Astrology Update: September 2013

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

An interesting month indeed! With a polarized New and Full moon, emotional juices will flow no matter which side of the political/spiritual fence you are sitting on.  And with Mercury dancing in three signs, relationships may be a little unstable.

We begin on September 1st with two powerful configurations that promote spiritual development and transformation in all aspects of your life. (Pluto trine Sun & Moon/Mars conjunction).

Then on September 5th the New Moon 13° 04’Virgo at 7:36am EST, gives your transformation more momentum with   2 Kites, a Yod, Mystic Rectangle, Grand Cross and a stellium in Virgo.

This New Moon is a huge catharsis toward healing the rifts we have within ourselves and with others, transforming them and then moving toward spiritual development through deep questioning of who we are, and where we are going both as individuals and as a culture.

For you astrology buffs, here are the specific configurations.  2 Kites: Grand Trine: S.Node/Pluto/Sun & Moon, Sextiles: Pluto/N.Node & Chiron + Chiron/S.Node & Pluto, Yod: Uranus quincunx Sun/Moon/N.Node, Sun sextile N. Node, Mystic Rectangle:  S.Node trine Sun/Moon, sextile N.Node trine Chiron, sextile S. Node, Grand Cross:  Nodal opposition and Sun/Moon opposing Chiron, Virgo stellium: Mercury/Part of Fortune/Sun/Moon.

On September 9th, Mercury moves from detailed Virgo to liberating Libra.  Set some time aside for socializing with others.

When Venus enters Scorpio, four weeks on September11, watch out for passionate encounters in your relationships and anger issues.

Transition begins over the next six days preparing us for the polarizing energies of this month’s Full Moon with a Saturn/N.Node conjunction on September 12, Uranus/Mars trine on September 14 and then Saturn/Venus/N. Node conjunction on September 18.  Here we are subjected to a roller coater ride of conforming to the prevailing culture, then rejecting old conditions, followed again by a more conservative approach.

Watch out for this month’s Full Moon on Sept 19th in 26° 41’Pisces at 7:13 am EST!!  Its configurations suggest a huge emotional backlash from the Powers that be.  Configurations are: Grand Cross: (Pluto/Jupiter opposition, and S.Node opposing N.Node/Venus/Saturn), Sun opposing Moon/Part of Fortune, Uranus quincunx Venus/Saturn and Mars square N.Node/Venus/Saturn.

When Pluto turns direct on September 20, see hidden truths revealed.  Sun enters Libra on the 22, giving way to the Fall Equinox. And we end the month with Mercury moving into Scorpio for the next nine weeks on September 29.  This will be a good time for deep, transformative thinking of how to make the world a better place. However, if things are not going your way, be careful not to let depression seep in.
















Astrology Update: February 2013

Friday, February 1st, 2013
Astrological shifts begin the month on February 1st with Mars entering Pisces and Venus entering Aquarius: an interesting mix of two very different energies. Watch out for erupting suppressed anger and strong unconscious emotions with Mars, while Venus brings us an impersonal, though friendly outlook on life, and a need for freedom in relationships.

Mercury enters Pisces on February 5th helping us enhance our intuitions, and imagination. However, watch out for fluctuating emotions and vacillating  decision-making.

On February 10th at 2:20 am EST the New Moon joins Venus and the Sun in Aquarius at 21º43′, while four other planets (Neptune, Mars, Mercury and Chiron) are in Pisces.  With this type of stellium it would be easy to assume that this New Moon will be a bed of Roses for spiritual development in mankind. However, the multitude of aspects suggests that a conscious choice must be made and reflects that dualism still prevails.

It’s time to review or assess your accomplishments, while curtailing new projects as Saturn moves retrograde on February 18th and stays there for five months. Mercury joins this backward motion on February 23rd, going retrograde until March 17th.

We end the month with the Full Moon on February 25th at 3:26 pm EST, 7º24′ Virgo, featuring a grand stellium of five planets in Pisces. (Neptune, Sun, Chiron, Mars, Mercury, with Venus at 29º Aquarius, displaying a bit of both signs)

 The major aspect here is an exact, mutable T square with Sun/Moon in opposition, square Jupiter that may bring crisis due to emotional excess and wanting to achieve too much, too fast. This is supported by the Mars/Mercury square that can bring arguments, irritation and an inclination to jump to conclusions and Moon opposing Neptune, helping you project your emotional confusion.

However, this Full Moon continues to reflect the theme of choice and duality with Sun/Venus conjunct Neptune, Sun trine Saturn, Pluto trine Moon and  sextile Sun. These aspects give us the option of communing with the Divine, spiritual love and understanding deeper levels of conscious, strength of will, power to do good, and emotional regeneration of self and environment.
