Break Free Your Intuitive Strategy
Vibe: Tight, potent, powerful
October is a lesson in velocity and intensity. It’s going to be fast and it’s going to be fierce.
This month, tensions and intensity build again, asking you to reflect back on all the changes you’ve created since December 2021, thanks to an all-month square off between Saturn and Uranus. Time to break free of the boxes you’ve made for yourself.
Eclipse season begins in October, so be open to added oomph on those quantum breakthroughs. For eclipse season is saying to you, YOU MUST CLEAR THE WAY. It’s definitely about letting go and healing before you leap.
Three planets, Mercury, Saturn and Pluto, change direction to go forward. Any change in direction is always a time of great shifts.
Mars stomps on the brakes at Gemini 25° for weeks on end before shifting gears and going reverse. The fiery planet will also tango with watery Neptune over the course of this cycle – a saving grace if you can stay devoted to your healing and spiritual connection.
Instead of creating stress and breakdowns, this intensity brings to light a primal, passionate, assertive desire to reveal the guidance of your Intuition as a strategic partner in your Work. Intensity has the power to heal. Your healing journey is everblooming, and the deeper you heal, the more magnetic you become.
Luckily, Venus is in her home sign of Libra most of the month, adding some softness to all the brittleness.

In a pinch and want to remember which days are best for which task? Go with the planetary days.
- Sunday (Sun): Create, radiate, source
Do what you love!
- Monday (Moon): Feel, intuit, nourish, care
Define how you want to feel and listen to your intuition to plan your week.
- Tuesday – Mars: Act, motivate, initiate, lead
Take action on your tasks on this productive day.
- Wednesday – Mercury: Think, speak, write, communicate, share info
Get on social, send an informative email, share your voice.
- Thursday – Jupiter: Believe, expand, teach, gratitude, promote
Work on your website, send a press release, and promote your business.
- Friday – Venus: Connect, combine, appreciate, beautify, soften
Focus on money, relationships, beauty and appreciation.
- Saturday – Saturn: Mastery, boundaries, “no”
Take time for yourself to fill your cup.
How to use these cosmic energies:
- These are the collective cosmic energies available to us all.
- There is nothing to be fearful of. Get curious about what we need to learn.
- For larger shifts, you’ll feel the energy a week leading up to and away from.
To personalize energies:
- With conjunctions/meetings or lunar activations, look to the degree of the activation and find where that degree lives on your natal chart.
- Your astrological house in which the degree occurs is where in your business or life more information is available for that cosmic shift.
Saturn Square Uranus
For all of October, Saturn in Aquarius squares off with Uranus in Taurus. I spoke of this theme at the beginning of the year and we are at its peak. Notice where seismic shifts are happening in your life!
Keep Breaking Down Boxes
2021 was imprinted with these two stubborn energies in two stubborn fixed signs.
Saturn represents systems, structures, traditions, priorities, hierarchies and containers.
Uranus represents revolution, awakening, innovation, and shock to a system.
When these two planets square off like this, it’s about dismantling old systems that can’t evolve.
On a personal level in your life and Work, you are not yet done breaking down the boxes you’ve been thrust into by society and culture – the “SYSTEM”.
So many of these structures are ingrained in us, that we forget that they don’t belong to us, nor do they serve us. These systemic beliefs need to be stripped away.
Systemic beliefs such as the idea that you have to look a certain way, lead a certain way, be successful a certain way, or act a certain way in order to be an expert or taken seriously.
These beliefs that keep you working when you’re tired, giving when you have nothing left, perpetuating patriarchal and capitalist strategies as the “norm” even though they leave you feeling icky and empty inside.
No more. Time to break down those boxes and dump them into the recycling bin. We have innovation and sustainability to create in our lives and businesses that serve all, not just the few.
Note in your chart at 18° of Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius). These areas of your life and business want innovation and sustainability.
It’s time to break free.
Especially groundbreaking for Fixed luminaries.

