It’s a week of getting real. We start the week with the intensity of the Full Moon in Scorpio, AND one of Scorpio’s rulers, Pluto, stationing retrograde. The full Moon in Scorpio can reveal secrets, clear the air, bring a dose of truth, and reawaken passions. It’s a time of reconnecting with your Soul and why you’ve incarnated on the planet at this time. Scorpio reveals mysteries and tells the truth.

We are currently harvesting what we began last November, when the Sun was in Scorpio. The energies of this Full Moon will unfold over the week ahead, and the next six months. We will have peak experiences with passion, personal evolution, sexuality, and occult philosophies. Our relationship with ourself is mirrored in our relationships with other people, so be aware if you’re projecting authority, criticism or appreciation outside of yourself. Remember, finding peace and fullfilment is an inside job, you can’t find it outside of yourself. Practice some self validation.

On the other side of the sky, the Sun moves through Taurus, soon to catch up with Uranus. With Taurus, we build our passions into something tangible and real. Taurus asks us to show up, consolidate our resources, and create sustainable structures in our lives. With Uranus there, we can try different approaches. Taurus is physical beauty – the loveliness of Spring and unfolding of flowers. What’s the state of your health and your body right now?

All the planets have been moving Direct for several weeks, but Pluto is changing direction on Tuesday. It’s a good week for caution, because Pluto is a higher vibration of Mars and can bring volatility. If a part of your life has been neglected for awhile, Pluto stationing can create a crisis or breakdown. Use the energy for healing and restructuring instead.

Both Taurus and Pluto contain treasures and gold, but these are riches that can only be found by going within. What is your gold? What makes you valuable? We can go within and find it this week.

Monday, April 26th: Full Moon in Scorpio 8:32pm Pacific. Definitely stay out of trouble today. People can be quick to anger, especially with Pluto standing still overhead. NOT a good day for risk taking. Don’t go to protests or be in situations that can get out of hand. Watch for power struggles.

Tuesday, April 27th: Full Moon in Scorpio in strong effect, so avoid social complications. Conversely, it’s also a good time to set boundaries (calmly). Pluto stations retrograde around 1pm Pacific, adding to the intensity and “do or die” attitude. We take stock of our lives, identify what needs attention and reform, and begin a plan.

Wednesday, April 28th: Moon moves into Sagittarius at 8:42am Pacific. Today is for rebirthing and transformation. Pluto stationing overhead is very present and could feel heavy, despite the adventurous moon.

Thursday, April 29th: Moon in Sagittarius, plus some wonderful sextiles. The mood finally lightens from the intensity and soul searching of the full Moon. Revisit your goals and update your plan to achieve them. Past lessons and flashes of the future could appear with the Moon conjunct the South Node, so watch for markers and insights.

Friday, April 30th: Moon into Capricorn at 9:15am Pacific. Sun conjunct Uranus brings breakthroughs, revolution and the desire for freedom. Be open to revelations about your life and sudden surprises. Try a different approach to places where you’re blocked and accept invitations for adventures.

Saturday, May 1st: Moon in Capricorn on a Saturday is great for saturnian Magick, i.e. discipline, structure and committment. Moon makes a couple of trines today with Uranus and the Sun in Taurus, which can bring a pleasant activation to the ordeals of last Monday and Tuesday.

Sunday, May 2nd: Moon void-of-course, then into Aquarius at 12:30pm Pacific. There’s some truly lovely aspects today involving Venus, Mercury and Pluto. They will enhance communications and creativity, so enjoy the great vibe. Our minds and feelings will clarify our direction. With Pluto in the mix we can have real heart to heart communications with loved ones. Have a deep conversation. Get to the core of what matters most to you now.

The Paschal full moon is the first full moon of spring

“Palm Sunday, March 28 brings us the first full moon of the new spring season: the Paschal full moon. The official moment that the moon will turn full is 2:48 p.m. EDT (1848 GMT).

