Mercury Goes Direct and out of Retrograde on Wednesday the 20th! Woo-hoo!
It’s been a rough Mercury in Retrograde cycle for many of you, with it being in emotionally deep Scorpio during Scorpio Season as well, (when the Sun is in Scorpio.)
But let’s just focus on the fact that it’s over, even though we do have a two week after-shadow period to get through! Things now can slowly start to go back to normal.
Take a deep breath as it’s almost time to get moving again! Thank goodness, as this one was problematic and annoying for most of us.
Mercury has spent an unusually long time in the sign of deeper feeling Scorpio, and in Retrograde since Halloween. Even though it will stay in Scorpio for a few more weeks, things can slowly start to go back to normal when it comes to communications and misunderstandings. Our inner-detective has been strong, but with Mercury direct now, some of the things we were researching or obsessing over will finally make sense and slowly start to come together.
As this shift occurs be mindful that a flood of information can start to pour in that’s difficult to understand. Take notes and make out lists, it will be helpful once this energy shifts. This info coming in can start to stress us out and mentally we can get overwhelmed.
It’s not wise to make any important decisions for the time being, as our thinking is not clear. This issue for the next week or so is our problems can be magnified and difficult to fix. Our problems might be right in our face, so we should take a step back and take a breath so we can think about what our next move should be after we are out of the after shadow period in two weeks.
Expect some “a-ha” moments over the next few weeks. But it can be a rocky start with Mercury moving so slowly, even though it’s headed in the right direction again. During this adjustment period, there may actually be more disruptions and misunderstandings. However, slowly but surely Mercury will get back to normal and so will our lives, just eventually without all the technical glitches and snafus.
As the mental energies start to calm back down whatever has been wonky or not working will soon get better, or may just be something you need to let go of.
Mars enters the sign of Scorpio today and will transit this sign until January 3rd. In Scorpio, Mars is driven and focused on getting what it wants. With Mars shifting into the sign of Scorpio it can be easier to assert yourself in the actions you take. So you can feel more driven and focused to get things done. This is a time when we are more strong-willed, passionate, and resilient.
But we also can go deep into our feelings, and at times we need space to think and process the depths of our emotions, so we can experience some sort of lesson and learn more about our own personal power. This can be a strong time to transform something in your life around your physical well-being, and/or sex life.
Once you are on a mission it can be very difficult for anyone to stop you during this time. Our focus and drive are strong, as we go after what we want! You can feel obsessed with getting to the bottom of a problem, especially if you are frustrated or angry about it. And you might be more interested in revenge, and we all know what a bad idea that can be! Yes, really!
This is a time when we can be fascinated and can get caught up with what others tend to repress, so things that have been hidden, kept secret, denied, or ignored can come out to experience and understand better. The truth will come out once again and be exposed, especially in the actions you take or if you are provoked or angry. Temper, Temper, be mindful about how you communicate with others, you could come off a bit too honest and really hurt someone’s feelings.
If you need to be more assertive, the energy will help you to be more direct, without worrying about apologies. It’s a good time for getting organized, as this energy can give you the drive to declutter your office or storage areas around the house. Mars in Scorpio is a time when we dig deeper and enjoy getting rid of anything old or outdated. We are just simply clearing the energies out to bring in something new, which can be healing. So throw out those old photo albums of your ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend, or get rid of anything that’s holding onto the energy from your past negative experiences. Throw it out, it’s time to let go and move forward!
We don’t want to avoid important issues now. Because we are kind of attracted to chaos and crisis which go hand in hand with Mars in Scorpio. We see the problem areas in our life as transformative and it can be exciting emotionally. There’s a point that you may feel better about feeling extreme emotions than nothing at all, as our normal everyday life and routines just are unsatisfying during this time.

November 2019 – Astro Highlights
November 1st – Venus Enters Sagittarius
Since lovely and lusty Venus is now finished with its trip through the murky waters of Scorpio, it moves back into the light in fiery Sagittarius. So basically we can feel more hopeful and optimistic in things like love, relationships, and with situations involving our money! If you have been hiding your heart or your feelings from those you love, it’s time to come back out to the land of the living and find what makes you happy and brings you joy! It’s time to use this new hopeful energy to overcome your fears and remember that anything is possible.
November 5th, 2019 – Mars Square Pluto
Mars makes a tense square to intense Pluto, which can bring power struggles and a stronger desire to win someone or something over. With Mars involved you may want to assert yourself and get what you want and do it right away! But no matter how much you may want something, there may be circumstances or people that will make it more difficult if not impossible. When Mars Squares Pluto we are challenged or tested to see what we are capable of, and why not, this helps us learn how to be good at losing. Sometimes we fear losing, but this influence tends to push us out of our comfort zone, so we can reach our full potential. If you never learn how to lose in your life you will never be able to win.
November 11th, 2019 – Mercury Conjunct Sun
When Mercury meets up with the Sun it begins a new Mercury cycle, this is a great time to finish up any projects that take mental concentration. Do you have perhaps a book or website you need to finish? Maybe you want to learn a new skill or sell something online? Mercury will be hanging out with the Sun who will help you with what your next move should be to obtain your goals. This won’t happen again for years, so if an opportunity comes up definitely see what it’s all about.
November 12th, 2019 – Full Moon In Taurus
The Full Moons in Taurus are some of the best feeling most lucky Full Moons of the year. This particular Full Moon is also making some interesting meeting with Neptune in Pisces, and some sweet Trines to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, and is opposing Mercury in Scorpio. Yes, that is a lot of energy to go around. Because there is so much Earth energy involved, the Full Moon in Taurus will help us deal with obvious problems that we have been choosing to ignore or refuse to deal with. This is a time of common sense and sound judgment, so with the Full Moon in Taurus you will see what you get and you probably will get what you see. It’s important to watch for being overly stubborn, although some self-interest is healthy and necessary, as Taurus energy helps us to put some much-needed attention on ourselves once again.
November 14th, 2019 – Venus Square Neptune
When Venus makes a square to Neptune our feelings of insecurity can lead to high expectations that just are not going to happen, perhaps in the way we had hoped for. Because this Square is in the most hopeful but foggier signs of the Zodiac, you should be extra careful about wishful thinking. How we see ourselves can become an issue in our relationships, as we have a tendency to over-idealize romance and relationships, and plain out ignore warning signs that most others can see so well. This is a time to pay attention and reassess your hopes and dreams, but it’s just as important not to set the bar so high, and it’s equally as important to understand what’s realistically possible and what’s not! We deserve the Sun and Moon, but sometimes we push things and don’t allow ourselves enough time to get there. Don’t let this energy discourage you, be patient. We are more tender and affectionate at this time which can lead to new relationships, but stay woke folks, as the Neptunian influence can cause confusion. It’s just wise to wait until after this transit is over before making any commitments, so don’t be so trusting and fall victim to the wrong person.
“Warning for anyone who is susceptible to the influence of alcohol or drugs, this is a time when addiction can go too far and often there are overdoses. Be mindful and if you suffer from depression make sure and talk to someone if you are feeling bad, there is always someone who will listen.”
