Finalizing and Aligning Important Matters and 
Recognizing Your Mystical Connections

There is always mystery and intrigue with the Harvest Moon that suggests cooler weather and all kinds of celebrations are just around the corner. That golden sphere looming bright reminds us all of the mysteries of life and that there’s more happening as the unseen begins to move closer.

All this week the Sun and Mars fires up activity and helps to bring to a peak with the Full Harvest Moon what has been lingering for some time. On Saturday, the day of the lunar peak in Pisces both Mercury and Venus move into Libra that sets a new and more thorough pace for activities relating to partnerships, counsel and legal matters if that’s been brewing. This is a week of newness where you can realign with intention to refine your stance and restore balance where needed.

The Guiding Light of the Universe Becomes Very Personal

When I think of so much Virgo I see a group of quilters gathered to work in unison to create something both beautiful and functional that is also nurturing in that the quilt warms and holds the energy of many hands. It’s the same for spinners who gather to make yarn and then turn it into garments and blankets. All Virgo activities are teachers, nurses, caretakers and all those in service going about their daily routines as the worker bees of society. This is a dimensional grid that blankets the planet wherein much happens not just by the visual eye but is happening dimensionally that can be sensed intuitively.

Mercury makes no less than five direct and major connections to other planets along with solar strengths and a lot of lunar movement that is an interconnected weave of emotion. All this with the First Quarter Moon in Sagittarius call for making an effort to bond where reasonable and find common ground. Visionary rays and beliefs are involved with how you choose to focus your attention and decide on intention.

You may notice pockets of time throughout the week where there is a concentration of angles that seem to bottle up and are intense, strong and call for attention.
