Weekly Weather September 29, 2014

Please excuse the late posting as today was a travel day on my vacation.  In lovely Sedona after a week in Phoenix.  Simply stunning land.










The eclipses are coming!  The eclipses are coming!

“I have lived in the pursuit of a vision, both personal and social. Personal: to care for what is noble, for what is beautiful, for what is gentle; to allow moments of insight to give wisdom at more mundane times. Social: to see in imagination the society that is to be created, where individuals grow freely, and where hate and greed and envy die because there is nothing to nourish them. These things I believe, and the world, for all its horrors, has left me unshaken”. Bertrand Russell ~ “Reflections on My Eightieth Birthday” (“Postscript” in his Autobiography)

Last week, as Pluto stationed, we started to bomb Syria.  600 plus volcanoes were erupting around the world. Charlotte Clinton arrived in the world. George Clooney got married.  Several prominent females were beheaded by ISIS as the Finger of God with Venus in Virgo as the leg rolled through. You can’t make this astrology stuff up!


Think of this week as the calm before the storm.


We enter a rocking and rolling eclipse season at the end of this week as the Moon grows in the heavens and moves through the education, career, group and dissolving signs of the collective, Sagtittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces respectively.   It is time to focus on wrapping up your Saturn in Scorpio journey.


During eclipse season, Saturn returns to the degree of his station early March 2014 as well as triggers the eclipses from April 2014.  The Grand Cross forms on the Cardinal axis one more time. We have to move forward now to the next chapter.


Mercury stations on virtually the same degree as the solar eclipse on October 23. Mercury is going retrograde this week. Expect lots and lots and lots of ghosts or folks from your past to whisper secrets in your ear. We just had a gathering of the astrology tribe in Phoenix and oodles of secrets were revealed, intentionally or not.  As we enter the retrograde period, the retrograde promises to be EXCEPTIONALLY juicy with secrets spilled and stories told.  In some cases, the information you receive will cause you to change your approach.  In other cases, the information you receive will point out where to go next. Watch for messages from the winged messenger following and picking up Sun’s desires and letting you know what they are.


Venus enters Libra this week for 25 days of being delicious and kind hearted. She’s very clear that we need more grace, dignity and kindness in the world.  As Russel says “ care for what is noble, for what is beautiful, for what is gentle; and  allow moments of insight to give wisdom.”


Mars forms a grand trine in Fire with Jupiter and Uranus so we can expect some mighty big fires to burn in the world.  Last week’s fire at the Chicago Radar station taking out thousands of flights was the Jupiter/Uranus in Fire trine. Uranus rules air planes and Jupiter is big impact.  Now we add some serious fuel to THAT Mix with the addition of Mars in Sagittarius answering to Jupiter in Leo.  Be careful with candles and don’t leave fires unattended. As the ancients would say “There is too much fire in the sky!”  The great news about that is you can get a great deal accomplished. So focus your intent fiercely and with the power of a laser beam, get cooking so to speak.


Mars in Sagittarius can also be sudden flare ups in anger or violence. Be careful in groups as Uranus rules receiving lots of energy from Mars and Jupiter. Groups can become explosive quickly.  Irritation is part of the deal.  Anger Management techniques will be needed as the photo below demonstrates.

The next few weeks promise to be life altering so get ready.   This is the calm before the storm.


Planetary Highlights

Sun goes from 6:16 degrees Libra to 13:09 degrees Libra.  People can drive you crazy on Tuesday as Sun links up with Eris stirring the discord pot. Sun’s square to Pluto on Saturday encourages you to keep the triangles clean and open.

Mercury goes from 0:53 Scorpio to 2:07 Scorpio RETROGRADE.   Mercury slows to a stop on Saturday October 4, 2014 at 01:02:14 pm EDT and goes retrograde for 21 days.  You will learn of or take a new approach to diet and nurturing on Saturday as Mercury connects with Ceres.

Venus goes from 29:32 degrees Virgo to 8:16 degrees Libra. Venus enters Libra for 26 days of gracious relations on September 29, 2014 at 04:52:18 pm EDT. Venus is inconjunct to Neptune inviting us to make adjustments in our money or finances. There can be considerable emotional or relationships stress over the weekend as Venus has tough aspects.

Mars goes from 10:38 degrees Sagittarius to 15:33 degrees Sagittarius. Mars is active and irritated early in the week with who he has to partner with. Watch for difficult triangles. Mars square to Chiron sets off a serious wounding on Saturday. Mars trine to Uranus on Sunday is rather explosive. No More biting your tongue and putting up with stuff.

Jupiter goes from 15:40 degrees Leo to 16:51 degrees Leo.  Jupiter is quiet this week.

Saturn goes from 20:22 degrees Scorpio to 21:04 degrees Scorpio.  Saturn is quiet this week. He changes his diet and food plan on Sunday.

Uranus goes from 14:51 degrees Aries to 14:34 degrees Aries (retrograde).  Uranus is quiet this week.

Neptune goes from 5:24 degrees Pisces to 5:15 degrees Pisces (retrograde).  Neptune is quiet this week.

Pluto goes from 11:00 degrees Capricorn to 11:02 degrees Capricorn  Pluto is quiet this week.  

Chiron is quiet this week.  Personal relationships can be wounding especially Sunday.

Vesta lets thing go.

Pallas Athena deals with some serious jealousy.

Ceres connects in a difficult manner with the Nodes of destiny.  If you want to grow something different, you have to plant something different. You may find yourself pulling out your plants.

