Mac is on holiday until the end of October. For a personal forecast for the next 365 days, check out the transit report from the readings section.

September 24 – 30, 2009

Sink or swim is the mantra of the times as we head into choppy international waters. All this just in time for the United Nations gatherings in the US . Mercury is stationary on September 29 making this planet very powerful. Mercury rules all communications, negotiations, agreements, commerce, trade, business and education. Saturn and Uranus are involved with Mercury certainly until October 10, bringing very dynamic and powerful changes in their wake. Saturn the old guard, strives to quell any revolutionary energy ( Uranus ) that threatens the safety and security of its people. Mercury hopefully gets people to agree and at least communicate earnestly. The tension is on and we will see how the pendulum swings in the last days of September and into early October.

Aries The first quarter square of the Moon on September 25 might bring its challenges and stresses into play, especially at work and within relationships. You are learning to share and cooperate with others. The Moon opposes Mars on September 27 and the dynamics are in place for heated scenarios to unfold in the early morning. The day gets better as it goes. You might as well get ready now, for big changes are in the wind in the not too distant future. Get with the program and start doing what you really want to do.

Taurus September 26 is your day. It could pass by without much notice as that is how we generally experience the easy days. It seems like we do recall the trying and stressful times though. Love, good times, entertainment, children and their concerns may be on your mind. It is time to sort out what is real and worthy of your time. Work and health issues are onboard and must not be ignored. Too much of anything is just as bad as not enough of anything. Too much could be the case now though. Too much work and not enough rest.

Gemini The Sun and the Moon harmonize nicely on September 28 as they form a triangle and in turn both the Sun and Moon cast triangular rays into Gemini. In essence, it indicates a time of good returns for less effort and struggle. Lord Mercury is practically stopped in the sky as he turns direct motion on September 29. This seemingly stationary position makes Mercury very powerful and those ruled by him will most likely experience some type of animated Mercurial scenario in the form of letters, calls, journeys, contracts and all matters of communication, education, transportation and business. A busy time has arrived and you must set a pace that you can live with.

Cancer Mars continues his journey through your sign until mid October. Mars symbolizes fire, energy, action, anger, courage, heroism, accidents and incidents along with competition, war and exploration. In some way Mars will have his effect on you in accordance with how he is set up, supported or not by the other planets in your birth chart. Some folks undoubtedly will experience the harsh side of Mars in the form of clashes with heated or angry people, or you may display anger yourself. Other Moon types will build a house, join the gym and set off on exciting ventures wherever there fate guides them. You must do something now, and it is best to be proactive, but not too aggressive.

Leo In the far off distance you can hear the rumbling thunder of horse’s hooves and it piques your awareness as you prepare to handle whatever comes your way. Mars will be on your doorstep in mid October and he will visit your sign for five months which is really a long stretch of time to have this warrior planet around. Fortunately the Sun and Mars are brothers and he is welcomed into the camp of the Sun. A most dynamic time awaits you. Adventure, challenge, exploration and excitement are just a few choice keywords that describe the Martian vibe. Accidents, incidents, and surgery are a few more. Gird your loins, and prepare for high energy days to arrive.

Virgo It is a power packed time for your sign as Lord Mercury changes direction and moves forward once again on September 29. He is in Virgo and very much at home there. Mercury happens to be close to Saturn and opposite to Uranus and this combination will be in effect until October 10. It signals a busy time in which you strive to put it all together, that is home life, career and relationship / partnership activities. Business and education are features and what you start now may have a very long lasting effect. Be bold and forget the past. Turn your face towards the future and commence your journey of attainment now.

Libra September 28 is your day. The Sun and Moon form a triangle from Libra to Aquarius, both social and generally delightful signs. The impulse to mix and mingle is strong and the day will be chock full of unique social developments. Mercury becomes stationary on September 29 and it could create some glitches regarding agreements, contracts, schedules etc. Then again, it might be the type of day that you enjoy anyway as the Moon and Jupiter cast fine rays your way. It is your time to shine as you seek the balance in all things.

Scorpio The desire for change is very strong in you these days. It is time to evaluate everything and make the appropriate changes where necessary. Old connections are fading as are interests that had your attention in the past. New alliances are forming and all kinds of unique folks are destined to appear on your radar soon enough. Now is the time for the work behind the scene to take place. As my beloved Guru would say, “Let the wild flower grow in the dark, and when it is ready, it can show its beauty.” Spiritual life needs to be reinvigorated and renewed just like the Phoenix rising from the ashes.

