Going Deeper -- Astrology Forecast for Mon., Sept. 12th - Sun., Sept. 18th, 2016.

Please note that all times given below are Eastern Daylight Savings Time -- to change the listed times to your own timezone, I recommend clicking here for the time and date converter

I had another busy week -- I found it so helpful to stay flexible and connected to my heart. 

There were lots of healing opportunities, yet again -- I sometimes feel like a layer cake -- each time, the healing feels deeper than the time before, each time something gets lifted, and I get reconnected to my heart-center in a whole new way. Of course, we are in Eclipse season, so much is shifting and recalibrating. 

Before we get to this week's forecast, I have one quick announcement: 
Last chance to sign up for my MONTHLY FORECASTING FORUM, live this Thursday at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT/8pm BST(London-time). Please note that we have a Lunar Eclipse and Pluto Station coming up this week and Jupiter started its one-year journey through Libra! If you'd like to get in alignment with the stars for those events, join me live or sign up for the mp4-video recording.

Other than booking a reading with me, this is the highest level of support you can get -- and it's only $24 for the 90-minute webinar. To register now, click here.

This week's headline items: We have two planets stationing this week (Pluto on Monday, Mercury on Friday). The Lunar Eclipse in Pisces becomes exact on Friday.

There will also be four Moon VoC phases this week: Monday morning (for 11.5 hours), Wednesday late morning (for 11 hours), Friday afternoon (for almost 9.5 hours), and Sunday afternoon (for almost 9 hours).

Monday (September 12th): the Moon remains in practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn all day. It will journey there until 5:28pm EDT. We tend to be more realistic, serious, cautious; this can support practical endeavors and financial matters. 

Our ambition surges and brings with it a need for structure and planning; when you add in the pragmatism this aspect supports, you can see how this could be a very productive time for business and long-term goals. Our reputation becomes very important to us. 

As best as you can during this aspect, avoid "should-ing" on yourself. Take the pressure off, perhaps by saying "I am doing the best I can and that's all I can ever do" ;-)

Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn; it's transiting through Sagittarius right now, making this a great time to explore limiting beliefs and bust through conditioned thought structures. It's also a great time to take a more serious look at the "meaning of life". 

As best as you can, be authentic about your beliefs: Do they actually match your direct experience of life -- as it is for you now, rather than 5 or 10 years ago? What is true as of now? What is not? 

Monday at 6am EDT, we enter a 11.5-hour Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts until 5:28pm EDT. We may be aware of two seemingly conflicting desires during this time: On the one hand, we have a need for mature, diligent accomplishment -- and on the other, a desire for rapid progress toward goals, we may want to move a mile a minute, impatiently and enthusiastically hurling ourselves forward into the unknown. 

Use this intuitive time to make adjustments (and find creative solutions) when it comes to resolving these desires. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan your day ahead of time ;-)  

Monday afternoon, a challenging Mercury/Mars aspect becomes exact at 2:58pm EDT.We started to feel this aspect from Saturday on, it will be strong until Wednesday. This aspectbrings some juicy energy to our conversations. This is a chance to have some discussions that have been long overdue. 

This is the second time in the last 6 weeks that this aspect has become exact; this time around, Mercury is already moving retrograde, bringing an even more internal feel. 

This gives us a chance to reexamine our approach toward any misunderstandings -- is there anything that needs to be readdressed that came up for you around 6 weeks ago? Is your own inner dialog about your communications creating more clarity... or more stress? 

As best as you can, make it a productive discussion that serves you and others -- a win-win -- otherwise you might feel really awful afterwards. As best as you can, seek to empower yourself and the other person. Also, watch out on the road for some crazy drivers… rushing might not necessarily get you there any faster ;-) 

Do you have your Ascendent, Career Point (or any personal planets) in the following: 17-24 degrees of Virgo, Sagittarius, Gemini or Pisces? If so, you may feel more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Aries (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Mars rules Aries)

Monday at 5:28pm EDT, the Moon moves into freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius, where it will journey until Wednesday late evening. With this Moon placement, we often feel emotionally detached; when we do connect to our feelings, it's typically from a cerebral, intellectual place. We need a cause or project that resonates -- preferably one where we can connect with like-minded people.

