In the Stars for August
The transiting Sun is moving through the fixed fire sign, Leo. This energy can be fun and easy or we get a mixed authoritative energy brewing. As the planets, Mercury and Venus in Leo form a square to Mars Uranus and the dubious North Node moving in fixed Taurus these aspects make for difficult energies like tension, anger, anarchic and rebellious upheavals this early part of August challenges us and so changes are not easy this month.
Sun in Leo people are busy, creative, and full of energy and they like to show off their gifts and talents including ruling others. They can make strong leaders, visionaries, and actors, who seek power and the limelight. They build pride in themselves and try to live up to their reputation. They can be generous or demeaning stubborn and opinionated. They work hard, exert authority, and can be flamboyant, ardent lovers who can be vain but also warm-hearted. Happy Birthday Leo, this will be a significant year for most Leos, as the aspects from Jupiter, Uranus, and Saturn have been nudging you to change and move forward, grow and make the changes.
The Planetary Aspects for August
The planetary lineup is: Sun in Leo/Virgo, Mercury, Leo/Virgo, Venus Cancer/Leo, Mars Taurus/Gemini, Jupiter Aries, Saturn Aquarius, Uranus Taurus, Neptune Pisces, and Pluto Capricorn
First week 1-7, the first week of August is slow and tense as the energy builds around the fixed signs Leo and Taurus with Sun and Mercury squaring Mars, Uranus, and the North Node in stubborn Taurus. Mars in Taurus squares Saturn in Aquarius adding more friction to this first week where you may make tough decisions around security and reforms. Perhaps more mixed news about the recession emerges in the news. Mercury shifts into the practical earth sign Virgo for more flexibility and fast analysis to organize your work. The first Quarter Moon in the intense water sign Scorpio forms trines to both Venus and Neptune softening the energy for this weekend as Venus in Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces on Sunday, Aug. 7th good artistic or imaginative work and a mellow day to enjoy.
Second week 8-14, Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn, this can represent challenges for relationships, and tempers may flare. On Tues. Mercury and Jupiter in conjunction cause friction around networking, and plans and things are hard to push forward, Full Moon on Aug. 11th in the fixed air sign Aquarius can help us with our analysis of the group vs the individual. Try to adopt a sophisticated attitude toward relationships as Venus moves into the fire sign Leo adding energy to the detached view that this full moon can encourage. This is a good time to reflect on reforms and groups that create order in society. The intense energy dissipates on Saturday and Sunday while the moon moves through the impressionistic water sign Pisces, compassion, and sympathy are the trademarks of this sign. However, the Sun in Leo opposes old father Saturn in Aquarius on Sunday – this opposition will highlight conflicts with authority, a difficult aspect for the fixed Sun signs Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. Generally, we may all feel a lack of vitality so try to rest and recuperate.
Third week 15-21, Mercury in Virgo trines Uranus in Taurus a good aspect for resourcefulness, witty communications, and ingenious ideas. This aspect can bring in some conflict between the ego-driven Sun in Leo and transcendental Neptune in Pisces clouding up one’s ambitions. Thursday brings in the Last Quarter Moon in the materialistic earth sign Taurus. This can be a good time to finish up projects, evaluate the plans look to see what is growing productively, and then decide what to keep. Venus in Leo trines Jupiter in Aries this is good for the expansion of relationships, networking, and creating inventive plans. This being a good luck aspect can help your wealth grow. This is a positive aspect for Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius natives. Friday morning can be rough for some as the Sun in Leo in conjuncts reformist Pluto in Capricorn controls can seem to slip away. Mars enters the strategic air sign Gemini bringing in quick and fast energy to the planetary mix by picking up Mercury’s agenda and Virgo’s analytical plans and towards achieving them, this is a good aspect for air signs Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, and the earth Virgo. Mercury in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces this aspect can be confusing and bewildering for us on Sunday
