September 1st Last Quarter Moon
This is a time of reassessment, looking back over the cycle of the last three weeks and summing up the wisdom contained therein, stemming from the successes and especially from the failures of our enterprises. Together with the Mercury retrograde still in full swing this configuration brings a certain rueful energy to the very first day of the month.
September 8th New Moon
This positive New Moon energy in Virgo contrasts with the tentative nature of the Mercury retrograde period. Venus also enters Scorpio this day, where it will soon be joined by Mars. Relationship action heats up and gets deeper.
September 14th First Quarter Moon
This is traditionally a time of relative tension in our process, wherein we recognize the potential drawbacks of the course we undertook from the time of the recent New Moon. Mercury, now direct, is making up its lost Zodiacal ground over the next two weeks. Eris is Aries is activated, bringing out the warrior impulse in all of us.
September 23rd Full Moon
This Full Moon coincides with the Fall Equinox that precedes it by a few hours. This is an especially powerful Full Moon, in the first degree of Aries and Libra, since it triggers the Uranus-Pluto-Saturn T-square for one last time before the spring. These power planets remind us that we are in transition as individuals and as a culture as well, and the wheel is still in spin. Where we will emerge is anybody's guess, and is up to the very necessary advances in consciousness of each one of us. But it isn't going to be anything at all like Kansas anymore.
