Reflection from last week (skip down to Long Form Weeklies for this week’s astrology)

The biggest signature of the opening of last week was the apparent approaching Mercury-in-retrograde mix with Libra Moon. Right away I was hit with support desk calls, login issues, and messages that didn’t come until hours after they were sent.

My friend got hacked through her professional account, a real headache and drag, and mostly turned out OK. But for a hot minute it was really worrisome and scary.

By Wednesday, there were a lot of minor disappointments around me in my friend circle.

In my personal life I dealt with something quite chaotic and unsettling that tested my needs and my boundaries. It

shook me up for the rest of the week. Yods don’t want me to get too comfortable, it seems. A friend texted me about the yods themselves- I have yet to find out how they were manifesting for her. But the energy was sharp and difficult to weather.

I found myself really needing alone time to sort out the energy, and find my bearings. There was a lot of contending, wondering, working through uncomfortable feelings.


Then by Friday, it seemed like it had all been a dream. The sharp energy of the week had dissipated for me, and I woke up with some pep in my step. I noticed that I was really connecting to music while I worked; and hot diggity, if I didn’t eat the best tomato I’ve tasted in decades!


By Saturday, life was normal-ish again. I spent the day alone, in a week that was relatively solitary. Some of it was by choice, and some of it not, but I feel like last week was preparation for THIS week. Moon was working us with these yods while as we look ahead, we are facing really two major astro-events this week-- and the astrology-- as I write it, really does echo its own lessons. Sometimes it feels like I’m reading a narrative from the sky. It’s not difficult to have reverie and respect for the lineages that bring us here to this magic. After last week, I feel potentially ready to walk into the Libran and Virgoan hall of mirrors. Famous last words, right?


Long Form Weeklies:

Monday Sept. 5th

Venus enters Virgo (this actually happens on Sunday 4th in my time zone)

Mars enters retrograde zone (actually also happens on Sunday 4th in my time zone)

Capricorn Moon square Libra Mercury @ 7 degrees (Moon is apex of T- square with Jupiter @ 8 degrees)

In many parts of the colonial world we call this Labor Day. How fitting that the day of the worker is during Virgo season, a hardworking and humble earth sign that can really perform the tasks that need to be done. It’s tempting to look at Virgo as “boring” or “pedestrian, low level,” after flashy Leo season, but anyone who knows a Virgo, knows it’s anything but. Virgo does the work, period. Greatness abounds.

So with Venus in Virgo now, it’s us really looking at our relationships, learning, studying, and filling our connections with substance, the little things to make our friends and partners happy. We’re ready to get back to what made those connections strong. We’re ready to make the little tweaks and changes that are needed for relationships to thrive. That goes to finances and our abundance factor. It’s harvest season. Here in my part of the world, our tomatoes are ripe, raspberries are practically falling off the vines, and canning season is kicking into full gear. The work pays off. Those of us who $pent too much during Leo season are looking at ways to equalize our credit cards. Or be a little more careful about where the money goes, or invest in things that will last longer.


Yesterday Mars entered its retrograde zone, meaning we should all be cognizant of our tongues and mind’s chatter. We can easily say the wrong thing, or find ourselves defending ourselves from invisible monsters. If we can take a beat BEFORE we say things, and do an analysis of: “do I absolutely, unequivocally know that this is true?” we may not fall into shadow Gemini Mars behaviors. This is showing up for me already as I notice myself multi-taking to a fault, watching a show, checking media, and eating at the same time. I need to check myself.


Austere and hardworking Capricorn Moon makes a Mutable square to Libra Mercury in this T-square with Aries Jupiter. This could create some inner conditions to be offended, hurt, bothered by what is communicated by another. Capricorn Moon may pretend that it isn’t happening, or transmute the feelings into a big deal. Try not to withdraw or ignore the big feel (see also the paragraph above) and if possible, try to work through it. There is potential for a breakthrough in communication here, to be heard, or be seen, if you work with these conditions. At the very least, working through it, is in itself its own reward.


Tuesday September 6th

Capricorn Moon conjunct Pluto @ 26 degrees


There’s some earthly upheaval coming here today. For many, this is back-to-school day for themselves (teachers and students) or their children, which can be emotional and difficult, especially in light of the past few years. It’s also a threshold- the start of something new, is the end of something. There is a goodbye to summer or winter (depending on your hemisphere) and all the hope or dread that comes with it. I always look forward to autumn, but I have friends who are “trying to squeeze the last drop” of sunshine.


There is a fated moment we will come to understand here. If you can tune into your body today (well, everyday if possible, but hey, I don’t have chronic pain to contend with so maybe just today) it will have something to tell you about how you’ve changed. It’s a quick moment, but it could be profound.

