We have a fresh new lunar cycle thanks to last Saturday’s New Moon, now waxing in Libra. Give special attention to your partners the next couple of days in addition to what ever other projects you may be cooking up. Monday is a five star day and Tuesday is a three star day with a change of sign to Scorpio, so expect the heat to be turned up a bit. A bit of self-care work on Tuesday is probably a good thing. Click on the link and you can go straight to this week’s meditation (now you have no excuse, here’s self-care right at your door).
Moon transiting through Libra brings a nice energetic boost to the Air sign natives (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) while helping us take a look at issues of beauty, harmony, fairness, legal dealings and karmic balance. Look your best in shades of royal blue, rose, pink, black or pastels. Opal, amethyst, celestine, sapphire or fire agate are all great crystals for beauty and balance while lily, lilac, rose, vanilla or violet essential oils or incense refresh, uplift and add a come hither aura to a close encounter of the romantic kind.
Scorpio Moon transits are intense, emotional and mysterious and of benefit to all water sign natives (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces). Dramatic shades of maroon, red, black, gray or orange are a good bet for clothing, accessories or candles. Try bloodstone, tiger’s eye, jet, obsidian, black tourmaline or turquoise to protect your energy field and to keep your energetic balance when the Scorpio Moon transit becomes a bit too intense. Vanilla, violet, pomegranate, gardenia or honeysuckle scents delight and entice; great for lifting your spirits or being your sexy best.
Monday 17 September 2012 the pressures of love and money matters abate a bit when the Moon forms a sextile to Venus at 1:39 AM (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PDT). Your optimism and good luck factors ratchet up significantly when the Moon trines Jupiter at 8:27 AM; be on the lookout for a helping hand from the Universe at this time. Pluto makes its direct station at 10:05 PM and begins to slowly return to forward motion. Retrograde since 11 April 2012, Pluto will be just a hair off of completing its retrograde shadow at the end of 2012. This is of special importance to those of you with planets in the first 10 degrees of the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn), as you may have found the going tough in 2012 with regard to personal projects, home/family concerns, partners or career issues.
Tuesday 18 September 2012 Universal pranksters create delays, restrictions and other hassles thanks to the Moon conjoining Saturn at 4:30 AM. This combined with the fact that the Moon is void of course until 7:46 AM when it glides into Scorpio may mean Tuesday morning is full of reasons to go back to bed. Be sure to carve out a bit of self-care work before you head out to begin your day. Meditation is a great idea, but so are artistic/creative endeavors thanks to a Moon-Neptune trine at 9:34 AM. Visualization, law of attraction or research work all benefit from the sextile between the Moon and Pluto at 7:16 PM. Then again, a romantic rendezvous would benefit as well…
Just be sure to wrap up the rendezvous well before 11:55 PM when Uranus and Pluto lock horns; conventionality butts heads with unconventionality, tradition runs headlong into freedom seeking and avant garde behavior–not much fun. Make a graceful exit at least an hour or so before this aspect hits and you won’t have a mess (literal or figurative) to clean up later.
