Chart readings available using a unique perspective from Modern & Ancient Astrology
At the beginning of September, we will start to feel Neptune opposing Mars, exact on the 3rd September. Even before the beginning of September there was an energy of confusion… what is fantasy and what is reality. The realisation that life might not be the way you planned or where you thought you were going. Neptune is the shapeshifter, the illusionist in which deception or misleading plans have occurred, yet at the same time it can inspire dreams and beliefs. Mars likes clear objectives and goals, so Neptune will be diffusing the energy of Mars…water puts the fire out, so lessens the tension. There could be a desire to escape but it might be just a time to slow down and recuperate, to reconsider or reflect on your options. You may feel a little depleted, so a quiet time might be the answer.
Mars is trine Pluto, so there is potential to make reforms in your life, build good structures, as this will be more effective to plan. Pluto is transforming, so go with what feels right for you. The chaos and change of Uranus in our lives, gives us a different view of our personal lives or the world to sustain the changes you wish. You can formulate objectives for long term efforts now and make changes as there is a greater understanding of your motivations to lay a solid framework. There is growth and maturity so be creative.
Saturn in Aquarius is for innovative plans to move forward in the long term, in our lives, in our work or in our interactions with people. Aquarius is about people, leaving behind what we thought we should do and now doing what truly resonates for ourselves. Retrograde Neptune in Pisces allows us to open ourselves to something new, something we may not have considered before. This could be a time for grieving due to disappointments or delusions of the past, which is an important part to let go and move forward. Saturn is trine Mercury so an excellent time for planning or finishing tasks, as there is the ability to focus and apply yourself.
Relationships are a big theme…a lot of conversation
September has a distinct relationship focus as Mercury and Venus are having an ongoing conversation in Libra. Pluto squares Venus ensuring you don’t give away your power so you can remain true to yourself. Look at what works for you and what doesn’t, as this is a time to apply what you have learned. You could be upset by a someone’s behaviour, so stand up for yourself and your beliefs, express yourself honestly especially if you were unable to do so in the past. It could be uncomfortable at times as Pluto is transformative, so look closely at your relationships, how you value those and leave the old patterns in the past. Pluto trine Mars will give extra drive and energy, so now a good time to implement new strategies.
Venus trine Jupiter will create inspiration, light-heartedness, wanting to spend more time with others because in Libra, it a perfect time for relationships. With Jupiter’s expansive energy, there could be an urge to break free from restrictions. This could lead to many distractions or a tendency to be lazy, so resist the urge, follow your heart, take a walk, a day in bed… indulge yourself. Venus is square Pluto currently, so Jupiter softens this harder aspect, reminding you have choices. Jupiter wants to learn and stay open for the new road ahead.
Midmonth Venus enters Scorpio, bringing more passion and intensity to relationships. There could be resentfulness or an inability to forget past hurts which may cause problems, so take care in dealing with others. Neptune opposes the Sun, again think clearly, ponder options, and do not make hard and fast decisions.