For the next couple of days, we'll tend to be more eccentric or experimental; future-related issues like politics or education call to us now, as do unusual or even esoteric subjects like Astrology, UFOs... indeed anything from outer space. Our scientific approach to things leans on originality and ingenuity; we definitely love being unconventional. 

The increased value we place on personal and emotional independence could make us come off as indifferent or cold in one-on-one interactions. That said, we can still be friendly and kind, provided we aren't pushed into doing something conventional or unethical. 

Monday evening, a Sun/Mercury alignment in 20 degrees of Virgo becomes exact at 7:40pm EDT. We will started to feel this aspect from Tuesday on and it will be strong until Friday morning. This aspect indicates a confident mind and an analytical approach to life. Intelligence and communication abilities are strong at this time; however, we may not listen as well as the other speaks -- we might be too busy thinking about what to say next. 

As this alignment takes place in Cancer, we may be particularly sentimental, but it may not always serve us to refer back to the past -- especially the distant past.

We want an active role in communications -- it's very hard for us to passively listen and absorb information right now. What we say or write now has impact, so as best as you can, choose your words wisely. If people hung on your every word, what would you say then? What would you hold back from saying?

Our opinions are strong and our thinking independent -- and we're proud of both -- our egos may therefore get bruised if we don't feel "heard". As best as you can, express yourself fully, knowing that others may have different opinion and that's ok. 

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 12-18 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries or Libra? If so, you will be more affected by this alignment. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo, Gemini or Virgo (the Sun rules Leo; Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo)

Last but not least, also on Monday, Pluto starts to slow down (station), preparing to come to a halt on Sept. 26th after its 5-month retrograde phase. This makes its energy more exalted in the sky for the next 4 weeks...

When an outer planet stations, its energy gets more pronounced; we become more aware of its impact on us -- and this can sometimes cause discomfort. We are being asked to hang out with that discomfort until the planet's energy has picked up speed again (around Oct. 9th). 

Pluto is associated with our soul purpose. It relates to the process of empowerment -- our ability to feel empowered from within, through the experience of wholeness -- and to our deepest passions. 

It is also associated with transformation, for example our ability to transform darkness into light or "death" into "rebirth". Those terms don't necessarily refer to physical death or rebirth, but rather some sort of ending and beginning. 

To get to a place of truthfulness on the soul level, Pluto will remove what no longer serves us, replacing it with something new -- something fully aligned with our deepest passions and soul purpose. 

When we resist the deep changes Pluto brings, we tend to suffer; on the other hand, when we surrender and allow for that process to take place, we will move to a place of greater authenticity -- and feel a newness and empowerment from within. 

As best as you can, take a closer look at whatever is "in your face" for the next 4 weeks. Look for what might no longer be in alignment with your soul's purpose (your deep authentic Self). 

Ask yourself: Where am I holding on, out of fear? What habits, behaviors or fears are holding me back from feeling fully empowered from within? What would it look like, if I was fully aligned with my Soul-purpose? How would it feel? When we confront our fears we very often discover hidden gifts and strengths.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 13-17 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer or Libra? If so, you will feel this station more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Scorpio (Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio). 

Tuesday (Sept. 13th): the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius all day (see Monday early evening for details).

Tuesday afternoon, a challenging Sun/Mars aspect becomes exact at 4:39pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect from last Tuesday (Sept.6th) on; it will be strong until Tuesday of next week (Sept. 20th). This invites us to stretch ourselves and grow beyond what we know ourselves to be. 

We might feel driven by a restless desire to "do something", but must attend to the details, or our impulsive actions could involve us in needless arguments, or have us spinning our wheels (it would feel more like they were spinning in mid-air!) 

Our reactions might be defensive or competitive. We might not be willing to compromise or negotiate. However, energy output can run high if we choose to focus. As best as you can, take care of your body and pay attention to its needs. 

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 14-26 degrees of Virgo, Sagittarius, Gemini or Pisces? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect.This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Aries (the Sun rules Leo; Mars is the ruler of Aries)

Wednesday (Sept. 14th): the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius until 10:23pm EDT (see Monday early evening for details).

