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 8 – Moon in Pisces. Today’s full moon is the most mystical one of the year. It is the last full moon of summer – the harvest moon. It gives a subtle influence of divine peace and wisdom. Quiet your mind and heart to receive these gentle vibrations. Meditate by water if you can, or visualize water if you are in a city. Plant something today.

Tuesday, September 9 – Moon in Pisces, VC from 3:09 pm until 7:33 pm when it enters Aries. Listen carefully today. Mercury and Pluto challenge you to uncover the truth of the matter even though you may not like what you hear. It is also important to tell the truth, as you will be caught if you don’t. Pay attention to your physical and emotional health.

Wednesday, September 10 – Moon in Aries, VC 8:58 pm. Reality is in conflict with your romantic dreams. Take off the 3-D glasses and see what’s going on. Don’t believe all you hear or fall for some pretty words. You can be inspired to create a work of art. Sit in a receptive mode to download images and information that you can use. Do tomorrow’s important work today.

Thursday, September 11 – Moon VC Aries, enters Taurus 9:17 pm. Finish up what you’ve started and don’t begin anything new. Take today as a personal day if you can as you’ll feel better working on your own endeavors. You’ll want to follow your impulses, which is fine as long as they don’t lead you to do anything that requires a commitment.

Friday, September 12 – Moon in Taurus. Today is an earthy day when you are comfortable in the material world. It’s a good day for shopping for clothes, jewelry, photographs and art. Buy food to put away for winter. You’ll want to noodle around in the garden and yard. Don’t put anything off until tomorrow, as it’s a VC day so do the important stuff now.

Saturday, September 13 – Moon in Taurus, VC 9:13 am. If you took care of business yesterday, you can have fun today. Store away the odd ideas that came to you in last night’s dreams. Putter around in the garden and yard. Mars enters Sagittarius and the energy lightens up. Shoot an arrow in the air and follow it to a new adventure. It’s a great day to leave the phone and GPS behind and get lost and have to find your way back.

Sunday, September 14 – Moon in Gemini. Catch up on your correspondence. Contact friends and talk. Go to a conference or seminar and learn something new while you make new friends. Venus and Pluto add spice to the day with a touch of passion and desire. Ask a friend or a loved one to go have some fun with you in an interesting place.
