This week’s astrological highlights include Mercury’s entry into Libra on Thursday morning and the Full Moon in Pisces on Saturday. On the face of it, both focus our energies on the importance of relationships. And yet, as I was looking at the energy for each day this week, the idea of work, career, and honing our knowledge, skills and abilities seems to keep popping up. It makes me wonder if ‘relating to others’ is an art form and a talent worth developing and improving. If someone graded me on my relating abilities how would I do? Maybe this is just Venus retrograde talking!
Nevertheless, as we move through this week, there will be a lot of inner and outer focus on our desire to identify what we are good at; finding ways to continue to improve our skills in our chosen fields, and to offer our services for an equitable exchange of money, resources and recognition. If you are struggling to find your niche, or anxious to feel in greater alignment with your purpose, pay attention this week. Intuition is also quite strong and messages are abundant.
Mercury’s transit through the cooperative, social and gregarious sign of Libra should be a memorable one, especially coupled with the on-going retrograde motion of Venus, the ruler of Libra. This is the sign of balance, harmony and justice. Libra is mindful of love and relationships and has a unique talent for listening to and understanding both sides of an issue. Mercury’s transit through Libra takes almost three times as long as its usual jaunt through a sign – more than nine weeks – due to a retrograde motion which begins September 17th. Start paying attention this week, as Mercury will review and revisit the thoughts, activities and ideas of this time period during the upcoming retrograde.
The Full Moon in healing Pisces combines the powerful energies of the Sun and Jupiter in practical Virgo with the Moon and Neptune in compassionate Pisces. Finding a way to integrate the details while holding a vision of the big picture is its gift. At its best, the Full Moon in Pisces teaches us how to bring down to earth our spiritual and transpersonal ideals. It’s not about talking about or meditating on kindness, but BEING kind – as per the famous quote by Gandhi – Being the change we want to see in the world. The trick is to offer ourselves and our resources and gifts with no strings attached; to remember humility; and to balance taking personal responsibility for meeting our own needs with offering to help others meet theirs.
The theme for this week is ‘Aspire to be all that you can be;’ and have confidence your personal interests, preferences, and passions are your individual road map. Enjoy the process – the victories and defeats as well – as all part of the human earth curriculum.
Until next week, let go and wear loose clothes.

MOON in SAGITTARIUS / CAPRICORN
Moon Void of Course 3:04 pm (PDT) – 9:22 pm
The Moon in philosophical Sagittarius is feeling more adventurous than Mercury in conservative Virgo will allow. With the recent influx of Virgo energy (Jupiter and the Sun moved into this earth sign recently), we may be spending more time worrying than usual. Virgo’s penchant for analyzing, judging, and looking at the details is all well and good; however sometimes trying to micromanage every detail in our lives turns out to be more frustrating than effective.
If you find yourself imagining every possible case scenario and your scrutiny leaves you less than happy with the outcomes, it’s probably a message to take a break. We are more likely to feel oppressed or trapped by the fears within, more so than what is actually happening. Let the high spirits of the optimistic Sagittarius Moon help you escape a day mired down with details and minutia.
Daily Muse: Worry is a misuse of the imagination. (Dan Zadra)
MOON in CAPRICORN
The Moon in hard-working Capricorn turns our attention to work, career, projects, and productivity today. Despite our efforts, we might feel a bit conflicted about where we are putting our focus. Have we chosen the right path, the right career, the right job, the right project? Doubts may haunt us; but fortunately, an enlightening connection between the Moon and Neptune mid-day restores our faith and helps us put things in perspective. Repeat after me, ‘I can’t miss my destiny!’
A sobering alliance between the Moon and transformational Pluto this evening helps us put distractions behind and see our paths more clearly. If you are trying to make a difficult decision, especially about anything concerning work or career, this energy will help clarify the issue. Some choices might require a change in direction or a sacrifice. Weigh out your options and you will know which one is in alignment with your goals. Whenever possible, maintain your devotion to long-term goals and don’t let the desire for quick rewards deflect your attention and efforts away from more meaningful objectives that require long-term dedication. Sometimes we don’t have a choice; but when we do, staying the course is probably in our best interest.
