Oct 1, Monday. The waning Moon though still fairly full Moon moves into Taurus at 4:26 pm transmitting the mysteries that have the most to do with the ability to receive ecstatic, orgasmic life force energy in the body as it relates to deep intimacy and sacred pleasure. This is a perfect time for embracing the return of the Garden of Earthly Delight as it relates to sacred physical pleasure in the body.
One of the most powerful experiences that we have as human beings is orgasmic energy, and if we can pair it with intent, then we can direct the most powerful manifesting force available on earth…. If enough people learn to imbue their orgasmic energy with prayer, we can manifest more peace. This is not just a New Age, hippie concept.
It has been written in ancient texts and recently became the subject of study for quantum theorists…Remember the Hundreth Monkey Theory? Consider the possibility that our individual body temple is a microcosm of the collective consciousness.
As we heal our own shallow breathing patterns, we’ll stop polluting the air. As we heal our unhealthy eating habits, we’ll stop consuming and wasting nonrenewable resources on the planet. As we heal our emotional wounding, the world’s waters will run clear again. As we heal our sexual wounding, all beings may be happy and all beings may be free.

Mercury is within 1.6 degrees of Spica low on the western horizon only 15 degrees from the Sun. So it is likely neither Mercury or Spica will be visible without a low horizon line. This is the third planet to pass Spica since Saturn and Mars were exactly conjunct each other with Spica in August. Mercury is transmitting messages about conscious equal partnership connected to the light codes of this magical divine feminine star. (see August Archives for more)
Oct 2, Tuesday. Venus moves into Virgo at 11:59 PM tonight passing by the fixed royal star Regulus. This is an ultra close conjunction of only .15 degrees SW of Regulus and the closest planetary conjunction with a first magnitude star this year. This spectacular pairing is visible in the morning sky.
Master Astrologer, Dane Rudhyar felt that the 30th degree of Leo and the first degree of Virgo was the Sphinx point that represented half Lion and half Virgin Priestess and the transition between these two energies. He went onto say that Regulus would reach the seasonal sign of Virgo around 2010. The actual date according to Solar Fire was Nov 28, 2011 so a very close approximation of the Timing considering the season of Leo overlayed Regulus for over 2100 years.
Rudhyar felt the movement of Leo over Regulus that happened around 137 BCE was the beginning of the “so-called ‘Piscean’ Age.” So if the movement of Leo over Regulus symbolized a Turning of a 2100+ year age then the movement of Virgo over Regulus would indicate the beginning of another 2100 + year age. In his book Astrological Timing The Transition To the New Age, Dane Rudhyar went on to say that when the great red star Betelgeuze would have the seasonal sign of Cancer overlay it that represented the beginning of another age. According to Solar Fire that won’t happen until 2089.
Remember this IS about the seasonal signs of Leo and Virgo, NOT the constellations also known as Leo and Virgo, although Regulus is in the constellation of the Lion. Regulus will remain in the constellation of the Lion (a.k.a Leo) because the star patterns are fixed in space and they do not move. However, the seasons (a.k.a. the signs) are moving or precessing across the stars and constellations. (See more detailed explanation HERE)
I mention this because I have seen internet posts wondering how Regulus (a fixed star) will move into the constellation of Virgo – not realizing the sign Virgo is different than the constellation by the same name. The confusion is due to the misunderstanding of the difference between signs and constellations. The first video on this page explains the difference in about 15 minutes..
Venus passing by the Sphinx point suggests the Divine Feminine is receiving her annual inspiration and light code downloads.
Oct 3, Wednesday. Venus touches Regulus in the early morning hours…be sure to check out the audio on the Four Royal Stars…nload from the heart of the Lion that is also the guardian of the Hall of Records. The exact conjunction is NOT visible but Venus can be seen approaching Regulus in the early morning sky and will be visible just slightly beyond Regulus tomorrow morning.
Venus (1 Virgo) opposes retrograde Neptune (1 Pisces) at 3:28 pm. Being willing to NOT know and being willing to ask questions, listening for answers, staying attuned to inner guidance, and noticing synchronicities are some ways our questions get answered in a Neptune transit.
The shadow side of Neptune expresses through confusion, uncertainty, illusions, loosing touch with reality, and what it really takes to manifest our dreams and desires in this dimension. This timing is one of the deepest, most inner-directed times for accessing our own “big picture” through inner processes. When we are in touch with our inner knowing, we intuit what steps are needed to fulfill our dreams that often are beyond logic and reason.
