As I wrote last week, feminine assertiveness, strategic planning and practical creativity can be powerfully amplified if the proper adjustments are made. Release or transform any structures in your life that stand in the way of your deeper embodiment of these qualities. Assistance from healers or mentors can be very helpful if your solo efforts aren’t accomplishing the task.
Considerate and compassionate communication in your committed partnerships, conducted in a spirit of fairness, can open you to a deeper level of soul blending with your partner. This is facilitated by a Thor’s Hammer aspect pattern containing Libran Mercury, Cancerian Juno and Piscean Neptune. This Thor’s Hammer begins today, peaks on 9/16 and ends on 9/20.
Breakthroughs in your embodiment of feminine assertiveness and strategic planning are empowered by a Uranus-Pallas Athena opposition. If your strategy requires a surprise move, consider dong it now!
The Thor’s Hammer aspect pattern that started on 9/15 peaks today and ends on 9/20.
Virgoan Venus does a double today, opposing Chiron and quincunxing Uranus. Even meticulously mindful relating may result in having an old wound triggered out of left field. If so, it may be more productive to heal the original wound than blame the catalyst. (This healing invocation may help.) These dynamic aspects can also support creative breakthroughs and new approaches to financial management.
Jangly edges in committed partnership? It’s a great time to initiate a revised, perhaps more expansive structure to contain it as a second Thor’s Hammer kicks off. Like the Thor’s Hammer that started on 9/15, this one also contains Juno and Neptune, but its third planet is Mars. This Thor’s Hammer starts today, peaks on 9/21 and ends on 9/23.
Healing things that relate to value – including self-esteem – is supported by a flowing Chiron-Ceres trine.
Ceres receives additional stimulation today from a Uranus quincunx. Follow your intuitive flashes and be ready to make paradigm shifts in the areas of value, self-esteem, release and return, and abundance!
You can enjoy enhanced stability in your relationships, creativity and finances as Venus sextiles Saturn. With Venus in Virgo, this aspect also supports fine-tuning in these areas.
Rather than indulging in excessive escapism or over-the-top fanaticism, you can take definitive action to energize your spiritual practice and creative output with Mars square Neptune. With Mars in Sagittarius, you’re also empowered to act out your ideals and higher principles in the physical world.

It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during void-of-course Moons. “Business as usual” is the optimal strategy. Void-of-course Moons occur when the Moon has made her last major Ptolemaic aspect, but has not yet moved into her next sign.

Whatever your Sun Sign, Benjamin’s forecasts can help you make the best use of the current astrological energies.
All dates and times are in the U.S. eastern time zone. Events are most powerful on the dates listed, but their influence will be active for at least several days before and after.
Everyone is affected by these global transits. However, you will be most powerfully impacted when moving planets activate sensitive points in your natal chart.
