We begin this week with a New Moon that perfected at 2:02 PM EDT. This reminds me of one of my all-time favorite albums. Dark side of the Moon.
While last week was not a particularly mercurial, the Shuman Resonance spiking high. This is a measurement of the electromagnetic field of the Earth between the surface and the ionosphere. It is also considered to be the “heartbeat” of the Earth. When it was first discovered in 1952, the resonance measured a fairly constant 7.83 Hz.
Sometime after the year 2000, the Shuman resonance was noted to fluctuate a bit higher. In 2014 it was considered an anomaly when it rose to between 15 and 25 Hz. By 2017 it had risen as high as 36+ Hz. The past few days it has spiked over 40 Hz. Researchers believe this is a sure sign that the Earth is shifting and changing. When it does, so do we. There is a Russian site that monitors these influxes. You can check it how here and Google will translate it for you. http://sosrff.tsu.ru/?page_id=7

Lots of people are sensitive to these frequencies and yet totally unaware or deny that they have any effect on them. The symptoms are usually considered to be just a touch of a cold, not enough rest, ringing in the ears, or something we ate. Some actually feel waves of energy washing over them or feel waves of emotion and love. I usually feel tired and in need of a nap which is also common. My point in sharing this is that Astrology is simply one way we are impacted by energy. Now on to this week’s New Moon and astrological aspects.
New Moons are about new beginnings. This Virgo New Moon only adds to the load of Virgo energy that is influencing us until September 21, 2018. This is a great time to focus on our routine or day to day life. We might want to consider if we are being too critical, analytical or not enough. Are we using our intellectual skills, are we organized, conscientious, and accommodating? This is a good time to consider our goals and make adjustments. Make a list and enjoy marking off the completed tasks.
Mercury is also transiting Virgo and this is making its mark in conversations. If you notice an increase in the precision of your speech or get lost in details. Being over factual is also a characteristic of this transit. This can cause us to seem like we lack imagination or be more critical and matter-of-fact. Remember, this is Virgo’s influence and it will be most felt by those with strong natal aspects in Virgo like me. I have a Virgo Moon and I sure can be all these things when the energy is right. . . like now.
Before I go on with aspects I want to make you aware of a Green Comet that will appear in the sky tomorrow night at about 6:40 GMT. This translates to 2AM EDT I believe. Using a good pair of binoculars should enable a good view. Another green comet arrives on December 16 of this year and it will be visible with the naked eye.
Venus has moved into Scorpio today, Sunday, September 9, 2018. We will find that we desire a deep contact with others and that causal flirtation don’t cut it over the next seven and a half weeks. Venus is very emotional and in her detriment in this transit. Expect to notice increased passion, energy, and sexual desire. Ooo la la!
The downside of this is that love and relationships feel a bit like they are on a roller coaster. We feel the draw to be close but have trouble moving ahead on blind faith. We also have a tendency to create drama so we feel more vital. Jealousy, fear, and even betrayal can seem to take over if we are not careful.
Another aspect to start the week off with is a T-square with Venus, Uranus, and Mars as the focal point. This can herald a change in the areas or money, women, and relationships (Venus), men, action, aggressiveness (Mars), the unpredictable, unexpected, rebellion (Uranus). There is a potential for attacks personally and attacks played out on the world stage.
This T-square energy will influence most of this week and in a major way. Keep your eyes open for swift change, relationships and alliances to end while others to form. Some of us might suddenly feel the need for change and decide to leave a job, a relationship or something that we feel is restricting our freedom. Uranus energy does not like to be tied down or restricted. If you have planets at 0-3 degrees or in Scorpio, Aquarius, Taurus, or Leo, you will probably feel this more than others. I have both Scorpio and Aquarius feeling this one.
Monday Mars moved into Aquarius. This will add to the already unpredictable character of the T-Square as Mars is influenced by the Aquarian energy. This is not as bad as it might sound, however. Keep in mind that Aquarius has humanitarian qualities and loves technology. Aquarius also has two planetary rulers. The unpredictable one is Uranus. The stabilizing influence comes Saturn. The Universe does seem to love balance.
Monday has one last aspect I wish to discuss. This is a semi-square between Mars and Neptune. Neptune will serve to distort all thing Mars tries to do today. We might find that we are a bit clumsy, careless, or that we seem to be wasting time. The path forward could seem out of our reach right now, out of focus, or at least not clearly seen.
Tuesday the Sun’s sextile aspect to Jupiter provides us with a bit of hope. This is energy is good for all forms of self-promotion, publishing, and marketing. This energy also promotes unselfishness, allowance, and being sociable. There is the possibility of some sort of personal recognition with this too.
Wednesday Venus is sextile Saturn. This aspect will offer some stability to the emotional Venus in Scorpio energy. Relationships are on track, steady and somewhat reserved. Relationships feel real and good things can come to our business relationships too. We can expect good advice from our elders and possible re-connections or contact with old friends.
Thursday Mars is sextile to Chiron. This aspect can help us take the lead in healing and teaching. Chiron is about healing and Mars is helping us today to be fearless when it comes to any problem areas. Mars will increase our self-confidence and help us take positive action. Teaching, healing, and actions with purpose are in the spotlight with this one.
There is also an opposition between Mercury and Neptune in Thursday. This can make us feel a bit fuzzy and lazy mentally. This won’t be a good day for any technical questions. Neither will is be a good one for getting answers from others. You might want to avoid signing contracts if possible. Neptune’s lack of mental clarity could cause problems such as confusion, misunderstandings, depression, or deceit.
The last two aspects this week both involve Mercury. Friday, Mercury will positively aspect Uranus. Our intuition and insight into things could get a boost as could new ideas. Our thoughts feel heard which is always a good feeling. The shadow side of this is that tempers, intolerance, and sarcasm could be prominent.
Saturday Mercury trines Pluto. Again our insight could get a boost. Pluto deals with psychological topics and we can expect an increase in our understanding, awareness, and focus on what makes us tick. All in all, I would say a good way to end this coming week.
There is hurricane brewing off the southeast coast headed for the coast near the border of North and South Carolina. It is expected to be a category 4 by Tuesday and hit land Friday. I am a bit concerned about this in part due to a trine aspect between Neptune and Jupiter. The the fact the the Moon and Venus will be in the water sign of Scorpio could mean a lot of water damage for some places. Several places along this possible path have not recovered from the hurricane the hit almost two years ago. That was Hurricane Maria on October 8, 2016. She was the deadliest hurricane since Floyd in 1999.
Regardless of the weather or the aspects and how they affect us, we have no excuse not to be kind to others. Do your best and smile to all you meet and all you pass.
