The week starts off on a quarter waxing moon in stodgy Capricorn. Letting go of any resistance to change is definitely in order to make the most of your opportunities available now. Step up and face any challenges with maturity.

How I read this week’s astro energies essentially shows opportunities to shift your mindset and let go of some old attitudes that have held you back or sabotaged you from realizing your potential and higher possibilities for yourself.

This week is giving your awesome opportunities to implement the mental attitude shifts you became aware that you needed to make in the recent Mercury retrograde cycle.

Smokey Quartz Crystal is the Capricorn power gemstone for you to use at this time. As with all quartz crystals it can be used to amplify and conduct energy.

Its powerful grounding energy helps transmute negative energy. It is also an excellent protection stone. Smokey quartz actively deflects negative energy and mental projections from others, safely redirecting them down into the earth.

Smokey quartz vibrates to the base or root chakra and will help strengthen it. It can be used to ameliorate first chakra issues like loss of sense of belonging, material abundance, security and money issues. Money issues can also be related to 2nd and 3rd chakra issues.

Smokey quartz can help you have a more positive mental attitude, as well as strengthen your physical body.

BEST MONEY DAYS this week are the 10th and 11th though I have to be honest with you this doesn’t look like the best week for direct windfalls of money. Of course what’s going on in your personal chart can impact this general, collective trend. It is a great time for taking action and birthing creative visions for the future that can result in big money payoffs later on.

ricorn-goat-animals-1088374_1920On October 8th we have the first quarter waxing moon in Capricorn. It is at 16º Capricorn and powerfully conjuncts both Mars and Pluto and forms a loose T-square to Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aries.

The quarter waxing moon is also sextile to Neptune which brings creative genius and sparks your imagination. You’re more like to see creative potential when faced with obstacles and not as likely to imagine worst case scenarios when faced with dilemmas requiring resolution.

On October 11th Mercury (the planet of communication) at 7º Libra conjuncts Jupiter (the planet that expands whatever it touches). This a great combo for warm, open hearted communications though watch for exaggeration or being excessive in your communication.

Good fortune comes through this planetary contact and agreements made now are likely to bring good fortune.

On October 11th also Mars at 9º Capricorn sextiles Neptune in Pisces which sparks your imaginative drive and desire to take action on your creative ideas.

On October 13th Mercury at 10º Libra exactly squares Mars in Capricorn. The pair have been steadily moving to perfect an exact square to one another since the Capricorn quarter waxing moon and will peak in intensity from now until  just before the Aries Full Moon on the 15th.

On October 14th Mercury (your mindset) at 12º Libra sextiles Saturn (gives from and structure) in Sagittarius. An opportunity to implement a shift in your mindset comes into form now.

With Mars recent move into the sign of capricorn much can be accomplished now, but you may be required to implement needed mindset shifts. Your attitude has to change.

October 15th 23º Aries Full Moon (represents your deepest emotional needs) is conjunct Uranus (the awakener, planet of unexpected change). More about what this Aries Full Moon is all about and how to make the most of it in your next AER.

These are great periods for taking it easy and going with the flow of events and completing projects. During Void of Course Moons your emotional body is going through a period of processing and integrating your recent experiences. You naturally clear out your emotions during these periods. Doing things that helps with this natural process are especially helpful now, i.e. relaxation, yoga, movement, hot baths with sea salts and essential oils, focused breathing.

Void of Course Moon periods are not good for starting new projects, or launching new ventures, or having meetings (if you want to achieve anything), or signing contracts and making agreements as it’s less likely anything will come of any agreement, or it will be sluggish and slow to start.

For your New and Full Moon Rituals make sure the Moon is not Void of Course and in aspect to another celestial body when doing your ritual for best results.

On October 9th we have a 14 hour Void of Course Moon from 9:51am PT to 11:33pm PT when the Capricorn Moon moves into the sign of Aquarius.

On October 11th we have a 13 hour Void of Course Moon from 3:49pm PT to 5:43am PT when the Aquarius Moon enters the sign of Pisces.

On October 14th we have a little over 8 hour Void of Course Moon from 0:13am PT to 8:08am PT on October 14th when the Pisces Moon enters the sign of Aries.

Well, there you have it. Those are the key Astro Energy Highlights I see happening for you this week.