Sagittarius The Aries full Moon on October 3 looks like a humdinger and the days leading up to it are loaded with intensity as well. Mercury is stationary and moves forward on September 29. Saturn and Uranus are in the play as well indicating an intense time for all signs as we witness the antics of the world leaders at the UN meetings and other news unfolding. A lot of this material is focused in your career and home sectors of your solar chart and those areas may get a play in the form of job changes, moves etc. A busy and demanding time is upon us.

Capricorn Life is somehow bittersweet. The Moon passes through Capricorn from September 25 to 27 bringing a plethora of events, some positive and some not so positive. The universe will provide myriad scenarios in which your patience and humility may be tested. The stresses of yesterday can be appraised and appreciated on September 26 as things smooth out a bit. Sunday September 27 could have a rocky start to it and tempers may flare, but things improve as the day progresses.

Aquarius The Moon visits Aquarius from September 28 to 30 bringing you into your lunar high of the month. Mercury is stationary on September 29 bringing probable communication difficulties to all signs, but you have the best chance of making sense and getting though the concerns without too much sweat. Someone’s misfortune could turn out to be your lucky break. Inheritances and joint monies come into play. You may be in the mood to go out and play and certainly you should mix and mingle as the time is right to do so.

Pisces Life has been tumultuous with Uranus passing through Pisces over the last several years. Uranus is the planet associated with upheaval, change and revolution. He exits Pisces in February 2011 and no doubt you can look back and note the dynamic and profound changes that have taken place. Uranus has revolutionized you in some way. In March 2011 Neptune enters Pisces. His 14 year visit will spiritualize you and connect you to the higher realms. Now is the time to be bold, brave and willing to invite the future and all that it has to offer. Be all that you can be now and the future will take care of itself.

September 17 – 23, 2009

The fall season gets off to a rocky start as a series of challenging planetary aspects take hold. It will be an intense time and we’ll be hard pressed just to keep up with the demands on our time and pocketbook. Concerns regarding the economy, taxes, health-care, employment, education and politics keep us spinning and spinning. There’s nothing new here, except that a certain edginess and tension is in the air as we work towards resolving our problems and concerns. As the Zen proverb goes, “Before enlightenment, chop wood and carry water, after enlightenment, chop wood and carry water.” In other words, we have work to do, problems to solve, issues to resolve and harmony to be sought after.

Thursday September 17:
A powerful day unfolds chock full of surprises and changes. Fear may run through the markets as news regarding the economy may set off a chain of events. The passing of a leader, V.I.P. or admired authority figure could take place. It might be a day in which we weigh up and take stock of what we have and what life is all about.

Friday September 18:
The Virgo new Moon is pregnant and potent. The new Moon represents a new start, a new round of life’s rhythms and activities. Mercury and Saturn sit close to the new Moon while revolutionary Uranus opposes the new Moon grouping. This tells of a time in which anything goes, and it may be a time when we begin our effort to rid ourselves of old outmoded ways of thinking and doing things. The potential for upsets, upheaval and big changes is very strong now. We will witness the fallout worldwide, collectively, privately and personally over the next thirty days.

Saturday September 19:
The Libra Moon squares off with Mars just after dinner setting the stage for lively and exciting times. Moon-Mars energies carry a certain tension with them and it won’t take much to set off a serious debate, confrontation or battle. It might be best to let it rest and bring up your concerns at a more appropriate time. Then again, some folks love nothing more than a good scrum. If so, fill your boots, for the stars are right for any form of fight or flight.

Sunday September 20:
Venus enters Virgo and forms a triangle with Pluto bringing opportunities to refine and revitalize, refresh and renew our efforts to bring peace, harmony, love and abundance our way. It is a good day to weigh up everything and set forth on a journey of cleansing, correcting and healing.

Monday September 21:
I wish that I could say that it is a lighthearted day, but I must not lead you astray. We have monumental issues that have cropped up and we must deal with them straight away. Don’t get discouraged or disgruntled. With a steady and well thought out approach we can work it out and get on track on time.

