Dreaming of FALLING


 
 
Dreams of Falling can be a disturbing experience leaving us breathless and anxious upon awakening.   
 
Yet if we remember that our dreams are there to help us vent emotions we can realize that dreaming is our own very personal form of therapy.  Dreams help us vent our emotions, unlike our waking hours where we can be held captive by social norms and putting on a "brave face."  Dreams allows us to experience our fears in safety and help to balance out our emotional landscape.
 
Dreaming of Falling frequently indicates a fear of losing control.  Most likely there is a situation in your life in which you feel a sense of helplessness or a lack of mastery.  It's a misnomer that if you fall and hit that you will die or that a heart attack is sure to follow.

In Western society especially, we are socialized to go after what we want and to attempt to control our environment.  What if the only "real" control is within self?  We DO have the ability to control our responses and how we will choose to interpret the events in our lives.

DREAMING OF FALLING:  out of control, loss of control; fear of losing control.
  • Being hurt after a fall - some damage or poor results that need to be addressed
  • Landing hard - a frightening time but you will survive the situation
  • Landing upright - "landing on your feet;" the situation is not as scary as you anticipated
  • Not surviving the fall - a part of self that is no longer useful in the forward movement/growth in your life experience; death of a "part of self;" death of a situation.
When things are spiraling out of control it may be a time to let go....to surrender to a life situation that you simply cannot control any longer.  There is honor in that and allows you to be open for "new" situations and people to enter your life.  We are in a constant cycle of death and rebirth..nothing is static in this life and this too "shall pass."

Trusting in a higher wisdom, god, spirit .... whatever your belief system adheres to, may be just the orientation needed to propel you forward in a new and more fulfilling direction.

Week Starting October 22nd



We enter the realm of Scorpio on the 23rd, a fitting sign for Halloween.  Scorpio likes mysteries and intensity.  Mercury is now in Scorpio, indicating a three week period when discussions have now left the civility of Libra and become more secretive and intense - expect a few hidden agendas here and there.

The Full Moon falls on the 22 in Aries, a time when relationship issues hit critical mass.  Something has changed inside you meaning change will need to happen on the outside.    Energies are a little befuddled on this day with Mars squaring both Neptune and Chiron.  Projecting confusion and hurt onto others may be the soup de jour so try to keep your intentions and agenda clear.

Things ease up nicely next week with a number of positive growth aspects occurring.  On Sunday Mars trines Uranus indicating an exciting and innovative energy.  The 25 is lovely for negotiations and cooing within relationships with Mercury conjunct Venus.  The 26 is powerful for concentration and forward movement.

The Sun snuggles up with Venus on the 28, a day when people are pleasantly receptive.  Halloween Eve sees Venus making nice with Pluto, a great day for dramatic displays of both affection and costume presentation.  Schedule a consult with Jean

ARIES:  Get through the full moon in your sign and you're almost there.... don't expect too much from yourself and try to navigate through your feelings of temporary confusion.  Sunday is a much brighter and clearer day for you.  Money and other people's resources are given 4 stars throughout the following week.

TAURUS:  Vague feelings of uneasiness pervade the day on the Full Moon....let it slide right on by and process any negative feelings internally.  The 25 through the 30 bring a very positive flow to all of your relationships.  Circle the 25, 28 and 30 as especially positive.

GEMINI:  Friendships and groups may feel a little nefarious on the Full Moon.  People's intentions are not clear and misunderstanding can abound.  Keep your head down and don't rock the boat.  The 25 is especially stared for the Twins when work exchanges are extra positive.   A deal can be struck around the 30.  Schedule a consult with Jean

CANCER:  The Full Moon (moon cycles are extra important for you Crab) can bring on feelings of insecurity and distractions.  Tender feelings may leave you feeling somewhat exposed - a time to protect your reputation.  Fun and games are highlighted from the 25 to the 30.  Halloween Eve is extra fun and satisfying.

