SEPTEMBER ASTROLOGY FORECAST
This month starts off with the remnants of the recent eclipses. Did you experience any profound changes or realizations? I found the stillness and depth of the August 21st eclipse to be very illuminating. We will continue to experience conflicts both internally and externally as the old baggage arises to be released. On September 2 and 3rd, Mercury/Mars conjunct in Leo trine Uranus in Aries brings new awareness and breakthroughs in communication. A sigh of relief accompanies as mercury goes direct. The communication mishaps have been insane. Plans changing at the drop of a hat and going into an entirely different direction. I was supposed to be on a week vacation starting today but it was cancelled due to the hurricane. Adapting and flowing is called for in these times. Now is the time for reclaiming the magic in our lives and opening up to possibilities that seemed unlikely. The energies on the planet are intense and are teaching us to flow instead of forcing the river. Allowing and Accepting, will align us with Neptune (the divine). Time to break out of boxes that are so out of date and keeping you small. Time to bring your life into present time. The baggage needs to go. We are lightening our load and the vibrancy of the new reality cannot occur with denseness of the past. Listen to your soul and check in to see what your dreams are telling you. Many people are feeling a need to move, break out of relationships, change careers and live differently. Have you been feeling overwhelmed? Exhausted? Sensitive to energies? Join the club. Make sure you exercise and get out in nature. Grounding is especially crucial during this shake-up. Full Moon is September 6th in Pisces. New Moon is September 19th in Virgo.
URANUS went retrograde on August 2nd-January 1. Time to make the internal changes that are required before the new possibilities show up. Uranus represents change, new insights and overhauling outdated systems. With the frequency changes we are experiencing, our bodies are getting bombarded by psychic webs and erratic energies. Clearing out the inner clutter will open up new territories that have not been discovered before. Exciting times.
SATURN went direct on August 25th and had been retrograde since April 6th. Time to implement the goals that got sidetracked over the past five months. Saturn represents building, laying a foundation, structure and self-sufficiency. Patience, one step at a time and commitment are Saturn’s motto.
MERCURY went retrograde on August 11th-September 4th. Time to re-evaluate, redo, revisit and revamp. Great time to edit a book, clean out your files, organize your closets and find new order. Make sure to fix all mechanical/technological items that may be giving you problems. Communication problems show up in texts, emails not arriving, appointments cancelled and people not making sense. Be very clear with others and make sure that they understood what you mean. Travel can have delays so give yourself plenty of extra time.
Saturn in Sagittarius
Saturn, the task master has entered the expansive, optimistic sign of Sagittarius for two years. Since Sagittarius loves to travel and Saturn loves to organize, this can be a great time to plan foreign trips where learning will take place. Sagittarius loves adventure, learning, language, teaching, publishing and humor. Saturn loves structure, commitment, discipline, building, conserving, loyalty and mastery. Good time to commit to a writing project, getting published, taking small steps toward a large vision and making plans for your future.
Jupiter in Libra
Jupiter, the expansive planet has entered the cardinal, air sign Libra for one year. Jupiter looks at life with optimism and humor while Libra focuses on being fair and balanced. When we merge these two together, we get a tendency to get over enthusiastic about relationships. We see the potential in our partner and want things to work out. Libra loves social events, artistic pursuits, collaborations and marriage. We may see an increase of engagements, parties, new trends and peace movements. Jupiter wants to improve the sign it is visiting. Good time for counseling, legal issues and creating beauty in our environment.
Mars in Leo
July 20-September 4
Mars the planet of drive and energy visits fiery, creative Leo. This is a good month to put energy into creative projects, entertaining, romance, fun, and achieving excellence. Leo wants to stand out and receive applause. But it also is ruled by the sun and wants you to have fun as well. The generosity of Leo comes from their big heart. So this month look at what makes your heart sing? Be generous and smile! Mars is about desire and Leo wants the best. Seek quality in your life and go after it with confidence.
Mars in Virgo
September 4-October 22
Mars the planet of drive and energy visits earthy, efficient Virgo. This is a good month to put energy into perfecting a project, building, organizing and service. Take care of your health and watch out for additional worries. Mars in Virgo can tend to focus on what is wrong with something or someone. The critical side of Virgo can take over so try to channel the energy into letting go of the small stuff. Reorganize your office, closets, business and house. Some people can work in the garden and healing fields to find satisfaction. Virgo rules crafts and working with your hands. Find an outlet that takes tremendous focus and attention to detail.
Venus in Leo
August 26-September 19th
Venus the goddess of love visits fiery, passionate Leo. Venus loves to display herself in dramatic ways in Leo. Good time to enhance your romantic life with sensual attire, beautiful scenery, delicious food and lots of affection. If you want to attract a new relationship-be open and direct with your feelings. Be the lioness and express your admiration. The love corner can be reset for a new relationship or to continue the deliciousness of your current partnership. I can assist with love corner enhancements.
Venus in Virgo
September 19th-October 13th
Venus the goddess of love visits refined, sensual Virgo. Virgo brings simplicity and healing to Venus. Good time to take care of your body, get massages, improve your diet and give more in love. Virgo is not about excess. Discrimination and analyzation accompany the love process. If in the dating scene, you will tend to be more objective about prospective suitors. Taking walks in nature and conversation are a good backdrop for the unfoldment of romance.
Mercury in Virgo
July 26 — September 29th
Mercury the messenger visits earthy, analytical Virgo. Mercury rules Virgo so it is at home here. The mind does not stop moving in this sign and wants to figure out all the details in a logical way. Good time to make plans, edit a book, organize your office, organize your mind and find more efficient ways to proceed ahead. Mercury goes direct on September 5th.