Tuesday September 22:
The fall Equinox takes place at 2:19 P.M., PDT. The Sun enters Libra which is the sign of justice, fairness, balance and harmony. That is of course, if there is a balance. If not we will set the course to find it. Battles, lines in the sand, loyalties, double crosses, jousting, bickering, posturing and proselytizing are all in the works as the unending game of political musical chairs continues and intensifies across the globe. We’re in, up to our necks, and it is sink or swim, and swim we must.

Wednesday September 23:
The phone lines and interwebs are crackling, sizzling with activity today as the world seemingly has picked up speed. As you can tell by now, something is up. No big mystery really. It is more about life becoming intensified and somewhat dramatized as we handle the pressing realities that seemingly come in waves. It is an exciting and challenging time and some day we will look back at it as we nod knowingly, that we came through as we always do. The planets are telling of a time in which serious and dynamic changes take place, hard work, commitment and dedication are the ingredients required in order to make the grade.

Aries The Fall Equinox on September 22 heralds your solar low of the year as the Sun passes through your opposite sign Libra. It is time to care, repair and nurture yourself in some way. You may feel run down or out of gas. If so, cut back and take it easy. Most Aries will just shrug it off and keep going anyway, pushing through until they get done what needs to be done. September 18 and 19 are touchy days in which flare-ups can happen easily. Big and constant changes are in the long view forecast for Aries. Best get started now, and in true Aries style, get the jump on the crowd.

Taurus Read the Aries message, for although you are not in your solar low, you are coming into a time in which you can heal, nurture and care for yourself. You are bullish when it comes to work, as it is a form of worship for many earthy Taurus types. Often you will push past the pain and ignore it and then pay dearly later. Creative and romantic energies get a boost, all the more reason to take good care.

Gemini The Sun casts good rays starting on September 22 as he commences his journey through Libra, which is a friendly sign with Gemini. He basically smoothes over our concerns and problems, often brightening our days with joy and laughter. This will be needed as Mercury and Saturn form a conjunction and they in turn form an opposition with Uranus, bringing surprising developments and heavy news. It still is a bumpy ride, and tensions are riding high especially from September 17 to 25. Set a pace that is livable and stick to it if you can. Allow the changes to take place rather than fight against them.

Cancer September 17 and 18 are tricky days in the sense that your above average intuitive ability may be working overtime and may possibly trick you. Misinterpretations are likely and ensuing power plays might take place. The Moon and Mars square off on September 19 increasing tensions and heightening emotions. Domestic disputes are on the top of the list, along with all emotionally based relationships needing extra care. Home, family and property figure strongly over the next four weeks. Opportunities to work out old sibling rivalries may present themselves, or it may be that they need your help or caring in the days to come.

Leo A time of soul searching has arrived. You must dig in deep in order to find the answers to what makes you happy and what makes you sad. Now is the time to clear out old negative habits that may have become chronic. A healthy diet along with ample exercise may be needed. Choose a few hefty topics and get into them in order to feed your unending curiosity about the nature of things. It is a time of learning and exploration, inwardly rather than outwardly. If Jupiter is a positive planet in your birth chart then you will be receiving his benefits for the next four months in the form of expansion, freedom and general good fortune. In the meantime it’s an intense period for all signs from September 17 to 23.

Virgo Get ready to rock and roll as it looks like we have happened upon an intense and very dynamic time, especially for your sign. Life is changing at a rapid pace and it may be hard just to keep up with it all. Do what you do, remain true to yourself and someday you will cherish these days. Yes, no doubt that your day is full with way too much to do, pressures, schedules, problems and concerns, worries whatever. The main point is that you are forming your future and moving away from the past at a fast rate of speed. Surprises and changes may come, along with possible delays. Use it to your advantage by taking the time to work through and see where you get to over the next few weeks. September 17 to 23 are days of change and hard work but you may not mind.

Libra Happy Birthday!
The Sun enters Libra on September 22, bringing you into your solar high of the year. It’s your time to shine and do your thing. The Sun invigorates and energizes you, bringing confidence and good will. Your ruling planet Venus commences her visit to Virgo on September 20 which is not the easiest place for Venus to hang out. It brings up a time in which you sort through what is real and what is true. Health matters need attending and finding the balance in all things is necessary. September 17 to 19 have their difficulties, with September 20 being a much better day.