November 19th, 2019 – Mars Enters Scorpio
With Mars in Scorpio, it can be easier to assert yourself in the actions you take, so you can feel more driven and focused to get things done. Mars is at home in Scorpio, being the co-ruler of this sign, so it likes it here and will assist you on getting things done. We are more strong-willed, passionate, single-minded, and resilient under this energy. Once you are on a mission it can be very difficult for anyone to stop you during this time. There is a stronger desire to experience our emotional depths, so we can feel the urge to penetrate the surface of life in order to explore deeper levels of powerful existence. This is also a time where we can get caught up in what others tend to repress, so all that has been hidden, kept secret, or ignored can come out to experience and understand better.
November 20th, 2019 – Mercury Goes Direct
Hooray, Mercury stations direct and moves out of its Retrograde phase! Mercury has spent an unusually long time in Scorpio and has been in Retrograde since Halloween, and even though it will stay in Scorpio for a few more weeks, things can slowly start to go back to normal when it comes to communications, especially. Our inner detective has been strong, but with Mercury direct now, some of the things you were researching or obsessing over will finally make sense or slowly start to come together. As things start to make sense, be mindful that a flood of information can start to pour back in to make sense of and this can be mentally overwhelming and stressful. Expect some “a-ha” moments over the next few weeks, but also things may be rocky at first. Mercury doesn’t just start and stop on a dim, it moves as we do and now that is headed in the right direction once again, it also has to pick up the pace and get back to its normal speed. This “Shadow period” as it is commonly called means there may be more disruptions and misunderstandings. Slowly but surely Mercury will get back to normal and so will our lives again, as technical glitches and snafus will start to calm back down, and the things that weren’t making sense will again very soon.
November 22, 2019 – Sun Enters Sagittarius
The Sun enters into the sign of Sagittarius today, so Happy Birthday to all of you Sagittarians! Thanks to the Sagittarius season, we all become a bit wiser, hopeful and adventurous this time of the year.
This transit lasts through December 21st. With the Sun in Sagittarius, our focus shifts from the need to make intimate connections with others to a stronger need to get out and have an adventure. While the Sun moves through this fiery mutable sign, there is an urge to learn, grown, and expand our horizons, so we want to understand the world around us. This is a time when we seek out truth but also the higher meaning of any situation we focus on. Our faith and hope are restored and we can feel optimistic about life once again.
Since we are feeling more brave and courageous, we want to head down new and different paths, as our minds are wide open. Our confidence levels can soar now, so we can be overly optimistic as we focus more on the “bigger picture” and our dreams, instead of just the little details of our mundane everyday life. However, we tend to overdo things and can get carried away! This is the perfect time to work on our faith, hope, and future visions. This is your time to dream big. Don’t worry about the “how”, just make sure your goals are big enough and motivating, as you want to find your true meaning and purpose.
November 24th, 2019 – Venus Conjunct Jupiter
This amazing energy is what all the Astrologers have been talking about, so if you are an Astrology enthusiast of some kind, you might be quite excited to learn about this energy! However, on the same day Mars starts is opposition with rebellious Uranus, and the Moon also briefly joins Mars in the middle of this heated up energy. This can produce a lot of intensity and a strong desire for change. You may not want change because you want to move away from something, or because your current situation is unstable, but many of you are also feeling anxious and excited all at the same time about new opportunities coming in.
This certainly can be one heck of a freaking interesting day for many different reasons. It seems like those who have strong Sagittarius energy in their chart will experience some sort of expansion, uplifting, or happy go lucky kind of energy with these influences. While the fixed signs (Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius) may feel like they are caught up in a whirlwind of craziness. But no matter what you sign maybe we all will feel this energy in one way or another. Be careful of accidents and make sure to pay attention to your surroundings.
November 26th, 2019 – Venus Enters Capricorn
Venus the planet of love, money, and lust changes signs into realistic, accomplished Capricorn. Venus moves fast around the Zodiac wheel in exact order, so we must take advantage of the energies she puts off while in the sign of Capricorn for about the next month. You can feel more reserved when it comes to displaying your emotional side which can help if you are feeling overwhelmed when dealing with a partner or significant others. Be careful as you can bury all those emotions way too deep, and they can come out in a more impulsive, negative or even angry way!
With this placement, our relationships tend to be more on the practical side. That’s because we tend to see people for who they are, and are not afraid to lay the cards out on the table, as we simply take things more seriously. Since we appreciate maturity in our relationships, we take our time when it comes to love and tend to slowly warm up to others, then we can make long-term commitments. There will be more focus on business relationships as well during this time. Hopefully, any emotional issues that come up can be addressed before this cycle begins, so start to get prepared for it now.
November 26th, 2019 – New Moon In Sagittarius
This New Moon is a fabulous one, full of great feeling vibes with another interesting conjunction between lovely Venus and lucky Jupiter, so in fact, this New Moon can reactivate this amazing energy, and then for the cherry on top of this Cosmic Sundae is sweet Mercury and mystical Neptune in water signs hooking up! This is just one of those New Moons that are rare, the best one of year in fact! So it’s a great time for Setting Intentions, (telling the Universe what you want to see happen next in your life) and for visualization work. Get up today and start making a Vision Board, (when you take pictures and literally post them up on a board or a corkboard to see every day, helping create the energy of what you want to see happen in your life.)
Now for the more shadow side to this New Moon, is that aggressive Mars is opposing rebellious Uranus at the same time. This can bring chaotic energy! There also can be more irritation, hostility, or unexpected changes. Anger can boil over and turn into rash actions and silly temper tantrums. We can feel more impulsive and have a total disregard for following the rules, it can feel more important to break the rules to be free from our responsibilities and obligations.
November 27: Neptune goes Direct
Hopefully you’ve used the last few months to revisit your hopes, dreams, and goals and are now ready to turn your dreams into reality. However, since Neptune rules fantasies and spiritual quests make sure to take your time before making important decisions. You’ll need to pay attention and use your common sense to be successful now. Please read my Daily Astro Readings Blogs to learn more.

Mercury goes Retrograde on Halloween October 31st, 2019 and runs through November 17, 2019.
Mercury is currently inthe sign of Scorpio, this is a deep, potent, psychological energy. Therefore we go into a more private introverted place that has us exploring the deeper parts of our minds and psyche, as we learn truths that come from the depths of our souls. What is considered to be taboo or secret comes out in the open. The truth comes out to be told! The sign of Scorpio, after all, is the sign of regeneration, as it teaches all of us that sometimes we must fall to pieces and let something end or die off to start over again. If we take this cycle to plan and strategize we can make things happen once it’s over! As we go back to revisit and revise our plans we can go much deeper than usual while in this cycle and uncover ways to improve our lives and ourselves.
Sometimes the Universe gives us a break even though it doesn’t always feel that way. One thing the Cosmos always does is create balance. So the energies get slowed down a bit so we can have the opportunity to catch up. Mercury in Retrograde (Rx for short) is that time out, it’s an opportunity to get caught up with life, and a time to unplug and take a long deep breath. It’s also a great time to take some time off from our responsibilities if at all possible, maybe taking a little vacay and focus on reworking anything that needs to be done, or finishing projects that were never done to completion, while Mercury rules over our minds and thoughts. When this fast-moving planet goes into Retrograde we start to perceive things in a very different and unique way.