Fourth week 22-31, the transiting Sun enters the practical earth sign Virgo and shifts the energy to dryer cooler temperatures that are on their way as the summer will come to a close in mid-September. Traditionally this can be a good time to harvest plants and clean up the gardens for the next 4 weeks of growth. Uranus in the earth sign Taurus goes retrograde until January 2023. This transit adds more pressure for the need for reform and a reassessment of material resources and their usefulness globally. Some Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius natives may experience sudden shifts and changes under this station retrograde. Mercury goes into the air sign Libra to help bring harmony and balance to communications. The New Moon awakens us for a new lunar cycle with practical energies in Virgo. This can initiate a time of fastidious action for the earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. Venus in Leo squares Uranus in Taurus is shifting relationship statuses for some may adjust as people may adopt unconventional attitudes regarding relationships and money. Venus opposes Saturn reminding us of obstacles, and restrictions within relationships, especially those limits to relating caused by the ongoing pandemic. Tuesday, Aug. 30th may be a difficult day as the Sun in Virgo in conjuncts Jupiter in Aries, perhaps plans can’t seem to grow or move forward, and we may feel thwarted in our efforts, but this will pass Venus also inconjuncts Neptune in Pisces on Wednesday stressing our relations with dubious ideas that challenging our sanity. In summary, August seems to be a challenging month urging us to change for the better.
And those are the planetary aspects for this month.
Peace and Blessings
In the Stars for July
The transiting Sun is in the water sign Cancer, Happy summer solstice everyone. Cancer is also the Sun sign of our nation’s birth coming up on July 4th, which marks the 246 birthday of our democracy. It is an ongoing challenge for fairness and justice in this developing democracy as we see currently, the challenges to the autocratic rulers and structure will continue. Our values and laws are challenged with Pluto’s return in Capricorn to the USA chart in the second house which signifies family values. And Cancer Sun signs are very protective of family and patriotic towards the welfare of the country here and abroad. However imperfect we are at it, the effort continues, Happy 4th of July!
Cancer sign Sun people are sunny caring people who will protect family and friends. That is why the symbol is the crab which works hard sidestepping danger to protect its inner vulnerable self. They can be secretive but only to protect others from being hurt, so sometimes they wear a mask. They can clam up being defensive when they are not sure of their feelings. Cancer is an intuitive water sign that gives and needs nurturance from their friends and mates. They are warm and affectionate and at times self-sacrificing. They are tenacious and can be imaginative since the Moon rules this water sign. Intuition, inspiration, and creativity are natural to most. Some may currently have dreams and visionary inspirations while Neptune trines their Sun. Jupiter’s transit through Aries throws a challenging square to your Sun for those born mid-June. The next few months will helps you get on with the things you want or need to change, it is a good time for growth.
The Planetary Aspects for July
Mercury is moving direct through its own sign Gemini, and then will move quickly through the emotional water sign Cancer, this aspect can cause a lot of emotionally motivated challenges to our rationale but is good for intuitive or artistic pursuits. It will shift July 20th into the fire sign, Leo, for the rest of July lifting and increasing the intellectual debates, stepping up creative ideas towards a new direction in leadership around the 12th of July. But watch out for individual arrogance during this time as our viewpoints are likely to be self-centered.
Venus planet of love and relationship values moves through friendly witty Gemini which can keep us light-hearted about our friendships while encouraging communications. Then it shifts into the emotional water sign Cancer around July 19th. This can bring up sentimental feelings and values however Mars, Venus’s consort, the god of war, energy, and action, will be moving through the slow practical earth sign Taurus for most of July stirring up the materialistic values for most. A strong restlessness can influence us in the last weeks of July as Mars joins with rebellious Uranus around July 27th. So be aware of your energy, as this can make some folks accident-prone, and rebellious about money, values, and the economy as Taurus rules financial security and materialism. Taurus energy seeks to secure things and derive safety and comfort from the things that are owned. We may yet see more changes and innovations with currencies.
