Stars Above Kitsap: Full Moon Lunar Eclipse - Libra

 Super Moon Lunar Eclipse - First of Tetrad

Super Moon Lunar Eclipse - First of Tetrad

You Tarzan. Me Jane.

Rhett has Scarlett. The Lone Ranger travels with Tonto. Beauty tames the Beast. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton acted out their passion for all the world to see. Sonny and Cher said it all in “The beat goes one.” It's the eternal dance between men and women. Active and receptive. Outer and inner. Aries and Libra.

Any ballerina will tell you the work that goes into achieving the moment of balance on a toe shoe. She makes it look easy, but for all the focus, the balance point lasts a mere moment, as she passes through it, and begins her fall to earth. If you've managed any balance in any area of your life, you know the blood, sweat and tears required!

Aries' and Libras' Equinoxes begin with on perfectly balanced point. Monthly full moons bring another balance between the male sun, and the feminine moon. One single moment in the month we attempt the still-point, and go a little luna-tic with full moon madness. Or is that excitement at having achieved the balance for even one brief moment?

Throw in a Lunar Eclipse at the Full Moon (Sept. 27 at 7:50 PM) and a Super Moon to boot (26,000 miles closer to earth than usual) and the idea of a balance point gets even more of a boost. As if those aren't enough indicators, Mercury, the communication god, retrograde in Libra, demands we rethink, revise and review our relationships. Clue: the ones that don't work this month, probably just don't work!

How is the harmony between your inner life and the world? How balanced are you between initiating action and receiving it? Do you give too much or take too much concerning your spouse and closest friends? Do your partnerships match with your values and purpose in life?

This is the moment when we focus on balance and relationships, inner and outer. Then it is back to Mickey and Minnie, Bella and Edward. You Tarzan. Me Jane.

HOROSCOPES Sept 26 – Oct 12

Dear Libra, we see your beauty, but the stress and strain of an eternal focus on balance weighs heavy. Cosmic advice is to give from your heart and pass on social nicety, give up giving too much! Review what others bring to you. Are they doing their part? No? Prune, for beauty's sake.

Scorpio, balance practical and ethereal needs. Let spirit guide you which means a little quiet, meditative time is in order. Let the answers come to you. Networking opportunities abound. Pursue the ones you want and let others fall like autumn leaves. Take your moment on the stage and bow!

Sagittarius, groups need your creative view but not to carry out your mission. Pragmatic, practical visions and serious, get-down-to-business actions are the way. You carry authority but must work for the respect. Blunt opinions ignoring feelings have a boomerang effect. Tape this to your wall.

Capricorn, yes, life is political-every time you act or speak. Do so wisely. Work is your be-all but even you, dear Goat, need family and nest. Don't take too much at home and give too much at work. After the last five years, surely you can trust the unseen world to hold and support you.

Aquarius, balance broad philosophy and personal opinions - which could be edgy as you rein in too many groups, people, ideas. Ground thoughts with pencil in hand. Idealism, the right group and steady friends are the ticket. Deep intimacy wants you out of your head and into the... You get it!

Pisces, you are worth it, and emotionally need support for who you are and how you do it. Do NOT give away your power even to a soul-mate. Meditate on the Pope or the Dalai Lama. They too work in the spiritual world but you wouldn't call them woo-woo or powerless. Let it work through you.

Aries, do you feel whiny about not getting 'enough?' That's a clue to balance give-and-take - not to gallop off into the sunset. New image: soldiers helping after Katrina or Haiti – not an aggressive stance but one that takes courage. Like tackling the pile of details at work! Get busy!

Taurus, pleeazzee, take it down a notch. Sit, stay, be quiet. Listen to your body. Even your steadfast little bull can only take so much. The new Venus cycle is about play and fun around home and family. You don't have to be the river boat gambler or Don Juan - just chill.

Gemini, network but pick fun groups who love your dynamic mind. Close friends bright enough to keep up with you add spice to movies, lectures, conferences and other venues with diverse food for the mind. At home, details. Be out with focused purpose looking for new horizons.

Cancer, go home, little Crab, re-center. Puttering time helps you feel the beat of the masses, which move like the tide, day in and out, subtle shifts and changes. What are they responding to, what's the next 'thing?' You arrive back at work with important information for the team. This is your forte.

Leo, daily errands, clerks, bros and sisters, talking, chatting, disseminating info, teaching, public appearances,'s a rush! Personal appearance counts - can't show up dressed like a fairy if you have Lady Macbeth ambitions. Use your radiance with purpose and shine!

Virgo, what's yours, what's mine, what is ours together? You have charisma and energy so don't bowl your financial/emotional partner over on your way to executing the plan. Some sit and stay quiet time lets you receive instructions for proceeding with grace without giving power away.
