Fall Equinox and Mercury Retrograde


Last week you received an in-depth explanation of the planetary situation for September. To read again please go here: .


Today we give you a picture of the equinoxes of which the fall equinox comes to the Northern Hemisphere September 22 , 2021 at 3:34:46 pm Eastern Time at Wilmington Delaware.

 The day and night are equal, hence the word Equinox. www. has interesting articles about the equinoxes and the solstices and is where the picture is from.

 The four points of change, called the solstices and equinoxes are when the Sun goes into zero degrees of one of the four cardinal signs: the Solstices Cancer and Capricorn; the Equinoxes Aries and Libra. In ancient literature these are called the four corners of the earth. We know the earth is round so it cannot have corners, but these four astronomical points were translated as corners. They are active “corners” of the zodiac, a sort of corner of the seasons, resulting in active times of the year. We call them active because Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn are cardinal or active signs, signifying beginnings, especially Aries, the first sign of the zodiac.

 When the fall equinox happens on Sept 22 this year, it triggers activity to people in the sign of Libra especially, who would be the catalyst or spark for activity and who may challenge Aries in relationships, spark Cancer and Capricorn with energizing, sometimes challenging circumstances. In astrology the word challenge is the keyword for the 90-degree square planetary relationship. These square challenges mean situations occur which require decisions, which these signs enjoy. Challenge? Tell them it cannot be done and they’ll do it, maybe not telling you but bring you the results.

 So for this Libra time, in addition to the Cardinals, other signs have activity, too. Gemini and Aquarius have nice social time; Leo and Sagittarius have the opportunity to be included but need to accept to have the good time. Virgo and Scorpio are neutral, with Pisces and Taurus adapting to requests for cooperation or being with others, probably in unexpected social activities. These signs enjoy being along, hence the adaption.

 These predictions are very general and may not fit everyone. Each horoscope is unique. A personal reading using your specific birth information is uncannily accurate and very helpful. Contact Patty for your reading. 


Mercury goes retrograde Sept 27.

Here is a picture of how a retrograde planet travels in the sky, so you can see it actually appears to go backwards and forward again to repeat where it has been. When it goes retrograde it has a “stationary point” where it seems to stand still, meaning it is in the same degree for a day or two, then moves forward, seems to move backward, traveling over the same degree; then it goes forward, traveling over that degree again. This can be likened to driving along a road, turning around and turning around again, passing the same point three times. In addition to the typical glitches of Mercury retrograde, if you have these degrees in your chart, it is more glitchy and annoying.

Celestial situation Sept. 2021

Pluto is still stuck at 24 degrees Capricorn, continuing its slow, relentless tearing down what was thought to be secure and stable, whether actual structures, political or ideological ideas or cherished situations no longer needed. This continues until January 2024. We are entering the Age of Aquarius. What does this mean? That the energy of the Age of Pisces is quickly receding and the very different energy of Aquarius is quickly coming in. This combination is like swift tides going out and coming in, with the of breaking waves where they meet. To fully enter a new age, the previous age’s exaggerations must be transformed  to make way for the energy of the new age.

What is happening now? The excesses of the Age of Pisces are now being torn down and exposed. We can witness this with the exposure of sexual and financial excess with big corporations and the excesses of religions trying to force their views on everyone.  (Pisces/Neptune and Capricorn/ Pluto). We are witnessing the incoming Aquarian energy with the demands for equality - not tolerance, which only puts up with - but equality - everyone has the same rights, respect and acceptance. As the Age of Aquarius progresses, the entities with the out-of-touch attitudes will be gone and the Aquarian virtues slowly becoming.

The Age of Aquarius is also a fixed era because Aquarius is a fixed sign. The caution is that of dictatorship, which happens under fixed-sign people . Hitler was a Taurus and Mussolini was a Leo who dominated and terrorized their people. Roosevelt was an Aquarius who exhibited the humanitarian qualities of Aquarius by putting people to work with the public infrastructure work, and introduced Social Security. After he died in his third term, Congress passed the law that American presidents can only serve two terms because they did not like the emergence of his supposed dictatorship tendencies. So let us be aware of dictatorship tendencies here in the USA. It is certainly evident in other countries.

The USA chart continues the Neptune opposition, which we are experiencing with the Afghanistan withdrawal and the appearance of “loss of face,” and confusing, vague and sometimes deceptive announcements in the news and on the internet. Included in this is the confusion about the vaccines and wearing of masks. Use your discernment and fact-check what you see and hear.

The USA is also going through transiting Pluto opposing natal Mercury, intense, indeed. Strong opposition to trade, agreements, existing laws and the Supreme Court decisions. Pluto is also the patron planet of force of will, in the USA chart from a strong dictator-like entity or entities opposing the rule of law.

