Originality & Innovation


This week’s headline items: On Monday afternoon, Mercury enters its pre-shadow phase in Libra, and in the evening, the New Moon in Virgo becomes exact; Venus changes signs from Libra to Scorpio on Friday late afternoon; from Saturday late morning on, it’s time to start taking actions on our New Moon intentions; and on Sunday early morning, the Sun squares the degree of June 10th’s Solar Eclipse.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday afternoon (for almost 8 hours); Thursday night/Friday very early morning (for a little over 1 hour); and Sunday very early morning (for 3 hours).


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

As most of you already know from last week’s blog, Monday, Sept. 6th around 4pm EDT, Mercury enters its pre-Shadow phase when it reaches 10º 08’ of Libra. This is 3 weeks prior to its Retrograde phase (which starts on Sept 27th).

Use these three weeks wisely! Prepare for Mercury’s pre-Shadow phase in Libra… last chance to watch: “Mercury’s pre-Shadow phase Sept. 2021 — to see how this relates to your own Birth Chart… and it is currently on SALE!

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, September 6th:

Monday is a big day!!! The Moon remains in detail-oriented, practical Virgo all day. It will journey there until Tuesday late evening.

Monday morning, a harmonious Mars/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 8:20am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Wednesday evening (Sept. 1st) on; and it will remain strong until this Friday evening (Sept. 10th). This aspect brings a powerful ability to pursue and accomplish our objectives. We are able to see more clearly where we are heading and where we want to commit.

Our vitality and energy levels are at a high point. We are most likely feeling ambitious and dynamic right now. Our recuperative powers are excellent and our health is robust. We might feel inspired to build up our physical strength during this astrological influence, and this is a good idea — we can develop greater endurance and vitality now, which will rejuvenate our body.

This is definitely a strong energy for steady, practical, down-to-earth work on a project. It is also quite a sexy combination. As best as you can, leverage this powerful mixture of energies to go after the things you have been wanting for a while now… and as Pluto is involved, use it all to fulfill on your Soul’s purpose.

Anything that we feel deeply passionate about and that feels in complete alignment with our deepest core, is very likely part of our Soul’s journey. What moves you? What turns you on? Not just on a physical level but also on an emotional and spiritual level? If you had all the resources that you needed, what might you choose to manifest?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 21-28 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 Aries or Scorpio (Mars being the ruler of Aries; Pluto rules Scorpio)

Also on Monday morning, a harmonious Venus/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 9:05am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Friday evening (Sept. 3rd) on; and it will remain strong until this Wednesday (Sept. 8th)This aspect brings a good dose of optimism, faith and a sense of the “bigger picture” to our relationships and finances.

We tend to relate to others in a positive (even inspiring) manner; as you can imagine, it is thus much easier to make social contacts. This could also be a lazy and self-indulgent time 🙂

Our outlook is cheerful and hopeful, the atmosphere cooperative. Integrity and loyalty are favored; it’s a great time for winning people’s trust.  We are more open and trusting with friends, partners and collaborators. We might feel an urge to connect to people from other countries or foreign cultures, just to have an adventure, or widen our horizons.

Ask yourself: What opportunities are opening up to me at this time? What connections might bring about expansion? What if I asked “who” as well as “how”?

Financially, there might be a tendency to spend more than usual, as we feel confident that an abundance of resources is available to us.

There are indeed plenty of opportunities to be had, financial and otherwise, especially in connection with collaborative projects, community projects, political endeavors, or endeavors that require justice or a just cause 😉

The thing to watch out for is the feeling that we don’t have to actually do anything to “cash in”

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following: 22-28 degrees of  Libra, Aquarius or Gemini? If so, you will be most blessed by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Sagittarius (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius).

Monday evening, at 8:52pm EDTthe Moon aligns with the Sun in 14.5 degrees of Virgo, marking the beginning of a new Moon cycle. We started to feel the effects of this New Moon the moment the Moon entered Virgo on Sunday evening (Sept. 5th). Feel free to watch my New Moon video on the subject.

This New Moon has an abundance of planets in Earth & Air signs: the Moon, the Sun, and Mars in Virgo, Pluto in Capricorn, and Uranus in Taurus (all planets in Earth Signs) and then Mercury and Venus in Libra, Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius, and the North Node in Gemini (Air Signs).

