An astrological analysis of the week to help you make the most of the moment.
This is an emotionally eventful week as Venus in romantic, egalitarian Libra opposes restless and dissident Uranus and then squares transformative Pluto. Pluto turns direct after a long retrograde. It may be a fun weekend, certainly will touch our hearts, and could open up our creative channels. Our inner landscape is changing, let’s change our minds and hearts, but do so in a good direction. Venus is in metamorphosis as it opposes Uranus and squares Pluto: Venus rules our heart, what we love and find beautiful, what we value, our values themselves, and our materiel goods. Changes are essential, they’re happing, and can take a toll on our emotions, but we need to not overplay that hand and suffer more than necessary. We may feel an urge to switch it up a bit but can make a subtle adjustment and not throw the baby out with the bathwater. The economy… Read More
Starcodes Sept 9, 2011 Heather Roan Robbins This week’s astro-instructions: follow up on leads. Pick up the possibilities and conversations we dropped over the summer. Do not drop the ball on what is important even though the energy is busy, scattered and many people need attention. Stay on track with those long-term goals even if some nagging self-doubts whisper of faults and limitations. We need to do some basic time management and sort out the important from the urgent because it may be hard to tell them apart. A lot of urgent little fires will call on our attention and can keep us from investing our time and energy into the bigger projects and relationships that really matter to us. We can expect a lot of cross talk and interference both from inside our heads and from our environment as it’s a busy week. But last week began a several-week window of… Read More
( I’ll be in Santa fe, NM and seeing clients Sept 5-9th- firstname.lastname@example.org) Get to work. Ok, think about it now and get to work after Labor Day. That’s what the planets tell us. This is a fertile if confusing time, what we work on now can really take root, so let’s make it matter. We may still have trouble clearly seeing what we’re dealing with or where we’re going, but can still walk forward with awareness and make tangible progress this week as the Sun, Jupiter and Pluto form three corners of an auspicious triangle in pragmatic earth signs. Let’s make it so. No need to hurry, though, earth signs call for a grounded, steady approach. We can occasionally feel overwhelmed by the tasks ahead of us, both as a person and as a species, because we see them more clearly. Some confusion, uncertainty, or just foggy thinking that… Read More
(I’ll be in Santa Fe, NM seeing clients Sept 5-9th, please email if interested in a reading) “The power of intuitive understanding will protect you from harm until the end of your days.” Lao Tzu. Right now, all other methods of sharing information are doubtful, so we’ll need to use all our intuitive understanding to wade through confusion and straighten our lines of communication. Mercury has been in a particularly confusing and foggy retrograde cycle for the last three weeks and now turns direct. But as it turns direct the waters swirl, the winds and the conversation churns, and we see what has been brewing in the fog. On Monday a New Moon in hardworking Virgo calls us to roll up our sleeves and get to work. But first we need to tell our story. As the Moon enters Leo while Mercury turns direct circumstances can get dramatic this weekend. In… Read More
We need to drop our assumptions, listen to one another and try to understand why others think the way they do. Because circumstances are confusing this week, we cannot force the issues or try to make the scenario fit what we want, that only hurries us down the wrong road. But finesse and understanding encourage sweetness and help us make the most of the moment. Relaxation, spaciness, occasional confusion, lethargy, and depression are a reasonable reaction in the last few weeks of summer’s heat while fall whispers to us of its inevitability. If only we can slow down and stop for a week. Just stop. Take a week to repair and renew, to analyze and organize, but not take action under as Venus and the Sun oppose Neptune, Saturn sequi-squares Neptune all under a retrograde Mercury. Contemplate life in a gentle, reflective light and remember who we are before the autumn’s… Read More
Everyone just chill out. With the wild and wooly aspects this week, it may be hard to see where we’re going, but we can be renewed by our mutual companionship in the meantime; this weekend’s Full Moon in Aquarius calls for us to enjoy the community, feel the pulse of all our relations and act for the collective good. We need this renewal, this week’s vibe can leave us antsy to change what needs to be changed but conflicted about the alternatives. We’re still vibrating with last week’s feisty, action-oriented, accident-prone T-square between Mars, Uranus and Pluto that encourages people to be really good at dealing with emergencies, but also painfully good at creating emergencies where they didn’t need to be. It can bring a weird urgency and intensity once the ball gets rolling, whether we’re cleaning out a closet, selling stock or rioting in London. While this can be… Read More
