MARS squares SATURN, this is a testy pair, you my feel like the thing that you want is taking a long time to take off or come about. Mars wants to take action towards desired goals or plan. Saturn blocks or limits you, so hold back, be patient. Keep in mind this does give you time to go over your goals and plans.
Venus is quincunx Chiron, a sore point may also be troubling you here, Venus is what you want, and Mars the action you take.
So maybe delays, frustration and angst comes along with this one.
Also some doubt and doubling guessing yourself, as Chiron brings in past wounds. You might find that this is causing some of the delays or limits around Mars really taking action. Check in with self to see if you are putting up barriers or walls, is this the delay/procrastination?
Can you feel it! Might be the key words during this transit.
Jupiter, planet of luck, expansion, magnifies all that is touched, is getting ready to leave Libra, and enter the deep, deep waters of Scorpio.
You will want too or maybe not? go into the depth of emotions, this is an inner journey for sure. What hides underneath may certainly come up with Jupiter magnifying all that is hidden.
Maybe an exploration of your inner most secretive you.
Pluto rules Scorpio – death – rebirth – regeneration and ultimately transformation,
This is a 13 month journey, so brace yourself.
This weeks Tarot card is The High Priestess – 2 – major arcana!
High Priestess is strong, independent, reflective, receptive, confident but most of all follows her own inner knowing.
She is intuitive, listens to her inner most feelings as her guide.
If you are seeking answers or guidance, she is asking of you to come back to self even after you have seeked from outside of you. Always come back to your own voice that is whispering from within. Trust here.
Look deep inside of yourself this week. You will get the answers, and knowing by being patient, trusting, using your senses.
There is a lot brewing within her, waiting to come forth, she can be seeking knowledge, she may even have a secret or two hidden within, waiting.
Sometimes I see her as an incubation period, before things start to manifest.
Only you know your true self, and this is your only true guide.
Be still and listen and know!
She is your intuition.

Mercury/Sun square to Pluto, as you all know square are intense aspects
in astrology. So….it may have an intense vibe to the days.
Mercury and Pluto may be somewhat of a mindf**k, you may not be able to let go of something running around in your head. You can have a very probing mind, as you want to go deep. You may want something sorted, the truth. Great for detective work, doing any psychological analyzing. Words may come out of your mouth and once out they may change or transform a situation.
Sun meets up with Pluto too, ego or identity may go through some kind of transformation here. Sun shines the light on some deeper issue/conflict that’s lurking under the surface.
Anything Pluto is always about breaking something down, to be built up again, the healing power of transformation. Usually through some intensity.
Watch the Pluto part which brings in the power plays, control issues or some kind of struggle.
Moon will be in Gemini during this phase, your mind will be quick, curious and over active.
Venus(what you want) and Mars(action, what you do to get it), both trine Pluto, deep soul urges, desires and goals may kick in, with some positive action, you can very well manifest with this one. Be sure to settle and ground your energy down. Face the future, know you have got the power.
This is building now. To this.
Mars and Venus completely connect up on the 6th, day of the full moon in Aries also. Your desires and actions may come together, this could be the point of the physical manifestation of what you want!
Pluto is involved always brings in the power of transformation, regeneration and healing. Being in a harmonious aspect it’s more creative, intense and passionate then on the disruptive side. Also it brings in a feeling of you have to go there! you might have been a little fearful before maybe it’s a taboo person or thing, as Pluto rules all of those things.
Get down and get dirty 😉 and have a really good time.
VENUS opposite Neptune, love, money and beauty, gets touched by Neptune’s alluring ways, its looks and feels lovely, it shines and sparkles in your eyes. But…. does it really?
Illusion, delusion, deception can float with this one.
Use this time creatively, tap into the magic of spirit, music, perhaps dream a little while.
Mercury enters Libra, you will want to be thinking, talking about Love, being more social and interacting with others. Love and relationships are on your mind. It’s easier to work things out, talk it out. You can get the other point of view. Collaborate, cooperate. Sun and Mercury both in cardinal air.
Moon in Capricorn helps to keep it real, grounded and to take it serious.
There’s some intensity in the air, things are changing, perhaps getting clearer perhaps not. You feel like you need to find a way or to know the way, forward. . But you can’t Saturn wants you to pace yourself, look at what’s in front of you. If things feel blocked, they will eventually get unblocked your job now is patience, perseverance.
Mars opposite Neptune – 23-26th, a level of uncertainty in areas of faith, idealism, trust and action can come into play. Neptune brings in the illusion or delusion part, its foggy.
You don’t know yet, which way it goes.
Mercury square Saturn, then opposes Chiron – 25-28th, brings in information, conversations that may bring up some pain, hits the sore spot, Saturn narrow things down, delays, limits, restricts here. Work with the facts, keep calm and keep it real, have a methodical mind during this transit. Also don’t jump ahead of yourself. Watch the negative self talk or talk, mastering your thoughts and mind.
Jupiter quincunx Chiron – 19-27th, making adjustments, maybe having to let go of something or someone. This may also have been an ideal, belief, attitude or even something of truth.
It’s a climb to the mountain top, and to rise you have to let go and change.
Moon in Sagittarius, you are seeking the truth, a way forward, a goal to aim for now.
Weekly tarot card reading, 18th Sept, 2017.
Oh dear, this week is the 8 of swords.
Generally this cards of limits, immobilizing, feeling stuck and not knowing how to move forward.
Are your thoughts keeping you limited or stuck. Fear and frustration can also be doing this, you get yourself into knots and just cannot move.
Watch your thoughts and step back and breathe deeply.
You just can’t see a way forward, what is the next thing to do, What is the course of action to take?
You just do not know, with this card. Future unknown.
You will get the information you need to get.
By just staying put for now.
Listen to your inner voice, trust, be patient.

