monday september 9th-
mercury in virgo sesquiquadrates retrograde uranus in taurus at 2:59am, creating tension and friction between the lower mind and Higher Mind. at best this can bring unexpected insights, bolt out of the blue awarenesses and revelations of Truth. the shadow side here is that mercury in virgo wants to prove things by the five senses- but uranus comes in to blast us out the mundane practical aspects of life and show us Truths that lie beyond. there can be a sudden and unexpected energy present today. since this aspects occurs in the early morning hours- pay attention to your dreams upon waking for important messages from the Unconscious.
at 7:15am mars in virgo sextiles the mean north node in cancer and trines the south node in capricorn, aligning the will and drive with the nodes of destiny and karma. this is the 3rd of 4 virgo planets linking with both of the nodes harmoniously- supporting us in dealing with the past so we can move into the future with less baggage. sometimes the past we do not face and deal with is the very thing that blocks us. other times the past is a solid foundation upon which we have built and has brought us to today. right now we are getting HUGE insights around what of the past is good and endurable and what of the past is toxic, patriarchal, stagnant and stuck and is no longer working. pay attention and do the work to close doors meant to be closed- but don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater!
mars in virgo opposes mean black moon lilith in pisces at 12:35pm, creating tension between the will and drive and the fierce Dark Feminine. this can be a combination of power vs force but it can also be creative and potent if wielded wisely. virgo likes to focus on the details and the practicalities while lilith in pisces is intuitive, mystical, imaginative and otherworldly.
venus in virgo quincunxes retrograde eris in aries at 12:59pm, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. venus/eris can bring some upheaval and revelations in relationships, finances, our values and self-worth or self-Love. seeing what is not whole or integrated helps us to see what shadow is playing out that needs to be addressed. being in touch with our anger, passion, rage and desire is key right now. don’t stuff it, don’t act out in it- but relate to it directly and see how it changes dynamics in your life!
tuesday september 10th-
at 12:24am the sun in virgo opposes retrograde neptune in pisces, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the planet that dissolves ego boundaries. where sun in virgo is all about discernment and precision- neptune is about diffusion and surrender. sun/neptune can be great for mystical experiences, creativity, compassion and idealism- but in tense aspect there can be a split between body and spirit, mind and emotions, reality and dreams. seeing where we are overdoing either at the expense of the other so we can rebalance right now is key. remember from 9/4-9/13 we have a lot of neptune oppositions so we are all being challenged to be discerning and clear seeing- rather than spiritual bypassing and escapist.
at 4:14pm mercury in virgo quincunxes retrograde eris in aries, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. communications can get intense and revealing today! steer clear of power struggles but do stand in your power. speak your Truth, hear the Truth- be able to see the Truth in actions when it is not being said in words. discernment is key.
wednesday september 11th-
retrograde uranus in taurus opposes the asteroid Goddess pallas athena in scorpio at 3:48pm, creating tension between the Rebel and Revolutionary and the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess. this is great for original ideas, radical insights and sudden revelations! just watch out for being addicted to being different or shocking to the point of not being able to deal with any kind of stability or security. uranus is revealing things while pallas in scorpio sees into the shadows. be willing to see your own shadows within as well as those without.
thursday september 12th-
at 2:06am mars in virgo squares jupiter in sagittarius, creating tension between the will and drive and the planet of expansion and excess. this is the last of the virgo planets squaring jupiter- bringing the last hurrah of energy that wants to break free and not be tied down. virgo wants to pay attention to the details, be healthy and do the work. jupiter in sadge wants to be free to roam, eat, drink and play! too much of a good thing can be too much- but also too little of a good thing can be harmful. balance is key.
friday september 13th-
happy friday the 13th!!! i love friday the 13th. western culture has a stigma about it being evil and unlucky, but if you look deep into the roots of both friday and the number 13 you will find some interesting mysteries hidden there. friday is vendredi in french- named after the goddess Venus. yes, friday is venus’ day! 13 is also deeply connected to the Goddess- it is one of her sacred numbers, there are 13 lunar cycles each year, and the transiting moon moves 13 degrees a day and the progressed moon moves 13 degrees each year. let’s not forget the maligned 13th sign ophiuchus which is associated with kundalini, healing and magic (all Dark Goddess areas of expertise- read my article on ophiuchus here for more info- https://divineharmony.com/writings/my-thoughts-on-ophiuchus-the-13th-sign/) and the debased 13th apostle- Mary Magdalene- and maybe you start to see the funny distorted picture…? we call a day that is most connected to the Goddess evil- just as we have demonized, repressed and controlled the empowered Divine Feminine for millenia. anyone else out there ready to change the tradition???
juno in virgo sesquiquadrates retrograde eris in aries at 5:32am, creating tension between the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. there’s a lot of tense eris aspects this week which can bring some sudden and unexpected revelations and things to Light. eris shines a Light on the shadow- very often the things people are super invested in not seeing or not owning. in relationships of all kinds (marriage, business partnership, financial and more) we are being asked to see what is going on behind the scenes. having healthy outlets for anger and rage is key- as stuffing it will lead to depression, repression and illness and reacting in it can lead to accidents, violence or bridges burned. balance is key.
at 8:10am mercury cojoins venus at 28’50 virgo, aligning the mind and the heart in harmonious ways. this is a great day for having heart-to-heart talks and sharing what we honestly think and feel- with ourselves and also with others. with both bodies in virgo the focus can be on work, service and health- and with both of them towards the end of virgo and about to move into libra (tomorrow!)- there can be conversations had right now that have a completion, culmination energy present. think about tying up loose ends so you can move into the next cycle with less baggage ;)
ceres in sagittarius sesquiquadrates retrograde eris in aries at 12:09pm, creating tension between the Great Mother asteroid Goddess and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. there can be some upheaval and unexpected things playing out in home/family situations, with parents or children, or around our own childhood past. there’s strong fire present- so channel it well so that it is creative rather than destructive, so that it illuminates the shadows rather than amplifies them.
