Ah, September. The air begins to cool and Mother Nature gradually displays her array of colors to celebrate the transition into the Fall season. The season of Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius. The season of finding balance within in order to transform and prepare for the darkness of Winter.
The energy of September will be a welcome change from the last few months as more planets are waking up from their slumber of retrograde. This month we have Saturn and Pluto stationing direct in the sign of Capricorn. Look to your birth chart to locate the house that contains Capricorn to show you what area of your life will start to see more responsibility (Saturn) and powerful transformation (Pluto).
The energy of Venus will be strong this month as it enters the sign of Scorpio and prepares for it’s retrograde starting in the beginning of October. Venus in Scorpio will bring a desire to dig deep into what you value. You will wish to align yourself with things and people that bring you a love that exceeds the superficial, with a hint of taboo.
On the same day as Venus enters Scorpio, we will have a New Moon in the sign of Virgo. This New Moon will be a jumpstart for your well-being. It will have you redesigning your daily routines with a focus on your physical health. The overindulgences of the Summer are calling to be detoxed from the body in order to enter the Fall season with a clear mind, body, and spirit.
The transition into the Fall season begins during the Fall Equinox on September 22nd. This is when the Sun enters Libra and the hours of light are equal to dark. There is a balance in nature which is calling for a balance within ourselves. It marks the beginning of much healing that is to be done in the next three months so that we are ready for the transition into darkness (Winter). What is out of balance in your life? Find that and transform it so that come Winter you have everything you need to thrive.
After we reach the turning point of the Fall Equinox, we are greeted with a Full Moon in Aries. This Full Moon brings an initiating energy with it. An energy that allows us to see what changes we need to make in order to heal and grow. Open your eyes to what you seek from yourself and others. Is it balanced or do you rely heavily on others and not enough on your own strength?
As you can see, September is all about making small changes that will ultimately result in major transformations. If you do the work. Astrology only brings awareness to the energy around you, it is your free will that decides how you are going to use it. Enjoy your PSL’s (Pumpkin Spice Lattes), but do so in moderation and along with physical activity. Get outside and take in the crisp air of change.
