Well, we survived the Summer of the Retrogrades. At one point we had 6 planets in retrograde motion and I am sure none of us escaped without a hit or two. And let’s not forget those eclipses. But that’s behind us now as we look forward to September. Don’t expect to feel immediately lighter, it will happen, but it will take a few weeks for the retrograde “fog” to completely lift. Now is our month to clean up and tidy up all the energetic baggage we have been dealing with. It is a month to get organized and to sort through all that has been removed and all that has been left behind.
August certainly packed a punch and I’m sure left many of us reeling. Between Mercury retrograde and the Eclipses, a lot of information was thrown at us. This month, we get the chance to breathe and make sense of it all. The atmosphere in general during this time of year is of getting ready. Autumn begins this month and “winter is coming” (forgive me George R.R. Martin). Now we harvest what we started in Aries and analytical, discerning Virgo is here to help with that task.
