It’s September and Labor Day Weekend marks the beginning of the end to Summer. I know that sounds depressing but here in New England the Sun is already setting around 7:30PM EDT. Let’s pray the warmer weather continues as long as it can.
The energy of Virgo continues to influence the astrological map till September 14th, 2019. By the 14th, the new rhythm of a school year is in motion. Students are feeling comfortable.
The full Moon in Pisces at 21 degrees (12:33AM) EDT on September 14th gives the sign of Virgo, the opposite sign of Pisces, some time to relax. Neptune is conjunct this full Moon offering creative energies from the lovely heavens above.
Neptune is the higher octave of Venus. Universal love (Neptune) verses personal love (Venus). Neptune is in Pisces which is strong since it is the natural modern ruler of Pisces. This is going to create soap opera dreams of love and romance.
Thank God the practical energy of Virgo is there to save those who want to float away to another fantasy world of perfection through the creative and romantic avenues of life. If you have Sun, Moon or rising in Pisces or Virgo, you want to integrate the practical side of Virgo with the dreamy more creative sign of Pisces.
Look to the houses in your chart ruled by these two signs and see which areas of life are being called to come into balance. Oppositions are trying to find common ground and learn from one another.
Sun, Mars, Venus and Mercury in Virgo are opposing this full Moon in Pisces as well as Neptune. Try to find common ground in relationships and channel that wonderful heavenly energy into focus with schoolwork for students or whatever work you are doing as an adult. Creative energies are very high and can be organized to create a song, poem or a script for a play.
This full Moon chart has 7 planets in Earth and 7 planets in mutable quality. That’s a strong Virgo signature. Virgo is winning and getting its way with this full Moon and it starts very early on Saturday morning so Friday night should be a great night to spend with that special someone and just chill.
Richard Gere is in the "Celebrity Spotlight" and is a wonderful example of Virgo and Libra qualities with a nurturing Cancer rising. He turned 70 years old on August 30th. Click on "Celebrity Spotlight" for all the details.
Jupiter is at 16 degrees and square to Neptune, Moon, Sun and Mars. This could spell more troubles for negotiations with China but Jupiter is in direct motion so the outcome could be positive. Tensions that have been carried over since the new Moon in Virgo at the end of August may find fulfillment. See what new directions are in motion starting August 30th that would give us an idea as to where we are headed.
It is on September 14th, the same day as the full Moon, that Mercury and Venus move into the sign of Libra offering a more balanced energy to the calculated organized Virgo energy that started the new school year with. This could be the balanced energy needed to get a deal going in trade agreements as Libra wants balance.
Congress comes back into session on September 3rd and organized with all the Virgo energy to hopefully come up with a compassionate and balanced plan for immigration and gun laws. The Pisces full Moon adds compassion and both Venus and Mercury moving into Libra offer the balance.
The energy of Libra remains active till the middle of October. If you have Sun, Moon or rising in Libra, this is a good time for you to put your life in order and make up your mind about what directions you want to move forward with. Romance will be high on the list and social events for those with Libra energies. Write a new poem, song or create balance in life with more knowledge about laws that create order in society.
Saturn will station direct on September 18th, 2019 at 13 degrees of Capricorn. We need Saturn to move forward and stop delaying the government body in America for immigration and new gun law enforcement. We have Jupiter in direct motion to create trade agreements, but Saturn is needed in the mix to move forward. This will also help the financial markets to reflect more balance and stability.
The sign of Capricorn is ready to make choices by the end of this year that will allow them to create more freedom in their lives. If you have Sun, Moon or rising in Capricorn you are making choices for the rest of this year that will have a lot of power behind it in January of 2020. Get all your ducks in a row and let go of anything that is holding you back. It’s not worth carrying old things around anymore.
The opportunities in the full Moon chart for Capricorn are there to further vocational directions and attain a stronger position in whatever area of work you do. Pluto in Capricorn is in sextile to the full Moon and trine to the Sun. Take advantage of offers coming from both men and woman in your daily life. Everyone is on your side and even those you may not think are. Look for this shift to show itself around the full Moon on the 14th and really get moving after the 18th.
The Sun moves into Libra on September 23rd and starts the Fall Equinox at 3:50AM EDT. Happy Birthday to the sign of Libra.
The new Moon on September 28th is in Libra at 5 degrees (6:03AM EDT). We have Mercury, Venus, Sun and Moon all in Libra and Mars will enter Libra on October 4th.
Those with Sun, Moon or rising in Libra want to start new directions in their life. This could be the start of a new relationship or a new starting point in a steady relationship such as an engagement or even marriage.
Venus is square to Saturn/Pluto conjunction showing a powerful commitment to both vocational and romantic directions. Libra has a hard time making up its mind and this signature is very karmic so be extra sure you are with the job or partner that is going to benefit you, or it could end up being manipulations of power.
Use your power and intensions with honesty and the outcome by January of 2020 will be great for you. That is when we have an exact Saturn/Pluto conjunction in the sign of Capricorn. Since Pluto is trine to Mars, it allows personal power to be used to benefit and lighten up the squares going on.
Wishing everyone a wonderful Fall season. Namaste.
