September 2021 Astrology
September begins with 5 planets in retrograde and before we end the month it will be 6! This gives us all the opportunity to review and reflect on our life. You know who you are, but who are you becoming?
Anxious? These powerful retrograde planets bring us all back to a place to reflect, review and rethink our life path in terms of growth. This is a great time to figure out where you want to be and how to get there. Listen to your anxiety, it is telling you something! What change do you need to make?
September is a 5 Month (September is a 9 + 5 year) in a 5 Year (2+0+2+1) which can be quite intense in terms of unexpected developments. This double-5 vibration is also an opportunity for all of us to make positive changes to our own behavior and habits. September is when we head back to school, making this a month to look at yourself and see what you need to learn on your earth journey.
Jupiter Retrograde in Aquarius until October 17 Jupiter retrograde may make you feel like your own growth, expansion and abundance is stuck. It’s like your wheels are spinning. You may not feel like your efforts are being rewarded or that your ambitions are progressing as fast or exactly how you’ve planned. Don’t worry. Zoom in on areas you feel need changing.
Saturn Retrograde—in Aquarius October 10 Work, health and karma are included here; just don’t forget the lessons you’ve learned. This is a time for deep soul searching, gaining perspective from our mistakes and emerging with wisdom and understanding.
Pluto Retrograde—in Capricorn until October 6. Examining our old fears, limiting beliefs, and entrenched unconscious patterns. Since Pluto is in Capricorn, we are dealing with matters specifically involving business, structure, patriarchal constructs, karma, stability and secrets, both on the individual and the collective level. We are called to examine our subconscious, our shadow (EVERYONE HAS ONE!) and transformation. Pluto is called the Planet of Destruction— the planet loves to implode anything that is inauthentic.
Neptune Retrograde in Pisces until December 1 - Dive into your subconscious, watch codependence and cut energy vampires out of your life! You may experience new spiritual dimensions, and come into contact with hidden spiritual gifts during this time."
Uranus Retrograde in Taurus to January 18. Uranus is called the Radical Change-maker. Since this retrograde occurs in Taurus, we’ll be dealing with themes around money, security, tangible objects, stability, our bodies, and where we place value. A Uranus in Taurus placement often creates quite a bit of tension—Taurus energy can be a bit stubborn and Uranus is the bringer of chaos and forced change.
Chiron Retrograde in Aries until December 19. Chiron is not a planet—it is a Comet that sits between Saturn and Uranus. Chiron is known as the Wounded Healer. When Chiron is retrograde it causes ANXIETY because it increases your awareness of your suffering and other’s suffering. It’s time you learn how to soothe and heal yourself even more deeply. It’s time to deal with unresolved trauma.
September 6 Virgo New Moon. This new moon brings self-awareness along with psychic ability. Intuition is heightened due to the location of the fixed Star Coxa, which is right next to this new moon. Coxa gives the ability for psychic ability and prophesy.
If you have been working on these areas of your life for a while, you may also find this New Moon a powerful portal of healing and transcendence for you.
September 14th, the Sun in Virgo is opposite Neptune in Pisces. This opposition is a confrontational aspect that will ‘force’ us to pay attention to something that we would rather overlook, because it feels like hard work. This brings confusion to your goals and aspirations. Neptune oppositions can be rather perplexing.
The question now is not “Who am I?” but “Who am I becoming?” Using the growth of our soul lens—all the possibilities of who you are becoming.
September 14- Mars enters Libra
Mars entering Libra is an important event this year because while in this air sign, it will align with the Sun on October 7. The energy is likely to build-up. Strong Mars energy can make us dynamic, energized, and courageous about forging ahead, but it can also trigger fiery intense emotions and lead to burnout if we are not careful. Finding balance will be key here.
September 17-23 Venus Square Saturn And Uranus. During this time Venus gets entangled with Saturn and Uranus. This is a time where we will be dealing with our emotions in order to gain clarity on what really matters, and what needs to change.
September 20- Pisces Full Moon The Harvest Moon is conjunct Neptune and opposite Mars. This will leave us feeling even more sentimental than usual. As the last major full moon of the summer, this full moon asks us to cleanse ourselves by letting go of some of the emotional baggage we’ve been carrying through the season so that there’s more room in our psyches and hearts to process the changes that lie ahead. Great day to put out your crystals! What accomplishments, skills, light, and creativity do you want to bring with you into the autumn season? What bad habits, regrets, and negative thoughts will you release? It’s ok to just let go.
September 22 -Sun enters Libra This is the same day as the Fall Equinox. On this day, there will be even hours of day and night, which will set the balanced tone for Libra season.
September 27 –October 18 Mercury Goes Retrograde in Libra Emotional intensity will be felt all around. Finding a balance between where you are in your life and what you would like to be. Mercury Retrograde in Libra is about seeking harmony internally. This transit can be used for reconciliation, or a final emotional closure.
If there are conflicts in your present relationship that you have tried to avoid, they will come to light. It will be necessary to show patience, listen to the other, and find a middle point between the proposals presented, to succeed.
September brings a fiery mix of emotions, plenty of moments to reflect on the past, and ultimately, a chance to start anew.
