🪐 View Planet Parade in December 🪐

Observers from the Earth will have a chance to spot the planet parade at the beginning of December. Five planets will gather in one sky area:
🌟 Venus (-4.7m)
🌟 Saturn (0.9m)
🌟 Jupiter (-1.8 )
🌟 Neptun (7.7)
🌟 Uranus (6.0)

The dwarf planet Ceres (6.9), a large asteroid Pallas (7.6), and the Moon (-11.4) will settle nearby.

The best time to observe them is December 12, 2021; look for the celestial objects right after sunset. Venus, Saturn, Jupiter, and the Moon will be visible to the naked eye. A pair of binoculars or a small telescope will help you to see the dimmer Neptune, Uranus, Ceres, and Pallas. 🔭

  • Although there is now an official scientific definition of the term “planet parade,” astronomers use it to denote an astronomical event that happens when Solar System planets line up in the same sky area as seen from the Earth.

The Sun moves through the last degrees of Scorpio this week, culminating with an ECLIPSE/Full Moon THIS Thursday night at 27 Taurus. That’s a LOT of force and power, but it’s also trine to Pluto over in Capricorn. This energy encourages transformation and spiritual evolution. You are evolving, especially in the material, earthy sides of your life. Pluto doesn’t leave us a choice either – it’s something you have to do. This lunar eclipse lets you access the deepest darkest parts of your subconscious – bringing them to the light – in order to eliminate fear and heal past trauma. This Moon brings peak experiences with beauty, health, relationships, money, home, job and survival. Taurus is a money sign, and indicates prosperity and love. Since this Full Moon takes place in the last degrees of Taurus, we are completing a personal cycle of growth, and something new is about to begin. The Sun enters Sagittarius next Sunday.

The last month has been a deep dive into exploring our ambitions, healing psychological wounds and uncovering hidden agendas. Sun in Scorpio represents personal power and the truth, and wherever it appears in your chart is where you fearlessly walk through the shadows to find the treasure within you.

There’s a bunch of big aspects this week leading up to the Eclipse, but the trickiest one is the tense and disruptive Mars in Scorpio opposing Uranus in Taurus. It started yesterday with Mercury opposing Uranus; this brings a nervous edge to communications through Tuesday. With Mars opposing Uranus, instincts are heightened and there can be sudden breathroughs. We might have revelations or anxiety, or have a strong urge towards liberation.

Monday, December 15th: Moon in Aries makes us fiesty! Sun and Moon in Mars-ruled signs gives us a driven and ambitious start to the week. We each have a direct line to our Will and can make good progress. Avoid headstrong, risky behavior, or engaging in power plays with others. Watch out for taking on more than you can handle.

Sun in Scorpio squares Jupiter in Aquarius: Look out for over-confidence and arrogance. We each need to do some boundary-setting between our emotions and the needs of our friends. Grab opportunities today and try not to overindulge in anything (Jupiter).

Tuesday, December 16th: Moon in Aries is void-of-course at 7:51am, then void ALL DAY until 6:18pm Pacific when she enters Taurus. No negotiating or risk taking today! Instead, work on your personal goals and health. 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 manifesting.

Wednesday, December 17th: Moon in Taurus. Mars in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus, asking us to reconcile our passions with our resources – in a way that liberates us. Moon trines Venus, accentuating the earthy, sensual, Taurus vibe, and moves on to conjunct Uranus. We are in the orb of the Full Moon tomorrow night. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. It’s a sensual full moon. Very passionate night.

Thursday, December 18th: Full Moon and ECLIPSE at 11:00pm Pacific in Taurus makes a couple of tense aspects today with Mercury and Jupiter. Mercury in Scorpio also trines Neptune in Pisces in the morning, which brings our minds and instincts into a wonderful, watery harmony. Good aspect for creativity and deep connections with others. The Full Moon brings love, beauty, passion, commitment, nature, animals, and the Divine Feminine. 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.

