Fall Feng Shui Tips

Fall Feng Shui Tips

Find balance in your life with the changing seasons

Stephanie Dempsey

The fall season beckons us to slow down and enjoy the fruits of our labor. The days are getting shorter and the nights longer, prompting everyone to strike a better balance between their public and private lives. If you feel like one aspect of your life is consuming too much time and attention, this is an opportune time to make some Feng Shui adjustments to your home. Here are a few suggestions that can help you find time for friends and family while keeping busy with work.

Flower power

Nothing says autumn like the burnished colors of chrysanthemums, marigolds and nasturtiums. Display pots of these flowers wherever you tend to feel stressed or overburdened. Glimpsing their russet, gold and orange hues will be like rubbing soothing salve over sunburned skin.

Dim the lights

Change bright light bulbs for ones with lower wattage. It is easier to be active in summer because there is increased sunlight. Now that autumn is here, you need to bring things down a notch. Soft lighting will help you slow down and enjoy simpler pleasures, like a solitary cup of tea in the morning or soothing music in the evening.

Go with the flow

Adding a fountain to your favorite room in the house will help you make an easy transition from work to home. The sound of flowing water can quiet nagging doubts and fears that plague you during working hours.

Streamline your social life

If you feel like your social life is depleting your energy, update your address book. If it’s hopelessly cluttered, invest in an attractive new one. The act of entering people’s contact information into the new address book will make you more aware of the friends you truly treasure, versus the people you merely tolerate.

Get moving

If you’re having a hard time downshifting into autumn, reposition 27 items in your home. Why 27? Nine is considered the number of longevity in Feng Shui, and multiplying it by three, the number of growth, will invite a continuous string of auspicious changes into your life.

Stay focused

Do you have a hard time putting work aside, even after you come home? Hang a shelf bracket in the far left corner of your bedroom, and then place a beautiful vase or sculpture on it. This will help you lift your thoughts to a higher plane.

Picture this

Sometimes a desire to get ahead at work can cause you to neglect the people and things you love most. Displaying a recent photo of your loved ones on the far right corner of your desk can help you to strike a better balance between work and home.

Create boundaries

If you have no choice but to keep a desk in your bedroom, create a barrier between your sleep and work stations. Suspend a flowing curtain so that you can’t see your desk when you’re lying in bed. Alternately, you can shield the desk with some lush plants.

Soften up

Your bathroom represents your ability to nurture yourself. Make this space more inviting with soft lighting, fluffy towels and a tactile rug. Add soaps, candles and lotions that are pleasing to your sense of smell. A radio tuned to a relaxing music station can also transform your bathroom from a utilitarian space to a mini-spa.

Give thanks

The best way to enjoy the fruits of your labor is to pause and acknowledge them. Make a list of 27 things for which you are grateful, and then place this list in a red envelope. Put the envelope under your mattress and keep it there until the Winter Solstice. The energizing power of your list will suffuse you with peace and contentment, allowing you to enjoy autumn’s blessings to the very fullest.

Your Daily Planet Tracker: Sun in Libra, Now Until October 23, 2015

Planet Tracker

Sun in Libra

Now Until October 23, 2015


Libra, the Scales, is the sign of the Autumnal Equinox. It marks the beginning of fall in the Northern Hemisphere, arriving at the moment when the nights become longer than the days. This is not a time of turning away from the world. It is, rather, a period when relationships take on greater importance. Perhaps it is the lengthening night that reminds us of our dependency on one another and puts the focus on partnerships.

Socially sensitive
Ideally, Libra represents the dynamic balance of a healthy couple. This sign includes the principles of fairness, diplomacy and the recognition of others as equals. Librans, therefore, are very socially sensitive. They notice who is getting his or her share and who isn’t. They understand the role of give and take in the creation of harmonious communities.The desire for peace, though, can be so strong that honest communication becomes stifled. It is vital that we remember that moments of challenge and conflict are sometimes necessary for relationships to grow.

Venus-ruled Libra is traditionally associated with a sense of beauty and good taste. This is a period in which we benefit by paying more attention to how we are affected by our environment. It’s a good time for making your home or workplace more attractive. Outer harmony supports inner peace.

