Mercury will be retrograde for most of October. He turns backwards on October 4 and remains so until October 25. He travels from 2 degrees of Scorpio to 16 degrees of Libra. The area of your chart that has those degrees shows where Mercury insists you do some serious examination. Everyone will have to give time and effort to straightening out relationship issues.

There are two eclipses in October. Eclipses bring endings. They are highly auspicious times for spiritual matters. They are excellent times to meditate, recite mantras, chant and pray. The lunar eclipse is on October 8 at 15 degrees of Libra. The solar eclipse is on October 23 at 0 degrees of Scorpio. Those who have personal planets at these degrees you will be the ones who are most effected by the eclipses.

Leave the serious business for the first and last week of the month and try to enjoy the beauty of Fall for the retrograde influenced in between weeks.

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.

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.

The Sun and Saturn meet to review your behavior and give you new assignments if you’ve done well the past four months or send you back to square one if you haven’t. They insist you let go of fantasies and wishful thinking and go with what’s real. You may feel a bit deflated but you can see the big picture. No planting this weekend.

Sunday, August 10 – Moon in Aquarius, VC 6:12 pm. Today’s full moon brings you back to August of 1999. Think about that time and how it may relate to what’s going on right now. Your thoughts have power and can be used to help others. Open your heart and let it influence your mind. Be the stable force as you meditate, pray, or brainstorm in a group.
