September 17 
11:19pm PDT   

Disseminating: Share information; find a teacher or someone who has more knowledge. Perhaps there was a big ol’ blow out on the full and one feels in need of support and help, this is the phase to reach out to one who knows more. This is when we find a rabbi or a minister or therapist who gives us more insight.  And of course, you too may be ready to teach and share your own information.  

Focus on:  How are you sharing your practical nature?  How are you sharing your solidness?  How are you sharing your values? 

Special focus:
9/18  1:46a Saturn turns direct 13 Capricorn 54  (separate post) 
9/19 Mars  trine Pluto.  Actions that bring evolution.  Clearing out mental and physical clutter. 

Last Quarter Moon Phase
September 21 

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:
How does your creative and power benefit by a ‘lighter’ touch?  How are you in need of light communication?   How do the siblings and or neighbors speak to your creativity? 

Special Focus:
9/21 Jupiter square Neptune * (separate post) 
9/22: Mercury trine Saturn.  Solid thoughts about practicality.  Good ideas that support concrete results. 
9/23  Sun enters Libra.  Happy Autumn in North and Happy Spring in South hemisphere

Full Moon: Pisces September 13

Harvest Moon on this Friday the least in PDT,MDT &CDT
Full Moon Phase
September 13, 2019
9:32pm  PDT 
21 Pisces 05

Welcome to our Friday the 13th Harvest Moon for 2019.  The last time we had one was October 2000 and by the time we got to the Harvest Moon of 2001 --the world was different.  Sigh. 

 This Pisces full moon is on top of Neptune and both of them are opposite Sun in Virgo which conjuncts Mars about an hour after full moon.   And all of them square Jupiter in Sag.  Lord. 

The full moon phase like all the phases is about three and half days long.    As hard as we want to stay disciplined between now and disseminating (9/17) we will probably get tugged under some waves, like a broken down piece of kelp.  The To-Do list melts in our hands. The diet falls apart.  We can’t get our act together.   And there is the Mercury Venus conjunction in Virgo who can get lost in minutia—not seeing the bigger picture so our ability to get our thoughts together and present our ideas could also be weakened.   Thus, it is a three-day cycle of ping ponging between  “Lost in the waves” versus “Lost in the weeds.”

Luckily, Sun is trine to Pluto.  So we will be feeling a need to dig deep and find a way out. 

What do we do? 
We learn a skill (Virgo) that cuts (Mars) through all that overwhelms (Jupiter) where we connect to truth (Sag) that is important but can’t always be explained (Pisces) but we know it is true because our psyche ‘gut’ tells us so (Neptune).   The key is we have to get deep (Pluto) to find the path.   

Perhaps it is fast meditation that takes you to truth (in about a nano second.)  Something comes up that overwhelms or scares you and you are not sure what to do ---So you close your eyes, get quiet and you get the answer.   The ability to find a moment of clarity in a sea of noise is critical for all of us and during this full moon phase we will be tested how to find the clarity.  

To be clear it is not that the answer you get has to be a Yes or No, for sure that could be an answer but your gut could tell you ‘Call So&So and discuss.”  Or some other pragmatic answer.   There are so many answers to so many questions out there in the ethers it just needs us to learn how to get quiet and find our answer.   Prayer helps as well.   And things that appear random for example, you may be bopping along your day and 'suddenly' remember something important or you put two and two together that you never considered before that moment, this too is how our gut talks to us.   

Sleep could be all over the place.   Day dreams will be super high.  This is a very creative time.  

Don’t beat yourself up if you are behind schedule in anything --you need this fuzzy period to find your inner clock.   

Remember, you are your own wise soul but it takes a little work to find you.   

