If You Were Born Today, October 22

TRUE LOVE

If You Were Born Today, October 22

Although you are personally magnetic, you have a manner that is slightly intimidating to others, making you a little hard to get close to. You give off the subtle impression that perhaps you don’t really need new people in your life. You do, although you tend to be somewhat selective when it comes to your social life, simply because your work is extremely important to you and you value your time. There is a no-nonsense directness about you that inspires trust in others, however. You give the impression of solidity, strength of character, dependability, and honesty. Although you are an idealist and visionary, you still manage to keep your feet on the ground. You don’t seem capable of doing things halfway, and that includes your relationships! You are quite focused on achieving in life. Famous people born today: Jeff Goldblum, Catherine Deneuve, Deepak Chopra, Christopher Lloyd, Franz Liszt, Annette Funicello, Carlos Mencia, Bob Odenkirk.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

Your mind is often working at top speed and perhaps ahead of itself in the period ahead! You find it easier to assert your desires and opinions. However, there can be times when you’re too hasty or impatient. You might often get frustrated if the results of your actions are not instant, but it’s best to cultivate some patience when it comes to realizing your goals.

Even so, Uranus finishes its transit opposite your Sun in January 2019, and this can help stabilize your life tremendously.

As well, with certain projects, you’re willing to go all in, and you can feel pleasantly dedicated to your work or ideas. This is a good time for serious and determined study and investigation as long as you’re engaged and motivated. You’re drawn to unexplored topics and ideas as well as looking for truths. You’re persuasive, too! You are inclined to do a lot of “digging,” researching, analyzing, investigating, and getting to the bottom of things. Increased psychological awareness of yourself and others can benefit you greatly, and employing strategy in your decision making is easier than usual this year.

There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. You are especially resourceful and determined.

You are, for the most part, optimistic, helpful, and ready to share your wisdom with others. It’s an excellent year for guiding, learning, and sharing. Big picture planning and thinking are in strong focus and quite excellent.

This is a year in which you seek out nourishment and naturally nurture and support others. Needs and cravings are in strong focus, and you’re drawn to those things you feel are more wholesome, healthy, and natural. This can be a year in which you make significant lifestyle improvements and/or positive changes to your home and family life.

Excellent energy is with you for imaginative pursuits. You are more sensitive artistically, your imagination is stirred, and you have an increased appreciation for subtleties. You are inspired and could even inspire others with your words. Some of your hunches could be prophetic. You are thinking more creatively, too.

You’re also quite driven to make improvements and effect positive change in the year ahead. This impacts many areas of your life beyond the personal, including relationships and work.

Certain elements of your social life and financial life are stabilized, secured, and more reliable this year. You may solidify a romantic relationship, enjoy stable energies in an existing partnership, or become involved with a mature partner. Circumstances may be such that you need to handle money more carefully this year, or this may simply come naturally to you now. Support from older people or authority figures may come by way of solid advice or more tangible help. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships, are also highly likely.

This is a year of initiative and energy, and it’s a period of powerful and enterprising ideas. Focusing will be the key to success. You are exploring new things, interests, places, and situations this year, and it becomes you! Do watch for impatience in both your actions and communications, however. You certainly have more courage than usual now, but rushing through things can unnecessarily complicate your life. Creativity blossoms in the period ahead.

 

2018 is a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.

2019 will be a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.

Your Weekly Forecast for October 21 – 27

Weekly Forecast: October 21 – 27, 2018

The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.

*NOTE*  There are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.

Weekly Forecast: October 21 – 26, 2018

10/22 ~ Mercury (communication) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation): 

This energy provokes the need to delve deeper into the ideas or information being presented at this time, whether personal or professional. You will want to dig deeper, ask the hard questions and gather insights that are deeper and more profound than usual. In your professional/public life, you may find yourself doing better due-diligence and in your personal/private life, you may find yourself digging a little deeper into your own mental patterns & personal history (that has led to ‘now’). As you make these connections and begin to grasp these new insights, they will gain traction and you will become more grounded in your own Truth. We all get excited about those kind of ah-ha moments, and you may find yourself wanting to share them with others who may or may not be ready to hear such deep Truths or have the conscious awareness to even process them, so use some discernment around who and when you share these new-found insights.

10/23 ~ Sun (core-identity) ~oppose~ Uranus (disruption):

Be ready for surprises with this energy. Your routine will be disrupted, by you and/or others. Now is not the time to be practical, nor is it time to make any huge decisions. What it is best for is experimenting with alternative modes of expression. A part of you undergoes a mini-transformation under this energy’s influence because it wakes up a part of you that is requiring expression now. You may not recognize it right away, but you have changed! You are a new “you” and it’s time you acknowledged that fact, so everyone else can too.

