The cards for August 19th through September 22nd:
I use two decks for the monthly mystical report and this month both decks were quite empathic about the message for this month from August 20th-September 22nd (fall equinox or mabon)!
During August’s full moon, start bringing inspiration, a sense of purpose and understanding back into your life!! Because that is what this month is all about. When the sun slides into Virgo on August 22nd-23rd, we all going to enter into a time of where “attention to detail” is the name of the game. It might not be the easiest Indian summer you’ve had, but if we do what we know we NEED to do, and find new resolutions and ways to think and live through these changes, we are setting ourselves up for a powerful Fall time!! You don’t want to lead the horse here, you want to ride it! The signs in the road will be clear, so don’t bother doubting. This is a hunt and the fox is marked in day-glow orange. All we have to do is jump the fences, watch the bends, complete the ride.
Long standing planetary influences for this month:
Uranus in Aries: The urge to start fresh, to break free from restrictive attitudes or circumstances, to totally redesign an area of our lives (or even our personalities), and to gain freedom through independence is strong with Uranus in Aries.
Jupiter in Cancer: Cancer is a water sign. With a Water sign Jupiter, we have a strong belief in a higher power. We are most able to attract luck and rich life experiences through our intuition, imagination, and compassion. Helping those in need boosts our own morale. More specifically with Jupiter in Cancer, we attract the most good fortune when we are sympathetic, charitable, use our powers to save and accumulate, and comfort others. Real estate, child care, mother care, and the food industry can be prosperous avenues. Go with your gut, even it seems a little out there or too much and keep an eye on the big picture. Balance identity issues with learning and expansion.
Saturn in Scorpio: Significant decisions are often made during Saturn’s hard transits to our personal planets. These transits slow life down (or at least, that is how we perceive it) and force us to live our lives in the present. Although Saturn transits can make life feel like a drudgery (these are often times when our lives seem to move at a snail’s pace and advancements are hard to see), they also give us the opportunity to gain inner strength, to become more responsible for what we do and say, and to cut out waste or excesses in our lives. Basically, what happens is a form of paring or slimming down in the area of life affected by Saturn. We are getting rid of things in our lives that are not working for us in the real world, and focusing on improving and strengthening the things that do serve a useful purpose. Take the slow times to fill up, and build up your inner reserves. Be careful of depression, if we were riding high during a high-speed Uranus transit just before Saturn “hit”, this period can mark a significant time in our lives when we “pay” for the risks we may have taken during that Uranus phase. While it may feel like life has just stopped, it really hasn’t, it’s taken on a new form and we need to slow down and adjust to a tighter way of being, where we get ready for new growth.
Last week maybe been a little nuts, and just keeping up a daily balance may have been your main priority, but this week all that emotional turmoil of the last two months (remember all those trines in water signs???) will begin to melt away and we can begin to get down the dirty details of life and work with much more ease. Mars remains in Cancer until next week supports this ability to move forward, just be sure not to get side tracked on too many other facets of your goal and try to stick to the direct path.
The Cards: Take step back a moment and question what you have been saying “no” or “not right now” to. Challenge those thoughts this week. Which of these things are you really able to do? Or where has a situation changed allowing you some progress? It’s time to start clearing up some those would haves and should haves off your plate. DO IT NOW! Free up some of the energy, focus, and emotion around your procrastination or waiting for yourself! Use that full moon energy to help you manifest a cleaner plate to work from and then get out there a tackle a couple of those little hurdles.
