Hurricane Florence made landfall in Wilmington, NC about 2:30 AM on Friday, September 14, 2018, and has cut that city off from all access for now. Since then, the now tropical storm Florence has been creeping along at 3-5 miles an hour. It will be some time before we know the full extent of the damage to all areas affected. The good news is, the wild ponies on the outer banks are doing just fine.
It has been interesting to watch it unfold and it is far from over. The weather prediction is that rain will continue in my area until Tuesday. And the Jupiter-Neptune trine is still in place. Water, water, everywhere in the Carolina’s.
If you did your homework last week, you took advantage of what the New Moon in Virgo had to offer. This Moon was about getting organized.
Having a Virgo Moon myself, I am always in organize mode to some extent. I don’t think I am obsessive about it, but I often struggle with feeling like I am making the most of things. Have you made a list of goals to free yourself from mental or physical clutter, fact-checked your ideas and goals, started a new health regimen, or been conscientious or helpful to others in some way? All these are Virgo traits.
The shadow side can be rather critical and ugly. I saw a bit of that ugly this week. It wasn’t fun. Other shadow aspects of Virgo are hypochondria, obsessive compulsiveness, perfectionism, and control issues. The shadow side of any side can be difficult. That is why we call it “the shadow side”.
The end of the coming week we will see the Virgo’s influence dissipate somewhat as the Sun moves into Libra Saturday the 22nd. Mercury will lead the way for the Sun and enter Libra just before midnight in the 21st.
We begin this week with Mars has just barely into Aquarius. He actually moved there on the September 10, after his recent retrograde back into Capricorn. I hope you tied up all your Capricorn type business before that and are ready to rumble with the action of an Aquarian flavored Mars.
This team playing energy but we could use hot or miss tactics to reach our goals. We might also notice impersonal expressions of anger thanks to the Aquarian influence on Mars. Our problems are viewed from an intellectual perspective and the unconventional draws our attention.
Take it from this Aquarian, this is sometimes seen as being uncomplimentary by others as they try to make things fit nicely into their box of perfection. If this is you, don’t let it get you down. Roll with the punches, lie your truth, and move on or get out of their way. This will be over soon enough. I hope.
This week also begins with Mercury in aspect to both Jupiter and Venus. The aspect with Jupiter is bringing us positive thoughts, cooperation, and new insights. This energy is good for writing, observations, and learning.
Mercury’s difficult aspect to Venus will create some problems in communications today. But it could bring us more polite communication as well. There might also be some hypersensitivity or mental wanderings. Sounds pretty normal to me.
Tuesday Mars squares Uranus. Squares are almost always a problem. This one has some ADD-like characteristics, will cause some impulsivity and risk-taking so think before you act. The desire to fight for our freedom is strong with this aspect and some of us will feel rather rebellious. Life changes or changes in a work schedule could cause us to adjust our goals.
Thursday Mercury is conjunct the Sun. Minds are sharp and communications open. We notice our desires and thoughts are in alignment. This is a good time to solve problems. What we say and what we write impacts others for in both positive and negative ways.
Saturday, Mercury opposes Chiron. Chiron is working to heal but can go about it in interesting ways. This energy can cause misunderstandings. The inability to understand the intent of another person’s words is difficult and our ability to make a clear decision is also difficult. Our own communications could lead us to misrepresent ourselves to some extent.
The last aspect of the week is an inconjunct with Mercury and Uranus. Oh, how we rub people the wrong way. I know this one well. This is another aspect that can cause us to misrepresent ourselves.
Try not to make any big decisions or you might have regrets. Our ideas might be welcomed by others. There is also a level of impulsivity and disorganization with this aspect too. What a way to end the week. Remember….this energy is temporary and that is a good thing.
The rain has finally moved into my area. Winds are picking up. My phone has sounded four flash flood alerts in the past hour. I saw a map of the area Florence is now covering. She stretched from Tennessee to the NC coast. That is about 500 miles. She is also spreading out now from Georgia to Virginia. We might see the Sun Tuesday or Wednesday. That will be nice.
Go make this a good week. Be kind and smile. Lots of folks need a helping hand right now. Do your best to help out.
