On Thursday, Sept. 12, there are only a few days of summer left before autumn begins with the Vernal Equinox, which happens this year on Sept. 23.
The Moon moves into Pisces in the early morning Thursday, on its way to the full moon on Saturday, just past midnight.
In astrology, squares are usually not good. On Thursday, Mars in Virgo squares Jupiter in Sagittarius. It’s a time when a lot of optimism meets practical discrimination and may leave many frustrated.
Friday the 13th is usually thought of as unlucky, but not this one. Creative ideas are rooted in charm, thanks to a meeting of Mercury and Venus in Virgo – and the Sun, also in Virgo, is in perfect harmony with Pluto in Capricorn, bringing tremendous willpower to self-improvement projects, or anything you really want to do.
At 12:32 a.m. Saturday, just past midnight, the Sun and The Moon stare at each other from opposite points in the sky, and emotion and imaginations intensify. Mars and Neptune do the same an hour later. Sleepwalkers arise! Saturday night sees the Sun move into Aries. A good time for energetic activities.
The weekend draws to a close on a more serious note as Saturn plays the dominant role in the day’s activities.
On last week’s audio podcast I mentioned Saturn is currently retrograde and that all the planets go retrograde from time to time. In fact, right now, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are all in retrograde motion, appearing to move backward in the sky as they are moving slower than Earth around the Sun.
The work week starts off with lots of confidence, which may prove necessary to overcome some of the argumentative thinking and stubborn opposition that presents itself.
Tuesday morning, the Moon moves into Venus ruled by Taurus — a day of creative change and surprises.
And Wednesday, Saturn begins to move direct in the sky early in the morning, having begun its retrograde journey in late April. We can look to career changes and security developments to make a second or third step starting next week. The Lunar aspects on Thursday are all positive.
Thursday next week, Sept. 19, the good energy continues, so come back and read all about it.
Because I’ll be back next Thursday with another edition of Auchterlonie on Astrology right here in The Local.
