Oct. 11th - 17th, 2021
This week's astrology brings inspiration and growing motivation for getting plans and projects back on track. We feel into these things as the Moon moves from go big or go home Sagittarius, through hard-working Capricorn, visionary Aquarius and into imaginative Pisces.
And when Venus in Sagittarius makes a sexile to Saturn now direct in Aquarius bringing ideas into more solid form and structure is possible.
Developing partnerships and collaborations can also find new footing for ways to build something truly transforming and lasting when the Libra Sun trines Jupiter Retrograde in Aquarius and squares Pluto now direct in Capricorn.
And as Mercury reaches it’s retrograde station degree over the weekend, makes a sextile to Venus and a second opposition to Chiron, final assessments of what began in September can confirm what has been learned and healed, and the best way forward from a new perspective and position.
It’s a good week for refocusing where there has been delay, detours or deep review. And while Mercury and Jupiter slow to make their stations direct early next week stay flexible, keep your options open and wait until then to make any big decisions.
For now let’s look at the day to day journey through this week.
Monday, Oct. 11th the Moon leaves Sagittarius for Capricorn and puts us in the mood to get down to business. Managing responsibilities and getting plans in place for the work you want to accomplish this week will help ensure things actually get done.
Tuesday, Oct. 12th the Moon is in Capricorn all day and makes challenging squares to all the Libra planets and a trine to Uranus Rx in Taurus. This can offer a good day to dig diligently through any ideas or issues with partners or others to find mutually beneficial solutions or pathways for working together towards success. Using your time and words wisely and listening more than you talk will be helpful for making real progress.
Wednesday, Oct. 13th the Moon in Capricorn meets up with Pluto before heading into Aquarius late afternoon while Venus in Sagittarius makes a sextile to Saturn now direct in Aquarius. This is a powerful day for working through tough feelings that may have held you back and getting inspiration for ways to work better within personal and professional relationships so everyone can succeed. Commitments to fair and free expression helps everyone feel heard, valued and victorious.
Thursday, Oct 14th the Moon in Aquarius all day is busy networking with Saturn, Mercury and Mars which allows for easy flow of thoughts and feelings so further progress can be made on ideas or demanding projects already in motion. Use this day to learn more, build on and grow your knowledge, connections and collaborations.
Friday, Oct. 15th the Moon spends the day in Aquarius meeting up with Jupiter Rx in Aquarius to help active it’s trine to the Libra Sun before entering Pisces in the evening. Continue considering all the possibilities and all your options for proceeding before you make a call. If you are waiting on others remember they are likely still also doing the same thing. And when the Moon enters Pisces the fog rolls in to cloud things even more, so take a break for the weekend and wait for clarity to come in next week.
Saturday, Oct. 16th the Moon is in Pisces all day causing some emotional discomfort with an quincunx to Mercury retrograde in Libra while it makes a sextile to Venus in Sagittarius and opposes Chiron in Aries a second time. It’s a good time for compassionate self reflections on the past, how far you’ve come and what’s changed within you that is shifting the way you feel about and relate to others in your life. Self actualization and healing that has happened recently can be truly felt, freeing and inspiring for what is possible for the future of all your relationships. Hope is in the air and when Jupiter shifts direct next week manifesting the new larger vision and goals that have grown from this personal work is also possible.
Sunday, Oct. 17th the Moon in Pisces meets up with Neptune and quincunxes the Sun in Libra as it squares Pluto in Capricorn. This is a lovely day for escaping into whatever feels soothing, beautiful and grounding. Music, art, meditation, a long walk, warm bath or any positive outlet you feel will help you channel your uneasy energy. This will support feeling more empowered rather than powerless or feeling the need to over power others to handle any challenges you may face.
This is a busy week of mental and emotional clarity work. But if we’ve done our due diligence by the end of it we should feel ready to take that next big shot on our vision quest for the future when Mercury and Jupiter shift direct tomorrow, Monday, Oct. 18th!
