Reflection from last week (skip down to long form weeklies to get this week's astrology)

Monday September 19th was significant as I found myself ‘reviewing or going over some argument or communication issue.” Reminding me a LOT of the Judgement card, I noticed a pattern that was a fractal of my relationship with my mother playing out in front of me, and it felt like an unstoppable force trapping me, much like it does with her. I had said the following about this day: “this has come up before but with Cancer Moon squaring Aries Chiron, it could strike a deep cut, a mother wound, a childhood wound might come up,” and it was distressing how accurate this was. As I write this, I am camping with my mother and contending with the fractal nature of how our issues repeat. Basically this all comes to head around me feeling trapped.


Interestingly, my reaction to feeling trapped is often to write, and probably how I developed an early and easy channel around it.


Thursday 22nd was equinox. It definitely felt like a threshold, but I was too busy to understand how or why.


Friday 23rd. Mercury Cazimi was another threshold in a week of doorways, but again, I have no words to put this into practice. I did end up lying on the ground in a tent while camping and getting a lot of sleep. Sometimes that’s the full definition of self care, and I managed to thwart any anxiety because of it.


Sunday September 23rd I got home from camping and cleared through my space, wrote my intentions and started anew for the week. I made salt boundaries in my space and readied my week to be cleared, in the way that an air season clears. I was happy to be alone in the house and in my room, listening to the music I want. Earlier this morning I felt profoundly trapped, but later at home, I felt as if I swam to shore and was catching some breath. This day does feel sacred, perhaps because my room smells like fresh copal, and I’ve managed to clear out my space in an energetically aligned way. It's Libra season after all, and Libra rules my 4th house. Space and home are really focal points for me. Strangely, although Libra season, and this full moon are centred around relationships, I had no desire to share my time with anyone else. Energetically I made a big boundary around myself, which is interesting because my new moon intentions centred around meeting a new partner. Somehow this interplay between self (Aries Jupiter) and others (New moon conjunct Venus and Mercury) has managed to deconstruct into a big awareness of what I fear with the “other” and how to be at peace with it.

Long form Weekly Transits:


All Week:

Sun is Libra, we have 6 planets in retrograde, including Mercury, Mars is Gemini where it will be until next year and we’ve had a long-ass Aquarius Saturn/ Taurus Uranus square that’s still affecting us.

Monday September 26th

Libra Sun opposite Aries Jupiter @ 3 degrees

Libra New Moon Separation with Venus & Mercury still conjunct

Libra Moon opposes Aries Chiron @ 14 degrees


Today there may be a tension between our beliefs about our self and what is needed in our relationships. Since this is Libra season, you are being asked to give a little, which is all fine unless you feel as if “giving a little” erodes some of your inner foundation. So what does it mean to striking a balance between giving in relationship, and standing by your beliefs, your growth, and your personal trajectory? Guaranteed you are contending with this through connection and communication from yesterday’s new moon. You are taking a step forward. Ugh, Chiron is grinding against Moon in another Aries/Libra polarity opposition, meaning wounding and moods are bringing things up. Relationship and self are highlighted again, as maybe we are rehashing some old stuff/habits in our relationships? Have we agitated a deep seated wound? How can you transcend this "hurt" habit? Wounds sometimes bring us back to our most childlike reactions. It’s hard to parse this out-- especially if it feels like you are 3 years old again and you don’t feel safe. But this is your work. Can you find a new communication pathway, reaction, or way of connecting? Can you break new ground?


Tuesday September 27th

Libra Moon square Capricorn Pluto @ 27 degrees


Libra Moon is skilled in negotiation, seeing both sides, and trying to do what’s best for all. Libra Moon wants to create a sense of safety and wellbeing and will try to smooth things over at all costs. It wants very much for everyone to get along. Capricorn Pluto is good at turning the soil, bringing up the roots of the weeds, and killing off the invasive species. Capricorn Pluto is going to expose whatever is rotting the roots, and-- if necessary-- kill off the plant that cannot grow under these conditions. This square presents a challenge for those who like to keep the peace at any cost, who’d have us getting along even though we are adversaries, and who would rather “see both sides” than take a stand. Capricorn Pluto will have us facing this tension of what is balance, and what can we not let go of? This may hit us in uncomfortable places.


Wednesday September 28th

Scorpio Moon opposes Taurus NN @ 15 degrees

Gemini Mars Trines Aquarius Saturn @ 19 degrees


After yesterday’s Pluto action, Moon has gone plutonic by osmosis in Scorpio. These are deep, investigative fixed waters for Moon to plunge into, and power struggles are likely; if only imagined. What's interesting is that there are some futuristic karmic vibes to this one. Where is your life going and how does today suggest this to you? Did you make a realization that has become part of your body and soul today? How has yesterday's transformation become real?