Scorpio Now is the time for preparation for the future. Behind the scene activities keep you busy as you plan and prepare for the upcoming times. September 20 to 22 are your best days as the Moon visits Scorpio enhancing your intuition and timing. It is a very tense time astrologically for all signs and it will take some strength of will to come out on top when the smoke clears after September 23. Travel may be in the stars for you and others may come your way from afar. Do your thing, wade in, throw in and contribute to solving the problems of the times. Your will, determination, strength and vision are needed.

Sagittarius We have come upon a time in which tensions are running high, and all kinds of unusual events will take place as we adjust to the new reality. Another election, concerns with the economy, plus whatever you’re working through, and sure enough we will get though it in the days and weeks to come. September 17 to 25 tells the tale. Career changes or opportunities for advancement may present themselves now. If you are not happy with your work then it may end now as you seek out what suits you best. It is time to better your situation and enhance your education and experience.

Capricorn There is quite a bit of static in the air as the planetary positions are indicating tension, dissention, upheaval and change. Power struggles, alliances and allegiances are being formed and soon we will see where everyone stands. September 17 to 23 are intense days. The key for success at this time is the ability to handle changes by being adaptable and amenable to the will of the universe. If it is in your destiny, then you will rule, otherwise not so. All the while, the internal clock ticks away with not much work done in this region at a great and incalculable loss. Birthing and dying, dying and birthing, out with the old and in the new is the mantra of the times.

Aquarius You might be getting itchy feet as the urge to travel becomes strong over the next four weeks. Wills, legacies, joint and shared monies may all come into play in the near future. Your fortunes are changing and much depends on how you put yourself together this year. Clear up lingering health problems. Dietary changes and exercise regimes are all part of the package now. It is time to consider the long game and how you figure into it. External goals although important may not match up to attaining inner balance, clarity and harmony.

Pisces A pretty intense and demanding time has arrived. The planetary energy from September 17 to 24 could prove to be stressful and mistakes could be costly. The best remedy is to be prepared for delays or breakdowns regarding communications, schedules and agreements. Joint monies or inheritances may figure into the picture. The main point to remember is that Saturn and Uranus have formed an opposition indicating sudden shifts and changes taking place. Assist by becoming revolutionary in your behavior. Do something completely unique as now is the time to do so.

September 10 – 16, 2009

Shock, shift, change and rearrange are the prominent keywords that come to mind regarding the Saturn – Uranus opposition taking place on September 15. Saturn represents the old school and the old boys club, the tried and true way of doing things. Uranus on the other hand represents upset, chaos, revolution and disruption. Saturn strives to maintain the old ways while Uranus completely goes against these standards. Uprisings and huge changes come about when these two planetary giants stare at each other from across the zodiac. Saturn puts up restrictions and says, “Hey, you can’t do that, it’s not in the rule book”, and Uranus defies Saturn’s authority and says, “Your rule book is outdated and so are you. The changes must come.”

The last Saturn – Uranus opposition occurred on November 4, 2008 as the world witnessed the ousting of the old (George W. Bush) and the ushering in of the young and exceptionally charismatic (Barrack Obama). We know that the world has been teeter-tottering over the last several months with the state of the economy and the shaky situations in the troubled spots on the planet. A fall election in Canada sure fits the description with the old guard struggling to stay in power and the forces for change becoming inevitable and unavoidable.

British Columbians are up in arms over the harmonized sales tax and it may very well spell the demise of Saturnian Gordon Campbell and crew. Although both Saturn and Uranus carry somewhat villainous vibes, their objectives may very well have the best of our interests within them. Saturn seemingly brings death, disease, suffering, poverty, oppression and restriction. He also teaches lessons, though painful, they leave lasting impressions that eventually create deep wisdom. How many people have suffered a near fatal disease or illness and having survived the ordeal become very grateful, thankful and mindful of the miracles of life? Saturn’s concerns never come on suddenly but usually after long years of negligence and unbalance. If we have not paid attention to Saturn’s strict rules then Uranus comes along and blows the door down and we often didn’t see it coming. Earthquakes, tsunamis and unusual weather patterns are on the menu.

