Another turn of the wheel and we leave behind the lighthearted and relaxed days of Summer and head into the Autumn to begin to “harvest” what we have “planted” in the Spring.
During the first part of the month with the Sun in Virgo and six other planets in Earth signs, we will feel the need to get grounded and to think about our day to day routine. The first part of the month is also great for getting organized, for clearing out the clutter from your home or your mind and for making sure your routine leaves time for self-care. Our health is on Virgo’s list and now is perfect time to start that exercise/diet program you’ve been putting off. Virgo will help you get motivated. Earth energy likes to keep things practical and simple, so be realistic when it comes to your goals and what it is that you want to get done. Remember, this is not a time for dreaming it is a time for doing and taking action.
The Virgo New Moon occurred at the end of August and that energy has spilled into the new month. Now that you’ve plucked that wheat the Virgo is known for holding, how are you going to use it? This is the time to attend to the little details, to take care of the earthy, practical phases of life.
The beginning of the month has some challenging transits that make staying focused not so easy. Particularly the Sun opposite Neptune transit on Sept. 10 can make you feel directionless. Seeing what you want is very difficult, much less creating a goal and working toward accomplishing it. And the Mars square Jupiter transit on Sept. 12 can make you reckless. You want to experience more and grow as a result, but this becomes somewhat challenging during this transit.
The Full Moon in Pisces on Sept. 14 during the season of earthy, no-nonsense Virgo means that your creativity must be directed and channeled. Pisces energy can sometimes dissipate itself by over-commitment to too many projects. Fortunately, Virgo will help you focus, to commit and to begin to bring those heaven-inspired dreams down to earth. Every Full Moon in the monthly cycle is a time for culmination.
That same day a strong dose of Libra energy is in the sky with both Mercury and Venus moving into that sign. Libra signifies balance so in our matters of love and communication, we’re offered an opportunity to find a sense of equilibrium. This is important, because analytical Virgo energy can turn neurotic or anxious without the kind of counterweight Libra provides. Between Libra and Virgo, there are several planetary aspects throughout September that challenge us to reevaluate our fantasy world and bring a sense of grounding to our dreams.
After a little over four months retrograde, Saturn will finally go direct in Capricorn on Sept. 18. This is the momentum you need to focus and finally tackle any projects you’ve been procrastinating on. Unresolved issues will feel settled, allowing you to move forward. Anything you’ve learned in the past few months can now be put into practice. Saturn turning direct is a pivotal moment as now it will march on forward towards Pluto without any interruptions. The alignment of Saturn and Pluto will happen in January 2020 but we will start to feel it towards the end of this year. This is a deeply transformative alignment that will bring a lot of energy for us to work with on both a personal and global level. I’ll have more information later in the year.
Sept. 21 then brings the final meeting of the Jupiter/Neptune Square. This transit occurred three times this year. As they approach their final meeting, a new truth may be revealed or we may find that things were not what they seemed. While this could be challenging, we will feel more confident in making plans, trusting our intuition, and moving forward.
The Autumn Equinox on the Sept. 23 heralds in the second half of the year and we take stock of the balance or lack of in our lives. The Libra Sun encourages harmony between the individual self and the shared self. While in Libra, the Sun urges us to find the balance between remaining true to who we are even in a relationship, practice objectivity and be reminded that we are creatures who flourish when making connections with others.
We end the month with the New Moon in Libra on Sept. 28, which will help us to integrate the lessons the month has brought our way. All through September, we were being encouraged to get organized, to clear the clutter and to rework our schedules. We will be able to take all we have discovered and learned and integrate it in a way that brings ease and balance into our lives.