Action-packed, fast-talking Gemini Mars is ready to serve the collective. Today has movement, however slow, and fixed, and somehow Saturn, with its boundaries– coalesces with this movement to better serve humanity. Sounds lofty, but it doesn’t have to be. As much as we may take issue with Saturn, Saturn keeps us on our earthly path, and we have a responsibility to the collective, whether we like it or not. If we try to align to the greater good, we will be well served at work, at home, and in the groups we are part of.

Thursday September 29th

Scorpio Moon opposes Taurus Uranus @ 18 degrees

Venus enters Libra

Scorpio Moon squares Aquarian Saturn @ 19 degrees

Brief yod with Scorpio Moon at apex (19 degrees) inconjunct Gemini Mars (19 degrees) and Aries Chiron (14 degrees)

Minor triangle Capricorn Pluto Apex 26 degrees sextile Scorpio Moon 25 degrees and Pisces Neptune 23 degrees


With Venus entering Libra today, romance just got sweeter. Venus does well in Libra, the sign of: relationship, getting along, justice, fairness, and negotiation. Venus wants to connect, get along, negotiate, and come to agreements.


Enter Scorpio Moon to bring some raw, sexy power to the day as it shows us what it can bring to the table. It may make us deal with whatever financial or material surprise just came our way that is making us super uncomfortable (Moon square Uranus). It may make us feel frustrated as we try to gain personal power within a world that is playing by the rules of technology, the internet, and all the people who don’t seem to care that climate change is a very real threat to humanity. What can we do--individually-- about that? (Moon square Saturn) We may get triggered and say something that blows up in our face, or someone says something that triggers us, only to find our deepest instinct is to sting first ask questions later (Moon apexing yod with Chiron & Mars.) We may realize something big, deep, universal, while on a medicine journey, or on a sixth glass of wine at home, that changes everything and brings us to a deeper compassion for ourselves and our ancestors. (Minor triangle) Whatever Scorpio Moon brings you, remember that your shadow is always there and usually goes unseen, unacknowledged, and is usually borne from ancestral or personal trauma. Understanding, acknowledging and unmasking this shadow IS personal power. You are stronger to face it and bring it to light.

Venus in Libra might be very uncomfortable with shadow work, yet it is the something that tethers us to others, and makes us humans with compassion. Hopefully Scorpio Moon brings us some sexy times at the very least?


Friday, October 1st

Mercury Stations Direct @ 24 degrees (opposing Picean Neptune @23 degrees)

Sagittarius Moon opposes Gemini Mars @20 degrees

Sagittarius Moon squares Picean Neptune @ 23 degrees

Sagittarius Moon squares Virgo Mercury @

Libra Venus opposes Aries Jupiter @ 2 degrees [Record Scratch] Mercury changes course and goes direct while directly opposing Neptune. Is the confusion finally breaking? It’s the first day of October, and Moon is now in expansive Sagittarius. Our shadow work of yesterday is feeding a sense of newness as Moon opposes Mars (what is truth? Let’s do yoga!) Moon squares Neptune (what is truth and why is it so confusing?) Moon squares Mercury (How can we ground with so much overwhelming energy?) Sagittarius Moon wants to take us forward, and out. Meanwhile, Libra Venus opposing Aries Jupiter suggests that we’ll be challenged with what’s happening between our beliefs about ourselves and our desire to connect with people and partners. Relationships are asking us to meet them halfway; how do we do this without throwing away our beliefs?


Saturday October 2nd

Capricorn Moon Square Aries Jupiter @2 degrees

Capricorn Moon square Libra Venus @ 2 degrees

Capricorn Moon square Libra Sun @ 9 degrees

We have needs for survival and our bodies need food shelter and clothing. Capricorn Moon knows that. Emotions come secondary to fight-or-flight with austere Capricorn Moon, who sees financial security as emotional safety. Capricorn Moon will work hard but will it get rest when it needs it? Will it speak up for itself? Maybe if it has a square to Aries Jupiter, it will look at its belief system, or when it squares Venus it may look at how it connects to others and assess whether pleasure is on the menu. Perhaps when it squares Libra Sun it may admit that it needs pleasure on the menu, sometimes. Capricorn Moon is taking care of us on a macro level, so we can thrive in society, but it needs help to decompress and let go of all that seriousness. Libra Sun just might provide a little levity, and perhaps some friendliness in the mix. Libra sun is like the manic-pixie-dream-girl in the rom com, to Capricorn's "work too hard" trope. Perhaps you can defy cliches and find space for all of this in your complex personality.
