Stargazing — Week of Sept. 24th through Sept. 30th, 2018

Sep 24, 2018 | Monthly Astrology|Stargazing

The Autumn equinox on the 22nd had a bit of a hurry up and wait tone for the coming three months. It’s best to take a deep breath and be willing to take half steps towards your goal.

The big harvest moon on Monday the 24th is challenged by Saturn, requiring you to move more quickly while being patient at the same time.

Due to the Harvest Moon being so close to the Fall Equinox it is usually very large and orange in color. Be sure to get out and watch the big moon rise as it should be extra beautiful. This years Full Moon energy is packing a serious punch because the Sun is in Libra, the Moon in Aries and both square Saturn in Capricorn. This is the full moon where you re-balance your individual needs and your relationship needs.

On Tuesday the square is fully in place and you must take responsibility for your actions and bring past relationships, projects, and business matters to a fair and just conclusion.

Wounded-healer Chiron is aligned with this Full Moon. Healing your emotions or helping others with their emotional wellbeing is supported now. Begin to look at what is working in both relationships and finances and know that this Full Moon begins the process of reviewing and revising all types of relationships as well as your material world needs and values.

Be willing to take half-steps towards your goal, and it would be best if your goals are both tangible and long-lasting. There is an abundance of planets in the action signs (Aries, Libra, Capricorn). This helps you accomplish a great deal, but be careful of over committing yourself.

Also note that love & money Venus is slowing down to turn retrograde October 5th -November 16th. 

On Thursday, the 27th matters begin to get a bit easier. The Sun, Mars trine will pump some high powered energy into whatever is going on, and bring strength, comfort, and wisdom.

The Gemini moon is in its quiet void-of-course phase all day Sunday September 30th. This is great for short, quick tasks and communications with people, but not for important decisions or purchases.

In the evening, Pluto ends his retrograde cycle that started back in April. Pluto is about standing in your power and releasing anything that takes your power away (attitudes, beliefs, behaviors, controlling people, etc.). This change to a forward motion can help in transforming past experiences through the power of forgiveness.

Although this feels a bit far away now, begin to think about what you are releasing and building towards 2020, as we enter into a new decade. There will be an important alignment of planets in Capricorn at that time. Guaranteed, the world is going to change.

October preview:

The big event of October is Venus turning retrograde in Scorpio and Libra, October 5th -November 16th. Since Venus goes retrograde less often than all the other planets, it is a significant time to review and revise all types of relationships including lack of relationships. You values surrounding money and possessions is up for a change and revision as well.
