Friendship is paramount! Charming Venus trines dependable Saturn to spark new, long-lasting relationships and highlight the people who have been there for you. The social Moon embraces Venus and turns up the good vibes, making conversations easy as pie. The Moon then trines the confident Sun, adding a creative element to our communication. A little exaggeration can have confusing effects, especially when the Moon squares confusing Neptune. Have fun — just remember that there might be some overly creative storytelling.
Today is a time to stick to routines, make plans, and not give in to anyone’s demands through much of the day, Focusing on work and your goals is what it’s all about. You have set out on this path for a specific purpose, and the moon in Gemini gives you the advantage. Making lists and checking them twice can help you use the airy vibes.
Remember that everyone is a direct reflection of someone else. We all have different things to teach one another. Someone’s lesson for you might be about following your own path. There is both a need to go your own way and a desire to try to bring your friends along with you. For now, this is not a group effort. Instead, it’s a perfect day to plan your future.
Paying careful attention to your spending habits will help propel you to the next level. Making sure you keep yourself on track helps to restore your personal energy and keeps you from resenting those who tried to exert their power over you in the past. Mars is still digging up worms in your proverbial garden, so this could be a childhood wound coming to the surface.
There is also a strong spiritual aspect here that is making you a more solid presence in the game. Mars will be in Gemini until January, so this is a long-term transit. Right now, you can see your own evolutionary path more constructively.

DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT
65 |Whale spirit | Trust the great mystery.
Whale Spirit is an ancient creature who was here at the beginning of time and who has seen everything, felt everything, and heard everything that has ever transpired on this planet.
In the Hidden Realms where all things must gather first before manifesting into form, Whale Spirit is the keeper, singing the soul of the whole world from the deepest waters of the coldest seas.
When Whale Spirit appears, it is a reminder that there is a Great Mystery that you must accept without intellectually trying to understand it. Some things cannot be known by the mind, only experienced through the heart, through intuition and through the peripheral senses that part the invisible veils separating the visible world from the Great Manifesting Consciousness in the hidden realms.
Now is the time for you to immerse yourself in the Great Mystery of Spirit and to trust that within the Invisible, what you can’t see now are the seeds of your intentions being tended to by angels.
DAILY ORACLE CARD
II | THE HIGH PRIESTESS
The meaning of the High Priestess is related to inner knowledge. Her appearance in a reading can signify that it is time for you to listen to your intuition rather than prioritizing your intellect and conscious mind. When the High Priestess shows up it can depict an archetype known as the divine feminine – the mysterious female that understands and holds the answers to the deep unknowns; religion, self, and nature. She represents someone that is intuitive and beginning to open to her or his spirituality. Meditation, prayer, and new spiritual work are indicated.
The card itself shows a night-time scene, meaning that the world in which she protects and guards is one that may at first seem frightening, but has the potential to lead us into the growth of the self. When she appears in a reading, she is calling to you to listen to her message, and follow her into your own depths. There is searching within yourself to be done for the answers that you seek. The answers to the questions you have are within, not without.
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.