LEO:  Travel plans and long distance travel or exchanges may not go as planned.  Patience IS a virtue.  Home and money are well starred on the 24.  Tuesday bodes well for gains in the work and health areas.  The 28 is extra nice when your Sun ruler snuggles up to Venus in your home and security sectors.

VIRGO:  Things are happening behind the scenes regarding deals, intimate talks and resources.  Wait for the fog to lift before forging ahead.  The 25 is ideal for talks and agreements.  Get out and about on Halloween Eve as the conversations you have with others will be entertaining and bring you previously hidden information.

LIBRA:  Other people's motives and meaning may not translate well on this Full Moon.  There is some confusion about so let the flog clear as next week brings extra nice energy boosts.  Partners are a delight on 24.  The 25 is THE day for money negotiations with Venus hugging Mercury in your money house.  The 28 looks good too.  Halloween provides the drama and excitement you crave.  Schedule a consult with Jean

SCORPIO:  Work matters come to a head on the Full Moon but things are not as cloudy as they appear.  The following week especially on the 26 you get your mojo back and forge ahead.  The 28 should bring love and affection your way. Halloween is right up your alley with Venus in your sign in a positive aspect with Pluto - neighbors are extra delightful this day.

SAGITTARIUS:  The Full Moon is full of fun and games but not of the upfront variety that you prefer.  Uneasiness in your communications with others melts away by Sunday.  Money prospects may arise on the 26.  Know that there are protective angels covering your back this week.

CAPRICORN:  Home, parents and inner security are all areas of possible frustration and confusion on the Full Moon.  Clarity reigns again on the 24 when Full Moon energies die down.  Friends are front and center throughout the work week and they bring you opportunities, positive encouragement and support - especially on Halloween Eve.

AQUARIUS:  Take your time traveling from point to point on Friday the Full Moon.  Getting lost, and confusion with appointments can easily happen - careful with the spoken and written word too.  Good news regarding career may float your way on the 25 and 28.  Schedule a consult with Jean

PISCES:  Money dealings, income and values of self-worth can be points of confusion on the Full Moon - let things lie and don't try to figure it all out as many things will be redeemed during the work week.  Travel, publishing and marketing receive positive energy on the 25 and 28.

We have one full week of Librian energy left before the Sun shifts into Scorpio on the 23rd.  Communications and how we put energy out into our environments are beautifully aspected this week.
Informational clarity arrives on the 16 when the Sun conjuncts Mercury.  The moon traverses Aquarius that day adding to the mental and communicative energy.   Inventive ideas, insights into problems and situations, and a busy day of phone calls, emails and conversations may pepper the day.  Pay attention to the information you receive as it will bring much needed clarity to your day.

Neptune and Chiron have been embracing all month asking us to accept our human limitations and to heel the hurt within.  During the process of healing we can then also extend that same compassion to our fellow travelers.  This can be a highly creative combination too and this week both Mercury (the 18) and then the Sun (the 19) make a beautiful trine to this soothing energy.  Deeper understanding and then action projected out into your environment can bring a positive flow to your life and your state of mind.

Mars the energy of action trines Jupiter on the 20 bringing a day of buoyancy and action.  The Moon shifts into action oriented Aries. Make a move and take a step towards doing something you've been too fearful or hesitant to do as things should turn out well.  Schedule a consult with Jean

ARIES:  It's a beautiful week in your neighborhood.  Partnerships blend well with your goals and there is a plentitude of  inspiration to go around...share it with the one's you love.  Ideas can easily be transformed into action.  Listen to your partners on the 16 as they may carry some insights you have overlooked.

TAURUS:  Divine guidance embraces your work environment, collegues and your career.  Positive energy flows through your days, tasks, health and schedule.  Expect "easy" breakthroughs in these areas and know that you are supported and respected.  The 16 may be a busy day of phone calls and emails so please pay attention to the information flow that day.  Future plans with partners are blessed on the 20. 

