Venus becomes retrograde on October 8 (until November 17) between 13º13’ and 4º19’ Scorpio.
5 weeks to recreate the passion in our lives. An intense love affair could return from the past. The flame in an existing relationship could be rekindled. We do not wish to live our emotions at a surface level. We seek the intensity of true love and true passion in every aspect of our lives to feel fully present and happy.
Jupiter continues to be retrograde this whole month (until November 17, 2010) between 27º07’ and 24º05’ Pisces.
The pictures associated with these 4 degrees are respectively: “A fertile garden under the full Moon”, “A harvest Moon illuminates the sky”, “A New Moon reveals that it’s time for people to go ahead with their different projects”, “The purging of the priesthood”. This is an extraordinary month during which we become very aware of our inner powers and total mastery of our own lives. Big organization and corporations gradually reveal their lies and one by one break down because of their corruption.
Uranus continues to be retrograde this whole month (until December 4, 2010) between 28º14’ and 27º11’ Pisces.
The Sabian Symbols symbolize these 2 degrees as follows: “Light breaking into many colors as it passes through a prism” and “A fertile garden under the Full Moon.” The more we free ourselves from the past, old conditionings and outmoded ways of thinking, the more light we are able to hold at a cellular level, allowing us to incarnate our divinity in very beautiful and magical ways.
Neptune continues to be retrograde this whole month (until Nov. 9, 2011) between 26º17’ and 25º55’ Aquarius.
These degrees are symbolized in the Sabian Symbols by “An ancient pottery bowl filled with fresh violets” and “a garage man testing a car’s battery with a hydrometer”. An important time to integrate our spiritual dimension into our daily lives, realize that we are ascending WITH our bodies and that we need to make sure that everything in and around us is in alignment with the beauty and magic of higher frequencies. We need to walk our talk and live fully everything we believe in every aspect of our daily lives. A time to relinquish old fears, outmoded behavior that has kept us in grief or anger, and live in happiness.

Our Intentional Meditation
Our intentional meditation began on September 23
Our intentional meditation began on September 23with the Harvest Full Moon in Aries. On Thursday October 7, take out your Full Moon charged papers and write one positive, concise intention per sheet. Place your papers out to be activated by the New Moon in Libra , making sure they are on a balcony, in a garden or near a window by exactly 11:44 AM. Once that moment has passed, staple your sheets together, write the date and put them away, expecting a miracle!
Our next intentional meditation begins on Friday 10/22.
Take out as many blank sheets as you will have intentions, and place them out (on a balcony, near a window or in a garden) to be charged by the Full Moon in Aries at exactly 6:37 PM. Once that moment has passed, gather your sheets and place them in a folder until the next New Moon in Scorpio on Friday 11/4.
