Cosmic energy aligns throughout the day, and is reflected in today’s astrology, Daily Animal Spirit card, and Daily Tarot Card.
Today’s vibe acknowledges your efforts and marks a new season in the zodiac. The sun moves into the sign of Libra tonight, marking the fall equinox and a new change of direction for all. It’s that time of year when we’re all encouraged to go inward and recognize what we are harvesting from all our earlier hard work. It’s also a season of awareness of what is still required for you to tackle your goals going forward.
The Sun essentially trades places with Mercury today. The Sun moves forward into Libra and joins Mercury just before Mercury’s return to Virgo early tomorrow morning. The inferior Sun-Mercury conjunction occurs on the cusp of Libra just before midnight tonight. The shifts are significant. Our instincts feel tuned up although we will need to be sure we have a reliable plan or structure in place before we take too many steps forward. There is a drive for perfection that may serve to keep us focused and well directed. However, the Moon goes void-of-course this morning at 4:06 AM PDT and won’t arrive in Virgo until just after midnight. There are few leaders to guide our progress today so instinct is really all we have.
As the moon is still transiting in Leo, it brings a delightfully playful energy that can give you the boost of love that you so deserve. Self-love and self-care are important right now. You might have to sit with yourself and take some time away from the hustle and bustle of the world. There are plenty of things you can do to fully tap into this energy. This is the perfect time to set up an altar or find some other way to honor your spirit guides.

DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT CARD
9 | Brown Bear Spirit | Take time out.
There is a time to act and a time to focus your attention on patient strategizing. The arrival of Brown Bear Spirit signals that you are best served by foregoing hard work toward your goals at this moment and instead taking the time out to meditate—or just take a nap so you can refresh yourself and begin planning what you want to co-create next.
Come to know the lay of the land as you contemplate and imagine what you might do in this vast space of possibility before you, and begin forming a plan. Remember, sleep allows for dreaming and rest allows for clear-headed strategizing. How might you become the person you wish to be and experience whatever your heart desires?
Insights will arise as you explore the possibilities and begin envisioning your plan. Knowing what you want will ensure you use your energy wisely in the days ahead. Be patient at this time. Relax and be calm and peaceful so you can recharge. The call for action will come later.
XVII | THE STAR
The Star Tarot card is about reconnecting one’s soul with the divine — the transcending of personality, family, community, and reputation. It has to do ultimately with the freedom to be one’s self. The soul is responding to celestial influences — forces that can provide the personality with a stronger sense of purpose. The Star card helps us to remember our exalted origins and our attraction to a higher union.
This card could also be called The Celestial Mandate — that which refers us back to our reason for being, our mission in this lifetime. The Star reminds us that, in a sense, we are agents of divine will in our day-to-day lives. If we let go of the idea that we are supposed to be in control, we can more easily notice and appreciate the synchronicities that are nudging us along. In this way, we become more conscious of the invisible helping hand, and we better understand our place within — and value to — the larger cosmos.
The Star card advises that you rededicate yourself to your higher values, increase your spiritual cultivation and meditation practice, and surrender to the greater good. Connect to your higher self — a being of a larger realm traveling on an evolutionary course that started long ago and runs indefinitely into the future. This is the part you wish to contact and communicate with.
Now is a period for quiet contemplation. Listen for the voice within. Anything that would interfere with this communion may not be serving your best interests right now.
2022 LUNAR CALENDAR
9/25/2022, NEW MOON IN VIRGO: You might have a strong need for balance and harmony now. You probably desire to keep things nice rather than venturing into fundamental questions in order not to disturb the peace. You must learn to share your good and bad feelings. Do not be afraid to be who you really are, despite what is expected of you.
10/2/2022 FIRST QUARTER MOON IN CAPRICORN: You might have a strong need for being useful to the society and you look for justification in the outside world. You may underestimate what you want from yourself and for yourself. Shyness may be accompanied by resentment of the fact that others ignore you. Do not seek approval from the outside, it will not help you get rid of your doubt and it is harmful to you. You have to trust your inner values.
10/9/2022 FULL HUNTER’S MOON IN ARIES: The feeling of uncertainty can make you solve problems faster then is natural. Do not rush as if there was a deadline. Try to slow down so that you can decide what you want to do and proceed at your own comfortable pace.
A Full Moon usually brings things to a head. It’s often a highly charged time emotionally and with this Full Moon being in combative Aries, it has the potential for a few things getting out of control. Aries is the sign not known for patience – or for restraint. If we look at the meanings associated with Aries, we can begin to appreciate that there may be more than strong feelings associated with this Full Moon.
Being direct and pushing right ahead tend to be the traits we associate with Aries, so this Full Moon is a sign that tempers may be short and issues may provoke a hair-trigger response. Sometimes you need a big argument to clear the air – and at the time of the Full Moon in Aries, that’s more likely to happen than not. However, Aries is not all about the big fight and if you’ve been trying to make progress with a few things – but seem to have come up against some blockages – the Full Moon in Aries may mark the moment when you can start to move forwards and take action.
Of course, those two outcomes may be related because Aries indicates a time when people (and events) charge ahead regardless of the consequences. Events may happen fast under this Full Moon – and that may happen in our personal lives – and in the wider world too. The image that comes to mind is of people at loggerheads, largely because the person in charge, really isn’t listening to any alternative view and may not even care about any downside that is caused to other people – either personally or in a wider sense.
10/17/2022 LAST QUARTER MOON IN CANCER: Your feeling of safety is now related to your home, family and related activities such as cooking and gardening. You may be prone to emotional fluctuations; you should learn to forgive and forget in order to avoid depression from thinking too much about things. Your perception of the world can be very subjective; try to create a certain distance without being bitter. Due to your rich emotional manifestation you can create a real sense of belonging in the world.
10/25/2022 NEW MOON IN SCORPIO: Moon in Scorpio creates the need to delve into your feelings as deep as possible. You desire meaningful emotional exchanges now more than at any other time even if it is not easy and you are forced to change many things. Shallow relationships do not satisfy you, because they are not purifying enough.
The position of the Moon in Scorpio is very passionate and mysterious. All accumulated in the subconscious is put forward to the fore: passion, jealousy, aggression, the thirst for power, the desire to win. Instincts now take precedence. In these periods, more fights and psychological pressure. However, this time allows a person to more easily know the depths of his soul, to exceed his possibilities – a sudden transformation, the awakening of the soul, important spiritual discoveries are close. Do not try to hide the facts, but do not disclose all your plans, do not be too tense, do not try to implement secret designs. Beware of resentment of someone from others. It’s easier to start things that require more courage, determination. However, it is more difficult for criminals to cope with themselves, they are more inclined to extremes. These are the days of martial arts, the soldiers of the Spirit. More experienced people are more aware of how to take control of enslaving passions.
Not only fighters or those prone to crime become more active, but also those who are involved in power structures: military, police, security structures, etc. Increased interest in magic, magic, secret esoteric sciences. This period is favorable for artists, because feelings, passions are hot, the subconscious provides many opportunities for self-expression. This period is less favorable for teachers: students are more interested in love affairs and evil jokes. Favorable time for signing documents, renting out property, painting work premises, showing trust, solving problems, sending detailed inquiries, starting campaigns against competitors, making important transactions. A good time for activities in the field of police control, surgery, research, exploration, meat trade, mining, investment management, and also in the area associated with funerals.
