September inspires us to turn away from the outside world and to return to ourselves. While each of us contain both masculine and female energy, female energy is this months theme, as it is gentle, creative, and supportive. It balances masculine tendencies and mirrors reflections. It is a period to give less of ourselves, so that we may replenish what has been loss or given away. We are temporarily hiding from the world for a few weeks to analyze all that we have learned and collected, so that we can enhance the person that we have become. Just like 'The Hermit' in the tarot who represents Virgo's quiet personality, he comfortably presses the 'pause button' on his life by turning his back on his future, to mentally (Mercury) rewind past choices. And don't forget folks, we are still in a Mercury retrograde from last month, so our thinking isn't exactly where it normally is and we ponder recent situations and individuals from our past. Virgo likes to silently study himself, to reinforce his strengths and reexamine his weaknesses. The mutable qualities that make Virgo and The Hermit influential are highlighted in September, giving us permission to be inconsistent and changeable, allowing us to remodel who we are, while reorganizing our priorities. Otherwise, we are forced to live our life in a mess, which can create stagnation and worry (the downside of Virgo and The Hermit). With a very potent Cardinal T-square, it is in our best interest to make smart choices in the near future to prevent disruptions in our lives. With September being the ninth month, we are reminded in numerology that the nine vibrations are about closing a cycle, so that we can venture off and experience new life that sits just along horizon. Decide what you want to take with you on your next chapter, and what you may need to let go, because you have outgrown it. How better to understand others and what we attract, when we get to know ourselves and our deepest desires. Do you like my scope so far? While I'm far from being a professional writer, I still enjoy writing and sharing my knowledge. This is just my way of being able to help and guide a lot of people as my way of paying it forward.
On September 8, a New Moon in Virgo will grace our week's ahead, harmonizing our soul's needs with self-esteem and self-respect. If we're available to what Luna can grant us, we can prosper new awareness and admiration within ourselves knowing who we are and what we have to offer, with steady growth from proper care. As greater forces connect in the Universe, we should really find a little bit of time to plan our intentions, and send dreams and goals off into the Universe. Virgo rules work, health, our service to others, finances, habits, healing, and personal development, so we should design our aims around these areas for the most benefit. The New Moon occurs 6:30am eastern standard time, with a conjunction between the Sun and Moon, both in practical Virgo. As the vibrations increase, is when I create and send off my aspirations.
The past few months I have had a number of projects I've been involved in on the side, and I've been reading and taking new classes to expand my self and my profession. Work kept me busy all summer, and while I have been blessed, I can also feel that I am doing too much with not as much rest as I would have liked during this past season. Much of my interest during this New Moon will be in grounding my projects, work, studies, health, habits and self, to come all together and balance out nicely. The timing with Virgo couldn't be any more perfect for me.
It's a favorable period to start a new emotional approach as to how we will claim that new job, get a promotion, put order into our finances and bookwork, build a personal work-out or wellness program, enroll in new training or classes to build our income, and so on. Since I am far from a morning person, I will usually will start the night before, writing out my desires and organizing them, before I announce them. Double Virgo energy, doubles the need to correct any flaws that might influence us to lose enthusiasm. State our needs as if they are already happening, like: "I AM organized. My daily schedule IS impeccable. My business IS growing with me". Always be gracious and appreciative of what you have in your life now, to show your gratitude that more blessings will be respected. The theme of the month is set for harvesting, so forward your passions into the Universe, and participate in making it happen! Virgo is the thinker and the worrier. Much analyzation may be overdone this month if we aren't mentally balanced, which can cause us anxiety, nervous energy, as well as insomnia. Virgo also rules the intestinal tract, so if you find yourself under stress, you might just find that your colon may be tense and gurgling. Listen carefully to your body, as you may be digesting a little too much information from unreliable sources, and your body may actually be searching for a way to finally release it.
While Venus has been transiting through balanced Libra, we could have been more friendly and mannerly to get our desires met. Things are shifting now, and it's not about teamwork anymore as Venus enters venomous Scorpio also on September 8. Wet juices begin to form, promoting sexual cravings, intimate connections, and emotional desires to come forth. She forfeits that sweet 'Carol Brady' approach, to power up and gain total control now, claiming 'no more Mr. Nice Guy' for the rest of this year. Venus becomes emotionally overwhelmed when she must travel the murky waters of Scorpio, which can reflect warped images of our insecurities, suspicions, and secret desires. She's prone to temptations just like anyone else, and in Scorpio we're secretive and sneaky to achieve goals. Seduction, deception, and manipulation is Scorpio's weapon to draw in her victim when nothing else works. Venus rules love and money, and in Scorpio, these desires can be the reward OR the bait that reels you in. Relationships are all or nothing now, as control and envy weigh heavy. If emotions become too heavy and burdening, we're able to let go much easier now, with no interest in looking back. Our need to escape into darker places increase, seducing our secret wishes to be met with psychic energies, the occult, drugs, sex, and rock n roll. Hiding away for awhile is much easier to do, than dealing with the pressures of life. 'Leave me alone' will be communicated much more thoroughly now, either through speech or actions - so create mutual space and serenity during this time for others, but also for ourselves. This is a great reminder to concentrate on stabilizing our own individual goals, rather than on relationships for your New Moon intent.
"Sometimes you must let everything go & purge yourself. Whatever makes you unhappy, and brings you down, get rid of it. Because when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out." ~Tina Turner.
