Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: September 9, 2019 through September 15, 2019

Day in Autumn


After the summer’s yield, Lord, it is time
to let your shadow lengthen on the sundials
and in the pastures let the rough winds fly.

As for the final fruits, coax them to roundness.
Direct on them two days of warmer light
to hale them golden toward their term, and harry
the last few drops of sweetness through the wine.

Whoever’s homeless now, will build no shelter;
who lives alone will live indefinitely so,
waking up to read a little, draft long letters,   
and, along the city’s avenues,
fitfully wander, when the wild leaves loosen.

Please keep in mind that your personal transits can override these more universal ones. A personal consultation offers deep understanding.


Monday, September 9, 2019:

The week begins with a substantial boost to your ability to get things done. Mars forming a trine aspect to Saturn offers perseverance, ambition, and great efficiency. You can anticipate more patience and self-discipline than usual. Passion and loyalty are strong and supportive of your desires and commitments.

For the bulk of the day, the Moon is in Capricorn adding emphasis to issues of determination, focused attention, and serious effort. What you put your focus and attention on should work out very well today.

At 5:24 PM EDT the Moon enters Aquarius, ushering in an evening of emotional objectivity, innovation, and unusual ideas. Your interests widen this evening as your awareness turns to a broad humanitarian perspective.

The Capricorn Moon is void-of-course from 4:31 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 5:24 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have significant impact.


Tuesday, September 10, 2019:

Think about retreating to a quiet place to work creatively today, or make an effort to increase compassion toward others. Today is not a day to make decisions or agreements or to sign anything. Things are not as they appear to be under the influence of the Sun opposing Neptune. If you feel insecure, discouraged, or wiped out, spend time on your meditation cushion or simply allow yourself time to dream. If you can avoid dealing with the harsh realities of life today, do so.

With the Moon in Aquarius, reach out to understand the more unusual people in your life. The Aquarius Moon suggests the need to march to the beat of a different drummer. Allow yourself to express the parts of yourself that are unique and engage with all the weirdos you admire.


Wednesday, September 11, 2019:

Have you noticed that the Moon is rising shortly after the Sun sets and her appearance is growing larger each night? This is a sure indication that the Full Moon is approaching. Each month at the Full Moon (Friday night/Saturday morning,) emotions are heightened as we each reach for clarity in a specific area of life. Over the next few days, pay attention to the houses that hold Pisces and Virgo in your natal chart. Seek clarity in the house that holds Pisces, as this is a Pisces Full Moon.

The Moon is in innovative, unconventional Aquarius, encouraging you to seek a new direction. Find people who will support you in the change you want to see in your life or in the world. If you ordinarily spend time with people who look, behave, and live in a certain manner, today is a day to consciously break out of that mold.

To understand and develop compassion for others, you must get to know them. Sometimes this is challenging due to judgments and assumptions. Today you are more able to be objective about those differences. Seek out people of a different race, sexuality, gender identification, age group, nationality, or even political affiliation. Listen to understand another point of view. Remember that no matter how different, we are all human and have valid reasons for our proclivities.

Allow the rebellious and spontaneous parts of your personality to shine through. Break out of routines or ruts that hold you back. Embrace change.

The Aquarius Moon is void-of-course from 1:23 AM EDT until she enters Pisces on Thursday morning. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have significant impact.


Thursday, September 12, 2019:

Putting determination and drive into a project that you anticipate will bring big future rewards is the best way to use the square aspect between Mars and Jupiter today. Mars pushes you forward while Jupiter drives for expansion. This combination of energies is ideal for courage and accomplishment. However, do consider what it is you are pushing for before jumping headlong into an ill-advised plan. Put your shoulder to a project that has already shown signs of fruition.

With the Moon in Pisces (entering at 5:52 AM EDT), the project you choose to put your grit and boldness into should have a connection to imagination, music, or spiritual advancement. Pisces is a Mutable Water sign and brings with it the ability to adapt and touch deep emotions.

The Aquarius Moon is void-of-course until she enters Pisces at 5:52 AM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have significant impact.


Friday, September 13, 2019:

The Moon continues through passive, dreamy, and adaptable Pisces throughout the day and continues into Saturday evening.

At 11:10 AM EDT Mercury, representing thought processes and communications joins with Venus,  which represents that which is valued. Venus generally refers to love, money, beauty, and resources. When these two come together, it is time to think, speak, or write about the things that you value. This meeting is the beginning of a new cycle of expressing and understanding your values.

Tell someone you love them. Think about and write about love or finances. Write a love letter or work on your budget. Create a thing of great beauty that expresses a powerful idea. Consider what you value deeply.

At 3:42 PM EDT, the Sun trine Pluto brings intensity and powerful circumstances to the fore. Whatever you put your focused attention to should go very well, indeed. Look to the house that holds Capricorn in your chart for an idea of where the power is coming from. Look to the house that holds Virgo for an idea of where the power is released into your life or into the world.

All of this could easily point to a romantic evening. If this is applicable in your life, pull out all the stops, light the candles, and express powerful love and devotion. If you do not have a current love interest, do these same things for yourself. Show and express powerful self-love and self-care.

If you stay awake past midnight, you will encounter the Pisces Full Moon, exact at 12:33 AM EDT.


Saturday, September 14, 2019:

The highly intuitive Pisces Full Moon was exact shortly after midnight last night.

North American indigenous tribes call the September Full Moon the Harvest Moon. The Sun and Moon are opposite each other in the signs of Virgo and Pisces. Virgo holds the energy of discernment and practicality, allowing for the open imagination and mystical awareness of Pisces. Full Moons bring high energy and heighten emotions for all of us. Compassion and kindness will go a long way in supporting you throughout the weekend.

Mars opposed Neptune in the wee hours of the morning as well. This transit is a difficult one as Neptune weakens your physical energies and your ability to push forward for action or success. Use your energy for creative or spiritual endeavors or simply conserve your energy by slowing down and resting.

Another important consideration today is that both Mercury and Venus lead the way into Libra, leaving Virgo behind. The Sun will follow on September 23rd. As we move into Libra Season, there is more emphasis on friendliness and diplomacy. We are more inclined to charm those around us, and we are willing to compromise and negotiate for our needs and desires. We are also more interested in creating beauty not only in our environment but in our relationships as well.

Early this morning the Moon enters assertive, action-oriented Aries. The transiting Moon suggests the emotional atmosphere we are embroiled in. You are likely to be more aware of your personal needs and desires this evening. Nevertheless, still under the influence of Mars oppose Neptune, conserve your energy. If frustration kicks in, go for a run, lift weights, or do some jumping jacks! Tomorrow will be a simpler day.

The Pisces Moon is void-of-course from 12:33 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 6:33 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have significant impact.


Sunday, September 15, 2019:

Take a deep breath and go for a run this morning. The complex shifts and challenges from yesterday should settle down. Take stock of your circumstances as we head into the upcoming Libra Season. With Mercury and Venus already in Libra, you may well be thinking about whose hand you will be holding as the cool Fall days begin. Who will be by your side when Winter comes? This line of thinking will increase over the coming weeks.

The Moon is in assertive, action-oriented Aries today, bringing attention to your personal needs and desires. You are more inclined to take risks with acts of courage and daring and may be tempted to do things you usually shy away from. Consider what you are trying to prove to yourself. When the Moon is in Aries, it is time to take on a challenge, be competitive, and push forward toward passionate action. At bedtime, the Moon makes a hard square aspect to Saturn. The best course of action is to go to sleep early and avoid an argument.

* 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.
