September 2010: Planetwatch with Pamela Cucinell

A Planned Party Flows

Mercury is retrograde until September 14, so assume nothing and back up files. Unexpected events on September 1 and 2 derail slipshod work. Enjoy a long contemplation near a body of water on September 3 or 4. Smiles abound on September 5 for creative causes or simple fun. The party continues as you travel home on Labor Day. It pays to prepare on September 7, prioritizing work and health routines.

Another Chance for Perfection

The September 8 New Moon in Virgo urges adjustments to your diet, exercise habits or routine. Choose your goal wisely to support your bigger vision. Legal and partnership discussions are effective on September 9 and 10. On September 11, people meet for transformational reasons, no matter how brief or long. Follow your passion on September 12 when Mercury goes direct.

Weigh Your Options

September 13 offers good results if you are diplomatic. Explore your options on September 14. Prepare to use the “stops and starts” on September 15 to your advantage. Implement ideas and launch new projects on September 16 and 17. On September 18, some people feel bulldozed, while others feel effective.

The Great Wheel Turns into Autumn

Any enterprise begun on September 19 has a strong spiritual component. Map out your plans on September 20 with the ability to bend them. On September 21, talk things out so that you can gain clarity to go forward. September 22 is the Autumnal Equinox, which generates new beginnings through endings. The September 23 Harvest Moon shines on the impetus to create real change. Although there’s an unknown and uncontrollable quality to this energy, remember that attitude is everything. On September 24, the less concerned you are about specifics, the more you can seize opportunities.

Powerful Emotions Create Irrevocable Change

On September 25, know where you’re going (with alternate routes for detours). No one can push you into a fight on September 26 unless you’re willing. Conversations can lead to strong results on September 27. Don’t over-commit on September 28, because of the likelihood of change. On September 29, understand your feelings about a situation completely to increase your effectiveness. September 30 creates an emotional roller coaster, but there is the potential for great understanding and revelation.

August 2010: Planetwatch with Pamela Cucinell

Choices at Crossroads

Projects begun on August 1 work out in ways you can’t imagine. Move with the process rather than against it on August 2. Don’t try to initiate anything important on August 3 or 4. Release disagreements and double-check agreements on August 5. Focus is a challenge on August 6; creativity is stimulated but linear tasks feel limiting. Choices are made but you are not able to act—yet.

A Lion Cub’s Roar

Forget about deadlines on August 7. Finish old business on August 8, especially for your home. Creativity crackles with the Leo New Moon on August 9; dance, capture fireflies or search for shooting stars. Avoid situations where you feel a lack of support on August 10. Begin communications projects on August 11. On August 12, eat simple foods, take a walk in nature and/or indulge in bodywork.

Summer See-Saw

If Friday the 13th limits your freedom, reevaluate the situation. August 14 is for picnics, music in the park and artistic/spiritual endeavors. Do research, initiate an enterprise and/or spend time with someone special on August 15. Don’t let upsets change your game on August 16. Do the most important things first on August 17. Articulate your needs on August 18 because if they can’t get met, at least you know where you stand.

Brakes On: Mercury Retrograde

Drive alert on August 19; people do not pay attention. August 20 is an auspicious day for relationships, even though Mercury goes retrograde. Practice caution around contracts, electronics and communications for a few weeks. You can “mine for gold” on August 21. Connections made August 22 through 26 create dynamic change. On August 23, appreciate love. The Pisces Full Moon occurs on August 24; turn off your head and open your heart.

Psychic Hangover

Tasks that require keen attention will take more time on August 25. On August 26, go back to old clients, check in with dormant prospects or look up old friends. It’s uphill on August 27; just keep aligned with your passion. Although you may not gain ground on August 28, conversations are better than closed doors. On August 29, plan a dinner party or go to one. Smell late-summer flowers, shop (antiques, not electronics), and relish long meals with good conversations on August 30. Non-engagement is more effective than an out-and-out argument on August 31. Savor your last day of August.