Daily Muse: Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential. (Winston Churchill)

MOON in CAPRICORN
Taking pride in a job well done is the emotional mandate for today. The desire to be productive and contribute to the overall good of our family, community, and world is the mission. The Moon in responsible and disciplined Capricorn gets the ball rolling and is reinforced in mid-morning when Mercury aligns with Capricorn’s planetary ruler, Saturn. It’s easy to find the workable solutions, discipline, and perseverance when these two planets get together.
In the middle of the afternoon the desire to participate in meaningful work and make a contribution is in full swing as the Sun meets up with Jupiter in the pragmatic and service-oriented sign of Virgo. We are very mindful today of the work we do and its meaning in the overall context of our lives and in the lives of others. If you are not satisfied with your career or occupation, spend time today considering what would better suit your talents, abilities and preferences.
Today is a great day for working collaboratively with others. This includes activities you may do on the job, but can also consist of your participation in a volunteer position, or working with a charitable or community organization. Today we want to feel like our lives and contributions matter in the big scheme of things.
Daily Muse: We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

MOON in CAPRICORN / AQUARIUS
Moon Void of Course 12:20 am (PDT) – 1:03 am
Mercury enters Libra 8:45 am (PDT)
In early morning the Moon leaves the no-nonsense earth of Capricorn for the intellectual air of Aquarius. Although Aquarian Moons can sometimes be rebellious and stubborn – even know-it-alls, (I’m allowed to say this since I have one!) today’s energy is much more laid back and accommodating. We have a sense we will catch more flies with honey, and maybe a sense of humor, than with vinegar and a hard edge.
What this Moon seems to sense is Mercury’s move to fellow air sign Libra this morning. This is the sign of balance, harmony and justice. Ruled by Venus, Libra is mindful of love and relationships and has a unique talent for listening to and understanding both sides of an issue. Mercury’s transit through Libra takes almost three times as long as it’s usual jaunt through a sign – more than nine weeks – due to a retrograde motion which begins September 17th. Start paying attention today and this week, as Mercury will review and revisit the thoughts, activities and ideas of this time period during the retrograde.
Although the retrograde is weeks away, today’s energy seems to foreshadow its coming with an encouragement to slow down and gain a new perspective. We benefit greatly when we are willing to allow our imaginations to move ahead of logic and consider solutions and alternatives that are not typical. Forward-thinking ideas will capture our attention. Shake up your routine today and don’t expect the usual way of doing things to be the most effective. Be prepared for a break through big or small.
Daily Muse: Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there someday.
MOON in AQUARIUS
Intuition is free flowing today and messages and omens are plentiful. We all tap into the universal divinity in different ways. Whether you consider it connecting with angels, fairies, nature spirits, animals, crystals, ascended masters, spiritual icons, your great grandmother on the other side, your higher self or your right mind, the important thing is to connect. The Moon in Aquarius is feeling particularly visionary as it aligns with Aquarius’ planetary ruler Uranus. In another part of the cosmos, the Sun also connects with Uranus but in a disjointed way.
Collectively the energy today encourages us to express our individuality while accepting and allowing for the equal expression of everyone else. Moving beyond accepted defenses and prejudices is possible when we ‘rise above the battleground’, as A Course In Miracles suggests. Like viewing the earth from an airplane, we are able to move beyond artificial boundaries that keep us feeling separated and alone. Dare to dream of a way of seeing and feeling that embraces everyone as an interesting and valuable part of your life.
Daily Muse: We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses. (Abraham Lincoln)
Today on A Course In Miracles with C. A. Brooks we’ll continue to explore the possibilities of life in our right minds. We will look at ‘What is Salvation?’ and Workbook Lessons 231 – 240. Please join us at 8am Pacific – 11 Eastern on 12Radio.com. Private Group on Facebook
MOON in AQUARIUS / PISCES
Moon Void of Course 12:03 am (PDT) – 1:51 am
Full Moon 6 Pisces 11:35 am (PDT)
Today’s Full Moon in sensitive and intuitive Pisces is preceded by a rather sobering inelegant mis-alignment between Mars, the planet of action, in willful Leo, and Pluto, the transformer, in hard-nosed Capricorn. This energy can be uncompromising honesty. Mars in Leo is focused on pleasing self and motivated by gaining recognition and approval from others. Selflessness and sensitivity to others is not on his agenda, unless of course doing so will make us look good in the eyes of others.
