ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF OCT 25-31 2021




MON OCT 25.

This morning begins with the Moon in talkative Gemini trine Mars in Libra and Jupiter in Aquarius. With Venus in Sagittarius sextile Jupiter and now squaring Neptune, this can see ideals very high around relationships and Venus ruled matters, but it can also see confusion. The Moon in talkative Gemini trine Mars in Libra and Jupiter in Aquarius can see some really out of the box situations interpersonally, and there are choices and decisions confronting us that have perhaps had to be thought about over the weekend. The Sun in intense, do or die Scorpio squaring Saturn emphasizes a moral or ethical dilemma, challenge, or blockage around following our instincts. The Venus/Neptune contact can see an almost fairytale like idealization around partnerships, and there is a lack of clarity and longing around certain situations that can make them confusing. Something has to be released in order to be more authentic to ourselves, and Saturn in Aquarius highlights ethical considerations and staying in alignment with morals, principals, and doing the right thing by others. Instincts could feel at odds with this. The Moon enters sensitive Cancer at 2:00 PM PST, bringing this home to the feelings, where it’s no longer just a concept. It trines the Sun in Scorpio and squares Chiron, where the authenticity of instinct confronts the ethics of Saturn in Aquarius, amidst the barely realizable ideals of Venus and the fog of Neptune. This can feel vulnerable. Things may be submerged for now, and perhaps aren’t what they seem, as authenticity is hampered by Saturn, and Mars is still in the late degrees of conciliatory Libra, where people pleasing is still a factor. The Venus/Jupiter/Neptune contacts will be exact Wed and Thurs, and this can manifest in a multitude of ways. We can try to gloss something over and remain in denial about it, or we can accept it, but feel insecure and troubled about the fact that something is wrong, missing, or may cause pain. Regardless, happiness and high ideals are a big factor around interpersonal situations. Mars will leave partnership oriented Libra and enter uncompromising Scorpio on Saturday, indicating that fence sitting or placating others for the sake of maintaining harmony or protecting our own or others feelings simply can’t go on forever. If too much idealization of relationships is going on, reality checks will begin to ensue, and something has to give as the more authentic drives of Mars in Scorpio take the wheel.


TUES OCT 26.

Today see’s the Moon in comfort and security oriented Cancer trine the Sun in instinctual Scorpio, while squaring Chiron, Mercury in Libra, and sextile Uranus. Mercury in Libra also joins Mars in a trine to Jupiter in Aquarius. On a mundane level, this can see a lot of activity, movement, and changes. Perhaps facilitated by or through others somehow. Things are in flux and shifting. On a less mundane level, although it may be beneficial to go along to get along, play nice, placate others, tell people what they want to hear, cooperate, or do the dance and sing the song, socially, interpersonally or otherwise, aside from representing shifts and changes, on the home or emotional front, the lunar sextile to Uranus suggests we are still retaining some emotional independence or reserving the right to go buck wild and change gears. This unconventionality, or the fact that things are in flux, shifting, or on the move, can be a subtle source of tension or vulnerability. Another way of putting this math is that we have yet to sign away our souls completely to something until certain criteria is met, or perhaps our own authentic desires and ideals are somehow out of step or not quite in alignment with what is being presented to us, or the box that we are being placed in. The Venus and Neptune square is exact today at 20 degrees, and this can see elusive and mysterious situations that activate our highest ideals while presenting a lot of unknowns and uncertainty. There may be one path that seems to offer certainty and security, -but something vital is missing, and it’s uncertain that what’s missing from it will be remedied. There may be another path that appeals to our highest ideals and deepest, most authentic instincts, but what is missing is certainty and security, -and this requires patience, endurance, or and intelligence gathering. So the lunar/Uranus contact retains some detachment, freedom, and independence, taking a wait and see approach, or preparing and gathering resources and steam. This can see some highly unusual emotional situations, and there can be some instability as the gears shift. As we prepare to enter Scorpio season more wholeheartedly, with Mars entering the do or die sign on Saturday, and a Venus retrograde in sensual but serious Capricorn looms in November, -nobody is fucking around. As of now, Venus in Sagittarius in contact to Jupiter and Neptune may seem to be taking things lightly, glossing things over, making big promises, and hyper idealizing,- as if everything is all fun and games. Such an approach is unsustainable, and can have serious consequences down the line, because Mars in Scorpio and Venus in Capricorn will want to take it all to the bank. The Moon goes on to oppose Pluto while trine Neptune and square Mercury, and this can see indecision, sensitivity, intuition, empathy, and as of yet a lot of unknowns -combining with the uncompromising and powerful nature of our own and others desires. This makes for a complex and quietly loaded landscape. 


WED OCT 27.

The Moon in sensitive Cancer squares Mercury and Mars in Libra, while trine Neptune and opposite Pluto. This may see some rather complex and emotionally charged dynamics that must be navigated sensitively.  Tomorrow, the Venus and Jupiter sextile reaches exact perfection at 22 degrees. High ideals are extremely active. Realism is important if you don’t want to be sorely disillusioned, disappointed or let down. Several scenarios are possible here. It’s possible we could be acutely aware of others idealizations, and feel pressured to live up to them, -or the pain of knowing we may have to let them down, or simply can’t fulfill their expectations. Conversely, (or simultaneously) we could be aware of our own hopes around particular people or situations, and the potential for either being deeply fulfilled beyond our wildest dreams-or being let down, hurt, or disappointed. So… having a realistic understanding of human nature, and a realistic assessment of particular circumstances and situations, is key. Easier said than done under this mathscape, -but much easier for earth or Saturn dominant people. The Sun in Scorpio, under pressure from Saturn in Aquarius, bringing social ethics and moral issues to bare upon certain situations, links up to Uranus via opposition today, and can see some curve balls that people didn’t expect. If you aren’t holding people to any expectations, (for example, expecting them to behave in particular ways, conform to particular ideals, or live up to particular norms or previously understood spoken or unspoken agreements,) this shouldn’t throw you off kilter too much, and you’ll carry on focusing on your own personal goals more or less unfettered by whatever other people are doing. If you have been expecting people to tow a particular line, or actually depending on them to,- this aspect may take you by surprise, as it unfurls and combines with the incoming ingress of Mars in Scorpio. How these aspects play out is anyones guess, but with the Sun in Scorpio, people will feel a deeper need to be utterly true to themselves and their deeper instincts. In some cases, people can feel restrained or held back from following said instincts, and could resort to going around particular blockages in more subversive or roundabout ways, -or simply rearranging situations or dynamics to accommodate a more authentic and fulfilling expression of their desires. This could involve placing certain boundaries down or communicating certain truths that could catch people by surprise, perhaps letting them down, (gently of course). Or, it could involve breaking free of boundaries or restrictions, and navigating around them somehow while still trying to preserve the overall dignity, structure, and integrity of certain dynamics or situations. In some cases, it could manifest as a “have your cake and eat it to experimental scenario” that perhaps isn’t intended to be permanent, (maybe it’s a quest for authenticity and security, -and an attempt to merge and reconcile the two somehow), that will nonetheless be sorely tested through the Venus retrograde period. In either case, there’s nothing normal or conventional about whatever is going on interpersonally, financially, socially, etc.


THURS OCT 28.