Friday, December 19th: Moon in Gemini. We are in still in the the orb of the Full Moon, but today we are socializing and talking endlessly about it. Mind the details of your life. Venus trines Uranus in the middle of the night, bringing sudden, (hopefully positive) developments to relationships. The Moon in Gemini will help us communicate openly about our feelings.

Saturday, December 20th: Moon in Gemini continues yesterday’s conversations. Today we have Mercury in Scorpio squaring Jupiter in Aquarius, which brings a serious tone to the day. We set boundaries with friends or groups through our thinking and communications. We can find real meaning in our relationships, because Mercury in Scorpio favors deep understanding between people.

Sunday, December 21st: Moon void-of-course in Gemini all day, entering Cancer at 7:30pm Pacific. Sun into SAGITTARIUS at 6:30pm. We enter a new energy field in the fire sign of the Centaur. Take stock and think about setting some goals. Sagittarius is the sign of the Archer, and he likes to aim at a target. Where will you focus your energies for the coming Winter?

December 6th was Krampusnacht! Yay! I hope to go to Austria someday and see it in person…

Last Friday night we started a brand new path in our lives. We had a New Moon Eclipse in Sagittarius, bringing up issues of expansion, inner truth, wisdom, justice, adventure and luck. This eclipse will continue to unfold this week. It sets the tone for this whole month’s lunar cycle. Look to where you want to rebirth yourself, and put all of your focus there.

This week, Mercury is hiding behind the Sun, as they continue their travels through Sagittarius. This can bring extremes to our thinking – either we think too much and over analyze, or we don’t think at all. Try to find a happy medium. The big aspect this week is Venus conjuncting Pluto at 24 degrees Capricorn. If you have any planets at 24 Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn, they will be exponentionally activated this week. This conjunction inspires deep evolution in our relationships, romances, and artistic endeavors, AND it will be continuing until MARCH!! Could bring obsessiveness, catharsis, transformation and healing.

Monday, December 6th: Moon in Capricorn makes five aspects today including a trine with Uranus in Taurus, and conjunctions with Venus and Pluto. Watch for signs today about the major relationship shifts coming in the next few months. Authority figures are in charge today, and power plays or control issues could come up. Ground yourself through working hard, especially on things you’ve been avoiding. Could be an intense evening.

Tuesday, December 7th: Moon in Aquarius. Do things today that help you feel grounded. Mercury in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces in the early morning. This aspect makes our minds foggy, and makes the facts of any situation hard to grasp. Things will be clearer in the next couple of days, so postpone important decisions or conversations. Lots of electricity and ideas in the air.

Wednesday, December 8th: Moon in Aquarius. Mars squares Jupiter in the middle of the night, which means we need to find an agreement between our drives and our ideals. When we bring them into alignment, we turn a corner. This is a revolutionary day, and there could many changes and developments. Slow down and take everything one step at a time, and step carefully around people’s egos. Also, Aquarius means to let your creative genius out to play, and to connect with friends and groups of folks.

Thursday, December 9th: Moon in Pisces makes a lovely conjunction with Jupiter in the middle of the night. Pisces means “go with the flow”. Today is good for listening to lots of music, taking a boat ride, and using your senses. There’s also a Moon square Mars in the early morning which can bring underlying tensions to the surface. With the Mercury hidden in the fires of the Sun, it can be difficult to talk your way through issues. Use your intuition.

Friday, December 10th: Moon in Pisces enters her 2nd quarter. If an issue comes up, go with your gut instincts. Excellent day for psychic impressions, imagination, watery activities, or being wildly creative. Swim around with your intuitions and ideas. The watery, musical, loving vibe is enhanced by the Moon’s conjunction with Neptune in the early afternoon.

Saturday, December 11th: Moon goes void-of-course in Pisces at 11:20am, then into Aries at 1:46pm Pacific. Today is the BIG conjunction between Venus and Pluto at 24 Capricorn! With this aspect, and the Moon entering Aries, watch for tempers flaring. Avoid ego stand offs. We are being called to evolve and regenerate our relationships, so practice giving, receiving and sharing. Implement new ideas and approaches.

