The day starts with an active moon shifting from the love lesson of Taurus to a detail-oriented Gemini. It’s time to make a plan and stick to it! This is a cycle when you’re editing certain realms regarding news, technology, and even conversations with others. With this, you might also feel like you’re being given a very specific choice. You’re going to have to take the middle ground in many situations, for now, to keep your mind in the right place.
The Gemini moon could stir the pot, so staying away from gossip is strongly advised. The light of the sun shines brightly, however. The energy wants to dig at your inner fears beyond what you can fully process on your own. There’s a marked psychological aspect to these transits. Maybe you want to make a major change right now and are met with some resistance and challenges.
Remember that it really has to do with what your heart feels. These shifts are pointing out a new life for you. As Venus in Libra trines Saturn in Aquarius late tonight, the strategy of surrendering to the divine is what can open many doors for you.
Later, Moon harmonizes with dynamic Jupiter, encouraging people to be more generous and open with their inner thoughts. After that, she trines talkative Mercury in Libra, encouraging us to connect with others. That said, social Venus clashing with shocking Uranus could push us to share with the wrong people. Let’s treat our innermost feelings with the care they deserve.

DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT
42 |Otter spirit | You are never alone.
Have you been channeling all your affection to just one person, or counting on only one friend or individual to hold you up, heedless of your resources all around you? You deserve support and love from many people, and when Otter Spirit arrives, you are reminded that you have a community.
Somewhere is another friend who wants to experience the joy of giving to you and seeing your happiness as you receive their gift of attention, affection, and kindness. Otter Spirit wants you to open your eyes to see the love that is available to you from all directions. Do you believe it? Do you feel it?
Reach out to someone, and you will see that they want to hold your hand as much as you want to hold theirs. Love, support, and friendship are available to you, so connect with your community and friends.
DAILY ORACLE CARD
MOUNTAIN | STRENGTH
The massiveness of the mountain in this image – bearing the blankets of snow as spectacular hues from the sun reflect from its body – evokes a sense of impenetrable and immovable strength and stature. A mountain’s quiet, resolute immensity leaves us in awe and inspires us to reach for greater heights. Yet, it can also pose challenges.
The firm base of the mountain evolves to the narrower crest in its attempt to reach the sky. More daring individuals become enamored by the peak and see it as something to conquer, although it can never be truly conquered. When the mountain feels threatened in some way or simply shrugs its shoulders, the strength exhibited can wreak havoc for all beings caught on its skin.
It makes no sense to deny the strength you have at the cost of allowing yourself to be reactive and subject to external influences far beyond what is healthy for you. Imagine yourself as a mountain of strength, solidly grounded in the Earth, your head held high as if you were touching the sky. Do so without straining, just as the mountain itself does not strain.
The current situation calls for you to be vigilant, but not to the point of fear or paranoia. Be that rock of strength that you are capable of becoming. The solidness of our resolve will be clearly communicated when you model yourself after the towering immensity of a mountain, impenetrable and inscrutable. Standing steady like a rock is what is called for at this time.
2022 LUNAR CALENDAR
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 deeply 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, and the desire to win. Instincts now take precedence. During 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, and important spiritual discoveries are close. Do not try to hide the facts, but do not disclose all your plans, do not be too tense, and do not try to implement secret designs. Beware of resentment of someone from others. It’s easier to start things that require more courage, and 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, and secret esoteric sciences. This period is favorable for artists because feelings, and passions are hot, and 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 a property, painting work premises, showing trust, solving problems, sending detailed inquiries, starting campaigns against competitors, and 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.
