Challenges can come from different angles at once. The confident Sun squares transformative Pluto at 9:33 am EDT, kicking off our day with a bang by encouraging egotistical mindsets and shocking events. The sensitive Moon also disagrees with erratic Uranus, adding more reactivity. Zen outlooks may disappear! The Moon then opposes critical Saturn, inviting self-doubt and outside disapproval. Finally, communicative Mercury contradicts wounded healer Chiron, which may lead to the reopening of old emotional wounds mid-conversation.
Mercury in Libra opposes centaur Chiron in Aries, and this aspect helps you see the overview of what’s going on instead of getting caught in the trenches of the current cosmic alignments. It’s a new take on an old story with poetic undertones being brought to the surface via this fixed dynamic.
This aspect could cause someone or something to try to throw you off your game. Stay mentally positive and know that the shade being sent your way has nothing to do with who you are. It’s all about what you trigger in others in general. Sometimes jealousy comes out in weird ways, and, unfortunately, it can be sparked by someone’s inability to see who they are in the mirror.
Luckily, the karmic connections require everybody to contend with their own demons. Nobody is getting off easy here, and right now zooming out and looking at the forest instead of the trees is the best strategy of all. The square of both Mercury and Venus in Libra to Pluto in Capricorn adds context to the plan and helps those with business ambitions to ground to their ideas. It’s a perfect day to dive into your career pursuits, which is where you can meet your competitors head-on!

DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT
41 | Nightingale spirit | Love is all around.
The darker the skies, the more it seems the dawn will never appear, but Nightingale Spirit is here to remind you that the sun will shine again. You will soon feel the love and notice the abundance that surrounds you.
Sing now—put on some music or simply sing in the empty space, for finding the light within and giving it voice will give rise to hope and help you begin to hear the call of another who, like you, was beginning to fear the light would never come. Bring the light into the darkness with love from within.
Give it voice and know that daybreak will be here soon.
DAILY ORACLE CARD
I | THE MAGICIAN
Traditionally, The Magician is one who can demonstrate hands-on magic — as in healing, transformative rituals, alchemical transmutations, charging of talismans, and the like. A modern Magician is any person who completes the circuit between heaven and Earth; one who seeks to bring forth the divine gold within her or himself.
At the birth of Tarot, even a gifted healer who was not an ordained clergyman was considered to be in league with The Devil. For obvious reasons, the line between fooling the eye with sleight of hand and charging the world with magical was not clearly differentiated in the early Tarot cards.
The image of The Magician as the solitary ritualist communing with the spirits of the elements — with its formal arrangement of symbols — is a token of the freedom we have in modern times to declare our spiritual politics without fear of reprisal. The older cards were never so explicit about what The Magician was doing. It’s best to keep your imagination open with this card. Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by evolutionary forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul.
Have faith in your innate creativity. The Magician advises you give your questioning nature and free-associating mind plenty of room to explore the subject at hand. Behave just as if you were an open-minded and curious scientist. Through this process, you may bring freshness and clarity into the situation that is both stimulating and catalytic.
You do not have to understand it all intellectually. Besides, intuition is your ace in the hole. Respond in a spontaneous manner to what is right in front of you. There is no reason to hold yourself back. Your natural urges are exactly what is needed, and, your ingenuous timing and elegant style will help smooth over any awkwardness.
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.

Driven and action-packed Mars hit the brakes in chatty Gemini for the rest of the year, making the upcoming few months feel slower. Every aspect of our lives will be put on pause and create major delays—especially when it comes to communicating our thoughts and ideas. Use this as an opportunity to take a break.
