Wednesday, September 1
With tensions to Mercury the messenger and boss-planet Saturn, Moon in sensitive Cancer may make us a bit touchy. Suggested activities: care for and bless the home, work on personal growth, or de-clutter personal space. Although Moon is in her Last Quarter—apt for tying things up—today’s numerology of 1 favors initiative, and with Mercury soon to enter shadow, if we want to achieve something that falls under the aegis of the crab, now is the time to go for it. For instance, we could search for living quarters or embark on a new course of metaphysical study.
People connections go best after 5:52 pm (8:52 ET), when Moon sextiles Sun. Cook for or cuddle someone; connect with family, children, mothers or women. With feisty Mars moving towards an opposition with slippery Neptune, avoid arguments, bars, speeding while driving, and confrontations—and follow your instinct to avoid situations that are potentially confusing or belligerent.
Connect with others before 10:11 pm (1:11 am ET), when Moon makes a square to Chiron and touchiness may again prevail. After that, journal, enjoy music, or embark upon guided meditations.
I am surrounded by divine love, into which nothing negative can enter and out of which only good shall come.
Thursday, September 2
Creativity surges, with Moon in imaginative Cancer connecting with artistic planets Venus and Neptune. Mars the doer in practical Virgo opposes creative Neptune in Pisces, sign of its rule. This latter aspect can also foment interpersonal conflict; people may not mean what they say or even what they do. So save new commitments and brave adventures for another day. However, this opposition can precipitate new levels of success in a creative or altruistic pursuit, strengthening us to cut through procrastination and act on our intuition and inspiration.
Make a dream board for a creative project or spiritual journey. As for presenting your work, show it as is; you can always refine it later.
With Moon in sensitive Cancer approaching a wee-hour contact with expansive Jupiter, night owls can stay up late to contact the angels, go on a spiritual journey, or work on publicity or promotions.
I am infinite being, and I am naturally receptive to the positive, subtle forces that surround, support and guide me now and always.
Friday, September 3
If you can, rise early and use the wee-hour contact from Moon in charismatic Cancer to Jupiter, planet of angels, travel and publicity, to connect with light beings, go on a spiritual journey or, with Mercury at the tail-end of its direct modality, promote something.
At 8:58 am (11:58 ET) Luna enters passionate Leo. The energies shift, to favor spending time with friends or meeting people, developing our talents and works, expressing feelings in style, or going out with someone new.
Avoid slipping into romance addictions or fantasies.
Make something lovely.
In the One Mind, I’m already connected to the perfect people for our shared joy, success and paths of service. I know them in the invisible, and they appear visibly, here and now.
Saturday, September 4
For most of the day, creativity is high but so is tension, with Moon in expressive Leo making stressful aspects to demanding Saturn and independent Uranus and with Sun in quincunx to wounded-healer Chiron. Do journaling and move ahead with an independent or creative project.
With Mercury the messenger in social Libra trining constructive Saturn in friendly Aquarius, evening is the best time for contacts with others. Use them to build relationships or an endeavor you wish to last.
I am grateful for my positive, constructive connections, now and always.
Sunday, September 5
Use the early Moon in Leo to draw out dream images and journal about what to release in preparation for tomorrow’s New Moon.
At 7:22 am (10:22 ET), Moon goes VOC in Leo on an opposition to Jupiter, planet of angels and recreation. The next eight hours are great for inner work such as connecting with our heart energy or spirit guides, and meditating on forgiveness.
Such strategies will help harmonize this evening’s square from Venus to Pluto that brings us in touch with our deep emotions and need to heal self-esteem and love ties. This transit is great for therapy and inner work, but if we’re not mindful, can fuel jealousy and manipulative dynamics.
Things get more productive after 4:06 pm (7:06 ET), when Luna enters diligent Virgo. This is a great time to review and consider New Moon goals, and outline steps to manifest them. Solve a problem, work to complete an old project.
I give thanks that there is a divine path for this situation and it is being revealed and facilitated now.
Monday, September 6
Although in the US today is officially a holiday, we’ll want to use one of this year’s most promising days.
New Moon in Virgo occurs at 5:52 pm today (8:52 pm ET).
In addition, this morning is marked by two major trines. Assertive Mars in diligent Virgo trines Pluto the powerful in ambitious, constructive Cap: focused action can be deeply transformative. Our courage is renewed and we can: move through blocks, get to the bottom of something, find a missing document, send a daring email, and get out of our own picky, procrastinating way to take a crucial action step.
