Venus turns direct September 6, 2015 – As the planet of love and values, Venus moves into a direct motion on September 6, 2015, in the fun-social, creative sign of Leo, we find ourselves questioning relationships that began under Venus retrograde from July 25 through Sept 6. Also, we begin to question purchases made, whether large or small, the question is why and how come? Venus retrograde periods are times when we re-assess what—and who—we value. Specifically speaking, now in a direct motion, since Venus rules, beauty and aesthetics, beautification processes (new hairdos, enhancements, purchasing a new wardrobe, cosmetic surgery, and so forth), renovations, re-decorating, and the like are now advised. Social undertakings, or any sort of event planning is good to go. Major financial undertakings, such as selling a home, purchasing, or investments are now advised. Those born under Leo, Libra, Scorpio and Taurus can breathe a sigh of relief.
Saturn Moves into Sagittarius September 17 –
Saturn, the planet of discipline renters the more expansive, independent thinking sign of Sagittarius on September 17, 2015, until December of 2017.
Saturn in Scorpio from 1982- 1984 & October 2012 through Dec 2014 was connected with the eighth house. The eighth house relates to sex, the way we feel about relationships, our partners money, joint finances, taxes and debt, alimony and payments, corporate money, inheritance, wills and legacies, bankruptcy, personal sacrifices and it is the house of change and transformation.
Saturn in Scorpio is secretive and can be quite intense as Scorpio’s rulers are both Mars and Pluto. Giving up control and fear of rejection can be issues we face during this cycle of Saturn along with issues connected with what we share with others. While Saturn was transiting in Scorpio we finished up lessons/situations that began in October of 2012. Now moving back into Sagittarius, we find ourselves less anxious, more open and less involved with secrecy. It’s all about higher learning, education and moving forward into a more positive, Pollyannaish way of looking at life.
Mercury is in retrograde Libra from September 17 thru October 9 –
Mercury rules all types of communication, including listening, speaking, learning, reading, editing, researching, negotiating, selling, and buying. Mercury also rules all formal contracts and agreements, as well as important documents such as book manuscripts or term papers, agreements, deeds, contracts, leases, wills, and so forth.
Mercury doesn’t actually move backward. It moves closer to the earth, therefore disrupting various forms of communication. When a planet retrogrades, astrologically it is in a resting or sleeping state. Therefore, while Mercury slows down, all forms of communication shifts into a sleep-mode. Ideas, thoughts, chat tends to get scrambled, or spins out of control. Not a good time to make major decisions, or to have major surgery unless there is not a choice. Since it is occurring in the sign of Libra, which rules Venus, which governs beauty and partnerships. Plastic Surgery? Nay.. Not at this time. Starting a new business, or forming a new relationship? Going on a dating site? No. Hold off until October 9, if possible. Those born under Virgo, Gemini and Libra are most affected. However wherever Mercury falls into your own chart based on time of birth indicates where you are affected.