Libran battles
Libra has a sense of justice that can lead to non-violent political activism as expressed by Mohandas Gandhi, Lech Walesa, Jimmy Carter, Eleanor Roosevelt or Jesse Jackson. There are, too, more acerbic Librans, ranging from Oscar Wilde, John Lennon and Lenny Bruce to Janeane Garofalo, Eminem and Snoop Dogg.

Famous Libra singer-songwriters are Sting, Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Paul Simon and Will Smith. Many Libra actresses are doing well these days, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jenna Elfman, Mira Sorvino, Neve Campbell, Alicia Silverstone, Joan Cusack and Kate Winslet. Matt Damon is another Libra who is prospering in the movie business. There are even two double Libra movie couples: Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas and Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins.

The world of sports has Librans Serena Williams, Martina Hingis, Mark McGwire and Evander Holyfield. Barbara Walters, Anne Rice, Sarah Ferguson and Luciano Pavarotti are other celebrities born under this sign.

Your Daily Witches Rune for September 28th is The Eye


Today’s Witches Rune

The Eye

Meaning: The eye has always been a powerful symbol for different cultures. Some believe that the soul resides in them, while others think it’s possible to curse a person merely by looking at them. Through our eyes we connect and express emotions and thoughts. Thus, this is one of the most powerful runes in the set, emphasizing the importance of any rune close to it. The Eye symbol is also related to “vision” is all senses, including the physical. This rune can represent our eyes and optic nerves. It can also represent activities such as research, analysis, photography and creative visualization. When it appears, there’s an urge to observe, to explore, to understand deeply what is before you. This rune is usually related to sudden realizations. Not necessarily a ‘shock’ (unless some violent rune is close it, like the Scythe and the Man), but more related to the lifting of veils. Your eyes are suddenly open, and you see things that were unknown to you before. A change of perception and focus in life is to be expected when this rune appears… whatever the situation is, the way you see it will be transformed. The Eye rune also says that now it’s time for you to go after what you want. Your focus is powerful right now, and everything you concentrate on can become successful.
This rune often represents a lonely journey towards a goal… it suggests a calling and a connection to something bigger, a sense of purpose. Your path is clear to you now; you know which way to go, even if you don’t know where exactly it’ll take you. In a spiritual level, This rune can represent a development of one’s psychic skills, or an advancement in one’s spiritual path. As you connect yourself to a deeper source, and learn to trust, you gain wisdom and your eyes see far. A higher power seems to be guiding you in times when the Eye appears. Like the Sun rune, this rune can mean that right now all eyes are on you. But unlike the former symbol, when the Eye appears there’s some discomfort related to such attention. It may be excessive and even unwelcome. In fact, this is one of this rune’s most negative facets: it may show an invasion of privacy, when someone (or even you) pry into another’s life and scrutinize their every move. Beware of flatterers and stalkers. The Eye cautions against obsession and the tendency to spy on other people’s affairs. In a relationship reading, the Eye can symbolize a predestined bond to another person.

Note that this does not promise a happy ending, but simply says that this connection is powerful and will be very important in your life. In fact, because the Eye rune is a solitary one, it is possible that the people in the relationship cannot be together due to difficult circumstances. Still, your bond that person will transform you. In a negative way, this rune can cautions against invading your partner’s personal space or stalking them.

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Sept. 28yj is The Moon

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today

The Moon

The Moon represents those forces which remain largely hidden to us. The light of the moon provides some illumination down a path into the unknown, but not enough to brighten the landscape like The Sun, or cut through the dark shadows from which the unexpected may leap. However, The Moon is not without gifts we can use. She spurs our imagination and creativity. She can be a portal to knowledge and experience beyond the realm of our everyday lives. But Her offerings are not available to the feint of heart. To receive what The Moon offers one must have the courage to follow uncharted paths and the intelligence to find truths hidden in a bewildering setting rife with illusion. For those who can make this journey the reward may be finding the key to making their dreams come true

