Welcome to a brand-new day! Today brings many blessings. A brief void-of-course moon starts in the morning and later moves into Virgo, giving everyone an inspiring burst of energy. It’s a fantastic time to let your mind guide you to some out-of-the-box solutions. Maybe you’ve felt stuck in place the last couple of days, and you now finally have some room to stretch and play.
There could be a brief struggle due to your need to hide a piece of yourself away from the world. However, you can reach a resolution by taking the time to listen to logical perspectives and focusing on intellectual compromises. Take the time to hear someone out.
Also, focus on your destiny. Listen to your inner voice as the moon pulls at your psyche, eliciting a deep wound you need to express out loud. There’s a piece of you that is ready to let your freak flag fly! Maybe you’ve been keeping this under the surface in order to conform to society’s ideals. Sexual and sensual connections are highly possible due to these transits. See who is continually circling and sliding into your DMs these days. This is also a time when a secret admirer could be revealed!
Pleasure is now plentiful. As communicative Mercury trips over offbeat Uranus, we may be more likely to do something independent of the crowd. We then see the confident Sun combine with pleasure-seeking Venus in Libra at 5:17 pm EDT, searching for a good time and good conversation. Mercury then trines serious Saturn, bringing us down to earth and helping us make positive long-term decisions. Finally, the sensitive Moon dances into balanced Libra, giving us a dose of Venusian energy to beautify the day. Remember to live lusciously!

DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT
20 | Dolphin spirit | This and that are true.
When you most want to be acknowledged as “right” and see other ways as “wrong,” Dolphin Spirit appears as a reminder that the story of your suffering and righteousness is a little more complicated than you are admitting right now. Do you want to see things in black-and-white, and be rigid in your ideas of what’s correct and what is not?
Release your rigidity and embrace the fluidity of life as you recognize the grays that remind you there are two sides to every story, an upside to each downside, and a blessing in every challenge. What you think is wrong may end up being right for you, so let Dolphin Spirit soften your heart so that you make the best decision at this time, playing with the possibilities that present themselves.
DAILY ORACLE CARD
VIII | 8 of SWORDS
The Eight of Swords depicts a blindfolded, raven-haired woman. Her head is tilted down, suggesting that she is resigned to her capture rather than struggling to free herself. She sports a burnt orange gown that flows to the ground, representing her unwillingness to free herself.
A strip of white cloth loosely binds her arms — it’s apparent that she could easily free herself if she tried. Eight long swords are planted vertically around her in an uneven, rushed semi-circle, yet she seems paralyzed by the fear of cutting herself on them.
Little does she know that they pose no real threat to her, just as the Eight of Swords poses no real threat to those who draw it. Though she appears to have been abandoned by her captors and could easily return home, she remains still, head bowed, awaiting her fate.
The Eight of Swords represents someone who tends to make a mountain out of a molehill.
They have a tendency to erect barriers around them, creating problems and limitations as a way of self-imposing inaction. Though unconscious, their efforts restrict their ability to participate in activities around them and limit their social mobility.
To others, the Eight of Swords’ problems can appear inconsequential, over-dramatic, or slightly out of touch with reality. However, the Eight of Swords does not engage in this self-limitation on purpose — they truly perceive their problems as objective and relatable.
Their inaction stems from a place of fear and insecurity, and they must consciously work towards identifying these fears to counteract their self-imposed limitations.
The Eight of Swords represents a lack of clarity and inflexibility in one’s perception of the world. You may find yourself overanalyzing events and interactions, trying to understand the hidden meaning as a way of protecting yourself from perceived threats.
You feel the need to always be safe, and run numerous scenarios in your head as a way of ensuring your preparedness. The Eight of Swords often feels anxious, convinced they’re in far more danger than they actually are.
You find yourself struggling between rational and irrational thoughts, often erring on the cautious side and deciding your next move based on “what if” scenarios. Though this may seem calculated and objective, it demonstrates a lack of self-confidence.
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.
