Moonday Monday, Your Weekly Forecast 9/17-9/23


Happy Monday!

This is our last week of Virgo season as we enter the harmonious Venusian sign of Libra on Saturday with our Autumn Equinox. The Autumn Equinox symbolizes the last of the harvest and the turning of the seasons. Here we begin to really feel the transition from Summer into Fall. This is a time where a lot of us begin to feel seasonal depression. But it is important that we remember the benefit of returning within in order to rejuvenate and recalibrate for the next cycle to come.

The myth of Demeter and Persephone is a favorite of mine and helps me to cope with the turning of the seasons more easily. There is a wisdom in the death of Summer. It reminds us that nothing last forever and that through the death of the season, we make space for new seeds to cultivate growth and new beginnings in our lives. A lot of times an ending is so painful, we forget that there are so many more opportunities that lie ahead. It is a mistake to get caught up in the past, or the days when you thought your best years were behind you. We can embrace the changes of the seasons being grateful for the past, while also finding ways to create memories in the present, and learning to enjoy being in the present moment. Find ways to embrace who you are and where you are at now. And think of all the times you felt what you are feeling and how you may look back fondly or nostalgically now. A meditation I did recently from my Kuan Yin oracle deck, asked me to envision myself in a field of blossoms and imagine meeting my future self there. The meditation asked that your current self and your future self embrace each other. I have done this exercise before with my present self hugging my past self, but not so much my future self. I felt a huge sense of emotion in realizing my future self is waiting for me, and she is so proud of the work I am doing now. It also helped me realize what I need to do in my present to get to that future self and it was an inspiring and motivating feeling.

Imagine this next cycle of the last bit of autumn transitioning into winter as an opportunity to align yourself with the goals of your future self. Use this last bit of Virgo energy this week to make a plan and get working.

Monday 9/17

Moon Enters Capricorn 4:07AM

The Moon in Capricorn always allows for us to get working on things in a very intentional and driven way. It sometimes can block out our sensitivity and empathy which is sometimes beneficial for putting our nose to the grindstone of accomplishment and not getting too caught up in our feelings. Use this as an opportunity to get things done that maybe you have been putting off. This is also a good time to connect to your body and focus on how you are treating it.

A harmonious need for affection is enhanced in the afternoon. We could feel a need for romance and physical touch during this transit.

Try not too get too ungrounded through this process but use this as an opportunity to let your imagination lead you to your next planning stages.

Mars in Aquarius Square Uranus in Taurus 4PM

This is a difficult transit that we feel in the days leading up to and after. Tension arises between our perceptions, beliefs, and how we go after what we need or want in the physical. There are some definite changes that need to take place, that will take place inevitably and we need to let go of the past or past ways we have been doing things. We may feel some tension or resistance around this and it is not unlikely that it will stir up some chaos around us. Try to embrace the need for change. Think of all the times you experienced a big change that lead you to something greater.

By the evening we may be enjoying more of our need for expansion and growth rather than feeling as resistant towards it. The tension may birth some new ideas that excite us over the possibilities.

Let go of a self that no longer is serving your larger goal.

Use this as an opportunity for learning and growth and be mindful with how you project your beliefs onto others.
