Overcoming Challenges to Reach an Important Goal is the message of Salmon as our Central Theme this season. Press on, and keep moving forward despite or amidst challenges, delays or setbacks. Divine Supply is all around, providing exactly what you need at the exact time you need it, so why worry? There are infinite solutions to every problem so really, the only block to reaching your goal may be your own pride or self-limiting thoughts. Significant people in your life may try to hold you back or hinder your progress; try to understand where they are coming from, and be willing to meet them halfway. A slight delay or setback may be manifesting for a very good reason, or for your own protection! The challenge to overcoming challenges is to do so with Grace, Agility, and Consideration for all involved, especially consideration for yourself and your own safety.
1st House: Self and Persona
Might be feeling a wee-bit spacy on a personal level, expect a bit of brain fatigue to cause momentary bouts of memory loss, misplacing small items like keys and purchase receipts, or simply forgetting small details in general. The cause however, is not physical but spiritual, as Aurora Borealis suggests that your channels to Higher Realms are connected, activated, and flowing freely. Your Divine Helpers in spirit will be extra-close to you this season, offering not only guidance but protection, as well as a free-flowing stream of ideas, visions, and energetic sensations to boost your Spiritual Awareness a few notches. This means your awareness of the physical plane may be slightly compromised, although a positive side-effect may be that you find yourself a lot less bothered by circumstantial happenings or peripheral drama, knowing that all is well in the hands of the Universe and you're fully protected and prospered no matter what comes your way. Practice Compassion toward self and others, understanding they, at any given time, are personally affected by the same shifting energies and life transitions you are.
1st House ruled by ARIES: Aries, call upon your Divine Guides and Helpers in the Spirit Realm when you need assistance. Human beings will not be so reliable or available this season, leaving you alone to fight your own battles, those of which you started, and which you, yourself must finish.
2nd House: Money and Material Possessions
Spending Money on small but pleasing indulgences is Maroon's message in the 2nd House of Money and Material Possessions, while you'd best be cautious not to get too carried away with episodes of emotional or inebriated spending, if this tends to be a problem for you. Take a look around and notice... are others in your life spending a little too much on alcohol or other sense-activating indulgences? Typically, this time of year is when we loosen our purse-strings and our belts to allow for physical and material indulgences... just try not to go overboard into spending addiction, or the financial hangover will eventually catch up with you and your bank account. Referring back to Aurora Borealis in the 1st House, you may call upon your Divine Guides for assistance with breaking any poor habits related to spending addictions, or spending too much on wine or other sedative substances. Libations aside, be sure to enjoy the smaller things in life if not the finer things, when and wherever you can.
2nd House ruled by TAURUS: Taurus, this season will be relatively low-key for you, moving at your preferred slow pace, and not requiring hurry or worry about anything. Enjoy the finer things in life with a significant other. If you don't have one, invite someone else! Savory pleasures are meant to be shared, while the sharing will bring you closer to a special someone who is already fond of you.
3rd House: Communication
Using your Imagination to enhance Communication is our Mint Green theme for the 3rd House of Communication this season, while Mint Green favors all forms of written Communication, especially inventive or fictional novels, plays, poems, and so forth. You'll find yourself talking (or writing!) more about possibilities than limitations, understanding the Power of the Written Word to manifest tangible elements almost instantly. Dream-journals, wish-lists, love letters, to-do lists, job applications, grant requests, loan applications, publishing submissions, and even song-writing are favored under this season's Mint Green Communication energy. If you find yourself talking frequently about the past, then the past will continue to repeat itself. Mint Green advises you to shift all of your Communications to present- and future-tense, understanding that each passing moment gives you a chance to create a past worth remembering. You may shift your thoughts this way: How would you like your own personal Fairy Tale to read, or be told by others? ...and speak from there. "I would like..." is another good place to start!
