Astrological Almanac for Thursday, September 16, 2021
(All times Eastern)
The Sun and Pluto connect today through a flowing trine. For a couple of days before and after today, we are likely to feel the power issues around us and the fundamental urge to address them. This can also bring about strong physical magnetism and urges, so be careful how you use these impulses. The trine is likely to be more gentle than other aspects, but if you have planets at the end of the Earth signs (Virgo, Capricorn, Taurus), it’s hard to escape this one.
Also affecting the mid-t0-late week, and exact after midnight, is Venus’s crashing with Saturn by square. For those with sensitive points around 5-10º of the fixed signs (Scorpio, Aquarius, Taurus, Leo), this will probably bring around a sense of isolation or a clashing with others. We may feel more inclined to keep our distance and lean toward the conservative side now. Saturn is quite strong now while Venus is not, so pragmatism will trump beauty and aesthetic considerations.
The Moon enters Aquarius at 11:23 this morning, inviting us to focus more on the intellectual side of things than the emotional side. In fact, we may tend to rationalize our emotions now, so be careful not to avoid feeling them as well. Luna contacts Mars in Libra, so we might be able to get some things accomplished now, but they are likely to be more in the realm of ideas and planning, though this is also pretty good for diplomacy.
Later, the Moon squares Venus even as she conjoins Saturn, intensifying the Venus-Saturn square mentioned above until at least tomorrow morning.
