September Astrology 2018
September begins on a Saturday with 6 planets in earth signs. It is a holiday weekend in the USA, and having time to get grounded is what it is all about. The moon floating through Taurus with Uranus in Taurus, trine Saturn in Capricorn brings to the forefront the joy of spending time outdoors connecting with the earth. The north node of the moon (and the planet that is ruling it) represents where we can cultivate the most growth. Every month for the last 17 months spirit has been nudging us to listen and follow our heart about different areas of life. This will shift in November and be quite different. However for the next 2 months the hearts wisdom is ready to be heard. This month it is around work that has meaning, purpose and serves a higher purpose. Sometimes that higher purpose is to have a paycheck in order to be able to do something else that is meaningful such as pursuing a hobby you are passionate about or taking care of family.
Saturn moves direct September 6th ready to retrace its path since it went retrograde in April. This is good news for anyone seeking new employment or is seeking clarity and resolution of a situation that began as early as January 2018. We continue to have the harmonious aspect between Saturn and Uranus helping to change situations with ease. Not all of the planets are in total agreement however, Sun is opposite Neptune and Venus is square Mars. What situation in your life are you not seeing clearly or uncertain about? Is there conflict between what you want to have or do and your will or motivation to do it?
The new moon in Virgo on September 9th is a message to see the divine in everyday life. The image from the Virgo new moon is of four people stretching to complete a circle holding hands, yet there are two missing links to compete the circle. The Virgo new moon is holding hands with Scorpio, which is connected to Pluto, which is connect to Neptune. The outer planet Neptune is opposite the new moon. Neptune is passing its wisdom of universal oneness and consciousness to Pluto, who is passing its knowing that there is no death only change to Jupiter which is passing its wisdom of having faith to the Virgo new moon.
You will be able to manifest incredible miracles in your life with this Virgo new moon through allowing the wisdom of the planetary archetypes to come into your sacred circle as you meditate. Mars is at the very last degree of industrious Capricorn, the will and motivation to carry through your intentions can be helped with concentrated effort.
The sun enters Libra on the 22nd of September marking the equinox across the globe. An undercurrent of rumbling and stirring that is the precursor announcing change is on the way. The realization that fairness, harmony and right relationships are a non-negotiable requirement for peace and harmony is the cosmic message for the next four weeks.
Monday the 24th is the day of the Aries full moon, yet you will feel the energy building from the Libra equinox on Saturday through the weekend. Saturn in Capricorn is creating tension with the full moon as it is at the 90 degree angle to the full moon. This is a stress aspect that pushes us to evaluate with a serious look to know whether or not the relationships in our life support the essential part of who we are or if there is a pull that takes us off the path that is leading to our highest good.
The centaurs, (Chiron, Phollus, Nessus) have the task of gathering wisdom from outside of Saturn, the boundary of our material world, and delivering higher consciousness back to humanity. Chiron is activated in the Aries full moon with Chiron at 0 degrees of Aries conjunct the moon at 2 degrees and opposite the sun at 2 degrees Libra. For centuries the astrologers regarded the ruling planet of the full moon as the planet that would have the most importance for the two weeks following the new moon. Which would then revert to whatever planet would be ruling the new moon. The Aries full moon is ruled by Mars in Aquarius which is conjunct the south node applying to a square to Venus who is slowing down before she moves retrograde. What all this means is trouble in paradise if your relationships have cracks in the foundation. Mars in Aquarius conjunct the south node can imply that friends from the past reenter your life. Since Chiron is activated, old lovers from past relationships that didn’t end so well could creep back into your life to release the negative feelings and finally feel healed. If you know your chart, and know the houses that Mars rules that part of your life will have something come up. For example if Mars rules your 10th house of career, then a job or position that you applied for in the past but didn’t get can open up again. The tension or conflict would surface as whether or not you want to make the effort of updating your resume and interviewing or just let it go by and stay where you are.
