OCTOBER 2019 NEWSLETTER ‘REGENERATION’

It’s not all about you; it is about a collective regeneration which ultimately will benefit you.
For the longest time the need for change and transformation has been the theme of our lives. Throughout the world we realise we are not the only nation affected by change.
In the past two years we have seen dictators fall, changes in leadership, and countries in crisis, impeachments and people no longer tolerating abusive prime ministers, mayors or those in power. The struggle has been aggressive and massive as the people of nations strike in an effort to take back their basic human rights.
This collective struggle can be translated into our own personal struggles. So many of us are uncomfortable with our lives as they are, we are feeling the shifts and changes around us vibrating within us. This is how it is supposed to be, the universal is an energy entering a regenerative period and as we are all a part of this universe this vibration will be felt deeply within us.
Something is emerging on the horizon, some light that is beginning to show us where our lives are heading to.
Pluto is moving into his station after just over 5 Months of being retrograde. A Pluto retrograde is the most profound of all the planets; it brings about a complete transformation from one way of being to another. As for us human beings, this can translate into a psychological meltdown or lost in the dark feeling. not knowing what we are to become or what life will be like when we emerge from the changes, deaths and endings Pluto has enforced upon us.
When a planet slows, stops, and turns backwards or forwards, we call this period a “station” because the planet is literally pivoting, we can expect pivotal events that can trigger changes according to the nature of the planet and the sign it is transiting through.
Pluto is in Capricorn an ambitious sign that can enforce structure, responsibility, and efficiency upon us. It is not advisable to rush any decisions or changes when experiencing a Capricorn transiting energy. Rather take your time to understand the lessons of Capricorn so that you can put in the correct structure to succeed.
Pluto in Capricorn wants to control and dominate, it can be ruthless not taking into regard standards, morals and ethics of others. This explains one of the reasons we are seeing many a dictator in positions of power these days.
It certainly is a great time to succeed in your strive for self realisation, owing your own worth enabling you to grasp the opportunity for success. But as we are dealing with Pluto you will only do this through a great change in your life, such as a new job, binning people that are restricting you or are the reason you to feel lost, preventing you from finding out what you are really supposed to be doing.
Why is this all coming to light? Pluto and Jupiter are connection in an aspect that allows one to slowly emerge from a dark place as our transformation slowly begins. This can be painful; I have a grandson and have watched his pain as his teeth are breaking through his gums.
Teething is a slow process, it cannot be rushed as the pain would be unbearable, and as each tooth emerges he is able to eat more and more, enjoying a variety of foods. These foods in turn bring the correct structure to his growth. Any transformation where Pluto is involved takes time, it cannot be rushed, even though Jupiter does trigger an impatience to transform and grow as fast as you can and in a big way…
Jupiter is moving along very comfortably in Sagittarius bringing about a strong desire to expand in a prophetic and inspirational way. The energy calls us to strive for positions in life that will bring us prestige and power.
This particular Pluto Jupiter connection is likened to the light we get from the Sun as it begins to shed its light onto a new morning just minutes before sunrise. Potential is coming to light and we can slowly see how we can create great things in our lives starting from the position you are in your life now.
We have time to understand this regenerative process as we get more and more clarity. If we are able to embrace the changes fraught upon us we will see the opportunities these changes will bring within the next year.
Yes life has been very hard and as we continue to experience the above energy it will become more and more challenging. Do not give up what has been started, avoiding or fighting this will result in loss owing to the perceived sanctuary of a cocoon instead of the emerging of a beautiful vibrant new butterfly.
It all starts this month people so get onto the bus taking us to a place of regeneration and self discovery.
As for the other planets, Venus and Mars are moving into each other’s sign, Venus moves to Scorpio and Mars to Libra, perhaps this is a time for men and women to find a mutual understanding of each other.
Mercury is in Scorpio so communication can bring about change, but it may be in a nasty manner. Just be aware of how you communicate to others as you may just say things that will make you wish you bit your tongue. Remember sometimes words can be very damaging.
This will become difficult to control towards the end of the month as Mercury moves into his station before retrograding in Scorpio. Oh my goodness watch this space as Donald Trump may just blurt out something very dangerous and even more aggressive and damaging than normal.
With Venus in Scorpio and Mars in Libra gender issues will come to light and brought out into the open. The need for change will be communicated in a transformative, intense and powerful way especially with Mercury in Scorpio when in his station the matter will intensify.
On a more personal front the ability to connect with others with a better understanding of each other could bring about positive change. Get to know the other side of a relationship, in some cases a comment can trigger a deep exploration of the relationship.

Spring is in full swing and with the warmer weather it brings about outdoor sports and activities.
Bone health is very important as strengthening your bones are vital for prevention of stress fractures and other injuries. As we get older our bones weaken so here are some tips for bone health.
The number one tip is to increase your weight baring exercises as the resistant energy will strengthen your muscles and in turn builds stronger bones. These exercises vary from hiking, walking, climbing, weight training, yoga and palates.
Dietary awareness is another important factor and umber one for bones is calcium. The best most absorbed forms of calcium we get from food, these are the dairy products, nuts, green veggies such as broccoli and cabbage, as well as okra if you can find some form your green grocer, and okra is brilliant if you need to thicken soups and stews. I was surprised to find out that spinach is not high in calcium it does have other important qualities though.
If you have a dairy allergy then kale, tofu, nuts, seeds especially sesame seeds and beans are higher in calcium than dairy as too are the edible bones in tinned fish such as sardines and salmon.
Gelatine is a brilliant source of calcium and great for strong bones. I no longer feel bad about the copious amount of wine gums I consume whilst working on my articles.
Enjoy a health injury free summer!
