Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: September 16, 2019, through September 21, 2019
Jennie Date, Laurie Cartwright and I continue working on the development of the teaching tool/ game we have been working on for the past few years. As we come closer to completion, this week’s blog images are dedicated to the importance of games in our lives.
We will be working with and sharing the current prototype of the ‘game’ at Astrolore’s Third Annual Retreat next month. There is still time and space available to join us! Explore the retreat schedule here. I have extended the Early Bird Prices for the retreat until September 30th.
VITALITY AND COURAGE
Monday, September 16, 2019:
Your physical energy was likely depleted over the weekend, courtesy of Mars opposite Neptune. This morning should bring you back to full vigor and fortitude. The Aries Moon begins the day with a supportive trine aspect to Jupiter, increasing vitality and courage.
Get to work early today as the project you are working on should flow smoothly during the morning hours.
However, at 12:03 PM EDT, the aggressive Aries Moon challenges powerful Pluto. You may hit a mighty snag. If you are working on your own, this will serve to empower and strengthen your resolve. If you are working collaboratively, it may be best to work apart this afternoon to avoid butting heads.
You will each enjoy your work and get more done if you work on your own
The Aries Moon is void-of-course from 12:03 PM EDT until she enters Taurus on Tuesday at 6:31 AM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.
PLEASURE SEEKS EXCITEMENT
Tuesday, September 17, 2019:
When the Moon enters Taurus at 6:31 AM EDT, any power struggles you encountered yesterday release their hold. Whatever the issue, it no longer feels worth struggling over. Today you want to slow down, to find a place of beauty and comfort for yourself and those around you. Today is the day to bring snacks (go for comfort foods) to share with your coworkers or flowers to brighten the mood.
Do your best to live in the moment with full awareness of your five senses. You want cozy pleasures of the body. Good food, aromas, touch, music, and visual beauty call for your attention. Make it a priority to enjoy all your senses.
As the evening approaches, there is a shift toward anxiety or excitement. The Taurus Moon conjuncts Uranus at 6:31 PM EDT. Your best bet in dealing with this is to seek excitement for your senses. Go for wild beauty, edgy music, unusual cuisines, and intensity in physical connections. Enjoy the ride.

MATURITY MOVES YOU FORWARD
Wednesday, September 18, 2019:
What a delight it is to see Saturn turn direct today. Look to the house that holds Capricorn in your chart to understand what part of your life is affected. Have you been spinning your wheels in this area? Saturn’s shift to direct motion will help turn the tide. Saturn went retrograde in late April, suggesting that your work here has been private and internal. This time has been an inside job of learning maturity and integrity.
What you have learned about responsibility over the past 4+ months will support forward motion and success.
Respond to this post (on FB) with your rising sign, and I’ll tell you what area of your life is being affected.
Because Saturn and Pluto are traveling together, it is important that you build stability here.
Today’s Taurus Moon makes lovely aspects throughout the day. You will want to create and inhabit cozy environments, surround yourself with plush luxury, and enjoy delicious meals. You will do your best to create a day of stable routines, beauty, and comfort for yourself and your loved ones.
INITIATE A POWERFUL CHANGE
Thursday, September 19, 2019:
A sweet trine between the Taurus Moon and Virgo Sun starts the day with a sense that all is right in your world. Your morning commute and routines should flow more smoothly than usual. What begins the day as a practical flow turns to a powerful push of direct and ambitious energy by afternoon.
At 11:53 AM EDT directive Mars trines powerful Pluto. You feel that you can accomplish whatever you put your attention on.
Whatever blocks success will move aside rather easily if you approach it with steadfast determination. There is great passion available. Use your power wisely. Go ahead and initiate the transformation of a project or goal. Your ideas will be welcomed and understood.
The Moon enters Gemini at 4:59 PM EDT. Mercury is the ruling planet of Gemini, meaning that when the Moon is in Gemini, the Trickster is in the house. There is restlessness in the air, and you will notice that no one has a particularly long attention span. While the Moon is in Gemini, enjoy light friendly conversation, catch up on communications, and check off all the minor items on your to-do list.
The Taurus Moon is void-of-course from 9:57 AM EDT until she enters Gemini at 4:58 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.
THE MIND IS A CHANGEABLE THING
Friday, September 20, 2019:
As much as possible, allow yourself to simply enjoy today. The Moon moving through Gemini makes only positive aspects, suggesting that it is best to keep the mood light and airy. Gemini is a Mutable Air sign, meaning it is an adaptable, changeable sign of the intellect. Don’t get stuck on your own opinions or expect others to be fixated on theirs. The mind is a changeable thing. Engage it with curiosity and allow it to shift direction midstream.
Any difficulties that arise, you can defuse with humor and storytelling.
To avoid frustration, don’t even try to focus on serious projects. Work around the edges, let yourself move from task to task, answer emails, make calls, network.
Catch up with your most light-hearted friends over dinner or cocktails this evening for a great way to start the weekend.
GET CLARITY BEFORE GIVING TRUST
Saturday, September 21, 2019:
The most significant transit of 2019, a square between Jupiter and Neptune, forms it’s final exact ‘hit’ today. Jupiter is at 17° Sagittarius and Neptune is at 17° Pisces. The houses of Sagittarius and Pisces in your chart show the struggle or challenge you have been dealing with or need to face finally.
This issue is highlighted today, even as it continues to be unclear. It is risky to place your trust in something or someone without having all the information you need. Something is not as secure as you had hoped it was. Have you been too trusting? You may need to face disappointment or embarrassment as you come to recognize what has not been clear.
The over-riding lesson is about the importance of clarity before blindly trusting.
The Last Quarter Moon comes at 10:40 PM EDT. This period is a time of crisis and/ or opportunity, probably both. You need to release something or make a decision for your most authentic future. Your actions over the next 24 hours will turn you toward or away from your highest expression. Look for clarity and choose your path with as much open awareness as possible.
The Gemini Moon is void-of-course from 10:40 PM EDT until she enters Cancer Sunday morning shortly after midnight (12:50 AM EDT). This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.
BRING INTEGRITY AND KINDNESS TO CONTEMPLATION
Sunday, September 22, 2019:
With the Moon now in Cancer, your experience today will include a high level of sensitivity. You may notice your reactions are heightened to subtle clues from others. Cancer is the sign of the Nurturer and the Protector. Today is a day you will want to focus on self-care and the care of those folks in your life you love most. Family and domestic matters take center stage, making today a good day to stay close to home.
At 12:18 PM EDT Mercury forms a Last Quarter Square aspect to Saturn. Expect that your attention will shift to meaningful mental activity this afternoon and evening. If you have a project that requires deep thinking or planning, go off on your own and work on it. Spend time writing, thinking, or engaged in serious conversation. Make sure you fully employ integrity and kindness in any conversations.
The full cycle between Mercury and Saturn (a cycle of mind development and maturing) began in Capricorn in mid-January 2019. Look to the house in your chart that holds Capricorn. This area of your life is where mental maturity has been in development. Consider what you need to do now to start wrapping up what began then. The Last Quarter Square is a pivot point where you begin the end of the phase you have been involved in since January. Write – Speak – Think – with Kindness – with Integrity – always with Love.
* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.
The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
