Today I'll be talking about the Full Moon in Pisces as Mercury prepares to retrograde, as well as some of the other transits we can expect over the coming days.
Hey everyone, this is Acyuta-bhava from Nightlight Astrology. Happy Monday everybody. Today we are going to talk about the wild astrology that is the last days of September here we have a full moon today, we've got Venus going into an opposition with Uranus, Mercury squaring Pluto as it prepares to station and retrograde and go back through square to Pluto. So lots to talk about. I'm going to be breaking this down, probably pretty much every day. This week, we're going to be looking at this. So let's go ahead and put the real time clock up. We're going to start today by outlining some of the major themes that we should expect from this week, as well as from this full moon. So here we go. And what I want to highlight is this is September 20. In the evening time, eastern time, you're going to see the full moon rising as the sunsets and it's a full moon in Pisces. The full moon always is rising when the sun sets, because they're exactly opposite to one another. So you can see that the full moon is in Pisces. And this concludes our last big series of events from the Neptune opposition's. The sun has already passed through the opposition to Neptune. But we're going to get one more repeat of this earth and water opposition, which is in the air today. And really starting to resolve itself in the next couple of days. As we pass through the gateway of the equinox, and the sun passes into the sign of Libra, then we're really getting out of the earth water oppositional tension that is defined much of the last month. So we'll talk a little bit more about the full moon before we end today. But what I really want to highlight, probably more important than the full moon, is here's Mercury heading into a square with Pluto Mercury in Libra squaring Pluto and Capricorn. Now let's watch when that's going to come through. So if I advance this, by a day, you'll see Mercury entering the 24th degree of Libra by tomorrow, September 21. And then it moves through the square by Wednesday, September 22. But it's really slow. It's still there in the square by the third Thursday, and then Friday. And then Saturday, it's still hanging out within a degree. And then it's stationing on Sunday. And then at that point, it's going to be stationing and turning retrograde by Monday the 27th. And you can really feel the turn retrograde from usually a full day or so let's just say Monday the 27th to September 28. Mercury's turning retrograde.
Now this whole time it's hanging out in a very tight square with Pluto, as it does, so it's also going to go backward. And it's going to move backward through the square to Pluto, which completely finalises by next Friday, October 1. Right and then you've got around that time, Mercury all the way through Saturday, October 2 will still be hanging out within about a degree. So this is essentially a very unusual square between Mercury and Pluto because you're never going to see a square between Mercury and Pluto that lasts two whole weeks essentially. And the reason for that is that it's really rare for mercury to sit down to slow down station and turn retrograde right around that degree that particular degree. And you know, this is also happening as Pluto is itself preparing to station. So you can see that by Tuesday, October 5. Pluto is stationing. So you have Mercury and Pluto both sitting down in the sky and just being like, Hey, you want to have a difficult conversation for like two to three weeks? Yeah, okay, let's do it. So, there it is. Now this is amplified right now by another transit that's happening, which is in many ways, right in line with the same kinds of symbolism. We'll break that down in a second. But here's Mercury moving through the square with Pluto this week, as venus in Scorpio is also moving through an opposition with Uranus in Taurus.
So this is by September 23, Thursday of this week into Friday. What else is happening on Thursday into Friday? Mercury square to Pluto. So you're going to see mercury in Libra which is Venus's sign squaring Pluto, as Venus also opposes Uranus and that is the astrology of this week that has most people, anyone who follows the transits, you know that, you know, even again, I've said this a few times this year, at the very beginning of the year what I do my forecast for the whole year, when I circle on my calendar, what do I think the biggest trends to the year are? The end of September has been there for me since the beginning because of this dynamic in particular.
So what's the obvious like, what's the low hanging fruit here? Well, the first one is going to be broken agreements. That's like so basic of broken agreements, or rapidly changing circumstances in relationships or business negotiations. The reason for that is that Mercury, squaring Pluto, Mercury's in a very diplomatic sign that's looking for agreement. Mercury looks for agreement and harmony when it's in Libra. So it's nice to have Mercury in a really diplomatic position. But when it hits Pluto, it's possible that diplomacy is breaking down, or that people are using different kinds of legal manoeuvres to make something look fair, but it's actually a power play, some manipulation of law and fairness, tactics that are meant to actually get you ahead rather than actually looking for seeking harmony or agreement. You have to be really careful of a lot of like underhanded manipulative tactics around communication relationships of any kind, again, whether it's in the workplace, or you know, your private life with friends or family or loved one. So that's one thing to be aware of. It's just that Mercury, when it hits Pluto in Capricorn can get a little ruthless, even though it might still have the facade or the appearance of diplomacy or harmony around it. So that's something to just be careful of. On the other hand, sometimes negotiations are tough or difficult, then you have to, you have to be willing to hold people accountable or speak truth to power as they say, you have to be willing to fight but fight fairly and wisely for something that you believe is just. On the other hand, what makes this even more challenging, this dynamic is around for a couple of weeks, that makes it really challenging. So this is potential for a prolonged or delayed kind of conflict or halting of communication or something like that. Then we also have Venus moving into an opposition with Uranus. Now, when venus moves into an opposition with Uranus, the idea of unexpected disruptions, breakdowns, sudden, rapid changes in relationships, or in any situation, where the goal is to have a desirable peaceful, beautiful, lovely, agreeable experience or outcome. That's going to happen when Venus hits the opposition to Uranus. It's sort of like Well, let's give some best case scenarios if you're if you're in a committed relationship Venus opposes Uranus, you might get in a in a fight about your your sex life, and then followed by that, you might have to, you might have some kind of breakthrough, you know, maybe there's, maybe, maybe you end up having an erotic breakthrough in your relationship.
