Helping Hand

The world can change overnight.  You may think you know your life's direction and then something happens.  Something that you knew might happen but didn’t see coming.  It’s always nice in those moments to have someone beside you holding your hand.
 
The Venusian energy of Libra is being felt.  Even though Mercury has retrograded back into the sign of Virgo, Venus herself is moving into the sign of Libra on September 29 at 3:49 am.  The Sun in Libra and Venus in Libra are also making their presence known in Opposition to Jupiter in Aries.  The Sun Opposes Jupiter in Aries on September 26 at 3:33 pm and Venus in Libra Opposes Jupiter in Aries on October 1 at 2:12 pm. 
 
What is important?  Is it the relationship to others or to the self?  You can’t do it all alone.  For some, it may seem like it’s all about the self.  Aries is the I AM.  Who are you?  But Libra is the other.  You cannot exist in life as a solitary being.  Sometimes you have to reach out.  This is one of those times.  Whether it’s to ask for yourself or to give help to others, or both.  Life means more with relationships in it. Who do you want to be?  How do you want to be known?  With these oppositions, we’re being nudged to remember the boundary between the two.  You can help others without giving up who you are.  You can be yourself without having to separate yourself from the world. 
 
When you have the opportunity, it’s important to lend a hand.  The world needs more kindness.  Each one of us needs a little help now and then.  Accept it and give it when you can.

Time for Balance

The Sun will be entering the sign of Libra on September 22 at 9:04 pm.  It’s time to reflect inwards and find balance as the seasons change.
 
The Autumn Equinox falls on the day when the Sun moves into Libra.  It is also the point where sunrise and sunset are separated by exactly 12 hours.  Daylight will start to decrease and you will begin preparing for the winter months here in the northern hemisphere.  In times past, it was a time to reflect on the harvest and what you had accomplished.  What did you still need to do before the cold set in?  Your perspective is about to change.  It will no longer be a time of planting and harvesting, but hibernating.  Animals still do it today.  You would determine what you needed to survive during the winter.  You spent the majority of the year preparing for this upcoming season.  You still have time to prepare.
 
Times have changed.  Our food source no longer follows the same models that it once did, but these ancient systems can provide you with clues for what you will begin to experience. A time for reflection.  What do you still need to modify so that you can bring more balance into your life?  Libra is all about relationships as well.  Are your relationships in balance?  What can you do to bring more peace, love, and harmony into your world?   The time to explore the darkness of the winter months is coming, but for now, you still have time to initiate changes and modify what you’ve been working on.  What do you still need to do to accomplish your goals? 
 
Mercury is still going retrograde in Libra.  Mercury in Libra will be opposing Jupiter in Aries on September 18 at 6:34 pm and will be Conjunct the Sun in Libra on September 23 at 2:50 am, a few hours after the Sun moves into Libra.  Venusian values will take center stage and ask us to look at what we love.  Do you love the direction that you’re headed in?  If not, this is the time to learn a new perspective and possibly make a change.
 
You need balance in order to move forward in life.  Life can’t be all work, no play, or all play and no work.  There are two sides to every coin.  If your life is too skewed in one direction, this is the time to right the ship and find balance.

Who Wins?

The two signs that Mercury rules are squaring off on September 16 at 2:49 pm, Venus in Virgo and Mars in Gemini, plus Mercury just officially when retrograde on September 9.  What does all of this mean?
 
Venus in Virgo is cautious, reserved, perfectionistic, and practical.  She wants to determine the details and check items off the to-do list.  Mars in Gemini is adaptable and social, but can also be scattered and inconsistent.  Who wins Venus or Mars?  Are you doing it to be able to get tasks accomplished or are you going to be talking it out?  It’s too early to tell.
 
Mercury retrograde can have a trickster energy, and where Mars in Gemini is in the sign of the twins, there can be a dual nature to issues or you may just have to do everything twice.  When you’re able use the energy of Virgo to take your time.  Make sure to look at everything multiple times before you hit that send button.
 
The importance of astrology comes in giving you details about what the energy looks like around you.  If you’re in tune with the energy, you can often feel it, but astrology helps you to name it.  By naming the energy, you can witness those people around you and see how the energy is impacting them and their day.  You have the option to keep on your path.  Now that is easier said than done.  There are going to be days, where the energy is going to drag you in a direction that you hadn’t anticipated.  Uranus in Taurus is still challenging you to grow and throwing unexpected curveballs your way, even if it doesn’t have a specific aspect in play.
 
By knowing the energy around you, you could be the winner.  By understanding the energy it brings you a sense of awareness that could help you.  Virgo energy also has a tendency to focus on the body, so this could be a great time to begin an exercise program and get rid of some of that excess Gemini energy, and truly focus on the tasks ahead of you. 
 
The primary point of the year 2022 is to grow.  The North Node is in Taurus.  You are meant to change.  You are meant to be different at the end of the year than you were at the beginning.  The September Equinox is drawing near and we’re entering the last 2 seasons of the year.  You still have time to make the necessary changes, but the end is drawing near.

