Today’s energy is important to experience. You need to be open and give way to hope and faith along your spiritual path.
Midday brings a fated aspect between the sun and the Sagittarius moon. This direct energy can bring some amazing surprises from the Universe. For many, it’s a guiding light at the end of the tunnel that helps soothe any problems caused by Jupiter in rambunctious Aries firing away at the patience of Venus in airy Libra. It’s the energy helping you make the moves that you need to make and take action where you see fit.
Our sensitivity may produce some rigidity today that needs to be dealt with in some way. The Moon’s trine to Chiron this evening seems to help break down our self-isolation and rigid approaches but the challenges of effectively connecting with others stay with us for much of the day. We need others more than ever right now. However, there are obstacles or stumbling blocks that keeps us from making the kind of deep, honest, and open connections that would help us to set aside our sensitivity and clarify our goals and aspirations. We may recognize the distinct need for connection but struggle with self-indulgence or concern that our independence is at risk.
However, make sure you do all this before evening when the moon wants to be calm and chill. It’s okay if you wait for things to fully settle into place. You’re gaining something special today either way. Also, you might have sparks and flashes of inspiration flowing through your mind tonight, making it tough to fall asleep.

DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT CARD
34 | Hummingbird spirit | Be here now!
Nectar is everywhere, but Hummingbird Spirit is here to remind you that flying from flower to flower and being all over the place wastes precious energy. Be still. Be here, now, in the present moment, enjoying the sweetness and sustenance available to you. Focus on one flower today—just one.
Nectar is there for you, and Hummingbird Spirit’s message is that wherever you put your attention, there your energy flows. Are you focused on the sweetness or on finding something better somewhere else, always yearning and feeling that life is not enough and you are not enough?
All you seek is right here, right now. Appreciate the present, and you will see that you are where you need to be and enjoying what you are entitled to enjoy in this timeless and perfect moment.
III | THE EMPRESS
There’s something comforting and nurturing about the sight of The Empress. The maternal energy this card exudes just bounces right at you! The meaning of The Empress Tarot card is ‘pregnancy.’ There’s no getting away from the fact that The Empress can represent a literal conception. If you are female, you could find yourself with a bun in the oven. Alternatively, it can mean that someone close to you (such as a sister, daughter, or friend) is or will become pregnant.
The Empress indicates an abundant outcome.
Babies aside, there’s always the possibility that conception will not be literal. Perhaps you must ‘birth’ an idea into reality in the form of a project. The Empress represents your thoughts coming out of a dark cave and into the open. The Empress is more concrete and visible than the other Major cards we have met so far.
The Empress also appears as a way to reassure you. The risks you take and the work you put in will pay off in the end. Finances are set to improve. You’ll have plenty of harvest and abundance in the future, so this should not be something to worry about.
There will be times when The Empress appears as a negative or something working against you in a Tarot spread position. I have found that usually, this means that female family members will interfere in your plans if you think there’s an individual interfering in your relationship.
Alternatively, The Empress can mean that any issues you have are down to your own emotions. You should try to have fun and relax a little – the future looks positive.
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.
