The Astrology Forecast for September 20, 2021 – September 26, 2021

The astrology forecast for September 20, 2021 – September 26, 2021, features four aspects (Mercury trine Jupiter, Mercury square Pluto, Venus opposes Uranus, and Mars trines Saturn), the Full Moon in Pisces, and the beginning of Libra season.

Cosmic Highlight:

The main highlight of the week is the Full Moon in Pisces, which happens on Monday. So, get out your snorkel; it’s time to swim.  Your intuitive faculties will be at their peak, so it’s an auspicious time to focus on your dreams, meditation, creativity, and connecting with spirit. Since the Full Moon starts a two-week cycle of releasing and letting go of things that no longer serve you, it’s an excellent time to work on addictions and self-defeating behaviors. Use this cycle wisely.

Now, on with the forecast…

Monday, September 20, 2021

We start the week with a beautiful aspect between Mercury in Libra and Jupiter in Aquarius. This aspect is called a trine, and it’s harmonious, peaceful, and light-hearted energy. Mercury-Jupiter aspects are great for signing documents, finalizing contracts, and focusing on plans for the future. So, your mood should be relatively optimistic throughout the day.

Now, a word to the wise: Take advantage of this aspect while you can. Next week, Mercury turns retrograde, and there will not be another easy aspect to Jupiter, while Mercury is direct, until November 1.

Tuesday, September 21, 2021

The Moon moves through energetic Aries, and during the morning, the Moon opposes challenging Mars in Libra. Expect possible disagreements with others. People will be easily agitated, so you may need to keep a low profile. Later in the day, the Moon sextiles Saturn. Focus on projects and tasks that matter.

Wednesday, September 22, 2021

Trouble is brewing early in the day, as Mercury forms a nasty aspect to Pluto in Capricorn. The most significant difficulty with Mercury square Pluto is that it can easily provoke arguments. Mercury rules the mind, and Pluto is about power. So, when we put these two principles together, there is a tendency to try to get people to think as we do, or for them to try to force us into thinking like them. But, of course, whenever you try to apply pressure (squares) to someone, there becomes a need to stand one’s ground. So, it’s best to avoid controversial or ‘hot button’ topics today. Also, Mercury square Pluto can lead to obsessive thoughts and, in some cases, paranoia.

The best way to work with Mercury square Pluto is through introspection. You can use this energy to dig deep within your soul and discover insights you didn’t know or weren’t aware of before. If worked with correctly, this aspect can be life-altering.

There is a ray of sunshine on Wednesday – the Sun moves out of Virgo and into Libra. Although the tension of Mercury square Pluto and the upcoming Venus in opposition to Uranus may be high, the Sun in Libra may be balanced enough that people respond proactively.

Thursday, September 23, 2021

Last week, Venus formed a gnarly square to Saturn. I wrote about it in last week’s forecast. This week, Venus makes an equally challenging aspect, as she opposes Uranus in Taurus.

On its most basic level, Venus oppose Uranus, which means that upsetting events may occur in relationships, leaving you feeling shaken up and unsettled.  However, Venus oppose Uranus, which indicates that ritualistic everyday experience in relationships will leave you unsatisfied. Of course, suppose we don’t ‘live’ life to the fullest. In that case, it tends to erupt unconsciously, leading to sudden upset and potential breakups (especially if it triggers your natal chart) because Uranus seeks freedom from conventional values it perceives as restricting and monotonous.

On the practical level, it’s important to spice up your relationships on your own. If you find things getting too dull or repetitive, and your relationship is losing its magic, then do what you can to liven it up. This will feed your relationship with new experiences, enriching them with growth opportunities.

Friday, September 24, 2021

Today, the Moon moves through earthy Taurus. It’s an excellent day to focus on financial concerns, improve your self-esteem, and enjoy everyday life. Do something you love, and a cheat meal is recommended.

Saturday, September 25, 2021

Mars forms a productive trine to Saturn. It’s an excellent day to focus on projects and tasks that need focus and discipline. You can also use this energy to re-examine your long-term goals. If you made some that were more ‘dreams’ than actual achievable goals, you could adjust them to something realistic and doable.

Sunday, September 26, 2021

We close the week out with the Moon moving through Gemini. It’s a beautiful day to socialize and connect with friends or your broader social system. It should be a positive day. Make the most of it because Mercury turns retrograde tomorrow!