Mercury in Rx like all Retrograde planets is happening for a reason, this isn’t some new Astrological fad! Planets have always gone into Retrograde cycles and will continue to. So every once in a while we get a chance to pause or stop and get some rest. This is the time to review your life and the paths you’re on. What this Mercury in Rx cycle does is help us to take a breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to understand as this cycle takes hold that it’s a time to review your life and redo anything that needs to be done. It is time to research, re-think, re-visit, re-connect, and to get re-organized.
Mercury rules over our minds and how we process information, so this is a time to observe our lives from an outside perspective, which is truly a gift. From this space, we have the rare opportunity to see the contrast in our lives and what is working and what isn’t. The only problem is we live in a time of INFORMATION and after all, Mercury is the planet that delivers info, but during its Retrograde cycles, it wants us to simply UNPLUG and take a step back from our normal everyday routines and lives, and to not be online or on our phones, CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT! But if we were to stop using all of our electronic devices and take work off, and simply review our lives it would be a much better experience. The reality is only a few of you reading this are actually able to do this. So the challenge is in learning how to handle Mercury in Retrograde and still do our lives. Those of you who already pay attention to Mercury in Rx’s cycles understand just how annoying all the misunderstandings, electronic glitches, and snafus can be! So the bottom line is we should learn how to put our phones down from time to time and just simply do life, as this is a time of deep inner reflection.
What Not To Do during
Mercury in Retrograde:
Don’t start brand new projects
Do not get into arguments, avoid critical folks and tense people or situations.
Do Not Sign Contracts or New Agreements
Do Not take misunderstandings personal. Our Minds and Communication is foggy and cloudy.
What To do during
Mercury in Retrograde:
Redo, Rework, Review, Research, so basically go over things again and wrap up old business and projects.
Double Check the Facts and any info gathered.
Revisit what you need to, like your work.
Reconnect with the folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.
Backup Computers and any data you want to keep saved, usually start this process two weeks before the actual Retro Cycle.
Reorganize your daily life routines.
Reflect and practice spiritual work.
Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what is no longer working, especially in your intimate relationships.
There can be positive things that come from a Mercury in Retrograde cycle that perhaps didn’t cross your mind. Like throwing out old stuff you no longer need or use, and organizing your life. Stay focused on any past opportunities and reconsider them now, see if they’re still an option. Try not to allow any computer glitches or electronic snafus you might be experiencing to upset you too much.
Since it’s the Holiday Season, it’s important to keep a paper trail of whatever you purchase. Mercury is known as the “trickster” of the Zodiac, so it likes to play tricks that make us change our minds suddenly and this causes confusion.
So our focus should be on re-organizing and reflecting. We see the world a little differently during this time, and through these filters, we can have some very important inner revelations. It may not be as easy to communicate under this influence, so remember trying to rationalize everything at this time will just probably cause you more confusion. Logic is out and intuition is in! Mercury Rx periods can be times of heightened inner-awareness, so doing things like meditation, keeping a journal, reworking old plans, reviewing, or reconnecting to your past can be quite helpful. Mercury Rx is also a powerful time to study, particularly for returning to old studies and re-learning or refreshing knowledge around a subject that’s already been started.
This Mercury in Retrograde cycle can also help you think back to a part of your recent past, and reconnect you to an old dream or goal to follow through on once this cycle is over, but write it all down for now and plan ahead. Someone from your past might get a hold of you for a second chance or opportunity, but that doesn’t mean it’s meant to be, usually, it doesn’t work out for the long-run. But it’s nice to reconnect and perhaps sort out any unresolved issues you might have.
Because we are perceiving things differently, and Mercury and the Sun are both in the sign of Scorpio this time around, the truth tends to come out! Certain things that have been suppressed, hidden, secret or unknown suddenly are shown to us during this time. You just might notice or find some kind of detail you overlooked or didn’t catch before, which can be very helpful. This cycle can bring clarity and help you move past any restrictions or blocks standing in your way. Mercury begins retracing its steps in direct motion starting November 17, 2019.
The Sun shifts into the mysterious sign of Scorpio on October 23rd and “Scorpio Season” officially begins. Every aspect of life can feel super-charged with intensity between now and November 22nd.
Happy Birthday to all my Sun Sign Scorpions out there! But this blog is for all the Signs, so read on to learn more.
The sign of Scorpio is notoriously known for being the darkest (symbolically speaking), mysterious, and deeply psychological sign in the Zodiac, as it explores the soul when it’s under the light of the Sun and truths, deceptions, and secrets are exposed.
Scorpio’s lessons are about depth, intimacy, and transformation. Anything fake or false will be shown for what it truly is while the Sun is in this sign, so if something or someone is superficial it simply won’t work for you at this time, only the real deal will do! This sign and its energy is the detective of the Zodiac, therefore we are more interested in getting to the bottom of our problems, as we work at uncovering what’s been hidden, suppressed, or unseen. We also can be quite obsessed with other people’s problems and can feel a strong urge to help those around us. Under this energy, you might actually enjoy all that is odd, taboo, or different in the world. Anything just plain or average may not be enough for us during this time.
During Libra Season, while the Sun was in Libra over the last month we worked at being fair and equal, as our attention was on our relationships and keeping things more balanced. But under this
Scorpio energy we accept the fact that life isn’t fair, and we are learning to understand that pain and suffering are actually part of the process of life. In order to truly evolve, we must transform ourselves and perhaps go some sort of major breakdown to end something and begin anew.
Scorpio energy is also quite sexy, mysterious, and provocative! So there’s going to be some interesting situations that spark up in our relationships while the Sun is in Scorpio. And the single folks out there may search for a strong love, committed, and long-term during this time. This Scorpio influence keeps us perhaps a little more reserved about how passionate we truly feel, but we can still be strong-willed and intense. This is a time of powerful emotions and some of you might feel rather emotional during its run. This energy can transform certain things in your life, of course, depending on what part of your personal Astrology Birth Chart the Sun is cruising through is what part of your life this energy will be the most evident.
The sign of Scorpio is often represented by the Scorpion, but also, the Mythical Bird, the “Phoenix” can represent this brave sign. The legend of the Phoenix is about how once were ready to go, die off, or end our chapter in this life, this magical bird flies up in the air and catches fire and turns to dust! But from that state, it comes back and resurrects itself back to being whole. Once it has risen back to life, it is ready to start over again. This legend teaches us that sometimes we have to fall apart, and let something end, or let a part ourselves die off to resurrect and come back to life, so we can tap into some kind of new energy and start something anew.
The shadow side of Scorpio energy is we can become more easily jealous, paranoid, obsessive, and manipulative. This energy can cause some of you to be more obsessive about an issue or problem, as we can be compulsive and won’t let things just happen naturally. This, of course, will get you nowhere and it might be more difficult to stop once you have started focusing on something.
