ASTRO*TIME LINE – September 11 – 26, 2011

The Full Moon arrives in splendor with a clear trine of Mercury and Pluto late in the evening. You may see and hear things that are dramatic, but, know that clarity and deep truths are the key phrases here, and trust your intuition. The real question here is: are you willing to cut loose of those old habits, because, the Universe is calling you to do so. Let it GO!

The moon opposite Venus on Monday the 12th suggests that you may have to release some of your cash in order to achieve this new level of freedom. Just move through this energy quickly, because the energy of Aries quickly aligns with your new vision. The Aries moon extends and energizes the peak energy of the Full Moon; maintain your momentum throughout the week.

Wednesday the 14th, Mercury trine Jupiter again presents opportunities for those who are ready and willing to take a chance on their dream. Venus enters one of her favorite signs, Libra in the evening. Elegant dinners and beautiful clothing are all emphasized as Venus travels through her domicile of planetary rulership. And, although Venus is happy in Libra, she is NOT lazy; rather, this is an excellent time to cultivate both personal and professional relationships.

Thursday the 15th, the moon enters Taurus and perfect timing to manifest your full moon intention. Pluto stations into direct motion on Friday the 16th which further clears the way for your true freedom and soul growth.

As Venus opposes Uranus on Saturday the 17thwe can further gain perspective and objectivity. This planetary duo is notorious for incomprehensible romantic attractions, also. Unfortunately, this is sometimes a recipe for disaster!

Enjoy, indulge, even revel, but, don’t bank you life on this interlude; especially because Venus squares Pluto the very next day, on Sunday the 18th. With this aspect, the Love Goddess has to pay her dues through jealousy and confrontation. Mars entering Leo on this day also heats up the ego, and everybody wants to marvel at the lions’ roar, not fear it. Finally, with Mars in Leo and Venus in Libra, we have a sextile aspect of opportunity and both of these personal planets are lively and in their strengths.

The last quarter moon on Tuesday the 20th provokes our thoughts and demands balance. We have mixed feelings about recent developments; however, know that this is a time of protection and renewal.

Friday the 23rd is our sacred day of the Autumnal Equinox. Now, light and color come into balance as do the circumstances of life. Since its Friday, take time in the afternoon or evening to honor the day as a time of harvest and gratitude for all that this magnificent earth provides us.

Sunday the 25th unfolds with Mercury entering Libra (challenge is: can you make a decision?) and Sun opposes Uranus (as the Universe conspires to surprise and confuse you with unexpected events!)

Welcome the Libran New Moon of September 27th. More to come as we next explore the world of Libra: Balance, Elegance, Decision making, Equality, and Justice.
