Moon Phases

September 2021 New Moon

The new moon is exact on 6 September 2021 at 8:52pm ET. It’s happening at 14 degrees of Virgo ♍️ and will exactly trine Uranus at 14 degrees of Taurus ♉️

What a great opportunity to surprise yourself or embrace unexpected support. Opportunities may come in ways you haven’t imagined, but have great value. Be open to seeing yourself and others differently.

New moons are excellent opportunities for emotional self-acceptance and this one may do so in an unusual way. I hope it does.

Have a beautiful new moon 🌙

Time for a responsibility reset

Our Cancer sun is currently sextile Uranus and quincunx Saturn and I want to encourage you to let go of stuff you think you should hold on to, both big and small.

Maybe there’s a bottle of product you bought that you don’t really like. You’ve had it for so long. You keep thinking even though you don’t like it, you’ll use it up. Instead, it collects dust, takes up room, and makes you feel like you are failing when you look at it, or that you shouldn’t have bought it, or must keep it or you’re being wasteful. At some point, what you paid for it is irrelevant, because whatever the cost, keeping it is costing you more. Get rid of it.

You signed up for an online class, but are way behind in the lessons. Stacks of books are by your bedside. Your to do lists have sub lists. You keep meaning to call someone, to reorganize a closet, to learn how to do play an instrument …

Whether the stuff you feel you’ve signed up to do (or use) is connected to something you’ve bought, someone you care about it, something you think is great, or just an idea in your head, this is a good time to revaluate.

Get rid of stuff you don’t want. Move things out of the active space of your life, both physically and mentally unless you are actively using them i.e., keep one or two books out and the rest go on shelves, packed away or given away. It’s okay to take that online class off your to do list for now, and even to allow for the possibility that you never go back to it.

It’s okay if you never actually read every book you bought. Look at the books on your shelves as opportunities available to you and not required assignments.

Notice how and where you’ve fallen into the trap of creating responsibility and obligation and free yourself from it.

Time to reset.

There are core things you need to do, but we can bog ourselves down too easily with good intentions.

When you are holding on to stuff that you don’t want, and to ideas of who you are supposed to be that you don’t feel aligned with now, you are unnecessarily limiting yourself.

Healthy boundaries are good and that includes boundaries on what you require of yourself.

When you stay attached to relationships that aren’t healthy for you out of fear, insecurity, obligation, or the belief they can give you something you can’t get any other way, you are limiting your freedom and all you can be.

Your soul can always find another way. There is no revelatory experience that only comes along once. No other person holds the key to your self discovery. No material object intrinsically has power over you. You give it your power.

Embrace this opportunity to deeply nurture your aspirational self by letting go of stuff that doesn’t serve you, beliefs that limit you and trust that you can bring into your life who and what you need, when you’re ready.

Transiting Uranus square Saturn

Uranus is currently square Saturn 🪐 both at 13 degrees. ⁣

Squares are forced awareness, so we have our individuality and sense of connection forcing awareness of our need for structure, boundaries and timing. ⁣

Be yourself. 💫💜⁣

When you try to be different and choose not to like or enjoy something because it’s ordinary, common etc., you aren’t being your unique self. You’re craving external validation that you’re unique. ⁣

You have nothing to prove. ⁣

No one else is the combination of everything that is YOU ❤️💥 ⁣

It can be boring and tedious to be around people that try so hard to make you think they are special. More importantly, you’re investing your energy into creating an image for others instead of reveling in who you are.⁣

People that just express who they are 🌀 regardless of how strange or ordinary the expression are vibrant and fascinating. Somehow they make even their ordinary parts feel unexpected, because of how everything combines together.⁣

You sparkle most 🌟 when you equally don’t care if people think you’re weird or ordinary. Just do you. It’s about as soulful as it gets.

Higher Octave Planets

Time to dust off this blog!

The higher octave planets are Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. The planets represent energies in the chart, so think of these higher octaves as higher vibrations of the three personal planets they connect to, namely Mercury, Venus and Mars.

Mercury is the rational mind, how we communicate via language. It’s what we believe makes sense. Mercury can show how we learn, how we take in information, how we process information. Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury and it is the “ah ha” within it is. Uranus is the moment of discovery, our ability to see the connection between seemingly unconnected things. It is the stroke of genius that brings information together and forms something new – discovery, invention, innovation. Uranus is also how we differentiate ourselves, our sense of individuality. It is how we experience and express our uniqueness while staying connected to the whole, to the universe, to each other.

Venus is our value system. It’s how we give and receive love. It’s what we prioritize, what we value, what we are able and willing to love. It’s how we perceive beauty. Neptune is the higher octave of Venus and it is our ability to be love. It is our intuition, our compassion, our ability to empathize, to feel what others feel. Neptune is our creative energy and is visionary, dreamy, and our need to save and rescue. Neptune is transcendent love and a conduit for the soul’s expression in this life.

Mars is our vitality. It is our ambition, sex drive, physical energy. Mars is the energy that drives us to action. It relates to our body, how we move physically as well as the actions we take in the world. Pluto is the higher octave of Mars and is our will. It is our ability to perceive we have a choice. Pluto is about control, empowerment and transformation and our willingness and ability to surrender to a deeper wisdom that can guide our actions. Pluto is the phoenix that is reborn from the ashes. The soul expresses divine will through Pluto.

When looking at Mercury, Venus, and Mars in a chart always look at their higher octaves. Doing so will give you a deeper view of the energy. Pay attention to aspects formed between these personal planets and their higher octave. Look at how the energies may be working together or at odds and you will have insight into strength and struggles in the chart.

I am considering starting a podcast in 2017. If you would like to join me in the podcast and discuss some of your chart with you, email me at Lisa@karmicastrology.com.
