Venus Crosses the Eclipse Point


On September 18 Venus crosses the eclipse point from August 21st.    It is hard to believe but it has been less than a month since the huge solar eclipse.  I know, I know it seems like a half a year ago instead of 26 days.   Venus the planet of love and values is now driving over the point of the eclipse at the 28 degree mark of Leo.    
As you remember the eclipse spoke to our strength, our courage, our authenticity and being brave especially in our heart.    Now we have Venus the planet of love visiting those same issues.   How do we value or love courage?  How do we love strength?  How do we value authenticity?  And what is the status of our self love?   Who is attracting our attention?  Where are we turning on our magnet so that we are attracting power & strength & love?   Venus' more abrasive partner Mars already drove by the eclipse point on September 3, Mercury actually turned direct on September 5 at the eclipse point--so our actions (Mars) and our brain and thinking (Mercury) stopped by 28 degree of Leo and got love and strength in their sights.   And now the belle of the ball is finally sashaying up to her own issues around love and strength.   What can we learn from Venus?   Watch the day and see if you are pulled or tugged towards issues of strength and courage.   And watch what your magnetism attracts    Remember Venus because she speaks to values includes issues around money, creativity and beauty- where does self love benefit those matters?  Again what are you attracting?    Pay attention so you can take the gifts of Venus.

This Week in Astrology

We start the week with Disseminating Moon.

On the 9th, Mercury returns to Virgo having not been at this point since the end of July and although Mercury is no longer retrograde the final shadow point ends on September 12th.  Now in Virgo again we cross our ts and dot our I’s.  We looks at areas that we have neglected especially matters of health and hygiene and diet.   And of course our critical thoughts may be up.  Okay, we all think we could do something better than we did it before.  Constructive criticism is important.  But sloppy negativity?  No one wants.   Work on fixing the things you can and be gentle about the rest.

End of the week we  have the annual Saturn square Sun  (9/13) which suggests a grind between getting a big picture versus going in tight with details.   It is important to not go for one and ditch the other.   We must have a goal and we must have a plan of small actions to make the goal.   Also on 9/13, we move into Third Quarter Moon where we do our final actions on any seeds we planted back on the new moon.  Remember the new moon was the eclipse on 8/21.  Doesn’t that feel like a million years ago? It was only three weeks.  What areas of your life need strength, love and joy?   Go ahead and address yourself and do some work to improve those areas.  Like a greedy child who wants summer to never end…lap up the final days this Leo lunar cycle.  Have fun, be big,  be strong –love!


Focus on:  How are you sharing your concreteness?   How are you sharing your resources?  How are you showing your practical nature?  How are you sharing the power of building something from the ground up?  How are you sharing the value of finances and properties? 


Special focus:
9/9: Sun Trine Pluto:  Death and rebirth are a joyous experience.  Transformation feels light and easy. 
9/9: Mercury enters Virgo
9/12: Venus trine Saturn.  Values are supported and given structure.

Last Quarter Moon Phase
September 13,
2:24pm  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 communications?  What actions are you taking support connections?  What actions are you taking that support  lightness?  What actions are you taking that support siblings or neighbors?   How are you resisting gossip?

Special focus:


9/13: Sun square Saturn.  Frustration, delays, hurdles Micro versus Macro –finding the place in the middle is difficult.

Pisces Full Moon -- September 6

Full Moon Phase
September 6, 2017
3:02am EDT
13 Pisces 53



Once a year we are gifted by Pisces full moon.  However, it does not always look like a gift.  Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac and the final water sign.  Pisces rules the ocean and the world that is deep below the surface.   In Pisces we are reminded that all is not as it appears.  As you stand on the beach and look off into the blue horizon you admire the peaks and valleys of the waves rolling to shore.  You notice sea birds diving and you consider how the shades of blue between the ocean and the sky meet at some point off way in the distance.  All very lovely.  However, what you don’t think about are the thousands of fishes and sea creatures (some of them surreal) all living together miles under the ocean.  They are in their own world, which can’t be seen by us.   This is Pisces.  Worlds behind worlds.  Have you considered how you connect to others in worlds that you can’t see?  What is that connection?  During Pisces full moon the world that can’t be seen and the connections we have to things greater than us become front and center. 

Intuition and guts will be up for us. Watch what comes up in the next three days that seems different and makes you feel like you are in a different place.    As if you have caught a current in the ocean at night and in the morning you find yourself some place ‘different’.  This is when we call upon our gut.   Have we spent all year ignoring our gut?  Or marginalizing our gut?   This is the gift of Pisces when our gut comes up from some unknown place and speaks to us.  Or more to the point it could have been talking to us all year but now we listen to it.

