Planet Power

Take care of the details until Oct. 1. Then you can prove worthy of the beauty and harmony you ascribe to. Lasting beauty and harmony require correct foundation. Breathe deep the autumn “air” of beauty, Libra. A lot of people are in love right now, have you noticed? Keep your eyes open and hopin’. Peace & Love Shall Conquer All. There are no mistakes. — VIRGO (8.23-9.22) Start something for a partner that peaks in a week. Make it BIG (Jupiter). Make it unusual (the planet Uranus). Make it blue. Shift power from yourself onto others, your brothers, sisters and lovers, for this next Full Moon on the Pisces/Aries cusp, Thursday, Sept. 23. Mercury is direct in early Virgo. Time at last to redirect and resurrect all the loose ends that seemed so enumerable and insurmountable last month while Mercury was retrograde. Take ’em on one at a time. Perfect each endeavor before moving to the next. LIBRA (9.23-10.22) One more week to work on background. If one takes care of the details, one’s karma has a chance of harmony. Your key day is Oct. 1. Extend your work ethic to include all of September. The Sun conjuncts Saturn at 7 degrees Libra (Saturn’s exaltation), while the Moon is square in Cancer opposite Pluto, all whilst Mercury is opposite Jupiter and Uranus. Whatever initiates then should affect this next two years of Saturn’s Libra transit. Music is key. Libra’s key is F#. In music theory, when learning to recognize pitch, one starts by recognizing the unique sound of F#. You must be the key to harmony. Time (Saturn) to tune up (Libra). SCORPIO (10.23-11.22) Plutonians: Now is the time (Saturn) to consider how you want to spend winter. Pluto is direct. Time to get back on track, Oct. 1, for the Solar/Saturnine conjunction in your theoretical 12th House. Meditate and do your Yoga, or die. Martians: How good can it feel? Wouldn’t you just do anything for the one you love? (You will). A lovely Libra and/or good-looking Taurus have a hold on you (!) and it feels too good to let go? How does the MOJO know? Everybody wants to be you, until the responsibility of running one’s whole Universe crops up. Enjoy your vacation until your birthday. SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.21) Good luck. I’d suggest you quietly hang loose for these next two weeks. You’re fighting tradition, older relatives, past deeds (transgressions?) and money. You’re dreaming (Jupiter in Pisces retrograde) if you think you can fight opposition like that and in any way emerge victorious. Your heaven is 2011. Start a dream diary and let the world take care of itself for awhile. Your color is purple/blue. CAPRICORN (12.22-1.20) The harmony you seek comes in two weeks. You know what’s required. You’ve got it wired. All systems are go, sayeth the MOJO. The Moon is in Capricorn until Saturday. Make Friday yours and stay up late. Something unexpectedly, groovy happens just around midnight. My God! Are you gonna unexpectedly (as the Moon shifts into Aquarius) get lucky? Work the weekend as long as you can then get back to work for these next two weeks. AQUARIUS (1.21-2.19) Should I go or stay? What’d happen if I went and did it any other way? Who can say? If you don’t go, you’ll never know? The Moon moves into Aquarius Saturday until Moonday. With the Moon conjunct Neptune and Chiron Moonday around 9 a.m. tears may have their sway. Let your tears fertilize your dreams. Make your wish on the Fall Equinox, Wednesday night, and dream as BIG (Moon conjunct Jupiter) and as far out (Moon conjunct the planet Uranus) as you possibly can, creating a happy Fall for you all! PISCES (2.20-3.20) Please read Aquarius. This next Full Moon, Thursday, Sept. 23, is on the Pisces/Aries cusp. The last Full Moon (Aug. 24) was on the Aquarius/Pisces cusp. This finishes your half birthday party. After the party, come back out of the Twilight Zone and join the rest of humanity on your way back to power. Happy Fall to you all, but Spring will be your thing. How you gonna get there? ARIES (3.21-4.20) You’re in love (someone/something) and moving into an “executive” phase, as your ruler Mars moves into Scorpio until Halloween. Scorpios are a major part of your karma until then. They’re looking to you for clues in exchange for your services. (Yeah, they are a little one-sided). This Full Moon (Sept. 23) is in earliest degree of Aries, so the next (Oct. 22) will be at 29 degrees Aries. This puts you in a pocket of possibilities. The whole month will seem like one long “blue Full Moon.” Mars and Venus are still locked hand-in-hand leaving Libra and lovingly embracing the excitement, intensity and depth of Scorpio. Get ready to get as Cosmic as you can, building to a Happy Halloween! Scared? TAURUS (4.21-5.20) Take a GOOD look at yourself until Valentine’s Day. Venus, your ruler, transits your opposite sign, Scorpio, these next four months. It’ll feel REAL good, but what a price to pay for so much depth of survey? As you are to the material world (“I Have”), you’ll blend/merge into the Cosmic All of Scorpio (“I Desire”). You’ll learn to see yourself through others: sisters, brothers, lovers. You’ll learn to love it. Maybe you’ll learn to love yourself, if you’re worth it? GEMINI (5.21-6.21) Now is the time to pick up the mess around your cabin, tent, apartment, house, home, trailer, room, grocery cart. Get your pad together and you’ll be ready for your “guest(s)” Oct. 1. Inside world now. Outside world then. Make it pretty! CANCER (6.22-7.22) Both this Full Moon (Sept. 23) and the last (Aug. 24) are in Pisces. Let your dreams take over, then put ’em into gear next Friday, Sept. 24. Until then, dream on. LEO (7.23-8.22) One more week to worry about the money. Soon it’ll be time to worry about the relationship. Music will be the key.