Sunday, December 12th: Moon in Aries gives us fresh energy and perspective. The Sun squares Neptune in the middle of the night which can bring confusion to our day. The best use of this energy is to focus on creativity and soul expression. Forget your worries and have some FUN!!

We are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle, preparing for the New Moon at 12 Sagittarius on Friday night. AND it’s a solar eclipse! Let yourself rest this week, and take time to reflect on how you’d like the upcoming Moon cycle to go. If you need a personal reading on how this Sagittarian cycle will effect you, you can book a short reading with me here for $45.

This week we are letting go of things, wrapping stuff up, paying off debts, and clearing our lives of stagnant energy. The Sun has left the deep waters of Scorpio, and is now traveling through the early degrees of Sagittarius, the fiery wild horse! It’s a big energy shift from water to fire, and we’re all feeling uplifted. Straight ahead is the New Moon, giving us a fresh start. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the great and benevolent King. He dispenses wealth, luck, optimism, fortune, and wisdom. We could all use a good dose of Jupiter these days.

And there’s more good news…. there are several trines and sextiles this week between the Sun, Chiron, Mars, Neptune and Mercury. Each one is a beautiful release of positive energy and growth. Mars and Venus are traveling at the same speed right now too, and in a perfect sextile. Let yourself feel optimistic this week, sieze opportunities that appear, and know that the Universe is finally giving us a break.

Monday, November 29th: Moon in Libra. The Sun and Mercury had an exact conjunction yesterday at 6 Sagittarius, and will be traveling together all week. This is called “combust”, and means our intellect can get lost in our passions and egos, OR we think too much. Rely on instincts this week. Mars trine Neptune in the predawn hours is a joyful balance of opposites. Our intuition is ignited and the path forward is clear. It’s a great way to start the week. Let yourself be optimistic, and watch for opportunities.

Tuesday, November 30th: Moon in Libra makes a bunch of aspects today, but that’s nothing compared to the three major sextiles happening! This will be a lovely, harmonious day, but can turn serious as the Moon approaches Scorpio after 6:00pm Pacific. Still, the day is glowing with creativity. Mercury sextiles Saturn (focused mind), Venus sextiles Neptune (compassion and love), and Sun sextiles Saturn (concrete intention).

Wednesday, December 1st: Moon in Scorpio. Neptune stations Direct in Pisces today, so things could be VERY unclear and foggy. If you feel lost don’t worry, things will clear up soon. Neptune can bring spiritual strength, or the desire to escape reality. Nurture yourself and your inspiration. This is definitely the day to REST or be creative.

Thursday, December 2nd: Moon in Scorpio makes five different positive aspects today, so the good news keeps coming. Expect occult experiences and deep conversations with people. Moon trines Neptune, activating the lovely-watery-creative-Neptune vibe. Embrace compassion with people, and let your dreams fly. Moon’s conjunction with Mars gives us the impulse to work hard on our ideas.

Friday, December 3rd: New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius at 11:43pm Pacific. This Moon brings out the truth and adjusts our life perspective. Sagittarius is a wild, liberated, adventurous sign with high ideals. The Centaur wants us to look at our goals, because it’s the sign of the Archer! What are you aiming yourself at?

Saturday, December 4th: New Moon in Sagittarius continues! Mercury is conjunct the New Moon as well, bringing our minds into this shift. Rebirth your thinking to be more positive – especially self talk. This lovely energy. Make a lot of time for adventures and fun.

Sunday, December 5th: Moon in Capricorn is heavy, and the demands of the upcoming week could weigh on us today. Capricorn sours the expansive Sagittarian vibe, so today will be about making progress with challenging work, or getting chores done. Our attention turns towards our ambitions and money goals. Remember, the mountain goat can step carefully through seemingly impossible terrain, so remain undaunted by obstacles and forge ahead.

Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. It’s a sensual full moon. Very passionate night.

