August 28 through September 3, 2017

It’s clear sailing this week, which is a relief after all the activity of last week’s solar eclipse! Monday’s Scorpio Moon will put us in a reflective mood, so if we have work that needs to be done on the physical level, it’s okay to put that off till later in the week. Tuesday and Wednesday’s Sagittarius Moon will put us in a playful mood, lightening the heaviness of the last few weeks. Once the Moon marches into Capricorn on Thursday, we’ll get busy playing catchup, as a lot of things have gone unattended the last week or so. Just keep in mind that Mercury is still retrograde, so watch out for technical problems or miscommunication. On an up note, this is a great time to go back and try some new ways to problem solve or resolve troublesome situations from a different angle. Practice “being different” when the Moon moves into Aquarius on Sunday. Let your unique take on the world (and on yourself) shine brightly!

September 4 through September 10, 2017

We can expect a busy week ahead, not just because there is so much to do, but because Mars will move into Virgo, Mercury will resume forward motion and right after that, the Moon will peak full in Pisces. So if you’re lucky enough to have Labor Day off on Monday, I recommend you take full advantage before the “planets hit the fan!” so to speak. Mars will enter the meticulous sign of Virgo on Tuesday, turning our attention to details and organization. Though a noble effect, it could be a little hard to pull off with Mercury resuming forward motion the same day and a full Moon preparing to peak in a water sign on Wednesday. My advice? Take lots of notes and be patient! We may not be able to get back on track until Friday, making for a super busy day, and could find ourselves working over the weekend as the Taurus Moon helps to stabilize the atmosphere. So this week could give new meaning to the word “labor”, but it’s all good news for the rest of the month as great progress is sure to be made!

September 11 through September 17, 2017

A little calmer and a lot more productive than last week, this week promises to be smooth sailing. The Moon’s travels through Gemini will restore clarity for the first three days of the week, then drift into Cancer on Thursday to restore emotional balance. The fun begins over the weekend, as the Leo Moon puts us in the mood to socialize and indulge our creative and romantic sides! As the Sun continues through the heart of Virgo, we’ll still be busy organizing, purging and rearranging things, clearing space for Spirit to present us with new options and ideals for the future as soon as next week! 

September 18 through September 24, 2017

Major shifts are on the horizon this week, and with a new Moon and two planets changing signs, it’s the ideal time for new beginnings, fresh starts and a recommitment to becoming our best selves ever! The week starts out on an intense note under a Virgo Moon, making the motto “details, details” take on a new meaning. Venus joins the Sun and Moon in this meticulous sign on Tuesday, where it will spend the next four weeks encouraging us to take action to love ourselves more and initiate healthier habits and boundaries. Wednesday’s new Moon in Libra also adds an insistent air that we reclaim our balance and make a fresh start, so it’s pretty clear there’s a theme going on here, right? The Sun makes it’s annual entry into Libra on Friday, marking the equinox and start of a new season, autumn in the northern hemisphere (harvest time) and spring in the southern half of the globe (rebirth). Wherever you live on the planet, it’s a time of renewal and new focus, so embrace the element of change in the heavens and remember that you are the architect of your own destiny!

September 25 through October 1, 2017

Things could get a little glitchy the first three days of the week as Pluto slows to a crawl and prepares to go direct on Thursday. Though a change in direction for this outermost planet can be subtle, after 5 months of backward motion, we could see breakthroughs come in at a moment’s notice. Luckily we’ll have a Sagittarius Moon on Monday and Tuesday, adding a lighter touch to our movements, thoughts and emotions. That will make it easier to weather any unexpected changes that come along. Wednesday is the best day to get things done, as the Capricorn Moon urges us to be more productive and grounded in all we do. We can prepare for some fun when Mercury moves into Libra on Friday, where it will spend the next three weeks evoking our charming and witty sides. In the sign of the scales, we’ll wax elegant, making us more persuasive and endearing to others. An Aquarius Moon rules the weekend, so make it a point to reconnect with friends, do things differently and take advantage of any spontaneous invitations or adventures that come your way!
