This Week in Astrology

“In atomic physics, we can never speak about nature without at the same time, speaking about ourselves.” Fritjof Capra

The Boston astrologer and author, Isabel Hickey, referred to times in astrology when the cast of characters in  your life can change as “when the train pulls into the station, some people get on and some people get off.” This week is such a time with the Sun in Virgo squaring the Lunar Nodes at 6 degrees of Sagittarius and Gemini. It opens a doorway  for new people to come into your life and others to assume more distance. With the Nodes involved it indicates there may be karmic connections involved with the relationships. of people both coming and going.

It’s is a crossroad of sorts too indicating the importance of using discretion in the area of relationships.

On Monday Mercury changes signs – moving into the relationship sign of Libra. Mercury will have a long stay in Libra this year – for almost two months due to the Mercury retrograde period which starts on 27th of September and runs through October 18. This period provides good timing to review partnerships of all kinds. It is a time also when important relationships can come into your life.

Mars continues to travel in opposition to Neptune – gathering strength as it moves up to an exact opposition on Thursday. Mars governs power and Neptune governs fog. Under this influence there can be more confusion, illusion  and things can fall apart more easily than anticipated. It’s a good time to strengthen the immune system which can be more vulnerable.

It bodes well all week to stay grounded and keep pragmatism in the picture.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”An expressionist painter making a futuristic drawing.”
