September Monthly Horoscope September 2018 ~ Gaining Momentum
With the Leo and Eclipse Season over, situations will become more intellectual and focused with the sun now in Virgo and Mercury following suit on September 5th. Saturn will end is almost 5 month retrograde and station direct on the 6th. This allows us to start to really move forward with our goals and plans that have may have been brewing or delayed during this intense retrograde period.
September’s New Moon on Sunday September 9, 2018 falls at 17° Virgo. Virgo emphasises a jump start for the physical body. This earth sign New Moon reminds us that, as important as our minds are, if we neglect our bodies they tend to suffer for it and soon enough will let us know. When we nurture one part of the system, we nurture the other and thus allow universal assistance. If we are ailing, then now is the time to make adjustments, under the dual lights of the Sun and Moon in wisdom-based Virgo.
Also on September 9th, Venus will enter Scorpio which will intensify your relationships and make them alot more emotional. It is charged toward dynamic emotional growth and radical intimacy. Venus in Scorpio brings intensity to our connections, a carnal urge to understand what it is that brings us closer together and what, ultimately, stands to drive us apart.
Mars re-enters Aquarius on September 10th after recently coming out of retrograde. Mars has spent alot of time in Aquarius this year since first entering Aquarius back in May. Mars in Aquarius suggests breaking free of all limits no matter how long it takes and no matter what's at stake. Impulse with staying power, or fanaticism. While Aquarius is known to be a logical sign, when it gets riled up logic flies out the window. For example, if a limit is encountered, Mars in Aquarius will push and keep pushing, just because someone says "No."
Mercury doesnt spend too long in Virgo and enters Libra on September 21st. This will reduce some of the intellectual focus and bring our awareness to our communication and balance within ourselves and and our personal relationships. It will be followed by the Sun entering Libra on the September 22nd.
After the autumnal equinox turning point, the Aries Full Moon on Monday September 24, 2018 is at 2° Aries harks back to spring-like energies of the prior vernal equinox. Memory of once-green leaves, now in fall, reminds us of opposite ends in the normal cycle of life and death in nature’s year, promising new life again in another six months. The Aries Moon conjoins planetoid Chiron, the mythic Wounded Healer, echoing that human births are seldom ideal, and yet we know ourselves better when we are aware of their circumstances. The full moon square Saturn has a restricting and depressing influence on your feelings and relationships.
Capping off the month of September Pluto will end its 5 month retrograde period on September 30th. This was a time of reflection about power and control in your life. If people have been controlling or manipulating you then now is the time to let them go. You will have a firmer understanding of where your power lies and how to use it more effectively and fairly in the coming months.
