As they often did Snowy Owl and Shooting Star went to visit the Shaman’s Cave before the ceremony for the New Moon. He said to them “In the far away time the kingdom of the two leggeds is in great distress. Therefore all of the Earth Mother’s kingdoms are out of balance. For the next three Moon cycles there is the opportunity to heal the darkness and step into the Light for all humans and when they choose that all will come back into wholeness and harmony. Go now and listen to Sister Moon’s message.”
When the sisters reached the Star Temple Grandfather Sun had already risen in the east so they knew that was where the message from Sister Moon would come from. The East Direction on the Medicine Wheel was the place of awakening and inspired new beginnings. As they settled in the center of the Sacred Circle they heard Sister Moon’s soothing voice.
“At this Lunation there are three Starry Ones who have messages to share. The first is Ras Alhague. His message is when the two leggeds, in the far away time, heal their hearts they will also heal their spirits and peace and harmony will be the result. The next message is from Spica. She reminds all humans that they have a special spiritual gift to share for the good of all but can only do that when their hearts are healed. The third Starry One is Arcturus. His message for the two leggeds is to heal the heart and become wayshowers for others. Then the spirit that is at the heart center will be the guide.”
Snowy Owl and Shooting Star thanked Sister Moon and the Starry Ones for the messages. They both felt a deep healing within and their spirits come fully alive.
This Libra New Moon is about healing the heart. When our hearts are broken our spirit is too. Libra is the relationship sign but on a larger scale is the peacemaker and mediator seeking balance and harmony. This New Moon asks us to find that balance within and we will become peacemakers in All Our Relations.
The ruler of this New Moon at 22 Libra 32 is Venus. She is in Virgo (mind, body, spirit healing) at this Lunation and working in harmony with Mercury in Scorpio (transforming our thoughts and perceptions). But she is in a square aspect (finding new ways of doing things) with Jupiter in Gemini (trying to go in too many different directions). Venus is asking us to focus on our own healing so our spirits can be free to be the wayshowers for others.
The Soul Centered ruler is Uranus in Aries (personal freedom) working in harmony with Mars in Sagittarius (spiritual action) and Juno in Sagittarius (spiritual partnership). The theme of this Moon cycle is to heal the heart and allow our spirit to live in peace, harmony, and balance. When we can do that the Earth Mother and all her kingdoms will become whole again.
This is the Falling Leaves and Ducks Fly Moon Time with Crow, universal law, balance, and justice for all, and Raven, the magic of the mysteries, as our Animal Totem guides. They teach us how to shape shift our lives so our spirits can be free. The Clan Mother for this Libra New Moon is Weaves The Web. (The 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams). She is the Guardian of the Creative Force and working with the truth. She helps you recognize what you want to create, encourages the decision to create, and guides you as you take the necessary action to give birth to your vision and shape shift your life. This is particularly true connected to your relationship vision. Weaves The Web is the Keeper of the Eternal Flame of Love. When the heart is healed your Divine Light shines.
Libra is part of the Tarot Constellation of The High Priestess, Balanced Judgment Through Intuitive Awareness. The other energies that operate on this Constellation are Pluto, releasing judgment and embracing transformation, and the Moon, releasing emotional drama and embracing spiritual wisdom. Libra is expressed on the Third Ray, of Divine Mind and Active Intelligence, with Archangels Chamuel, healing through Divine Love, and Charity, self love and gratitude, guiding us. The message is be grateful for all your relationship experiences, even the difficult ones, for they make you stronger and allow you to be in your true power.
Libra has been described as the Zodiac sign of balance. Actually it represents the need to be aware when the scales are tipped too far in one direction and requires an adjustment so integration and harmony can be restored. The focus of this Libra New Moon is to heal your heart and free your spirit so you can give your special gift to the world.
Our next Moon circle is on Sunday Oct 21 at The Rising Sun in Richmond Hill from 2.00 to 3.30pm. Cost is 20.00 cash or cheque (made payable to Dale Osadchuk). The Sun enters Scorpio on Oct 22 and will meet with Saturn on the 25th. This is an important connection as the Sun symbolizes our creative vision and Saturn the foundation that supports us. Snake Medicine is very strong with this conjunction. Our meditation will guide us to what we are ready to heal and release so we are not carrying what no longer serves us into the long Saturn in Scorpio journey that lasts until September 2015.
