All times listed are Pacific Daylight Time. (For Eastern Time, add 3 hours; For Greenwich Mean Time, add 7 hours.)

MON: Sun trine Ceres
TUE: Mercury quincunx Neptune
WED: Mars quincunx Uranus, New Moon 4:05 a.m. PDT, Venus semisquare Mars, Pluto stations direct 11:28 a.m. PDT, Sun quincunx Uranus
THU: Venus enters Sagittarius, Sun conjunct Mars
FRI: Pluto square Eris
SAT: Mercury semisquare Venus, Sun conjunct Mercury, Venus conjunct South Node, Mercury conjunct Mars
SUN: Saturn stations direct 7:17 p.m. PDT

WE HAVE REACHED a major shift point. There is an incredible lineup of powerful planetary events on the agenda this week. Highlights include an invigorating and impetuous New Moon, two planets – transformational Pluto and serious Saturn – at heightened effect due to turning direct, and the fifth and final Pluto-Eris square.

At first, it may be difficult to see how we are going to navigate this very challenging section of the "final ascent" of 2021. The sides of the canyon are steep and the trail appears perilous. And yet throughout, if we shift our gaze, we notice that a light shines from above, illuminating the shadows and our path forward.

OUR NEW LUNAR CYCLE begins on Wednesday, October 6, at 4:05 a.m. PDT, when the Sun and Moon align at 13°24´ Libra.

This proximity of other planets – and Mars, especially – affects how we interpret the effects of this lunation, and how we understand the unfolding of the next few weeks.

By nature, Libra is diplomatic, eager to build relationship, and motivated by a need for harmony. But as the sign of The Scales, it is also strongly invested in relationship equality and in all parties being treated fairly. Some of the areas within Libra's domain are the law and litigation, as ideally these forms are meant to ensure fairness and order.

WITH WARRIOR MARS conjunct this week's New Moon, the more assertive side of Libra is engaged, the part that fights for a just cause and for equal rights under the law. This means we are likely to see...
