October Numerology 8-Month in a 7-Year

8-Month in a 7-Year
This is a similar energy to January, and a preview for 2024 (which is an 8-Year). Cycles of power: birth, death, rebirth. Abundance, drive and risk-taking. Feeling “all in” whatever you’re doing. You may have big decisions to make around finances, work and investments. There’s infinite wisdom with the 8-energy. Take a chance on yourself. Roll the dice. Where does the infinity symbol show up for you this month? Look back to February, which was also an 8-7 month for clues and patterns.

Week 1: October 1-8

Monday, October 2nd: Mercury opposite Neptune
Distorted thinking. Wild imaginations. Making subtle adjustments. Pro-tip: Calm the nervous system with an anti-inflammatory diet. You may find yourself sensitive to this energy up to a day in advance.

Tuesday, October 3rd: Mercury trine Pluto
A fact-finding mission to uncover some important information. This is an excellent transit for writing, researching, and exploring new ways of thinking. Look for clues or spiritual signposts of what you need to uncover. Hiring a psychic or private investigator is favored as well. Work with this transit up to a day in advance—and occurs June 11 and October 3.

Wednesday, October 4th: Mars Conjunct South Node / Opposite North Node
Letting go. It’s time to remove lower expectations/plans, and follow a higher path. Something new is right around the corner.

Also October 4th: Mercury enters Libra, October 4 – 22
Mercury in Libra inspires us to change our minds. What would benefit from a new perspective in your life? Notice if anything feels out of balance – does anything need to change? This is a great window of time to do a relationship inventory: which ones are inspiring, which ones are draining, what is it like to be on the other side of you? Let there be peace, let it begin with my mind. Do you want to start a meditation practice?

Friday, October 6th: Last Quarter Moon at 13° Cancer
This is harvest time. Something that started 2.5 years ago, and was propelled into action 1.5 years ago—is now coming to fruition. What is completing now? This Moon marks wisdom, experience, and seasoned perspective. Bills are due—it’s time to pay things off, or invoice for money owed. Can you provide awards or recognition for something that is wrapping up?

Sunday, October 8th: Mars square Pluto
Actions now, get results. Mars and Pluto bring explosive energy that won’t take no for an answer. Watch out for knee-jerk reactions, accidents, old fears, and going to war with yourself. This is a heavier and more intense vibe that may show up as much as a week in advance. Take all safety precautions.

Also October 8th: Venus Enters Virgo, October 8 – November 8

Focus Pocus: the little things count while Venus is in Virgo. When in doubt ask: What feels most caring to you? Your inner child, heart-health, budget, and lovelife need your time, affection, and attention.

Week 2: October 9-15

Tuesday, October 10th: Venus Opposite retrograde Saturn
Ambiguity, detachment, and a case of the “screw-its”. Loyalties questioned. Postpone important life events – this is not an ideal time for communications. Watch out when making appointments – this energy can show up a day early. Know that this too shall pass. You’ll get back in touch with your real feelings soon. Promise.

Wednesday, October 11th: Sun opposite Chiron
Facing what you were meant to overcome. Spiritual Awakening. Address lingering fears, resentments, or worries. What would it take to feel fully alive? Remember this: everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about today. Kindness goes a long way.

Also October 11th: Pluto Direct in Capricorn 
This is a significant change in the patterns of our cultures/societies, and technologies. Pluto was in Capricorn breaking down structures since 2008 and entered Aquarius where it will mostly stay until 2044. Futuristic Discoveries that shape the psyche of humanity will be a key theme for this period. But during retrograde, Pluto tiptoed back into Capricorn earlier this Summer and will re-enter Aquarius on January 21, 2024.

Monday, October 23rd: Sun enters Scorpio

Happy Birthday, Scorpio! We can all tap into our transformative, intuitive, sensual Scorpio vibes through November 22.

Tuesday, October 24th: Sun Trine Saturn

Steady progress. This can be a time when you’re experiencing the benefits of all your hard work—or you can use it to start something that your future self will be proud of. The karma boomerang. Alternative interpretation: building trust with authority figures, and investing in your long term health with things like insurances, wills, and estate planning. 

Saturday, October 28th: Partial Lunar Eclipse; Full Moon at 5°Taurus

Hybrid style eclipse, partly to with the lunation happening in one pair of signs (Taurus/Scorpio) while the Nodes occupy another pair of signs (Aries/Libra)

Eclipse Intention: Love and Light flow to me and through me, gently grounding me.

Coming Unearthed. What treasures are you finding as light is shed on the past? Know this: When we are still, more will be revealed. Make intentions around healthy choices in food, sensuality, and feeling rooted. If you are in a detox process—go slow. Some eclipses feel like the energy of 100 days in 24 hours.

Financial-Illumination. Set intentions around wrapping up anything that no longer serves you, removing any blocks to new beginnings, and removing anything that hinders your confidence and clarity. Under the light of the Full Moon it’s time to face facts, make adjustments, and reflect on what is seen at this time. Do you want to make a bold declaration for yourself? 

Be aware of excess energy—tides are high, blood flow is higher, cycles are breaking, and karmic deadlines are approaching. This can be a good time to find things/people, get a new understanding of hard to treat diagnoses, and present your work to shine in public. 

This phase signifies the illumination of a larger 27-month cycle. Get extra insight on what is culminating wherever 5-10 Taurus  is in your chart. Celebrate your Progress.

Also October 28th: Mars Opposite Jupiter

Big Energy. Is it ‘my way or the highway’ – does it have to be? Do you want to harness this strong energy—and focus it into something positive? Our bodies are not coffins for unexpressed emotions—do you want to walk it out?

Clarity. Decisiveness. Honesty. Practical advice and real solutions for rapid progress. This energy can be felt a day early and occurs October 29 and December 27.
