Healing our Social Realm








(S hemisphere below)

We begin this week from a New Moon in Libra, blessed by Jupiter, who is the closest and brightest he’s been in 70 years!

Rising at sunset & setting at sunrise, look for the brightest "star" in the sky and make a wish. We are on the downhill run of this Mercury retrograde, giving us one last potent infusion of the Virgo healing season so roll up your sleeves this week and get some real work done. Venus enters her Libran home this week giving us a larger access to social graces and the desire to socialize.

“If you suddenly and unexpectedly feel joy, don't hesitate. Give in to it. Perhaps this is its way of fighting back, that sometimes something happens better than all the riches or power in the world. It could be anything, but very likely you notice it in the instant when love begins. Anyway, whatever it is, don't be afraid of its plenty. Joy is not made to be a crumb.” ~ Mary Oliver

Monday September 26

Mercury Rx in Virgo joins Venus today at 26° for the last phase of this retrograde passage. This is a very refined approach to healing, using sublime and subtle communication, and their trine to Pluto carries it deep into our psyches.

Mercury and Venus both want to help us connect effectively to others and to the world around us, and the retrograde influence brings a review of what has come to pass in your life since August 22.

At the same time we are in a brand new lunar cycle that was born yesterday with the Sun & Moon in Libra opposite to Jupiter at 3° Aries, headed back into Pisces at the end of October. There is a fresh excitement found here, with boundless optimism. There can be some issues with self-control or moderation but the Virgo planets are a natural check to this facet of the transit.

When used together, this is a good day to make some art.

Tuesday September 27

The relationship Libra Moon makes a square to Pluto revealing some edges along the ways we are relating with others today. Let it be a guide to show you where work is needed rather than a fault line that creates ruptures. Mars trine Saturn engage the malefics in a productive conversation that applies to our social realms. Any group projects benefit from the disciplined engagement this transit grants.

Wednesday September 28

Today we are feeling the undercurrents as the Scorpio Moon opposite Uranus, on the collective Nodal axis guides us into the deeper emotional territory. You may see possessive power plays at work in yourself or others, or you may feel a desire to withdraw from the fray in order to get to the bottom of your intense feelings that are refusing to stay under wraps.

Thursday September 29

The deep feelings continue as the Scorpio Moon squares Saturn and trines Neptune. Responsibilities feel like a heavy weight but tackling your todo list head on will help alleviate some of this pressure. Venus moves into Libra today which is a boon as she loves to be home in her daytime domicile. Relating with others gets easier and more desirable for the next month.

Friday September 30

Mercury has slowed way down at his station degree, preparing to clear the retrograde, but these days in between are to be used wisely. Mercury is super amplified in clean-up mode, allowing us to apply that effective scoring pad wherever we need it most. Retrogrades are useful tools. The Sag Moon is playing with Jupiter and Venus in fire and air. This is super playful and flirtatious, so find a place to play, to blow off steam.

Saturday October 1

We kick off the Halloween season as the Sag Moon opposes Mars in Gemini and completes a grand square with Mercury and Neptune. We are entering the territory now of super mutability that will characterize the next start of the Mars retrograde at the end of this month. It’s time to prioritize grounding activities and techniques that will be useful through next March as we face the myriad of unsettled conditions in our world right now.

Sunday October 2

The waxing half Moon moves into Cap today making a t-square with Venus and Jupiter. It’s time to get serious about winter preparation in the north, and summer plans in the south. A Cap Moon activates our inner boss so use it to continue the grounding approach that life requires right now.






Southern Hemisphere based on AEST

Monday September 26 Sun opposite Jupiter, Mars trine Saturn is a combination of optimism and industriousness. The Libra season is social and expansive, helping us scratch that itch after the introverted Virgo season, while the Mars Saturn trine in social signs speaks to the subtext of correct and healthy alignment in where and how and with who we interact.
