STARGAZING — Week of Sept. 26th through Oct. 2nd, 2016

Sep 24, 2016 | Monthly Astrology|Stargazing

It’s fall but the cosmic weather is unseasonably warm and sunny. Unfortunately, it’s not going to last long, so be ready to take full advantage of all the good things coming your way.

fall boquetThe Sun and Jupiter align on Monday, September 26th. This amazing combination of power and luck happens only once a year, sounding a loud all clear gong for growth and expansion in all areas of your life. This is one of the most optimistic combinations in astrology, so do something very nice for yourself at the beginning of the week. Buy one lottery ticket, just in case this lucky combination has your name on it.

The week supports art, luxury, and relationships, and begins with the Moon in Leo to help open hearts. It may be difficult to notice, but burn-your-bridges Pluto ends his retrograde period on Monday morning (since April). Apparently Pluto is in agreement with this enthusiastic and life-giving energy, because it is turning direct in harmony with this lucky alignment. Pay attention to any hidden emotions or obsessive thoughts now as Pluto can help you to deal with them. Now that the Pluto dragon is awake and moving out of its cave, it will be much easier to confront its demands.

Mars-EarthAnother sign of good fortune arrives on Tuesday when Mars leaves Sagittarius and enters Capricorn until November 8th. Mars spent an extra-long nine months in Scorpio and Sagittarius since last January. Finally, the ambitious warrior is moving on to new ground. Since the aggressive Mars vibration resonates in harmony with the energy of the ambitious Capricorn Goat, this means there are rewards in store over the next six weeks for those who don’t mind putting their nose to the grindstone. Mars helps you get moving on your ambitions and Capricorn helps you build them in a lasting way. Direct your energy into creating a solid foundation for whatever you want to create next. This is a practical, hard-working combination that, with focused hard work, will bring you future rewards.

New-MoonThe second New Moon of September is on the 30th. The cardinal signs of Libra, Aries, and Capricorn are strong with energy now, so don’t hesitate to kick yourself into high gear. This Libra New Moon is the third green light of the week, and it echoes and amplifies last week’s Fall Equinox message that it’s a time for peaceful new beginnings that bring you balance and harmony.
The elements of air and earth are also strong, so you can certainly bring your great ideas into form. Because do-it-big Jupiter is a part of this New Moon energy, be courageous and ask more of yourself than you normally would. This isn’t a New Moon to be hesitant, so tell the world what you want and be willing to take a risk on yourself to bring it forth.

money-graphicThere is a minor “caught between a rock and a hard place” connection between your practical side and your rebellious side. (Or perhaps between your available cash and energy sides) Don’t let that stop you from working on your dreams, but do find a middle ground between a complete revolution and your average same-ole – same-ole.

Between the Sun-Jupiter conjunction, Pluto turning direct, Mars exalted in Capricorn, and the Libra New Moon, this is unmistakably a week to get a move on!
