September reminds us that the Fall Equinox is approaching.
Many students are already in school and some are preparing
to start their first day as I write this column on
August 24, 2017.
Our prayers go out to Texas that the families will find a way
to heal and that everyone is safe.
The signs most effected this month are: Pisces, Leo, Virgo,
Libra, Sagittarius, Aries and Capricorn.
Mercury retrograde is perfect for organizing and planning for
the new school year but moving those plans forward can be
tough with things forgotten, communication breakdowns, traveling issues from cars breaking down and map routes that turn out to be incorrect. Parents and children not always agreeing on what is best to wear or just a resistance to moving forward.
Mercury stationed retrograde on August 13th and will station direct on September 5th at 7:29AM EDT. A perfect time since Labor day is on September 4th for a last weekend of beach parties and family get together's. It will station direct at 28 degrees of Leo. The drama continues with the sign of Leo.
Remember, we already have the personal planets, Mercury and Venus, in Leo and the total new Moon solar eclipse was at 28 degrees of Leo. This is when it all comes together for the sign of Leo.
If you have Sun, Moon or rising in Leo within 6 degrees of 28 degrees, you are ready to LET IT ALL OUT. Those around you may think you are having an emotional breakdown but when the clouds clear by the new Moon on September 20th, you have a new life.
Leo is ready to take their new creative energies and put them to work and admit to those around them that they have been a bit self centered over the last 2 months. Growth and gains in all areas of life are in Leo's favor after Mercury turns direct on September 5th but the beginning energies of deep denial about issues they have delayed will surface and not look so appealing to others until the shadow heals up by the 20th.
Pisces is at it again. A full Moon in Pisces at 13 degrees on September 6th at 3:03AM EDT. At the deepest part of sleep is a dreamy river of information. Pay close attentions to your dreams if you have Sun, Moon or rising in Pisces to receive answers on how to move forward till the new Moon on the 20th.
This Pisces Moon is opening up the third eye (psychic eye) located between the eyebrows. Sensitivity is heightened. Pisces more than all the other signs can feel the pain of humanity and feel that life is helpless with despair. But, they can also help to heal the world from pain like the late Jerry Lewis who tried so hard to help bring millions of people together to end the suffering of MD. God bless his soul.
The full Moon closely conjoins Neptune which is the modern ruler of Pisces. The Pisces solar eclipse of February 26, 2017 was also conjunct Neptune. For those with Pisces Sun, Moon or rising, remember what seeds you planted back on the new Moon solar eclipse in February and those are the seeds that will sprout to fulfillment with this full Moon. New Moon's begin and full Moon's complete.
Neptune is in Pisces (2011 to 2025) and is helping to heal the shadows of the collective consciousness of the world that have been a part of the Piscean Age: Victimization, feeling powerless, addictive behavior of all kinds, delusion, and a dream state of denial to reality. Escaping from the harsh world through fantasy.
This is the time to heal the past and not have to carry all of life's problems on your shoulders as Christ did to usher in the Age of Pisces but to let go of the old and work with others to help you and know you are not alone.
Mars moves into Virgo September 5th. The same day Mercury stations direct both opposing the full Moon in Pisces. Mercury and Mars are in a close conjunction as well as the full Moon and Neptune. Both of these combinations are square to Saturn, now in direct motion, in Sagittarius.
This is a t-square of tension that is trying to find a completion (full Moon) to all areas of life for the signs of Virgo, Pisces, Sagittarius and Gemini which feels left out of the t-square. Gemini will have the least tensions from this of all the mutable signs.
The mutable signs are looking for healing and they have Mars and Mercury to move the healing energies forward creating balance. Virgo is the sign of healing and deals with health issues. Pisces is about the collective world of humanity. Sagittarius is about international concerns, religion, higher education and ethical laws.
