September is Virgo’s month. It’s a time to plan and get organized. We have been programmed to entering a higher grade as we begin the new school year in September. It works to continue that feeling and use the month to upgrade our lives.
It will be a calm month, except for a disruption when Pluto turns into direct motion on the day of the Autumnal Equinox. You’ll hit some bumpy water at that time.
Mercury starts a retrograde period on October 4. He will be retrograde until October 25. Use the days in September to make the big changes, buy the big-ticket items, and start new jobs and projects. You’ll be glad you did.
Monday, September 22 – Moon in Virgo. The Sun enters Libra at 10:29 pm. Summer is ending and you want to get ready for Fall. Pluto stops and turns around to go into direct motion. This is a powerful event and can bring eruptions of many kinds. Keep a low profile and watch your back. The day is too transitional to start anything but be sure to get tomorrow’s important work done.
Tuesday, September 23 – Moon in Virgo, VC 8:15 am. Clean up after any explosions, physical or emotional, that may have happened yesterday. Put away your summer toys and clothes and recycle what you haven’t used for a while. It’s a good time to bring things to a conclusion. Realize where you have come to the end of the line. It’s the dark of the moon. Create a “Summers over” ritual.
Wednesday, September 24 – Moon in Libra. Today’s new moon marks the real beginning of Fall. It’s a good day to rebalance your relationship and other areas of your life that seem out of whack. You have a good ability for negotiation and making peace. Venus rules Libra and she offers you vibrations of beauty and love on this day of her moon. She quickens your perceptions and intuitions and inspires you to produce a work of beauty.
Thursday, September 25 – Moon in Libra. Bring the spirit of gentleness and calm into all you do today. You’ll be able to find compromises and win-win solutions with minimal effort on your part. Opportunities will come out of left field and they won’t be the ones you expected. Embrace the people in your life who give to you and show them how much you appreciate them.
Friday, September 26 – Moon in Libra, VC from 8:38 am until 10:29 am when it enters Scorpio. Finish up negotiations you started earlier this week. You’ll feel the change of energy in the afternoon and will want to work on your own projects. You’ll feel less like pleasing people and more like moving your concerns to the top of the list of things to do. It’s a good evening to be alone and write in your journal and give yourself some breathing space.
Saturday, September 27 – Moon in Scorpio. This is a very fertile day when you can put in your Fall plantings. Plant bulbs in random places so that you get surprises in the Spring. Mercury slides into Scorpio to give your thoughts more depth. You’ll be interested in finding out the why things happen the way they happen. It’s a good day to do research.
Sunday, September 28 – Moon in Scorpio, VC from 4:31 pm until 6:50 pm when it enters Sagittarius. You may be too driven to rest so find something to do that grabs your concentration. It’s a serious day when you won’t put up with anyone’s foolishness. Curb the tendency to be in control, whether it’s over big issues or little ones like what to cook for dinner.
