After many continued prayers & going back to your previous readings. I found I just need patience! Things are FINALLY starting to turn around. I just adore you and LOVE what you do Maria.

Astro News

By Maria Shaw Lawson


The Harvest Full Moon this past Thursday was in Pisces. The chart for the moon showed critical degrees and this could bring on some sort of a major decision or change for the United States. There could be also be more crazy weather patterns for parts of the country. I hope things really do settle down with this talk of war. It appears to be settled one day, and then another the conflict flairs up again.

I do have some good news to report. You can expect a very positive cycle to begin for good luck and money. It peaks in less than a week and continues through the first three days of October. This is Venus trine Jupiter. So make the most of this period if you are trying to land a new job, promote a product or do something to generate more income.

At the same time but lasting a bit longer until the second week of October we also have a harsh aspect called Venus square Mars. This basically means hat we really want something to change in our lives but we don't know how to get it. We have no idea on how to get to Point A to Point B but we know how we want the end result to look. For example: You may say, "I need more money to be able to move but I don't see a way to move because I can't sell the house and there are no job prospects in my area. "

If you use the words can't and won't and don't, then you will attract the same energy to you. Instead perhaps you should try to just focus on the result and ask the universe to guide you. Let God take care of it. If you think positive thoughts, that positive energy will be attracted back at you. On another note; this Venus square Mars aspect can produce challenges in your love life. So watch your words and don't buy into other folks drama.


The Fall Equinox occurs on September 22nd at 4:45 PM Eastern . The forecast is mixed for the Fall. The great news is there's abundance for some people. Large windfalls could come in for some of you StarScopers from now through the Winter Equinox December 22.

This aspect is Venus conjunct Saturn trine both Chiron and Jupiter. However there are some intense energy, especially in personal relationships. People are likely to be angry if things are not happening quickly enough for them. If you find yourself with a lot of pent up energy or others you are in relationships with, the best way to diffuse this is to let some of that energy out....get out and exercise, run, walk, etc. But don't allow it to stay in and fester within.


We have a few nice aspects coming Monday-Wednesday of next week. So if you are planning on doing anything special or putting energy out toward your goals, do it early in the week. Make things happen as the universe is working with you the 23 through the 25.


Earlier in the week Venus and Saturn connected with the Nodes of Fate, causing everyone to examine relationships and their value in their lives. Last week and this week, people are ending relationships while new fated destined relationships enter the picture. Friday, transformational Pluto went direct after it has been retrograde since the spring. If you have been feeling a strange intensity, it's probably because of Pluto and of course last week's Full Moon energy too. Pluto direct will bring resolution to a long-standing issue, concern or problem you have been dealing with. This month is a time to evolve to a new level, a new life, relationship, into a person, etc. Are you feeling it? This week ahead you are being asked by the universe to make a promise to "give it your all!" You need to commit to really doing something now if you want to see changes. Rather than complain or wish upon a star about doing something, now the universe is saying to you "Make the commitment to do so!" Over the weekend some of you may experience a sad ending. It may need to happen or you may have a family change or home-related issue/change that makes you feel a little sad too. But this will pass and is part of the bigger picture.

So much is happening on a personal and professional level to many of us. But I feel even more so is happening on an internal level now. These internal changes will prove to dictate the successful autumn changes you will have. Just as the leaves change and signal a new season, you too are changing and coming into a new colorful world but remember you are the artist in your life. You get to choose the colors. They don't have to be black and white.

Have a blessed week, Maria
