The Oracle Report | Saturday, October 4 – Sunday, October 5, 2014



“Galactic Connection Radio” with Alexandra Meadors

“Galactic Connection” September 30, 2014

Libra 2014 Cycle: “Time to Respond”

Libra 2014 Cycle – Time to Respond


Saturday, October 4 – Sunday, October 5, 2014

Saturday: First Quarter Moon Phase Sunday: Gibbous Moon Phase

Saturday: Moon in Aquarius Sunday: Moon in Aquarius/Pisces

Skill: slow down

Negative Imprint: gloomy, irresponsible, not growing up, repressing emotions, desertion, loneliness, hopes dashed, frenzied, miscommunication

Positive Imprint: emergence, passage, liberation, flights of fancy, creativity, sustenance, nourishment, simplicity, effervescence

We’ve been building to Saturday’s energy throughout the First Quarter Moon phase and are prepared for an intense day. Mercury stations retrograde (appears to move backward in the sky) Saturday, the Sun will activate Pluto and Uranus, and the Moon will oppose the Black Moon. Translation:

  • Communication, travel, and electronics tend to be disrupted. But here’s the good news you may not know about this Mercury retrograde. The Sabian symbol for the degree of Mercury’s retrograde is “neighbors help in a house-raising party in a small village.” It’s about building. During this retrograde, the “nexusing” and networking of like-minded people that has been happening over the last two months will expand. This is a wonderful thing and will ultimately filter into a strengthening and structuring of humanity. So let’s flip all the hating of Mercury retrograde into excitement over the opportunities for deeper connections. Mercury will be retrograde until October 25. Note also that Mercury is stationing retrograde opposite the Chiron Point, activating the healing powers of Chiron (and all the wise owls out there who are Chiron-dominant).
  • Nature will teach or reveal something important to us. Under the cycle of light and life, we are in a month (as one wise owl put it yesterday) where everyday is like a Full Moon. This means we have the maximum amount of light with which to see. There is an emotional impact with many of the insights that come today. It’s transformational.
  • Surprises and changes, especially within romantic relationships, are highlighted. Rejections are common under this energy. If you experience this, you can rest assured that what is happening is actually a blessing in disguise. Uranus saves us by our rejections when its energy is in play. The more we can open to the change, the easier it is to handle.
  • It’s a “Black Moon day” – my name for one of the 18 days/opportunities when those with the Sun or Black Moon in Leo or Aquarius undergo rebirth, and when the rest of us tend to be confronted with or project shadow sides. This transit occurs between 2:30 pm ET/6:30 pm UT and 7:30 pm ET/11:30 pm UT. A part of us or someone else that needs to be recognized comes out. Keep in mind that if someone is under emotional stress or their astrological chart (their energy) is being activated in certain ways, they will project their feelings onto others maybe you. We project what we cannot face in ourselves. Also, if you have felt confused or in a fog lately, this transit may bring you out of that.

All in all, new things emerge with Saturday’s energy. It just may come about in the midst of chaos, however. We are walking the line we’ve been holding, responding as necessary. Responses may need to be fast and furious today, so be prepared. All kinds of opportunities are opening up for passage.

At the same time, we are witnessing the crumbling, the dissolution of the old paradigm and the slave mentality of the old world order – the unnatural world order. The world is changing right before our eyes. Don’t be fooled that all is lost. All is being recovered.

Sunday brings the next Moon phase, the Gibbous phase, and a real switch in the energy. Gibbous phases are the “magical” time of the month when we can manifest things with much less effort. The Moon will be in dreamy Pisces also. It’s not a day to be serious. It’s a day to ignite your imagination and integrate childlike wonderment in some way. It’s a day for mysteries! Slow down and lighten up as much as possible.

Emotions will run high on Sunday, and pressured situations may reach tipping point. Undefined anger is common under the energetics. It can bring explosive outbursts and collateral damage. Again, try to slow down any situations that start to unravel.

Be aware also that there are certain energetic signatures Sunday that fuel feelings of abandonment, separation, and loneliness. It can be bitter. It is our job to reverse this energetic imprint. Connect with the unseen and sustaining fires of Gaia Sophia’s dreaming. We are constantly immersed and merged with her. There is no separation. It is never lost to us. Let her fill the space in your heart that feels like a void. Ignite the fire that is already there and feel the healing warmth radiate through you.

Love, light, and a happy weekend to all of the wise owls with wings over the world. Nice work!

Thank you for supporting the Oracle Report. Blessings to all!
