Astro News September 25, 2015

Today, we all are feeling the eclipse energy as it builds to  a peak this Sunday. The Libra Sun also hits the Nodes of Fate today. Watch for signs and symbols pertaining to the karma you are dealing with and the direction in which you should head. These signs are all around you. You just need to take notice. If you are an Empath, you are feeling the energies of this eclipse coming much more than other people. You are sensing pain, joy, anxiety and more. Many of you are reporting that you can't sleep or are getting up at odd hours and cannot get back to sleep. This eclipse energy is affecting your sleep patterns too. 

Mercury Retrograde in Libra is also square to Pluto so if you are feeling pulled in several directions at once, it's because there are other planets squaring this week too. But this Pluto square is the most powerful one and then later in the week, Mars will square Saturn. This will give us a reality check of sorts. We will be able to see people's ulterior motives. Lies, scandal and secrets are being exposed. Although it can be difficult to see people's true colors, it will be good to clearly see people for what they truly are. These aspects help expose situations that you need to be aware of so you can make educated choices. Today and throughout the weekend, the energy promotes opportunities to talk things over with friends, your therapist or your astrologer.

Meanwhile, Mars enters Virgo Friday and this means we are all getting down to business. Virgo is the sign of the Worker Bee so you are going to feel like tackling a lot of work. However with mercury retrograde, it is best to finish things up between now and October 9th and then start new work projects after that.

Friday could be a weird day as old memories and situations from this past summer come up, especially from Late July and August.

Mars entering Virgo this weekend brings energy and drive to the part of our chart that contains this sign. There was just an eclipse in Virgo September 13 and Jupiter moved into Virgo in August. The north node will soon be there too. So there is a lot of Virgo energy in the atmosphere. Mars will be in for Virgo for about six weeks. This is where you should be focusing your energy if you want to accomplish a great deal. What is your assignment from the Universe the next six weeks with Mars here?  What should be working on to be most effective? It's different for all of us depending on where Virgo falls in our personal charts. 

Another big aspect...

Pluto in Capricorn moves forward so there is a huge shift and change in direction that deals with our power and personal gain. Tap into your personal power and get to the heart of matters. You will feel this shift and want to go after something like never before. You'll be super motivated.

On Saturday, Mars will square Saturn. These two are not happy connecting. It's like an ex who you stilll have to deal with that won't leave you alone. Some sort of challenge may occur that you must deal with under this aspect. Be aware of people picking fights just for the sake of picking fights. This aspect is the hardest for Virgo, Pisces, Gemini and Sagittarius. 

And don't forget the Eclipse this Sunday in Aries. There'll be some sort of a breakthrough happening for many of you.

It s a karmic time and speaks to our relationship karma, obligations and promises we made to others. For Empath Types, it will be an intense weekend and you'll grow to understand and gain more clarity about your relationships. Something may end. It may have to, It may need to. But regardless of what comes out of this eclipse, it could take up to 3 months to see the full benefit of it.
