Astro week of September 24

harvestmoon2016

September 24th – Full Moon at 2 deg Aries at 7:52pm Pacific.  Starting this week off with the beautiful Harvest Moon. The emphasis is on balance – in our personal lives and partnerships. How do we take care of ourselves and our responsibilities, and share our lives with others? That is the question for all of us. Mars, the ruling planet of Aries, is conjunct the South Node, helping us let go of past patterns and habits that no longer serve us.

Tuesday, Sept. 25th – Moon in Aries, full moon is still in effect. More tests and lessons manifest; especially with the Sun (vision) square Saturn (responsibility). Best way to handle these energies is to focus on YOU, be present with intuitive flashes and let go of the past.

Wednesday, Sept. 26th – Moon void-of-course in Aries ALL DAY! Keep yourself grounded and continue working on things already begun. Get out in nature today and/or be creative.

Thursday, Sept. 27th – Moon in Taurus and Sun trine Mars. It’s easy to manifest ideas and communicate effectively today. Lots of satisfying forward progress can be made, and if you’ve been waiting for a good time to negotiate something, today is the day.

Friday, Sept 28th – Moon in Taurus, void after 3:36pm Pacific. Excellent day for romance, but make your plans early and expect impulsiveness in the evening. The Moon opposes Jupiter in Scorpio which is intense, but can also bring deep wisdom to any romantic tensions.

Saturday, Sept. 29th – Moon in Gemini, Sun in Libra and Mars in Aquarius. GRAND AIR TRINE. Beautiful aspect allowing for huge, positive movement towards wishes fulfilled. Our actions (Mars) are in alignment with our vision (Sun) connecting with us emotionally (Moon), and all in Air signs giving us ideas and clarity. We feel achievement, inner harmony and activation. Pluto stationing overhead helps us evolve and transform into a new version of ourselves.

September 30th – Pluto turns Direct at 18’45 CAP.  A truly remarkable weekend. We will feel this aspect in subtle ways over the coming weeks. Pluto stations can be intense because the events surrounding it often reflect our personal evolutions. The last station was April 22, and Pluto has been retrograde (going backwards) since then. This planet (yes I said PLANET), brings up old, toxic energy to be purged and healed.

When Pluto stations, or stands still in the sky, secrets are revealed and people struggle for power and control. All of this is highly visible on the national stage. Pluto is one of the rulers of Scorpio, and represents core, primal drives within us, like sex. Also the inescapable aspects of being human, like death. In this case however, the “death” is psychological rather than literal 🙂 We touch our potential, and transform into a higher version of ourselves.

 

Virgo New Moon

New Moon at 17 Virgo:  Sunday, September 9th at 11:01am Pacific.

Virgo, the Virgin, is an Earth sign ruled by Mercury. We just came out of a Mercury retrograde, so things are moving forward again after a retrograde summer of delay and introspection.

Many of the planets are in great places right now i.e. in their rulership or exaltation.

Mercury is exalted in Virgo.
Venus in her rulership in Libra.
Mars just went direct; exalted in Capricorn.
Saturn is direct in it’s rulership of Capricorn.

That’s a lot of earthy energy in the skies.

The element Earth is about being practical and manifesting things. With Neptune (the planet of dreams) in it’s natural home of Pisces, we have a wonderful opportunity to turn our dreams into realities. You have to make it real though, and Virgo helps us look at our organization and habits. What is it you want to bring into your life? Are you organized and spending time each day on achieving it?

Virgo is self improvement, details, analysis, planning, perfection and service. We make a practical plan of action to manifest the huge ideas spawned this summer with the Leo sun. Virgo is pure in nature (the Virgin), and is symbolized by a single woman standing alone on her own two feet. Such a powerful image for women today. She is whole unto herself, independent, and can make decisions that actualize her potential.

Virgo integrates; bring the parts together into a whole – but can also be a harsh self critic with the constant striving for perfection. We need to integrate gentleness, self love, and allowing ourselves and others to be imperfect while we walk out practical path of manifestation.

The main thing is to face the reality of your life. If you’re able to do that you can accomplish anything, because the rules of this planet are based in physical reality. Grasping onto fantasies keeps our egos in charge – feeling that we can accomplish things with no effort. We have a spiritual need as humans to surrender our egos and find meaning.

…so see where you’re headed
…do the Work to make your reality better
…take responsibility for how you’ve lived up until now
…start TODAY!

Week of August 27th: Mars Direct

Mars Direct on Monday at 7:05am Pacific.  Things start moving forward again. Our ambitions and desires are reignited and gain traction. Aries and Scorpio people feel reborn anew, and everyone experiences a nice outflowing of energy. If you have something you want to do, there will be less resistance now.

