Discernment (or Careful Evaluation) — Forecast Sept. 14 – 20


This week’s headline items: Mars, Jupiter & Pluto are still exalted/stationing all week, and Saturn’s Station phase begins on Monday — it will be slowing down, getting ready to end its 4.5-month Retrograde phase — while on Thursday morning, the SuperMoon/New Moon in Virgo becomes exact. There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday late morning (for almost 3.5 hours), Thursday morning (a little over 7 hours) and Saturday late morning (a little over 4 hours).


Now, this week’s Forecast…


Monday, Sept. 14th:

Monday, the Moon remains in fun-loving and attention-loving Leo all day. It will journey there until Tuesday afternoon. We may lack objectivity and struggle with backing down or compromising.

We all love to be admired — or at the very least acknowledged — for our greatness 🙂 So hand out some compliments — let people know how proud you are of them, tell them how much you love them. Come from the heart with this and all other things… be honest, authentic.

Fun, games and romance are a big part of this energy as well. You might also enjoy spending time with little ones. If there are no “outer children” around, how about getting in touch with your “inner child” — it’s definitely easier for the next two days. What are you most grateful for today? What would be heaps and heaps of fun? What would be so much fun, you let out a tiny squeak, just thinking of it?

Monday evening, a harmonious Sun/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 7:09pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from this last week Friday evening (Sept. 11th) on, it will remain strong until this Thursday evening. This aspect brings a sense of focus and empowerment to our long-term goals. We have the ability to look at everything in a very down-to-earth manner right now; through our understanding of “what works and what doesn’t”, we can make more powerful choices.

We can also deepen our understanding of our own motivations and look closely at where we are heading. This aspect also brings an intensity and a depth to our conscious awareness; therefore this is also a great time to transform our lives, stripping away anything — even people — that no longer connect with who we are.

Ask yourself: How can I live more authentically? Is there anything holding me back? What fears and attachments could I release now, that no longer serve my evolution? Would I be willing to let them go, just for now, and just as best as I can?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 19-26 degrees of Virgo, Capricorn or Taurus? If so, you will be even more blessed by this aspect than those who do not; this is also true for those of us with our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Scorpio (the Sun being the ruler of Leo; Pluto rules Scorpio).

Also Monday, Saturn’s Station phase begins (in 25.5º of Capricorn); it will be slowing down, getting ready to end its 4.5-month Retrograde phase. “Stationing” is when a planet moves more slowly through the sky. When a planet stations, its energy becomes more “exalted”; in the case of Saturn, this means we all feel the need to more fully face what is currently so, our actual reality.

Saturn has to do with doing what needs to be done — so we can fully understand the practical implications of our reality, and the consequences of our past actions. Saturn also represents our structures, responsibilities, commitments and ability to “do” life, on life’s terms.

As spirit beings in a physical world, it’s best to observe the laws of the physical world. The sooner we learn to “play by the rules”, the easier life gets. Saturn also represents time and the “domain” of time: growing up, maturing, understanding our limitations, setting healthy boundaries with others, living with integrity, being authentic and truthful, being serious and focused on building something of value to society.

Saturn is our teacher. If you had a cosmic teacher, what would your personal “earth class” be in, right now? Where are you asked to look at your current “earth structures” and become more mature? Which long-term goal calls out for commitment? What will time do?

As best as you can during the time of the station, bring flexibility and open-mindedness to any frustrations. The station-phase will last until Oct. 14th; and Saturn goes direct — after having been retrograde for 4.5-month — on Sept. 29th in almost 25.5 degrees of Capricorn.

We are getting ready to move forward on some important long-term goals, but we’ll need to be patient until Saturn goes direct on Sept. 29th. Until then, as best as you can, realistically evaluate what’s needed in order to build some healthy, long-lasting foundations for the next phase in your life.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 12-16 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, or Libra? If so, you will…