10/24 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Saturn (responsibility):

This energy has to do with your obligations within the context of relationships. They are not difficult obligations (in this case) but more emphasis is placed on enjoying serving those you love. This is also what I would call the “keep it real” energy, regarding relationships. This energy makes you want to really sit down and define your terms within your relationships (which I am a total advocate of). It’s really hard to grow to the next level when each person is not clear on what the other expects. Of course, this starts with you knowing what you want/don’t want and what you are willing to compromise about so you can articulate that clearly.

10/26 ~ Venus (relationships & resources) ~conjunct~ Sun (source & essential Self):

This activates your innate creativity and gets your wheels turning about what you want to bring to life in the world, what you want to invest in and be a part of. When Sun contacts Venus, the creativity is centered around you, however, here as Venus contacts the Sun, it is all about the creation! Use this Solar infusion to brighten and illuminate your self, your surroundings or your creative projects. This expands your magnetic field and opportunities result. There is a burst of new energy wanting to be expressed through you, and it’s based on your new values and priorities. It is the beginning of a new creative cycle. Love too is a creative force, so if your relationships are more center-stage than your creative projects, then this too lends new potency to what you create with others. Invite or allow support and guidance from men.

10/27 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~sextile~ Saturn (organization & structure):

This energy is good for getting serious and organized because the Sun also brings some much-needed clarity. With Saturn involved, practical actions based on responsible assessments will be rewarded, whereas, blowing things off or leaving loose ends will cost you (usually fairly immediately, the instant karma way). Even if this should happen to you, it is not personal, but Saturn’s way of showing you (immediately) where your current limitations are. That’s good info to have when making choices & decisions. This activation gives you access to self-discipline and the ability to consider all your options before deciding on anything. This is a good time to focus on your professional goals if possible, and start making a solid, feasible plan for the future. If you need to, seek the advice of a trusted wise elder (anyone with more knowledge/experience than you ; -)) And if you can’t actually DO something in the direction of your goals today, take the time to meditate and connect to your plan mentally.

 

 

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for Monday, October 22

An assortment of celestial provocations are once again back on center stage while the sun spends its last full day traveling through relationship-oriented Libra. Five challenging alignments include three solar link-ups — to Chiron (1:23am), Neptune (4:18am), and Uranus (7:15am) — while a Mars-Jupiter parallel (7:37am) and Mercury-Saturn 45-degree clash (6:50pm) add weight to today’s rise in overall tensions. The moon in Aries does support your enhancing leadership credentials across the board. Research projects and in-depth studies are recommended due to a supportive, 60-degree arc between Mercury and Pluto (12:15pm). Since the next full moon will occur on Wednesday, today and tomorrow constitute a 48-hour preparatory time-period for absorbing and transmitting the illuminating spiritual energies about to be released at the forthcoming solar-lunar crescendo.

[Note to readers: All times are now calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

The phase lasts round 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon will rise in the east in mid-afternoon and will be high in the eastern sky at sunset. The moon is then visible though most of the night sky setting a few hour before sunrise.

Remember Rosemary

Sacred to Venus, the Roman goddess whose namesake planet is about to relinquish its astrological ascendancy, rosemary is best known today as an aromatic culinary herb. In Ancient times, however, this evergreen was considered a lucky charm as well as an emblem of loyalty and love and in Hamlet, playwright William Shakespeare has Ophelia saying, “There’s roemary, that’s for remembrance; pray, love, remember.” Its antibacterial, anti-septic qualities have also caused it to be used to ward off and treat a long list of illnesses and ailments over the ages.

Avina Aid

Take this last day of Libra as a cue to consider the winter welfare of the creatures of the air, its element. You could, for instance, erect a bird table, shop for seeds and other types of basil food, or buy a bird bath to fill with water to feed your feathered friends.

On Monday, October 22, We celebrate…

Hi Matsuri (Japan)
IZU NO ME MO KAMI

Themes: Mediation; Health; Cleansing

Symbols: Fire or Water

About Izu no me mo Kami: A goddess of purification, Izu no me mo Kami helps us prepare for the sacred festivals of late fall and early winter with her cleansing power. While she was born in water, this goddess’s energy exists in any rites for purification, including those centered on fire.

To Do Today: This is a fire festival in Japan designed to welcome and help people commune with the native deities who come to earth this day. People carry light sources like candles and torches, which offer Izu no me mo Kami’s purifying energies to the meeting. In this part of the world it is considered unseemly to go before the gods spiritually or physically dirty.

