A month to get clear about what you want and go after it with certainty and passion!
The Close of August Aug 26 - Aug 31 Positive planetary aspects close the month of August. The start of the week, August 26th, Venus interacts with freedom-loving Uranus in a favorable way that can seem like a fateful outcome – try not to prejudge, wait to see how things turn out. Midweek, August 28th, Mars forms a favorable aspect with Uranus. However, with these two strong-willed energies, it’s a message to be careful not to step out of line or impulsively do something you may later regret. This is not a good time to take unnecessary risks – think first.
August 29th, Mercury enters Virgo, one of the signs he rules and is very comfortable and at home in Virgo. The energy opens a doorway for communication to take place over these next three weeks.
The Virgo New Moon on August 30th interacts with Uranus as well. Surprises are possible now and incidences can happen that move you forward to experience new things, people and situations, in a positive way.
Moving into September, the unpredictable combined energy of Mercury and Uranus on the 1st of September can cause you to feel both unsettled and excited at the same time. Expect the unexpected, anything can happen during this time. With a focus on Virgo energy, it’s a great time to plan and get organized; make the most of this month to forge ahead.
Week one: Sept. 02 – Sept. 08
The week commences with Venus challenging Jupiter, so you want to be mindful of being overly confident and making assumptions about your relationship or money matters, instead of thinking things through. A few days later, on the 4th of September, Venus will be in opposition to Neptune, which can also cause you to make assumptions and overlook details, so this is a week to pay attention to your intuition and follow your instincts.
On the 6th, Venus will dance with Pluto in a favorable aspect. This is a dynamic connection and can help you get serious about love and money matters. The aspects earlier in the week will have helped you sort out what feels right for you and what doesn’t. Inevitably, to introduce something new into your life there is a need to let something else go.
Midweek, both the Sun and planet Mars will connect with creative and communicative Mercury in Virgo. There are great connections and line ups of planets in Virgo; creative, action oriented and powerful. However, there is a message to think before you speak, so you don’t blurt something out you may later wish you had thought more about.
September 5th and 6th, there are trines, which are easy passages, with Saturn, which helps to make things real and ground them into a space where you can build on strong foundations.
Week two: Sept. 09 – Sept. 15
Mars will challenge Jupiter on the 12th, which can provide you with a lot of confidence, and perhaps even cause you to be over-confident, so be careful not to take your attention of the details of whatever you are doing. This month’s full Moon, a few days later on the 14th, in the sign of sensitive Pisces, heightens your emotions, intuition and sensitivity, so be careful you don’t take anyone’s adverse actions, or verbal exchanges, too personally.
There are also planetary interactions this week with Sun-Neptune and Sun-Pluto, which can make you feel like anything is possible. Keep that feeling top of mind and use it to move forward with certainty to gather positive momentum in your life to follow through with your dreams and to-do-list. You will need this energy as Mars combines with illusive Neptune energy this same week.
As Mercury and Venus enter Libra at the end of the week, it will be easier to adopt a more diplomatic approach in regard to both your personal and business dealings, and life can seem to open up to an easier passage while moving forward.
Week three: Sept. 16 – Sept. 22
Cautious Saturn finally comes out of retrograde this week on the 18th, which will help you leave the lessons of life behind while you open up to build new memories. The very next day, a Mars-Pluto interaction can give you the confidence to move forward with more certainty.
Later in the week on the 21st, abundant and optimistic Jupiter will challenge Neptune, and this planetary transit can present some uncertainty. The way you thought things were may not be the case. Be careful not to see a situation as you want rather than how it is. Keep a positive attitude intact, which will help to counteract any despondent feelings that can be caused by Mercury challenging Saturn on the 23rd. This is a short transit, so it’s important not to fall prey to negative thinking.
Week four: Sept. 23 – Sept. 29
The week commences with the Sun making its move to the sign of Libra, ruled by Venus, and this planetary position will place more attention on relationships. This also signifies the fall equinox and a time to find balance and feel comfortable with yourself.
On the 25th, When Venus and Saturn challenge each other, it’s a message to plan and visualize where you want to end up and not get too caught up with where you are now. When your vision and why is big enough, the how can take care of itself.
The very next day, on the 26th, as Mercury and Pluto interact, the combined energy encourages you to get deep down to uncover emotions and feelings so you can let go of old beliefs that may be stopping you from living the life you were destined to experience. Carve out some time to be alone so you can bring those feelings to the surface and release them, once and for all.
Week five: Aug 30. The Close of September and moving into October.
September closes with Venus, the planet of love, relationships, money and investments, challenging Pluto, which can help you see the reality of life. However, in doing so, the energy also helps you gain clarity as to what you do want and pushes you forward into October with new plans and visions for yourself. And as Pluto comes out of retrograde early October, you will have a chance to put your dreams and visions into practice!