As both Mars and Pluto have a warrior spirit, this trine can be a bit much. However, the edge is softened by another major harmony: sweet Venus in affable Libra trines Jupiter, the planet of fortune that expands whatever it touches, in friendly Aquarius. Love, benevolence and bonhomie pour forth to bless our interactions in teamwork, socializing and cultural collaboration. Venus and Jupiter are both favorable and their trine adds charm to promotional activities and brings ease in relating, goodwill and good fortune.
Mercury enters pre-retrograde shadow now, so the best results come in relation to intentions that we acted on previously.
The Sabian symbol for the New Moon at 14-15 Virgo says:
A FINE LACE HANDKERCHIEF, HEIRLOOM FROM VALOROUS ANCESTORS… The quintessence of deeds well done. Root strength produces beautiful flowers. The neophyte who acts with determination, courage and discrimination while following ‘in the footsteps’ of [her] predecessors receives a symbolic prize from the [Sisterhood] ready to welcome [her] when [she] has fully proven [herself] on the battlefield where [she] meets [her] past, which tries to block [her] way… The true “disciple” is a flower that crowns a long series of incarnations.
To enrich these benefits further, this evening, Sun in grounded Virgo trines innovative Uranus in abundant Taurus. With all its practical, sweet and empowering harmonies, the wishes we make and the things we start on this portal can support:
- Successful work in financial projects, publicity or promotions.
- Releasing perfectionism and taking transformative, courageous action for service, health, promotional activities or work.
- Enrichment of a monogamous love relationship.
- Activation of key connections.
An evening quincunx from Mars to Jupiter keeps our energy up and promotional spirit alive.
Angels of courage, please direct my thoughts and actions to seize this divine moment now.
Tuesday, September 7
The healing powers of Moon in Virgo are deepened as she connects with psychic Neptune, transformative Pluto and inspired Jupiter. We can apply these abilities for ourselves and others.
This morning, Moon’s opposition to Neptune triggers the imagination. This is a great moment to make a vision board or manifestation parchment, pasting color photographs of New Moon intentions on poster board or uploading a virtual simulation of this on a tablet or computer.
At 11:33 am (2:33 pm ET), Moon trines Pluto, the “Godfather” planet. We can knock on a key door, research a family shadow, work on emotional healing, direct business or investments with a focus on wealth-creation.
At 12:24 pm (3:24 ET), Moon goes VOC. Take a few hours off to enjoy your own nerdiness until 8:20 pm (11:20 ET), when she enters socially adept Libra, favoring socializing, romance or a good read.
I give thanks that angels work to strengthen my healing powers, now and always.
Wednesday, September 8
Avoid unnecessary arguments. An opposition from Mercury the messenger to Chiron in touchy Aries can bring out the Libra Moon’s taste for a good debate.
At 9:29 am (12:29 pm ET), Moon trines Saturn the builder, favoring constructive interchanges with others. Make a list of pending calls, emails and requests and get as many of them covered as possible. Get them done before 4:16 pm (7:16 ET), when Moon echoes Mercury’s Chiron opposition, fueling touchiness.
At 6:01 pm (9:01 ET), Luna joins loquacious Mercury. We can do beautiful editing. Communications flow with friends, colleagues or a love object.
Archangel Michael, please cut away any doubts, shame or fears that have limited my self-expression and restore my word of power now.
Thursday, September 9
Today offers some great windows for relating.
This morning, Moon in sweet Libra connects with artistic, romantic Neptune. Work on something creative or share a romantic brunch or lunch.
At 1:48 pm (4:48 pm), sweet may turn salty as Moon squares intense Pluto. We can take a breather and do research for fun or, with number 9’s alchemical numerology, work on prayer or read about esoterism.
At 2:03 pm (5:03 ET), Moon in social Libra trines Jupiter in friendly Aquarius, fueling great connections. Do PR or seek out friends, a flame or colleagues for service, cultural or altruistic collaborations. Get it while it’s good, since tomorrow Venus will leave Libra, air sign of her rule, and enter intense Scorpio.
At 9:48 pm (12:48 am ET), Moon goes VOC in Libra, entering deep Scorpio at 11:05 pm (2:05 am ET).
I am worthy of meaningful, happy relationships and I allow myself to enjoy them, here and now.
