Welcome to September with its annual rotation of seasons, the Fall equinox, or Q3, however you may see it. The events of the past month presaged by that dicey full moon of the ninth, have left us all on edge, what’s next ?
What presages such cruelty across the ocean in the Middle East, astrologically I mean. We know the history. The several year square between Pluto, underworld god of great destructive power and Uranus, the radical revolutionary committed to his version social change for humankind, have clashed for the last six years, and will finally separate closer to 2020. The ongoing sextile between Neptune and Pluto, for decades, have added to this but in a more helpful evolutionary way. Ultimately greater changes, an expansion of conscious awareness, assisted by mass communication and technology along the way, will benefit the earth and its people. This is how I see the outcome of this, but not for several years. Meanwhile we have the next thirty days to examine.
5eptember 1st the Labor Day moon into Sagittarius is a philosophical moon
that activates desires for self improvement, inspires intellectual matters., and ignites a certain restless desire mode.
Sept 2nd Mercury slides into Libra, the negotiating sign, bringing its
changeover moments, then later on in the evening a moon square to Neptune, might bring in some confusion, with messages deleted, emails not returned. Better to schedule a break time for yourself, away from contentious persons and perhaps even the tech gods of tech.
September 4th and 5th, stability arrives along with the Capricorn moon, the business moon, and since we’ve now arrived in the month of Virgo’s high organization, why not take advantage of the nice line up to the Virgo Sun which is friendly to powerhouse Pluto. Make plans, do your admin work, it’s a great time for it. All is not entirely perfect however, since the feeling and emotive areas have to take a back seat with that square from Mercury to the moon and then to Saturn. Sometimes these communication obstacles can be turned into positives when one can actually use the challenge to their benefit .
September 5-7th Another shift in the cosmos/mind occurs when Venus moves over into Virgo, lending a hand, or an orb maybe? to your desk and organization center. This might even be in the kitchen since Virgo is the nutritional healer, and Chiron, the famous wounded healer, faces directly across the sky from here, adding to the rumble of emotions stirred by the approaching moon.
Sept 8th The Harvest Full moon, 6:38 pm pdt. is a hugely visible "super moon" termed "perigee", with its close proximity to the earth.
The emotional and usually compassionate Moon in Pisces now floats across from the practical Virgo Sun, both of which are anchored by the stabilizing influence of Saturn. I’m fairly optimistic about this moment, although certain precarious world events would greatly temper what is meant by positive.
The Vedic meaning of this subsection of Pisces, Purvabadrapada, carries some darker descriptions, but then look at what the world is facing and in
searching for answers in the charts of world leaders, Putin and Obama for example, are not bringing up any cheerful news to my astrological eye.
Full moons tend to accent matters in unusual ways, with all cards laid out on the table, and here with Mercury conflicted to Pluto, it certainly makes for intense discussions and arguments. Venus here opposite Neptune can also elevate the fantastical "I wish" component, that can also include the spiritual element. "I wonder, I wish" could the world’s religious leaders possibly unite at a world parliament of faiths and send out a joint call to all its vast congregations and followers ?
September 9, 10th , An Aries moon arrives to change up the energy, especially around noon on Tuesday pacific time. The Arian lunar fire leans into Wednesday and so many exact connections are ignited here, making for a large newsworthy day up until 6 pm. Then the void moon would tell a wise person to step back, and go within to assess the day’s events, all the way through to 6:15pm the next day. Thursday will certainly be a recovery day from the previous one. I wouldn’t expect too much here.
September 12- 14th , the Taurus moon moves across the sky to harmonize with Venus, Neptune, Pluto. It’s a happier day, and a good time with all these earth trines to launch a project, sign a deal, well you know how that goes. And then Saturday Mars travels into Sagittarius and an entirely new energy lights our path. Mars remains here in its most adventurous place until the very end of October. The desire for travel, exploration of new ideas and places are all enhanced with the addition of the Gemini moon.
Into Saturday there is a slight bump when Mercury and Uranus face off, sparking tensions, and all of this is tied in with the nodes so we pay attention
and hope the talkative Gemini moon will produce some answers. Sunday we’re still in a partial haze although very early on Venus harmonizes with Pluto, who when he is good, he is very very good, and late day the moon and Jupiter are connecting in a positive sextile to smooth the way into Monday, a chatty and friendly communicative day for sure.
September 16th- 17th Tuesday’s Cancer moon is welcome for more insights and assemblage of the prior day’s happenings. The Sun in these degrees of Virgo in the Vedic astrology world is connected to a comfort and beautification of the home, a designer’s delight world, and the aspects right here merely emphasize what the Sun is saying. Check out the new mattress, the couch, the fabric. It’s a calming day, why not work on your nest and rest.
September 18-19st The Leo moon lines up perfectly to the nice fire triplicity of Jupiter and Uranus, here it adds fire and warmth to projects and ideas.
September 20-22nd The news here is intriguing because this exact square from Mars to Neptune can create a mist of delusion, where the forest and the trees don’t match up. It calls for careful analysis and don’t bet your paycheck on that tip you heard about. This aspect stays around and moves into the new moon.
The brighter note is Venus and Saturn’s sextile adding some balance to these
September 24, 25th With this new moon in early Libra, Pluto moves into direct motion but it squares the sun and moon, creating some friction over power over and for whom. Hopefully the exact between Jupiter trine Uranus, will bring an uplifting sort of dynamism. This could set the stage for an inspiring beginning to the holy days of the Jewish New year starting tonight. And of course any emphasis in Libra will have to with relationships and connections.
September 26-28th Oh the Scorpio moon has returned, and if you want intensity here it is, sidling up to Saturn in Scorpio. This deep water moon would tend to evoke the deepest of feelings and fears, but with Saturn there, theses avenues might be shut down temporarily and take form in some very pragmatic way instead.
September 29, 30th Mercury begins its trek through Scorpio, Venus shifts into her own sign of Libra and the month ends with a Sagittarian moon. Now we have four planets in the fire party, which will certainly raise the energy levels as we head into the early days of October, which promise to be intense. As they say, keep your powder dry.
DAYS OF POWER: 2, 4!, 6, 8!!, 10, 12,21, 24, 25, 27, 29!
