Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: September 23, 2019, through September 29, 2019
Jennie Date, Laurie Cartwright and I continue diligently planing ASTROLORE’S THIRD ANNUAL RETREAT, which is coming VERY soon!
As we develop astrological understanding and community we will be working with and sharing the current prototype of the teaching tool/ game we have been working on for the past few years.
There is still time and space available. Join us! The Early Bird Prices continue in effect until September 30th.
Please keep in mind that your personal transits can override these more universal ones. A personal consultation offers deep understanding.
THE SUN ENTERS LIBRA – AUTUMNAL EQUINOX
Monday, September 23, 2019
In the wee hours of the morning (3:50 AM EDT) while you slept the Sun entered Libra bringing us to the Autumnal Equinox. This is the moment when day and night are of equal length, offering an obvious clue about why the sign of Libra is about creating balance and equanimity.
Libra Season (in the Northern Hemisphere) moves us in the direction of cold nights and (in New England) the beauty of fall foliage. As the cold season descends we seek to secure the relationships that will sustain us and keep us warm over the coming months.
The Sun will remain in Libra until October 23rd. During Libra season (Mercury and Venus are already in Libra) you need to sooth conflicts. You are able to see both sides of situations that have previously flummoxed you. This is the time of year to build bridges, repair challenges, bring beauty and harmony into every corner of your life.
The Moon is in Cancer today, your level of sensitivity is high as you are wearing your heart on your sleeve. With a challenging aspect from the Moon to Pluto, if someone pushes your buttons or tries to get the upper hand, simply shrug it off. The challenge will pass if you don’t engage it with anger or passive-aggressive tactics.
This evening head home for a warm nurturing meal with close family or loved ones.
OPEN EXPRESSION & COMMUNICATION
Tuesday, September 24, 2019
The dramatic playful Leo Moon asks that you allow your inner mischievous child to rule the day. If you must go to a job find a way to bring spontaneity, fun, and playfulness into the workplace. This is a day to enjoy others and engage in harmless flirtations. Remember that when the Moon is in Leo everyone wants to be seen for the unique person they are. Show encouragement and appreciation for the unique creativity you see in others.
At 5 PM EDT Mercury forms a lovely sextile aspect to Jupiter encouraging you to think about, talk about, and make decisions about your future.
Openly express yourself today. Your communication skills are heightened and your understanding of your topic will expand as you go. This is an ideal evening to socialize, study, negotiate, make travel plans, make deals, and even sign business contracts.
TAKE ACTION ON REALITY
Wednesday, September 25, 2019
With the Moon still in Leo today you are likely to wear your heart on your sleeve and let others know exactly how you feel. Issues of romance and passion are likely to engage your imagination. You may also react with more sensitivity than usual if you feel slighted or ignored. We all crave more attention and adoration while the Moon is in this dramatic expressive sign.
At 3:19 PM EDT Venus, the planet of love and beauty, on her path through beauty-seeking Libra forms a challenging aspect to Saturn. This may bring stress to your most intimate relationships or your financial concerns.
If you find that you feel lonely or depressed remember that a square aspect demands that you take action on the issue at hand. Non-action will result in an increase in feeling poorly about yourself. Don’t sweep relationship or financial concerns under the carpet today. Face them head-on.
Give yourself or your partner a bit of space to breath today. An afternoon alone may be in order. Review places in your budget where the money is leaking out.
Pay attention to the reality of your situation and make a realistic plan to move forward. Facing your situation directly will help you feel accomplished at the end of the day.
EXPLORE DEEP THINKING
Thursday, September 26, 2019
With the Moon in Virgo (6:37 AM EDT) your attention turns to practical matters. You have little patience for arrogance or unnecessary dramatization. This is a great day to pay attention to the details that are at the heart of most projects and enterprises. Organize your desk at work or go home and tidy the garage. Overhaul your dietary and health routines. Don’t make the mistake of thinking it is a good idea to try to overhaul anyone else’s life or routines.
