Mercury ends its retrograde cycle and pulls out of its storm on Friday, September 17th. It is time to refocus and plan your Fall achievements. Begin new projects at the Fall Equinox, and think back to last spring to review old projects that need to be updated or completed. Remember, Uranus can be an explosive planet, and as it conjuncts Jupiter, can create a “grand” effect. Last spring at this conjunction we experienced the Gulf oil spill. A great problem in water, pertaining to the water sign of Pisces. The next conjunction is this Friday, September 17th. These planets are still in a water sign, so whatever the upset, it will pertain to water in some way. Hurricane Igor is on its way, and it is one of the names I predicted, as well as Earl and Matthew, that would have an effect on the East Coast this fall. Igor could possibly merge with Julia, creating one of the worst and most dangerous Hurricanes in history. We may create a new word, merge-o-canes!
Mercury is now direct and it’s time to get organized as you sort through those areas of your life that you want to keep, and that which you want to release. These Fall months promise to have a deep emotional tone to them, and it will not be easy to stay in your Truth. Be honest with your emotions, and don’t try to hide and pretend that it will all blow over. Not a chance! Willingness to go inside and work on emotional release will be good for you, even if it’s not comfortable. As we approach the Fall Equinox and Full Moon in Aries, this next week, it is time to complete old projects, release those thing in your life that are holding you back, and know what people, places, and things will not be a part of your new cycle, which begins to get moving by late January into March, 2011.
STARGAZING – YOUR WEEKLY FORECAST
Week of September 13—September 19, 2010
The Air Signs
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
A financial project, negotiation or important investment is going to require all of your attention this week, Air Signs. Mercury, Venus, Mars and the Sun all add a shot of energy to the week, and the results look positive. On the job, the Moon in Scorpio at the beginning of the week speeds up events, making your stress levels rise while tiring you out. But thanks to Pluto changing direction, you’re able to get organized and face the onslaught of work and responsibility. If personal worries have been weighing you down lately, an important planetary gathering helps you find solutions. Suddenly you’re relieved and much more relaxed. Professionally, an opportunity opens up that is essentially a major turning point in your career. First you will need to get some additional training, but that doesn’t scare you. On the contrary, you’re more motivated than you’ve been in a long while. Concerning your finances Air Signs, the Moon at the beginning of the week may send an unexpected expense your way. If you’re single, there’s not much action for your affection-starved heart. Singles, your tendency to idealize love is complicating your life. Be careful, you may be looking for something which doesn’t exist, and setting yourself up for disappointment. You desperately need to widen your social horizons; try to get out and meet as many new faces as possible! Couples, your intimate life is in the spotlight. The planets are pretty much leaving you to your own devices. You may be a little bored, but it’s up to you to create a little romantic excitement, by giving your partner some unexpected attention. Your partner is awakening your desires and creating a feast for your senses.
Your Love Week—Air Signs:
Be careful on Monday, Air Signs. Poor judgment leads to awkward situations. You’re so eager to be with someone that you might cross the line, thanks to impulsive Mars. Remember that Tuesday when Pluto goes direct, Mars enters Scorpio, and the Sun opposes the Moon. Love is powerful and dangerous. Restrain yourself, because these outbursts will just get crazier starting Tuesday evening. You can safely follow your intuition on Wednesday, although it takes an unusual lover to follow where you lead. Late Wednesday and early Thursday, a Moon-Venus sextile and Moon-Saturn square make you everyone’s sweetheart and could land you a Friday night date with someone who’s been interested for a while. A Moon-Mercury trine on Thursday and Moon-Uranus sextile on Friday set you up for the perfect weekend under an Aquarius Moon. Don’t push too hard, and he or she might be back Saturday. A Jupiter-Uranus conjunction that night suggests your luck is finally improving. Saturday and Sunday are a mix of sensuality, spirituality, hard work, and amazing luck.
