September Astro Babble ~ Your Personal Horoscope Included!
“What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action.”
Can you believe it’s almost Fall? After the intense Astro energy of the Summer—eclipses, retrogrades and planetary conflicts—I’m happy to say that September offers smoother sailing! (A part of the reprieve is there are no “personal” planets in retrograde until October.)
The Autumnal Equinox on September 22 ushers in a quieter, more introspective time, as the symbolic light gives way to dark. September is a transitional month, as we look for new balances in our life. It is also traditionally known as a time of Harvest, when we reap the benefits of seeds sown, and give thanks for all the abundance we have experienced.
Your September Horoscope:
Aries: With Mars, your ruling planet, finishing it’s two month-long retrograde, expect to feel newly energized as past inertia gives way to getting things done. You’ll want to be mindful about your work/life balance, however. Ride the momentum, but make sure you’re taking time nurture yourself, especially spiritually. Progress is great, but only if your endeavors contribute to your overall sense of well-being. You’ve learned that it’s essential to keep a balance of: #BodyMindAndSpirit
Taurus: September’s planets offer plenty of good, grounded, nurturing juju-- just what the doctor ordered! Now, you just need to be open to receiving it. Look for friends and lovers, partners and associates to reach out and offer what you need the most (but may have never asked for). There may be an unexpected element, so if you don’t like surprises, consider this--the Universe sometimes has to catch you off-guard to help you get out of your own way. #Surprise!
Gemini: If planets were people (work with me here) yours would be taking a big sigh of relief, realizing that a whole lot of cosmic drama is over. So, take a deep breath and give-in to the real possibility that you’re getting a wee break from the all the chaos. The question lies: What are you going to do with this moment of peace? I would suggest some mindful regrouping and digging into some projects that you haven’t had previous time for. Be selfish! #DoNotDisturb
Cancer: You’re getting some cosmic love this month, so shake off all the summer craziness, and dig into a new feeling of life being just fine. Consider it a reward for all of your hard work around creating meaningful boundaries. Okay, “fine” isn’t perfect, but neither is life. You have learned the power of discernment; to pick your battles and where and with whom to invest your energy. P.S. your big cosmic love moments are most powerful around Sept 6th-9th. #SerenityNow
Leo: Although you do love a bit of drama, the last few months have been extraordinary, taking you beyond your “normal” parameters. (Normal is in quotes, because, not much is really normal anymore, especially with all the changes you have been through.) September offers some ease, and new perspective, especially regarding how you relate to security—financially and spiritually. Trusting yourself and investing in a bigger future, is your #NewNormal
Virgo: September’s New Moon in your sign is a cosmic gateway into new possibilities. Okay, gateway is an interesting term, one worth ruminating on, so let me offer some definition via: gate, n—entrance, conduit, passage, door, means of access. This month is a time for some risk-taking. To boldly step into your future, knowing that the Universe has your back. If this means letting go of old stuff, and trusting in a force greater than yourself, then do so. #Believer
Libra: Like Alice-In-Wonderland, this month, you may feel like you’re falling through the Rabbit Hole! With Mercury and the New Moon alighting your house of dreams, the unconscious and deeper psyche, you may be wondering what’s real and what’s not. In an imaginary-sense it’s all real. Give yourself permission to play in the fields of fantasy, the sacred place of muses and inspiration. You are capturing dreams that will lead you to your future! #JustFollowTheWhiteRabbit
Scorpio: Hey Scorpio, ready for a breather? Sure, there’s always plenty to do, but this month is a time to consider a new flow. One that is more organic, less-forced and more in-touch with your inner-rhythms. You don’t need to slack-off from your forward movement--no indeed!--you just need to find more balance. If this sounds like an advertisement for yoga retreats, organic foods and meditation websites, then so be it! Wherever you can find a more: #MindfulGroove
Sagittarius: Your stars this month, are sending conflicting messages. What else is new, you may ask? Time for a reframe, one based on the ancient secrets of alchemy. Instead of seeing the divergent, and conflicting elements in your life, embrace them as different aspects of yourself that need to be integrated. Alchemy is the process of turning lead into gold, and comes from finding a harmonious balance of opposites. Clarity comes in the #MiddlePath
Capricorn: Expect some BIG relief as Saturn, your ruling planet, in your sign, ends its 4+ month retrograde! Question: What were you doing back in mid-April? I ask because this was the time Saturn went retrograde. Consider your journey from then until now. I have a feeling it will be quite illuminating. Then, look forward to another full circle, turning point, as transformative Pluto, again in your sign, ends its 4+ month retrograde at month’s end! #Hallelujah
Aquarius: If you feel like you’ve been swimming through mud the last few months, know that this has been the cosmic condition—hello retrogrades! But, because you are especially in-tune with the universal zeitgeist, this has affected you more than most--personally, and in a deeply intimate way. September offers more ease and movement. Also a reminder to you, oh-so-clever-one, you don’t always need to figure everything out—just stay open. #WhoAmIToBlowAgainstTheWind
Pisces: Gazing upon your stars, I’m seeing different pathways and opportunities. September is a time of discernment and choices. To use Winnie-the-Pooh as a teaching moment, decide which character you will play. Are you in-the-moment Pooh? Gloomy Eeyore? Hyper-excited Tigger? Wise Owl or lovely, sensitive Piglet? Each character is a different aspect of your being. Each offers a different context to your experience. You are creating your story now. #ZenOfPooh