Traditional names for the full moons of the year are found in some publications such as The Farmers’ Almanac. We also published the full list of full moon names here on Space.com earlier this year. The origins of these names date back a few hundred years to Native American tribes, though they may also have evolved from old England or, as astronomy author Guy Ottewell, suggests, “writer’s fancy.” 

The Paschal full moon of spring is also the mirror-image of the full Harvest Moon of autumn. What sets the Harvest Moon apart from the others is that instead of rising at its normal average of 50 minutes later each day, it seems to rise at nearly the same time for several nights. 

In direct contrast to the Harvest Moon, the Paschal Full Moon appears to rise considerably later each night. Below we’ve provided some examples for ten North American cities.”

On Saturday, March 20, the Sun entered Aries and we had the Spring Equinox (equal day equal night). With the Sun freshly in Aries, we begin a brand new astrological year! 2020 is officially over, and we have a new start in life. This week, the Moon is in her 2nd quarter, and we are building to a Full Moon on Sunday, March 28th. This Moon represents the culmination of what’s been building up in March.

The Full Moon in Libra is symbolized by The Scales, and usually appears around the Spring Equinox. The Sun in Aries symbolizes the “self” and individuality, and it’s opposite, Libra, represents balance, fairness, relationships, equality and justice. Libra is the sign where we have to deal with Other People, so all of our relationships and partnerships will be highlighted this week. We will all be hammering out new, balanced agreements in our partnerships.

The Sun will be in a conjunction with Venus and Chiron on this Full Moon too, healing our deepest wound. The Sun wants to advance, so with Venus and Chiron involved, we shine brighter as we undertake our soul’s purpose. Self love can be understood on a new level. Also, Mars will conjunct the North Node, giving new fuel to our future direction and plans. The Sun and Venus will move through the sky together in Aries for the next two weeks.

Venus just entered Aries on Sunday. She’s only there once every 18 months, so Aries people will have lovely, harmonious and sociable birthdays this year. Since Venus rules Taurus and Libra, these signs are starting a new cycle though the zodiac. Anyone born in those signs will experience an even stronger rebirth then the rest of us.

Also on Sunday, Mars trine Saturn was exact. Anything requiring discipline, physicality or structure can get a huge boost from this aspect. Go to the gym and start regular exercise this week. If you need focus to finish a languishing project, this is the week to reignite the passion. What’s the most efficient way to apply your time and energy?

Monday, March 22nd: The Moon in Cancer, occurring on a Monday, is VERY fortuitous for Moon Magick. Waxing Moon. If you want to increase your intutiveness, nurturing, self care, or improve your relationships with women, your Mom or roommates – today is the day. Blue for peace. The energy of the week begins in this sensitive, sweet and emotional place. Honor whatever feelings are coming up today and let your emotions guide you.

Tuesday, March 23rd: Moon void-of-course in Cancer most of the day, and enters Leo at 2:56pm Pacific. Step carefully around people’s feelings. The Moon between Cancer and Leo is a VERY sensitive place, and if someone’s feelings get hurt they can hold a grudge for a long time. Cancer is the sign of the home, so it’s good day to relax, declutter, and cook a special meal. People will be sensitive, so no big conversations until tomorrow.

Wednesday, March 24th: Moon in Leo. Stand out and be seen! Seek concessions from authority. We are also under the influence of Mars in exact square to Mercury, so be careful of aggresiveness and thoughtlessness in your communications. Think things through CAREFULLY before speaking your truth.

Thursday, March 25th: Moon void-of-course in Leo ALL DAY! Let your creative side out to play. The Sun and Venus conjunct in the middle of the night, bringing positive feelings and expansiveness to beauty, romance and art.

Friday, March 26th: Moon in Virgo and Sun conjunct Venus. Things will be fuzzy and undefined thanks to Mercury (Virgo’s ruler) floundering through his detriment in Pisces. Use your intuition instead. Great evening for a walk under the Full Moon with someone you love… or someone you want to get to know.

