Re: Rosicrucian principles: there are cycles throughout the year based on your birthday that are YOUR cycles. Your new year is your birthday. Anything that happens at the same time period each year is most likely based on YOUR cycle. I know there are other pages better describing this (mine are in book form) but this will do for now. Map out your birthday into these cycles and most likely you'll understand why October is for you what it is. For instance - October is my power month and always has been. All good things happen - I feel as myself in my peak self and I'm suspecting that we have very different birthdays. lol
I just asked an elder and she said that the cycle through October also means the darkening of days. Each day, as we ease toward winter, there is less and less light throughout October and it reveals some things and makes others harder to see. That doesn't account, necessarily, for your negative experiences during October, though, and I think the yearly Rosicrucian cycles will illuminate that better.
