For the week beginning with the Sagittarius 2nd Quarter Moon, September 5 - September 13, 2019:
The overall focus for you this week, Capricorn, is still on your ninth house of religion, higher education, and long-distance travel. The four busy planets in Virgo — Venus, Sun, Mars, and Mercury -- interact this week with your Sagittarius twelfth, your Capricorn first, and your Pisces third house.
The 2nd quarter Moon occurs in your Sagittarius twelfth house of the subconscious and self-undoing. 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, Capricorn, the choice may involve removing yourself from public life for a short while, perhaps on a spiritual retreat.
You’ve had some good fortune or expansion of understanding regarding twelfth 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 house and twelfth houses continue throughout the week as all the planets moving through your Virgo ninth house take turns squaring Jupiter in your twelfth.
Because Jupiter is a beneficial planet, this challenge is not as destructive as it might be with a square to Saturn or Pluto. The problem can show up in the form of trying to do too much, of going overboard somehow. In the twelfth house, you might expand your retreat to the point it interferes with your work or life.
Also this week, the Sun, Mercury, and Mars form stabilizing trine aspects to Saturn in your Capricorn first house (Venus did on the 1st.) You are finding a sense of groundedness and stability in your self, your body, your identity.
You may have encountered limitations, heaviness, or blockages regarding first house matters in the past several months as Saturn has moved through Capricorn. Perhaps this limitation has shown up as health problems or depression or a weight on your sense of self. Things will begin to turn around for you in this area as retrograde Saturn turns direct on September 18.
The Moon enters your Capricorn first 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 Aquarius second house on Monday, September 9, bringing your emotional focus to your self-worth and financial resources.
And finally, those busy Virgo planets take turns opposing Neptune in your Pisces third house - Venus last week, Mercury and the Sun this week, and Mars next week - suggesting tension and confusion or a lack of clarity regarding communication, short trips, or siblings. Is there something that you can communicate more clearly?
The Moon enters your third 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 tenth house of calling, vocation, and public reputation.
