Things Intensify — Forecast for Sept. 21st – 27th


This week’s headline items: Monday is the best time to start taking action on our New Moon intentions, while on Tuesday, Saturn’s and Pluto’s Station intensify, and the Sun changes signs from Virgo to Libra (marking the Fall Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere) and squaring the degree of the Solar Eclipse that we had back on June 21st. On Wednesday, Mercury enters its pre-Shadow phase in the early evening and the first Quarter Moon in Capricorn becomes exact in the late evening; on Sunday, Mercury changes signs from Libra to Scorpio, and the Mars Station finally comes to an end.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday afternoon (for a little over one hour), Wednesday afternoon (for almost 6 hours), and Friday night (for 2.5 hours).


Before we get to this week’s forecast, I’d like to mention:

Since Mercury’s Shadow phase begins this week on Wednesday late afternoon/early evening, I recommend that you take notice or journal on some of the things that come up in your relationships between Sept. 22nd and October 13th. We will also cover the Mercy Retrograde (that is coming up in October) in our next Forecasting Forum (live on Oct. 4th). To get more info or to register now: click here.

Now, this week’s Forecast…


Monday, Sept. 21st:

Monday, the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio until 3:32pm EDT. We feel things deeply and have “X-Ray Vision” and “Bullshit-Smelling Abilities” 😉

Emotional authenticity is extremely important to us at this time; anything less than 100% emotional honesty could be perceived as flat-out dishonest. Once we feel safe trusting someone, we want to merge with them, preferably forever… as long as our trust is never betrayed.

The Moon in Scorpio urges us to uncover our own power. This occurs by a process of subtraction — it urges us to let go of whatever disempowers us. It’s therefore an excellent time to look at “old” fears, limiting habits or emotional attachments, especially those stemming from past traumas.

Moon in Scorpio tends to run right over ambiguity — it’s “in or out”, “with us or against us”, “love me or leave me”. It can therefore be stormy — a cold winter storm, or a torrid tropical storm of passion, depending on how we “work” the energies 🙂

Manipulation and paranoia are the lower vibrations of this aspect, so as best you can, be straightforward — act in good faith and assume it in others. Best of all, be truly present to the fluctuations of your feelings — no matter if they’re “polite” or “timely”. Feelings aren’t facts, but they are information — and heeding them will help you embrace all of who you are.

Know thyself — and love thyself — you shall be set free. Remember: Love connects us to the Power within; Fear causes “Force” to show up — and that’s ultimately what disempowers us and others.

Monday before 2:13pm EDT or after 3:32pm EDT, it’s time to start taking actions on our New Moon intentions: if you set Intentions last  week after the New Moon became exact, today (Monday) will be the best time to take relevant actions.

If you wrote your intentions down, go back and take another look at what came through intuitively. If you didn’t write anything down, get quiet for a moment and check in with yourself: What actions are calling to me?

Monday at 2:13pm EDT, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over one hour until 3:32pm EDT. This intuitive time provides an opportunity to look at your ability to go deeper within your intimate relationships and financial partnerships; it’s also a good time to get in touch with your power to transform old behaviors and fears, and bring those abilities to your long-term commitments.

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 Sunday late afternoon ahead of time.

Monday at 3:32pm EDT, the Moon moves into optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius, where it will journey until Sept. 23rd. We’re strongly motivated to explore and learn. We’re not likely to be big fans of routine — diversity and new adventures work best at this time — we’re also physically restless and need to burn that off with activity and physical exercise.

We tend to feel more open, optimistic and inspired — but we also have a high degree of independence, which means we’d rather inspire others to do things our way, than take orders. Inspiring others could come easier than normal, as we can see the bigger picture, leaving us confident that others will agree with us, once they see what we see.

As best as you can, speak your truth without assuming that everyone is on the same page as you. Improvisation works well for us at this time, as we are spontaneous and love living on the edge — just watch out you aren’t overdoing or overstating things.

Monday late evening, a somewhat challenging Venus/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 9:12pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from Sunday late evening (Sept. 20th) on, it will remain strong until Tuesday late evening. This aspect operates more on an internal level. We feel uneasy about something, almost awkward — and we need to make a choice. An inner awareness needs to be developed in order to see what needs adjusting.

This aspect marks a fork in the road: Will we step onto a path of creative self-expression and joyful interaction? Or will we take the path that leads to a larger understanding around social structures and of our perspectives and attitudes around long-term goals and achievements?

Either way, we can develop a new perspective on how to approach these issues in our life. Awareness is key with this aspect: What is needed? How can we serve the broader view?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 16-19 degrees of Leo or Capricorn? If so, you will…
