Conviction & Passion 


This week’s headline items: Mercury slows down (stations) again on Tuesday as it prepares to end its Retrograde phase Sunday. Venus changes signs from Virgo to Libra early Thursday morning. It’s time to take actions on our New Moon intentions from Friday on. Pluto’s Station intensifies on Saturday; Mercury comes to a halt and begins its post-Shadow phase early Sunday morning; Sunday evening, the first Quarter Moon in Capricorn becomes exact.

There will be three Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Tuesday early afternoon (for 7 hours), Thursday early evening (for a little over 6.5 hours), and Saturday early evening (for almost 10 hours).

Now, this week’s Forecast…


Monday, September 26th:

Monday, the Moon remains in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra all day. It will journey there until Tuesday evening. The energy of the Libra Moon helps us be naturally courteous and diplomatic; we are more polite now, as we seek the approval of others.

We want to maintain equal, fair relationships at this time and are therefore open to making compromises and negotiating.

Today and tomorrow (until 7:15pm) are an excellent time for mediation — but our need for peace and accompanying aversion to direct conflict could pull us to “yes” more quickly than we might like. We may also be able to see both sides of the equation so well that we can’t make decisions. As best as you can, find an inner balance with this and communicate what needs to be said with grace and charm — even if it’s “No” 😉

One last quick note: this is also an excellent time for anything related to visual arts.

Monday very early morning, a harmonious Venus/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 1:46am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Friday evening on; it will remain strong until this Wednesday evening. This aspect brings a fruitful and rewarding period in our lives. We experience new depths of intimacy (with an existing or new partner), we learn to appreciate the important people in our lives, and our value system transforms and evolves.

This is likely an excellent period for finances as well. Work we’ve done might pay off, and we are able to manage our finances better, with more attention to detail, planning, and strategy — as well as the elimination of anything that no longer serves us. We might renew a commitment, or bring new, deeper and more intimate energy into a relationship under the influence of this aspect.

Our sexual lives might get a real boost now, as we tend to want to connect on a deeper level. We might find ourselves strongly attracted to someone, almost to the point of obsession. If this aspect connects with any of your personal planets, you might just meet the “love of your life”.

One thing is for sure — relationships experienced now are bound to be unforgettable. While this transit tends to signal new or strengthened relationships, any relationship that ends during this cycle may leave us feeling liberated.

We will investigate the upcoming Pluto’s Station Direct phase in Capricorn (Oct. 8th) & Eclipse season (starting on Oct. 15th) — in relation to our own birth charts — in my next Forecasting Forum on Oct. 8th. Where are you being asked to transform? To trust the universal process? ==> Register here now (unless you are already a Star Member — in that case, you are automatically registered and will receive the link to join live on Oct. 7th and the recording of the live event on Oct. 8th).

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 23-29 degrees of VirgoCapricorn, or Taurus? If so, you will feel this aspect quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Scorpio (Venus being the ruler of Taurus and Libra, while Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio).

Monday early afternoon, a Mercury/Venus alignment in 27º of Virgo, becomes exact at 1:59pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Sunday evening on, and it will remain strong until this Tuesday evening. This is an excellent time to start sharing about art projects (or anything arts-related —visual arts perhaps) and any teaching endeavors. This alignment indicates an ability to communicate from the heart — and in fact, connecting to people we have an affinity with is essential.

We want to feel able to connect in a harmonious, peaceful manner and communicate on an equal footing. We tend to have a strong sense of fairness at this time and want to be in touch with people who meet us half-way. In general, we are very agreeable and enjoy socializing. We also thoroughly enjoy the written and spoken word — literature, wordplay, puns, moving conversations — especially if connected to our health and wellbeing.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following placements: 24-29 degrees of Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, Sagittarius, or 0 degrees of Libra, Aries, Cancer or Capricorn? If so, you will feel this alignment quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Virgo, GeminiTaurus, or Libra (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra).

Monday afternoon, a Sun/Jupiter opposition becomes exact at 3:33pm EDT. We have been feeling this aspect build since last week, Friday evening (Sept. 23rd), and it will remain strong until this Thursday evening. This aspect can bring an opportunity to open up our consciousness through other people. As best as you can, expand your perspectives about life, relationships — and enjoy the optimism.

Ask yourself: Who (or what) could motivate me to be more assertive in my relationships (business or personal)? Could I simply try out something new? What or who inspires me to try that?

The urge to grow and expand is strong, but we might overreach — and hasty actions could backfire. As best as you can, don’t expect too much from others or yourself; avoid over-promising, and slow down whenever you can. Also, use humor 🙂

Projects or ambitions may come to a culmination point, or undergo surprising changes; ask yourself: What insights am I receiving? Where can I go from here? What if I slowed down, just for a moment? What’s the bigger picture that I can perceive then?

Think back to March 5th, 2022, when the Sun last aligned (conjunct) with Jupiter in Pisces, and ask yourself: What was started then? What seeds did I plant around intuitive knowing, going with the flow, and trusting life? What might I see if I expanded my perspective around my interconnectedness with the Universe? Have those seeds sprouted since then? What’s my attitude now? What still needs to change?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (MC) or any personal planets in 1-7 degrees of Libra, Aries, Cancer or Capricorn? If so, you may feel more affected by this opposition. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Sagittarius (the Sun rules Leo; Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius). 

Monday all day & night, is our time to set New Moon Intentions for this month — if you haven’t already done so on Sunday evening. If possible, align them with the New Moon energies that I spoke about in my video — feel free to watch it again if you are not sure anymore — click here to watch my video on the New Moon

“Sonja, thanks for a wonderful Forecasting Forum yesterday. Full of great and useful info and easy tools to help us prepare. I had never heard about how to use the complete Mercury Retrograde cycle, from shadow to retro and back again so powerfully. I’m definitely looking at this retrograde and future ones differently. Thanks!” — Jaz M.
