Angelic Astrology – September 2016
The numerological vibration for the month of September is 18/9. This is significant, especially for 2016, as we are in a 9 Universal Year energy and now we will be in a 9 Universal Month energy.
The 9 vibration is about the ending of a cycle. It is a time of purging and letting go of the old, in preparation for the new! It is a time to “go with the flow” and have faith and trust in the Divine Plan, as circumstances are unfolding before us without a sense of being able to control them. In this month of September, a 9 month in a 9 year, we are surely in an important time as situations in our lives and the world around us come to some sort of completion.
The 18th Major Arcana in the tarot is the Moon. This card is ruled by Pisces, the sign that rules the spiritual realm and all things elusive. It reflects the “dark night of the soul” energy where we tap into our subconscious fears with the intent to see them for the illusions that they are, and allow them to dissolve into the ethers. As we do this we come out of the shadows to be
illumined by the Light.
With this energy we are caught between reality and illusion…..what is real and what is imaginary….what is the truth and what is the fantasy that we are led to believe. We also become much more psychically sensitive to unseen energies and other people’s emotions and projections, so it is imperative that we create good boundaries for ourselves as we move through this time period.
In the book “Essence of the Tarot” by Megan Skinner, she defines the Moon card as “a soul in search of rebirth.” Since this is the Universal Energy for all, we can think of this as all of humanity searching for a rebirth into the Light of a Higher Consciousness, and a Higher Way of Being….a rebirth into the Truth of who we really are….healing and releasing the shadows of the ego mind which are an illusion based on our feelings of being disconnected from God Source Energies…..which IS just an illusion for we are always and forever a part of the One!
We begin the month, astrologically, with a New Moon Solar Eclipse at 9 degrees of Virgo. Because this is an eclipse lunation it is more intense than our usual New Moon. Both the Sun and Moon are in a challenging relationship with a square to Saturn and Mars in Sagittarius, and an opposition to Neptune in Pisces, forming what is called a T-Square. The North Node (the future) in Virgo and the South Node (the past) in Pisces are also a part of this astrological configuration.
New Moons are about new beginnings but this one has both a karmic, and an elusive feeling to it. The opposition to Neptune is telling us that what we may think, or see as the next step, is not our reality at all. Saturn brings in the challenge of lessons from the past, and Mars brings an activation of a new direction. The Nodes show that this is a very important turning point in our soul’s evolution and growth on our Path….for us as individuals, and for humanity and the planet on a collective level.
On September 9th the planet Jupiter, which rules growth, the expansion principle, and our belief systems, moves out of Virgo and into the sign of Libra. It will be here until October 2017 expanding our perceptions about relationships, equality, and justice. I believe that this will be an easier placement for Jupiter, the Planet of Blessings, than when it was in detail oriented Virgo. In Libra it allows us to grow through our relationships with others, and to expand the concept of working with others to create equality and justice for all.
Saturn and Neptune form their 3rd, and last, exact square on September 10th. The first square was on November 26th, 2015 and the second was on June 18th, 2016. Of course, they have been within orb of each other since May 2016, and will continue to do so before they start to separate the 2nd half of October. Saturn rules our 3rd dimensional reality, restrictions, and karmic lessons, while Neptune rules the spiritual realm, unconditional love, and Oneness with All That Is. These squares have been a difficult energy bringing up the concept of reality vs. illusion…..what is real and what is fantasy…..the laws of man vs. the Laws of the Universe. The challenges we have felt will start to dissipate soon, and the lessons we have learned along the way will assist us in moving forward in a more functional, yet loving, way with our brothers and sisters of humanity.
On September 22nd Mercury finishes his retrograde cycle and turns back to direct motion at 14-15 degrees of Virgo. He initially went retrograde on August 30th at the 29th degree (a critical degree) of Virgo, giving us time to take care of details, review options, analyze our circumstances, and discern what the next best steps are for us to move forward. Now that he will be moving in direct motion again, we can make appropriate decisions based on what has happened over the past 3-4 weeks. On the same day the Sun moves out of Virgo and joins Jupiter in Libra, sign of the Scales. The focus is on rebalancing our lives and attending to relationship matters.
Speaking of relationships, Venus, the planet of love and partnerships, moves into Scorpio on September 23rd. This will turn the attention towards passion, sexuality, and deeper commitment. Venus also rules money and finances and since Scorpio rules other people’s resources, we may find that there is also a focus on financial situations as well.
Powerful Pluto, planet that rules transformation and big changes, is turning to direct motion on September 26th. We will feel this more intensely a few days before and after this date as Pluto brings in a “death and rebirth” energy to situations and circumstances in our lives, and on the planet as a whole. It will be in a trine aspect to the North Node (future Destiny Point) in Virgo, so will be a powerful indicator of which direction humanity will be moving towards in the years to come. The North Node in Virgo is about service to others and hopefully humanity can allow the transformation and regeneration energies of Pluto to bring us to such a place that we can rise from the ashes born anew.
The next day, September 27th, Mars, planet of action, enters Earth sign Capricorn where it will stay until November 8th. Now we will have the dedication and commitment, along with the drive necessary, to accomplish those projects and directions that we wish to focus on.
We end the month with a New Moon at 8 degrees Libra on September 30th. This lunation of new beginnings is conjunct Jupiter, planet of Blessings! We are now spiritually focused on expanding our ideas of what it means to have equality among all people, to work together as a “team” for humanity and the planet, and what true and balanced partnership is all about in our relationships with others.