Week of October 1 – 8, 2022
“If we understood the power of our thoughts, we would guard them more closely. If we understood the awesome power of our words, we would prefer silence to almost anything negative. In our thoughts and words, we create our own weaknesses and our own strengths. Our limitations and joys begin in our hearts. We can always replace negative with positive.” – Betty Eadie
This week, Pluto is at a standstill all week on Cap 26°19’ and finally ends its retrograde! It’s been in this position on 26° since August, so pay close attention to the difference you feel with your emotional truths being illuminated. This comes as you also have realizations about the action you’re meant to take in your business and the words you must call into your heart, as well with Mercury retrograde ending. Both of these planets moving forward in the sky again urges you to not shy away from letting transformation take over. Before the retrograde ends, also pay attention to the trine the two planets make, urging you to pay attention closely to how your words have power.

Discernment vs impulse
What will you allow your heart to choose?
While normally lovely planets of luck and abundance, Venus and Jupiter now reveal there is a challenge at play. A decision that needs to be made. Your heart wants to go all in, but your mind is overanalyzing all the ways things might not go as planned. You must make a choice. Choose hope over fear. Your choice will be expansive — be intentional.

Congratulations, you made it! This Mercury Rx, a little out of the ordinary, asked you to decolonize your mindset and thinking.
What do you now see that you need to take action on in the way you relate to others and Work in your business?
You are not out of the clear entirely, Mercury needs to backtrack and won’t leave the shadow zone until October 17.
2Q Moon Capricorn 9°
5:14 PM PT | 8:14 PM ET
Act and focus
What do you need to stop doing in order to take a concentrated effort?
With the moon at the 2Q phase and gaining light, it is time to initiate and take action on your goals and New Moon intentions. No more planning, no more thinking. Time to act. In Capricorn, action comes through focusing on your goals and prioritizing actions. At the same time, Jupiter is stalled, drilling down before moving direct in a few days and reminding you to not overextend yourself with all the things. Focus your action on what you’re good at, your superpowers in your business.
Especially activating for Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn).

Words have power
What can you share that transforms?
A great day to send a vulnerable message that inspires action in your community
It’s a day like today where you have access to deep emotional intelligence and want to share something vulnerable. Now, this isn’t for the sake of click bait or manipulation. Instead, this is about sharing something deep you’ve overcome in your business that connects you to those that may be going through the same thing you’ve worked through. Your ideal customers!
You have the ability to put words to these feelings today and use them to inspire transformation in your community.
Your words have power.
If you have Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Sagittarius, Capricorn) in late degrees, you’ll be able to create your messages with a feeling of support.

Feel into the intensity of transformation
What emotional truths want to come to light?
Today, Pluto stops its shifting of gears and shifts to appear to move forward in the sky again after appearing to go backwards previously. The retrograde is over! Pluto spends about 50% of the year in reverse, and because this dwarf planet is so far removed from us on Earth, its effects are subtle – yet profound.
The week up to and away from this shift is where we will feel the power of Pluto the most intensely. The key to working with Pluto is to dive into the intensity. If you try to avoid the intensity, Pluto will only turn up the heat. Notice what shadows want to come into the light. Befriend these shadows, get to know them, their hurts and work through them. That is how you transform.
The small area between Capricorn 24° and 26° is where Pluto highlighted.
If you have any natal planets or angles in late degrees of Cardinal (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) or Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) signs, you will feel the intensity of your natal energies wanting to transform in your life and Work.

“No matter what your age, or what your circumstances might be, you are special, and you still have something unique to offer. Your life, because of who you are, has meaning.” — Barbara De Angelis
This week, with a full moon in Aries lighting up the sky and Mercury entering Libra again, it is time for you to examine the tension between being your individual self as a leader and finding the people who need that.
Be optimistic about how you can make it easier for the audience you seek, for what you seek is seeking you! Remember to fully embrace who you are and to pay attention to how the boundaries you are setting for yourself help you be the best self you can be. If you seek encouragement, look to how acting and communicating and any sort of action can relieve any tension you may be holding!

Enlightening Your Attuned Leadership
Interpretation co-written with Natalie Miller
This powerful lunation fully illuminates how free you’ve become over the last 18 months, as well as what remains to be loosened, honored, and healed. With retrograde Saturn nearly exactly square retrograde Uranus, you’re touching into What Shifted in 2021, and feeling the last bits that are left to be changed.
This is the deeply healing work of full self-love and self-acceptance, as the Moon conjoins Chiron, and the Sun conjoins Venus. You’re asked to see all the places you’re not allowing yourself to be yourself, and any ways you’re still ignoring or denying your own needs for the convenience of others.
This Full Moon makes clear that people pleasing and self-effacing tendencies have no place in your new paradigm. You’re invited, instead, to decide that you can be an ally rather than a servant, and that it’s easiest to find safe, kindred allies when you are fully yourself.
The first of three Mars/Neptune squares is forming under this lunation. They’re calling you to take a stand for and lend your voice to bigger, visionary causes. To ground and manifest these lofty visions, tap into the action-taking, body-moving impulses that Mars inspires. As you do, you’ll bring into Being the world you’re envisioning.

