We’re kicking off the workweek with some highly significant and unusual astrological alignments! Venus is making it’s superior conjunction with the Sun, while also making a conjunction with Pluto, ruler of sex, power, death and transformation. Supported by harmonious aspects from both Jupiter and Mars, both still forming a close conjunction in the intense and passionate sign of Scorpio, this incredibly powerful combination of energies makes it much easier to see ourselves and our relationships more clearly, allowing us an incredible opportunity to do the deeper work.Read More
The energy is still a bit tense with the Sun coming into an exact square with stern and sobering Saturn early this week; however, Venus in Leo will be highly active as well, with many harmonious aspects to the planet of love, beauty and sensuality, including a conjunction to the karmic North Node! These aspects will help us to come more easily back into balance after the turbulent astrology of these past few weeks all the while pulling us even deeper into a truly authentic, heart-centered path!
*Please note: This is a general forecast describing the planetary influences for the week ahead. For a more personalized, nuanced interpretation based on your unique birth chart, follow this link to schedule a one-on-one astrology reading!
Monday (9/11): No major planetary aspects today. The Moon will be Void-of-Course until 12:28pm MST, when it will move into the playful and communicative sign of Gemini.
Tuesday (9/12): Venus in lively, vivacious Leo will come into a harmonious trine with Saturn in Sagittarius today as it makes its way closer to its exact conjunction with the karmic North Node. Venus in trine with Saturn helps to ground and re-stabilize our relationships, finances, and our overall sense of comfort and balance. Our partnerships can be strengthened at this time— business, romantic, or otherwise, providing the framework for a much smoother ride going forward.
Wednesday (9/13): The Sun in Virgo makes a challenging square to Saturn in Sagittarius today. Saturn is being helped by the beautiful and benefic Venus, which came into exact trine with the planet of rules and restrictions yesterday; however, the limiting, sobering effect of Saturn will still be very present today. If there is something blocking your path to success, or if the self-critical sign of Virgo is shining light on your limitations and flaws, now is the time to get to work to create a better situation for yourself to insure greater success in the future! Saturn is all about putting in the hard work toward our long-term goals and plans, which always takes longer than expected. Something may come up today that hinders our ability to make progress as speedily as we’d hoped. If this is the case, just know that it’s likely for the best. Saturn requires that we all do things the RIGHT way, not the fast way, in order to set up a solid foundation for our future success.
Thursday (9/14): Venus in Leo comes into conjunction with the North Node today, bringing fated, karmic circumstances and connections up to the surface today. There may be a chance encounter with someone in your life that feels fated or oddly synchronous, or you and your partner could end up forging a completely new path together! Pay close attention to what comes up for you today, as the events that unfold are meant to lead us all on a more courageous, heart-centered path moving forward!
Have a beautiful week everyone! Be sure to check back on Thursday for the weekend forecast! ☺
Venus is getting a lot of action at the tail end of this week and into this weekend, stirring up a lot of energy surrounding relationships, finances and material matters. On Thursday, Venus came into a harmonious trine with Saturn in Sagittarius while sitting right in the middle of the Uranus-Eris conjunction— revealing things we don’t necessarily want to see about our relationships and financial situations and prompting us all to take calculated risks in order to resolve power struggles and restore balance moving forward. This energy continues into Saturday with Venus making it’s exact conjunction with Uranus while coming into trine with the North Node in Leo. This aspect brings flashes of insight and fated circumstances that serve to guide us toward the right relationships, which will help to move us into a more courageous and heart-centered path.
Friday (6/2): No major planetary aspects. The Moon goes Void-of-Course (VOC) in Virgo from 2:53pm-5:08pm MST when it moves into the beautiful and balanced sign of Libra.
Saturday (6/3): We have a lot going on in the skies today! Venus in Aries will come into an exact conjunction with Uranus today, bringing unexpected events surrounding relationships up to the surface. Uranus is the great disrupter and can cause disturbance to the balance and harmony that Venus desires. This disruption may come in the form of chaotic circumstances or unexpected insights, and although this aspect may leave some of us feeling frustrated and tense, for the most part I see this transit as bringing many benefits. Venus is still in close trine with Saturn in Sagittarius, an aspect that came exact on Thursday of this week, grounding the energy and adding a layer of stability integrity into the mix. Venus conjunct Uranus requires that we make some sort of change involving our close partnerships, romantic and otherwise, and so long as we are thinking things through and acting in integrity, the changes we make at this time can yield very positive results.
In addition to her conjunction with Uranus, Venus will be coming into a harmonious trine with the North Node bringing new, very fated and destined relationships into our world. As with any transit involving the Lunar Nodes, pay close attention to messages and insights that come up today (especially with Uranus in the mix) as the circumstances that arise are meant to guide us in the direction of a new, more courageous path. Now is a time to connect from the heart and share our passions and creativity with the people we love most.
We have another powerful, beneficial aspect today with the Sun in Gemini coming into a beautiful trine with expansive and optimistic Jupiter in Libra. Under the influence of the Sun and Jupiter, we can feel much more confident and self-assured. We feel much lighter, more jovial and expansive when Jupiter comes into positive aspect with the Sun. Now is an excellent time to take off and have an adventure, communicate and socialize, and to go out and be seen!
Sunday (6/4): Today the Sun in Gemini comes into square with mystical Neptune in watery, foggy Pisces. While Jupiter’s trine with the Sun has us feeling confident and full of optimism, the influence of this hard aspect from Neptune can cause us to become delusional about our abilities. We are more prone to self-deception and delusional behavior under this influence as Neptune causes us to want to see the world through rose-colored glasses. Neptune’s square to the Sun also makes us more susceptible to lies and deception from others. Although things may feel very positive and loving in the moment, be wary of offers and invitations that feel too good to be true as things may go south very quickly once this transit passes.
Finally, Mars moves from Gemini into the watery, emotional sign of Cancer today. Water signs are contradictory to the fiery nature of Mars and tend to slow down our ambitions and impetus to act. Those of us who are ruled by Mars (Aries and Scorpio Rising and Sun signs) may feel our willpower start to fizzle out once this transit takes hold. On the positive side, Mars in Cancer invites us to take action from a place of intuitive and emotional understanding. We are more inclined to nurture and be nurtured under this influence. People become much more emotionally and physically supportive and feel driven to tend to their comfort zones at this time. This is an excellent time to start projects related to the home, family and real estate and to take the initiative to begin a new self-care routine.
