Mood of the Moment
In September, it’s primarily about love – and it is to clean up “love” of its many ideas and conditionings during this time. The push comes chiefly from Saturn in Scorpio, scrutinising our emotionally charged ideas, providing the simple question “Is there love in your heart?” If the answer is yes, it calls for unreserved involvement. Not with a specific person, not to a particular situation – although all this may be connected – but it is essentially about a total surrender to this Yes.
To follow love unconditionally and to be faithful to it is far more than a “relationship”, it is a spiritual journey. Neptune, Chiron and Jupiter know all this – all of them “soft” forces that are now powerfully releasing old patterns and thereby opening us up for a much bigger adventure. The last Saturn-Pluto sextile supports this process with depth and unconditional commitment, which already began to develop since last December. Since it is not about relationship but heart space, the constellation will also be beneficial to those who face life rather alone.
Cooperation is likely to be difficult during this month whenever it is about a synergy of thought and action; communication also runs more frequently oblique. Conclusion: less keynote talks, less joint ventures, more of a being together. Or even easier: think less, do less, more Being.
Aries: In the first half of the month your forward momentum will be frequently slowed down. Others or even you question your goals and actions or unforeseen events take the wind out of your sails. Gear yourself up so you are less frustrated and can enjoy the slower pace much more. In the second half of the month everything is much easier; simply be aware to approach others in a friendly way. Listen and have harmonious conversations, but not at the expense of clarity.
Taurus: An unusual month. On the one hand, Venus calls for absolute sincerity and for you to engage deeply with people and situations. At the same time three soothing trines help you to pass quietly and calmly through this intense period. Neptune opens you up for all things spiritual and artistic, Chiron provides grounding yet at the same time lets you accept with ease whatever life offers. And Jupiter, also an opening force, graces you with emotional harmony and loving togetherness.
Gemini: In September it is about communication. The challenges revolve around various themes: Pluto requires more depth and less self-righteousness, while Uranus calls for new ways of thinking and new forms of communication. In addition there’s Jupiter, who on the one hand grants joy and enthusiasm, but can, on the other hand, make you self-satisfied, lazy and arrogant. A resource in this month is Mars, with which it is easy for you to take action rather than mentally swaying back and forth forever. Now is a time to act rather than reflect.
Cancer: The first three weeks are primarily for you to bring your own affairs in order and thereby pave the ground for a positive future. The theme of the second week is relationships and commitment, while in the third week the main emphasis shifts to spiritual or psychological growth processes. From full moon onwards relationships are back in focus: it is not just about opening your heart, but also to search for the truth together. You don’t need to prove something to anyone.
Leo: In the first week striding powerfully ahead alternates with sensitive retraction. Take responsibility for your wellbeing, pay attention to your body and allow yourself some rest when you need it. The middle of the month brings challenges and delays, some things will falter. But no need to worry, this will rapidly change again. Come up with some unusual steps, and soon things will move ahead again. In the last third of the month connect with others, look at them from the heart, and take their concerns into account.
Virgo: Actually, everything what is called for in September is totally “your thing”: prudence, overview, clarity, order, modesty, helpfulness. Yet now you tend to feel quickly overwhelmed or attacked. Two resources are at your disposal: humour and heart. If it just does not work out with humour – your heart is definitely ready. Look with loving eyes first at yourself and your anguish, then expand your vision to see the entire situation and all others involved.
Libra: In this month you have the chance to fall in tune with yourself, others and life. All powerful planets are standing at your side. The only thing required of you is a clear view of the facts and the willingness to face up to them. Once you do that, it is as if you are lifted by angel’s wings beyond all challenges. Something relaxes and equanimity arises. Courage, strength, understanding and acceptance evolve and from there trust and zest for life grows.
Scorpio: A beautiful September. Just be aware to slow your pace and moderate your goals during the first half. This will take you further than the battle against forces that work with a different set of rules than you do. With Venus entering your zodiac sign more important areas will open up: heart, beauty and unity. As long as you take responsibility for your feelings, all forces are playing into your hands. A growth process that began in December also comes to a successful completion.
Sagittarius: Add sensitivity to your fiery enthusiasm. Heartfelt warmth, courage and energy are available to you in abundance. Use them also to virtually support others, because that is easy for you now. Show and nurse your caring, helpful and protective side. The challenge is to listen closely, so you know what exactly is needed in a situation. Ultimately, it’s about the ability to learn, as you are now moving in an area you are only partially familiar with.
Capricorn: In the first half of the month you can recharge yourself. Pluto supports development, healing, regeneration; it makes you strong, dynamic and confident. Mid-month, there’s the risk of miscommunication, because you’re too focused on winning. Try to better understand your counterpart, continue to communicate and negotiate. During the last third of September calm down and open your heart space: for humans and other creatures, for nature and art, for the dark sides as well as for the light.
Aquarius: Your life is really getting off the found again, move with it. Stress occurs only when the momentum gets stuck in the head. This causes restlessness and too much remains undone, which is an additional worry for you. Best is for energetic activity to alternate with restful breaks, during which you truly only do what regenerates you. Disputes with others can now be nerve-wracking if you change your position too often and thus disconcert them.
Pisces: Especially in the first half of the month communication isn’t always easy and actions can quickly grind to a halt. Your resource in September is Venus: whenever you remember, look from the heart at yourself and the world and focus your attention to what is beautiful and pleasant and to all that which touches your heart. In the second half of September, things will be more in a state of flux and your heart meditation of the recent weeks bears fruit as you fall in tune with all aspects of your life.
