#129 September 26 - October 2: Venus in Libra and Mercury Goes Direct in Virgo

Greetings,


Ingrid has new eyelashes which sends Scott into a tangent about Venus placements and beauty.


An appropriate topic for the week, since Venus begins transit in the Sign it rules, Libra.


The opportunity here is to find peace in your relationships by being graceful in your approach to your partners.


Mercury Retrograde ends, which on the surface sounds good, but in reality is like train wreck, as it will be at the same degree for over a week.


Continue to take your time, give yourself space to get to where you need to go by the time you need to get there, and give yourself the space to articulate your thoughts before you spit them out of your mouth.

#129 September 26 - October 2: Venus in Libra and Mercury Goes Direct in Virgo



The themes this week are…


1. Authenticity

2. Relationships

3. Peace


Venus begins transit through Libra, the Sign it rules, for the purpose of bringing peace to your relationships.


In order for there to be peace, you must be authentic in what you can give, as well as authentic in terms of what you want to receive in return.


Mercury ends its retrograde transit in Virgo, giving you time to analyze and process your health, diet, and daily routine, for the purpose of finding a more efficient flow in life.


The need to find an efficient flow in life is essential especially as Saturn begins is 12-day exact Squaring of Uranus, which will undoubtedly throw some wrenches in the plan. However, do not fret. Forge ahead. Recognize that restriction brings rebellion, and like the contractions of a birthing mother, no matter how difficult, can breathe new life into the world.


What new life would you like to bring into your world?


If you are curious how these, or any other transits are affecting you directly, I encourage you to reach out to me for a reading.


Wishing you all the best through the week, as you ride the planetary waves!



MONDAY, September 26


The Sun in Libra Opposite Jupiter Retrograde in Aries


Are you being authentic in your self-expression, so that those you are in relationship with know what you want and what they are getting in return?


When you are being authentic in your relationships there is a greater opportunity for peace.


If you are not clear about what you want, or your partner is not clear about what they want, how can you give each other what each of you want?


Though the authenticity may be challenging at first because you want to refrain from creating a potential riff between you and your partner, eventually you will grow tired of pretending. At the point that the facade comes down, the conflict will ensue.


By being authentic upfront you are able to more clearly negotiate the terms of the deal and a bridge can be built.


Of course there is also the possibility that you end up realizing that you are too far apart to build a bridge, but at least if you are being authentic with each other, you can walk away in peace.


If you fail to be authentic up front you create bad blood in the relationship.


When: September 24 - 28

THURSDAY, September 29

Venus in Libra


It’s time to make peace in your relationships.


Can you build a bridge from you to your partners?


Is the chasm too wide that separates you?


Are you willing to open up negotiations to bridge the gap?


Are you being authentic in expressing what you desire, and what you can give in return?


If you are feeling challenged in being authentic, there will be challenges in the relationship.


If one person thinks they are getting something the other has agreed to give, but does not want to give, the bridge will be strained, and may eventually collapse.


Just as in order for a bridge to be stable, the materials that the bridge is built with, and the way the bridge is constructed must be true.


If the concrete and steel are not authentic, the bridge will collapse, so too must your intentions in what you desire, and what you are willing to give must also be authentic.


The purpose of this transit is to create win-win scenarios where both sides of the agreement feel like they are getting what they want.


If both sides are being authentic and you come to the realization that the gap cannot be bridged, then you can still walk away peacefully.


However, if one or both sides has been inauthentic, then the peace will be hollow and war eventually shall ensue.


Be graceful, be authentic, and peace shall be granted to you.


When:


This Time: September 29 – October 23

Last Time: August 15 – September 10, 2021


Think back to the dates the last time Venus was in Libra for clues on what could be in store for you this time around.


For those born with key astrological points in Cancer and Capricorn, there could be challenges with your relationships. Be patient with yourself and your partners. Give yourself the space to be graceful and diplomatic when things are not going your way.


