Yet another rabbit hole!

Hi there!

Welcome to my blog. I post daily (more or less) forecasts of the general astrological weather and weekly horoscopes by rising sign. Occasionally I post more in-depth articles about longer term planetary transits.

For the week beginning with the Sagittarius 2nd Quarter Moon, September 5 - September 13, 2019:

The overall focus for you this week, Aries, is still on your sixth house of work and service. The four busy planets in Virgo — Venus, Sun, your ruling planet Mars, and Mercury -- interact this week with planets in your ninth, tenth, and twelfth houses.

The 2nd quarter Moon occurs in your Sagittarius ninth house of religion, higher education, and long-distance travel. The Moon is halfway between new and full, marking a choice-point, a place where we need to make decisions and take action.

The quarter can be an uncomfortable time. For you, Aries, the choice may have to do with your spiritual life or education as it relates to your job or service you provide to others.

You’ve likely had some good fortune or expansion regarding ninth house matters in the past few months as beneficent Jupiter has moved through his home of Sagittarius. Now is time for some adjustment.

The difficulties between the ninth and sixth houses continue throughout the week as all the planets moving through your Virgo sixth house take turns squaring Jupiter in your ninth. Because Jupiter is a beneficial planet, this challenge is not destructive as it might be with a square to Saturn or Pluto. The tension can show up in the form of trying to do too much or say too much. Perhaps you feel such a strong need to express your opinions that you’ve said too much, going a bit overboard and affecting your job.

Also this week, the Sun, Mercury, and your ruling planet Mars form stabilizing trine aspects to Saturn in your Capricorn tenth house (Venus did on the 1st.) You have a sense of groundedness and stability in the area of your career, vocation, or public standing — work you are called to do in the world as opposed to a job.

You may have encountered limitations, heaviness, or blockages regarding your vocation in the past several months as Saturn has moved through your tenth. Perhaps this limitation has affected your ability to do your day job or relationships with co-workers. Things will begin to turn around for you in this area as retrograde Saturn turns direct on September 18.

The Moon enters your Capricorn tenth house on Saturday, September 7, bringing emotional focus to this area.

Soon after each planet in Virgo completes its contact with Saturn, it moves into flowing contact with Pluto. Venus, Mercury, and the Sun trine Pluto this week, allowing to come to light some issues that have been repressed or hidden. You can process this information now and use it for positive transformation, even if you could not face it before.

The Moon enters your eleventh house of friends and wider networks on Monday, September 9, bringing your emotional focus to your broader social life.

And finally, those busy Virgo planets take turns opposing Neptune in your Pisces twelfth house of the subconscious and self-undoing. This opposition suggests tension, confusion, or a lack of clarity regarding your day job or service you provide to others.

The Moon enters your twelfth house on Thursday, September 12, bringing emotional focus to this foggy realm. Then the Pisces Full Moon takes place here on Saturday, September 14, fully illuminating the mists.

Later that day, the emphasis will begin to shift away from Virgo as Mercury and Venus move into your Libra seventh house of relationships.