3rd House ruled by GEMINI: Gemini, you'll be feeling dreamy this season, pulled under the surface of your own fantasies and daydreams. Be sure not to fall prey to fantasies which have no basis in reality, in other words, try not to act on them, otherwise inadvertently drawing unintended consequences upon yourself.
4th House: House and Home
Stay strong and stay put is the message of Diamond in the 4th House, while couples set to tie the knot may opt to plan an in-house wedding rather than in a church or civil building. Resilience and Steadfastness around the matter of home-ownership in the recent past pays off, as you'll get to live where you want to live, make the changes you want to make, not have to answer the front door if you don't feel like it, and in other words, have complete control over what happens in and around your immediate domestic environment. You have a right to claim Peace in your Happy Household, while Diamond empowers you with the Spiritual Resilience and Fortitude to take necessary measures to ensure your domestic situation is exactly what you want it to be. Have you been wanting to buy a new home? Diamond says "You're Ready!" as the right home will appear at exactly the right time, with a price you can afford. Congratulations, and be excited! Diamond promises all good things around hearth and home, all season long.
4th House ruled by CANCER: Cancer, Marriage is a priority for you this season, and if already married, then your marriage should be your central focus until the season passes. If not married, your central concerns will be material ones, as the Universe is testing your physical resilience and ability to manage material rather than spiritual concerns. A marriage partner may come into the picture for you, and if so, affirm that you are ready to take your relationship to the next level of commitment.
5th House: Creativity, Luck, Leisure
Creativity in line with Soul Purpose is our Cobalt Blue theme for the 5th House of Creativity, Luck, and Leisure, while we might also see a few "surprise" pregnancies occurring here and there, signaling the arrival of a new little Soul onto the earth plane who perhaps decided to come in last-minute. When Cobalt Blue appears, understand that the mysterious workings of life and the Universe are not always in your control, for a larger existential purpose and plan is always unfolding before you. More literally, Creative projects initiated under this ray will have an intensely and personally fulfilling vibe about them, as though through the work of your hands, you suddenly realize your Higher Calling. If you're still on a journey to discover your ultimate Soul Purpose, you'll find your answers during recreational outings and planned leisure time. In matters of Luck, if and when something "Lucky" happens to or around you, know that the Universe has given you the nod to accept such benefits as part of your Soul Purpose.
5th House ruled by LEO: Leo, your Soul Purpose is getting an overhaul this season via downloads of Extra-Terrestrial energies, streaming forth through your subconscious mind as you sleep and dream at night. This intense focus upon yourself and your destiny may be accompanied by subtle feelings of having to walk your path alone. Remember, we all came into this world alone to accomplish an important task, just as we will all go forth from this world alone when our task is complete. Allow important changes to take place within and around you without resistance.
6th House: Health and Habits
Heartburn, anyone? Inflammation in the digestive tract and lower torso may become problematic for those who slack off a bit with their healthy eating regimen or "clean" diet. Be aware: is your heartburn caused by stress or diet? You may be indulging in too many Yang foods, those which are concentrated in protein and give off heat when metabolized by the body. Or, you may be internalizing stress in your central and lower torso which is interfering with the acid/alkaline balance in your digestive tract. Red-Orange asks you to take charge of your daily lifestyle habits by implementing diet, exercise, work, and play routines that work for you, not for someone else. If you are seeking a diet or lifestyle program to improve your overall health, be sure to adhere to a program which is custom-designed for your needs alone. Red-Orange in the 6th House means this season, reaching your optimum health goals is entirely up to you, and you know exactly what you need to do to achieve them.
6th House is ruled by VIRGO: Virgo, it's time for you to step up your game at work, otherwise you'll find yourself either short-changed by the Universe or under constant scrutiny from your boss. Every Virgo needs to be told what to do, otherwise he or she sits and waits for direction which will never come. This season, you must be self-directed at work, otherwise you'll find yourself unemployed. You are replaceable, and you do have formidable competition after all...
