I bring balance, knowledge, and understanding to all of my endeavors
CHANGE IS COMING—BUT YOUR LIFE CAN MAKE ALL THINGS NEW
As you accept with patience and surrender the difficulties you encounter throughout life on a daily basis, so will you find flowing into you through the Crown Chakra, a light or life-force which will remove all anxiety and pain, making each day a new experience. This comes to each one of us gently, slowly, as we open ourselves from within to the gifts of Spirit. Occasionally you will become aware of a glow within your heart, or of a light feeling, and you will become aware of the harmony which is shaping your life right now through the power of the Divine.
If you direct the right thoughts to those around you, and begin to put the action of the Law of Love in front of any circumstances you may find yourself in. You will find that these troubles and upsets will gradually smooth themselves out. Events will begin to work more harmoniously for you and you will begin to feel, “God is very good to me.” You will begin to realize that within you, as you practice your daily meditations, there is a power building, a feeling of Love, which is helping you actively. This will guide you towards the desired balance of Love, Peace and Harmony within your heart.
This glow within your heart which brings to you such sweet happiness and joy may remain for a few minutes, a few hours, or a few days – and then may disappear. Never fear for slowly this power and gratitude will increase within you. As your life continues, you will experience this renewing energy more often, for you are Ascending up a spiral of light and vibration which will eventually bring you, as a Daughter or Son of God, into the kingdom of eternal light and bliss.
May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.
October brings a difficult time for many, but a beneficial outcome to your endeavors. However, there is a warning not to allow this temporary state to “go to your head.” Watch your Ego so that you do not enrage family members or suffer from anyone’s jealousy. Become a fly on the wall and watch others as you move upward with your own plans, in your own quiet way.
The Sun has entered LIBRA
LIBRA energies bring…Airy Libra is the only Stargazing sign that is not represented by a human or an animal symbol. The scales of justice symbolize the need to balance feminine and masculine principles and reminds us to apply the laws that enable diverse people to mingle amicably. This happy equilibrium can flower only if harmony and tranquility are found and well cultivated. To achieve Librian balance in this autumn cycle, reinforced decisiveness is needed over all other attributes. Try to discover your treasure cove, your place of calmness, of inner serenity and artistic genius, but avoid the shadowy pathways of idle fantisies and superficial dodges from responsibility. Living close to your loved ones, building strong family ties as well as close friendships, will give you peace of mind that an external world cannot guarantee.
The month of October stands out with Mercury, Pluto. and Saturn stationing direct, while Mars begins its retrograde journey. When planets switch gears, major turning points occur in the world as well as in our personal lives. With four planets turning direct, October will be a month to remember.
When a planet changes signs three times in one month, be prepared to make changes, sometimes without warning. Mercury turns direct on Oct, 2nd and moves back into Libra on the 10th, and continues on into Scorpio on the 29th.
Pluto goes direct in Capricorn on Oct. 8th, urging you to diversify investments and increase your income. Saturn moves forward in Aquarius on the 22nd allowing you to outline a plan of action for 2023.
The Sun and Venus enter Scorpio on the 23rd, shining a light on that part of your chart that Scorpio rules.
Mars turns everything upside down when it retrogrades on Oct. 30th in Gemini until Jan. 12th, 2023. Since it will be slowing down all month, it’s a great time to make amends with people you have inadvertently hurt or angered, as this will become more difficult once Mars goes retrograde.
The Full Moon shows where fulfillment lies while the NewMoon section indicates where you can start fresh or begin something new. In October the Full Moon is in Aries on the 9th and the New Moon brings a Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on the 25th. This Full Moon tell you that while you may experience a new beginning in the next 3 months, it could be with a bang and not quietly.

Armor all my boundaries,
Teach me my shields,
Reflect all the hurt,
So I will not yield.
Armadillo wears its armor on its back, its medicine is a part of its body. Its boundaries of safety are a part of its total being. Armadillo can roll into a ball and never be penetrated by enemies.
What a gift it is to set your boundaries so that harmful words or intentions just roll off. Your lesson is in setting up what you are willing to experience. If you do not wish to experience feeling invaded, just call on Armadillo.