The main point of the times is to seek ways to streamline our lives and shake them up in a good way as we strive to get along within the family of man. We’re made the same, born the same way and carry the same blood in our veins. We come from the same place and we will undoubtedly end up there as well. Let’s learn to love a bit, extend a hand and show some kindness and caring. We will sort it out, no doubt about it.

Thursday September 10:
The Gemini Moon stimulates activity, business, trade and all other forms of human exchange. The Moon and Mercury form a triangle towards evening time enhancing life in many ways. Often when the harmonious aspects are happening we hardly notice, rightfully so, as it symbolizes a time in which dinner goes down easily, and time with family and friends is well spent as we wrap up another precious day. Classes and courses, study groups and all other gatherings related to education, politics, acting, music, dance and drama are benefitted. Cupid’s arrow may find his target.

Friday September 11:
Venus and Jupiter have formed an opposition today. Venus represents the people that we love, while Jupiter symbolizes the higher mind and greater spirit in Man. Today many will mourn and remember those that sacrificed their lives on this fateful and tragic day in 2001 that changed our lives forever. We will remember the unnamed heroes that paid the ultimate price. It is a day to weigh up our values and make the appropriate changes that we know will bring peace and harmony. The Gemini Moon continues and it’s a Friday so we will be in the mood to party as we frolic through the night.

Saturday September 12:
The mood may turn somewhat somber as a series of planetary aspects take shape and sober us up in a hurry. Possibly our frolicking got out of hand and amends are forthcoming. It may not be a good day to clear the air. Tensions are high and it may be best to let some time pass and tempers cool. Power plays and guilt trips won’t work out, whereas cooperation and consideration stand a much better chance.

Sunday September 13:
The Moon occults Mars just after 9 AM, PDT, heating things up. Plus Mars is in Cancer which is his sign of debilitation. It means that people can get crabby in a hurry and a small huff may very well morph into a major emotional storm. Fires and mishaps at sea are a strong possibility. Caution with tools, weapons and machines is a must. It is a good day to practice tolerance and compassion.

Monday September 14:
A much better day takes shape and we may be glad the weekend is over and we can get back into the rhythm of our daily lives once again. It is a constructive day in which much gets done with less effort than we may have suspected. The Moon and Mercury harmonize towards evening time bringing a nice close to the day. We can put our feet up and see if we can answer some of those questions on Jeopardy and hopefully catch a good movie before turning in for the night.

Tuesday September 15:
The Saturn – Uranus opposition takes place today along with an opposition with Venus and Neptune. Read the intro regarding the Saturn – Uranus phenomena. Some type of shift takes place as we adjust to whatever the universe offers up, be it a fall election, a big job change, a move or a new love. The list is long, but the day won’t pass without some form of important energy unfolding that brings changes into our lives. A birth, a death, the end of something, and a new beginning may be expected. Yes, death of the old and birth of the new, personally, collectively and universally. Love and creativity get a great boost somehow and magic is in the air.

Wednesday September 16:
Matters of the heart come to the fore. Today is the day to unravel, disentangle and sort through those concerns that have been building for a while. A shift is occurring as the dynamics for change are very strong now. Declarations of love along with other possibly shocking revelations are probable. Positive or negative, one way or the other, changes are in the wind. Go with the flow and wait till you know. The lines are blurry and not much is clear, but soon we will know what it is all about.

Aries September 12 and 13 are edgy days in which tensions may run high and it won’t take much of a spark to set off a serious bonfire of emotions. Tears may flow and anger may be expressed if you allow, especially on September 13. September 14 is a much better day and you can meet your problems and work them through rather than going through the roof in true Aries style. Changes are in the wind and you must ride it out and see where you land.

Taurus September 15 and 16 are important days in the sense that others may not be making any sense. Then again, possibly it’s you not be seeing the picture clearly. The impulse to gamble, go shopping and spend money is strong now. Matters of the heart and hearth are top of mind and it is time to go over the material once again. You may be behaving oddly, even by your own standards. Never mind trusting others, as you may not be able to trust yourself and your values. Hey, it’s good to shake things up once in a while.

Gemini September 10 is a good day as the Gemini Moon and your ruling planet Mercury form a triangle towards dinnertime. Lively exchanges take place as you meet and mingle with the people that inhabit your favourite spot, be it the coffee shop or gym etc. September 11 and 12 carry more of an edge to them and you might be caught up in the swirl of the world as you strive to accomplish all that is on your platter. September 14 looks good as the planets run in harmony today, while September 15 is another story again. It looks like big shifts and changes are about to happen as you adjust to the reality of the times. Go with the flow.

