Descend into the dark stairwell...Must I?
Super Duper October New Moon in Libra Plus Mercury Retrograde Oct 2020
Normally, I do not subscribe to the whole Mercury is in retrograde FREAK out that borderlines on superstitious.
Mercury careens backwards three times a year
for several weeks each time,
so pledging allegiance
to strict ideas
during retrograde periods (i.e: three things to never do in Mercury retrograde, aka BS)
means narrowing your options.
BUT… isn’t there always a but?...
this particular Mercury retrograde combined with the closest super new moon of the year on Friday, October 16th 2020 in Libra
has tickled my
Due to a confluence of cosmic support, that would
bore you to death
if I went into detail,
any interior work you do
during this period (Oct 13- Nov 3rd)
will set the tone for the next two years
but more importantly,
set the tone for December which
kicks off a 200 year cycle.
Oooohhh so many juicy things to talk about! This might be a long post, I will do my best to condense it down.
Mercury is the planet of truth and communication,
and they (I’m using “they/them” pronoun for each planet now vs "he/she")
are moving through
the frozen depths of Scorpio.
Both Mercury & Scorpio want to unearth deep truths.
Scorpio represents your basement. The dungeon. All that is hidden.
parts of ourselves
that feel shameful or unloveable
have been shut down, locked away,
and are deeply feared.
We’ve developed unconscious habits,
that have caused us
Under normal conditions, it would be very scary and difficult
to move closer toward these deep primal fears,
but, this particular
a lot of support
There is a HUGE

in a harmonious way
that has been previously
IF you are committed to traveling down the spiral
staircase into the darkness.
All other senses during this descent will be shut down.
You aren't going to be able to smell, taste, or see.
But you can intuit, listen
for what is right.
There is an energetic window for examining
what is operating in the background of your mind,
who dominates your inner boardroom and has been over-promoted
and how are these forces
your future decisions.
The parts of yourself that
hold you back,
or are repressed
make it IMPOSSIBLE to show up as your full self with others
because you haven’t shown up as your full self
If you CAN'T BE your full self with yourself
if parts of your self are exiled or repressed.
Many of us have been in a battle with
certain parts of ourselves
since we were
These parts of ourselves were likely born as an
attempt to keep us safe
when a need wasn’t met.
Something we desperately needed as a kid didn’t happen
and we found a way to keep ourselves safe,
even if it,
it ended up becoming a determinant to ourselves.
These parts of ourselves
are actually the most vulnerable.
They’ve been ignored, abused, and left alone to figure things out.
The cosmic conditions are such that we can explore this battle safely,
with a new sense of perspective.
We can re-establish
TRUST with these parts.
The power can be rebalanced.
This is a very compelling quest
we heal, empower,
and shine light into right now
will set forward
two years into the future.
Some might even say,
200 years into the future (jupiter and saturn meet in an air sign for the first time in 800 years on Winter Solstice and will kick off a 200 year cycle of meeting in air signs- You can’t make this sh*t up! It’s EXTRAORDINARY stars right now)
All the planets are converging together in
miraculous ways to help
this unique rite of passage.
With the closest super new moon of the year in Libra there is a big chance to
inner critics/punished parts of ourselves
This kind of opportunity will not present itself again
in this lifetime. I am not exaggerating.
The future is coming at us like a high speed train and
we need to do everything possible to catch it.
We need to be alert.
We need to sense into the timing.
Lessen the baggage.
And make a jump.
Your future self is near,
trying to show you the rewards
of the choices
you make right now.
If my words sound earnest,
it is because they are.
The strides we make right now,
have a huge impact.
The rewards, manifestations, abundance and beauty that is
unfolding in the future
is directly related
to what you
trusted and created in yourself today.
