After a rather intense workweek, with Jupiter opposing Uranus for its third and final time and the deeply revealing Pluto stationing to move direct, we’re finally coming into some calmer, more harmonious energy as we move into this weekend! Venus will come into opposition with Neptune on Friday, and while this energy is ripe for deception and delusion in relationships, it’s also a wonderful energy for developing deep connections with others that are more loving, compassionate, dreamy and romantic. Venus will also be coming into a harmonious trine with Pluto this weekend, driving our connection to go even deeper and amping up the passion in our relationships!
Friday (9/29): Venus in the pragmatic sign of Virgo will come into opposition with mystical Neptune in Pisces this weekend, causing us all to become more deeply empathic and connected in our close friends and romantic partnerships. While this energy is great for a dreamy, romantic night out or spiritual exploration with a partner, it can also cause us to become more prone to deception, fogginess and confusion in our relationships. Right now it is more difficult to see things for what they truly are, especially in our close, personal relationships. This energy may also play out through martyrdom and escapism in relationships. Venus in opposition to Neptune may also cause trouble when it comes to accurately assessing our finances, so making major purchases this weekend is not advised! Because we are not able to see things clearly, we are much more prone to being swindled into accepting offers and contracts that are too good to be true!
Mercury moves out of its home sign of Virgo and into the more balanced sign of Libra today, causing us to be less critical, detail oriented and judgmental in favor of greater consideration for the feelings and viewpoints of others. While this energy can be excellent for contracts and negotiations, Mercury in Libra can also have difficulty with decision-making. There is a tendency over these next couple of weeks to place too much emphasis on fairness and balance, often to the extent of favoring the opinions of others over our own self-interest. The trick here is to remain considerate of others while still maintaining awareness of our own needs— the right decision will serve to integrate both sides, not just one or the other.
Saturday (9/30): No major planetary aspects. The Moon will be transiting the enigmatic sign of Aquarius, making mostly harmonious aspects throughout the day today.
Sunday (10/1): Mars in practical, Earthy Virgo will come into a beautiful trine with the newly direct Pluto in Capricorn today— merging our willpower with our passions in a way that is grounded in reality. This aspect is wonderful for allowing us the energy to see things clearly in order to take action from a place of Truth. Our deepest motivations may be revealed today as we are able to see through the lies we tell ourselves in order to maintain the status quo. This deeply transformative aspect can ignite our passion, intensity and sexuality and initiate healing and regeneration on a deep and profound level. This aspect is great for making positive changes and initiating focused and intensive new action.
Have a beautiful week! Be sure to check back on Sunday for the weekday forecast! J
