START NOTHING: 7:22 am to 4:06 pm Sun, 12:24 pm to 8:20 pm Tues., and 9:48 pm to 11:05 pm Thurs.
Monday, Sept. 6, is packed with good luck for every sign. If you’ve been waiting to launch something, there are many worse days!
ARIES: March 21-April 19
The work goes on, Aries. Protect your health with proper diet and clothing; follow safety rules. You might be working with fire or machinery (more than usual). Your relationships have started becoming affectionate and lively — keep everything light and reject no one. October will show you who belongs in your life and who doesn’t. (An old flame might be on the horizon.) As always in 2021, short communications and trips are better than long. Avoid legal matters until next February.
Sunday starts romantic, but by this evening you realize you just better get to work. Although Monday is a holiday in many places, it is an extremely lucky day for you in work, machinery, health and related areas. A great time to buy a computer, car or other machinery try to do it before supper time (PDT). Work fills Tuesday also.
Relationships face you Wednesday/Thursday. There is a separative influence here, but also some great friendly and affectionate openings. Much depends on you: do you argue or love? Life’s secrets emerge Friday/Saturday. Dig deep for treasure, financial, sexual or emotional. These are not particularly lucky Friday, but they can be Saturday.
TAURUS: April 20-May 20
Romance is high on your agenda, Taurus. So are creative efforts, gambles and risk-taking, beauty and pleasure. Dive into these, even if you don’t think they’re that practical right now. They are practical in the sense that they will prepare you for new adventures and rid your life of staleness. However, be ethical and upright — don’t yield to any verboten pleasures or extramarital temptations.
Your chores are starting to demand attention — co-workers are affectionate and talkative. Remember, all 2021, earned income is better than investments. You might deserve a pay raise — ask for it before year’s end.
Sunday starts with a down-home vibe, relaxation and family. But this eve through Tuesday highlights the romantic influences mentioned above. Monday is especially lucky and could bring singles a new love. For artists and creators among you, genius inspiration arrives!
Tackle chores Wednesday/Thursday. You will get them done, but don’t seek cooperation Thursday — work alone. Relationships arrive Friday/Saturday. Opportunities, relocation themes, and opposition mingled with acceptance. Friday is not easy nor fortunate, but Saturday makes up for it.
GEMINI: May 21-June 20
The accent remains on your family, real estate, home, garden, mother nature, nutrition, rest and contemplation. This is your time to recuperate, Gemini. You have a lot of hope for your family, yet you’re peevish and impatient toward them, too. Organize games, fun things: this will reduce friction.
But it won’t all be “down-home” — a streak of romance winds through these days — should you take advantage, or press your case? I think I’d take what comes, without pressing for more. You might soon (late Sept., first half Oct.) re-unite with a former love. Remember, all ’21 — you’re in a wise, stable, calm mood. Don’t be too eager to join with erratic or temperamental people.
Sunday starts with a restless feeling, but by nightfall (PDT) you will settle into a deep down-home influence lasting through Tuesday. Monday is fantastically fortunate, so do something involving home or security — or love! Tuesday’s okay.
Romance awakens and Wednesday/Thursday. Luck is mingled here, but mostly good. Be cautious midday Thursday: don’t invest nor indulge “lust.” Tackle chores Friday/Saturday. Eat, dress sensibly. Friday gives you a little grief — don’t invest – but Saturday flows quite well and has a bit of luck for you.
CANCER: June 21-July 22
Errands, mail and calls, short trips, paperwork and easy chores fill these weeks, Cancer. Until mid-month, these activities can be essential to your career progress. At the same time, you are quietly but increasingly attracted to home and your children.
In work zones, remember that 2021 rewards management and delegating more than it rewards doing the job yourself. You might be returning to an old home in several weeks, or might welcome travelling relatives. Major financial developments are still held up until mid October, but they remain lucky — just static.
Sunday’s for shopping, collecting money. But this eve through Tues. brings a surfeit of this whole month’s interests: errands, paperwork, etc. Monday is very fortunate: make some friendly communications, especially with higher ups and social contacts (who might carve out a path to contacting VIPs, etc.).
Be home, at least in heart, Wed./Thurs. A nice, health-giving interval, but don’t pursue romance or partnerships. Romance does arrive Fri./Sat. Friday is difficult and could contain rejection. But Saturday has glamour and grace and a meeting of minds.
