You are in the world but not of it these days, Aquarius, deciding that your own inner universe has more to offer. Dreams and waking visions are a significant source of information as you ponder interior intentions and realities. Your learning curve this month is huge, although the implicit journey involved takes you far outside traditional channels. A mystical understanding arising from the very depths of your psyche might be able to lead you into a new stage of your development, past doubt and motivational confusion, and beyond any remaining vestiges of inner wounding left over from undigested early childhood trauma. Transformation is the name of your game, but it must come from your own values and bottom-line considerations of what is absolutely real for you and you alone, independent of the concerns and attitudes of others. By month’s end you will emerge onto an entirely new plateau as you continue your developmental climb up the mountain of your evolving worldview.
The following was written by our resident monthly columnist Adam Elenbaas of The Nightlight Astrology School
The month begins just as Mercury in Virgo in your eighth house of death, penalties, and other people’s resources, is making a trine to Uranus in Taurus in your fourth house of home, family, and foundations (September 1st). At the same time, Mars will be at the heart of the Sun in the sign of Virgo (cazimi September 2nd). Your eighth house is in fact emphasized nearly all month, because the New Moon in Virgo from just before September began was a powerful one, taking place in this house. You might be facing a series of changes or challenges right now both in relation to finances and marriage, or perhaps in relation to home, property, parents or family. At the same time, you could be receiving some level of support, empowerment, or encouragement from others, or perhaps you might see a loved one receiving a promotion or doing some personal growth work or healing.
Between September 2nd and the 4th, Venus in Virgo in your eighth house will then oppose Neptune in Pisces in your second house of resources and finances, where eventually the Full Moon will also land on the 14th. You might be feeling a longing right now for financial freedom or independence, or you might be looking for ways to fund a dream or to create a better financial situation for yourself. At the same time, you may be stifled by debts or bills, emotional or financial, from your past, or you might be dealing with the mundane needs or desires of those you are close with, potentially interfering with your own aspirations or wishes. Walking through these tensions will require that you stay patient and discerning.
Between September 8th and the 12th, the Sun and Mars in Virgo will then square Jupiter in Sagittarius in your eleventh house of friends and allies, pointing to the potential for mutually encouraging, inspiring, and productive partnerships or collaborations. The only thing to be careful of here is opportunism. Even in a “I scratch your back if you scratch mine” scenario, gross compromises of our integrity will lead to future complications.
Between September 13th to the 14th, Mercury and Venus will conjoin in Virgo and then move into Libra together, into your ninth house of higher education, faith, and long journeys. Watch for communication to be smooth, harmonious, and compromising during this time. This should be a good time to reach agreements or to find smooth and easy ways of solving problems. You may also find teachers or classes that are appealing to you, or you may find that you are writing, teaching, or expressing your knowledge and wisdom through an artistic medium of some kind.
On The late evening of September 13th, the Full Moon in Pisces will fall in your second house of resources and values, including your financial resources, in a close conjunction there with Neptune. Finances might be a bit up in the air or confused for you at this mid-month juncture, or take on a spiritual dimension of some kind. Mars is also quite closely opposed to Neptune, so that motivations may become obscure or indeterminate. This Full Moon also highlights issues of self and other, and of seeking the deeper meaning.
Between September 21st and 22nd, Jupiter in Sagittarius in your eleventh house of friends, groups, and allies will then square Neptune in Pisces in your second house of money and resources. For much of the past year, you’ve been benefiting from expansive, wise, or fortunate social and professional friends or groups of people. Or, perhaps, you’ve been finding new ways of offering your gifts and skills to a larger group of people, or even collaborating with others on a business project. Whatever the case might be, as Jupiter makes its final square to Neptune, the lessons of the past year are synthesizing, and you are likely being offered a new vision, hope, or faith of what is possible and moving forward with renewed optimism.
On September 23rd, the Sun will pass through the gateway of the Fall Equinox, moving into Libra and into your ninth house of higher mind, faith, and long journeys. At the same time, between the 25th and 26th, Venus and Mercury in Libra will pass through squares to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn in your twelfth house of self-undoing and dissolution. This indicates a thoughtful period of attempting to come to a better understanding of what is going on for you beneath the surface layers of your personality.
Finally, the Libra New Moon will fall in your ninth house on September 28th. This entire sequence points to the desire for higher knowledge, truth, and understanding or learning that you will be feeling not only for this final weekend, but for the next month to come. This period may also inspire you to travel abroad, or it may be that whatever you are learning is forcing you to retreat from the world or causing you to question or become disillusioned with the status quo. Watch for this learning process to also unfold and deepen, especially within your close friendships or relationships in thirty days of the lunar cycle to come, lasting most of October!