Today see’s the Moon in playful, fun seeking, theatrical Leo squaring up to the Sun in do or die Scorpio, unconventional Uranus in sensual Taurus, and opposing Saturn in Aquarius, while trine Chiron in Aries. Whew….These are some pretty steamy and buck wild combinations that could feel blocked or inhibited by Saturn. Maybe we are trying to temper ourselves. Conversely, it’s also possible that social or ethical considerations are making us feel a bit held back, or maybe there’s just something totally unorthodox or outside of our norm around certain situations or dynamics, so we’re just dipping our toe in a little bit. For some, this is as simple as trying to find an equilibrium between our own baser, more animal instincts, -and our sincere respect or admiration for others.  These are some pretty feisty, lusty, even competitive and obsessive maths, so Saturn helps maintain a little bit of restraint here. Regardless, it’s a pretty heated atmosphere, perhaps it’s even a bit exciting. The lunar contact to Chiron can see a boost in morale, but the Saturn contact helps it not go to our head. The restraints may come off a bit tomorrow however, and it can be harder to hold back from anything tempting us. For now, Saturn reminds us of the long game and the fact that slow and steady wins the race. We may feel like we have to fight against a current to get what we want, or we may be fighting our own impulses and instincts to charge forward in a balls to the wall fashion around something, but the tension and energy this creates can be funneled productively into creative endeavors. It’s okay to go after what we want, we may need to temper our intensity for the time being, but it may leak out some even if we’re doing everything in our power to squelch it out for whatever reason. Maybe we’re overwhelmed by our own desires or maybe we’re afraid of them. The lunar/Saturn contact can feel kind of lonely, inhibited, or like a bit of a killjoy, like something is lacking or holding us back or blocking action. We may want to connect or express ourselves with others or with one person in particular, or in a particular way, but we could feel held back by circumstances, blockages, “rules”, conventions, ethical considerations, or fears, and this could just fuel determination and/or the intensity behind certain feelings, instincts, desires or impulses. The lunar/Chiron contact can see us feeling quietly encouraged. Perhaps all this intensity gets redirected into other areas for the time being. Tomorrow is a different story however, and restraint can be harder to come by. 


FRI OCT 29.

Today see’s the Moon in playful Leo sextile Mercury in Libra, trine Venus in Sagittarius and Chiron in Aries, while opposite Jupiter in Aquarius and square Uranus in Taurus. This can see some pleasant interactions, perhaps some good news or communications that boost our optimism around something. There could be some kind of positive developments or generosity or general "good luck" under these aspects. If we’ve been trying to resist something, or hold back, today may make that really difficult, as these are some pleasantly indulgent configurations. Something about what’s going on can be pleasantly surprising or perhaps unexpected. It could rock the boat in one way or another, as certain aspects have pointed to people feeling hemmed in or held back somehow for one reason or another, but people need to express themselves and be true to themselves. Maybe it’s just been a matter of confidence, or perhaps it’s more complicated and there’s moral or ethical dilemmas that have hampered a more free expression. Regardless of what’s been keeping people from being totally authentic, today it can be harder to deny certain impulses, feelings, or instincts. This can open an unexpected pandoras box or a floodgate of communication can change certain dynamics or take them into more authentic territory by broaching particular subjects or just ceasing to clamp down on the urge to express ourselves or open up communication with certain people. This can see some surprising dynamics that open up new possibilities or venture into new territory. With Venus in Sagittarius sextile Jupiter and the Moon in playful Leo trine Venus and Juno in Sagittarius, relationships with others can be a great source of learning, adventure, excitement, growth, curiosity, and consciousness expansion. A philosophical and broadminded attitude to interpersonal dynamics can help people get the most out of these configurations. Mars in Scorpio will ramp up the intensity and all or nothing nature of people’s drives and desire natures. Brace yourselves.


SAT OCT 30.

Mars enters all or nothing Scorpio this morning at 7:21 AM PST. This see’s the planet of desire, passion, conflict and will enter a deeply investigative phase driven by our deeper instincts and all or nothing desires. Nothing half hearted about Mars in Scorpio.  It either ticks all of the boxes, scratches a particular itch and meets a particular need- or it doesn’t. Luke warm doesn’t cut it. It’s a more ruthless phase than Mars in Libra, where the planet of drive is willing to make compromises for the sake of peace, sparing feelings, and being liked. That’s how Mars get’s what it wants in Libra. In Scorpio, Mars is more cut throat and at home. It doesn’t like being in Libra. It doesn’t feel right. It feels inauthentic. Fake. Watered down. It feels tamed, neutered, and clockwork oranged in Libra. It’s entry into Scorpio presents both good and bad news to everyone. The good news is that people will be more real and uncompromising about what they want. The bad news is that people will be more real and uncompromising about what they want. The Moon is in Leo for the first half of the morning, still trine Venus in Sagittarius while sextile Mars in Libra. Relationships and partnerships (business and personal) have opened up new possibilities, perhaps quite unexpectedly or in surprising ways. There is much to consider going forward. The Moon enters Virgo at 11:09 AM PST, where it will sextile the Sun in penetrating Scorpio and trine Uranus in Taurus. There’s a lot of details to investigate or mull over in regards to merging forces with others or taking things into new territory personally, socially, or in regards to business or creative ventures- or not.  There may be offers on the table, or there may about to be offers on the table, that weren’t there previously, and we may want to suss things or people out to be more sure about them, as the way this could change things could be pretty significant. Conversely, offers that were on the table, aren’t any longer, or are about to be taken off the table, and this has shifted dynamics, or is about to shift them. Today can see a focus on practical changes, organization, or shifts in routines and dynamics that are unfolding, and we could be adapting to what’s going on and reorienting ourselves internally and/or externally. There could be a lot that is still unknown, and the Virgo Moon and Scorpio Sun wants to go over fine print and is holding things to scrutiny.


SUN OCT 31.

Today see’s the Moon in Virgo trine Uranus and Pluto, and opposite Neptune, while going on to square Venus and the asteroid Juno in Sagittarius. There may be some unexpected but significant shifts occurring in interpersonal dynamics.  The lunar opposition to Neptune can see some anxiousness or nervousness in the face of something that can feel like “a big deal.” Maybe a major decision is called for, or something unexpected but game changing happens. People can react to these configurations in a number of ways, destructively or constructively. It really all depends upon ones level of maturity or what people are personally grappling with here. In an “all or nothing” atmosphere, certain personalities can be more likely to vacillate towards extremes or “black and white” thinking, in an effort to “get right to the point”-as opposed to leaving room for nuance. It’s also Halloween, so granted, freaks will be freaks. If people feel under a gun, they will stall or evade being pinned to anything, so just keep that in mind if you feel particularly pressed by your own high ideals and confusion around a person or situation. Otherwise, this mathscape see’s people gravitate towards exciting and highly unusual situations and people, it’s a spooky atmosphere that is suitable for the occasion. A lunar square to Venus can see interactions with others be a source of mystery, fascination, and confusion. We have a New Moon coming up in Scorpio next Thursday, and Venus will enter earthy Capricorn next Friday, engaging upon a long but necessary journey to get to the bottom of it and sort it all out.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF OCT 18-24 2021




MON OCT 18.