Jupiter in the fire sign Aries has been expanding our energy and charging up our aggression around our values in our homeland as it squares into itself in the natal USA chart and to transiting Venus in Cancer. This energy promotes new challenges to our spiritual, philosophical, and moral religious expressions within partnerships and commitments as natal Jupiter is squared by transiting Jupiter in Aries. Jupiter rules law and children and in Aries, this can create new inventions, a time to expand personal opportunities for most. The cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn benefit from Jupiter’s aspects this month for those born early in their Sun sign’s 1-10 degrees decan.
Saturn the planet of karma and restrictions continues to move through Aquarius which it co-rules with Uranus, bringing up the need to reform our collective’s progressive goals. Saturn can bring the lesson of learning the hard way through the imposition of punitive laws for women’s rights in this country now since the USA‘s Moon is in Aquarius. This aspect can be difficult for the fixed signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius sun signs. Yet it signals a time to mature and allow the deep changes to come from within yourself while Saturn and Uranus square one another.
Neptune in Pisces influences people whose Sun sign is in Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. This planet stirs up our imagination to the point of delusions or higher spiritual levels as we can witness false gods among some as Neptune can blur the line between illusion and reality. Neptune in Pisces retrograde is opposing the USA’s Neptune in Virgo in the house of higher law, philosophy, and education. There is a review and evolution and evaluation taking place in the higher levels of Law.
Pluto in Capricorn continues to bring about rebellion and usurping of governmental use or abuse of power and control. The cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn Sun signs are challenged by this transit. We reap what we sow as a nation during the next 6 months.

|Sun in Taurus/Gemini, Mercury, and Pluto retrograde, Full Moon Lunar Eclipse|
|In the Stars for May|
The Sun is moving through the practical earth sign Taurus. This feels like sluggish, slow-moving energy as Taurus can be comfort-seeking, lackadaisical tending to do practical things that matter the most like tending to gardens, fixing things, and do enjoy the flowers blooming this season. The weather patterns are somewhat odd and choppy with strong winds as the Sun conjoins Uranus which seems to be creating some of the tension in the air, this first week of May we may see more intense weather patterns as the earth is constantly shifting and adjusting itself throughout this year expect an intensification.
Taurus natives are responsible reliable individuals who seek status, material comforts, and pleasure. They make practical decisions and are likely to be slow at times as they chew on their options, so to speak. They attract their opposite Scorpio for intense contrasting personal exchanges. They are purposeful and can withstand difficulties by persevering. They can be stubborn and stick to their plans and are determined and conservative in attitude. Their challenge in life is to be flexible and trusting of others however they prefer to seek material security. Taurus rules finances which they like to accumulate and possess wealth. In love, they can be passionate, loyal, and yet jealous and possessive as is their opposite sign Scorpio. Most are warmhearted and popular with many friends with whom they share their bounty. They can be creative with projects and work well with their hands, like flower arranging, cooking, and gardening. Some are theatrical, talented with beautiful voices and a flair for the arts. In general, they have fine taste in décor as they reach for the best of everything. Happy Birthday, Taurus, move with the challenges and changes brought on by the Saturn Uranus aspect to your Sun. Some of you may want to re-direct your path this year.
The Planetary Aspect for May
Mercury will be in apparent retrograde from May 10th until June 3rd, trekking through the witty air sign Gemini which it rules; this can be a good time for air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius individuals this month. Mercury (the trickster) is all about communications, networks, and how things connect to one another so when it moves apparent retrograde things can break down, contracts are difficult to sign, and it can cause delays and changes with schedules. However, this can be a good time to finish projects. Pace yourselves and be conscientious because things can go awry sometimes. Pluto in the last degrees of Capricorn also turned retrograde so we are in the shift of energies this first week of May. There may be continued upheavals in governments, money, and finances as we move through the next 5 months while Pluto planet of transformation is now retrograde- secrets are revealed.

Mars planet of action and strategies will join with imagistic Neptune on May 15th-24th this conjunction signifies physical and spiritual energies blending to help us evolve but the energy may feel sluggish for this mid-week, any inner work that involves creativity and imagination is best during this time. In general, be aware of the deceptive media that floods the internet during Neptune’s passage through Pisces until April of 2025 when it starts to move through the fire sign, Aries. This transit has caused much of the confusion that people believe to be facts. This passage is as if we cannot tell the truth from the lie.

