Weekly Astrology Notes Sept 3-10, 2017
Note: Times shown are in Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)
Weekly Summary: On Sunday, 9/3, Mercury conjunct Mars gives us lots of energy to express the inspiration that came though during the recent Solar Eclipse. The early part of the week, Monday through Wednesday, is a time of transition, a lot of Virgo-Pisces energy, which is all about making transitions from one phase of life to the next. We have Sun opposition Neptune and Moon enters Pisces late Monday evening, followed by Moon conjunct Neptune (Pisces) Tuesday evening and the then the Full Moon at 13d Pisces just after midnight on Wednesday morning. Then the Moon is Void of Course from Wednesday afternoon until early Thursday morning. So I’d say that Monday through Wednesday is not a time to start new projects. It’s time for reflection and mediation while we are more open to the subtle vibrations around us. A time of greater sensitivity and empathy, yet also a time when thoughts con-fuse with others and we feel confounded by the events in our lives, more spiritual yet open to self-deception and wishful thinking. A time of transition, letting go of old thought patterns and useless things in life (Pisces), making a precise adjustment (Virgo) for future success, resolving to work harder in the future while being helpful and compassionate towards others along the way. A time to rely on hope and beliefs. And in the midst of all of this Mercury goes Stationary Direct on Tuesday, but we should wait to start new projects until Thursday morning when the Moon enters Aires.
On Friday evening to Saturday morning we have Sun trine Pluto and that should bring a strong burst of energy to weekend activities. A wonderful aspect will bring up some sexual energy as well as the opportunity to reform your life in some way.
Also this week, continuing to talk about the upcoming Jupiter opposition Uranus and how it effects Israel.
On Sunday, Mercury (r) conjunct Mars and we are looking to express the energy that came though during the recent Solar Eclipse.
On Monday, A challenging Monday, your energy may get scattered, you may need meditation to collect yourself and conserve your energy. Aspects today are not conducive to work, so we could see rebellious behavior. In the early evening we have two hard Moon oppositions that could lead to disagreements. But the Pisces energy overflows this evening with Sun opposition Neptune and Moon enters Pisces. Not an assertive time, lack of discipline and will power. Good time for meditation.
On Tuesday, Mars enters Virgo and Mercury goes Stationary Direct. A period of ego (Mars) adjustment (Virgo) begins along with a renewed conscious direction. The Neptune energy continues with Moon opposition Neptune in the evening and the Full Moon in Pisces just after midnight. And the Sun opposition Neptune from yesterday evening is still in effect this morning, so there is a lot of dissolving and letting go at this point in the week, you may feel confounded today, but it will pass. A good time for meditation.
On Wednesday, The Full Moon just after midnight sets the tone for the day. A sensitive and impression feeling today with Moon in Pisces. Folks are dreamy and not interested in work, lack assertiveness.
On Thursday, No exact aspects. Moon enters Aires in the morning.
On Friday, A powerful and transformative day with lots of sexual energy. Moon in Aires gives us four aspects to keep the ego energies flowing and Sun trine Pluto happening early Saturday morning is in effect on Friday evening, making it a gracious and lucky night.
On Saturday, Sun trine Pluto makes it day to work on getting ahead, reform you life and make a change for the better.
On Sunday, A wonderful healing and sensitive Sunday. Morning is sensual and spiritual. Afternoon is positively warm and earthy with the Moon forming a grand trine in earth signs, a lucky day.
Mercury (r) conjunct Mars and we are looking to express the energy that came though during the recent Solar Eclipse.
2:39am – Mercury (r) conjunct Mars (Leo) Today we identify (Mars) with our ideas and opinions (Mercury). Make folks headstrong, not willing to compromise. It’s a good day to start projects, initiate some idea, in Leo, so it’s a creative project. Pride is involved in what we say today, so best to be cautious with your words today because they may be interpreted the wrong way, like you want to start a fight. Mars gives you a sharp, focused mind, like a spot light that shines on just one specific area, enabling you to focus on one thing and do it well. But this energy needs to be somewhat internalized with Mercury still retrograde, we are still in the rethinking mode, so primarily you’ll need to shine that spotlight on yourself.
Check to see which house this aspect is happening in your chart. You will experience an impulsive need to communicate something important about that facet of your life. You will want to see your ideas (Mercury) on stage (Leo) getting the attention they deserve. You need to give conscious direction to that house in your chart now.