LEO: July 23-Aug. 22
Chase money, Leo. Buy/sell, submit invoices, pay debts. September is a good month to learn anything “by heart” and also favours casual intimacy. As mentioned before, you are in a very critical year for relationships, one in which you might find your true mate. But someone you stumble across now, might have a quick affair with, could steer you away from true love’s meeting later this year. So proceed with September’s casual sex offerings “on advisement.”
You feel energetic and full of beans Sunday – alas, there is little to do that leads to anything productive! Oh well, no harm. Pursue money this evening through Tuesday. Shop for bargains, mail invoices, ask for a pay raise, etc. Monday is unusually fortunate, so use it to chase money or sell goods, or to seek rapprochement with a mate, lover or business partner. Tuesday is fine.
Dive into errands, swift, easy chores, paperwork and travel and communications Wednesday/Thursday. Most things go very well here, but avoid work communications Thursday midday (PDT). Bend your path toward home Friday/Saturday. Friday is a bit difficult and might contain a couple of “no responses,” but Saturday is easy, affectionate and free-flowing. So hug your kids, do a bit of gardening and/or enhance your (family’s) security.
VIRGO: Aug. 23-Sept. 22
You’re still number one, Virgo! Your charisma, energy, clout and effectiveness ride a yearly peak. In addition, Mars in your sign until mid-month makes you determined and very sexy. In fact, a sexual affair can start (have started) any time between July 30 and September 15. You might be too impulsive to make wise financial decisions. The cure is easy: just wait and contemplate.
Income concerns are starting to creep in, which is good news — your earnings should start to rise, mildly but appreciably, through Oct. Work/employment progress, held up since June, continues to go in circles until mid October: from this point through December, you can make one of your most fortunate and solid steps to a lucrative employment situation.
Remember, all 2021, you gain from ambition, career, lose from humility, hanging on to security. Be outside, not home.
Sleep in, rest and contemplate Sunday. This eve through Tuesday your energy and charisma soar. Get out, start things, make allies/friends, woo a lover, make the world notice you. Monday’s best, your luck is strong!
Chase money, buy/sell, seek a pay raise or butter up clients — and pay bills — Wednesday/Thursday. A good interval, but don’t waste time chasing romance. Errands, swift, easy chores, short distance travel, communications and paperwork — this fill Fri./Sat. Friday is rather difficult, but Saturdays flows smoothly, unless you get into a political argument.
LIBRA: Sept. 23-Oct. 22
They say it’s darkest before the dawn, Libra (which isn’t really true, as light enters the sky about an hour before sunrise). But it is true that you’re most weary before you explode with energy. The weariness is now, the energy comes late Sept. onward. So spend the couple of weeks ahead in deep rest, contemplation and planning. Finish up neglected chores, pamper your health and show charity to others.
Even this quietude will be interrupted once or twice by people you naturally attract. You might see hints of a coming romance or a long distance trip, or academic immersion. However, these might take quite a few weeks to evolve. Deep, pure romance must wait until mid October.
You are helpful and friendly Sunday, but you tire this evening through Tuesday, when many of the concerns of this month arise. That doesn’t mean they’re unlucky. In fact, Monday is very fortunate, esp. if you are investigating, digging deep, seeking intimate satisfaction, or doing something financial such as investment or debt reduction.
Your energy and charisma rise nicely Wednesday/Thursday. This is a good interval to start intellectual, far travel, or cultural projects. (Not legal ones — leave legal action(s) until mid-Oct. onward.) Avoid chasing security. But do chase money Friday/Saturday. Friday is difficult and needs diplomacy, realism and caution. Saturday flows much more smoothly and supports you in financial and work affairs, but not in romance.
SCORPIO: Oct. 23-Nov. 21
It’s social time, Scorpio! Get out, meet and greet, flirt and welcome, issue and except invitations. A major wish, especially about work or health, could come true this month. Coworkers, especially males, befriend you now. However, some of your contacts are confidential, even secretive. These might be romantic contacts, or spiritual, therapeutic or compassionate contacts. Your home and real estate luck is very good, but delayed until mid October onward. Until then, plan and gather resources.
Sunday brings career, ambition or parenting pressures, but doesn’t give them anywhere to go. So relax. This night through Tuesday brings the highlight of this whole month: optimism, popularity, public acceptance, flirtations and friendly love affairs. Monday is especially fortunate, a good time to make contact. You might be dealing with a future life mate (or your spouse!).
