September 23-29 2013 Astrology Forecast: Passion!

sexual passionEmotional and sexual passion is fired up this week by several aspects, including Scorpionic Venus trining Jupiter and squaring Mars. Divine connection is encouraged by aspects including a Jupiter-Neptune sesquiquadrate. And a Sun-Uranus-Pluto T-square stimulates revolutionary transformation at your core!

9/23 (Mon)


A Sun-Uranus-Pluto T-square begins today, peaks on 10/1 and ends on 10/9. This empowers revolutionary transformation on a personal level, and can be a tremendous vitality booster!

Challenge is the norm under this aspect pattern. But it can be transformed into flow by following your intuitive flashes and releasing everything that does not serve your highest good. With the Sun in Libra, you may feel this revolutionary transformation most keenly in your relationships and creative expression.

9/24 (Tue)

Juno, retrograde since 6/15, stations direct today. This is a good time to start taking action on any plans relating to Juno’s key themes: committed relationship, beauty, sexuality and the renewal of love.

9/25 (Wed)

Confusion, especially in relationships and creative expression, is possible with the Libran Sun quincunx Neptune. But, if you call on your inner divine to help you, these same areas can be guided by a constant flow of intuitive wisdom.

9/26 (Thu)

Relationships, creativity and finances come under the magnifying glass, perhaps accompanied by an extra measure of luck, with Scorpionic Venus trine Jupiter. This easy connection between the two classic benefics will offer some assistance on its own. But trines can be lazy when left to their own devices, and work best when activated by your conscious intention and action.

Ready to unleash your inner warrior goddess? Now’s your chance, with a Pallas Athena-Chiron-Pluto Yod. This “Finger of God” aspect pattern can empower your cultivation of strategy, wisdom, the arts, (especially drawing, weaving, and pottery) and holistic healing. This Yod starts today, peaks on 9/29 and ends on 10/1.

9/27 (Fri)

Learning, communication and creativity all receive a healthy splash of inspiration with Libran Mercury quintile Pluto.

9/28 (Sat)

A square between Venus and Mars can spark relationship conflict, especially with Venus in intense Scorpio and Mars in egocentric Leo. Strive to stay centered, and seek the root cause of the disharmony so that it can be understood and healed. Used consciously and harmoniously, this square can fuel passionate lovemaking and artistic productivity.

Why settle for religious belief when you can experience divine immersion? If you’re feeling dissatisfaction because you’re not having a sufficiently vivid experience of the spiritual realms, dive into your inner world! The Jupiter-Neptune sesquiquadrate fueling this urge peaks today, then slowly wanes through 10/18.

9/29 (Sun)

Be ready to face challenge in the areas represented by Pallas Athena as she squares Saturn. As mentioned in Thursday’s forecast, these include warriorship, strategy, wisdom, and the arts.

Mercury commences an unusually long stay in Scorpio today: all the way through 12/4. This is because Mercury will run its next retrograde entirely within Scorpio, starting on 10/21 and ending on 11/9.

Mercury in Scorpio is an excellent time for investigation, detective work, and truth telling. Strive to communicate with compassion, even if your emotions are running hot.

Sacred sexual connection is smoothly empowered with Virgoan Vesta trine Pluto. Power is also more easily available for whatever higher cause you serve.

The Pallas Athena-Chiron-Pluto Yod that began on 9/26 peaks today and wraps up on 10/1.

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.

9/23, 3:13 am – 9/24, 3:36 am (Gemini)
9/26, 7:22 am – 3:26 pm (Cancer)
9/29, 3:31 am – 3:59 am (Leo)

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.
