It’s that time of the month again, where I give you a forecast on the most important transits I see coming for this month. Air signs will be enjoying some quality energy during the month of September and it doesn’t look too shabby for earth placements either. Let’s hop right into it!
First Day of September
Taking place on the very first day of September, Venus in Libra will form a trine aspect with Jupiter in Aquarius. Now Jupiter is in retrograde, so this isn’t as beneficial as it would be if stationary, but it is still quite potent for good luck. Jupiter is the planet of expansion and Venus is the planet of ‘love & money’. With this, we can expect the start of the month to be good for any romantic or financial ventures. People with strong air placements will feel a desire to talk to that special someone or try a new business idea they have been sitting on, however, everyone can benefit from this energy by taking a leap of faith on what they desire!
At the same time, Saturn, the North Node and Mercury are forming a Grand Trine in the Air element. This is incredibly potent for mental stimulation. Any inspiration you have at this time will likely bring you a positive result if you act on it. More energetically sensitive individuals might be overwhelmed by this but, thanks to Saturn’s involvement, nervous energy should be decreased, allowing everyone to enjoy this mentally stimulating energetic environment.
It’s a very active month…
Immediately following all this goodness on September 2nd is an unfortunate moon opposition pluto. You may face some power struggles in your career in home life, as the moon is in Cancer and Pluto is in Capricorn. The positive side being that moon transits never last too long. By the time the weekend starts things will have gotten back to normal.
It will be a good weekend to rest up as Saturn will be making an opposition to the moon on September 3rd. People will be feeling a little melancholy. Do whatever you need to do to recharge your batteries. For many people, the Venus/Jupiter trine will be lifting their spirits so a good portion of the population (primarily air strong people) probably won’t even notice some of these lunar aspects.
September New Moon
The new moon of September happens pretty early on in the month, taking place on September 6th. This is happening in the sign of Virgo, making it more stable and practical compared to our recent new moons in Leo and Cancer. The quality of energy will be more grounded and many people will feel a drive to tidy up their surroundings.
To understand how you will personally be impacted by the new moon, look for the house cusp Virgo rules in your chart. This will be the best area to focus your intentions for the month. Virgo brings a detailed oriented approach to life. Work on fine tuning whatever problems are manifesting in that area of life. If you feel overwhelmed by a need for perfectionism, that is a very common Virgo trait. The best way to handle it is to push through the emotions and understand nothing is perfect. Taking action and risking failure is the only way you will improve. Trust in your higher power that things will turn out okay! When the full moon comes around later in the month you will be glad you did!
Moving Forward in the Month
On September 7th we will see an interesting formation. The planet Mars will conjunct with the sun and the moon in the sign of Virgo, but the moon and sun will be too far apart from each other to conjunct, making Mars the focal point of this formation. This will create a lot of masculine energy in the planetary environment, pushing us to take action and create the life we desire. It will also make us more standoffish in our dealings with people as the feminine moon will be overrun by the masculine Mars and sun. The hope here is Virgo will channel the energy into a positive outlet. When Mars is in Virgo, it is very particular about how it expends energy. Virgo doesn’t like to waste energy on fruitless ego battles or activities that won’t bring it closer to its goals. The more people keep this in mind, the more enriching an effect this formation will have on everyone.
If this wasn’t already enough, these planets are all in opposition to Neptune in Pisces. This will be a rude awakening for some people as Neptune is the planet of illusion. The energy of the sun will unveil the truth for many and Mars could be quite angry at finding out the truth. Those with a more Piscean nature may opt to stay asleep, but with how many oppositions to Neptune there are, I believe this will be quite difficult to ignore.
On the same day, Saturn, North Node and Mercury will reform their grand trine in the air element. This will renew the stimulating mental energy people are experiencing for another go around at the karmic rewards tide to positive North Node aspects.
Venus changes Signs
September 10th, Venus will enter the sign of Scorpio bringing a level of intensity to both romantic and business affairs. Venus is in a sign of its detriment when it is in Scorpio. Venus will express its love in a possessive and controlling way. There will be intense highs in relationships but also brutal and devastating lows. If you find a new lover during this transit, it will feel like something out of a fairy tale. Although, if your heart is broken then it will feel like a part of you was ripped out of your chest and you will never be able to love again. It sounds dramatic, but this is the nature of a Venus Scorpio.
With business and money, people may act more controlling than usual. Scorpio does not like to share and you will likely see this reflected in the attitudes and behaviors of the people in your workplace. Your boss may micromanage you a little more and the breakroom may come off as a more intense. On the positive side, Venus and Jupiter are still forming a trine, albeit a wide orb, but this will help to keep people’s spirits high and bring out their good nature.
Then Mars changes Signs!
