In brief …

The Virgo New Moon eclipse is a sure sign from the heavens that not only do you need to make some big changes, but those changes are now possible. Do think about what you want for yourself, for the coming year, and for your life. And don’t second guess yourself!

And now to the nitty gritty…a look at the overall energies for September

If you like to live in harmony with the astrological energies, this is a great month for you. There are some very big things happening; in plain English – sit tight, change and opportunities are abounding. The pressure is coming off you in one part of your life and being applied in another, you can change your life dramatically, transform it even, end something, redo, rethink, revise, love again, make up with someone, open up to something new and be inspired…

(And for those who like to know the astro, Saturn is changing signs and there are not one but two eclipses. Plus there is a great link between Jupiter and Neptune, Mercury goes retrograde and Pluto ends his current retrograde.)

For those who like dates – here’s a handy list of the dates to watch out for:

September 6 – Venus goes direct

September 13 – New Moon eclipse

September 17 – Jupiter opposite Neptune

September 18 – Mercury retrograde

September 18 – Saturn into Sagittarius

September 25 – Pluto direct

September 28 – Full Moon eclipse

And here’s a rundown of all of it for you and your sign…

It’s all about love (and maybe a bit about money)- Venus goes direct

Venus has been going backwards, as you might know. Remember the aim of the reverse cycle was so you could work out what really matters? So think about it. Over the past month or so, have you realised ‘what really matters’? Where you want to be, who you love, who you can and can’t forgive? Seeing old friends? Realising that some people just don’t mean the same to you as they once did? Falling in love with new people all over again? All that was Venus going backwards, giving us a chance to weigh things up emotionally, to reconsider our values, and to see how we feel about people and places that once held our hearts. As of September 6, this cycle is over and we should have all the info we need. Then Venus will start to go forwards for you again. This is where she is doing that for your sign,

Venus is now going forwards again. But she’s not yet back into a totally normal phase. She has to recover the ground she backtracked over.

For you, Venus is going forwards in your 12th House of Secrets and Sacrifices. If you live out this current cycle to its absolutely peak potential, it’s a time when you can end up being quite selfless, and being happy to make sacrifices for the person or people you love. Lived to less potential, it’s a time when you can get some kind of guilty secret connected to love or wealth. Remember, no one should ever be made to feel guilty because of their success.

New Moon eclipse in Virgo – change abounds !

September 13 brings New Moon eclipse in the sign of Virgo. That’s big news for everyone but especially for anyone who is Virgo or Pisces or has Virgo or Pisces Rising. This means that doors are opening up for you in one part of your life. Here’s a rundown about where that is for all the signs.

Aries – news starts re your daily working life await.

Taurus – it’s all about your romantic life, a child, or a creative issue.

Gemini – a new start at home.

Cancer – it’s all about the way you talk and think and write – you’re on fire!

Leo – a new financial cycle starts here

Virgo – your whole life is up for renewal!

Libra – a new spiritual cycle is dawning for you

Scorpio – your friendships are in focus

Sagittarius – new work doors are opening

Capricorn – travel and study opportunities are in the ethers

Aquarius – sex and money get a boost in your life

Pisces – a new love cycle starts here!

Connect to the Divine – Jupiter opposite Neptune

If you’re on the spiritual path, this really is a month to stay awake and aware. Look at yourself and don’t be afraid to admit where you were wrong. It seems quite obvious that one of the reasons we are here on Earth is to evolve. And part of evolving is accepting that we make mistakes and we learn from them.

Meditation is one of the best ways I know to evolve. Do you have a practise? There are more meditation teachers out there than you can poke a stick at these days, so there is no excuse not to learn. And if you’d rather do it informally, you can easily go onto YouTube and listen to any number of guided meditations by people like Doreen Virtue and Deepak Chopra. Heck, here is a super simple 3 minute one I recorded a while back – always good to listen to at any time!

The more you can tune into the Divine, the better, frankly. It keeps us on the straight and narrow. And this month with all the changes in the air, that goes double. And because September 17 sees this rare Jupiter/Neptune link, it goes triple. Have a think about it. Would you like to be calmer and have easier access to your intuition? That’s what connecting to the Divine brings, among other things. It’s not all about being airy fairy. It’s about living a happier life! Anyway, it’s up to you if you want to go down this path…!

Mercury retrograde ahoy!

September 18 sees the start of a new Mercury retrograde. Honestly, is it really August and is there another Mercury retrograde already? Time really does seem to be flying at the moment, right? This one is an interesting Mercury retrograde as it’s taking place in the sign of Libra, which is the relationship sign. So now after the reverse cycle of the love planet Venus, we get Mercury reversing in the Venus sign of Libra.

If you have fallen in love with your partner or ex all over again recently, you have tuned into the heavens. If you know you need to do things differently when it comes to love, ditto. Mercury retrograde in Libra will mean something different to all the signs (see below for what it means for you) but there is an overall, over-arching theme which is “It’s time to have a rethink about our relationships”. Perhaps you realised that you have been taking someone for granted recently. This Mercury retrograde will help you put in place new ways of being to make sure you don’t do that anymore. For some, it’s a chance to reunite with an ex. And here is more info about what Mercury retrograde in Libra means for you specifically.

