Final Week of Virgo Lunar month - Big Tidy Up

We are in the final days of the Virgo lunar month and now is the perfect time to take care of any loose ends since New Moon launched with a Virgo Solar Eclipse on September 1st.  Does it feel like a million years ago?  Good, you were paying attention.  Lots has been worked on processed and now we tidy it up.     Take care of business on these final days and move into release on the 26th.  Let go of ego.   And then on September 30 we launch Libra New Moon.  See post in a few days.  

Last Quarter Moon Phase
September 23, 2016
5:56am EDT


Last Quarter moon:  Now we do the final adjustments to the seeds we planted on new. The final call, the final letters to send, we follow all the trails that came up that still make sense.  And we let the other parts lay fallow. It is a time of action but wise action.  It is a time for living  “The serenity prayer

God, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change Courage to change the
things I can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference.



Focus on:
What actions are you taking that support your emotions?  How can these actions be applied in a daily fashion?  How can your action about your emotions be applied to your family?  What is the status of your home?  How is it working and supportive to your daily life?   And if not, why not?  
 

Special focus:
9/23: Venus enters Scorpio.  Depth in love.  Empowerment in values.  Money and resources deepen.  
9/25: Sun conj Jupiter.  Partnerships and balance  expand. 
9/26: Pluto Direct 11:01am what have we learned since …..


Balsamic Moon Phase
September 26
9:38pm EDT

Balsamic:   We let go.  By releasing we can prepare for the new. 

Focus on We release our ego.  We release our ‘big shotness’.  We release desire to be strong.    

Special focus:

9/27: Mars enters Capricorn





Libra New Moon September 30 8:11pm (8 Libra 15)

Pluto Direct September 26

Yes, it almost looks like Pluto has a heart, cold and icy but still a heart.

Pluto Direct
A couple days after Mercury turned direct we are getting Pluto straightening out on September 26 at 11:01am EDT.    Pluto spends half the year in retrograde percolating on many things and in this case he has been retrograde since April 18th. The degrees of this retrograde are between 14 and 17 degrees Capricorn.   So those of you with planets in Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn in that degree 3 or 4 degree window are feeling your life go through major transformations.  It could be painful, for sure.   You are being asked to shed and let go of a lot of garbage.  Given the station direct is coming up in this lunar cycle we need to go back to your schedule.   What are your habits and daily life and what needs to be shed?    For all of us, Pluto in Capricorn is asking about our leadership ability.  How are we a better CEO now than we were in April?  How are we stepping up in our own life and letting go and delegating?  How much more do we need to release.  Under all that releasing is empowerment.  Are you ready to jettison so you can feel more empowered?   Good, I was hoping you would say yes.

Mercury Direct 9/21 & 9/22

Mercury Direct

The Mercury dates are as follows:
Mercury enters shadow August 10
Mercury station retrograde August 30 at 29 Virgo
Mercury station direct September 21 at 15 Virgo
Mercury exits shadow October 6

So, we enter the Virgo Eclipse and 29 day cycle with Mercury retrograde.   On September 10th we have Saturn & Neptune and their tough square sucking up all the oxygen in the room,  we have Jupiter the day before making a change into Libra and then on September 16 we have the Pisces Lunar Eclipse full moon and then on September 21 Mercury goes direct.   I wonder if we will even notice?  I mean yes, we might feel some relief but when you are traveling through that rough terrain it is hard to figure out the rocks from the holes.  It is all yucky.   Anyway,  Mercury will go straight on the 21st.   Hurray!   Our brains will have been to a certain extent sleep walking since August 30th.   Not 100 percent but we will be so busy doing that you can’t even think for three weeks.   If you have ever had a family member die and all the stuff you have to do for the funeral and other arrangements you don’t really have a chance to think.  Or if you have been in a natural disaster you can’t really think about your situation outside of the basics, do I have water?  Do I have shelter?   Do I have food?   That’s sort of what is going on with this Mecury retrograde.  We will be dealing with so much that Mercury can only say, “Sorry about screwing up your computer but come on, all things being equal that is not that big a deal.” 

And he might have a point.


Astrology This Week






 Yesterday (Monday) we  moved out of Pisces Full Moon Lunar eclipse phase into Disseminating.   This is a gentler cycle and probably full of a lot of action as we focus on building up or rebuilding a new path.    For three days look at doors that open or emotions that seem more secure and build upon it.  Watch how teachers may pop up and walk in with a road map.    Or you may provide your own road map.  It is not a long road map.  Just a little bit but enough to help what ever is going on . 


Late in the evening on the 21st for pacific time and early in the morning for east coast time zone… Mercurywill turn direct.      Thank goodness that little period will be wrapping up for all of us.    Our next Mercury retrograde comes up in the middle of December. Where we tackle our inner CEOs.   That executive inside us that knows we can do better.   Whole new agenda for the Mercury retrogrades in 2017 when it is the cardinals.  Watch that space going forward.  In the meantime we will give our brains a rest as we have a new focus about our beliefs, our schedules and our ability to mean what we say.     Bask in it.
 On the 22 we move into Fall and the first day of Libra.   Reach out to a buddy or lover.   Wake up willing to Relate.   

On the 23 we move into Last Quarter Moon with the focus on our emotions, family and home.    See how sober you feel about all of it.

Next week Pluto turns direct.    Post will follow on that in the next few days.


 Disseminating
September 19
9:13pm EDT


Focus on:  How are you sharing your resources?  How are you sharing your values?  How are you sharing building blocks?  How are others sharing with you building blocks they use to structure something big?  How do they do it every day?  If you aren’t learning that, why not? 

Special focus:
9/22:  Mercury Turns Direct.  Hooray!  1:30am EDT 10:30pm 9:21 Pacific time. 
9/22: Sun enters Libra  10:21am
9/23: Mercury trine Pluto.   Evolution in thinking.  Empowered thinking.