Thursday, November 18th: Full Moon and ECLIPSE at 11:00pm Pacific in Taurus makes a couple of tense aspects today with Mercury and Jupiter. Mercury in Scorpio also trines Neptune in Pisces in the morning, which brings our minds and instincts into a wonderful, watery harmony. Good aspect for creativity and deep connections with others.

We are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle, preparing for the New Moon in Scorpio on Thursday. Lots of feelings could be coming up so we can release them. Rest and give yourself time to reflect on how you’d like the upcoming Moon cycle to go. If you’d like a personal reading on how this Scorpio cycle will effect you, you can book a short reading with me here for $45.

There’s a new life staring you in the face this week, but to find it you have to let go of something first. Scorpio is ruled by Mars, the warrior god of strength, courage, boundaries, assertiveness, men, justice, and action. Mars square Saturn is getting stronger right now, becoming exact on Nov 10, which happens to be the day that Mars opposition Uranus begins, getting stronger, until exact on Nov 17.

Mars encourages us to….

Look at our goals. Are they in alignment with your true and highest self? Also, do you have any goals?

Assess our ambitions, life path and direction. It is a time to think about our actions, and whether they are aligned with the life and world we want to create.

Look at our energy and drive, because they are valuable. Is your current job or project worth what you’re spending the time on? Do you need to make a change?

Letting go, releasing, death, and rebirth are the Scorpion themes of the upcoming Moon month. With Scorpio, we are reaching out to deeply connect with things outside of ourselves. It’s a good time to check in and see if you are putting the right energy into your friendships and love relationships. For those who refuse to change the difficulties are going to get worse. For others, it’s a time of opportunity in a new world.

Monday, November 1st: Moon in Virgo is void-of-course at 10am, then into Libra 4:11pm Pacific. We’re feeling the happy and fun effects of the Mercury-Jupiter trine last night. Life feels really good right now! It’s a great way to start the week. Let yourself be optimistic, and watch for opportunities.

Tuesday, November 2nd: Moon in Libra. Mercury squares Pluto in the predawn hours, and the mood changes.There’s a serious tone to the day. Moon trine Saturn adds to the heaviness. We are in the realm of Thursday’s New Moon in Scorpio, so the edge of a pending rebirth is evident. Seek out healing. Try and remember the dreams you have, because they contain messages for you.

Wednesday, November 3rd: Moon in Libra, into Scorpio at 5:52pm Pacific. It’s a busy day, with the Moon making five different aspects. There’s a trine with Jupiter, square with Pluto, conjunction with Mercury and sextile with Venus. This means we are emotionally processing a lot of recent growth in our thinking and life events. Moon in Scorpio means to do Magick! This is a portal towards the deep Fall. Even though Halloween is over, the veil between the worlds is thin, and we can see spirits. The intensity of the upcoming New Moon can be felt today.

Thursday, November 4th: New Moon in Scorpio at 2:15pm. This New Moon squares Saturn, continuing Tuesday’s heaviness. The big aspect though, is the New Moon exactly opposing Uranus over in Taurus. This can bring eccentric people into your life, OR cause sudden, liberating events. Relationships will be strongly effected by this aspect. Try to see the other person’s point of view and be flexible. Expect occult experiences and deep conversations with people. Something in our life needs to die so a new life can be born.

Friday, November 5th: Moon in Scorpio goes void-of-course at 9:10am, then into Sagittarius at 5:52pm Pacific. During a void period, especially in Scorpio, avoid conflict or risk. The Moon trines Neptune and squares Jupiter today, so follow your instincts. Remain flexible, stay in the present, and be creative if you have time. This Moon brings out the truth, but also makes people sensitive, so avoid social complications.

Venus enters Capricorn at 3:44 AM This can add a challenging but stabilizing dose of reality to relationships and artistic pursuits. Hard work and committment is favored for the next several weeks. Loyalty with our partners, friends and family is a good thing to practice right now, and can deepen the foundations of relationships.

