It’s the 39th week of the year and the card of the week is the Princess (Page) of Cups. The Page of Cups is all about learning and understanding your emotions. And there is a lot going on this week in the stars that could leave you feeling unstable. Mercury Retrograde will be intensified all week, with the strongest day being Wednesday when Mercury stations direct. There are many messages of love coming your way this week. Where ever your experiences fall on the spectrum of emotions, know that all of this is happening to help you develop your ability to love and be loved. Even in our most trying moments, if we look at the love and our lives and exercise gratitude for what we have instead of focusing on what we’ve lost, we will be uplifted in times of sorrow. In numerology, the number for the week, 39 adds up to 3+9=1+2=3. 3 is the number of the trinity: 2 come together to become one. There is a lot of relationship energy this week, reminding us of the power of working together, coming together, and loving together.
Mantra: I choose to cultivate an attitude of gratitude.

Sunday 9/18/16 The Tower
Moon Void of Course
Moon Enters Taurus 9:58 PM PST
Mercury will station direct on Wednesday so if you feel pressure building, it’s because Mercury’s orbit’s appears to be slowing down from the viewpoint of earth. When I pull the Tower for myself, the results are always delayed by a few days but whatever the case, whatever has been building is about to pop. When the Tower appears, prepare for earth shattering news and events. If your castle is built on sand, you’ll know within the next few days. But because the end of Mercury Retrograde brings the opportunity to get rid of all your spiritual junk, the Tower will help you break down what needs to go out of your life into little pieces you can carry to the curbside. The Tower is ruled by the revolutionary planet, Uranus, and there is a lot of Uranus energy in the air today. Venus opposition Uranus at 1:06 AM PST could bring disruptive energy to relationships. These new experiences could be a sudden love confession or a sudden breakup. Whatever the case, the truth has the potential to reveal itself. If you’re asleep during this transit, these themes may appear in your dreams. Moon conjunct Uranus at 11:32 AM PST may find you feeling like you just want to break out and break free but be careful of acting on impulse. Moon opposition Venus at 12:30 PM PST may bring obsessive thoughts, especially about people you love. Be careful not to indulge therapeutic shopping and comfort foods. Moon trine Mars at 1:10 PM PST will bring the confidence that you need to face any curve balls that come out of left field. The Moon is void of course in Aries until 9:58 PM PST. Let things happen as they should and don’t try to change anything. The Tower card often appears when an event is unavoidable. But when the Moon enters Taurus things will chill out for the rest of the night and peace will settle in. The number of the day is 9, a number of near completion.
Mantra: When the sun goes down, know there’s always a tomorrow.
Monday 9/19/16 7 of Swords
Moon in Taurus
The 7 of Swords is a card of deception. Liars and thieves always think that they can get away with their selfish ways forever but eventually, it will catch up with them. Venus sextile Mars at 4:53 AM PST brings the opportunity to form relationships. Everyone and everything will appear more attractive as the mythological lovers come together in this positive transit. But be careful of charmers, they may not be what they seem after the effects of the transit fade away. Moon sextile Neptune at 2:25 PM PST will help you follow your intuition. Listen to it. Moon trine Pluto at 10:11 PM PST could bring intense emotions that could be draining so it may be best to turn in early and get a good night’s rest. But if you stay up later, Moon trine Mercury at 10:32 PM PST will bring enriching, expansive conversation. The Moon is Taurus, the sign of love and beauty. Love is all around but remember that love and trust are things to be earned. The number of the day is 3, a number of things coming together.
Mantra: Your heart is a gift; don’t let it be stolen.
Tuesday 9/20/16 Judgement
Moon in Taurus
Moon Void of Course 8:32 PM PST
Moon enters Gemini 10:53 PM PST
It’s time to make a decision with the appearance of the Justice card. Mercury is about to station direct tomorrow so if there’s something or someone you need to remove from your life, the time to do it is today. However, if you’re on the fence about something, the best decision would probably be to wait it out until Mercury is direct. Whatever the case, the choice is yours. Mercury trine Pluto at 6:41 PM PST will give you the chance to look within and really get to the heart of issues at hand. Moon trine Sun at 8:32 PM PST will create a peaceful environment for this period of evaluation. The Moon is in Taurus for most of the day, allowing you to become conscious of the love and beauty in the world even if Mercury preparing to station direct leaves things feeling chaotic. The Moon will go void of course at 8:32 PM PST until it enters the dualistic sign of Gemini at 10:34 PM PST. The number of the day is 4, a number of foundations. If anything destructive happened over the past few days and you’re picking up the pieces, look at the foundation you have left and begin to rebuild.
Mantra: I choose what’s best for the greater good.
