Sept. 9-15 2013 Astrology Forecast: Flashes of Brilliance

Sept. 9-15 2013 Astrology Forecast: Flashes of BrillianceActions may speak louder than words, but there’s plenty of support for both this week!

“Just do it” Mars makes four mostly challenging aspects to outer planets and helps form a “Finger of God.” And mental Mercury is poised for flashes of brilliance with aspects to three outer planets, as well as involvement in three potent aspect patterns.

Venus also makes an appearance, entering Scorpio and trining Neptune.

9/9 (Mon)

Mercury transits Libra today through 9/29, encouraging harmonious relating and creative writing and thinking.

It may feel as if you’re driving with the brakes on with Leonine Mars square Saturn. Energizer Bunny endurance is available if you keep pressing forward with appropriate initiative and assertiveness. This is especially true in the areas of leadership and spotlighted performance.

9/10 (Tue)

Do you feel dynamic tension between your gentler inclinations and your more assertive feminine side? You can consciously strike an appropriate balance with Libran Venus square Pallas Athena.

Yod: Mars-Chiron-Pluto

Two aspect patterns kick off today. The first is a Yod involving Chiron, Pluto and Leonine Mars. This is a great time for creative experiences that support healing and transformation, whether you’re performing or appreciating. This four-day Yod doesn’t give you a lot of time to work with, since it peaks on 9/11 and ends on 9/13. But since Mars represents initiation, you can at least get started on such a creative venture!

You can also use this Yod to support healing and transformation by taking the reins and directing a stressful situation in a more peaceful direction.

T-square: Mercury-Uranus-Pluto

Today’s second aspect pattern is a T-square featuring Mercury, Uranus and Pluto. This opportunity to revolutionize your thinking starts today, peaks on 9/14 and ends on 9/18.

Verbal conflict can be triggered under this energy, so take a hint from Mercury’s Libran placement and anticipate the other person’s likely reaction before you speak. This aspect pattern can also inspire creative breakthroughs, especially those involving verbal or written communication.

9/11 (Wed)

Venus transits Scorpio today through 10/7, supporting transformational relating, tantric sexuality and provocative creativity.

Mars and Pluto are astrology’s most sexual planets. Their edgy quincunx could fuel intensity and theatrics in the bedroom, especially with Mars in dramatic Leo. Make whatever adjustments are needed to fine-tune this erotic volatility to your taste.

Mars and Leo also represent leadership, while Pluto represents power. Adjustments may also be needed under this quincunx so that authority, rather than just serving the ego of its wielder, is exercised for the highest good of all.

Another quincunx, this time between Libran Mercury and Neptune, foretells potential communication confusion. Take pains to make sure you’re understanding and being understood. Inspiration is also available, especially in the areas of creative writing and thinking.

A trine between Libran Mercury and Juno supports flowing communication in committed relationships.

The Mars-Chiron-Pluto Yod that began on 9/10 peaks today and ends on 9/13.

9/13 (Fri)

Grand Cross: Mercury-Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto

A six-day Grand Cross begins today, adding Jupiter to the Mercury-Uranus-Pluto T-square that started on 9/10. The core possibilities of this T-square – innovative thinking, verbal conflict and creative breakthroughs — are given extra potency by Jupiter’s amplifying power.

A Grand Cross is astrology’s most challenging aspect pattern. It’s additional meanings in this case include revolutionary transformation of your religious beliefs, philosophies and perspective on “life, the universe and everything.” It peaks on 9/15 and ends on 9/18.

An additional T-square that includes three members of this Grand Cross – Mercury, Jupiter and Uranus – also begins today. It peaks on 9/16 and ends on 9/19. Its meaning is included in the Grand Cross interpretation above.

9/14 (Sat)

Enjoy enhanced creative inspiration, more soul-deep connection with those you love, and easier merging with your own divine nature as Scorpionic Venus trines Neptune.

Mars aspects two outer planets today. While a Mars-Chiron quincunx can stimulate wounding behavior, it can also help you initiate healing. And a Mars-Uranus trine can help you translate intuitive flashes directly into action!

Telling the honest truth – while remaining sensitive to the other person’s emotions – is a better choice than verbal sparring with Libran Mercury square Pluto.

The Mercury-Uranus-Pluto T-square that started on 9/10 peaks today and wraps up on 9/18.

9/15 (Sun)

Stability for your self-esteem and material concerns are available with Saturn sextile Ceres.

Your words can gain power to either wound or heal with Libran Mercury quincunx Chiron.

The Mercury-Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto Grand Cross that started on 9/13 peaks today and ends on 9/18.

Void-of-Course Moons

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.

9/10, 5:22 am – 9/11, 2:37 am (Sagittarius)
9/12, 1:09 pm – 9/13, 5:57 am (Capricorn)
9/14, 7:17 pm – 9/15, 8:07 am (Aquarius)
