We’re coming into some interesting energy this weekend as we move into the final purge and “Grand Finale” of a very intense and turbulent eclipse season! With the Dark Moon in Leo coming over the eclipse point this weekend, now is an ideal time to reflect back on how far we’ve come over the past few weeks and to let go and purge all that is holding us back from moving forward into a more beautiful path that is truly centered in our hearts.

Friday (9/15): Venus in Leo makes a supportive sextile over to Jupiter in Libra today, which is great energy for coming back into balance and expanding on our relationships! We are also entering into the dark phase of the Moon, making today a good day for us all to spend a bit of time pampering ourselves— we could all use a break after the intense energy of these past few weeks and the harmonious aspect between Venus and Jupiter supports us in treating ourselves to a bit of TLC. ☺
Saturday (9/16): Mercury comes into its third and final conjunction with Mars today— but this time, the energy is being expressed through the critical and pragmatic sign of Virgo! People will be incredibly quick to say what’s on their minds this weekend, and in Virgo this can entail harsh criticisms being communicated in a not-so-delicate way. Be mindful of your speech, as we are all more apt to speak quickly without fully thinking things through. There is the potential to hurt others with our words and to take criticism from others much too personally, causing us to feel hurt as well. This is an intense energy that can bring up anxiety, anger and frustration in those that are predisposed. It is important to slow down, and to remain as grounded as possible as this energy causes us to become much more prone to accidents when we rush through things.
Sunday (9/17): The Dark Moon in Leo comes into conjunction with the eclipse point just shortly after going Void-of-Course this evening. This energy revisits themes that came to a head around the time of the eclipse and shortly thereafter, providing us with an opportunity for an emotional purge of all things related to this energy that are holding us back from moving forward. This may come through as an emotional catharsis for some, for others it may feel like heaviness or hesitation, or even a restless energy compelling us to move forward prematurely.
Venus in Leo makes a beautiful and harmonious trine over to Uranus in Aries today, bringing fun, spontaneity and unexpected new developments in our relationships and finances! This energy could bring an unanticipated chance encounter with a new lover, or could stir things up in a positive way to bring more fun and excitement into existing relationships! This is an excellent time to make changes to your appearance as well, as Venus and Uranus favor a drastic, positive change to enhance your beauty!
Have a beautiful weekend everyone! Be sure to check back on Sunday for the weekday forecast! ☺