As Jupiter continues his retrograde journey, he escorts himself from adventurous Aries, and re-enters the laid-back waters of Pisces on September 9 for the rest of the year. If you find yourself struggling with issues now, make an attempt to extract yourself from outside influences again, and reach within yourself to find the joy, happiness, and love you are searching for. Jupiter is generating goodness within, and it's a wonderful time to experience and discover what makes you truly happy. Spiritual awakenings, higher knowledge, and inner blessings are reachable if you are in search of real wealth, because once you recognize the light you have within yourself, you never have to walk in the dark again. And as Jupiter touches base with Pisces again, this can be of great value and potential to make amends with our emotional history once and for all.
September 11, a day that none of us will ever forget. Altho much time has passed, the events of this day, along with the people who died or were affected, will never been forgotten.
After the past few weeks of Mercury retrograde, misunderstandings and technical difficulties with our mechanical devices will finally start to smooth out as Mercury stations and turns direct on September 12. We can go ahead and continue with our life, major purchases, signing contracts, and expressing ourselves. Mercury is the 'Communication Specialist', and in the Tarot, he and Gemini are associated with The Magician card. Now seriously, who knows how to speak to an audience better than this charming guy and his amazing story, along with his quick wit, fast hands, and extra cards up his sleeve to keep his crowd mesmerized. The Magician in our life can represent a car dealer, a politician, a preacher, a motivational speaker, and so forth. When he appears in a relationship spread, it's definitely time to step up and speak your mind, because he represents 'clear communications' ahead! The Magician in a business spread is going to encourage you to verbalize all those brainstorming ideas to sell yourself to your boss or a new client. The downside to The Magician appearing as perfect as he is, is that he is SO darn good at talking the talk' and giving the sales pitch - that we get lost in his 'glamor' and forget what was actually required of him.
The magic of the tarot language is not only fun, but it is also very insightful! If you like Tarot, you might be interested in knowing that I also provide a monthly Tarotscope to share personal tarot messages per each zodiac sign, where you can also interpret your own meaning with my mini 'easy to use' three card spread.
On September 14, Pluto stations and turns direct after fives months of retrograde motion. Whatever has been hard to hold onto or control in the past months, Pluto finally gives us the 'green light' to release and let go. Pressure and tensions are released, with permission to carry on with our lives. Are you interested in knowing where Pluto is creating deep intense changes in your world? Look at your natal birth chart to see what house Capricorn rules, as this is the area that is under demolition, with many transformational changes happening in the years ahead.
Mars joins Venus and enters Scorpio on September 14 until the end of October. Venus tells us what we desire and what we are willing to invest ourselves into, while Mars is our energy that pushes the action to get it. Depending on his placement and aspects, Mars is aggressive and can be rather bullyish, but in Scorpio he can act in a hidden way, where you would probably never suspect him. This energy can be a clever sneak attack for competitive business advertising and promoting new products, but in relationships it can be scheming, crafty, and controlling. As Jupiter and Uranus form a conjunction as they both retrograde into Pisces on September 18, we can find ourselves returning into a favorable place or experiencing a fortunate surprise. Don't ask questions or make excuses, just make yourself available to be seen or touched by unfamiliar forces!
Weather could be a bit more active than usual on September 21. And although today is the UN International Day of Peace, we may face a few challenges with oppositions between Sun/Jupiter, and with Sun/Uranus shortly after. Egos and rebellious acts want to act out, and we need to be ultimately clever to hold our own. Use caution with words, electrical products and machinery, as anything can happen to take a surprising turn.
After four weeks of working on our self, analyzing life and our relationships, the Sun feels confident to step out of the hibernating walls of Virgo to step into socializing Libra on September 22. We're ready to create new balance with all that we have learned, while attempting new tasks to give peace a chance for our connections with others or for ourselves. The Fall Equinox also blesses his day, generously allowing us to reap what we have sown over the past few months. A ripe Full Moon in courageous Aries on September 23 dares us to take a stand up and fight for what is right. May your life produce a great harvest, with delicious fruits to sweeten your months ahead.
Speaking of making a stand, whether you are or not a fan of Eminem, he has done some powerful work with himself to become a better individual, by overcoming his weaknesses. He's a Libra who has went through much to find himself, and through hard work and willpower he has been able to face his demons and conquer his desires. So think about what weakens and prevents you to be the person that you need to be, to live your life as you choose. As Saturn transits Libra, Saturn teaches us about life and doing the right things for long-lasting rewards. In Libra, we're taught how to stay balanced with those we keep company with, by facing fears and displaying genuine acts of loyalty and commitment. Without these, trust can not sustain, because this is the secret ingredient to power us through hardships and obstacles. We are also instructed on how to have a good relationship with ourselves now ~ facing the hard facts of reality to create positive progress in our life, or surrendering ourselves to the suffocating illusions that neglected promises deliver. Our decision creates our individual perspective and approach towards life, work, and relationships. 'I'm not afraid' is an awesome new track by Eminem to experience his rage and dedication to remold his life, despite what others would think (Saturn fears and worries about reputation).
I found an awesome quote by Pietro Aretino to fit this month's scope, but first begin standing in-front of the mirror and looking at yourself from the chest up. The person in the mirror is the most friend that you will ever have. Tell that person, "I love you, and because I love you, I would sooner have you hate me for telling you the truth than adore me for telling you lies." Think about what truths you have kept silent, that has created chaos within you, while affecting the relationships that you have, or don't have anymore? Know that making good choices and doing the right thing can be a very lonely path, but it is a path that will lead us to great awareness, trust, honor, and self-respect.
Make it a great month!
Peace out, Starcana