A clue to how to proceed is to make a circle on a piece of paper and see it as a medicine shield. In the body of the shield, write all that you desire to have, do, or experience. Perform this ritual before the New Moon on October 10th if you can. Be sure to include all that you love and things that bring you joy. This is called setting a condition. This will set up boundaries for you, and will allow only these chosen experiences to be a part of your life. These boundaries become a shield that wards off all things which are undesirable to you. The shield reflects what you are and what your will is to others on an unconscious level. Outside of the shield you may put what you are willing to experience by invitation only. An example would be a visit by a long lost relative, or criticism from friends, or people asking for handouts.
Armadillo waddles into October’s Libra energies. It is time to define your space. You may have been too willing to allow your home to become a bus station. You may find that you cannot say no, even when you know that you will have to cancel other plans to be obliging. This routine can get old in a hurry!
It may be time to ask yourself the following questions:
- Am I honoring the time I need for my personal enjoyment?
- Do others treat me like a doormat?
- Why do I always get upset when I’m taken for granted?
- Is there a reason for my being a “yes” person?
All of the answers to these questions relate to setting up boundaries. They help to show what you will do and what you won’t do. They show what is comforting and comfortable to you, and what is not. How you react in any circumstance has to do with your ability to become objective and tune into the environment and to others. You cannot be objective if you cannot tell where the other person’s personality stops and where yours begins. If you have set no boundaries, you become a sponge. It will seem as if all of the feelings in a room full of people are yours. Ask yourself if you are really feeling depressed or if this feeling really belongs to the person you are talking to? Then allow Armadillo’s armor to slice in-between, giving you back your sense of self.

RUNE FOR OCTOBER
Communication, A Journey — Union and Reunion
Raido s concerned with communication, with the atunement of something that has two sides, two elements, and with the ultimate reunion that comes at the end of a journey when what is above and what is below unite and become one mind. This journey is the journey of the Soul. Moreover, the approach of that which is realized from innermost sentiment rather than the force of circumstances. A simple prayer for the journey of the Soul is: I will to do Thy will.
Such a simple form of prayer is proper, it seems, on almost any occasion. It is a suitable preamble, in particular, to healing. Raido is another of the Runes in the Cycle of Self-Transformation.
Inner worth matters here, and at such a time we must remember that we are not intended to rely entirely upon our own power, but instead to ask what is right action. Ask through prayer and meditation, through addressing your own knowing, your body and the connection to your Blessed Higher Self knowing, the Witness Self, the Teacher Within. Once you are clear, then you can neutralize your refusal to allow the right course of action to flow through you. Not intent on movement, be content to wait. While you wait, keep on removing your resistances. As the obstructions give way, all remorse arising from trying to make it all happen disappears.
As always, this journey is towards self-healing and unity. This can include nations with nations. The planet and each one of us are concerned here with nothing less than an unobstructed, perfect union. However, this union with Heaven and Earth cannot be forced. Keep within your limits. Regulate any excesses in your life. Material advantages must not weigh heavily on this journey of the self towards the Self.
Trust your own Process — that is the essence of this Rune. Keep on cutting away the illusions. Stand apart from like-minded others. The notion of safety and strength in numbers does not apply at this time. This part of your soul journey cannot be shared. Innermost feeling, spontaneously expressed, is the only right action now. This Rune urges you to undertake your journey, your quest, and if you have already begun, to focus and continue.
This Rune also asks you to be put on notice, particularly with your personal relationships. At this time, ruptures are more likely than reconciliations. Effort will be required on your part. Keep your good humor; whatever happens, how you respond is up to you, and will set the way.
The requirements of your Soul process may totally disrupt what you had intended for yourself this month. Hoped-for outcomes may elude you. Yet, what you may regard as detours, inconveniences, disruptions, blockages and even failures or deaths will actually be re-routing opportunities for you, with union and reunion the only abiding destination.
Don’t be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.
This has always been the section for Healing Requests. Through the power of group prayers, healing take place spontaneously. You can be of help to many others, as well as your loved ones, with one minute of silence at 7:30 pm EST every Sunday evening anywhere in the world. With a prayer for the recovery of health, universal energy is sent out to any and all who send in their prayer request. What is needed is the name and birth date of the ill person, along with a diagnosis, if possible. What are you asking to be lifted? When you place your request in the Healing Circle of Light—located in our Prayer Room; know that as soon as you make your Prayer request and Healing request, you will begin to see positive results!
(We have had thousands of responses.
Keep the Prayers going for all concerned!)