It is great to be of service to another, but make sure your input is desired. Otherwise, your efforts will be seen as critical and disempowering.
At 7:51 PM EDT Mercury forms a difficult square aspect to Pluto. Don’t be surprised when your thinking and communications take a turn into deep intense waters. You may find conversations can be coercive or extreme this evening. Don’t try to force your beliefs on others, and if you are on the receiving end of this, simply excuse yourself from the situation.
The best use of this transit is to research, write, or speak about a topic you are passionate about. Dig deep to understand your own mind and thinking. Don’t argue for the sake of argument. Explore the depth of your own mind.
ANALYSE YOUR OWN MENTAL TERRAIN
Friday, September 27, 2019
We are currently in the darkest phase of the Moon as tomorrow brings us to the Libra New Moon. You will do well to spend time alone exploring your inner mental terrain. This is a good day to engage in detailed tasks that require attention and concentration. Catch up on ongoing chores. Clean out your email inbox, de-clutter closets, and junk drawers, and finalizing the seasons gardening chores.
When the Moon is in Virgo your mind is active and analytical. Mental puzzles, word games, and reading are satisfying. These activities will help settle the tendency to criticize or find fault.
I love Virgo’s ability to see their own potential, the potential in others, and the potential in projects, circumstances, and situations. However, it is important to understand that reaching the highest potential is not always necessary or even the best we can do. Remember that ‘good-enough’ is often exactly the place to rest. Remember to find that place of rest today.
The Virgo Moon is void-of-course for the final three minutes of the day until she enters Libra at 6:03 AM EDT Saturday morning. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.
LIBRA NEW MOON – PLANT AN OBJECTIVE SEED OF LOVE
Saturday, September 28, 2019
At 6:03 AM EDT, the Moon enters Libra closing the distance between herself and the Sun. At 2:27 PM EDT, they join together in Libra (New Moon) where their reunion is one of pleasure, charm, and beauty. When the Moon is in Libra the mood is social and engaged. You will enjoy bouncing ideas off others in intimate, pleasurable environments. Surround yourself with beauty, engage with a partner or friend in light togetherness.
This evening as Venus sextile Jupiter enjoy your time with others. Share friendship, generosity, beauty, and pleasure. This is the perfect evening to go to dinner, a show, or a museum with a partner or a small gathering of close friends. It is easy to express charm under this influence.
~Libra New Moon Ritual ~
First write down the change you wish to begin, create, or increase in this Moon Cycle. The Libra New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of pleasure, charm, beauty, or an objective, intellectual understanding of Love.
Depending on your life circumstances, you may prefer to plant a seed to grow a romatic partnership, bring beauty into your life, or develop a more harmonious heart. You get the idea. Plant a seed in this realm that resonates with your heart.
Have two candles available. Light the first to represent yourself as you are now.
Light the second candle as inspiration for the change you desire in this cycle.
Take a moment to focus as you light each candle.
Imagine drawing the change you desire toward you as you physically bring the two candles closer together.
Do this each day for two weeks. At the Full Moon, you will bring the candles fully together while acknowledging what you have created. Please remember that the energy you infuse this cycle with will continue over the next 6 months until the Libra Full Moon in early April 2020.
SINCERELY SAY ‘THANK YOU’
Sunday, September 29, 2019
The Moon continues through Libra enabling you to use charisma and charm to create the day you desire and wrap up the weekend with a generally pleasant vibe. If you encounter situations of disharmony you will be delighted to step in and play a diplomatic role.
The focus today is on relationships. You can learn a lot about yourself as you pay attention to how you relate to others.
Spend time with loved ones, show appreciation as you create beauty and harmony in your environment. This is a good evening for socializing as everyone will be on their best behavior.
Count how many times you can sincerely say ‘Thank you” today. At the end of the day, tell me how many times did you say ‘Thank you’, and how did it impact your day?
* 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.
