Restore, Balance and Renewal🍂
🌞 The summer months have not always been easy. We had all the planets in watery Cancer and fiery Leo opposing the difficult energy of Saturn and Pluto. Venus, the goddess of love and harmony), stationed retrograde and then Mercury (representing communication and travel) joined the backward dance in the sky on August 24th. The gift of all this is that in September, Venus and Mercury will both go direct and there are no more Saturn and Pluto oppositions. We can look forward to a beautiful, grand trine of energy working together for the New Moon in Virgo…so things are really looking up!
💞On September 3rd, Venus stations direct in fiery Leo. With Venus retrograde coming to an end, you can start to sort through issues that have come up on the last month and work on finding more inspiration and creativity that has been lacking or missing. Venus wants to bring together and in retrograde, that energy is strained to pull apart. This can include challenges or delays in romantic relationships, causing confusion or introspection. As Venus goes direct, these obstacles begin to fade away, allowing for a smoother flow of love and affection.

🌕September 29th – Get ready to harness the fiery energy of Aries, On September 29th, 2023 we have a Full Moon at 6° Aries. This Full Moon will highlight the creative potential of the Aries-Libra axis. Aries-Libra is the relationship axis which we could also call the identity axis because nothing shapes us more at a personal level than our close, 1-on-1 relationships. With the Full Moon in Aries, you may desire something new, fresh and exciting. This feeling is magnified with Mars’ conjunction to the South Node in Libra, which indicates a severing of outdated bonds, contracts, partnerships and relationships. The South Node is where we have been comfortable, but we need to move away from for healthy growth. So, any relationships that are no longer harmonious, equitable or fair, whether romantic, business, friendship or client, are reaching a natural or fated end.