Despite how scary or creepy this all might sound, Scorpio is part of the Zodiac Wheel for a reason and we all have a little or a lot of this sign in each of our Astrology Birth Charts. Scorpio energy also gives us incredible drive and strength, which in turn can help us get through difficult times. This sign knows how to survive the worst of situations and has extra reserved up energy to get through. Scorpio energy kicks ass and takes names once it is forced to die off like the Phoenix, so it can figure out whatever it needs to know to come back. So draw upon the Scorpio energy during this time to help you take on difficult tasks or situations in your life.
Curious Mercury and loving Venus are also in the sign of Scorpio at this time, which also runs through Scorpio Season. This means our souls, hearts, and minds are all being ruled by the Scorpio energy, therefore, some of you will be breaking your lives down to rise up once again, and perhaps resurrect yourselves in some way just like the Phoenix!
This can be amazing energy to work with if you want to finish something in your life, after all, Scorpio Season is a time of endings, hence why we choose to celebrate Halloween during this time, as Halloween originated from the Holiday the “Day of the Dead,” which is a time when we should be honoring those who have passed or crossed over, it’s a time to be in touch with our ancestors who lived here before us. With so much Scorpio energy this season going around the veils between this world and other realms are very thin, and we will have an extra spooky Halloween Season as our minds are very in sync with the afterlife and paranormal. Therefore many of you will be able to connect to loved ones who have crossed more easily than usual. And those spirits and energies that are still roaming on this earthly plane will be restless, so often that means more communicative as well. But remember they have to communicate differently with us.
This is also a time when the earth sheds itself, as the Fall into Winter months is the time the planet dies off so to speak, but we know next Spring it will resurrect itself and start all over again. Ask yourself what part of your life do you need to end? What are you shedding away? What part of your life needs to die off and perhaps be started all over? Are you being forced to look at certain parts of your life now, so you will end something? This can be any part of your life, an old worn-out behavior or attitude, a situation, or it could be with a person. Or perhaps it is something spiritual within yourself.
The Full Moon illuminates on Sunday, October 13, 2019, in the sign Aries. The Moon in trailblazing Aries is an opposition with the Sun in charming Libra.
This year’s Full Hunter’s Moon rises from the sky’s horizon right around sunset, meaning it may appear even bigger and more orange than your typical Full Moon.
The Aries/Libra connection under this particular Full Moon means we are learning how to balance the energies of our “self” with the energies of “others.” Aries is all about being assertive when need be, while Libra is more about compromise. The Moon in Aries teaches us about leading, bravery, and being more courageous, and it also shows us how to be independent, and that it’s ok to be dependent in a healthy relationship. It’s a time when our focus may be put on balancing out these two different sides of our life. This can be with anyone you are close too, not just intimate partners, so it can be parents, siblings, children, or just a very close friend.
This Full Moon is a powerful, strong emotional time. Full Moons are always about creating a balance between the Moon and Sun’s opposition. You probably already know what part of your life you should be working on during this Full Moon, as whatever relationship issues that have been up for you as of recently are probably related to this Full Moon energy coming in.
Release all the Junk!
This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to release whatever you need to “let go” or “do away” with, or what doesn’t serve you! The intentions that are set during a “Full Moon” will set you on the right path towards your hopes, wishes, and desires. This is the best time to do some energy work and release old pains and experiences that just have held you down or blocked you up! It’s time to get the old stuff out so the good stuff can come in! Write out a list of what you don’t want and what you do want to see happen in your life next, and check out my Setting Intentions Blog to learn more.

Shadow Side of the Full Moon
This Full Moon is in a tense Square to spooky Pluto which can bring out some deeply buried feelings and rather intense emotions. Sleep may be difficult to come by for a few days before and after this Full Moon peaks because its energy is stimulating. Remain calm, patient, but firm with anyone who loses their cool around you. But also be cautious and let no one mistreat or abuse you! There can be a crisis that comes up first due to our stronger feelings and being so overly emotional. Abusive relationships can get much worse so be careful and protect yourself!
Under this Full Moon in Aries, secrets are revealed as the light shines on the truth of any given situation. But do remember Aries energy is ruled by the planet Mars, the God of War, so people are more amped up and anxious, and the tension can have people arguing or wanting to fight. So pay attention to your surroundings and don’t allow those that are already upset to bait you into a battle, trust me it’s not worth it!
Anyone who is more interested in you or perhaps an admirer, or even a stalker can be more active during this Full Moon time. People are going to feel brave now and can be extra impulsive, so they may be checking up on you the easiest way we all know how nowadays, which is on Social Media. Watch what you post, for the time being, and remember if you share it, it’s no longer private! And if you are feeling obsessive about someone, you may just find some bit of information that is upsetting about them, don’t say I didn’t warn you! It may just be a good time to take a break from social media over the weekend.
Positive Effects of the Full Moon
The good news is lucky Jupiter connects in a beautiful Trine to this Full Moon in Aries. This can help cool down some of the relationship issues coming up with the Moon Square Pluto connection. This is a good time to turn any intense emotions you are feeling into healing your relationship issues. But that’s only if everyone directly involved is willing to do the work to make it happen. This is one of those times when a crisis can be a turning point for some couples, to finally do something to fix their relationship or end it altogether.
This weekend also has strong potential for business partnerships or relationships, as influential people tend to gravitate to those who need their help. This also can bring in a new friend or lover, any new people you might meet under this Full Moon could lead to success, happiness, and even wealth.
Full Moon Bonus!
This Full Moon will provide some strong opportunities to help heal broken or strained relationships. This is usually with family members but also can be with lovers that are separated or even divorced spouses. Once we get through some sort of crisis this energy will help us get through. The energy of crisis is up for lots of folks right now, but hold on because this will start to shift soon once the Full Moon occurs. You will know much more by the New Moon on the 27th.
Lucky opportunities will come during this Full Moon for some folks, as there can be unexpected or last-minute surprises, so say “yes” if someone asks to help out, no, you are not dreaming, it is for real! If anyone of authority wants to help you in some way, let them! Never turn down a gift the Universe is trying to give you, be open to receiving.
Even though there will be challenges during this Full Moon due to its connection to powerful Pluto, it’s still a positive force coming into our lives because it also brings in some amazing healing and lucky energy! Enjoy!
For All Zodiac Signs Venus the planet of Relationships, Love, and often Money enters the deeper shadowy waters of passionate Scorpio today!
This is a time when we explore our love lives and financial matters on a deep soul level. We rather enjoy solving the little mysteries in these areas of our life. So we aren’t afraid or worried about our competition so much, as there’s an inner drive to succeed and move ahead that motivates us even more.
Passions run deep and obsessions are strong, especially in our intimate relationships, but this energy can affect our friendships and family relationships as well. Superficial flirtations or anything false doesn’t work in this energy, as we crave deep authentic soulful connections in love and friendship. The yearning we feel for a connection to both body and soul needs to be special and intense to satisfy our deepest desires.
