.Your Celestial Compass for September 21-27, 2020
The Earth Turns to a New Season and Mercury Points to Power
Evermore so, the Fall Equinox (spring in the Southern Hemisphere that’s also a shift) is needed, at the least as a reminder of the greater energy of our planet, with all of nature in flux and stretching to align as positively as possible earthly activities. The elements are stirred with imbalance between water and fire that are raging. During the Equinox Tuesday, September 22 is a great time to work with energies of Earth and the four elements, fire, earth, air and water. Equinoxes are energetic shifts with this being the end of summer and beginning of fall when gathering and harvesting is finalized and storing for the winter ahead is a primary activity. Animals gather food and items for warm shelters to sustain them when the land is more barren. You’re strengthened and reinforced when you connect with planet shifts and by being in alignment with nature you’re fortified. From the simplest meditation to ritual it’s the intention that matters most. Astrology is a symphonic harmony rippling over the earth from celestial rays that infuse instigation and awareness.
The equinox is the point of earth’s celestial alignment and is the zero point when the sign Libra begins. The day is equal light and dark. This Libra cycle brings a certain acute reality that could easily for some be based on differencing as in discerning originality. This can also produce struggle to align so ensure you’re comfortable with decisions before acting on them. Celebrated for centuries with many types of ritual ideally it’s good to embrace reverence for our home planet and all life that through harmonizing with it that can be change leading to expanding awareness of the significance of every aspect. This massive vibration is worth noticing and attuning with that then may become a leading force. To see what others are doing you might look to Stonehenge in England.
Mercury makes several significant moves this week that keep communication significant, which include your own needs to connect and make known your ideas and intentions. You may notice more drama in general. On Sunday Mercury leave Libra and moves into Scorpio that will leads us into October when it will retrograde, extending its stay as well as moving for a short time back into Libra. October is filled with astrological phenomena so Mercury only adds to the major rays in effect. Deep thought, ponderings of mortality and immortality are roots that trigger many conversations and decisions. The deepest part of our psyches surface and sensitivity to what is done, said and heard is powerful.
The Second Quarter Moon in Capricorn on Wednesday prompts to plan and embrace where you want to go from where you are now, and during this time until the upcoming Full Moon in Aries on October 1 you can plant seeds – those ideas and actions you want to grow.

September 14-20, 2020
Restoration and Renewal go Hand in Hand toward Pivoting You in the Right Direction
From Monday until Thursday the waning Moon allows time to rest and go within for reoperation and solace, after which the New Moon in Virgo at 7:00 AM on Thursday begins lunar growth toward full on October 1. This growing tide benefits what you’d like to increase and fulfill especially, relating to health, work, and your everyday life. This cycle of building makes it easy to organize and create a more beneficial way of living.
On Monday the Sun is fortifying via trine Pluto that is a power point for doing what counts in the long run and establishing something important. On Thursday, in addition to the Sun and Moon conjunct it also trines Saturn, further strengthening this center of life and purpose making it easier to take the initiative.
Tuesday brings in Venus square Uranus that is not great for personal relationships and social connections, and as well there can be disruptions in creative pursuits so isn’t a good time to push someone or something.
This final week before the Sun moves into Libra is also about relishing in small things and making small activities and duties benefit the bigger picture. Tasks that may seem simple or insignificant can turn out to be contributors to greater events in a short time. Ideas matter.
Saturn is direct, the Full Moon is in Aries, Venus moves into Virgo and Pluto turns direct.