In keeping with this theme, take a ritual bath today before your daily prayers or meditations. Add cleansing herbs like pine needles, bay leaves, fennel, lemon rind. Alternatively, drop in a few herbal tea bags (like peppermint or chamomile) to keep the dried items from clogging the drain. Before getting in, stir the water counterclockwise, saying,

Goddess of cleansing power,
purify me this sacred hour.
Remove all guilt, all blame or shame.
I ask this by invoking your name:
Izu no me mo Kami.

Keep whispering the goddess’s name at regular intervals until you get out of the tub. Then enter your prayers and meditations with a purified mind, heart, and spirit.

Monday: Keep the moon safe from the wolf

Easy to remember – Monday is the Moon Day. The word moon is associated with the Norse god Mona (Máni). He was pulling the moon accross the sky, trying to escape and save it from a mythological wolf. At the end of the world, the wolf will catch them and tear the moon into pieces. This apocalyptic period of the world is called Ragnarok in Norse mythology.

In Romance languages, Monday is also the Moon Day (lunes in Spanish, lundi in French, lunedi in Italian: coming from Latin Dies Lunae).

Monday

Monday is named after the moon. The Latin term for Monday is Dies Lunae (“moon’s day”); in the Old English language, this day was Monandaeg; in Greek, it was Hermera Selenes. All of these different names and languages translate to the same thing: the “day of the moon.”

Working with the different phases of the moon is an important skill that takes a bit of time for Witches to learn. So why not cut to the chase and experiment with the day of the week that is dedicated to the moon in all of its magickal energies and aspects?

Magickally, Monday encourages the lunar energies of inspiration, illusion, prophetic dreams, emotions, psychic abilities, travel, women’s mysteries, and fertility.

Monday’s Witchery = Lunar Magick

Think for a moment on all of the witchery, magick and enchantments that you have discovered. Don’t be afraid to adjust spells to suit your own specific needs. Any gentle, illusory, and dreamy charms and spells can be enhanced when you work on the day of the week that is dedicated to the moon. Mondays are a fantastic day to boost your psychic abilities and to tune in to your intuition and empathy. It also gives you the opportunity to work with a different lunar phase each and every Monday, which means in one month you could work four different types of moon magicks on Mondays. How’s that for adding to your repertoire? You are going to have mad skills in no time at all.

So light up those lunar scented candles and add a little mystique to your outfit by wearing an enchanting lunar color. Wear your sparkling silver jewelry and maybe add a pair of dangling silver earrings or a pendant shaped like a crescent moon. Create lunar potions and philters; make a dream catcher and give it as a gift to someone you love. Burn some sandalwood or jasmine-scented incense today to inspire the glamour and magick of the moon. Slice up a favorite variety of fruit that is in season for a snack or share it with your love and enjoy his or her lunar and romantic qualities. Brew up a cup of chamomile tea, enchant it with a little moon magick, and relax and get a good night’s sleep.

Most importantly, get outside tonight and watch the moon for a while. What phase is she in? What color was the moon as she rose? Why not start a journal and write down at what location the moon rises and sets for a few seasons? This is a great way to teach you to tune in and to become more aware of the moon and the influence that she pulls into our lives. Try calling on Selene for her magickal assistance, and call Thoth for wisdom and strength. Get to know the Norse Mani and the Latvian Meness. These gods of the moon have plenty to teach, and if you allow their influence to cycle through your life, you’ll receive many blessings. Be imaginative, and create your own personal lunar magick and witchery. Go on….the moonlight becomes you.

Moon in Aries

Our pioneering impulses are strong, and we feel energetic, spontaneous, and enthusiastic. We may also be tactless and impulsive now. Excess energy is best channeled into physical activity.

The Moon in Aries generally favors the following activities: Quick actions that yield immediate results. Undertakings that involve the self and the personality. (Staying power may be lacking). Self-assertion, taking on challenges, beginning short-term projects.

FULL MOON MAGIC TO ATTRACT ALL WONDERFUL THINGS

The full moon is expansive, nourishing, and energizing. Performing this spell will channel all that energy toward increasing your luck: your ability to irresistibly attract all wonderful things into your life experience. This includes (but is not limited to) money, love, happiness, and success.

Ingredients:

A red rose
1/4 cup sea salt
A pint-sized mason jar with lid
A clear quartz crystal point, cleansed with sunshine, sage smoke, and/or running water
Cinnamon
Patchouli or vetiver essential oil (or both)
Sunflower oil (from the baking aisle is fine)

 

Draw a warm bath, possibly by candlelight. Add the sea salt and the petals from the rose to the water. Stir with your hand in a clockwise direction until the salt is dissolved. Get into the bath and feel your personal magnetism being activated and enlivened. Imagine that you really and truly are the luckiest and most fortunate person you know. Feel extremely grateful for this, and imagine any conditions you’d like to attract as already being 100% present in your life experience.

