31st October Halloween


The movement of the planets herald time when we feel mood changes, times we are galvanized to take action, and others times when we lack energy. There are shifts in feelings and energy levels at all New and Full Moons, when planets move into signs, or when there are connections (aspects) between planets, or when they turn retrograde or move direct again.

Pay attention to the days when these shifts happen and notice your feelings and energy levels. This understanding will enhance your experience of life. Enjoy the ride!


For all you night owls

As the Sun sets Mercury will make a brief appearance on the western horizon although he will become easier to see later in the month.

Mars is visible on the western horizon but he is darn hard to spot. Let the moon be your guide as she will be next to his reddish glow on the 18th Oct.

The Scorpion will be diving head first into the western horizon seemingly chasing Mars. They will both be gone by the time we will be seeking our beds. And by the end of the month they will be gone by the time kids will (or should) be in their beds.

The Southern Cross is visible all through the night and will be very low and upside down, and as you expect, it will be on the southern horizon.


For all you early birds

Venus is low on the horizon and Jupiter is high overhead.

Venus is close to Regulus at the start of the month but moves steadily away during the month. She may be hard to see in the brightening dawn sky.

Jupiter is between the horns of Taurus, and slightly lower to his left is the Pleiades and slightly higher to his left is Aldebaran, the eye of the Bull.

Let the Moon be your guide as she will be next to Jupiter on the 6th and next to Venus on the 13th.

Your Sun Sign Forecast October 2012

Aries 20 March – 19 April

Beware of reacting to news, or perhaps legal advice, as it may be given in haste or it is plain old-fashioned wrong!  There are so many layers to what is going on you may never get to the truth. There is better news in regards to your beloved, new friends, new lovers, or even old ones!  So kick up your heels and enjoy yourself. 

Taurus 20 April – 20 May

A party is in the air. Relax and have fun, for soon relationships of any kind will enter deep waters. If they are superficial they will go through a tense and difficult time. If you let yourself go and surrender to the soul connection, then magic is possible. But only if you can be truly who you are, and by being openly honest. 

Gemini 21 May – 20 June

Sometimes things must slow down. It’s been a frantic pace for you but this is a perfect time to take the opportunity to simply breathe and rest. But not so with your loved ones who are in action mode and may even become feisty. Concentrate on what must be done without taking on an extra load. Spend time at home. 

Cancer 21 June – 21 July

The ability to be stern and disciplined, but loving and warm at the same time is called “tough love”. If you have been far too soft, then you really need to toughen up or be eaten alive. And its kids or young people who will press your buttons and force you to be stronger.  A party or celebration can help set new rules.

Leo 22 July – 22 Aug

There is a great chance to save some money this month, so don’t waste it when it comes you way. Somebody at home or a family member does not know things they should know, or they are not telling you everything. Or what’s worse is maybe they don’t know that they don’t know it! Expect confusion and you will not be disappointed. 

Virgo 23 Aug – 22 Sep

Lucky you! Venus enters your sign and gives you an aura of confidence and enthusiasm. It is amazing how this magnetic energy can bring success. Take your time with any decisions for as they say, “act in haste, repent at leisure”. Work issues may appear to go backwards but it will continue to improve in the long-term.

Libra 23 Sep – 22 Oct

This is a month to be very careful and protect your money and your treasured valuables. This means either having a lock or insurance or by just being observant. On the other hand this is a great month to initiate new plans and start something new. So create a wish list of your dreams, and take the action needed to make it happen.

Scorpio 23 Oct – 21 Nov

You want to speak but you must guard you tongue. Be succinct as a few words are all that is needed. And you have the ability to concentrate deeply and to come straight to the point of any matter under discussion. Others may see you as being reserved. Your outlook may be so practical that you become gloomy.

Sagittarius 22 Nov – 20 Dec

Great things happening at work. Send in your resume; ask for a raise, or a day off. And with Mars moving into Sagittarius your energy levels will be high and you will have the need for action. If you sit around being listless you will become argumentative. If you get up and do something stimulating, or exercise; you will be happy.

Capricorn 21 Dec – 19 Jan

This is a great month to travel or study. As long as you are learning or seeing something new you will be content. A friend can be harsh and your lack of reactions will surprise you. Now is not the time. Instead focus on work and set yourself a short-term goal as this will lead to long-term benefits.

Aquarius 20 Jan – 17 Feb

Something hidden is happening at work, paid or otherwise.  Things are going on behind the scenes and nobody is saying anything. This is a time to knuckle down and work hard and try and do as they say; “head down, bum up and keep your nose clean”. Plodding is not your strong point, but persevere and stay the distance.

Pisces 18 Feb – 19 March

This a nice lovey-dovey month. You will delight in being with people, and they with you. So go out and have fun, you may meet somebody special. You can also easily study or do paper work that normally would take you months. But double-check any travel plans as things could go wrong or be mislaid.

For your personal forecast, call me.

A lot of people do not realise that the Sun moves into the 12 signs of the zodiac on slightly different dates each year. If you are born close to the border of two signs then you are on the cusp and you are a blend of the two sun signs. The dates here are the 2012 Sun Ingress dates for Australia. Source is Solar Fire.

Lunar Timing – The Natural Rhythm of the Moon October 1, 2012

Time it with the Moon!


The phases of the Moon are a metaphor for the phases of our life.

The New Moon is the beginning of a time of expansion and a time to think about all new beginnings, new projects, ideas, activities. This isn’t necessarily a time for action though, rather

a time of rest and reflection, focus and planning.


When you see the crescent moon its time for action! Begin the work & implement the ideas & projects you have been planning. The closer it comes to the Full Moon the stronger we will feel the push to try a little harder and go beyond our expectations. Vitality is nearly at its peak and creativity is heightened.


The Full Moon presents us with the completion and full realisation of what we have achieved or what has happened. It provides clarity, thus we can feel complete and fulfilled, (or we can feel

frustrated and thwarted). The Full Moon is also a time when we are alert to our inner wisdom and can feel a heightened sense of emotions. So without any judgment and with complete

acceptance, give thanks for who you were, who you are, and who you will be.


As the Moon shrinks in visible size the second half of the Moon phase begins. And the energy within us, as with the energy within the plants, is retreating to our core. This evokes a sense of

letting go, of release, and a process of moving away from situations that we have outgrown. It is perfect for working strongly on releasing ourselves from various addictions and difficulties. A time for cleaning diets or cleaning routines, as well as a great time to get your hair cut! It is also a time for learning how to let go. To allow the natural breakdown to occur so that rebirth

and transformation of ideas and feelings can begin again at the Next New Moon.