Mercury enters Scorpio at 3:35 PM Communications become deep, intense, serious and transformative. There are no more trivialities for the next few weeks. Our minds think strategically, and we are able to see the psychological underpinnings of any situation. Healing is favored along with strength, and an unwavering view of our shadow sides.

Saturday, November 6th: Moon in Sagittarius makes a couple of minor aspects, but the bigger influence is Mercury sextile Venus in the morning. This connection brings positive communication and progress with work and relationships. Make use of this lovely energy. Make a lot of time for adventures and fun.

Sunday, November 7th: Moon in Sagittarius is void ALL DAY, then enters Capricorn at 5:00pm. Another long void period! Avoid being spontaneous or impulsive today. Capricorn sours the expansive Sagittarian vibe, so today will be about making progress with challenging work, or getting chores done.

Week of October 25th

We begin this week in the third quarter of the Moon, turning into a fallow Moon on Thursday. The Sun has moved into Scorpio, and Halloween is upon us! With this waning Moon, we have an opportunity to release psychological blocks – specifically beliefs that stand in the way of our personal power. That’s the top tier Scorpio stuff. After Thursday, we are wrapping things up, finishing projects and adjusting to new conditions.

With Scorpio season and the Fall, our mood changes and we become more self-reflective, focused, and perceptive. Scorpio is regeneration, healing, transformation, rebirth, sex, and the occult. For the next month we will be raising our self esteem, spiritual connection, and definement of space.

Monday, October 25th: Moon void-of-course in Gemini, then into Cancer at 2:00pm Pacific. Don’t sign anything or make big decisions during the void period, just follow already made plans. There are three LOVELY trines today too, with Jupiter, Mars and the Sun. These trines bring an industrious, happy and expansive vibe to the day. The Gemini Moon increases the desire for social connection, and brings lots of activity in general.

Tuesday, October 26th: Moon in Cancer makes a couple aspects, but the big news today is Venus in Sagittarius squaring Neptune in Pisces. Disillusionment can show up, so don’t make any quick judgements about people or situations. Let things unfold a little more. Try not to overindulge in anything too. The Cancer Moon brings a need for solitude and reflection, so nurture yourself. Moon in Cancer is in her rulership, and insights into our feelings can be very healing at the time.

Wednesday, October 27th: Moon in Cancer makes five different aspects, including an opposition with Pluto around 3:00pm. This could bring repressed emotions and fears to the surface, driving us towards security. If something comes up, just be aware of what’s going on and take care of yourself. The only true security is within you and your decisions. Use your instincts. Try to hang out at home and eat a good meal.

Thursday,  October 28th: Moon in Leo enters her 4th quarter, and we begin a week of rest and reflection. The Moon makes a couple of squares, and one tough opposition with Saturn in Aquarius around 4:00pm. However, any hard edges to the day will be softened by Venus in Sagittarius sextile to Jupiter in Aquarius. This is a fabulous aspect, encouraging all of us to relax, have fun, make art, and celebrate life.

Friday,  October 29thMoon in Leo makes a couple minor aspects with the Uranus and Mercury, but the main energy of the day is LEO, and “what are you going to wear for Halloween”. Make an impact. It’s a heart-centered day, excellent for rendevous and parties. Great evening to go on dates or see performances.

Saturday, October 30thMoon void-of-course in Leo, then into Virgo at 11:09am Pacific. Don’t sign any agreements or buy anything important before 11:00am. Lots of Moon aspects today, plus Mars the Warrior moves into his natural home of Scorpio in the early morning. Men will feel more at ease and confident, and all of us will have a renewed strength to set boundaries and empower ourselves. There’s also big square between the Sun in Scorpio and Saturn in Aquarius in the predawn hours. This can bring tension with authority figures for the next several days.

Sunday,  October 31st: Moon in Virgo isn’t the sexiest placement for Halloween fun, but we can still have a good time, it just might feel more “orderly” and planned out. There will be more tricks than treats with the Moon’s trine with Uranus in Taurus in the late morning. Of course today is good for tidying up the house, running errands, and getting ready for the week ahead. Halloween arrives with a fun Mercury trine Jupiter.

