September 29th – October 5th, 2014

This week may increase our interest in our relationships and a desire to seek balance in a ‘life out of balance’.

The week begins on a high note. While we might wonder what to engage first as we start the week, our motor is running and we are ready to push ourselves into high gear. If we could cover all the bases, we certainly would. We’re feeling upbeat, confident and taking a greater involvement with the special person, or people, in our lives.

The week may start with good feelings all around, confidence and optimism about where we are going and what we are doing. It will be hard in our volatile world to maintain our intense energy indefinitely. Some of our energy may die down and shift as we change our focus to our goals. Even though we may have celebrated and engaged other people to start the week, we might find that those very same people are getting in the way of our ambitions.

We do not have to step on toes if we advance our interests with determination and finesse. Stomping around won’t get us any further ahead, but grace and charm can work miracles. Finesse is the name of the game during the mid-week period. Being strategic and concentrating on what we want to get done will get us further ahead than would belligerence or trying just to plow through.

The end of the week may have us drawing upon the advice and suggestions of someone in regard to how we could develop our future plans. We don’t have to know everything but knowing what resources we can draw upon is essential to advance our aims quickly and effectively.

There can be a few bumps in the road during the week, but nothing that we can’t handle. The weekend is a mixed bag.

We may be looking to move too far too fast and could wind up hitting the wall. Mercury turns retrograde on Saturday, and this three-week cycle reminds us that Murphy’s Law of ‘whatever can go wrong could go wrong’ is back in effect.

The Mercury retrograde might slow down our pace but it will not derail our enthusiasm. We may be racing down the track, although we need to be certain that we have not jumped onto a runaway train.

The week can be an upbeat, productive week, and it would be wise for us to accomplish as much as possible before we enter the Mercury retrograde territory. The weekend might have us spinning our wheels or spinning out of control. We might still have the confidence and enthusiasm, but we also need to maintain our focus and concentrate on the most effective ways of doing things, all the while taking care of the details and not irritating anyone in the process.

Monday, September 29th – World of Possibilities – Neptune, Sun, Mars, Lunar Grand Trine, Uranus, Jupiter, Venus Libra. Monday starts the week with the Moon in Sagittarius. The Moon today squares Neptune, the Moon sextiles the Sun, the Moon conjuncts Mars and the Moon creates a Fire Grand Trine as the Sagittarius Moon trines Uranus in Aries and the Moon trines Jupiter in Leo. Venus exits Virgo to enter its own Sign of Libra. This Monday can be a day when we need to start off on the right foot, for once we get going there may be no stopping us. Instead of going with whatever catches our fancy, it would be wise for us to consider our options, and our options can be varied and plentiful. With the energy we have today we could virtually move mountains, and may gain the support and assistance of someone who encourages us to do our very best. We can accomplish a great deal today, especially if we get focused and concentrate on pressing matters. As the day develops, we might choose to explore new opportunities that seem to come up out of the blue. A truly magical day and not one to be wasted by just sitting back and letting the world spin by.

Tuesday, September 30th – Considering the Wonders – Moon Void-of-Course. We begin this Tuesday with the Moon just having gone Void-of-Course with the Moon making no further connections to the planets for over twenty-five hours as the Moon finishes its transit of Sagittarius and before entering Capricorn early on Wednesday. After a highly active Monday, Tuesday may seem to be a brief interlude, a time for us to reflect on all the wondrous possibilities we might have conceived or become aware of yesterday. We are feeling upbeat and inspired and more accepting of the fact that the paradigm shift is not merely a projected belief but an increasing reality. Unexpected situations could have arisen yesterday, and we might have a whole different world view today. We don’t have to do anything about our new perceived sense of things, but it would be wise for us to filter through all the new ideas, various options and different situations that might have come up and hone the more salient points.

Wednesday, October 1st – Fast Track – Mercury, Venus, Neptune, Sun, Pluto. Wednesday has the Moon in Capricorn with the Moon today sextile Mercury, the Moon sextile Neptune, the Moon square both Venus and the Sun, and the Moon conjunct Pluto. This Wednesday can be one highly productive day. We are ambitious, considering a best practices approach, and not allowing anyone to stand in our way or distract us from our intent. Not only is our mind laser-like, whereby we can see what the fundamentals of any situation are and can cut to the substance. Our intuitive sense is also highly attuned today. We may be able to not only sense what is going on but then we can zero in on the most significant factors involved. Add to this the Moon conjunct Pluto and we can virtually move mountains today. We are highly determined to realize our goals and could use our enthusiasm from the past two days matched with our focused intent to accomplish a great deal. This is not a day to waste nor is it a day to be distracted by the superfluous.

