Breathe a partial sigh of cosmic relief as our world turns from the eighth to the ninth month of 2014. The Moon is also shifting gears — from intense, passionate, fixed-watery Scorpio to upbeat, adventurous, mutable-fiery Sagittarius (following a void lunar uncertainty zone stretching from 8:41AM to 10:18AM, when the lunar morphing is complete). It has often been stated in this Cosmic Calendar during the last 33 years that the Moon’s movement from Scorpio to Sagittarius is the most dramatic, jarring, and yet soul-searching lunar alchemy during the Moon’s 27.3-day cycle through the zodiac.
From the holistic and organic perspectives, there is no need to rush out of the starting gate with alacrity early today while this lunar metamorphosis is still unfolding. However, once the clock strikes 10:18AM, there is no reason you can’t enjoy fun, games, favorite sports, exercise routines, promoting literary and publishing endeavors, and aiming to hit the bull’s-eye of key, long-term educational goals.
Keeping your mind sharp and focused on solving problems is a subtle and yet supportive, 30-degree rapport between the Sun in Virgo and Pallas in Libra (5:04AM and still active when the Moon changes signs). Later on, celebrate the winged Messenger of the Gods planet Mercury’s entry into airy Libra (10:39PM). Mercury in the seventh zodiacal sign until September 27 — and then again from October 10 to November 8 (due to a Mercury retrograde cycle happening October 4 to 25) — can assist you in creating better harmony, peace, and contentment on the primary partnership horizon.