Depending what USA chart degrees used, if the 14 degree Sagittarius is accurate, Transiting Uranus is in a see-saw/quincunx relationship, meaning unsettled situation regarding children and that seems to be true with the school situation and children getting sick. This may be intense through the end of this month.

The USA will see a repeat of past mistakes arising, that happened between February 7 and February 15 and was preceded by Jan 15 to 19th. This will happen from Sept. 29 through Oct 23rd. This can be with expenditures, loss of possessions and loss of self-confidence as a result of all that has happened here this year: drought, no water and fires in the west, hurricane with floods in the south and northeast, disruption of vital supply chain because of the pandemic. The good side of this is the generosity of the people helping those in need.

As for COVID itself, the planets indicate it is active through the end of December this year because both Jupiter and Saturn are in the sign of many people. The pandemic is part of transiting Pluto in the sign of Capricorn, which tears things down. When the pandemic began, many other planets joined Pluto in Capricorn, showing we astrologers that society was in for a drastic change and be changed forever.  I admire the young people who see new ways of doing things to help others, the environment and even how money is handled and transferred.

You and the Afghanstan withdrawal

 The USA and NATO withdrew from Afghanistan,

with the USA withdrawn by August 31, 2021.

 What do the planets “say” about the USA withdrawal and how will the withdrawal influence your life here in the USA? The following is without astrology descriptions but is based on the planetary relationships to the USA horoscope. The changes we are going through are from COVID, droughts with no water in some places, and floods in other places.

 To read more about Afghanistan, go to these two websites:



The withdrawal is perceived to be a loss for the USA and certainly is a “loss of face”. The loss of face evidenced by the withdrawal could be the beginning of the USA not maintaining world-wide armies. The planets indicate a strengthening of the office of the presidency with the president himself adjusting to the new reality.

 The astrology that reveals the affect of the withdrawal related to the general population is concentrated on several areas: foreign affairs, finances, use of resources, self esteem and self confidence. The focus on the self esteem of the population is because of the change from the old established way of perceiving ourselves to the new, with those of other cultures bringing change. We have other immigrants and refugees arriving in the USA, so the changes are not only with the incoming Afghans.

 The refugees arriving in the USA bring about change and adaptation to them and their cultures. The affects appear to be through January of 2023, perhaps because of groups arriving at different times and getting settled into communities.

 There may be strong opposition to this change by those who have been in the USA for a long time, thinking they are the original settlers, when we all came from other places at one time or another. Those citizens who arrived earlier may be afraid of the new, so they may strongly speak out in opposition. However, the indications include that open, honest communication will alleviate fear to inclusion and progress to a new, exciting mix of cultures.

 The planets indicate émigrés will bring with them needed and exciting change, expanding understandings and new ways of earning money, thereby contributing to the good of the nation.

 *   How about you? The planetary foçi are Capricorn, Aquarius and Virgo, meaning we as a Sun sign in each of these groups may experience the drastic changes as follows. Capricorn goes through a transformation of what was thought to be secure and hopefully use the change to establish new securities. Aquarius enjoys the activity to acquire new knowledge put to use with friends and groups. Virgo applies discernment to analyze and apply practical detail to the change, remembering to focus on the future instead of the past. Taurus, Cancer, and Pisces have the opportunity to apply their practical and nurturing abilities. Leo and Scorpio may be challenged to be part of a large group, and experience new control issues. Aries and Sagittarius have the opportunity to be part of the expansion of the new with their creativity , interest in foreign affairs and keeping the peace. Gemini and Libra are in the right place at the right time to be included to give their talents of diplomacy and grace. These are generalities for each group of Sun signs. Your individual adaptation will be specific and personal to you.

 We knew the chaos with the outgoing Age of Pisces and the incoming Age of Aquarius would bring change and it is happening with world-wide COVID, world-wide immigration, and world-wide natural disasters. It is drastic and quick. Adaptation with compassion and cooperation helps us get through it. Edgar Cayce would say to know your Ideal to make decisions.

 We conclude with the optimism that the human race is resilient and basically loving and helpful. We will adapt to the changes and help the new émigrés assimilate. The Age of Aquarius, which we are entering now asks us to accept - more than tolerate - others and the new. I am seeing the very young come up with new ways of being that will help all. They are awesome.

 On a personal note, my mother was an Irish immigrant. I went to school with Irish and Italian first-generation Americans (as I am) and remember the Polish, German and Greek peoples, although did not go to school with them. Then came the Cubans, the Haitians, and after the wars, Koreans and Vietnamese and now South Americans and Afghans. Each group continues to enrich our culture, with their food, music and colloquial expressions. We are One.