September ends with Pluto moving direct at 18 degrees of Capricorn. When a planet is stationed to move direct it is at its most powerful day of the year. You can capture the essence of the gifts of Pluto now. Pluto gives us the ability to concentrate completely and fully until the desired result is achieved. It enables us to go deep into a subject to reveal truths that had been hidden. Great composers, artists, writers, scientists, athletes, and inventors have strong Pluto’s or were under strong Pluto influences when some of their best accomplishments were achieved. This can be a day that you discover a secret from your family’s history, or have a profound meditation experience. The last weekend of September with the moon in Gemini and Pluto stationed direct is truly a transformative weekend where information from the cosmos is downloaded to create shifts in thinking. Weekend seminars, meditation retreats, shamanic workshops will all have the cosmic support to allow for major shifts in consciousness. For an everyday ordinary weekend it is a time of insightful communications with friends and/or weekend trips that let your mind get away from the routine of life.

September 2017 Astrology
Mercury direct with the Pisces Full Moon and Neptune Flooding our Emotions
When you were a child, did you ever spin in a circle and whirl around and around until you you’re your balance and fell down in a dizzy state giggling and uncertain of which direction you are facing? September is a whirling dervish time and what you thought was up is down and what was east is west.
The month begins with a burning intensity to get to the core of meaning and activate a plan that will empower you to have the life you want. It may include a tough conversation with a person that wants to relate to you as who you used to be rather than in supporting you in your personal growth and transformation. No fear; mars conjunct Mercury at the degree of the August solar eclipse will provide the needed encouragement to speak your mind.
Mercury moves direct on the 5th at the same degree as the powerful solar eclipse of August, hours after Mars entered hard working, get to it Virgo. Work, school, projects left to the side are now picking up steam to get things accomplished. However Venus is still lingering in fun loving let’s play Leo clinging on the last days of summer (or anticipating spring) and the full moon in Pisces is wrapped in a cloud of Neptune confusion and idealism.
The full moon in Pisces is a very special day…. The connection of the archetype of Virgo as selfless service and Pisces surrender to a deeper purpose and meaning is the strongest time of the year for us to go deeply within to the chamber of ones heart to realize the illusion of separateness we have that has created suffering and pain. This is a time of doing deep shadow work to once again reorient your life where the practical side of your everyday life eliminates fear and allows you to be in the moment of what is required in everyday experiences. Those impacted by the hurricane in Texas are directly experiencing the Virgo/Pisces axis, helping and being helped.
The Virgo new moon is connected to the planet Uranus nudging us to take a step towards whatever was revealed at the full moon. What will support you to have a life that is more of a reflection of who you are now and what you want to contribute to the world? Mercury is now at the same place the sun was on the day of the full moon and exactly opposite Neptune. This combination can manifest as the chatter of societies restrictions and norms appear in many places, do this, you must do that, you will be a failure if you don’t, in order to succeed the latest model of this is required and on and on it goes weaving a story filled with deception and lies.
Chiron and Jupiter are also configured with the new moon along with the obvious Uranus aspect. The position of these planets in relationship to the sun and moon are signifying that through the pain of situations or the past is the avenue that leads you to freedom. It is an alchemical mixture from which acknowledging the untruths that surround you, either represented in big or little things that we say to ourselves about why not to change can keep you glued to your old life or free you to move on.
A few days later the equinox is upon us with Mars now under the rays of Neptune. The ancients paid close attention to the planetary alignment of the eclipses, solstices, and equinoxes to glean insight for what the astrological weather would be for the next months. Mars with Neptune suggests it is a good time for active meditation practices; whether it is hatha yoga, martial arts, tai chi, or simply being mindful that your actions are in alignment with your spiritual principles.
The month completes with Pluto stationed direct, (read strong time of empowerment and intuitive knowledge) the same day that Jupiter is opposite Uranus opening the door to our self-imposed cage.
The Jupiter Uranus opposition reflects back to the conjunction in 2010. We are now at the full phase reflecting on how well we as an individual or a society have integrated the ability to follow ones unique path that moves us to be more compassionate towards others.
2016 September New Moon Solar Eclipse
Astrology has two main purposes, one is to give us a heads up of what to expect and the second is how best to dance with what is before us, or in other words how to make the best out of the planetary energies that are swirling around us.
