Freedom and Individuality — Forecast for Sept. 10th – 16th


This week’s headline items: Mars reenters Aquarius on Monday evening. There is still time to set our New Moon Intentions for most of Monday, and on Tuesday before 2pm EDT. Jupiter squares the Solar Eclipse degree of Aug.11th on Tuesday early morning. Saturn’s Station phase ends on Thursday, while Mars’ ends on Friday and Pluto’s begins on Sunday. The First Quarter Moon in Sagittarius becomes exact on Sunday evening.

There will be four Moon VoC phases this week: Monday late morning (for 8 minutes), Tuesday evening (for a little over 19 hours), Friday early morning (for almost 16 hours), and Sunday evening (for almost 12 hours).

Monday (Sept. 10th): the Moon remains in detail-oriented, practical Virgo until 11:20am EDT; turning our focus toward the practical and wholesome. We are generous with our time/services and we love to help others. We also have a fondness for science and anything that makes sense in our world — things and knowledge we can apply and use.

Health might come also into focus at this time. We notice the parts that make up the whole; this is a great time to see if our daily routines (eating, work, self-care, etc.) align with our long-term goals.

Monday early morning, a somewhat challenging Venus/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 5:16am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Saturday evening on (Sept.8th), it will remain strong until this Tuesday evening. This aspect operates more on an internal level. We may feel uneasy or insecure in our relationships — and be faced with a choice — we must develop an inner awareness if we are to see what needs adjusting.

As you can imagine, this could make social interactions somewhat awkward; as best as you can, connect with kindness towards all (including yourself 🙂

We may also have a hard time making financial decisions that feel satisfactory. As best as you can, bring a good dose of compassion and understanding to yourself and embrace your own humanity as much as possible… and remember: like everything else, this is only temporary 😉

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 0-2 degrees of Scorpio, Aries, or 29 degrees of Libra or Pisces? Or perhaps your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus or Libra (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra)? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect.

Monday at 11:12am EDT, we enter a brief Moon Void of Course (VoC), that last for 8 minutes, until 11:20am EDT. Use this intuitive time to take small steps on projects already underway — or simply take a break and do a set of Sun Salutations or push-ups 😉

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday late morning ahead of time.

Also on Monday, before 11:12am, and after 11:20am EDT, you still have time to set your New Moon Intentions for this month — if you haven’t already done so on Sunday afternoon or evening. If possible, align them with the New Moon energies that I spoke about in my video — feel free to watch it again if you are not sure anymore — click here to watch my video on the New Moon 😉

Monday at 11:20am EDT, the Moon moves into relationship-oriented, harmony-seeking Libra, where it will journey until Wednesday afternoon. The energy of the Libra Moon helps us be naturally courteous and diplomatic; we are more polite at this time, as we seek the approval of others.

We very much want to maintain equal, fair relationships at this time and are therefore open to making compromises and negotiating. These next two days are a great time for mediation — but our need for peace and accompanying aversion to direct conflict could pull us to “yes” more easily than we might like.

We may also be able to see both sides of the equation so well that we can’t make decisions. As best as you can, find an inner balance with this and communicate what needs to be said with grace and charm — even if it’s “No” 😉 One last quick note: this is also a great time for anything to do with visual arts.

Monday at 8:56pm EDT, Mars reenters freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius – due to its retrograde motion this summer, it already spent some time in that sign between May 16th and August 12th.  This time it will remain in Aquarius until Nov. 15th. Think back to the time Mars spent in Aquarius earlier this year: What projects have been waiting to move forward? What actions call to you now?

When Mars travels through Aquarius, we enjoy surprising ourselves and others. The tried-and-true methods of getting things done are far too boring for us right now. We are looking for unique and original goals, and we tend to take a more original, forward-thinking view of the world now. What if, when you were least expecting it, you suddenly asked yourself “How could I surprise the “old me” today?”  😉

Mental and intellectual pursuits are important to us now. The Aquarian ideal of equality is strong with this position, so we also place a lot of value in freedom and individuality — our own and that of others. With Mars in this fixed sign, we will definitely need our independence, especially in personal relationships — and we are not easily pushed around. It’s best to give ourselves and others lots of space; if we feel boxed in, we may rebel or act contrary.

In general, we may feel a desire to push our agenda on others — not in an aggressive way, though… more in a creative manner. As best as you can, bring a sense of openness to your approach to people and situations. Be aware of feeling superior to others: if you find yourself thinking that someone is less “special” than you, put your hand over your heart and ask “what would my heart say to this?”

If you have an Aries Sun-sign or Rising-sign, you are going to feel…