Pluto in Capricorn moves in like an inflexible mandate causing us to question our motives. Because the Mars Pluto interaction can be abrupt and even tactless, we are tempted to dismiss it and try to move beyond any discomfort quickly. Resist the urge to do so. An honest examination of our motives and actions may reveal a better way of doing things. We don’t necessarily need to change our behavior; being aware of what we are doing and ‘why’ is the directive that leads to greater personal awareness and ultimately to more success and satisfaction.
The Full Moon in healing Pisces helps rescue the day, combining the powerful energies of the Sun and Jupiter in practical Virgo with the Moon and Neptune in compassionate Pisces. Finding a way to integrate the details while holding a vision of the big picture is its gift. At its best, the Full Moon in Pisces teaches us how to bring down to earth our spiritual and transpersonal ideals. It’s not about talking about or meditating on kindness, but BEING kind – as per the famous quote by Gandhi – Being the change we want to see in the world. The trick is to offer ourselves and our resources and gifts with no strings attached; to remember humility; and to balance taking personal responsibility for meeting our own needs with offering to help others meet theirs.
Daily Muse: As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world – that is the myth of the atomic age – as in being able to remake ourselves. (Mahatma Gandhi)
MOON in PISCES
Moon Void of Course 11:53 pm (PDT) – 1:33 am Monday morning
Under the influence of the psychic Pisces Moon, today we are more in touch than usual with our inner guidance. The influence of the Full Moon yesterday piques our interest in finding ways to serve the world by highlighting our personal interests and passions. You don’t have to look far to find your purpose or mission. What captures your attention and holds it over time? When we are following our bliss, it’s easy to find the time, motivation and energy to become a master in our chosen field. If you feel desires bubbling up from inside or messages seem to reappear and capture your attention, listen!
The energy of this day is also perfect for bringing hurtful memories to a peaceful conclusion through forgiveness. Spiritual, meditative, creative and imaginative endeavors are all favored today.
As the ruler of photography and movies, Pisces Moons are the perfect time to find education, inspiration and entertainment through movies. Pop some corn and pull up a comfy chair.
Daily Muse: Sometimes people ask me if I have forgiven my parents. I’m always puzzled by this question. I want to ask these people, ‘Forgive them for what?’ I grew up to be a terrific person! (Machaelle Small Wright)

Last month, as the sun was entering Leo, an international furor erupted over the illegal killing of Cecil the lion. Although the crime was committed earlier, it became a wave of anger just as the sun was making it’s change into the leonine sign.
This month, the focus has shifted and one of the biggest stories has to do with the prosecution of predators performing sexual acts with underage children. This, as the sun enters Virgo and it makes total sense.
You'd think that after all these years, I wouldn't be surprised by the stunning occurrences that coincide with the movement of the seasons and astrological signs. Yet, from time to time, I'm startled by the synchronicity of it all and reminded of the unseen forces of nature that bring the ebb and flow of the natural landscape into the human experience.
Virgo symbolism is an interesting one. The constellation Virgo is one of the largest in the sky and includes the beautiful star, Spica. Spica is a stalk of grain, the gift of our Earth. It’s said that the constellation represents an Earth goddess, offering a promise of renewed fertility as the sun passes through it, triggering the ripening and falling of seeds, also reminding us to take only what we need and to leave the rest.
It's much more than that. Although Virgo certainly represents Demeter and Ceres, she also represents Astraea and other warrior goddesses who maintain a vigil over all of us, their beloved children.
The fact that most of these warrior goddesses were considered to be virgins make sense. Since they bore no children of their own and had no favorites, they devoted their energies to all their charges and protected them with a ferocity seen often within the animal kingdom.
These goddesses continued the cycle of the life by triggering Autumn's bounty, thus helping maintain prosperity for the next year’s cycle.
The Virgin of Virgo is often depicted holding a sickle, as well as grain, to bring in the harvest. A sickle is also used to cut out diseased plants and put them aside, so that they don't infect the rest of the crop. Watch the news and see this play out.
Whatever energy it is, call it what you will, that watches over us and engages in the ancient dance of the planets, it eventually reveals all and often does so in ways that remind us to pay attention to the stars and the paradigms that have existed since the beginning of history.