the sun in virgo trines retrograde pluto in capricorn at 12:42pm, aligning the conscious self and ego with the Lord of the Underworld. this is a great aspect for diving deep and getting to the root and Truth of matters. both virgo and capricorn have discernment and integrity- and when we focus this clarified vision within we can see all manner of things right now! wielding power with humility and commitment to Truth is supported today! remember right now all the virgo planets are trining the entire capricorn confluence- helping us to see what is karmic, stagnant and stuck so we can clear it out, complete it and move on. commitment to inner and outer work will be rewarded. hard work now will ensure great rewards down the line!
the full moon at 21’05 pisces is exact at 9:33pm PDT- marking the midway point of the current lunar cycle we are in that began with the new moon in virgo conjunct all the personal planets! (refer to my lunar insight and lunar gate call posted for more in-depth info on this lunar cycle we are in). this full moon is in pisces, conjunct neptune and opposes all the personal planets but the moon (mars, sun and venus/mercury at 29 virgo). virgo is about discernment, the details, hard work, integrity and dealing with reality. pisces is about spirituality, imagination, ideals and surrender- but shadow pisces is also about escapism, avoidance of reality, spiritual bypassing, addiction, deception and generally not wanting to deal with what is. this full moon aspects ALL THE PLANETS except for saturn. the only harmonious aspect is a sextile to pluto. the potential for transformation is there but it requires that we see/face/own the shadow first. escapism and spiritual bypassing will not only not work- it will keep us stuck in toxic, karmic cycles. use the full moon to illuminate what is hidden in plain sight- within and without. for more info on this full moon check the lunar insight posted a few days before the lunation.
mars in virgo opposes retrograde neptune in pisces at 10:25pm, creating tension between the will and drive and the planet of idealism and illusion. this is the last of the virgo planets opposing neptune- which has been ongoing since 9/4. the virgo planets are earthy, practical, detail oriented and discerning. neptune is quite opposite as he is water, ethereal, intuitive, Big Picture (often off planet) focused and tends to wear rose colored glasses. this is a day to make sure we are being honest in our actions and words- and also a time to make sure others are as well. the neptune fog can make it easy to be deceived or deceptive. self and other honesty is key.
sun in virgo sesquiquadrates retrograde uranus in taurus at 11:53pm, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener. sun/uranus is great for embracing change and doing something radically different. the issue is we can also be accident prone, addicted to chaos OR resisting change to the point of clamping down and then creating the need for the Universe to upset the apple cart to get us to budge and move. pay attention to where you are being asked to shift and move into the direction of change.
saturday september 14th-
at 12:14am mercury moves out of virgo and into libra, shifting the mind and intellect from earth to air, from work focus to relationship focus. mercury in libra cares about relationship, collaboration and compromise. there is a desire to seek common ground and have peaceful communications in relationships with others. in the coming 10 days 3 of the personal planets move into libra and they all make intense aspects for the rest of the month! if we overdo the shadow of libra- keeping the peace at any cost and sweeping things under the carpet so as to avoid the messes in our lives- then that way of operating is not going to work in the 2nd half of the month. willingness to go beyond the surface is key! dive deep!
venus moves out of virgo and into libra at 6:43am, shifting the Goddess of Love and Beauty into the sign she rules. venus in libra values relationship, partnership, marriage, commitment and collaboration. her mantra is WE- and she tends to think of herself in relationship to others. the gift of venus in libra is peace, beauty and harmony- but with her heading into very intense aspects it can be important that we acknowledge where things are not peaceful, not beautiful and not in harmony (in dissonance instead). libra does not like to rock the boat- but in the coming weeks the boat is going to be rocked! can you find your center? can you be committed to the Truth rather than to surface projections of peace and harmony? the balance that is most important is the balance you have within. work on cultivating it in deeper ways the rest of the month and into next month. it is important to note that 9/30-10/2 a VERY POWERFUL ALIGNMENT of venus square stationary direct pluto while venus heliacal rises as an evening star will be occurring. this marks the rebirth phase of her Underworld journey that began in october 2018. she is on the rise! she is coming back to life after a very harrowing journey! more on this in the coming forecasts but being aware that this energy is present and building throughout this month can help support you in getting super clear on what you KNOW you need to let go of so you can grow and evolve. anything toxic, stagnant, stuck, karmic, patriarchal or held onto out of fear of safety, security or money is NOT serving you. let that shit go!
sunday september 15th-
at 12:33pm saturn cojoins the mean south node at 13’54 capricorn for the 3rd and final time! this alignment of the Lord of Karma and Father of Time with the karmic south node has been powerfully unfolding since may (1st one was 5/20 and 2nd was 6/23). we have been in DEEPLY KARMIC TERRITORY. the south node is the node of the past- it’s about what we did before that has brought us to now. yes there are gifts there but there is also shadow and it points to the places we can get stuck. ‘the past is present’ and before we can move into a better future we have to face the past, account for it, deal with it and do so with mastery. our relationship to authority, power and control needs to be confronted- as does our dogma, rigidity, fears and resistance to change. what has been up this year IS THE WORK. saturn demands we ‘be here now’ and deal with what IS. yes dreams can be manifested but not if we are using those dreams to escape reality and escape accountability or responsibility for where things are at in our lives. this is a very saturnine week/month particularly with saturn stationing direct on the south node in 3 days time. where capricorn is in your chart is where the shit is getting real (listen to horoscopes for more info). deal with reality- and on the other side you will find liberation! (true south node conjunction is 9/27)
have a blessed week!
