Love Can Build a Bridge – Oct 2017
October 2017 resonates to the number 20, which implies that spiritual help is available to you if you are a “helper”. Number 20 is similar to the number 2000, except for a few zeros. Of course a few zeros do make a difference, especially in a bank account, but the point is that October is the closest we have come for a long time to being in alignment with this new era. The 2 followed by zero(s) is an indication of spiritual support to achieve peace on earth.
Breathe, meditate and take things a little easy. Be helpful. Compromise to keep the peace, without becoming too submissive. Be mindful of small details and read the fine print before signing contracts. Diplomacy is called for. LISTEN to others. They may have a valid point and you may learn something.
Focus on details this month. Review contracts, income tax records and policies. These contracts include all the contracts and job descriptions of employees if you have your own company. A good month for negotiating new deals, but be aware of every word that you are signing, as the “2” has a tendency to be sneaky and hide the truth.
Maintain friendly and harmonious relationships with others. You could make new friends, enter into a new romantic or work relationship, and just generally have a peaceful and harmonious month. However, this means you need to cultivate tact and diplomacy and focus on working in a team. You should be able to resolve any conflicts in a cooperative manner. Be an ambassador for peaceful negotiations.
This is the time to be patient, and to let all the things happen naturally. Go with the flow and float if you can. Have a little faith in the Universe. Meditate and listen to the small, still voice of your soul.
However, this does not mean dependency on others, nor does it mean being a doormat. Heavy resistance or projecting your sensitivities will only make the situation worse. This is especially true if your pattern of coping is “attack is the best form of defense”.
Tears and sulking will likewise not get you anywhere. Neither will causing a crisis or playing the victim. Feeling sorry for yourself and going on a “poor me” tangent will alienate you when you might have had assistance had you approached the matter differently and cooperatively.
Stay calm. Go quietly about your day and this sensitive and slower phase will pass peacefully.
Avoid gossip – a downside of this number – and stay out of “politics” unless it is your “job”.
In fact, for many the slower and gentler pace will be welcome. For those with strong yang energies, this month’s energy will be very frustrating – so get with the program. This month it is about smelling the roses and getting in touch with your soul.
Trying to force the pace or make things happen will be fruitless. It will have the same effect as banging your head against a wall. You will end up bruised and the wall will still be standing. For those with strong yang energies, this month will make you acutely aware of the switch to yin energies, which will set the tone for next year. It is the beginning of a 12-month period of taking care of smaller things and people and details. Use this month to start slowing down. The universe will floor you if you push, and your immune system will take its toll to force you to slow down.
You know what they say – you can do this the easy way, or the hard way. The choice is yours.
Music will soothe the soul in this highly sensitive and emotional month.
Until next month – keep calm and collected and be supportive.
