Sept. 9 – Oct 2: Mercury turns retrograde at 11:38 p.m. Mercury will be turning direct on Oct. 2 at 8:38 p.m. Be prepared. Don’t sign a legal document or have an important discussion with a lawyer. Attention to detail and trivial facts ought to be considered. Expect delays and obstacles. Be pleasantly surprised if they don’t take place. Think things out carefully if you have to give a talk or teach. Do necessary research. Encourage students to think for themselves.

Sept. 9 – 11: The Sun in Virgo is in a superfine aspect to Uranus in Taurus. This is good news for all of you who are independent thinkers. There is an excellent flow of energy taking place. Enjoy this aspect because it increases the freedom to be in tune with your True Self.

Friday, Sept. 9 at 6 a.m.: The Full Moon will take place. The Moon is at 17 degrees of Pisces close to Neptune in Pisces. This is opposite the Sun at 17 degrees of Virgo. Honor your psychic awareness. Don’t rely on your brilliant intellectual power. This is the time to allow yourself to trust your psychic sensitivity because it will bring you answers to questions that your intellect cannot clarify for you. Be aware that there is much confusion going on as to what are the facts? Opinion ought not slip and slide into reporting but nowadays it certainly does. Just the facts please. Let us the public decide for ourselves what we think. You may have dreams that reveal the future. Some do. I remember back to 911 and was told by many in different states of this country that they had had dreams months before and knew this terror at the Twin Towers would take place. I know, it’s eerie. I had a vision today; it went like this…” Red alert…” That’s all I recall right now; there was more to it. I hope it’s not the nuclear power plant in Ukraine.

Sept. 11 & 12: Frustrations with obstacles to forward momentum will define these two days with Mercury already retrograde. These two days will prove to be the most irritating of all the retrograde phase for us. The Sun in Virgo is in an awkward aspect with Saturn in Aquarius which is known for delays and frustration. Try to be patient, yet persistent. Don’t waste your energy by getting angry.

Sept. 14 – 16: This is the time to hide and not speak. Three major aspects are taking place which will mess up your relationship skills. Aren’t you glad I’m preparing you? Venus is in a challenging aspect with Mars. Your needs and wants are clashing with someone else’s. It’s difficult to make a compromise or come to a place of cooperation when this aspect is on. The Sun in Virgo is directly opposite Neptune in Pisces and will spark seeds of confusion, while misinterpreting one another. Do your best to be 100% attentive. Venus in Virgo is in an awkward aspect with Chiron in Aries. This aspect brings up old feelings that emotional needs will not be met. This can provoke anger. There’s a possibility of using a demanding approach to get needs met by using guilt to manipulate another. This is probably an unconscious force taking place. It’s not a nice way to get what you want…
