Monday September 4th-
At 6:29am Retrograde Mercury in Virgo trines Jupiter in Taurus- linking the Mind and Intellect with the planet of expansion and abundance. Mercury/Jupiter brings some very positive expansive energy into work, health, finances and abundance. Mercury trine Jupiter is great for travel, teaching, learning and expanding our minds. Conversations and contemplation get a boost today and can help you see the Bigger Picture. ‘The mind works like a parachute- it works best when it is open.’ Stay open minded today! This is the 2nd of 3 trines (the first was on 8/9) due to Mercury’s Underworld journey- so connect the dots to back then to see what is unfolding for you now. Remember that with Mercury Retrograde the focus is on internal expansion, rethinking and reviewing the past. Once he stations direct on 9/15 and picks up speed it will be time to start action on what you have realized- but for now stay internal and go deep.

Jupiter stations Retrograde at 15’34 Taurus at 10:11am- shifting the Planet of expansion and excess from outer focus to inner focus. It is interesting to note that Jupiter stations at the Solar Beltane Degree- one of the 4 Cross Quarter Days associated with the midpoint and height of the season. With Jupiter activating one of the Holy Solar Gateway degrees- we can pay attention to what is being activated in terms of birth, fertility, Union, earth and the environment, finances and more (things associated with the Solar Gate of Beltane & Taurus respectively). Jupiter likes to expand and grow- but when he heads into the Underworld that expansion needs to go down and in, not up and out. The growth comes via pruning and release. Pay attention to where your attention is drawn today and follow the flow of the Universe and where it is leading you. Remember that the Golden Shadow hides beneath the dark shadows we avoid. If your goal is to seek the Divine- you must be willing to descend to find it.

At 6:22pm the Sun in Virgo sesquiquadrates the Mean North Node in Aries and semisquares the Mean South Node in Libra, creating tension between the Conscious Self and ego and the Nodes of Destiny and Karma. With the Sun in tense aspect to both Nodes we could have some tension arise today/tonight around our path forward and where our ego is getting stuck. Too much Virgo/Libra energies of perfectionism, self criticism, focus on others and holding the self back can create issues with our need to take action, take a stand, have agency and make things happen (North Node in Aries). Tune into where you are up against your own self imposed limits and limiting beliefs and see beyond them tonight!


Tuesday September 5th-
At 8:10pm the Sun in Virgo sesquiquadrates Retrograde Pluto in Capricorn- creating tension between the Conscious Self and ego and the Lord of the Underworld. The Sun in Virgo is humble and service oriented, while Pluto is a power house who demands transformation and evolution. If we are playing small- NOW IS THE TIME TO STOP THAT. If we are so stuck in perfectionism and an old paradigm of consciousness of self criticism- now is the time to break free. Sun/Pluto can bring up power struggles and reveal the shadow that underlies dynamics with others. Be willing to see your piece but don’t own and take responsibility for all of it. Work on your part and release others to work on their end of things. This is not a time to control anyone or anything but yourself!


Wednesday September 6th-
At 4:24am Retrograde Neptune in Pisces opposes Pallas Athena in Virgo- creating tension between the Planet of Illusion and Idealism and the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess. Neptune/Pallas at best can amplify intuition, psychic ability and dreams- but the tense nature of the aspect can exacerbate issues with seeing reality, discerning Truth and being grounded. Neptune wants to float up and out- see the transcendent, the potential, what is possible! While Virgo is all about reality as it is appearing in this now moment. Rose colored glasses have to come off and we are challenged to straddle worlds- can we see the trees and the forest? Can we see potential and what is actually showing up right now in this moment? We can use this to bridge dreams and reality but first we have to see where these two meet and where they do not, and further what is even possible when it comes to them meeting. As this transit occurs in early morning hours- pay attention to your dreams upon waking for important messages from the Unconscious.

The Sun cojoins Retrograde Mercury at 13’36 Virgo at 7:09am, marking the midway point of the current Mercury Retrograde journey we are in. Sun/Mercury can bring important insights, aha moments, communications or information to Light- so pay attention to all the things you hear, say or otherwise receive as information today. The Sun/Mercury conjunction is tightly trine a standstill Jupiter (9/4-9/8) which is HUGE!!! Opportunities to travel, teach, learn and/or expand your mind and Spirit in some way are to be embraced. Use the incredibly positive energies present wisely!