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of August 23, 2021 – August 29, 2021

The astrology forecast for August 23, 2021 – August 29, 2021, features only three aspects for the week – Venus trine Saturn, Mercury oppose Neptune, and Mercury trine Pluto.

A curious thing happens with the week’s energy, and it’s common with how events occur in the real world.

Have you ever made a decision about an issue in your life or set a boundary, and then experienced self-doubt?

Self-doubt may easily occur this week, with Venus trine Saturn occurring on Monday, followed by Mercury opposing Neptune on Tuesday. So, stay on guard!

The good news is that if you hang in there and stick to your guns, Thursday will prove to be enlightening, and some of you may have an ‘a-ha’ moment or two as Mercury trines Pluto.

So, get out your journals, pens (I recently got some bomb colored Tul pens) and get to work.  You may discover insights into yourself and others that could be a game changer.

Now, on with the forecast…

Monday, August 23, 2021

We start the week with a stabilizing trine between Venus and Saturn.  This aspect is sobering and opens up an opportunity for constructive growth in relationships. You will see your relationships realistically, and therefore, you can confront relationship issues that may be further complicated under other aspects. If you need to create boundaries without potential conflicts or hurt feelings, now would be the time to create them.

Tuesday, August 24, 2021

Whereas yesterday was a sobering and realistic day, today is anything but with Mercury opposing Neptune. So, take Monday’s guidance to heart. 

Mercury oppose Neptune is an ambiguous and unsettling aspect.  Try to communicate as clearly as possible, and only discuss issues of importance, and leave heavy hitting issues for a day with more constructive energies.  Take all information received today with a grain of salt, and make sure to verify information multiple times before making any major decision.  If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.  Avoid stressful situations, if possible.

Wednesday, August 25, 2021

On Wednesday, the Moon moves through energetic and feisty Aries.  You will notice an increase in energy, drive, and determination.  However, be cautious during the late morning hours, because people may get on your last nerve.  Avoid people who have a knack for pushing your buttons.

Thursday, August 26, 2021

The final aspect of the week happens on Thursday, when Mercury forms an insightful trine to Pluto. It’s an excellent day to dig deep into the inner parts of your soul and get in touch with your true feelings and motivations.  You may also want to spend some time alone trying to understand the world around you.

Friday, August 27, 2021

The Moon spends its first full day in earthy Taurus. It’s an excellent day to focus on self-care and personal pleasures. You may want to spend the day at the spa, get a mani and a pedi, get your hair done, or simply enjoy time at the pool (or hot tub if you live in the southern hemisphere). And, of course, a cheat meal may be a scrumptious plan – just make sure it’s decadent.  However, be on guard, this evening the Moon squares Saturn, and you may need to push away negative thoughts if they invade your head space.

Saturday, August 28, 2021

Expect the unexpected during the morning hours as the Moon conjoins unpredictable Uranus. You may act on impulse, but try to do so in situations that have little impact on your life. The energy will stabilize later in the day, as the Moon trines Mars in structured Virgo. Saturday evening may be a momentous date night, as the Moon sextiles romantic and dreamy Neptune.

Sunday, August 29, 2021

The Moon spends the morning hours finishing her monthly trip through Taurus and aspects Jupiter and Mercury. You will be in relatively good spirits and need to reach out and communicate with others. Perhaps, a lovely brunch or spending time with like-minded individuals at a coffee shop will do the trick. Expect a conversation filled and frenetic afternoon with the Moon moving into chatty Gemini.

Astrology Forecast for the Week of August 16, 2021 – August 22, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of August 16, 2021 – August 22, 2021 features two sign changes (Venus and the Sun), four aspects (Mercury conjunct Mars, Sun oppose Jupiter, Mercury trine Uranus, and Mars trine Uranus), a Full Moon in Aquarius and Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus.

Whew, I may have carpal tunnel syndrome after listing the cosmic energy of the week. It’s going to be one hell of a busy week, that’s for sure.

Let’s dive right in…

Monday, August 16, 2021

The week begins with a sign change for Venus as she moves out of Virgo, the sign of her fall and into Libra, one of the two signs she rules.

While Venus is in Libra, you will seek fairness, balance, and equality in your relationships. If you feel your relationships are too one-sided, you should seek an even playing field.  Now, under other Venus placements, this may create more tension and anxiety because people have difficulty adjusting to new relationship dynamics, but Libra is tactful, diplomatic, and seeks accords. So, this is an opportune time to seek relationship changes and get the results you need.  Venus remains in Libra until September 10.