Withdraw, lie low, rest, ponder and plan Wednesday/Thursday. All runs smoothly, but don’t try difficult communications Thurs. midday/eve. Your energy and charisma soar skyward Friday/Saturday. Friday’s difficult, but Saturday runs well — and opens a romantic door.
SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Be ambitious, Sage. Bosses might be snappish, impatient (less so if you work in a primary industry, e.g., forestry) but you have a creative flair in this ambitious area, can think of new ideas, new approaches etc. The impatience and creativity last to mid-Sept. If you’re female, you might think of romancing the boss’s son. I wouldn’t, normally.
Despite September’s environment of hard work, flirtations, affection and uplifting friends wind through. A wish might come true about a potential mate, perhaps someone you are noticing on the social scene, and by late month into October, this could also be someone who returns from your past.
Sunday’s thoughtful but without much result. This evening through Tuesday throws you into the main stream of this month: ambition and career, prestige relations and worldly reputation. Monday is very fortunate in these areas; Tuesday is OK. (Be ambitious, even if Monday’s a holiday. You might exercise that ambition through social means.)
Happiness, social popularity, flirtations, optimism, all come midweek. Avoid money actions Thurs. Retreat Fri./Sat. — rest, watch, be silent. Ponder and plan. Friday’s difficult; Saturday’s fine. Be spiritual, charitable.
CAPRICORN: Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You’re in the midst of a mellow, wise, compassionate and farseeing month, Cap. Academics, law, life philosophy, culture, international affairs, religion and science draw you or enter your days somehow. This influence will reach a peak this week, especially during a hugely fortunate Monday. Buy those tickets!
Money matters have been held up since June, and will remain so until mid-Oct. onward — when all the good luck that’s been “stored” will be released. But even now, though you’re in an intellectual, loving month, glimmers of career opportunities and relationships appear. (Soon, late month onward, they’ll grow stronger.)
Tackle chores Sunday, but stick to routine, nothing new. All the matters listed in the first two sentences above, reach a climax and also a new beginning Sunday night through Tuesday. Monday holds an unusual array of good aspects, so don’t waste this day! Be ambitious, or be intellectual, or be a lover – but launch something.
You grow seriously ambitious or career oriented Wednesday/Thursday. Both days are good so give it your best effort. Avoid wishful thinking. A nice social uplift comes Friday/Saturday, as your optimism and cheerfulness rise and friends gather round. Friday might be mildly rejecting, and you might not face any excitement until late in the day, even predawn Saturday. Saturday goes well, finds you popular.
AQUARIUS: Jan. 20-Feb. 18
The accent lies on the depths, Aquarius. On serious sexual involvement, or deep research, medical or lifestyle choices, and financial actions — anything that can change your life in large ways. This can be a tempting phase, Aquarius: for best success, act ethically. This will not be hard, as your mental, philosophical and idealistic side is quite strong all September — and will grow even stronger mid September through October.
You might be dealing with someone now whom you’ll wed in future. (If not, late September onward will bring a former love or spouse back to your life.) Friday begins a month of favour from higher ups, and sweet progress on your career front.
Sunday brings relationships to the fore, but not much comes of it. This night through Tuesday highlights the very things this month is about: depths, hidden treasure, sexual involvement and financial actions, etc. If you possibly can, initiate or plunge into these areas Monday, when your financial, real estate and research skills are enhanced, in some cases by great good luck. Use Tues. to follow up on Monday.
A mellow, wise, thoughtful mood steals over you Wednesday/Thursday. Far travel, international affairs, cultural, legal and philosophical subjects — and love — are favoured. (Behind-scenes ambition? Not favoured.) But true ambition is highlighted Fri./Sat. Friday’s a struggle, esp. around noon (PDT). But Saturday flows well. Talk to a higher-up about a pay raise (early day).
PISCES: Feb. 19-March 20
Relationships fill your world, Pisces. This is a crucial time, when you will either (by your actions, attitudes) make enemies or friends, when you might divorce/separate or marry. Many of the decisions you make now will prove very significant in the January to May 2022 period. You might wait until then to take action. (Not a bad idea.)
