Intuitive astrologer Kristina Wingeier is back for another episode of the MOONSHINE series on the #FlowerloungePodcast. We dive deep into what to expect this lunar cycle, important dates to throw on your calendar + flower elixirs recommended for getting a jump on *stabilizing* for it all!
Mercury moving into Scorpio for 3 times as long as usual ~ usually mercury stays in a sign for 3 weeks, but here it stays 9 weeks. Conversations are more deep, edgy, with taboo topics, trash talking, and digging into the underbelly.
Think: trash, garbage, sewers.
Find out where Scorpio is in your chart - to find out what the mercury review is about for you, because Mercury rules:
It’s about forging alliances and conflict resolution instead of trying to find the energy to fight. It may give you the energy to be super assertive. Mars is in Libra for six weeks - you might feel like you’re not getting things done as quickly or your drive is not as strong as previously.
Moon will be in Capricorn (south node, Pluto, kind of heavy) and Sagittarius (uplifting hopeful feeling from Jupiter).
Solidify intentions. After an obstacle you’ll know what action to take.
Mercury in Scorpio will move into opposite Uranus in Taurus - experience flashes of insight/intuition OR nervous energy and mania. It's about going deep to get the insights. Scorpio wants to heal things, transform + regenerate things. It’s important to get enough rest to support the nervous system.
This means that there in the categories of love and money, there will be intensity, obsession, dominance, and possibly even addiction.
We had Venus retrograde here a year ago, so during the first week things may pop up from the past. You may be finishing up something. Something may come up out of the woodwork. You may feel like it’s hard to trust people.
If you’re feeling kinda wonky or have a fear of deception like, “I thought I navigated these weird feelings already … why am I suddenly insecure about my bank account or my partner?” Only the second week of October will be a little touchy.
You experience excitement about something but it feels uncertain + unstableor like you are swinging from one extreme to the next.
Moon + Mars are in opposition. Words may feel like sharp arrows, but the silence will speak louder than words.
Make a breakthrough with this hot full moon. Beautiful full moon in Aries will help us use new tactics to solve an old problem. Try something new to move through the block - help you come to a new resolution.
Sun in Libra and Moon in Aries (ruled by Mars) so …. hot energy, impulsive but hard to do the thing you want to do.
Aries: me me me
Libra: we we we
Mercury + Saturn are having a conversation - either things feel fated or you feel boxed in. Instead of trying to figure it out, try not to get into conversations if you’re feeling super reactive. Have the conversation when you're more grounded.
Moon will pass over Chiron in Aries. Little wounded kid - move through anger and outrage, cocoon to soften nervous energy and rebirth with the full moon
FULL MOON RITUALS:
Moon hangover in Taurus and then Sun Pluto square. You might feel wired and tired, low energy. You may experience something that feels like manipulation, hidden agendas or foul play.
The energy shifts - really nice trine: Mercury in Scorpio + Neptune in Pisces.
Experience deep conversations, feel connected, and a sense of heightened intuition. Great for writers, depth, alchemy, mysticism, and interesting dreams. Make art instead of war. Sleep with some mugwort under your pillow for dream recall.
Mercury makes a nice sextile to Pluto: you’ll gain insights into some communication patterns. See the deeper pattern below a conversation.
You may be feeling more stable and secure with relationships in finances. This is a friendly aspect. Put some ground under your feet. Look at your budget. Look at finances or anything you’ve been avoiding.
We’re turning the corner where we’re reflecting on what we’re letting go of. Things may feel like they’re winding down.
Mercury and Neptune Pisces trine - dreamy and romantic vibe, “Everybody looks so good today, so lovely, sexy.”
Mars square with the North and South Node: Some compromises or adjustments to make. It won’t be just flow but also chiropractic adjustment.
This lights up your scorpio house for deep healing and transformation. Go inward to clear the cobwebs in your psyche. What you’ll want to navigate: where you keep yourself stuck in insecurities and your own personal hell realms. This month will help you take out the garbage.
Get some fresh air and don’t get sucked into the whirlpool. Do you want to feed that energy or strategize how to navigate it creatively? We all have areas where we get pulled under - notice where those are.
Scorpio loves control, but has no control with: Uranus in Taurus opposition. We may feel like we want to have control, but have none. This is a ghost-busting deep-cleaning moon. Let it die, melt it down. Move into phoenix energy - not the scorpion sting you because you’re pissed off.
Phoenix alchemizes the toxins; use the heat or irritation to burn though something of your own making. Burn it down to make the fertile ash.
Positioning of the feminine asteroids: If you’re going to go deep, don’t go deep into a conversation with someone, go deep into
Positioning of the feminine asteroids: If you’re going to go deep, don’t go deep into a conversation with someone, go deep into YOURSELF. Do something that is very still; let yourself unwind and relax your nervous system. Go deep into your body, not into an argument.
Mars and Saturn tight square on the same day - frustrations out things not going how we thought. The antidote: get still. Stop trying to push so hard. Don’t power through, just get still.
FULL MOON RITUALS:
Burn aromatic herbs. Light a candle. Write down what you’re alchemizing and burn it. Give the ash to your plants. ; )
Uranus wants to free you and awaken you. But you may experience nervous tension or feel irritable, zippy, frazzled. Or, you may get an unexpected surprise.
The Moon is quite close to Earth. Not quite a super moon but you can really feel it when it’s closer. Notice your energy level and try to moderate your nervous system.
Your mind and heart want to go deep. Mercury is about to go retrograde, so you may feel like sitting still, slowing down, listening and connecting. You bodies move slower than your brains. SLOW DOWN this week.
During this retrograde observe deep conversations, skeletons in the closet, deception, communication, travel, and money. Get to the bottom of things, review, and go into the underworld.
To get a jump start on stabilizing for the shifts these cosmic shifts will instigate, below are the flowers I recommend for this lunar cycle:
Joy Juice Collection: This joyful blend of flower essences is for laughter, fun + inviting your inner child out to play! It dissolves worry, complication + the weight of responsibilities. Life is too short to be serious all the time. It’s fun to laugh at ourselves. Having a sense of humor lightens up everyone’s mood and breaks up the tension.
Butterfly Elixir in the Flowerevolution Program: Butterfly elixir inspires us to see the wonder in life. With a light touch and ability to quickly shift gears, Butterfly helps us to simply ‘land on’ an issue - give it attention, see it, nourish oneself, and then move on to the next layer - much like the butterfly lands and then moves on to the next flower. It dissolves any tendencies we may have to fixate or get hung up in the details, particularly when it comes to the aspects of our own unfolding that need a soft touch. It allows for transformation from the inside out, with our inner-knowingness as our guide.