At 6:33pm Retrograde Mercury in Virgo sesquiquadrates Retrograde Pluto in Capricorn- bringing tension between the Mind and Intellect (who is in his Underworld phase) and the Lord of the Underworld. Mercury/Pluto can be great for penetrating communication and getting to the root and Truth of matters. It’s excellent for therapy, research and investigation. Yet the nature of the aspect is tense so this can also unearth power/control dynamics and make for intense communication. Steering clear of playing the victim or tyrant is key! Focus on seeing Truth and attending to reality for best results.


Thursday September 7th-
At 12:13am Pallas Athena in Virgo quincunxes the Mean North Node in Aries and semisextiles the South Node in Libra, creating tension between the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess and the Nodes of Destiny and Karma. Pallas wants to see things clearly and be very discerning when in Virgo but the tense aspect to the North Node can make it easy to default to karmic patterns of keeping the peace and not speaking up or saying/doing what needs to be done. With Pallas Athena triggering the upcoming Neptune/North Node quincunx right now (yesterday to today) PAY ATTENTION to what is unfolding in the last 24 hours- and particularly pay attention to dreams that come in overnight. Pallas wants to see the Truth at any cost- but the Neptune/South Node quincunx makes it easy to check out, escape, be in denial and avoid reality. “The nature of illusion is that, when you see through it, it disappears.” ~Mooji

Retrograde Neptune in Pisces quincunxes Ceres in Libra at 12:34am- creating tension between the Planet of Sacrifice and Surrender and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. Mothers historically make a lot of sacrifices- for their children, families and for their relationships. The shadow of this plays out when the authentic self is sacrificed so that we are not living our true selves in these arenas of life. Codependency and enabling are unhealthy Neptune/Ceres patterns- as is being in relationship with someone who acts like your child or you are looking for them to parent you. Being aware of where we use addictions to numb out and just plain don’t want to face reality is key right now. Seeing relationships, home/family situations and our childhood past through a more realistic lens is necessary. In addition, having boundaries is key. Knowing when to say no is as important as knowing how to surrender the ego and say yes. Honest self check ins on where your own growth edge lies is needed. Today Ceres triggers the Neptune/South Node quincunx approaching (exact 9/22)- so pay attention to where Karmic patterns and paradigms are needing to be seen through and changed for GOOD.

At 3:47am Retrograde Pluto in Capricorn quincunxes Vesta in Gemini- creating tension between the Lord of the Underworld and the Priestess asteroid Goddess. Pluto/Vesta can unearth some intensity, shadow and even intentional manipulations going on behind the scenes. Communication and information sharing can be loaded- and there is a need to look beyond the surface to get to the Truth. Coming back to beginners mind- a space of openness and not knowing- is so important right now. Vesta is undergoing potent transits- with Eris, Neptune and the Nodes linking with her last week and then Pluto linking with her this week- It is a great time to ask- What is sacred to us? What are we devoted to? Where might we be devoted to our own perspective and way of seeing things at the expense of the Truth. Where do we need to take the blinders off to see clearly? Watch out for power/control dynamics and if you find that happening externally give some focus to the inner pattern that draws this into your experience. ‘If the outer reflects the inner, we may as well start at the Source’.

Retrograde Neptune in Pisces sesquiquadrates Juno in Leo at 8:41am- creating tension between the Higher Heart and the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. Neptune/Juno can be dreamy, idealistic, romantic and sweet- yet this is a tense aspect so we can also be out to lunch, wear rose colored glasses and see only the parts of reality that we want to see. Seeing with eyes wide open in Love and money situations is key.

At 9:40pm Ceres cojoins the Mean South Node at 26’57 Libra- aligning the Great Mother asteroid Goddess with the South Node of Karma. Ceres/South Node can bring up and confront us with some big patterns of self denial, sweeping things under the carpet, and keeping the peace at any cost. At best Ceres in Libra is about harmonious and balanced family relationships and home situations- but the shadow here is that we focus so much on others and their happiness that we deny ourselves. This can also magnify where any home/family situations happening are unfair, unbalanced, or unjust- with a need to ‘rebalance the scales’. There can also be attachments to things looking beautiful and peaceful on the surface- so much so that we avoid dealing with the shadow that is going on behind the scenes. All day today Ceres is magnifying what we are not wanting to look at – in relationships, partnerships and marriages- in home/family dynamics and relationships with parents, co-parents and children, and more. With Eris opposite Ceres last week, Neptune/South Node today and Pluto square her on Sunday- there is no escaping the need to pull back the veil and look at the Truth in relationships right now. Redressing imbalances is key to moving forward.