Both Mercury and Jupiter station direct today, and things can feel very expansive, optimistic, inspiring, but also surreal, overwhelming, and perhaps a bit disorienting. There can be some vulnerability because of this. In spite of this, it can be difficult to ignore the beauty of our particular circumstances and in the world and people around us. Idealism can be high, and there’s a need to step into action mode as the Moon enters Aries in the wee morning hours. It may take a bit to get our bearings, as the Pisces lunation at the tail end of an indulgent and gregarious lunar/Jupiter conjunction over the weekend may have set our heads spinning with fortunate turns and a cornucopia of various ways to indulge ourselves or improve our situations. With a head filled with starry eyed fantasy aimed at high ideals, the direct station of Mercury can have us feeling a bit wobbly, perhaps even a bit daunted and vulnerable initially, -but inspired or even a bit pressed (but enthusiastically so) to take action and get things back on track again after a rather disorienting spell that knocked us off kilter. The planetary station can be the part most prone to weirdness, misunderstandings or communication faux pas, so do be aware of this if people are acting a bit off, or things are a bit much initially, and try to give yourself and others some slack. The Moon opposes Mercury in Libra, but trines Venus in broadminded and adventurous Sagittarius, while sextile Saturn, indicating the potential for some tensions or clashes interpersonally, and a need for diplomacy and staying on task in relation to goals and passions. Whether people like it or not, socially and interpersonally, things are growing and expanding, and this particular Venus phase requires a philosophical and adventurous attitude as people paint in broad strokes and explore their feelings in relation to all things Venus. This requires that people have freedom and space to do so. In November, Venus will enter sensual but serious Capricorn, where the planet of love, self worth, values, and money will spend an unusually long period of time in the goal oriented, sleek and disciplined sea goat, due to a Venus retrograde set to impact us all until March of 2022. This will see a lengthy and serious reevaluation, learning and reflection process where we will have to get very serious about our goals and remain determined, stoic and strategic in the face of any potential obstacles that may arise. Venus in Sagittarius is expanding our options and connections, socially, financially, and interpersonally, and this see’s an adventurous, expansive, indulgent, freeing, and explorative approach to matters of love, money, self esteem, possessions, and values. The Venus in Capricorn retrograde cycle will sort the gold from the dross, but will also bring with it the potential for high pressure, “do or die” situations, difficult choices, some challenges, -and the possibility of some power struggles as we go for what or who we want. So there will be a lot to explore, navigate, observe, think about and prepare for between now and mid March of 2022. Self discipline and self control will be key. We’ve just completed a Mercury retrograde cycle in the sign of partnerships both business and personal, so the chances that everyones personal and financial lives haven’t been thrown into a proverbial blender and set to the “fuck me up, fam” setting, -are pretty low. However, Venus in Sagittarius currently aligns well with Chiron the wounded healer, so there are many positive, healing and beneficial interpersonal influences at play currently, and relationships of various kinds can offer valuable learning experiences, morale boosting, healing, upliftment, and optimism, even if everything feels a bit like an absurdist cartoon or comic book right now. People can be very generous, optimistic, and giving, and there can be a bit of a cosmopolitan element at play interpersonally. A philosophical approach can assist navigating any existing interpersonal tensions today.  Mars in Libra square Pluto can create intense undercurrents this week. Some of this could be compelling attractions with erotic undertones, in other cases there could be some barely veiled animosities or manipulations lurking under the surface. Whatever is the case, relationships are deeply impacted right now and transforming, and interactions of all kinds can be having major impacts on our lives in some pretty hard to ignore ways, and some people can be pretty heavy handed as this aspect perfects towards the end of the week. People pleasing and being overly accommodating for others will be going out the window soon with the entrance of the less compromising Scorpio season around the corner,- but this level of authenticity will feel refreshing.


TUES OCT 19.

Today see’s the Moon in enthusiastic Aries, opposite Mercury and Mars, while conjunct Chiron, sextile Jupiter,  -and trine Venus in Sagittarius. Sweet. In spite of certain vulnerabilities and interpersonal tensions, there’s still a significant amount of optimism, enthusiasm, and a feeling of having everything to play for. Relationships can feel larger than life at the moment, and ideals around them can be very high. A lunar square to Pluto can bring some intense, obsessive, compulsive, perhaps even addictive or somewhat dysfunctional elements into play in certain undercurrents, and it’s possible that we are attempting to gloss over some interpersonal or private complexity or some darker elements within the corners of our mind, environment, or dynamics just a bit, -in order to favor the glossier, sweeter and more uplifting side of our current chapter. That's understandable. Speaking of chapters, a Full Moon in Aries tomorrow signifies the beginning of a brand new one and with this comes the phasing out and release of an old one. Letting things go that are weighing us down and starting fresh is a good way to welcome this Full Moon, as Aries represents new beginnings and fresh cycles, while Full Moons represent conclusions and wrapping things up. We can all be doing a lot of both right now, and possibilities can feel limitless. However, the Venus in Capricorn cycle coming up in November lasting to March will put many of these possibilities to the test of reality. For now, enjoy what is good, and capitalize on it to the best of your ability. Strategies to keep what is good going will become the name of the game in the coming weeks and months. The energies of today and this evening can feel a bit larger than life, and there can be a lot of intensity leading up to the Full Moon, much of which will can be going down interpersonally. It’ll be important for people to keep their cool, with the inflammatory lunar aspects to Mars and Pluto being magnified and blown out of proportion by Jupiter can easily get people carried away. A little goes a long way. Mercury opposite Chiron can make communications sensitive and vulnerable, and a lot of diplomacy is required as situations or dynamics can be highly sensitive, dynamic, and inflammatory, even if they’re ultimately positive. Misunderstandings or disagreements can cause a hypersensitive atmosphere or simply blow things way out of proportion. The Moon is in positive contact with Venus in broadminded Sagittarius for the majority of the day and evening, and along with a sextile to Jupiter, this can see a lot of emotional generosity and supportiveness on the one hand, with tense dynamics on the other. People can be forgiven quickly and easily for fumbling, awkwardness, or overdoing something, because it’s clear they mean well, or are trying to help and be supportive. Problems can arise if disparate elements or personalities are overlapping somehow, or if old chapters are touching or mixing with new ones. There can also be culture clashes or simply differences in customs or personal style or emotional preferences and temperaments to navigate, but for the most part this is a dynamic and positive energy with a lot of potential for positivity and motivation available. 


WED OCT 20.

The Full Moon occurrs this morning in pioneering and independent Aries at 7:57 AM PST, 11:57 AM EST.  It’s opposite the Sun and Mars in Libra, square Pluto, and sesquisquare Venus. Interpersonal tension is certainly not out of the question, and keeping particular interactions and dynamics from different quarters, eras, chapters, or cultures safely and neatly compartmentalized may be a bit of a challenge here. Also challenging can be the maintaining of ones own individual will against a backdrop of competing interests or agendas of other people, groups, scenarios, or dynamic duos.  New chapters overlapping with old ones can be a major theme at this Full Moon, as the Aries theme of fresh starts and clean slates combines with the Full Moon theme of completions, endings, and closures, and this is particularly the case with relationships and partnerships, business, personal, and social. Is it any wonder that the Universe has a long Venus retrograde in the most no nonsense, Saturn ruled sign arranged for everyone? What and who endures and can go the distance will come out in the wash, and serious decisions will be on the line. Even if things feel loose, open ended, and exploratory now, people aren’t fucking around anymore when Venus enters Capricorn in Nov. Mars will also enter uncompromising, do or die Scorpio as well, so nothing half hearted will be on the menu, and people will want what they want passionately or not at all, and they won’t take defeat lying down, and could resort to more shadowy means of achieving their desires if a more direct, open, and transparent route is not an option. In either case this is certainly a dynamic time. The Moon enters practical and sensual Taurus at 12:59 PM PST, 3:59 PM EST, where it squares Saturn and conjoins Uranus. Resilience and an inner sense of calm and plodding stability is required here for yet more changes that can be destabilizing, at least initially. A minor lunar aspect to Neptune can see some exhaustion, loopiness, or feelings of uncertainty or simply tiredness with all the work or practical issues that need to be addressed. But on the other side can be yet another portal to some power moves, so it’s worth it to push through any feelings of “ugh what a slog.” If we push through menial tasks or things we know need to get done, we’ll be glad we did, and may find we have deeper energetic reserves available than we initially felt going into it. It may be one of those rare moments where a change is just as good as a rest, as tomorrow seems to hold a more inspiring and exciting landscape, particularly once we get through the first half of the day.


