Week of September 16, 2013
This week brings us the bounty of the harvest. Not only do we come to the Autumnal Equinox, but we also witness a big, bold harvest Moon at 26 degrees Pisces. This is a most auspicious time for many cultures across the planet, which allows us to celebrate our humanity in the most abundant manner. The Equinox brings balance and equality as we see equal parts of day light and darkness as the planet prepares to shift gears again and enter into a new realm of light. Saturn and Venus meet together in Scorpio where they emphasize the balance between responsibility and enabling. This concept literally creates rules for engagement, so to speak. On one hand we have the desire to offer help and kindness, while on the other we have a responsibility to act with discretion and reserve. This combination epitomizes the art of diplomacy, which may be our most useful tool right now.
As Jupiter and Mercury merge into a square we can begin to envision the power of communication. Carefully chosen words and well-defined parameters are the key to negotiations and resolution. By the same token, the importance of what is said and agreed upon becomes even more prevalent. Jupiter amplifies whatever situation he is a part of, so expect drama and grandstanding. We may be grateful that dialog becomes the bargaining tool and not force as tempers rise and words fly without caution. Still words are words and, while they can cause harm, they are nowhere near as dangerous as weapons. By week’s end we will enter the sign of Libra. A lofty and powerful cardinal sign, Libra emphasizes equilibrium and mind over material. This is a time to discuss; a time to resolve.
True astrology comes from accuracy. When you know the exact details of your chart, you get the instructions for your own particular journey. These are the instructions. Like an operators manual. Using birth date, place and time you see where the action is in your life. Accurate, predictable, validating, in short, astrology works. I have been working with charts and the planets for years and the timing and action is real and validating beyond belief. Listen each week to “Turning of the Wheel” on Contact Talk Radio at 11:00 AM. The shows are then podcast on iTunes for later in the week. Write to me for a reading firstname.lastname@example.org or visit my website at www.turningofthewheel.com.
