Eclipse - A Drama or Comedy?
Quicksilver could be the code word for this full moon eclipse (Friday, Sept 16 at 12:05 pm PDT). Mercury, quicksilver in the elements, is a fast talker and happy to joust with Mars, Mr. Sword Play - quicksilver of another sort. We may find our mouths working faster than our good sense and surprised at the fast and furious reactions coming at us. (What? What did I say?)
Confusion ensues as the sweet Pisces moon, the wounded healer Chiron and the calm Sun in no- nonsense Virgo struggle toward a body and soul healing. The trigger point comes when too much pressure around getting the job done drains the joy out of nebulous longings for imagination and spirit.
This eclipse unfolds like a Shakespearean play that could be a drama - but may be a comedy. Still, with Mercury and Mars loose on stage, mixing it up and bumping into our hidden wounds, protective reactions can come out overstated, aggressive and personal.
No one escapes an eclipse so everyone needs a slow-down-strategy! Step outside for a smoke (even if you don't), count to ten, go to the restroom, Do whatever it takes to slow down snappy responses and error on the side of kindness.
Of course, this is far easier said than done so a forgiveness strategy could come in handy - whether applied to ourselves or the other. When we (or they) put our foot in it, phrases like “Did I say that out loud?”, “Oops!”, and “OMG, I can't believe I just said that!” followed by a belly laugh can launch a renewed camaraderie and way forward.
Sometimes all it takes to find a new path is a bump in the road or a hilarious misstep. However you get there, this eclipse bounces us out of our ruts and ultimately, your life changes elicit a round of applause.
Horoscopes September 16 – 30
Virgo, waking up to your own needs demands change and eclipses don't let you slide. Logic may be on your side but move gently. Healing is afoot and partners are tender. Clues may be held in threads you dropped nineteen years ago. You're at a crossroads and you get to choose.
Libra, this moons asks you to look over the past year and deal with what you haven't. You're ultra sensitive to others. Seek solitude and quiet as you integrate last year's journey. An uplifted faith in yourself makes you eager to expand horizons - one step at a time and gently, please.
Scorpio, you are sorting and filing friends. Who is in and who is out is based on a vision for your future. Friends with real support are required. Flex your self-worth and assert your independence. You are ready and capable so flow with the action ahead. You have angels on your wings.
Sagittarius, that sigh of relief is your ruling planet moving into a friendly sign. Compatible people open doors to future growth. If difficult patterns develop between you and yours, either at work or home, slow down. Let go of perfectionism, overwork and remember your people count.
Capricorn, work lightens up and shines a spotlight on you, so take a bow. Behind the scenes, you're working hard in ways you can't put our fingers on. People and communication are like a tsunami. It feels – exhausting. Extra rest, water, nature, music, and quiet balance you out.
Aquarius, wow - groups, psychological pressures, joint monies, and a nebulous sense of self-worth push you to get clearer about your inner workings. Are you going after money, venture capital, challenging a will, a huge loan? It's almost too much. Do what you can and ease up.
Pisces, looking at yourself through the eyes of your most important others is one lesson. The other is seeing their point of view, especially with a beneficial visitor in your house of business partners. Is your business plan together? Know what you want and what you want to give.
Aries, this eclipse packs a ton of potential when you remember your goal. Look at the overall picture and wait for more information before you get your sword out. You feel vulnerable and don't like it. Take a break and chant a mantra. Set positive habits in motion and re-ignite daily routines.
Taurus, what you want in relationship is pushing changes and you don't like change. While you just wanna have fun (maybe a love affair) there's pressure to be more intimate with your own patterns. Take it easy on self and others. Establish routines toward your heart's goals.
Gemini, pressure builds at work, home and with your closest friends and mate. Work doesn't satisfy like it did and you have new thoughts on home. Revisit your family and roots. Remember who you are at the foundation and make improvements from there. Talk therapy, anyone?
Cancer, communications, small projects and helpful connections abound. New ideas are poppin' as you talk, share, and listen to the folks you bump into in a normal day in your neighborhood. Tempers heat up trying to get too much done or incorporating too many ideas. Find the flow.
Leo, a check up on financial and security creeps into joint finances. Security increases as you get real about cash flow, life style costs, and you and your partner are on the same page. Fun money is the trigger point. Your core values include fun so budget for it! Time to raise your rates? Truth.