Last week I mentioned that this is the start of a new Mercury-Mars cycle, but actually since Mercury is retrograde, we will be getting this aspect again soon, on 9/16 at 7d Virgo, so we get to do this twice. This passage is just sort of a test run for the real start, which is all about the ability to speak your mind and adequately stand up for yourself and defend your opinions when necessary, showing the world that you can becoming single (Mars) minded (Mercury), rather than mentally con-fused with others. Mars takes the energy of the inner planets and directs it to the outer planets, the outer self. So in this case Mars compels your thoughts and ideas (Mercury) to be expressed. What you think is important. The world needs to know. That’s the attitude you need to have with this aspect.
What’s most interesting is that this conjunction is at 28d Leo, the same degree as the Solar Eclipse. Once again this degree is in the spotlight. The aspect helps us recapture the new energy that came through on the Solar Eclipse and use it as the foundation of our ideas that get expressed in the world. So that inspiration of the eclipse needs expression, in fact it demands expression. The universe is giving us this aspect twice and as I see it, this first pass compels you to express in the world whatever it was that came to you during the Eclipse. The house in which this aspects and the Eclipse occur in your chart takes on much more significance than usual, you’ll need to apply more energy there.
8:49am – Moon (Aquarius) opposition Venus (Leo). Friends don’t understand you, you’ll need to be diplomatic (Venus), not a good time for social gatherings. Maybe best spend a little time alone on Sunday morning.
A challenging Monday, your energy may get scattered, you may need meditation to collect yourself and conserve your energy. Aspects today are not conducive to work, so we could see rebellious behavior. In the early evening we have two hard Moon oppositions that could lead to disagreements. But the Pisces energy overflows this evening with Sun opposition Neptune and Moon enters Pisces. Not an assertive time, lack of discipline and will power. Good time for meditation.
6:04am – Moon (Aquarius) sextile Saturn (Sagittarius) A liberating aspect in these signs which readies us for work, but the time is best spent doing yoga.
8:44am – Moon (Aquarius) trine Jupiter (Libra) A love of freedom, desire to feel the air in your face. Emotions expand and we want to be with friends and loved ones, not work.
6:56pm – Moon (Aquarius) sextile Uranus (Aires) The liberating energy from this morning continues this evening. Strong ambition, desire to change, interested in the unusual, something different.
7:33pm – Moon (Aquarius) opposition Mercury (Leo) A disconnect between the conscious (Mercury) and subconscious (Moon) leaves us a bit restless and fixed in one direction. A sharp mind can lead to excessive talking which blocks the natural intuitive process and leads to domineering behavior in these signs. Not a good time for communication (Mercury) with a group (Aquarius).
10:15pm – Moon (Aquarius) opposition Mars (Leo) Impulsive emotional state leads to disagreements. Fixed signs makes it hard to adjust to the needs of the group. Whatever it is that’s going wrong, don’t take it personally. Take care of your health and avoid giving in to unhealthy choices. Void of Course begins.
10:28pm – Moon enters Pisces. This is a big passage of Moon in Pisces because we have the Full Moon in Pisces and the Sun opposition Neptune bringing an ocean’s worth of watery energy, it’ll be like Houston last week, a flood of energy to come in and dissolve lots of things in your life. A time of letting go. The best thing is to keep your faith and hope during the next couple of days as your emotions dissolve into the collective and you feel the feelings of everyone around you. Hard to assert yourself now, so best not to try, it may just come out as a flood of tears. Strongly recommend meditation and/or prayer, whatever works best for you. We all need a major adjustment to prepare us for what’s to come later this month.
10:28pm – Sun (Virgo) opposition Neptune (Pisces) The Sun dissolves into the energy of Pisces and our will (Sun) gets con-fused (Pisces) with everyone else. The effect is a loss of willpower, inability to stand up for yourself and a general sense like your are living in a cloud. Your best bet is too find the cloud you are most comfortable with and hang out there this evening. The wonderful, dreamy feeling that accompanies this aspect is great for getting in touch with spirit, opening you up to the sublte vibrations that are all around us but which we usually tune out in order to stay functional. After all, if we were always walking around in a cloud it would be hard to develop your individuality.
The negative side in all of this is failure to stand up for yourself may lead to surrendering (Neptune) your will to someone else. Also, since all oppositions affect relationships, this aspect could create distortion between you and others that will seem impossible to overcome in the moment, but are easily let go once this energy has passed. The best thing this aspect brings to relationships is the idea of faith and having hope for your future together, so this aspect could produce a profound coupling that reaffirms your commitment to one another, just need to let go of judgment.
