It’s the 38th week of the year so in numerology, that breaks down to 2. It’s a week to focus on balance, especially because communication is going to be garbled thanks to a few Mercury and Neptune transits as well as the approaching Mercury retrograde. There’s also a partial eclipse on Saturday (it will only be visible in some parts of Africa, India and Antarctica). This eclipse will help reveal the truth that you’ve been seeking. Two cards jumped out when I was shuffling so as the old saying goes, “If it falls on the floor, it comes in the door.” They are the Three of Pentacles and the Page of Wands. Both of these cards give us deeper insight into the cosmic energy we’re dealing with this week. The Three of Pentacles energy is reflected in the eclipse. It signals that you’re building a firm foundation and that your plans for abundance are coming together. The Page of Wands is a card of action. The Aries ruled Page dives right into whatever new experiences he desires and will try anything at least once. Keep this in mind as we experience the Uranus (which happens to be in retrograde in Aries) and Pluto transits this week because they emphasize freedom, spontaneity and breaking free. This could also represent someone in your life who possesses these qualities.

The card of the day is the Emperor. He is the representation of the stern but wise and loving father. Just like the Emperor, you will need to stay logical and in control today because there are some challenging aspects that will muddle communication and looming conflict. At 2:01 AM PST, Moon trine Neptune will bring dreamy artistic energy to the air and heighten your compassion for all living things. Many of you will be asleep for this transit so expect pleasant dreams. At 8:01 AM PST the Moon makes a challenging square with Mercury, making it difficult to express yourself. Exercise honesty but be careful with your words. The tension could build until 11:05 AM PST when Moon opposite Pluto occurs and brings the possibility for an outburst, like an sudden thunderstorm in the summer. If an outburst does happen, it will be meant to clear the air and will most likely be caused by the inability to express oneself. Things should clear up by afternoon when Moon sextile Sun makes the scene, bringing harmony and happiness with it. Late at night Moon square Uranus will bring you feelings of excitement and an urge to be spontaneous accompanied by the potential for more upheaval. It would be best to go to bed early to avoid any more drama. The number of the day is 6, a number of victory. Any sort of outburst that occurred cleared the air so that you can get unnecessary emotions out of the way and keep working towards what you want without conflict hanging over your head.

Wednesday 9/9/15 King of Swords
Moon enters Taurus 2:02 AM PST
The King of Swords appears today to remind us to remain level headed and pragmatic in all dealings if we want to achieve success. At 12:23 PM PST, Mercury makes a challenging square with Pluto, bringing about quarrelsome attitudes and obsessive thinking. If you want to get the most out of this transit, turn what you find wrong with others inward and see how those qualities are a reflection of yourself. It’s best to not act on any negative feelings at this time because others are being affected by the transit as well and any sort of confrontation is certain to go absolutely nowhere. Instead, wait until Moon sextile Mercury at 9:38 PM PST to get things off your chest. This aspect is favorable for communication and anything you have to say will be heard with an open mind and vice versa. If approached correctly, you will benefit form the lessos available as indicated by the number 8, a number of positive movement toward obtainment through change.
Mantra: I know when to speak and when to remain silent.

If you’re out and about in the early hours of the morning Moon conjunct Venus will bring you good social interactions and you may even end up going home with a new love interest. Moon trine Uranus at 10:20 AM PST will leave you with a restless feeling of excitement. There could be some unexpected surprises so be prepared. Moon conjunct Mars at 12:59 AM PST, will bring more irritable feelings to the day just when you thought you were over what you’ve been struggling with over the past few days.

Friday 9/11/15 5 of Pentacles
Numerology: 1 (0)
Moon Void of Course 6:03 AM PST
Moon enters Virgo 6:56 PM PST
The card of the day is the 5 of Pentacles. The woman on the card has a choice to go into the warm church and seek refuge from the storm but she insists on staying outside in the cold, wallowing in her own self-pity. This is the energy we start the day with when Moon makes an unpleasant square to Saturn at 6:03 AM PST. You may wake up feeling lonely and depressed for a good part of the day. Moon enters Virgo early in the evening which may bring more feelings of harsh criticism and self-doubt. But you’ll bounce back with Moon conjunct Jupiter at 8:45 PM PST. All of a sudden, you’ll receive an energetic boost of confidence and heightened intuition. However, by 11:15 PM PST, Moon opposite Neptune will turn that intuition into confusion as you pick up on signals deep from the subconscious of others. It’s best to spend a quiet evening at home to avoid any conflict. The number of the day is 1(0) a number of new beginnings.
Mantra: I’m not ashamed to ask for help.
Saturday 9/12/15 The Hierophant
New Moon Solar Eclipse 11:41 PM PST
Solar Eclipse visible in parts of Africa, India and Antarctica.
The card of the day is the Hierophant, a card of finding comfort in tradition. Moon trine Pluto will bring intensity to all aspects of your life today, especially ones concerning emotions. You may find yourself having very serious, intimate encounters with people. The ones of a sexual nature are sure to be earthshattering. You may find yourself clinging to traditional ideas such as gender roles, sexuality and religion. The solar eclipse in Virgo will shine a light on these intense feelings and urges and uncover the truth about what you’re after. Because it is such an intense day, make sure that you stay balanced in grounded, the message of the number 2. Without grounding yourself, you may accidentally become obsessed with everything that’s revealed to you without taking into consideration that every story has two sides and every situation has infinite outcomes.

Mantra: True peace is found in the moment.
