September 14: Growing and Evolving

September 14: Growing and Evolving

The moon is square Uranus Rx at 2:33 a.m.

The moon is sextile Mercury at 7:53 a.m.

In the early morning, the spicy Leo moon forms a catalyzing square aspect with unpredictable Uranus in Taurus. This edgy square infuses the pre-dawn hours with flashes of insight, and surprises, that may wake some of us up rather early. There is an uncanny buzz in the air that feels electric and activating. We may follow our creative impulses, or we may have to sit with some unusual or unexpected feelings. The mood may be unnerving, or exciting, or perhaps a little bit of both.

Monday then begins with a collaborative sextile aspect between the moon in proud Leo and Mercury in social Libra, setting up the day for conversation and connection. We may feel inspired and curious, and even unusually talkative. This aspect is excellent for troubleshooting and brainstorming, as the moon in fiery Leo stokes creativity, and Mercury in airy Libra activates the intellect. Ideas may flow faster than we can capture them, but the best ones will take root if we are ready to make the most of this fleeting, yet stimulating aspect.


The sun is trine Pluto Rx at 4:09 p.m.

The rest of this upbeat day is cosmically quiet, until the earth trine between the sun in analytical Virgo and Pluto in determined Capricorn in the late afternoon. This trine brings our energies and perceptions into productive contact with Pluto’s themes of power and transformation. We may find the early evening opens up opportunities to strategize, helping us organize our material affairs.

This aspect may also activate in-depth psychological exploration, where a part of our psyche comes into the light of our conscious awareness. We may feel a little more whole and confident today, as if a part of our identity has been recovered from the shadows, and reintegrated into our ego-expression. This earth trine also invites us to reflect on all the ways we have grown and evolved this year, and what we have been able to build despite challenges and uncertainty.