Friday, September 10
A quincunx from mental Mercury to brilliant Uranus fuels sharpens our acuity and can help us apply the power of Moon in passionate Scorpio wisely.
Moon makes tense contacts to taskmaster Saturn and wounded-healer Chiron, and most of the day favors independent activities that go deep, such as dream interpretation, research, getting to the bottom of something, or solving a problem.
Avoid being hard on yourself or others. Save people connections for tomorrow or Sunday.
Archangel Chamuel (or wisdom being of your choice), please help me radiate healing love to myself and others now.
Saturday, September 11
Morning harmonies from Moon to Sun and Neptune favor close encounters of the passionate kind, intimacy, psychism, angel connections, and creativity.
At 4:08 pm (7:08 ET), a square from Moon to Jupiter makes for effective promotions and good feelings, but watch out for excesses in food, drink, lust or—with fixed signs involved—dogmatism.
Just five minutes later, Moon makes a sextile to ruler Pluto, excellent for research and powerful connections in business or love.
Use it before 10:33 pm (1:33 am ET), when Moon goes VOC, entering Sagittarius at 1:34 am (4:34 ET).
I love myself, and this opens me to the happy situations that flow to me now.
Sunday, September 12
At 1:34 am (4:34 ET), Moon enters Sagittarius, a great placement for having fun, going on an adventure, enjoying friends, throwing a party, and spending time outdoors.
At 2:18 pm (5:18 ET), Moon sextiles constructive Saturn, favoring activities that join the archer’s vision to the boss-planet’s executive skills. With Mercury in shadow, we can:
- Work on data retrieval or correspondence
- Follow up to obtain a long-overdue answer, payment or loan
- Renew business communication that requires diplomacy
- Organize a legal matter, a study program, or plan a class
- Get in touch with our central goals and organize our week around them
My situations are under spiritual law, and they flow in perfect order, here and now.
Monday, September 13
Today’s numerology of builder-number 4 gets the week off to constructive start and, like yesterday’s Saturn sextile, helps ground the enthusiasm of Moon in Sagittarius.
Her sextile to Mercury in charming Libra makes this morning great for people connections, especially:
- Mending fences
- Making plans with your honey
- Legal affairs and dealings
- Editing copy and publicity with an eye to beauty
At 1:39 pm (4:39 ET), Luna reaches her Second Quarter. Pause to review progress on things you wished for or set in motion at last week’s New Moon.
The Sabian symbol for 21-22 Sagittarius says:
A CHINESE LAUNDRY… Making use of one’s special racial-cultural background… to survive and prosper in an alien environment… There are many situations in which because of one’s ancestral or personal background, or their special interests, an individual finds themselves separated from the people in whose midst they have to live. Yet they can often use this background as a valuable foundation smooth operation and acceptance… without giving up their own natural character.
At 2:33 pm (5:33 ET), Moon squares imaginative Neptune. Communications with people may seem confusing, but intuition surges, favoring contacts with angels, devas and spirit guides.
These benefits hold for the rest of the afternoon and evening, although a sextile from Moon to Jupiter at 6:38 pm (9:38 ET) does away with the confusion and favors communications with light beings and also people, including friends, clients, collaborators and prospects.
I am not alone or without positive company, I am surrounded by angels and spirit guides, now and always.
Tuesday, September 14
At 4:34 am (7:34 ET), Moon enters practical Capricorn, a constructive influence that enforces self-reliance.
Today’s numerology of 5 moves us to build on one of our more recent projects. Look for something set in motion before September 6, when Mercury entered shadow, and reorganize a key project, get in touch with colleagues, and make tangible progress.
At 12:21 pm (3:21 ET), Moon sextiles Venus in Scorpio, sign of power, intimacy, and change. These powerful energies can help us entertain a boss or a high-power colleague, patiently listen and learn, or get in touch with someone related to our career or goals. We might also re-apply for credit, consult a financial coach, have a romantic lunch, or make a team effort.
I baptize myself as a complete success in the Name of the One Presence and the One Power.
Wednesday, September 15
Moon in Capricorn is at her dynamic best, as a trine to revolutionary Uranus adds courage to her naturally productive nature. Try a new path in business or an audacious shortcut to reorganize workspace or methods, or a home building project. Today’s numerology of 6 favors prosperity, family interactions and congenial gatherings.
Tonight, Moon’s harmonies to Neptune and Sun favor pleasant or romantic interactions, intuitive consultations, enjoying music and film, or making progress in a creative project.
