Or rate it five stars! Your support helps increase the visibility of the show in the various podcatchers! Thank you for listening, friends!   01:15 – Join Celeste for a 2023 Predictions Panel with Tiffany Harelik and Sarah L'Hrar! The investment is $33, and the class is on December 21, 2022, at 12 pm PT. See you there!   01:51 – This week's theme is: Foggy Bottoms. Let's kick it off with how astrology is showing up in the news: Mars is retrograde (Rx) in Gemini and still in square to Neptune, and we've seen transportation accidents, the Twitter fiasco, and other events unfolding, such as the horrific murders of several college students in separate events. Elizabeth Holmes (of Theranos) was sentenced, and basketball player Brittney Griner received harsh punishment in Russia. Also, Sam Bankman-Fried (Saturn return) hit the news with the collapse of his cryptocurrency exchange, FTX.   10:13 – This week's three big things: First, on Wednesday, there is a First Quarter Moon at 8 Pisces. Mars Rx is trine Saturn on this day, bringing up themes of responsibility and determination; be aware that sneaky actions may bring getting caught! Mars Rx is also opposite Venus and Mercury in Sagittarius, which can be good for creativity in writing or art, and it's excellent for enjoying or playing music.   12:42 – Second, the royal fixed star Antares is highlighted this week. It's in the Scorpio constellation but located at 9 Sagittarius in Western astrology. It's associated with obsessive passion and is called "the watcher of the west." It can bring remarkable success but one that can cause someone's undoing, too. It's known as a rival to Mars. Take extra care with fire this week. It also can bring success in battles – will we see any advancements regarding Ukraine?   15:10 – Third, Neptune stations direct at 22 Pisces! Venus will also be approaching a square to Neptune, which is a rose-colored glasses aspect. The mutable signs will likely be most affected. If you feel tired or aimless, take care of yourself. Check-in on those you love who are feeling the weight of the world. We often feel this energy five days before and after the actual day Neptune stations, so rest, nurture, and be well. Neptune rules fog, and this is like Vaseline on a mirror. Remember: Things may not be as they appear.   17:17 – On Sunday, the theme is CAUSTIC. Sharp words can leave a burn. Speak kindly to those you love. The Moon enters Aquarius at 2:05 pm PT.   18:33 – On Monday, the word of the day is CONSEQUENCES. Keep your hands out of the cookie jar; Mommy has eyes in the back of her head.   20:03 – Tuesday's focus is ARGUMENTS. Choose your battles wisely. Have facts to back up your assertions. The Moon enters Pisces at 4:15 pm PT.   21:38 – On Wednesday, the word is DISHARMONY. Healthy conflict can help us grow. The first quarter Moon is at 8 Pisces at 6:36 am PT.   23:04 – On Thursday, the theme is FLAKY. People may impulsively make commitments that they do not plan to or are unable to keep. The Moon enters Aries at 8:40 pm PT   24:27 – On Friday, the emphasis is LIGHTHEARTED. It is Friday, have some fun but avoid overindulgence.      24:49 – On Saturday, the word is DAZED. Chill out and listen to music.   25:43 – Thanks for listening to Celestial Insights!

