If you have been making a lot of forward progress during the last four days with hardly any mistakes or detours, then give yourself an A rating in cosmic sensitivity and awareness. The Universe has been in a rather positive mood since this past Sunday -- with yesterday's treasure-trove, the annual Sun-Jupiter union, still making waves of potential happiness and success as you enter today's celestial jamboree.
On the agenda is a flowing trine from the Moon in Capricorn to Mercury in Virgo (12:21AM) that can energize overall communications and literary endeavors. However, it immediately shifts into a void-of-course uncertainty cycle that lasts less than an hour until 1:05AM when the Moon enters airy Aquarius.
Since the next Full Moon occurs on Saturday, today and tomorrow constitute a 48-hour time-span to prepare for the enlightening vibrations seeking entrance into eager human hearts and minds during the monthly solar-lunar crescendo. Group projects, team sports, community activities, and joining global causes aligned with your philosophy of life are promoted during Aquarius Moon. Adding to the positive energy-field -- especially in literary and artistic matters -- is Mercury shifting out of Virgo and into Libra (8:46AM) for a much longer stay than usual (until November 2) due to a Mercury retrograde cycle that happens from September 17 to October 9.
The red planet Mars reveals some of its warrior-essence when it makes a dicey polarity to the Moon (9:25PM) -- an opposition that could temporarily inflame key partnerships. Fortunately, Vesta attracts Mars into a harmonious trine pattern of 120-degrees (11:52PM) -- giving investment planning and sisterhood gatherings extra support.
