Week Beginning Friday, September 30th

"Beauty Within" by Scott Anna
We are operating on the energies of the Libra New Moon on the 27th that was fraught with creative and developmental tension. The Sun and Mercury checked in with oppositions to Uranus and squares to Pluto suggesting a time of evolving awareness and action that is focused on personal emancipation and activism.

The planets in Libra got up close and personal with the Uranus/Pluto square – the two planets that have been and continue to be the “transformational teachers” of our personal development over the next few years.

Venus conjuncted Saturn on the 29th where her affectionate energy was focused and tempered. Deeper commitments may have developed at this time between partners and conversely, others may have decided/felt that current alliances feel far too limiting.

Mercury is next in line for his pow wow with Saturn on the 6th evoking a day of serious thinking, long term planning and focus.

Big plans, exaggerated displays and confidence are in evidence on the 30th when Mars squares up to Jupiter in Taurus.

ARIES: This is the time of year when you have less control than at others times. Other people hold the energetic strings now and you are learning to acquiesce and to balance your independent ways with the needs of your partner. The New Moon requires more of your time and attention to partnership and relationships. Be careful with your financial resources on the 30th when lovers and children may need more than you have to give.  Aries 2011 Fall Report - $10.99

GEMINI: Romantic alliances may move to a deeper level of commitment this week or a decision may be made that this is not an avenue that meets your needs.

Week Beginning Friday, September 16th

For the past five months Pluto has been in retrograde (think back to early April when Pluto stationed retrograde). Pluto tends to shake things up when he stations and he is stationing at 4 degrees Capricorn on the 16th.  Expect a few rumblings as this transformative energy starts lumbering forward in the area of your chart representing deep-seated and long-term change.

Shortly thereafter, on the 18th , Venus in her home sign of Libra squares up to Pluto, suggesting a time of tension and struggle surrounding love, money, and personal values.

Since early August Mars has been transiting the water sign of Cancer. Mars now moves into a more receptive energy when he enters Leo on the 17th. Expect the planet of desire and assertion to be less hesitant and more demonstrative in the sign of playful Leo. This same day Venus is awakened by an opposition to Uranus, indicating a status quo change. 

The Sun enters airy and intellectual Libra on the 23rd while Mars makes a positive trine to Uranus, both of which are positioned in brave and assertive fire signs.

ARIES: You feel lighter and more energetic as Mars shifts from the personal and emotional depths of your 4th house into the area of fun and games in your 5th house. Expect some tremors in the area of career, marriage, authorities, and life direction as Pluto awakes from his five-month slumber. Partnership and work bump and grind on the 18th as Venus gets settled in your 7th house of partnership. Your independent needs vex the goddess on the 17th as the quest for personal autonomy upsets the others in your life.

TAURUS: Venus exits fellow earth sign Virgo and moves into her “other” home sign of Libra which rules your 6th house of work, health, daily schedules, and co-workers. This area continues to be a force of learning, structuring, and discipline lessons for you throughout October 2012. Venus occupancy helps to personalize and soften the lessons. Pluto catches her attention, reminding you of the need for attentive self-care while demands (and possible power plays) ring out from a distance or in relation to publishing or education.  Order your TAURUS Fall 2011 Report - $10.99

Keep your cool and allow situations to settle in. Order your GEMINI Fall 2011 Report - $10.99

CANCER: Mars gallops out of your sign and into Leo, which is the area of your chart affecting earned income and your talents.

Your home life and family is being tested as Venus opposes Uranus in your 10th house of work and reputation and then squares Pluto in your 7th house of partnership. Pluto’s shift into forward motion unleashes some pent up power issues around your emotional security and relating skills. Remember, when the others in your life are engaging in heavy handedness it’s a reminder to mind your own energy and to not engage—right?  Order your CANCER Fall 2011 Report - $10.99

LEO: Mars enters your sign on the 17th kicking off a six-week period of increasing energy (feeling like you can cope once again), confidence, and assertiveness.

Venus shifts into compatible air sign Libra which rules your local neighborhood and sibling relationships – things become more supportive and loving with those in your day-to-day world. But before peace and affection prevail Venus tussles with first Uranus (9th house of higher mind) and then Pluto (6th house of health and work).  Order your LEO Fall 2011 Report - $10.99

VIRGO: As Mars shifts into the sign just prior to yours a lowering of energy and the need for more privacy and rest may be expected. Venus slips out of your sign and into Libra, which is the sign ruling your 2nd house of values, talents, and earned income. Money is in the frame (the Sun will join Venus on the 23rd) and Venus suggests that more is coming in but not before a surprise from Uranus (in your 8th house of shared resources). Then power-hungry Pluto (moving direct in your 5th house of children and romance) rattles your plans and expectations. Let the dust settle.  Order your VIRGO Fall 2011 Report - $10.99    

LIBRA: Your ruling planet Venus gets shaken and stirred on the 17th and 18th.

Mars enters fellow fire sign Leo on the 17th and energizes your 9th house of beliefs and philosophy. The next six weeks may find you preaching from your mountain top as well as traveling.

Week Beginning Friday, September 9th

While the East Coast cleans up and dries out post Hurricane Irene, Mercury re-enters Virgo and immediately passes the shadow point period of retrograde last month while opposing Chiron on the 10th. Oppositions are about awareness and this one takes place on the Virgo / Pisces axis. Many issues may be in the frame, including health, cleaning, organizing, work, employment (or lack thereof), the care of animals, and the mind/body connection.

The aftermath of crises often allows people to step into their highest and best self.  The heart opens and compassion expands as people are drawn into an experience of such magnitude that both fuels and ignites deep caring and empathy.  At it's highest Virgo is the sign of service and humbleness, stepping forward to provide earnest help through organization and practical skills.  It reminds me of the good auntie who moves in while Mom is sick to cook and clean for the family.

As we engage with this Virgo energy be aware of cues and urgings. Mars will be transiting this area for a significant period in November (until July 2012) due to his retrograde in January. Mars is the henchman for the Sun and acts upon the ideas and experiences that the Sun connects with during the month.

The Moon grows Full at 19 degrees Pisces on the 12th while squaring the Lunar Node in Sagittarius. Tension surrounds our intuition and beliefs, awakening the need for integration.

Venus slips into its home sign of Libra on the 14th while Mercury trines faith-based Jupiter.
