Here are some highlights for October:
The first week of October starts with Venus and Mars conjoining. On October 3rd they will be… one…OOMMM…. at 12 degrees of Scorpio! Lady Gaga and the stock market watch out!
The Opportunity: This combo arouses strong desires, physical passions, and artistic creativity.
Physical activities from belly dancing to paint ball games are enjoyed. The word Party goes to another dimension.
It is a time for gender change operations, cross dressing or leather fantasies.
If you do Shamanic work or sexual magick, October 1st through 7th is the time to do it, the 3rd being the most optimum time.
Also it is a great time to create a body for a soul to enter; the parents in love and reverence have Divine love/sex honoring the sacred contract they have previously written for the child and each other.
May every child be loved, wanted and planned by kind, wise parents!!!
The Challenge: Obsessions, stalking, revenge, so called honor killings,
covert financial dealings, forced marriages, the drug wars will reach a pinnacle.
The Sun and Saturn are conjoined within 5 degrees the first week of October. Along with what else is happening, the financial sector goes to the next phase of trying to correct the global financial crisis. And after months of overt and covert meetings, the powers that be are putting the finishing touches on their negotiated plan. Will it work? We will see an indicator of what direction the plan takes at the end of this month….last 9 days.
For the big picture; the economic system of the world will continue to falter.
In the USA; single home housing will continue a downward trend as apartment and condo construction increases. Unemployment will be in the double digits this month.
Commodities will increase in popularity.
Jupiter and Uranus are conjoined in last 05 degrees of Pisces all month; having a one degree difference at the start of the month to a three degree at the end.
The Challenge: Religious zealots, financial fluctuations, hurricanes, floods and electrical storms will continue to plaque us. Radical political views will escalate. Protests galore!
The Opportunity: What a good time for new money making ideas! Many wonderful inventions will be traced back to this time. If you are the type that always sees inventions on TV that you thought of months or years before, this is a month for you to get a journal and write down your ideas…. no matter how bizarre they seem.
Start marketing your ideas on October 15th.
Having Jupiter and Uranus conjoined in Pisces along with Venus and Mars conjoined in Scorpio makes for an amazing time of insight.
Truly it is the time of the Phoenix. But is the phoenix rising out of its ashes? This is what I imagine.
The Phoenix says to the Griffin,” Hey pal, do you smell something burning?”
Peace to all!
Remember: Think Globally, Act Locally! Get involved in your local city politics. The change starts with you.

RETREAT: My next Women’s retreat will be the weekend of October 29-31, in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
This is an intimate retreat for 13 women only!
This retreat is a time for women to connect with the Divine Feminine.
It is a time for women to explore their personal power and spirit.
We will create Sacred Ceremony invoking the Great Goddess. We will also learn Spell Work and Candle Magick for manifestation. I only teach White/good Magick.
The veil between the worlds is the thinnest during Samhain/Halloween. We will also honor our ancestors and those who have gone to the other side.
The retreat is located at Salamander Camp which is less than 10 minutes outside of Los Gatos in the Santa Cruz Mountains. You would never know you are near a city.
You will also have the opportunity to participate in arts and crafts, meditation, movement and dance, hiking, chanting, drumming- rattling, Sisterhood, self-care, Magick and quiet time. .
Salamander Camp has three huge yurts; one is the kitchen, one for ceremonial work and one for sleeping (beds and futons).
It has showers, complete kitchen, wood burning stoves for heat, composting toilets, electricity, hot tub, labyrinth, fairy grotto, hiking trails, and two old growth Redwoods.
This retreat is a retreat. You will have lots of time to yourself: to walk in the forest, sit by the stream and mediate, read, journal, hot tub, or whatever your heart desires.
Picture yourself at night, floating in a redwood hot tub, gazing at thousands of stars as you smell the smell of the forest! The only sound is the union of your breath and the breeze. Ah! I am there already!
The price includes all your meals and lodging. The meals are delicious and organic. Please tell me if you have any dietary restrictions so we can make you your own delicious food.