It's on Sunday, Nov. 20th at 2 pm PT – the day this episode drops. You'll have the chance to get Celeste's "hot takes" reading on your natal chart, too!   01:11 – We've made it past the eclipses (whew!), where lots of folks saw changes in relationships – some unexpected, perhaps. Celeste reviews some of the news stories since eclipse season began and correlates them to the planetary action: the attack on Nancy Pelosi's husband; the Twitter fiasco; the US election results and lack of a "red wave"; and Donald Trump's reputation following the US election.   08:38 –This week's theme is: Return to Joy! This week's three big things: First, asteroid Vesta enters Pisces. Vesta is related to the home and hearth. When transits happen to your natal Vesta, it can often be related to your home or your sister. Also, if Vesta is strongly placed, it can be related to devotion and/or to a life of service.   11:46 – Second, Sagittarius season begins on Tuesday! Jupiter rules this fire sign and is currently transiting Pisces, one of its homes. Hopefully, we'll be feeling more joy and optimism. Do you notice a lightening of your emotions this week? Sagittarius's energy is lighter than intense, deep Scorpio.   12:33 – Third, we have a beautiful New Moon in Sagittarius on Wednesday at 1 degree Sagittarius. This New Moon is conjunct fixed star Toliman, the teacher. Venus and Mercury are conjunct in this sign too. Take time to celebrate with friends and family. Time to get back into the joy of life, woo hoo!   14:09 – On Sunday, the theme is OPTIMISM. Consider the glass half full. The balsamic moon phase begins at 13 Libra at 3:07 am PT. Vesta enters Pisces at 1:17 pm PT.   15:33 – On Monday, the word of the day is COMRADERIE. It's a great day for a meeting where you will focus on future collaborations. The Moon enters Scorpio at 9:15 am PT.   16:38 – Tuesday's focus is ABUNDANCE. Share your wealth with those less fortunate. Consider a charitable donation. The Sun enters Sagittarius at 12:20 am PT.   17:40 – On Wednesday, the word is MAGNIFY. Dig into the details of important projects or contracts. Read the fine print. Jupiter stations direct 28 Pisces at 3:02 pm PT. The Moon enters Sagittarius at 12:15 pm PT. The New Moon is at 1 Sagittarius at 2:57 pm.   19:43 – On Thursday, the theme is GRATITUDE.

The Crescent Moon begins at 19 Capricorn at 9:40 pm PT.   22:41 – Thanks for listening to Celestial Insights!

Make sure to grab the wonderful digital astrology calendar by Wise Skies Collective! You can get $15 off with the code CELESTE15, bringing the investment down to only $22.   02:20 – This week's theme is: Visualizing the Dream! Eclipse season brings awakening and changes, and now it's time to move forward. This week is great for visualizing, but take is slowly, as Mars is still retrograde (Rx).   04:02 – This week's three big things: First, the Sun in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces, which dissolves, sensitizes, and gives the desire to go to a higher spiritual plane. Venus and Mercury in Scorpio also trine Jupiter in Pisces, highlighting the themes of generosity, trust, luck, forgiveness, or legal matters. How will you spotlight the dream? Find the words and journal. It's a good time for planning but consider pausing on taking action until Mars is direct in mid-January. Also, hold off on making impulsive purchases! (To check out the Bernadette Brady book Celeste mentions, visit her Amazon storefront.)   00:22 – Second, Mars Rx in Gemini squares Neptune Rx in Pisces for the second time. The first square was on October 11. What connects from that time? Deception and misunderstandings may be afoot. Make sure to read the fine print, literally and metaphorically. Celeste also connects the transit to Elon Musk's Twitter purchase, using this transit as an example.   13:32 – Third, the Last Quarter Moon at 24 Leo is on Wednesday. It is the psychological integration phase. This phase began on October 25 with the Scorpio Solar Eclipse. Also, think back to August 18, 2020, when the Lunar Phase Family began. What thread runs through this story for you? The story is wrapping up.   15:32 – On Sunday, the theme is MUSIC. Listen to the music in your heart.   17:56 – On Monday, the word of the day is SENSITIVE. Give yourself and others grace. The Moon enters Leo at 4:47 am PT.   19:01 – Tuesday's focus is DELIGHTFUL. Enjoy some simple pleasures. Venus enters Sagittarius at 10:08 pm PT.   20:06 – On Wednesday, the word is VISIONQUEST. Give your mind time to wander, ponder and explore. The Last Quarter Moon phase at 24 Leo begins at 5:26 am PT. The Moon enters Virgo at 5:03 pm PT.   21:11 – On Thursday, the theme is TRICKSTER. Don't believe everything you think. Mercury enters Sagittarius at 12:41 am PT.   22:16 – On Friday, the emphasis is COMBUSTIBLE. It’s a tinderbox. Have your fire extinguisher handy.   23:01 – On Saturday, the word is CONFABULATION. Avoid the temptation to convince yourself that a fantasy is reality. The Moon enters Libra at 2:57 am PT.   24:17 – Reserve your seat for the Sagittarius New Moon Intention Setting Workshop, and thanks for listening to Celestial Insights!