|In the Stars for February 2022|
This New Moon in Aquarius on Tuesday, Feb. 4th kicks off the year of the Tiger, it is a water element sign and will help with the predatory nature of this majestic animal adding a spirit of compassion and sensitivity to our ambitions, perhaps it will help those nations involved in the present struggles and saber-rattling around the globe.
Aquarius Sun sign people are helpful, progressive, and humanitarians who want to reform the world. Aquarius ruled by Saturn and Uranus represents progressive actions. Aquarians like to help others, they are a friend to all and are inventive people. They want to invent reforms, gadgets, and ideals to help their fellow man or community. They can be paradoxical as they are friendly, progressive, conservative, and fixed in their opinions. They are genuinely interested in others but are friendly yet in an impersonal detached way. Aquarius symbol is the water bearer but it’s really pouring energy waves because its co-ruler Uranus represents waves, quantum physics, and all technological inventions that harness energy. Happy Birthday Aquarius Saturn and Uranus continue to aspect your Sun ushering in changes, wake up calls to those stuck in a pattern for progressive growth to follow this year.
The Planetary Aspects for February
The transiting Sun is moving through the humanitarian air sign Aquarius. This air sign lifts up our spirits out of the pessimistic practical energy of Capricorn that we are now leaving behind. The lessons we gathered as Venus and Mercury were retrograde may be apparent now as these planets move forward which is why everything feels slow and sluggish; that is life with limitations to put bluntly. It is winter so what are we to expect but to do the internal work the season is good for. However, as these inner planets Mercury and Venus turn direct motion and pick up speed this first week of February and join with Mars planet of action, also transiting through Capricorn the energy can pick up and we can move forward with our ambitions around Saturday, Feb. 5th.
Jupiter is now moving through its sign of dignity the water sign Pisces is a welcome change. This transit will stir up our passions, emotions, imagination, and compassion for the welfare of others at its best. However, it can increase the level of illusions people are hooked into these days especially all the false narratives as people who are vulnerable can be victimized by all types of escapist cults. Jupiter will conjoin Neptune the ruler of Pisces in April. An increase in the earth changes can be signaled by the Jupiter and Neptune conjunction more so in April. Also, we can be more susceptible to viruses around the planet perhaps due to the increase in the earth changes primarily water type disturbances.
Saturn in Aquarius continues to form a square pattern with Uranus in Taurus now moving direct motion. Uranus wants to change the security structures and Saturn wants to reform them. This aspect can affect the economic markets, for instance, with nations feeling threatened by others who are seeking to further their economies like China and Russia by disrupting and challenging the minor nations. The old war-making strategies to further one’s resources are at hand here. Perhaps other nations will continue to band together to help reform and renegotiate the distribution of resources and promote how we can share them that may be the best way to use this Saturn/Uranus square. For individual horoscopes look at the houses triggered in your own chart where Taurus and Aquarius are located that is where the tension will occur in the affairs of these houses. For instance, the 10th and 7th houses would engage us in career and changes with partnerships. This square is challenging to Taurus and Aquarius sun signs.
Pluto continues its trek through Capricorn bringing in those challenges to Capricorn sun signs and promoting life changes to Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn sun signs. Pluto in Capricorn has been conjoining with the USA natal chart’s Pluto in Capricorn for a few years it will continue to impress upon our consciousness the need for governmental reforms.

In the Stars for January 2022
Happy New Year! A new cycle begins and the numerology for this year is the number 6 frequency which signifies family, security, harmony, sympathy, responsibility, truth, humanitarian concerns, traditions, order, routine conventions, and emotional balance. The world may come under more challenges due to earth changes and the pandemic but we may strive to create a more responsible economy and ecology under the 6 vibrations. Perhaps we will have cooperation and agreements with other nations around issues of global concern. For this year 2022 expect more of the same but perhaps getting better. Hopefully, we are growing in maturity as a collective, and Jupiter in Pisces can help inspire us to be sensitive, engaged, and compassionate.