We will also share information about the coming Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius/Scorpio Nov 06 to 26 and the Scorpio Super New Moon Eclipse of Nov 13. As you can see the sign of Scorpio is very influential at this timing and asks us to release what no longer serves us so we can experience transformation and re-birth.
If you cannot attend in person the session is taped and sent via e-mail. Cost is the same. For more details contact Dale at email@example.com
Here are the Moon phases and planetary activations. All times are 75 west longitude EDT. We have included the day and time the Moon changes signs. These planetary activations are also posted every few days on Dale’s Facebook Timeline.
Mars in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries- Oct 15- 6.33am EDT- This is breakthrough activation if you have been focused on your spiritual vision and healing. What a gift as we welcome the relationship New Moon.
Libra New Moon- Oct 15- 8.03am EDT- This is the Ducks Fly and Falling Leaves Moon Time. We now enter the New Moon cycle of healing relationship to self and others. Libra’s theme is seeking balance and that allows us to experience peace and harmony in all aspects of our life. Crow, justice and fairness for all, and Raven, magic and the mysteries, guide us. Let these shape shifters help you transform All Your Relations for this Moon cycle.
Moon enters Scorpio- Oct 15- 8.06pm EDT- trine Neptune in Pisces- 8.59pm EDT- conjunct Saturn in Scorpio- 10.04pm EDT- These aspects support deep healing. The moon in Scorpio is working with Snake Medicine, shedding the old. Do not be afraid to go there. When you do you will set yourself free. The Sacred Animal for Scorpio is the Phoenix, to rise from the ashes and be re-born.
Mercury in Scorpio sextile Venus in Virgo- Oct 16- 8.31am EDT- This is a harmonious aspect offering healing energy for relationship issues which can lead to transformation and release. We say “can” because it totally depends if you are responsive to the opportunity. This aspect also influences creative projects you are wanting to manifest. Scorpio is intense and requires being honest with yourself about where your mind is focused. Mercury in Scorpio inconjunct Jupiter in Gemini- 6.36pm EDT- Venus in Virgo square Jupiter in Gemini- 7.34pm EDT-Be prepared for some blocks regarding moving forward especially if you were choosing “not” to work with the harmonious energy earlier. This also affects any creative endeavors you are involved in. Inconjuncts create confusion and squares ask you to find new ways to do things. Moon in Scorpio inconjunct Jupiter in Gemini- 10.03pm EDT- This aspect continues the theme of confusion about moving forward. But there is an energy shift coming shortly. Moon in Scorpio sextile Venus in Virgo- 10.16pm EDT- conjunct Mercury in Scorpio- 10.23pm EDT- The way is now clear to move forward if you did the work earlier today. Just remember Scorpio asks you to let go of what is not important to make space for what is.
Moon enters Sagittarius- Oct 17- 8.26pm EDT- square Neptune in Pisces- 9.16pm EDT- The Moon in Sagittarius asks you to focus on expansion and growth of your spiritual vision and move toward manifestation of that vision. If you are in your truth you will be supported. If not the square to Neptune will help you see what is not true and what can never be. Neptune is illusion or illumination. Sagittarius is spiritual truth or dogma.
Sagittarius Crescent Moon- Oct 18- 1.56pm EDT to Oct 21- 11.33pm EDT- This is the expansion, growth, and opportunity phase and continues yesterdays’ theme. Often the Crescent phase creates struggle if you are not being true to yourself. Remember we are in the Moon cycle of healing relationship and the most important relationship is to your true self. Moon in Sagittarius opposite Jupiter in Gemini- 10.32pm EDT- This is a tug of war aspect if you are at war within. Use this opposition to integrate your logical thinking with your intuitive guidance and you will experience inner peace and harmony. Jupiter is the planet of luck and blessings so be open to the gift.
Mercury enters his retrograde shadow- Oct 18-We have not calculated the exact time Mercury enters his retrograde shadow but it does occur today. The planet of the mind is still in Scorpio, (identifying what we want to release) but will enter Sagittarius (truth or dogma) on Oct 29 at 2.18am EDT. Our focus will then be trying to identify what we really believe. Mercury retrogrades (backwards motion) on Nov 06, which is Election Day in the US. Remember this Mercury Rx emphasises truth or dogma. It will be interesting to see the effect the messenger’s backward journey has on the vote. The last time Mercury was retrograde on Election Day was the year 2000 and he did have an impact then so we will just have to wait and see what transpires this time.