We have a surprising Lunar Eclipse in Taurus coming up on Tuesday! What will it bring us? Celeste also shares some thoughts on current news and how it fits from an astrological perspective.   05:31 – Celeste's thoughts on Mars retrograde (Rx) in Gemini during this eclipse season. Mars is also in a square to Neptune in Pisces and is quincunx Pluto in Capricorn. Be sure to grab your eclipse season video series to help you navigate these waters!   07:12 – This week's three big things: First, yesterday, Venus opposed Uranus in Taurus. And today, Venus in Scorpio squares Saturn in Aquarius. Relationships are under pressure! Did someone do something surprising? Relationships have a "big beginnings and big endings" flavor. Folks most affected will have planets in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.   09:38 – Second, the intense Taurus Lunar Eclipse on Tuesday will activate the Saturn-Uranus square. The Moon is conjunct Uranus during this eclipse, which can feel chaotic. Celeste ponders how the astrology will show up in the US mid-term elections. Vote! If you haven't been able to vote early, try to get to the polls early in the day on Election Day! Also, the Sun is parallel fixed star Sirius, the shining one/ scorcher. Mars is parallel fixed star Alcyone. Tune in to learn more.   15:03 – Third, Mercury will go Cazimi! This means that Mercury joins up with the Sun in Scorpio, in the heart of the Sun! Mercury and the Sun will then oppose Uranus (shocks and awe) and square Saturn (consequences or rewards for behavior).   16:45 – On Sunday, the theme is EGOTISM. Ego-based actions can lead to regrets. The Moon enters Taurus at 9:14 pm PT.   18:36 – On Monday, the word of the day is ROOTED. Drop an imaginary anchor to help yourself ground.   19:26 – Tuesday's focus is BONKERS. Election day in the USA. Expect the unexpected. The Lunar Eclipse is at 16 Taurus at 3:02 am PT. Celeste loves Lynda Hill's interpretation of the Sabian Symbols.   22:18 – On Wednesday, the word is ACCUSATIONS. Check your facts and sources. Don't believe everything you hear. The Moon enters Gemini at 5:36 am PT.   24:47 – On Thursday, the theme is SPECTACLES. The circus is in town. Be the observer. Consider the archetypal energy of Mars retrograde square Neptune.   26:03 – On Friday, the emphasis is CLOSURE. What are you releasing and putting behind you? The Moon enters Cancer at 4:22 pm PT.   27:52 – On Saturday, the word is SPREAD. Do a tarot or oracle reading for yourself. The Disseminating Moon phase begins at 5 Cancer at 2:22 am PT.   29:32 – Thanks for listening to Celestial Insights!