Other myths associated with Virgo are those of Persephone and Eurydice, both virgins. Both are taken to the underworld before their time and both have prospective rescuers who brave the darkness and return with limited success, or none at all. Such is the nature of our own innocence and the desires that can lead us to great peril.
Watch the news for these stories and don’t be surprised by what you discover.
Even though I believe in a lot, I also try to keep an objective mind and down to earth. Once we lose our ability for critical thinking, we risk everything we hold dear.
Still, when the news dishes up the right story at the exact right time, it gives me a thrill. It fills me with a sense of wonder and reminds me why I do what I do and why I love it so fervently.
Let's all give gratitude to the eternal goddess, whomever she may be, as she watches over us and protects as many of us as we’ll allow. My hope is that her influence will spread and stay the ruthless hand of barbarism, so prevalent all over the world. We can certainly hope.
Until next week, I wish you all peace and love.
Remember, I'm an advisor at 12listen.com and would love to be of service.

I have been thinking a lot about happiness lately. I believe that happiness is a choice that is not related to the situations, circumstances and experiences in your life. You can choose to be happy at any point in your life regardless of what is happening around you. I have put together a list of tips to help you cultivate “Happiness Thinking.”
1. Don’t play the “one up” game with other people. When people tell you of their woes stop yourself from “one upping” them with “You think that’s bad, listen to this….” When you do this you tell yourself that having it worse than someone else is a badge of honor. This gets all twisted up with pride and ego and before you know it you can’t wait to tell people all the bad things that happened. Instead practice gratitude by thinking "I am so grateful for_____" when someone shares something negative that has happened to them. This shifts your thinking to remind to be grateful for everything in your life.
2. Look for meaning in everything. Every experience can teach you something and bring something positive into your life. While nursing my Dad through his terminal illness I was so grateful for all the little moments we had. In the last few months of his life I spent more one on one time with him than I ever had. His illness actually gave us more time together and strengthened our relationship.
3. Trust the process. Things take time to work out and sometimes everything has to fall apart so that you re-build your life in a better way. Shift your perspective when things start to go wrong and ask yourself, what am I making room for by letting go of some things in my life?
4 .Choose positive people to be around. We tend to sync up with the people we are with the most. If you spend a lot of time with people who think and communicate negatively you will find that you do the same.
5. Cultivate your spiritual practice. Feeling connected to something has a huge impact on your happiness. It doesn’t matter what your beliefs are, just cultivate them and actively practice what you believe.
6. Get plenty of exercise and time outside. Your body needs movement and sunshine to function properly.
7. Stubbornly choose to be optimistic. Expect the best in people, most of the time you will get it. I don’t mean to say that you will never be disappointed but most of the time you will be pleasantly surprised. Look for the good in every person and situation. It’s easy to find the bad, actively seek the good qualities, positive outcomes and unexpected lessons.
8. Think of yourself as happy now. Happiness isn’t something that you have to work to achieve. There is no right set of circumstances that magically create happiness in your life. Choose happiness now, right where you are, with exactly what you have. This way your happiness is not contingent on getting, doing, or having anything.
9. When you feel sad (mad, angry, hurt) be sad. The moment will pass and you can return to your normal place of happy. Emotions are meant to be expressed, not stored. Happy people feel sad sometimes, but it isn’t permanent. It’s not like you will get stuck there if you allow yourself to feel sad. Emotions are energy that need to be expended, let them burn off so you can move forward.
10. Get help if you feel sad all the time in spite of your efforts to feel happy. Depression is a very real problem that can be treated in many ways. If you do get stuck there, you will need help to get out. Reach out and do something good for yourself so that you can return to your state of general happiness.

Oliver, what can I do to bring more clarity to my life?
At times when life seems muddy, not clear I should say, but where it feels as if dark clouds have descended upon us that a sense of the unknown is at play, light really is an option. Though it may feel as if out of nowhere, if we give ourselves the chance to focus on it we may actually experience something that brings the sparks of light into our immediate awareness. There is without any doubt a choice at hand and as you pay focus to clarity, clarity you'll find.
“My immediate feeling of the connectedness to eternal Spirit is real, I am It and It is me. Creating my Truth from this moment on is my reality and I know it is so. Believing I am the true creator of my life I see my life unfold with ease, joy and grace. With Spirit being me I know it is so and I know it is and so it is.”
