September is going to be quite a busy month with the cosmos throwing a lot of energy out there. I do feel that between the more challenging energies there will be a calmness that feels quite grounding. But there’s many twists and turns and even surprises coming. The energies during Eclipse Season can feel a bit hectic and somewhat even crazy at times. The Universe is handing out some pretty cool Ah-Ha moments this month, this can bring you clarity and answers that will help you navigate some of this wild energy. The cosmos will also usher in some serious Luck! Woo-Hoo! Now who isn’t excited about that?
This is Eclipse Season so we’re in for some major changes as there’s big shifts and turns ahead. Eclipses always create an exciting kind of vibe that can feel chaotic. It seems many of you will experience several changes at once, but that is not always the case. It’s exciting to think about the new chapters that are being written for you, and the closure some of you will finally get. Being smack dab right in the middle of the Solar Eclipse that occurred on the 1st and the upcoming Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on the 16th, means that we are in the most transformational part right now, September 4th through the 16th.
Expect some powerful endings and new beginnings as always during Eclipse Season. People from your past might randomly pop up in one way or another over the next 4 weeks, and at one time these folks might have had some serious pull over you or strong influence, but they could actually assist you with your career in some way now. So pay attention and just understand there’s a reason if someone does show up, but that doesn’t mean you have to be around them again, it may just simply be a reminder of some kind. Remember people are like mirrors to each other and the reflection is always enlightening.
The past usually comes around to teach us something, and it being Eclipse time and Mercury in Retrograde through the 22nd, the past will come around for a reason, because that’s what we are supposed to be doing now, revisiting and reviewing parts of our lives so that we can move forward into our future. It’s time to reconnect to someone or something. It is not a good time however to start anything brand new! Usually our perspective will have changed after Mercury is out of Retrograde, and any new project or situation may not be as appealing. This is just one of the strong astrological aspects happening this month, but it sure affects us! Here’s a closer look at the other energies coming in during the month of September.
September Astro Highlights
SEPTEMBER 1st-4th, SOLAR ECLIPSE
September certainly came in with a bang with Mercury in Retrograde and the Solar Eclipse in Virgo on the 1st! So even though new opportunities are presenting themselves, do expect delays and miscommunications because of the Retrograde through the end of September. You may feel wired for sound one minute and simply exhausted the next, especially during the first week of September since the Solar Eclipse energy has been at its highest point already, but that energy lingers on. And you will feel it again around the 13th, when the build up to the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse starts to get intense.
September 9th, Jupiter enters Libra
There’s another big week ahead starting on September 9th, when the great benefactor, Jupiter, moves out of Virgo and into the sign of Libra, and with it brings great opportunities for all of us, no matter what your sign may be! This influence will bring about positive changes, as it helps bring folks together. There will probably be a record number of marriages and relationship commitments made, and business partnerships under this influence between September 9th, 2016 and October 10th, 2017. So wherever Jupiter happens to fall in your own personal Astrology Chart, is where you’ll experience the most good luck and possible fortune or even fame. This energy can give out some serious abundance.
September 10th – Saturn Neptune Square
This one might be quite difficult for many of you. This energy can bring problems, disagreements, and chaotic situations that just suddenly pop out of nowhere. It’s best to lay low for the week of the 5th through the 11th, especially around your career and any financial dealings, and with Mercury in Retrograde, yea keep by the book, play by the rules and stick to taking care of your responsibilities during this time, and not try to push anything. Don’t believe everything you see, read, or that is said during this time, as this energy is truly the illusions we perceive being busted out by reality! These lessons can get right up in your face if you don’t choose to take care of business, so it’s best to deal with the truth of the matter immediately while you still have a chance to balance out any Karmic Debt you may have.
SEPTEMBER 16th – LUNAR ECLIPSE
Then there is the September Full Moon in sensitive, healing Pisces. Ok I’m not going to sugar coat this one, it’s going to be very strong, and potent energy! I feel this Eclipse will bring about more challenges than the Solar Eclipse did, simply because a Full Moon is actually a challenging energy between the Sun and Moon anyway. But also because it’s an Eclipse and it’s in Pisces. Pisces folks are known for being very sensitive, because they are ruled by their spirit more so than their physical body. Therefore a Pisces Full Moon can plug all of us into the energies that be, and the veils between the physical world and spiritual realms dissolve. As these boundaries come down, we must make sure to “shield” ourselves spiritually and physically. We become very vulnerable in this energy. It’s very easy for those of us with an empathic nature to pickup on others issues and emotions, and struggle to differentiate whose feelings we are picking up on, and if they are own or someone else’s.
This Full Moon being an Eclipse can bring on sudden breakups, and create endings very quickly in things like our jobs, relationships, and really in any area of one’s life. These Eclipses are also seen as exit points or transitional gateways over to the other side. So often we seem to lose some very well-loved members of the human race during this time, just like Gene Wilder for example…just last week. He clearly was loved by so many!
Things usually get intense about 3 days prior to a Full Moon, as the Moon’s energy builds up to become Full. And with this one being an Eclipse, things can get intense! You might feel like you can’t take the pressure, and for some this means acting badly or going a little crazy! Pay attention to your surroundings and just stay clear of anyone who causes drama, don’t allow these folks to pull you into their madness. It’s too scary in that space to join them, stay focused on creating peace with the Pisces Full Moon. And don’t forget to “Set Intentions” more so focused on letting go and releasing what you no longer want or what isn’t serving you anymore.
SEPTEMBER FALL EQUINOX
On the 22nd we celebrate the Fall Equinox as the Sun moves out of Virgo and into Libra. You might have noticed how focused you have been on the details and maybe even a little over-analytical over this last month, but the energies will shift and you will quickly become more focused on creating harmony and balance in your life, especially around your everyday routines and your relationships. Also this is the glorious day that Mercury goes forward again, and out of its Retrograde cycle, but don’t get to excited as it will take a few more weeks after the 22nd for Mercury to stop affecting our way of thinking and really get moving up to its normal speed again.
SEPTEMBER 26th-30th – PLUTO GOES DIRECT, NEW MOON
September will come to a close in a more harmonious way. Pluto the planet of transformation and personal power will finally move forward again on the 26th. Pluto has been in Retrograde since April, so all of you have learned in one way or another how to take your power back by now, in some area of your life. You might have experienced a situation that pushed you into standing up for yourself. This should have helped you feel more confident and empowered.
So as this energy starts to move forward again, so can you! The month of September ends with a New Moon, but this time in Libra. This is a great time to find new romance, love or business partnerships, and you can rekindle old flames as well. It can certainly assist you in creating a new peaceful energy.
So there ya go, all of September’s aspects, it’s going to be interesting and no matter what part of September’s energies affect you the most, it’s sure to be an eye-opening experience. Happy September!
