Friday September 21, 2018

The Moon goes VOC this morning at 10:13 AM PDT and won't arrive in Pisces until early tomorrow morning. The most important activity today seems to be going on behind the scenes in secret meetings and hidden agreements. However, there are also significant ego concerns that seem to be part of the equation, possibly keeping many of us on the defense and looking for protection. We may feel the need to protect whatever progress was made yesterday, especially when we see that progress is stalled today. The odd and/or erratic behavior that we see today probably has more method than madness but it may not all become apparent until we turn a corner at the Full Moon next Monday (7:15 PM PDT 1° Aries/Libra).



Weekly Summary

SEPTEMBER 16 - SEPTEMBER 22

"Pressure comes from a lack of preparation. "
— Colin Kaepernick

The Sun arrives in Libra, the sign of Justice and Balance at the end of this week. As the Sun moves through the last degrees of Virgo over the course of the week, it is as though we are provided a trail of breadcrumbs — minuscule details to follow. In essence, by following the breadcrumbs, we are preparing ourselves to better understand the developing view of a bigger picture. We may find ourselves continuing to struggle with uncertainty and vacillation but by keeping a narrow focus on the details, we should be able to make significant progress. Mars moves back into an impatient square to Uranus and approaches the South Node in Aquarius. Self restraint is necessary to keep us from displaying erratic and likely ill-timed outbursts of frustration. The strain may produce some extreme challenges to our nervous systems if we aren't able to keep our focus on the myriad of details that we have directly in front of us. It is more important than ever to look at the fine print, analyze each phrase, word and angle and leave our Big Picture goals, vision, and perspective aside — at least for now. Once we reach next week's Full Moon (September 24, 7:52 PM PDT 1° Aries/Libra), we will find that this week's trail of breadcrumb — the details — have led us to a fascinating new perspective. However, we aren't likely to have any certainty, this week, of exactly where we are going or what it is all leading too. The lack of certainty may produce some uncomfortable questions that, in turn, lead us to try to stretch the truth in an attempt to satisfy uncertainty. However, such dissembling is only likely to produce increased impatience and lead to the increased likelihood of sudden outbursts of frustration.

Sunday's atmosphere is particularly restless and uncertain, potentially leading to to a tendency to blur the lines and stretch the truth as we try to distract from and uncomfortable questions. Increased responsibility on Monday brings increased candor. Nonetheless, the building tension could lead to some tangible strain on our nervous systems. Self-restraint is tested on Tuesday. Steady effort will bring a extra dose of luck to help overcome the tension. If we can stay focused on the details on Wednesday, we should find help maintaining self-restraint — which is extraordinarily important. Continuing our focus on the details and the fine print into Thursday, we may recognize that there are important clues to follow — breadcrumbs — which will lead us to broader understanding and insight next week. Behavior becomes increasingly erratic under the VOC Moon in Aquarius on Friday. Much of the important activity is behind the scenes. The Sun arrives in Libra on Saturday, following Mercury's entrance on Friday evening. We begin to gain increased interest what others are really thinking. However such interest may lead to increasing paranoia. The insights that surface on Saturday foreshadow a broader perspective that will unfold next week.

Saturday September 22, 2018

The Sun arrives in Libra today, the sign of Justice and Balance. Intuition is sharp and strong, leading us into very deep waters. Mercury accompanies the Sun into Libra, leading us towards deeper interest in understanding what others are thinking and how decisions are being made. The seeds of wisdom are beginning to sprout (as Saturn's direct motion picks up speed) and those new shoots will produce significant developments over the next two weeks, The threads we find to follow today may not seem to be all that significant but by using our intuition, we will recognize their importance — even if others don't clearly understand what we think we're seeing. Of course, the undercurrents of secrecy and hidden agreements that seem to be woven into this environment may also begin to produce deepening paranoia — a notable element of the coming retrograde Venus (October 6 - November 16).

Sunday September 23, 2018

Intuition continues to be our guiding force today. We seem to be actively processing a great deal of information, weighing options, and determining strategies. As we approach Full Moon tomorrow evening (7:52 PM PDT 1° Aries/Libra), imperatives become stronger and more intense, increasing our desire to come to some conclusions and make a plan for moving forward. Nonetheless, we are feeling the need for caution, creating uncertainty. We may feel we have no choice but to rely on some potentially hazy intuitive clues but the imperatives have us making use of whatever we can find — even if we're not sure. The Moon goes VOC this evening at 10:25 PM PDT.



Weekly Summary

SEPTEMBER 23 - SEPTEMBER 29

"Anger is a manifestation of a deeper issue... and that, for me, is based on insecurity, self-esteem and loneliness."
— Naomi Campbell

Mars has passed the square to Uranus but moves into a tricky conjunction with the South Node this week. Whatever lingering, impatience, frustration and anger need to be cleared away through honesty and cooperation. Anger can be particularly destructive in this atmosphere. There is a strong tendency to try to push through obstacles instead of taking enough time to find cooperation. We may feel additional frustration with Chiron moving back into Pisces, increasing the challenge of clearly describing everything we're seeing and feeling. In this atmosphere, the subtle shift of Chiron may increase defensiveness and keep us from fully taking responsibility for the challenges we're facing. Monday's Full Moon adds to the pressure by producing a building sense of imperative, leading us to believe that whatever we're trying to make happen needs to happen right now! We may be dogged by some uncertainty at the beginning of the week but after the Full Moon, we will have to admit that courage and uncertainty isn't enough — we have to get cooperation from others in order to move past the obstacles. Ultimately, we seem to pull through by staying focused on our responsibilities. Rather than being driven by fear, obligation, or threat, we can begin to recognize the value of staying grounded and making steady, deliberate progress. That is not to say that we need to stay completely safe in a dull, repetitive rut. Rather, a sense of responsibility helps the bring the innovative energy of Mars in Aquarius into tangible form.

We may feel particularly unsteady on Sunday, finding only a few hazy intuitive clues to keep us on track. Even so, the imperatives are building and we feel compelled to use whatever clues we can find. Monday's Full Moon brings increased urgency but also more courage and determined independence. However, Chiron returns to Pisces on Tuesday and we begin to recognize that courage and determination won't be enough without some cooperation. We need to focus on clarifying our message and give others the freedom we're demanding for ourselves. We'll be more productive on Wednesday if we focus on service, instead of advancing our own agendas. The Taurus Moon on Thursday increases our determination but leads to less inclination to cooperate or listen carefully to what others are trying to tell us. Friday's challenge is simply letting go of control and overcoming the determined need to be 'right' — simple, right? By Saturday, however, things seem to fall into place in an entirely different way and we tentatively open the door to better communication and the free flow of ideas.
