As we are now entering into the intense period of the 2020 US Election, I will be likely finding the inspiration to put in a fair amount of time and energy into sharing insights into the candidates and the nation at this critical juncture in its history in the coming weeks and months. I will keep you posted.
Starwise Forecast for September 2020
Remember: September birthday people are entitled to a 10% discount for Readings this month.
We enter September just one day before the Full Moon on the 2nd.
1 – Mercury in Virgo will harmonize with, trine, Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury in earthy Virgo is really good at analyzing the facts and details and today that capacity can be used in a positive fashion towards looking deeply into what transformations, and how, need to take place in relation to the greater society or our individual selves.
2 – We start the day with the annual Sun in Virgo/Moon in Pisces Full Moon opposition. This is always an event of polarizing tension between the conscious earthy, practical, detailed orientation of Virgo, and the unconscious watery, emotional, sensitive and vulnerable qualities of Pisces hoping, as always, for a healthy integration.
Later, Venus in Cancer will oppose Saturn in Capricorn. This adds to the theme of watery/emotional vs. earthy/practical tension of the Full Moon. Venus in Cancer is very nurturing and devoted to family, but can get carried away emotionally. Saturn in Capricorn is very practically ambitious, dedicated, self-reliant and capable, but can be a ‘workaholic’ with little time for the emotional needs of oneself and others. We may find ourselves on one end of this tension and projecting the other into our outer experience. Obviously, a healthy integration and control over the negative tendencies of each is necessary.
And later, after all of that, the Sun in Virgo will harmonize with, trine, Uranus in Taurus. This can really free up the Virgo analytical mental approach with some intuitive, unconventional ways of getting things done in the cause of surprise new freedoms.
3 – Mercury in Virgo will harmonize with, trine, Saturn in Capricorn. This continues a theme of a lot of harmonies between Virgo energies and the big three, Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter, all moving through another earth sign, Capricorn, in the early part of this month. It should be good for getting some things done. Today the analytical detailed orientation of Mercury in Virgo can work harmoniously with the hard-working, ambitious dedication of Saturn in Capricorn.
4 – Venus in Cancer will square Mars in Aries. As I said earlier, Venus in Cancer can get carried away emotionally. Mars in Aries can be overly aggressive. They are likely to be rubbing each other the wrong way and some compassionate accommodation/integration will be called for.
5 – Mercury goes from earthy Virgo into airy Libra.
6 – Venus goes from watery Cancer into fiery Leo.
9 – More Virgo/Capricorn harmony today. The Sun in Virgo will harmonize with, trine, Jupiter in Capricorn. This should provide an outlet or inspiration to engage that Virgoan analytical practical detailed energy into some Jupiterian optimistic, expansive, and yet still practical, kinds of endeavors.
Also, on this day Mars will turn retrograde.
11 – The Sun in Virgo will oppose Neptune in Pisces. The non-rational, emotionally vulnerable oceans of Neptune in Pisces will be quite challenging for that analytical practical energy of Sun in Virgo. Best to not fight it and find some way to accommodate it in some mutually beneficial way.
14 – After its difficult encounter with Neptune, the Sun in Virgo can now return to the Virgo/Capricorn harmonies as the Sun will trine Pluto in Capricorn, again, putting Virgoan analytical detailed energies into seeing the need for deep structural changes, within and without, and work on a detailed plan or communication to facilitate making those changes.
15 – Venus in Leo will square Uranus in Taurus. Venus in Leo is very devotional and romantic but can tend to put adored subjects ‘up on a pedestal’ and not see the reality in the beginning. This tension with Uranus can either suddenly, surprisingly stimulate that tendency, or bring about a sudden ‘out of the blue’ revelation/destruction of previously held unrealistic idealizations, or both.
17 – Mercury in Libra will square Jupiter in Capricorn. Mercury in Libra can be very diplomatic but perhaps too restrained in moving forward with courage. That could be quite challenged by Jupiter’s tendency towards exuberant, if not exaggerated and overconfident, enthusiasms and aspirations.
Later, we have the annual Sun/Moon New Moon conjunction in Virgo with the opportunity to integrate conscious and unconscious awareness of the practical details of service and integrity that one wants to implement in the next year.
And, later after that, the Sun will harmonize with, trine, Saturn in Capricorn, continuing the harmonious Virgo/Capricorn themes of the month. Today that practical, analytical detailed Sun in Virgo, fresh out of joining with the Moon can feel supported by the responsible, ambitious dedications and responsibilities of Saturn in Capricorn.
21 – Mercury in Libra will square Pluto in Capricorn. These Mercury in Libra tensions with the Capricorn planets are preludes to the Libra/Capricorn tensions coming up during the next month. Today we again have that diplomatic, but not forthright, Mercury in Libra, being confronted by the deep, secret, hidden Plutonian transformations taking place or needing to take place.
Today is the UN international day of Peace. This aspect will be challenging for that, but could also lead to some final breakthroughs.
22 – The Sun enters into the month of Libra at today’s Autumn Equinox.
23 – Mercury in Libra will square Saturn in Capricorn. More tough Capricornian tension on that diplomatic but timid Mercury in Libra. This time from the ruling Capricornian taskmaster himself, Saturn.
24 – Mercury in Libra will oppose Mars in Aries. So now things really heat up for that restrained Mercury in Libra, coming from someone else’s aggression. How to rise to the occasion but still remain diplomatically cautious and careful?
27 – Mercury goes from airy Libra into watery Scorpio.
28 – Venus in Leo will harmonize, trine, Mars in Aries. Mars in Aries has been facing a lot of tensions this month. Today, finally, his dynamic courage can find a willing and playful partner with the idealistic, romantic energies of Venus in Leo.
29 – Mars in Aries’ yesterday’s fun will be short-lived as today he whacks into a square with Saturn in Capricorn, having to deal with some stodgy reality check and discipline, or the mission of convincing some stodgy structure to break out of the mold.