Tuesday, August 17, 2021

On Tuesday, the Moon moves through Sagittarius.  The morning hours may arrive with a side dose of brain fog, as the Moon squares confusing Neptune in Pisces. However, the clouds should clear as the Moon sextiles Jupiter and trines the Sun during the afternoon hours. This evening, do something you enjoy, and that uplifts your spirit.

Wednesday, August 18, 2021

Expect a high-energy day as Mercury conjoins Mars in Virgo. It’s an excellent day for mental activities and tasks that require lengthy mental focus.  Under this aspect, you will easily accomplish most of your pursuits.  However, there is a problematic side to Mercury-Mars that you should note.  Since Mercury rules the mouth, there is a tendency to speak one’s mind without filters. This could lead to tense conversations and possible defensive posturing from others.  So, make sure you put a watch on your tongue, because Mars doesn’t understand how to quit while ahead.

Thursday, August 19, 2021

Thursday is the highlight of the week, as the Sun opposes Jupiter. Now oppositions are usually aspects of tension and agitation, but how agitated could the cosmic Santa Claus get?  So, the bulk of the problematic aspects that involve Jupiter are minimized by his natural benevolence. Therefore, the only requirement for the Sun opposed to Jupiter, is to avoid excessiveness and attempt to contain its energy.

Sun in opposition to Jupiter is an aspect that fills you with self-confidence and provides you with the energy to pursue your goals. Therefore, you will engage with others easily and usually get what you want. Additionally, you will feel optimistic about the future, and your positive attitude will spread infectiously to those around you.  In opposition to Jupiter, the Sun also signifies that matters you have waited on to come to fruition will begin to manifest.

Later in the day, Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus.  This station will primarily affect people with planets around 11-17 degrees of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius). You will feel the urge to create change in your life, and there may be a feeling of restlessness when faced with the reality of your responsibilities.  Try to manage your ambivalence by finding the middle ground between your duties and your desire to try new things.

Friday, August 20, 2021

On Friday, we have an exciting trine between Mercury in Virgo and Uranus in Taurus. Since Uranus recently stationed retrograde on Thursday, this aspect may be more potent than it normally is, so pay attention to the events of the day more closely than you normally would.

Mercury trine Uranus electrifies the mind and gets it going. You may find a solution to problems that you have failed to resolve with conventional solutions. It’s an excellent day to break your usual routine and experience new things – this could be a new restaurant, new activity, or even a new genre of music. Opening to possibilities and new experiences is essential while this aspect is active. Further, your intuition will be off the chains, so pay attention to your gut instincts.

Saturday, August 21, 2021

The Moon moves through social Aquarius throughout the day on Saturday. It’s a fantastic day to spend time with friends and reach out to your social circle. Connections with others will prove to be important.

Sunday, August 22, 2021

Sunday is the biggest day of the week, astrologically speaking. Mars forms an energetic trine to Uranus, a Full Moon occurs in Aquarius, and the Sun moves out of Leo and into Virgo.

Let’s start with Mars trine Uranus.

Mars trine Uranus is an aspect of breaking free of conventional norms and taking a risk. As such, your inhibitions will be lowered, and you will have plenty of energy to embark on new adventures, goals, and activities. So if you have felt hesitant about doing something (and hopefully it’s legal), afraid, or too cautious to make a move, now is the time to do it.

Next up, you may feel a bit of DeJa’Vu, because this is our second Full Moon in Aquarius this year. So, we get the opportunity to run this one back.

This Full Moon cycle is excellent for breaking through stagnant situations (especially Karmic ones), developing better friendships, expanding your social circle, and opening new experiences. In addition, the Full Moon joins forces with Jupiter to provide some extra goodness with a cherry on top.

Later on Sunday, the Sun moves out of Leo and into Virgo.  Virgo is an earth sign concerned with the physical world, natural laws, and how the real world works.  Therefore, Virgo is associated with jobs, tasks, responsibilities, and rituals.

In the ancient world, one of the chief associations of Virgo was its rulership over servants. Although we are not servants in a technical sense, we should take care of ourselves, manage our lives, and be productive members of society. So, while we are in Virgo season, we must look at the areas of our lives that need management, repairs, and nurture the areas that need it.  Making our lives more efficient helps us access the positive dimensions of the sign, and in doing so, we gain control and mastery over day-to-day living.

See you next week!
