Happy Fall! Hello, Roller Coaster of Life! We have a Very Full Month ahead with a Mercury Retrograde, Venus going Direct, Saturn moving into Sagittarius, the powerful Autumn Equinox and…both a Solar and Lunar Eclipse!
What does this all mean? In a word: Change! This is a moment to be flexible, to be open to new ideas, ways of doing things and moving through life. There’s tremendous opportunity now to expand and transform, but to do so, it will definitely take you outside your comfort zones! And with the current planetary climate change could come in unexpected, surprisingly fruitful and even karmic/synchronistic ways. Time to let go of the past; all the better to free you to experience the new, evolving energy!
September Astro Events
Mercury Retrograde : This Mercury Retrograde (September 17th through October 9th) is in the sign of Libra, highlighting the realm of relationships, the cosmic dance between self and others. Libra also rules balance, fairness and justice. This MR points to a period of rebalancing aspects of your life that aren’t currently in alignment.
Venus goes Direct in Leo: After almost two months in retrograde, loving, relational Venus goes forward in Leo. Expect a new burst of creative loving energy that is best directed toward quiet power and gentle persuasion.
Saturn moves into Sagittarius: Saturn finally takes its hold in the sign of Sag on Sept 17th. This ushers in a new world climate—from Scorpio (deep, insular, emotional) into the more expansive, more social, more forward moving Sagittarius! Sag rules politics and the global picture, so it will be interesting to see how its reign unfolds with the upcoming elections. Trust me, there will be no stone unturned…
Autumnal Equinox: Sept 23rd: The official beginning of fall, when we start preparing for the long period of darkness that winter brings. Autumn is also a time of harvest where we celebrate and offer gratitude for the seeds that we have already sown. It’s a time of inner reflection and preparation, going within and taking stock and inventory of our lives.
Virgo New Moon/Partial Solar Eclipse, Sept 12th, 11:42pmPST: In the sign of Virgo, work and health will be a major focus on a personal level. This eclipse is about new beginnings regarding work, attention to detail, fitness, health regimes and daily life. Theme: Seeking Quality of Life.
Aries Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries, Sept 27, 7:50pmPST: Lunar Eclipses are powerful Full Moons that relate to endings, as the Moon passes through the deepest part of the Earth’s Shadow. If your looking for answers, this Moon may offer significant revelations. The Aries influence says it’s a powerful time to push forward where you need to go and make your individual mark on the world. Theme: Exploring the Unknown.
Your September Horoscope:
Aries: What’s it all about, Aries? With the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in your sign this month, combined with the Mercury Retrograde in your relationship sphere, you may feel a push-pull around your needs and others. Quality, not quantity is your theme. You’re looking for more value in all that you do, and this includes making a difference in the world, big and small. Commit and the rest will follow. #FeelingPurposeful
Taurus: Your Cosmic Secret Ingredient this month Taurus-- Creativity! This can be artistic, yes, but more specifically I’m referring to your inner-being, your imagination, your soul as creator, the part of you that desires to develop you’re unique gifts/talents in a meaningful way. Sound heady? It is, so be sure and throw some play into the equation. Playful exploration is key now! #AllWorkAndNoPlay
Gemini: Don’t fret the Mercury Retrograde, Gemini! Although it’s your ruling planet, and the energies do affect you more than most, this retrograde falls in your house of creativity and self-expression, giving you time to regroup on projects and forward direction. The area of your life most stimulated now is family, friends and relationships. There’s opportunity to work through old issues that have plagued you in the past! #ItsAllGood
Cancer: In the tradition of Native American lore, if I were to give you a “name” this month, Cancer, it would be: Truth Talker or He/She Who Speaks With Thunder Tongue! With a whole bunch of planets in your house of communication, this is a moment to communicate your truth. This may mean different things, different situations, but what’s important is that you communicate. Time to go outside your comfort zones. #TruthSpeaker
Leo: Money, baby! With both the New Moon/Solar Eclipse and expansive, good fortune Jupiter illuminating your house of money, fortune may come in unexpected ways—so be open! Remember, money is energy, and for you now it directly relates to your self-worth. Time to believe in yourself, and trust your heart and your passion. Your theme this month: Love what you do, do what you love! This is your Yellow Brick Road! #IBelieve
Virgo: Buckle your Cosmic Seat Belt Virgo! With Jupiter—the planet of opportunity and fortune—in your sign (for the next year), combined with the Virgo New Moon/Solar Eclipse, this is your time to go for it! Don’t over-worry about finances, there may be some give and take here, but what’s important is that you feel your self-expression is aligned with who you really are…on the deepest and most authentic levels. #HappyBirthdayToYou

Libra: Feel like Alice in Wonderland? This month, you may be wondering what’s real--and what’s not. Your realm of dreams and the subconscious is being stimulated big time, so expect bursts of inspirations that are both exciting and…unsettling. You’re being given the key to your imagination, let it you show you what’s possible. And if it doesn’t make sense, remember—it’s all just a dream! #FallingThroughThe
Scorpio: If you’re not feeling inspired this month, then there’s something off! (Quick definition Inspiration: The act or power of moving the intellect or emotions.) This is a time to consider what moves you and to start, yes, to move in that direction(s). If things get off to a slow start, blame it on the Mercury Retrograde! Don’t be discouraged; you’re constructing powerful frameworks for your future! #OneStepAtATime
Sagittarius: Not quite sure what to do with your stars this month, Sag! And maybe you feel the same, what to do with you? Blame it on the current planetary discombobulation! With Saturn going direct in your sign, stimulation in your family sphere, the mercury retrograde in your house of career…yadda yadda, blah blah…I say throw caution to the wind and go for it! Time to just be Y-O-U. No matter what! #CosmicHokeyPokey
Capricorn: In the immortal words of The King, this month your planets may have you feeling “All Shook Up!” (Fun astro fact: Elvis Presley was a Capricorn!) You’ll be feeling this most in the family arena, expect some drama and shake-ups here. Travel is also highlighted, especially to new continents! Don’t hesitate to book a trip, it could be the perfect remedy, an opportunity to “air your feathers” and let in new energy! #ShakeItOff
Aquarius: Your stars this month are illuminating the deepest parts of self, your very soul-being! With both the New Moon/Solar Eclipse and expansive Jupiter visiting your realm of Spiritual Awakenings, expect new, even profound revelations about what is important to you, and what you value. Be open to new discoveries, especially in the realm of learning, education, philosophy and writing. #SoulExploration
Pisces: Aaarrgh, Pisces! With planetary activity in your relationship sphere (hello New Moon/Lunar Eclipse!) you are doing some house cleaning, letting go of old dead weight that no longer serves you. This is especially true around business associations. This is a moment where money rules the game. Time to be a Bold Pirate and find your buried treasure! Release the past and experience new freedom! #ChannelingJackSparrow
