October promises to be a month unlike any other. According to Mayan scholar Carl Calleman, this is the month that the ancient Mayan calendar ends (Oct. 28). Two days before this event the New Moon in Scorpio sextiles Pluto, opposes Jupiter, quincunx Uranus, trine Chiron and squares Mars. In layman’s terms: doors are slamming shut and newer, more brilliant portals are opening for those with the wit to let go of their dysfunctional past and move into a brighter future. This is happening both individually and collectively. The theme here is to be your brightest and best self. Work on letting go of the stress of material shallowness. Get to know your neighbors; you may need them soon. We are moving into uncharted waters in all the ways that we as a human race have known. You can pretty much dream yourself a new life. All you have to do is let go of the past and open to the future; your future. Things will be intense, but “intense” could go either way, up or down. Your choice. The Full Moon on the 11th will conjunct the dark moon Lilith and will bring a few shadows out into the light. (It’s time to heal those shadows anyway!) The Moon is busy this month and on the 20th will conjunct Pluto. This is always a very profound experience and can enrich you emotionally, but you have to understand this or the power of Pluto can overwhelm you. A celebration of some sort is definitely in order and on October 28th many of us will gather to drum and welcome in the new and unknown potential of our expanding consciousness.

Aries

You are loaded for bear this month! Be careful around the 19th and don’t fight with your intimate friends! Saturn and Venus ride together early in the month and that brings about some fairly harsh realizations in love. Expect radical regeneration through dying to your past later in the month. It’s a good change for you, even if it doesn’t feel like it. With Mars in your play house you would do well to create a more carefree and laughter-filled life. Expect the unexpected.
 

Taurus

Now that Jupiter (expansion) has gone retrograde in the body area, quit taking second helpings at the table! If you’ve been putting off getting a physical, now is the time. Home is full of action/energy. Are you using that to redecorate? Your business partners or marriage partners are going through major rejuvenation at this time, but only if you are paying attention. Career has to be spiritual or it will just be confusing. Many possibilities for inspiring insights through your dreams.
 

Gemini

It’s time you started contributing more to society. Where can you best be of service? You could start making calls and offering to help or donate clothing or see how your neighbors are doing. It’s time for you to pitch in and help make a better world. Mars is making you a little aggressive in your daily living sector. Use it to be helpful. Others need your strength now. If you have children, they are a rich and fulfilling part of your life, but they may need a little assistance. Ask.
 

Cancer

There is a strong emphasis on asserting yourself with your known talents this month thanks to the force of Mars. Home needs your attention and you need a little rest. If you have children, they will surprise you with their love and support. Career or Life Achievement is open to unusual and unexpected activities this month. The Full Moon on the 10th brings a culmination of one of your dreams. May be big or small, but watch for it.
 

Leo

You should join the gym because you have a great support from Mars now to increase your physical stamina and health. Everyday life is full of responsibilities, but a lot of fun too. Home is intense, but there is a lot of love there for you. You are searching for the meaning of life at this time, so it would be good to find a scholarly but not necessarily traditional teacher.
 

Virgo

There is a strong highlight on making money this month and that will be especially important for you. If you are in a situation that isn’t supplying the funds you need, you now have an opportunity to expand in a new direction. Your everyday encounters are fun, thought-provoking and a source of renewal. Write those dreams down. They might be a little prophetic this month.
 

Libra

Body/Personality, Talents/Resources, Committed Relationships are all calling out to you. What are you going to do about it? Don’t procrastinate. Take action. What is it you really want? Decide this month and go for it. Your friends will be there for you. Just ask. You are under major transformation again. Work with that and your life will be a lot easier. Did I say let go of the past? Please do.
 

Scorpio

Revitalize, rejuvenate, regenerate are a few words that will help you grow through the rapid evolutionary energies that are at work. Living is intense and you have many choices to make. What is it you truly desire? Watch for unexpected health issues to surface if you aren’t paying attention. Relationships are a big issue and will remain so for some time to come. Again, what is it you really want?
 

Sagittarius

Withdraw from the noise of the world this month. You need it. It’s time to renew and you can’t do that in a place of noise/chaos. Retreat. Sit by a lake. Join a monastery for a month. You get the drift. You really need a break “far from the madding crowd.” Friends have been a source of both grief and support and you need to rely on the grounded ones more. The Full Moon falls in your house of children, so if you don’t want any yet please do be careful.
 

Capricorn

One of my favorite signs. You are just about as intense as a volcano, thanks to Pluto being in your sign. But you, of all the signs, can handle that with the strategy of a Warren Buffett. The home-front is under unusual (hailstorms) scrutiny by Uranus (chaos), Lilith (shadows) and the Full Moon on the 10th. Old or new friends will be a wonderful source of aid.
 

Aquarius

You are just about jumping off the page of your reality! This is the time for you to really branch out and achieve much. Communications will be sporadic, emotional and unpredictable all month… oh well. Your home base is good and a source of great expansion for you. Try not to argue with the people you love. There is great energy for relationships, but you have to play nice.
 

Pisces

Wounds around how you present yourself can be healed this month. Many hidden talents that you were unaware of can come to your rescue in the financial realm. Life is just so big for you now. Please do enjoy it. You are going through a lot of regeneration/change and it is going to be all right. Breathe. The New Moon on the 26th will help you in your search for meaning in life. Open and expand into that.
