E-Light Newsletter

Welcome to E-Light - the Crystal Herbs Newsletter - October 2021

Dear Friends,

We have had some beautiful golden days of autumn sunshine here in Norfolk over the last few weeks which have encouraged the roses and late blooming flowers in our garden to continue to provide a wonderful display of colours. It has been something to enjoy as we gradually put the garden to bed for the winter months that are now clearly just around the corner.

As the daylight hours shorten more it will be good to rest up, hibernate for a while and take some time to plan what we need to grow for next year’s mother tincture making. Time vanishes so quickly these days spring will be here before we know it!

In E-Light this Month: the Energies of October, Momentum, New & Full Moon, Help from Arcturus, Energies of Libra, Your Choices are Important, Essence Suggestions for October & our latest Special Offers and News.

All of the Essences, articles and special offers mentioned in this newsletter can be found on our web site at - www.crystalherbs.com

The Energies of October

The cosmic line up for October is powerful and will bring us a month of energetic intensity building towards the full moon on October 20th.

There are threads in the energies this month that will bring opposing viewpoints to the fore very obviously. There may be angry words over the need for greater fairness and equality in society as well as tension between those that want freedom and truth versus those that want to maintain the status quo of authority and control.

This is the beginning of a time where suppression of truth will not be so possible and what has previously been hidden and kept secret will become visible for all to see.

Change of Momentum

We have four planets changing direction from retrograde to forward movement this month which we could well experience as an increased intensity of fast-moving events.

Pluto turns direct on October 6th, turning the spotlight onto finances and power & control issues. Saturn goes direct on October 10th, highlighting restricted freedoms, human rights, and social responsibility. When Jupiter turns direct in Aquarius on October 17th, it will stimulate visionary social planning that includes freedom, truth, and equality. Finally, Mercury will turn direct on October 18th, bringing greater clarity and forward flow.

New Moon

The new moon was on October 6th in Libra where there was already much other planetary activity so you may well have found this to be quite an intense period. Themes particularly stimulated at this new moon were the need for fairness, justice, and freedom for all.

Full Moon

On October 20th we have one of the most powerful full moons of the year, exact at 2.56pm UK time. At this full moon the Sun and Mars in Libra will be opposing the Moon and dwarf planet Eris in Aries, squared by Pluto in Capricorn.

This is assertive, aggressive, warrior energy which has its focus on social change and evolution. It will feel intense and could stimulate angry, forceful emotions as ideologies clash. It is also very action orientated energy so make sure that any actions that you choose to make around this time are based in love and resonate with the reality that you want to experience.

This is also awakening energy that will stimulate many more people to wake up and remember who they are and why they are here at this time.

Help from Arcturus

Just prior to this full moon from October 17th to 19th the Earth will be in direct alignment with the star Arcturus. The evolved beings that live on Arcturus are very much involved with the plan for Earth’s evolution and will be transmitting light codes and blessings of love, compassion and higher understandings over this period. Take time out to connect and receive what is being gifted around this time.

The Energies of Libra

Virgo Symbol

Each year during October the sun shines onto the Earth through the constellation of Libra, magnifying its energetic influence, and providing an energetic backdrop for all the other planetary alignments and influences in the cosmic line-up for the month.

Astrologically Libra is represented by the sign of the scales and its airy energy brings a focus to the balancing of opposites and an emphasis to the qualities of harmony, balance, justice, and fairness in all areas of life.

At a higher level this energy holds a positive template that we can draw upon, to help us upgrade, restructure and evolve our experience of relating, both internally and externally. Something we can all agree is much needed in our world right now.


The cosmic line up for October is powerful and will bring us a month of energetic intensity building towards the full moon on October 20th

Your Choices are Important

It is clear then, that the energies this month will be both powerful and intense with a focus on promoting change and transformation at all levels.

The themes that are illuminated over the coming weeks will be ones that we will be continuing to work with for some time to come. It is very likely that we will begin to see some third dimensional systems and structures beginning to fail more visibly because they cannot continue to function in the old ways.

This may look messy and a bit concerning if we do not keep in mind that the way has to be cleared before anything new can flourish and grow. If you were going to build a new house where an old one had stood before, you would have to demolish what was left of the old one before you could start rebuilding. The energies this month have a ‘demolition’ aspect to them that may well increase the already cracked facades of structures and institutions that are struggling. How we choose to position ourselves in relation to these changes is important.

Firstly, celebrate because all of the work that has been done by so many of us to bring about a change in consciousness within ourselves is now beginning to impact the outer world in obvious ways. The universe has our back on this and the planetary line up this month will be assisting in every way it can to encourage positive change in the outer world.