Curiously, Neptune who rules Pisces is on top of the Moon pulling ever so much harder towards understanding the things that can’t be understood.  For three days we may be tugged by emotions.   Stories of victims whether it is in the news or it is close to home may be up for us to consider.  Our own emotions can feel stronger and maybe overwhelming.  Kindness and sensitivity could take center stage while the Sun in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn strengthens our ability to serve a greater cause.  We find empowerment quickly when we need it.  If you find yourself depressed or sad let the emotion course through you for sure but don’t be victimized by your own emotion.  Instead treat it like waves or tides that may comes crashing or pulling but it will also recede.   This is the power of water.   If you have trouble feeling grounded than use the power of Sun in Virgo trine Pluto and take care of your to-do list.  Or make sure you are being of service somewhere.  Take care of your body.  The truth is that a boat will serve us all during the Pisces full moon and the rudder on the boat is taking care of your body and being of service.


And of course remember the saying--- “All things will come to pass”  This is truth.

Mercury Direct September 5

The shit show is over.
Possibly one of the hardest Mercury retrogrades I can remember is fini.
September 5
7:29am EDT
28 Leo 25

Are we done being wound up and insecure and neurotic?   Probably not but did we learn a lot about the power of finding our self esteem since this nonsense began on August 12?

Go back to the solar eclipse on August 21.  What came up?  Was it about love & power?   What is your brain telling you now about love, empowerment and bravery?   If you weren't ready back then to get your authenticity on are you up to to move the switch now?

How is drama working?     Look back to Aug 12 and assess what you have learned.

I'm pretty sure we all agree it has been one strange trip.

Astrology This Week







Hello Friends!

This week starts with Mars crossing the eclipse point on September 3.    Look to see if you are compelled by anger or your inner warrior engages on something that may have been a passing thought back on August 21st but now you are on fire about it.    If we don’t feel it personally we will probably see it in the news.   Warrior Mars in Leo is looking for real stand up heroes.  Not people who play heroes.    Mars in Leo is looking for authentic leaders an in fact will rally and cherish those who are just real.  People who are fakers will be in our sights and it is not pretty.   Curiously on the 3rd Mars & Mercury get on top of each other so the mind is moving fast and the tongue is a wee bit sharp while hitting that eclipse point.   September 3 will be kind of potent. 

On September 5, Mercury turns direct.   Dear lord I thought this period would never end.   Separate post to come.

Then on September 6 we have the Pisces Full Moon is yet another call back to the eclipse on August 21st.   Emphasis is on faith and spirit.   What is that thing that connects us all together and to something bigger than ourselves?    Things we can’t see or feel or touch or hear or taste---but yet they are there, we only ‘know’ it. Or trust it.   More to come and a separate post to follow. 

We moved into Gibbous Moon on September 2…

Gibbous:
We refine our information.  We pick and choose, we discriminate, and we organize to be ‘Virgo’ like.  We sort through details.  Have we missed something?  How are we sifting through the information?  Go back and make sure something hasn’t been neglected.  Refine our actions. 


Focus on:
What are you neglecting that speaks to your inner CEO? Where are you a professional and have you been missing something about that part of your nature?  What are you neglecting that which speaks to your industrial nature?  How are you neglecting the ability to Move UP the ladder?  Is there an inner beef?   How have you moved through insecurities?  Is there more work to do? 

Special Focus:

9/2: Mars trine Uranus:  Creative & dynamic energy that motivates big action.
9/3:  Mercury conjunct Mars.  The mind is quick might be moving a bit too fast.  Watch thy tongue.  
9/4:  Sun oppose Neptune.  Illusion is up, mysticism and faith are under it. 
9/5: Mars enters Virgo
9/5: Mercury stations direct (see above) 7:29am  28 Leo 25

Saturn Direct August 25

Temple of Saturn --Brittanica 

Saturn stations direct
August 25, 8:08am EDT
21 Sagittarius 10

Saturn is turning direct just a few days after the new moon.  Wow.  Spirit is really getting our attention that we can do something if we want to do it.  Saturn has been in Sag for about two years and it will be wrapping up its journey this year and will be moving into Capricorn at the end of December.    Saturn will not return to Sagittarius for about 27 years.   Will I still be on earth?  Gosh, who knows but if I am I will be as old as dirt.   The point is we should all make the most of Saturn in Sagittarius.   With Sag we are visionaries.  We see solutions and see bridges that take us from one place to another.  We find faith in churches and places that are holy.   We find faith in education.  We find faith in rules and orders and we find faith in our judgment.  Although, if we are not walking our talk we will be slapped by the universe for our hypocrisy.  And perhaps when Saturn turned retrograde on April 6 we have been dealing with hurdle after hurdle.   Is some of the hurdles popping up by our own hand?  Have we messed up and been full of our self (bad Sag) or have we had to just slow down and really think if the thing we are pursuing is really in sync with our beliefs.   Whatever has been coming up consider it a new day after Saturn turns direct on August 25th.  Our engines will rev up and hopefully we will make the most of Saturn’s final days in Sag.