Week of October 4th: New Moon in Libra

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 12 Libra (in it’s fall, no Sun Magick now)
Mercury RETROGRADE at 20 Libra

Autumn has arrived, the veil between the worlds is getting thinner, and the darkness approaches. We have a transformative week before us. We are currently in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle, preparing for the New Moon in Libra on Wednesday. Lots of old feelings and issues could be coming up, so we can release them. Rest and give yourself time to reflect on how you’d like the upcoming Moon cycle to go. If you’d like a personal reading on how this Libra cycle will effect you, you can book a short reading with me here for $45.

Libra is ruled by Venus, the powerful goddess of love, relationships and art. This New Moon on Wednesday is conjunct the Sun and Mars, which greatly amplifies it’s power. With the Sun and Mars traveling so closely together, our ambitions are aligned with our Souls, and we can find new meaning through our actions.

Finding balance and justice are the Libran themes of the upcoming Moon month. The signs of Aries through Virgo are mostly concerned with the “Self”; Libra is the first point of the zodiac where we encounter other people, and relationships come to the forefront. It’s a good time to check in and see if you are putting out the right energy in your friendships and love relationships. Are you working as part of a team? Are you sharing attention, healing and nurturing? What is standing in your way of being a better partner?

The deep deep undercurrent is Pluto AND Saturn standing still (stationary) over the East Coast of the United States. Both of these heavyweights turn Direct this week, which can bring pessimism, “do or die” attitudes, intensity and moodiness. Pluto brings deep evolution in a way you can’t avoid. You gotta do it. All of our repressed, toxic energy comes up to be released. Pluto is death and rebirth.

Saturn wants you to grow up and be an adult, so maturity is another theme coming up this week. Saturn is structures, time and responsibility. How to use this energy: Look for old structures in your life that you have outgrown and let them go. Once Saturn goes Direct, you can rebuild them in a more thoughtful and conscious way.

Monday, October 4th: Moon in Virgo makes four aspects today. It’s a great way to start the week, because Virgo has us getting organized and handling things we’ve been avoiding. Our focus is on order and health. Pluto is standing still in the sky, like a sentry standing guard over us and our evolution. The intensity of the upcoming New Moon can be felt today.

Tuesday, October 5th: Moon in Libra trines Saturn in the early evening. We are in the realm of tomorrow’s New Moon in Libra, so relationship energy is very strong today, We seek balance; if our life has been one-sided, we are very aware of it. Try and remember the dreams you have tonight, because they contain messages of new growth. The cusp of rebirth.

Wednesday, October 6th: New Moon in Libra at 5:05am Pacific. This Moon is conjunct Mars, which can bring up issues with balance, assertiveness, relationships, men, justice, and action. The Moon also makes six different aspects today! We will be feeling the effects of this transformational New Moon for a long time. With Mercury retrograde, and Venus in Scorpio (detriment), be cautious and strategic with relationships and communications. Pluto in Capricorn also goes Direct at 11:30am.

Thursday, October 7th: Moon in Scorpio squares Pluto and Saturn, continuing yesterday’s heaviness. More information comes out about the issues of the week. The focus is on fairness, balance and justice. Try to see the other person’s point of view and be flexible. Agreements will be hard won. Thank goodness Venus moves into Sagittarius today. This lightens the mood tremendously. Also today:
Mars and the Sun conjunct in Libra: Our ego may want to rule the roost, so don’t be a bully; practice patience and tolerance.

Friday, October 8th: Moon in Scorpio opposes Uranus, trines Neptune and squares Jupiter. Remain flexible, stay in the present, and be creative if you have time.
Remember, with a Scorpio Moon, it’s great to visit the ocean, or hang out by a pool. This Moon brings out the truth, but also makes people sensitive, so avoid social complications. With the Moon in Scorpio it’s a witchy day. If a boundary needs to be set, today is the day.

