Messages about spiritual astrology

Today the Sun’s connection to Neptune warns us that we may encounter a martyr or become one ourselves. The potential for self-sacrifice is strong and the tendency to take on more than we can manage, prompted by a misguided sense of duty, is rife.

Pluto stations direct on 20th September, having been retrograde since April. Back then I spoke of Pluto’s demand that we ‘relinquish our petty desires in the face of a pressing need for temperance and responsibility, allowing all of life to flourish and be fulfilled’.

Today’s Full Moon occurs at 11:14 a.m. GMT in the 27th degree of Pisces. The Sabian Symbol for this degree is ‘A Harvest Moon’, (nicely appropriate for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere!) and this Moon shines her light upon the harvest we can now reap.

Today Venus teams up with the North Node/Saturn conjunction in Scorpio and, together with the Moon and Uranus, invites us to explore the realm of the shadow through new eyes.

Today we are reminded it is often in the closest and most important relationships that we encounter the deepest pain and therefore the greatest opportunity for healing.

We begin the new week with Saturn now conjunct the North Node, the Sun somewhat cast aside from its cosmic colleagues and Mars being relieved of some of the pressure to which it’s been subject in the past few days.

This energy tends to make your mind work in over-drive. Not that you think too much, you will think and speak faster than usual, making others seem slow to you. However, when you are moving that fast, sometimes you can overlook something important.

This weekend we have the opportunity to learn the blessings of blending in. There exists a chameleon-like feel to the heavens and shape-shifting is in the air.

Today we encounter a waxing Quarter Moon in Sagittarius (5:09 p.m. GMT). In the run up to this we have a Grand Trine in fire above us, firing up our enthusiasm and giving us courage to face the challenges of our day.

Today Venus enters Scorpio where she remains until 7th October (GMT). As she does so the heavens present two possibilities and it is up to us to choose where we plant our flag.

Sarah Varcas

Mars is now coming under pressure from Pluto and Chiron, and will continue to do so for the coming six days. These are powerful energies with both destructive and creative potential depending on how we choose to use them.

This is the energy of action being restricted and the anger that follows. You can either be angry and feel restricted and limited and unable to move ... or you can see this energy as an opportunity to define the right actions to take and strategically plan to take them when the Universe is more supportive.

Sarah Varcas

Issues of power continue to raise their head as the week begins, and the cosmos encourages us to reflect on how we use it in our own lives. Brute force, it reminds us, is not an expression of power but of weakness and fear.

Sarah Varcas

This weekend the heavens speak of patience whilst warning that it may be in short supply. There exists a headstrong and impulsive feel with a passing Cardinal Grand Square on Saturday (from 8 a.m. GMT to just after midnight) 

Sarah Varcas

In the echoes of the New Moon the heavens encourage us to release any ambivalence we’ve been harbouring and embrace the possibility of change rather than finding reasons to avoid it.
