monday september 5th-
at 12:05am venus moves out of leo and into virgo, shifting the Goddess of Love and beauty from fire to earth, yang to yin, in the spotlight to behind the scenes. venus in virgo is focused on service, health, healing and practicality. she loves to help others but can at times overdo that- so knowing when to help and when people are not ready to help themselves is key. both finances and relationships benefit from being grounded, realistic and sensible. just watch out for being overly perfectionistic, critical and judgmental of self and others under this transit. virgo is the sign of the Divine Feminine- and as venus ingresses into virgo she aligns with the fixed star regulus. major activation of the return of the Divine Feminine and the rebalancing of the scales of masculine/feminine (ultimately it’s about Union of both, not about one overpowering the other) is happening right now.

if you have not seen the blog i wrote about regulus moving into virgo in 2012 you can find that here- http://www.divineharmony.org/cosmic-insight-divine-harmony/divine-harmony-astrology-blog/regulus-into-virgo-the-meek-shall-inherit-the-earth/

also my masterclass on regulus is now available on demand here- https://divineharmony.mykajabi.com/offers/DsNfeMKK/checkout

venus makes A LOT of minor aspects after moving into virgo- sesquiquadrate retrograde chiron in aries at 9:48am, contraparallel mars and neptune (8:39pm and 10:14pm respectively) and semisquare mean black moon lilith at 8:43pm. her trigger of chiron and lilith activates their square from last week. the declination aspects trigger her approaching aspects with mars on 9/16 and neptune 9/24. it’s an unusually high amount of minor aspect activity with venus as she ingresses into a new sign- bringing a lot of activation of the Goddess of Love and Beauty in the sign of the Divine Feminine. as these aspects are tense pay attention to where challenges are arising in relationships, health or work so you can tend to them. the underlining energy of venus is self worth and self Love so there can be opportunities to see where coming into a place of more worthiness and love will help clarify situations (relational, health wise, financially and more).

mars also parallels neptune at 6:53pm energizing the mars/neptune square signature of mars’ retrograde journey we are in. the first square is not until 10/11 but this week’s full moon is conjunct neptune and square mars- also energizing the mars/neptune squares. paying attention to where things are nebulous, confusing, unclear or perhaps outright dishonest and untruthful is key. using the virgoan quality of discernment to get to the bottom of things and see the Truth- both within and without- is on offer, if we are willing to do the work!


tuesday september 6th-
pallas athena moves out of gemini and into cancer at 12:58am, shifting the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess from head to heart, intellect to emotion. pallas crosses the aries point by moving into 0 cancer which often correlates with world events or important things happening politically so pay attention! pallas in cancer is great at being emotional perceptive, intuition and seeing the underlying patterns in the psyche. this is great for therapy and dealing with family situations that need addressing. we can channel the warrior Goddess energy into defending home, family, and taking a stand for those who do not have a voice (children, elderly, animals, the earth and more).

at 9:09pm retrograde saturn in aquarius opposes ceres in leo, creating tension between the Lord of Karma and Great Patriarch and the Mother Goddess and Great Matriarch. this can bring up things in home/family dynamics – between parents and children, co-parents, family dynamics and more. with pallas now in cancer and the tense saturn/ceres aspect there can be some cold hard truths incoming or karmic realities needing to be addressed in family and home situations as well as in friendships or communities you are part of (saturn is in aquarius after all). getting real, seeing what is, seeing what is not and then addressing what needs to be done to move forward is key!


wednesday september 7th-
at 2:52am mars in gemini semisquares retrograde eris in aries, creating tension between the will and drive and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. mars link with this goddess reveals the shadow no one wants to look at. mars/eris can be fiery and dynamic but it can also get out of hand and be aggressive, reactive and violent. navigating conflicts with awareness is recommended all week! from now until sunday mars triggers the separating pluto/eris square- a signature of mars’ retrograde journey (he will do this 3 times). pay attention to where shadow is coming to Light and things are being destabilized to show you what is beneath the surface that needs to be addressed!

the mean north node in taurus sextiles mean black moon lilith in cancer (and the south node trines her) at 9:24pm, linking the nodes of destiny and karma with the Fierce Dark Feminine. pay attention to messages or intuitions coming in right now as they can be insights into the past and what needs completion as well as the future and what needs to moved towards. emotions, dreams, intuitive impressions are all worth their weight in gold- pay attention.