Aug 24th: Venus in Libra (until Sept. 10th)
Venus in Libra virtually lives for relationships, yet there is an air of cool detachment to this energy. So while we are not as stressed as we could be when someone disagrees or is being dramatic or needy, we have to watch that we are not allowing others to cross our boundaries for the sake of keeping the peaceful vibes going. We are very obliging with others–quite willing to negotiate and compromise. We can be especially idealistic about our love relationships. We prefer things be done the “right” way, and are turned off by aggressive or uncouth behavior which will pull us out of our peaceful place. The shadow side of this position is dependency, inconsistency, and superficiality. In an attempt to avoid unpleasant situations, we could easily gloss over deeper issues at play in our relationships. It’s probably best to avoid the trap of acquiescing to our partners but privately resenting the fact or thinking ourselves martyrs for doing so! This is also a time when we are more artistically inclined as during this time we can tend to seek balance in our personal environment and our relationships.
Aug 20th Full blue moon in Aquarius :
Because of angle, this Aquarius moon will affect Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius the most with it’s thoughts and dreams of change, revolution, and innovation. The Leo Sun is proud and intensely individual–not content with simply being just one of the team. The Aquarius Moon, while individualistic as well, values independence and the “team”. The Full Moon illuminates this conflict. While the moon may affect some of use more strongly than others, it’s dreamy message this month almost seems at odds with practical Virgo, maybe this will be a great time to focus on the “how” of those dreamy Aquarian messages.
August 21st : A square between Jupiter and Uranus:
This points to a strong need for moving forward. This is a rebellious, restless influence–one in which we should avoid making changes just for the sake of making changes. We might take risks (perhaps foolish ones) for the sake of freedom. We could also too easily avoid taking responsibility for things that truly matter. This is not a good time for financial speculation or travel. However, this is a time during which we can open ourselves up to new ways of thinking. Secondly, a trine between Jupiter and Chiron is exact today, pointing to a time for freeing ourselves of restrictive and negative attitudes or situations that may have been undermining our progress. We might open our minds to different perspectives and philosophies.
Aug. 22nd : Sun Moving out of warm and playful Leo and moving into Virgo.
Our focus shifts to the pieces of the puzzle–the little details of our lives. It is now time to take care of practical concerns. Tending to the details of everyday life may not sound like loads of fun, but it can certainly free us from unnecessary stress that results from “collecting” odds and ends of unfinished business. This is an ideal time to get organized, to do detail work, and to improve communications on the job
August 23rd: Mercury shifts from the bigger picture Leo into Virgo:
When Mercury is in Virgo, precision in speech, thought, and process is now important to us. This is a time when we analyze and decide what is useful and what we deem to be impractical. Mercury feels right at home in Virgo, one of the signs that it rules. Dealing with details is natural and easy now. We need to be careful that we don’t lose perspective if we find ourselves lost in details. We should also be aware of the possibility of expressing ourselves in a too factual manner, so much so that we come across as dry, critical, or unimaginative.
August 24th; Venus Squares Pluto:
Pluto events are key to understanding which area of life will enact the most dramatic transformation. Venus effects how you find beauty in life, and share it with others. However, squares force us out of complacency and get the ball rolling. A challenge to your thinking might occur today as to where you draw your soul nourishment and how you keep yourself feeling fulfilled. Don’t overlook your communications!! Don’t take them for granted. In fact it might be time to write an old friend or relative!
August 26th-Spet 1st
This week starts off strong, continuing from the focus of last week, but at some point we are met with obstacles that leave us wondering if there is a different way of doing things. Seek those different things this week!
The Cards: Wow, what an amazing message for this week! Because Virgo counts self work and development as part of her domain where details really do count, instead of spirally into exterior chaos when we roadblocks this week, we start feeling inner nudging. This is not a time to start trying to push your way through things or bully the universe into complying. We Must surrender to the moment, surrender where we thought we were going, and start to feel out where we are supposed to be. Take the time this week to really stop and look at our priorities and fix them up. Focusing on what we really want and the steps to get there will wash away a lot of the pressure we were under. But because this is Virgo the virgin ruling this month, this could be a nudge to simply review our plans, priorities, and goals, because there are forthcoming opportunities we should be preparing and clearing some space in our lives for. Is your life really going the way you want it to? Are you where to need to be right now?