Going Backwards

It’s time for another sign change this week and Mercury goes retrograde.  Hold on to your hats.  Venus will enter the sign of Virgo on September 5 at 12:05 am and Mercury will station to go retrograde on September 9 at 11:38 pm.
 
There will definitely be a change in your heart space when Venus leaves the sign of Leo.  Venus has been working on connecting to her heart space and figuring out what she wants.  When Venus enters the Virgo it’s time for her to become cautious, reserved, perfectionistic, and practical.  Venus in Virgo wants to determine the details.  It’s a time for you in go within and determine how to be of service. 
 
Many people are afraid of Mercury retrogrades, but it helps when you know it’s happening.  Although it helps, it doesn’t mean that you may escape the technical glitches that can take place.  Mercury is currently in Libra and will retrograde back into one of it’s home signs of Virgo.  Mercury is currently searching for balance, peace, harmony, love, and justice. How can your mind and your words best be of service to yourself and others?  Mercury retrograde is also the time of reviewing, revising, revisiting, and any other word that starts with re.  It’s time to go backward.  Are you on the right track?  Do you need to make any adjustments? 
 
With retrograde planets, you may also find that people from your past return.  They will return to give you a new perspective or maybe even a second chance before it’s time to go forward. 
 
If you know your chart, look to see what houses Virgo and Libra are in.  It can help you see what areas of your life are currently in focus.  It may seem counterintuitive, but you often have to go backwards to go forwards.  This is one of those times.  You may be missing a piece of the puzzle that you need so that you can finish a chapter of your life.  You may receive an answer that you never expected.

Make Sure To Think

Make sure to think before you act this week, especially on September 2, when Mercury in Libra Opposes Jupiter in Aries at 6;49 pm.
 
Mercury in Libra would rather not make a decision and Jupiter in Aries has a tendency to act impulsively and think about the consequences later on.  Because of these placements, it’s even more important than normal to take some time before responding. 
 
There’s a tendency in the world today to act first and ask questions later, but what if this is one of those times where you should do the opposite?  The world around you is changing and you are meant to change with it.  Maybe the way that you think and act is meant to change along with it.  This point of Mercury in Libra, will be revisited 2 more times over the coming weeks because Mercury is going retrograde on September 9.  Are you noticing any issues that are coming to the surface?  This could be part of your Mercury retrograde story this season.
 
Your stories provide you with clues about what you’re meant to be working on right now.  There’s your own personal story in addition to the collective communities’ story.  Those two stories may tie closely together or they could be completely different, but if you look at the world around you, you may see that people have a tendency to act impulsively, especially on social media.  People will comment with whatever comes into their head whether or not they have all the facts. 
 
Thinking about something before reacting doesn’t make you weak, it’s part of what helps you to become a more enlightened person.  To see whether what someone else is saying has any truth or is it triggering you in the moment?  Why is what that person is saying triggering you?  Can you do anything to change the story?  Make sure that you think before responding this week, it could save you from having some major headaches later.

Time For Work

Summer is drawing to a close.  Kids will be going back to school and life will settle into a new routine as the Sun moves into Virgo on August 22 at 11:16 pm.
 
It’s time to get to work.  You’ve been receiving visions and clarity and now the Sun wants to shine a light on the work that needs to be accomplished.  It’s time to become practical and analytical and begin to take the next steps.
 
How can you accomplish the tasks ahead of you?  What do you need to do?  Make a list.  Virgos love a to-do list.  Start working your way through what needs to be done for you to work on your goals. 
 
Also, there is a second sign change this week as Mercury will enter Libra on August 25 at 9:03 pm.  Mercury will be looking for peace, love, and harmony.  It wants things to be fair and diplomatic.  More of the element of air will again enter the atmosphere and help people speak cooperatively. 
 
The week will close out with two Squares on August 27.  One is between Venus in Leo and Uranus in Taurus at 12:34 am and the second is between the Sun in Virgo Square Mars in Gemini at 4:11 pm.  Uranus in Taurus has been shaking up your world and with it Squaring Venus in Leo, it's looking to shake up how you love and connect you with your heart.  The Sun squaring Mars is shining a light on how you take action.  Are you moving forward?

Variety is the Spice of Life

Have you been receiving clarity over the last few weeks about what makes your heart sing?  What do you really want in life?  Leo season is all about connecting to the heart.  The sun is in Leo until August 22, so the sun is shining a light on this area of your life.  Venus entered the sign of Leo on August 11, so now the planet of love and beauty has gotten in on the action, but Mars is leaving behind the sign of Taurus on August 20 and entering Gemini, the sign of communication.  It’s time to get social.
 
There hasn’t been a lot of air in the sky, so even though you may have been receiving clarity, you haven’t felt like sharing it with anyone.  That is about to change.  Gemini loves to chat and get excited about something new.  Geminis tend to thrive on change and are interested in doing many things at one time.  Mars is all about action and drive, so Mars is going to be helping you to speak about what you want. 
 
One thing about manifesting something that you want to bring into your life is that you have to speak it aloud.  Every time I have been looking for a new job, from the time that I begin to mention it, the universe starts working behind the scenes and I have typically had a new job within a few weeks. 
 
