Week Ahead – Monday, September 10th through Sunday, September 16th

Happy Sunday everyone! As we move into our second week of September, the earth element is very strong and water follows closely behind. Earth energy wants us to be practical, where water wants us to pay attention to our emotional needs. We have the Moon in Virgo right now, so its a good day for doing chores that get us organized and more efficient, that help us prepare for the changing season, or focusing on health-related tasks. Venus moves into Scorpio today as well, a sign she isn’t too comfortable with. She will be in Scorpio longer than her usual 3-week journey through the signs, due to her going retrograde during the first week of October. Let’s see what this week has in store for us.


Monday morning is fairly quiet and good for practical tasks. The Moon will go very briefly Void of Course mid-afternoon before moving into balancing Libra. As we move into the early evening the Moon will reach its New lunation. New Moons are a time for new beginnings and in Libra creating order is the focus, not necessarily through tidying or organizing as was the case while the Moon was in Virgo, but rather through pleasing interactions with others and aesthetics in our environment. We have also had a challenging energy building up for our values, relationships, and ambitions for the past few days, and this is now highlighted by the New Moon. We are being asked to see if our actions are in alignment with what we say (or think) we value. Adding to this is Uranus’ tie to this energy, which means our cages are being rattled by the Universe as a way to get us unstuck in order to be more open to new possibilities.


Tuesday sees warrior planet Mars moving into Aquarius, where it spent a good deal of time over the summer when he was retrograde. Mars in Aquarius can make us feel less motivated about going after traditional goals and more motivated to pursue spiritual or emotional drives. So if you were feeling unmotivated and lazy over the past few months, this is the boost you need to pick up the pace and get moving. We have the Sun in two transits today as well; Sun sextile Jupiter and Sun trine Pluto. making it a good day for getting an early start on the day. The Sun/Jupiter aspect infuses us with clarity and optimism, and we are more able to see the bigger picture. The Sun/Pluto aspect helps us to get rid of anything that has become unnecessary and outworn in our lives. It gives us the chance to take back and own our own power. just before midnight the Moon will go Void of Course.


We have quite a bit happening today, starting off with a sextile between Jupiter and Pluto. Our mental and intuitive faculties are now enhanced and its a good time for sharing group ideas and insights. Venus is also busy today. She makes an opposition to Uranus to start, making our interactions with others full of surprises. We may see sudden changes in agreements now or erratic actions from those involved in a project. Be careful around financial situations under this transit because they can be more erratic and unstable at the moment. if at all possible, put off any serious agreements and decisions for a few days, or until this energy passes. Adding to this is a sextile between Venus and Saturn, making it a day for romantic yearnings, longing, and fantasies. It makes the perfect time to ask yourself if there is a dream of yours, perhaps one you had to shelve for a while, that you can now take down, blow off the dust, and make it come true. Last we have the Moon moving into Scorpio in the early evening, where our emotional charge and sensitivity increases. It’s a time where we need to be careful not to get swept away by irritability, mood-swings, hysteria, big and small excitements, and a sudden desire to quickly change everything over the next couple of days.


Thursday begins with a sextile between warrior planet Mars and the wounded healer Chiron. We can benefit from this energy boost, which helps us get the job done. It also brings a chance to take action that can bring about some healing resolutions to long-standing, ongoing problems you have been dealing with. Adding to this is an opposition between Mercury and Neptune, where inspired thinking, mental fantasy, imaginative ideas, and lucid dreams are likely. Our perceptions about reality can be a bit off and colored by wishful thinking and irrational conclusions, however. Doing a reality check with a trusted friend or advisor is a good idea, especially if you are trying to make important decisions right now. Friday is a quiet one for us with a Void of Course Moon in the morning that will last until after midnight.


Saturday starts us off with the Moon moving into Sagittarius in the wee hours of the morning. This is a great weekend energy for being adventurous, exploring and socializing. When the Moon is in Sagittarius our focus turns from inner soul searching to exploring the world around us. This lunar mood is very adventurous, active and restless for exploration. We want to experience life first hand. we want to get outdoors, see the sights, connect with nature, go places we haven’t been before. We also have a trine between Mercury and Pluto, a positive aspect that helps us get to the heart of situations. Its a good vibe for mental activities that involve research, investigation, and concentration, adding to the already adventurous Sagittarius Moon.

Sunday is another one that is great for ideas and expressing them, with Mercury in a sextile with Jupiter. So we can take all of those facts, ideas, and investigative results from yesterday and place them in one coherent stream. This is a favorable influence for short trips, writing, teaching, studying, mailings, interviews, advertising and promotion, submitting applications and forms, and accurate observations. Venus will be making a challenging square to the Lunar North Node today as well, where we may start noticing that the people in our lives are not giving us the encouragement and support we need where fulfilling our life purpose is concerned. We could run into situations where someone who was giving us support suddenly backs away. Or we find that their actions interfere with what we are trying to do. Renegotiating our priorities in order to create balance may be needed as well. Venus also rules finances and resources so we could run into issues around possessions, resources, and finances that call for adjustments now. This isn’t a very long transit, lasting only a few days. So the things we come across may not be major issues. But if something significant does rear its head at this time, it could be a sign that we have something that needs to be looked at more closely.
