Wednesday, September 22 — Today is the autumn equinox, when day and night are equal. The Sun moves into Libra, the star sign of balance, justice, romance, beauty and harmony, at 3:21 p.m. until October 22. This is the day of equality. Perhaps we ought to celebrate ourselves as equal men and women? Some are stronger physically and some are stronger mentally and emotionally. Together as a couple (like the couple day and night) we can find balance and equality on this planet, which is known for wars and dislike of others unlike ourselves. I’m looking forward to the day when women are no longer raped and harmed because someone else has the need for control and power over another. I pray for the women, teens and children of Afghanistan that their lives and bodies not be in danger anymore, ever again. Thank goodness for Patrisha McLean for leading the way in Maine with Finding Our Voices to bring necessary attention to domestic violence abuse. Visit Patrisha has inspired many women to speak out about their experiences. I celebrate their healing processes! Today until noon, Mercury is in a complex aspect with Pluto. This has been going on since Monday. Suspicious thoughts have arisen. You ought to consider doing more research. You ought to be certain that your old insecurities are not influencing your thinking before you come to a conclusion. Venus in Scorpio is opposite Uranus in Taurus until tomorrow. Electrically- charged romantic/sexual attractions take place. You’re excited. You’re filled with thoughts of the possibilities this bond creates. This would be an unconventional relationship as defined by you and your potential mate. No matter what it turns out to be, this attraction is playful and fun, for now. This aspect can inspire your creativity in ways you’ve not previously expressed.

Thursday, September 23 — Venus remains in the charged aspect to Uranus until noon. Have you met someone interesting? Has this aspect manifested your creative expression becoming more original? Mars moves into a super-fine aspect with Saturn until Saturday night. You can accomplish plenty. This aspect helps you to concentrate and become more organized. This works especially well for all those born: 1/25–1/29, 3/25–3/30, 5/26–5/30, 9/24–9/29 and 11/28–12/1 of any year.

Friday, September 24 — Mars and Saturn continue to offer increased concentration. You seem to enjoy the process of becoming more organized. The energy is a bit chaotic from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. while the Moon is conjunct Uranus, also in Taurus. Circumstances shift quickly. Your intuition will be clear. The Moon is opposite Venus in Scorpio from 2:15 until 4:15 p.m., which is an ideal time to relax and forget about your worries.

Saturday, September 25 — Your emotions are more intense, yet bring about insights you had not been aware of. This takes place while the Moon in Taurus is in a super-fine aspect with Pluto from 7 until 9 a.m. Forget about communications from 9 until 11 a.m. while the Moon is awkwardly aspecting Mercury. There’s no point in attempting to resolve an issue. It won’t work. The Moon will enter chatty Gemini at 8:36 p.m. until Tuesday morning. Your inner thoughts are comical, making you chuckle to yourself. Conversations prove to be interesting. You’re open to learning and sharing information that you find to be funny.

Sunday, September 26 — Great news! The Sun in Libra is in a super-fine aspect with Saturn in Aquarius until Tuesday. You’re relaxed and able to take your time accomplishing a project at home. You’ve got the patience of a saint. Another super-fine aspect, good until Wednesday, is also taking place: I’m referring to Venus in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces. I just connected two individuals whose astrological charts look to be a good match. Normally, I don’t do this. I’m curious to see what happens after they talk on the phone. Both are open to finding their true love life partners. Both are Pisces with compatible Moon signs. He lives in southern Missouri off the grid. She lives temporarily with friends in Arkansas, close by. They will meet if it feels psychically (these are Pisces words) right. She felt fine about maybe living off the grid, as long as he has a washing machine, which he does. I bring this example up because Venus and Neptune in a super-fine aspect are known to bring about love relationships with good possibilities. She had asked me about her chart previously in regard to someone whose chart looked terrible with hers. I was sorry to tell her the truth; I know she had high hopes. It would never work out with that guy even though he is smart, interesting and funny, but not a good match for her. That’s when I thought of my friend in southern Missouri who is a widower and a Pisces! I looked at their charts next to each other and thought…wow, this could be a match made in heaven. Pun intended. Oh, by the way, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. the Moon in Gemini will be in a super-fine aspect with Mars (and the Sun close by) in Libra and Saturn in Aquarius. This is an excellent time to be in a leadership role. You have more patience than usual. You express yourself with sincere respect for others. This is the perfect time for teachers to put together a program for classes you will be teaching during the week ahead. You have ideas about how to make learning fun.

Monday, September 27 — Mercury turns retrograde at 1:10 a.m. until October 18. There are now six planets retrograde: Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto; with the asteroid Chiron, that makes seven. This is the worst time to start a new project or business. Be careful not to make assumptions. This is the time when miscommunications take place. Electrical machinery is known to break down, including computers, phones, cars and trucks; travel plans won’t turn out the way you hoped. This is a good time for reflection and writing in a journal because it does favor efforts to increase self-awareness. Use your organizational power to accomplish your goals with the Sun and Mars in a super-fine aspect with Saturn. Things go well for those involved with building projects. Hopefully, Mercury retrograde doesn’t mess with your plans if you use electrical screw guns and such.

Tuesday, September 28 — The Moon enters family-oriented, emotional, sentimental Cancer at 9:34 a.m. until Thursday night. The Moon will be in a positive aspect with Uranus from noon until 2 p.m., bolstering your creativity and intuition. The Sun remains in a super-fine aspect with Saturn until Wednesday night. Venus and Neptune are still in a super-fine aspect until Wednesday afternoon, inviting unconditional love to lead the way. Venus is now aspecting Jupiter, testing your ability to resist overdoing it. This could be shopping, drinking drugging, overeating, gambling or acting out of sex and love addiction. The best advice is always to seek moderation and enjoy life.