The song of the week is "Fight the Power" by Public Enemy, and the movie of the week is "Do the Right Thing."   00:54 – This week's three big things: First, Mars (action, assertion, drive) turns retrograde (Rx) in Gemini! The planet of action, assertion and drive begins its Rx journey at 25 Gemini on October 30; it will back up to 8 Gemini (January 12, 2023). Are there any planets between these degrees in your chart in mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces)? If so, this Rx may affect you! Mars squares Neptune during this Rx period, so deception and/or confusion may play a part. Mars also stations quincunx Pluto, which can speak to power, control, and domination issues. Celeste has been dealing with power outages in her building – how about you? Tune in for more examples! Make sure to take extra care when driving and crossing the street. The Sabian symbol of the station degree is "Winter Frost in the Woods." Will we see heating issues in Europe and elsewhere? As much as possible, try to get some extra sleep, add mindful practices (meditation, yoga, stretching, etc.) as you're able, lighten your schedule, slow down and move with intention, and don't forget to laugh at things that you have to do twice – Gemini, the sign of the twins, is known for this! Celeste created an eclipse season video series to help you through this time, so check it out!   10:32 – Second, we have an activating First Quarter Moon (FQM) at 8 Aquarius on Halloween. Will we see secrets revealed? The Sun is on asteroid Circe, a sorceress who turned men into pigs. The Moon is also parallel Eros and Hera. FQMs are a time to take action, and this one is tied to January 2022 – what was happening for you then?   13:15 – Third, Venus and the Sun meet the South Node at 13 Scorpio, perhaps bringing a desire to get to the bottom of things. What needs releasing? Look to the Scorpio area of your chart to find the house affected for you. The South Node can act like a cosmic drain, and the house will tell you what themes to watch out for! (You can always book a private astrology reading with Celeste if you need help with this!)   14:31 – On Sunday, the theme is BREATHE. Use the breath to combat anxiety, frustration, or nervous energy during Mars retrograde.   15:28 – On Monday, the word of the day is CLARIFICATION. What was formerly foggy becomes clear. The Moon enters Aquarius at 8:42 am PT. The First Quarter Moon phase begins at 8 Aquarius 11:37 pm PT.   17:00 – Tuesday's focus is AMOR. Feel the love.   18:04 – On Wednesday, the word is MISTY. Do a physical body scan and check your emotions. The Moon enters Pisces at 11:46 am PT.   19:39 – On Thursday, the theme is AMENDS. Make them or forgive someone for their trespasses.   20:29 – On Friday, the emphasis is PASSIONATE. The Gibbous Moon phase begins at 27 Pisces at 11:27 am PT. The Moon enters Aries at 4:06 pm PT.   21:19 – On Saturday, the word is GOODBYE. Leave behind something that is no longer serving you, whether it is an ancestral wound, unhelpful self-talk, or a bad habit.   22:48 – Thanks for listening to Celestial Insights!

What secrets will be revealed?   01:16 – This week's three big things: First, Scorpio Season begins on Sunday, when the Sun enters the sign of the Scorpion! (And Celeste created this eclipse season video series to help guide you through Scorpio season, so do check that out!) This is a good time to examine our relationship with power and control, and to dive into the shadows and the parts we would rather disown. What can you purge? This Scorpio season may bring themes of being forceful and taking power; think "Dangerous Liaisons." The Sun and Venus enter Scorpio and quincunx Jupiter in Aries on a world point. Will we see news about wealth or a religious figure? Jupiter folks have been known to be religious leaders, teachers, celebrities, judges, astrologers, and people who bring wisdom.   05:45 – Second, we have Solar Eclipse at 2 Scorpio! This eclipse is conjunct Venus and speaks to new starts. Mars is also contra-parallel Pluto until November 4, which brings the flavor of an opposition. Saturn and Uranus are contra-parallel until January 6. And Mars is out of bounds until May 5. Tune in, as Celeste also discusses some current events!   11:03 – Third, Jupiter retrogrades back into Pisces, its home sign, until December 20. Take extra care regarding COVID precautions during this time. Jupiter will join Neptune, also in Pisces. Will we see news about storms, refugees, or inflation? Your Pisces house may get a nice boost during this time. Be on the lookout for themes of compassion and charity. Celeste associates this ingress with the 6 of Pentacles.   14:26 – On Sunday, the theme is PLUNGE. You may feel a big energy shift as Venus and the Sun dive into the intense, deep waters of Scorpio. Venus enters Scorpio at 12:51 am PT. The Sun enters Scorpio at 3:35 am PT.   16:28 – On Monday, the word of the day is LEVITY. The balsamic moon phase is a time of release. Can you slow down and keep conversations light?   17:36 – Tuesday's focus is DESTINY. It is eclipse day, a time of fated events. The Moon enters Scorpio at 12:18 am PT. The solar eclipse is at 3:48 am PT.   19:15 – On Wednesday, the words are SHOCK & AWE. Be prepared for surprises. I hope they are happy ones.   21:04 – On Thursday, the theme is TACTFUL. Consider the impact of your words on others. The Moon enters Sagittarius at 3:54 am PT. Jupiter reenters Pisces at 10:09 pm PT.   23:05 – On Friday, the emphasis is CREATIVITY. Take some time for out-of-the-box thinking. The waxing crescent phase begins at 2:19 pm PT at 20 Sagittarius.   23:57 – On Saturday, the word is SHADOWS. Take time to consider what parts of your personality you would rather disown. The Moon enters Capricorn at 6:21 am PT. Mercury enters Scorpio at 12:21 pm PT.   25:38 – Thanks for listening to Celestial Insights!

