Starwise Forecast for September 2015
We enter September a few days after the Full Moon which took place on the 29th.
We will have two eclipses this month. One Solar and one Lunar.
1 – Venus conjuncts Mars in the fiery, idealistic sign of Leo. Love, passion and courage can find some dynamic expressions.
5 – The Sun in Virgo trines, harmonizes with, Pluto in Capricorn. The ability to actively engage in service and an analytical awareness of what will be transformative in your life and the lives of others is available.
6 – Venus ends its retrograde motion and once again moves direct.
8 – Mars in Leo trines, harmonizes with, Uranus in Aries. Proud, ambitions and dynamic will energies feeling an even greater freedom and courage to act in the cause of liberation from old patterns in perhaps new and unconventional ways.
9 – Mercury in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn. A shy mental expression will be severely challenged by deep unconscious forces, or powerful undercurrents which are inescapable and unavoidable.
13 – The New Moon, Sun/Moon conjunction in Virgo occurs with the Moon eclipsing the view of the Sun. This death/rebirth ‘rebooting’ of the Solar conscious energies will take place in the 21st degree of Virgo of which Dane Rhudyar has written in reference to the Sabian symbol for that degree of the Zodiac:
21° TWO TEAMS OF GIRLS ENGAGED IN A CONTEST OF BASKETBALL.
Physical wholesomeness as prelude to inner integration. Self-evaluation, or refusal to face self. The rhythm of instincts.
17 – An active day Astrologically.
First Jupiter in Virgo will move into opposition to Neptune In Pisces. The Pisces/Virgo polarity always seems to raise the science vs. religion debate, or the rational vs. the faith-based emotional. Here Jupiter with its penchant for exaggerative philosophical confidence will be flavored by the analytical Virgo energies but feeling challenged, confused or duped by the Pisces emotional energies being expressed by its ruling planet Neptune, the God/Goddess of the Sea.
Later in the day Mercury goes retrograde until October 10th.
And later after that, Saturn moves out of Scorpio back into Sagittarius heading towards its square with Neptune in November.
Saturn in Scorpio involves enforced discipline over passions and desires. Saturn in Sagittarius is a serious look at travel and philosophical searching, and how they can serve each other, or be at ultimately cross purposes to each other The ‘test of faith’ around this will be in November.
22 – Venus in Leo trines Uranus in Aries. As on the 8th when Mars in Leo benefitted from the liberating courage of Uranus in Aries, on this day Venus in Leo receives the same opportunities available for her emotional, affectionate ideals.
23 – The Sun goes into the month of Libra.
The Sun in Libra sextiles Saturn in Sagittarius, right as the Moon sextiles Saturn coming from the other side of the Zodiac in Aquarius.
Our conscious awareness of relationships and diplomatic partnering can benefit greatly by this Saturnian serious dedication and responsibility dedication and loyalty to what on believes.
24 – Mercury squares Pluto again. (See September 9th)
Mars moves out of fiery, proud Leo into practical, analytical Virgo, until November 13th.
25 – Pluto stops moving retrograde and moves direct.
On the same day Mars in Virgo squares Saturn in Sagittarius.
Here the Saturnian dedication to a deeper belief can feel as restrictive to the daily analytical, mental functioning but can also force us to look at where we waste energy and deeper capacities with obsessions about unimportant details.
27 – The Sun/Moon opposition Full Moon with an eclipse of the Moon. The Sun in Libra opposite the Moon in Aries.
The statement for Libra is:
I seek myself though what I unite.
The statement for Aries is:
I seek myself though myself.
One is not better than the other, but they can appear at cross-purposes to each other. Here it is the fiery, unconscious Lunar instincts of the Moon in Aries, which will go through an ecliptic death/rebirth ‘rebooting’ of its energies.
This will take place in the 5th degree of Aries of which Dane Rhudyar said:
5° A WHITE TRIANGLE, WITH GOLDEN WINGS ON ITS UPPER SIDES.
Evolution of values in the sphere of inward self, but at a stage not yet substantiated. Eagerness for a spiritual goal.
30 – The Sun in Libra conjuncts Mercury in Libra. A conscious awareness of the need to form harmonious relationships and partnerships with others will ‘partner’ with the intellectual understanding and capacity to express that. A good day to write love stories.
