Mars in Virgo opposes Neptune rx in Pisces on Sunday, September 24th at 3:49pm EST. This opposition will reveal areas where we may feel taken advantage of or uncertain, and will act as a mirror for any deceptions taking place. With Mars in Virgo, you may feel inclined to handle things on a more practical base than feeling tempted to react (or overreact).
Merucry in Virgo will square Saturn in Sagittarius at 10:36am EST on Monday, September 25th. Serious expertise and mastery come along with this transit, but it can be a tough one due to Saturn’s dry and calculating nature, which can put the kibosh on Mercury’s usual quick and fun demeanor. Today would be a great day for getting organized, putting information to work, and holding yourself accountable for the things you’ve said.
Jupiter in Libra opposes Uranus rx in Aries on Thursday, September 28th at 12:25am (September 27th PST), encouraging us to honor our unique selves and to forge our own path. These two planets last met in April when Jupiter was also retrograde, so now that Jupiter is direct, this concept may seem easier to achieve. This is also a great transit for breaking bad habits and starting something new. Pluto in Capricorn also goes direct today at 3:36pm EST, turning personal power and business savvy on high. While Pluto was retrograde, we had time to plot and plan for future personal and business endeavors, so now is the time to externalize your visions.
Venus in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces on Friday, September 29th at 8:12pm EST. Idealism runs high with this transit, and you may be feeling outgoing, inspired and artistic. This is not the best transit for spending money, so be conservative with finances today, lest you suffer buyer’s remorse. Mercury enters Libra shortly thereafter at 8:42pm EST, one of two upcoming transits that will help facilitate enacting personal and professional goals that Pluto direct has initiated.
Moon Transits this Week:
Venus enters Cancer on Monday, July 31st at 10:54am EST. This receptive planet and sign combination sends waves of sensitive energy until the end of August. Venus represents our sense of self-esteem, aesthetic standards, sense of affection, social urges, and source of money. When in Cancer, Venus is sensitive, intuitive, sympathetic, security-seeking, and instinctually charming. A skilled Venus in Cancer is nurturing, encouraging, and creative, while an unskilled Venus in Cancer can be defensive, defeatist, and even martyristic. How will you use this energy over the next month?
Uranus in Aries moves retrograde on Thursday, August 3rd at 1:31am EST (10:31pm PST on August 2nd). Uranus is considered the “awakener” of the planets, and when it moves retrograde, we experience internal realizations that shed light on our ways of being. Uranus rx in Aries is asking us to awaken to our natural and instinctive selves, and to exert ourselves in ways that make us stand out as unique from our surroundings. We are also urged to break away from internal constructs and stories that confine us. Uranus will remain retrograde until early January 2018, so we have the remainder of the year to work on liberating ourselves from the constant and limiting tapes that we allow to control us.
Jupiter in Libra squares Pluto rx in Capricorn on Friday, August 4th at 2:48pm EST. This is the second square-off between these two planets this year (they last met on March 30th), which marks major shifts in self-control and personal development, for better or worse. When these two planets last met, Jupiter was retrograde in Libra while Pluto was direct in Capricorn—now the opposite is the case, with Jupiter direct in Libra and Pluto rx in Capricorn. This transit sheds light on where we should exert self-control in order to achieve positive results. If not managed appropriately, this transit can also result in sloppy and domineering behavior. Jupiter is often shy about managing the details of things, while Pluto uses the details to empower. This transit asks you to integrate these energies for the greater good, particularly in our external relationships and business dealings.