Mercury Rx re-enters Scorpio on Nov 14 (getting ready to release what no longer serves us) and moves in direct motion on Nov 26 at 5.48pm EST. He re-enters Sagittarius (truth or dogma) on Dec 10 at 8.40pm EST and clears his retrograde shadow on Dec 14.
Make sure you do not begin anything new during the retrograde as it is advised you revise, re-evaluate, re-adjust, and review where your focus is. And as always when Mercury is in his retrograde period be very aware of your thoughts and projections. When driving this is particularly important as accidents increase when Mercury is retrograde. He rules travel by automobile.
Moon in Sagittarius square Venus in Virgo- Oct 19- 3.15am EDT- This aspect can create some conflict in relationship if you are trying to “be right”. Let things go until later today when the energy is more harmonious. Moon in Sagittarius sextile Sun in Libra- 4.27pm EDT- Whatever manifested with the square to Venus can now be resolved harmoniously. Aren’t you glad you waited? This is a blessing for relationship if you are choosing harmony instead of conflict. Moon enters Capricorn- 9.41pm EDT- sextile Neptune in Pisces- 10.31pm EDT- While the Moon is in Capricorn focus on your spiritual vision and Soul Purpose work that was activated on Oct 17. Identify what feels right and integrate that into your beingness. Let Snow Goose guide you as you follow your vision. The sextile to Neptune gives you access to the Teachers and Guides who are working with you. Archangel Michael, spiritual destiny guide, is a very strong influence for the next two days (Oct 20 and 21) as the Moon continues her Capricorn journey. She is the only energy interacting with the other planets during this time.
Capricorn First Quarter Moon- Oct 21- 11.32pm EDT to Oct 25- 4.19pm EDT- This is the make a decision, take action, and breakthrough or breakfree phase. It is like a double whammy for Capricorn is a Fourth Quarter sign and asks before you leap off the cliff make sure it is where your Soul wants to go. It is always advisable to walk toward what you want instead of trying to get away from what you don’t want. A very wise woman once said to me “you take yourself wherever you go”.
Moon enters Aquarius- Oct 22- 1.02am EDT- The Moon in the sign of friends asks you to surround yourself with people of like mind who support your journey as you do theirs. We are still in the Moon cycle of seeking balance and harmony within. Moon in Aquarius Square Saturn in Scorpio- 4.30am EDT- This aspect is simply asking you to let go of limitation and restriction so you can give your gift to the Universe. Moon in Aquarius sextile Uranus in Aries- 11.00am EDT- Whatever came up at the Moon/Saturn square can now be released. Aquarius and Aries both emphasize individual breakthrough and personal freedom. If you are free within you are free anywhere.
Sun enters Scorpio- Oct 22- 8.14pm EDT to Nov 21- 4.50pm EST- In the northern hemisphere we enter the Freeze Up Time when the Sun enters Scorpio. The frost has come and the Plant People and Standing Ones have gone to sleep. Darkness is the dominant force. In the southern hemisphere it is the Growing Time when those same kingdoms are coming alive again. Day is becoming stronger. But for both hemispheres the Sun is still in Scorpio asking us to release what no longer serves us, focus on healing, transformation, and re-birth. Wherever you live this is the time of intensity and deep healing. The Animal Totem who guides us all is Snake, shedding the old. The Sacred Guide is the Phoenix, rising from the ashes to be reborn. Moon in Aquarius sextile Mars in Sagittarius- 9.16pm EDT- This aspect is supporting us to take action and release old patterns that are blocks to living our Spiritual Vision and Soul Purpose. Let your inner knowing guide you as you let go.
Moon in Aquarius trine Jupiter in Gemini- Oct 23- 5.06am EDT- Sun in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces- 7.15am EDT- These two aspects continue the theme of the Moon/Mars sextile from yesterday. You are being supported by the planetary dance to set yourself free. Moon in Aquarius inconjunct Venus in Virgo- 9.02pm EDT- square Mercury in Scorpio- 9.27pm EDT- If you are still stuck in old patterns these aspects will emphasize the need to release old ways of doing and being. You may not be able to see “the forest for the trees” tonight. Wait until the Moon enters Pisces tomorrow for the aspects are much easier and very supportive.