Download Celeste's free guide to help understand the transiting Moon! Here's Celeste's Amazon storefront, with recommended books and oracle decks!   You can also follow Astrology by Celeste on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, TikTok, and Yelp.   *****   Astrology highlights for the week of October 16, 2022:   00:49 – This week's theme is: Walk by Faith, Not by Sight! Mars is about to go retrograde and is still closely square Neptune, bringing a lack of clarity. (Review last week's Episode 25, Aries Full Moon: Beauty & the Beast, for more details!) How can you connect to your intuition?   02:05 – Please join Celeste at her free Scorpio season webinar on October 16! (It will also be available on her YouTube page if you miss it.) To help you through the possibly turbulent Scorpio weather, consider purchasing the helpful forecast-by-sign for the coming eclipse season at Celeste's site https://www.astrologybyceleste.com/.   03:05 – This week's three big things: First, we have the Last Quarter (LQ) Moon at 24 Cancer on October 17. The Sun is on 24 Libra, on fixed star Arcturus (the hunter who begins to farm, a pathfinder). Mars is also trine the Sun and square Neptune during this LQ Moon. And Mercury is back on Diadem, the crown star. (Mercury has now cleared its retrograde shadow, hurrah!) Brainstorm ideas because there is a Grand Trine in air!   08:32 – Second, Venus is Cazimi (conjunct the Sun) at 29 Libra. The Sun and Venus are traveling together, trining Mars and square Pluto. Venus is in its home sign of Libra, and then will enter Scorpio, the sign of its "detriment" where she is uncomfortable and has reduced strength. This is the first time in over 100 years that the Cazimi is happening in Libra! Libra is the peacemaker sign; how can you infuse love, beauty, harmony, pleasure, contentment, and gratitude into your relationships? Celeste pulled the card of fated meetings for this transit! Venus's conjunctions to the Sun make a beautiful 5-pointed star pattern during its 8-year cycle. Check it out: Five petals of Venus!   11:49 – Third, Saturn goes direct this week on Saturday, trine Mercury and square Uranus. The station lasts for five days before and after… things may feel a bit chaotic, so ground and take care of yourself as you're able. Things that were stalled around Saturn topics may get a new life and forward momentum.   14:31 – On Sunday, the theme is PREPARATION. Take some time to consider how you will stay grounded when Mars goes retrograde. The breath is an amazing tool.    16:37 – On Monday, the word of the day is REFLECTION. Think about what helps you find security and safety despite uncertain times. The Last Quarter Moon phase starts 24 Cancer at 10:14 am PT. The Moon enters Leo at 9:44 pm PT.   17:50 – Tuesday's focus is ENJOYMENT. Let your inner child make an appearance today.   18:38 – On Wednesday, the word is DELIBERATE. Focus on the task at hand. Avoid multitasking.   19:56 – On Thursday, the theme is DEVOTION. What routines and habits are you loyal to? Are they helpful or hindering? The Moon enters Virgo at 9:25 am PT.   21:38 – On Friday, the emphasis is INTUITIVE. Stay present for signs and signals from the Universe. The Balsamic Moon phase begins at 13 Virgo at 11:06 am PT.   22:37 – On Saturday, the word is COMMITMENT. Dedicate yourself to finding balance and peace in your relationships. The Moon enters Libra at 6:23 pm PT.   25:09 – Thanks for listening to Celestial Insights!

