This week’s headline items: Mercury’s Station phase ends on Wednesday evening — the planet will return to its normal pace through the sky, though now moving retrograde. The last Quarter Moon in Gemini becomes exact on Saturday evening; and a second Mercury/Jupiter opposition becomes exact on Sunday evening.

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


Before we get to this week’s forecast, please know…

If you missed my Forecasting Forum last week and still want to learn how to align yourself with the current energies, feel free to get the mp4-video presentation “Mercury Retrograde in Libra-Virgo & Mars’ pre-Shadow phase in Gemini” — and see how this relates to your personal Birth Chart. Here is what we covered in this webinar:

    • Mercury still stations in 7-9º of Libra until Sept. 14th
    • Mercury started its 3-week Retrograde phase on September 9th
    • Where do you need to re-organize something in your life to achieve better balance? What relationships need your attention?
    • Do you have a Sun-sign or Rising sign in Gemini or Virgo?
    • How will Mercury’s Retrograde phase impact people with planets or points/angles in 0-10º of Libra, Aries, Cancer, Capricorn, or 22-29º of Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, or Sagittarius?
    • Mars’ pre-Shadow phase in Gemini (which began Sept. 3rd and lasts until Oct. 30th)
    • What can you do during a Shadow phase that will help you during Mars’ Retrograde?
    • Do you have a Sun-sign or Rising sign in Aries?

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.

Star Members: check your email for the link to the mp4-video recording and enjoy watching it! I sent it out on Sept. 10th in the early evening.


Now, this week’s Forecast…


Monday, September 12th:

Monday, the Moon remains pioneering, fast-paced Aries all day. It will journey there until Tuesday very early morning. Life is an adventure; we’re more open to new ideas and enthusiastic about new projects. Patience is certainly not our strong suit at this time, but we can decide quickly and act immediately.

Our independence and dynamism are important to us right now, so we may find it hard to be disciplined or accept advice at this time; in general, our responses to others tend to be more assertive or even aggressive. If you find your foot tapping, try hitting the gym or finding other ways to burn off the body’s excess energy.

Monday early morning has lots of potential for healing around family, the “mother archetype”, home, and our past. We may feel more sensitive and insecure about what we identify with, and around our ability to be assertive; this allows us to give ourselves some compassion, acceptance, and nurturing in the face of our sensitivities and limitations (Moon in Aries conjuncts Chiron in Aries, exact at 5:13am EDT) 

Monday early afternoon, a somewhat challenging Sun/Saturn aspect becomes exact at 12:09pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build last Sunday afternoon; it will remain strong until Tuesday afternoon. This aspect operates more on an internal level. We feel uneasy about something, almost awkward, and must make a choice. An inner awareness needs to be developed to see what needs adjusting.

Our focus is drawn to the truth of the matter, but we could be pulled away by doubts, impatience, or by “accepting” responsibilities that aren’t ours (while ignoring the ones that are). We work hard but aren’t always recognized or compensated as we’d like and therefore sometimes run out of steam before our work is complete. Our life works best when we learn to take care of our most important responsibilities first.

Being of service and improving systems are important for Virgo, but Saturn in Aquarius reminds us that perfectionism or being overly humble will not bring forth new visions for the future.

Ask yourself: What future visions do I have for my local or online communities? Could I stay open to bringing in some new structures to fulfill my vision and create something sustainable? What is the worst that could happen if I chose “perfectionism” over “building a better future”? What role might self-responsibility or discernment play in all of this? What if I simply decided to stay adaptable?

As best you can, slow down, but don’t come to a halt — just because you’re not sure about something doesn’t mean it’s not worth taking a longer look — in other words, don’t discard things because they are different or new when you’re unsure what to do about them.

Ask yourself: What does taking care of my health in a self-responsible way look like to me? What future might I see if I slowed down? What might I notice if I took a longer-term view? How might clear discernment support my communities’ long-term goals?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 19-21 degrees of Virgo or Aquarius? 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 Leo or Capricorn (the Sun rules Leo; Saturn rules Capricorn). 

Monday night/Tuesday very early morning, at 12:53am EDT, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC) that lasts for a little over 6.5 hours until 7:39am EDT (Tuesday morning). Use this intuitive time to make some adjustments and find creative ways to work with the energies at play: On the one hand, as best as you can, follow your inner compass and take care of your own needs; on the other hand, deepen your authentic connection to whatever you are building long-term.

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday night until Tuesday morning ahead of time.