Saturday, October 9th: Moon in Sagittarius makes three aspects, but the bigger influence is the Sun, Mercury and Mars dancing around together in Libra. They are traveling closely and conjuncting each other today. Positive communication and progress with work and relationships. Make use of this lovely energy. Let men have the last word today.

Sunday, October 10th: Moon in Sagittarius makes four minor aspects, but has a square with Neptune around 7pm… the same moment Saturn in Aquarius goes DIRECT. Yikes. Watch for major reality checks today, and fantasies being popped like balloons. Make use of this heavy, Saturnian energy by making progress with challenging work, or getting chores done.

Astrological week

Autumn has arrived, the veil between the worlds is getting thinner, and the darkness approaches. We have a transformative week before us. We are currently in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle, preparing for the New Moon in Libra on Wednesday. Lots of old feelings and issues could be coming up, so we can release them. Rest and give yourself time to reflect on how you’d like the upcoming Moon cycle to go. If you’d like a personal reading on how this Libra cycle will effect you, you can book a short reading with me here for $45.

We begin this week with a balsamic, fallow Moon, building towards a New Moon in Libra on Wednesday, October 6th. Leading up to this New Moon, we have an opportunity to release our relationship blocks – especially romantic ones. The planets Venus (women) and Mars (men) are both in their detriments right now, which means they are unable to express their natures. Everyone is going through some new growth challenges. The dark of the Moon, leading up to a New Moon in Libra, is a time for self examination about what you are projecting onto your partner. Also, we are wrapping things up, finishing projects and adjusting to new conditions.

Mercury is stopped in the sky, and went retrograde at 25 Libra on Sunday. With six planets now retrograde, this is an appropriate time for looking back. Also, Saturn and Pluto are slowing down, preparing to go Direct next week, which can make everything feel very real, and put some of us in survival mode. Be patient and open to learning how to live a better life, because Saturn wants us to “level up”. If you have difficult work to do (that you’ve been putting off), or decision to make, now is the time.

Monday, September 27th: Moon in Gemini makes two big aspects today: square to Neptune and trine to Mars. We start the week with lots of chatty, social energy, but the square to Neptune can have us living in daydreams. Use the teamwork vibe of Mars in Libra to get things done.

Tuesday, September 28th: Moon in Cancer enters her 4th quarter, and we are in the dark of the Moon. This is a week of rest. No big aspects today, so take it easy and take care of your emotional needs. Moon in Cancer is in her rulership, and insights into our feelings can be very healing at the time.

Wednesday, September 29th: Moon in Cancer, and two BIG aspects: Venus trines Neptune in Pisces, and the Sun in Libra trines Saturn. The Venus trine makes us dreamy, creative and imaginative. Use your instincts. The Sun trine brings delight to hard work, and we can make solid progress with meaningful projects. It’s a great day. The Cancer Moon, could bring a need for solitude and reflection. Give yourself what you need.

Thursday,  September 30th: Moon void-of-course in Cancer ALL DAY, until she enters Leo at 5:53pm Pacific. With a Cancer Moon void, do things that increase your feeling of security. No big risks today, and avoid getting into squabbles with people, because they will be hyper sensitive. Try to hang out at home and eat a good meal. There’s also a bunch of Moon aspects, but the big event today is Venus in Scorpio squaring Jupiter in Aquarius. There could be disillusionment with a relationship. Don’t make any big decisions until November though.

Friday,  October 1stMoon in Leo makes aspects with the Sun, Mars and an opposition with Uranus. We’ll all be feeling pretty good today, but expect eccentric, strange surprises with the opposition around 7:30pm. Great evening to see performances, or engage in heart-centered activities.

Saturday, October 2ndMoon in Leo goes void-of-course at 4:43pm and stays void all evening. Before that, the Moon makes a ton of different aspects, including an opposition to Jupiter and a square to Venus. It’s a rapidly shifting day.

Sunday,  October 3rd: Moon in Virgo, and Mercury in Libra trines Jupiter in Aquarius around 5pm. Of course today is good for tidying up the house, running errands, and fixing anything broken. Toss stuff out and let things go – someone else can use it.

