Let’s take a good look at September and see what it is the universe wants us know. We start the month, as always, with a Virgo Sun. Paying attention to the details is highlighted. We get back into our routines, or at least find a new routine that is suitable for now. In the northern hemisphere, we have just finished most of our summer and now everyone and everything is feeling the cool down, evenings when a sweater is needed. This also is a signal for the natural world to start stocking up, thinking about the coming cold weather and for some the lack of food.
While we humans do have the capacity to store and buy food whenever we want, we are still ruled by the universal energy that asks, can you make it through the winter? Take stock and look at what you have. These are the harvest properties of Virgo, and the reason anyone who is a Virgo or has Virgo dominate in some other way in their chart will be picky, very detail oriented, and want to organize those around them. Take notice of this and follow along. We are all affected by the Sun and the planets and this is what we are feeling we need to do now.
Labor Day weekend is the unofficial start of Fall, so let’s take a quick look at the aspects this weekend. We have a Moon in Scorpio. Passion and transformation are key words for this weekend. It’s the transformation of summer to fall and of fun to serious work. We are transforming this weekend. Be sure to include something you are passionate about for added fun as the Moon will move into Sagittarius before the weekend is through and they do love to play. So should we!
On September 6th, we have the Moon and Pluto conjunct in Capricorn. It will seem like the end of fun now and all we can see is the work in front of us. I know it’s not the best news in the world. If we are to have fun here and there we must also work to earn the living so we can play later.
September 9th Mercury moved back into Virgo. We can get our lives moving forward a bit quicker now that Mercury is past its’ retrograde numbers. He retraced his steps over the last three weeks, and now he is in new territory. We can use this Virgo energy to gather any and all ideas around us that are work related more than anything else. Pay attention to all the little details. We will be rewarded in the long run. This will be especially true for those of us who have very little Virgo in our charts. Right now, we have the opportunity to really dig in deep and gather those details that will be important later. Keep a journal or log. You will use it later in the year.
September 12th Mercury and Pluto are playing nice and we have the Full Moon in Pisces. Mercury has finally passed the point of retrograde, so he is free to say new things. What are he and Pluto talking about now? Well, with these two as they are for the next day and with the Full Moon in Pisces, we can expect a lot of probing questions like the 2 year old who says WHY all the time. We are in a phase when we want to know why. This is the conversation Mercury and Pluto are having. They are talking back and forth about anything and everything. If ever you needed some time or “A” time to really dig deep into something that is important to you, then today is a good day to start thanks to Mercury and Pluto playing nice and being cooperative. We can get straight to the point as long as we take the time.
At 5:27 a.m., we have the Full Moon in Pisces. So what is it that this Full Moon is here to make us aware of? Let’s see. The things we are focusing on when the Moon is in Pisces typically include our imagination, inner happiness, psychic sensitivity, trusting our intuition, spiritual healing, compassion, and releasing helplessness. We be feeling like a victim or having that mentality and indulging in defeatist attitudes, procrastination, panic attacks, deception, addictions, and disappointments.
This Full Moon is in the 1st/7th houses (on the east coast) so we are blessed to know that our relationships are also on alert. Besides feeling as if we have no boundaries and all of our intuition and sensitivity are all messed up, we get to look at how these things play out in our personal relationships. Not every relationship we have, but at least one will need some adjustments of some kind in regards to the list above.
As most of us know, the Full Moon is here to heighten our awareness around something we are feeling and thus allow us to release whatever is not in our best interest. Endings are typical at the Full Moon and this is what I recommend you implement as well. Choose what you want to release. Choose from the list above that says “Things we focus on when the Moon is in Pisces.” Write down what may be blocking you from having what you want and need in your life--only you know what that is. Here are a few ideas to help you get your thoughts moving:
· “I release all feelings of helplessness”
· “I release my feelings of disappointment in regards to _______”
· “I release all doubt that I am intuitive”
· “I easily find myself free of addiction to ________”
With the Sun in Virgo and the Moon in Pisces there is pull between Spirit and Matter on this day. The Virgo Sun is all about the facts and details. The Pisces Moon is all about the collective and what is for the good of everyone. Full Moons are always about the polarity and the opposition of forces.
So later in the day, 12 and 15 hours after the Full Moon, we have the Moon trine to Mars. Action around the home can be taken if that is part of your agenda or need during this Full Moon time period. The Moon will also be opposite to Venus. The opposition could involve conflict with a woman symbolized by the moon or we may have an emotional conflict within ourselves about something we value symbolized by Venus. Our belief and/or how we see something can change today due to all of these aspects.
Do not be alarmed if something leaves your life today, it is for the best.
On September 14th Venus moves into Libra and any and most likely all relationships will be examined over the next few weeks. Venus in Libra is in her natural sign. What do we value when she is in Libra? We value our relationships. Without fail, we will focus on them and ask some probing questions of ourselves. What they are like? What needs to change? What is good? Is it balanced? Now that last part is the key factory with Venus in Libra…Is my relationship balanced? Even if it isn’t, it may not be easy to fix or identify what the issue is. Libra is good at seeing where things are out of balance but not so good at fixing that imbalance. So all this transit of Venus in Libra may do is make us aware of what is out of balance.
On September 17th Venus and Uranus are in an opposition to each other and that will cause an awareness of some kind in regards to the things we value and as already mentioned our relationships. Expect something unexpected around the 17th of September.
We also have Pluto moving direct on September 16th so in essence, it is stationary for a couple days. Pluto in Capricorn with all this relationship stuff going on will surely help to transform our relationships into something that they are not before this time.
Mars will enter Leo on September 18th and heighten our sexual energy within these relationships or in a new relationship meant just for that purpose. Fire sign energy is strong, but Leo is also fixed energy so do what you can to not become obsessive about someone or something. This is only a temporary feeling that will last a few weeks. It can be fun, but if you are looking for something long lasting as the Saturn transits are suggesting, this is not the time to start a new relationship.
On September 23rd we enter Fall. The equinox is at 5:05 a.m. east coast time. The year is balanced once again. We should revel in the day and enjoy our moment of equilibrium. But it will be short lived as the Moon is causing some issues with Pluto and our need to cling. Then there is Mars and Uranus playing nice, so we feel the need to move forward and get something done. Thinking outside the box is relevant now, the same old will not work anymore.
On September 25th Mercury moves into Libra. At this point, we may say anything just to keep the peace or be in a relationship whichever is more important to us. Mercury in Libra can be a person who is a great speaker-- one who knows all the right things to say all the time, but at what cost? Keep this in mind over the next three weeks as Mercury transits through Libra. Are you willing to tell a lie just to keep the peace or are you willing to throw everything out of balance and be truthful? I know it’s not an easy choice is it?
When Venus conjuncts Saturn, we will be able to fix things if we want to and see where we are stable in our relationships. Saturn in Libra can be very beneficial. With Venus coming to conjunct Saturn at the end of this month and into early October, we have the whole month of September to figure it out. Oh yes, relationships are the focus this month, romantic or otherwise.
All this Libra energy is highlighted at the end of the month with the New Moon in Libra on September 27th. The things we should be focusing on during the New Moon in Libra are relationships, teamwork, partnerships, giving and receiving support, and cooperation, our marriage, negotiation skills, harmony, teamwork, diplomacy, refinement, and healing codependency.
As this New Moon gets closer, I will have more details for you about it on my web site. Please check in the last week of September for more details.