GEMINI:  Your creativity, self-expression and the "impact" you can make communicating are all highlighted and supported this week.  If you find yourself traveling it will be a upbeat and soothing experience.  Classes, publishing and marketing are all inspired activities to engage in as well.  Circle the 16 as a power house day to present and persuade.  Schedule a consult with Jean

CANCER:  Things are flowing nicely in your home and this week your home IS your castle.  An innate sense of well-being may overtake you providing comforting glimpses of peace and harmony.  A perfect week to beautify your surroundings and invite company.  The 20 brings a day full of creative fun and inspiration.

LEO:  Your ruling planet the Sun conjuncts Mercury in your communication house on the 16.  A happy, upbeat and talkative day with neighbors and siblings.  On the 19 the Sun sends missives to Neptune bringing a day of positive interactions with partners and important others.  You then follow up with action on the 20th.

VIRGO:  Clarity regarding finances and your self-worth are heading your way on the 16.  If there are deals to negotiate you are in an excellent position.  The 18 brings a wonderful opportunity to imagine and create new avenues of income.  You may also receive a clear message letting you know that you are indeed appreciated.

LIBRA:  The Sun/Mercury conjunction occurs in your sign on the 16.  It is a prime time to communicate who you really are and why you are doing what you are doing.  If you need to convince someone of something this is your day!  Work and financial partnerships shine on the 20, expect some bonuses to come your way.

SAGITTARIUS:  Friends are bringing you news of inspiration and clarity.  They hold information that is important to you in a very personal way.  Look to the 16 as a banner day to spend with friends and discuss goals.  On the 20 Mars the energy of action, hooks up with your ruler Jupiter delivering a day of deep inner "knowing" regarding your emotional security.

CAPRICORN:  Important information regarding your career should arrive on the 16...now, this may be an internal epiphany, but chances are this is delivered through an external source.  While Venus retrogrades through your friendship sector people from the past may start showing up in an effort to help you re-ignite your personal goals and thought process.  Look to the 20 as an inspiring day to put in fresh energy to infuse a project.


AQUARIUS:  Your philosophy of life and your collective understanding is opening up to a higher level of inspiration and peace.  This in turn effects the quality of "how" you live your life and express yourself.  This week you're beliefs and faith are notched up yet again as you see the possibilities of your manifestations taking hold.

PISCES:  Mercury and your ruling planet Neptune are making an easy alignment in the inner most parts of your being.  A state of grace is being offered and the deeper parts of self are receiving healing and blessings - circle the 18 as a day to become ultra aware.  The 20 is a perfect day for travel, presentations and inspired action.  Schedule a consult with Jean

Week Starting October 8th





HAPPY NEW MOON IN LIBRA on Oct. 7!  We enter the fall with a heavy emphasis on all things Venus related.  Venus was the goddess of love and beauty in Greek and Roman Mythology.  She was wily, captivating, beautiful, manipulative and an artisan.

The new moon asks us to initiate new starts in relationships.  Relationships encompass:  business partners, colleagues, anyone who works with us one-on-one (lawyers, doctors, counselors, accountants and spa professionals), lovers, marriage partners, best friends and most importantly our relationship with SELF. 

We "create" our reality through our thoughts, the things we value and attitudes we hold to be true.   You are what you think and Libra encapsulates this energy perfectly.  Libra is an intellectual energy that is ideally concerned with fairness and harmony.  Your internal landscape, what you think and value determines your external conditions.  Ponder that for a bit.  

On Friday the 8th the moon is void from 9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.  When the moon is void it is not making ANY connections to other planets in the ecliptic.  This lack of connection lends itself to a feeling of apathy and people tend not to engage in important decision making - so, plan the day's activities accordingly.  Additionally, today we have a Saturn conjunct Mercury which denotes a time of serious thinking, working alone or behind the scenes, and a distinct flavor of pessimism may color the day.  Friday is not the ideal time to approach others for firm and positive exchanges ...things may "feel" stuck or in backward motion  but allow the energy to be "what it is" as forward motion will resume in the future.