And please join Celeste at her Scorpio season webinar on October 16. Also, Celeste is presenting on the Moon Phase Families for AFAN on October 20, and you're invited to that as well – both are free and open to the public!   02:40 – This week's three big things: First, on October 9 we have a Full Moon at 16 Aries on the axis of relationships. The Sun is conjunct Venus, and both are in a trine to Saturn: What is worth your effort? How do you express yourself in relationships? There's also a grand trine in Air (Sun in Libra, Mars in Gemini, Saturn in Aquarius): How do you create structures in relationships? How do you commit yourself? This Moon Phase Family started at the New Moon at 22 Aries (April 11, 2021); 9 months later, the First Quarter Moon was at 9 Aries (January 9, 2022); now we have the Full Moon; and the Last Quarter in this series will be at 17 Aries (July 9, 2023). Where are you a pioneer in your life?   08:00 – Second, the Sun in Libra will be conjunct the asteroid Psyche. The myth is about being attuned and bonded to another person and is associated with transformation and soul-mate union. (The book Celeste mentions is available on her Amazon storefront.) Notice if you see butterflies this week!   10:45 – Third, Mars in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces on Tuesday (October 11) at 23 Gemini/Pisces for the first of 3 times (the other 2 are on November 19, 2022, and March 14, 2023).

Mercury reenters Libra at 4:50 pm PT.   16:06 – Tuesday's focus is COMPOSURE. It may be the most challenging day of the week, don't break down, break through.   17:57 – On Wednesday, the word is ADMIRATION. The Moon enters Gemini at 10:07 pm PT.   20:08 – On Thursday, the theme is SERENDIPITY. Look for luck and opportunity to collide.

Drumroll, please…. Mercury and Pluto station direct!   01:00 – This week's three big things: First, Mercury stations direct on Oct. 2! Was this Mercury retrograde (Rx) period frustrating for you? Mercury turned Rx on Sept. 9 at 9 Libra and backed up to 24 Virgo. You may get clarity about things from the past as we tread over old ground. Some folks are dealing with betrayal (Libra is associated with relationships). And Mercury stations direct opposite Neptune, the planet of illusions and delusions, so stories of disillusionment have been present, too. Another feature was that Mercury stationed Rx opposite Jupiter – we saw stories such as the death of the Queen of England and "David vs. Goliath" stories such as the Ukraine invasion. Celeste also discusses the sad story of the murder of Mahsa Amini in Iran. The Sabian symbol for 25 Virgo, which speaks to this story, is "A flag at half-mast over a public building."   06:55 – Second, we have a First Quarter Moon (FQM) at 9 Capricorn on Sunday, Oct. 2. The Moon is on fixed star Facies, with associations as both a violent star and someone who fights for justice for others; we can use this energy to have focus. (Interestingly, it's also associated with blindness and poor eyesight). The Sun is on 9 Cap and the fixed star Diadem (the crown star). Celeste draws associations to Meghan Markle and how she is treated in the press – this FQM is activating her chart. Venus (love, beauty, harmony) is in Libra, forming a Hammer of Thor with the Saturn/Uranus square at the base. Watch for stories of powerful women in the news! Finally, Mercury is opposite Neptune – watch out for deception, and try to see as clearly as possible around this time.   10:24 – Third, Pluto turns direct at 26 Cap on Saturday! We tend to feel this energy five days before and after the exact station. Will hidden things come to light? Pluto rules power and domination and can bury or bring things to light – stuff bubbling up from the shadows. We may see more stories of revolutions against the authorities or possibly power dynamics in relationships. Mercury (communication) also trines Pluto (power, obsession, wealth) most of this week and part of next week; you may gain insights into how you want to move forward, and it's a great time to build new skills or develop mastery around things. Doing hard work will bring results (think the 8 of Pentacles card).   13:23 – On Sunday, the theme is DECISION. The Moon enters Capricorn at 12:37 am PT. If you are at a party, the vibe may get serious. Mercury stations direct at 24 Virgo at 2:07 am PT. The First Quarter Moon phase begins at 9 Capricorn at 5:14 pm PT.   15:34 – On Monday, the word of the day is EASE. Approach each task with purpose and take your time.   16:04 – Tuesday's focus is VISION. Make space to think creatively. You may discover innovative solutions. The Moon enters Aquarius at 3:20 am PT.   16:57 – On Wednesday, the word is CHOICES. If you find yourself at a crossroads, reflect before moving forward.   18:12 – On Thursday, the theme is EXPRESSION. Share your vision. The Disseminating Moon phase begins at 28 Aquarius at 2:36 am PT. The Moon enters Pisces at 5:46 am PT.   19:33 – On Friday, the emphasis is ROMANCE. It is a great night for a date. If single, treat yourself to a gift.   20:32 – On Saturday, the word is COMPETITION. Challenge yourself! The Moon enters Aries at 8:56 am PT. Pluto stations direct at 26 Capricorn at 2:56 pm PT.   21:48 – Thanks for listening to Celestial Insights!