August 27th: Mars in cancer:
We pursue our interests ardently, but we avoid a direct approach to going after we want. As well, our goals and plans are subject to mood swings and vacillations. We are defensive rather than overtly aggressive. Much of what we do depends on our mood of the moment.
August 28th Mercury Trines Pluto
Today is the perfect day for expressing and communicating our needs for those changes that we feel we need make. Last week was a week for planning, but today is day to state your intent and your needs!! This is also supported by a Mercury sextile with the North node, so stay in your center today, and set your course for your true north!
August 30th Sun sextile Saturn and Mercury sextile Jupiter:
Today is not a day for frivolous pursuits. Today is a day when you will need to take all the power and energy you have a let it show. Saturn and Jupiter both calls for wisdom and maturity, but perhaps not your typical response to things. But open to new resolutions, new ideas about how things can work out.
Sept. 1st: Sun trine Pluto
After this week, you be asking what do I left to question about my life? Maybe message is about a new way to see yourself, a new vision of yourself and what you are capable of. What have you been trying to deny about yourself?
Sept. 2nd- 8th
This looks like a fairly easy week as long we keep our new perspectives. There are a few minor aspects seeking to challenge us, but they are not nearly as important as we might think they are in the moment.
The Cards: This week is a test to those thoughts of a new you or following your true path that you explored last week. There maybe some small obstacle you need to hurdle, but the challenge this week is to see how well you can handle yourself while using your new thinking. This is a week of taking the high road. If you have issues with boundaries, they will be tested, and you need to stay in yourself and keep others out of your space. If you have problems with anger, you need to hold that clear thinking from last week firmly in the forefront of your mind, and really ask yourself what you want to the conclusion to the situation to be, a screaming match, a passive aggressive snipe-fest, or honest communication and fulfillment? Stay vigilant thought, the tricksters will be about!! Pay attention to details, what you say, what you do, and even the same in others, so you don’t get caught in old patterns and webs.
Sept 3rd: Sun opposes Chiron:
Let the low feeling you have been having be lifted by the bright day. Today you might feel called to go out and enjoy the sun and life outside of you today! Fill yourself with the light around you, so the dark cannot rule and fester!
Sept 5th : New moon in Aquarius:This day and time might be good reflect on some of the obstacles from last week, and consider those changes and resolutions you might have been asked to think about. What can you let go of to make that happen? Are you ready to embrace it yet?
Sept. 7th: Pluto sextile North Node:
There might be a conflict or obstacle today, but this is not something to worry about. Instead it is a pointer, a message about where we are next called to develop. After the last two months of water and trines and external change, you might be wondering what is next left to change or challenge you? On this day seek that knowledge so you can start this new lesson before it nips you in the butt!
This week is a good time to start something new you have been planning. Just adjust your plans so they are practical and realistic and don’t push yourself to get everything done at once!
The planets are going have us all stirred up and at times, maybe a bit high feeling. But that’s not going to make time go by any faster! The cards advise for this week to take time and care about getting things done the right way. Which might actually take a little personal attention and meditation to get the intent and plans just right. Ground yourself out, fill yourself up with Earthy energy, and tackle the changes in front of you. This is also not a time to hold on to those wonderful energies, always ask them to come back, always remember what your life feels like when you are running that kind of high, but know when it’s time that you and those energies need to part way, and bid them blessings until you meet again. Too much of a good thing can shut you down, just as much as too much negative stuff! Don’t forget to reach out to other you know who might need a little boost or share in others good turns and keep the energy going that way!
Sept. 9th: Mars squares Saturn:
Today we can be excited to out and get things done for all the plans we made and thought about. Don’t get frustrated if we run into obstacles or ill timing. Saturn asks us to remember that most things have a time and place, so cool your Mars fueled jets a little and make sure what you need to get done gets done well, and not necessarily the quickest way.
