Visible Planets: Morning: Saturn
Evening: Venus, Mars and Jupiter
Autumn has arrived, and with it comes the poignant beauty and delicate grandeur of seasonal change. Shimmering, golden aspen and crimson oak flutter in the cool, morning breeze. Days are warm and luscious. Maxfield Parish sunsets paint the celestial canvas turquoise and showcase Venus in twilight, low, above the western horizon, while brilliant Jupiter glows high in the southeast as the night’s preeminent evening star. We are enveloped in the gratitude and grace of Indian Summer amidst the magnificent beauty of Colorado. Astrologically, the Sun has entered Libra and will form the conjunction aspect of a New Moon in that sign on September 29th at 2:12 a.m. MDT. It’s time to prepare for the lunar cycle of sharing and pairing, relationship and commitment. Keep your eyes and heart open, the love of your life may be coming to a town near you! Mercury, planet of travel and communication, went retrograde on September 24th. Focus on wrapping up, finishing and returning to what you’ve already started rather than beginning something new. Take it easy, relax and enjoy the seasonal beauty and its abundant blessings. Happy New Moon!


Aries (Mar. 21-Apr.19)
The Libra New Moon shows up with Venus in Scorpio, which illuminates the shadows of relationship. While you may think it’s other people who need to improve or grow up, this lunation mirrors aspects of yourself that may be hidden, undeveloped or unconscious. Fatal attractions are all about you, not them. Investigate!

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
Venus is the mythic goddess of love and beauty, as well as the planetary ruler of both Taurus and Libra. This week, our voluptuous vixen is in seductive Scorpio, enticing you with charismatic charm, power and passion. Face fears and let go of trying to control others. Work on personal self-improvement and dive deeply in to love.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Venus in Scorpio pushes the Twins to examine motivation and desire. Are you living in accordance with your own values, or those which have been instilled by parents, society or peers? It’s time to go deep, feel your heart and pay attention to inner knowing. Carve out some quiet time, get clear and awaken. Discover your personal truth.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)
New Moons are always significant for Moonchildren and this lunation is no less. Taking place in your solar 4th house of personal foundations, maternal nurturing and family heritage, you may actually feel the pull of past experience upon your heart and soul. Be your most authentic self, have fun and embrace life.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22)
Preferences and requirements in relationships and lifestyle choices are big this week and upcoming month. Partnerships take center-stage as you consider just to who and what you’ve committed. Utilize the grace of diplomacy as you let it be known how you feel and what you are thinking. Negotiate with tact and keep anger under lock and key.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22)
By learning self-mastery, self-trust and self-love, we then possess the power and love we have been seeking from others. It’s time to stop looking or yearning for something or someone to fill you up. A fresh lunar cycle says, “It’s totally up to you; take charge!” Mercury retrograde favors a three-week period of self-review. Look deep.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct.22)
Birthday candles flicker as lunar light shines upon the peacemakers of the zodiac, and there’s no better time to make a wish for world peace. While others may consider this concept an illusionary dream or it-will-never-happen scheme, you take the possibility seriously and are willing to work for it. Go ahead, do the job. Don’t give up.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
Vixen Venus has entered your sign, seductively slinking into satin sheets and filling the house with the aromatic fragrance of roses. Enjoy life’s sensuous pleasures and count your blessings as you see the attraction and value of sweetness. Angels flutter as your yearly solar cycle draws to a close. Rest and relax; prepare for the new.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
A lover from the past or a long cherished love may appear magically, out of the blue. You may rediscover or revive a former romance or simply make peace with someone or something you had left unsettled. Whatever the manifestation, know you are being assisted from higher realms and invisible forces. Kiss the girls, live the joy.

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
Plenty of planets in your solar 10th house of achievement and authority encourage fresh starts in career and professional direction. It may be time to consider a new leadership role or step down from an old one. Gravitate towards the people you admire and respect, the ones who have something you want. Birds of a feather flock together.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
We are all one of a kind and yet the same, we are individual and yet inter-connected. This is the Aquarian paradigm, and this week you are asked to live it. Let down the boundaries and defenses, be pure of heart and join your brothers in the truthful, authentic effort to embrace the world in love and compassion. Simply do your best.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)
Sensuous romance combines with spiritual experience and you see what glimmers beyond the proverbial horizon. It’s all about an enlightened perspective, a generous heart and a positive attitude. There are many astral planes upon which to travel and you are truly a galactic warrior. Look for omens and follow the signs.
