Action planet Mars harmonizes with power planet Pluto on Monday, September 6, at 8:19 AM—a force to be reckoned with! Things that we truly want to accomplish flow seamlessly with no one standing in our way. We’re not above taking the back route to get there, either. If someone is making suspicious moves, they probably are.

While skepticism can inspire our motives, we remain hopeful and in high spirits. The two most positive planets in the sky, Venus and Jupiter, make the most positive aspect, also on Monday, at 9:05 AM. This is an auspicious day! We’re indulging in our thoughts, dreams, and philosophies. This is a time of artistic inspiration, and to expand our palettes. There is more than you can imagine!


The Virgo new moon comes on Monday at 8:51 PM: This is the perfect time to set goals and intentions for things that need to begin or change over the rest of the year. This new moon will connect with unconventional Uranus, so we’re wiling to try things that are outside of our comfort zones or break out of predictable patterns. We’re making peace with the chaos and natural order of things, finding perfection in imperfection and an acceptance of everything once it’s been duly processed. Also on Monday, the sun harmonizes with Uranus at 9:28 PM, revealing how authority has worked with resistance groups. There may be a stasis between power and revolution, or a resolution.

There’s a Mercury retrograde in Libra later this month and Mercury’s pre-retrograde shadow begins on Tuesday, September 7. Pay attention to conversations, purchases, and contracts that are initiated during the pre-retrograde shadow phase, since they’ll come back up again: First during Mercury retrograde, and again during the post-retrograde shadow!

Venus, the planet of desires, enters focused water sign Scorpio at 4:39 PM on Friday, September 10. Venus in Scorpio is attracted to things that are unusual and macabre. There is a willpower to Venus in Scorpio that is unusual for Venus, which usually likes to lounge and wait for what it wants. Venus in Scorpio, however, wants to control the narrative!

All times ET.