Capricorn natives are serious practical souls here to learn from the lesson that Saturn informs us to be responsible and mature individuals. Capricorn natives take their life lessons seriously often times being workaholics who eventually learn how to play in their older years. Capricorn likes to organize, control, and take on the burdens of others much to their disappointment. They seek status and are ambitious people who work hard to get to the top of the ladder they are climbing. They are conscientious and will better themselves through discipline and by overcoming fear of limitations. Saturn, the planet of time and limitation, exerts an inner pressure on Capricorn to accomplish worthwhile achievements. This gives them a sense of timing in all their pursuits. They may be thrifty and conservative always saving up for a rainy day. Most Capricorns work on their self-confidence through the pursuit of self-mastery.. They are loyal friends and can be cautious with regard to marriage. Happy Birthday, Capricorn most of you have gone through all the difficult Saturn and Pluto aspects and should start to feel a great sense of relief as 2022 roles in.
Planetary Transits for January
The transiting Sun in the practical conservative earth sign Capricorn can help with organizing practical and ambitious structures to replace whatever needs to be changed. On January 21 the Sun starts its transit through the humanitarian air sign Aquarius. This will lift us up to a more positive outlook.
Mercury planet of communications turns retrograde on Jan. 14th in the erratic air sign Aquarius, then direct in Capricorn again on Feb. 4th. This can signify a time to restructure plans and projects that are already started. Schedules can change, be flexible and review contracts carefully but if you can wait until the retrograde ends to sign and make sure you got all the details correct. Usually, if things like computers are affected and or break down it’s because they need maintenance and usually reveal them during this time. Venus is also in Capricorn but retrograde is making for a conservative time for love relations, values, and financial spending or investing. Mars planet that represents energy moves through the exciting fire sign Sagittarius bringing in the desires for new adventures and playfulness for some Sagittarians. Mars will square Neptune in Pisces once again as it did back in Jan.2020 when the news of the pandemic began to spread; this is happening again starting Jan.10th, 2022 for about a week. It’s a time for faith in our well-being rather than to go down into the rabbit hole with drugs or delusional thinking.
Jupiter the planet of growth, wisdom, and benevolence moves into the mystical and compassionate water sign Pisces which can help us increase our compassion for all that is. It will transit through Pisces until Dec. 20th when it will shift into assertive fire sign Aries. Jupiter co-rules Pisces with Neptune and this conjunction will bring in an expansive time for our luck, spirituality, sacrifices, imagination, compassion, and sensitivity, and earth changes that involve water increasing around the globe perhaps due to the icebergs melting. Also, it could bring on an increase in the spread of the viruses around late March and through April of 2022.
Saturn continues its trek through the innovative air sign Aquarius where it is demanding that we reform our structures with innovative changes and inventions as it demonstrates to us our fears and limitations with improving our energy systems. Perhaps it can help us understand the necessity to create new solutions to the energy and resource problems around the globe especially as the earth changes continue to increase globally.
We will have sudden shifts and changes as Uranus in Taurus, a planet of erratic change moves forward on the 17th of January. This can stir up all types of challenges with rebelliousness on the increase in society.

In the Stars for December
The fall season winds down, the holidays are here as the Sun transits through the enthusiastic fire sign Sagittarius which is ruled by Jupiter brings in the good cheer until Dec. 21rst when the Winter Solstice occurs as the transiting Sun moves into serious Capricorn. But for today the holiday spirit is in the air. Sagittarius energy helps to broaden our perspectives and some of us may seek to travel literally or in our imagination. This can be a good time to have fun and learn new things from different books and media and through fantasy. Sagittarius promotes goodwill towards other cultures which stirs up the ideal to want to share through writing, speaking or journaling. During this time, we are inspired to be adventurous and outgoing. However, be cautious around crowds as the pandemic is still happening all over the world and Mars in Sagittarius will square Neptune (rules viruses) the first week of the New Year 2022. This aspect brought about the spread of the pandemic in the last week of January of 2019. So be aware of your surroundings as the virus situation will probably be here until 2023 in some form.