Cancer The Moon passes over Mars in your sign on September 13 and the combination is potent and must be handled with caution and respect. Heated exchanges are probable, clashes, crashes, dumb moves etc. must be avoided. Acts of heroism may take place and you may discover a courage that you always knew was there or at least suspected so. Fire, metal and machines need tending and attention. Otherwise, let the good times roll. Education, communication and writing along with other stimulating topics may be of important interest now.

Leo September 14 to 16 are important days that may fly by and you may be left in a daze. When the smoke clears you may wonder what it was all about. You may meet the love of your life and be swept off of your feet, your horse could come in and your ship too. The urge to gamble and get crazy is strong. You can be seduced, charmed, wined and dined. It all sounds good, but things can get wobbly and it may be wise to go slow until you know if what is happening is real or not. Certainly sounds like high adventure to me.

Virgo The Saturn – Uranus opposition taking place on September 15 carries important lessons for mankind and probably important lessons for your sign as Saturn is visiting Virgo. The Sun approaches Saturn and opposes Uranus on September 17, and it tells of a time of serious decisions regarding career goals, job changes and big moves, possibly across the country or out of it. For the stable, grounded and practical Virgos it just may be a time in which you take on a heavy workload which you may not mind. For the lazy nonproductive Virgos it is a time to seriously get with the program and get up to speed. Concerns regarding elders and their health and welfare could be the case.

Libra September 12 and 13 are days that will take some astute maneuvering in order to avoid heated debates and conflicts. I guess a lot depends on your mood these days and certainly there are Libra folks out there that love a good battle, be it a board game, in the board room and probably bedroom too. Fairness, justice and especially harmony are the goals. Venus, Jupiter and Neptune have formed an opposition and this is yet another indicator of high flying ideals, visions, compassion and love. It’s all in the cosmic blender. September 14 is good day to work your magic.

Scorpio Life seems to be a tad intense out there these days. Retrograde Mercury in square with Pluto indicates a time in which all kinds of secrets come flying out of Pandora’s Box. You may be on a mission of discovery, seeking and searching for the deeper meaning of life. You might be restless and looking for career changes and opportunities for advancement. September 12 to 17 are the days in which the above commentary comes into play. Question your urge to gamble and take chances. Possibly you’re bored and looking for some adventure. A hot secret romance at work could be dynamic and dangerous.

Sagittarius Just be ready to ride, as it is probable that the universe will be offering up changes, chances and opportunities that may spring from an event that you thought was unfortunate. It looks like a stirred up time for all signs as we constantly strive to adjust to the complexities of living and competing in our world. Keep your mind open. Education, travel and intellectual pursuits may be of interest now.

Capricorn September 12 and 13 are intense days that will have to be handled with some delicacy as others may be wearing their hearts on their sleeves. The energy is volatile and people will be touchy. Cloak and dagger games go on as all kinds of maneuvers are being dreamed up and executed. The Sun and Saturn cast good energy your way and although it is a most difficult time for all signs, I imagine that you will come through in your solid Saturnian way. You may enjoy and thrive on the challenges of the times. The next five years are of paramount importance in your overall career and standings.

Aquarius The planets are rumbling, especially your co-ruling planets Saturn and Uranus as they form an opposition on September15. Saturn strives to preserve the old order and way of doing things while Uranus demands change and ushers us in to the future. While this planetary drama is going on, Venus, Jupiter and Neptune form an opposition as well guaranteeing a very unique time in which love and creativity are highlighted. Romantic energy is strong and so are the urges for travel, taking chances and gambling.

Pisces September 15 to 18 are special and important days in which all kinds of revelations come your way. Dealing with elders and their concerns may come up along with other serious or onerous issues that need your attention. Possibly you are involved in the planning of important life changes as you seek out the lifestyle that you desire. Dreams that have strong symbolic information may be experienced. Music, entertainment and the arts draw your attention. Visits to those that need care and support come up now.

