Monthly Astrological Forecast: Leo

October 2013 Overview

Information Overload
Leo October Horoscope

by Jeff Jawer

You'll spend a lot of time expanding your mind this month, because October starts with the Sun in objective Libra and your 3rd House of Learning. However, gathering information that clashes with what you already know may create as many problems as it solves.

The airy Libra New Moon on October 4 blows in a breeze of fresh ideas that can rock your world. Volatile Uranus's opposition to this lunation and tense squares from probing Pluto and global Jupiter can deliver shocking news, provoke explosive debates and stimulate radical insights. Giving yourself enough time to assimilate this input helps you work out contradictions internally, instead of striking back or reacting hastily.

Trickster Mercury in slow-cooking Scorpio turns retrograde in your 4th House of Roots on October 21, favoring a more contemplative approach to processing data over the next three weeks. Your social life, on the other hand, accelerates with affectionate Venus's move into adventurous Sagittarius and your 5th House of Romance on October 7. Containing your thoughts is one thing, but restraining your heart's desire for fun may be almost impossible with this risk-taking transit.

Mars' move into logical Virgo and your 2nd House of Resources on October 15 reminds you to manage your time, money, and energy more carefully. But you'll find it hard to be prudent when the blazing Aries Full Moon Eclipse on October 18 polarizes your 9th House of Truth and Travel.

While this could signal the cancellation of a trip or a revision of long-standing beliefs and educational plans, Jupiter's overly optimistic square makes it difficult to take a step back. Fortunately, the Sun's shift into your foundational 4th house and emotionally complex Scorpio on October 23 is bound to bring you back to your roots. —Tarot.com

Smudging Away Negative Energy

Smudging with sage (I prefer white sage) is a simple and powerful way in which to remove negative energy from the area. Place a few leaves in a fire proof container or a albacore shell, and light the leaves or light the bundle. The flame should go out in a short time and the sage [Read More...]

We all have intuition. Every single one of us. It doesn’t mean that you have to hang up a flashy ‘Psychic’ sign on your office door, but you can if you want. Intuition comes from within us, around us and from past experiences. It is supposed to teach us what to do and where to [Read More...]
