Today we are talking about this week’s lunar transits and how they may affect our daily lives!
Monday, September 19th
This afternoon, the moon in Cancer forms a sextile with Venus in Virgo. This sextile fills our lives with love and balance. We feel safe and secure with our romantic partners. We are gracious and considerate of others. Now is a wonderful time to consider starting a family or becoming active in your community.
About an hour later, the moon forms a sextile with Uranus in Taurus. This sextile grants us ambition and a can-do attitude. We are more than happy to help out with projects, both at work and at home. Thanks to our pragmatic sensibilities, we are able to persuade others easily to our way of thinking. We also may have a great desire to travel at this time. We crave a bit of freedom and are curious to see what the world has to offer. It may be time to plan a small getaway or take a day trip

Early this morning, the moon forms a trine with Neptune in Pisces. Under this trine, we are innovative and have a great enthusiasm for life. We have an appreciation for the beauty around us as well as within us. We feel artistic and attractive. Now is the time for us to put our imaginations to good use and pursue some creative endeavors.
Around breakfast time, the moon moves in opposition to Pluto in Capricorn. This placement can make us feel disappointed or disheartened. To counteract this dejected feeling you may turn to creature comforts, or you may indulge in things that bring you pleasure. It’s perfectly alright to distract yourself from the hurt every now and then. But do not overindulge. Too much of anything is bad for you, and an over-dependence on pleasure can lead to physical, mental, and emotional illness.
Right before noon, the sun in Virgo forms a sextile with the moon. Our communicative skills are superb under this sextile. This placement balances the masculine and feminine energies. Under this transit, we feel very content in our space. Loved ones are happy to help us at this time. Be accepting of their help while you can, because this sextile will not last very long.
Later in the day, the moon moves into Leo. Under this moon, we are overcome with self-confidence. We feel amorous. It is very easy to attract romantic partners at this time. We may have a casual fall “flirtationship.” At this time, we feel extremely inspired. We may want to express ourselves in as many creative ways as possible. Don’t hold back! Find a stage and demand your spotlight.
As we get ready for bed, the moon forms a sextile with Mercury in Libra. Under this sextile, we are capable and discerning. With our newfound self-confidence and awareness, we are more open-minded than ever. Thanks to our communicative abilities, we are able to engage more effectively with those around us. Use your openness to heed the thoughts and needs of others.
Wednesday, September 21st
In the wee hours of the morning, the moon forms a trine with Jupiter in Aries. Under this transit, we feel cheerful and generous. We attract those around us with our optimism and inspire others with our altruistic pursuits. Now is a great time to revisit that project you have been working on. This project may help to inspire and comfort others.
Thursday, September 22nd
Right after midnight, the moon forms a strong sextile with Mars in Gemini. Under this sextile, we feel like we can take on anything. We handle our issues in a pragmatic way and have the courage to face situations that once intimidated us. We feel open and honest with ourselves as well as others.
As we begin to wake up, the moon forms a square with Uranus. Our moods continue to be unpredictable under this square. This instability is causing a rift with our romantic partners. Our heightened sensuality and growing irritability make our relationships run hot and cold. When we feel moody, it is easy to slip into old habits that bring us comfort. This coping mechanism is perfectly alright, as long as it does not lead to self-destructive tendencies.
A couple of hours later, the moon forms an opposition with Saturn in Aquarius. Under this opposition, we may feel restricted and unsatisfied with life. It may be difficult for us to be honest with others about how we feel. We may find it hard to trust others as well. This distrust of others may cause us to feel isolated from our community, especially our loved ones. We may feel alienated from a maternal figure. It may be time to reach out to a close confidant, a spiritual leader, or mental health professional.
Friday, September 23rd
This morning, the moon moves into Virgo. There has been some temptation this week to over-indulge in creature comforts and self-destructive behaviors. But today, you are overcome with the need to take care of yourself mentally, emotionally, and physically. You can do some stretches before bed. You can fix yourself a yummy and healthy midnight snack. You can listen to your favorite song or ASMR video to help you relax before you go to sleep. Take care of yourself in a way that makes you feel good and rested.
