This week, we are building up to the Full Moon at 29 Pisces, which will happen next Monday, September 20th. This is the last week we have with the Sun in Virgo. The Sun moves through the last degrees of Virgo, and into Libra next Wednesday, Sept. 22nd. This will be the Fall Equinox – equal day and equal night – the great balance. More on that next Sunday.
This is a quiet week astrologically, but we are moving towards Mercury going retrograde on September 26th, and the intensity of the Saturn and Pluto stations of early October. This could bring up more issues with the pandemic – perhaps another surge. Saturn and Pluto were the planets that began the pandemic in January 2020. When they change direction, the foundations of our lives, and their stability, become apparent.
Monday, September 13th: Moon in Sagittarius enters it’s second quarter. There’s a ton of aspects with the Moon today, so there will be a huge amount of information and energy flying around. Just roll with it. People will be in a happy, optimistic mood with the Moon in Sag, so we begin the week on a good note.
Tuesday, September 14th: Moon in Capricorn. The Sun in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces today, which can bring confusion. Use your instincts, and take other people’s resolutions with a grain of salt. Avoid overindulging in alcohol, food or shopping as ways to handle stress. Mars goes into Libra in the afternoon, which is the sign of it’s detriment. It will be there for a few weeks, and during that time we could find difficulties with advancement. Be patient with men too.
Wednesday, September 15th: Moon in Capricorn, and the beginning of Yom Kippur. The Moon is uncomfortable and heavy here, and authorities can be rigid and uncaring. Energy is hard to get off the ground, control issues arise, along with power struggles. Moon conjuncts Pluto in the middle of the night, giving us intense dreams. Put some lavender under your pillow tonight and try to remember them.
Thursday, September 16th: Moon in Aquarius trines Mars newly in Libra – which could bring up productive conversations in relationships. Don’t expect a lot from men though, because Mars (their representation) is very uncomfortable in Libra. Sun tines Pluto in the early evening, which brings messages about our soul’s current evolution. Sun trine Pluto is powerful, because our Star, the Sun, is connecting harmoniously with Pluto in the outer reaches of our solar system. Look at the big picture, decide where you want to go, and release anything standing in your way.
Friday, September 17th: Moon in Aquarius squares Venus in Scorpio and conjuncts Saturn in the middle of the night, giving some heaviness and intensity to our dreams. This is just a prelude to the main event of the day: Venus in Scorpio square Saturn in Aquarius. There could be a reality check, or wake up call, in the arenas of love and art. A square means you have to put some work into progressing. Also, stay away from protests and marches this weekend. Seriously. They may not turn out well with this aspect as a backdrop.
Saturday, September 18th: Moon void-of-course all morning in Aquarius, then enters Pisces at 1:22pm Pacific. It’s a floaty type of day; great for dreaming and water adventures. Go swimming, or just sit at the beach and dream. The main thing is we are all psychically open right now, so be around trustworthy and authentic people. We are in the orb of the Full Moon coming Monday evening, so keep a low profile.
Sunday, September 19th: Moon in Pisces trines Venus in Scorpio, and sextiles Uranus in Taurus in the afternoon. The Pisces/Scorpio/Taurus combination is great for expressing one’s imagination. Be creative today, and let your instincts speak. Uranus activates our genius, and gives rise to sudden revelations and events.
