Shake Things Up a Little
This week’s headline items: Pluto is still stationing all week; the Full Moon in Pisces becomes exact on Monday evening; Mercury’s station intensifies on Tuesday; on Wednesday afternoon, the Sun changes signs from Virgo to Libra, marking the Fall Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. Last but not least, late on Sunday night, Mercury comes to a halt as it begins its 3-week Retrograde phase.
There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday evening (for almost 3.5 hours); Wednesday late evening (a little over 10.5 hours); and Saturday morning (almost 11.5 hours).
Before we get to this week’s forecast, I’d like to mention:
If you missed my Forecasting Forum last week… and still would like to learn how to align yourself with the upcoming planetary shifts, and prepare for Pluto’s & Saturn’s Station Direct phases in Capricorn & Aquarius… feel free to watch the mp4-video presentation “Pluto & Saturn Station Direct in Sept.- Oct. 2021″ — as it relates to your own Birth Chart…
“Sonja, any words I can find to express my gratitude for the insight you’ve given to me during the webinar would be an understatement; in equation form it would look like (My gratitude=Thank you^n)–Thank you to the n-th degree!” — Michaele D.
How can you best prepare for the upcoming Pluto Station Direct phase in Capricorn? How about the Saturn Direct phase in Aquarius? How will these planetary shifts impact people with a Sun-sign or Rising-sign in Scorpio, Capricorn, or Aquarius?
- Where does 4-9º of Aquarius fall in your own birth chart?
- Where does 22-26º of Capricorn fall in your own birth chart?
- What Houses are impacted by the Pluto & Saturn Station Direct phases? What about the Fall Equinox?

Now, this week’s Forecast…
Monday, September 20th:
Monday, the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces until 11:13pm EDT. This Moon placement often finds us more sensitive, intuitive, idealistic and imaginative than normal. We also have a greater capacity for compassion, sympathy and affection for all — but especially for those who suffer or can be regarded as the underdog.
It’s also a great time for releasing fears — especially the ones based on a sense of separation — and experiencing “oneness”. Feelings tend to flow more freely; as best as you can, let them — in fact, “going with the flow” is the best way to go for the next couple of days.
Monday early afternoon, a somewhat challenging Venus/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 12:12pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from Sunday early afternoon (Sept. 19th) on; and it will remain strong until Tuesday early afternoon (Sept. 21st). This aspect operates more on an internal level. We may feel uneasy or insecure in our relationships — and be faced with a choice — we must develop an inner awareness if we are to see what needs adjusting.
As you can imagine, this could make social interactions somewhat awkward; as best as you can, connect with kindness towards all (including yourself 🙂
We may also have a hard time making financial decisions that feel satisfactory. As best as you can, bring a good dose of compassion and understanding to yourself and embrace your own humanity as much as possible… and remember: like everything else, this is only temporary 😉
Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 10-12 degrees of Scorpio or Aries,? Or perhaps your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus or Libra (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra)? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect.
Monday evening, a harmonious Mercury/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 6:53pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Thursday evening (Sept. 16th) on; and due to Mercury’s Station-Retrograde phase, it will remain strong until Oct. 6th. During this aspect, we are more optimistic and realistic — which is good, since we see the bigger picture, communicate more positively and readily inspire others.
This harmonious connection strengthens our ability to connect and collaborate with others. We are tolerant of other perspectives and ideas, naturally avoid narrow-minded thinking, and feel at ease reconnecting with people from all walks of life. We might be drawn to exploring foreign languages, cultures, and countries.
This aspect also makes for quite a “heady” and idealistic experience — it’s all about thinking big and innovating. So, ask yourself: What are my expectations or attitudes towards the collective experience? What new vantage point might show me how to reinvent myself and my vision for “my people”?
Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 20-27 degrees of Libra, Aquarius, or Gemini,? If so, you will feel most blessed by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Sagittarius (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Jupiter of Sagittarius).
On Monday, at 7:55pm EDT, the Sun opposes the Moon in 28 degrees of Pisces. The Moon in creative, free-flowing Pisces makes an opposition to the Sun in detail-oriented, practical Virgo — the entrance of the Moon into Pisces on Saturday late afternoon (Sept. 18th) started the energetic build up towards this Full Moon — if you are already a Member of my online community, you may also want to watch my video on the subject: click here.
At the time of the Full Moon, we can ask ourselves: How far have we come since the Sept. 6th New Moon? What can we see now that was not apparent then?
This Full Moon has six planets in Retrograde motion: Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. This indicates a strong need for inner processing and aligning ourselves with those planetary energies from within. It’s a necessary phase of re-evaluation, restructuring, and letting go.
Things appear to slow down during a retrograde passage, as internal shifts must happen before we can progress; once a planet turns direct, we feel ready to move forward in that area of life.
Three of the six planets I mentioned above will start to go direct in October (Jupiter, Saturn & Pluto), and at that point, we will get the opportunity to bring all of our inner discoveries from the previous 4-5 months to the outside world.

With this Full Moon, we are also dealing with two stationing planets — Mercury & Pluto — Mercury in Libra is preparing to start its 3-week Retrograde phase on Sept. 26/27th, and is therefore exalted at the time of the Full Moon; Pluto in Capricorn is preparing to end its 5-months Retrograde phase on Oct. 6th, and will be exalted until Oct. 21st.
We are getting ready to retrace our steps (Mercury in Libra), and are seeking empowerment when it comes to our long-term goals or social structures (Pluto in Capricorn).
Now let’s first address this Full Moon’s polarities: The Virgo/Pisces polarity has to do with our ability to connect the head with the heart, logic with intuition, matter with spirit. So the question is: how do we integrate Pisces and Virgo?
This may seem a challenging question, given Virgo’s leaning toward detailed, analytical understanding, in contrast with Pisces‘ call to open our hearts and allow for all (including things that seem paradoxical to the mind). In fact, on an energetic level there is no separation, everything is interconnected — we need both left- and right-brain (the logical and the creative).

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 26-29 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini, Sagittarius, or 0 degrees of Aries, Libra, Cancer, or Capricorn? If so, you are more affected by this Full Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).
Monday at 7:55pm EDT, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for almost 3.5 hours, until 11:13pm EDT. Use this intuitive time to find a balance between logic and intuition. As best as you can, discern without judgment, serve with an open heart, and improve our daily lives, without getting hung up on timing or perfectionism, bringing love and compassion to all of life’s apparent curveballs.
Could you integrate a clear, observant mind with a compassionate and loving heart? What might you experience when your mind operates in partnership with your intuitive sensing?
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 evening ahead of time.
Monday at 11:13pm EDT, the Moon moves into pioneering, fast-paced Aries, where it will journey until Thursday morning. Life is an adventure, we’re more open to new ideas, and have great enthusiasm for 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…