Second chances in thoughtful relationships
What new perspective do you have?
After a brief stay in its home of Virgo, Mercury joins Venus in Libra to get chatty over relationship building through the shared love of ideas, art, poetry and connection.
Now through November 6, Mercury luxuriates in lovely Libra.
You get a second chance to think and rethink what relationships mean in your Work after this last Mercury Retrograde. What did you discover while rethinking and decolonizing your mindset?

Today you may be feeling expansive and magnetic, but you still have focused energy to work and create. To help you contain this energy, see what you can remove. See how you can create more with less. Aim for mastery instead of all the bells and whistles when it comes to your partnerships and innovations.

Our first of three meet ups of Mars and Neptune, now through March 2023. As Mars explores Gemini, he will pass over this one point three times, asking you to affirm, reaffirm, and realize through your devotion. Likely, you are affirming a mindset or idea with Gemini involved. And you are harnessing your devotion to the Spirit realm to guide you.

Your ideas are big and your thoughts are optimistic. This would be a great day to write down your ideas for your next launch or write up the results and opportunities that open up from working with you for your sales pages. Do your brainstorming and creative work today, but resist the urge to launch your new communications, as you’ll need to refine your ideas a bit in the next day or so.
Write it out!

Where in your business is your loyal dedication being rewarded?
Notice surprise outcomes from commitments in your business relationships or investments. If you’ve been dedicated to some of your business relationships — maybe following up with an interested prospect, or you’ve been focused on attaining a money goal — the timing is ripe for some unexpected results. If you haven’t yet decided to commit to client, relationship or money goals, today could be a great day to make a plan.
Commitment is your key to success.
Especially fruitful for Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius).

“I think that any time of great pain is a time of transformation, a fertile time to plant new seeds.” – Debbie Ford
It’s a big week, October 17 will be a key day to pay attention to as multiple planets come together to soothe the ups and downs of the transformation you’ve been going through and hold tighter to who you are.
Also with a 4Q moon in Cancer and with Mercury opposite Chiron, it’s a time to be self compassionate and give a voice to your wounds. The Sun and Venus will also be trining Mars this week to give you the burst of energy you need to seize the day and take initiative on the transformations of self-love and realization happening (thanks to the Sun squaring Pluto and also conjunction Venus).
Give yourself a pat on the back also as Saturn ends its backwards journey through Aquarius, and social change and the systems of your life restructuring to center community will continue yielding much change!
October 17, 2022
The astrology of the day brings us a healing 4Q moon, Mercury leaving its shadow zone, and an activating Sun trine Mars is your antidote to pricklyness of the rest of the sky. The Moon and Sun form a wonderful t-square with Pluto where your creativity and radiance is the fulcrum to balance out the intense feelings. Mars and Neptune ask you to devote yourself to what you believe in, and Saturn and Uranus ask you to break free of the boxes you build around yourself.

Relax and take care
What deep hurts need releasing today?
A great day to spend with yourself
The last quarter moon phase is an integration phase in our lives and business. A time to cultivate all that we have learned and assess what we want to continue with and what we want to churn back into the earth as nourishment for the seeds we’ve planted.
If your emotions are running high while thinking of the past, ride this wave and do your best to move through. Do not let the emotions take root in your vessel. Sometimes a good cry or scream in a pillow is healing on a day like today.
With the Cancer 4Q Moon, spend some integration time, taking time for self care, family time, or cozy time at home. Self care isn’t a luxury — it’s a necessity you deserve.

There is a flow and grace on a day like today. Opportunities appear and harmony happens EVEN when there are challenges and intensities. Venus and Mars remind you to appreciate what’s good and motivate yourself to work on your ideas, especially during rough times. There is no such thing as pure happiness. Fulfillment is a “this, and.” Appreciating what’s good, while recognizing that life is full of annoyances. Thus, what you love and what you love doing will feel so aligned today. Revel in this ease and show your gratitude.

