Astrological monthly forecast for September 2014
After a violent August 2014 the world tries to pick it up courage back in literal and figurative sense. In an apparent energy of calmness and confidence, we go back to the basics, back to work, back to school. Back to what has previously has occurred. ...
In the first half of September, we look back at the events, to determine the cause and above all trying to recover and learn from what went wrong. Big problems require practical solutions. In mid-September, this energy is disrupted by a serious misinterpretation or misunderstanding which could lead to a serious situation. Ostrich politics, opposition instead of cooperation and extreme weather exacerbate the situation. Uranus in Aries, Mars in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Leo. Three significant planets in Fire. This means a period of overheated protest, riots, bloodshot and religious war. But also extreme weather conditions as huge fires, flooding, volcanic eruptions, and earthquakes will be frequenter. All of this will be enlarged by Jupiter in fiery Leo.
For most part of this month our cosmic messenger Mercury will rush through Libra, making thoughtfulness and diplomatic posture predominate. Communication will be considerate and no decision will be forced.
Venus will be this month mostly in the sign of Virgo. Mercury is associated with Virgo and Venus is associated with Libra ... So, these personal planets travel through each other’s sign and that is the reason why that the energy generally feels calm and anchored, especially in our social life.

Mars will remain until the end of October 2014 in Sagittarius and could be explosive, but also give the feeling that anything is possible.
The entry of Mars in Sagittarius is the prelude to a cosmic covenant Fire between Mars, Uranus and Jupiter, which will be formed at the end of this month. There could be information which totally changes our beliefs about the limiting of our ability. This groundbreaking aspect allows us to learn by experience and gives us the courage to actually push our boundaries.