Sunday: Sun trine Uranus + Sun trine Saturn. Time to turn the page on something you’ve outgrown and start a new phase. You cannot conform to other people’s demands anymore on how to live your life. These aspects encourage independence and revolution on an Earth level (money, job, health). Are there some aspects of your basic nature that you have been ignoring? Spend some time creating your personal art.

Monday, August 27  – Moon in Pisces. We are still under the influence of the Full Moon from late Saturday evening. Intuition, creativity and music appreciation are at full volume. Express your artistic passions and reconnect with your spirituality.

Tuesday, August 28 – Moon into Aries at 9:35am. There will be a rush of excitement, and the feeling of rebirth will be rampant today. DO reinvent yourself, but avoid headstrong behavior and confronting strangers. Mars is Direct, but is still stationary over our heads, so passions could be running high. Focus on your ambitions and let go of other people’s dramas.

Wednesday, August 29 – Moon in Aries. A strong Mars day. Take action on anything, really. Focus on teamwork, but if the opportunity arises, take the lead on things. Re-examine your goals and see if you’re on track.

Thursday, August 30 – Moon into Taurus at 6:30pm Pacific. Uranus is also in the area, so expect something sudden appearing out of the blue with regards to work/money. Take practical steps towards achieving your ideas and goals.

Friday, August 31 – Moon in Taurus continues. A strong day for romance and love. Get out into nature and appreciate the earth’s natural beauty. Definitely a date night. Show more interest in what your date wants to do instead of your agenda.

Saturday, September 1 – Moon in Taurus all day too. Get out into the garden, cook a big meal for your friends, go for a hike or have some leisure time with your significant other. Follow established plans and relax.

Sunday, September 2 – Moon in Gemini. Get out and be sociable!

 

 

Full Moon Eclipse in Aquarius

19875474_1909817122633047_7647839705032297020_n

Extremely rare atmospheric phenomenon called rainbow bridge or circumhorizontal arc: when the sun is at least 58º above horizon and ice crystals in clouds form rainbows.

Friday, 1:20pm Pacific: Full Moon Eclipse in Aquarius.

To make the right decisions today, focus on your commitments to friends, groups and plans for the future.  Taking action is a bit trickier though, since the planet of ambition, Mars, is currently going backwards (retrograde ) through Aquarius. In fact Mars, the full Moon Eclipse, and the South Node (the past) are all sitting together at the same point in Aquarius today.

Don’t start anything new or take any risks this weekend. Put your energy towards wrapping up past projects that have been bugging you for awhile. When the South Node is present, it’s the best time to release relationships you’ve outgrown, clean your house, get organized, and finish things. This weekend is great for clearing energy with smudging and bells, doing chores, putting things where they belong, and tackling dusty projects. Nurture yourself with good food and rest.

Sun in Leo (in it’s rulership), is the only celestial body in the right place right now – so connect with healing, leadership, and where your heart is leading you.
Mercury now retrograde in Leo (but currently standing still over our heads.
Venus in Virgo (in her Fall – not happy).

The fires exploding all over California are going to gain in intensity, so be careful driving out there. Look out for big egos, excessive speed, angry drivers. Uranus is squaring the Full Moon, which can cause sudden, unexpected events. The opportunity for creative breakthroughs and revelations about your life could be impactful and life changing.

Mars Retrograde: Jun 26-Aug 27.
Mercury Retrograde: July 26-Aug 18.
Let’s start with Mars.

How have things been in your life the past week? Mars (drive, courage, conflict) is retracing his steps through Aquarius – effecting our ambitions. A Mars retrograde isn’t common, and when it happens each of us needs to refocus our energies inward and solidify the foundations of our plans.  Nourish your body, get some rest, research your path and work behind the scenes.

Men in particular can be very effected by a Mars retrograde. The men in our lives might need more space and quiet time to reflect on their identities and path forward. It’s a time for all of us to be patient with one another, and to seek peace and comfort.

There are seven celestial bodies currently retrograde: Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Pluto, the North Node and Neptune. Mercury will join them July 26th. This means from June 26 through September 6, we’ll have the majority of planets retrograde at once!
The last time our country experienced this many retrogrades was late 1943 and early 1944. These retrogrades (plus upcoming eclipses!) signal a turning point in our lives, our country and the world. In 1943, our planet faced another turning point — the horrors of World War II and the Allied victory.

We stand at a crossroads but we will find direction by focusing on our internal growth. With Mars Retrograde you need to watch your step. Be cautious, and don’t start fights or legal action. It is a solid time to release friendships that you’ve outgrown, or end participation in activities or groups that don’t nourish us.

Prune away those things and people that are hold you down, wish you ill, or have little to offer beyond negativity. Sometimes one must accept when old friendships are truly over and can’t be repaired or “waited out.”

Mars shows up in our physical relationships. It protects and acts in accordance with the Will of our Higher Self. It is the energy and force that demands we fulfill our spiritual path in this life.

New Moon in Aries

img_0536

Aries New Moon at 6:57pm Pacific.