What lights your heart a-flutter?
Venus is at the heart of the Sun, a rare occurrence like the Venus Retrograde. When Venus and the Sun meet up at the same degree while she moves forward, this is the midway point between two retrograde cycles and the ending of her morning star Warrior Goddess phase, where she fights her oppressors. When you can see Venus in the sky again, she emerges victorious as a Love Goddess evening star, receiving all that is hers. While Venus is in the heart of the Sun, your creativity and values are aligned. Notice what lights your heart on fire.
Are you a morning or evening Venus?
If Venus is clockwise from your Sun (or at an earlier zodiac sign/degree), you’re a Morning Star Venus. Morning Venus is a Warrior Goddess, aiming towards success for her values while fighting her oppressors.
If Venus is positioned counterclockwise from the Sun (or at a later zodiac sign/degree), you’re an Evening Star Venus, who is a receptive Love Goddess attracting and receiving her values and adoration.

Realigned systems for sustainability
What restructured systems do you now have for your offers?
Saturn now changes direction to appear to move forward in the sky today after appearing to go backwards since May 23. During this time, you have been able to get clearer on what in your business has not allowed you to focus on your expertise and authority. You now have clarity on what opportunities and containers that best work for you in delivering your offers and calling in your aligned soul customers. Note what you’ve had to let go of in order to focus on delivering at your highest abilities.
Review the 7° of your chart between Aquarius 6º53′ – 13°31’ where Saturn traced backwards. This is the area of your business where you are being called to focus and master. Now through January 16, 2023, you will rebuild according to this new structure.

“Personal transformation can and does have global effects. As we go, so goes the world, for the world is us. The revolution that will save the world is ultimately a personal one.” — Marianne Williamson
This week, Mars is hanging out on Gemini all week 25° before going retrograde, so pay attention to what energies bubble up for you and your urges to take action.
Mars is also the traditional ruler of Scorpio, the sign of rebirth and transformation, and this week the Sun, newly entering Venus, South Node and Moon energy all touch this sign, with Mercury also entering Scorpio by week’s end. Get ready for some mind blowing healings as all planets make a pass through this sign. Your power will only grow at this time, should you choose to embrace the changes.
Don’t forget we also have an eclipse this week — a new moon in Scorpio means it will be a ripe time to look at what needs healing and what will pave the way for your future in business and life.

Connecting over authenticity and transformation
What powerful connections will you call in?
Now through November 15, Venus graces the powerful sign of Scorpio. For the next few weeks, your feelings and even love life could intensify as your passions may run deep at this time. This could be a wonderful time to deepen relationships and create more intimacy in your life and business. As your passions intensify, be aware that you are clear about your personal motivations. With this much power, it is a balancing act, especially in your relationships. Be sure you trust the people you choose. Meaning, are you connected over shared values? And are they as deeply emotionally connected as you. A mismatch in power and values would not be good for this kind of relationship building.
If you have planets or angles in Scorpio, as Venus graces through, she will share her blessings with your natal energies. Trust yourself to enjoy.

3:36 AM PT | 6:36 AM ET
Season to transform and integrate
What deep healing and trust will you bring forth to empower your business?
Now through November 21, we celebrate Scorpio and the authentic deep power that comes from within. Scorpio’s power comes from trusting yourself, trusting your intuition, and trusting that you are more magnetic the more you trust yourself.
Scorpio can easily turn that trust into shadows of manipulation and secrecy. But in the highest light, Scorpio is about sharing her power and empowering others with authenticity, polarization (after all, we aren’t made for everyone), and deep emotional intuition.
In your business, Scorpio is the ability to uncover truths, create intimacy through trust, and break down all the fluff that keeps us from our pure power. Call on your Scorpio energy to trust yourself, your intuition, to do the deep fixed research and uncover the ultimate authentic truth.
Of course, Scorpio is deeply rooted in healing, and has the ability to hold space for shadow work and counseling. If you work with Scorpio power, expect to feel your pain and shadows as a way to move through them.
During this season, may we all choose transformation, choose to trust our intuition, and choose to face our fears so that we can do the courageous things that move our business forward.
For all the Scorpio Luminaries, the most healing and intimate of solar returns (birthday) to you.