Additional information about Today’s Rune


ðagaz : day

Phonetic equivalent: d (pronounced as ‘th’, as in ‘this’)


happiness, success, activity, a fulfilling lifestyle, satisfaction


to bring a positive outcome


Sunna, Baldr, Nerthus, Yggdrasil


This rune effectively marks the end of the third aett, leaving only oþila to complete the cycle. As in the previous two aetts, ðagaz concludes the third with light and hope. However, while wunjo represented earthly glories and the sun, heavenly power, the day brings these two realms together, bringing the more abstract light and power of sowulo ‘down to earth’ and applying it to our everyday lives.The shape of the rune itself denotes this kind of interconnection. It is reminiscent of gebo, with its balance of masculine, feminine and the four elements, but ðagaz makes further connections to the celestial and the realm of nature.
Like inguz, it symbolizes harmony with one’s environment. but again takes it a step further, implying a harmonious relationship with the spiritual environment as well. It is a bringing together of all six cardinal points – the four compass directions, the celestial realm above us where the Gods are thought to dwell; and that which is below – all the spirits of the earth and of nature. All of these things are balanced and integrated through ðagaz and brought into our daily lives.


Your Daily Tarot Card for September 28th is The Hanged Man

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card

The Hanged Man

The Hanged Man is the most enigmatic card of the Tarot. Even Tarot giants like Waite, Crowley and Levi had trouble deciphering The Hanged Man’s true meaning. Generally The Hanged Man is thought to represent the value of surrender and selfless acts. The Hanged Man embodies the notion that sometimes to lose is to win. Unlike the aggressive Chariot, The Hanged Man creates his fate through inaction and accepts his fortune passively, without resistance. He does not struggle to control the path his life takes, but rather allows events to sweep him where they will, even if he is called upon to sacrifice himself. He is so at ease with the Fate the Universe chose for him that even hanging upside down from a tree does not ruffle his inner peace.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow…
Your Horoscopes for Tuesday, September 29th



Aries Horoscope

There can be some feeling of regret or guilt about not fulfilling a responsibility, dear Aries, or a past decision. Past errors may resurface. Try not to spend too much time on missed opportunities and aim to correct mistakes, deal with inconsistencies, and move on. This is not the best time to push an idea or present your case, but what comes of the thinking you do now can be significant. The Moon continues to transit your sign until later afternoon, when your attention shifts from mainly emotional concerns to practical ones.



Decision making can be difficult today, dear Taurus, particularly surrounding work and friends. Try to be as productive and helpful as you can today, but if you feel others are pushing your boundaries, take care of yourself as well. Social problems might interfere with, or distract you from, your work. While it’s not an ideal day for solid decision-making or fact-checking, it’s good for letting your imagination take you to new places. The Moon enters your sign later afternoon, pulling up buried emotions and stirring a desire to do what you feel like doing rather than what you’re expected to do.



With sensitive Neptune and Venus in awkward angle to your ruler, Mercury, today, you could be wrestling with your perceptions or second-guessing recent decisions, dear Gemini. Uncertainty may not be the easiest feeling for you to manage, but if you resolve to accept that today is not the time for making final decisions or commitments, you can instead entertain possibilities that you may not consider on more practical days. Focus on little tasks and avoid worrying about where you’re going with them. This way you’ll end up accomplishing a lot more. The Moon’s move into your privacy and soul sector later afternoon helps you to recognize the need to unwind and refresh.



While it can be difficult to make clear decisions today, dear Cancer, you’re in a good position to notice things about yourself, others, and situations in your life that you may not see on other days. Look for creative ways to express yourself rather than the usual or traditional routes, perhaps through poetry, taking in a show, meditation, or the arts. You may not be in agreement or seeing eye to eye with some people in your life now, but it’s a good time to rethink what it is you truly do want. The Moon moves into your social sector later afternoon, and you may be seeking out the company of those who truly allow you to be yourself.



Communications may not go through the way you intend today, dear Leo, but then again, you may not be completely certain of what you want at this time. There could be vague problems with boundaries and particularly with friends, siblings, or classmates. Dwelling on missed opportunities will not do you any good, but taking a quick lesson makes sense. Take note of which situations are eroding your confidence and aim to deal with these going forward. This general state is likely to influence tomorrow as well. The Moon moves into your professional sector later afternoon, and this brings your attention to responsibilities.