At 10:40 pm (1:40 am ET), Moon goes VOC.
With actions and words, I affirm my openness to new forms of good, here and now.
Thursday, September 16
This morning we can take a breather and save productive activities until after 8:23 am (11:23 ET), when Moon enters innovative Aquarius.
When she does, two major aspects will spark our potential. Venus in deep Scorpio squares Saturn in wise Aquarius, bringing us to question our values, relationships, finances and self-esteem. Take a time-out, journal, or consult with a therapist or coach.
The perspective we gain will help us use an empowering trine from Sun in diligent Virgo to intense Pluto in focused Capricorn, an aspect that galvanizes us to move on our path of power.
Moon in Aquarius spotlights ideals, acquisition of knowledge, and collaboration for a cause.
Spiritual warrior forces, please guide and direct me on my path of power now.
Friday, September 17
We can make headway with independent, creative work or research. Moon in trailblazer Aquarius squares ruler Uranus, lighting our inspiration and enlivening our intuitive voice.
Mercury the messenger makes a quincunx to artistic Neptune, inspiring our imagination and contacts with angels, but possibly creating confusion.
Yesterday’s Venus-Saturn square is still active, its creative potential accentuated by these aspects. We can beautify our work and generate lasting beauty.
Today’s numerology of 8 brings opportunities for progress, although today’s influences are not so high on diplomacy or warmth, that is, not until 10:36 pm (1:36 am ET), when Moon trines Mercury the messenger and friendship and promotions can flow well.
Until that time, we can focus on what we can review, improve and get done on our own.
I give thanks for my freedom and use it to move in my own preferred ways, here and now.
Saturday, September 18
At 2:14 am (5:14 ET), Moon goes VOC. Take the morning off, have a good read or brunch with friends until 1:22 pm (4:22 ET), when Luna enters dreamy Pisces.
Now, we might sleep, meditate, pray, do dream yoga, or give humanitarian help. Or, attend a spiritual group or gathering, work on art or something that requires imagination, study, or healing of past lives. Or! clean out closets; give away clothing, books and other items we don’t use.
Irritation alert for this evening with a Moon-Mars quincunx.
Affirmation to dissolve karma:
I am a child of the divine, and I shine like a pillar of eternal power. As I recognize my true condition, the beliefs and events of my past lives crumble away. The divine being that I am never fell into the world of appearances, and with this recognition, it is resurrected now.
Sunday, September 19
On this highly creative day, the pioneering numerology of 1 emboldens the Moon in sensitive Pisces, helping us cut through perfectionism and act on our inspiration.
This morning, Moon trines Venus in profound Scorpio. We can work on our emotions, have a sexy brunch and a healing conversation. Dream interpretation, forgiveness, prayer and psychic activities flow beautifully.
This afternoon, the magic becomes more exciting as Moon in dreamy Pisces sextiles electrical Uranus. Create a vision board for abundance or business, follow your intuition to act on a new financial pathway, connect with stimulating others, try a new form of romantic experience, organize a gathering for the Full Moon portal.
Spirit has a plan for my happiness and success, and Spirit guides me in accordance with Its loving plan, here and now.
Monday, September 20
The smooth influences of today’s Full Moon in Pisces heal our spirits and precipitate easier, more intuitive communications. We can also make headway in business, social connections and teamwork for a cultural or altruistic endeavor.
Venus connects with wounded-healer Chiron in Aries, sign of the great I AM, helping us love ourselves free of pain and limitation. Moon sextiles transformative Pluto, triggering opportunities to manifest our dreams and a new level of spiritual empowerment. Mercury, ruled by Venus in deep Scorpio, makes a trine to confident, expansive Jupiter in sharp Aquarius, expanding the reach of our communication.
With Sun in discerning Virgo, this Moon favors closing the door on forces that have limited our sense of self-worth and manifest a new network of light beings and humans that resonate with our divine inheritance of happiness. From a practical viewpoint, as we act on the priorities that resonate with our happiness, we can make tangible headway.
At 8:13 pm (11:13 ET), Moon enters hyped-up Aries. We can de-clutter or push to finish something.
The Sabian symbol for 28-29 Pisces says:
LIGHT BREAKING INTO MANY COLORS THROUGH A PRISM… The analytical power of the mind necessary for the formulation of life processes in their many aspects… Existence implies DIFFERENTIATION.
I choose to love myself, and I access my divinely designated network, here and now.
