For the week of October 11th thru the 18th, be sure to read your Rising Sign as well:
If your patience is wearing thin this week, anticipate that it may get even thinner as we proceed through the end of the month. But this would only be because things aren’t moving quickly enough for you. At least by your standards. It may already be apparent where changes are needing to be made in order to bring your heart and your goals back into alignment. And we all need a little realignment now and then. But things are going to happen as they will, at their own pace. Perhaps it is enough to have the confidence that things will happen when they will. Sometimes the thrill of anticipation is all that one can bear. And with this Full Moon falling in your sign this week, you won’t allow any obstacle, no matter how daunting or intimidating, to stand in your way.
You may be required to be a little flexible this week, as alliances are shifting, along with your expectations. Truth is, your patience is wearing thin, along with your emerging need for autonomy and freedom. In some way you are evolving and growing in ways that even you might not understand. But the truth is, ultimately you are becoming a truer version of yourself. And there will be those who absolutely love this, while others will find this a bit quizzical. Sometimes you just have to do your own thing. Dare to break from the usual routine. Break the tension. Go off road. Have some fun. You will be glad you did.
It’s one thing to wistfully wish for something. It’s another to actually manifest your dreams. In some way you are being confronted with the reality of a situation. It may not be exactly what you thought it was going to be, but in some ways it’s even better, because you can now see how it may be possible to make a cherished idea, a closer reality. It may be as simple as doing the research, getting the paperwork done, or actually doing the footwork. It is time for you to pay attention to your dreams. For in some small but perhaps significant way, a vision for the future is beginning to unfold. It may not even seem so at first. But in retrospect you will realize that this is exactly what you’ve been hoping for. Follow your inspiration, it will lead you to what you need to know.
Last week we discussed the idea of perhaps having to give up on something that was once really important. And in the light of the Full Moon this week, it will become all that more important to acknowledge what needs to stay and what needs to go. And it’s not just about what you are or are not willing to deal with at this point. It’s also about what is the right and just thing to do. In some way you are needing to restore the balance and equilibrium in your life. And whatever is revealed in the light of this powerful Moon will show you where most of this work needs to be done. What do you need to release in order to regain control over your life again?
What challenges are you facing this week? It may be that you are being asked to confront some immovable force that seems determined not to budge. And it takes great courage and initiative to confront it. And you can do this. Even if it feels exhausting and overwhelming to do so. And even if you would really prefer to ignore it altogether. However, as is evident, some things will not go away of their own accord. Which means that some hard decisions may need to be made. What needs to change in order to deal with any challenges you are currently facing? This will all become more apparent in the light of the Full Moon. It is also the sort of Moon something beautiful and awesome is emerging. Something may need to end somewhere, some how. But at the same time, a vision for a brighter future is also unfolding.
We are stepping lightly into the shadow period before the Mercury retrograde phase in November. Things are being seeded now. And this has something to do with a larger vision that will soon be unfolding. We often wistfully hope for an ideal reality. But reality does not always support that wistful ideal. However, there are junctures when and where these two can meet. It may be as simple as doing the research, or learning something that you had not realized before, or discovering something that was previously hidden. The long story is that we are entering a period in which our dreams and visions are more capable of becoming a closer reality. So if you were to visualize an ideal, or a dream, what would that look like for you? And what steps could you actually take to make that happen?
Priorities are changing, and there may be a few surprises thrown in as well this week. Best to be a little flexible, and to keep your options open. It will be easier to follow through next week, after any excitement from the Full Moon has died down. There is no telling what is going to be revealed in this Moon which which is particularly relevant to Librans. The gridlock from last week may yet still need to be resolved. And you may be still biting at the bit to get things moving. However, trying to force things before they are ready will only exhaust you beyond where you are already exhausted. It could feel like you are climbing a steep mountain. All the same, if you are able to step back and look at the bigger picture, it will all be worth it in the end. A brighter future is emerging.
People may seem a little non-committal, or perhaps even unreliable, saying one thing and then doing another. And there may be a few unexpected twists and turns before the week is out. Nonetheless, one can only be intrigued by the glorious possibilities that are unfolding, allowing you to see that things don’t always need to be the way they once were. It is a natural tendency to hold on to things. But then there come those times when you realize it’s better to just let go. A new order is arising, and you are positioning yourself to greet it. And you won’t want to be carrying all that baggage with you when you get there. Think of it as a cleansing of the body, soul and mind. Sometimes it can even be painful to do this deep cleaning, but the relief that you feel afterwards can be exhilarating.
As daunting and difficult as some changes can be, they can also be exciting. What many are feeling this week are the result and consequences of choices and actions made that have brought you to where you are now. If there were any really big changes, then this could feel a little overwhelming, as you are having to make adjustments. But at the same time if you can step back and look at the bigger picture, you can then see all of the possibilities beginning to unfold. And by focusing on the positive, positive results are more likely to be gained. A bigger vision is trying to unfold out of the light of the Hunter Full Moon, and on you it looks good. In what way would you want your light to shine brighter?
If anyone has been intimately aware of the influence of Pluto, it is Capricorn. His powers of transformation are legendary. And traveling through your sign, every Capricorn has been coming face to face with the concept of reinventing and rebuilding their lives, themselves, their careers, their goals. And within this process you have also been having to make some hard decisions. Now that Saturn is here as well, it brings this feeling that one phase of life is ending. But it’s not just about endings. It is also about creating a new life, on a much firmer, more reliable premise. The Full Moon is shining a light on what further changes you might want to make in order to bring yourself more in alignment with these new goals. So you may want to ask yourself, what do you want to release, what might need to end, in order for you to have greater control over your life and destiny?
What may have become apparent to you over the past several days, is that you don’t always have to do things the way you have in the past. You may not act on this awareness right now, but you will certainly be considering your options over the next month or so. This may even find you pulling up stakes and moving on down the line, suddenly and unexpectedly. Or moving something. But in the mean time, you could be feeling like you are needing to make some important decisions. Especially in light of the current Full Moon. In particular it may seem to be apparent what needs to go, and what needs to stay. Sometimes we look so mournfully at the past, that we don’t even notice the new door opening right in front of us. It may be that you are not quite ready to let go of what once was. But you will be. All in due time.
This Full Moon could be both enlightening and foreboding all at the same time. But if we were to take any sort of message away from what is revealed this week, it has to do with the idea of doing the right thing. Even if that means having to part company with the current trend, or stepping away from the crowd. Allowing your moral compass to guide you, will lead you to where you need to be. There is something more. And that has to do with some sort of vision that is emerging, and trying to gain ground. We often will have dreams and inspiration, but we don’t always get to make them real. If you had the chance to make a dream a closer reality, what would that look like for you? We’re all going to be on something of a vision quest next month… and the seeds are only now being planted.
