divine is just and never gives us anything harder than we can take.
Mantra: I accept full responsibility for all of my actions.
Friday 10/14/16 4 of Swords
Moon Void of Course 12:13 AM PST
Moon Enters Aries 8:08 AM PST
The 4 of Swords is a card of rest and recuperation. Things are calming down and now it’s time to give yourself a much needed break. Moon trine Venus at 12:13 AM brings happiness, harmony, beauty, love and creativity to the wee hours of the morning. Mercury sextile Saturn at 11:47 AM PST. You now have the space you need to examine your life, piece by piece, and objectively access where you’ve been, where you are now and where you’re going. But don’t get too wrapped up in it. The Moon is void of course from 12:13 AM PST until it enters the dynamic sign of Aries at 6:08 AM PSt. The Aries Moon will give you the strength you need to do some serious life dissection.

Mantra: Take a time out, you earned it.
Saturday 10/15/16 4 of Cups
Full Moon in Aries 9:23 PM PST
Moon Void of Course 9:23 PM PST
The 4 of Cups is a card of going within to find the answers you seek. However, it’s advised that you remain aware of what’s going on around you because you could get lost in introspection if you don’t. Sun opposite Uranus at 3:43 AM PST will bring interesting, intimate encounters. If you’re not sure what you want, this is a good transit to find the answer to what you’re seeking. Moon square Mars at 3:54 AM PST could bring pugnacious energy so keep your temper under wraps. Moon trine Saturn at 4:46 AM PST will help you get your head on straight again. Moon opposition Mercury at 6:53 AM PST will help you go within. Moon square Pluto at 8:19 AM PST could bring some intense emotions.

Moon opposition Sun at 9:23 PM PST will find your intentions coming to a climax. The Moon is in Aries for most of the day, giving you the energy you need to fight through the what I’m guessing will be mostly emotional or mental obstacles that may be standing in your way. The number of the day is 7, a number of all things mystical.
Mantra: I am open to becoming a new version of me.