As I see it, this aspect is the most significant aspect of Sun in Virgo. Virgo asks that we make a precise adjustment, often to save us from our own past mistakes. There is an element of forgiveness that is necessary in this process, and that means Pisces. Therefore Virgo requires that we remain helpful towards others. This is all part of the function of Virgo which is to correct yourself and let you know that your are part of something bigger than yourself. Virgo prepares you to emerge from your inner world to the outer world. Part of doing that means service to others.
So if you feel so-called “confused” today, just know that you’re is being con-fused with that of others, you are becoming more part of the collective, which means your will must dissolve into the will of others. If you are not able to assert yourself today it’s because you are not meant to. Instead just be open to the spirit world around you and receive whatever gift is in store for you.
Mars enters Virgo and Mercury goes Stationary Direct. A period of ego (Mars) adjustment (Virgo) begins along with a renewed conscious direction. The Neptune energy continues with Moon conjunct Neptune in the evening and the Full Moon in Pisces just after midnight. And the Sun opposition Neptune from yesterday evening is still in effect this morning, so there is a lot of dissolving and letting go at this point in the week, you may feel confounded today, but it will pass. A good time for meditation.
2:35am – Mars enters Virgo. Until 10/23. Mars is the ego, desire nature and Virgo is meticulous, process oriented and helpful, so Mars in Virgo needs to work, follow a specific routine and feel like they are helping someone else. The relentless nature of Virgo, like the digestive system which never stops, means Mars in Virgo can work too hard, don’t know when to stop, and it takes a toll on health, for this reason it’s important to find a grounding activity, like gardening where you can apply this energy in a healthy way. During this 7 week time of Mars in Virgo we are working hard to get ahead, not interested in superficial affairs and we are keen to help others. Sexual desire is pretty strong with Virgo and you may find yourself focused on the healing aspect of sex more than usual.
4:30am – Mercury goes Stationary Direct at 28d26′ Leo. Continues Direct until 12/4 at 29d Sagittarius. Time to move forward with you plans, although this time best to wait until Thursday when the Moon enters Aires. Mercury is stopping and spending a lot of time at 28d Leo help reinvigorate us with the inspiration we got from the Solar Eclipse.
And with the Moon having a strong dose of Pisces energy at the start of the Direct Motion period tells me that we will need to push back the veil and reveal hidden things because there is much potential for deception during this time. But the veil is thin and will not take much energy to push it away if you are conscious. We emerge from the shadow degrees, past 11d Virgo, on 9/20. Until then we are doing over previous ground and correcting our thinking.
10:08pm – Moon conjunct Neptune (Pisces) A cosmic poke on your belly button. Very sensitive, need to be a nurturing environment, nothing harsh. In a quiet place, perhaps during mediation, you can find yourself feeling an incredible connection to the unconscious collective. Best to stay home this evening if you can.
Full Moon just after midnight is strongest this evening.
The Full Moon just after midnight sets the tone for the day. A sensitive and impression feeling today with Moon in Pisces. Folks are dreamy and not interested in work, lack aggression.
12:03am – Moon (Pisces) opposition Sun (Virgo) Full Moon at 13d53′ Pisces. This Full Moon could bring up a lot of subconscious energies along with the usual emotional insecurities that accompany the Full Moon. In Pisces there is no discernment, so you attract someone rather different from what your used to. Easy to be deceived, fool yourself into thinking the best of someone when they have some hidden agenda. However, there is opportunities to heal old wounds and in doing so reclaim lost elements of self. This Full Moon is best spent in a quiet, therapeutic environment, not a good time to be on the streets.
5:39am – Moon (Pisces) sextile Pluto (Capricorn) A burst of energy to get you going in the morning. Circumstances compel you to attend to the needs of others. Lot of compassion and helpfulness, ability to teach and to help others reform their life.
1:29pm – Moon (Pisces) square Saturn (Sagittarius) Lack of empathy towards others, feeling isolated and confounded. Showing compassion in these moments can help to overcome limited thinking. Not good for digestion. Void of Course begins.
No exact aspects. Moon enters Aires in the morning.
