The astrology forecast for September 13, 2021 – September 19, 2021 features three aspects (Sun oppose Neptune, Sun trine Pluto, and Venus square Saturn), and Mars leaves Virgo and enters Libra.
This week, Venus continues to move through Scorpio. Any planet moving through the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) will reactivate the Saturn square Uranus in the cosmos, which is still within orb. This reactivation is called translation of light.
Let’s break this down.
Venus in Scorpio reflects a desire for emotional depth and closeness in relationships. In the sign of the scorpion, she likes to get things out in the open and prefers honesty over civility. Since Venus is in detriment, Scorpio is not her natural habitat. She is unhappy there, but she would rather know the truth regardless of how displeasing it is to her.
Venus will square Saturn first. Saturn is our limitations, boundaries, and responsibilities. Venus square Saturn is a frustrating combo that can cause self-doubt and insecurities. It can lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness, and people often make ‘easy’ decisions that please others rather than satisfy themselves.
Venus will oppose Uranus next week, which has its own challenges. Uranus likes independence and freedom, and often shakes things up if he feels constricted and confined. Venus oppose Uranus is tense and wants to break free, which can lead to upsetting events in relationships – if they are not managed effectively.
I’m going to be blunt – it’s my trademark. Venus mixed up with Saturn square Uranus can feel like a roller-coaster ride at the state fair. It has many ups and downs. However, working with this energy ‘proactively’ means you have to manage your need for closeness with your need for independence. You may need to have difficult conversations with people, stand your ground, and be flexible enough to consider the needs of others. The more inflexible you are, the more difficult this may be.
Further, some relationships may end up irreparable. If that’s the case, the relationship did not have the ingredients necessary to stay the course. And, although endings are complex and sometimes emotionally tumultuous, they may be necessary for the growth of your soul.
Now, on with the forecast…
Monday, September 13, 2021
The Moon moves through spirited Sagittarius throughout the day and forms a friendly sextile to Mercury during the morning hours. It’s an excellent time to share ideas and visions for the future and think outside the box. However, the Moon squares Neptune during the evening hours, so expect the fog clouds of confusion to move in.
Tuesday, September 14, 2021
First, on Tuesday, the Sun opposes Neptune in Pisces. Sun oppose Neptune is a highly confusing aspect, and it can lead to moments of uncertainty. It’s best not to make decisions under this influence, because you may end up questioning your choices. Another thing to note, while the Sun opposes Neptune, is that you may feel overwhelmed by life and your current situation. Try to avoid falling into a victim mindset because it won’t resolve your issues; it simply feeds your anxiety.
Later in the day, Mars moves out of Virgo and into Libra. Mars doesn’t like the sign of Lira much because he is in detriment in the sign of the scales. Mars wants to act, and when he is in Libra, he must consider the thoughts and ideas of others. Of course, this is frustrating for the War God. While Mars is in Libra, it’s necessary to pause before acting and fairly do things, keeping the needs of others in mind when making decisions. Mars remains in Libra until October 31, 2021.
Wednesday, September 15, 2021
The Moon spends its first full day in responsible Capricorn. During the morning hours, the Moon trines Uranus, and you may feel a little restless, especially if you have a lot to accomplish. You may want to honor Uranus by taking a few breaks to focus on more exciting things than daily repetitive drudgery. Later in the day, the Moon squares Mercury and minor communication snafus may occur. Try to clean things up as quickly as possible.
Thursday, September 16, 2021
Whereas Monday and Tuesday were not the best days to make a significant decision, Thursday is much better because the Sun forms a lovely trine to Pluto. Sun-Pluto aspects are times when you need to stand in your personal power and focus on the areas of your life that you have control over – and whether you believe it, that’s most of them. Sun trine Pluto helps you get beneath the surface and discover ways to improve your life and course-correct if necessary. So press in and press on!
Friday, September 17, 2021
We may make personal changes that rattle the cages of others, and they may disagree with our decisions. That may occur today with Venus squaring Saturn. You may go through feelings of self-doubt, but make sure your feelings are your own and not influenced by others. You may feel that those around you do not understand you or your motives. Additionally, you may need to question whether your personal needs are being met in your relationships.
Saturday, September 18, 2021
The Moon moves through social Aquarius and forms positive aspects to Mercury and Jupiter. It’s an excellent day to socialize and connect with friends. Conversations should be lively, and there is a spirit of optimism in the air.
Sunday, September 19, 2021
The Moon moves through dreamy Pisces and forms a lovely trine to Venus. It’s a wonderful day for some love and romance. Spend some time connecting to your significant other. For the singles, it’s a good day to kick back and enjoy music, movies, and meditation.
If you had relationship issues earlier in the week, this is an excellent time to make peace and resolve them.
See you next week!