For those born with key astrological points or planets in Air and Fire Signs, this may be your time to thrive in your relationships, as you will be lifted by the Cardinal Air of Libra.

Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius Square Uranus Retrograde in Taurus


For the next 12-days we will be highlighting this alignment, as it is intense and important. I’ll be sharing a little bit more each day. For right now, let us understand the players.


Saturn is the Roman God of Wealth and Time. In the Greek myths, Saturn is known as Cronus.


Uranus is the Primordial Greek God of the Sky, son and husband to Gaia, the Earth Mother.


Yes, you read that correctly, Gaia was doing the deed with her son. I didn’t write the story, so don’t judge me, and get ready because it only gets weirder.


Uranus sired 18 of Gaia’s children, 12 Titans, three Cyclopes and three Hecatoncheires.


The youngest Titan was Cronus.


Uranus did not like his children, and so he hid them.


At the behest of Gaia, who pleaded with her children to punish their father, Cronus, castrated him and threw the family jewels into the Ocean, where Aphrodite rose up out of the Sea. His blood that spilled to the Earth formed the Giants.


Uranus then rallied his children to rebel against Cronus.


You can see the contention between these two energies from the nature of this story. More to share in the coming days…


When: October 1 – 12


The last time Saturn and Uranus Squared off was February 6 – 26, 2021 and December 23 – 29, 2021. Think back to these days to recant the energy at hand to offer clarity for what could be in store for you this time around.



SUNDAY, October 2

Mercury Retrograde Goes Direct in Virgo


The Retrograde is over, but Mercury remains stagnant in the sky.


From September 29 – October 5, Mercury will be at 24° in Virgo.


This is significant because Mercury typically moves 1-2° a day, but will instead be at the same degree for seven days.


This means, continue to take your time.


Be patient.


Give yourself plenty of space to get done what you need to get done.


Give yourself plenty of time to get to where you need to go.


Refrain from adding any new unexpected projects to your plate, and instead continue to focus on what you are already working on, so you can complete the task at hand, rather than get distracted and willingly throw yourself off course.


Analyze the status of your daily routine, health, diet and job. Look at the dates below to determine how these areas of your life have improved, or regressed since the beginning of the retrograde and retrograde shadow.


Where would you like to be in these areas by the time Mercury moves out of its retrograde shadow on October 16?


When:


Retrograde Shadow: August 20 at 24°11’ Virgo

Retrograde: September 9 at 8°55’ Libra

End of Retrograde: October 2 at 24°11’ Virgo

Retrograde Shadow: October 16 at 8°55’ Libra


°°°


The Moon in Capricorn Square the Sun in Libra


Look into the sky.

Notice the Moon.

One half in light.

The other in shadow.

Conflict ensues between structure and flow.

You have an ambition to achieve, but which way should you go?

One side says it must be fluid and partnered.

The other side says “no”.

"I’ve plotted the course. There is no help needed."


Once on the mountain, the climb may seem too steep.

The other side says, “I should call for help. I’m exhausted for sleep.”

Round and around, this conflict abounds.

Be patient.

Be graceful.

Do work that is sound.


When: 2:00pm – 8:00pm PDT

Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius Square Uranus Retrograde in Taurus


Now that we know the mythical family history of Saturn and Uranus it is easier to understand the tension in general of these two planets.


Another way to recognize the nature of these two planets is to understand them this way…


Saturn is the planet of restriction.

Uranus is the planet of rebellion.


Cronus aka Saturn restricted Uranus by castrating him. This castration was responded through a rebellion led by the offspring of Uranus’ castration.


Where do you feel restricted?


In what areas of your life would you like to rebel?


Do you need to tone down your revolutionary ideas and instead find ways to be more responsible?


More on this alignment to come, next week…


When: September 30 – October 12


The last time Saturn and Uranus Squared off was February 6 – 26, 2021 and December 23 – 29, 2021. Think back to these days to recant the energy at hand to offer clarity for what could be in store for you this time around.
