Star Cast for the week of September 28
by Maya White
Last night we experienced a divinely inspired lunar eclipse. Today the cycle of life continues; and here we are on to a new day.
My key phrase for this week is step forward and don’t look back.
In perfect synchronicity, we begin this week with the moon in Aries, the sign of fresh starts. Astrology teaches that Aries the sign of individual action also needs Libra, the sign of partnerships.
So, at this time, although the stars invite new beginning, they also suggest that success comes through working with others to achieve what you want. That makes good sense, right?
Monday, September 28th, is intense. If you feel almost hung-over from the lunar eclipse energy, take heart and understand that it’ll get easier. The Aries moon first opposes Mercury, next squares Pluto, and finally joins Uranus, the planet of dynamic change. Uranus the catalyst invites you to merge unrelated substances, or, events, or ideas, and create something completely new and original.
Love is in the Air
Tuesday the Cosmos gifts us all with a ‘sweetheart’ aspects of Moon trine Venus in the early morning and Moon trine Mars in the afternoon. Venus, now in late Leo has almost cleared the path of her previous retrograde; by mid-October Venus moves into fresh zodiacal territory.
Venus is predictable in her movements and cycles, and she synchronizes form and harmony through the five pointed star of her celestial movements. Bright Venus, the morning star in late Leo, invites you to go for what you want.
By Wednesday, the last day of September, the moon is well into Taurus, the sign of manifestation. This is a great day to take your new inspiration and quickly make it real. Also, on Wednesday, the Sun conjuncts wayward, retrograde Mercury.
Consider that the Sun always moves forward and Mercury is now traveling backward. Like two friends meeting for an afternoon cup of tea, this Sun/Mercury connection offers a great day to sit down and get your plans stabilized and ready for action.
Conversely, if you’re feeling ‘wobbly’ around the Mercury retrograde, (moving too fast?) Wednesday is a day when something simple can turn into a tangled mess. Go for the cup of tea idea; you’ll be happiest when you take it slow, and keep things friendly.
Both Mars and Jupiter are hovering together in the early degrees of Virgo. This combination also suggests that it’s a great time to refine, purify, and correct. Use the dynamic energy of Jupiter and Mars in Virgo to help you make changes. It’s a time to define, to get clear about what you want to do, and then take action.
The secret is making the course correction while in motion; you don’t have to stop cold – just keep moving forward.
Enjoy these days of the Libra sun as you’re moving ahead, and remember, don’t look back. Do your course corrections while in motion, you don’t have to stop your forward motion in order to refine your project or even your life.
Astrology gives insight on your health, wealth, and even timing. Have an amazing week, and a fantastically rich and rewarding life.