This influence has our emotions running high, as passion takes over our love lives. We can become quite obsessive and consumed by projects and pleasure, so things like sex, money, and food just to name a few are felt more in a deeper more satisfying way and are at the forefront of our minds.
Trust issues tend to be extremely strong while Venus is in Scorpio! We enjoy knowing more, so we love to investigate and find what is hidden, repressed, denied, or ignored. There can be feelings of jealousy that get triggered, which ignites our insecurities. Issues around betrayal always seem to come up and are brought out in the open during this cycle. It’s important not to possess your sweetheart or lover, as that approach may backfire on you.
Any deeper fears or concerns about control and powerlessness can be much stronger than usual at this time. This can lead to paranoid and obsessive behavior, which usually is related to a relationship or partner, and sometimes our finances. It’s a good time to have those hard conversations or discussions about how you are feeling with your partners and lovers! The truth might just pour out of you, if you allow yourself to be vulnerable enough to open up, so be prepared.
The good news is we definitely can strengthen bonds with our partners during this time, by being honest! It’s important to be mindful of coming to conclusions or being too possessive with those we love, or we can push them away. Try to control yourself and know when enough is enough, and stop yourself if you go overboard. Boundaries folks! And remember too much of a good thing is very real, as you can probe too deeply into someone’s mind and cause some sort of psychological trauma. Don’t disturb yourself or the ones you love.
Enjoy this sultry, sexy time and strengthen your bonds and soul connections with the ones you love.
October 1st: Sweet Venus in Libra squares passionate Pluto in Capricorn and frustrations occur, especially at work and in our relationships. People can get to you in this energy, the little things can set you off! Remember to breathe! With Pluto involved, we can feel rage under this influence. And we want to have fun and play but this energy can demand that you take care of your obligations and this can keep you from enjoying yourself.
October 3rd: Pluto moves Direct from its Retrograde phase: It’s been Retrograde since April 24. This influence has been affecting so many of you more than you realize, so it will be interesting to see what happens once Pluto goes back to its normal pace. Over the last 5 months, we have been going through some deep transformation. Some of you were out on paths to learn new skills in life, some were put through tests and challenges to beat some bad habit or addiction! Now it’s time to show the world you will rise above all the pain and suffering. You can now show others just what you learned. And show off your accomplishments. This is a very powerful energy that can put you through some seriously touch challenges, but as Pluto slowly gets back to its normal pace we will see things lighten up a bit, it just can take through the end of 2019 for some of you.
October 3rd to November 1st:Mercury enters Scorpio, we tend to see through others and are better at reading between the lines, rather than accepting everything at face value. This is actually good energy to do research and purposeful work. We are more driven to get to the bottom of situations and solve the little mysteries in life. We can discover some interesting information under everyday circumstances, as we can work on projects to there completion. Our judgment is more strong and sound.
October 4th: Mars in Libra: Over the next six weeks, passionate willful Mars will be in Libra, this isn’t the best place for the sign of Libra. And we can feel a bit edgy! We can easily get worked up at one point and start freaking out because of our fear of leaving others behind. With Mars in Libra, a little honesty can bring folks closer together. Only stronger connections will survive this influence.
October 7: Sun squares Saturn: This aspect occurs twice a year. It allows us to rid of what isn’t working right in our lives, due to something being impractical. As we can get more clear about our ideas and plans. With the Sun Libra, our relationships are highlighted while Saturn in Capricorn shows us our ambitions. This placement can show you who is helping you and who is not on your side. Since this helps us focus on our long-term goals, we should take some time to make more informative smart decisions that will continue to help us.
October 8th through November 1st:Venus enters Scorpio This is a good time to find ways to bring more passion and depth to your relationships. But under this influence, we can get a little suspicious and even paranoid about our partners and around our finances. You may find yourself obsessing over other people and even wonder if someone’s giving out all your information or telling your business. No matter what happens we want strong authentic connections with those we love. If you are genuinely looking for a soul mate of some kind then get rid of the players and wannabes, and those that are not willing to commit. If you are looking for the real deal and then you could find love in the most unlikely places.
October 13: Sun sextiles Jupiter: These two bodies of energy together bring in amazing opportunities. There are people who are willing to help you now, it just means you have to take advantage of what they have to offer. With Jupiter still in Sagittarius our world opens up to the possibilities, so use this time to go after your goals.
October 13th: Full Moon: A Full moon in Aries occurs.
The brighter side to this Full Moon influence is its connection to happy-go-lucky Jupiter, as it can bring in success on a project or a goal you’ve already been working on. Good luck can suddenly strike, through old friends, or someone else you meet perhaps online can make a wish come true. Look for those who carry the light, so the people who are more positive and who hold you up when you fall. This can create a positive vibe that helps you make a path towards your goals as windows of opportunity open.
You may start to feel discontent with your normal routines and relationships. Things may just feel stale and worn out. Married or committed couples that haven’t been doing so well could have serious issues, but that doesn’t mean you’ll leave or even argue. However, with the Full Moon making a tense square to passionate Pluto, bad relationships can suddenly be thrown overboard, especially if you’ve been keeping your mouth shut, you might just let your partner have it! Usually, this is when we hit that boiling over point for those folks who are harboring some sort of resentment for their partners.
Watch for how many skeletons you have hiding in the closet, as secrets and deceptions can be revealed under this Full Moon time, and for some this means exposure to everyone, so possibly over social media. Someone can just take your business and go Public with it, which can be rather embarrassing.
For those couples who have been dealing with cheating or adultery, there actually can be some more positive scenarios. This Full Moon can help you if you’ve had an affair or were cheated on, as it brings folks back together to work things out.
The Full Moon is always a time of heightened sensitivity as people tend to be more intuitive and just plain Psychic more so than usual. So pay attention and listen to your gut instincts, and follow your intuition closely.
Full Moon October 2019 Times and Dates
Eastern 5:08 pm
Central 4:08 pm
Pacific 2:08 pm
Mountain 3:08 pm
If you live in a different time zone, please adjust.
October 14: Sun square Pluto You just might have to deal with some folks or circumstances that make you take a step back so you can figure out what you want and who you really want to associate with. Confrontations give you clarity during this time as long as you watch how you react. Talking with those who have been your tried and true friends will help you figure it all out. And these challenges might be rough but can help you in the long-term. Work on being flexible and thoughtful with others and consider all your options before making any decisions. We are being taught what part of our destiny we can control and the parts we can’t, so allow this time to pass first before doing anything major.
October 23: Sun enters Scorpio With the Sun’s shift into more passionate and emotionally driven Scorpio, our feelings tend to be more extreme and intense. In whatever areas of your life you need power or stamina this energy can help you, as it is a time we are more resourceful and determined. Use the Scorpio strength during this time as its energy can help you follow your passions no matter how big or small! Our thoughts will dive deeply into the corners of our minds, staying busy is key to fighting off suspicions and paranoid thoughts during this time. Work on solving little mysteries especially for others, as it can be emotionally satisfying.