Venus also turns retrograde on Friday (please read my article for more information) indicating the start of a four week period of slowed energy regarding love and money.

ARIES:  Look to others this week as the delivery system for both inspiration and food for thought.  Your ruler Mars has been snuggling with Venus in your eighth house of financial backing, intimate significant others and transformation.  You'll bust lose after this time of review next month when more outward action is on your agenda.

TAURUS:    You like deep emotional, mysterious and mystic connections as they help even out your sometimes overly practical nature.  You enjoy a 4 week period of Venus backtracking through your partnership sign of Scorpio - intense indeed!  The NEW MOON brings fresh energy into your working environment and renewing past work relationships will now work in your favor.

GEMINI:  NEW MOON magic arrives in your expressive and creative fifth house.  A two week period of time to really connect with the unique specialness of you!  Things are serious and work oriented on Friday but you are up to the task.  

CANCER:   Home, family, roots and emotional comfort are given energy by the NEW MOON.  Fresh understanding regarding your family and your security needs can be revealed to you over the next few weeks.  Fun IS still on the agenda and your creative energies are deepening.

LEO:  How you communicate, what you think and how you approach self-expression is enhanced by the NEW MOON.  Connections within your immediate environment are pleasantly energized and so is your mental attitude.  Is your home or family relationships in need of an overhaul?

VIRGO:  Some rethinking is in evidence as to how you communicate your messages out into the world.  Come mid-November a new level of understanding and perhaps even compassion will be integrated into your communication style.  The NEW MOON may bring fresh approaches with earned income and personal value.

LIBRA:  Happy Birthday Scales!  Your personal NEW MOON falls in your house of self-expression, how you present yourself to the world and your personal identity.  Expect to emerge in mid-November as a newer version of your previous self.  Your ruling planet Venus turns retrograde on Friday 8 signalling a time for additional review regarding earned income and self-value.

SCORPIO:   What does it mean when people use phrases such as the inner life, spiritual practice and time spent in introspection?  Only you can answer that Scorpio but the questions ARE being posed compliments of the energetic NEW MOON.  What feeds and nourishes you on the inner levels?  Answer those questions and you'll feel the changes that can be positively implemented come mid-November.

SAGITTARIUS:  New goals, new friends and perhaps even new earnings may be heading your way this week.  Some friendships and goals have been swept along the wayside.  Consider the adage that the glass needs to be emptied to make way for the new.  Please allow this to happen without fear or recrimination k?  Reaching out for some familiar spiritual comforts serves you well now.

CAPRICORN:  New starts would typically be indicated by a NEW MOON in your career house, but now this process is a bit more intricate.  Consider yourself in a review period while you ponder and seek to more deeply understand what you bring to the world in terms of "value."  A clearer view of avenues for moving ahead will be brought to you come mid-November.

AQUARIUS:  World views, philosophy's of life, learning and teaching, long-distance travel for the purpose of learning are all areas that fall under the domain of the NEW MOON.  Part of what you are learning is tied in to what you offer through your work and career.  What is important to you in this life?  What are your belief systems and are they uniquely yours or inherited versions from your family of origin?  Worthwhile time can be spent reviewing why you think and believe what you think and believe.

PISCES:  In some ways a very internal time for you fishes.  The NEW MOON falls in a sector of your chart dealing with aspects of the past and the need for release and transformation of some old junk that is still hanging on.  Venus retrograding in the area concerning your beliefs and view of the world is seeking to help you redefine your inner resources and those that you share with others.

Character and Spiritual Development Dreams


Dreams are experienced to help you grow and learn.  This type of dreaming addresses your fears, hopes, and wishes.  Often your dreams will let you know when you need to adjust your attitude and perhaps look at a situation or person in a different way.

If you believe in the premise that we are all on this earth to learn and develop, then this type of dreaming will provide indications of how you are doing.  Often you will receive messages in your dreams of how well you are coping with your waking hours.  At other times, you can expect to experience a cycle of dreaming that feels more critical and reprimanding.  

Have you had developmental dreams?
