Henry A. Giroux, Truthout: Those who fight against neoliberalism must not settle for reforming a system that is as broken as it is dangerous. Any viable, transformative struggle will need a boldly democratic vision; durable, longstanding organizations and strategies that make politics meaningful.

Third Quarter Moon Phase: completion

Moon in Leo

Skill: respond to opportunities

Negative Imprint: obsession, reliance on that which is not reliable, seeking recognition, denying happiness, gloomy outlook

Positive Imprint: inspiration, balance, logic, wonder, promises, uniqueness, fulfillment, wishes, revitalization, sunny outlook

On Tuesday, October 14, 2014, at 2:37 pm ET/ 6:37 pm UT, the Sun released an M1.1-class flare with coronal mass ejection.

To gain the best understanding of the effects on the energy, we look at the position of the Moon at the time. The Moon was at 10 Cancer, in opposition to Pluto. The Sabian symbol (ancient energetic code) for 10 Cancer is “a large diamond in the first stage of the cutting process.” This symbol speaks to situations taking a long time to develop, coming from a deep place to now be revealed. The edges are polished off and we become faceted beings.

The Gnostic teachings tell us that humanity was never designed for growth within a multi-planet solar system. A system with a Sun, a Moon, and a planet was the intention. But the plan went seriously astray and humanity has operated under the pummeling or “faceting” of their light bodies via the energy of multiple planets. It creates superhumans who learn and create very, very quickly.

But it has also created insanity – a culture cut away from its own nature and its own planet.

The good news is that is all changing. A transformation is occurring. And today, this transformation comes with new opportunities and potentials. Courtesy the Sabian symbol of the position of the Earth today, one of my favorites, “an open window and a net curtain blowing into a cornucopia,” these insights, possibilities, and options “blow” right to us. It’s refreshing energy that clears away things that have become cumbersome. It directs us along a new course.

So be on watch today for what is out-of-the-ordinary. Watch for sightings of animals you don’t usually see. Watch for inspiration to fill a void. Watch for unusual alternatives. This energy is eccentric. It follows its own tune without apology.

Keep your options open, but don’t dismiss opportunities that feel hopeful and exciting. I like the energy of this symbol because it brings good things and good news from out of the blue without the trauma that can accompany surprises and shocks. We are so traumatized by the pummeling of the planets and the manipulation away from the Earth that we wince when we get a whiff of a personal change. You can trust the insights and possibilities that blow in today because they come from the purity of Spirit.

The overall energy is still quite intense today with all that is developing on the global scale. The Sun will conjunct Mercury, which is retrograde, so Mercury retrograde-type of issues will flare. Travel, electronics, and communications (especially electronic communications) may present challenges. We slow down and realize we may have to repeat things, knowing that a better way or better outcome will emerge from it. We need to re-imprint our notion of Mercury’s retrograde as a time of fine-tuning and reworking things to improve them. It’s extra time to reinforce the structure and makeup of things.

Be aware that the “blowing in” themes today and the month-long theme of lunacy could make things go “viral” and “crazy.” Viruses are alive and respond to energy as well. We could see an increase in the number of identified people with Ebola and other infectious agents.

With the Moon’s movement into Leo today, it is also a Black Moon day, so those with the Sun or Black Moon in Leo or Aquarius will experience the third to the last stage of rebirth – two more stages to go before the Black Moon moves in Virgo on November 27th! Everyone’s shadow sides tend to come out for recognition and integration on Black Moon days. Be very aware that your core fear (as indicated by the Black Moon on the day you were born and listed in the Appendix of my book on the Black Moon, available for free on the Books tab atwww.oraclereport.com) may be triggered. If so, acknowledge it and facilitate the healing process by understanding that the fear is an illusion. It’s a paradox. A trick. Those with the Black Moon in Leo fear change but they are the change-makers. Their energy (and their creations) naturally change the shape, order, and status of things. They enable us to see the world in multiple ways. The fears of the Black Moon are always nonsense because they have us fearing our true nature, distorting the truth of it.

We top off this day of opportunities, options, and possibilities, with Mars moving to the degree of “a bluebird standing at the door of happiness.” By all means, step through the doors that are opening today. In collaboration with the Goddess of the Earth, we are returning wisdom and sanity to the world. As the arduous process unfolds, we respond to opportunities as they are presented. Today brings such things.

Happy day, everyone. Find beauty. Find the bluebird of happiness. Find what is trying to reach you. It’s mind blowing.

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