Blessings mystics and seekers!
We start the week off with one of my favorite holidays, Dia De Los Muertos. I was married on the beach of Ricon De Guyabitos on this day in 2012. It is such a special time for us to honor our ancestors and those who are no longer with us. I hope all of you have been able to find this time to find peace and serenity amongst the chaos that has been these last few weeks. The shooting of Walter Wallace Jr. is devastating, and it feels so infuriating that we as a nation have made such little progress towards justice in our own country for our own citizens. Or so it feels that way, this whole year coming to an end is hard to wrap my mind around.
Over all there is a lot of tension in the astrological climate this week. Election week is upon us and on November 3rd, the day of the election, Mercury stations direct in Libra and Venus makes a tense and powerful inconjunct to Uranus in Taurus. Uranus is the planet that rules surprises and things that are unexpected. With Venus making an aspect to Uranus today, we may have some unexpected or shocking news in the days following our election. It's hard to make predictions when planets such as Uranus have a modus operandi of being unpredictable.
There is a collective anxiety that has been building over the last few weeks as we experience the tension within our power structures and the pressure to choose a side that may still not feel in alignment with our higher selves. I have had a lot of interactions as well as sessions with clients over this Mercury retrograde cycle that have eluded to the fact that everyone is feeling incredibly ungrounded and unsafe in their world. This collective fear and anxiety is happening on a large scale which can heighten our anxiety when we are sensitive to the energy of others. This is a hard time for empaths right now as we embark on this intuitive feeling that this is not the end of the hard times. It is important for us to use this intuition as a way to make choices in our lives that help set us up in a strong way to face adversity with strength and resilience. That journey will look different for all of us.
With the overall astrology of the week, I think it's safe to say that there will be some collective anxiety and anger in the atmosphere. Regardless of who wins this election, there will be some upheaval and frustration that the collective is under. Find a way to ground yourself and take some space to rejuvenate where you can. This is a good week to do a social media detox and reorganize your thoughts and feelings so that you can regain a sense of personal empowerment in who you are, perhaps away from the collective.

Today is the Mexican holiday Dia De Los Muertos where we honor loved ones who have passed over to the other side with food, flowers, and ritual.
With our Moon in Gemini over the coming days our mental energy could feel rampant and we may have a need to communicate our feelings. It is possible that we feel anxious or like we have a lot of energy throughout the day. This is best channeled into being productive and finding ways to make use of this excess energy.

Here in the USA our future relies on this election heavily and our country is extremely divided when it comes to what each individual feels is best for us all at this time. I have no words for this right now as I am not feeling too optimistic. I feel that the astrology of today will have us surprised with whatever events take place.

Moon enters Cancer 1:45 pm
With the Moon entering Cancer in the afternoon, we may feel a need to slow down and retreat. This is a good day to focus on self care and nurturing your body, heart, and spirit with things that help you to rejuvenate and recharge. We benefit from staying in and limiting social interaction.

This is a good day to find ways to comfort yourself and rejuvenate. We could feel ungrounded in the evening hours and likely to hurt ourselves if not careful. Move slowly, methodically, and be kind to yourself. There is potential for us to take something the wrong way and over react. Try to be mindful with where your triggers lie and the triggers of others.

This is a hard next couple days when it comes to communication. Mercury is finally direct which is helpful, but making a hard aspect to Saturn can give us some tension when it comes to how we confront issues in regard to our mundane reality. Mercury in Libra wants to be passive and keep the peace, but that may not be the appropriate way to handle a situation that we are up against. We may have to look at what is happening in front of us in a harsh and real way, whether we wanted to or not. Try to see the value in this and find the lessons where you can. With the Moon entering Leo in the evening hours, our need to feel validated in our personal experience is enhanced.

It takes a lot of creativity on our part to think outside the box when it comes to the challenges in life we may be facing. Our Sun making a hard aspect to Mars could have us feeling irritable or tense, but also motivated to make moves towards things we need to make progress with. We benefit from finding ways to humble ourselves with what is realistic, while also boosting our sense of self where we need motivation and inspiration to keep fighting for the future we want to manifest into our lives. This is a good day to ignite the personal passion we have for who we are on an individuated level, and not get caught up in comparing our journey to anyone else's but our own.

Today we have a last quarter Moon in hitting Leo in the early morning hours of the morning. A last quarter Moon happens after a Full Moon when the Sun and Moon are making a hard aspect called a square. The square aspect represents friction, tension, or challenges we may face during this time. Leo is the 5th sign of the zodiac and rules our self expression. This phase of the Moon asks for us to let go or release anything not in alignment with our hearts and how we are sharing ourselves with others. The reason why this phase is associated with release and letting go is because it is when the Moon is waning and fading towards a New Moon cycle. We can reflect during this time on things that tend to be on the frequency of Scorpio and Leo since those are the two signs involved. We may have had to make a lot of compromises or sacrifices this year that may have not always felt in alignment with who we are, or who we want to be. This is a positive time to set intentions towards letting go of anything in our lives that is not in alignment with who we feel we are at a heart level. It is also a good time to shed light on where we need to let go of a need for outside validation.