at 9:39pm the sun in virgo quincunxes retrograde chiron in aries, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Wounded Healer planetoid. sun/chiron can bring up old wounds and pain around our identity and sense of self. if we are hard on ourselves then this can be massively exacerbated! if we are overly egotistical and think we are perfect but no one else is- then this is a call to look at the wounds and pain that are running the tendency to project our shadow onto others. having healthy outlets for anger and rage is key right now- if we stuff it we can internalize it and have it come out in depression and illness. if we act out in it in aggressive ways we can burn bridges!


thursday september 8th-
at 3:30pm retrograde jupiter in aries sesquiquadrates ceres in leo, creating tension between the planet of expansion and excess and the Great Mother asteroids Goddess. both teacher planets (jupiter and saturn) make tense aspects to ceres this week- bringing in lessons and a need to address fundamental issues playing out in family, with children and more. jupiter/ceres can help bring Light to what needs addressing but the tense nature of the aspect can also exacerbate situations and amplify egos- so be aware and navigate with care.

at 6:18pm the sun in virgo trines the mean north node in taurus/sextiles the mean south node in scorpio, linking the conscious self and ego with the nodes of destiny and karma. pay attention to where you are being shown the path ahead and what it asks of you right now. the sun in virgo is willing to do the work and the north node is showing what evolution requires. with the harmonious aspect to the karmic south node we can also be shown what in the past needs resolution before we can truly move forward and embrace change.


friday september 9th-
at 6:06pm venus in virgo quincunxes retrograde jupiter in aries, creating tension between the two Benefic planets! venus is in fall in virgo and jupiter although not in a place of fall or detriment is in a sign that is square the exaltation (cancer) and fall (capricorn) positions. so we need to be aware of overdoing the shadow of either sign- either nit picking, critical, perfectionism and judgment (virgo) or impulsivity, reactivity, aggression and impatience. too much of a good thing can be too much! balance is key. on the positive side you can use the motivation of jupiter to deal with work or health matters (virgo areas of life) :)

mercury stations retrograde at 8’55 libra at 11:38pm, beginning his descent into the Underworld where are being asked to rethink, review, and revise relationships, contracts and compromises we make in our lives. mercury in libra is great for being a relationship therapist – as mercury wants to see both sides of things. the shadow here is that we can vacillate from one side to the next constantly and have a hard time making definitive statements or taking action in particular directions. right before and after mercury’s station he opposes jupiter- so we have an extra potent mercury/jupiter opposition unfolding from 9/2-9/18. mercury and jupiter are great for traveling, teaching, learning and mind expansion! but the tense nature of the opposition can also pit us against others with very different viewpoints and perspectives and it can exacerbate arguments. be aware of what is coming up right now as it’s part of mercury’s Underworld journey that will unfold in the coming 3 weeks. an in-depth blog about mercury retrograde can be read here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/mercury-retrograde-in-libra-virgo-finding-the-right-balance-between-service-to-others-service-to-self/


saturday september 10th-
at 1:41am mars in gemini sesquiquadrates retrograde pluto in capricorn, creating tension between the lower will and Higher Will in potent ways. mars in gemini is airy, cerebral and on the move! pluto in capricorn is a slow, brewing power that is beneath the surface. there can be some intensity today and ego conflicts- with power over/power under dynamics being exacerbated. use the power of mars/pluto to transform yourself and steer clear of engaging from a reactive ego if you can!

the full moon in pisces is exact at 5:59am EDT- marking the midway point of the current lunar cycle we are in that began with the new moon in virgo exactly square mars on 8/27. that new moon was all about discernment and judgement and seeing clearly- yet this full moon is conjunct neptune and it can be difficult to see the Truth. the neptune vibe can be dreamy, creative or romantic but it can also be escapist, delusional, in denial, spiritual bypassing and otherwise checked out. this full moon activates the approaching mars/neptune squares that are a signature of this mars retrograde. with mars in wide but important T square to the sun/moon/neptune opposition we need to be aware of what is going on behind the scenes- in ourselves, others and the world around us. mars square neptune can manifest as nebulous or dishonest people, actions or backdoor things we are not seeing- personally, interpersonally, collectively, in the media and more. for more on this full moon check the lunar insight posted a few days to a week before the full moon is exact.


sunday september 11th-
at 9:09am the sun in virgo trines retrograde uranus in taurus, linking the conscious self and ego with the planet of revolution and change. earth trines are excellent for the material world- finances, work, health and other matters that relate to form and materiality. this is a great day to see what needs to shift and change and do the slow, steady work to bring that change into full manifestation.


have a blessed week…
