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.

Gemini Rising

Gemini Rising

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

The overall focus for you this week, Gemini, is still on your fourth house of home and family. The four busy planets in Virgo — Venus, Sun, Mars, and your ruling planet Mercury -- interact this week with planets in your seventh, eighth, and tenth houses.

The 2nd quarter Moon occurs in your Sagittarius seventh house of relationships. 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, Gemini, this choice likely has to do with your primary relationships, either intimate or professional (business partners or clients.) Something may need to change in this area as it relates to your home or family life.

You’ve likely had some good fortune or expansion regarding seventh 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 fourth and seventh houses continue throughout the week as all the planets moving through your Virgo fourth house take turns squaring Jupiter in your seventh. 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 for belonging and acceptance that you’ve said or done too much, going a bit overboard.

Also this week, the Sun, Mercury, and Mars in your fourth house form earthy trine aspects to Saturn in your Capricorn eighth house of other people’s money (Venus did on the 1st.) Perhaps an inflow of money from a gift or loan or actual physical assistance from other people has helped to stabilize your home or family life.

You may have encountered difficulties or blockages in the past several months as Saturn has moved through your eighth house, perhaps regarding a loan, or taxes, or an inheritance. Things will begin to turn around for you in this area as retrograde Saturn turns direct on September 18.

The Moon enters your eighth 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 regarding home and family or roots 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 ninth house of religion, higher education, and long journeys on Monday, September 9, bringing your emotional focus to these matters.

And finally, those busy Virgo planets take turns opposing Neptune in your Pisces tenth house of career and public reputation - Venus last week, Mercury and the Sun this week, and Mars next week - suggesting tension and confusion in professional relationship

The Moon enters your seventh 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, much of emphasis on Virgo will begin to shift as your ruling planet Mercury and Venus move into your Libra second house.
