Sunday, September 14. A strong thread of pragmatism fights with a desire to get away from it all. Let me know if you find a way to satisfy both urges. Venus in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn. This powerful alignment is not in the mood to suffer fools. We want order, a goal, and a plan. It is important to acknowledge this desire for productivity. And if you have any tasks to accomplish, you will be supported by this no nonsense alignment. However, the Moon in Gemini is highly distractible. Give yourself room, or at least tolerance, for losing track of the details, getting lost in daydreams, or unexpected diversions from the plan. Serendipity may help us achieve what we lost track of in the first place.
September 15—Last Quarter Moon: Evaluating. Is there a light bulb going off over your head right now? Today, gongs may ring, eurekas may be shouted, and final pieces of the puzzle may be found. This phase of the Moon encourages the mindset of taking things apart so we know how they are really put together. With the Moon in mental Gemini being supported by quicksilver Mercury and revolutionary Uranus, we want to tinker with what we know. Thought processes speed up. It is possible that a big aha comes from this excavation process. If we are unsatisfied with the progress we are making, we could get a little agitated. Gemini is an air sign and those signs are good at giving perspective. With the Virgo mission being about all the details, it can feel good to remember the big picture. How is your work of this lunar cycle coming? What surprises did you discover? What could it mean for the rest of the cycle? That is what we want to know today, and if we pay attention, we just might get some answers.
Thursday, September 18. Did yesterday feel like an important day to you? The indications were good for getting down to business. Don’t lose track of new resolves to bring wholeness and healing into your homes and the world. Perhaps we get a better sense of how wellness in our homes is connected to wellness in the world. Perhaps all it takes is to realize we are connected and our actions do make a difference. Take advantage of the Moon in Cancer for most of the day to finish up home projects, whatever that means to you. What kind of environment best supports your wellbeing?
