Being “Courageously Yourself” With All Your Sensitivities & Insecurities
This week’s headline items: Pluto starts to slow down (station) again on Monday; from Wednesday on, it’s time to act on our New Moon intentions; Mercury’s station comes to an end on Thursday; on Friday, the first Quarter Moon in Sagittarius becomes exact, and Jupiter’s station ends; the Sun changes signs from Virgo to Libra very early on Saturday morning — which also represents the Fall Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere.
There will be four Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: until 12:58am EDT on Monday very early morning, Wednesday morning (for almost 4 hours), Friday afternoon (for 48 minutes), and Sunday late afternoon (for almost 3.5 hours).
Before we get to this week’s Forecast, a reminder…
Next week, Friday, Sept. 29th at 5pm EDT, we will be doing a deep dive into Eclipse Season and asking what we can expect of the first South Node Eclipse in Libra — which includes an exalted Pluto in Capricorn squaring this powerful Solar Eclipse.
If you are curious as to how this coming Eclipse season will impact you personally and what lessons might be in store for you on this next leg of your Soul’s journey, join us!

Now, this week’s Forecast…
Monday, September 18th:
Monday at 12:58am EDT, the Moon moves into passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio, where it will journey until Wednesday late morning. We feel things deeply and have “X-Ray Vision” and “Bullshit-Smelling Abilities”
Emotional authenticity is extremely important to us at this time; anything less than 100% emotional honesty could be perceived as flat-out dishonest. Once we feel safe trusting someone, we want to merge with them, preferably forever… as long as our trust is never betrayed.
The Moon in Scorpio urges us to uncover our own power. This occurs through subtraction — it encourages us to let go of whatever disempowers us. It’s an excellent time to look at “old” fears, limiting habits, or emotional attachments, especially those stemming from past traumas. ==> For more about this powerful Moon placement, see last night’s section (Sunday, Sept. 17th.)
On Monday, Pluto (the modern ruler of Scorpio) starts to slow down (i.e. station) again in Capricorn, preparing to come to a halt on Oct. 10th after its 5-month Retrograde phase. This makes its energy more exalted for the next 6 weeks, until Oct. 31st.
When an outer planet stations, its energy gets more pronounced; we become more aware of its impact on us — and this can sometimes cause discomfort. We are being asked to hang out with that discomfort until the planet’s energy has picked up speed again (around Oct. 31st).
Pluto is associated with our Soul Purpose. It relates to the process of empowerment — our ability to feel empowered from within through the experience of wholeness — and to our deepest passions.
It is also associated with transformation, for example, our ability to transform darkness into light or “death” into “rebirth”. Those terms don’t necessarily refer to physical death or rebirth but rather some sort of ending and beginning.
To get to a place of truthfulness on the soul level, Pluto will remove what no longer serves us, replacing it with something new — something fully aligned with our deepest passions and soul purpose.
When we resist the deep changes Pluto brings, we tend to suffer; on the other hand, when we surrender and allow for that process to take place, we will move to a place of greater authenticity — and feel a newness and empowerment from within.
As best as you can, take a closer look at whatever is “in your face” for the next 6 weeks. Look for what might no longer be in alignment with your soul’s purpose (your deep authentic Self).
Ask yourself: Where am I holding on out of fear? What habits, behaviors, or fears are holding me back from feeling fully empowered from within? What would it look like if I was fully aligned with my Soul-purpose? How would it feel?
When we confront our fears, we very often discover hidden gifts and strengths; use this time to see what’s in the way of creating deeper, more empowering emotional connections to your long-term goals, especially if you are feeling a disconnect with the current ones.
Ask yourself: What would I like to build out there in the world and leave behind as a legacy? Am I ready to make choices that are not based on “shoulds”? What would that look like? What feels emotionally authentic and empowering to me? To others? To society? What is realistic?
Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 26-29 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, Libra, or 0 degrees of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus or Scorpio? If so, you will feel this station more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Scorpio (Pluto is the modern ruler of Scorpio).
Monday early morning, we are likely to experience a sense of ease and flow, but may need to adopt a mature approach when dealing with our feelings — although a gentle approach might still be the best. We feel focused and can be very persistent in spiritual or creative endeavors.
We are invited to look at the long-term impact of how we connect to life and its flow and need to slow down and take our time if we are to manifest something that can serve us in the long run — rushing things will most likely backfire right now. Connecting from an intuitive pace, trusting the process, and going with the flow are all crucial here! (the Moon in Scorpio trines Saturn in Pisces, exact at 5:19am EDT)
Monday early evening, we have an opportunity to connect with others on an authentic level. This also provides an opportunity to think about the details that go into our daily routines and develop clarity around them. Finally, it’s also an opportune time to talk about things that could improve our well-being — this could include health issues or concerns or simply looking at our nutrition and what empowers us on a physical and emotional level.
What might become possible if you let yourself trust others 5% more? What if you used that atmosphere of trust to share practical advice? Or discussed your physical and emotional health and well-being? (the Moon in Scorpio sextiles Mercury in Virgo, exact at 5:52pm EDT)