THURS OCT 21.

Today begins with the Moon in pragmatic Taurus conjunct Uranus and square Saturn, which can see a need to shoulder the responsibility of making dynamic changes or getting settled into a new atmosphere, routine, or practical orientation. This can see the earlier part of the day focused on menial tasks, duties, responsibilities, and can be simultaneously a slog that we just have to get through, while also motivated to make exciting or dynamic changes or improvements. Evening can see a more indulgent and exciting but easy going and relaxed atmosphere. Perhaps a reward or pat on the back for a job well done or task completed is called for, and we can feel satisfied with making some major strides and transformations. Late evening see’s the Moon sextile reflective Neptune and trine powerful Pluto, which see’s the evening wind down on a relaxing note and tomorrow can hold some more transformative efforts to really sink our teeth into something and nail things down to feel more stabilized and within our control. Tomorrow see’s the Sun’s annual ingress into intense and magnetic Scorpio as well, and we can feel less eager to compromise with others or oblige for the sake of harmony as we leave behind the harmony oriented sugar and spice of Libra for the more authentic, instinctual, less accommodating “do or die”,  "all or nothing" extremes of Scorpio. Positively, this can can see intense focus towards very specific ends and can be used constructively.


FRI OCT 22. Today see’s the Moon in indulgent and easy going Taurus square Jupiter while sextile dreamy Neptune and powerful Pluto. Mars and Pluto perfect their tense square which can see some intensity in the air, as people want whatever they want. This is a highly driven aspect that can see compromise feel out of the question, as a need to dig deep and make powerful changes becomes near obsessive. Much can be accomplished today as energy can be very focused with this aspect, but there is also ample creativity, idealism and the ability to stop and smell the flowers or truly appreciate the specialness of our particular circumstances. The Sun enters penetrating Scorpio at 9:51 PM, and there may be a lot to take in and reflect upon or strategize. If an unstoppable force meets an immovable object, a will finds a way, and people can be tired of compromising or needing to deal with others, so a more subversive, secretive, or indirect approach can be considered. Perhaps it’s just a case of needing to reflect a bit on our true desires, or in the very least, the strategies we deploy in the time ahead towards achieving them and making them real. Relaxation, grounding with creature comforts, tuning into our intuitive faculties and reflecting, visualizing, and getting in touch with both body and spirit can soothe the nervous system and settle it down before the Moon enters a more busy and talkative phase around 1 AM PST. 


SAT OCT 23.

The Moon in Gemini trines Mercury in Libra  and Saturn in Aquarius, and this can emphasize communications, social obligations or errands and things that need to get done in the local environment, or even just catching up on texts or phone calls and exchanging news. A lunar opposition to Venus in Sagittarius can even see a lot of traveling around or dealing with others at a distance, and the talkative Gemini Moon’s sextile to Chiron suggests news or communications can boost morale and feel encouraging compassionate, and supportive. This weekend can see a lot to adapt to, and things going on, or communications to catch up with or news to exchange with siblings, neighbors, people in our locale or in our inbox. The Moon trine Saturn suggests this all revolves around increasing stability and security somehow. There may be a lot to keep up with, and much can be going on socially, interpersonally, and a lot of tooing and froing, chatter, and multiple channels of communication open, or a lot of perspectives to take on board, and perhaps even some learning experiences through our relationships or interactions with others, or a strong drive for lively debate, exchange, learning, or philosophical discussion can arise as well. A chatty and stimulating day.


SUN OCT 24.

 Today see’s the Moon in multitasking and curious Gemini making indulgent and expansive aspects to Mercury and Jupiter and a loopy square to Neptune while opposite explorative Sagittarius. Curiosity is piqued. We can’t know everything even if we want to, but it’s easy to talk. It’s also easy to spin tall tales, over exaggerate or maybe omit something kind of important or misinterpret something. People are loopy and dreamy, but friendly, curious, and creative today, and there’s still a lot to adapt and adjust to coming out of Mercury’s shadow. Dust is still settling and there’s a lot of thinking, talking and planning going on. Talking is fun, and ideas are many and numerous, even if people’s nervous systems are a little fried and people feel like they’ve been put through a bit of a spin cycle. Energy kicks up even more with a lunar trine to Mars in the afternoon and things can be fun, dynamic, and motivating, -even if physical and mental energy is still sort of lagging. The Mars link say’s “ONWARD!” In spite of Neptune causing vague hungover feelings. Relationships can be mysterious, stimulating and engaging, and a source of longing as well. Reaching out and talking with others can help take some of the edge off of the uncertain feeling lunar/Neptune dynamic. All in all, a good Sunday to dream, think, talk, and exchange ideas, -and delegate if you feel overloaded and in need of some rest at any point.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF SEP 27-OCT 3 2021




MON SEP 27.

Today begins with the Moon in talkative and busy Gemini squaring Neptune while trine Mercury and Jupiter.  With Mercury stationed retrograde in Libra, it can feel like the universe is set to “spin cycle”. This Mercury station can feel particularly disorienting, with the Moon in Gemini squaring Neptune, attention can be split, and there can be a lot of communications and things going on in the local environment that are disorienting and it can feel a bit chaotic or confusing. Lunar trines to Mercury and Jupiter magnify this even more, and interpersonally there’s a lot of communications to keep up with. Venus in sensitive Scorpio is trine Neptune, square Jupiter, and opposite Uranus, and this can see a lot of highly unusual circumstances going on interpersonally, financially, commercially, or creatively. Compassion is high, but so is unpredictability and unconventionality. People need a lot of space and freedom to explore their emotions, and there can be extreme's of circumstances that create an unpredictable feeling atmosphere. Today can see a lot of "catch up" going on, as social and interpersonal shifts occur, and the Mercury retrograde in Libra can see a feeling of being between two worlds or approaching a crossroads. This can bring a lot of contacts, old and new, entering into the fold or the periphery, and between now and the Mercury direct station, there can be a lot to reflect upon, and information to gather so that bridges can be constructed between worlds. The Venus/Neptune trine adds a feeling of surreality and serendipity to everything, and we can feel highly attuned and sensitive to the environment and subtle nuances. 




TUES SEP 28

The Moon enters security oriented Cancer today at 6:34 AM PST, where it squares the Sun and Mars in Libra, and Chiron in Aries. There can be a lot of action going on and there can be push to get on the same page as others, although there can also be some challenges and perhaps some vulnerability or weaknesses as well. There can be an impatience or irritability in the maths today, and the lunar square to the Sun can emphasize the importance of making sure our own needs are met while also still cooperating with others. Finding a balance between our own needs and with what’s going on in the environment can be the primary challenge of today, and the lunar square to Mars is very action oriented, and security, comfort and safety can be a primary motivator.  A Mercury/Pluto square is almost exact, and will be exact tomorrow at 24 degrees. This can see impactful news, or transformations going on interpersonally or within the local environment or home. Some of it can be really intense, but there can also be some very beneficial contacts occurring now that can feel somewhat “fated”. Intensity of circumstance can play a roll in whatever is unfolding now, and news received or things occurring over the next few days can make impact, commercially, financially, interpersonally, etc. Overall, today can be a very action oriented day and it’s possible that it can feel a bit high pressure as a lot can be going on. Significant shifts can be taking place regarding interpersonal contacts, meet ups, etc. 



