The full moon in a water sign makes everyone hormonal or horny. Pretend you’re Italian: If you don’t have a lover, drink some wine or eat some pasta and make love to yourself and if that doesn’t work, howl at the moon. – Dr. Toni Galardi
Today I went to my first Ted X in Asheville and heard an alarming statistic. Seven out of ten suicides last year were comprised of white adult men in mid life. I have often said, that of the three target markets I work with, the group most vulnerable to emotional and/or physical breakdowns are the sandwich generation, those taking care of children and aging parents.
When you add into the mix that our bodies are changing from a 3D matrix into a 5D one, it can lead to a myriad of physical and emotional breakdowns. As we build to the full moon in “cry me a river” Pisces on Friday the 13th, there a number of planetary transits this week that can feel destabilizing. Men are not the only ones wanting out. I have heard a number of friends and clients expressing thoughts of wanting to check out or feeling they are in a death process of some sort. If you can’t make the distinction of what is coming from an old ego construct needing to go by by and a desire to escape, it can feel pretty heavy.
I am participating in a telesummit starting September 16th on this very subject designed to reinvent the middle passage of life called:Midlife Mastery: Reignite Your Purpose, Unleash Your Inner Power, and Thrive In Business and In Life. And you’re invited to this FREE online interview series!
The Astrological Work Week Ahead
The work week may start out a little slow. The moon is void in Capricorn, Monday September 9th until 2:24 PM. PDT
09/09/19 – 1:30 am – slow Moon goes Void-of-CourseFollowing a waxing trine to Venus the Moon goes void-of-course for almost 13 hours. Waxing is the growing or progressing energy. Use this time to focus on any works in progress and set aside any new tasks or projects until after the Moon enters Aquarius this afternoon.
09/09/19 – 2:24 pm – slow Moon enters AquariusThe void-of-course is over. If you have set aside any new projects, you should be good to go if you want to get started on them now. Plan for delays as there are still four planets retrograde.
If you have any new projects or tasks that you have been putting off, you better get them started today because the Moon will be void-of-course all day tomorrow.
09/10/19 – 10:22 pm – slow Moon goes Void-of-CourseFollowing a waxing sextile to Jupiter the Moon goes void-of-course for 28 1/2 hours. That means the Moon will be void-of-course all day tomorrow, Wednesday, “Hump Day!” so plan accordingly.
09/11/19 – slow Moon void-of-course all dayNot only is the Moon void-of-course all day, there are no exact aspects today by any of the transiting planets. This day is best suited for focusing on your “work-in-progress” stack. Concentrate on things that you need to get finished this week or any short-term issues. Set aside any new projects, tasks or issues until tomorrow if you can. If you must tackle something new, proceed with caution, make lists and double check them regularly.
09/12/19 – 2:06 am – Mars square JupiterThis is the waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square in their cycle which began with their conjunction January 6, 2018 at 17 Scorpio. This energy is well suited for embellishing and finishing whatever you may be working on. The next Mars Jupiter cycle begins with their conjunction March 20, 2020 at 22 Capricorn, so you do have time to get this stuff finished.
09/12/19 – 2:52 am – slow Moon enters PiscesThe long void-of-course is over. Can you feel the shift from fixed air, mental bulldozer Aquarius to mutable water flights of fancy Pisces? Note any dreams, insights and sensations on waking. Today you can hit the ground running and tackle any new projects, tasks or issues you may have set aside yesterday.
09/13/19 – 7:04 am – slow Moon sextile retrograde SaturnYes, it is Friday 13th. This waxing sextile is the first exact aspect of the day. Whatever you are working on or dealing with, be honest and proceed with caution. Today is also the third day this month with 9 exact aspects; six by the Moon, so don’t be surprised if people’s moods seem to be all over the place.
09/14/19 – 6:43 am – Venus enters LibraVenus returns to Her second home. Here She may be more concerned about relationships with others rather than the aesthetics of one’s home as She is when in Taurus. With both Mercury and Venus now in Libra the challenge may be to make a decision. Weight your options carefully but don’t get bogged down in the “paralysis by analysis.” Don’t over-analyze. Still can’t decide, ask a trusted friend, family member or perhaps a stranger who has no vested interest in the outcome.
09/14/19 – 3:32 pm – slow Moon enters AriesIt’s Saturday afternoon and the Moon’s void-of-course is over. Give yourself a break this evening. Just exercise some caution with your feelings and emotions for in Aries the Moon may try to drive you into dangerous territory.
09/15/19 – 7:29 pm – slow Moon in Aries square retrograde SaturnA far cry from last Sunday when there were nine exact aspects, today there is just this one.This is the waxing first quarter crisis of action square. Choose wisely. Be honest with others and yourself when doing so.In summation, Tuesday and Thursday are the best days for firm commitments, however, if there is a meeting you need to take to save face but you actually don’t want to have go anywhere, do it on Wednesday or Friday. ?
This is from my friend, LA astrologer Jim Schultz on why Friday the 13th may have gotten a bad rap: ” For those who may be superstitious or just curious; why is Friday the 13th considered to be unlucky? One story is that it was on Friday October 13, 1307 that King Philip IV of France with the backing of the Pope, ordered the arrest of Knights Templar Grand Master Jacques de Molay and other Templars on the grounds of heresy, that they practiced black magic and scandalous sexual rituals. The real reason was that King Philip needed an excuse to confiscate the wealth and property of the Templar’s because he had almost bankrupted France. Eventually, de Molay was executed by being burned at the stake; but he had his revenge. It is said that he put a curse on King Philip IV and Pope Clement V; both of whom died within nine months of de Molay’s death.”
Conscious Death/rebirth into your next life purpose is a powerful gestation process that sometimes needs a midwife. I am extending my summer offering of a 12 week coaching package that saves $300 until the official end of Summer, Sept 20.
Wishing you the juiciest week
