dark upon dark,
shadows in the night.
umbra unraveling stitches,
new moon with a twist.
What is fraying,
Ripe harvest heart fruit
reveals the inside out.
Stand at the edge,
open the door
to your sparkling essence.
Who or what has the power?
Shed the seductive spell of addiction.
Be awake with your power.
Romance your sacred secrets.
Be awake with your precious life.

Eclipses dredge the past, wrinkle the present,
dazzle and disrupt consensus reality.
The eclipse is exactly conjunct Venus, note where 2° Scorpio falls in your natal chart. This is a significant time for financial affairs, relationships, diplomacy and cooperation. Be aware of strategy and manipulation. Harmonious negotiation is key.
Choose the seeds of your conscious intentions.
Previous eclipses that are a part of this Solar eclipse cycle (Saros Series 6 South) occurred in October 2004 and October 1986.
While the eclipse portal is wide open, Mars is nearly at a standstill at 25+° Gemini and stations retrograde on October 30 (until January 12, 2023). All in all, Mars is in Gemini for 7 months! Consider where Gemini is in your natal chart… be aware of will, motivation and a flurry of activity.
Synchronistic opportunities with unclear choices. Impulsive actions, frazzled, misdirected, convoluted errands. Doublespeak fired up. Hot-headed arguments. Gossip. Lost and found.
Flying into the wind.
It’s treacherous, what can we do? Practice patience. Think calmly before speaking and speak with kindness. Cut out the multi-tasking and pay extra attention while driving. During this Mars cycle we can see (more than ever) how distractions pull us in a gazillion directions and waste time. We each have the opportunity to recognize the pitfalls and reclaim the sanctity of our own thoughts and how we express them. Ah, patience…
Kindness and patience.
It is complicated – a convergence of planetary comings and goings as the tide of the subconscious rises during the cross-quarter season of Halloween, Samhain, Day of the Dead, All Hallows Eve – whatever way you acknowledge this powerful passage…the veil is thin and thinner. Mark the time to call to your ancestors for their wisdom and strength.
There is magic betwixt and between the complexities.
