Welcome to September! It's been quite the ride in 2016 and September is bringing a culmination of many of these energies. September, being the month of the fall solar and lunar eclipses, holds endings and beginnings within its mutable Virgo energy. This month will also bring with it the final Saturn-Neptune square, Mars into Capricorn, Jupiter into Libra and Pluto direct. All of this is happening with Mercury retrograde in Virgo in the background.
Mercury goes retrograde several times a year so IS a common occurrence but may be felt more intensely in Virgo. It always puts a focus on our communications and asks us to slow down and review how we are communicating, and so beneath that, how we are thinking. I have already been experiencing it personally. Correspondence not arriving in the mail when it should have, check. Broken internet connection, check. Google Chrome tabs malfunctioning, check. Getting locked out of my own online accounts, check. Routine communications seeming to take several extra steps, more time, and infinitely more patience, checkity-check-CHECK. But everything happens for a reason and Mercury retrograde is no exception. We obviously need extra chances at checking ourselves in the thought and communication department each year.
Without getting into the meaning and complexities of all of the astrological events themselves, here are some tips for making the most of the energies of September in general.
So to keep it simple for September, it's clearing out the old and wrapping up old cycles to make room for the new to take shape, with a focus on tending to the mundane details, being responsible, and being mindful of our thinking and communication, while we keep our vision fixed on our desired destination.
And whatever energies are affecting you are always affecting everyone else, to one degree or another, however consciously or unconsciously, and manifesting in different ways, so patience, kindness and understanding are always good to remember.