Wednesday at 11:31am EDT, we enter a 11-hour Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts until 10:23pm EDT. This is an intuitive time that presents an opportunity to connect to innovative ideas and unique world-views. If possible, share these with others, without apologies. Let your personal projects reflect your unique vision for life. 

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan the second half of Wednesday ahead of time ;-)

Wednesday at 10:23pm EDT, the Moon moves into creative, sensitive Pisces, where it will journey until Friday night/Saturday very early morning. This Moon placement often finds us more sensitive, intuitive, idealistic and imaginative than normal. We also have a greater capacity for compassion, sympathy and affection for all -- but especially for those who suffer or can be regarded as the underdog. 

But... that very idealism could also be our downfall at this time: We tend to see the best in everyone and everything, and when reality doesn't match our idyllic vision, we might feel upset and even victimized by those harsh realities. A way out of this is to channel our idealism into spiritual or creative endeavors. 

It's also a great time for releasing fears -- especially the ones based on a sense of separation -- and experiencing "oneness". Feelings tend to flow more freely; as best as you can, let them -- in fact, "going with the flow" is the best way to go for the next couple of days.nThis Moon placement also starts the build-up towards the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse -- it will be exact on Friday afternoon -- more on that later...

Thursday (Sept. 15th): the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces all day (see Wednesday late evening for details).

Thursday early morning, a Sun/Chiron opposition becomes exact at 4:27am EDT. We started feeling this aspect build from Monday on; and it will be strong until Saturday. This aspect asks of us to create a balance between two poles: on the one hand, our ability to see all the angles and details -- being aware of what works and what doesn't -- and on the other, being able to bring compassion and understanding to each situation. 

Our confidence might not be at its strongest at this time. Oppositions can be acted out within relationships: one person embodies one of the energies, while the other person "holds" the energy of the other pole. When this happens, we sometimes experience the opposition as something that the other person is triggering in us. 

In the case of this particular opposition, it may be someone poking at our wounds, or pointing out our shortcomings -- which brings up our insecurities or secret shame. This may cause us to spin into an emotional place that is not only connected to what is happening in the moment but also connected to our past -- to our childhood. 

If this happens, as best as you can, locate the original pain or wound -- and bring compassion, love, understanding and forgiveness to yourself (and towards your younger Self). Healing can only take place if we are willing to embrace our flaws and love our most vulnerable places. 

Blaming, shaming, attacking and justifying will not heal us faster -- it will cause more pain and suffering, within us and around us. How quickly would you like to heal? 

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 20-26 degrees of Virgo, Pisces, Gemini or SagittariusIf so, you will feel this opposition quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo (the Sun rules Leo).

Thursday evening, a somewhat challenging Sun/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 9:51pm EDT. We started feeling this aspect build from Wednesday morning on; and it will be strong until Friday evening.This aspect operates more on an internal level. We feel uneasy about something, almost awkward -- and we need to make a choice… so we need to develop inner awareness. 

An unexpected turn of events could leave us uneasy or unsettled. How flexible could you be, if you really tried? What needs to be shifted internally, so you can stay open and aligned with your unique, divine Self? 

Do you have your Ascendent, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 22-25 degrees of Virgo or Aries? If so, you may be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aquarius or Leo (the Sun rules Leo; Uranus rules Aquarius) 

Thursday late evening, a challenging Mars/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 11:54pm EDT. We started feeling this aspect build from Sunday on; it will be strong until next week Tuesday. 

This aspect challenges us to see our own attachments and aversions as a normal, perhaps even valid, part of being human. That way, should we choose to express desire or anger (or even contempt or disgust), such expressions will feel natural and organic, rather than something that provokes shame. 

We may experience situations that call forth our initiative and independence -- but may not feel confident that we can rise to the challenge, let alone follow through. As best as you can, when the challenge comes: Get into action, feel the excitement that comes with stepping out of the familiar. Ask yourself: What would my hero do? 

Those of us who have any of our personal planets (or our Ascendent) in 20-26 degrees of Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini or Virgo will feel most affected by this aspect. 

