The equinox has perfected, Fall (Spring in the Southern Hemisphere) has arrived, the Sun is in Libra, and Mercury is moving direct though slowly. We can still make progress on new projects if we measure our words carefully and check every detail. We are in a “clearing out” period until the Libra New Moon. After that, a completely new cycle begins in earnest.
Here is a sample of our Weekly Forecasts:
2016-09 W40: Forecasts for Week 40 of 2016
Sunday we begin to feel the Sun / Jupiter conjunction of Monday. Both Sunday and Monday are extremely “lucky” days, so grab it all as best you can. But please do understand that much of your “luck” will come from “cleaning house” and leaning out your life. Eliminate the superfluous. Tuesday is a “day off” day, and especially good for “housecleaning.” (Most of the week is good for that.)
Wednesday is another cleanup day, and much of Wednesday is about “hard work.” Clear out anything that is not serving you, and wrap up old project that you wish to no longer address. Use this “hump day” to “clear the space” for something new and better. Thursday is much like Tuesday, and (again), we emphasize cleaning out and wrapping up. Friday is a feel good day, and some remarkable insights can come your way. Write it all down. The New Moon brings a fresh start, and this can be an incredible date night if you can get past an annoying glitch (or two). Saturday is full of glitches. Enjoy what you can and ignore the rest as much as you can. However, some key issue involving education or health (or both) may need to be addressed. This is a busy week, and it sets the stage for the new major cycle that begins with next week.
The Sun joins Jupiter tomorrow, and for many people this is one of the “luckiest” periods of the year. Aries feels this nearly as strongly as Libra, but for Cancer or Capricorn it may be a bit odd. Gemini, Aquarius, and Leo do well also, and we would add in Sagittarius except they are dealing with the twin presence of Mars (the “lesser malefic”) and Saturn (the “greater malefic”).
Some people may feel a “glitch” about 1:30 PM CDT but after that expect smooth sailing. With Mercury direct, the change of seasons past, and an “Opportunity Period” per Jim Shawvan, we think this is an excellent period to “get things done.” Stick to housecleaning chores due to a waning moon and know that you might find an important “lost object” (or opportunity) during this time. This is also an excellent time to obtain great deals on items you need to buy (but avoid buying some glitzy thing that will sit around unused).
Mars semisquare Black Moon Lilith creates a sense of “wildness” to this day (as well as the preceding Saturday and following Monday). For some people, this is intensely passionate sex. For sexually oriented businesses, this represents a turning point of some kind. For others, it is just “weird.” Chiron biquintile Hygeia can lead to amazing breakthroughs in healthcare (think pharmaceuticals, stem cell therapy, and similar). Jupiter quincunx Ceres tells us that diets started at this time may encounter difficulties and need to be modified or restarted later or both.
One source described tonight, and Monday night, as the best “date nights of the year.” We agree!
Your Birthday Today: For Libras born between September 21st and October 1st, inclusive, this may be one of the “luckiest” years of your life. If you can avoid over-drinking (alcohol or the use of other mood altering drugs), over-eating, or over-eating, this may be one of the best years of your life. Since, at times, you will encounter some difficulties “getting things done,” you will need this “luck.” Also be careful to avoid unproductive tantrums and outbursts of temper from yourself or others. You may have a powerful sexual experience or relationship this year.
Sun joins Jupiter today, and we would expect “things” to go well. Pluto stations direct, and this is a bit like the Mercury direct station for Police, Military, and Intelligence agencies: it causes a shakeup. Shakeups likely come to the financial markets as well since Pluto routinely affects them, particularly if changes to the tax laws are announced or companies announce that they have made an “error in their bookkeeping.”
Similar to yesterday, another source described today (Monday) as “the luckiest day of the year.” We agree. Sun conjunct Jupiter CAN happen on a bad day (and has), but this particular one should be good for most people (except maybe Capricorns and possibly Cancers). We expected Fire and Air signs to benefit most (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini).
Today has two outer planet / asteroid biquintiles and two outer planet / asteroid noviles. The ideas flowing to you will be nothing short of amazing. Capture all that you can. Uranus squares Vesta, and surprises and new ideas disrupt traditions (yet another marker that we think signals a reset or “adjustment” in the financial markets). Expect the unexpected today.
I like what Tara G has to say about this day, also.
Your Birthday Today:
As we mentioned yesterday, this is a powerful year for you. Finances may be VERY strange for you. Chances are good for large amounts of money to both “come in” and “go out.” Try to save SOME of it if at all possible. You will need it for some rainy day. If you are police, military, or a member of an intelligence agency, do not be surprised if you change employers this year, or at least change positions within your current employer.
Sunday and Monday’s “good luck” vanishes with Mars’ entry into Capricorn. This is unpleasant for many people, but Sagittarius tends to breath a sigh of relief (unless the particular Sagittarian has Capricorn planets, as many do). The Moon is void most of the day, from about 4 AM CDT until about 5 PM CDT. Stick to routine, and expect the typical waning Moon type of Moon v/c. (This is VERY good for breaking bad habits or “weaning” someone or something off of something else (or someone else).) The Moon’s trine to Mars after it enters Capricorn brightens spirits a little, and this is an excellent time for vigorous exercise.
Neptune makes (quad-undecile?) aspects to both Astraea (law, lawyers, and legal system) and Hygeia (health, healthcare, and healthcare providers) on this date. The Undecile aspects are “Eleventh Harmonic” (aka “11th Harmonic”) and not well understood at this time. My guess is that they provide a “gateway” of insights into the future similar to the novile series (which often bring us new skills that are subtle but change our lives). That happens on this date; something powerful and important happens on this mostly v/c day. We can easily miss just how powerful and important it is. (Think of it as a bit like a “reverse void”: we shrug off or ignore something as “nothing will come of this” but it turns out to be extraordinarily important.) Alice Portman write about it “some” on this page. We also like the entry at Tribe which states this:
“Comprising the eleventh harmonic,wherein the 360 degree circle is divided by eleven and then multiplied, this group of astrological aspects consists of the waxing undecile with an angular value of 32’44, the waxing biundecile of 65’27,the waxing triundecile of 98’11, the waxing quadriundecile of 130’55….[emphasis added]” We will not duplicate the entire analysis here (that would likely violate copyright!) but do add this important quote from the same source: “If earthly law is a reflection of higher spiritual law, perhaps these eleventh harmonic aspects symbolize a karmic “reorganization of debt” in the form of Divine Grace,mercy,compassion when one is staggering under the load of his burdens of fate,provided,however,that one “petitions the spiritual court” through sincere prayer. ”
Some time after September 22nd, “things” will become VERY different for all of us! We will be in a “clearing out” period until the New Moon of September 30th. That New Moon is dominated by a Thor’s Hammer pattern, and certain people, places, or things can go “boom” at that time. A powerful “reset” is in progress. Expect the unexpected!
