September 2014 Astrology
We welcome the month of September, with the Sun traveling in practical, organized Virgo. The Leo lions have had their party and now it’s time to get back to school, work and all those projects we need to accomplish. Virgo is a powerful sign of healing and purification. Ruled by Mercury and presiding over the realms of medicine, physical healing, agriculture, good nutrition, cleanliness of body and spirit, service for humanity and organized labor. This modest and charitable sign is the Zodiac’s biggest critic and is highly attuned to checking all the details. Prone to nervousness and compulsive behaviors, they are at their best when helping someone in need. They strive for perfection and should give themselves and others some understanding when things get messy in our imperfect world. The Sun in Virgo is a great time to focus on eating healthful foods, cleaning our living space, purifying our intentions and applying Feng Shui principles.
Mercury, the planet of communication will be in Libra for most of September, bringing focus to relationships. Conversation with our closest partners is what many people will desire now. However, with Venus moving through Virgo at the same time, we’ll have to put the flowers and poetry on hold. A Virgo Venus means it’s time to purify and cleanse our relationships if they have become ‘sick’. It doesn’t mean all relationships will be put on emotional life support - but it’s definitely time for a tune-up. This may involve sharing an honest critique of our behavior with loved ones. Check your ego at the door and do what Virgo does best - be there to serve and respond in the best way you can.
Monday the 22nd is the official Autumn Equinox, with the Sun entering Libra at 10:29pm EST. On the same day, Pluto will be moving direct after a long retrograde. Our personal power will start to become stronger and psychological growth unfolds. With Pluto in Capricorn, we will likely see more secrets revealed in the world of business, banking and government institutions.
Our Full Moon this month is in magical, dreamy Pisces on Monday the 8th at 9:38pm EST. This is without a doubt, the most mystical and spiritual Full Moon we experience! A great time to indulge your dreams, write your dearest wishes in a journal with prayers and meditations for the best outcomes possible.
