September is a dynamic month with the arrival of the must discussed Mars Retrograde on September 10th AEST. Before this we have a beautiful Full Moon in Pisces opening the month on the 2nd of September at 3:23pm AEST which forms a gentle sextile to the planet of surprise and innovation Uranus from the sign of Taurus. Uranus in aspect to this Full Moon offers the delivery of some form of surprise or change in emotion allowing more independence or emotional freedom and liberation. This will under lay the Moon’s tone and cycle as it wanes down to the New Moon in Virgo later in the month. This Full Moon in Pisces gives good distraction to the Cardinal Crush which sees the following planets in difficult or challenging relationship to each other Mars in Aries, Venus in Cancer and Saturn & Pluto in Capricorn on September 2nd.
Later on in September, the New Moon in Virgo, occurs on Thursday 17th of September at 8:58pm AEST and forms an exact trine aspect to Saturn in Capricorn. Saturn’s influence at this New Moon, is offering a foundation and stern support at the foundation level of this New Moon cycle. Saturn can be cold and stern and unwelcoming at times, but it also creates longevity and great success if worked with and given the gifts of consistency, application and commitment. Like wise any simplifications and downsizing at this New Moon would have strong support from Saturn, who likes to strip things back and to invest time and effort in simplicity. This in turn helps with longevity of the things you are trying to re-set or set at this time.
Below is a breakdown of where these energies are occurring in your chart in large brush strokes.
