Highway Driving with Ed Sheeran—finding love in unexpected places

Music is a portal to experiencing love. The right song can transport your being to another place and before you know it you realize you are dancing, laughing, even crying. I bet most people have a song associated with a memory that is filled with love. Traditionally, many even begin their marriages with a “first dance” and spend copious amounts of time picking just the right song that captures the moment perfectly.

Before we get to highway driving with Ed Sheeran, a little background. I have a lot of Piscean energy illuminated in my chart right now so I have been really enjoying music—which is unusual for me. A lot of times I find myself driving in silence. One of my good friends even pokes fun at me for it. I listen to music with my body so I often don’t know artists, lyrics or even genres. I find that music can be really overwhelming, so the situation has to be perfect for me to want to open myself up to music. As we get to know ourselves better, even something as simple as understanding how we listen to music, we can understand our purpose more intimately to live to our full potential.

It is my daughter who has recently taught me that there is more than one way to listen to music. She listens with just her head. She always wants to know the title and words—it used to drive me crazy. I’d say, “It doesn’t matter just listen. Bring it into your heart and belly to listen.” She’d get so frustrated. I’ve since stopped trying to get her to experience music in the way I do. It wasn’t until I obliged her mind with all the information it needed that she started to enjoy music. And truth be told, when I allowed my mind into the experience, I too started to enjoy music more—it is less intense.

This small switch has been one of the most loving things I have done for us. Seeing us as individuals and honoring our differences even in the small way of listening to music empowers us and, as a bonus, music has become fun and playful. It allows us a shared experience that fills both of our cups and shows her I love her exactly the way she is. We roll the windows down and crank it so that when each song starts, I have to turn my head and yell the title to her. Many times, when we get home, she’ll ask me to write the song titles down for her. It makes me smile knowing that her little mind is spinning thinking about what she’s experienced. Someday, she’ll ask me about what her heart and belly have to do with listening to music and I’ll {low-key} jump for joy, and we’ll play with music in a different way together. But until then I’ll give her all the information she needs to love music her way.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago when I found myself in a glorious moment alone in the car with windows down on the highway, but I was sobbing driving down the road—I’d been triggered by the music playing. Because my daughter has taught me how to listen to music in a new way, I’d let my mind hear the words and then I brought them into my body and I’d started a healing reaction. A little shook that Ed Sheeran could have such impact, I haven’t been able to let the song, What do I Know? go yet; although, it hasn’t made me cry again just smile.

In some ways the song is spot on about love and how it can literally change the world in a moment but in other ways it misses the mark. It says, “You know we are made up of love and hate but both of them are balanced on a razor blade.” I disagree. We are ONLY made up of love, and we can always find out way back to it. Hate doesn’t live in balance with love. We are always, even unknowingly, trying to fill ourselves with love—it doesn’t need to be balanced with hate and its certainly not an either-or situation. But this doesn’t stop me from loving the song right now—I’m sure in a few weeks I’ll be sick of it and ready for a new one.

I invite you to look for love in new places, like how you listen to music with your family or respond to triggers. No matter what you may feel, you are worthy of experiencing all the love in the universe. Experiencing love will help guide you on your path to understanding your purpose as it illuminates your soul.

Week 1: Work hard, play hard

Dates – 11/1 – 11/7

The beginning of the week is filled with ways to lift your spirits and bring fresh perspectives. Get real and be honest with yourself and others. You may want to get serious by deepening the love in your life. Toward end of the week, you’ll have the ability to see beneath the surface and find solutions to problems that have been plaguing you for too long. Then you get to enjoy your weekend with friendly fun, excellent conversations and good vibes.

All in all, there’s lots of new and exciting changes seem to be the norm this week. There’s good luck on the 1st and the 6th, but the New Moon on the 4th may be disruptive to your long-term plans.