Saturday, March 27th: Moon void-of-course in Virgo at 4:48pm Pacific, and stays void all evening. Avoid pettiness, pickiness and over analysis. We are in the orb of the Full Moon so things could start getting intense or extreme, Meditation is a great way to focus the mind and manage any anxiety around this moon. Clean and reorganize your house!

Sunday, March 28th: Full Moon in Libra at 11:48am Pacific. Romance is in the air. We can have positive conversations and work out agreements with people. The focus is on playing fair and taking everyone’s feelings into account. Work towards win-win situations. Also Sunday, Venus conjunct Chiron is exact, which can spark a crisis that brings enormous healing. If something comes up try and focus on the brighter possibilities of what could emerge down the road.

Full Moon in Virgo

Poster for Louis Feuillade’s 1915 film ‘Les Vampires’ a movie which the artist Pablo Picasso was rather obsessed with at one point as he went to see the movie a few times…..

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 3 Pisces
Mercury at 12 Aquarius
Venus at 25 Aquarius
Mars at 23 Taurus
Jupiter at 14 Aquarius
Saturn at 7 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune at 19 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto at 25 Capricorn
North Node at 16 Gemini

A Full Moon in Virgo is symbolized by a virgin. Virgo is the High Priestess with a sword. She’s a woman that stands alone because she can take care of herself. She has the wisdom to use her sword (her mind) in an accurate and efficient way that creates a practical, forward path. It’s full moon week, and we will experience the culmination of what’s been building up in February. We are also on the Sun in Pisces/Full Moon in Virgo axis, which means we are healing. Virgo heals the body and Pisces heals the soul.

However, we STILL have five planets in Aquarius! Saturn and Jupiter will be there for awhile, but Mercury and Venus are moving fast and Venus will be in Pisces this week. Saturn in Aquarius squares Uranus in Taurus all year long. This square represents a subtle, deep tension between your old patterns, and who you are becoming. The first exact one happened last week. Interesting that Aquarius rules electricity, Taurus is land and resources, and we had a huge power outage in Texas last week with people freezing in their homes. I was so sad to see this happen.

Saturn is the planet of karma, and this is a time of sowing and reaping. You might be aware that you have a fresh, new version of yourself waiting in the wings. It’s waiting to manifest, you just need to embrace it and own it, when you’re ready. Your new self will appear in the houses of your chart that are ruled by Aquarius or Taurus, and will be unfolding this year. I can feel it happening in my own life.

Monday, February 22nd: The Moon in Cancer starts the week off in a sensitive, sweet and emotional place. This moon wants to be introverted and secure, so honor whatever feelings are coming up today. Let your emotions guide you. Neptune will also move to 20 Pisces which adds to the watery, intuitive vibe. Try not to future-trip.

Tuesday, February 23rd: Moon in Cancer continues. You can’t think your way through things right now, you have to FEEL your way to find the path. Cancer is the sign of the home, so it’s good day to relax, declutter, and cook a special meal. People will be sensitive, so no big conversations until tomorrow.

Wednesday, February 24th: Moon in Leo. Stand out and be seen! Seek concessions from authority. We are in the orb of the Full Moon so things could start getting intense or extreme, especially with Mars trining Pluto today too. This aspect can fire up tempers so practice caution in unstable situations.

Thursday, February 25th: Moon in Leo and Venus enters Pisces! Venus is exalted in Pisces so it’s a great time for romance. Let your creative side out to play. Venus also rules friendships, money, women, art and relationships. All of these things get a nice boost over the next few weeks so make the most of it.

Friday, February 26th: Moon in Virgo all day, but doesn’t go full until the middle of the night. The full moon will oppose Venus newly in Pisces in the middle of the day. Things will sharpen up and become very clear, thanks to Virgo enhanced by Mercury Direct. Great evening for a walk under the Full Moon with someone you love… or someone you want to get to know.

Saturday, February 27th: Full Moon in Virgo happens in the middle of the night at 12:15am, but it’s in effect all weekend. Avoid pettiness, pickiness and over analysis. Meditation is a great way to focus the mind and manage any anxiety around this moon. Clean and reorganize your house!

