Starcodes Sept, 28, 2023 Heather Roan Robbins

This could be an action-packed week filled with highs and lows. We might feel like we’re sailing a boat on a windy sea, we’ll make progress if we catch the right wind but if we get caught crosswise, we’ll skim the rocks.

Friday begins with one of the wilder full Moons of the year, highlighting tension between an energized, impulsive, outspoken, rebellious Aries full Moon and the relationship-oriented Libra Sun who just wants us to make everybody happy and the world a peaceful place. To add an exciting spark to this, romantic and aesthetic Venus in Leo also squares change-inducing Uranus. We want a breath of fresh air, something completely different; we may not look for trouble but could stir it up anyway. Let’s see how we can support tactful directness and loving independence, two integrated examples of Libra + Aries, and cheer each other on.

On Saturday and Sunday, the energy evens out a bit but we’re still rambunctiously curious as mental Mercury trines Uranus; we could really use some fresh input, start a new conversation, explore something we haven’t seen before. The Moon enters more even-keeled if stubborn Taurus on Saturday evening through Monday night and helps us stabilize this curiosity to stay on target.

Just know that we may not be seeing the whole picture clearly throughout this week, our perceptions are strong in the sub-ether, but foggy in the practical world, as Mercury opposes dreamy, confusing Neptune on Monday morning, then trines Pluto in the evening. The week starts in a dreamlike state, though decisions will still press on us.

These Mercury aspects to the outer planets help us tap into our imagination and dip into our intuition. Our psyches may feel a little leaky, we can pick up on other people’s thoughts or feelings and it will be a little tricky to tell what’s our and what’s theirs. We could get lost in our projections and have trouble seeing what’s right here unless we choose to stay present.

These aspects can also help us do some deep psychological work or conceptual analysis, help us share our deepest thoughts and feelings or get lost in a conspiracy theory. Check emotional motivation if when the mind runs in strange corners. Lead with the heart and intuition, let the imagination realm in a safe and productive place, and ask practical questions…