Thursday is also your very last chance to sign up for my MONTHLY FORECASTING FORUM -- live at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT/8pm BST(London-time). Please note that we have a Lunar Eclipse and Pluto Station this week and Jupiter started its one-year journey through Libra!

Friday (Sept. 16th): the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces all day (see Wednesday late evening for details).

Friday at 3:05pm EDT,On Friday at 3:05pm EDT, the Sun opposes the Moon in 24 degrees of Pisces. This powerful Full Moon is also a Lunar Eclipse, as such, its energy is unusually intense. There is a lot to cover today with this Eclipse, as it is also connected to two mutable T-squares -- and all this is going on while Pluto is stationing!

So... this is the first Lunar Eclipse in Pisces since the Moon Nodes moved into Pisces and Virgo last November (2015). Let's take a deeper look at what this means:
 
The Moon in creative, free-flowing Pisces (which is aligned with the South Node) is making an opposition to the Sun in detail-oriented, practical Virgo (which is aligned in turn with the North Node). The Virgo/Pisces polarity has to do with our ability to connect the head and the heart, logical and intuitive thinking. 

Lunar Eclipses direct our attention to the "emotional body" and thus to whatever has been suppressed or ignored. Get ready for some big shifts in your life, especially around your relationship with your intuitive self and rational mind. Where do you need more emotional or spiritual healing? What painful memories have you not been able to process yet?

The last Lunar Eclipse in 24 degrees of Pisces was on Sept. 16th, 1997. Think back to that time; what happened then? What is possible now?

Eclipses bring a strong focus to endings and beginnings -- they push us forward in our evolution and connect us more fully to our Soul’s Journey. As best as you can, trust that whatever is leaving or falling apart is making way for something better -- the more open we are to change, the easier it will be to go to the next level. 

Our physical and emotional bodies strongly feel the intensity of it all... remember: these events ultimately support a shift in consciousness, bringing us closer to our Soul's path. 

This Eclipse could be about healing a memory around relationships. It could also be about making a new emotional connection, moving into a new home, starting a family, something of that sort. We get the chance to heal a trauma (or abandonment) that was inflicted on us in childhood.

Of course, all of this will resonate more with you if you have personal planets (or angles) within 5 degrees of the Eclipse… More on that later (and feel free to watch my 30-minute class on: "How to Read Your Birth Chart” if you haven't seen it yet)

How do we integrate Pisces with Virgo? This may seem challenging, given Virgo's detailed, analytical understanding, versus Pisces call to open our heart and allow for paradoxical truths to co-exist. In fact, there is no separation, everything is interconnected -- we need both left- and right-brain.

The mind acts like a filtering mechanism that helps us to focus and function more efficiently — but in doing so, it can also greatly narrow our view and understanding of the world. Ask yourself: What is my mind seeking to change or improve? What does my heart want to open to? What might come through if my heart and mind worked together in unison?

Any spiritual practices (such as meditation, breathing exercises, mindful exercise, etc.) can open the doors of our perception. The same is true of spiritual/energetic healing modalities like Reiki, "access consciousness bars", shiatsu, acupuncture, etc. Creative flow through dance, singing, music, sound, etc., can also connect us to “the all”, as can positive emotions such as love, gratitude and compassion.

What tools can you use to expand your view of reality from duality to unity? Ask yourself: Does my inner dialog serve as a support or a distraction?

The Sun aligns with Mercury in Virgo (Mercury currently retrograde) and Jupiter in Libra (feel free to watch my video about Jupiter in Libra). This will have us taking a closer look at relationships -- or rather, our beliefs or ideologies regarding relationships, and the balance of feminine and masculine energies within them. We are more aware of where our daily lives need improvement and where our thought processes need investigation in general. Is your inner dialog bringing clarity? 

The Moon aligns with Chiron in Pisces. This is a call for emotional healing around family, the "mother archetype", home, and our past in general. We may feel more sensitive and insecure about our feelings; this gives us the opportunity to give ourselves some compassion, acceptance and nurturing in the face of our sensitivities and limitations. 

What have you learned (and perhaps even gained) from painful experiences? How can you bring love and understanding towards those inner wounded spots? What have you been avoiding or rejecting about yourself? About life? Could you bring just 5% more love to those areas? 

