The Oracle Report | Saturday, October 25 – Sunday, October 26, 2014



Oracle Report – Saturday, October 25 – Sunday, October 26, 2014

“To Boldly Go…” Scorpio Lunar Cycle Overview – October 22, 2014

Saturday, October 25 – Sunday, October 26, 2014

New Moon Phase: begin

Moon in Scorpio/Sagittarius

Ruling Mahavidya: Kamala (The Goddess of Assurance)

Skill: remain devoted to light

Negative Imprint: insincere, unreliable, breaking promises, temptation, uncooperative

Positive Imprint: simplicity, wish fulfillment, building, kinship, generosity, devotion, illumination

Many things are happening in the heavens this weekend.

First, Mercury stations direct Saturday, moving forward in the sky once again after a jaunt of re-starts, re-do’s, and re-working things to make them better. Communications, travel, and electronics seem to give us issues the day a planet stations retrograde or direct, but this fades throughout Saturday.

Second, Mars, the God of Fire, moves into Sagittarius, a fire sign. Masculine energy ignites with this configuration. It’s a good weekend to sit by a fire no matter where you are. This time around, Sagittarius the Archer’s arrow is set aflame by Mars. Engage the sacred masculine inside yourself and take aim at what you want – your wish, your desire for yourself and the world – and then shoot that blazing arrow at it. This is a powerful visualization for the New Moon phase and it’s trajectory will actually continue into the next lunar month.

Third, the Sun continues massive activity with an X3-class flare yesterday. Spaceweather.com reports sunspot 2192 “remains the largest and most active sunspot of the current solar cycle. By far.” But still no coronal mass ejections. This is a blessing from the divine being that is our Sun. A CME from an X-class flare would cause massive mutation and spread of viruses.

These are all big stories, but here at the Oracle Report, the headline is that the Sun, the Earth, Venus, and the asteroid Pallas Athena (which is archetypal energy of wisdom and skill) are making aspects to the Chiron Point. This means we are in for healing and learning this weekend. There is the element of “wounding” with Chiron, so that is present, but it really goes far beyond that.

The Sabian symbol for the Chiron Point (the degree in the sky where Chiron was discovered) is “a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.” Chiron seeks to enrich us and bring light. In one of the myths about Chiron (who is also archetypally Merlin, Gandalf, and a little bit of Alfred the “Butler” from Batman), Chiron gives of himself so that fire – light – would be returned to humanity. He was bold and went where few had. Many Oracle Report readers feel kindred with Chiron. Like Chiron, we are driven by a mission.

This weekend we will aim our arrows for fire and light (and maybe a combination of both if we are lucky) and affirm our wishes for the future. We want the rainbow. We understand that situations, conditions, and circumstances that come about this weekend are designed to heal and teach us something about ourselves. Let light enter those places deep inside you. Be assured that the Wisdom Goddess Kamala has your back. She doesn’t leave anyone behind so you can be bold.

It is an act of power this weekend to remain devoted to the light. It’s quite dark out there as the matrix falls, but we have ample abilities by which we see.

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

Preparing for Positive Timelines

Thank you Laura!  I’ve been pondering exactly this lately and as usual your explanation brings much clarity to my muddy mental waters. 
As much as I would like to believe in the golden age served whole and free of work on our part by “financial insiders”, aliens, or other mysterious wonderful beings, I have always smelled trickery in such claims no matter how sincere and good the individuals promoting them may be. 
My own intuition has always shown me this transition as a long process of change fully dependent on human integrity and determination to drive it forward-despite the support and assistance of fey, angels,  elementals and other unseen forces. 
I almost lost hope a few years ago when the apparent deep conflict between the time left to utter destruction and the time needed for change became impossible to ignore.  But then I discovered that so many more people were awakening and actively involved in creating positive change on all levels and in every country. 
I believe we have to be prepared for the long haul while remaining open to unexpected miracles. Magic is afoot as the old saying goes; -) 

One thing I noticed growing up that might be useful to share is that Ndns are the funniest people on Earth.  Most of them I’ve known have been dirt poor and often living through various types of hell.  But nearly all had an internal integrity and faith that changed the most dire situation into something more. Most were consistently supportive and caring rather than selfish or self absorbed. And most significantly, laughter, joking and play were rarely off the table. 

If we live constantly impatient for perfect, comfortable circumstances to arrive-we aren’t really living. 

But if we can learn to laugh, to spend the hours waiting for family members in life or death surgery telling jokes in the waiting room,  to spend the years of tumultuous change dancing through the wreckage planting seeds and wishing on shooting stars-then I think we will emerge from that river the Hopi Elders were talking about joyfully ready to make the new world as much fun as the journey to get there.

Laura Bruno's Blog

Due to some recent questions via private email, I felt led to clarify a few points in today’s blog post. Most of the people I encounter are, in fact, experiencing evidence of positive trajectories in their lives. Clients, friends, family members … so many of them have recently broken through previous barriers or show signs of imminent release from old bonds and limitations. I see this, feel this and celebrate the shifts. Yet I also realize when talking to friends who have “regular jobs” in “the real world,” that the slice of humanity I encounter on a daily basis represents a relatively small, unusually conscious, highly creative, and determined segment of this world. I have great hope for humanity in that I see and hear — daily — evidence of people stepping into their power, growing their own organic foods, creating spaces for others to shine their creativity, finding alternatives…