5:01am – Moon enters Aires. The sullen time of Moon in Pisces is over and it’s time to start new projects. Folks are more headstrong for the next couple of days,
A powerful and transformative day with lots of sexual energy. Moon in Aires gives us four aspects to keep the ego energies flowing and Sun trine Pluto happening early Saturday morning is in effect on Friday evening, making it a lucky night.
9:30am – Moon (Aires) trine Venus (Leo). The primadonna or the cassanova comes out in everyone this morning, very playful. Strong female ego energies and they want to be noticed. People act like they are on stage looking for attention, a strong contrast to the early part of the week.
10:49am – Moon (Aires) square Pluto (Capricorn) Demanding energy continues. Strong burst of energy felt internally, you can call upon energy from deep within to purge emotion insecurities, find stamina that you never thought you had, or you could be jealous and on a power trip.
6:27pm – Moon (Aires) trine Saturn (Sagittarius). A time to set priorities in life. Good perspective (Sagittarius) on how you can incorporate more structure (Saturn) into your identity (Aires). May prefer to work alone, willing to work hard for future gain.
10:15pm – Moon (Aires) opposition Jupiter (Libra). A good crowd aspect, good time to be at a social gathering, not necessarily a political rally though. Emotions expand and we want to share with others, so it’s a good time for a party. Folks tend to overindulge, spend lots of money.
Sun trine Pluto will bring up lots of sexual energy on Friday evening, folks dressing sexy to make just the right connection.
Sun trine Pluto makes it day to work on getting ahead, reform you life and make a change for the better.
3:41am – Sun (Virgo) trine Pluto (Capricorn). This aspect a wonderful opportunity, so don’t waste it. It’s time for a change for the better. Utilize (Capricorn) this energy to reform your life. Making a precise adjustment (Virgo) that leads to career (Capricorn) opportunities. Doing the right thing for everyone concerned and not taking more than your fair share is imperative with any Pluto aspect, today it’s easier to do with the trine, but you still have to do it, and it’s easier today because you have the intrinsic understanding that what benefits another benefits you. So you are open to sharing what you have if it helps improve conditions for someone else, and this includes society in general not just friends, so it’s a really good aspect for helping others and getting involved with some community service.
Take a look to see which houses this aspect is effecting. There you will have a great opportunity.
Generally, we have more intensity and lust (Pluto) for life (Sun) with this transit. You may desire to dig deep (Pluto) on some matter to get to the bottom of things, good for processing and digesting (Virgo) information. Good time for investigating important topics or for making a formidable impression on others. Just try not to be too forceful, the Moon in Aires can be rather headstrong and this aspect adds to that.
Folks express (Sun) themselves with more sexual (Pluto) energy, so for sure this aspect will bring out lots of sexual display. Pluto is sexual impulse and Virgo can be really sexy with meticulous looks and a healthy body. Folks will really want to dress sexy and be seen on Friday evening, looking for a connection to just the right (Virgo) person that will help them succeed (Capricorn).
Pluto brings more force and charisma to the Sun, our will, so you feel more confident, capable, gutsy, willing to go the full mile before you finish. Just be cautious of ruthless or insensitive behavior. If it comes at you, you have an inner confidence and sense of self that you can rely upon to walk away and look for something better. This trine brings together adaptable, mutable Virgo with initiating, cardinal Capricorn. The result is an ability to make a quick move in the right direction, just what you need to get ahead of the game, but no more than that.
Someone could come into your life and really give you a boost and help change your life for the better. A benefactor may come in the form of an authority figure (Capricorn) or a parent. Just believe the universe is trying to help you and remain open to help in whatever form it may come. That’s because today it feels empowering to be the benefactor for someone else, it gives life more meaning and purpose. We all have to live for the benefit of someone else and this aspect brings out that basic human need.
5:54am – Moon conjunct Uranus (Aires) Looking for change in the home, desire to modernize (Uranus) your base emotional state (Moon), can be unsettling and disruptive, this is meant to help you break out of a stagnant situation. Strong desire for freedom and independence. With Moon in Aires and Uranus currently retrograde, be careful of this aspect as it could lead to self-destructive behavior. The intelligence and awareness that this aspect brings needs to be focused inward to bring change on the inside. When you do this, you find yourself coming up with new ideas, new ways of doing things, new ways to solve emotional problems. Maybe, instead of breaking free of emotional bonds, you find a innovative (Uranus) way to renew them. Maybe do something different with your partner.
8:52am – Moon (Aires) trine Mercury (Leo). Void of Course begins.