This full Moon points to a major world wide healing of issues and we could see some countries having health crisis like Sudan. Weather pattern's could get intense involving water. We have seen American Navy ships going through tough times on the ocean waters and now we are seeing Texas going through a serious hurricane.
Maybe this is a call for humanity to be more compassionate for those who have nothing. No medicines or medical equipment's to serve and heal their people. We could see a major step towards trying to heal the world's health problems for underdeveloped countries.
In the mean time, Mars at zero degrees is conjunct President Trumps progressed Sun in the early degrees of Virgo. The total new Moon eclipse landed right on his rising sign of Leo at 29 degrees. With Mercury stationing at 28 degrees of Leo on September 5th, he will continue to communicate (Mercury) in a forceful way (Mars in Virgo) what he feels is healthy for the country and he does have the ability to tap into the collective mind of America (Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune), Moon rules Cancer which is the birth sign of America, and try to heal the intense issues he has been faced with in the month of August which had two eclipses and Mercury retrogarde.
By September 6th, Mercury and Saturn will be in direct motion helping to move the country forward with less tensions. But, the t-square keeps some of the tensions alive.
Mercury moves into Virgo on September 9th. Then Venus moves into Virgo on September 19th a day before the new Moon in Virgo on the 20th. The spotlight is intense for those with Sun/Moon or rising in Virgo.
This new Moon in Virgo is 27 degrees at 1:30AM EDT. We now have Venus, Mars, Mercury, Sun and Moon in Virgo on this new Moon day. The sign of Virgo is ready to start manifesting new dreams as Mars and Mercury oppose Neptune. Maybe its a new job, relationship, home, health program or just something new that helps to keep balance in their lives.
Virgo is the Priestess so this new Moon is an opportunity to look after the body and see it as the temple that needs attentions. This is a practical Earth sign. Discernment is one of Virgo's gifts. They can now take a close look at what is not working and release it into the Earth and up to the sky.
The new Moon opposes Chiron in Pisces. Chiron points to where we are most vulnerable and allows up to heal it. Chiron is often called the wounded healer. Those in the healing arts can take advantage of this energy from September 20th till the full Moon on October 5th. Virgo does not have to be perfectly healed itself before it can heal others. They are perfectionist. They can be hard on themselves and this combination helps to allow them to realize that perfection is always a part of their life regardless of how out of control it seems.
We may see more protesting about our healthcare in America as Jupiter moves into an opposition to Uranus both square to Cancer rising in this new Moon chart. Donald Trump is there to push the very stuck energy (The Sewer) of the whole body of government to move forward and let energies move rather than delay. Look to this time when new steps to go forward will meet with public as well as government resistance but a move forward will be needed in order to keep healthcare alive in America. Bernie Sanders has proposed his healthcare planand his followers will be very vocal during this time. Pesident Trump's last Saturn opposition to his natal Sun will be in October.
The grand trine between the North Node in Leo, Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries gives a green light to these signs to move forward and gains financially as well as wonderful creative energies can manifest over the next 2 weeks from the start of this new Moon in Virgo. Saturn in Sagittarius is now in direct motion and ready to make its last efforts to fulfillment before Saturn enters the sign of Capricorn on December 19, 2017.
The Sun moves into Libra on September 22nd at 4:02PM and the Fall Equinox starts. Happy Birthday to the sign of Libra and happy Fall season for everyone.
Pluto will station direct on September 28th in Capricorn and help the sign of Capricorn move forward in life. The goat has been going through a lot of delays since 2008. They could use a break at this point.
Mercury moves into Libra on the 29th helping those with Sun/Moon or rising in Libra with choices they make on a daily basis. Libra is the sign that has a hard time making up their minds as they try to balance everything out. Mercury can help them be more clear about what choices they need to make. Relationship awareness starts to energize itself by the end of September and carries over into October.
Richard Gere and Bruce Springsteen will be in the “Celebrity Spotlight”. Richard Gere
is a Virgo and Bruce Springsteen is a Libra.