October 27: New Moon in Scorpio What a powerful potent New Moon this is going to be folks, as we have access to knowledge that helps us figure out secrets and agendas. This is a good time to dig up old emotional baggage to heal, so you can claim your new beginning! People tend to rise and fall from power under the New Moon in Scorpio! It’s time to put it all in folks, give it everything you got to further your goals, allow the passion and strength this New Moon can give you to help inspire you.
October 31: Mercury goes Retrograde in Scorpio Here we go again folks, at this point, we have already been experiencing the slow down of Mercury as it prepared for its Retrograde phase. Which means there’s probably already been miscommunications and little glitches along the way. The good news is that you have an opportunity to revisit and revise ideas, contracts, and agreements during this three and half week cycle. If you went along with something that just didn’t sit right with you or didn’t speak up when you should have to avoid conflicts, now is the time to go back and make things right with yourself and others!
This is a strong time for the truth to come out. Make sure to wait out just how you will react to any information or news you receive until you have checked things out first, and maybe even go over them again and make sure, as this is a time of confusion for all of us. This is the worst time to be making important decisions about your future since you will more than likely change your mind a few more times anyway. Once Mercury turns direct on November 20, you will have the information you need to make better more sound judgments.
Mercury goes Retrograde on Halloween during Scorpio Season this time around, and this makes it the perfect backdrop for a creepy Halloween vibe, but this is exciting energy for those of you who enjoy this time of year! With Mercury Retrograde we tend to get visitors from our past, but the veils between this world and other realms are very thin as it is Halloween or the Day of the Dead time as well, therefore many of you will experience some sort of visit from ancestors or loved ones who have crossed over! This can be in our dreams, but also while awake. Mercury Retro’s energy seems to sync right into this year’s Halloween celebrations, as those veils are blurred during this time and it’s easier to connect. Make sure and honor those loved ones who are no longer here in this realm because they are with you in spirit.
On September 14th, the planet Venus shifts into its home sign of Libra.
Venus rules over love, beauty, money, and relationships. The Zodiac sign of Libra rules our love lives, relationships, and is often about balancing our relationships with a significant other and taking care of ourselves in harmony.
We have had more than our fair share of challenges this year, so this is a wonderful opportunity to refocus on what really matters to us the most, as we can manifest what we desire from the heart! This can include those folks who have been there for us the most. If you have had some sort of rift or conflict with someone lately, this is an ideal time to fix things. So put your differences aside and find some common ground to meet in the middle.
Even if you are one of those kind of people who enjoys being alone, this lovely energy can lead you out and around others, so you might meet up with a family member or a friend during this time, and some of us will be way more social than usual.
Since the Goddess herself, Venus and the sign of Libra both are about what is beautiful, it’s a good time to pamper yourself and do something that makes you feel good about yourself once again. During Venus’s run through Virgo over the last month we had to focus on helping others and our community. Now the focus is turned toward our partners, lovers, and even close family and friends. Perhaps just go get a mani-pedi or take a spa day, or take the whole day off from your responsibilities if at all possible and relax. Do something for yourself you deserve it!
We should also be careful about putting on appearances just to keep the peace. This is an extremely accommodating energy, so we might hold back on saying how we are really feeling, or from asserting ourselves, especially if we feel it’s going to cause any inconvenience for someone we care for. We can be false or superficial to keep out of conflict. Some of us will go to great lengths just to avoid any kind of disagreements.
Take this time to tap into your creative side and do something well, creative! Perhaps spend some time in a place that is beautiful to you, or go on a mini vacay with your lover. It’s can be a beautiful time for couples, as long as you don’t ignore problems that should be dealt with, or even worse try to runaway from them.
During this cycle we can have the urge to merge with people we know and strangers both. So if you’re single or whatever, don’t fool yourself and think you’re in love just because you had that one special date or night out. Give it some time to really get to know them first, as we all can be rather charming during this time.
Venus will be in Libra through October 8th. I hope you have a lovely Venus in Libra time. ~Ruby
The Full Moon energy is building now and will occur Friday the 13th late at night, or very early Saturday morning depending on what part of the world you live in. So starting anytime today you can work on “Setting Intentions” with the Full Moon energy. This is a time to work on releasing from your heart what you no longer need, or what isn’t working for you! Work with the Cosmos and write a letter or meditate, and tell the Universe what it is you want to see happen in your life next. Let go of what needs to be done, be it a situation, person, or change in behavior. What do you want to release? What would you like to create or manifest? It can be about anything. You might be pleasantly surprised with the outcome, as this Full Moon illuminates the truth around the same time as some other cosmic connections are opening up doors for us to release old Karmic Debt. This is your chance to wipe the slate clean! And you get to rewrite the next chapters of your life! Think about your hopes, dreams, and desires, and feel it as if you already have obtained your goals.
Read on below to learn how!
This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to release whatever you need to let go, or do away with, and what doesn’t serve you. The intentions that are set during a “Full Moon” will set you on the right path towards your hopes, wishes, and desires. This is the best time to do some energy work and releasing old pains and experiences that might have held you down or blocked you up! It’s time to get the old stuff out so the new energies can come in!
During the Full Moon, we often experience an energy shift, so we must release the old energies to open up doorways so to speak, so the new energies can be allowed into our lives.
What to Release under a Full Moon:
Negative patterns or bad habits
Unhealthy situations or relationships
What to work on during the Full Moon:
Letting go of both the people and situations that aren’t working anymore. And sometimes it is just an attitude or thought
Clearing space for new energies to come in
Being GRATEFUL for what you already have and what will be
Have a conversation with the Universe, (your higher power, Spirit Guides, Angels, God, etc) whatever you call it! Ask for the “Full Moon” to help illuminate the path that leads you towards your deepest desires. Simply ask to be put on a path towards your dreams and goals.
Patience is important! Remember to allow the time needed for the Moon to light the way, as it doesn’t always happen right away. But sometimes magic happens and it does. The “Full Moon” illuminates the truth and is symbolic for seeing what’s been hidden, secret, tucked away, or suppressed. So ask for the truth to be revealed during this time. You just might be pleasantly surprised by what you learn.
Setting Intentions Guide
What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the Full Moon. Follow the steps below to learn how:
Step One: Clear your Sacred Space Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do your Full Moon work. You are simply calling in some positive energy to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies. Think about where you’re going to perform your energy work. Because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit, sleep or do spiritual work! This is why you feel so comfy in your favorite chair because it feels safe and secure. But also because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.
Step Two: Set the Atmosphere Set the mood or your Full Moon Ritual. Burn some special incense, light some candles (colors do have different meanings,) and play some mood or ambient music that helps you feel spiritually connected. This can be very different for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever tools or colors that make you feel calm, happy, and peaceful.
Step Three: Let It Out You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with. Writing pen to paper can be magical! It helps sync up the mind and body! Then you write what you’d like the Universe to bring in and remove both. Simply write your deepest truths, wishes, and questions down. Think about what energy you’re trying to let go of and release. Write the letter like as if you were talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to push out of your life, and what energy you’re trying to bring in, and be detailed but don’t go overboard.
