Forward momentum
Picking up speed after a summer season slow down {try saying that 5 times fast
; ) }
Stabilizing into your body


Sun:: in Virgo until 9/22, then changes to Libra

Moon:: New Moon in Virgo on Sunday, 9/9, Full Moon in Aries on 9/24

Mercury:: changes signs twice this month. Beginning of month in Virgo (9/5) - figuring things out, organized, efficient. Mid month, focusing on solutions & diplomacy in Libra (9/21). Two signs in one month very different flavor than Mercury in one sign for two months (Mercury in Leo since June 29th)

Venus:: enters Scorpio on 9/9. We are in the shadow of the retrograde which begins 10/5

Last Venus rx was spring March + April, 2017

This month you get a flavor of what the Venus rx has in store for you when Venus opposes Uranus on 9/12

Mars:: is direct in Capricorn: energy, stamina, action. Changes signs on 9/10, re-enters Aquarius with new focus on how to take action on ideas stirred up in the Mars rx. 9/25.

Saturn:: goes direct 9/6: build out the plan after re-tooling the blueprints - bigger projects, focus

Pluto:: goes direct on 9/30: rebirth after deep underworld journey (wherever you’ve been underworlding + seeing what’s buried beneath the surface, wrestling with demons + transforming it). Now you’re going forward. Enough digging in. Let it what needs to die, die. This is the sprouting time to grow forward.

Chiron:: retrogrades back into Pisces on 9/25

Virgo season: getting organized, best health/wellness practices, back to rhythm of fall


Ending a 3-part series
Act 3 of a Mars Uranus square (May, August, Sept 18): breakthroughs, inventive, creative


Beginning a 3-part series
Venus (love + money) Uranus (whoa, where did that come from? Unexpected) Opposition, 3 month thing
First installment: unexpected
2nd October: review
3rd December + changing signs
Uranus always asks you to be authentic.
Harvest Full Moon
NEW MOON in Virgo on Sunday, September 9th
Theme:: Super chill + mellow
Illuminates:: Physical body, getting organized & efficient
Shadow-side:: Anal retentive perfectionism
Rituals:: What messages are you receiving from your body?  Make a plan for the end of the year until the holidays about wellness. Simplify + purify. What are simple, gentle ways to get yourself on path or in a more vibrant place? Look at movement, water intake, naturopathic/acupuncture, foods, nutrition. Non-emotional look at where you are + where and how you want to be/feel.


FULL MOON IN Aries on Monday, September 24
Theme:: Harvest Moon
Illuminates:: Taking responsibility for your actions. Re-parenting your Inner child.
Shadow-side:: T-Square, tough hot full moon, impatience; I want what I want when I want it
Planetary Influences:: Moon/Chiron, Sun/Mercury/Ceres, both Moon and Sun are square Saturn/Vesta “T-Square”
Rituals:: Purification Fire + Light/Smoke Nourishment
Write down what is getting under your skin + see if there is any connection to wounded inner child. Burn that piece of paper as fast as you can without burning down the house.  Now light a candle or incense herbs to nourish the environment with a soft light or fragrant smoke.
Now soften. Let go of impatience + stubbornness. Soften, soften, soften some more. What makes you feel soft + compassionate? Do that. Speakly kindly toward yourself. Be gentle with yourself. Consider the power of your words, both inside your own head + with others. What do you need and how can you give it to yourself, rather than project your childhood wounds onto everyone else or expect others to give you what you need?
If you need someone to talk to, only reach out to those who can help you stay grounded, practical and clear-headed. Even better, if you have a wisdom practice, do those that tap you into your own inner wisdom and the medicine that lies within the pain. Breathe + stay in the present moment.




To get a jump start on stabilizing for the shifts these cosmic shifts will instigate, below are the flowers I recommend for this lunar cycle:



Magnifies: Soft, feminine love + acceptance; self-support; ease & relief from sense of inner fairy godmother; awareness of unseen support

Dissolves: Bearing the weight of something heavy alone; wrestling back and forth about something, feeling torn; deep sadness, grief, feeling “I can’t get what I want;” loneliness, anguish, confusion

Superpower: self-support - we are exactly the support that we need for ourselves.

No more struggle - freedom from dualism, wondering, anguishing about something. Relax into the unknown. Entire world has your back. You are already everything you need. You have an army of support, both behind and within you.
