September 2021- Re-Organization of Priorities, The Past Returns, Divine Guidance and Mythological Insights
Welcome to September 2021! You have now made it to the 9th month of this challenging and volatile year. Congratulations! Pat yourself on the back and acknowledge the trials and joys that have led you to this time.
While the world is in a state of flux and chaos, I want to begin this month with an important message of gratitude and the value of being in the present moment.
I noticed that when I sat down to write this forecast, a wave of uncertainty and uneasiness accompanied me. Normally I never write when my mind is unclear or my feelings are all over the place. All this Virgo energy has me spent ( Virgo rules my 10th house of career, go figure, lol). Spirit however advised me to just BE with these feelings and instead of waiting for them to pass, to incorporate them into this forecast. This is real. This is raw. This is the authentic. Wherever you are currently at.. is where you need to be.
I want to start this September 2021 forecast with a simple meditation. Place your left + right hands over your heart. Slowly breathe in through your nose and slowly exhale out your mouth. Repeat this breath work a few times. Feel the power of your breath and the comfort and serenity of your heartbeat. There is infinite wonder and possibility within you. Do you feel the grounding effect of the awareness of your body and the miracle of your existence? This might seem very simple but in fact this is extraordinary. You didn't come to Earth to suffer or to feel like you are damn** if you do and damn** if you don't. You came to this Earth to remember how extraordinary and brilliant you truly are. There is nothing to fix or change. You are a walking and living miracle of abundance. Whenever you begin to feel overwhelmed, sad or confused by these changing + cray times we are living in, return back to this meditation.
The gift of September 2021 is inside of you. Nothing on the outside or no outer circumstance can disturb your inner peace unless you allow it. Healthy boundaries with an open heart is what this next month is requesting from you. September 2021 wants to remind you of the love of mother Gaia that lies within your heart and the access that you always have to this comfort and wisdom.
Let's start at the beginning of the month which is quite action packed and emotional in nature.
On September 2nd, Mars, the planet of action, aggression and passion, who is currently in the sign of Virgo, makes a 180 degree opposition to retrograde Neptune, the planet of dreams, imagination and our subconscious mind, who is currently in her home sign of Pisces. Mars in Virgo opposing retrograde Neptune in Pisces will produce feelings of critical passion mixed with confusion and flights of fanatical thinking. These two planets are quite different in nature so their combination could feel quite like a mixed bag of energies. Mars is about movement and Neptune is about contemplation. The lower vibration of these two planets together could produce extreme analysis and action along with illusory thinking and in extreme cases paranoia. This could have to do with our health and wellbeing and our subconscious patterns since Virgo rules the 6th house of health and wellness and Pisces rules the 12th house of our hidden fears. The higher vibration of these two planets together could produce action and movement around our health and wellbeing connected to our spiritual mission and desire to be of service to others. Utilizing the higher vibration around this aspect would be to enhance our understanding of our bodies around a particular chronic health condition or wellness goal + the surrender of having to control it and giving it up to divine to guide and lead our efforts.
On September 5th, Venus, the planet of love, beauty and harmony, who is currently in her sign of exaltation Libra will be making a tense square( 90 degree aspect) with retrograde Pluto, the planet of power, destruction and transformation, who is currently in the sign of Capricorn. Venus in Libra in a tense dance with retrograde Pluto in Capricorn will bring on the intense feelings connected to our relationships, money and sense of control. Being that both Libra and Capricorn are cardinal signs will create a dynamic of trying to determine who will lead and be the boss. This aspect will be most felt in our personal and business relationships. A tug of war between what is fair and equal and who is in control or not in control will be the big themes. The higher vibration of this aspect will be the rediscovery of making sure we set healthy boundaries with others around matters connected to those mentioned themes( money, love, ideals) and the recognition of our inner power and tenacity to face disagreements with grace and tact. Not an easy feat lol, but with practice, this aspect could finally see many folks have a breakthrough around how they give their power away and how they ultimately learn their own inner worth and respect.
On September 6th, we have the beautiful and encouraging New Moon at 14 degrees of Virgo. New Moons are a time to wipe the slate clean and to begin again, refreshed, rejuvenated and with a new set of eyes + intentions. Virgo, the 6th zodiac sign is known to be critical, intellectual, earth conscious, health conscious and organized. The New Moon in Virgo will be a time to get serious about our health and wellbeing( mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually). Since Virgo is an earth sign, this is the time of year to connect with Gaia on a deep and meaningful level. Coming back to the basics in an efficient and thoughtful way will be the theme of this grounded New Moon. Since Mercury the planet of the mind and communication rules the sign of Virgo, this is also a great time to begin any form of communication or business contract that encourages intellectual mastery and prowess. The New Moon in Virgo wants to grant us the ability to be in the moment with life and instead of resisting it.. to get to work and to be aware of motivations and intentions. At the time of this New Moon, Mars, the planet of action, aggression and passion in the sign of Virgo will be making a sexy trine ( 120 degree aspect) to Pluto, the planet of power, death/rebirth and regeneration, in the sign of Capricorn. Mars in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn will help motivate our plans with solid action and commitment and the ability to think and plan long term. This earthy duo will aid in the ability to get things done with a clear head and at the same time a passionate and determined heart!