On the other hand, maybe you know, with Venus opposite Uranus, you break up. Maybe Venus opposite Uranus, you suddenly storm out of your office and give the middle finger to your boss, I mean, you have to be really careful. Venus is already in Scorpio, which is the sign of the god of war. And then Venus is going to oppose Uranus, which is this very destabilising revolutionary God that likes that, you know, it likes independence, it likes freedom, it likes revolution, it likes to quickly change things, it doesn't have a lot of patience if progress isn't being made. And so, you know, this is a revolutionary week, where it's potential to burn bridges, potential in trying to make the piece that you suddenly have to make rapid are unexpected changes. You could also find yourself taken advantage of or, you know, maybe trying to bend or twist rules in a way that isn't really good or healthy. So, there's many sides to this potential combination. Another one, for example, would be the need for greater freedom and independence within some kind of relationship. For example, you go to your boss and say, I'd like more freedom, you know, within my role in your relationship, maybe you're dealing with a partner who's very jealous and you say, look, I need you to give me more space or trust, but it's a big conversation.
You could also see people making like political state statements or manoeuvres or trying to manipulate or coerce other people. Politics leaves a lot of people in the dust. So you think about people becoming a scapegoat or someone you know, someone being eliminated from a job or a title due to something that's really unfair, someone being almost like almost becoming like a victim of some larger force. And the way that I'm imagining it anyways, it's like someone could fire you, because of some, you know, silly thing. But really, they're, they're trying to get rid of you because of something else that they don't like, that they couldn't really fire you over. Okay, that happens a lot. You always see movies like this, you know, it's like, oh, well, we have to keep this person on the staff. But I don't like that they're a woman or something, you know, some prejudice. So I found some loophole where I can get rid of them. You know, be careful of stuff like that, not that you would do something that ruthless, but just bending or twisting rules in order to get something that you want really comes to mind in the next two weeks.
Now, the other thing here, too, to remember, is that Venus opposite Uranus can also express itself in terms of like, very unusual displays of creativity, art, sex, you know, anything that expresses itself in terms of innovation around Venusian things, so any kind of art, or sexuality that is, you know, maybe unusual or strange or outside of the box in some way, whatever that means. That would not be surprising for Venus, opposite Uranus. But don't be surprised if you if you if your patience runs out with with someone or something, some situation and you're trying to figure out what's the best diplomatic way of getting what I want, or trying to work with someone who is, you know, not reliable or or that there's some kind of emerging crisis and relationships, and be patient because Venus opposite Uranus, through the end of this week will not want to be patient. Maybe patience isn't always the best thing. Maybe sometimes rapid changes for the sake of progress do have to happen. But remember that after Venus goes through the opposition to Uranus, Venus is still debilitated. Mars is still debilitated there in each other signs, and Mercury is still going to be square to Pluto for another week. So if you try to force a change really rapidly and suddenly this week, don't think it's going to work. Or at the very least, if it's something that's done out of impatience, and sort of, like, you know, trying to push something too quickly. Even if you're in the right, just remember, how do you kind of how do you lead the bolt of water? You know, if you pull, it sits down, you know, it's like gently bringing something along might be part of the strategy. There's sometimes things come in bursts. And that's just that you can't help it. But bringing along things at a gentle easy pace is probably advisable considering we've got two weeks of Mercury negotiating with Pluto. As it's turning retrograde, and plans often break down or plans often change as a result.
So anyway, fun stuff ahead, it will be interesting to unpack. We're going to continue unpacking this as the week goes on. A few things about the full moon before we close remember the full moon this evening is in the sign of Pisces, and it's just passing through conjunction with Neptune. So if you one of the things that I think this full moon is bring to a head is some feeling of potential wishy washy wishy washy situation. I want practical results, says the Virgo sun and I want to schedule and I want to order things that are organised and delivered and practical and productive. And you know, the moon in Pisces and a number of planets in Pisces have been potentially at worst like you know, skirting responsibility and just sort of off in La La Land. That would be like worst case scenario, where on the other hand, helping the demands of the Virgo in practicality to find a fluid way of delivering results or find a more graceful or easy or forgiving, accepting adaptable way of doing things. So just think of Earth and water playing back and forth with each other and they've been doing it for like a month now and things are finally coming to a head which probably means that there's one one last deluge that the Virgoan sun is going to have to deal with. And it's just just think If you think very practically for say back to late August, through right now late September, and you look at in what areas have I been, you know, expanding my sense of vision or inspiration? Or how am I being asked to see the bigger picture somewhere in my life? rather than getting lost in the details? And then the other hand, where have things needed to become more practical, more organised? How have I been improving on and becoming more productive in ways that really matter and what tends to get me distracted or what have the distractions been? That kind of back and forth between Virgo and Pisces good thing to meditate on right now is the full moon is coming through. So you know, just an earth water oppositional tension, which can also be practicality versus emotional intelligence, you know, the, the earth water dichotomy will often pit almost like a rational, productive quality against a graceful intuitive quality, are you seeking a synthesis between the two. So at any rate, we will be back together pretty much every day this week, breaking down this, these transits because they're so big. So I think we'll probably do some deeper, you know, some deeper meditations on some of these. We'll also break some of the archetypal combinations down in greater detail. So stay tuned for that this week.
