Hello lovely ones and happy October!
Before I dive into the month ahead a quick shout out to anyone in LA or visiting…I have a few exciting Soulstrology Soundbath events ahead….one this coming Friday at Wanderlust and at the end of the month I am super proud to be part of Wellspring where I will be playing two Soulstrology Soundbaths a day.
Wellspring is an incredible, first of its kind conference in Palm Springs with leading teachers, innovators and conscious companies, with speeches (Marianne Williamson and Glennon Doyle to name a couple of the speakers lined up!) workshops, yoga, meditation and more.
I am SO excited to not only be part of the conference but also to attend.
If you decide to come, drop me a line to let me know so we can say hi!
Onwards now to October 2018 which sees Venus turn retrograde and a host of tense astrological aspects.
Retrogrades and the prospect of tense celestial aspects could make you feel uncomfortable.
Perhaps it brings feelings of uncertainty or fear or just makes you feel somewhat discombobulated at the prospect of life becoming a little unsettled.
However, as I have shared before, retrogrades are often times when the past comes knocking in the best possible way.
Retrogrades can be a time when previous wrongs are righted.
When things that have unraveled come back together.
When miracles take place.
Given this Venus retrograde is initially in Scorpio and given that cosmic benefic Jupiter has been transiting Scorpio for the last year, Soulstrology tells us that despite the celestial topsy turvy nature of October 2018, we may well find that what this month brings is ultimately for our best.
Which brings me nicely to the title of this blog and the Soulstrology theme for October 2018:
Being open to what comes next.
Being open this month means not reacting to each twist and turn, but dancing with it.
Being open means not assuming the worst when something seemingly ‘bad’ happens.
Being open means being aware that although you may have a plan of how things are meant to unfold, the universe may have a different plan for you.
And this plan and the path it takes you on not only has a purpose (for your soul growth) but ultimately takes you to where you want to be..
Being open means responding, not reacting.
This can mean deep breaths, time outs and doing the inner work before taking external action.
Being open means having an open heart and mind.
It means allowing life to happen through you, not to you.
It takes courage and doing the self-work but it is well worth the effort.
So, even if just for this month, be open to what comes next…
Mantra of the month: -
I choose to be open
In choosing to be open I approach this month ahead with an open mind and heart
I am open as to whatever comes next, trusting that what comes is what is necessary
I choose to believe that in spite of how things may seem, ultimately they will work out for my highest good
I choose to trust, to have faith, to be optimistic
Wishing you all a month of openness and wonder.
May whatever comes next be exactly what you need and may it help transition you to the next season of life.
And so it is.