And just know sometimes things take time. Often we just miss the signs and messages the Universe is sending because they are so subtle. They are not always some sort of earth-shattering sign that shows up like a lightning bolt! More often it’s simply a bird landing in your backyard, or hearing a song on the radio that seems to have special meaning just for you. If you pay attention and see everything as a sign, you will start to quickly pick up on what the Universe is trying to tell you!
As you’re doing this work and setting your intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about, for example; Ask for what you are choosing to come into your life? What changes would you like to see happen? What are you or should you be letting go of? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now? What do you want to release? Think about your long-term goals and your future, and what energy you’d like to create over the coming months.
Step Four: Visualize what you’re Creating Now you’re going to visualize what you have written. First get comfortable again, preferably in the same place and read what you wrote very closely. Then close your eyes and take some long deep breaths, in your nose and out your mouth. See the energy of your heart center, (that’s in the middle of your chest, not your actual pumping heart) but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.”
Next, Visualize yourself in what you’re trying to create or manifest. For example; see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with a Soul-Mate, driving that new car, (just smell that new car smell!) Don’t just think about what you want, but make sure and “FEEL IT,” as if you are really experiencing what you’re visualizing. If this makes you laugh, cry, scream, or whatever, then go with it.
Step Five: Gratitude It’s very important to work on releasing what you don’t want in your life during a Full Moon, but it’s equally as important to not leave a VOID after you are done. So you need to fill that space from releasing with gratitude. Being grateful for what you have and around the work you are doing. When we focus on what it is we don’t have we are focusing on “Lack”, and that will only bring in the things we don’t want. Remember what we put our attention on is what will show up! So instead think and feel the things you are grateful for in your heart. Think about what you already have and be grateful for that. Then you will attract more of that kind of energy, which in turn brings in some better feeling stuff! Don’t be held captive by your pains and past trauma, call in the good stuff folks. Yes, you deserve something good, wonderful and amazing!
Allow the Universe to show you what path to follow over the next month, and let the Full Moons light show you the way! Hopefully, at the very least you will be put on a path towards what you truly desire, all while letting go of what you don’t need in your life anymore. It truly is a miraculous process once you learn how to work with the Moon’s energies.
The Harvest Full Moon illuminates the night sky on Friday the 13/14, 2019, in the sign of Pisces depending on what time zone you live in, and occurs right after Midnight Eastern Time and before Midnight Central Time.
The Moon in creative Pisces and is making an opposition to the Sun in detailed Virgo. This Full Moon is a powerful, strong emotional time due to it being under such sensitive Zodiac Signs. Full Moons are always about creating a balance between the Moon and Sun’s opposition. You probably already know what part of your life you should be working on during this Full Moon, but if not you should focus on balancing your logical mind with your intuition to help solve problems. This is about our thoughts versus our feelings, or left and right brain ways of thinking.
This particular Full Moon can bring up issues that have to do with everyday routines, physical health, and a need for order. This is about combining our everyday world with our visions, spiritual health, wellness, and disorders, with the infinite or some kind of spiritual energy. The Virgo (Sun) energy helps us with the tools we use to deal with our daily lives, while the Pisces (Moon) energy helps us connect to our spirituality and create some sort of healing, so we can better deal with our physical reality and limitations.
This Full Moon can help us develop and learn how to express our feminine energies by understanding how to trust our intuition. Practice allowing your feelings to move through you and flow as these energies do. Learn how to have compassion for all things and yourself during this Full Moon. Ask yourself what you need to forgive and release, and what might be blocking you from happiness. To the best of your ability use the healing powers of the Pisces Full “Super Moon” to help.
If you need some balance in your life this Full Moon can help you learn how to maintain order in your everyday life, without neglecting your spiritual health and wellness. Life can get quite chaotic if you ignore either side of the Full Moon energy. This is a time when we must release something like an old behavior, people or a situation, as this is a time of endings but also new beginnings. Whatever you started thinking about or working on during the last New Moon a few weeks ago will now start to come into being. This is a time of romance and relationships as well.
This Full Moon also occurs right after the Sun has aligned with passionate Mars, and the magical Moon has aligned with the dreamy energy of Neptune. But Mars and Neptune also form a tense opposition, and then sweet Venus and mental Mercury form a conjunction, and finally the Moon will harmonize with powerful Pluto! Unless you know your Astrology this can sound so confusing, but really this is about dealing with many different cosmic influences at once. This seems to be the theme for the month of September. Read on to understand how to handle all of this energy!
This is a highly concentrated potent energy that can feel more intense than a regular Full Moon, and it is “Truth Telling Time” folks, as what’s been kept secret, hidden, lost, suppressed, or denied seems to come out and is revealed. So we can feel overly excited or anxious a few days before the Full Moon occurs, as this connection between the Sun and Moon create intense energy until the Moon swells to its Full illumination. Ask for what you would like to know and the Universe will reveal things during this time. Look for signs and symbols both in life and your dreams and visions to figure it out.
A little Fun Fact is that this Full Moon is considered to be what’s called a “Micro-Moon.” This cute little Full Moon is actually the exact opposite of a “Super-Moon”, which is closer to planet Earth. So a Miro-Moon is actually at its farthest point from the Earth. Some scientists believe this does lessen its effects on the planet, but I will bet many others don’t agree, but we love this little guy irregardless. You go little Micro-Moon!
During this time there are usually sudden discoveries made, and we can experience epiphanies and sudden flashes of insight that help Keep Things Real! Our high expectations can get us into some trouble, as we expect more! Our imaginations are very strong, therefore we have a rich fantasy game going on right now, and can have some issues dealing with reality.
Feelings of needing to change course or escaping can also be very strong during this time, which can be fine if we escape in healthy ways through such things as music, movies, entertainment, or just reading a good book. Since this is an emotionally intense time, some folks will turn to alcohol or drugs to forget about their troubles and pain. Not only can this be a problem, but it can be downright dangerous with foggy Neptune’s energy involved. We can lose control and slip into some sort of lost energy, as we cross boundaries and overdo things. Please be careful and keep a watchful eye out for anyone you see struggling, as depression can set in and poor choices can be made. Help those that can’t help themselves, or those who are feeling badly!
September time seems to have some wonderful opportunities that we just haven’t experienced in awhile, so why not read on to learn how these Cosmic Connections are going to affect you and your life for the month.
A New Moon at the end of August helped kick off September time, and with the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars all in the sign of Virgo we are best off during the first week of the month to work on organizing, editing, and paying attention to the details of our health and work. This is a very fertile and productive time, and is good for freeing ourselves from situations that are restricting or limiting us from finding happiness in our daily lives, routines, work, and health. With all of the personal planets in the sign of practical Virgo, we can create some sort of harmony, and they are all harmonizing with Saturn and Pluto, but are also bumping up against Jupiter and Neptune this month. So we have many opportunities to get our lives together, but we may have to let go of our high expectations.
September 3: Sun conjuncts Mars When these two strong energizers come together, the energy alone can be productive but also can create a lot of friction, the choice is yours on just where you want to direct this amazing energy. It’s important to be strong and confident but do not allow yourself to get into little ego battles. With both planets in practical Virgo, this is a good few days to work on projects or too get involved in something near and dear to your heart that involves helping others.
