Thursday, Sept. 5 is the day of the First Quarter Moon in Sagittarius, a time when the Sun and Moon are at right angles to each other.
It’s a time when getting what we want can mean giving up something we also want, or already have. The First Quarter Moon is usually the more challenging of the two Quarter Moons because the Moon is growing in strength on its way to the Full Moon. But both Virgo and Sagittarius are what are called Mutable Signs, meaning they are softer and more open to change. Virgo is a ‘thinking’ Earth Sign and Sagittarius is a ‘thinking’ Fire Sign.
Friday is easier going with the Sun and Saturn and Venus and Pluto making some happy vibes in the skies above. This should be especially positive for Virgo and Capricorn. But clear thinking is still mandatory with Mercury in its home sign of Virgo.
And Saturday sees a conflict between Mercury and Neptune as sensible ideas battle imagination and memories from the past. May the best thinking win, especially if you combine it with some sensitive creativity.
Sunday has the potential of a heavenly gift, perhaps good news about a health matter. And that may get some to imagining a better future that seemed further away just the day before.
The work week starts off with a strong Mars making for productivity – especially with physical activities or your vocation.
Tuesday Sept. 10 sees the Sun and Neptune at odds, which can be both a good thing, and also a challenge. Try not to be overly optimistic, or simply bound by old rules.
And the week ends up on Wednesday (for this column) with opportunities for growth, if we can open ourselves to change for the better.
Thursday next week is both a challenge and promises friendly surprise. It’s the week of the Full Moon which is on Saturday, Sept. 14, just after midnight. Emotions are high, so try to feel them and tune in for more, because I’ll be back next Thursday with another edition of Auchterlonie on Astrology right here in The Local.