You can expect to be doing some rethinking and reconsidering re cash, property and/or your possessions during this cycle. Your self-esteem and what you really value is also up for a rethink. It may be time to reconsider what’s important to you in life. It sounds like a big question and, yes, it is. But you only get the occasional chance to really revise such major issues. So what really matters to you? Is your current lifestyle supporting what you believe to be important in the great scheme of things? If you’ve been feeling negative about yourself lately, this cycle asks you to think again about your opinion of yourself! What good does it do you to be small? This cycle is also about cash, property and possessions. On the one hand, you do need to be extra careful in all financial transactions as there is extra room for confusion. On the other, most positively, it’s a very good time to rethink your finances and some of you will even see money you’ve been waiting for finally making its way into your bank account. If you’re trying to make a big decision re buying or selling properly, gather the facts first. The key with Mercury retrograde is always to let the cycle unfold without making any major decisions, if you can. Mercury retrograde usually leads to more information being sent your way, so it’s best to wait and see what transpires before you act.

Saturn’s Move – huge news for us all!

And then we come to what is really the headline news of the month (well, alongside the eclipses!) It’s the move of Saturn from Scorpio into Sagittarius. There have been rumblings on and off about this move for some time but this time it’s for real. Saturn is the great teacher of the zodiac and as he goes around our charts, we learn different things about our self and about life. Saturn will be in Sagittarius for the rest of this year and next year and into 2017. This is what it means for you:

No matter how old you are, no matter how long you’ve been living away from home, or whether you’re a grandchild or you have grandchildren or both, one of the major issues for you with Saturn’s arrival in your fourth house is independence. And while you’re working on that aspect of your life, see also, inner stability. These are the major life lessons on offer to you from the Cosmos now. Accept them gracefully and you will prosper.

You are being given a big opportunity to take a deep breath and look inwards. It’s time to think about your roots and where you come from, as well as where you belong.

For some of you, reminders from the past will come creeping out of the woodwork and some childhood fears will be addressed. OK, as you sit here reading this, that might sound a little scary. But why do you think that people around the world pay psychiatrists and the like to listen while they talk about their childhood? There’s a simple reason—because it can unlock fears. If you can see where your fears come from you will be better equipped to deal with them. We all have stuff that we base our emotions on. What happened to you as a child that holds you back now? Saturn’s move through your fourth house gives you a chance to rebuild ‘broken emotions’.

For folk who have already faced their childhood fears, there are other lessons in store. Being more grown up when dealing with your family is one possibility for growth here. No matter how old you are, it’s time to act maturely where your nearest and (hopefully) dearest are concerned. Responsibilities of the family kind are coming your way. For some, this can mean having a child while for others it can mean simply sorting out your family home—physically rebuilding or fixing that leaky roof, for example.

Your parents could help you if you’re still talking to them. If you’re not talking to them you may well have the chance to work things out with them during the next few years. You have a chance to make your dreams come true where family is concerned now but the energies you are working with are demanding and won’t give you much for free.

Where your life can be transformed – look to Pluto!

And then we have Pluto, the planet of change and transformation, also very predominant this month. Pluto takes about 248 years to go around the skies and right now he is in Capricorn. Here’s a bit about what this means for you …

Your personal life is in a state of change – you could even go as far as to say it’s in a state of transformation. The things which used to be “fun” for you to do might not be the same as the things you want to spend your weekend doing now. You have new priorities. What’s your idea of fun c. 2015? You have to move with the times. We all do. If you’re a creative Virgo and the past few years of hard work have worn you down and terribly dampened your creative spark, then what’s happening now is all about re-igniting that.

And then another eclipse!

And the month ends with a Full Moon eclipse. Intense! More about that in your daily and weekly horoscope as the month unfolds. But know that it means September can be a turnaround month. This is where the eclipse is affecting each sign:

Aries – your whole life can change! What do you want for yourself?

Taurus – it’s turnaround time for you spiritually

Gemini – some friendships are changing in big ways

Cancer – the cosmic focus is on you professionally – shine!

Leo – changes are afoot re travel and study

Virgo – money and sex are in focus – allow things to evolve!

Libra – your love life is under the cosmic spotlight

Scorpio – your daily life is about to look different

Sagittarius – something is changing re a child, a romance or a creative project

Capricorn – life at home is changing, or something connected to family

Aquarius – it’s time for you to think differently or change the way you’re communicating

Pisces – financially, things are changing, developments are afoot!

And finishing off with the New Moon and Full Moon times for the month ahead

Have a great month and make the most of it! It might be a bumpy ride but the thing to remember with eclipses is that while they might be rather tumultuous at the time, they are basically all about getting you on the right path. So whatever happens now is happening for your higher good. And re Saturn, well, he is the teacher of the zodiac. So we all need to be good students!