Every year, the New Moon in Aries starts an entirely new astrological cycle for the upcoming twelve months.  This is because Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and the New Moon sparks off new beginnings. Today is a significant day. What would you like to develop this year? What do you want to grow in your life? Today we plant the seeds.

Every new idea or direction starts with a spark of inspiration that activates an individual’s nature. What are you drawn towards? Aries is the spark. It’s the first sign of the zodiac, as well as the first fire sign, and the Sun always transits Aries in the Spring. Fire is the only element that’s a reaction between two elements – it’s not tangible. Fire heats things up, consumes all it touches and spreads quickly. When fire touches the human spirit, we become motivated, inspired and productive. We lead the pack, but we’re also not afraid to stand alone. We become pioneers and explore the fringes of society. We tackle our challenges with a wellspring of drive and energy.

From Empowering Astrology:

“The Aries New Moon is conjunct — astrology speak for in the same position — the planet Uranus. Now, Uranus has been in Aries since 2010-2011, kicking off revolutions both personal and global. We’ve had to start over more than a few times. We’ve had breakthroughs. We’ve had our thinking altered, our consciousness awakened. We’re very different people than we were seven years ago.

This new moon, in many ways, represents a culmination of our work during Uranus’s journey through Aries. Meaning, whatever changes kicked off in 2011, whatever revolutions began, will have their denouement during this lunar month. In short, what you started working toward in 2011 will come to a climax in the coming four weeks. Are you ready for the big reveal?

Even more, the new moon points its energy over to Mars in Capricorn, a sign that injects seriousness and responsibility into the mix. And thank goodness for Capricorn because it’s a sign that’s a bit slow-and-steady-wins-the-race versus Aries’s impulsiveness. Further, Mars is conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, so while we may be pumping the breaks with this new moon, it’s Pluto that’s creating a very hard boundary.
When we put this together, this lunar month will be seeded with powerful new beginnings, one that may draw a line between an old life and a new life. We may feel a rebirth, a transformation from the proverbial fire. We may feel restless and motivated to make a change. Although unpredictable, Uranus has a tendency to show us what’s holding us back and demand we let it go.

Mercury also turns direct on the day of the new moon, adding to an unsteady energy. Information may pour out as a result. Plus, that Mars-Pluto combo has a tendency to be volcanic, pulling up emotions and releasing suppressed energy. If we’re looking for a do over, this is our new moon.
Some tips for working with the energy of this new moon. Again, exercise is your friend this lunar month. Of course, be very aware of your body lest you create an injury. Second, fire needs air, so make sure you’re breathing long deep breaths. Lastly, challenge your thinking of yourself or how you see the world. Try something new, especially if it’s out of your comfort zone.
Another thing to be aware of is that Aries, in its negative expression, has a tendency to be argumentative and aggressive. You may be itching for a fight. You may have a bout of road rage. Try not to burn everything down with this new moon; instead, taking time to meditate or go for a walk. Mars, thankfully has support from Neptune, reminding us to channel the higher expression of Mars — positive breakthroughs and transformation.
Note that Uranus will leave Aries for Taurus on May 15. We’re in the homestretch of a powerful seven year journey to discover our real selves.

 

From Ronnie Pontiac:

In April Chiron will leave Pisces and enter Aries. Most astrologers describe Chiron as the wounded healer. It’s place in our charts is said to indicate our deepest wounds. But Chiron also involves teaching and mentorship, including guidance of the next generation.

Chiron is completing its circuit around the zodiac. Chiron in Pisces suggests wounds caused by religion or by lack of spirituality. A crisis of faith, pervasive cultural rigidity as traditions dissolve, widespread confusion, and nostalgia for the past can make Chiron in Pisces feel like end times.
But the real end time is Chiron in Aries as a new cultural cycle begins. Real hippies will squint at those years 1968 to 1976 because they brought Altamont, glitter rock and disco. The new generation arrives and in some way that generation inaugurates everything that comes after them. The sometimes reckless idealism of the hippies was the end of a forty year cycle, the cynicism of their younger sibs was the beginning of the next. That cycle is now ending.
In April as Chiron enters Aries until 2027, with a couple of backslides into Pisces at first, we can expect breakthroughs in healing, in underground culture, in education. Aries is war and it is possible that Chiron brings the painful catharsis of war. After all, Chiron was a mentor to Achilles the most famous killer in history. But it is also possible that at long last the wounds that cause war receive the attention they need. How health and education are done in our world will be changing more than many of us can imagine.
For each of us this is a good time to survey our history with healing, teaching, and being taught. Come April embrace new methods, new information, new expectations in these areas. Aries sun, moon, or asc people expect major healing ahead. Pisces people hopefully you’ve healed some of those deep wounds since 2010. You won’t be feeling like the crisis is happening in your waters much longer. A question for all of us: what can you appreciate about what Chiron in Pisces has taught you?