9:23am – Moon enters Taurus. We are more interested in finding our comfort zone for the next couple of days, a bit sluggish but charge like a bull once we get going. Steadfast and sensual, good time for a massage or to spend some time taking care of yourself. Too much emotional attachment to personal possessions can slow you down.
2:16pm – Moon (Taurus) trine Mars (Virgo). Skillful (Virgo) use of personal resources (Taurus). In this case, careful analysis gives us an opportunity to gain something of personal value.
7:52pm – Mercury enters Virgo. Once again after the retrograde. Until 9/30, so the next 20 days in Virgo. Virgo is critical, analytical and precise. With Mercury in Virgo, the conscious mind takes on these qualities. But the keyword with Virgo is helpful. They are always looking to be helpful to others. For this reason, they are attracted to work in the health care industry. Mentally adaptable, Virgo is Mutable just like Gemini, and displays good judgment. The keywords during this time are skillful (Virgo) use of the conscious mind (Mercury). Brush up on the details, get your facts straight. Be helpful towards others. Focus on your health regime.
A relaxing Sunday with Moon in Taurus giving us some great aspects. Morning is sensual and spiritual. Afternoon is positively warm and earthy with the Moon forming a grand trine in earth signs, a lucky day.
7:06am – Moon (Taurus) sextile Neptune (Pisces). A wonderful sextile that opens us up to the presence of nature spirits, good for healing with crystals and stones, massage and anything sensual.
2:19pm – Moon (Taurus) trine Pluto (Capricorn) A change for the better. Use the energy to reform you life, maybe your home or personal environment. An opportunity to heal others, give to another to help transform their life. Or an opportunity to earn money or gain something of personal value. Good time for business transactions.
4:54pm – Moon (Taurus) trine Sun (Virgo) Feeling warm and caring, helpful towards others. Good time for social gatherings, enjoying the sensual pleasures in life. Both of these trines bring luck or potential for some wonderful opportunity.
5:54pm – Moon Taurus) square Venus (Leo). Void of Course begins, continues until Monday afternoon. So Sunday evening is mellow time once again with Moon Void of Course, time to relax and let go. And we’ll have another slow Monday morning on the 11th.
That’s all for this weeks’ aspects.
Jupiter opposition Uranus
Already I talked about the USA and Bashar al Assad and the EU. This week we take a look at
Notice this aspect is happening close to the Ascendant – Decendant axis.
Jupiter conjunct the Ascendant is wonderful, it should increase their popularity and we can expect some event to put them in the news (Jupiter). Transit brings growth or expansion and an optimistic outlook, even good luck.
But Uranus opposition Ascendant can be a restless time with lots of conflicts. Uranus going through the 7th house is for many people some of the most contentious and amazing years of their life. It’s a time when you need to show the world your unique qualities and at the same time adopt egalitarian values and lifestyle.
With Uranus coming above the horizon this is both a time of Israel rising in prominence and a time of spritual conflict. They are a major part of the battle over who will dominate the global process of evolution, i.e. who rules the world. And that’s a spiritual battle. During this time they are trying to incorporate Uranus in Aires, the spiritual warrior, into their national personality. As they would say in Star Wars, the force is strong in them now.
At this point I should mention that this chart represent not just Israel but Israeli interests, which can be found all over the world. So the whole world-wide battle for control intimately involves Israel and Israeil interests throught the globe. The current paradigm that includes Israel occupying this special, unique position in the world is under intense scrutiny. The battle for world dominance will play out as a fight over Israel’s unique status in the world.
So the propaganda is flowing strongly since the start of this transit. Next passes are 10/27 and 3/8/2018. At the last pass of Jupiter opposition Uranus there is a good chance they’re going to do something surprising. Something that will carry a lot of folks along with them, like a cult leader would do.
Let me underscore the high potential for conflict with this transit and for the following 7 years. And when this aspect arrives, due to their near concurrent transits we can predict that Israel will play a leading role in how it manifests for the rest of humanity. Israeli interests will see this as an opportunity to take a big step forward with their plans, do something surprising and maybe reveal an aspect of themselves that has never been seen openly before.
Uranus opposition Ascendant has made Israel and Israeli interests around the globe a great catalyst for change and a peak moment for that change will take place at this last pass of Jupiter opposition Uranus. They are positioning themselves to take a lead role in whatever new paradigm is being rolled out for humanity to step into. And who knows, maybe they could be the ones who reveal new technology or evidence of ancient artifacts.