Virgo Symbol/Glyph

There can be some wistfulness today, dear Virgo, as you may be longing for something but can’t see a direct route to its attainment. You might also feel that someone is overstepping their bounds today, and if you feel infringed upon, even subtly, take note instead of shaking it off. This may be a signal that you need to draw the line, perhaps not today but going forward. Major purchases or business decisions should probably wait for a clearer time. Find ways to bolster your health and esteem today. The Moon moving into Taurus later afternoon puts it in harmony with your sign for a couple days, and you could find that adding a little adventure into your life, possibly through a new interest or researching a new idea, can improve your mood many times over.


Libra Glyph-Symbol

You may not be getting the feedback you want today, dear Libra. This is a temporary hurdle to jump, and can serve to remind you to look within for happiness. Make yourself proud with the things you choose to do today. Rather than pressing for answers, with Neptune strong and challenging today and tomorrow, be content with the notion that you may not need to know the whole story just yet. If others or your work efforts seem to be draining you of energy, learn to tune out distractions. Watch for a tendency to let things slide. The Moon moving into your solar eighth house later afternoon can suggest that research or throwing yourself into a passion or interest can lead to more emotional satisfaction.


Scorpio Symbol Glyph

Inner restlessness can be triggered today if you are dwelling on a topic that doesn’t seem to have a clear answer, dear Scorpio, or on a past mistake or missed opportunity. While it’s important to take a lesson from the past, if it’s truly interfering with the past in disruptive ways, then try to redirect your imagination to something a little more pleasant or productive. With your communications today, try not to take the easy road, as it can come back to you at a later date. The Moon’s move into your partnership sector later afternoon may serve to pull you out of a tendency to focus on what’s wrong with your life and into a more cooperative mood.


Sagittarius Glyph Symbol

Watch for a tendency to stray from the truth today, dear Sagittarius, as this can happen with you or to you. Sometimes it’s best to stay on the fence than to make a statement you’re not truly ready to make. A friend may be showing an unpleasant side, or something that’s communicated makes you uncomfortable. Misunderstandings are very possible today not only with Mercury retrograde but in mildly difficult aspect with Venus and dreamy Neptune. It’s not the easiest time to focus and concentrate, but it’s a good time to consider some of your more spiritual, imaginative needs and how to fill them.


Capricorn Symbol/Glyph

You may not feel especially prepared today, dear Capricorn, or foggy about certain facts. Some of you could be concerned with a missed opportunity or a past mistake that emerges now. Try not to dwell too much on the past, but keep in mind that taking a lesson now can really push you forward as the Sun and retrograde Mercury move towards an alignment in your career sector, exact tomorrow, illuminating ideas that take into account both the past and the future. There can be some extra sensitivity to what’s perceived as criticism, but once you take time to center yourself, you may decide that you’re ready to move forward with an eye on improving your situation. The Moon’s move into your playful creative sector later afternoon helps lift your spirits.



There can be some uncertainty experienced today, dear Aquarius, but what you’re examining now can lead to important discoveries, particularly in the areas of education and travel, or anything related to those things that help feed your spirit for discovery and adventure. Doubts may be part of your day now, or there could be the discovery of an inconsistency in a plan or idea. Inner reflection can serve you well now, and with the Moon moving into your solar sector of heart and home later afternoon, it may be quite natural to go that route.



With your ruler, Neptune, in awkward angle to Mercury today and the Sun tomorrow, dear Pisces, it may not be easy to get your message across. It’s a good time to think about the past and take a lesson from it. This could be a time of some forgetfulness and mental distraction. If you find yourself dwelling on past mistakes or feeling guilty, find ways to delve deep inside and forgive yourself. Letting go of guilt and replacing it with resolve to be more attentive going forward will do wonders for your mood. Guilt has a way of hanging heavy in your life, weighing you down. The Moon’s move into your communications sector later afternoon can motivate you to write or talk out your feelings.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, September 28th




Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, September 28th



Aries Horoscope

The Moon is in your sign all day, continuing to put the emphasis on your personal needs, emotions, and independence, dear Aries, but today, it may be a little less pressured. There can be some strain if someone in your life is objecting to the time you’re putting into a project or your personal plans. If there’s any truth to this, try to slow down a little or make some adjustments. There is a lot of energy for work and health programs in the coming weeks, even if today it’s more about the world of feelings. You are gathering big ideas and may feel a strong sense of building excitement for upcoming projects.



