Starcodes Sept 15, 2023 Heather Roan Robbins

Like waves stirred up by a passing hurricane, expect swirling energetic storminess this week as Mercury turns direct and the Sun, Uranus, and Pluto form a grand trine in earth signs this week. Blue skies shimmer after a storm and clearer sailing beckons us by the end of the week. Good changes are in the works, but we need to navigate this week with care.

Over this last month snafus, misunderstandings, or odd delays gave some of us great lessons in how to advocate for ourselves. We’ve been in an astrological holding and review pattern but now the planets ask us to turn forward and begin the next chapter. Stuck processes become unstuck, but life can get a little messy in the process. Like navigating a storm, it can help to remember where we’re going and stay focused on a calm place beyond the waves.

Over this next weekend we may need to straighten out misplaced orders, find lost obstacles, or catch up on a delayed body of work. Check all recent plans to see if they still work and adjust where they don’t. Listen to each other in a way that might’ve been hard in the last few weeks and enjoy some sweetening moments between the waves.

The weekend begins under a companionable Libra Moon which can help us navigate any turbulence as Mercury turns direct. It’s a good weekend to just enjoy one another’s company and appreciate the moment. Our emotional boat could start rocking again on Sunday and through early next week as sensitive Venus squares expansive Jupiter while the Moon enters broody Scorpio. We’ll see the detritus left behind after the recent Mercury retrograde cycle, what needs to be fixed, reorganized, or what deadline waits impatiently for us to catch up, and we could be extra emotional. Our trust could be tested and some experience may call us to expand our compassionate heart.

On Tuesday a whiff of confusion or insecurity needs a steady step as the Sun opposes diffusing Neptune while Mars quincunx Jupiter, leaving us willful, but uncertain. But by Wednesday we get a green light, the Moon enters forward-looking Sagittarius, the Sun trines Pluto, and new chapters begin.
