I remember being a pre-teen and noticing that I always loved — like, irrationally loved — October.

My birthday’s not in October. Yeah, Halloween is my favorite holiday but that wasn’t the reason… in fact, by *late* October, I’m not as excited by October as I always seemed to be, charging into it. And it’s not as though I was swooning over back-to-school season, since being back in school was old news by October 1st.

I saw the pattern but I really wanted to know: Why did October always fill me with SO MUCH ENERGY?!?

And then I learned the reason why. It’s got everything to do with my first house.

No… not where I *lived* as a child. I’m talking about how I learned the power of my freakin’ birthday + birthtime + birthplace in setting the TONE for every single month of my life.


In October, when the sun is in my first house, I am most myself. I am connected with my life’s purpose. I am whole. I am inspired. I am LIT UP by all that my life is. Everything CLICKS.

Once that pattern got clear, I started getting curious about all sorts of other patterns in my year.

Sure enough, in April, my focus is all about partnership. Romantic, business, friendship, one-on-one work. And OF COURSE our very best times of year for truly firing up my clients and really turbo charging *their* wildest dreams has lined up with that seventh house sun situation.

As for seeing my own career all lit up? That’s a July situation. It’s when the tier jumps happen like whoa. Because the sun is in my tenth house, saying, “Hey! Gillespie! Step UP!” (and I do. Especially now that I know the rhythm of all of this).

Y’all know I love to track patterns, so it didn’t take long in my young life to notice months that ALWAYS drag or feel harder (hello, months of shadow work [eighth house, in May], value-based undercurrents [second house, in November], and secrets [twelfth house, in September]).

But when I started focusing — and scheduling — my energy into GROWTH activities that are aligned with the way the astrology of my birth factors into what’s happening right now, I turned money months into MASSIVE money months. (And stopped stressing in the months that simply aren’t as likely to attract new money; in those months, the passive machine purring in the background is enough.)

I turned relationship months into UPGRADING relationship months. I turned health months into HEALING months. I turned education months into MASTERY months.

Basically, with this knowing, I can rig my calendar with the power of the woo to be the BEST version of me possible… and on Friday I’m going to teach you how to do this. ๐Ÿ™‚ FREE!

    2021 is a 9 Year for me. It is so fascinating looking back at previous 9 years. In 1994 I got engaged (broke it off the next year). In 2003 I got engaged (got married the next year). Gave me a real laugh seeing how I was getting engaged every nine years until it stuck. Lol!

    1. Bonnie Gillespie December 20, 2020 at 7:27 pm

      Aren’t the patterns FUN?!? ๐Ÿ™‚ So good having you on the Zoom today. You’re doing great! Pace yourself; there’s a lot to this.

    Just finished the replay… my houses were all in the same signs as yours, Bonnie, which made it VERY easy to follow along! I’ve always LOVED fall and feel super energized in October, too… now I know why!

    Does the house each sign is in say something about how you handle those specific things or is it more about the time of year you focus on them? For example, if my 7th house is in Aries does it mean I am energetic/outgoing in my relationships? Or would that have more to do with where my Venus is (Virgo, 12th house = analytical, secretive)?

    1. Bonnie Gillespie December 20, 2020 at 7:27 pm

      These are great questions, Madalyn, and the answer is: all of that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      So, your 7th house being in Aries means you are individualistic and out for #1 when it comes to partnerships (vs. a sign like Cancer, for example, which would be all about making the other person feel taken care of; Aries does not have that agenda).

      And your Venus in Virgo, in the 12th house, indicates a POV of love and values and beauty that can be critical (Virgo) and secretive (12th house), which of course affects your partnerships but also all other areas of your life in which love, values, and beauty come to the party. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I love that you’re loving this! Hope you’ll join us in Aligned Advantage when going deeper feels good to you!
