Aug 29, 2015 | Monthly Astrology|Stargazing


Looks like we’ll have to get up off our beach chairs and slowly get dressed for fall. It’s always nice when Labor Day weekend is late in the week, giving us an extra few days of summer enjoyment.

Moon-eclipseSeptember 2015 promises to be a dynamic, passion, and shocking-filled month, with surprising changes ahead. There are two eclipses in September and Mercury turns retrograde on the 17th in relationship focused Libra. When you combine deep emotions and communication challenges, you get an interesting and changeable month! Just be sure not to make any rash decisions that you may regret later.

Monday completes August, and points us to a versatile September, with high activity and constantly changing movement. The moon moves into Aries urging a faster pace as fall begins. The Sun is opposite Neptune. This energy helps you see what is real and what is fantasy. This combination can also have you lost in daydreams one moment, and be highly active the next. Relationship planets Venus and Mars align in Leo Monday evening, making it a good night to share with your partner, or to otherwise improve relationship energy; and can be a sexy little number as well as a wonderful, loving combination to close out August.

Love CoupleHowever, someone threw in a monkey wrench because Venus is retrograde, which can mean a “one-time thing.” This energy brings self-involvement so you might want to wake up to reality and brace yourself for the drama of “Hey, what about me?”

Pluto and EarthOn Saturday, the 5th, (the Labor Day weekend) Pluto brings in some positive energy and the strength and perseverance for us to deal with any secrets or that which had been underground and hidden from our consciousness. Time to bring them out into the Light to be addressed and healed. Sunday, the 6th, brings Venus forward again, so the Labor Day weekend is packed with a few punches, including some poor, stormy weather, especially on the US East Coast. Venus remains in Leo through October but after Sunday, the 6th, happy days are here again. This expands your heart as well as your bank account, and is perfect for couples who are looking to set a wedding date!