This zone does not only include personal relationships, but also relocation possibilities, dealings with the public, potential fame, and opportunities in general. As said last week, you might form a moneymaking partnership or association. Some relationship matters have already gone “behind the curtain” into funding, sexual intimacy, investigation. (Good things will tend to happen in this more consequential “hidden matters” zone into December, especially after mid October.)
Sunday morning faces you with chores. Stick to routine tasks. This eve through Tues. (PDT) heightens the relationship/opportunities theme in splendid ways — Mon. Is particularly fortunate. Chase someone, tell them your dreams or your feelings — ask theirs, too, since they (he/she) hold all the aces.
Those deeper levels (sex, investment, business funding, pregnancy, research, spying) come Wed./Thurs. Again, a good interval, but avoid wishful thinking, esp. if a “legal obstacle” is involved. A sweet, loving, wise and understanding mood steals over you Friday/Saturday. Issues of far travel, law, academia, culture and big ideas will predominate. Friday will be a little disappointing, perhaps brings a rejection. But Saturday is smooth and lucky.
Not much to say. My computer fried itself a week ago, have finally bought a new one.
The following article MIGHT have been on this blog before. I found it in back files of 2019 or so. I think I’ll do a series here, going from past to future, through the lens of Pluto. In addition, this helps share my methods with other astrologers. Here goes:
Pluto: Creator of History and Future Events: Part One.
iN ASTROLOGY, when the Moon, Sun or a planet returns to the exact degree, minute and second of arc that it occupied when a person was born, this is called a “return.” Many astrologers erect and read solar and lunar returns; the return of Saturn is often used, for example, to portray (or more accurately, to find clues about) a 28.5-year period involving practical matters, maturity, restrictions, etc. For every sign, the Saturn return, for example, means something else besides practicalities: for Gemini, for example, the Saturn return also addresses the sexual and financial/asset influences for the 3 decades ahead. For Cancer, the Saturn return bears on marriage, relocation, partnership, opportunities, etc.
When the Moon, Sun, or planets enter a sign, it’s called an “ingress.” But I am proposing that when a planet returns to its own sign (Jupiter into Sagittarius, Pluto into Scorpio, etc.) we call it a “sign return” or “home return.” In the following, I’m just going to use “return.”
When Pluto returns to Scorpio, major historical trends/events begin. The key here is “begin.” Often these beginnings are very small, seminal, and slowly grow to historical proportions. This fits, as Pluto/Scorpio rules semen, inception/conception, death and birth (and rebirth, hence the phoenix symbol for this sign). The male semen is microscopic, but joins a female egg and creates a 200-pound man. If in multiple instances Pluto’s “return” to Scorpio does coincide with seminal historical developments, this is almost as sure a proof of astrology as Michel Gauquelin’s statistics.
In examining such returns, I have avoided erecting a rising chart, for two reasons: 1) where would you locate it? and 2) the travel of light from Pluto to the Earth is long and occurs in varying distances from the Earth. Do we use, then, the estimated moment Pluto’s light touches us, or the moment Pluto actually enters Scorpio? The difference between these varies from over 4 to under 6 hours, depending on where the two are in their orbits.
For this reason, I have used only Solar charts for the Pluto return. (In closer planets, with more accurate “light landing” times, one could use a rising chart, located to the place one wonders about. For example, a Mars return to Aries or a Jupiter return to Sagittarius could be “placed” in London, or New York, or Boise, Idaho, to see its effects on that locale/nation.)
I call the approximately 250 years following a Pluto return, the “Pluto era.”
Here’s an example of Pluto’s seminal potency:
Pluto entered Scorpio on November 27, 13 AD. If the Bible is right, this is the year Christ left his family and joined the synagogue — that is, started his religious career, which as we know ended in the “Christianizing” of 2.2 billion people (stats: 2010) or 31 per cent of the earth’s population. This had had an overwhelming, permeating effect on western thought, literature, religion, etc.
Christ’s birth/death times are uncertain and disputed. Perhaps he was born in 13 AD, or 13 BC! In either case, it hardly matters: as Pluto’s orbit is approximately 247 – 248 years, the difference of even 20 or 30 years is still tiny.
Next week I’ll list the 8 Pluto returns since Christ, the year they occurred, and their seminal effect. It won’t be thorough, just a list so you can see that Pluto’s return really does coincide with deeply progenative events, such as Christ’s birth affecting 2,000 years of literature and thought.
