Why is orange the color of Halloween? A combination of red and yellow. Red for blood and yellow for the Sun. We need extra energy this time of year. It is the season of goodbyes. We channel jellies, jams, preserves, for the winter ahead. We reestablish our nest for the hibernation. This is true even for southern climates. Along the equator where mankind gathered, in his progress to domination, the zodiac was the most alive n the sky. The sign of Scorpio was and is about death/rebirth.

In the ancient calendar it is the eighth month. The year started with the spring and the month of March. The earth cycles are the basis for most format and structure. The idea of cause and effect are the very fabric of our thinking, as much as we would like to believe we can be totally objective. It is good to strive for the ability to contain opposites. Hope is the gift we all need to believe in. Libra, as the sign of balance and the theme for the month, continues to reconcile and weigh our logic, emotion and common sense.

The God of war gets us going. How often do you need gentleness to get motivated? Usually we get a push out the door. There may be a bit too much analyzing of your motives. Use your sense of humor or urge to splurge. You must pacify Venus and the nature of harmony. Money is there to help give purpose to work and play.
Trial and error. Time and space. Age and beauty. The right and left sides of the brain are in a continuum of trying to integrate or resolve these apparent opposites. Pallas Athena was created out of the brain of Zeus, her father. She is the goddess of wisdom, she strives for impartiality. Athene's theory of Everything on YouTube observes these complexities, it shows through science, we can enhance our capabilities of self awareness.

Self discovery is emphasized through your ruler and his proximity to the beauty principle of Venus. Contemplation is not your usual mode of expression, but take advantage of this time to resonate with the unseen. You may be able to offer service to those who enjoy and appreciate your passion. You are rarely without spontaneity.
Full moon and Venus retrograde. Packs a punch. The sun king was admired 500 years ago. The heavens move on. We still love the shine but a bit of modesty and equanimity are blending with the glitz. But do things really change? Billionaires and rappers are the kings now...The thrill of gambling is part of our makeup. Unconditional love is still sought after. It can be observed with the struggle between dog lovers and baby lovers. Mid month, when Mars moves into Leo, the games begin and we can flirt with chaos.
You have been constrained too long by emotional ties. Time to start moving and getting into the fray with the initiative you were born with. Dance with the fire and walk the hot coals. You are the best at thinking on your feet. Making money may not be your thing, but it will come if you find the right service to offer.
The full moon and the 4th of July, makes for a busy start to the month. The USA birthday is all about, how many ways to Mother. We try to take care of the planet, or is it control? We are struggling like most other countries, the perception is we are the strongest. The ruling planet of the sign Cancer is the Moon. Our unconscious is most definitely not controllable. We can nudge, cajole and snipe away at the emotions that irk us. Eventually they will move on, like the bad breath monster. On good days we remember that every thing changes and feel ok about it. On bad days, it can seem as if we are embroiled in quicksand and there is no way out. Remember truth is elastic. What is transparent to some is murky to others.
Language is the theme of the Sun In Gemini. Have you noticed how every interest and action has a different one? An accountant, an actor and an aviator all have unique ways to express their purpose. If you like to analyze, each word has a way it can be expressed with variables. How often does our mood color our words? Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, likes to ask a lot of questions and gather information. Perhaps the reason why people talk less and text more is having to do with keeping the languages of others to a minimum?

For most of the month, your need will be to try and stay still. Action is everywhere, and sometimes it can be chaotic. Remember the word BE is as necessary as the word DO. The exotic contemplative nature of focus is to stay on track. Imagination feels good, but can spin out of orbit. You can observe by being around children.
Flowers are the simple joy of life. Color gives our minds space to feel and not analyze. Contemplate shapes, observe animals and small children. We can go from being still to movement and not be out of sync. The refrain is chemistry and rhythm as the scale of connecting. If something displeases, see it as one of the five senses just not responding. The hard part of life is being isolated. Talk to any you meet and greet. The earth is giving us new beginnings and we must seize the moment.

You are the motivator and not everyone is wanting to change and revitalize. If you come up against those who seem content to stay in their playground, you will probably have to start the engine alone. Seek out children to get the inspiration you need. Their energy is matching yours and will respond to your enthusiasm.
