The Monthly Forecast For September

Labor Day heralds the end of summer, and the transition into fall through Indian summer. We still have some warm days left, but up here in the mountains, the nights are growing cooler. September starts off with some lovely aspects on 9/4, with the Moon in Aquarius making a beautiful Trine aspect to Jupiter in Libra, an aspect of expansion, hope, and optimism. At the same time, the Moon Sextiles Saturn, the planet of patience and wisdom, balancing our temptation to take on too much. It also Sextiles Uranus, the planet of freedom and change. What a wonderful combination to start off the month with.

Mercury turns direct again on 9/5, finally! The Full Moon will be on 9/6, with the Sun in earthy, practical Virgo opposing the Moon in mystical Pisces. The Moon in Pisces will conjunct Neptune, a powerful aspect, since Neptune is the ruler of Pisces. Here we have an invitation to shed the mind, and embrace the magical within us. The Moon also Sextiles Pluto, the planet that rules the supernatural and the Void, alchemy and transmutation. If we can release our fears, ( Saturn Squares the Moon), we can create anything we can imagine. Go for it!

9/9 is another fabulous day, with the Sun in Virgo Trine to Pluto in Capricorn. Power, power, power. The Moon in late Aries will Conjunct Uranus, encouraging new beginnings, while it Trines both Mercury and Mars. Mercury rules the mind, communications, and the Throat Chakra, while Mars rules courage and motivation. What a great combination. 9/10 is also very good, with the Moon, now in Taurus, forming a Grand Trine with the Sun in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn. This is phenomenal for intention work and manifesting. Neptune Sextiles the Moon at the same time, adding the mystical aspect. Wow.

Another home run day is 9/17, with the Moon in Leo making several good aspects. It forms a Grand Trine in the Fire signs, Trine to Uranus in Aries, and Saturn in Sagittarius. This blends excitement with wisdom and planning, with a Conjunction to Venus, the planet of charm and joy, thrown into the mix for added fun. Speaking of Venus, on 9/18 Venus at 28 degrees of Leo will Trine Uranus at 28 degrees of Aries. This is a love at first sight aspect. Fall in love with someone, maybe yourself. Be open to the possibilities in front of you.

The New Moon in Virgo will be on 9/20. The New Moon is always a time of setting our intentions. Light some Sage, light a candle, do some prayer work.

The Sun enters Libra on 9/22, the Autumnal Equinox. I love Fall, it’s my favorite season, it is the Metal Element in Chinese medicine, justice, fairness, and the truth. We could all use some of that right now. 9/28 is very powerful, with the Moon in Capricorn Conjunct to Pluto in Capricorn, and Trine to Mars in Virgo. Yowza. This is intense. If you need anything held in the subconscious mind blasted out of the way, this is the day to do it. The Moon Trines Venus, also in Virgo, at the same time, so throw love at whatever obstacle you encounter.

September shapes up to be a magical month. Fall is here, with the leaves beginning to turn, the days turning crisp, the gardens offering their final harvests, kids going back to school, and color everywhere, from the golden shafts of sunlight through the trees, to the last of the blossoming roses. Take some time to dance under the Full Moon. Sing. And love with everything in you. Blessings, Judith