Opening Your Intuitive Channels
Welcome (back) to eclipse season. This New Moon and partial solar eclipse in Scorpio offers a conduit for full openness and profound honesty with your deepest self.
If you’re thinking that sounds really intense, you’re right. Scorpio season wouldn’t have it any other way.
So, dive in. You’re invited to see where you haven’t always been honest with yourself. You’re asked to sort through and heal your trust issues. You’re being shown clearly that whatever past experiences haven’t been fully healed are pulling the strings when it comes to your relationships with money, intimacy, and power . . . and it’s time for that to end.
Fortunately, Venus conjoins the Sun and Moon, bringing sweetness and love to this deep-dive into your shadowiest selves. Intimacy with your intuition is possible here, and helps you to create a safe space for attending to the places you’re ready to stop hurting and start healing, stop second-guessing and start trusting. With Mercury in Libra trining Mars in Gemini, you’re invited to courageously share what you’re discovering. New possibilities open when YOU open, and share a past fear, challenge, anxiety, or anger.
You already know: in order to fully step into your power, you have to trust yourself and your intuition completely. All your parts, even/especially the shadowy ones, are welcome: gather, heal, and love them.

What deep inner dialogue wants to be shed light on?
A great day for inner blocks to be revealed.
This fleeting energy is revealing and intense. Deep emotions may come forth — a hidden gift if you are ready to understand how to use this energy. Pluto has the ability to dredge up what we try to hide, and Mercury enables us to express these hidden truths in a way that brings the unconscious to the conscious. Notice what people may say to you that triggers deep emotions. There is no need to take offense to outside communications, as they are the key to give you insight as to what needs to be revealed.
If you’ve been working on mindset issues in your business, you may get the insight you need to uncover what it is that is truly holding you back from initiating your intentions. Be aware that we are all feeling this energy, so be kind to yourself and others. We are all uncovering something.

Now for only 3 weeks, Mercury is stepping on the gas and speeding through the zodiac. Trust your acquired spidey sense. You know how things really mess up when you’re not listening or understanding your intuition. Pay attention to how your intuition communicates to you. Sounds? Pictures? Pure downloads? Get familiar with its language and learn to trust it so you can superpower your business and save yourself from all those red flags. We are on our first steps in the march to an Intuition Revolution. Take your intuition out of the closet, put it on and don’t look back!

Mars Retrograde begins! It’s time to look at your words and see how you can rearrange them to get your meaning across better than ever, especially during conflict.
With a 2Q Aquarius moon as well, and the major aspects this week being in air signs, never lose sight of the changemaking effects that a flexible mindset can do for you.

Reenergize Your Words
Mars represents your physical energy, vitality, initiative and leadership. It’s your ability to motivate and get things done. In Gemini, the energy can be scattered and erratic, but there is a drive to call yourself and others into action through your words.
As a personal planet, Mars only appears to go in reverse every 26 months for about 2 – 2.5 months. That’s about 9% of his entire orbit. The last time Mars was in retrograde was Sept – Nov 2020.
And as a personal planet, we do feel his retrograde cycle intimately on a personal level in our lives and Work.
When Mars is in retrograde you get to:
- Review your energy
- Reaffirm your motivation
- Restrain energy leaks
- Re-manage your anxiety/stress
In Gemini, this review is for how you use your voice, your message and your dialogue skills to take action, stand up for what’s right, and activate your people over a shared idea and the ideals of spiritual entrepreneurship and Work. Use this time to refine your energy and your message for maximum impact.
During a Mars Rx, it’s a good time to work on your energy, anxiety, frustrations and fears. Find where you are using too much energy or where you need to reallocate your fuel. Reexamining what brings you ease vs. frustration and see what adjustments you need to make in your messaging.

Act and break free
What changemaking action can you take to heal?
This Aquarius moon is activated with the Scorpio quartet of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and the south node. It is no ordinary first quarter moon!
With the moon at the 2Q phase and gaining light, it is time to initiate and take action on your goals and New Moon intentions. No more planning, no more thinking. Time to act. In Aquarius, action is through making waves, innovating, making change for the future and thinking about the call to action. But you’ve been sitting on effecting change in the world even though you’ve heard the call. Alas, change can’t happen until you commit to changing yourself through healing your power. To heal power is to make yourself vulnerable. Tap in and calm your nervous system and do one revolutionary thing to let go, be vulnerable and heal your innermost power.
Especially activating for Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius).