Wednesday September 7th

Quick yod: Virgo Sun apexes inconjunct Aquarius Moon 13-17 degrees and Chiron in Aries at 15 degrees


This suggests a personal moment where ego/ shadow/ body/ and wounding all come together to tell us something. Where is Virgo in your chart? This will point to what the message/ realization/ epiphany is about, and will come into your focus for a hot minute. Aquarius Moon and Chiron in Aries lend some beautiful fuel to this moment, from the hive mind of consciousness and wounds of identity.

If you have been struggling with your identity and ego in some way, there might be a key here.

Thursday September 8th

Moon conjunct Saturn Aquarius (18-20 degrees) square North Node & Uranus in Taurus

Oh another fixed square vibe, involving Saturn. There may be a feeling of restriction, contraction, or limitation in our bodies or instinctual self. This may be something that you’ve been dealing with all year, or for a long time. These cycles involving the North Node and Uranus are actually chipping away at the sculpture of your life. You may not see what it looks like yet, but each square and conjunction doing something to remove a block.


Sometimes the arbitrary blocks in our life were actually put up by us– not so arbitrarily. They may be protective, or habitual, or like a survival mechanism. They may have served us well in the past, and now, we don’t know how to let them go. Like a security blanket that you’re too old to be carting around, you may be attached to the safety of your block.


This moon is asking you to trust the future, and yourself within it. You are a part of a larger force. Are you ready to move the block?


Friday September 9th

Pisces Moon opposes Virgo Venus @ 5 degrees

Pisces Moon squares Gemini Mars @ 11 degrees

Deep Pisces Moon will deepen into the collective psyche and our dreams. Pisces moon is intuitive and psychic, making us more sensitive to all the incoming messages around us. With an opposition to Virgo Venus, we may see a deeper narrative or situation unfolding with our regular relationships. We may see the undercurrent of emotional terrain of a succession of behaviours. There is more to the story here, and Pisces Moon picks up on it. The square to Gemini Mars takes us further into a story, as intuitive information convalesces with our thought processes. We will be tempted to do or say something. Can you bite thy tongue? There are messages coming through your channel, all kinds of them. Your challenge will be to understand what is true and what is not; or better said: what is useful and what is not. Remember Pisces is impressionable, idealistic, and has escapist tendencies. Virgo is practical and sensual. Gemini is curious and changeable, but curiosity here can be the higher motivation. Instead of a quick reaction, can you channel the Backstreet Boys and say:

Tell me why?


This energy could be well used for artistic endeavors, or for sexy times. Altered states could be interesting today, if approached in a sacred manner with reverence and intention. Alternatively you could find yourself having imbibed too much wine, in an argument that goes nowhere fueled by extreme emotion you don’t understand. Not that I’ve done that before, or anything.


Saturday September 10th

Full Moon in Pisces 17 degrees (T square with Mars @ 11 degrees Gemini)

Mercury goes Retrograde in Libra 8 degrees

Pisces Moon conjunct Neptune @ 24 degrees


This day has it all! Confusion! Culmination! Relationships! Communication issues! For some reason, I love this day for its medicinal chaos. There is an overall healing aspect bridging Moon with Neptune today, despite Mercury going retrograde in Libra. Oh the places you'll go! Mercury is going to be reviewing some things that came up recently. You may notice already that miscommunications and technical glitches abound.


Where is Libra and Virgo in your chart? They hold cues to what might be happening for you. I already have some big ideas of where this is going for me, and this week already has me tender from the lessons it’s hammering on. The point is, whatever came up last week or is part of an overall story arc for you, intensifies now.

This full moon, aspecting Mars, feels like it may come with some miscommunications itself. Full Moons are culminations, and they have built in intensity. Mars in Gemini is the apex of this full moon's T-square, meaning we might get on the wrong track. While we are curious about what’s going on, this Mars may act before it really understands. It might be distracted or reactive, especially with Neptune in the mix. Neptune and Moon together are confusing and shrouded in mystery. All to say, is that I doubt that you’ll have the full story, whatever happens here. At least, initially. So the advice is-- let’s not act with certainty or righteousness today! Let’s fumble around in the dark a bit, and wait for the intensity to pass?

Sunday September 11th

Aries Moon conjunct Jupiter @ 5 degrees

Aries Moon opposite Libra Mercury RX @ 8 degrees

Active and fiery Aries Moon does some initiatory work today, it’s as if we were reborn after yesterday's confusion, and now we’re ready to leap into the future.

Not so fast, young upstart! While you’re driven by inspiration and purpose (Jupiter,) there’s something going on in your relationships, perhaps to do with fairness and justice, that you need to parse out (Mercury) Is that a hangover from yesterday, or a continuation of the themes building up to this retrograde? What’s your Aries/ Libra axis all about?


Since it’s Aries Moon, let’s watch our kneejerk reactions and tendencies; our inner child might feel very reactive today, but let’s try to dig deep for our compassionate mind, our ability to forgive, and our higher self. A good day to go for a run, or a fast walk, or do yoga with a pout. Use your physical body as a channel for this energy, and it will burn off, at least in the short term. In the longer term, you're working something out. Happy retrograde, loves.
