Tackle the hard job first thing while the Skywatch Is positive and clear.

The Moon sextiles healing Pluto at 4:50 am PDT and then sextiles dependable Saturn at 10:29 am. Caution lights come on a minute later as Luna turns Void of Course until she enters feisty Aries at 7:47 pm this evening.

Hold off on making critical and important decisions and purchases while the Moon is V/C, especially with rash Mars still in Retrograde until November 13, right on through the election.

We are lucky that this Rx cycle only happens every other year. You can note the next Mars Retrograde: Oct 31, 2022, to Jan 13, 2023, and will be in the sign of the Twins, Gemini.

Tuesday, September 29

Caution lights. Caution lights.

We saw Saturn begin to move forward in his orbit yesterday. We say he is now “stationary direct” but barely moving. And today Retrograde Mars in impatient Aries comes along and squares “take your time” Saturn at 2:49 pm PDT.

It’s a hard square because Saturn is a sitting duck. Accidents, conflicts, breakdowns, something frustrating are the signature of this square. Temper tantrums and boo-boos on the home-school front tend to be a common event as well. We do get some relief Tuesday night when the Moon sextiles upbeat Jupiter at 7:40 pm and then conjuncts dreamy, unfocused Neptune at 10:00 pm.

As times change.

Monday, September 28

Raise your flag and speak up on Monday.

The Moon is Void of Course from early hours until she enters psychic and creative Pisces at 8:34 am PDT Monday morning. But green lights come on at this moment and this day has promise.

A trine between the Moon and clever Mercury at 11:44 am offers a stellar moment to make in important call or purchase. The kiss of the day follows as adaptable Venus trines Retrograde Mars at 6:01 pm. People and matters of the past often resurface during Rx cycles and if they do on Monday, it’s likely to be a positive experience with Venus in the mix.

Another piece of good news is announced in the heavens at 10:12 pm when reliable Saturn ends a long Retrograde cycle that started last May 11. Just take your time getting major projects moving today. I’ll tell you why tomorrow.

As times change.

Sunday, September 27

Sunday’s Skywatch is quiet and uneventful. Green lights are up and the only moment of doubt or concern appears in the heavens at 10:04 pm PDT when the Moon opposes sweet Venus, and you realize “somebody” already polished off the ice cream in the freezer. Any guesses? I know who did it at our house. As times change.

If your birthday is this week (September 27–October 3)

Your ruler, Venus, is in romantic and creative Leo in your new Solar Return, Libra. This placement puts you on stage in some way if you will step out and accept the chance, and you’ll do well. Eager Mars in fiery Aries makes a trine to likeable Venus in this chart of your new year. He brings energy and the talent to put new plans and ideas into motion. Clever Mercury is in Scorpio in this new SR. Studying the occult in any way could give you some real insights into your nature in the months ahead, Libra. This also gives you a boost in solving problems and digging out the truth in a situation. Plus, you’ve got four planets in earth signs—you can turn ideas into fact and profit this year, Libra. Times have changed.

The early bird gets the worm.

A lovely trine between the Sun and Moon at 6:30 am PDT kicks on green lights Saturday morning. And with the Moon in Aquarius, it’s a good day to get in touch with your friends and to buy/deal with computers, cars, and all high tech gadgets—all supported by Aquarius.

The only quack in the heavens on Saturday shows up at 6:01 pm when the Moon squares rebellious and contrary Uranus. Sidestep a hassle then and you’ll enjoy clear skies for the rest of Saturday evening.

Friday, September 25

Use a light touch this morning. Caution lights are up. Reactions to your plans and ideas may meet some resistance when the Moon conjuncts stubborn Pluto at 9:09 am PDT this morning.

Same story when Luna travels on to conjunct conventional Saturn at 2:26 pm. A touch of Impatience and rude behavior speaks up as the Moon squares Retrograde Mars at 4:12 pm. And it could turn into an argument when the Moon squares Mercury at 8:36 pm Friday night.

Luna then turns Void of Course until she enters Aquarius at 11:08 pm. A chance for peace begins then.
