Molly's Astrology for September 2013
I love it when a plan comes together.
September marks the final stage of the 3-part “Virtuous Circle” process (see January). The opportunity to change our fortunes began to show itself in December 2012. We took the work to a deeper level this January-March. This month’s third and final contact between Saturn and Pluto brings the Virtuous Circle’s result, perhaps a natural conclusion to our efforts to become wiser and more mature, and to take on greater responsibility in all areas of life – professional, personal, and emotional.
Detox is more difficult now, so chemicals and processed foods are more harmful than normal. Avoid toxins, and take in more nourishment, especially for your hormones, reproductive system, and bowels.
Great physical and emotional healing is possible when we let go of worn out objects and attitudes. There is a “stuckness” in the body and in the world as we struggle with issues of shared power, interdependence, and vulnerability. These things can’t work themselves out overnight. It may need to “cocoon” for a while. When shifts take place, give the new idea some time and space to really integrate. Insights you meet with now appear simple but still have a profound impact.
Older folks who come into your life now may be karmic buddies with valuable wisdom to offer. If you’re an older person, you may be the buddy.
Day by Day
September 5, the New Moon in Virgo signals a generally upbeat vibe around the home and workplace that supports your efforts to tweak existing routines to be smoother and more efficient. September 7-8, even though the big picture is positive, the vibe turns cranky for a few days. Working with others is often challenging. Cultivate patience and, if you’re able, put off your most important calls until next week.
Starting September 11, we are gradually moving into a time of year when we connect on a level so deep, it hits our survival buttons and brings up our deepest emotions. Some of us need a little “me” time to sort out darker emotions like jealousy, fear, and anger. Don’t freak out if your loved one wants space. The energy of this month supports us in processing the garbage, turning crap into compost. To benefit the most, we have to go into the darkness.
September 15-18, the Virtuous Circle is in full effect. Join forces or pool resources with others for mutual benefit. You can make important connections, especially with people who are older or more established. Patient, disciplined, slow and steady wins the race.
The Full Moon on September 19 carries a touch of confusion. Our communications enter a sort of “echo chamber” colored by emotional reactions. Messages are exaggerated and the rumor mill is running wild. Be prudent with your mouth and your wallet. Flower essences and other remedies designed to balance your subtle energies may help you surf the waves of this psychically charged Pisces Full Moon. Don’t get caught up in the emotional turbulence, or you might miss the opportunity to take advantage of the transcendent and therapeutic energy available from now through the first week of October. Love is in the air September 25-26. The atmosphere is expansive, generous, and affectionate, but also a little fickle, turning cranky for a little while on September 27. The rest of the month is clear and good for work, play, and healing.
