Mercury Is flying retrograde until the 22nd. He turned retrograde on August 31. Your mind slows down, you notice things you never noticed before and have time to think through some of your ideas.
A busy month with two eclipses. Both eclipses have challenging aspect to them. The Sep 1 eclipse has a square to Saturn and is conjunct Neptune. The Sep 16 eclipse is square to Mars. None of these are happy planets. Saturn can bring restrictions, Neptune can bring confusion and Mars can bring aggression. Virgo and Pisces will be impacted by these eclipses, but also Gemini and Sagittarius. Check out my report above for more information on eclipses.
Also this month Mercury turns direct on the 22nd and Pluto turns direct on the 26th.
Jupiter enters Libra on the 9th. This is good news, especially for Librans.
Those of you born on Sep 11 through 15 or Dec 10 through 15 are going to be prickly this month and ready for a fight. Mars, the macho planet, is coming into the ring and is in a really bad mood on Sep 12 and 13.
Those born on July 4 through 8 July or 3 to 7 January may have a profound healing experience during the period of Sep 22 through Sep 30.
Dates to Watch:
Sep 1 – Lunar Eclipse at 5:03 AM EDT at 9 Virgo. This eclipse is in a square to Saturn and conjunct Neptune. This activates the Saturn Square Neptune aspect that I wrote about last month and is exact on the 10th. A trigger to this eclipse is Oct 11 when Mars hits the eclipse degree. You may not notice anything to do with this eclipse until then.
Mercury Conjunct Jupiter . Pleasing news. Very good for travel and study.
Sep 7 – Sun Trine Pluto. Advise you receive from a relative or business partner could be advantageous.
Sep 9 – Jupiter enters Libra until Oct 2017. Jupiter, the planet of abundance is in the sign of love. This placement will be good for all of our relationships.
Sep 10 – Saturn Square Neptune at 10 degrees of Sagittarius/Pisces. This aspect has been plaguing us for months. We are trying to work on our career and get some important things accomplished but at the same time, we have fantasies about escaping to the Virgin Islands. We are being pulled in two different directions. Who will win? If you have Saturn or Capricorn strong in your birth chart, you will keep working. If you have Pisces or Neptune strong in your birth chart, you will be running away to the beach. If you have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars) or the ascendant at 10 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces you will be strongly impacted by this aspect.
Sep 11 – Venus Square Pluto at 14 Libra/Capricorn. This could bring very embarrassing situations with loved ones. Relationships tend to suffer. Especially difficult if you have personal planets or the ascendant at 14 Aries, Libra, Capricorn, Cancer.
Sep 12 – Mercury Square Mars and conjunct the Sun at 20 Virgo/Sagittarius. Everyone is saying what they feel today. No diplomacy anywhere. This could lead to a lot of conflict. If you are at work today and your boss is ragging on you, hold your tongue. That may be hard to do if you have personal planets or the ascendant at20 degrees of Virgo, Pisces Sagittarius or Gemini.
Sep 13 – Sun Square Mars at 21 Virgo/Sagittarius. This is another aspect that can lead to quarrels. Deal with people with kid gloves.
Sep 16 Lunar Eclipse at 3:05 PM at 24 Pisces/Virgo. A trigger to this eclipse is Jan 20, 2017 when Mars hits this degree.
Sep 17 – Mars Trine Uranus at 23 Sagittarius and Aries. I like this aspect. It gives energy to our creative impulses. It asks us to go ahead with our weird ideas and invent something wonderful.
Sep 18 – Venus Opposite Uranus at 23 Libra/Aries. One of your friends is very curious about your plans. You tend to be abrupt with them, in fact you can be abrupt with everyone today.
Sep 20 – Mercury Trine Pluto. Someone you admire may help you today.
Sep 22 – Mercury turns Direct. Finally! How has Mercury retrograde been for you? Hopefully, you didn’t buy a new car. Give Mercury a few days to go forward before you start making plans.
Sun enters Libra until Oct 22. A great time of the year. A good time for weddings.
Sep 23 – Mercury Trine Pluto. A good aspect for researching and communication.
Venus enters Scorpio until Oct 18. The planet of love in the planet of the underworld? Venus here wants to join a motorcycle gang, get some tattoos and maybe go out with that cute mafia guy.
Sep 26 – Sun Conjunct Jupiter at 3 Libra. A great day. A lift in spirits. If you have been in a rut, this will help you become more optimistic about the future.
Pluto turns direct at 14 degrees of Capricorn. This is a major aspect for anyone with personal planets at 12 to 16 degrees of Capricorn or Cancer. Pluto can bring deep revelations about something you have been troubled about. But he can also destroy what you no longer need in your life.
Sep 27 – Mars enters Capricorn. A good place for Mars. He is not too hot-headed; he puts all his energy into making money.
Sep 30 – New Moon at 8 Libra. The start of a new month. Work on your relationships this month. Start something new around the arts.
OUTER PLANET TRANSITS:
JUPITER is in Virgo until Sep 9, 2016. This month he moves from 28 Virgo, moves into Libra on Sep 9 and travels from 0 to 4 Libra. Jupiter is about growth and expansion especially in travel and education and also in the area of your life ruled by the house in your natal chart that holds 28 Virgo to 4 Libra degrees of Virgo.
SATURN is in Sagittarius until Dec 2017. This month he will travel from 10 to 11 degrees of Sagittarius. If you have the ascendant or any personal planets at 10 to 11 degrees of Sagittarius or Gemini, you may be in store for some hard lessons around the issues ruled by the planet and the house the planet is in or rules. While Saturn is in Sagittarius, he is asking about your belief system, your hopes for the future and your travel plans
URANUS is in Aries until 2018. This month Uranus is retrograde and will move from 24 to 23 degrees of Aries. We feel a need for freedom and we want to make some radical changes in our life. I believe in “cooperating with the inevitable”. If you have Uranus in a challenging aspect to your ascendant or personal planets, go on a long vacation, move, or make some major changes in your life.
NEPTUNE (creativity, sensitivity, escapism, dreams) is in Pisces until 2026. This month he is retrograde and will move from 10 to 9 degrees. A lack of focus, a sense of drifting or an inability to see a betrayal or disappointment until it's too late can be experienced by those of you with the Sun or Personal Planets at 9 or 10 degrees of Pisces or Virgo. For the enlightened out there, Neptune can also bring artistic, musical, creative expression, increased dreams and spiritual insights. Watch for some really inspired films to come out during the time Neptune is in Pisces.
PLUTO is in Capricorn until 2023. This month Pluto is retrograde and will move from 15 to 14 degrees of Capricorn all month. Profound changes will be felt especially by those with Sun, ascendant or personal planets at 14 or 15 degrees of Capricorn or Cancer.
Have a good month.
