Astrological Almanac for Wednesday, September 22, 2021

(All times Eastern) Today the Mercury-Pluto square is exact, likely instigating some passive-aggressive behavior as well as some wily speech-craft as well as mental intensity. Venus’s opposition to Uranus affects the day as well, and into tomorrow. The social scene may be more exciting (and excitable) than usual, and we may engage in, or witness, displays of unconventional behavior, and even relational or artistic rebellion. While these two aspects are taking place in different degrees & signs, they both argue for some agitation, and if anyone has points affected by both, it’s likely to be a few “interesting” days.

Astrological Almanac for Tuesday, September 21, 2021

(All times Eastern) The Moon faces off with Mars at dawn today, making the morning routine somewhat harried and frustrating. We may be pushing too hard now and letting others get to us in unhealthy ways. Try not to engage if they’re pissing you off so that you don’t blow up and regret it later. By noon, things calm down a bit as Luna turns to Saturn to cool things down a bit and refocus. While the Moon is quiet after that, tomorrow has two planetary aspects that will fill that void. Mercury squares Pluto, bringing intense thoughts and possible Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Monday, September 20, 2021

(All times Eastern) The Mercury-Jupiter trine brings a sense of logic and purpose to the day, even as the Moon opposes the Sun from Pisces, pushing toward non-logic and dreams. You may feel the push-pull. Those with sensitive points in late Mutable signs (Pisces & Virgo especially) are likely to feel the slightly uncomfortable, fantasy-dreamy effects more strongly, while those with points in late Air signs (Libra and Aquarius especially) will feel the flowing logic. For them, it’s a good day for learning, teaching, studying, and doing philosophy. At 11:12 pm, Luna leaps into Aries, emerging from the watery depths Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Sunday, September 19, 2021

(All times Eastern) The Moon flows with Venus in water signs this morning, encouraging ease and enjoyment, but also running the potential for jealousy and clingy-ness. So enjoy the first part of the day, but try not to be too attached to things and people. The afternoon has us wanting to experiment a bit with our individuality. Mercury trines Jupiter tomorrow, and the aspect is already in range. It’s a few good days for judgment in general and for study and learning. A philosopher’s dream. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon

Astrological Almanac for Saturday, September 18, 2021

(All times Eastern) The Moon finishes her sojourn through Aquarius today, making no more aspects after her conjunction to Jupiter this morning. This should allow for a generally good, social day with no major obstacles. At 4:22 pm, Luna dives into Pisces, bringing on all the feels. We may be extra sensitive tonight and tomorrow, and feel a bit more exposed. It’s a good night for relaxation and some mild fantasy. Take the time to recharge. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon
