The Stars This Week: September 26 - October 2, 2011
Shake Things Up!

A new Moon in Libra on September 27 begins this dynamic week with a call to make a few changes to your relationships. Then, on September 28, Mercury and the Sun conjunct in social Libra while squaring powerful Pluto, at which point you'll want to know what you're talking about before you speak. And make sure you recognize your limits as energetic, enthusiastic Mars squares Jupiter on October 2, when you'll have plenty to do!

September 27: New Moon in Libra
A new Moon is always a good time to put energy toward something you'd like to see become more important in your life. Libra brings a relationship focus, while this particular new Moon contains a number of dynamic and challenging aspects; given all that's going on, it will be necessary for you to leave room for change. Revolution is in the air now as both Uranus and Pluto connect to the Sun and Moon. With Pluto's square, don't try to hold onto people who are no longer worth your time and effort. Uranus opposes this new Moon, lending an exciting, yet unpredictable energy -- it's time to shake things up! Mercury is in the mix as well, and its conjunction to the new Moon provides plenty of interesting conversations. Just rest assured that the next full Moon will offer an opportunity to stand back, take a deep breath and plot your next move.

September 28: Mercury and the Sun conjunct each other and square Pluto
On August 16, retrograde Mercury formed a conjunction with the Sun in Leo. At that time, you received information you were unable to put to good use ... but hopefully you at least used the intervening period for research. Now, these two planets come together again, this time in social Libra, and finally a plan comes together for you! While it's time to reap the benefits of all the conversations, agreements and ideas you've had over the last couple months, you'll need to keep in mind the square to Pluto. This aspect describes an intense conversation, while also demonstrating that people can possess strong points of view right now. Speak up if you must, but keep your mouth closed in case what you say won't help your situation.

October 2: Mars squares Jupiter
This is a very energetic duo, and you're likely to have a lot of irons in the fire! Mars in Leo is strong; it can also be quite showy while soaking up the limelight. Jupiter in Taurus, meanwhile, is practical and prefers that you take a sensible view of your material circumstances. During this square, keep an eye on your financial bottom line. Remember: If you can watch out for any tendencies to overcommit or overdo things, you'll get a lot done!
