I will be doing this week’s post in two parts. This first one is the days of the week, transits, and aspects, and the other is dealing more with specific topics of interest. I hope you enjoy both.
I have never had cause to bring this up but with tensions as they are among the collective, I feel the need to state a disclaimer of sorts:
Your comments and discussions are most welcome as long as they remain respectful to the opinions of others and there is no bashing or hate speech. Thanks!
Now, this week, we have a few sign changes. That is always big energy and all this happens later in the week.
Today, Sunday, Venus is inconjunct Chiron. We could find we are slightly dissatisfied with our relationships or that there is a choice we need to make regarding a personal one, our belongings, or our finances. Feeling of insecurity could pop up and cause some clumsiness when it comes to expressing our emotions to others.
Monday, Venus will be trine Uranus. This is a good aspect for taking risks because we are less fearful. Loving the unusual is big today, both in romance and with our money. Just be sure not to go too crazy with any spending. I don’t want my readers to get into financial trouble. Do enjoy the creativity today brings. Technology, electronics, art, metaphysics, and socializing are all good things to do today.
Monday also holds a semi-square between Mercury and Jupiter. Jupiter could expand data to the point of overload for us. Don’t get too stressed out. You might also find that some people will be prone to exaggerate things today while some of us will find this to be a monkey mind day full of mental activity and agitation. Don’t let the frustrations cause you to say something you might wish you had not.
Tuesday Venus moves into Virgo. The energy shifts from big, grand, prideful gestures in love, to showing our affections in more practical ways. Love and relationships need to make sense. The shadow side is being too picky and critical of our partners and co-workers.
Also on Tuesday, the Sun opposes Chiron. We might feel some fear about being different. Aren’t we all different? With the media and the world telling us what we should look like, our natural discomfort about ourselves can be high with this aspect. Keep in mind your differences are beautiful and you are capable of making good decisions. Don’t be afraid to verbalize what you want. Don’t be selfish either.
Mercury opposes Neptune on Tuesday. Neptune’s influence can cause our minds to be a bit slow and wander. Communications are all foggy today. You might not get good solid answers to your questions and there could also be some misunderstandings. Avoid contracts today because of this. This combo can cause some depression, confusion, and deception. Be aware. Wednesday the Moon moves into Virgo and we have a New Moon too.
Wednesday the Moon moves into Virgo and we have a New Moon too. This is the time to begin new projects for the coming month. This will be a great time to start that new diet you’ve been thinking about or change those bad, unhealthy habits. This is a good time to create and better work environment too. Buy a new plant for the office or bring in some healthy snacks to share. Hang a new picture or some other decoration to brighten the space.
Mercury and the Sun both aspect Uranus on Wednesday. Uranus always means excitement and change to me. Mercury’s aspect to Uranus is minor and called sesquiquadrate. The planets are 135 degrees from each other. However, this is still an energy you will notice. Intuition could be stronger today albeit a bit more rattlebrained. The shadow side of this aspect is being snarky or cranky with a side of sarcasm.
The Sun is inconjunct Uranus. Surprise, surprise! Some of us could feel like we don’t know which end is up or which direction to take. There is a general feeling of being out of control. I say, what is new? Good ole Uranus, full of the unexpected so don’t be surprised when plans change.
Thursday, Venus and Pluto do the sesquiquadrate thing. Venus has sure been in the spotlight these past few weeks. This aspect could cause some stress in our socializing. Be on the lookout for a a suspicious mind here and there or jealousy to pop up.
Friday is a big day and it will bring us lots of new energies and we celebrate that Fall Equinox and the Sun enters Libra. The equinox is a time of celebration among many, especially those who follow the old Earth-based religions such as the Pagans and Wiccans. Personally, I am not one for ceremony but I do tend to pay tribute to these times of the year in my own way whether is it being out in nature or just a meditation focused on the meaning of the day. This year I will be working with others around the globe to anchor in these energies and assist in the shift to the next level of vibration.
The Sun’s transit of Virgo has helped us focus on our health, details of life, and how we are organized or lack organization. It has taken me all month to get a real good feel for this energy but this last week seems to have been the one to tip my need for organization over the edge. I am pleased with my progress but still have more to do.
The Sun in Libra energy is about relationships and seeing others as mirrors. This transit is willing to compromise, negotiate, and do what it takes to find balance. Libra is a real peacemaker, seeing both sides of a problem or issue and does not like to make waves. Little wonder the symbol for this sign is the scales of justice.
The shadow side is where we find passive-aggressive or self-serving behaviors, superficial chatter, and judgment. Its not a pretty site.
Friday will also see Mercury trine Pluto. This focuses our thoughts on the supernatural. Some will experience heightened intuition and insight. Others will feel more like going deep into understanding something and gaining knowledge and understanding. Saturday is the September 23. Be sure to read the blog following this one. I will call it part ii. It explains more about what is going on in the cosmos on this day.
The last aspects for this active week are Mars in a semi-square to Jupiter and Jupiter inconjunct Chiron. Mars semisquare Jupiter brings big action, over stimulation, and excitability. Some of us will leap before we leap and that is seldom a wise choice. The consequences could cost us dearly. Be careful!
Jupiter inconjunct Chiron has us questioning our plans, and almost all aspects of our life. It won’t be unusual for some to feel lost or easily influenced by others. If we push an idea forward or go ahead with a project to fast we could run into road-blocks. Try not to expect too much from yourself or others today. Chill out and relax. It is Saturday after all.
That does it for this week’s astrology outlook. I hope you have a good week this week. As always, remember to be kind to the other guy even if you don’t agree. Help those in need. You might need the favor one day.
And be sure to read part ii that I will be posting tomorrow.