Have a great week! Nurture the Nature - for your well Being!
Oct. 4th - 10th, 2021
This week the Moon wanes back for another union with the Sun for our Libra New Moon on Wednesday. This new beginning during a Mercury retrograde offers a chance to view things from another’s perspective to discover more honest and authentic ways to relate to and love ourselves and the people in our lives.
The same day the lord of the underworld Pluto in Capricorn stations direct after 5 months of behind the scenes emotional, physical and psychological unearthing work for the purpose of transforming and making major lasting life changes. What can be built from this new awareness of yourself and eliminating what is no longer supporting you can make all the difference in what you are able to manifest in this life.
Sun, Mars and Mercury retrograde all meet this week in Libra also to help drive life and ideas in new directions. This will support refining partnerships, personal motivations and messages into more alignment with your true values, purpose and goals. And what’s being proven is that maintaining a healthy mindset is key for ensuring we benefit in positive ways from the law of attraction.
Venus, ruler of Libra, completes it’s passage through Scorpio and enters higher minded and spirited Sagittarius. As she comes out of the shadows and up from the depths of the emotional quest for truth, trust and transforming growth she has renewed hope for what’s possible. And belief, faith and dedication to working in more harmony with others will be what helps make it happen. This is an inspiring place we can all strive for to achieve our hopes, wishes and dreams for the future.
And finally task master Saturn in Aquarius will station direct after his 4 month behind the scenes assessment of the structures and programming that guides our work and purpose in the world. We will now have the opportunity to take what has been learned during this time to level up the frequency from which we operate and build a new framework for success.
It’s a powerful and pivotal week that is ripe with chances to make different choices for finally making real change in our lives and relationships.
Let’s walk through the day to day for more insight on how to navigate this week.
Monday, Oct. 4th the Moon in Virgo works through conversations with each of the retrograde outer planets today. These talks can be constructive and at times confusing. Take time to consider your words and have patience with others so they can do the same. Everyone is still sifting through all their thoughts, feelings and possible paths forward in their own ways. And sticking to practical minor tasks and to dos today will help you feel productive and at least like you’re working towards something.
Tuesday, Oct. 5th we rise with the Moon now in Libra and preparing to greet the Sun for our New Moon. But first Luna makes trines with the North Node in Gemini and Saturn Rx in Aquarius. Flashes of insight can support shifting of perspectives and reveal positive adjustments that can be made to improve life’s journey forward. And when the Moon opposes Chiron it can feel like forgiveness is the best way to lighten your load.
Wednesday, Oct. 6th the Libra New Moon arrives. This is a significant day for a powerful new beginning in our approach to relationships and how we choose to collaborate, connect, commune and co-exist with others. Pluto also stations direct today. This will begin the process of being able to build on a new sense of personal power and knowing that can truly transform your life and the way you live it.

Thursday, Oct. 7th the Moon completes it’s passage through Libra with a square to Pluto while the Sun conjuncts Mars. It’s time to let go of what can’t be changed or controlled and start driving life in the directions of where middle ground, peace and harmony can be created in order to attract more joy and success and less stress and struggle. Later in the evening the Moon enters Scorpio just after Venus leaves Scorpio for Sagittarius. Energies around repairing and improving partnership is more hopeful and a need to deepen our connections in real ways opens up.
Friday, Oct. 8th as the Moon moves through Scorpio today it opposes Uranus, trines Neptune, squares Jupiter and sextiles Pluto. The more you can relax, trust your own feelings and go with the flow the better this day will go. And being kind, patience and compassion with others will ensure positive resolutions to any problems that arise. Look toward the weekend for ways to smooth things over and have some fun.
Saturday, Oct. 9th the Moon enters jovial Sagittarius this morning and meets up with the South Node and Venus. Today’s vibes are great for socializing, reuniting with friends you haven’t seen in a long time or planning a hot date with your favorite love. Mercury retrograde conjuncts the Sun and Mars as well, making for fun reflections on past good times or brainstorming about hopes and possibilities for the future. Enjoy!