Moving to mid- month, on September 20th, we have the emotional and ultra psychic Full Moon at 28 degrees of Pisces. Full Moons are always an extremely sensitive time where our feelings are heightened and extreme. They represent endings, culminations and manifestations. Pisces the 12th zodiac sign deals with our creativity, intuition, spirituality and the hidden psyche. The Full Moon in Pisces will be a time of our deepest feelings coming to the surface to be purged and cleansed. I always find that when we have this Full Moon every year, despite the different astrological aspects that are occurring, a lot of things from the depths of our subconscious mind come to the surface and this can be quite intense and emotional. The Full Moon in Pisces will heighten our psychic awareness and ability to have a 6th sense about matters that might seem unclear to others. This is a great time to do some journaling around our feelings, tapping into the power of our creativity and with accessing our past patterns of self sabotage and neglect. Anything hidden or suppressed will come to the surface with this powerful Full Moon. At the time of the full moon, Mercury, the planet of the mind and communication, who is currently in the sign of Libra will be making a harmonious trine (120 degree aspect) to retrograde Jupiter, the planet of abundance, luck and wisdom who is currently in the sign of Aquarius. Mercury in Libra in a beautiful dance to retrograde Jupiter in Aquarius will bring about our ability to think big and to dream beyond our current comfort zone. Many breakthroughs around business deals and contracts will be established at this time. This is also a good aspect to help with any kind of philosophical understanding or study and also good for travel. Some of these lucky breaks could be from the past as Mercury has already entered his pre-shadow retrograde period.
On September 23rd, the Sun, which represents our ego, life force and vitality leaves the sign of Virgo and moves into the air sign of Libra. Libra, the 7th zodiac sign deals with equality, commitment, peace and justice. The Sun happens to actually be pretty weak in the sign of Libra as it is exalted in the opposing sign of Aries. This could lead to some subdued energies connected to our ego and drive. The Sun in Libra wants to restore harmony and peaceful relationships for all. Beauty, art and music will also be highlighted at this time. A calming and comforting vibe will begin to take effect and many folks will be Uber focused on matters connected to commitment and contracts over these next 30 days.
Finally on September 26th, Mercury, as just mentioned, the planet of communication, the mind and contracts, currently in the sign of Libra will begin his backward jaunt as he turns retrograde in the sign of Libra until October 17th. Mercury retrograde in Libra will bring in all kinds of revisions, reflections and past based themes to our relationships, values and communication. Expect to see folks from the past pop back up and especially so if Libra happens to rule your 5th house of romance, 7th house of commitment or 11th house of friendships. This retrograde will be about accessing what is fair and balanced within all of our relationships and what matters most in our dealings with others. This is a good time to go back and recommit to an artistic or creative project/business that might have been swept under the rug by life's current demands. My advice would be to slow down and to think before you speak, especially when bringing up issues connected to relationship issues or dramas. If you must communicate or sign major deals at this time, go back over the details with a fine tooth comb and don't be in a rush to get the deal completed. Taking your time and remembering to slow down will be important themes of this Mercury retrograde period.
September 2021 is an interesting month of ups and downs. Tis life right? The beauty of this month in my opinion will be around grounding our energies back into the people, places and things that matter most and to being aware of our feelings and thoughts. Being present is the biggest gift we have in this life. Going back to the beginning of this article, the other greatest gift we have is gratitude. Everyone in any condition can find one thing to feel grateful for in this life. It is hard to remember when we are constantly being pulled this way and that way, influenced by the condition of our world affairs, or by our family and friends and the nuances of this human existence.
September 2021 wants you to SLOW down and to RELAX. There is nowhere that you need to be and there is nothing that you need to accomplish. Now I know we all have work and chores to attend to ( and those will be important, especially during Virgo season wink wink) in all honesty, true health and abundance lies within the balance of productivity and chillaxing. This month wants us to find that sacred balance and to honor both with everything we got.
September 2021 is here to clean up your life in order to make room for more health and abundance, tap you into your psychic abilities and the depth of your feelings and the awareness of setting healthy boundaries with a compassionate and trusting heart.
