Astrological Weekly Weather for September 22nd -28th
All times are written for E.D.T.
This is a huge energy week… Surfs up, so wax your board, secure your tether and let go and trust that it will be a great ride! It begins to pick up swells Monday night, as we shift to a new season and for sure a turning point with the Autumn Equinox (Northern Hemisphere). Summer is behind us, school is ensuing, the airs is starting to cool and mental focus shifts.
There is a New Moon Wednesday morning (2:14 AM E.D.T) that sets the pace for the Wormhole we are about to enter. We are heading into another great wave of change and it’s up to us to ride it with a “cup half full” perspective… even if the cup spills or overflows! What is a Wormhole? A portal to take us to uncharted, new territory that is bound to expand our experience of reality. It’s to get us to a place we couldn’t find otherwise…so ride… make it an adventure!
Monday the 22nd
It’s a big day and the weather is definitely changing! The Moon is in Virgo all day and early this morning she stimulates Jupiter to increase our perspective and think big; just hold off on making new commitments (if you can) and let the shift of the evening set the new stage first. A powerful trine from the Virgo Moon to Pluto in Capricorn at 10:04 AM carries extra oomph for focus and accomplishment, as Pluto is stationed to go direct in 5 hours. When a planet stations, it’s as though it is sitting in the seat of its power and many of us may feel it.
Change is in the Air today as we lead up to the powerful about-face this evening. Pluto turns direct after 5 months or retrograde at 8:36 PM. The Sun moves into Libra, as autumn gets her official start (Fall Equinox) at 10:30 PM and summer is officially over. Pluto (ruler of Scorpio and deep transformation) moves so slow that this shift is almost unnoticeable at the start, but this marks a turning point that is readying us for the upcoming, powerful wormhole eclipses (more on that later). For the last 5 months, we have been on a transformational journey that was very internalized and with Pluto direct, we will see those inner developments and changes begin to show up in our external world.
Tuesday the 23rd
This a pretty easy flowing day that leads to the New Moon on 23rd- 24th (depending if you are East coast or West coast). On this 1st day of Fall, the Virgo Moon trines Venus at 8:16 AM… our hearts are eager to serve and nurturing feels good. Taking the high road of Virgo is all about birthing higher consciousness and from there our hearts can experience a profound love. At 5:03 PM, the Virgo Moon and Mercury in Libra connect harmoniously and communications, and transportations flow with greater ease. This is a great set up for the New Moon. J
The Moon enters Libra at midnight and the New Moon occurs about 3 hours later (2:14 AM E.D.T.) We get a chance to rebalance elements in our relationships with this one. It’s easy to think in terms of people and pets when we hear the word “relationship”… but truly we are in relationship to everything in our world, like… ourselves, our bodies, our home, our cars, the plants, the planet and so on. So this New Moon is a seed planting time; a chance to start fresh in a new cycle that is powerfully emphasized as it conjuncts the Super Galactic Center – a huge black hole that our Milky Way and many more galaxies revolve around! This is big stuff! So big that I really can’t wrap my mind around it at this time and because we are entering the Eclipse period (Wormhole), I am not even going to try!
Jupiter (expansion and wisdom) and Uranus (the great awakener) are headed for an exact trine on Thursday, but they are already activating the excitement of this positive aspect as it hooks into the New Moon theme. Suffice it to say it’s potent and we are perched on the swell of a huge wave that is bound to bring exciting and transformational change. There is balance up ahead, but we may need to fall off our boards a few times to find it! Hands in the air time… Weeeeeee J Hang ten!
Wednesday the 24th
A New Moon has a 24 hour seed planting window and given the power of this one… this day is all about a lot more of that! Cooperation and reverence of the interconnectedness of all beings will guide us to a deeper understanding that separation is an illusion, one we can expand beyond.
Let yourself find the inspiration of this energy that is compounded by a lunar sextile to Mars at 2:32 PM, this aspect can present creative outlets and support some action for progress to be made. At 9:40 PM This Libra Moon (still in New Moon Mode) will square Pluto and we could find ourselves challenged to keep the cooperative spirit flowing. Let’s do our best to see the gift that reveals something we need to see about ourselves or the “other” in our lives. Complications (should they arise) introduce opportunities that motive us to grow. At this point trying to resist change is crazy making!
Thursday the 25th
The Moon forms a bridge to Uranus at 5:31 AM, right before Uranus forms his exact trine to Jupiter at 1:17 PM. This fire sign trine is a real Gem! Let’s just say this day (this week) can pack some positive surprises of epic proportions, so I keep telling myself… “Just say Yes!” and see what happens. Breakthroughs and leaps forward are all possible today.
This energetic wave lasts from the New Moon (Tuesday/Wednesday) into next week! Let innovation and coloring outside the lines, lead you into good fortune and choose to pull back to see the bigger picture! The more we are willing to let our “old story” go and head into the unknown with optimistic expectations, the more the benefits of this trine can flow from us and to us
Friday the 26th
The Moon enters the depths of Scorpio at 10:30 AM, but before it leaves Libra (the sign of the powerful New Moon we just had), She trines Mercury at 8:40 AM and we are posed for a communication that clarifies something we garnered from the New Moon experience.
Once in Scorpio, the Moon forms harmonious connections to the Sun at 5:37 PM and then Neptune at 8:54 PM, making for a pleasant evening. Take a moment to center and listen to your intuition, it will be speaking very clearly now.
Saturday the 27th
The Scorpio Moon sextiles Pluto at 7:26 AM, jumpstarting us into a productive morning that can inspire us to purge unwanted patterns and lighten our load in a transformative way. Feelings may be intense and it’s a good time to challenge yourself to release a limited belief and see what happens. As Abraham Hicks would say “A belief is just a thought you keep thinking”. We have a choice at every moment and as Mercury joins the Moon in Scorpio at 6:40 PM, there is an even greater opportunity to sharpen our perceptions, cut through the BS and see a deeper truth concerning our behavior and motives. We are all learning to trust ourselves more authentically!
Mercury in Scorpio is a fantastic detective, uncovering what has been hidden and clarifying what wants manifestation. He will be here for a while as he slows down to go retrograde during the 1st three weeks of October. What you focus on now will be revisited and reworked for greater understanding… so consider this a Trailer to the Movie you are playing out mentally in October. We are full of insights that can potentially set us on a new path. Hang in there, it’s so worth it and know we can’t figure this all out right now. Big clarity comes after the Wormhole!
Sunday the 28th
We have a slow start as the Sun and Saturn form a frictional connection at 7:30 AM, bringing our focus to obligations and responsibility. By 10:52 AM, the Sun and Neptune make a less than friendly connection and we feel like escaping from those responsibilities. Try to not go hard on yourself or anyone else for that matter, as it looks like this day is a mixed bag of energetics that can leave us feeling demotivated. So no pushing and certainly no guilt trips, shoulds or victimhood today! Avoid that no matter what!
There is a nice sextile between the Moon (feelings) and Venus (love and what you value) at 4:32 PM, generating a pleasant climate for communicating feelings and spreading the Love. The Moon enters Sagittarius at 6:51 PM injecting the evening with optimism and hope as we review our power packed week and then turn to envision the next.
