Today is full of the type of energy that requires you to take it one hour at a time. The more you push yourself at the beginning of the day, the more you can rest in the evening.
The diplomatic placement of Venus in Libra harmonizes with Mars in Gemini, carrying forward an organized decision about your career path and financial prosperity. It requires that you follow the rules in some capacity and even play into the game for now until you get on your feet.
Today’s planetary alignments are highly motivational in order to change the outcome of your personal reality. If you don’t like something about yourself or the trajectory of your life, it’s time to really dig deep and move forward with your plans.
Your wants and desires expand with reverence. The goddess planet is extremely active, trying to keep the dream alive and making sure you don’t stop at the first hiccup. You can do this, but you have to do the hard work. This is an absolute test of your commitment, and that means the Universe is going to throw curve balls your way almost immediately. Do you really want this? Then you have to prove it both to the world and, most importantly, to yourself.
Connecting with others is becoming easier than ever. The emotional Moon enters creative Leo, putting a cosmic spotlight on how we feel. We then see the Moon trine ambitious Jupiter, lifting us out of any negative energy and encouraging us to be more open — as well as increasing our luck. The universe saves the day’s most powerful aspect for last: charming Venus trines active Mars at 10:20 pm EDT, sparking passion and charisma in our platonic and romantic relationships. Enjoy the good vibes!

DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT
35 | Koala spirit | Spirit has a plan for you.
Are you feeling uneasy and mistrustful of the world? Have you been hiding in a safe spot, afraid to venture out because you’re convinced that life and other people will disappoint you?
Koala Spirit has appeared to let you know that your faith is misplaced; the present safety you seek is already passing away, because all things are temporary and outer conditions are always changing. Find your safety by placing your faith and trust in Spirit who will grow the abundance that is already yours.
Perhaps you are acting slowly and overly cautiously because you lack faith that there is more for you out there than what you know. You may have boxed yourself into a safe place that has nothing else to give you and become so familiar with it that you have forgotten to explore. Are you feeling pessimistic and convinced there is nothing more out there for you?
Koala Spirit reminds you that self-care is meant to replenish you so that you can venture out again in faith, trusting that there is no limit to the joy Spirit wants you to experience. Be good to yourself and reconnect with Spirit to reclaim your faith in things yet unseen.
DAILY ORACLE CARD
XII | THE HANGED MAN
The main figure in the Hanged Man card is, as the name implies, a man hanging down from a branch. But contrary to the traditional image that comes to mind when you try to think about a Hanged Man (you most likely imagine a thick rope around the neck, used as a form of punitive justice in many medieval or American Western movies), here the character is hanging upside down, tied by one ankle (usually the right foot) with his other leg crossing the first one perpendicularly. In most decks, this character also has a bright halo around his head.
It is often implied that the Hanged Man card does not represent the victim of punitive justice, but a seeker of wisdom who deliberately hanged himself to acquire knowledge, wisdom, or clarity, like Odin deliberately hanging himself from the world tree Yggdrasil to acquire knowledge of the runes. In another interpretation, the hanging is also deliberate, but the result of selfless sacrifice, a way to solve a dispute by deliberately suffering someone else’s penance or punishment.
Regardless, this is a very introspective card, and usually a trigger for some greater enlightenment represented by the halo around the Hanged Man’s head. Complex, layered, but ultimately a great source of wisdom and knowledge, the Hanged Man card can teach a great lesson, and offer wisdom and initially hidden solutions to many problems through a deliberate sacrifice of the self. When you have to lose something in order to gain something greater, the value of the latter is made even more important in retrospect and helps you find your place in the greater scheme of things.
2022 LUNAR CALENDAR
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.
