Let us Welcome September 2022 and Virgo Season!
This Virgo season as we begin to slow down and transition into fall, so does our energy, mood, and actions. We begin the harvest time of the year. To shift into a new season…Autumn. This is the 3rd opportunity of the year when crops are gathered and leaves begin to fall. This month, we will really begin to feel the hands of time slowing us down.
We open the month with Mercury in shadow. This shadow period is the two weeks prior to the actual planetary retrograde. Events at this time will reveal all of the things in our life that were started and now need a revision for completion. Mercury is the trickster and communication isn’t clear, travel delays are imminent and drama can escalate. Use this time to notice the minor details that trip you up.
Beginning on September 3rd we have a couple of transits occurring in Virgo season. We have the Moon, representing our emotional energies, in the ever-expansive sign of Sagittarius, in a harmonious aspect. This positive energy can bring social success and financial opportunities. This is also a good time for any type of advertising, marketing, and public relations. This sharing of information and wanting freedom will offer connection with others, by phone, zoom, or email, and the opportunity for short distance travels.
We also have the second aspect of Mercury joining Jupiter’s opposition. Mercury governs all types of communication and travel. The Great Benefic, Jupiter, is currently in the action-oriented sign of Aries. This combination of drive and willpower will have many people wanting to act boldly on their ideas and actions. Since we currently have five planets in retrograde, some of this energy is being thwarted. This can be seen as a loss of self-confidence. Use this time as an opportunity to improve a form of communication…written or in person.
Next, on September 5th, Venus, the planet of love and value, enters into the service-oriented sign of Virgo. When Venus moves into the practical sign of Virgo, we tend to feel calm and will work at a more methodical pace. We feel compassion for others in need. This transit is useful for making practical, sensible, grounded financial decisions.
On September 9th, Mercury, the planet of communication, travel, and technology stations retrograde in the air sign of Libra until October 2nd. Every Mercury retrograde has a purpose, and this one is no exception. It is linked to our past…rethinking, reviewing, reorganizing, remembering, and revisiting….mainly Libra themes…relationships. We cannot live without “others”. With “others”, we can share ideas and this helps us to expand upon our personal ideas.
Mercury retrograde in Libra is an opportunity to do the Libra work of connecting with others healthily, so we can have more honest, balanced, and fulfilling relationships. There are some tasks that I find beneficial to do while Mercury is retrograde. I generally use this time to catch up (with work and friends…actual meeting with them and reconnecting) and deal with any unfinished business/loose ends. Rather than starting something new…try to focus on the completion of projects. Again, I feel that this time is to slow us down and to have us go back and reflect and reorganize, so we can move forward again with greater success.
On September 10th We have a beautiful full moon in the watery and intuitive sign of Pisces. Full moons always bring about endings and closure. This one is also about surrendering and knowing when to. This one comes with existential topics to ponder upon. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac. There is always something mysterious and intriguing with the unknown 12th house.
Pisces being at the end of the zodiac has been there, seen it, and done it all. Pisces understands the wisdom of the workings of fate better than any other signs. Pisces knows when to surrender. To release…let go, let flow. Pisces takes action, and then leaves things open, giving room to the Universe to chime in and help shape its creation. Pisces being so fluid, we may feel somewhat confused with events and people and looking for some sort of direction.
The course of action may not always be straightforward, but the Universe always sends us hidden messages. Whenever confused, trust your intuition and let love lead the way to guide you on the correct path. This is a time for spiritual search.
On September 16th we have the Sun in the taskmaster sign of Virgo in opposition with Neptune in Pisces. Neptune governs dreams and illusion and is currently retrograde so this may manifest as disappointment mainly from point of view of our career and achievements, through unfulfilled promises. We may over-idealize future positions and illusions. We are encouraged to not trust things at face value during this time. You may experience difficulties in your private relationships with others. Some at this time may be easily influenced or taken advantage of. Others may use sympathy to trick or fool you, so use caution and beware of scams.
On Tuesday, September 22, Happy Birthday to all Libra’s!!! The Sun will enter the Cardinal sign of Libra. Libra is the sign guided by Venus, the planet of love and abundance. This is the planet of the Divine Mother and the Divine Feminine and Divine Love. This energy is about balance and justice and making things as smooth as possible. Libra IS the balance, the scales, and it weighs all sides of an equation before making a decision.
Since Libra is an Air Sign, this is about Air Energy. It always wants the truth, and preferably in a positive fashion. This day is also the Fall Equinox. The Fall Equinox is when the Sun is exactly above the Equator and day and night are of equal length. Again, think of the scales and balance. It begins the first day of the Autumn season.
Next, on September 25th we have a harmonious New Moon in Libra. New moons are an opportunity to start anew. This new moon brings us a positive attitude. It makes us cheerful and open-minded. This Libra new moon reinforces the desire for harmony in us. Love and partnership are at the center of our interest.
Some are feeling in a romantic mood and may wish to spend precious time with their partner. We will also find that we are open to new acquaintances and connections to others. Don’t be afraid to be your authentic self and accept others as they are.
On September 26th, the Sun will oppose Jupiter, which is currently stationed retrograde. The Sun represents authority and Jupiter’s retrograde has each of us internalizing our inner growth. There is a need to confront differences with others head-on. This transit can be viewed as possible misunderstandings or confusion. There is a need to listen and follow authority (Sun).
This transit between the Sun and Jupiter can cause vanity and excessive extravagance. You may feel the need to rise up and stand up against the law or a boss/superiors… and legal conflicts can occur. This alignment can create significant tension within individuals where you may feel torn between two opposing interests or parties. If handled correctly, this can lead to growth and greater understanding.
On September 29th, Venus enters the very social sign of Libra. Libra wants all relationships to be balanced, so at this time our focus will turn to satisfy the needs of others. Be sure to not neglect your individuality and push the needs of others to the forefront. Look to satisfy the needs of your partner and not lose yourself in the process.
