This Week in Astrology
Because there is so much tension between Mars and Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto we are taking note whenever the moon is in cardinal signs. We watch those two and a half days because the Moon will tussle with all four planets. Sparks, hurt feelings, short fuses, lashing out, hurdles, frustrations, nervous tension the need to ‘do’, it is a mixed bag when the moon is in Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. In the case of this week, we have:
9/11 Moon enters Cancer 1:22 am PDT
9/13 Moon exits 8:32am PDT
9/17 Moon enters Libra 11:55am PDT
9/19 Moon exits 11:32am
If you find yourself getting in squabbles when the Moon is in a cardinal, try to get to the root of the tension. What’s really going on? Do you need to draw a line with someone? Do you need to express who you REALLY are? Do you need space? Do you need find your identity? Do you need to look for a practical solution? Dig deeper.
We start the week in the last quarter phase of Leo lunar month with the emphasis on communication.
On Saturday, Sept 12 Jupiter turns direct at 27 degrees of Capricorn. Big problems need big solutions. The directional change by Jupiter is within a few days of Mars stationing retrograde. We can be forgiven if we all feel our heads spinning as that is a lot of planetary energy shift within a week.
On the 13th we move into Balsamic phase putting the emphasis on releasing emotions. Then the New Moon in Virgo launches on Sept 17. I will post later.
On the 15th Venus squares Uranus. Money and love could feel stretched or chaotic. The need to be bold conflicts with the need to be resourceful. Get quiet. Find your superhero. Look for unusual practical answers.
These are tense days. We all need to remember to breathe. Keeping our hand on the rudder of our boat can be difficult but we must try to do it.
Last Quarter Moon Phase
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.
What actions are you taking enhance your communication skills? What actions are you taking speak to your siblings and your neighbors? What actions are you taking that improve your research abilities?
9/11: Sun oppose Neptune. Matters of faith and spirituality, humanitarian love needs practical application. Cynical voice is challenged by the need for faith.
9/12: 5:40pm PDT Jupiter station direct 17 Capricorn 24 (see above)
Balsamic Moon Phase
September 13, 2020
Balsamic: We let go. By releasing we can prepare for the new.
Focus on How are you releasing your emotions? Read that twice.
9/14: Power speaks to you in ways that make sense and there is a practical application of that power. Evolution within brings great change.
9/15: Venus square Uranus. Chaos around money, love and values. Is it disruptive or is it needed change?
9/17: Mercury square Jupiter. In the last hour of this Leo lunar cycle our thinking is challenged by our ‘big ideas’. Are our beliefs in alignment with our ideas?