Sept 11th Venus moves into mysterious Scorpio and Mars squares North Node:
This brings about a new change, that perhaps we haven’t had in a while. This is a time when our intuitions and our knowing of true path will seem to converge. If we are off in one of these things, we will begin to see where we need to correct, and if have been right all along we feel ultimately validated by all the good energies around us. It might even seem that this past month was kind of leading up to this!
Sept. 14th: Mars quincunx Chiron:
Don’t let your sense of life direction get diverted. Remember this a week of low and slow progress. don’t question the slow coming results, and reward each baby step!
This is a week of being in touch with the inner you, knowing your path and your purpose and being able to think about making some changes in order to support that part of your life.
This is going to a very special week. It’s can be the week you have been waiting for, on many levels. This is one of those weeks that could very well be life changing, if you have the motivation and drive, the energies for transformation will be in place finally. All those watery trine were helping to clear away old and used things for a week such as this. Let your soul shine this week and follow where your dreams take you. Let your passion light a fire in your soul and heart that will warm and inspire this fall.
Sept 16: While you might feel high from all the wonderful energy and being close to knowing and feeling you are on the right path, the words and means to express some of the more esoteric thoughts and ideas might not be finding their way out. If its coming on in dribs and drabs, start writing it out or leaving yourself a voice message, because the day of the full moon this week can really give you boost you need to start living the life you want to live.
Sept. 19th full moon and Mercury Square Jupiter
Today is the day when everything seems to come together. All the changes and ideas you have been thinking about, the wishes, wants and desires for something better or different. Today is the day to let it all out. Use the perspective of the big picture that may come easily today to really tap into how to do some that moving and shaking. I have a feeling the effects of this full moon will linger a little, so don’t worry so much about some highs and lows, as things work themselves out. Take the steps you need, as you can, but don’t procrastinate! Use this wonderful expressive energy while we have it, because there a few challenges coming ahead and you might a good solid plan based on intuition and heart to get through it.
Sept. 20th: Scorpio trine Chiron
This connection suggests you can use this focus to confront your doubts/insecurities/weaknesses (look at your natal chart and see what Pisces has to say) and deal with them. There will be work involved and discipline and digging a bit deeper than you’re comfortable. Or maybe events are forcing you to endure a supremely uncomfortable situation . This is a band aid issue, do it quick, do it fast, but it get off so there aren’t problems later!
Sept. 21st: Saturn is now in mutual reception with Pluto:
Saturn harmonizes with Pluto and the Saturn in Scorpio-Pluto in Capricorn connection can also help us to more clearly understand the long-term benefits of denying certain excessive behaviors in the present. This can help us to conquer some of our addictions, and also problems with over spending and gambling. Remember this is all setting up so we can make those changes and create that healing that we all need on one level or another!
Sept. 22rd Sun leaves practical Virgo and enters liberal Libra:
When the Sun enters Libra, it marks the Autumn Equinox in the turning of the wheel of the seasons. The beginning of each season is marked by the entry of the Sun into one of the cardinal signs, the astrological signs that initiate action. The cardinal signs are Libra, Aries, Cancer and Capricorn. Libra is the sign of balance -under the influence of Libra we seek harmony between aspects of life that are dissonant. At the sign of Libra we have just crossed the midway point of the zodiac, and at the season of Autumn we have crossed the midway point of the wheel of the year which begins in the spring with Aries. The Full Moon that occurs nearest to the Autumn Equinox is known as the Harvest Moon because at the Equinox the last of the crops are brought in from the fields. There is a sense of closing down the earth in preparation for winter and finding that balance between the indoors and the outdoors the interior of our lives and the exterior world. But before that happens, it is the season of fairs, festival, carnivals, get-togethers, and revels, just remember to follow the urge to keep it all balance and that a ton of hot dogs mixed with roller coaster isn’t’ always the best thing!! It’s time to balance all Virgo driven work and practicality we have been up to our ears in and get there to enjoy the daylight while it lasts!
Let this fall enchant and help open you up to new ideas about your life!