September 3 – 9, 2009

Thursday September 3:
Mercury and Mars square off today. These two planets are inimical to each other. Mercury rules communications, transit, commerce and negotiations etc. Mars rules impatience, aggression, clashes, disagreements, war, fire, exploration and courage. Mercury is moving exceptionally slow as he prepares to turn retrograde on September 6. Planets become more powerful as their apparent motion slows down and stops while going retrograde or returning to direct motion. This tells of a time of great activity and motion as we strive to meet the demands and pressures of the day. Plus the Moon is in Pisces and nearly full, bringing on a great wave of emotions to deal with. Heated words are exchanged and things said that shouldn’t have been said cause a domino effect. We will hear all about it on the six o’clock news.

Friday September 4:
The Pisces full Moon unfolds her impactful energy today, along with the Mercury – Mars square, the combination brings a wave of unique or unusual experiences for mankind to ponder. A healing takes place and we may witness the strength of the human spirit when under duress. These will be intense days for sure, harrowing in some way with all sorts of opportunities to show kindness and consideration in the face of inconsiderate actions. People want to express their emotions and get things off their chest under the Pisces Moon. The clubs will be full and the concerns of the society magnified and amplified in some way. Exciting, challenging and inspiring times are upon us.

Saturday September 5:
Tensions are still running high as the full Moon and square aspect between Mercury and Mars continues to create a somewhat hyped up situation. It’s the Labour Day long weekend and it just might be the perfect time to get away from it all and enjoy the ebbing summer days with our loved ones. The trick of the times is to be prepared and alert while we’re at the campgrounds or on the water or in it. Traveling to and fro may have its glitches and concerns. It is not the time to talk on the phone and twitter as you head out on your weekend ventures. Stay safe and play safe.

Sunday September 6:
Mercury begins to retrograde today bringing communication and transportation glitches that test our patience and nerves to no end. Heated debates can flare up suddenly and it may be wise to take your time and weigh your words carefully before you deliver them. The upside of this planetary configuration comes in the form of excitement and high adventure. It is time to party, relax and enjoy the awesome summer days. Let’s take care of each other and treat everyone as your brother and sister.

Monday September 7:
Labour Day has arrived and the Aries Moon forms a couple of nice aspects to Jupiter and Neptune in Aquarius bringing harmony and happy times our way. Say hello to someone, help another and extend a hand where you can. The Mercury – Mars square is still very strong and although we are having a great time it will pay dividends to just be a bit more careful and prudent in all that we do. Let’s enjoy the day and get home safe. Accidents and fires are the main concerns of this holiday weekend.

Tuesday September 8:
Today’s Taurus Moon brings a somewhat harmonious vibe that will help us cope with the logistics and schedules of the first day back to school. With Mercury retrograding we may find that many schedules and plans are off track. Again the Taurus Moon brings a rhythmic energy allowing us to move through the problems as we strive to get our lives back into the groove.

Aries You win the Astro lottery as the Moon visits Aries throughout the Labour Day weekend. September 6 is an exciting day filled with adventure and challenge. Tempers can flare easily and it may be wise to keep it in check. Labour Day is the best of all, as the Moon harmonizes with Jupiter and Neptune in Aquarius making it easy to relate to others. People are in the mood to party and have a good time, which suits you just fine. Special connections are made today as you discover others that have similar interests.

Taurus The Moon visits Taurus on September 8 and 9 bringing you into your solar high of the month. You get things done as you glide through the days with no problems. Oh, there might be a few snags on September 9 that will need your attention and care. Try not to overreact or overstate a situation. The Moon and Sun are in triangle helping to sort through, clear up and clear out any lingering concerns. Evening time is much better and you can put your hooves up and have your popcorn and pop.

Gemini The heat is on and you will have to be on your nimble toes in order to sidestep the material that is flying around as we move through this Labour Day weekend. A full Moon along with retrograding Mercury in square with feisty Mars is quite the recipe for disagreements and other calamitous scenarios to develop. The remedy is to keep things simple if you can, or roll up your sleeves and duke it out. Sometimes it is good to let it out in order for healing to begin. As Chuck Norris would say, “The best defense is to not offend.” On the plus side, the Moon is in Aries on Labour Day and along with Venus Jupiter and Neptune they combine and cast excellent energy into your sign restoring your faith and bringing mirth and laughter.