New Moon: Lasting Change

Details: Sun & Moon in Scorpio @ 12° on 11/4 @ 5:15 pm ET

You want freedom, independence and anything new. In fact, anything that arises today seems shiny and exciting. Take heed. Things are changing rapidly, so keep an open mind as impulsivity abounds. Don’t be rash. Wait a few days and then revisit. If it’s meant to be part of your long-term plans, it will remain. If not, it will dissipate.

Week 2: Stay the Course

Dates – 11/8 – 11/14

Ignore the push to be defensive and establish boundaries. There’s a strong force making you susceptible to power grabs and controlling impulses. You’re going to want to compete, push back and take control over things that may or may not be under your authority. Don’t resist or persist. Stand back and observe with objectivity. Don’t get embroiled in affairs that aren’t yours.

Keep your head down and eyes focused forward to stay on your own path. You’ll feel super sensitive to other’s plights at the end of the week. Use this influence to find understanding from a higher point of view. It’s a great time to get creative, social and seek to improve your love life. It’s also a good time for healing and intuition. This will help with the hectic pace, interruptions and fritzy technology.

Week 3: Step forward with confidence

Dates – 11/15 – 11/21

Keep your cool and enjoy this great week of good fortune and excellent news, however, take care not to overpromise or overextend. Stay within your lane for a wonderful time filled with confidence and success.

You’re determined, goal-oriented and energized to strive for your future. Get things done and remove anything limiting to your future success or satisfaction.  Put as much effort into fun and romance as you do for work and you’ll really enjoy this week.

Full Moon/Eclipse: Get creative

Details: November 19 Partial Lunar Eclipse Full Moon/Taurus @ 3:59 am ET

Use your high energy and hopes for the future to gain ground on your goals. Be creative and rely on your imagination to set intentions for the next 6 months. Dream big and fuel your desire to succeed. Remember to seek satisfaction as part of your success quotient. Be mindful of falling into frustration by any disruptions that seem to get in your way. Look at the larger picture and realize all you’ve achieved over the past year. Celebrate yourself and all of the strides you’re made.

Week 4: Enjoy every moment

Dates – 11/22 – 11/30

Have fun and enjoy this week fully. Be bold, seek adventure and say yes to new and exciting situations. You’ll be able to move forward with your work and also find time for pleasure. Do both with zeal to get the most out of this week. Relish every moment.

Bottom Line: Be successful

November is an excellent month when you stay calm, keep focused and relish the joy of having fun and getting things done. Take advantage of the ecliptic period to set your intentions for the upcoming year.

October 2021: Relationships

Stay focused on your path.   


Overall

What was written at the top of the year holds true.

The best mantra for this month is, ‘No one owes anyone anything – ever.’ When we understand our relationships to be open and responsive, not limiting or controlling, we realize the true meaning of interdependence. Otherwise, we fall prey to power struggles, compulsive behaviors and competitive challenges. It’s so much better to embrace new ways of relating and loving ourselves and each other. When we do, we have the opportunity to integrate new ways for calm, value and harmony. Yes, this means peace and prosperity.  

Supportive Intuitive Tools

Oracle: #25 Brilliance

Observe how you’re shining your brilliance in the world and how you’re holding yourself back. You want to ensure you’re stepping forward to live your life to the fullest.

Crystal: Moonstone

This is a stone that channels the Moon. It attunes to the ebb and flow of the Moon and helps with stability as it balances you during the cycles of life. Use moonstone to enhances your intuition. It’s particularly helpful with Mercury retrograde.

Flower essence: Chicory

Release your need to be over-concerned for other’s lives, especially if you’re experiencing FOMO. This is an excellent indication you’re ignoring your own needs and desires. Put your focus back on yourself by paying attention to YOU – your thoughts and feelings. Chicory helps you do this as it helps you get moving on putting your life together by releasing attachments and expectations that aren’t your own. It also supports you to be loving and caring without being cloying or jealous.  

Supportive Practical Tips

Quick tip:

  • Make adjustments to deal with anything that’s bugging you.

