Despite the continuing aftermath of the chaotic astrology from these past few weeks, as we come into this weekend the astrology gives us a bit of a break. While we’re still dealing with a lot of intensity with the Moon transiting Aries and an aspect between Pluto and the Sun in the mix, the energy is being expressed positively, empowering us to finally begin to take action on the energy that was seeded during the eclipse and Mercury retrograde season.
*Please note: This is a general forecast describing the collective planetary influences for the week ahead. For a more personalized, nuanced interpretation based on your unique birth chart, follow this link to schedule a one-on-one astrology reading!
Friday (9/8): No major planetary aspects. The Moon is transiting Aries throughout the day today, compelling us to take action where it’s needed most.
Saturday (9/9): Mercury moves forward into Virgo today! Mercury is at home in Virgo, and over the course of the next few weeks Mercury in Virgo will have our minds racing with new ideas, plans, criticisms and goals. Our thoughts and communications become more detailed and precise under this influence making this an excellent transit for highly skilled, analytical work. On the flip side, people become much more judgmental and critical of themselves and others during this time as we are much better able to pick things apart and hone in on anything that is even slightly amiss. Now is an excellent time to get organized and to focus on the details in order to become much better prepared for what lies ahead.
The Sun in Virgo makes a powerful, yet harmonious trine to Pluto in Capricorn today, causing us to become more intense and focused! Now is a time when we can feel more empowered to move forward with our goals. This is an excellent energy for getting to the Truth at the core of an issue and for research of any kind.
Sunday (9/10): No major planetary aspects today. The Moon is in Taurus, grounding us into some much needed chill time. This is a very favorable placement as the moon is considered to be “exalted” in Taurus. This means that the sign of Taurus holds the potential to bring out the highest expression of the energy of the moon. Taurus is a very physical, sensory sign and during the moon’s transit through Taurus, there is a greater need for physical comfort. People often seek out sensory experiences that feel good: rich foods, beauty in nature, material comforts, the arts, etc. Anything that provides a feeling of deep satisfaction and contentment is favored at this time. Taurus is an Earth sign, which tempers the active fire of moon’s previous transit through Aries by causing us to slow down a bit to take in the world around us. Taurus is the sign of pleasure, longevity, and value, and under the moon’s influence in this fixed sign new endeavors will often prove to be stable and long-lasting.
Have a beautiful weekend everyone! Be sure to back on Sunday for the weekday forecast! ☺