WED SEP 29.

Today see’s the Moon in security oriented Cancer trine Venus in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces, sextile Uranus in Taurus, opposite Pluto and square Mars in Libra. This can see a very dynamic day and there can be pleasant exchanges interpersonally that can contribute to a feeling of well being. A lunar square to Chiron can see a bit of vulnerability but there is a lot of compassion in the air and a desire to smooth things over and make things easier and more pleasant and calm amidst a lot of dynamic changes. It can be an exciting atmosphere and there can be some huge shifts going on as people are brought together under highly unusual circumstances. It’s possible that contacts established (or reestablished) now can have beneficial impact down the line. There can also be experimental financial or commercial initiatives taking place now as well, and Venus in Scorpio can be focused on investments or merging of resources. There can be a lot to talk about in the coming days, and the atmosphere can be fun, exciting, and experimental under the Leo lunation that begins tomorrow early evening. The Cancer lunation can be focused on settling in and getting comfortable after a period of adjustment or musical “chairs.” There are a lot of social and interpersonal shifts occurring now and there can be a lot of contacts to keep up with. Venus squaring Jupiter can feel larger than life, and Venus also forms a sextile to Pluto today as well while trine Neptune, so things can truly feel surreal and even divinely guided as major and impactful transformations are underway. A highly unusual time, with fateful contacts. A lot of serendipity. The universe is working in mysterious ways right now, so having an open mind and being gentle with ourselves and others through these dynamic changes can help get the most out of these configurations. Late night see’s the Mercury/Pluto square perfect, so there can be some very impactful news or communications or interpersonal or commercial initiatives can experience a crescendo moment tonight and tomorrow. As they say in Kung Pow Enter The Fist, “It will be significant.”


THURS SEP 30.

Today see’s us under the perfection of the Mercury/Pluto square, which can see some significant contacts, news, or social/ interpersonal or commercial initiatives reach some sort of transformative turning point that can make an impact for some time to come. Nothing happening now is “random”, and it can feel as if things are being guided by some higher forces. Granted, this is a Mercury retrograde, so allow for some delays, indecision, hiccups or changes of plan. This whole period is best used to gather information, make contacts, build bridges, expand contacts, and navigate what will ultimately represent a sort of crossroads for everyone. If you feel uncertain or indecisive between now and then, just remember that it’s okay to make mistakes or change your mind, Mercury in Libra needs to weigh the pros and cons of everything before getting off of a fence or committing to a particular direction, so being in a sort of “free fall” or experimental frame can actually be an asset right now, as it provides room to maneuver. Today can see pleasant contacts and social experiences with the Moon trine Venus, but there can also be an undercurrent of intensity coming from certain quarters to navigate with the lunar/Pluto opposition. Embracing the intensity of changes and releasing any tendency towards jealousy, or a desire to control other people if that’s a tendency that exists at all in your character, will get you through any potential discomfort this particular configuration may pose. For the most part however, there’s a lot of diplomacy and pleasantness in these configurations. The Moon enters theatrical Leo in the early evening, where it will oppose Saturn and Pluto simultaneously, and this can see some underlying tension, challenge, or a possible undercurrent of drama, passion, intensity, or possible competitiveness to navigate. Hopefully, any potential pettiness can be set aside for a focus on social grace, respect, peace, getting along, humanitarianism, and dignity.


FRI OCT 1.

Today can be socially dynamic and exciting, it certainly isn’t boring, with the Moon in fun seeking Leo sextile the Sun and Mars in socially oriented Libra, while trine Chiron, square Uranus and opposite Saturn. There can be some unusual dynamics to navigate, but there’s an emphasis on fun, excitement, play, passion and social enjoyment with the Moon in Leo making pleasant contacts to the Libra planets. There can be supportive relationships, socially and otherwise, and even if there are some subtle challenges, inhibitions, or a need for some self restraint, self control, pacing, or slight holding back for whatever reason, there’s an air of excitement, and there can be some surprising exchanges and a dynamic atmosphere. This can be a fun way to kick off the weekend and there can be parties, get togethers, or creative endeavors to enjoy. Saturn might damper spontaneity just a bit or create some obstacle or other that means maybe we can’t let loose as much as we may want to or there’s something else we have to consider that keeps us grounded in reality or practicality a bit, but there’s still plenty to enjoy. There may be a bit of competitiveness in the social atmosphere to navigate but nothing too terrible, as Mars is in diplomatic Libra after all. 


SAT OCT 2.

Today can see a slight continuation of yesterday’s proclivity towards enjoyment with the Moon in Leo sextile Mercury in Libra, opposite Jupiter, square Uranus, and Venus. Letting loose a desire to control things will help get the best out of these impassioned and indulgent configurations. The lunar square to Venus in Scorpio can see undercurrents of intensity, and the day can see a desire to indulge and have a good time. There can be enjoyable conversations today and even some bonding experiences are possible where a lot is shared between others. Overall, it seems this weekend is about letting our hair down a bit and having some pleasant experiences and indulging a bit. The Virgo lunation will shift the focus towards adapting to upcoming changes and shifts for yet another phase of musical chairs, where perhaps in some cases, the need for realism, problem solving, making improvements, practicality and crisis prevention, and being prepared takes precedence over simply having good times.


SUN OCT 3.

Today see’s the Moon in practical Virgo, bringing us back down to earth to navigate more changes and adjustments coming down the pike. The Moon forms a trine to Uranus so there can be some innovation or experimentation in the air, and a minor aspect the Moon makes to Mercury can see adjustments or last minute changes or revisions being discussed. Perhaps some of this was already anticipated. Venus in aspect to Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto wants to squeeze as much magic and enjoyment out of things as possible while it can, and the Virgo lunation can highlight the limits of time or resources and the need to economize wisely or plan ahead and be prepared for changes ahead. The week ahead can being on this note of planning and organizing the details of incoming shifts, and there can be a certain element of uncertainty or a feint longing to navigate this upcoming Monday, but a determination and fortitude to see things through and minimize potential problems along the way. This see’s a practical and down to earth end to the weekend.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF SEP 20-26 2021.




MON SEP 20.

We begin this week with the Full Moon in Pisces, which is exact at 4:55 PM PST, 7:55 PM EST.  This see’s the Moon opposite the Sun in Virgo, conjunct Neptune, and sextile Pluto. The major theme of Pisces is emphasized, letting go, release, rest, recovery. Essentially, a system reset, to make way for the planting of new see The Full Moon in Pisces is a good time to pay attention to the needs of body and soul and to recalibrate.  The Moon enters Aries late in the evening, 8:13 PM PST, 11:13 PM EST, setting a more energetic tone for the remaining first half of the week, and this can highlight new initiatives, interpersonally, socially, commercially, or otherwise. 


TUES SEP 21.

Today see’s the Moon in independent Aries, opposite Mars in partnership oriented Libra, sextile Saturn, conjunct Chiron and trine Juno. There may be certain weaknesses or vulnerabilities we are aware of, and perhaps a conflict between our own needs and those of others is highlighted, but there’s a determination to create some stability between the two. There can also be the presence of supportive relationships. The square Venus has made to Saturn lets up today, and only the opposition to Uranus remains. The Venus/Uranus opposition highlights a need for freedom to be our unique selves, and it can be difficult to want to forge binding commitments. This is an experimental aspect that emphasizes exploration and interpersonal exchanges that encourage freedom and independence. This aspect discourages insecure clinging, possessiveness, or fear based interacting, and encourages developing appreciation for your own and others unique qualities, talents and contributions. This can be an uplifting and exciting time, and can see some unusual situations unfolding interpersonally, socially and financially. This aspect certainly isn’t boring. 