What might shift if you allowed yourself to be "fully-human" rather than "super-human"? What would Kindness do?

Mars in Sagittarius is the focus point of a T-square involving the Moon and Chiron in Pisces, and the Sun and Mercury in Virgo. How do we use our masculine energies? Are we exhausting ourselves? Can the masculine be in service to the feminine? What assumptions are holding us back? What role does our thinking play in all of this? Are we over-thinking things?

What might be possible if we kept an open mind and curiously investigated our options? What would be possible if we asked ourselves on a daily basis, before taking an action: "Is this nurturing to me?" 

Saturn in Sagittarius is the focus point of a T-square involving Neptune in Pisces, Mercury in Virgo and the Moon Nodes. This T-square has been around for quite a while now; you may want to watch my last couple of videos (about the Solar Eclipse in Virgo and the Full Moon in Aquarius), for more details.

How might you connect to inner divinity while fully in this world? What needs to shift in your thinking, so you can fully understand the relationship between human-self and Soul-self? Might there be a direct link between thoughts and feelings, actions and manifestations? Where is focus going? How does that direct emotion?

At the time of the Lunar Eclipse, Venus in Libra sextiles Mars in Sagittarius, while opposing Uranus in Aries. This brings a desire for artistic self-expression, romance and adventure. This will also make it easier to break away from old ways of being in our relationships and step instead into healthier expressions of our feminine and masculine energies. We need to ask ourselves: What might be a new way to express my individuality in my relationships, without pulling or pushing away? 

As mentioned above, at the time of the Eclipse, Pluto is stationing in Capricorn; its energies are therefore exalted. It's moving much more slowly than normal because it's preparing to come to a halt on Sept. 26th. Confronting our fears at this time could uncover hidden gifts and strengths. We need to ask ourselves: Where am I holding on out of fear? What emotional attachments keep me from manifesting the things I know I could?

Mercury makes a trine to Pluto. It's easier for us to see more clearly what fears, behaviors, or destructive patterns are holding us back. How can we align our practical thinking with what we want to manifest long-term? 

With Neptune on the South Node in Pisces, we are much more aware of the interconnectedness of body and mind, heart and soul. We are also more aware of our connection to all the energies around us, via an emotional connection to all living things. That heightens our sensitivities, making it crucial to surround ourselves with caring, loving energies. 

How can we redefine our divine nature? What is a healthy way to connect to our inner divinity?

This powerful Full Moon also highlights the importance of developing, expressing and trusting our feminine energies -- connecting to our feeling side for example, or following our intuition. We need to allow for the flow of things… Just like the tides, just like our breath, we need to allow for feelings/thoughts/sensations to move in, and move out again -- without fearful reactions or judgments.

This Full Moon invites us to tap into our hearts first, so that our mind can be of service to something vaster and more beautiful than we were taught is possible. What if the greatest gift we could give ourselves is liberating our heart-energies? What if we allowed ourselves to move with those energies like a breeze on a summer day? 

The ability to trust and move with our heart-intuition is the most powerful "weapon" we have in the 21st century. My video about the Lunar Eclipse is already posted, click here to watch.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 19-29 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini or Sagittarius? If so, you are more affected by this Lunar Eclipse. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Friday, also at 3:05pm EDT, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts for almost 9.5 hours, until 12:22am EDT (Friday night/Saturday very early morning). Use this intuitive time to find a balance between logic and intuition, between the head and the heart, order and chaos, clarity and imagination.

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Friday afternoon and evening ahead of time ;-)

Saturday (Sept. 17th) at 12:22am EDT, the Moon moves into pioneering, fast-paced Aries, where it will journey until Monday late afternoon. Life is an adventure, we're more open to new ideas, and have great enthusiasm for new projects. 

Patience is certainly not our strong suit at this time, but we can decide quickly, and act immediately. Our independence and dynamism are important to us right now, so we may find it hard to be disciplined or accept advice at this time; in general, our responses to others tend to be more assertive or even aggressive. If you find your foot tapping, try hitting the gym, or finding other ways to burn off the body's excess energy. 

