Warning: Take the Month Off

IMG_0291Yesterday, the Daily Post writing prompt asked us to invent an astrological sign for ourselves. While I was too upside down and backwards to do that piece, I’m pulling myself out of the depths for today’s post: The actual horoscope for October, written in retrospect. Retrospect I can do.

October Horoscope

During this month, the pieces of your carefully constructed reality will fly up in the air and come down again in a different order. You’ll want to move forward, but you won’t know where anything is.

The people closest to you will suddenly seem to have lost their minds. They will make decisions you don’t understand and can’t prevent. People will exit and enter your life at a dizzying rate, leaving an impact far beyond what is reasonable or predictable. Things that felt solid will dissolve under your feet. Things that seemed moveable will remain so solid you cannot budge them.

And although you are entering a period of extreme unrest, all you will want to do is rest. You will find yourself resting as items on your to-do list pile up around you.

Make no mistake – this energy is taking you somewhere, you just don’t know where. Big change is coming. It has to. You’ve felt its approach for a long time now, but you haven’t been ready to face it. Well, get ready. You can’t stop change.

The temptation will be to close your eyes, open them up when it’s all over, and see where you’ve landed, like Dorothy in the tornado, headed off to Oz. If that’s the tack you take, just be ready, when you open your eyes, for your surroundings to look completely different. And to, somehow, find your way back home.

  1. Your October sounds a lot like my 2014. Well, 2014 and most of 2013, actually. Kyra and I are convinced that this is not astrological. Rather, John Irving is scripting our lives. (I do wish he would stop now). Which living author is scripting your life?


  2. “The waiting is the hardest part
    Every day you see one more card
    You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
    The waiting is the hardest part

    Don’t let it kill you baby, don’t let it get to you
    Don’t let ’em kill you baby, don’t let ’em get to you”

    Some Tom Petty for you=)


  3. I know it’s never easy to stand in the storm, and it’s ok to close your eyes, but let yourself feel the pain, the confusion, and chaos, because even though it’s not the best feelings, it’s how you know you’re still alive. Hugs to you while you weather this tornado, and I’ll be excited to hear of the beautiful place you land.
