Buckle up and wear a mask! September is a month of intensity. It will feel as if the world has lost its collective
mind, and perhaps it has!
Although many of us are already alone due to the Pandemic, during this month we may feel more inclined to spend time alone, evaluate our lives, go inward and reflect on our past experiences. The energy in September will be felt on all levels and this may retrigger our past traumas. This may be the perfect time to work on and release painful situations and events we have been holding onto for years. What would it be like to live without the burden of these heavy traumatic memories? It is all possible. Somatic Experience Therapy is a great place to start!
What do we want to change? What kind of person do we want to be? This is all about reassessing, revisiting, contemplating and reviewing. This is about self awareness.
Know thyself and have compassion for yourself on the
Here we go!
Between September 9-12 there will be 7 planets retrograde:
Jupiter—is retrograde in Capricorn-until September 13. This forces us to review lessons we did not learn and brings up issues of cultural and social expectations. This brings up higher thinking.
- Saturn—is retrograde in Capricorn—until September 29. Saturn represents boundaries, responsibility, karma, government and institutions.
- Pluto-is retrograde in Capricorn—until October 4. This has us facing our unconsciousness. It brings a test of faith.
- ***Mars is retrograde in Aries—until November 13. See below.
- Neptune—is retrograde in Pisces until November 28. This strips away illusions and cover-ups. Dealing with addictions and any form of escapism. When Neptune is retrograde we seek oneness within ourselves. The message is separation is an illusion and that we are all one.
- Chiron is retrograde in Aries until December 15th, 2020. When Chiron, the wounded healer, goes retrograde, the
wounds that have been buried deep in our subconscious come to light. It’s like a window of opportunity that allows us to fully glance at our souls past journey,
- Uranus is retrograde in Taurus until January 14, 2021. During this time, we can expect the unexpected. Uranus is the “Awakener,” and it brings sudden changes and shocks. In addition, there will be three days in September that will be very potent because they are a Master Number 33. This is considered in numerology to be a fated day of teaching and building. September 11, September 20 and September 29. This Master number promises these will be powerful days in the world.
Fun Fact: September 9th
September 9th, turns out to be — according to all the birth data in the U.S. — the most common birthday in the U.S. In fact, the month of September as a whole has the most birthdays in America.
September 9, Mars is retrograde in Aries. This brings up things from the past. Protests, weapons, violence—anything that has been suppressed. This will refer to how we manage repressed anger. This transit that can generate internal conflicts as well as creating fights and struggles with people in our lives or in the environment. Please be mindful, avoid reacting on impulse, and discover healthy ways to process and release difficult emotions. Unlike other planets when they are retrograde and people feel scattered, Mars retrograde is focused, determined, and ready to take action, especially when it is in its home sign, of Aries. Mars Retrograde can bring up a lot of anger and lead to confrontation and arguments. So be aware of this. The world is beginning to explode with emotion.
September 12th, 2020 – Jupiter Goes Direct in Capricorn. This will help to overcome obstacles
Vedic Astology uses the North and South lunar nodes, Rahu and Ketu. Rahu and Ketu are known as shadow planets. Both are very powerful and it is important to see what they are up to now. This month, after 18 months, Rahu and Ketu will shift signs from Gemini/Sagittarius to Taurus/Scorpio.
September 19: Rahu, the North Node enters Taurus and Ketu, the South Node enters Scorpio until March 15, 2022
Rahu in Taurus and Ketu in Scorpio are exalted in these signs which means there will be a time of great healing that will come in a few months. Possibly a vaccine is on the way. When Rahu and Ketu leave the signs Gemini and Sagittarius, there is always a healing.
Ketu and Mars are in the Gandanta zone (sensitive and karmic)
Planets are gandanta when they are in the last degrees of a water sign and first degrees of a fire sign. The planets that are gandanta now are Mars (in Aries a fire sign) and Ketu (in Scorpio a water sign) which will cause great fires and floods.
These placements represent huge problems with water and fire. We will continue to see hurricanes, fires and earthquakes. As Mars transits retrograde in Aries, there will be the most extremes in weather and fires around the world. California is already seeing the highest temperatures on record and wild fires have begun. The remainder of 2020 will see an extreme crisis in weather, fires, and violence.
Time: July 22 to November 24, 2020 Maximum Impact will be September 3 to October 11.
September 23rd-24th – Mercury Square Saturn, Mercury Opposite Mars. Watch negative thinking! This
can cause misunderstandings. Frustration escalates. Arguments seem inevitable.
September 29th, 2020 – Saturn Goes Direct
September 29th, 2020 – Mars Squares Saturn. This is
their second square. The first one was August 24, 2020 and Mars was direct with Saturn retrograde. This time Mars is retrograde and Saturn is direct. The third and final square will be January 12, 2021.
Mars is the planet of action, motivation and war! Saturn is the planet of boundaries, restrictions and responsibility. Saturn is also considered the Lord of Karma and this is where we learn our lessons. Saturn does not tend to make anything easy. When these two planets—that are in THEIR OWN SIGN—Mars in its home of Aries and Saturn in its home of Capricorn—SQUARE EACH OTHER there is extreme power in each opponent.
On a global level, Mars Square Saturn has the potential to highlight the growing tensions around the world when it comes to freedom (Mars) and the rules being laid out by the government and world leaders (Saturn). Saturn will want to impose rules and Mars is the rebel.
Interesting to note the day before the election in the US: November 2, 2020
The celestial object known as 2018VP1 is predicted to come close to Earth on November 2. Comets and asteroids are historically known to be signs or symbols of things to come. I believe this is a powerful symbol of the extremes of change and transformation to come.
Although this all seems dire and too much to process, ULTIMATELY this brings us all a great healing and an incredible transformation. Going through the dark to come out into the light. And yes, we all wanted to be here for this time of great change in ourselves and the world.
Pace yourself, rest when needed. This is a time to go inward. Meditate and practice the art of self care. We will come out of this! There is a light at the end of the tunnel!
Many Blessings to All!
