Welcome to the month of October. This month we are guided by the flower Tuberose. What I love about this flowre is her message of dangerous pleasure, it truly evokes the energy of Scorpio season even though we don’t enter Scorpio season until late October. Venus is currently in the sign of Scorpio and Venus is the ruler of Libra thus this energy reflects the evocative tones of the Tuberose.
Truly this essence for the month of October is daring us to live life as though it is our last day, to see the magic and the beauty all around us, to live on the edge of bliss at all times – knowing that the edge of bliss shares the same edge as despair, for what is life without contrast to truly make us feel alive?
The Tuberose is preparing us for the pluging cold depths of the scorpionic oceans we are building towards, the oceans of the subconscious mind that we are reborn from with insights and wisdom found on that knifes edge. It is no coincidence that the Tuberose is one of the most sought after scents for womens fragrances with its lingering, alluring fragrance that we cant help but feel captivated by. She is the night time come alive, Venusian energy under the moonlight.
This month we are seeing the energy of Libra in her night cloak, dancing on the edge of life as she embraces true freedom and harmony with the universe. We have a complex astrological month with planets coming out of retrograde, hard aspects and yet also potent and postive ones, as such only a flower that can hold her own without overpowering our senses is necessary. You can find the complete astrological breakdown for this month here.
The Tuberose is a complex paradox, a flower that brings about peace and calm yet at the same time a flower seen as a traditional flower of the Aztecs to honour the dead and journey to the underworld. She enhances our psychic senses whilst bringing a sense of alluring sensuality and ehances our wealth. This paradox of a flower is the perfect medicine for us to walk with this month with such a vast up and down ride of energies and she can assist you with staying in your centre as you live life on the edge. Happy October everyone xo