WED SEP 22.

The Sun makes it’s annual ingress into Libra today. Happy birthday Libra! The Moon in Aries opposes Mercury in Libra, squares Pluto, and sextiles Jupiter today. There could be some big news, or some communications that make an impact today. There could be some indecision or it could be a challenge to get on to the same page as others somehow, or a problem to resolve. But the sextile to Jupiter is generous and there could be help on hand if there are challenges to push through. There’s a determination here with the Aries lunation. There could be some intensity to navigate but optimism, positive thinking, and generosity helps to overcome any potential glitches or unexpected hiccups. There may be some delays or unexpected blockages to deal with that will require improvisation. 


THURS SEP 23.

The Moon enters earthy Taurus at 5:38 AM PST, where it squares Saturn in Aquarius. This can see a need for resilience as there may be some sort of delays, blockages, patience, or hard work required. The lunar conjunction to Uranus can see excitement, surprises, or a lot of innovation and applied creativity, perhaps challenges have created a need for experimentation or some last minute revisions. A lunar quincunx to Mars can see some nervous tension or irritability, and may highlight a need to make some adjustments. Later the Moon opposes Venus and this can once again highlight the conflict between our own needs and those of others, and a need to find balance. With the Moon in Taurus, this can be in regards to practical or physical realities, and adjustments are needed.  There’s a really “experimental” atmosphere under these configurations and nothing is set in stone.


FRI SEP 24.

The Moon in Taurus opposes Venus, and conjuncts Uranus. There’s a need for greater understanding of give and take, and there may be some limitations that need to be overcome, or some financial or material haggling required. The lunar conjunction to Uranus is resourceful and innovative, and there can be a quirky weirdness to the atmosphere. A quincunx to Juno can see a need to strike a balance between taking care of ourselves and taking care of others, or taking care or financial or material responsibilities. Later on, a lunar square to Jupiter, trine to powerful Pluto, and sextile to Neptune can see a more indulgent atmosphere. Perhaps some positive breakthroughs have occurred that can see something to celebrate, or in the very least, there could be something to feel relieved or optimistic about.


SAT SEP 25.

 The Moon is in late Taurus for the first part of today, squaring Jupiter, trine Pluto, with a trine building up to the Sun. This can see a focus on social indulgence, and on things going on in the local environment, as the Moon is gearing up to enter Gemini in the evening. Today can see an earthy focus on feeling good, self nurturing, stability, and getting practical things out of the way to clear the way for a more busy and social evening and rest of the weekend. There can be a lot of optimism with the lunar square to Jupiter, but if there is a need to get anything done, this aspect tends towards laziness and indulgence, so this can be a rather slow moving day, but the lunar trine to Pluto lends some focus and determination towards something specific. The Moon enters Gemini at 5:36 PM PST, 8:36 PM EST. This see’s a trine to the Sun and Mars in Libra, Saturn in Aquarius, while still holding a trine to Pluto. This can see a dynamic and social atmosphere, and there can be a talkative, indulgent, and pleasantly stimulating environment. 


SUN SEP 26.

Today carries over the talkative and social atmosphere of yesterday, there can be a lot of forward momentum going on in regards to social commitments , meet ups, or get togethers. The Moon sextiles Chiron, so whatever is going on now can be boosting morale and there could be something to feel good about. The Mars/Saturn trine can aid in a sense of stability and a sense of mutual social and interpersonal support and dependability. There may be a lot of experimentation and rethinking needing to happen, as Mercury stations retrograde today until Oct 18th, in the partnership oriented sign of Libra. This period can see a need to go back over certain things, maybe there’s loose ends that need to be tied up or thought about before deciding upon a certain direction. Mercury retrograde in Libra can be about a need to gather more intelligence before arriving at a definite decision or direction, or a need to think about things before forming a plan that could have a significant, life changing impact. This can see us feeling between worlds for a spell, or wrestling with a need to make a decision about a fork in the road.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF SEP 13-19 2021




MON SEP 13.

We begin the week with the Moon in adventurous Sagittarius, sextile Mercury in Libra, trine Chiron, square Neptune. The Sun in Virgo opposes Neptune this week, indicating an acute awareness of problems, and fears around unknowns, along with a need to surrender and place trust in the divine that you are being guided. The early morning hours can see some beneficial contacts or communications, or positive news, prayers, or perceptions that can boost morale amidst confusing or uncertain times. As the day progresses we see a lunar sextile to Jupiter in Aquarius, while also squaring the Sun in Virgo, and this can see a boost in optimism that can help motivate productivity, improvements, or increase efficiency. The Sagittarius lunation can add a sense of adventure or faith to things and even if there is a lot of uncertainty, or a lot of tension to navigate, there's also creative problem solving as well as a philosophical attitude, even if there are some demoralizing influences and things aren't exactly feeling 100 percent safe, certain, or secure. We can be brimming with ideas, and possibilities can be all over the place, with a lot of things being improvised. While we can be acutely aware of all of the things that could go wrong, there is also a determination to make the best of things and look for the silver linings in our circumstances. Late night sees the Moon square Mars in 29 degrees Virgo, and this can see a peak in tensions, or a key point in actions being taken, as this is the final and most urgent degree of Virgo. There can be a need to overcome pessimism. Mars changes signs tomorrow, entering partnership oriented Libra, and this can see a cycle where a lot of action is happening interpersonally, and there is a need to bring balance to situations. There can be subtle controversy or some vulnerability, insecurity, and things are being shaken up, but there is also solidarity, perhaps even across great distances,  cultures, or differences, and there is a sense of shared purpose or a common cause. 


TUES SEP 14. 

Today sees the Moon enter stoic and serious Capricorn, making a sleek sextile to Venus in mysterious and instinctual Scorpio, while squaring Mars in 29 degrees Virgo, and Chiron in Aries, while going on to trine Uranus. There's a determined, somewhat secretive element in these configurations, and actions are being taken to ultimately create more balance, harmony and cohesion, but this can come with some upheaval, or there is a need to break free from something or someone. The lunar link to Venus is emotionally and financially conservative, and playing it's cards close to it's chest, or being strategic, -perhaps to avoid either making oneself vulnerable to attacks, or to avoid upsetting others. Venus is not the most comfortable in Scorpio, and can bring out extremes. This can see obsessiveness about something or someone, and can bring about submerged shadows or highlight the darker underbelly of love, but it can also highlight deep and mysterious bonds that transcend distance, time, resistance, challenge, silence, or tribulation. Venus in Scorpio is about a love of power, or the power of love. There can be some surprising or liberating experiences, or highly unconventional situations unfolding, interpersonally, financially, or creatively. Mars enters Libra at 5:14 PM PST, placing the emphasis on partnerships, interactions with others, and bringing a need for cooperation, harmony, and balance.

WED SEP 15.