We began this week with a New Moon at 14 Virgo, which occurred Monday and continues to unfold today. We are inspired to clean up our lives and get everything in order. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the winged messenger of thought and communication. With the Sun and Mercury so close together, our minds are at their peak, and we can be decisive. The decisions you make now, determine your future path.

Virgo means to discern, analyze, discriminate and assimilate (which is why I posted the picture of the cell). We need to take care of ourselves and each other. Virgo is a sign of health, work, and being of service. We are preparing to enter ‘relationships’ when the Sun goes into Libra on September 22nd. How we enter the world needs to be thought out, planned and disciplined in Virgo.

The floods last week from hurricane Ida were catastrophic for so many people. Last week, the Moon in Cancer was trining Neptune in Pisces, while Neptune opposed Mars. Neptune and Pisces signify water, the collective unconscious, tidal waves, chaos, the ocean, intuition, surrender, and connection with the divine. With Mars opposing, it can turn into a huge, violent storm. It’s overwhelming, and can bring destruction, anger, and violence in it’s wake. I believe the catastrophe of this storm was brought about by climate change, and enhanced planetarily. I hope relief will come with this New Moon.

Monday, September 6th: New Moon in Virgo at 5:52pm Pacific today! Virgo is the High Priestess of Reality. She is an Earth sign ruled by Mercury. The Earth is our physical body. How is your health right now? What can you do to support your health and be stronger? Besides the fabulous New Moon energy, there is a whole slew of major aspects today! Huge shifts are happening:
Mars in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn at exactly 24 degrees. Our energy is boosted.
Venus in Libra trines Jupiter in Aquarius – romantic, artistic, lovely energy.
Sun in Virgo trines Uranus in Taurus – this magnifies the New Moon energy, and brings inspiration, ideas, and revolutionary thinking.
Mars inconjunct Jupiter – could bring health-related crisis

Tuesday, September 7th: Virgo Moon goes void-of-course at 12:24pm, then enters Libra at 8:20pm Pacific. That is a very long void period! Follow already laid plans and avoid taking risks during this time. The New Moon in Virgo energy is still very strong today, especially with all of those major aspects. Our focus is on order and health. Moon conjunct Mars during the void period inspires us to action and ambition.

Wednesday, September 8th: Moon in Libra all day makes a lovely trine with Saturn, and then conjunction with Mercury. Lots of good “airy” energy today if you feel inspired to create some Mercury Magick. A simple thing to do is to light a yellow candle to clear and inspire your mind. This is one of the last Wednesdays to do real Mercury Magick for this year, so make good use of it.

Thursday, September 9th: Moon in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn in the afternoon. There could be a continuation of whatever event happened on Sunday – maybe further conversation or developments. The focus will be on fairness, balance and justice. Try to see the other person’s point of view and be flexible. Agreements will be hard won.

Friday, September 10th: Moon in Scorpio AND Venus into Scorpio at 1:39pm Pacific, which is the sign of her detriment. We are entering a tough few weeks for relationships – as well as for beauty and art-related areas. Let women have the last word while Venus transits Scorpio. Moon square Saturn in the afternoon makes us agree to reality-based ideas.
Remember, with a Scorpio Moon, visit the ocean, or hang out by a pool. This Moon brings out the truth, but also makes people sensitive, so avoid social complications. With the Moon in Scorpio it’s a witchy day. Remember, if a boundary needs to be set, today is the day.

Saturday, September 11th: Moon in Scorpio makes five aspects today, giving us opportunities for deep, emotional growth. Scorpio is the sign of healing, rebirth, transformation and regeneration, so it’s a good placement for the 20 year rememberance of 911. The only challenge comes from the Moon squaring Jupiter in Aquarius, so resist the urge to escape reality or over-indulge in vices.

Sunday, September 12th: Moon in Sagittarius sextiles Saturn in the afternoon, so you can make some progress with challenging work, or getting chores done. Sagittarian moon wants to play around and explore, so carve out time for adventures too!
