Today brings the moon in Libra creating a grand air trine with Mars and Saturn. This is a beautiful energy to lift your spirits and offers a wide array of promising opportunities for productive interaction and cooperation. Nonetheless, we must still find the inner self-discipline and focus in order to effectively make use of today’s environment — there are no guarantees here and little inherent responsibility in the atmosphere that will force us to stay on track. The potential for self-indulgence and impulsiveness remain and our sensitivities may still leave us frustrated or considering easy but inadequate solutions. You might be able to step back from your problems and see them from a more analytical perspective. There’s a strong feeling of harmony, with the sun and moon in Libra bringing many gifts of happiness and community. You might even be able to express some of the things you’ve been holding back over the last few days.

As Mars in Gemini gently connects with Saturn in Aquarius, there is a refreshing ease of mind. You’re able to work around your problems and see the more evolved side of the lesson. Remember that there is some kind of duality in everything. Whether you’re taking the good with the bad or understanding the lessons of the shadow side, you have much to appreciate right now.

You might even strengthen your connection to a wider group of like-minded individuals who also see the world from a more spiritual perspective, so be open to the people you meet online or off. Secret admirers can come out of the woodworks with little or no warning during transits like these.

DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT CARD
62 | Turtle spirit | Slow and steady wins the race.

 Turtle Spirit arrives to remind you that when you do what you need to do, putting one foot in front of the other and trusting that you will see your intentions manifest in perfect timing, your prosperity and love will grow exponentially.

Now is not the time to rush around trying to force matters. Move slowly, perhaps even so slowly that it almost feels as if you are not moving at all! This may be a time to crawl before walking, taking your time to align to Turtle Spirit’s place as you contemplate this road you are on, doing what you need to do in this small moment that will soon pass.

Turtle Spirit reminds you that sometimes the best action is to slow right down, so if it feels as if you are not doing enough, know that simply being aware of what is happening right now may be an important step toward determining whether you need to pivot or simply keep putting one foot in front of the other.

“True love and true success comes with Patience,” says Turtle Spirit. Focus on the now, and the next step will be clear.


DAILY TAROT
X | WHEEL OF FORTUNE

The Wheel of Fortune is one of the most highly symbolic cards in the deck, filled with signs that each have its own meaning. At the center of the card, lies a giant wheel, covered in esoteric symbols. There are different creatures that surround the wheel; the angel, the eagle, the bull and the lion. They are related to four fixed signs in the zodiac – leo, taurus, scorpio and aquarius. These four animals are also representatives for the four evangelists in Christian traditions, which is perhaps the reason that they are all adorned with wings.

The books that each of the creatures hold represents the Torah which communicates wisdom and self-understanding. The snake indicates the act of descending into material world. On the wheel itself, rides a sphinx that sits at the top, and what appears to be either a devil, or Anubis himself arising at the bottom. These two Egyptian figures are representative of both the wisdom of the gods and kings (in the case of the sphinx) and the underworld (Anubis). They are rotating forever, in a cycle, and suggests that as one comes up, the other goes down.

The Wheel of Fortune turns evermore, seemingly to communicate that life is made up of both good and bad times, and that the cycle is one that we cannot control. It is something that is subjected to both kings and workers, and that nobody on earth can avoid what is fated. When you have good moments in your life, make sure that you enjoy to the fullest, for what comes up must always go down. The same is true in reverse – when you are in a bad situation, things will eventually become better again. 

The same forces that govern the changing of the seasons, or the rising and setting of the sun is also the master of luck and the fate of individuals.

Greater forces that are outside of human control are at work here. The same forces that govern the changing of the seasons, or the rising and setting of the sun is also the master of luck and the fate of individuals. Where it lands is as random as chance – you may find yourself at either the top or bottom, but remember that no matter what the outcome it may not last for very long, for the wheel always turns.


2022 LUNAR CALENDAR


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.
