“Self-care” was the topic of discussion with many clients last week. In fact, it came up so much that I am concerned the significance of “self-care” may have become obsolete now that the concept is so trendy.
Planets enter the cardinal sign of Libra this week (Mercury and Venus to start), which means anxiety influenced by a dominance of mutable energy above will now be substituted for assertive action. We can finally pick a direction, and do so with cardinal conviction.
This will be a week of disillusionment. The bubble will burst at some point over these next few days, as we reach the Pisces Full Moon on Saturday, September 14th.
Two words kept coming up in my sessions last week: Detachment and Source.
This week brings an Earth Element Event. We currently have seven planets transiting the Earth signs of Taurus (1), Capricorn (2) and Virgo (4), all to be capped by a New Moon in the sign of Virgo on Friday, August 30.
Virgo season may be upon us. But before the Sun begins its annual ingress this Friday, the planets Mars and Venus will get the party started.
After a months-long retrograde that led us to reconsider the viability of our biggest dreams and aspirations, Jupiter, the planet of luck and fortune, stations direct in the sign of Sagittarius restoring momentum.
Healing energy is on tap this week as the Sun begins its transit of Pisces on Monday, and the Virgo Full (Super) Moon peaks on Tuesday. Both signs are natural healers; Virgo offers tangible fixes while Pisces transcends toward spiritual wellness.
Events that transpired last week have inspired a rather dense reflection on life. I am more aware than ever before of the things that are out of my control. I am also more starkly aware that life changes in an instant. I am sure you, dear reader, can relate. So many people end up in places they never thought they’d be, while so many others attempt to manipulate life so that it works in their favor.
