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, Sagittarius, is still on your tenth house of calling, vocation, or public reputation. The four busy planets in Virgo — Venus, Sun, Mars, and Mercury -- interact this week with your ruler Jupiter in your first, your Capricorn second, and your Pisces fourth house.

The 2nd quarter Moon occurs in your Sagittarius first house of identity, appearance, and health. 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, Sagittarius, this choice likely has to do with your identity, health, or sense of self as relates to your calling or public reputation.

You’ve likely had some good fortune or expansion regarding first 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 first house and tenth house continue throughout the week as all the planets moving through your Virgo tenth house take turns squaring your ruling planet Jupiter in your first.

Because Jupiter is a beneficial planet, this challenge is not as 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, of going overboard somehow. Maybe having too many irons in the fire at the expense of your health?

Also this week, the Sun, Mercury, and Mars form stabilizing trine aspects to Saturn in your Capricorn second house (Venus did on the 1st.) You are finding a sense of groundedness and stability in the area of your self-worth and finances.

You may have encountered limitations, heaviness, or blockages regarding second house matters in the past several months as Saturn has moved through Capricorn. Perhaps this limitation has affected your finances or your personal resources. Things will begin to turn around for you in this area as retrograde Saturn turns direct on September 18.

The Moon enters your Capricorn second 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 third house of communication and siblings 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 fourth house of home and family - Venus last week, Mercury and the Sun this week, and Mars next week - suggesting tension and confusion or a lack of clarity regarding your home, roots, or your family of origin. Perhaps a parent is hospitalized or incapacitated somehow?

The Moon enters your fourth 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 eleventh house of friends and wider networks.
