Full Moon Lunar Eclipse
This week, get ready for loads of emotion washing over your world, through your heart, potentially cleansing your eyes so as to see the world anew, with greater clarity. I explain more about that in the September 27 post below.
Don’t be surprised if you are more tired than inspired for this coming week. Our world, and most likely your personal world, has come through some pretty spectacular events in recent weeks and now is the time to reflect upon what has happened. Remember Mercury is still in retrograde until October 9, so gifting yourself some quiet time, restoring activities would be wise celestial advice.
That’s certainly how I feel and here’s why. I admit I am emotionally spent, yet savoring what I just completed in terms of my own family legacy. As I mentioned in last week’s post, I received an award for my Father posthumously (who would have been 88) for his contributions to downhill skiing. At this event, I realized this joyful link: Dad built our lovely home beneath the towering Mt. Olympus in Salt Lake City, and his final plaque of recognition for his life’s accomplishment now sits at Olympic Park near Park City. As we completed the ceremony, under a growing Moon, an energetic courageous group of future Olympians were soaring down steep slides, doing spectacular flips and twists, then landing in a frigid gigantic pool. Many of our most famous, aging skiers watched, spell-bound, in awe of the ever evolving talents of each new generation, applauding them on, as wise elders do.
I’d like to share these words from my acceptance speech honoring Dad:
“Mel Dalebout was the quintessential, eternal optimist, always believing in progress, evolution, invention, improvement. This quote by Eurpides describes one of Mel’s many philosophies: ‘The wisest follow their own direction’. Thank you Dad, for embodying what it means to follow your dream, to tap into the unique resources of creativity and passion that each of us has. We just have to have the courage and faith to follow those instincts to fruition, as you did with your DaleBoot. The last words Dad spoke were these: ‘Let’s stay positive dear.’ That is essence of who Mel Dalebout was. Thank you, Intermountain Ski Hall of Fame members, for this honoring of his wise and kind and creative soul.”
It was one of the best days of my life. Okay, thanks for listening, back to this week’s StarWeather report.
My sidereal colleague Nick Anthony Fiorenza has this to say about the Eclipse cycle:”Eclipses tend to bring about endings and new beginnings. Eclipse lunar cycles are ideal times to set new six-month goals to create personal change in our lives, not necessarily on the solar or lunar eclipse, but based upon the realizations we have throughout the eclipse lunar cycles.
Lunar eclipses tend to be more emotionally palpable in nature, how we feel about things on the inner and how we respond to our life experience. They are about releasing the emotional bonds within ourselves that glue us to involvements that are less than we truly want or deserve. They are also about the emotional and experiential aspects of our relations with others and with the world. Lunar eclipses provide opportunity for an emotional resynchronization.”
And here is a brief synopsis of Full Moon characteristics that hold true to every Full Moon. Thanks again, Nick Anthony Fiorenza ~ lunarplanner ~
“The Full Moon marks the point of coition in the lunar cycle, the climax, the point of excitement, a time of celebration. The day just after the Full Moon is a time for the realization of the theme to emerge, of what the activities of the first half of the lunar cycle, culminating into the enthusiasm of the Full Moon, are really about. Relax and allow this realization to occur. There is no need to force it as it surfaces on its own.”
Please note: I make my posts according to the Lunar cycles, posting on the New, First Quarter, Full and Third Quarter Moons. I seek to support you in working with and within the natural flow of time and energy, which will help your life flow with more ease and grace. Also, I base my interpretations and predictions on the true sidereal astronomical alignments.

Sunday September 27
Full Moon Eclipse: Moon in Pisces opposite the Sun in Virgo: What makes this a Lunar Eclipse is the Moon in Pisces is aligning with the South Lunar Node which holds the keys and clues to your ancient history. And I mean ancient, as this point also is linked to your past life timelines (if that’s something you are willing to consider). The emotional Moon transiting the sign of compassionate Pisces can often trigger memories of grief or loss, as well as an overwhelming love for everything and everyone. Simultaneously, the Sun is making a conjunction with the North Lunar Node, which governs your future Self. The future You is ever-ready to emerge from the endings and completions of the past. For those of you who are able to hold back tears, this alignment in Virgo can bring a sense of reserve as to how you will choose to express your inner emotional downpour. In addition, remember it’s always okay to honor your own boundaries as you leave behind situations that have been a drain for far too long. That’s another gift of today’s life-shifting Lunar Eclipse.
Mon Sept 28
Sun in Virgo opposite Vesta in Pisces: Both of today’s aspects are like day two of yesterday’s intensely transformational Lunar Eclipse. The same forces I wrote about above are still very active today. The Sun’s opposition to Vesta ~ focus, dedication to a cause ~ encourages you to be in a more focused place. Additional clarity and insights are bubbling up from below. Make time for reflection if you want to receive the wise guidance from your depths.
Moon/Uranus conjunction in Pisces: Uranus can trigger sudden events, like accidents or swift intuitive choices. The compassionate, emotional Moon in Pisces aligning with shocking Uranus gives you further permission to let the healing waters of love erupt between you and the world around you.
Tue Sept 29
Mercury retrograde in Virgo inconjunct Neptune in Aquarius: This aspect can be highly creative if you are willing to throw out what you thought was the best paragraph of your book and open yourself to a whole new channel of inspiration. I’m talking to the actual writers and thinkers who read this blog, but also this advice can apply to anyone seeking solutions for a life dilemma.
Wed Sept 30
Mercury Retrograde conjunct Sun in Virgo: Get ready to receive a flash of genius surrounding something you have been trying to design, resolve, write, heal. This aspect always functions as an illumination ~ The Sun ~ of the mind ~ Mercury ~ and is considered to be an aspect of genius if it occurs in a natal birth chart.
Venus reenters Leo: At last, Venus now completes her time in Cancer, finishing up this summer’s Venus retrograde cycle that saw many losses and sheddings. I’ll be writing more and more about how creative Venus is now entering happier Leo and nudging closer and closer to Jupiter this fall. You can see Venus shining with a startling brightness each morning at first light. Make a point of visiting this portal of inspiration in the pre-dawn morning as often as you can in the coming month.
Thu Oct 1
Moon in Taurus opposite Saturn in Scorpio: This monthly aspect might force you to pay attention to money matters as both Taurus and Scorpio rule the financial world. May there be no foolish attempts at another government shutdown!
Mercury retrograde conjunct Juno in Virgo: You will have a key conversation or brainstorming session with an important future client or colleague, your marriage partner, a health consultant or counselor.
Fri Oct 2
Mercury retrograde in Virgo opposite Vesta in Pisces: This alignment is excellent for harnessing the power of a focused mind to overcome any lethargy, sometimes associated with dreamy Pisces, and get on with the plan or making plans.
Moon in Taurus square Jupiter in Leo/Neptune in Aquarius: And this aspect has you considering the financial end of a creative endeavor you might be launching or already immersed within.
Sat Oct 3
Moon in Gemini square Mercury retrograde in Virgo: The Gemini Moon is always intellectually curious and friendly but can also be prone to gossip. A good use of the demanding square to discerning Mercury in Virgo might be to clear the clutter of your desk/desktop/emails. Also give some thought as how you can clear the clutter of unwanted thoughts, unhealthy habits. Some form of meditation will be helpful today.