The Fire Signs
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Monday opens up a hot spot for planets that urge you to mix and mingle this week, and this directly affects your wallet. Lucrative negotiations, higher revenues or simply a streak of funds are all part of the benefits this planetary get-together in your zodiacal bank can bring you. This week your professional life has all your attention so that you can bring in some much needed cash. A major planetary gathering in Virgo is facilitating matters for you, and may even bring a positive, unexpected turn to events. New doors open—and your ambitions carry you towards exciting horizons. You will have to work hard, but your efforts will not be in vain. If you’re single, Saturn is making you quite selective. You may appear distant and somewhat unfriendly to prospective partners, who are hesitant to approach you. Remain on your guard. Neptune retrograde can place a real charmer on your path. Don’t believe everything they say and don’t hand over the key to your heart to anyone who hasn’t proven their worthiness. On the job, Pluto retrograde requires you to take a second look at some of your strategies. You may need to modify your modus operandi, in order to move ahead. Couples, the planets have deserted your relationships sector! Everything at home is calm, relaxed and you enjoy a feeling of serenity. Neptune retrograde continues stirring up doubts. If your union is solid you’ve got nothing to fear. It it’s not, the crisis escalates. To wrap it all up, your bank account under the influence of Pluto retrograde brings restrictions that require you to tread carefully.
Your Love Week—Fire Signs:
Fire Signs feel a romantic energy surge when the Moon enters Sagittarius on Monday, but beware of overdoing it. Optimism comes easily on Monday when the Moon trines your ruler Jupiter and enters your sign. Your magnificence could overwhelm your date Tuesday when Pluto goes direct and Mars enters Scorpio. Tuesday’s Sun-Moon square turns requests into warnings. Ceres, Neptune, and Chiron teach you subtler romantic communication on Wednesday. Capricorn’s advice about sincerity instead of scoring helps you avoid a Wednesday collision between high hopes and broken promises. With Thursday’s Moon-Saturn square and Friday’s Sun-Moon trine, focus your energy on personal fitness. Friday brings out your charming sex appeal, but a Sun-Ceres square reminds you that a lasting relationship has to meet everyone’s needs. Saturday’s Moon-Saturn trine inspires patience. With Sunday’s Sun-Neptune quincunx, look at someone’s spirit as well as his or her body. Strength and confidence improve your luck this weekend along with the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction and Mars-Pluto sextile. Who could refuse you now?
The Water Signs
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
There are a lot of planets hanging around in Virgo this week Water Signs. Luck is on the side of your projects. And if you need to dive into an administrative matter, all will go smoothly. Switching to the love gear, if your heart is free, Uranus and Jupiter create the right conditions for love-at-first-sight encounters and other situations that get your heart beating with anticipation. Be careful because both of these planets are retrograde, and this can spell illusions and disappointment. Protect yourself. If you’re one of a couple, this week Mars, Mercury, Venus and the Sun all meet up to inflame your senses and add excitement to your intimate life. If there has been tension lately, it melts, clearing the way for a fresh- and passionate- new start. Singles, you’re looking for love in all the wrong places. The opportunities keep slipping through your fingers. There’s nothing to be done, this just isn’t the right time. It’s up to you to create it. The same holds true on the job. The sheer lack of opportunities has you pacing with impatience. Perhaps you should go out and provoke destiny a little. On the job, you’re taking it easy. After all, if there’s no big reward in store, and no prestigious pat on the back in sight, there’s no reason to break a sweat. Remember, your finances are subject to Saturn’s mood swings. If you’re waiting for money to come in, muster all your patience because the wait looks long. However, your finances look stable; your wallet should encounter no major worries.
Your Love Week—Water Signs:
With all of Monday’s mixed signals from planets interacting in Water Signs, you’re a loose cannon in the dating world. Mars stays wild even after the Moon leaves Scorpio on Monday. Pluto goes direct early Tuesday, and Mars enters Scorpio later. You’ll play a lot harder for the next six weeks. Make sure no one gets hurt. It probably helps a little that you mean well! The Moon sextiles Neptune and Chiron on Wednesday, restoring your good judgment and security, and that special someone is less afraid. Wednesday the Capricorn Moon infuses your life with sincerity and excitement. Thursday’s Moon-Venus sextile and Moon-Saturn square create a bond between caring people. Thursday also brings more discipline. On Friday keeps your options open. When Jupiter and Uranus conjoin in Pisces on Saturday, it’s a green light. Hit the gas and go! Jupiter conjunct Uranus brings luck even if you don’t recognize it.

Aquarius energy, distant and cold, may interfere with your weekend love life, but now you have the strength to handle awkward questions and old mistakes The Aquarius Moon makes your weekend about friendship, not romance. Next week should be better.