Sunday, Oct. 10th the Sagittarius Moon has an active day with sextiles to Mercury, Mars and the Sun in Libra and a square to Neptune in Pisces. Whatever the nature of your feelings and vibes they will feel bigger today. Seize the day and enjoy if they are high and be open to outside help or support if they are low. Ask and you shall receive through the generosity of Sagittarius vibes. And by evening time Saturn stations direct which is an exciting shift of energies for getting back on track with projects and plans for the future.
So as you move through the dark new moon this week and wane toward realizing more of who you are and what you truly want out of this crazy life, start setting your sites on how you can manifest it because the universe wants it for you too and is always here to help whether you believe it or not.
Have a great week everyone. Nurture the Nature - for your well Being!
Sept. 27th - Oct. 3rd, 2021
This week the communications planet Mercury, now officially retrograde in Libra, backs up to a second square with Pluto retrograde in Capricorn and trine to Jupiter retrograde in Aquarius. Second thoughts can bring second chances.
At the same time Venus in Scorpio, hosting the Libra energies, will move forward through a trine to Neptune retrograde in Pisces, square to Jupiter Retrograde and sextile with Pluto Retrograde. Going deep provides powerful discoveries for personal healing, growth and evolution within and without.
And all this together points to themes of relationship dynamics and how we dialogue and operate within them up. It's time to assess how much others influence the way we live our lives and how much comes from our own personal programming, desires, needs, thoughts and feelings. And most importantly where the two meet and what can be healed and transformed to create better balance in life and love.
Air and Water are strong elements in play now and these two do not share compatibility. So choices and choice of words really matter. Take caution and care in your selections and remember honesty and compassion are the best tools for support. Libra season also indicates more than usual how things can really go either way, so stay flexible, open to compromise and prepared for things to change at a moments notice.
Let’s walk through the day to day for more insight on how to navigate this week.
Monday, Sept. 27th the Moon in Gemini is active as it completes it’s phase here. Reporting to Mercury Retrograde in Libra and moving through conversations with each of the outer planets things can feel out of sorts and confusing. Grounding, patience, and remembering that ‘this too shall pass’ will help avoid getting caught up in a tornado of thoughts and feelings that throw you for a loop.
Tuesday, Sept. 28th the Moon returns home to Cancer which can feel good and bad. Moving in to square the Libra Sun and Mars makes it tough to balance self-care and meeting the needs of others. Let your intuition to take care of your own needs first win and save yourself from engaging in a way that can create more stress than harmony.
Wednesday, Sept. 29th the Cancer Moon moves into supportive trines to our planets in water, Venus & Neptune. This brings emotions from the depths to the surface. Don’t be afraid to escape into activities that are loving, kind and comforting. Venus in Scorpio trines Neptune retrograde in Pisces today a well, so meditation, art, music or even just a warm bath can be wonderful options for soothing any present pain. Or you can lean into the Libra energies and schedule an appointment with a trusted therapist or consultant for support.
Thursday, Sept. 30th the Cancer Moon opposes Pluto retrograde in Capricorn while Venus in Scorpio squares Jupiter retrograde in Aquarius. Today is a day where the truth and surrender can really help set you free. Let go of the need to control all the things and see what happens. You may just realize the positive results that come from doing less instead of more.
Friday, Oct. 1st the Moon enters Leo and as much as it can lighten things up and help the energy move through, it can also fire things up too and cause more drama than dancing as it squares and opposes our planets in fixed signs Taurus, Aquarius and Scorpio. And with all that plus Mercury retrograde in Libra squaring Pluto retrograde in Capricorn today the later is really pulling focus. The good news is that if the work is put into letting go of what just isn’t working or has held you back for far too long, making change and honing happier times are more possible.