Sunday, February 28th: Moon in Virgo, then into Libra at 11:17am. Friday’s date night continues… great day to have positive conversations and work out agreements with people. The focus is on playing fair and taking everyone’s feelings into account.

Week of December 21st: Winter Solstice

“Druids Cutting the Mistletoe on the Sixth Day of the Moon” by Henri Paul Motte (France, c.1900)

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 0 Capricorn
Mercury at 0 Capricorn
Venus at 5 Sagittarius
Mars at 23 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter at 0 Aquarius
Saturn at 0 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune at 18 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto at 23 Capricorn
North Node at 19 Gemini

NOTE: I’ve set up a new Patreon page! Yay! If you’d like these posts delivered straight to your inbox every Sunday evening, feel free to join here, it’s only $4 a month: https://www.patreon.com/LizRose93

Tonight, Sunday, December 20th, 2020 is Winter Solstice eve. It is the longest night of the year. Tomorrow morning at dawn, 7:21am Pacific, the Sun rises on the new year. This is because the days grow longer from this point on until the climax at the longest day on June 21st, 2021. Important to think about what you’d like to “grow” in the New Year. Christmas tree lights symbolize finding hope in times of darkness.

That’s the main undercurrent of what’s happening right now: REBIRTH. There’s also the Great Conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter at 0 Aquarius, which is a huge event. lt underlines this rebirth of the Sun. Saturn has been in Capricorn, it’s natural home, for the last 2.5 years, exposing materialism, lack of integrity, and the misuse of power. With Saturn’s entrance into Aquarius, our society will be completely transformed, perhaps leaning towards the promised utopia of Aquarius.

We’re already experiencing some of this shift in the form of lockdowns – Saturn limiting our social (Aquarius) connections. Also, working remotely (Saturn) online (Aquarius). 

There’s also aspects happening that are resetting us for 2021:

  1. Mercury conjunct the Sun (combust) at 0 Capricorn.
  2. Pluto at 23 Capricorn exactly square Mars (which is conjunct Eris at 23 Aries).
  3. Week starts with the Moon at 23 Pisces.
  4. The Saturn/Jupiter conjunction enters a square to Uranus in Taurus, and it will be in effect through 2022. 

These squares between these specific planets can bring fighting and conflict, so be cautious in the world.

Monday, December 21st: Moon void in Pisces, into Aries at 2:32pm Pacific. WINTER SOLSTICE. Sun enters Capricorn at 2am Pacific. This morning’s sunrise sees the rebirth of the Sun. This is one of the most magical days of the year. Immerse yourself in the wonderful, fresh energies alive in the air today. The Sky King (Jupiter) spreads his wings (Aquarius) and escapes the Earth (Capricorn). All of the cooped-up, earthbound energy of the last two years is shaken off, and we have a new path before us of freedom.

Tuesday, December 22nd: Moon in Aries adds to the feeling of rebirth! Put plans into action, but be aware people won’t be all that patient, or listen well. Drive cautiously.

Wednesday, December 23rd: Moon in Aries, but void-of-course at 2:51pm Pacific. Try to avoid signing anything or having important conversations during a void Moon. This is a volatile day, since the Moon conjuncts Mars and Black Moon Lilith, and Mars square Pluto is exact. Tests might come up around your identity. The best use of this energy is setting boundaries where needed, but watch out for irritation and anger. Today begins the final squares of Mars/Eris to Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter. Tempers will be testy through February 2021. Be cautious driving.

Thursday, December 24th: Christmas Eve. Moon in Taurus. Things slow waaaay down today and we indulge in sensual delights. Although you may be stuck at home and away from your families this year, get yourself an excellent dinner. Taurus loves food.

Friday, December 25th: Christmas Day. Moon in Taurus. Slow, quiet day. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. Get outside today and appreciate nature.