Wednesday 9/21/16 Fool
Moon in Gemini
Mercury Stations direct 10:31 PM PST
Mercury stations direct today so it’s fitting that the Fool appears. This Mercury Retrograde was a strange bird. It broke a lot of rules and even though things got a little wonky (for me, I had some problems with timing and getting to physical destinations towards the end of it) it brought some unexpected surprises and blessings. We experienced 2 eclipses and a 999 day of manifestation. Last week’s card was the World, a card of endings becoming beginnings. It reminded us that this Mercury Retrograde was a turning point for many of us, and now we have opportunity for big opportunities and new beginnings. Like the Fool, we are asked to jump right into whatever has been offered without fear or hesitation. Moon trine Jupiter at 3:08 AM PST will bring positive energy to the early morning. Moon square Neptune at 3:32 PM PST may bring some confusion as Mercury gets closer to stationing direct so don’t try to find your way through the fog. Simply just be. If you are asleep during these transits, they may appear in your dreams. Moon opposition Saturn at 5:13 PM PST could leave you feeling depressed and pessimistic. Know that a lot is going on in the cosmos right now and do your best to remain in the moment throughout the day. Mercury stations direct at 10:31 PM PST so today could be full of obstacles and surprises. Do as little as possible and use the down time to go within. Moon square Mercury at 11:38 PM PST could bring garbled communication so if you have something that you need to say, save it for a more cosmically stable day. The Moon is in the Mercury ruled sign of Gemini so your mind may feel like it’s racing at a million times a minute. Slow down, just like the planet Mercury is doing right now, stop, and simply let things come to pass as they may. The number of the day is 3, a number of things coming together.
Mantra: There’s always a pause before sunrise.
Thursday 9/22/16 3 of Wands
Moon in Gemini
Fall Equinox (Mabon)
The 3 of Wands appears when it’s time to sit back and watch things fall into place. You’ve put the work in now. Now know that although you can’t see it yet, the Universe is working in your favor. The Sun enters the fair and balanced sign of Libra today at 7:22 PM PST where he will stay until 10/22/16. And how fitting that the Sun enters Libra while the Moon is Gemini because the lengths of day and night are equal today. Mercury may still be hitting us with some intense energy but the balance that surrounds us cosmically will allow us to tap in and shield ourselves from the intensity. Moon sextile Uranus at 2:11 PM PST will energize us and inspire us to try new things. Moon opposition Mars at 8:53 PM PST could leave you feeling unnecessarily assertive. Reign in those feelings and do something physical to exert that energy. The Moon is in Gemini, calling for us to find balance. The number of the day is 4, a number of stability. Have a blessed Mabon!
Mantra: The days are getting shorter, the night colder, the seasons are changing and so am I.
Friday 9/23/16 Prince (Knight) of Cups
Moon Void of course 12:57 AM PST
Moon Enters Cancer 1:33 AM PST
Last Quarter in Cancer
The card of the day is the Prince (Knight) of Cups. The Prince of Cups is a lover, not a fighter. He calls you to take your time and put love into everything you do today. Moon trine Venus at 12:57AM PST will allow you to see the love and beauty around you. If you are asleep during this transit, these themes may appear in your dreams. Mercury trine Pluto at 1:36 AM PST will bring a much needed look inside your thoughts and feelings as you continue to process the events of Mercury Retrograde. Moon square Sun at 2:56 AM PST bring the challenges that come with the last quarter. Everything is cooling down now and if you didn’t manifest what you wanted during this lunar cycle, it’s time to plan your intentions for New Moon. Moon square Jupiter at 6:48 AM PST could bring some egotistical feelings. Remember, your opinions and actions do not make you better than anyone else. But for the most part, this is a favorable transit. Venus enters Scorpio at 7:51 AM PST where she will stay until 10/18/16. During this time, there could be overwhelming encounters in love and relationships. While Venus is in Scorpio, there’s a tendency to demand all or nothing in relationships. People tend to be 100% devoted and yet at the same time, obsessive and demanding. Love and relationships become an anomaly; drawing you in with her intense energy, even when it stings. People could become more adventurous in bed and BDSM isn’t out of the question (if you go there, BE SAFE!). Moon trine Neptune at 7:06 PM PST will bring compassion for others and you’ll let the love shine through. You may also notice a boost in your psychic senses. The Moon is in the sensitive, caring sign of Cancer today, reminding love rules and conquers all. The number of the day is 5, a number of overcoming obstacles.
Mantra: Love lights the way.
Saturday 9/24/16 10 of Swords
Moon in Cancer
Moon Void of Course 6:42 PM PST
The 10 of Swords is a card of finality. What’s done is done and let what has died be laid to rest. If you find yourself upset about something you can’t change, remember that the worst is over and you’ve been given a chance to set yourself free. Moon opposition Pluto at 3:42 AM PST may tempt you to remain stuck in the past. But the past is only a memory. Moon sextile Mercury at 4:15 AM PST will give you the ability to communicate and constructively deal with these frustrating emotions. If you are asleep during these transits, these themes may appear in your dreams. The inclination to hold yourself back continues with Moon square Uranus at 6:42 PM PST. Honor who you are by recognizing your strengths instead of your weaknesses. The Moon is in the emotional sign of Cancer until it goes void of course at 6:42 PM PST. When the Moon is in Cancer, you may feel a little moody but remember, just like the Moon, what is empty will always become full again. The number of the day is 6, reminding you that you can do anything you set your mind to.
Mantra: Strength comes in the darkest moments.
