From October 8 till November 6, the monthly energies are ruled by Water Dog (Ren Xu). The image of Water Dog is an acid lake, full of salts and deadly minerals where life is impossible. Before anything can flourish again, things need to be cleaned up. Filmfans can see the destruction of an acid lake in the movie Life of Pi.
What to expect in October
The Month of October represents a rutheless time of cleaning up and eliminating problems in personal life, business events and even on the (political) world stage. Whatever needs to be eliminated, the Universe will reveal to us in October…This in preparation of Pig Month November, which indicates the already descending energies of the new year 2019.
On a personal level
If Dog is your Noble person (helpful people), please be prepared to receive help: recognise or find people with Dog in their chart, ask for their help, and they will be there for you! Accepts these helpful people and their actions to advance in your life.
People with Dragon in their charts: this is the meeting of two huge mountains: expect changes in life and new things to arrive.
People with Rabbit, Tiger or Horse int heir charts: expect some ‘fire’ this month
Depending on what the element of fire is for you, you may expect:
- self element: networking and leadership
- output element: creativity and performing
- wealth element: wealth and achievement
- control element: authority and discipline
- resource element: health and learning.
Auspicious directions for October 2018
South West, especially for studies: the ultimate learning constellation Moon Deity + Assistant Star + Delusion Door. Great direction for children this month; seat them with their back towards this direction. Results will arrive fast.
Specific features: auspicious for conducting a seminar, attending a class, awakening innate talents through training, seeking out a mentor and for matters that require unique hands-on skills.
Hexagram 57: Wind or gentle penetration, which indicates gentleness and enormous power. One is asked to look deeper into a situation to find the less obvious power of the matter. It’s a constant and gentle action and deals about home-coming and finding the answers…
South, especially for networking and relationships: Harmony Deity + Destructor Star + Harm Door. Expect this month to deal with relationships and/or review your networks if you sit with your back to this direction. Some probably need to be changed or cleaned up; breaking down and building up is the device here. In all these matters expect that there will be some thunder involved, and then the sky will be clear again.
Specific features: auspicious to send sales teams and making calls, expanding business or going on a longer business journey and fight illegal acts and catching criminals (white collar crime).
Hexagram 51: Thunder or shock, which indicates unexpected happenings, emotions and a wakeup call. Changes that you did not ask for, but are good for you. The hidden influence of this hexagram is a call for innovation: things that worked in the past, will no longer do. New feelings that arise might be unfamiliar but quite refreshing…
