Looking for the Center: Astrology of September 11 – September 18, 2018

***Check out NEW Real Imaginal Daily Divinations on Instagram!*** The story in the sky this week centers on sweet Venus’ opposition to erratic Uranus (exact Sept. 12), which is sharply punctuated by a T-square formation with the swordsman himself, Mars. We can expect the beginnings (or a deepening) of a re-organization in our social sphere which may impact our friendships, our sources of income, our intimate partnerships and our ideas about how to love and be loved.

Mercury is at home in Gemini and is less concerned with “truth” than with “information” while in its home sign, so take care to locate your interpretations in a proper context. (Pro tip: Reach out to people and give them a chance to show up as real people, rather than reducing them to bit players in your own self-centered storylines.) Neptune at its best is the quest for …
