Transformational Astrology – October 2017 

– Henry Seltzer

The astrology of October features Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Pluto, and Eris. This is a very Uranian time. The Virgo New Moon from the last ten days of September closely aspected Uranus with Jupiter opposed. Then, at the time of the Oct 5th Full Moon, a partile Venus-Mars conjunction in Virgo also aspects Uranus, while squaring Saturn. In a Uranian finale for the month of October, the October 19th Libra New Moon is exactly opposite Uranus, to within a few minutes of a degree. What are we to make of all this Uranian emphasis? And what might we expect, beyond “expecting the unexpected.” Uranus is famous for representing deep intuition, a way of knowing that emanates directly from the unconscious, without words even, that can tell you true when all your other sources of information seem confused. One lesson of this time is therefore to trust your gut – and to stay as open as you can to what comes to you from inner realms deep beneath the surface layers of your personality.

Uranus also implies unexpected curve balls and synchronicities that may have the beneficial effect of confirming your inner sense that you live in what is truly a very magical world, everything happening for a reason, or operating on multiple levels. They say that if you can mine the events of your life for symbolic information, just as you would a meaningful novel or movie, that you will not be disappointed in the result. Our task, then, is that while dealing with the outer world of schedules and business agendas we take the time and make the effort to appreciate the wonder of our lives and the opportunities for enhancing our understanding of what is really going on, around us and through us.

In the fist major lunation of the month, the October 5th Aries Full Moon, with Venus and Mars brought together in a partile conjunction, we find that there are different consequences for each Sun Sign, depending on where the conjunction lands in each solar chart. The houses ruled by Venus, and by Mars, will also be affected. There is a strong push for a wide-spread transformation of the activities surrounding these and other sectors of each natal chart. The Sun and Moon at this powerful Libra Full Moon make a T-square to Pluto, and also closely aspect Neptune by partile inconjunct (quincunx) and semi-sextile. All three standard outer planets are therefore emphasized, enhancing the major transformational changes of this decade, on both collective and individual fronts. The time has come to take necessary action, and that means letting go of certain cherished habits that no longer serve you, or the planet. This also implies taking a stand that you know deep within you that you fully support, from the perspective your own unique inner values.

And this is the message of the new planet, Eris, beyond Pluto, representing a spiritual warrior stance in support of soul intention. Eris in the sky remains close to a greatly emphasized Uranus, and is trined by Saturn in Sagittarius, as well as being aspected by Venus, Mars, and Jupiter at the timing of the October 5th Full Moon. We have seen many evidences of strong feminine leadership lately, including the courageous and compassionate stand of Republican senators Susan Collins and John McCain against the tidal wave of party-line pressure to vote in a disastrous health care bill, and of course the recent success of the Wonder Woman movie, whose super hero central character works with the power of love. Each individual including yourself is being called, now, to contribute what you can, when you can, if necessary flying in the face of consensus thought or fashionable opinion, in total alignment with your own unique core values.

The Science of Mastering Sleep

by Sifu Matthew

As a society, we are trained to move forward with fervor: grasp the next idea; improve at rapid paces to achieve; maintain beauty, fitness, and wealth — and compete at all costs. Striving at this rapid continuum can secretly deplete our invaluable body chemical stores and, while we may not be aware of it happening for months and sometimes years, our body and its wisdom will come crashing down and leave us in a stressful and sleepless paradigm, chasing desperate measures to find quick solutions that can damage our systems even more.

THE POWER OF SLEEP

Without proper sleep the body will function poorly on more levels than we can imagine. Improper rest will produce many symptoms ranging from lack of energy that impairs clear thinking, creates mood swings and causes irritability, all the way to auto-immune issues, poor detoxification, and even severe fertility and menstrual imbalances.

ACCUMULATING DAMAGE

While we can run after remedies including prescription medications that can cause great toxicity to our livers and organs, or natural herbs and bio- machines that reregulate inner rhythms for a time period, these fixes alleviate the stress and imbalance at the surface, without truly altering the depth of the stress patterns that created the problem. Without addressing those issues, they will continue to grow and even fortify themselves.Ultimately regaining the power to sleep must come from within–by understanding the miraculous electromagnetic nature of our body’s healing power.

9 Self-Protection Strategies for Empaths and Sensitive People

Combat Toxic Energy and Stop Taking on Other People’s Stress 

By Judith Orloff, MD

Empaths are emotional sponges who absorb other peoples’ stress into their own bodies. As an empath myself I know how exhausting this can be. Here are some basic strategies for empaths and all people battling with low energy from my new book, The Empath’s Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People. I practice these strategies in my life and teach them to my patients and workshop participants— and you can turn to these techniques if you’re absorbing the stress or symptoms of others and you need ways to release them. Experiment. See which ones work best for you. Use them in situations where you are feeling ill or upset and suspect you’re taking on someone else’s physical or emotional distress.

1. Ask yourself, “Is this symptom or emotion mine or someone else’s? 

A tip-off that you’re absorbing someone’s energy is to notice if you experience a sudden change of mood or physical state around that person. Most likely, if you didn’t feel anxious, depressed, exhausted, or sick before, the discomfort is at least partially coming from him or her.

If you move away and the discomfort dissipates, it is definitely not yours! Sometimes, though, the emotion or symptom may be both yours and another person’s. Feelings are catchy, especially if they relate to a hot button issue for you. You are more prone to take on the emotional or physical pain that you haven’t worked out in yourself. The more you heal issues that trigger you, the less likely you’ll be to absorb emotions from others.

Heal Your Heart- Can a gift prevent disease?

by Sherry Klinger

What goes into maintaining a healthy heart? Is it just the physical heart muscle and circulation that matters, or is there an active emotional component? Can the simple act of conveying your best wishes and intentions make a real difference in the health of the recipient’s heart — and even your own?

What does the science say?

These questions are being addressed, some for the first time, by Conscious Inspirations, Inc., the American company which makes Cards&Cloth™ — a new, patent-pending product that features “The Gift of Blessings” — emotionally-powerful tokens of affection and blessings that come in the form of an actual blessing cloth wrapped inside specially-created message cards.

What effect does this kind of “gift of blessings from the heart” have on the receiver, and on the giver?

Dr. Joshua Leichtberg, MD, Internist, states that the act of conveying positive, heartfelt messages to a friend or loved one is good for all concerned. “Giving your genuine best wishes to someone else has a twofold effect,” says Dr. Leichtberg. “The receiver benefits to the extent the salutary message brings comfort and lowers anxiety levels. The fascinating part, though, is the extent to which the giver also benefits. Giving, it seems, is as good as getting… possibly better.”
