Though a plethora of planets will remain in rational, practical Virgo for most of this eventful week, Neptune and a full Pisces moon will present a series of challenges to Virgo’s calm, methodical modus operandi. From its home in mystical Pisces, Neptune will form direct oppositions to the Virgo Sun on Tuesday and to Mars, also in Virgo, early Saturday morning. Similarly, an overnight Full moon early Saturday will put all of us under that illusive and confusing Pisces influence. And even before we reach peak Pisces full moon, a contentious squabble between Mars and Jupiter will erupt on Thursday, forcing more issues to the fore. That one is taking place as the year’s final Jupiter square to Neptune mounts to its September 21st standoff. Astrology’s mutable signs clear clutter and prepare us for the incoming undertakings of the cardinal sign cycles, and this week the Sun, Venus, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Neptune and that full moon will be in mutable signs. Something’s got to give, and the squares and oppositions being formed by these planets will be showing us exactly what that something is. So while we tumble through this week and struggle with what to leave in and what to leave behind, Neptune’s indelible fingerprints will be all over our decision-making. On the helpful side, the oceanic outer planet of music, poetry and art will offer spiritual insights and a big picture perspective. From its shadow side, which is particularly pronounced with Neptune at home in Pisces, we’ll have to guard against delusion, addiction (yes that includes tech) and endless ambiguity. If all of that sounds, or feels, too daunting, look for some brutal honestly on Friday when the Sun and Pluto join forces in a supportive trine. Pluto’s take no prisoners approach may seem harsh, but its relentless quest for the truth will prove enlightening and a dependable antidote to Piscean escapism. On Saturday Mercury and Venus will slip into the cardinal air sign of Libra, a signal that we are indeed stepping into new territory. In fact, the week will conclude with the moon in pioneering Aries. And although Venus and Mercury’s shifts into Libra signify the onset of a new phase, there’s still plenty of Virgo discernment available while the Sun is there until the 23rd and Mars until October 4th. Best look? Sporting a Bose headset when your ship passes those seductive, singing sirens.
