With the Virgo Sun still strong in the sky, we start September looking forward to new beginnings, indeed for many it will be starting the new school year, and we are also moving toward a New Moon in Virgo on the 6th that will encourage us to “get our life in order”. Of course, as this month progresses we will be eagerly awaiting the Autumnal Equinox on the 22nd that heralds our change of seasons. For many New Englanders, Autumn is the best season of all, as the air loses the heat and humidity of Summer, becomes crisp and fragrant with the many Fall crops — fields of pumpkins, and orchards full of ripening apples, fresh rows of corn and cranberry bogs brighten the landscape. The majestic trees begin to turn into towering temples of glowing color — yellow, orange, red, maroon and browns of many shades. The yearly trek of the “Leaf Peepers” will begin as thousands drive to see and appreciate the magnificence of Mother Nature in Her Autumnal robes.
On the 2nd, Mars and Neptune are not in sync, we have a passion for a project, but perhaps aren’t seeing the many roadblocks ahead. Take a little time to perfect your vision. The joyous Leo Moon on the 3rd brings optimism and fun, however, later in the day a couple of aspects — Lady Venus and Neptune, and Mars and Saturn meetings may bring confusion and distress. It might just be the end-of-the-week exhaustion that is exacerbating our feelings. Try to think positive thoughts and realize — it is the weekend! Tomorrow evening, the 4th, we find Mercury and Saturn in sync, helping us to review any issues in a stable and practical manner. Feelings may run high on the morning of the 5th, as the Moon in Leo is not happy with Jupiter, you may want to opt out of any family discussion that is getting heated. Later on nearing the midnight hour, Lady Venus and Pluto just aren’t feeling close, if someone is being unreasonable it might be best to decide to agree to disagree — and hope the morning brings better ideas and decisions.
sThe workweek would usually begin on the 6th, however as we are celebrating Labor Day, and many have the day off, this may prove to be a blessing. Mars and Pluto have a connection around the breakfast hour that will help us hone in on our immediate plans — and a Lady Venus and Jupiter meeting that can open up our eyes to new opportunities in business or in love. Later at 8:52 PM EDT we have the Virgo New Moon cresting at 14 degrees of the sign, drawing in some energy from the Sun and Uranus. We may find this New Moon brings a breath of fresh air of opportunity and originality, it is up to us to use this special time to write out our affirmations in order to bring our own ideas and dreams to reality. The best time to write out your list of dreams, wishes and desires is right after the New Moon has crested.
On the 10th we find Lady Venus entering the sign Scorpio at 4:39 PM EDT, where Lady Venus becomes more passionate and intense. Earlier, around the noon hour, Mercury and Uranus are in flux as we try to communicate, but just don’t seem able to reach our audience. Early the next day the vital Scorpio Moon and Uranus are not getting along, our sleep may be disturbed with uneasy dreams and fantasies. The 11th also sees Jupiter and Pluto in close proximity, as we awaken. Our dreams may have opened our eyes to the true nature of our beliefs and how we can best serve ourselves and others in order to achieve our highest ideals. We may have a day to reflect when the Moon enters Sagittarius on the 13th, bringing its usual optimistic outlook into our psyche. Early in the wee hours of the 14th, the Sun and Neptune are off-key, we might awaken with some uncertainty about our true pathway, and our thoughts on exactly how we are going to keep on the right path. Use this time to engage in some soul-searching! With Mars entering balanced Libra later on in the evening, we will be prepped for more diplomatic conversations.
You may have to make some adjustments on the 16th as the Sun and Jupiter are a bit confused, you may have heard something that just doesn’t sit well. Time will be the arbiter of this news. Lady Venus and Neptune are uneasy after the lunch hour, you might just want to concentrate on your work. This evening the Sun and Pluto are totally in sync and we feel we can handle our own responsibilities without a doubt. We are somehow more confident and see the reality of our situation more clearly. The 17th sees Lady Venus and Saturn in a snit in the wee hours of the morning, perhaps we had a few negative words with a loved one and sleep is evasive. Again the early morning hours of the 18th may find us in a tizzy as Mercury and Neptune are at sea — we can’t seem to make sense of anything. Since it is the weekend, we might find that enjoying one of our favorite activities may help settle our minds. The Moon in Pisces on the 19th might help us to find our faith will help to bring some clarity and simplicity into our heart. On the 20th, Mercury and Jupiter are bringing us a chance to renew and refresh our minds around the dinner hour, we can enjoy feeling good about ourselves and what we have accomplished. This is also the day of the Full Moon in Pisces, at a very karmic degree — it crests at 7:55 PM EDT, and may bring us some insight into how necessary it is for humanity to become whole. We should not be broken up into tiny islands of disenchanted entities, rather we should be trying to become one with the true nature of our spiritual and physical mortality. The 22nd brings forth the Autumnal Equinox, as the Sun enters beautiful Libra, we remember that our ancestors celebrated this time of plenty as their crops ripened in the fields. Still they understood that soon there would be winter storms and winds blowing when the land was barren and cold. Their lives depended on the success of their harvest and they rejoiced that they would make it through the difficult days ahead. Feasting and dancing, they would acknowledge their debt to Mother Nature’s bounty.
Mercury and Pluto are not friends on the 22nd as we are getting into the office, you may want to avoid having any conversations and just head to your own desk or office. A touch of anxiety may continue into the 23rd, as Lady Venus is in opposition to Uranus as your alarm is going off — a relationship issue may have reared it’s ugly head and you are confused and/or perhaps hurt as some truths are being revealed. You may be feeling uneasy and aren’t looking forward to “the conversation”! The 25th may prove to be a make-or-break day with the help of Mars and Saturn in good aspect, we will have the fortitude to do what is best for us. On the 27th Mercury will begin its Retrograde motion in Libra until October 18th — during the duration we can find a rational way to handle our relationships, be able to use diplomacy in any conflict, and find a fair and equitable way to engage with others. The workweek begins on the 27th with Mars and Jupiter seeking adjustment as we get ready for work, we want to find compatible folks to work with us but also to find our independence and autonomy. The 29th finds Lady Venus and Neptune allowing us to find a comfortable relationship with family or a special individual, or our creative juices are flowing and we feel quite invincible. However, by the dinner hour with the Sun and Saturn in sync, our practicality and commonsense will keep us on an even keel.
The 30th may be a bit too much too handle, with the Sun tweaking Jupiter in the early afternoon, our nose may be out of joint because of someones thoughtless remark, and later in the day Venus and Jupiter are just not feeling it — making us realize we may have been too extravagant and now is the time to pay-the-piper. Well — it may be that dealing with Retrograde Mercury has us frustrated and discouraged — we may have to rethink our choices, and look forward to October’s more forgiving and balanced outlook. We can always look forward to Halloween — who among us doesn’t remember the fun of “Trick or Treating”? Go for the little pleasures of each and every day — and live without regret!