Secondly, remember that solutions always come from a higher perspective than the one that created the problem in the first place. Our vibrational frequency is what determines our perspective and our version of reality so pay close attention to what reality you are feeding with your thoughts and feelings. Connect with people that you resonate with vibrationally so that you can support each other to energise just what you want to experience rather than focus on the drama of change.

Discernment & Neutrality

The energies this month are likely to exacerbate already inflamed arguments over what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’. However, new solutions to old arguments are most unlikely to be found from within the argument itself. If we are to avoid being sucked into an old polarity within which there are no new answers to be found it is important that we are very discerning about how we respond to such situations.

Practice just observing a heated situation from a neutral place – there are many to choose from right now so finding one will not be too difficult. Without any judgement simply discern the level of awareness or belief system that is driving the issue. If the predominant belief system in play is based on third dimensional understandings about how the world works then recognise that those involved are unlikely to be able to see beyond the all-consuming argument just at the moment. A change in vibrational frequency and a corresponding shift in perspective will be needed for this to happen.

The good news is that the vibrational frequency of the Earth has risen exponentially over the last little while and the expansion of consciousness available to incarnated humans is now off the scale compared to what has been possible in the past. Those that do not appear to ‘get it’ now will likely do so shortly.

Our job is to focus on creating and holding a vibrational space that will allow for new solutions and possibilities to become visible. This month allow your intuition to guide you in how you can best contribute to this. It is possible that there are areas of your life that will need to change in order for you to best accomplish what you want to bring forward. Allow your heart to be the guide here and flow with any changes needed as gracefully as possible.

Remember the universe has your back and will be supporting you every step of the way, provided you align your vibrational frequency with the new energy flow.

Peace Rose Flower

Essence Suggestions for October

The energetic flow this month is fiery, intense, and powerful in nature so there will be a need for us to be very discerning about how we respond to it. The need for action or to fight our corner may seem very compelling but it might be wiser to take a moment to breath and check in to make sure that every part of ourselves is in alignment with the action we are about to take.

The vibrational frequencies that we choose as motives for actions will be the threads that weave our experience of ‘reality’ so it is important that we choose with discernment and a degree of neutrality. Our Essence Suggestions this month are designed to provide support with this.

Discernment & Neutrality

Let’s start with some essences to support our ability to stay neutral enough to be discerning about what is right for us.

The starting place here is a strong sense of your own personal energetic space and the ability to stay centred within it. This can sometimes be challenging when the energies of the collective are very volatile as they are at the moment. A Solar Plexus Chakra combination would be very supportive in this situation. Also consider an Auric Protection Spray; safe boundaries or a Protected combination from the Inner child Essences.

When you feel comfortable in your energetic space it is easier to connect with your inner knowing/guidance for direction. Check out Soul Connection; enlightenment, Inner Wisdom; connecting heart & mind, Causal Body or Energetic Alignment Spray; soul connection, for support with this.

When we need to operate in our own energetic space, from our own guidance we can sometimes find ourselves facing a level of uncertainty and fear about whether what we feel is right for us is actually the best thing to do, especially if those around us do not appear to share the same perspective.

An Inner Certainty; transforming doubt combination, followed by an Inner Calm; transforming fear will be helpful in this situation. If you find yourself struggling to get clarity for yourself on a particular situation then the Clarity & Perspective Spray; clearing confusion might be just what you need this month.

Listening to your Heart

Just taking a little time to yourself this month to sit in your heart space and connect with the unconditional love within it will keep you in vibrational alignment with a more expanded reality. Essences that will support you with this are Heart Chakra, Unconditional Love, Awakening the Heart and the Heart Connection Spray; living in love.


Libran energy tends to bring a focus to relating in all of its various aspects. With so much change in the air at the moment we may well find ourselves faced with the need to make adjustments in our relationships this month. If you should find yourself in this situation, check out the following essences to see which will best support you; Letting Go; dissolving attachment, Healing Relationships; restoring intimacy & trust, Loving Communication; honest self-expression, or Healing Family; resolving family issues.

Bach Flower Remedies

Finally, a reminder of how helpful a well-chosen combination of Bach Flower Remedies can be in times of energetic intensity. These wonderful rebalancing tools will quickly ease acute emotionally states and help to restore a degree of balance and harmony so that you can see what you are dealing with more easily.

Remember that Bach Flower Remedies need to be taken consistently and often to get the best from them.  A good adult dose is 4 drops on the tongue taken at least 8 x a day, however in acute situations take doses more often until balance is restored.
