Current Configurations

by Henry Seltzer


September 4th Full Moon Full Moon Chart
This Full Moon, across the VirgoPisces axis and 12 or so degrees away from the forming SaturnUranus opposition represents the flowering of the impulse from the New Moon of August 20th, which was all about the idealism and the potential pain as well as the joy of living large. Currently in the present month, with so much Saturn in the picture we are being brought down to the reality of the various situations that we find ourselves in, and this Full Moon configuration reflects that in spades. Still, with Jupiter, Neptune and Uranus still in the picture, there is plenty of optimism and the wild impulse of delight to also enjoy, and to deal with.

September 6th Mercury retrograde Mercury SR
Just two days after the Full Moon, Mercury retrogrades in early Libra, square Mars, making for a retrograde event that is stronger than usual. Mercury will re-enter Virgo just prior to the mid-month New Moon, when it will also square Pluto in Capricorn, and conjunct Saturn, finally straightening out on the 29th. Mercury escapes its retrograde shadow on October 13th. With so much Saturn in the picture, this Mercury retrograde will likely be especially obvious, with missed connections and mechanical and communication breakdowns extremely evident. This is a great time for reflection on where your life is leading you.

September 11th Last Quarter Moon Last Quarter Moon Chart
This Quarter Moon, traditionally described as a "crisis in consciousness," is a time of increased awareness brought on by a further unfolding of the dominant polarity of this month, Saturn opposite Uranus. Do we go or do we stay the course? Perhaps a little of both. Jupiter and Venus in the picture of this otherwise quite tense configuration give us optimism. Pluto also stations this day, turning to direct motion and reminding us of the fundamental transformation that is ongoing all this year and next, and that will affect the very structure of our lives. At least on the collective level, this is basically a very good thing as we begin to prune the rose bush that has been growing in some problematic directions for far too long.

September 18th New Moon New Moon Chart
This New Moon in Virgo is extremely powerful, especially in the context of the Mercury retrograde period. This is because the New Moon conjuncts Saturn almost exactly, while Saturn is still in close contact with Uranus by means of their nearly exact opposition, bringing in the antithetical archetypes into contrast of conservatism versus freedom from prior conditioning. One idea (Saturn) is simply to stay the course and work within the existing paradigm, while the other (Uranus) is to move forward bravely into the unknown. Neptune in a similar degree of Aquarius is also in the picture, softening and idealizing the impact. Nonetheless, the contrast between these powerful archetypes is stark and uncompromising, so that integration is the challenge. Somehow the middle way must be found.

September 25th First Quarter Moon First Quarter Moon Chart
This phase is traditionally described as a "crisis in action," and represents a time when the impulse from the New Moon must be rectified with the realities of the situation as it is actually encountered. This is a difficult time, since the working out of the contrasting energies of Saturn and Uranus is problematic to begin with. Pluto, now direct, is doing its transformation and its mischief in the early degrees of Capricorn, meaning that the very structure of our lives that we rely on is irrevocably changing. Mercury remains in retrograde, making it even harder to see clearly through to the resolution that we so desperately seek. All is not lost however; reliance on the power of Spirit has never been higher, or more necessary.