Moon enters Pisces- Oct 24- 7.00am EDT- Whenever Sister Moon is in Pisces the theme is healing, forgiveness, release, completion and transformation. The aspects that are activated today totally support you to let go of relationship issues that are holding you back from being your true self and following your Soul Path. Really the only person that stands in your way is you. Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune in Pisces- 7.49am EDT- trine Sun in Scorpio- 9.52am EDT- trine Saturn in Scorpio- 11.09am EDT- conjunct Chiron in Pisces- 4.37pm EDT- sextile Pluto in Capricorn- 8.32pm EDT- All these activations are supporting your spiritual Soul Purpose Path. Healing and release of the old is a very powerful blessing. Just let go and you will wonder why you hung on so long to things that do not matter.
Sun in Scorpio conjunct Saturn in Scorpio- Oct 25- 4.32am EDT- Moon in Pisces square Mars in Sagittarius- 7.33am EDT- square Jupiter in Gemini- 12.09pm EDT- Mercury in Scorpio sextile Venus in Virgo- 1.10pm EDT-This energy can create conflict if you are still hanging on to the old patterns. Set yourself free to be your true self and you will experience inner balance and harmony. That is what this Moon cycle is about.
Pisces Gibbous Moon- Oct 25- 4.19pm EDT to Oct 29- 3.51pm EDT- This is the analyze, adjust, evaluate, redefine, and integrate phase. The theme of letting go of old patterns that was activated yesterday continues to the Taurus/Scorpio Full Moon on Oct 29. The Moon in Pisces asks us to heal, forgive, release, and complete. When you are able to forgive you are free.
Moon in Pisces trine Mercury in Scorpio- Oct 26- 10.44am EDT- opposite Venus in Virgo-11.04am EDT- These aspects create a contradiction. The first is harmonious, the second is challenging. Decide what you want to experience. It is always your choice. You create your own reality. Moon enters Aries- 3.31pm EDT- inconjunct Saturn in Scorpio- 8.24pm EDT- inconjunct Sun in Scorpio- 11.28pm EDT- When Sister Moon is in Aries she is a warrior energy. These aspects may bring up issues of control in relationship. The only person who has control is you. Be the spiritual warrior and you will be in your spiritual power. Some secrets may be revealed with this energy. Be grateful you now know the truth and do what you need to do.
Moon in Aries conjunct Uranus in Aries- Oct 27- 2.06am EDT- square Pluto in Capricorn- 5.43am EDT- These early morning aspects (EDT) may make you glad you are still in the dreamtime, if you are awake then make the changes now.

Sun in Scorpio inconjunct Uranus in Aries- Oct 28- 7.21am EDT- Mars in Sagittarius opposite Jupiter in Gemini- 8.54am EDT- These aspects will create confusion if you are trying to assert your will to create what you want. Take time to breathe and let spirit guide you. Venus enters Libra- 9.04am EDT- Venus in Libra inconjunct Neptune in Pisces- 5.11pm EDT- Venus in Libra wants harmony and balance and especially in relationship. The planet of love will be visiting her home sign until Nov 21. Focus on loving all that life is blessings you with and release conflict.
Moon in Aries inconjunct Mercury in Scorpio- Oct 29- 2.15am EDT- This early morning aspect (EDT) will stir up issues that you have tried to bury. Be aware what you suppress will come back to haunt you so best to deal with the situation now. Moon enters Taurus- 2.15am EDT- We now have the opportunity to define what is of true importance in our relationships and become empowered as we value ourselves as much as we do others. Mercury enters Sagittarius- 2.18am EDT- Because the planet of the mind retrogrades on Nov 06 he will be visiting Sagittarius, off and on, until Dec 31. The focus is your spiritual vision and Soul Purpose Path. See our note for Oct 18 for more insight. Mercury in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces- 1.40pm EDT-This aspect will bring up issues around truth. Since the Full Moon is happening in a couple of hours expect whatever issue comes up to be intense. Stay centered within and you will find your power and be able to deal with whatever is occurring in a balanced way.
Taurus/Scorpio Full Moon- Oct 29- 3.51pm EDT to Nov 02- 7.30pm EDT- This Full Moon completes the lessons we have been working on since the Taurus New Moon of Apr 21. The theme has been to look at your life and decide what is of true value and release what is not. It is called “cleaning out your closet”. Now is the time to let go of what no longer serves you. Moon in Taurus trine Pluto in Capricorn- 5.01pm EDT-This is the perfect time to release the old and make space for the new. Whatever you have been working on healing for the last six months can now be completed.