 

Dry off and dress in something both comfortable and lovely. Sit comfortably in front of the remaining ingredients. Breathe deeply and center yourself. When you feel ready, place the crystal in the mason jar. Sprinkle it with cinnamon. Add 4-10 drops of essential oil. Cover all of it with the sunflower oil, filling the jar to around 3/4 full. Affix the lid and combine by shaking gently or lightly swirling in a clockwise direction. As you do so, say:

 

Radiant moon of luminous light,
Activate my luck this night.
Awaken me to the blessing each moment brings,
And make me a magnet to wonderful things.

 

Lightly anoint your forehead, throat, heart, and belly with the oil. Repeat the anointing process once per day until the next full moon.

This online workshop will help you hone your magic and manifestation abilities.

Full Moon Spell for Empowering the Energy Centers

This spell is quick and simple. It only requires that you bring your intent and your belief to the spell. It is designed for the first energy center, or chakra, but can be modified to work for the others as well.

Tools:
4 red candles
Matches or a lighter

When: A Friday night on the full moon

Place the four candles at the four cardinal directions. Starting at the north, move clockwise to light the candles. With each candle that you light, imagine your first center as a swirling orb of strong, pulsating energy that imbues your being with sexual charisma and power.

When you have finished lighting the candles, spend a few minutes in the center of your candle Circle, preferably in the lotus position. Inhale deeply several times, then exhale quickly, expelling all the air from your lungs. Pinch your right nostril shut, inhale through the left, and hold for a count of ten. Exhale through the right nostril. Repeat five times and switch sides.

 

As you do this alternate nostril breathing, imagine your first energy center imbued with power.
This spell can be repeated with each of the centers, using the appropriate colors. When you feel comfortable casting spells, you can create your own rhyme for each of the cardinal directions, to say when you light the candles.

MOON WATER TONIC

Tonic waters containing the energies of the moon embody very powerful healing benefits that bring about integral balance and wholeness throughout the body, mind and soul. Clear quartz crystal catalyses the absorption of lunar energies as well as amplifies the healing benefits.

TO PREPARE MOON WATER

Wait for a clear night, preferably on or right before the full moon. Put your crystal in a clear glass and cover with one cup of purified water. Check an almanac for the exact time of sundown on the day you have chosen. At sundown, place the glass out of doors in a moonlit place (cover the glass with clear plastic wrap). Remove the glass at dawn. The water is now filled with lunar potency.

Drink the moon water every morning to prepare your body, mind and spirit for the stress of the day.

A Full Moon Lunar Potion

The power of the Moon can be utilized in many ways. Not sure where to start? Consider trying your hand at some easy to learn, yet challenging to master lunar potion making: you’ll gain a foundation of experience and understanding that will kick start your Moon magick. Here is a basic formula to get you started for the upcoming Full Moon. You can also consider adding herbs, oils or stones to personalize the recipe; just take care to use the potion only externally.

 

Here’s a versatile brew that can be used to create resources and reveal opportunities. Choose a symbol, sigil, or word to represent the thing you wish this potion to manifest. For example, if you want to manifest money, you might decide to use a dollar sign or a pentacle. Paint the symbol on the side of a clear glass jar while imagining the jar filled with the essence of your desire. Fill the jar with water and a handful of soil, then place it outside beneath a Full Moon. Gaze at the Moon and notice its expansive, creative energies. Ask these energies to enter and charge the water.

 

Sit quietly for thirteen minutes while the potion absorbs the moonlight. Swirl the jar clockwise thirteen times while visualizing the thing you wish to manifest, the fulfillment of your magickal goal.

 

Use this potion to charm objects and places related to your goal. For example, if you want to manifest a new car, you might anoint your key ring with a bit of this brew. If greater creativity in your artwork is what you crave, sprinkle a few drops of the potion on your studio or on your art supplies.


Moon Crystal Amulet

You can use any crystal or tumble stone thatyou like for this, go with your intuition and pick one that resonates with you and makes you feel a connection to the Moon.

If possible do this outside under the Moon or in a window where the moonlight shines in. Sprinkle your chosen crystal with salt and then waft it through incense smoke to cleanse and purify it. After that very carefully pass the crystal over a candle flame and finally sprinkle it with Full Moon water.

Charge the crystal with your intent; it might be for protection, strength or courage, using the power of the moonlight.

Carry it with you in a small pouch, pocket or purse
