September 17th sees three, major influences. Mercury stations Rx in Libra, Jupiter in Virgo opposes Neptune Rx in Pisces, and Saturn enters Sagittarius until December 2017 (after its initial entrance to this sign from December 2014-June 2015).
Jupiter/Neptune is about unprecedented expansion, which can be positive or negative, depending on what’s expanding. Events around the August 29th Full Moon in Pisces, and September 13th New Moon eclipse in Virgo, would have played into this opposition. Meanwhile, Mercury Rx calls for revisions, delays, and a closer examination of both sides of the issue. Saturn’s ingress demands increased focus and accountability, whether you’re being rewarded for your efforts or pushed to take responsibility for your mistakes. This was hinted at back in December.
All in all, a significant day for capitalizing on an opportunity, or making a course correction. But whatever happens, the shift in energy means that something brand new is emerging.
The Jupiter/Neptune opposition can expand a health issue, or stir up more (details, tasks, anxieties) at work. Too, you can capitalize on an inspired approach to a problem, or take a leap of faith regarding what you really want to do. Avoid the temptation to gloss over boring details, or become distracted by unproven potential.
Mercury Rx in your partnership sector triggers relationship reevaluations, repeat conversations, questions or contacts from the past. Partnership decisions may be on hold until Mercury stations direct.
Saturn enters your sector of opportunity, pushing you to get serious about education, travel, legal issues or publishing. If there’s something that you’ve been pondering (should you explore/expand/make it official) Saturn will demand your complete focus.
The Jupiter/Neptune opposition can shine the public spotlight on you/your creations, or intensify a dream about what you might do “if only.” This can be a self-indulgent influence that pushes you no further than your fantasies, and it signals a well-deserved time of relaxation and celebration. But if you want to accomplish something, this energy can also benefit you, as long as you’ve done the work. Pregnancy/birth is also emphasized.
Mercury Rx in your sector of routine can delay work tasks/health news, cause difficulties with co-workers, or see you looking closely at how much you give and get in return. Day to day activities can hit snags, and solutions can be difficult to come by. Note that this is a rebalancing influence, so anything that’s not working (relationships or otherwise) will need to be adjusted in the context of how it fits into your daily life.
Saturn enters your sector of shared resources, focusing you on debts, taxes, loans, your partner’s finances, or physical/emotional intimacy. What you’re lacking, can’t/won’t share, or where you need to build better boundaries will be issues. This is the time to get serious about investments or paying off debts.
The Jupiter/Neptune opposition can see growth/expansion at home, in response to a future ideal. If you want more out there, start with what’s in front of you. There’s huge potential for growth (a new family member, bigger/better house, expanding a home business) but it can also be easy to overextend yourself or miscalculate your growth potential.
Mercury Rx in your sector of self-expression can reconnect you with past romantic attraction, or see you asking for what you want (one more time). A risk that didn’t work out previously may be ripe for another shot. Too, you could be considering the pros and cons of a new creative/romantic venture.
Saturn enters your partnership sector, focusing you on a commitment or ending. Yes, either one is possible with this transit, and it all depends on what’s led up to this moment. Saturn is the “get serious or forget it” transit, and any relationship that’s not ripe for the next phase will end. For some Geminis, a new relationship with additional responsibilities can manifest. An existing relationship can also ask more from you, and its success will depend on how you and your partner agree on the workload. At its most successful, this transit can cement you and your love together.
The Jupiter/Neptune opposition can bring big hopes/promises, but you’ll need to check to ensure that they’re are based in reality. This applies to any promises/announcements that you make. This energy can also signify a high point in learning, writing, sales, or creative inspiration.
Mercury Rx in your domestic sector can see you revisiting a family discussion, or looking more closely at domestic documents, or issues involving a home business. Relocations/renovations can be up for consideration. An issue/person from the past can take prominence, as you work out the balance between past, present and future.
Saturn’s move into your sector of routine gets you focused on the essentials. Health, diet, exercise and medical issues will become important, especially if there’s something you’ve been ignoring. This is the transit that will demand more disciplined self-care, and can bring repercussions if you’ve been letting something slide. Daily responsibilities and work tasks can also increase. For some, it can mean leaving a job that’s no longer valid. In general, this transit is the time to tighten up your routine, organizational skills and self-care.