Cancer All full Moons are important for Cancer people as the Moon is your ruling planet, and when she is full you will be productive, active and creative. Mercury and Mars are in a square aspect as this full Moon takes shape on September 4 and controversies are bound to arise. Powerful clashes, crashes and exchanges may take place. Mars is in Cancer bringing a mix of testosterone fueled activities, challenges and other assorted and hopefully not sordid scenarios to work through. It also could be a time of great achievements, heroic deeds and selfless sacrifices. Stay centered, aware and awake. Say less and listen more, especially from September 3 to 5.

Leo It may seem like the world is spinning faster as a series of intense aspects along with a full Moon on September 4 whips up the flames and everyone seems a little wound up about something. Maybe we’re just intent on having a good weekend as we sense the fall season heading our way. Labour Day itself is the best for your sign and you may hold court or just hang with your loved ones. Venus brings her touch of class and creativity your way. It might be your bright light and steady strength that helps others stay the course and see the problems through to the other side.

Virgo The full Moon on September 4 casts plenty of light into your sign bringing revelations, action and excitement your way. Plus, Lord Mercury is squared off with Mars and you will have to stay sharp in order to deal with the material that will be swirling around in the form of gossip and innuendo. Possibly you’re just working hard, or hard pressed in order to get things done. Allow room for change as big changes are in the wind. The past is fading away and the future approaches rapidly. Certainly move towards your true goals and passions, for now is the time to put your plan for the future together, through hard work, devotion and dedication..

Libra Mercury and Mars square off as Mercury turns retrograde in your sign, and the Moon is full for good measure. All this takes form September 3 to 6 guaranteeing an active, exciting and possibly challenging time in which the gloves are off and the battle is on. It will take diplomacy, patience and fairness in order to keep a semblance of balance. It may be your wisdom and insight that sets the scales right. The pictograph for Libra is a blindfolded goddess with a sword in one hand and scales in the other, implying impartial justice. It may be tough to remain impartial but wise to do so. It may pan out to be just an exciting, wild and weird weekend which you might enjoy.

Scorpio The full Moon on September 4 harmonizes with your sign, which is a good thing as there are a series of intense planetary aspects going on that may have all kinds of people stirred up. Travel plans could be marred as Mercury and your ruling planet Mars square off on September 3. Career opportunities develop and you may be in demand. September 9 is the best day to sort through and work out any type of relationship concerns. Watch for overreacting or others doing so. Overall, it is a good time to keep on with finding your new direction. Deep spiritual changes may be taking place.

Sagittarius A mixed bag of planetary influences takes shape over the Labour Day weekend that may push and pull you in different directions. The full Moon on September 4 along with a Mercury Mars square indicates that tensions will be running high for all signs as people will be reactive, touchy and impatient. September 3 to 6 carries this energy strongly, while on September 7 conditions improve and people let down and relax a bit. You won’t be bored and you may even enjoy the drama and your part in the play. Career and home sectors are active indicating a possible change in those areas.

Capricorn Sparks are flying off of the wheel as life intensifies in many ways. You might as well rest up and enjoy the Labour Day weekend festivities if you can, but with the planetary aspects that are onboard you may be pacing the floor or circling the campfire as you contemplate the long future and your options, fears, enemies and possible goals. It won’t take much to set off a battle royale as everyone seems to have their hackles up about one thing or another. September 8 and 9 are your best days in which you can accomplish your objectives.

Aquarius It just might be your kind of time, as the Aries Moon harmonizes well with Jupiter and Neptune in Aquarius on Labour Day. Mixing, meeting and mingling is the life blood of any true Aquarian. Of course there are the eccentric Aquarius types that might be socially shy and not up on groups, crowds or gatherings of any sort. But for the Aquarius types that live for the opportunity to connect, communicate, direct, educate and share in all of it, then this is your time to shine. September 9 has a different tone to it and again you may have opportunities to share your wisdom and vision, although resentment and jealousy may come into play.

Pisces The Pisces full Moon on September 4 is pregnant and potent and no doubt will deliver it’s impactful message to humanity in some way or another. Mercury and Mars are in a dynamic square aspect on September 3 and combined with the full Moon we can expect a heightened time in which much is said and done. September 5 carries the same dynamics and will prove to be a time in which many life changing events may take place. Although this may sound a bit hairy, it just might be a weekend in which revelations and realizations bring a wakeup call and changes come in the wake of it all.
