Magical Times for September & October 2018

by Bob Makransky


Planetary transits – in conjunction with Planetary Hours – are a simple way to plan your activities to take advantage of the karmic ebb and flow of the cosmos. These favorable / unfavorable times to act (or refrain from action) hold true for everyone; but they are particularly effective when a celestial event occurs on or opposite a planet or angle (Ascendant or Midheaven) in your natal horoscope. You can ascertain the positions of the planets and angles in your natal horoscope for free from astro.com.

Best times to initiate / pray / cast spells for healings (white candle, visualize sick person healthy and happy NOW); these are also the best times for moving or departing on journeys (time of leaving home or takeoff): 9/13/2018 between 7:05-7:45 pm; 10/11/2018 between 6:19-7:04 pm.

9/06/20187:13 am Saturn Stationary Direct @ 2° CP 33’ = You may encounter obstacles which have to be confronted directly. You cannot shrink from difficulties but must hold your ground and secure your position in life. Good for laying foundations, beginning long-term projects, and dropping bad habits (Wednesday 4:08-4:53 pm). This is also a good time to do a Scat ritual to get rid of unwanted people or circumstances: light a black candle and imagine yourself confronting the oppressive person or situation with cold detachment and indifference. Then throw your arms outward forcefully and decisively as if to cast off the oppressive person or situation. You don’t visualize something bad happening to the person, but rather feel how happy and light you feel now that person is gone!

9/07/20182:27 pm sun opposition Neptune @ 15° VI/PI 05’ = There may be some deception going on, especially vis a vis men, superiors, authorities. Be careful not to deceive yourself. It’s easy to fall for delusions now; you have to face up to reality, not pursue fantasies or will-o-the-wisps; act decisively between 12:59-1:44 pm.

9/12/20185:02 am Venus opposition Uranus @ 2° SC/TA 04’ = This may bring sudden estrangements or disruptive actions by a friend or family member. It may be best to leave the other person in peace and go your own way. If you must deal with them, do so Tuesday between 4:08-4:54 pm.

9/20/20189:52 pm Mercury superior conjunction sun @ 28° VI 03’ = New information comes to light which gives you a surge of confidence and self-certainty; a burst of insight or understanding. A good day for making moves, for travel, for joining together or communicating with others, and for making forward-going progress in personal and business relationships (10:54-11:35 am or 5:53-6:35 pm), or doing a ritual for success in Studies: light a blue candle and imagine that you are in school and are feeling confident and pleased with your understanding and progress! See yourself reciting in class and feel that you are making a good contribution to the class and have the esteem of your teachers and classmates!

9/25/201812:25 am Venus Greatest Brilliancy @ 8° SC 49’ = Romance is in the air all this week, especially for people with personal planets in 9° Scorpio. Something gratifying comes to fruition. A great time to ask someone out on a date, or to marry, or to cast a love spell: at exactly 3:08 pm on Monday the 23rd in NYC (2:57 pm Boston; 3:13 pm Philly) light a pink candle and imagine that you are right there in front of your beloved (or if you don’t have a beloved, a beautiful stranger); look him or her directly in the eyes; take his or her hand in yours; and say everything that is in your heart. Then embrace and kiss as if it were really happening right now. Then with a sigh, let him / her go and wish them well.

9/30/201810:07 pm Pluto Stationary Direct @ 18° CP 45’ = May bring events of a disorienting, transformative nature. A good day to tackle something you’ve been putting off.

10/05/20183:04 pm Venus Stationary Retrograde @ 10° SC 50’ = A turning point in an intimate relationship which requires sensitivity and delicacy on your part. You must be sensitive to undercurrents and attentive to other people’s feelings. You can get past something that was separating you from other people (1:45-2:23 pm).

10/15/20184:21 pm Mercury conjunct Venus @ 8° SC 51’ = Get things straight with a loved one or friend (11:52 am-12:28 pm), clear up misunderstandings (12:46-1:22 pm). Don’t let communications problems bog you down; plan to enjoy yourself. A good time for dating, travel, recitals, art exhibits, parties, children.

10/23/2018 – 8:47 pm sun opposition Uranus @ 0° SC/TA 33’ = This may bring tension, conflict, and stress, especially vis a vis father, boss, authorities, men generally. Keep your cool. If you find that you must confront, do this 8:19-8:56 am or 2:32-3:05 pm.

10/26/201810:16 am Venus inferior conjunction sun @ 3° SC 06’ = Brings a surprising event which powerfully engages your feelings. Can be very poignant: it either sweeps you off your feet or knocks you off your pins, but in either case it opens new possibilities and points you in a new emotional direction. You get to the root of how you are really feeling in a relationship; stand up for yourself, reach out to make your own desires come true (7:26-8:04 am).

10/31/20184:46 am Venus opposition Uranus @ 0° SC/TA 15’ = This may bring sudden estrangements or disruptive actions by a friend or family member. It may be best to leave the other person in peace and go your own way. Good day to break up an unwanted relationship on Tuesday the 30th at exactly 5:31 pm in NYC (5:17 pm Boston; 5:37 pm in Philly).

10/31/20187:43 pm Venus heliacal rising @ 29° LI 54’= This is a very favorable week for the affections: good for following your own impulses and being receptive to what comes along. A new beginning or an opportunity opens up in a personal relationship or creative endeavor (7:01-7:42 pm).