The Jupiter/Neptune opposition can signal a financial win, or disappointment. In both cases, the potential for expansion will have lead to increased hopes (and perhaps spending). The outcome will depend on how cautions/realistic you’ve been with your resources. This energy can also encourage self-indulgence, and a sense that you’ll never run out of something. Check the facts and do the math.
Mercury Rx in your communication sector can see you reconsidering your words, or looking more closely at what someone else has said. All communication/documents can be delayed or confused, so don’t push for an answer just yet. Sibling issues can be up for review, or you may return to a past conversation. In all relationships, you or someone else may change mind or heart. However, things can change again once Mercury stations direct.
Saturn into your sector of self-expression pushes you to get serious about what you want. Whether it’s a new romance, creative work, or something involving children, extra effort and focus is now your game plan. Extra responsibility too. Saturn may create delays and discouraging scenarios, but this happens to test your dedication in an area that is not synonymous with hard work. In some cases, you may be forced to shift your focus to something that is more viable.
Jupiter in your sign opposes Neptune in your partnership sector, bringing a moment of ripeness to relationships, public identity, physical appearance or personal goals. Everything willbe inflated, including hopes and anxieties. There’s room for tremendous personal growth, but you need to be cautious about projecting what you want/fear onto others. This is very much a case of getting back what you put out.
Mercury Rx in your sector of personal resources can see you looking closely at earned money, self-esteem issues and emotional security. Do you have what you need? If not, this is the time to plan (but not act, just yet). Balancing your needs with what others can give (and take) is also a theme, especially with the Jupiter/Neptune opposition across your relationship axis. If you’ve been making emotional or financial sacrifices, now’s the time to stop the bleeding.
Saturn into your domestic sector gets you back on track with home/family responsibilities. What you want to build in your personal life (a lasting relationship, living in better home/neighbourhood, an increased sense of security) will be your focus, and you’ll have to decide where your responsibilities lie. In some cases, this transit can point to increased commitments to a family member/parent. This transit can also pull you back from the public eye, in order to facilitate your increased focus on home/going home (sometimes a move closer to your childhood home can happen).
The Jupiter/Neptune opposition taps into hidden potentials, secrets or overlooked issues. A secret fantasy/hope could peak (even if that only happens in your head) or you could feel the urge to go public with something that’s been brewing. Too, something that seemed small/inconsequential could take centre stage.
Mercury Rx in your sign gives you time to pause, regroup, change your mind or compare your options. This is not the time for definitive conclusions or answers, so allow yourself to do what you do best; weigh the pros and cons. However, you may also find that plans and decisions are temporarily delayed. Someone else may end up backtracking, or someone from your past could reach out. Know that all Mercury Rx issues are temporary, because things will shift again once Mercury stations direct.
Saturn into your communication sector means it’s time to recommit yourself to a more definitive style of communication. If you want people to respect your words, work on your delivery (walk the talk). Official documents and announcements are also hi-lighted, but note that while Mercury is Rx, it may be better to wait (if you can) to sign anything final. Along with Mercury Rx, the start of this Saturn transit allows you to take your time and craft your responses carefully, or decide where you want to focus your attention/research/learning. Sibling issues may also take precedence for the entire Saturn transit.
The Jupiter/Neptune opposition can open up new public/social opportunities, widen your audience, or expand your horizons. This could be a peak moment for your public image, or a chance to see a cherished ideal come to fruition. Too, you may find that your hopes/fantasies have been projected onto the wrong group/person.
Mercury Rx in your hidden sector can stir up instinctive realizations, powerful dreams (with important messages) or set a “goodbye” in motion. Logic will take second place to what feels right, or what you sense beneath the surface. Gossip, secrets and oblique references will have plenty to reveal.
As Saturn finally leaves your sign (for your sector of earned resources) it will be time to take what Saturn’s transit brought you (increased responsibility, more discipline, more control, a major lifestyle change) and make it work for you. This Saturn transit is often associated with an increased need for discipline/organization around earned money, and cash flow may not come as easily. You’ll have to work harder/smarter to get whatever you do earn, which can sometimes result from a new job with more responsibilities. Overall, this Saturn transit is pushing you to focus on exactly what you need to feel secure.
