The 9th month, in pregnancy is usually when the long awaited birth takes place, when mother and child part, becoming individual entities. Well the 9th month of September this year follows a similar theme, as ‘sep-arations’ are emphasised this ‘Sep-tember’!
For as the month begins, children and adults go their separate ways, back to school and work; separatist thoughts continue to divide nations and Scotland decides whether to permanently separate from the UK and file for divorce!
Although on the plus side, the Sun begins the month in the Sign of analytical Virgo. So there will be no hasty decisions made, as this pragmatic and cautious Sign carefully considers all the finer details before coming to any final resolution. While this is further reinforced by Mercury’s movement into the balanced Sign of the scales, Libra, on the 2nd, as there is no Sign better at weighing up the pros and cons before reaching a verdict. However, it is all well and good taking into account all concerns, but there comes a time when you need to prioritise. Although with Neptune clouding the issues for most of September, this could prove tricky.
As Neptune’s stationary position opposing Virgo means it is quite literally impossible to ‘see the wood for the trees’ in issues over divisions of land and all else. So any judgments formed at this time may later be found to have been based on false ground, as illusive Neptune not only obstructs clarity, but also conceals facts. Furthermore, when Planets are stationary, a period of inner contemplation is preferable, unless revisiting previously unsettled matters. So it would be an ideal occasion to resolve any remaining faults regarding care given to vulnerable individuals, especially with the 9th’s finalising Full Moon in compassionate Pisces, but not for initiating anything new. However, sometimes decisions just cannot be avoided, so at these times it is favourable to use gut instinct over logic, but do not be surprised if further down the line other factors come to light.
As with shocking Uranus at odds with communicative Mercury for almost the entire month this seems likely. This also spells out upsets to the smooth running of the day to day, as with Libra in Mercury there should be harmonious, co-operative everyday practices. However, unexpected Uranus looks sets to bring discord, whether from transport strikes, protests, outbreaks, weather storms or even unexplained activities, as the U.F.O site of Roswell is starred this month. Furthermore, the karmic Moon’s Nodes still lingers in Libra, so by the 23rd prepare to witness worsening events. With the Sun entering Libra, shortly followed by a New Moon and added friction from Pluto’s regained forward motion. This particularly affecting the situation in Afghanistan and causing further anger in Palestine. While, in the US, the Stock exchange may well see an upturn, but the White House faces further sudden shake ups concerning shared assets. As well as recent activities highlighting the threat of terrorism as the anniversary of 9/11 is prominent this month.
Meanwhile the vote for Scottish independence may bring up unexpected consequences especially in the area of legislation. As Scotland may not exactly achieve all they desire, but the New Moon will shine a light on any hidden information regarding England’s situation.
While Jupiter in Leo throughout September keeps the focus on the plight of children this month, as this legal Planet labours over well overdue worldwide reforms. However, with Saturn and Mars still in conflicting Scorpio, it will prove difficult to push through any concrete reforms, as further abuse and violence towards the young is revealed. Although, a helping hand comes when Mars moves into judicial Sagittarius on the 14th, making a more beneficial aspect to Jupiter. As well as decreasing the threat of sexual violence, as focus shifts more towards deep-rooted and religious beliefs. However, Mars then finds itself at odds with Venus in Virgo and Pisces Neptune, as foreigners come under the spotlight. With immigration control and human trafficking causing anger, along with the human sacrifice in fighting foreign lands. While, added to this the presence of the Pisces Full Moon on the 9th could bring hazards such as drowning, as well as having an unravelling effect on the situation in Iran.
Although on a positive note, the movement of the Sun from Leo into Virgo should offer a less dramatic and more structured approach. This on a daily basis seeing individuals get back into the ritual of work, rest and play, gaining some satisfaction from this steady routine when Venus progresses into Virgo on the 5th. As after any summer excesses, this Sign aids individuals and bank balances to look a little healthier, before revving up again for winter festivities. However, it will seem difficult to make any real advancement this month, as the Planets never quite get into sync at the same time, this seen as the month closes when Mercury moves into Scorpio just as Venus is about to progress into Libra.
The upshot of this causing frustrations, coupled with shocks from Uranus and confusion from Neptune. This will be obvious in France and Cyprus, as unexpected events stir up anger particularly regarding finances. While China and Egypt will experience further aggressions, along with Russia, as attempts at peace continue. However, Mexico and Singapore may see more positive everyday activity, if Venus is channelled correctly. So this month the Sign of Virgo may try to provide structure, but it seems likely to be built on shaky foundations!