Diving deeper:

  • Yes, you’re tired and probably frustrated with all of the uncertainty and aggravations this year. BUT, stay focused. Better times are coming.
  • Look at the people, circumstances or situations rubbing you the wrong way. Everything that’s bugging you isn’t supportive of your future. Make the changes now before they grow bigger and more aggravating.
  • Take ownership to fulfill your hopes and dreams.
  • Release your need to get involved in things that aren’t yours.
  • Go with the flow and let go of control.

Big Star Events

  • Mercury retrograde 9/27 – 10/18
  • Pluto in Capricorn direct 10/6
  • Saturn in Aquarius direct 10/11
  • Jupiter in Aquarius direct 10/18
  • Venus in Sagittarius out of bounds 10/9 – 12/7

Week 1: Get to work

Dates – 10/4 – 10/10

Your thoughts and feelings are confusing and frustrating. You’re ready for things to align, but you’re being pushed and pulled by negative impressions, power struggles and the overwhelming need to know how things are going to be in the next week, month or year.

You’re sick and tired of being uncertain, have decision fatigue and the chaotic nature of what’s going on in the world is pushing you to your limits. Use the energies of the week to propel you forward. With relationships, go with the flow. Otherwise, roll up your sleeves and get to work.

New Moon: Choose what’s important

Details: 10/6 Sun & Moon @ 13° Libra at 7:05 am ET

Choose what you want in your life and more importantly, what you don’t want. Enjoy fresh perspectives, evaluate your life by thinking about different outcomes based on decisions you didn’t make. Ask yourself how you can let go of judgment and increase understanding for the unexpected and unknown.  

Week 2: Make adjustments for more fun & success

Dates – 10/11 – 10/17

The good news you’ve been waiting for arrives just in time and you want to celebrate, so make fun plans for the upcoming weekend. In the meantime, focus on the tasks at hand as the energies support everything business this week. After buckling down, you feel energized and want to go out and blow off steam.

The weekend begins with celebration and continues with relaxing energies. There are power plays and crisis that may arise at the end of the weekend, but resist the temptation to personally engage. Instead go with the flow and look for the silver linings.  

Week 3: Prioritize influence

Dates – 10/18 – 10/24 Power plays continue as people are struggling to gain ground that may not be theirs. Take the high road and step into your influence. What potential do you see that’s not being realized? How do you want to make strides in your life against your own desires and wishes and not other’s? What value do you bring and how are other’s appreciating it?

As the Sun enters Scorpio at the end of the week, deep intense feelings arise and power gets center stage. Let these energies drive you to make changes that bring you success through opportunities and influence. Create wealth in your life in a variety of ways.

Full Moon: Stay in your own lane

Details: 10/20 Full Moon @ 10:57 am ET

Personally –

All of the ways you show up or don’t show up for yourself…

All of the ways you’ve given up your goals and dreams for others…

All of the ways you yearn and desire to be in your life versus what you’re currently experiencing…

Worldly –

Chaos and power grabs abound. Nothing seems real and yet everything is intense.

What can you count on?

Things are so uncertain right now.

Ugh.

This is all coming up for you during this Full Moon.

Keep your eyes focused on the future. Look at the long-term and frankly, ignore what isn’t yours and concentrate on changing what is. Use the power to push through on your own path to achieve success. It may not feel satisfying right now, but since you’ve already defined what satisfies you, use your prior clarity to step into your own definition of success.

Week 4: Have fun by going with the flow 

Dates – 10/25 – 10/31

You’re better off letting work take a back seat this week as the stars frustrate forward momentum and reward romance with loved ones and fun with family and friends. Take full advantage of riding the wave of your past efforts and step into a relaxed rhythm. Use your magnetic charm to connect with others for long-term commitment versus short-term gains.

Ignore anything coming up that confuses your relationships at the end of the week. This is fast-moving. Let it pass.

Bottom Line:

How you use your power in relationships is what October is all about. Let go of trying to control everything and lean into influence. Take responsibility for what’s yours and release the rest.  

Remember to use your supportive tools throughout the month.