The Jupiter/Neptune opposition can open up new career ideas/opportunities, as a dream job (or the idea of a dream job) takes shape. Too, you could be confronted with the consequences of slacking off at work, or you could find out that your big hope for the future was an illusion. Either way, this opposition will help you dissolve limits (professional or personal) and allow you to see the full scope of your path ahead, and which direction you should be moving in.
Mercury Rx in your social sector can reconnect you with friends/groups from the past, or see you pondering the validity of a current social set. Your entire social image is up for review. Watch for the usual Mercury Rx snafus; delayed/changed plans, or difficulty getting your point across to others. Have a Plan B, just in case.
Saturn briefly entered your sign in December, but he’s returned for the long haul. This is a new chapter for you, and you may feel extra pressure to perform/deliver/shoulder extra work. It will be a time of defining who you are and what you stand for. In some cases, this could mean growing up (no matter how old you are) by finally releasing an outdated/self-destructive hope or habit. Saturn leaves no room for escapism. Too, this transit can bring you face to face with a relationship commitment, or a commitment to yourself. If there’s something you’ve been putting off, Saturn will push you to get it done.
The Jupiter/Neptune opposition can signal an achievement (graduation) or the realization of a long-awaited dream. Long-distance travel is hi-lighted, or the launch of a publication/public platform for your ideals. Overall, a fine time to expand, explore or go on an adventure, as the unexplored is wide open. However, if ideals/expectations, a public announcement or legal matter are based on misinformation, there can be an exposure.
Mercury Rx in your career sector can signal a time when you question your career path or relationship to management. Promotions/meetings can be delayed, and a job search can hit a slow patch. Mercury Rx is excellent for revising your resume, skills or professional image.
Saturn into your hidden sector can start the process of a long goodbye, as it becomes clear that a section of your life needs to be rerouted. The goodbye may or may not be voluntary, but you probably already have an idea of what’s not working. This is the clear out, in preparation for Saturn’s entrance intoyour sign (in December 2017).
The Jupiter/Neptune opposition can bring financial assistance, or gift, as limits that you didn’t even know existed are overcome. Emotional/physical intimacy can grow with someone special, as the barriers come tumbling down. However, this energy can also expand debts, or careless moments in a relationship. Use caution when spending, or getting close to someone; make sure you’re fully aware of what you’re getting into, and that you have resources to back yourself up.
Mercury Rx in your opportunity sector can delay or change travel plans, legal matters, education or publishing. Too, you may revisit a past location or opportunity. This energy can see you looking very closely at how beliefs align with reality, or if your big picture goals need an adjustment.
Saturn into your social sector can narrow your options involving friendships/groups/public image, while ensuring that any relationships that develop/continue are the real deal. Some friendships may exit your life permanently, as Saturn only leaves room for the essentials. Too, your public authority/expertise may be in demand, as others see that what you have to offer is of superior quality. This transit could mark the start of a new, more specialized profession, course of education, or more focused connections to the public.
The Jupiter/Neptune opposition can open up relationship potential, whether you are single or involved. A leap of faith is the theme, and this can be the moment when you transcend past relationship habits. You could very well attract someone who comes close to matching your “dream lover.” However, be aware that the activation of Neptune in your sign also makes you vulnerable to illusion. If a relationship is based on energy that undermines you, that will become clear, very quickly. Make sure you don’t project all the good stuff onto a partner, by putting them on a pedestal.
Mercury Rx in your sector of shared resources can signal a relationship or financial overhaul. It may be time to have the deep conversation, or take a close look at financial issues (tax, debts, loans, your partner’s finances) that you’ve been avoiding. Financial documents can be delayed, or may require a second read through.
Saturn into your career sector puts your future goals/ambitions to the test. Have you been excelling at your job? Saturn can bring rewards in the form of a promotion/greater recognition, but there will be increased responsibility to go with it. If you’ve been slacking off, or have been dissatisfied with your job, this transit can push you to make a career change. It’s about focusing on the direction that’s most beneficial for you.