This is the time to start speaking about what you want to change.  What does your heart want as you move forward?  It may seem small or absolutely crazy.  It’s not a time for judgment.  What do you want?  This is the time to start manifesting.  Talk about it with your friends and family.  You never know where that one conversation might begin to take you.
 
The most challenging part of manifestation is letting it go.  You often want to control the outcome.  Try not to control the outcome.  The South Node in Scorpio will help you to let go of that need.

Aftershocks

Wow!  Last week may have been an intense one, but the energy hasn’t dissipated.  You’re still being challenged this week with some aspects.
 
Mars in Taurus will be Square Saturn in Aquarius on August 7 at 12:57 pm.  Mars is feeling frustrated by Saturn’s restrictiveness.  It can also feel overwhelmed at times by all the obstacles that seem to be thrown in its way.
 
Venus in Cancer is Opposite Pluto in Capricorn on August 19 at 1:18 am.  A lot of feelings have been coming to the surface over the last weeks or even months.  These aren’t feelings or issues that should be brushed aside.  They are leading you in a new direction.  If you ignore these revelations, it can lead to even more disruptive energy.  Relationships are intensifying. Things aren’t meant to be the same when Pluto is done with it.
 
The Sun in Leo is getting into the Uranus in Taurus action with a Square on August 11 at 5:53 am.  The Sun is shining a spotlight on Uranus’ growing impatience with the status quo.  It’s time to break free and allow the revelations to come to light. 
 
Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto aspects can seemingly change the world as you know it and have done it over the last few years.  Big reveals have come to light and you can’t go backward.  It’s time to be present and see what is meant to unfold for you.  You may want to know the future and especially with the energy in Taurus, control what that future looks like, but it’s just not possible.    
 
You are being guided in a new direction.  It may not always feel that way.  It’s easy to question what’s going on and why hasn’t it happened.  You did exactly what you were supposed to and look where you are.  Just remember it's not over yet.  You're still in the shake-up and things haven’t begun to settle back down.  Just be patient and do your best to go with the flow and deal with the repercussions.

Breakdown to Breakthrough

Do you feel the momentum building?  You can feel it in the air around you.  Uranus in Taurus has been conjunct the North Node in Taurus for the last few weeks, but on August 1 at 4:53 pm, Mars in Taurus will conjunct this same point.
 
Uranus is the planet of awakening and revolution and the North Node is a point that you’re working towards.  Mars is the planet of action and activation.  Mars, Uranus, and the North Node are all in the sign of Taurus, a fixed sign that is extremely resistant to change but is seeking security, stability, comfort, and practicality. 
 
If you’ve been resistant to change, this may be the point where you feel like you have no choice, but to change.  When the North Node is involved in a chart, it can feel like a fated moment.  You have no other option, but to go in this new direction.  While Taurus is a fixed sign and is resistant to change, it is also one of growth.  Taurus season is when the seeds that were planted start coming to life.
 
The last two years, you’ve spent a lot of time envisioning a new future and planting the seeds for what you want to come.  Now is the time, ready or not, here it comes.  If you’ve been doing the work, you will begin to see the sprouts start to come out.  If you’ve been resistant, then it’s time for some unpredictability.  Taurus is a fixed sign, so it loves control, but the more you try and control something, the more unstable it can become.
 
Expect some surprises this week.  Whether you’re ready or not, you’re moving in a new direction.  Some things have to break down so that a breakthrough can occur.  This is that moment.  Do you have the breakdown during the earthquake or as part of the aftershocks?  Only time will tell. 
 
Try to move with the change.  It can be a challenge, especially in the moment.  Take a deep breath.  It’s time for you to grow and growth can be exhausting. Just look at children and how much they rest during a growth spurt.  Use this as your model for the week.  Try and take a time out if possible.  Remove yourself from the chaos that may be around you and search for clarity.  It’s there if you take the time to look.

Why Isn’t It Happening?

You’ve probably been working on getting some clarity and trying to determine what path you’re going to take forward.  You may quit your job and start down a new path, but things don’t seem to be turning out quite the way you expected.  On July 26 at 2:13 am Mercury in Leo is going to be square Mars in Taurus and your impatience is going to begin to show if it hasn’t already.
 
You have created a timetable and a picture in your head.  This is what should happen and this is when it will happen.  The universe doesn’t work that way.  You can follow all of the signs and still want to know what is happening?  It’s incredibly frustrating, but it’s also revealing something.  The reveal, when it happens, will take you in an unexpected direction.
 
Be careful of the words that are spoken during this time.  They can be made impulsively and may only show part of the picture, but words once said can’t be taken back.  These words could create some controversy as a result. 
 
Mercury is going to square Uranus in Taurus a few days later on July 28 at 5:16 pm.  Mercury is ready to start scheming and Uranus in Taurus is looking to cause some drama and is reaching the point where it may just want to start over and burn it all to the ground.  Uranus is looking to create something unexpected and it may just come out of those ashes. 
 
It’s going to be a fast-paced week with some twists and turns.  Fire and Earth don’t get along particularly well, so pay attention.  Brace yourself for the ride.  It could be an enlightening one.