Excitement is building for creative projects, hobbies, and love relationships for some of you, dear Taurus, with energetic Mars and expansive Jupiter in your creative solar fifth house. As they move towards an alignment in the coming weeks, motivation levels only continue to increase, and you can be filled with ideas and plans. There is promise or a hint of something big to come. Today, a little more privacy, some solitude, and time away from demanding or competitive atmospheres will do you good as the Moon continues to pull your attention to behind the scenes matters.



There remains vibrant, independent energy surrounding you today, dear Gemini, and possibly your social life as well. Even so, there is building motivation and excitement surrounding family and home life these days, and it’s only set to increase in the coming weeks. This is a powerful time for redecorating, reorganizing, rearranging, or even moving for some of you, as well as for spending more quality time with family and/or building a home base that inspires you. Today can involve a small dilemma if your social life is interfering with other areas of life. A balance should be sought now.



There can be a buzz of excitement surrounding you today, dear Cancer, particularly involving career or life direction and goals. Even so, there is a growing sense that you may need to find a better balance between your personal and professional lives. Commitments may be questioned. Matters revolving around learning, connecting, and communicating are stirring their own excitement, and this is only set to build in the coming weeks. Take note of big ideas and plans, play with them, and see where they lead. It’s not as important to know all the details right now – it’s more about possibilities now, so honor the creative process.



The Lunar Eclipse last night has likely stirred a real sense of adventure and of possibilities in you, dear Leo, and this excitement continues today. You can feel hungry for new feelings and experiences, and at the same time feel confident that opportunities are opening for you, although there may be some balancing work that needs doing if you’ve overcommitted. There is also building excitement on business and practical fronts as energetic Mars and expansive Jupiter move through your solar sector of finances, resources, and natural talents. These planets are moving towards alignment, exact in a few weeks, and you’re likely to fill with ideas and plans as they do. A sense that you’re moving towards something big is motivating you now.


Virgo Symbol/Glyph

Courage is building these days, dear Virgo, and you can feel truly excited about new possibilities. This energy will be even stronger after the end of Mercury’s retrograde on October 9th and as Mars and Jupiter move towards an alignment in your sign. This is about courage to be yourself and to express yourself creatively and boldly. Today can stimulate a need to tend to money matters, particularly if there’s been some reshuffling of financial sources or new expenses to deal with. Even as independent as you’ve been feeling, this is also an important time for looking around you for others’ talents, input, or resources that can help further your plans.


Libra Glyph-Symbol

Some of you could be feeling pressure to commit or to put more energy into a relationship, dear Libra, but your need for independence is strong as well now. A compromise should be sought. The Lunar Eclipse that occurred last night is a cosmic push to better understand your relationship needs, and now it’s time to sort out your next step. Nevertheless, you’re still encouraged to look at the past for answers. There is building excitement about matters of the past for some of you and private or secret matters for others, and this is only set to increase in the coming weeks.


Scorpio Symbol Glyph

This can be a day when you feel a little overwhelmed by your commitments, dear Scorpio. Otherwise, there is a sense of building excitement about your social life and future plans. You have good team spirit, but you are also motivated by your peers to improve or up your game. Ideas abound now, and it’s important to let the idea creation process work over the coming weeks, and not worry too much about the details of your plans just yet – these will come later. Right now, let your mind wander a little when you get a chance. Sort out your daily routines and find a better balance of attention between doing and resting.


Sagittarius Glyph Symbol

Warm and complementary energy is with you now, dear Sagittarius, with the Moon bringing excitement to your creative and romantic worlds, but also some building motivation to your more practical or professional concerns. Strong energy for both work and play should continue for some time. While today you may need to straighten out areas of your life where you’ve overcommitted or poured too much of your energy to the detriment of other life departments, there is nevertheless a sense that you’re going somewhere and that big opportunities are emerging. Let your imagination go when it comes to work or life path goals – the details of plans can be filled in later. Right now, it’s about inspiration.


