STARGAZING – YOUR WEEKLY FORECAST
Week of September 10th – September 16th, 2012
September 2012 looks like a nice flowing month, except for the weather disturbances. The only real intensity is during the third week leading up to the Fall Equinox where there is plenty to focus on, work through, and talk about. Join my Subscription Pages for details.
September gets off to a pleasantly smooth start, and you’ll want to enjoy it while it lasts! Why? Because with Pluto and Uranus swinging back into action in the third week, well, let’s just say things won’t be going quite as smoothly by then.
Venus and Uranus keep the good times flowing on September 13 with flirtatiousness and romantic fun! Then, the New Moon in Virgo rises on September 15, bringing practical matters to the forefront and encouraging you to get your priorities in order.
