September 28: The Planet of Responsibility Goes Direct

September 28: The Planet of Responsibility Goes Direct

The moon is sextile Mars Rx at 12:18 a.m., and moon void of course begins

The moon enters Pisces at 8:34 a.m. and moon void of course ends

The moon is trine Mercury at 11:44 a.m.

After midnight, the moon in eclectic Aquarius forms an invigorating sextile with Mars retrograde in Aries. This sextile may stimulate a charge of restlessness and late-night energy. This aspect is the last the moon makes before changing signs again, which marks a passage that is best spent tying up loose ends, rather than creating new beginnings. This void of course will not affect the flow of the day, however, since it happens overnight and ends as the workday begins.

The moon leaves intellectual Aquarius to dive into the deep oceanic waters of empathic Pisces just after sunrise. This monthly lunar shift often carries us inward to explore inner mysteries and the realm of imagination. We may feel less like being productive in the practical sense, and more drawn to daydreams and creative visions. The moon void of course ends now, so the day is open to planting new seeds of possibility. We can use this Pisces moon to hone our intentions and visualize our next steps.

The Pisces moon then moves along to form a water trine with Mercury in intuitive Scorpio. This flowing connection between the emotive moon and Mercury in instinctive Scorpio can open new pathways of psychic vision and fertile creativity. This aspect is highly soulful, connecting us to our inner world and mysterious, evolutionary processes.

Venus is trine Mars Rx at 6:01 p.m.

In the early evening, Venus in Leo forms a potent fire trine with Mars in Aries, igniting passion and potent attraction. We might expect powerful new love encounters or a jolt of new energy into our already committed relationships. For the world, this fire trine between the planet of love and the planet of war may present an opportunity for resolutions and peace. Or at the very least, it can helps us conduct the powerful, revolutionary energies of our times in a more heart-centered direction. Though Venus connects us with love and affection, there is nothing mild about this fire trine. This aspect is very active and bold and calls us all to a higher level of courage and fearlessness, that must be rooted in the loyalty and noble values that Leo represents.


Saturn goes direct at 10:11 p.m.

Saturn in authoritative Capricorn makes a momentous turn tonight by moving direct again on its course around the sun. This change in Saturn’s direction is one of the most pivotal of 2020, as the planet of discipline and authority will be moving toward an epoch shifting sign change in December.

Saturn’s retrograde has put much of our personal and world events in limbo, frustrating our progress and limiting our ability to change, move, and prosper. The temporary bad news about this shift is that it may finally allow some of the harder changes of the year to finally go full course, creating new challenges to sort out before things get better. The good news is that at least we can all now move toward progress, even if this growth is slow and gradual.