Jupiter /Neptune - September 21

Jupiter Square Neptune 
16 Sag/Pisces 59 
September 21 
9:43am PDT 

It is hard to believe that in all the crazy, cuckoo energy of wound up Virgo plus Saturn acceleration we also get the final square between Jupiter and Neptune.  
We have been feeling these two planets in their little war over faith all year with the first aspect hit on January 13 and the second on June 16.   You may want to go back to your calendar and see how you were challenged.  Where did you have a crisis of faith?   Did you have some big dreams that didn’t get realized?  Was it something small that just hurt enough to cause your cynic to emerge?   Have you learned something now that by this final aspect you are changing your approach or belief?   Or are you going to go back to the well of  disappointment again and learn yet another lesson?   Hard to tell.    Jupiter rules Sagittarius (where it is right now) and before Neptune was discovered Jupiter also ruled Pisces.    So there is a kinship between the two planets even when they are squared.  But they have big differences.   Jupiter in Sag is too opinionated.   Neptune in Pisces is too vague.   Where one explains why something should happen the other lifts up its hands in either prayer or frustration and say, “its not up to me.”     Finding the spot in between both approaches is not easy but the path is finding quiet and reflecting on routes that solve any hardness in the heart.   Do not fall into cynicism.  Do not fall into fantasy.    Neither are accurate, and they are too worldly.  Instead look for an inner compass that can only be found when you get quiet and are open.  Let that gift come with this final round between Jupiter & Neptune.   There is so much truth inside you, use this aspect to tune into it.  

Saturn Direct September 18 --

Saturn turned retrograde on April 29 and during the last five months we have learned a lot about responsibility and work.  We have also learned through failures.     Sometimes we looked around and said, “Can I get some help, please?”  And the answer was a very loud, “No”.  We just had to do it ourselves.   The grind was real and hard and seemed just damn stupid at times but in the end we learned about our skills, discipline and stick-to-it-ness.  Saturn delays but it does not deny and now that it is turning direct we will see a lot of the fruits of our hard work.  Saturn spends only two (and change) years in one sign.    It has been 28 years since the last time it was in Capricorn in 1988-1991.   Now turning direct it straightens out and flies right where it will hit Pluto in January.  Be prepared to see the energy intensify, as Saturn turning direct activates a trip wire on our path to the January conjunction.    Then on March 21 it leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius.  It turns retrograde on May 10 and re-enters Capricorn on July 1 for its final months of the hard work and discipline lesson until it re-enters Aquarius in December 2020.  After that point it will not re-enters Capricorn until 2047.    So, ask yourself what did you learn about hard work since April?  What did you learn about skipping hard work that maybe you should have shown more discipline?  Can you take the energy of Saturn direct to help you now as you refine your world?  How can this Virgo cycle speak to Saturn and ask for help?   Get on the right side of Saturn while you have this gift of Saturn being in its home sign of Capricorn.  Unless you feel you have the time to wait until 2047 when it returns.   I know I don’t.

Things Will Start To Get Interesting......

The next ten days things should start to get interesting.   We start with Gibbous Moon with focus on friends, groups and colloboration.   How are you playing with others?  How are you reaching out to like minded?  

Some fuzzy factor comes up on the 10th and sparks will fly on the 12 with a Mars/Jupiter exchange.   Our thinking softens on the 13th just in time for a compassion sometimes crazy full moon (post will follow).   Actions start to slow down in doubt and guilt then next week Saturn turns direct (separate post) and Jupiter & Neptune have their final shoot out at the OK corral (separate post) ---the floor is starting to drop on our carnival ride.   

Gibbous Moon
September 9

Focus on:  Where do your friends and groups need refining?  How are your groups taking valuable time?  Do they work for you and your schedule?  How are friends NOT in your daily life enough?   Do you know how to make time for people whom you are in sync? 

Special focus
9/10:  Sun oppose Neptune, truth is not to be believed. How are lies being showcased?  How is getting lost into too many details killing faith?  
9/12: Mars square Jupiter.  Actions seem small.  Pettiness gets in the way of big goals.  Stopping the parade to pick up a nickel does what for everyone? 
9/13: Mercury conjunct Venus.  Valuable thinking.  Kindness wins

Mars the planet of fast cars is all over this New Moon chart.   We are all in a fast red Ferrari.  While driving fast in the mountains will we be able to see the forest for the trees?   We better.    I was a little tardy getting the article up (how unFarrari of me) but it should all make sense.  You will find it HERE.