Saturday early morning, a harmonious Mars/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 3:04am EDT. We started feeling this aspect from Sunday on; it will be strong until next week Wednesday. This aspect signals a time when our energy level is much higher than usual -- among other effects, we may find we can work for long hours without fatigue, or feel "driven", especially in new and unusual directions. 

It could be that we receive backing from unusual sources. In general, our efforts are successful and we scale new heights of originality. As best as you can, stay open to new and unexpected things. Highly recommended: Group activities, group causes and connecting to like-minded people from all over the world.

Do you have your Ascendant (or one or more personal planets) in 20-27 degrees of Sagittarius, Aries or Leo? If so, you will be most blessed by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries or Aquarius (Mars is the ruler Aries; Uranus rules Aquarius)

Saturday early afternoon, a somewhat challenging Venus/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 1:35ppm EDT. We started to feel this aspect from Friday night on; it will be strong until Sunday. This aspect operates more on an internal level. We may feel uneasy or insecure in our relationships -- and be faced with a choice -- we must develop an inner awareness if we are to see what needs adjusting. 

As you can imagine, this could make social interactions somewhat awkward; as best as you can, connect with kindness towards all (including yourself :-) 

We may also have a hard time making financial decisions that feel satisfactory. As best as you can, bring a good dose of compassion and understanding to yourself and embrace your own humanity as much as possible... and remember: like everything else, this is only temporary ;-) 

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 22-24 degrees of Libra or Pisces? If so, you will feel this aspect quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Pisces (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Neptune is the ruler of Pisces).

Sunday (Sept. 18th): the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries all day (see Saturday very early morning for details).

Sunday morning, a Venus/Uranus opposition becomes exact at 4:06am EDT. We started to feel this opposition on Thursday evening and it will be strong until next Tuesday. This opposition calls us to balance "togetherness" with "having our space". 

We may find that we disagree with others. We may be restless, even anxious, and therefore feel pressure to act (and react) impulsively towards others -- or towards our finances. Try your best not to put all your money on a horse, just because it has a funny name, or elope with a random hottie ;-)

We could also be caught off-guard somehow, so stay open-minded and flexible. 

Do not get a facelift or any kind of beauty treatment that has the potential to go horribly wrong. I'm not kidding.

If there were a way to fully express our individuality in our relationships, without needing to pull or push away... what might that way be? Could you shake things up a little, without being oppositional or offensive? 

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 20-27 degrees of Libra, Aries, Cancer or Capricorn? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Aquarius (Venus being the ruler of Taurus and Libra, while Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius)

Sunday at 4:11pm EDT, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts for almost 9 hours, until 12:58am EDT (Sunday night/Monday very early morning). Use this intuitive time to make connections to people that might support your projects and sentiments. 

If at all possible, refrain from actually starting anything brand-new though — in fact, plan Sunday late afternoon and evening ahead of time or stick to routine things. If nothing else… simply go with the flow. 

Also on Sunday, Pluto station intensifies until Oct. 3rd. It will come to a halt on Sept. 26th in almost 15 degrees of Capricorn.

As I mentioned on Monday already, when an outer planet stations, its energy gets more pronounced; we become more aware of its impact on us -- and this can sometimes cause discomfort. We are being asked to hang out with that discomfort until the planet's energy has picked up speed again (around Oct. 9th). 

As best as you can, take a closer look at whatever is "in your face" for the next 3 weeks. Look for what might no longer be in alignment with your soul's purpose (your deep authentic Self). 

Ask yourself: Where am I holding on, out of fear? What habits, behaviors or fears are holding me back from feeling fully empowered from within? What would it look like, if I was fully aligned with my Soul-purpose? How would it feel? When we confront our fears we very often discover hidden gifts and strengths.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 13-17 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer or Libra? If so, you will feel this station more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Scorpio (Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio). 

A head's up for next Monday (Sept. 19th): At 12:58am EDT, the Moon movesinto steady, peaceful Taurus, where it will be until Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning. In the morning, an opportune Venus/Mars aspectbecomes exact at 7:53am EDT. We started to feel this aspect from Wednesday on; it will be strong until next week Friday. More about all the details in next week’s forecast ;-)
