This is my favourite time of the year as we approach Samhain or the Day of the Dead.
As the trees dress their beautiful autumn colours, they get ready to shed the ‘dead’ weight, dropping their old leaves to turn in and focus on new growth.
This is a time for us to do just that, to start shedding the old and make space for a bright new beginning. But first, we must spend the winter in the dark, doing our inner work and getting our roots strong and our trunks firm and healthy. These months ahead are a time for inner reflection in darkness, resting and nourishing our inner realms. This is the most important work, which is most times overlooked, as while it is happening we cannot see changes in the outside. But trust we must: clearing our outer and inner spaces, setting intentions and allowing moments for idleness… understanding that space has to be given for the inner workings to happen.
We have a full moon coming up for Halloween, on October 31st. This is a blue Hunter’s Moon in Taurus, one of the brightests moons in the year. The sun is in Scorpio and the moon will conjunct Uranus, the planet of the unexpected. This will bring lightening-like flashes of clarity. There is a huge illumination energy this whole week, culminating this Saturday. This is said by astrologers to be the most intense period of 2020. This full moon makes the unconscious become conscious. This is a great period to be spending time in meditation and journaling. Pay attention to your dreams as these may bring things to light.

As time seems to blur during lockdown, discipline and a set routine become paramount in order to stay sane. So I have prepared some new classes for you to stay focused and mobile. Keep reading…
We have a Libra full moon on Tuesday! This moon is called the ‘pink moon’, not because of her actual colour but because of this is the time of the year where nature blossoms. Full moons are times where issues come to the light, times of endings and conclussions and the Libra full moon affects mainly personal and business relationships. This moon comes with a challenging alignment though, a Mars – Uranus square. Mars is the warrior, lord of war and Uranus rules sudden changes, breaking rules and independance – my personal recommendation will be to stay low during this time, away from conflict and rush decisions. The fiery energy of Mars mixed with the sudden breaking energy of Uranus can bring quite strong experiences which we may not want to live through while we are on lockdown!
There are some good news though. Last Saturday we had a Jupiter – Pluto conjunction, one of the major alignments this year as it signals large scale achievements and only happens once every 13 years. Spend this time focusing on your goals as you have Jupiter’s expansive energy and Pluto’s intensity on your side to make something really big happen.