Juno is quiet this week.

Hades stations to go Retrograde on October 5, 2014 at 04:06:14 am EDT. Back one more time into hell!  Gotta clean it out!


Void Moons in the Week Ahead:  When the Moon is Void, it is wise to avoid making important decisions as they tend to be unrealistic, and subject to false starts, errors or unexpected hassles.  Avoid being concerned with things beyond your spiritual center.  It is time for subjective, spiritual and non-materialistic concerns.  Kick back, let life flow, and center yourself.  Connect into your essential oneness with the Universal Forces.

Moon goes void trine to Jupiter on Monday, September 29, 2014 at 11:29:52 pm EDT.  Moon enters Capricorn on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 at 00:41:51 am EDT.  Moon is void all day Tuesday.

Moon goes void Sextile to Saturn on Thursday, October 2, 2014 at 12:19:07 pm EDT.  Moon enters Aquarius on Friday, October 3, 2014 at 04:01:03 am EDT.  Moon is void Thursday afternoon and evening.

Moon goes void Square to Saturn on Saturday, Oct 4 2014 at 02:33:14 pm EDT.  Moon enters Pisces on Sunday, October 5, 2014 at 05:25:12 am EDT.  Moon is void Saturday afternoon and evening.


Moon day Monday September 29, 2014  Moon in Sagittarius goes void trine to Jupiter at 11:29:52 pm EDT.  A day of adventures, Sagittarius Moon runs quickly through the forming Grand Trine in fire, setting off Mars, Uranus and Jupiter.  Today is a mighty busy day! Lots of unexpected changes, twists and turns. Venus pushes off into the world and finds things are perhaps not what she thought they would be. Venus enters Libra at 04:52:18 pm EDT to improve our relations, partnerships and to help us clarify our dreams.

Mars day Tuesday September 30, 2014 Moon is void in Sagittarius all day. There are no exact aspects. Ceres faces an adjustment with the South Node ~ time to let old habits that don’t nurture you leave, go, depart! There can be a burst of jealousy tonight. Watch for fights in groups!

Wednesday Mercury’s day October 1, 2014  Moon enters Capricorn on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 at 00:41:51 am EDT. Moon goes void Sextile to Saturn.  Today is productive but not particularly satisfying. There’s quite a bit of NO energy flowing today.  So if someone says no to you, just count it as their choice but not a rejection of YOU.  New partners arrive late in the day. Enjoy them. Triangles can be problematic today.

Jupiter’s Day Thursday October 2, 2014 Moon goes void Sextile to Saturn on Thursday, October 2, 2014 at 12:19:07 pm EDT. Moon is void Thursday afternoon and evening. Lots of dreams last night which were a bit disturbing. Pay prompt and direct attention to the images. Act on the things that need to be resolved ~ particularly regarding any health matters. Envy rears her jealous head tonight. Notice it and then ignore it. Keep living your best life.

Friday Venus’s Day October 3,  2014  Moon enters Aquarius on Friday, October 3, 2014 at 04:01:03 am EDT. Moon goes void Square to Saturn so matters begun today and tomorrow don’t have a good ending.  Or they don’t get what they want! Moon is productive today offering detached evaluations of situations you now see clearly. They were always there, you just didn’t notice. Now you notice and have to decide what to do next with the knowledge you have. Venus’s square to stationing Hades suggests none of the choices offered particularly appeal to you. And you (or they) are not in the mood for not getting what you (or they) want. Find your group and enjoy hanging out with them.  Why are you doing things you don’t want to do anymore? Venus forms a fast moving inconjunct with Neptune offering a bit of discontent. Liquor hits your system hard today.  Use envy productively today to motivate new adventures.  

Saturn’s Day Saturday October 4,  2014 Moon goes void Square to Saturn on Saturday, Oct 4 2014 at 02:33:14 pm EDT. Moon is void Saturday afternoon and evening.  Today is quite busy with aspects even as Mercury stations and travels retrograde for the next three weeks.  Venus brings you troubling dreams in the morning hours. Sun’s square to Pluto says triangle energy is alive and well. Open up those triangle. Power struggles are part of life. Try to go higher with the energy before you. You release your home or things around your home that no longer work for you.  They are done! Expect a brilliant idea to super charge your brain in the morning. Health matters can take a sudden turn for the worse. To bed with you ~ eclipse seasons bring on the season change colds!  Be inspired to take a new approach to creative problems or people who’ve been stung. Mars square to Chiron brings some serious wounding into your growing consciousness.  Sometimes the wounding things are actually our greatest points of growth. Reframe them so you are feeling more  benevolent towards them. Mercury stations and turns retrograde at  01:02:14 pm EDT at 02°Sc18′.  The Void moon at the end of the day invites you to kick back and go with the flow. Connect with old friends or family member tonight.  Listen for messages from your ghosts!

Sun’s day Sunday October 5, 2014 Moon enters Pisces on Sunday, October 5, 2014 at 05:25:12 am EDT.  The eclipse season starts to Heat Up with Mars coming to Uranus carrying a message of change and action. Saturn links up with Ceres ~ expect angry mothers or irritated female energy that doesn’t feel particularly nurturing. Hades stations to go retrograde so we are plunged back INTO the swamp. What you have been working so hard to clarify, understand or create in relationships starts to move toward critical mass. You’ve been working on your commitment issues since August 2012.  The moment of truth arrives the next few weeks.  Love hurts ~ yes it does and can.  However, you don’t want to sit with the “safe” choice any more. It is time for you to expand your wings and fly!!