September 9: Mars trines Saturn We can be much more disciplined but productive at this time, as this stong energy creates a harmonious influence. This helps make it easier to organize and harness these energies to make good use of. Mars in helpful Virgo and Saturn in more ambitious Capricorn can help us make detailed plans to reach our goals. Just make sure to take advantage of this hard-working energy so you can get things organized in your life.
September 14: Full Moon in Pisces The Full Moon on the 14th occurs in the sign of Pisces at the same time as a Mars-Neptune opposition. Pisces is considered to be the most sensitive sign of the Zodiac, and under the Full Moon energy both are known for amplifying emotions. This can be a very overwhelming time, where we just aren’t feeling as tough as usual, so be sure to be extra careful with others as they are feeling emotionally vulnerable and sensitive as well, and you may not know what other folks are feeling or going through. Make sure and get plenty of downtime to not only replenish your energy but to also calm your nerves.
This Full Moon is trying to remind us that we all need to pay extra close attention to our spiritual and emotional wellness. The way we find balance at this time is to express what we need on a spiritual level while maintaining our everyday lives. Under these energies, we can either choose to live in chaos or order, and with the Mars-Neptune opposition at play, there also can be a stronger sense of urgency as we try to restore balance, and some uncertainty, as we learn what’s real and not. As it’s a good time to Zen it out folks and maybe do some meditation, affirmations, journal-writing, listen to calming music, or exercise, whatever you do just do anything that feeds your soul and helps you connect to your spirituality, whatever that may look like.
September 14: Mercury enters Libra During this cycle is a great time to work on resolving recent conflicts, arguments, and misunderstandings as the planet of communication enters the more accommodating sign of Libra. Under this influence we just want to get along with everyone really, with all the chaos and turmoil over the summer, the world can use this energy to help us make amends as it is easier to apologize or to at least try to get along. This can be a wonderful time to be more social and get together with friends and family.
September 14: Venus enters Libra The planet Venus rules over love, beauty, money, and relationships, and is entering its home sign of Libra which rules over such things as love, and relationships. We have had more than our fair share of challenges this year, so this is a wonderful opportunity to refocus on what really matters to us the most, from the heart! This can include the people who were there for us the most. If you have had some sort of rift or conflict with someone lately, this is an ideal time to fix things. So put your differences aside and find some common ground to meet in the middle. Even if you are one who likes to be alone, this lovely energy can lead you into being more social even if it’s just a family member or friend. Since the planet Venus and the sign of Libra both are about all things beautiful, so it’s a good time to pamper yourself, and do something that makes us feel good about ourselves once again, perhaps just mani-pedi or take a whole spa day, or just take whole day off from your responsibilities if at all possible and relax! We should also be careful about putting on appearances just to keep the peace, as we might hold back on saying how we are really feeling, or from asserting ourselves, so we can be false or superficial. Take this time to tap into your creative side and do something well, creative. Perhaps spend some time in a place that is beautiful to you. This aspect runs through October 8.
September 18: Saturn goes direct Saturn that planet of rules and Lord of Karma, finally turns direct form it’s Retrograde phase. This influence is real big on reminding us about taking care of our responsibilities, and bringing our heads out of the clouds so we can deal with any plans or goals we have here on planet Earth! In the mood for a Reality Check? During this time anything we are not taking care of and what we need to be focusing on, can be up in our face to deal with. We can feel quite slowed down at this time, but that doesn’t mean you are not making progress towards reaching your goals. Just don’t rush things as Saturn adjusts itself back to its normal pace from its Retrograde Cycle. So for the rest of the month you can come across blocks, restrictions, and even some limitations, and it will seem like opportunities are not happening or that certain people are not cooperating, but this won’t last for long. Over time we will gradually be able to meet long-term goals and plans will start to become more clear. Ask yourself where you want to be at by the end of the year, and what would you like to achieve. And stay focused on your goals. Anything that Saturn is involved in is about hard work, and that will bring in the greatest rewards. So don’t try to take shortcuts now, instead pick yourself up by your bootstraps and get to work. Simply figure out what it is you want and commit your time and energy to that project or goal. Here over the next few months, you will be glad you did because rewards will start to really show up.
September 21: Jupiter Squares Neptune Jupiter gets into one last tense meeting with foggy Neptune in a set that first formed back in January. This transit pulls on us as we struggle with our expectations, faith, and drams. This is a time when we can be more easily MISLEAD, whether by others or by our own unrealistic expectations. We may have to deal with consequences from being disorganized or exaggerating certain details of our lives, or for being neglectful or extravagant when buying things.
This energy tends to cause restlessness, as our everyday routines can feel quite unsatisfying now. This is a time when we can more easily take shortcuts and detours from our everyday routines. We can be fooled, tricked, or disillusioned by someone or something, so keep a watchful eye out and be careful and don’t avoid the truth. We can also start to form some new beliefs or philosophies, and try to justify why we are avoiding certain issues. This dense energy can cause folks to wander and be more confused, from a lack of being grounded. But that also means we can come up with more open-minded ideas. We just may have bigger issues with setting and keeping boundaries up for ourselves. It’s important this week to stay in reality to the best of your ability, by setting some rules around your routines and regular schedules. This influence can give us some inspiration spiritually speaking as we let go of old false beliefs, expectations, and dreams that were going nowhere in the first place.
During this same time Jupiter also gets into a somewhat challenging aspect with wild Uranus, and this to causes more high anxiety and restlessness, especially if our dreams are not forming and don’t seem to feel fulfilling or are inspiring us. Watch yourself this week for going off on some strange tangent or trip to nowhere, as we can get into the strangest, oddest situation that are completely impractical.
September 23: Sun enters Libra The Sun shifts once again around the Zodiac and as it does every September and enters the sign of Libra. This is also the Autumnal Equinox north of the equator and the Spring Equinox in the southern hemisphere of the planet. This is a special energy that helps us to find balance in our lives as we prepare for this new season. Oddly enough the word Equinox comes from the Latin word that means Equal. Libra is the sign of balance, fairness, and equality. So use this influence and spend some quality time with family and friends. The Sun will remain in Libra through October 23.
September 28: New Moon in Libra To close out the month a New Moon occurs in the sign of Libra, this is indeed a social time that is filled with the hope and promise of New Beginnings. Luckily, also during this time lovely Venus and lucky Jupiter make a beautiful connection that can have you feeling more optimistic and cooperative. This is time for taking care of and nurturing any relationships you want to see grow and become stronger, or even just more important. This is also a good time for negotiations and partnering, and we can find ways to solve conflicts.
If you are already in a committed relationship, any time you spend together during this cycle can really strengthen the bonds you already have. Do things that make you happy or that are more pleasurable as Libra is ruled by Venus and all things that are considered to be beautiful. So take long walks, plan out a mini-vacay, go out to eat at your fav restaurant, or go see a love-themed movie. If you are interested in meeting someone new, get out there and mingle during this time folks and attend special events and accept those invites because you just might meet someone special.