We step into September the day of the solar eclipse. This eclipse is quite powerful as it is combined with the Neptune Saturn square. (A conflict between giving up or keep on keeping on.) On a personal level this can contribute to feelings of being overwhelmed or scattered if you have made too many promises at your work or to other people in your life that you want to help.
The new moon closely connected to Neptune and Saturn on a global scale suggests there is something fishy going on with the oil industry, water, and medicine. Since the new moon is opposite Neptune the exact nature of the misgivings is hard to decipher since the nature of Neptune hides and obfuscates. Issues that come to mind are the fracking problems, graver water concerns happening that authorities don’t want us to know about and problems with the health industry and medical field. Events regarding these issues will float across the news channels.
Another major influence that greets us is Mercury retrograde in Virgo. Mercury is with Jupiter giving a helping hand to the generic retro checklist. September promises to be a very active month, it will be easy to have a pile of missed emails, bills, and general to do items over looked. In a perfect world if we could take the three weeks Mercury is retrograde in September it would be a great time to reorganize your home, car, and office surroundings along with stepping back into a healthy routine.
Mercury was retrograde at the first of this year, when ideals of new starts and accomplishments were fresh in the heart and mind. September brings back to the forefront some of the good intentions that you had at the first of the year.
New moons are always a good day for manifestation and visualization. The new moon in Virgo is exceptionally powerful for setting forth your intentions for what you want in your career and health.
September rushes in with the moon in Sagittarius and Mercury at the last degree of Virgo, suggesting much to do and little time to think about it.
Venus leaves fun loving Leo and enters the more serious practical Virgo on the 5th.
Jupiter and Pluto are connected in such a way that demands making adjustments to big dreams that go back to late 2007. Dreams and desires have been challenged and now it a time to look at the road map you have for your life’s path and see if you are still heading towards where you want to be.
The full moon on the 8th will be felt building throughout the weekend. The last few months the universe has been asking us to acknowledge and move beyond where we have been excluded in life. The need to get over the hurt and anger of being marginalized or dismissed has been highlighted with Eris, the goddess of discord, having prominent placement in the recent charts. This is not to condone the actions of others who in their prejudice have been mean or cruel, but to leave the rage behind to focus your energy on moving your life forward in purpose.

The new moon in Virgo, (August 25th) culminating with the full moon in Pisces highlights Chiron, the aspect of your life of moving beyond the wounds. First is the inner awareness and intellectual understanding of the wound. Contemplate where in your life you feel stuck, that no matter what you do something does not change or get better. It can be around your career, relationships, education, or finances. Herein lies the clue that buried deep within somewhere along the way in life there was an event that happened and you made a decision that is still holding you back from what you say you want different. This is seen by Mercury, the messenger, in the new moon chart opposite Chiron; at the full moon the Moon is conjunct, (with) Chiron, opposite the sun. The emotional cost of what happened comes to the surface to be released. The Libra ingress chart has the moon at the same degree that the sun was
When we are working with the energy of Chiron, the important aspect is to find the gift
from the trials and tribulations of life. Such as where you have been hurt or disadvantaged from situations that were inherent in your upbringing, from another person, or occurrences that were beyond your control.
Mars enters Sagittarius on the 13th lending enthusiastic and hopeful thoughts to what we are wanting to do. Mars is traditionally called the warrior planet, yet mars is our will and determination and motivation. As Mars moves into Sagittarius motivation can begin with much enthusiasm then be thwarted when obstacles or hard work gets in the way of the goal.
The sun enters Libra on the 22nd, the same day that Pluto is stationed direct. The Libra ingress chart therefore is infused with the intensity of Pluto, deep passion will be stirred over issues that are in the realm of justice, fairness, and relationships. The Libra new moon on the 24th at 1 degree lends to the urgency to move forward quickly with bringing into balance fairness and peace whether in your personal life, inner life, work arena, or in the world at large.
The month conclude with Venus leaving Virgo and entering into Libra, the sign it rules. Venus in Libra ruling the new moon and the north node suggest it is in our interest to look at our personal relationships and determine if they align with our core values.
Have a great September, it promises to be busy and full.