7th House: Primary Relationships
Once again a season to maintain intense focus upon what matters most in your primary relationship, Ruby Red in the 7th House encourages you to reduce or eliminate that which hinders relationship progress or weakens your relationship bond with a significant other. Be wary of anger directed at you from a masculine source, and careful that your son's needs do not interfere with the needs of your primary relationship (if you are female, your primary relationship is *not* with your son). If you are currently single, expect alignment to occur with one or more very intense suitors who may be younger than you are. As is the Law of the Universe, Stay Focused on what you wish to accomplish in Relationships and it will manifest. Tune out the nay-sayers, drop the negatives off at the next bus stop, and do what is ultimately right... for you. Some caution here that Ruby Red is a Color of elimination and separation, so we may expect to see divorces and separations initiated by men and young men in particular who wish to sever ties with intolerable or simply self-centered female behavior.
7th House ruled by LIBRA: Libra! A young man will be the central focus of your life this season, and he might not exactly be happy with you, either. If he's angry, back away. If he asks for alone time, give it to him. Also be wary of angry young men causing havoc while out and about in public, and be extra-careful not to put yourself in the way of it!
8th House: Energy Exchange with Others
New Beginnings and a Clean Slate present themselves in matters of Energy Exchange with others, as this house typically encompasses Sexuality and Financial Transactions which involve other people's money. Starting with Sexuality, if you've been praying and working to clear out old, toxic sexual energy accumulated from past encounters (or abuse), you need not wait any longer for Purification to occur because it is already here. Within our sexually uptight culture where, due to the invasive influence of social media, just about any sexual act might be considered taboo, many people have embraced an entirely new form of sexuality in the practice of abstinence. As talk and circumstances of sexual encounters become increasingly antiseptic (due again to the prying eyes of social media), the procreative, animalistic and overtly physical experience of Piscean Age sexuality is slowly giving way to a new, Aquarian Age sexuality which favors an Intellectual rather than Physical connection. In Financial Transactions involving other people's money, you'll see debts either cleared or paid off, tax liabilities forgiven, major purchases initiated such as home and auto loans, and inheritances distributed to family members. On a lesser scale, this house represents Death and Re-Birth, so we see many individuals crossing the threshold of personal Re-Birth into an entirely new relationship, lifestyle, and in many cases, a totally new identity.
8th House is ruled by SCORPIO: Ever the Master/Mistress of Personal Transformation, this season being your Birthday Season means once again, you have been Born Again! Expect to be super-sensitive to impurities in others' intentions and energy fields, especially related to Sex and Money. Strive to keep your own slate clean while making the most of this gift of Re-Birth.
9th House: Spirituality, Legal Matters, Long-Distance Travel
Beige in the 9th House invites you to take a Relaxed, Neutral approach to Spirituality this season, as your approach in the recent past may have you wandering into frustrating, misleading, or simply impractical territory. Are you polarized, tense or too serious about your Spiritual Path, to the point where "Non-Spiritual" people can't bear to be around you? That's right, Beige is encouraging you to Relax, refrain from arguing about what is "right" or "wrong" spiritually, and simply sit in peace and confidence, knowing that your spiritual beliefs are right for you. There's no need to worry endlessly about Salvation, either, for that issue is taken care of as well. In Legal Matters, Beige strongly advises that you take a Neutral approach to any and all legal matters, taking careful steps not to initiate or attempt to defend yourself without Legal Counsel. Someone making legal threats toward you may very well be full of hot air and no legal grounds to stand on whatsoever. Toss the Spiritual and Legal Arguments aside and head for a faraway beach instead. You are here to experience being human... enjoy it while you can.
9th House is ruled by SAGITTARIUS: Sagittarius, how can you be of service to others this season? Perhaps offer to clean a friend's house, help a family member move, volunteer at a local homeless shelter, or simply be helpful with chores and to-do's around the house. You may also take a quiet vacation at a seaside resort, if you wish. Nothing too strenuous, though! Adventures are best set aside until the New Year.
