With the moon hedged in between Chiron and Neptune, the goal here is to not become too disillusioned by present circumstances to the determent of our own health and wellbeing. Since we are at a major shifting point in relationship with the economy.
In financial terms, this means exchanges are taking place in ways that can either take us to new soaring heights or ones that could lead to inevitable failures. Choosing now between investments that are critical for future generations to come, or going down the same path we just came off with a fiat currency? Which may start out strong but later pay the price in for a form of security that is ultimately useless.
The question becomes, do we venture on to new untouched roads less likely headed for disaster as long as we keep up with the necessary upgrades and security measures ourselves, or do we say “F#$& it!, I couldn’t be arsed thinking for myself, I will just let someone else do it for me.”
The choice is ultimately ours. The moon in Sidereal Aquarius is telling us the future is just as important as the present, and the collective is more powerful than the few individuals at the top of the pyramid. As long as we see it that way, and make the choice to take matters into our own hands. We will be headed toward the right track that is best suited to ourselves.
In western astrology the south node/Ketu is in Aquarius, and some astrologers feel this means we should be staying away from what’s best for the collective. I highly disagree on this point for the reasons stated above.
As it is not necessarily the case that the individual identity will be lost in this scenario, on the contrary it is exalted and most revered when a person stands out on their own in line with the majority. It is whether that person is willing to put in the work to stay in this position or not, with the Sun and Mercury squaring Saturn. This could be the only downfall to new unprecedented ways of doing business and ultimately being successful beyond measure.
New Moon Conjunct Mercury Sept 8th
With a Grand Trine between Uranus and Saturn, our mood may feel a bit lighter. Especially since we recently had Saturn station direct. We are no longer waiting on the sidelines for the perfect moment to act while life moves along, we are however plugged right in with it. Using these times to our advantage. We have an opposition with Neptune, signaling for us to watch out for illusionary views that may be holding us back.
During the last week of this opposition I’ve been really curious about it, whereas other astrologers haven’t been so much. Possibly because Neptune is so ambiguous while at the same time being quite illusive, although with Mercury caught up and now the new moon here. Dreams and reality, may become a little more intertwined. Making false reasoning a priority to rationalize before jumping into any decisions, especially controversial ones.
Jupiter sextiling Neptune adds to the cautiousness of these decisions, whether to take them seriously or not. Telling us to make sure our ideas are not just bubbles in the the cloud ready to burst at any minute.
With all the hype and glamour around social media ads, conveying lofty dreams of anything we want really. It can be easy to get caught up in the illusion of living the easy life while running an online business or shop. Yet, even those business’s that have been successful are giving their stores away in contests because they just don’t have enough time to run them, even if they do have hired help. Either that, or they they have to get up before the crack of dawn and work all the way towards midnight to actually make it a viable working business.
All I’m saying is think long and hard before making any major life decisions, regarding finances. As Mercury and Jupiter both rule these and they are both in aspect to Neptune.
