Monday, September 20

Speak up. Green lights are flashing today.

A Full Moon amps up the emotional side of reactions/thinking of us all. But the logical power in a Mercury Jupiter trine at 3:53 pm PDT carries excellent energy and direction to all our communications and decisions.

A Moon Pluto sextile at 9:45 am Monday morning sets up a stellar hour for important appointments and meetings. The Full Moon in psychic and creative Pisces pulls exact at 4:55 pm.

Luna then turns Void of Course until she enters fiery Aries at 8:13 pm. Clear skies follow.

As times change.

THE WEEKEND: September 18-19

A slight delay and then green lights for the entire weekend. The Moon conjuncts optimistic Jupiter at 2:14 am PDT early Saturday morning and then turns Void of Course until she enters creative and romantic Pisces at 1:22 pm. Wait until the Moon changes signs before you make any important decisions or purchases. Green lights come on when she enters the sign of the Fishes and sails out into calm waters for the rest of the day and night on Saturday. Pisces rules the feet in your body so this is a good weekend to buy shoes, go dancing or swimming, and to be near water.

      A lovely Moon Venus trine at 7:25 am is bound to bring smiles to the breakfast table Sunday morning. This is another good day to relax and recharge. Clear skies follow the trine until 3:26 pm when the Moon sextiles friendly Uranus setting up a good afternoon to buy a car, computer and anything high tech — all ruled by Uranus. A Full Moon perches in evening skies Sunday night with no other energy to deal with to disturb the peace. As times change.

If your birthday is this week (September 19–25). The Mercury Pluto square in the heavens today (Wednesday, Sept 22) becomes part of your new Solar Return, late Virgo and early Libra birth signs. That means you need to research plans and expenditures carefully and do your homework before you sign on the dotted line. Squares can turn into trines if you pay attention and look for answers and the truth — Pluto is the master of research and can help you unearth secrets and a better way of doing things in the months ahead. Venus in passionate Scorpio sits opposite Uranus in this chart of your new year. Unexpected events and relationship issues are likely with this pair. Stick to the truth and you’ll come out way ahead, and think twice about making snap decisions to buy something you fall in love with — you could fall out of love next week with Uranus influencing your tastes (Venus). As times change.

Friday, September 17

An unsettled beginning to the day, maybe something surprising, is likely with the Moon in Aquarius making a square to ruler Uranus at 9:45 am PDT. Clear skies follow and green lights come on for work or play.

The only other marker in the heavens is a kiss: Moon trine persuasive Mercury, exact at 10:36 pm Friday night. Here’s the evening to figure out your budget and to make plans for the future. Speak up and ask for what you want.

As times change.

Thursday, September 16

Today has a mix master of energies in the Skywatch. Morning hours are best for critical meetings, decisions and purchases. The Moon enters Aquarius at 8:23 am PDT and trines eager Mars at 10:19 am.

Clear skies follow until the kiss of the day appears at 6:52 pm when the Sun trines healing Pluto. In power all day long, this trine encourages you to clean up messes and fix things that have been a problem in the past.

Caution lights kick on this evening when the Moon squares superficial Venus and conjuncts selfish Saturn at 9:14 pm followed by the big problem, Venus square Saturn, exact at 11:14 pm. No love and no mercy in this lineup; it’s a lousy night to discuss problems or to meet someone new.

Keep it simple Thursday night, as times change.

Wednesday, September 15

Green lights. But double-check the details when the Moon squares distracted Mercury at 2:41 pm PDT.

That’s the only problem in today’s Skywatch and easily handled if you pay attention around this moment. Luna travels on to sextile Neptune at 6:01 pm and then trine the Sun at 9:07 pm.

An intense Moon Pluto conjunction follows at 10:40 pm and Luna then turns Void of Course until tomorrow morning.

Tuesday, September 14

Dreams? The Sun opposes dreamy Neptune at 2:21 am PDT early this morning followed by a Moon Mars square at 3:57 am (who let the dogs out?). Luna then turns Void of Course until she enters earth sign Capricorn at 4:34 am. Green lights come on at this moment for work or play as the Skywatch clears.

The kiss of the day appears at 12:20 pm when the Moon sextiles adaptable Venus. Mars moves along today and enters Libra at 5:14 pm; a placement that could put energy into finding a new relationship or generate arguments and splits in existing relationships. As always the choice is up to each of us as to how we use the Martian surge.

As times change.