Saturday, December 26th: Moon void-of-course at the end of Taurus all day, and then into Gemini at 3:33pm Pacific. Energy picks up as the Moon trines the lovely Saturn/Jupiter conjunction in Aquarius, so expect some communication or insight into your future path.

Sunday, December 27th: Moon in Gemini. Very chatty day full of socializing and online purchases. We are two days from a Full Moon in Cancer, so walk cautiously around people’s feelings.

Week of November 23rd

Sword and Rose by Raoul Vitale

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 3 Sagittarius
Mercury at 17 Scorpio (telling secrets)
Venus at 2 Scorpio (debilitated)
Mars at 15 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter at 24 Capricorn (fall, very weak)
Saturn at 27 Capricorn (rulership)
Neptune RETROGRADE at 18 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto at 23 Capricorn
North Node at 20 Gemini

The Sun has finished it’s travels through Scorpio, and we’ve officially entered the sign of Sagittarius, the Archer. For the next month, we will be reassessing our Truth, and aligning ourselves with new meaning and purpose. The Archer chooses a goal, and focuses her energy there before releasing her arrow. Now is the time to examine our goals, and prioritize what is most important to us.

We’ve been through SO much transformation this year, and most of us are feeling exhausted… but we aren’t out of the woods yet. Jupiter and Pluto joined together a couple of weeks ago, and now Jupiter is on it’s way to catch up with Saturn at the end of December. Once that last conjunction happens, and these planets begin to move into Aquarius, things will start to turn a corner.

This week is manageable, but also a gradual build up to our fifth eclipse of the year, a lunar eclipse next Monday, November 30th in Gemini. During an eclipse, hidden issues arise and come to light to be handled – and since it’s a Full Moon – the issues are emotional in nature.

Also, the planet Neptune is at a stop all week, about to turn Direct this Saturday in Pisces. This will heighten our intuition, but also contribute to brain fog, fatigue, and feelings of being lost. If you feel these things just relax into it and stay in the present moment. Neptune is great for creativity and spiritual pursuits, so put your energy there.

Monday, November 23rd: Moon in Pisces. Moon in a water sign makes this an emotional and spiritual start to the week. Pisces makes things fuzzy and undefined… not the best day for negotiation. Mercury trine Neptune at 8:40pm Pacific encourages healing through inspiration, imagination and spiritual strength.

Tuesday, November 24th: Moon in Aries chases Mars, and also trines the Sun newly in Sagittarius. It’s a wonderful, fiery day, so be careful about emotional outbursts or headstrong behavior. It’s a creative day full of ideas!

Wednesday, November 25th: Moon in Aries, and conjuncts Mars and Black Moon Lilith. Tests might come up around your identity. The best use of this energy is setting boundaries where needed.

Thursday, November 26th: THANKSGIVING! Moon void-of-course in Aries at 3:45pm Pacific, then slows waaaay down as it enters Taurus at 7:43pm. Even though many of us will be away from our families this year, it will still be a day of feasting, overindulgence and sensory delights. Live it up!

Friday, November 27th: Moon in Taurus. We are in the realm of the Full Moon eclipse on Monday, November 30th, so things could be getting intense. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. Get outside today and appreciate nature. Very passionate date night.

Saturday, November 28th: Moon at the end of Taurus and Neptune stationing Direct. Love, beauty, passion, commitment, nature, animals, and the Divine Feminine are the energies to focus on this weekend. Look back to June 23rd, when Neptune went retrograde, to see what themes have arisen for you from this transit. When Neptune is stationary there’s two paths we can take: the first is inspiration, clear dreams, heightened intuition, and mystical revelations. The other path is escapism, leading to illusions, hyper-sensitivity, drama, and over indulgence in substances. Try not to overindulge in alcohol, drugs, sugar, shopping, etc.

Sunday, November 29th: Moon in Gemini. Very chatty day full of socializing and online purchases. The Full Moon Eclipse is tomorrow, so no big decisions today.

