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.

Taurus Rising

Taurus Rising

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

The overall focus for you this week, Taurus, is still on your fifth house of creativity and children. The four busy planets in Virgo — your ruling planet Venus, Sun, Mars, and Mercury -- interact this week with planets in your eighth, ninth, and eleventh houses.

The 2nd quarter Moon occurs in your Sagittarius eighth house of other people’s money and end-of-life matters. 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, Taurus, this choice likely has to do with money coming from other people, such as loans, inheritance, or refunds. Something may need to change in this area as it affects your children or your creativity.

You’ve likely had some good fortune or expansion regarding eighth 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 your fifth and eighth houses continue throughout the week as all the planets moving through your Virgo fifth house take turns squaring Jupiter in your eighth. 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, going a bit overboard.

Also this week, the Sun, Mercury, and Mars form stabilizing trine aspects to Saturn in your Capricorn ninth house of religion, higher education, or long journeys (Venus did on the 1st.) You have a sense of groundedness and stability in this area.

You may have encountered limitation, heaviness, or blockages in your ninth house in the past several months as Saturn has moved through this area. Things will begin to turn around for you in this area as retrograde Saturn turns direct on September 18.

The Moon enters your ninth 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 tenth house on Monday, September 9, bringing your emotional focus to your profession, vocation, or public reputation.

And finally, those busy Virgo planets take turns opposing Neptune in your Pisces eleventh house of friends and wider networks - Venus last week, Mercury and the Sun this week, and Mars next week - suggesting tension and confusion or a lack of clarity regarding relationships with friends or a group to which you belong.

The Moon enters your eleventh 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 your ruling planet Venus move into your Libra sixth house of work and service.
