Monday, September 24 – This is the first week after Fall Equinox. School has started and many projects long sitting on the back burner seem to have gathered momentum. The important event for this week is that Chiron retrogrades back to Pisces on Tuesday, September 25, at 5:09 PM Pacific Time and 8:09 PM Eastern Time. This is important because Chiron entered Aries for a few months in mid-April. Aries being the beginning of the zodiac, this gave us a pre-cycle taste of new ideas, new actions and people standing up for what they believe in. As Chiron returns to Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac, it indicates that there must be some ‘toxic waste management clean-up’ of emotions and issues that arose during the ten-year cycle of Chiron in Pisces. Before we can move into a truly new 51-year Chiron cycle, starting in February of 2019, whatever it is that needs finessing will occur during this retrograde period. Pisces can bring joy, creativity, sorrow, and frustration. It tends to be indecisive unless deeply inspired. When deeply inspired, it moves mountains. It is the sign that rules the health care system, drugs–legal or illegal–and is involved with the recent news concerning the opioid crisis. Medical resolutions and solutions for such diseases as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Epilepsy also fall in the Pisces dominion. Recently, the FDA approved Epidiolex, which is derived from a certain strain of marijuana. Once Chiron re-enters Aries in 2019, we may find more research regarding natural solutions for medical problems.
Sunday, September 30 – As Pluto turns direct at 18º Capricorn 45′, many long-standing unresolved issues have motion forward. Choices are made. Those choices involve risks and those may include either financial or emotional risks. Growth cannot happen unless one can walk through new doors and close old ones.