10th House: Career
Finally... grounded and safe in your Career path, you've managed to build a fertile foundation of Career success beneath your feet which supports your lifestyle and values. While you may have pared your Career life down to the bare minimum and/or undergone a few unexpected changes to your career trajectory earlier in the year, Brown in the 10th House means this season is fertile time to Plant Seeds for Career Success for the future. Now, on the flip side of the proverbial coin, you may be feeling stuck in the mud, unable to make changes you originally wanted to make. If this sounds more pertinent to your Career life, remember the Universe is keeping you stuck for a reason. Stay put where you are, commit to pooling energy and resources, and look for opportunities to expand and grow along your current Career path in your current workplace (same applies if you work from home!). "Change" is not the theme when Brown appears, rather sameness and stability are. Having soured out on corporate shenanigans, some will suddenly feel inspired to work from home. As with all Career paths, much pre-planning, soil-tilling, and seed-planting must be done before a home-based enterprise can be achieved as well. Look for results of your efforts to sprout 2 seasons from now, at First Equinox in 2017.
10th House is ruled by CAPRICORN: Feeling a little stuck in the mud, Capricorn? Best to stay put and be a home-body, for now. Chances of pregnancy are very high when Brown appears, so be sure you have room in your abode to welcome a new family member, be it human or not. Your home will be your center of attention this season.
11th House: Community, Groups, Friendships
Moonlighting, leading double-lives, and a few other shady themes of mystery and intrigue around your local community will be prominent this season, as Moonlight in the 11th House indicates not all which is seen is to be believed. Paranormal activity is on the rise as it always is this time of year, when the veil between Heaven and Earth fades to a curtainy wisp. Is that shadow shaped like something? Did you just see someone moving down an empty hallway, or standing in the window of an abandoned building? Be wary of investigating strange places during dark hours, for what you discover there you won't soon be able to forget. Revelation is the theme when Moonlight appears, yet the question is always, "What will you do with the information you discover?" Interpretation is entirely subjective, so what you say you saw may not match what was actually there. Be careful not to share someone's story which you do not have a right to share, especially if you were simply an onlooker, and not directly involved in the happening itself.
11th House is ruled by AQUARIUS: Aquarius, you'll be feeling extra-weepy and emotional this season, perhaps experiencing emotions you have never felt before. The emotional landscape is new territory for you. Just remember, it's o.k. to cry without having a reason to. You are human, after all!
12th House: Subconscious, Psyche, Unseen Influences
Grief and Release, Release of Grief, and Grieving the Release of Grief are the message of Mauve in the 12th house of Subconscious workings and Unseen energies, so expect to encounter a moment here and there when you feel a little sad are aren't sure why. Subconscious workings sometimes have no rational or visible connection to the present moment, so your experience of Grief may be related to something which was lost 20 years ago, all depending on how well you hold in your emotions. All of life is transitory, a constant unfolding of acquisition and loss, beginning and ending, birth and death, so the lesson here is to invest more energy and time into enjoying Present Moment and appreciating loved ones, lovers, and even "strangers" while they are right in front of us, rather than waiting until they're gone to invest in deep grieving as a sign of appreciation for what is no longer tangible. On a more impersonal scale, you may also experience deep waves of Grief for the current state of global affairs, deep divides among human beings both near and far, and a sense of regret that you simply are not able to do more to remedy the cultural illnesses which we face as a human family. If you feel this Grief does not belong to you, allow it to pass as an undercurrent to the joys which surround you, meanwhile being sensitive to others' need for compassion and perhaps space should they be going through a more personal experience of Grief at this time.
12th House is ruled by PISCES: Pisces, Mauve appearing here asks you to prepare for the impending death of a family member or loved one. Loss and Grief are imminent when Mauve appears, best to prepare yourself now rather than regret not knowing later. Lean on friends and other family members for support when needed.
