NEW MOON: THE MAGICIAN

FULL MOON: 6 OF KNIVES

Happy October, Kittens! This month invites us to journey deeper into self awareness, our life’s purpose and our connection with Spirit. The past few months, as difficult as they’ve been for many of us, have prepared us for this very moment. Summertime’s retrograde clusterf*ck + the eclipse season was one for the books but beneath all of the chaos, we’ve received a precious blessing in disguise. During summer we were given the chance to get very clear about what we want, especially regarding career and life path choices. This introspective time instilled us with the necessary conviction to boldly go forth towards our heart’s desires. Over the past several months, we’ve experienced major heart chakra activations on a collective scale, but this did come at the cost of coming face-to-face with some of our deepest fears and darkest emotions. Summer signified the ending of a cycle in which we were led by the unintegrated parts of our shadow and this autumn represents the new way, and world, that we are being called into at this time.

Carry the great poet, Rumi’s, wisdom with you throughout the month:

“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love.
It will not lead you astray.”  

Your October Moon Magick tips:

NEW MOON IN LIBRA (10/8)

The Magician is here to support you in setting some powerful intentions for this New Moon cycle. Over the course of the next two weeks focus your intentions, candle magick, and rituals on drawing more harmony, beauty and prosperity into your life. Libra season brings our attention to relationships making this a favorable time to reconcile with an old flame, balance out an existing relationship, or even peacefully end that situationship that just isn’t doing it for you anymore. The power is truly in your hands to create the most desirable experience.

This is a time of taking initiative in your life. No more sitting around just wishing and hoping. And don’t think that ritual alone is the sole factor behind your success. Keep in mind that “faith without work is dead.” Your actions must align with the desired experience. In metaphysical terms, you must be a vibrational match for that you wish to attract. This internal work is equally as important as the practical steps that you take towards your goals this month.  

FULL MOON IN TAURUS (10/24)

The 6 of Knives is our invitation to leave it all behind. This is what we’ve prepared for over the past several months. 2018 has been a whirlwind of a year for many––especially for those who are experiencing accelerated energetic upgrades. The Full Moon beckons us to take a more gentle approach to what is usually considered a lively, celebratory time. Venus is retrograde this month making our need for a little solitude that much more necessary.

This Full Moon can finally bring you the closure you need to move on from any psychologically damaging situation or relationship in which you were devalued, manipulated, or abused. Themes of power and control are highlighted during this time and Pluto direct is emphasizing this even more so. Sometimes these power struggles aren’t external but rather our own internal dialogue that disempowers us from living up to our fullest potential. As the moon’s light wanes over the next two weeks, set the intention to banish the voice inside of your head that says, “I can’t.”