Full Moon Halloween

Happy Witches New Year! Full Moon at 7:49am Pacific Halloween morning. A Full Moon in Taurus is sensual, exalted, indulgent and grounded. Normally we would go for nature hikes and eat comfort food, but Uranus is conjunct (together) with this Full Moon which brings revolutionary changes. Your eyes will be opened this weekend, and revelations will fill your mind. It will feel good because you’ll have some questions finally answered that have been hanging around for the last couple of years.

Uranus (awakening) first went into the sign of Taurus in May 2018, and it’s shaken up our perspectives on money, family, health and self esteem. Uranus hasn’t been in Taurus since the 1930’s, and it will be there for a few more years. Tomorrow’s full moon brings this transit front and center, so you can clearly see how Uranus in Taurus is effecting your life. You can see what this time is about.

The full moon today clarifies a new sense of self worth and value, and brings the start of a new life. The Scorpio Sun clarifies your internal boundaries, and shows where you personally draw the line to protect your new, inherent value.

Mercury in a perfect square to Saturn suggests you will turn a corner in how you communicate from your new, personal reality; AND the Sun opposes Uranus, which underlines self liberation. Any person or situation that challenges your new perspective will be released. We’ve made a decision to change on the inside, and it will have a positive effect on how we live in the world.

Week of October 26th: Halloween

“Death” tarot card by Salvador Dali

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 4 Scorpio
Mercury RETROGRADE at 2 Scorpio
Venus at 28 Virgo
Mars RETROGRADE at 16 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter at 20 Capricorn (fall, very weak)
Saturn at 25 Capricorn (rulership)
Neptune RETROGRADE at 18 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto at 22 Capricorn
North Node at 22 Gemini

Crossroads. This is the week leading up to Halloween; a primal festival with ancient roots. You can feel it in your bones. It is the last harvest festival of the year, the witches new year, and the last night before the fairies go underground for the winter. The boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead is at it’s thinnest point for the next several weeks.

Halloween is one of the year’s four cross-quarter holidays, and marks the midway point between the autumnal equinox and the winter solstice. However, True Halloween occurs when the Sun reaches 15 degrees Scorpio, which is usually around November 7th. The Sun went into Scorpio last week, and we are officially in the season of death and rebirth.

Last week we released an old relationship pattern that no longer worked for us, and this week we begin a deep dive into exploring our passions, healing psychological wounds and uncovering hidden agendas. Sun in Scorpio represents honesty and passion, and wherever it appears in your chart is where you walk fearlessly through the shadows to find passion and treasure.

Monday, October 26th: Moon in Pisces. Sun and Moon in water signs makes this an emotional and spiritual start to the week. Take a break if you have to, so you can find your true feeling about a situation, and then express this honestly in your communications. Moon in Pisces allows for self forgiveness, abstract thoughts and creativity.

Tuesday, October 27th: Moon in Pisces, Mercury and Venus BOTH enter Libra! Yay! It’s rare for two planets to enter a sign at the same time – and from opposite ends. Mercury backs out of Scorpio and lands on the last degree of Libra, rehashing situations from the last week of September. Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) get some pleasant avenues opening up as Venus arrives at 0 Libra.

Wednesday, October 28th: Moon in Aries. Watch out for head strong behavior or taking on more than you can handle. The best use of this energy is handling situations that take courage and strength, and setting boundaries.

Thursday, October 29th: Moon in Aries conjuncts Mars and Black Moon Lilith. Tests might come up around your identity and who you are becoming. Best to go slow and stay present with yourself so you can respond properly in the moment. Each of us has a new way of being, and a new life, but with Mars still retrograde, it’s not the time to push forward yet.

Friday, October 30th: All Hallows Eve. Moon VOC, then entering Taurus at 2:19pm Pacific. We are in the realm of Halloween and the orb of the Full Moon. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. It’s a sensual full moon near Black Moon Lilith, so equality and respect are demanded. Very passionate night.

