Aries Full Moon - September 30, 2012

This particular Harvest Full Moon has very tense aspects that are likely to cause us to feel stressed or, at the very least, frustrated. The plethora of ingresses this week are also adding tension to the mix.  Venus will ingress Virgo on October 3, Jupiter will station retrograde on October 4, Mercury and Saturn will ingress Scorpio on October 5, and Mars will ingress Sagittarius on October 7. Obviously, this week is all about change, isn't it? There are some suggestions about ways to deal with all the energies in Lunar Living's article for the Aries Full Moon.

Virgo New Moon - September 15/16, 2012

September is in full swing now, and the last vestiges of summer are drawing to a close. Of course, for the southern hemisphere, it is the end of winter. Regardless of our location on the Earth, the Sun is moving closer to the equator with the transitional equinox to occur in a few days when the Sun will begin to transit Libra. As this transition is occurring, we will also begin to experience Saturn's energy in a different sign, Jupiter's retrograde in Gemini, Mars moving into Sagittarius, Venus moving into Virgo and Mercury moving into Scorpio. As the article at Lunar Living explains, we can use the clarity of this New Moon's energy help us slide smoothly into the equinox on September 22nd. After that, the multitude of transitional placements in early October could become a bit overwhelming.