Sagittarius Sun sign display the attributes of being forward-thinking always looking for alternatives to what they know. Because they are ruled by expansive Jupiter they always try to look on the bright side of things. This eager positive effort can go a long way for their moral and ethical development. They aim high to fulfil their many goals but frequently they are pursuing too many at one time so they must learn to prioritize. Sometimes they need to restrain themselves and have patience developing things. They like to be physically active since Sagittarius rules the hips and they are naturally flirtatious. They make good friends and can come on strong with a sense of humour and sometimes they lack tact with their outspoken comments but all this is with sincerity and goodwill. Some prefer freedom at all costs and may marry once and in their older years. Being versatile they can be adverse to a rigid sedentary way of life. They must have love in their lives and creative challenges with their work and hobbies. Happy Birthday, Sagittarius, 2022 should be a good positive year for those born early in the sign as Jupiter moves into Pisces later this month you will feel more confident and self-expressive filled with optimism this helps to give strength to the vitality that Neptune is sapping from its square in Pisces.

This energy can put us in touch with our deeper motivations and the shadow side of our primal nature. When the Sun is moving through the Scorpio, it is the time of the year in the Northern Hemisphere when nature changes into a dormant state for the winter hibernation period. The beauty of nature is seen as it changes the colors of the leaves. We can observe the transformation as all things go back to being dust. Scorpio rules the mystery of life, death, and renewal; the cycle continues.
Scorpio Sun signs are intense individuals geared to pursue their desires fervently. They will work long and hard for their objectives those that are above board or even underhandedly.

They are a fixed water sign that means they may not change or forgive very well. They can exert tremendous energy and also have a volcanic temper. They love deeply, passionately and can be loyal to those that are close to them. They will fight for justice and fairness. They may appear reserved but can be argumentative when defending others. They can be curious and suspicious as they make great detectives. Most do like sports and athletic activities. Happy Birthday, Scorpio!

Happy Fall Season
|In the Stars for September|
September always reminds me of my childhood’s anticipation for returning to school after a hot slow summer, plus anticipating cooler weather and for the coming holidays time in the Fall.
The Sun transiting through the service-orientated practical earth sign Virgo which can help us get in the mood to pay attention to details, clean things up gardens, homes, paperwork any way we can organize our intentions like making lists of things to do. This placement can promote a critical mind lost in the details not able to see the big picture, thus encouraging criticisms rather than cooperation. Later in the month, we may see more cooperation in negotiations as the planets start to move through Libra particularly Venus and Mars will form beneficial energies to Jupiter and Saturn.
Virgo Sun signs are motivated by the purity of thought, work, ethic, dedicated effort, drive, and a sensible attitude for life. They have discriminating minds with a sense of duty as they go about fulfilling their obligations and service. They enjoy their work and find themselves working tirelessly on behave of others. They prefer to be logical and rational in their thinking and attitudes. They make thoughtful friends, happiest when they are being creative and always doing something like taking care of their garden and pets. They do pay attention to their health and diets for the most part. They are idealistic when it comes to mating preferring that special person in their life. Happy Birthday Virgo this month may be challenging or confusing for some Virgos as the Sun, Mercury, and Mars in Virgo oppose Neptune in its sign Pisces. Also, for those born early degrees in the sign Virgo, the Moon’s transiting nodes in Gemini are square to your Sun perhaps adding a push to decisions that are on your horizon.