Today see's an earthy triplicity between the Moon in disciplined Capricorn, the Sun in conscientiousness Virgo, and Uranus in sensual, and practical Taurus. The Moon in Capricorn also makes a square to Mercury in Libra and Chiron in Aries, while conjoining Pluto. This could see a whole lot of changes underway, and perhaps some very big things are being contemplated or discussed, or plans are being formed that could involve experimenting with working together with others somehow. There could be some vulnerability or subtle tensions present to navigate, and a need for diplomacy, economy and practicality amidst some intense and dynamic undercurrents. There could also be some indecision to grapple with around practical matters. Later on, the Moon sextiles Neptune, and this can see feelings of relief, catharsis, letting go, and release, as well as highlight feelings of idealism, compassion, sensitivity, and longing. This can also see an increased focus on creativity. Things are definitely in experimental and unusual territory, and we may be following powerful instincts and using our intuition to navigate unusual circumstances and dynamic changes that require experimentation or innovation. Interpersonally, there can be a lot going on under the surface. Venus in Scorpio squaring Saturn can see some strong and enduring feelings present, but there is inhibition, shyness, or something that blocks expression or consummation, whether internally, externally, or circumstantially. Compelling forces could be at work in certain dynamics, and sublimation may be required for the time being. There could be something unusual or unorthodox about what's going on right now with relationships, finances, interpersonal dynamics, or creative endeavors that requires "making due" somehow. A lot of subtle undercurrents can be going on under the surface, and the Capricorn lunation has a stoic, solid duty, "taking care of business" vibe that can be experienced as somewhat somber, particularly through the first portion of the day, as there may be a lot of work to do, and a need to stay on a grind, adhere to a time table, and focus on the business at hand. The lunar link to Hygeia, the asteroid of health and healing, can highlight matters relating to physical, mental or emotional health somehow as well, and this can come up in conversation, and actions can be taken to bring more balance to these areas. Late night sees a lunar trine form to Mars, which will gather strength tomorrow, and this can bring a liberating feeling or see us enter new terrain somehow, particularly socially, interpersonally, or commercially. Musical chairs and dynamic changes. 


FRI SEP 17.

The Moon in Aquarius has brought a feeling of freedom and part of embracing freedom comes uncertainty. The only thing certain however, in freedoms opposite, is the fact that you know the limits of your engagement, and that the bars of certain karmic entrapments will always be there, along with their consequences, lest they are questioned and overthrown. Today the Moon is squaring Uranus in Taurus and trine Mercury in Libra while conjunct both Jupiter and Saturn. This can see a very experimental atmosphere, and this can take us into wild, unpredictable, or liberating territory. There may be some unexpected hiccups to deal with. The maths point to eliminating what has been a burden and weighing us down this weekend. The lunar conjunction to Saturn in Aquarius can see some work that needs to be done or a somewhat disciplined, perhaps subtly challenged mindset in the first portion of the day, but as the day wears on, things can feel more expansive and we can feel more open to taking the odd gamble or being less risk averse and more open to embracing an innovative or experimental approach. There can be some pleasant diversions, surprises, or conversations, perhaps even some serendipity is at work somehow. Communications can play a key role in today and there can be news and information exchanged that can be beneficial and perhaps help us feel more at ease about certain intense changes that have taken us into uncharted territory somehow. With Mercury trine Jupiter and square Pluto, weird times can see us guided partly by instinct and partly by serendipity, and changes going on interpersonally, financially, or commercially can feel larger than life and be making a big impact on our nervous system. Some communications can be laden with intensity, and with Mercury squaring Pluto this can highlight obsessive focus, power dynamics, or even fears around relationships or work partnerships, or just an intense preoccupation with something. Perhaps it's the unpredictable or uncertain nature of things right now that generates intensity, but the weekend seems to indicate that the focus shifts towards a more positive mindset and a more positively experienced intensity. 


SAT SEP 18.

This morning sees the moon in Aquarius trine Mercury in Libra while conjunct Jupiter in Aquarius, and this can see idealism particularly high, and can see an amotionally generous atmosphere. There can be good news or positive or fortunate exchanges, with a friendly and perhaps somewhat indulgent atmosphere. In the afternoon, the Moon enters dreamy and imaginative Pisces, where it goes on to trine Venus in intense Scorpio, and this can see a reflective, restful, wistful and mystical mood descend upon the remainder of the weekend. With Venus in do or die Scorpio squaring off with Saturn and opposite Uranus in Taurus, relationships, finances and creative endeavors are being shaken up and experimental terrain is being entered. This can feel both exciting and scary but the Pisces lunation is inspired, creative and imaginative. With Venus squaring Saturn there is a holding back that is present so as not to turn the carriage into a pumpkin too quickly and to maintain a sense of proportion, realism and not walk any planks that can't be turned back from. The landscape is wild and it could feel like anything could happen. Mercury trine Jupiter and square Pluto could see downloads and exchanges of large amounts of information, or discussions revolving around intense or even taboo topics, and it's possible to be taken into confidence or to be placed into the role of confidant. It can be easy to over share, but these aspects have a knack for doing so with the right people. 

SUN SEP 19.

Today sees the Moon in Pisces trine Venus in Scorpio, conjunct Neptune and sextile Uranus in Taurus.  This is a simultaneously restful and restless vibe, as we build up to the full moon tomorrow. There can be some changes to prepare for, but the Moon/Venus/Neptune contacts prefer to take it easy and focus on feeling good. There can be some pleasant contacts today, and the configurations tend to favor an easy going schedule as opposed to a demanding one or just having too much going on all at once. There's definitely a creative vibe in the atmosphere and there can be some highly unusual situations unfolding. The tail end of the weekend is restful but also energetically preparing for some more dynamic changes.

ASTROLOGY FPR THE WEEK OF SEP 6-12 2021




MON SEP 6.

We begin this week with the Moon in Virgo, and today sees the New Moon occur at 5:52 PM PST. With the New Moon emphasizing connections to Uranus, adapting to change and improvising are key elements. There may have been situations in which necessity or crisis aversion or management (Virgo) has required dramatic changes that have seemed spontaneous, last minute, experimental, or very outside of the box. The trine between Venus and Jupiter helps us focus on the positive, and we can feel supported by like minded connections, while the Venus square to Pluto indicates that changes have all occurred through some intensity, and the changes unfolding can be far reaching and have lasting impact, which can bring up intense feelings. It can feel good to ban together with others through intense transformations, as if the universe is assembling little pirate ships of people to weather the changes. This week can see more forward movement. The New Moon opposes Neptune while trine Uranus, indicating the unknowns we may face and the need to improvise, adapt, and overcome. This can involve working together with others somehow. Tomorrow can see some actions taken or signs that things will begin to unfold that can have a big impact. 


TUES SEP 7.

Today the Moon in Virgo conjuncts Mars, while opposite Neptune and trine power broker Pluto, and this can see the beginning of some power moves being made in order to navigate uncertain times. The Sun also conjoins Mars, highlighting the need to take action steps. The Moon enters partnership oriented Libra at 8:20 PM PST. The Moon forms a trine to Saturn, indicating some solid partnerships or agreements being established, and serious decisions could be involved.


WED SEP 8.

Today sees the Libra Moon trine Saturn in Aquarius, and conjunct Mercury, and this can see some serious discussions or agreements unfolding, or news can come in that means business. With a lunar opposition to Chiron, there can be an element of vulnerability, but it can be helpful to know that other people have your back and you're not alone. With Mars trine Pluto, big decisions are on the line, and this can highlight actions that need to be taken out of necessity that can pack quite a punch, and carry weight, power, and significance. These are no small potatoes, things being considered and weighed here are a big deal, and there can be a lot to consider. Whatever is decided this week can open up a whole new world of possibilities and this can set the stage for some beneficial developments, contacts, and agreements. It can be a case of "teamwork makes the dream work", but there are probably certain people in more powerful positions than others.


THURS SEP 9.