Capricorn Symbol/Glyph

While home and family life capture your attention now, dear Capricorn, you are also experiencing building excitement for new subjects and interests, and this is only set to expand in the coming weeks. It’s important to let ideas grow and play out in your mind now, as energies with you now are more about inspiration than process. The details and refinements to your plans can come later. Today, it’s a good idea to work on finding balance between personal and professional matters, as areas where you may have overcommitted can seem glaring now. Fortunately, you have loads of energy for making changes and improvements.



There continues to be a buzz of excitement in your life after last night’s Lunar Eclipse, dear Aquarius, and many of you are experiencing a learning or communications breakthrough. Even so, if you’ve overcommitted to the point that your daily life is suffering or you don’t seem to have enough time to grab new opportunities emerging, you’re best off dealing with this now. There is also building excitement in your personal or private life these days, and this is only set to increase over the coming weeks. Opportunities to expand your income are possible for some of you. Emotions can be stirred now that demand some sort of action, and you can be feeling more and more passionate about your plans.



If you’ve been putting too much energy into practical and business matters to the detriment of other life departments, dear Pisces, you’ll feel the need to make changes now. Even so, it’s also a time when your emotions are heightened surrounding financial and earning matters. There is a building feeling of excitement when it comes to relationship opportunities and fulfillment through partnerships with you now, and this is only set to increase in the coming weeks. You can feel that you’re growing and improving, and that your relationships are evolving as you do.

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of September 28th

Weekly Love Horoscopes by Maria DeSimone

General Horoscope

You might still be reeling from Sunday’s Lunar Eclipse in Aries. It certainly put a dent in partnership plans for many. Why? Because Aries insists on going it alone, on focusing on developing the self. This self-directed behavior can sometimes come across as selfish to others — especially to one’s partner. And yet, this Lunar Eclipse challenged many of us to remain true to ourselves and to let go of what was no longer serving our personal agenda — even if it was at the expense of one’s relationship. Mercury retrograde in Libra continues to muddle efforts to reach compromise. This week? It’s all about recovery. Read all about it.


Aries Horoscope Mar 21 – Apr 19

While you need to remain true to yourself, this week you might also realize that doing so is at the expense of your partner. Do what you can to find some middle ground during this time of intense personal change. A conversation with your partner on Wednesday might bring up old, unresolved issues that continue to haunt your mate with resentment. Don’t run away from the conversation — run towards it.


Taurus Horoscope Apr 20 – May 20

Take advantage of the Moon touring your sign between Tuesday afternoon, and into Thursday afternoon. During this time, you’ll wear your heart on your sleeve making it much easier for your partner to see your true feelings about any situation. If you’ve been keeping your emotions locked up for some reason, you’re likely to realize that it’s no longer serving you or your relationship.


Gemini Horoscope May 21 – Jun 20

Changes in your social life might cause more confusion in your love life than you ever thought possible. If, for example, you recently ended a friendship, you might discover this week that your sweetheart has no intention of cutting ties with this person just because you did. In this case, you’ll need to examine why you feel threatened or unsupported about his or her decision. An honest conversation is called for.

Cancer Horoscope Jun 21 – Jul 22

Domestic squabbles and uncertainty might bleed into your relationship harmony more than you’d prefer. Unfortunately, it appears to be unavoidable. You and your mate are long overdue for a few conversations that are likely to make both of you uncomfortable. At the same time however, the future of your family harmony might be at stake. Roll up your sleeves and get to work. Even better, consider family or couples counseling to help iron out any stalemate.

Leo Horoscope Jul 23 – Aug 22

Your mind is completely overwhelmed with relationship thoughts and decisions these days. Since September 17, Mercury has been traveling retrograde in your message sector and he’s been in the partnership sign, Libra. As a result, until October 9, you’ll continue to go back and forth about several issues connected to your love life. Don’t expect to reach full clarity until after Mercury turns direct. This Wednesday however, you might have a breakthrough.


