Don’t let the blah energy of September’s opening days get you down. There’s a lot of sadness in the world and we’re making our way toward a zeitgeist (paradigm) shift in less than four years when slow moving planets change signs bringing to fruition the results of our past actions. (Pluto to Aquarius, Neptune and Saturn to Aries and Uranus to Gemini.)
Looking at this long view and seeing what’s coming up, let’s make use of this time. Short as the Virgo energy of the first 22 days of this month is, it’s useful. Clean up your act. Sweep the floors. Harvest the fruit. Edit your work. After the 22nd the Sun enters Libra at equinox and attempts to restore balance to your actions. Mercury turns retrograde toward the end of the month, another reason to get things going sooner rather than later.
Until equinox, when day and night are equal, we’re immersed in the energy of the Virgo/Pisces axis. Virgo is the divine physician and Pisces the anesthesia. They work together, kind of like a tapestry.
A tapestry is a picture made with threads of cotton and wool that tells a story. But turn the tapestry over and it’s a mess. The gold stitch goes here and the red runs along there and none of it makes sense. Virgo quivers with anxiety at such chaos. But Pisces turns it over and sees the perfect whole. Keep that in mind as you go through this month.
Labor Day Sept 6th. is a Virgo New Moon in harmony with Uranus in Taurus. Maintain your dignity as necessary changes become clear. Think health and efficiency. The New Moon encourages strategy and flexibility. It’s activated by a conjunction with Mars the very next day. Don’t dilly dally! Get going! But please, be kind. Mars can bring sharpness and we don’t want to hurt each other.
Sept 8, could be a little sensitive when Mercury and the Moon conjunct 12 Libra oppose Chiron 11 Aries.
Sept 10, there’s an energy shift as feminine Venus leaves Libra for intense Scorpio. It’s easy to stew over injustices.
On 9/11 the Moon in Scorpio helps us remember.
Another energy shift Sept 14 in the evening when Mars leaves Virgo for diplomatic and constricting Libra. Try different tactics over the next seven weeks.
Harmony reigns from the 19th to the 22nd. It’s a good time for classes, both teaching and taking, when Mercury in Libra trines Jupiter Aquarius.
Just two days before equinox, on Sept 20, there’s a Full Moon at the last degrees of Pisces; love and forgiveness are the path, no matter how difficult the situation. Nothing else will set you free. There’s something familiar about this time. You’ve learned this lesson before. Stay attuned to inner wisdom.
Sept 22 equinox – equal day and night. Sun crosses celestial equator and enters Libra. Attention focuses on relationships and the maintenance of harmony.
Sept 23 Sudden turn in fortune or love. Technology stocks and bonds look interesting. Earth changes likely as Venus opposes Uranus.
Sept 26 Diplomacy works. Mars trines Saturn.
Sept 27 Wait up a minute! Mercury stations to turn retrograde. Things slow down or get a little confusing.
Sept 28 Mercury retrogrades at 25’24” Libra until October 19 at 10’Libra.
The month ends on a solid note as the Sun trines Saturn. Diplomacy and the awareness that we really truly are One on the body of this planet means that we may be able to make common sense decisions and follow through on them.
Thanks for reading, and remember: you matter, we’re all connected, Earth is our home and love is our destination.
