Thank you Laura! My grandmother taught me about herbs and she always said plants and nature were better for us than the modern chemicals.

Granny Spears ~ ‘Herbology’

When we got married Ernie was bringing home about £1 17s 6d.

Now this was long before we went decimal so in todays money that would be about £1.25 a week, a couple of dollars to you Tess.

Now, although everyone thinks that we have always had free healthcare in the UK that’s not so. A visit to the doctor when we got married amounted to just over half a months pay so it was pretty much out of the question if we wanted to eat. The National Health Service got started in the late 1940′s, before then we had to pay.

Unless it was especially serious we relied on remedies passed down to us over the years, and most of the things we used involved plants, with the occasional bee added for good measure!  Usually, someone local had what you needed if you didn’t grow…

I BELIEVE the phrase “comes in like a lion” usually is meant to describe the weather in March — but I think those words are going to apply equally to our experience of October’s energies this year. Starting on Wednesday, the very first day of the month, the First Quarter Moon sets off the ongoing Pluto-Uranus square, triggering another round of profound changes for many of us.

Since we are working with a waxing Moon, situations that come into our awareness midweek may build over the days that follow, as the Moon grows into fullness. Some issues may reach a crescendo during Saturday’s exact Pluto-Sun square, when we are challenged to come to a new level of self-awareness. With the Sun in relationship-oriented Libra, this aspect requires that we look more closely at the balance of power in our partnerships, both personal and professional.

An honest self-appraisal can help us see how we have contributed to any imbalance. As a result, we gain a more empowered self-concept. In so doing, we will be able let go of the power struggles that have been based in seeing ourselves as victims or less-than.

BREAKTHROUGHS — or breakdowns, depending on what each of us needs to open the doors to a more liberated future — are more likely to occur early next week when Uranus becomes more fully involved in the planetary interactions. On Tuesday, October 7, Uranus opposes the Sun; and on Wednesday, October 8, Uranus aligns with the Moon during the Total Lunar Eclipse.

More about that eclipse in next week’s Journal, of course. I mention it now because it may be helpful to observe this week’s events as part of a larger process in our development. We also will most likely not be able to separate this week from next week energetically, once we get rolling.

SATURDAY is the most highly-energized day of the coming week. Exact that day are the aforementioned Pluto-Sun square, a Chiron-Mars square, and a Uranus-Mars trine — not to mention that Saturday is also the day Mercury goes retrograde!

(By the way, taking all that into account, it would be a very good idea to back up computers sooner rather than later this week…)

It is always interesting to have one planet involved in two very different aspects on the same day. In this case, Mars forms a strong opportunistic trine with Uranus and a strong challenging square with Chiron, both on Saturday. The two aspects form bookends on the day, with the Chiron-Mars square at7:16am PDT and the Uranus-Mars trine at9:18pm PDT.

MARS represents the principles of Action and Desire. Whenever the red planet is involved in aspects, we can expect issues to be more energized and to raise stronger feelings than at other times.

With a square or other challenging aspect, Mars often prompts a “fight or flight” response. With the square with Chiron Saturday morning, attempts to display compassion or to rescue may be met with judgment or ridicule, resulting in hurt feelings or even igniting anger.

How we then utilize the positive potentials of the Uranus-Mars trine Saturday evening depends a lot on how we have chosen to react earlier in the day. The more we’ve dug in our heels and justified our actions (Mars in Sagittarius), the harder it will be to soften our stance just 12 hours later and take advantage of the inspired ideas that may present themselves as alternatives to going down the old rutted roads of discord.

GOING BACK to that old saying about March — you may be wondering if October will “go out like a lamb.” At first glance, the answer might be “no,” given that we have a Solar Eclipse/New Moon in Scorpio on October 23 and Mercury is retrograde until October 25.

But a closer look gives us a bit of hope — if not for a lamb, at least for a lion cub instead of a roaring lion.

The Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on the 23rd occurs when the Sun and Moon are aligned with Venus and Pallas Athene, and all four are trine Neptune. This configuration represents heightened compassion, intuition, and imagination, and supports healing on deep levels, especially through the use of sound and color.

And, it is also helpful that the Lunar Eclipse comes first in our pair of October eclipses. This means we gain insights and do our release work first, which then clears the way for important new beginnings to unfold. Something to plan for and look forward to!

The manuscript of survival – part 426

Thank you Aisha!

aisha north

Let us begin this missive by saying that you have by now already accomplished to pierce a few holes in that membrane that separates you from your own greatness, and like stars on the firmament, these small apertures will begin to exude a powerful light that will begin to attract you attention, but also the attention of others. You see, you are not just here to discover your own greatness, you are here to utilize that high voltage of light to create change on a vast scale, not just for your planet, but for All of creation. And before this adds to your already considerable pile of reasons to begin to think yourselves unworthy of all of this attention, know that you are far above and beyond anything that we can heap upon you of our most lavish of praise. For you are truly gods in your own right, but…