The element of Earth deals with the physical reality of things and usually requires a practical approach. The Air element deals with the mental level; usually we have the ability to look at what’s ideal and how we might create it through connection with others. This means that our focus will be on those things for the next four weeks — on both the individual and collective levels.

I will talk more about this in connection with the planetary aspects of this New Moon chart, but first let’s look at the Virgo energy of this New Moon:

Virgo provides an opportunity to learn about being of service — and what it might mean to strengthen our focus on improving our daily routines — getting organized, for example — and taking care of health matters.

A great way to step into the higher vibrations of Virgo: recognize, as best as you can, that humility, self-improvement, and being of service bring you closer to your inner divinity and your Soul’s path.

Ask yourself: How could I, as a Spirit-being, operate more efficiently in the physical world? Might tweaking my daily routines help me function better in the physical world? Might that also support me in being of service? What benefits might I reap if I could better discern between the essential and the redundant?

This New Moon cycle will thus be a great time to begin… To read the whole article and get all the Coaching Questions for this month’s New Moon, click here.

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 12-17 degrees of Virgo, Pisces, Gemini or Sagittarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. Intentions are best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.

So this month, the best and most potent time to set intentions would be between 8:52pm Monday evening (Sept. 6th) and 3:24pm Tuesday afternoon (Sept. 7th); and then again from 11:20pm on Sept. 7th until 8:52pm on Wednesday, Sept. 8th (New York-time).

Monday late evening, a harmonious Sun/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 9:29pm EDT.  We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Friday evening (Sept. 3rd) on; and it will remain strong until this Thursday evening (Sept. 9th). This aspect connects us to a strong energy field — physical and metaphysical.

We feel alive, want to create a better future for ourselves and others on a very practical level, and are excited to do it. Watch out for messages from the Universe 🙂

Originality and innovation come easy to us, as does connection with like-minded people. We can celebrate (and leverage) our idealism and unorthodox approaches to life’s challenges. Ask yourself: What if I expressed what I uniquely valued without apologies? What if I did it with authenticity and enthusiasm?

How might sudden ideas spark activities that feel in alignment with my personal values? And, looking at things from a different angle: What might be possible on a practical level with a bigger network of like-minded people?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (MC) or personal planets in 11-18 degrees of  Virgo, Taurus, or Capricorn? If so, you will feel more blessed by this planetary connection than otherwise. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aquarius or Leo (the Sun rules Leo; Uranus rules Aquarius).

Also on Monday late evening, a somewhat challenging Mars/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 11:50pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from Sunday late evening (Sept. 5th) on; and it will remain strong until Tuesday late evening. We feel uneasy about something, sort of awkward — and we need to make adjustments  — first though, we must develop an inner awareness of what exactly needs adjusting.

We come to realize that we might have become overly enthusiastic and optimistic. What’s more, our drive for a collective cause is actually leaving us feeling drained and frustrated, while at the same time, we harbor a strong desire to improve our daily health regimes and the data that supports those improved routines.

It will help us manage both these energies if we look more closely at how we use our own energy: simply put, are we in tune with our physical body? Are we making healthy decisions?

Ask yourself: Could I connect and collaborate with my communities and still find time to improve my own health or work routines?

Am I being too impulsive or impatient? Restless? What might it look like if I focused my energies towards being of Service?

It’s also worthwhile to examine how our personal belief systems impact our communities and networks or vice versa. Can we stay open to new philosophies that are held collectively — and to what they offer us? And perhaps also toward our desire to further expand our visions for humanity?

Ignoring conflict will not serve us now, nor will being overly analytical or critical of ourselves or others; as best as you can, slow down and stay tuned in to your physical body.

Ask yourself: Is doing more, necessarily better? How might “doing too much” impact my well-being? Where might I be bringing an attitude that doesn’t serve my physical and mental well-being? (A good place to “aim” this question is toward the “collective bigger picture”)

Here’s another question you may find helpful: If I check against my direct experience, how do collective assumptions or “stories” impact my physical and mental well-being?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 24-26 degrees of Virgo or Aquarius? Do you have an Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries or Sagittarius? If so, you will be…