Virgo Horoscope Aug 23 – Sep 22

You and your partner might be in need of a serious conversation this week. Whether your finances are intermingled or not, it looks like your mate has put his or her nose into your personal finances over the last couple of weeks. His or her ideas or comments might have left you feeling more insecure or frustrated than you expected. This week, consider approaching your mate to discuss what’s really behind his or her snide remarks. You’ll be glad you did.


Libra Horoscope Sep 23 – Oct 22

With Mercury traveling retrograde in your sign since September 17, it hasn’t been easy to get your points across to your mate with ease. This past Sunday, a Lunar Eclipse in your partnership sector might have added even more tension to an already frustrating situation between the two of you. Do your best to pick up the pieces this week. Most of all remain patient and understanding. A productive conversation is possible. Aim for Wednesday.


Scorpio Horoscope Oct 23 – Nov 21

Words that have been left unsaid to your partner for way to long are likely to be the source of your frustration these days. You want to have these conversations with your partner — finally! The problem is that every time you think about how you want to express yourself, you get stuck. Don’t be so hard on yourself now. Instead, give yourself a pat on the back for at least having a desire to get the dialogue started. Even if it’s messy.


Sagittarius Horoscope Nov 22 – Dec 21

Taking advice from a well-meaning friend this week about your love life might prove to be confusing at best and disastrous at worst. Or, it’s possible that you’ll be the one who tries to provide guidance to your pal, only to realize that you should have kept your mouth shut instead. When it comes to friendship and matters of the heart, do your best to keep things separate. At least until after October 9.


Capricorn Horoscope Dec 22 – Jan 19

The Moon will tour your true love sector between Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, providing a wonderful opportunity to be completely transparent about your feelings with your lover. The best part of this is that he or she will be just as emotionally receptive. As a bonus, you’ll also enjoy more physical pleasures together as you relate. Think pillow talk or a soak in the tub together. Give each other a massage or foot rub. Hug.


Aquarius Horoscope Jan 20 – Feb 18

You and your partner might feel as if you share extremely different viewpoints on a moral or philosophical matter. As you continue to have conversations about this specific topic, do your best to respect each other’s differences and let go of the need to make yourself right. If not, this might only lead to a greater rift in your ability to communicate about things that matter most.


Pisces Horoscope Feb 19 – Mar 20

You’ll need to pay attention to financial matters this week that involve your partner. Whether it’s how you both pool your resources in order to pay down any shared debt, or, if it’s about investment strategies, it might be helpful to involve a third party into the conversation. You and your mate are likely to have a hard time making any decision together without an expert such as your accountant or financial advisor weighing in. Make the call.

Your Weekly Astrology Report for September 28th thru October 4th

Weekly Astrology: September 28 – October 4, 2015

Relationships get rocky

This will feel like a much quieter week, astrologically speaking. For the first few days into the week, you’ll still be recovering from Sunday’s Lunar Eclipse in Aries. Themes about partnership are more likely to come up this week, stemming from that eclipse.

Aries is all about self-development whereas his opposite sign, Libra, is connected to partnership. The battle between “me” and “we” ultimately requires a successful balance in order to achieve happiness on both ends. This week you might take a good hard look at whether or not your relationship needs are helping or hindering your personal development.

Wednesday, September 30: Sun conjunct Mercury Retrograde

On Wednesday, the Sun will be conjunct Mercury, now retrograde in relationship-oriented Libra. This will enhance the mental focus on these matters and might also entail you and your partner rehashing a situation from the past that was never quite resolved. Thankfully, if you’re both willing to take turns speaking and listening, you should reach a happy medium.

27th/28th September 2015: Total Lunar Eclipse and Super Moon in Aries

27th/28th September 2015: Total Lunar Eclipse and Super Moon in Aries


A Cosmic Humdinger

The eclipse occurs in totality at 2:48 a.m. UT on 28th September 2015, in the 5th degree of Aries. This is a particularly powerful eclipse, set to unleash a whirlwind of change. Subjectivity may be rife and opinions abound, blinding us to alternative perspectives equally true. On the other hand truth may bop us over the head in ways not previously experienced, causing the burden of old beliefs to simply drop away. A Super Moon is always highly energised and influential, but its positioning close to the earth mitigates against objectivity and can leave us blinkered by – but blind to – our own limitations. Coinciding with an eclipse, this Moon indicates a time of deep insight when we can perceive with greater clarity just how constrained we are and how unconscious reactivity keeps us confined.

