Today’s energy is very much tied to the ambitious Cancer moon squaring the Libra sun. Welcome this lunar transit with open arms in order to experience the full abundance that the Universe has to offer.
Stability may not be easy to attain. We begin with the sensitive Moon squaring perfectionist Venus, which can make finding motivation challenging. This trend continues when the Moon opposes chaotic Pluto, shoving powerful mood swings at us and impeding our focus. Venus then clashes with nebulous Neptune, distorting our view of others and their appearances. Finally, we’re granted some relief once the confident Sun trines ambitious Mars at 6:05 pm EDT, reinvigorating us and shaking off any bad vibes. Have faith that motivation will return.
There are plenty of surprises that could manifest right now, even with a stressful cardinal t-square incorporating the Sun, Moon, and Pluto. Today brings new developments in relationships and connections all around. Those partnerships that were hanging by a thread may not last through these transits. Highly plausible is taking a step in the direction of either commitment or separation. Hidden affairs begin to breach the surface. If you’re doing something undercover, the days ahead are the time to be completely honest about your romantic endeavors. Someone might be playing you for their own enjoyment.
Is “the one” really here in your life, or are you just filling the space in order to satisfy your needs? These are some questions you need to ask yourself in order to take a step forward. This is the perfect time to write a different story for your life and give yourself space to grow a more vibrant spiritual garden.

DAILY ORACLE CARD
IX | JUSTICE
In this card, a middle-aged man is sitting on a wooden bench while his arms are crossed, and his face is showing quite a level of contentment. He is dressed elegantly and has the look of true satisfaction. The headdress on his head is a depiction of his active mind. In his background, you will notice there are nine golden cups, structured and arranged in an orderly manner. The Nine of Cups symbolizes a representation of fulfillment and success, both spiritually and materially. The man shows that expression of success after achieving his innermost desire.
After a long journey, the Nine of Cups symbolizes the finding of self-satisfaction. The emotional journey of the cups is starting to come to a close after the volatile ups and downs you faced in the earlier numbers of this suit. You have struggled to find purpose and joy after loss, you have tasted the different things that life offers, and you have left comfort in order to find greater heights. Here, you have found them, and you are indulging yourself as you celebrate this new stage of your life.
When we look at the Nine of Cups, it can initially seem like one of the most pleasant cards that may appear during a reading. This is also referred to as the wish card, which means that the things that you desire, or your most perfect dream is bound to happen. The Nine of Cups is normally associated with extreme happiness and satisfaction.
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.
