September 2018

September 2018

We salute the final quarter of the year of the Dog 2018.

September is the month of the Autumn equinox for the Northern Hemisphere and the beginning of Spring for the Southern Hemisphere.
This energetically powerful turning point asks us to prepare for the coming Winter, by asking for protection and health for the cold days and be grateful for all the good that Mother Earth brought us this Summer.

However, fiery Jupiter in the Water sign of Scorpio revealed its most extreme side.
The past hot Summer was characterized by extreme drought, fire and heat, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and floods.

During the Eclipse Season, as many as 50% of the planets were in retrograde. However, the red fighter Mars "marches" again since August 27, 2018, so the time of action has come again.
Saturn in Capricorn goes direct in the first week of September 2018 and Pluto in Capricorn is moving forward slowly at the end of September 2018.

Things are moving forward, so projects that have suffered delays or bogged down during this Summer will have another chance to flourish.

The first day of September 2018 is the beginning of meteorological Autumn.
Mercury in Leo leaves the fire sign of Leo and joins the Sun in Virgo on September 7, 2018.
This earthly and efficient collaboration is a good time to get plans moving again!

On Thursday, September 6, 2018, Saturn in Capricorn turns direct at 2º32!
Saturn was retrograde since April 18, 2018. Now that Saturn has resumed its direct orbit around the Sun, the time has come to put the lessons learned into practice.
Saturn makes a promising "restart" because it is accompanied by positive aspects of Mercury and Uranus and the regular star Polis!
The Great Trine that is formed represents a transitional phase in life to make positive and gradual changes.
It promises success and shows in the first three weeks of September 2018 a strong impulse to pull ourselves together and to make the most of the lessons learned last Summer.
The direct Saturn is a good time to make important decisions and for business negotiations especially with regard to real estate and shares.
The earthly cooperation between Saturn and Uranus in Taurus leads to further changes and innovations on an economic/financial level such as alternative methods of payment, barter, crowd-funding and innovative economic solutions.
At the same time we can look forward to the splendid connection in Water between Jupiter in Scorpio, Pluto in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces.
This constructive and positive Earth and Water collaboration offers inventive and practical solutions for the most complex problems.
On our way towards economic reform, justice and sustainability.

The fresh New Moon in Virgo of September 9, 2018 brings energy and focus.
The New Moon is conjunct Mercury and trine Saturn, Pluto and Uranus, so this cosmic influence feels like turning over a new leaf, a new opportunity.

From September 2, 2018 the seductive Venus in Libra enters her shadow period before retrogradation next month.
Venus swims the mysterious waters of Scorpio from September 10, 2018.
From an astrological point of view, Venus does not agree with Scorpio.
The planet of love does not feel at home in Scorpio which is ruled by the Red Warrior Mars.
In the complex Scorpion, the harmonious nature of Venus is mixed with passion, desires and temptation, but also with contradiction, jealousy, fear, guilt and shame. Until mid-November 2018, Venus will be retrograde, so this is a period to come to terms with issues concerning love, intimacy, social activities and finances.

The whole month of September 2018, Venus in Scorpio, Mars in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus are at odds, which forces us to look at situations in a whole new light.
This planetary tension "triggers" the theme of sexual abuse, sexual harassment or the acceptance of sexual diversity.
Partly because of the influence of Jupiter in Scorpio, on an international scale men and women increasingly come forward with painful stories about sexual abuse, intimidation or not being accepted on grounds of of sexual orientation.

On September 12, 2018, an exact sextile takes place between Jupiter and Pluto. For the third time in 2018, this harmonious connection between the Great Benefactor Jupiter and the transformational Pluto offers us the opportunity to bring about positive reforms, both collectively and individually.

Mid-September 2018, the red warrior Mars will return to the air sign of Aquarius. Mars traveled through Aquarius from May 17, 2018 until August 13, 2018.
Everything that was devised during that long hot Summer can be completed during the second transit through Aquarius thanks to the acquired knowledge.
A period of power, speed and energy.
The second transit of the red Warrior Mars through Aquarius will continue until November 15, 2018.
The air sign of Aquarius makes us look at things in a reasoned and logical way.
However, as a fixed sign, Aquarius wants to go its own way.
Uranus is in Taurus. Taurus is also a fixed sign. Venus is in Scorpio. Scorpio is also a fixed sign.
This energy puts the gear into reverse and that can lead to demonstrations, irritations and frustrations.
Everything's not going to go as planned, rather staged and incremental rather than in revolutionary steps.

Up until mid-October 2018, Mars is conjunct the Southern Node in Aquarius, which reinforces the strong need to take a new direction, to start manifesting independently and to take destiny into our own hands.
The influence of Aquarius focuses on the future, however it leads to more polarization, separatism, fundamentalism and alienation.

On Thursday, September 20, 2018 the Moon in Aquarius is conjunct the red Warrior Mars.
With this dynamic energy we effortlessly move up a higher gear.
The Moon in Aquarius is square Uranus in Taurus and square Venus in Scorpio.
This T-square is a planetary field of tension and contradiction, especially in relationships and in the financial world.

On September 23, 2018 the Sun enters the sign of Libra.
The Autumn Equinox takes place and we celebrate the Feast of Madron, the day on which the Sun shines directly on the Equator. With this magical turning point, day and night are of equal length everywhere at once.
A positive and inspiring time in which the general focus is on togetherness and inner development.
On this particular day, the fast messenger Mercury enters the social Sign of Libra which indicates that until mid October 2018, our collective communication will focus on honesty, cooperation, justice, balance and how we share information with each other.

The Full Moon in Aries of September 25, 2018 faces Mercury in Libra square Saturn in Capricorn, so a T-Square will be formed. Due to this field of tension, there will be over-the-top reactions.
The Sun in Libra quincunx Uranus in Taurus makes nervous and tense as if something is about to happen. Whatever goes wrong today can’t be bridged or it will be very difficult.

At the end of September 2018, Pluto awakes after a long period of retrogradation since April 22, 2018.
The time comes to start activities that are of great concern to us.
Retrograde Pluto in Capricorn has tested our patience, but patience is ultimately rewarded.
However, its shadow period remains in force until mid-January 2019, so real progress can be expected from that period.
A period of positive political developments and reforms.
Despite this positive impulse and good intentions, it seems that the global economy will enter into a downward spiral.

Enjoy the scents and colors of Autumn, the diminishing light and the peace of the gradually receding nature.

I wish everyone a happy month of September.
