This very pivotal moment in human evolution continues. We have spent nearly three decades, since the Harmonic Convergence in August 1987, reclaiming and realigning our Selves with the long lost Divine Feminine portion of our existence. It has taken a Read more →
Weekly Weather for the week of September 29 – October 5:
All times are EDT.
We are gearing up for two Eclipses (starts next week on the 8th) and what I want to call “Mister Toad’s Wide Ride” (Disney) where we won’t be able to know exactly where we are or what is coming next. Have NO fear… it can be a very magical ride… just give up attempting to control an outcome and trust the journey to bring you to someplace new, while you take very good care of yourself! Eclipses are like cosmic reboots that bring the potential for huge shifts in consciousness that bring tremendous change.
Imagine the Aries Lunar Eclipse on October 8th and the Scorpio Solar Eclipse on October 23rd, to be like a set of book ends that hold volumes of surprise endings and new beginnings (including a Mercury retrograde) that can vastly expand your experience of who you are. Life will surely not run in a straight line, So keep your head up and get ready to enjoy the ride J
Monday the 29th
We begin our last week of September with a very positive energetic day! Our morning rolls in with an optimistic outlook as the Sagittarius Moon and the Virgo Sun join in a creative sextile around sunrise. There are no other aspects until 2:35 PM, when the Moon (feelings) and Mars (action and initiative) join in adventurous Sagittarius and really get our fires going. Any attempt to squish the drive of this energy to do something new, could backfire… so allow yourself some exploration today and enjoy this upbeat energetic.
Venus (the planet of Love, attraction and values) leaves Virgo and moves into Libra (where she is definitely more comfortable) at 4:52 PM and our desires turn to more of an artistic approach that seeks balance. She will be here for the next 4 weeks, so it’s a great time to reevaluate (especially with Mercury retrograde on the 4th) where you stand with your heart’s desires in all your relationships. What do you need to tweak in yourself to get more balance in your life. The key is to have your focus be you and not project it all onto a partner, place or thing.
The evening is filled with more good vibes, so go for what inspires you and take time to celebrate something you are grateful for… it will bring more of same kind of “good stuff” … stay in the adventure all the way to sleep time! Tomorrow morning we may need to think twice.
Tuesday the 30th
At 9:12 AM Venus and Jupiter reflect a tendency to overindulge and take things too far, so just be aware and think more in terms of a cautious approach ( with love and money) so you won’t have to clean up the effects of excess.
Mercury in Scorpio and Venus in Libra form a growth oriented semisextile at 12:20 PM and our communications can effectively get to the heart of the matter … we can use this as a tool to reestablish some aspect of a relationship that has gotten way out of balance. Go for communicating deep truths with a gentle tongue to get the best results.
Wednesday October 1st
Welcome to October, as the temps cool down and we head to Mercury retrograde on the 4th, the Moon entered Capricorn just after midnight. This authoritative, Capricorn Moon is very busy the entire day and night! Let me lay it out for you….
She contacts Neptune at 10:01 AM with a sextile (creative), then semisquares Saturn 25 minutes later (friction), then she later squares the Sun at 3:34 PM (obstacles to overcome), she conjuncts Pluto at 7:49 PM (personal power harnessed) and finally, the Capricorn Moon semisextiles Mars at 10:17 PM (goals get energized) and we can finally get some rest!
So, my recommendation it to adapt patience as your theme of the day and understand that lots can get done, but it will take a generous dose of flexibility and patience… so pace yourself and keep going with the understanding that due diligence (minus stubbornness) will get you there.
Thursday the 2nd
It’s a relatively quiet morning… good for regrouping after yesterday. The Capricorn Moon sextiles Saturn just after Noon today and we are given some grounding support to implement plans in a very practical way. This is a good time to sort out something that was unclear before.
Friday the 3rd
The Moon entered Aquarius while we slept and she squares Mercury at 7:44 AM, possibly stimulating communications that seem like they are out of left field. This quirky, rebellious climate blows over fast as the Moon forms a harmonious trine to Venus at 11:54 AM, helping us get to the heart of the matter. This helps the afternoon to run smoothly and the Sun/Moon trine at 9:56 PM, puts the icing on the cake with satisfaction delivered.
At 10:20 PM, a lunar aspect to Pluto can bring more focus to our ability to make changes that enhance a better sense of Self Love. It’s a foundation that we can build all our other relationships on and worthy of our attention.
Saturday the 4th
It’s a pretty big day Astrologically! The Sun squared Pluto at 4:02 AM, before most of us get up. This is a challenging connection that supports transformation; it’s nice that some of it could get worked out in our sleep! It’s connected to the recurring theme of purging the old and making space for the new. Watch your step and choose self-empowerment over entanglement and you will do just fine.
Mercury turns retrograde today at 12:03 PM at 2 degrees Scorpio for the next 3 weeks and it may have us reviewing and perhaps, redoing something that we have worked to bring into physical reality. This is a great time to look back at what you have learned about the way you build relationships and what works and what didn’t. When Mercury goes retrograde, we go more inward, more subconscious and that is one of the reasons why we hear that communications, travel and electronics can go haywire… we tend to be not as focused externally and can overlook important details. So double check and pay attention to ensure an easier ride.
Mars in Sagittarius trines Uranus in Aries very late, (just after midnight) so we may find it difficult to settle down for sleep. This energy has been building all day and it is full of spontaneous, pioneering, innovative, creative potential… so have fun with it! Inspiration to do something brand new is running rampant.
Sunday the 5th
The Moon enters sweet Pisces at 5:25 AM and all the fiery energy of last night is tamed by gentle waters. We are ready to dial back the volume of life and this is perfect for a Sunday Morning; rest, dream, love, relax and create from your highest vision. At 9:06 AM, a Lunar trine to Mercury enhances this compassionate, spiritual, forgiving vibe and our communications can be healing and kind. This is a day to tap into your connection to Universal forces and take in some beauty for your Soul.
At 11:20 PM, the Pisces Moon sextiles Pluto, bringing transformative energy to this highly intuitive and sensitive day. Faith can move mountains.