Thursday, October 2nd – Veering Off, Back on Track – Uranus, Saturn, Moon Void-of-Course. We may feel so effective and productive on this Thursday that we consider to stretch into new projects, new directions. We have to be careful that we don’t get so enamored by our progress that we engage activities that might seem exciting and a vast change from our regular routine but may turn out to be a trip down a long and winding road to nowhere. The day begins with the Capricorn Moon square Uranus and the Moon sextile Saturn. Even if we veer off into unknown trajectories, we may find that the ease of development is not like it may have been over the past few days. If we hit some bumps in the road as we go off into new directions, it would be wise for us to see the light, backtrack and get back into doing what needs to be done. More can sometimes be too much. The unique involvements may be fraught with unexpected pitfalls. We may want to spread our wings but we need not fly too close to the sun. This is a day when tempering, braking and pulling back could prove to be the best course of action. As the day progresses, the Moon goes Void-of-Course for almost sixteen hours making no further connections to the planets as the Moon finishes its transit of Capricorn and before entering Aquarius on Friday. The latter part of Thursday might be time for us to take care of details, tie up loose ends instead of leaping into the chasm.

Friday, October 3rd – Me and My Good Friends – Mercury, Venus, Sun. Friday has the Moon in Aquarius with the Moon today square Mercury and the Moon trine both Venus and the Sun. We might look to get the weekend starting early, for our interest on this Friday is more the camaraderie of good friends and colleagues. We might easily skip over our due diligence in making our plans today, and we do need to be careful regarding our expenses and our finances. Projects that are appealing may grab our attention without our fully considering the costs involved — time, effort and financial expenses. We are not as easily focused today on what is right ahead of us, more interested in what lies beyond the blue horizon. This is a day when we could lose ourselves in the fantasies of possibilities without taking into account the itinerary by which to reach our destination. This is also the last day before Mercury turns retrograde, so let’s also recognize the potential for misunderstanding, misinterpretations and delays in getting from wherever we are to wherever we want to go. This Friday is a day to step off the track, even if we enter Fantasyland, but let’s not over commit ourselves to plans and future projects. We might enjoy ourselves with our friends and contemplate how we would be and what we do in a perfect world.

Saturday, October 4th – Pulled Up Short – Mars, Uranus, Lunar T-Square, Jupiter, Saturn, Sun, Pluto, Mercury retrograde. Saturday could be a day when we feel like a racehorse in the starting gate, wanting to make a fast break out of the starting gate but waiting for the right time to do so. The Aquarius Moon sextiles Mars, the Moon sextiles Uranus and the Moon triggers a Lunar T-Square with the Moon opposed Jupiter and the Moon square Saturn. The Moon then goes Void-of-Course for almost fifteen hours making no further connections to the planets as the Moon finishes its transit of Aquarius and before entering Pisces tomorrow. The Sun squares Pluto today and, [drumroll if you please], Mercury turns retrograde for its three-week retrograde cycle. We may want to be up and at it as we start this Saturday, looking to investigate new arenas in which to expend our energy. But intentions are one thing, actual movement something else. We might have a lot on our plate for this Saturday, but we could also feel as though trying to put one foot in front of the other is an ordeal. We may be feeling out of sorts and with the energies operating today, it would not be surprising. Although we might feel uncomfortable in our own skin, it would be important that we not take any of our frustrations or annoyances out on other people. Conversations and discussions can be sharp, pointed but also likely to miss the point. This Saturday is a day for us to count to ten before responding to anything with which we are confronted. We can be feeling a whipsaw between wanting to leap ahead, move forward and get going and the flipside being feeling like we are running in place, getting nothing significant done and liable to digging an even bigger hole for ourselves. It would be important for us to cut ourselves a great deal of slack today, not try to do too much and realize that some of our planned activities could come to naught.

Sunday, October 5th – The Great Adventurer – Mercury, Neptune, Pluto, Mars, Uranus. We might have run into some road blocks yesterday, found ourselves banging our head against the wall. A sense of frustration trying to get anything done could have had our blood boiling. Sunday is a different energy, and one that allows us to move easily and quickly ahead. Yes, Mercury is retrograde but we might have gained our Mercury retrograde sea legs yesterday. This day has the Moon in Pisces, and today the Moon trines Mercury, the Moon conjuncts Neptune and the Moon sextiles Pluto. Mars trine Uranus. We may feel divinely guided to explore the four corners of the world, stretch far beyond our usual parameters and take machete in hand and carve our own pathway through the wilderness. We are likely to feel jazzed and energized with a sense that whatever we put our mind to we can accomplish magically, miraculously with a little help from the angels, spirits and others on the other side. Our emotions can be strong today and we may feel highly spiritual. We want to put spirit into action and can virtually move mountains with our energy, our commitment and technological tools. We have to question whether where we place our energy is in the direction that we wish to head. Recreational activities can be fun, especially if we are trying something for the first time.
