A Karmic Alignment Invites Us to Let Go

your weekly astrological forecast for september 2 – 8

The South Node and Saturn are exactly conjunct all week. This is a karmic alignment that invites us to clean up debts and encumbrances, and to let go of worn-out structures that no longer serve. Five planets continue to shine in Virgo, helping us get our lives in good order. A great deal of work can be done with efficiency and focused attention.

The Moon is void of course almost all day on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, making it is difficult for things to come together. Meetings might be unproductive, with decisions being unclear or having to be re-thought. It will be best to apply yourself to routine tasks or take a walk or read a book. This is a week to plan wisely to make the most of the varied energies.

stick to routines, and engage your imagination

Monday is yet another day, like many recently, when the Moon is void of course for almost the whole day (1:33 a.m. – 4:35 p.m. PDT). Stick to insignificant, routine tasks, and don’t waste your time on meetings and connections that will not deliver. A Venus-Jupiter square is the main aspect of the day. This is an optimistic aspect. Be careful not to promise more than you can deliver.

Tuesday and Wednesday the Moon is in Scorpio, a time when feelings run deep, and when we need more solitude for pondering serious matters of concern. Tuesday is loaded with aspects; expect it to be an active day. Mercury is conjunct Sun and Mars, giving energy to push plans and projects forward. Be bold and courageous, and step into your great work.

Yet again on Wednesday the Moon is void of course all day from 3:58 a.m. through 8:08 p.m. PDT, so stick to insignificant tasks and refrain from meetings and decisions that will likely be a waste of time. Venus opposes Neptune, and aspect that may cast doubt on what we value, and yet it can engage our imagination. See the beauty and sweetness in the day, or add some to what you are doing.

vision, optimism, and a hint of dazzle leaves you open to exploration

On Thursday a Mercury-Saturn trine in earth signs, against the backdrop of a Sagittarius Moon, gives us the ability to think clearly and make sound plans and decisions with vision and optimism. The Moon makes edgy squares to the Sun and Mars later in the day. The evening commute may be challenging. Manage the fussiness you may feel, and put your attention on explorations such as future travel plans.

Against the backdrop of a day when the Moon is void of course all day (from 9:03 a.m. through tomorrow at 3:37 a.m. PDT), there are several key aspects. The Sun in Virgo is trine Saturn in Capricorn, giving a solid foundation for our work. Two aspects draw us deeper into relationship: Venus-trine-Pluto, and Uranus-trine-Juno. A Venus-Neptune opposition adds some dazzle, and a desire to dance. It is Friday, Viernes, the day ruled by Venus, the planet symbolizing love. If you are in a relationship, take it deeper. If you are not, make yourself available for a social evening with friends. Who knows who you may meet with Uranus-trine-Juno (the planet of the mate).

a weekend of hard work and powerful potential, with some surprises

The weekend is framed for work and productivity with the Moon settling into Capricorn tropically from early Saturday morning through Monday afternoon. We may veer off track, or at least see another way to do things as a result of the Mercury-Neptune opposition and a Moon-Uranus trine.  Set out to get a lot accomplished, but allow yourself the freedom and space for something unexpected in your day.

Our goals are big for Sunday, buoyed by a Sun-Jupiter square. The Moon is in Capricorn, making it a day focused on work. Aspects are numerous. The Moon, Saturn, and the South Node align exactly in the morning, and the Moon, Mercury, and Pluto align exactly in the evening. These alignments are strong and powerful. At the end of the weekend we may have intense conversations and strong thoughts about plans and goals for the week ahead. We will be held by the strong energy of a Mars-Saturn trine at the end of the day. This is not a light, relaxing Sunday. Rather, it is a day for hard work and manifesting intentions, so lean in and make the best of these strong energies at play.

the week in short

Monday: Moon VoC 1:33 – 4:35 PDT. Be careful not to promise more than you can deliver, and focus on insignificant, routine tasks.