Today the Moon in Libra conjoins Mercury, Venus, trines Jupiter and squares Pluto, and this can see some big changes unfolding. There can be optimism and hope present, even if things are driven by a sort of intensity that make big transformations necessary in some way. It can be clear that some beneficial arrangements are possible. A lunar quincunx to Neptune can see a bit of a martyr vibe, or in the very least it can feel as if sacrifices must be made in one way or another which can see some big decisions on the line. The lunar trine to Jupiter can see some good fortune, or a generous atmosphere. The Moon enters emotionally intense Scorpio at 11:05 PM, to be followed by Venus tomorrow.


FRI SEP 10.

Today sees the Moon in Scorpio conjunct Venus and trine Jupiter in late Aquarius, emphasizing the Venus/Jupiter trine. This can see some positive vibrations, and optimism can be boosted by these configurations. There can even be some strokes of good luck, and some beneficial contacts being established where forces and powers can be merged and combined in mutually beneficial ways. Although this could occur through some challenges, as indicated by a lunar square to Saturn. There could be some tension, challenges or uncertainty to navigate. A lunar opposition to Uranus can indicate some wild cards, shocks, surprises, or a need to take some risks or improvise somehow. There could also be some differences between others to navigate or alchemize somehow. 


SAT SEP 11.

Today sees the Moon in Scorpio make a sextile to the Sun in Virgo, a tribe to Neptune, square to Jupiter, and opposition to Uranus, highlighting forward progress being made towards transforming situations and innovating solutions, perhaps by merging forces and taking leaps of faith into the unknown or taking calculated risks. The lunar square to Jupiter can see an indulgent atmosphere, and the Scorpio lunation can be pensive, deep and reflective, as there can be a lot to take in. Dynamics are shifting as well, and new elements and possibilities are entering the fold. With Venus now in deep, do or die Scorpio, there is a lot on the line, and a need to dig deep into energetic and/or financial reserves, as well as transmute darker, more emo energies into gold. There is a deep creative potential here as well, and it's possible to spin something beautiful out of life's rougher edges. The Moon goes on to sextile Mars and Pluto, and this can see some situations positively transformed and a trajectory improved.


SUN SEP 12.

The Moon enters broadminded traveller Sagittarius at 1:34 AM PST, and this can end the week on a note of increased possibilities that can create a feeling of stability within a lot of unpredictability. A lunar sextile to Saturn and trine to Chiron can boost morale and also create a feeling of groundedness, or in the very least, a sensation that some stability is being achieved through means of innovation or taking calculated risks. Even though there's a lot of uncertainty, next week begins on a note of more optimism and faith as new possibilities are unfolding.

Astrology For Aug 30-Sep 5 2021




MON AUG 30.

We begin the week with Mercury having entered Libra, while the Moon is in curious, multitasking Gemini. The emphasis is in harmonizing and cooperation, perhaps amidst tensions or a frazzling atmosphere with a lot to adapt to (Mars in Virgo.) There's certainly some powerful shifts occurring, in an attempt to be ready to manage whatever comes around the corner next. So, preparation, adaptation, and cooperation are ongoing themes. Today can see a busy and talkative atmosphere, with an accent on banter, sociability, and light interactions, with a background that emphasizes  staying on top of changeable situations, adapting, contemplating huge shifts, and being prepared. The moon synching up with Venus and making edgy aspects to Mars and Neptune suggests a need for helpfulness, compassion, understanding, and doing whatever we can to make things easier and more harmonious for ourselves and others.


TUES AUG 31.

Today begins on a note of adventurousness, expansion, taking care of business, and perhaps venturing into the unknown, with the Moon in multitasking Gemini squaring Mars in Virgo, while forming a trine to Venus, Jupiter, and a square to Neptune. We may not know exactly what the future has in store, but certain things are set into motion today and can come into alignment that will at least open horizons and possibilities. Later on, the Moon forms a square to Mercury, emphasizing communication, movement, and perhaps some subtle tensions to mitigate. This can be a bit of a nervous energy, that can be entertaining but also somewhat flighty and superficial or surface level. There can be a lot going on in the local environment, neighborhood, or in regards to communications, the written and spoken word, a lot of banter, back and forth, errands, and what have you. This can be a lot to keep up with, and there can be an atmosphere of excitement. The Moon enters cozy Cancer around 10:26 PM PST, and this can place the focus on compassionate communications, or a desire to go within a protective shell and seek emotional replenishment. 


WED SEP 1.

Today sees the Moon in comfort seeking Cancer, sextile the Sun in Virgo, which can highlight all the things that need to be taken care of in order to improve comfort and security levels. There may be some vulnerability present or some raw nerves that need tending to, and there may be a need to improvise and innovate as the Moon forms a sextile to Uranus later on. The Moon in Cancer can see us sensitive to what's going on in the environment, and to all the changes that are occurring that may be taking us out of a comfort zone and needing to improvise a new one. 


THURS SEP 2.

Today can see some strongly emotive and creative energies, with the Moon in watery Cancer squaring Venus, sextile Mars, trine Neptune, and opposite Pluto. This can see an intense and impactful atmosphere, and there can be an earthy electricity in the air. Mars in Virgo wants to be productive, Neptune and Venus want to relax. Although, getting completely comfortable and secure can still require some work or for some adjustments or improvements to be made.  Mars trine Pluto has been navigating a lot of details, responding to crises, and driven towards problem solving and improvements, (Virgo), and this may have required some intense adjustments or transformations (Pluto.) This has been an ongoing process of innovation, and many of us are making things up as we go, while staying as methodical and security minded as possible. There can be some underlying tension or intensity to navigate under the surface today, but Venus in Libra still in harmony with Jupiter helps to cultivate harmony and diplomacy. 


FRI SEP 3.

Today might see some challenges as the Moon enters celebratory Leo to oppose Saturn, there may be some shyness, inhibition or poor timing to contend with, but a sextile to Mercury in diplomatic Libra helps smooth things over, and could bring the possibility of good news through others, or simply the need to cooperate. Evening time sees a lunar trine to Chiron and Juno, suggesting connections with others boost our morale or perhaps there's something of a modest gain or milestone to celebrate that boosts optimism. Nevertheless, things can be chaotic and there is still some instability, unknowns, or surprises to navigate.


SAT SEP 4.

Today can see the need to improvise around challenges, delays, blockages, or to summon resilience in the face of instability. The Moon in theatrical Leo squares Uranus in Taurus while opposing Saturn and tribe Chiron. Challenges may require courage and a willingness to take calculated risks. These aspects can see some unexpected shifts, but perhaps this can also see some good fortune, in the very least some generosity and high ideals, with a lunar opposition to Jupiter later on. This can see a somewhat indulgent atmosphere unfold in the later hours of Saturday. Perhaps a good time for a good time. The weekend closes out on a note of needing to get better organized and take care of details after a rather fun seeking atmosphere. 


SUN SEP 5.

This morning See's the Moon in Leo sextile Venus and opposite Jupiter, which can still see the emphasis on enjoyment, pleasure and good times in the early morning hours. The Moon enters Virgo at 4:06 PM PST, which shifts the focus towards preparing for the week ahead, which looks set to begin on a dynamic note that will require a lot of adaptation, improvisation and quick problem solving. Venus trine Jupiter is generous and indulgent, and it might be wise to reign in impulsive or lavish tastes in order to preserve security and be economical. Monday could see an active day with a lot to take care of, and there can be more shifts in dynamics or situations that can require an adaptable mindset. Decisions will need to be made eventually when it comes to preventing, mitigating or avoiding crises, and there can be an atmosphere of uncertainty and things being up in the air or "at sea". Monday is a New Moon, and this New Moon encourages a flexible mindset when it comes to navigating changeable circumstances.