This lunar eclipse highlights the power struggles that can readily occur in the course of everyday life. Relationships may be up in the air at this time, challenging us to greater clarity of communication and more penetrating honesty. Difficult issues and disagreements previously side-stepped become impossible to avoid as the heavens pile on the pressure to deal with the proverbial elephant in the room. Whilst this may augur a stressful time, difficult conversations had now will pay dividends in the long run when greater understanding flourishes from what may at first be a deep divide.

An on-going aspect between Chiron and Uranus reminds us that most people come with wounds that complicate everyday life. Old pain can cloud the air between us, creating a gulf that separates what we intend from how our words and deeds are received. Unwittingly or otherwise, we may dig at each other’s sensitivities, making effective communication especially difficult. Emotions triggered now can be all consuming and powerfully influential, refusing to let us go until we’ve looked at them directly no matter how uncomfortable doing so may be. This eclipse demands searing honesty within an emotional maelstrom and few people are equipped enough to deal with such interpersonal challenges without a few ups and downs!

The trouble is, if two people under such powerful internal influences come up against each other, a monumental battle of wills may ensue. Taking some time out to reflect, step back and calm down can make the difference between deepened conflict which creates irreconcilable differences, and healing space which allows all parties to say their piece, acknowledge the other and find a way to move forward in a state of mutual accord not entrenched division. We may be at risk, now, of rapid-fire responses made in the blink of an eye which, once the eclipse energies have subsided, fail to stand up to scrutiny. Decisions made on the back of emotional reactivity are best avoided no matter how pressing things may seem. Give it a few days, let everyone calm down and then revisit current issues from a calmer perspective.

With Mercury still retrograde in Libra, we can rest assured that a willingness to question our own motivations as much as we question those of others will proffer insight and self-understanding. No matter how compelling it can be to find fault in those with whom we disagree, we, too, are held to account by the karmic forces of creation and change. If we crusade for others to pay their dues we may miss a few payments of our own, having to make them, with interest, further down the line when it’s increasingly inconvenient to do so! Acknowledging the flaws in our own thinking and the mistakes they’ve caused us to make, will release clear and focused energy to support necessary amends and effect healing closure for all concerned.

Both personally and collectively this eclipse will put the cat among the proverbial pigeons. Nothing is as clear cut as it first appears, despite our desire for clarity. It affirms there is no such thing as incontrovertible truth in the midst of such commanding forces of deep, expansive change. No one knows what will come of current evolutionary shifts. It’s a step-by-step process whose outcomes are revealed only as we display the courage to walk into the unknown.

The cosmos reminds us certainty is a luxury no longer at our disposal. The next step of the journey takes us more deeply than ever before into the great mystery of becoming. Whilst it may feel unsettling, there is no need for fear. Sometimes everything must be thrown up in the air to re-pattern the very fabric of our being. Now is just such a time. The more people who can respond to such intensity by reaching out to others, not withdrawing into an armoured shell; by considering those in greater need, not dwelling on their own lack; by supporting those around them to effect change rather than struggling to maintain a stifling status quo; the greater the upwelling of unity, mutuality and support in the collective energy field. This upwelling will then be foundational in the coming months, an underpinning support for all our efforts, individual and otherwise.

There’s nothing to be gained from mincing words: this eclipse is a humdinger, there’s no denying it. But nothing says ‘we’re ready for deep and abiding change’ better than people standing firm for the common good, knowing that it’s sometimes best served by the recalibration of individual lives, to bring each more deeply into alignment with the sacred and eternal One

The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.

Weekly Forecast: September 27 – October 3, 2015

9/30 ~ Mercury (expression) ~conjunct~ Sun (core-Self):

This energy will compel you to express yourself on many levels. Communication will be a focus, just make sure it is reciprocated. You will have access to some powerful energy that can (and probably will) make quite an impression on others (if you need to). This is a good time to travel if possible too. However, if not physically, than mentally and certainly within your own area, you will take in more information per square inch than usual. Pay attention! You may even gain the much deserved recognition from others you have worked so hard for.