Saturday, October 31st: Halloween. Full (Blue) Moon at 8 Taurus at 7:49am Pacific. Love, beauty, passion, commitment, nature, animals, and the Divine Feminine are the energies to focus on this weekend. Try and avoid power struggles, control issues and obsession. Pushiness and bullying will get you nowhere. Listen to others, respect their wishes and look to the common good. Taurus wants us all to be healthy and secure, so trick or treating will be on hold this year.

Sunday, November 1st: Witches New Year. Sun in Scorpio/Moon in Taurus. The phoenix rises from the ashes. Day to take stock, rest, and decide where to focus your energies for the coming Winter.

Week of September 28th

Valentine Cameron Prinsep – At the First Touch of Winter, Summer Fades Away, 1897

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 6 Libra
Mercury at 1 Scorpio
Venus at 25 Leo
Mars RETROGRADE at 25 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter DIRECT at 17 Capricorn (fall, very weak)
Saturn STATIONING at 25 Capricorn (rulership)
Neptune RETROGRADE at 19 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 22 Capricorn
North Node at 23 Gemini

Can you feel the weight of Saturn? It is the planet of reality, discipline, responsibility, karma, and time, and it is currently standing still in the skies over the East Coast of the United States. Saturn in Capricorn is stationing (standing still), and turned Direct on Monday (9/28). We will feel the weight of this all week. If you have any planets around 25 degrees in any cardinal sign, you will be STRONGLY effected by the energy of this event.

On top of that, Saturn (patriarchy) is in a tight square with an aggressive group of planets near 25 Aries – Eris (discord), Mars (courage and assertiveness) and Lilith (rebellion). Female empowerment is greatly enhanced from this configuration. This square will bring up issues around leadership and control, and could bring violence this week.

Far eastern beliefs and practices state that we are surrounded by impermanence; that the only thing that is truly ours is the beauty of the present moment. Everyone and everything we know will eventually turn into something else. This the way of the world and the archetype of the Fall season. Our planet, society and personal lives are in a state of huge transition, and the best we can do is approach our challenges with love. Appreciate the people around you and the blessings you have in your life.

Monday, September 28th: Moon in Pisces. Mercury also entered Scorpio yesterday, bringing great depth and honesty to communications. Our minds are refocused and our powers of concentration are heightened. Moon in Pisces trines Mercury today, allowing us to express abstract thoughts in a clear way. With Saturn stationing Direct tonight, practice mindfulness and discipline.

Tuesday, September 29th: Moon in Pisces, Saturn stations Direct in Capricorn. Any Earth sign folks should be feeling a new sense of security today, but any Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra) could get a reality check on their grand designs. With the Moon in Pisces, meditate and contemplate your life. Music and spirituality soothe the soul and ignite our imaginations. Great night to play or listen to music and make art.

Wednesday, September 30th: Moon VOC in Pisces. No big decisions or important conversations with authority. I would avoid that until next week if possible. Follow your intuition, go with the flow, and make time for solitude.

Thursday, October 1st: Full Moon in Aries. Watch for messages from the Universe about your identity, and your experience of evolutionary shifts. Each of us is changing and evolving into new, upgraded version. Each of us has a new way of being, and a new life. Focus your ambition and drive towards things you want to accomplish.

Friday, October 2nd: Moon In Aries, and Venus into Virgo. We are still feeling energetic, and good progress can be made now. Aries is the sign of individuality, so it’s all about YOU. Venus in Virgo is in it’s fall – which is one of the most difficult placements for the planet to express itself. Instead of art, put energy into organization.

Saturday, October 3rd: Moon in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn stationing. Evolution, research, reformation and healing are the energies to focus on this weekend. Venus and Pluto are in tense placement this weekend, which can bring difficulties in relationships. Try and avoid power struggles, control issues and obsession. Pushiness and bullying will get you nowhere. Listen to others, respect their wishes and look to the common good.

Sunday, October 4th: Moon in Taurus and Pluto Stationing Direct in Capricorn. The phoenix rises from the ashes. Eris, the planet of discord is in the sign of Aries, the Individual.
