The close of August

It was all systems go! Mars, the action planet and motivator, out of retrograde on the 27th, and with Mars in Capricorn, engines were revved and ready to go. On the same day, Mercury and Jupiter squared, reminding you to check the details, and not become so distracted that you gloss over important data.

It was a month to get your act together in whatever area is most important to you, so that new exciting changes can take place in September. 

Week one – September 03-09
On September 5th, Mercury the communication planet will make his move to Virgo, one of the signs he rules, and the energy will help you be more analytical, intellectual and communicative, all great traits to have and master.

September 6th, Saturn will come out of retrograde, and lighten the energy, the hard work that you’ve put in over the past months can start to formulate as you put positive plans in place for the future now.

September 7th, as the Sun is opposite Neptune, the energy sparks your imagination, and along with it, helps you get in touch with your inner most dreams, hopes and wishes for yourself and your life. However, to keep your energy even, this is a good time to indulge in clean living, rather than substances that alter your consciousness. The cleaner you can live during this time, the more enlightened messages you will receive.

September 8th, Venus and Mars will form a somewhat challenging square, which will mean that you need to pay close attention to matters of love and money. Try to avoid making rash decisions. Shortly after, on the 9th, Venus will enter Scorpio, where it will stay for the rest of the year. It is electric and intense energy, which can be exhilarating, but if you’re not careful, it can also be manipulative. Also, on the 9th, the Virgo new Moon energy can settle energy between you and other. However, be careful of being critical. Sometimes, the least said the better.

Week two – September 10-16

The intense energy of last week is now replaced by softer planetary formations, which will provide some thinking reflecting time, however, there can also be some surprises. Mars will reenter Aquarius, which gets you thinking about how you can do things differently. It’s time to step out the box to be original and unique.

Transformational Pluto interacts favorably with powerful Sun energy on the 11th, and with Mercury on the 15th, both can heighten your sense of who you are where you, where you are and where you want to be in your life. Allow your mind to expand and think big!

A Venus Uranus opposition on the 12th is a message to expect the unexpected, nothing is out of the realms of possibility now. Be careful not to have a misunderstanding around the 13th when Mercury will oppose Neptune, as this is a time when you want to look for facts, not fiction or hearsay.

Week three – September 17-23

September 18th, assertive and sometimes aggressive Mars, will square Uranus for the final time this year. In the process, the energy can set up conflict and disruptive behavior, so be careful not to get in the firing line of someone else’s angry stance.

On the 21st, when Mercury enters Libra, this will soften any upsetting energy and provide the chance to have a much calmer discussion to resolve any disagreement or difference of opinion.

Saturday 22nd, the Sun will also make its move to Libra, signifying the autumn equinox where the days and nights are equal in time. It’s a perfect time to relook at your daily routine to check that you are giving energy and time to things and people in your life who are most important to you.

Week four – September 24-30

The full Moon on the 24th in Aries, which is the Moon in Aries and Sun in Libra, both will square Saturn in Capricorn on the 25th. This focuses your attention on responsibilities and what needs to be completed to keep your life heading in the right direction. On the 27th, a favorable connection between the Sun and Mars gets you focused on your goals.

Pluto will come out of retrograde on the 30th, and as its in Capricorn, allows you to have a realistic look at life and be able to step forward to make positive changes. A powerful way to finish the month!


October kick starts with intense energy that pushes you forward. Hold on tight, and be prepared to move out of your comfort zone so you can move into a new empowered existence.