Decks used – Tarot of Dreams – the Green Witch Tarot.
Balsamic moon phase, time before the new moon, you may really feel like winding down, feeling like letting go, that even apart of you is literally dying away into a nothingness. Ideally it’s an internal, quite time of the moon. You may still be releasing after the Full moon in Pisces, wrapping things up, the endings.
Moon has just entered Virgo, ground down into earthy realms, looking at the details.
Venus quincunx Chiron, love, self-esteem, beauty, relationship hit a bit of a sore spot over the last few days, some little annoyance perhaps got in the way of you really just enjoying the Venus/Jupiter aspect which was also about. You may have felt hopeful/optimistic for something or someone, but felt the pain, or disappointment of the quincunx. You work through the vulnerabilities and feeling uncomfortable, aware what it has brought up for you.
Just as Venus comes off her aspect to Chiron she meets up with Uranus, an unusual, surprise or sudden bit comes into play. You like excitement, some relief perhaps.
Uranus brings in insight out of the blue, the unexpected!
Well it’s an intense, twitchy kind a day, you can be feeling some stress and tension, maybe a bit of an overload, and you may feel tad irritated by it all.
MOON squares SUN, here you are weeding out what is no longer working for you, be discerning, make choices, leave what is working, polish up or on skills that you can take with you and work with. If it is no good throw it out, or recycle what you have. Not the time to start something new.
You may also be feeling the old is dying away and what is left?, what is the new something that is coming? Full moon in Pisces may have shifted something within you, a space is waiting to be filled, use the Virgo time to work, sift through what you got. Look and think about what do you want, do you need it or not. Plus do you really want to be doing it all?
MOON opposite SATURN, that just adds to the mood, emotions may feel restricted/held back in some way or you just feel like you really can’t move on or get ahead, again some frustration.
Moon is in Gemini, so this is a buzzy kind of energy anyway, your mind is quick, you feel restless, but you feel pinned down with this other energy going on.
Be patient, focus on the job at hand. Use the buzz energy to clean things out, or work it off and out.

MOON in LIBRA square PLUTO.
You want your feelings to level out, to find some balance, but the Moon hits into Pluto, so here comes that feeling again, more deep intense feelings come floating to the surface. Back into some internal conflict.
Best way through is to find the balance and hold on to that. And watch out for any rough, brooding, emotions that come up. Pluto wants to transform and regenerate you.
