Our New SolLunar Cycle takes place in sidereal Virgo opposite Jupiter in Pisces, launching an expansive new phase bringing positive, confident energy to our endeavors with a sense of improvement in one’s current situation. But Jupiter also agitates situations which means this transit doesn’t always lead to positive outcomes. There can be massive water emergencies along with other challenges. Other key events during this four-week period include three planets completing their retrogrades: Mercury on October 2, Pluto on October 8 and Saturn on October 22. And the always inspiring Sun/Venus conjunction in Libra occurs on October 22 in which Venus leaves the last ninth-month phase of being the Morning Star and becomes the Evening Star once again. May you enjoy harvesting the abundance of this year and nurture all you hold dear.

This New SolLunar Cycle aligned in early astronomical Leo is squaring off exactly with Mars in Taurus, signaling this will be a fiery, passionate, action-oriented Cycle. Squares often manifest as inner and outer tensions and provide impetus and pressure to take action or make decisions. Since Mars is all about acting on our inner truth, the link to Leo’s desires can make the upcoming four weeks a highly motivational portal to launch a new creative phase of your life. Also happening during this time, Mercury in sidereal Virgo turns retrograde on September 9 through October 2, promising to bring organizational and productive energy. We cross the sacred portal of Autumnal Equinox on September 22 7:03 pm MT.
Welcome to our New SolLunar Cycle aligned astronomically in sidereal Cancer and conjunct the powerful dwarf planet of Ceres. The sign of Cancer represents our family relations and ancestor/lineage issues. Ceres helps guide us toward knowing what is nourishing to our being on every level. There is a positive trine of generous, optimistic Jupiter to this New Moon which bodes well for good vibes and wonderful opportunities.There are other fierce forces coming to the fore in the next four weeks such as fiery the Mars/Uranus/North Node conjunction in Aries at the end of July. Sacred Lammas occurs on August 1, marking the halfway solar point between Summer Solstice and Autumnal Equinox. And when Uranus turns retrograde on August 24, it is always a wild and crazy time…
