Time to Elucidate and Define Relationships – Week of September 5-12 2018

The New Moon on the 8th of September is at the 18th deg. of Virgo, with Neptune in opposition just four hours before the partile conjunction of the Moon and Sun. After the Full Moon in Pisces on August 26th the mood swings may continue. Even as some matters are brought to a conclusion, new concerns are ignited. Ceres, the dwarf planet of harvest and time-sharing, enters the sign of Libra on the 7th.  Other sign changes this week are Mercury into Virgo on the 6th, Venus in Scorpio on the 10th and Mars into Aquarius on the 11th. Saturn returns to direct motion on the 7th.  With Neptune initially obscuring the New Moon, perhaps a camouflage effect seeming to linger from the past, while basic shifts in mindsets envision new goals (Mars in Aquarius) finally reaching for the future.

Wednesday September 5th – The Moon in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn today, before traversing on to an opposition aspect (180 deg, tense) to Mars by early morning on Thursday. The Moon in her strength in Cancer is challenged by Pluto’s subversive elements. There is however, a grand-trine formation with MoonNeptune and Jupiter, the water signs, increasing solidarity as well as compassion and understanding. We are drawn to share emotional content with one another, a will to try to overcome adversity.  Mercury at 29 deg Leo is in a quincunx aspect (150 deg, complex) to Mars at 29 deg Cap, playing out a few final tricks, either nasty or good humored, at the conclusion of the summer holidays. Then as Mercury transits into Virgo it is in a quincunx aspect to Chiron in Aries. We should come to our sober minded honesty before the tolling of the bell.

Thursday September 6th – The lunar opposition (180 deg, tense) aspect to Mars in Capricorn early today could challenge a sense of security with a threat of remedial work. The Moon in Cancer transits to a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Venus, Venus then becomes the focal point of a T-square formation, and could facilitate a reduction in anger or discontent. The Moon transits into Leo as a more pleasant mood takes over. The Sun in Virgo is within orb of the opposition aspect (180 deg, tense) to Neptune in Pisces, differentiating between the fake and the real, drying up some of the misconceptions that have been proliferated.  Mercury transits to form a grand-trine in earth signs with Saturn and Uranus in Capricorn and Taurus respectively. The close trine (120 deg, easy) between Saturn and Uranus helps to elucidate the working relationships at this critical time, capturing the attention of the world. Saturn in Capricorn (judgment) has filtered the base materials (Taurus)  and is soon to make an announcement or publish results.

Friday September 7thVenus square aspect to Mars (90 deg, harsh) may tease for the reward, while the Moon traverses the square aspect to Jupiter, to see the humorous side of the issues and answers.  Ceresingress to Libra today, in opposition aspect (180 deg, tense) to Chiron. In this we may draw out wisdom as a measure of judgment is made.  With 6 planets now in earth signs, the importance of objective or material consequences is obvious as earned income and bonus income is easily obtained. Gifts and sharing of the bounty of the earth results. Saturn at a stationary degree in Capricorn turns to a forward direction.

Saturday September 8th – The Sun in Virgo in the opposition aspect (180 deg, tense) to Neptune in Pisces exposes the hidden subversive elements, drying out the phlegmatic matter, as it were.  Heath may be restored, or illness identified. Saturn’s focus in Capricorn is on legality and correctness. Uranus is the iconoclastic radical that is under the microscopic analysis. Identifying the cause and the root of the issues from a legal standpoint is the work that Saturn is commanding. Now the Moon ingress to Virgo adds another point of contact for the grand-trine to reform. General agreement can now be issued. Decisions are made from the analytical results. We are down to the crux of the matter. More legal indictments could be made now.

New Moon in Libra
September 9, 2018

Sunday September 9th – The New Moon in Virgo today has an aspect of opposition (180 deg, tense) to Neptune in Pisces. This makes us feel unsure of the way we are headed. The seed moment is diluted, although may also carry the possibility of inspiration for the future. We lack positive leadership. Our goals may be illusions. There are more psychiatric incidents today, or those of a more extreme nature are reported. The Moon in a trine aspect (120 deg, easy) to Pluto in Cap, puts more control over emotional expressions. There could be a powerful collective response, however, at the same time. Venus ingress to Scorpio is also in a square aspect (90 deg, tense) to Mars as emotions spur actions. There could be a cultural revolt under way. Jupiter in Scorpio is in a sextile aspect (60 deg, friendly) to Pluto in Capricorn, its dispositor, while Saturn in Cap is in a trine aspect (easy) to Uranus in Taurus. Jupiter indicates a movement to undermine policy through psychological manipulation. Saturn’s effort is to contain the radical powers of a revolutionary nature. Check your documents for errors that may affect your future.

Monday September 10thVenus in Scorpio is in a quincunx aspect (150 deg, complex) you may become alert to distortions. Jupiter and Venus are disposed of by Pluto in Capricorn, having an impact on the overall control by leaders and institutions, an influence to humanize and make institutions more responsible to women and families. The Moon in a trine aspect (120 deg, easy) to Mars in the final degree of Capricorn as change is demanded. Pillars of society may be tumbling now. The Sun in a trine aspect to Pluto helps us to exert conscious effort to modify and adapt the institutions and to promote practical implementation of law. The Moon transits into Libra as balance and calm is sought, using conventional wisdom in opposition to the internalized wisdom of experience that Chiron represents standing at the opposing degree of Aries. Thus, we may have to balance the situation and keep the peace while also maintaining an inner sense of knowingness that whatever the present contains, the future will evolve according to destiny.   

Tuesday September 11thVenus in Scorpio is in an opposition aspect (180 deg, tense) to Uranus in Taurus while also sextile (60 deg, friendly) to Saturn in Capricorn. A radical case for unity could be promoted for practical regard of law and order. The Sun in a trine aspect to Pluto. The effect is to unite public opinion. Mars transits into Aquarius today approaching a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Venus and Uranus balancing the opposition of Venus and Uranus. Mars in Aquarius, so radical as to usually disregard limitations, is disposed of by Uranus, so that there is an innate radicalization. The repeat aspect, occurring at August 1st when Mars was retrograding, and from May 16-17th with Mars direct also were in square aspect to Uranus. This is then the third incident of this aspect in the past 4 months. This is a hard aspect between the independent seeking and the transformation promoting energies, as the struggle is to redirect the destructive powers that seek expression. Uranus in Taurus works with natural law. If the impetus to evolve is blocked by individual force, or subverted in some way by powers that disregard consequences, tragedy will again result. This is a critical day to contemplate action and apply restraint. Venus in Scorpio could then be the balance that exists now, as a moderating influence. Venus would be a personal resource, a desirable relationship that helps an individual more beyond the pattern of a destructive behavior. 

Wednesday September 12thSaturn now transits more slowly than does Uranus in Taurus, as the aspect begins to slowly separate, although very strong until the last days of September. The radical elements that have been ingrained and internalized, becoming rationalized and acceptable in some ways, will gradual have diminished power over the direction of institutions and government. Uranus is retrograding into Aries in November, finally turning direct in January. Saturn in the meantime will have advanced the second decant of Capricorn, as the more radical elements are divested from institutional influence. The Venus opposition aspect (180 deg, tense) to Uranus is strong today, as unified powers answer to the radical elements. There could be open battles and Mars in Aquarius moves to strengthen the square aspects, and finally evolving the position of personhood to where there is a balance between desire and recognition of responsibility and respect. Let us have the respect to act responsibly and evolve as individuals.