Friday September 8th-
At 1:25am Retrograde Mercury in Virgo seesquiquadrates the Mean North Node in Aries and semisquares the Mean South Node in Libra- creating tension between the Conscious Mind and Intellect and the Nodes of Destiny and Karma. With Mercury in the Underworld and in tense aspect to both nodes- communication and information incoming can be triggering, activating and/or intense in some way. Mercury is rethinking, reviewing and revising – so being willing to go over the past and see what is working and what is not is key. Where do you need to take action and speak up? Where are you doing too much peace keeping at the expense of this? See what needs to shift for best results.

The Sun in Virgo trines Retrograde Jupiter in Taurus at 7:12am, linking the Conscious Self and ego with the planet of Expansion and Abundance. From Monday September 4th through today we have had the Sun/Mercury conjunction with both trine Jupiter while he came to standstill to Station Retrograde. Sun/Jupiter is amazing for having confidence, going for it and taking risks. With both bodies in Earth signs this bodes well for work, health, finances and abundance. Something seeded right now has room to grow in HUGE ways. Be intentional about what you are setting into motion for best results.

At 7:58pm Mars in Libra sesquiquadrates Retrograde Uranus in Taurus- creating tension between the Will, Warrior and Drive and the Rebel and Revolutionary! Mars/Uranus can bring upheaval and upset but also liberation and freedom! With both bodies in Venus-ruled signs and Venus now moving direct- there can be some big shifts or changes incoming in relationships, finances, values and self-Love. Mars in Libra can be indecisive- so if we have been sitting on things and not taking action, Uranus may provide the light under our butts to get us going today! Watch out for this combination as it can be accident prone- but it IS great for choosing something radically different in the moment. “If you keep on doing the same old thing, you will keep on getting the same result.” If you want something different- take a risk today!


Saturday September 9th-
At 10:09am Retrograde Pluto in Capricorn trines Pallas Athena in Virgo- linking the Planet of Transformation and Empowerment with the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess. This is the only positive aspect Pallas makes this week- helping us to harness her powers of discernment and clarity and get to the bottom of things. Pluto/Pallas is great for therapy, research, investigation and getting to the Truth of matters. With both bodies in Earth signs this can play out in work, health, career and mundane life. Profound transformation and shifts of mind/perception are possible today!


Sunday September 10th-
At 1:04am now direct Venus cojoins Juno at 12’55 Leo, linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Goddess of Partnership and Commitment in the sign of Living from the Truth of your Heart. Venus/Juno brings focus to relationships- romantic and marriage partnerships but also financial and business partnerships. Are your emotional, sexual, creative, financial and/or business relationships healthy and life affirming? Are they truly allowing you to Live from the Truth of your Heart? If not- what are you ready, willing and able to do about it? This is not about ego needs (I want attention!) but about core Heart needs- I need love, connection, rapport, alignment. This is also about the commitment to giving yourself the Love that you need- self-Love, self-worth, self-esteem and self-confidence are part of this conversation. What would your life look like if you were living it aligned with Love and not fear? What would your relationships look like? Today is a great day to get clear on this and any dreams coming in overnight should be paid attention to as messages from the Unconscious about these themes.

Retrograde Mercury in Virgo sesquiquadrates Retrograde Eris in Aries at 8:56am- creating tension and friction between the detail oriented Mind and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. Life is not always in a neat little package and sometimes conversations/information comes up to throw us off our game. The key here is staying open to seeing the Truth, seeing the shadow and dealing with what arises. If you are sitting on anger and rage and not giving it an outlet- it can come up and out!!! This is trigger happy territory – so navigate communication terrain with extra consciousness today.

At 5:06pm Retrograde Pluto in Capricorn squares Ceres in Libra- creating tension between the Lord of the Underworld and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. Pluto/Ceres can bring major shifts, changes, death and rebirth in home/family dynamics, safety and security issues, nurturing and nourishment, and on a broader scale with Mother Earth herself. When Ceres is in Libra she desires peace, balance and harmony- but the square to Pluto ensures that some aspect of life as we know it is having the hidden shadows or power dynamics exposed. We need to address where we hold onto things out of safety and security- particularly things that are toxic, stagnant or no longer working for us. Opportunities to see where we need to shift things in our relationships, home, family and inhabitance on planet Earth abound right now! The key is to not bury our heads in denial but actually FACE them and see what can be done to instigate change and evolutionary shift (personally and collectively). Issues around attachment, loss, childhood or family situations and more can arise right now. From last week Sunday 9/3 to this week Sunday we have had Pluto and Eris wake up and shake up Ceres- so look to see what has gotten revealed in the last week and see where sweeping things under the carpet is no longer working. Empowerment comes when we pull back the veil!


Have a blessed week…