The Planetary Aspects for September
The Sun (ego) and Mars (our drives) in Virgo stress that we focus, clean things up, helps to direct our communications and drives, while Venus planet of love and relationships in harmony seeking Libra adds a sense of rationality and justice to our values and relations. For the first two weeks of Sept., Venus in Libra starts to trine expansive Jupiter retrograde in Aquarius; perhaps may help to increase prosperity and luck for some until Sept. 11th, then Venus shifts into the intense and secretive water sign Scorpio and starts to square karmic Saturn in Aquarius. This aspect may restrict or limit our capacity for love and forgiveness, especially for our enemies it brings constraint to relationships. After the new moon on Sept. 6th, Mars in Virgo opposes transiting Neptune in Pisces. this aspect can stir up more chaos, confusion, polarization around beliefs and a sense of victimization motivates those who are highly critical now concerning health mandates and service to others. Doubt and hopelessness versus faith and belief is the theme of this aspect which challenges Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces natives until mid-month when Mars shifts into Libra which will lighten things up and we can call for fairness in action and harmony. Mars in Libra seeks peaceful negotiations as it forms a beneficial aspect to Saturn in Aquarius for the rest of the month. This aspect will add more rationality to our thoughts and may help to stabilize any difficult military or social upheavals that are occurring this month.
Saturn in Aquarius continues to square Uranus in Taurus continuing the fears tension/action drives around abundance, security, economic growth, jobs, and humanitarian programs. Things are yet to be resolved with regards to the ongoing pandemic and the insecurity people feel about the reasons for mandates.
Overall, a longer aspect affecting the USA consciousness is that transiting Neptune in Pisces continues to square Mars in Gemini in the USA natal chart and transiting Neptune opposes its natal Neptune in the 9th of values, ethics, and wisdom, we may continue to be a nation confused, frustrated and deluded by our imagination, paranoia, and susceptibility to delusions and cults. The lesson is to learn to be clear about our values, ethics, and relations if we are to pursue a democratic type of relationship with one another. We are still a young nation in the throes of learning how to be democratic and not tyrannical. This aspect is in play until Neptune moves into Aries in January 2026.
Also, Pluto planet that represents death, transformation, renewal, upheavals, and endings continues to conjoin its natal position in the USA natal chart in the second house in the earth sign, Capricorn which brings a need to change and transform our governing paradigms based on just materialism. For Capricorn Sun signs it represents a time to change or curb one’s personal egoic ambitions around power and structure in life as this is a very humbling aspect for most Capricorns.
The Lunar Cycle for September
The New Moon ushers in on Sept. 6th Labor Day in the practical earth sign Virgo. A good time to put plans into action that you want to develop this month. This analytical energy is full of insights and awakening for most aware souls. New projects and initiatives started now will come to fruition by the Full Moon on Sept.20th.
The Second Quarter Moon occurs in the enthusiastic fire sign Sagittarius on Monday 13th. This is a good time to analyze your plans and projects, perhaps you may also feel like traveling on this day and get a broader perspective on life.
The Harvest Full Moon in the compassionate water sign Pisces occurs on Monday, Sept. 20th, This moon can increase our imagination, psychic awareness, and compassion for all living things. This is a good time to celebrate the bounty the earth gives us and to evaluate how you use your energy as Pisces moon stirs up the imagination and the Sun in Virgo its opposite polarity shows how to take practical steps to create those imaginative forms.
The transiting Sun enters into the air sign Libra, at the Fall Equinox Sept. 22, it’s a time for celebrations and social occasions that celebrate the earth’s bounty at this harvest time for most who live in the northern hemisphere a time of gratitude for what we can share with others.
Mercury goes retrograde Sunday, Sept. 26th, its time to slow down, be flexible with schedules, go over plans and projects that need to be finished up before you start any new ones. Mercury in Libra retrograde can encourage our communication and peacekeeping ideas with others. In this air sign, Mercury who rules over communications can help us with negotiations to be fair and just. And to go over our concepts are they fair and just? Mercury goes direct on October 18th.
The Last Quarter Moon occurs Sept. 28th in the water sign Cancer. This can be an emotionally sensitive time as we nostalgically review our home, security, and comforts. The last quarter moon is good to recharge one’s energy.
And that’s the forecast for this month, email me with questions or to make an appointment for a reading. Take care,