Here's Celeste's Amazon storefront, with recommended books and oracle decks!   You can also follow Astrology by Celeste on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, TikTok, and Yelp.   *****   Astrology highlights for the week of September 25, 2022:   00:49 – This week's theme is: The Power of Love! We enter a week with a focus on the sign of Libra.   00:55 – The three big things this week: First, the week kicks off with a New Moon at 2 Libra! Libra is Cardinal initiating energy. How can you bring more balance and harmony to one-on-one relationships? Venus rules Libra: What do you want to magnetize to yourself? Venus in Virgo trines Pluto; Mars in Gemini contra-parallels Pluto in Capricorn. This is intense and primal – watch out for power struggles. Join Celeste's Libra New Moon webinar on September 25 at noon PT if it suits your fancy! Also, the complimentary Setting Intention with the Moon Guide for Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius are now available and includes worksheets!   04:12 – Second, Venus enters its home sign of Libra on Thursday. In Libra, Venus is harmonious and wants to connect and draw to itself what it desires. A few famous Venus-in-Libra folks include Carpool Karaoke's James Cordon (enjoy this episode with Lizzo!), as well as Will and Jada Smith. Someone with Venus in Libra might seek out equal, well-balanced partnerships. This could be a good time for women to possibly make some strides too, because Ceres also enters Virgo this week.   06:36 – So third, as Ceres enters Virgo, we may hear more news about food, grains, the harvest, and/or food shortages (as we also keep in mind that the Saturn-Uranus square is this close!). Also known as Demeter, Ceres is the mother figure and goddess of the harvest. The mythology is around the story of why we have the seasons and why the vegetation "dies" each fall. Folks with this placement tend to nurture others to achieve excellence through applying skills and talents.   09:29 – On Sunday, the theme is COME HITHER. Magnetize what you desire. The week starts with the Moon in Virgo and will conjunct Venus. When the Moon and Venus join once a month, it's known as a Goddess Day! The Moon enters Libra at 9:42 am PT. The New Moon at 2 Libra occurs at 2:54 pm PT.   11:05 – On Monday, the word of the day is REPARTEE. Lighten conversations with a witty turn of phrase.   13:23 – Tuesday's focus is SEDUCTIVE. The eyes are the windows to the soul. Cast your magic spell with a look. The Moon enters Scorpio at 4:14 pm PT.   15:20 – On Wednesday, the word is EXPERIMENT. Try a different approach.   16:29 – On Thursday, the theme is DEVOTION. What are you committed to nurturing and growing in your life as an act of love? Venus enters Libra at 12:48 am PT. Ceres enters Virgo at 1:55 am PT.  Crescent Moon phase at 21 Scorpio at 6:00 am PT. The Moon enters Sagittarius at 9:03 pm PT.   18:00 – On Friday, the emphasis is GRACEFUL. Float like a butterfly.   19:23 – On Saturday, the word is DELUGE. Protect your energy. Bring your figurative umbrella to avoid getting overwhelmed by another’s emotional response.   21:01 – Thanks for listening to Celestial Insights!
