Have your answer ready
A bigger experience beckons
There are deals to be done this month, Aquarius. These can be both the financial variety and also those of the heart. But no matter what form they take, they will require a definitive Yes or No answer now.
Of course, that deal on the table could be brand spanking new and look at lot different to what’s been on offer before. If so, is it time to give it serious consideration? If you keep saying yes to the same old thing over and over again and not liking the result, maybe its time to choose different.
This could especially apply to anything to do with romance, your creative life, babies, children, young people and parenting. The month starts with Ceres in your 5th angling back to Saturn in your 1st. Plus we have a superb trine between Venus in your 9th to Jupiter on the 6th. Lucky breaks, an opportunity, a new deal on love, big news or even a trip or invitation. It (or they) come wrapped in the promise of big benefits. But your answer is required. As is your participation.
Mercury in your 9th trines the North Node also in your 5th on the 3rd. We have three key trines involving the Node this month. But the 3rd has a special delivery for you via cosmic courier. Winging its ways across the sky comes a Mystic Rectangle. A super-charged aspect which looks like the back of an envelope when we see it in a chart.
Knock, knock, ding dong, ping ping. Answer the door or the call to action. Let opportunity in. Don’t procrastinate or worse – pretend you’re not home! The last Mystic Rectangle appeared back in July. What happened back then?
Think message in a bottle, email, snail mail, news, texts, that WhatsApp group, answers, announcements, invitations or door knocks. There’s an offer, acceptance or something opens up for us under these aspects which are a mix of trines, sextiles and oppositions. They are free-flowing but at the same time, we have to make some kind of effort or stretch ourselves. Or we have already done that and now comes our result. Or we now have to give our answer.
This one is asking you to look back at those choices and decisions. What opportunities you say yes or no to. The results of this. What you learned from it. Don’t whatever you do tip into regret territory or blame yourself. Look instead at the experiences these choices brought you. Placing it all in this context opens your mind to learning and leads to your next decision being more empowered.
Mars sits in its ruling 8th telling you to feel any fear but do it anyway. Neptune asks if its time to leave past thinking behind. The Moon in your 6th and Pluto in your 12th could simply show you that old ways of doing things have been holding you back. Or past choices.
The truth behind your choices
There may be very intense emotions around what is on offer even if it is clearly to your benefit, Aquarius. If we know saying yes to something will take us outside of our comfort zones, we end up thinking it is the opportunity we should say no to – rather than pushing through our own resistance. The new Moon in your 8th on the 7th shows you the truth behind any fear or reluctance you may feel around moving forward. At which point – you’ll know what answer to give.
Sometimes its the no which frees us rather than the yes. Often we delay making a decision because we not only fear how it will impact the other party, but fear the unknown of striking out on our own. Our relationship may no longer work for instance, but we hang on despite being unhappy because we fear we may end up alone. Or we are in a secure but dead-end job. But we justify staying there by telling ourselves we have no guarantee; one which offers more career progress will work out in the long term. So, we stay stuck.
Take a chance on change
Nothing worth having in life comes with a written guarantee. September says if you need to take a chance on change – the month should offer you an opportunity for that. Do be ready to move with it however. Mercury begins retroshadow from the day of the new Moon in your freedom inspiring 9th and is retrograde from the 27th. The usual retrograde rules apply and in this house especially to travel. But do take it plans will slow, reverse or even come to a standstill at that point until next month.
Venus moves to your 10th zhushing up your professional image. You’re the one with what others are seeking now. Showcase this as this is one of your houses where you are on show. And there is no place Venus likes to be more than the centre of attention. Even on the business stage. So any follow ups or through on those opportunities that appeared should see you in a position to make your very best impression.
Mars sweeps away any lingering doubts over decision making, banishing hesitation and fear when it joins Mercury in your 9th from the 15th. We are now a week away from the Sun joining it. The 20th brings the full Corn or Harvest Moon in your 2nd of money, values and self-worth. The final full Moon of summer marking the time of gathering as the year pivots and day and night becomes equal on the 22nd with the Sun’s entry into your 9th and the equinox. Or if you are in the Southern Hemisphere, this is spring and your time for planting.
On its way to Pisces, the waxing Moon passes both Saturn and Jupiter in your sign. Call this a stocktake around those personal desires and what you believe you deserve. You may look back at what you have achieved since midsummer. This shows you how far you have come and makes the next stage or decision easy. It’s just the next logical move for you. No biggie after all. Under this Moon you can erase any remaining insecurities when you look back on your journey just over these past months. You know you’re so ready for this!
The Sun’s entry into your 9th on the 22nd is your cue to step up and claim a bigger life experience as a result. Don’t pretend you now don’t know what direction you should head in, Aquarius! Fate is at work as the Sun trines the North Node in your 5th promising love-struck opportunities and lucky breaks. Super-sized by the easy, breezy Grand Air Trine between Saturn in your sign, the Moon in your 5th and Mars in your 9th on the 26th.
Venus opposes ruler Uranus in your 4th on the 23rd. You know where you need to direct your resources now but do others? If someone shifts the goal posts on any kind of arrangement, you won’t put up with unilateral decisions. It doesn’t matter if its that business deal or that understanding around who takes out the trash. By now you’ll know some things are up for negotiation but others simply aren’t.
The 29th sees the Sun in your 9th trine Saturn in your 1st while Venus in your 10th trines Neptune in Venus’s ruling 2nd. This could literally hand you rewards, validation or the result you wanted from that decision you made this month, Aquarius. Take away the priceless feeling you made the right choice.
In a nutshell: The year pivots, day and night equals. Time to choose, Aquarius. Something requires a yes or no answer from you. You can’t afford to let fear or hesitation hold you back. So, you may need to opt for a different answer than you have done in the past. You got this!
