Are you Mad yet? Your Astrocast 9/28-10/4

Happy October lovelies! 

When I began looking at the transits for this week I couldn't help but think of the Mad Hatter archetype from Alice in Wonderland. I feel like every week this year has been insane, and at this point it feels comical, despite how not funny it really is. The fact that it is already the end of September is blowing my mind! This year over all feels like such a blur. So many changes I have endured personally, but in succession with so many changes globally. I feel eternally grateful that I have had astrology to ground me during this time, and I hope despite the simplicity of my writing in this blog, that for you the reader, there has been some solace in knowing the astroweather of each week this year. When I first began writing these forecasts it was really a study exercise for myself. I wanted to develop a stronger intuitive relationship to the transits, as well as learn them more efficiently in relation to the frequency of how it related to a broader scope in life, not just myself. While I find individual horoscopes to be quite fun, I feel that there is more to the flow of the transits and the Moon cycle for us to understand in regard to the collective influence. 

In my first automatic writing channeling sessions with my spirit guides, I asked what I came to this life for. I was told a number of things, but one of them was to study the Moon. I was told that I was to do this from a more scientific perspective. While I am not studying astronomy, I do feel there is something in studying the cycles and energy patterns of the Moon from an astrological perspective is important for us to understand life on this planet. It plays such a key role in how we humans have observed time. 

With our Full Moon in Aries hitting this week, facing our relationship to ourselves in relation to how we view partnership is a highlight. This entire year there has been an emphasis on our relationship to the masculine polarity. The Patriarchy. 2020 collectively is a year 4, The Emperor card in the Tarot. Which happens to be ruled by Aries and Saturn. With the Saturn/Pluto conjunction starting the year off, and us being in an Emperor year, with Chiron the wounded healer transiting Aries, we are facing wounds within the divine masculine archetype, and having to reflect on where our own masculine energy has been misplaced or misused at times. This could be where we do not empower ourselves enough in our masculine or Yang divinity, or where we overly assert or dominate others. Themes we have been reflecting on the whole year as misuse of power becomes a central theme to this ever changing world. 

Saturn our planet of structure stations direct on Monday, and Pluto our planet that represents the concept of “power” stations direct. Personally I felt my power was completely stripped away when Pluto went retrograde this year. Every plan I had felt halted. I felt completely at a loss for words with what was happening in our world, and it has been a daily struggle to find ambition, meaning, and inspiration with my plans and dreams. With Pluto stationing direct, we may begin to revisit some of those things that were put on the back burner. We may begin to take control of our lives in ways that fit more of where we currently are in life. There is a new normal we have found despite nothing being normal. We are having to push on and forward despite what unknown future awaits us. 

Communication may be difficult this week with loved ones, relationships, and coworkers. We could feel burnt out, frustrated, irritable, and just plain over it. This is a good time to get organized with your life when it comes to your finances and material goals as best you can. It is also a good time to cut out anyone or anything that is no longer working for you. 

Be prepared to have a lot of energy this week that needs release. Find healthy ways to get your anger out. Kundalini yoga is a positive outlet for anger, as well as spending time outside in nature. Wishing you all many Full Moon blessings. Check yourself before you wreck yourself! Do something that empowers you in yourself. Stand up for yourself, but also know when to stand down!

Monday 9/28

Moon void of course in Aquarius sextile Mars rx in Aries 12:18 am

Moon enters Pisces 8:34 am

Moon trine Mercury in Scorpio 11:44 am

Venus in Leo inconjunct Saturn rx in Capricorn 6:01 pm

Moon inconjunct Sun in Libra 9:14 pm

Saturn stations direct in Capricorn 10:11 pm

We start our week out with a bang! Venus in Leo makes a hard aspect to Saturn just a few hours before Saturn stations direct Capricorn. Saturn went retrograde back on May 13th of this year, so we have had an intense Summer where much has been up for review in regard to our workflow and structures in place. With Venus making a hard aspect to Saturn today, we could feel like our ego is feeling conflicted with the boundaries or structures we currently have in place in our lives. It requires strength to fulfill responsibilities that maybe are not in line with who we feel we are at our core level. I know for me there are always a lot of obligations I have to the structure of my life that at times feel crushing to my creative spirit. I have to often work extra hard to reinspire myself with mundane weekly tasks that require my energy when it's really the last thing I want to give energy to. The benefit of persevering and completing these mundane tasks is that if it helps you to fulfill a bigger goal or dream, then it helps contribute to the strong foundation you are building for yourself later. Last year the Turtle was a large totem of my life. I had to learn how to slow down, be patient, and chip away at goals, rather than rush into them. While this is a lesson I am still learning, I feel like I value the mundane structure of my day in a way I never could have imagined even just a few years ago. With Venus making an inconjunct to Saturn, and Saturn stationing direct, we may have to check in with our goals, our work life, and with what we need/ want at a heart level. It's ok to change things up, and often with how things are in the world, most of us do not have a choice. We have to see what structures, while some feel hindering, are helping the bigger picture, and what structures are just not in line with our hearts and need to be restructured or let go of all together. Find a way to balance what your heart needs, with what responsibilities also call to your attention. 

Tuesday 9/29

Moon in Pisces

Moon sextile Uranus rx in Taurus 3:58 am

Sun in Libra opposition Chiron rx in Aries 1:44 pm

Mars rx in Aries square Saturn in Capricorn 2:50 pm

Moon sextile Jupiter rx in Capricorn 7:40 pm

Moon conjunct Neptune rx in Pisces 10 pm

Lots of tension in the astro weather today with Mars making a hard aspect to Saturn. This is a day where we need to work cautiously and be mindful with how we assert ourselves within our working dynamic. With the Sun in opposition to Chiron, we could have to face areas within ourselves we may have been avoiding. Confronting our relationship to our own identity, especially in relation to others is important, as when we are triggered and reactive, it often speaks to an insecurity or trauma we are having that has been established from potentially a larger issue. Try your best to keep a cool head today. Deep breaths and doing some form of exercise is good. There is potential to hurt yourself so be extra mindful with how you move your body. Don’t rush anything today.