Saturday, Oct. 2nd the Moon in Leo makes a nice sextile with the Mercury retrograde and opposes Jupiter retrograde in Aquarius while Venus in Scorpio will sextile Pluto retrograde in Capricorn. Honest expression of both thoughts and feelings are easier and any misunderstandings or accidental arguments from this week or beyond can begin to be repaired or resolved fairly and lovingly. The healing powers of love really shine today.
Sunday, Oct. 3rd the Moon heads into Virgo and will square the Nodes in Gemini and Sagittarius, while Mercury retrograde in Libra trines Jupiter Retrograde in Aquarius. Positive growth can come through reflecting on and appreciating the instilled beliefs and programming that have dictated our approach to life and relationships as powerful lessons offered by life. And with this new perspective and clarity an opening for change, progress, freedom, reward and blessings is created.
Take this week to really reflect and rethink for restoring and renegotiating relationships. Have a great week! Nurture the Nature - for your well Being!
Sept. 20th - 26th, 2021
This is a big week of Astro energy beginning with the Pisces Full Moon and ending with Mercury shifting retrograde in Libra. And in between the Sun enters Libra for our Fall Equinox and the start of a new season.
And the largest theme that runs through this week and into this new season is CHOICE. Here is the breakdown for the week to explain why.
Monday, Sept. 20th we have the Pisces Full Moon conjunct ruler Neptune and supported by co-ruler Jupiter Rx in Aquarius trine Mercury in Libra. This calls for deep inner reflections and looking in the mirror to heal and discern the best way forward for ourselves while also having compassion and understanding for others doing the same. You can read the full Lunar Nurturing Astrology on that here.
Tuesday Sept. 21st the Moon now in Aries will oppose Mars in Libra and conjunct Chiron Rx which can cause the questioning of past decisions because of our present struggles or pain. Honesty and open conversations can help gain needed clarity for healing and moving through from lessons learned toward new directions.
Wednesday Sept. 22nd is a big day! The Sun enters Libra for Fall Equinox while the Aries Moon meets up with Eris, Goddess of discord, opposes Mercury in Libra as they all square Pluto Rx in Capricorn. We are now moving fully into Libra energy and being called to consider our life choices more and more, and the others we picked to join us on our path. If things aren’t going well, adjustments and assessments are necessary. And change is scary and endings hurt, however, it’s not wise to make decisions about either from a place of fear. So if possible wait and keep considering options until late October at least.
Thursday Sept. 23rd the Moon moves into stable Taurus early morning and plods through a square with Saturn while Venus in Scorpio will oppose Uranus Rx in Taurus. Feelings can be fixed on the fears of the unpredictable future causing trust issues and struggles in choosing a path forward. Go slow and with the flow as much as possible to avoid creating more stress. Take some time in solitude or meditation to help work through your own feelings first before having words with others.
Friday, Sept. 24th the Taurus Moon meets up with Uranus and opposes Venus so you may suddenly feel pushed to a breaking point. Do your best to resist blowing up, communicate honestly what isn’t working for you, then retreat again to a safe place to save yourself and wait until tensions pass. The weekend will bring a chance to better negotiate.
Saturday,Sept. 25th the Taurus Moon trines Pluto before entering Gemini, while Mars in Libra trines Saturn Rx in Aquarius. This shift of energy can bring some calm to emotions and an opportunity for more practical, detached reasoning. Keep the focus on your higher purpose, ultimate goal and what’s most important as you attempt to begin resolution talks, and mutually respectful decisions can be made and better paths forged.
Sunday, Sept 26th the Gemini Moon creates a Grand Air trine with Mars in Libra and Saturn Rx in Aquarius in the morning before Mercury shifts retrograde in the evening. A higher tolerance and acceptance of matters as they are and finding places to compromise as problems are worked through is possible, and this will be the continued work while Mercury is retrograde until Oct. 18th. Listening, learning and assessing within before you respond will help you make the right decisions at the right time.
Take care and have a great week! Nurture the Nature - for your well Being!