On September 14th Mars will enter Libra. This is another determinant sign as Aries is the ruler of Mars. We will feel more compromising and willing to work things out with one another. In many ways this can be a positive placement for our relationships with others. On the down side it will make us more lazy and pleasure seeking. As a result, it could damage our progress towards completing our goals. There are many ways to overcome this. One of them would be to try and make a little bit of progress each day. Even if we lack the large bursts of energy, consistent application will move us towards our goals nonetheless.
A few more aspects to add
Shortly after on September 15th, Mercury in Libra will form a square with the moon in Capricorn. We will likely need to take a step back to understand what we are feeling during this time. Whenever the moon negatively aspects Mercury, it is a lot harder to put our emotions into words. Any fights that come up during this time should be tabled for a few days later. At this point, both people will be able to articulate what they actually experienced. The day after on the 16th, the moon will square Venus. Don’t be surprised if you and your loved ones get into a minor conflict. This is exactly where “tabling the discussion” is handy. It will be too soon for the Mercury/Moon square to have fully passed.
A little later on the 17th, Uranus in Taurus will form an opposition to Venus in Scorpio. This will make our relationships more unpredictable. You may find people get emotional for no reason and lash out at you. It’s also possible you get an unexpected bonus at work! With the nature of Uranus, we know it will be a roll of the dice. Whatever you can do to prepare yourself and to hold steady for the coming weeks will be a smart move.
September Full Moon
On September 20th, the moon switches teams and will be in conjunction with Neptune in Pisces while forming an opposition to Mars and the Sun. Empaths will be feeling this energy a lot as there is a large amount of emotional energy. Pisces is a potent, although unstable placement for the moon and Neptune feels the most at home in the sign of the bound fish. This full moon will be quite intense one because not only are the Sun and Moon in opposition, but Neptune and Mars are both involved.
This doesn’t mean we can’t use the energy to our advantage though! The house in your chart that is ruled by Pisces will be the key to unlocking all this energy. Earlier in the month, the new moon taught us to fine tune our methodology to solve our problems, now it will be about following your intuition to complete your goals! If you have been working steadily throughout the month, many of us will see rewards come around the full moon. If your goals are a little bigger than being fulfilled in two weeks, then you will want to shift gears and follow your intuition on where to improve things. Maybe you are feeling tired and uncreative. Trust your gut and rest! Or maybe, you feel you should change gears and try something slightly different. Once again, trust your gut!
The energy during this full moon will feel very chaotic with all the planets involved, but it will be a very favorable full moon if we act accordingly. Regardless of the action you take, dreams will be more vivid and some people will have a psychic experience. It is gonna be a good one!
The Start of Libra Season!
During the middle of the day on the 22nd, the Sun will officially enter the sign of Libra! Love is in the air with this Venusian, 7th house ruler and it will be a good time to focus on our relationships with others. There will be a great desire to hangout with friends and keep the peace during arguments. For the next 30 days or so, take time to tell the people you love how much they mean to you!
On the 23rd of the month, the moon opposes Mercury, jumbling our ability to communicate emotions. This will be similar to the Mercury/moon square earlier in the month but much more intense. Be aware, any arguments you try and sort out may get even worse. If you’re able to, postpone any decision making for a few days. You are likely going to feel restless during this time, so channel any excess energy into your hobbies or work.
September the 24th, we will see the moon conjunct Uranus in the sign of Taurus, which means more unpredictable emotions. The moon will also be square Saturn at this time. Luckily, this will dampen some of the extremes and while you may feel a little more sober during this transit, it’s unlikely there will be any rash actions taken due to intense highs and lows.
Wrapping Up September
Towards the end of the month on the 26th we will see several grand trines in the air element! The first grand trine will be the moon, the sun and Saturn. The second will be the moon, Mars and Saturn. With the North Node involved, we can also make out a trine between the NN, Saturn and the Sun, as well as NN, Saturn and Mars!
The aspects here will cause the end of the month to be chaotic for a lot of people. Air strong individuals may feel like they don’t know which way is up and which way is down. Brainstorming and socializing will be the nature of this air heavy formation. It won’t be the best time to take action, but it will be a great time to prepare! This is an incredible way to start off Libra season.
The only other event I will comment on during the month of September is on the 27th, Jupiter will form an aspect with almost every other personal planet! Some of these are major aspects like the trine to the moon but others are not so major like the sesquiquadrate to Mars. Every planet but Saturn will be forming an aspect to Jupiter. This means depending on your personal energetic qualities, you will see either fortune or struggle. Jupiter is a beneficent planet so whatever comes up for you will have a positive spin on it. Because of all the different aspects, this event will be very personal for each person, just be on the lookout for the end of the month!
This is going to be an interesting month for sure. A lot of planets are forming unique transits and with the way the world is acting, we can expect some crazy stuff to happen. If you are interested in finding out how you personally can take advantage of the planetary environment, make sure to book a One-Year Forecast reading. Happy birthday to the Virgos out there and good luck to all the Air signs! This month is going to be a fun one.
To my fellows, may your seeking be fruitful and your findings bountiful!
