ASTROLOGY NEWSLETTER SEPTEMBER 15-OCTOBER 1, 2023
If you’ve been suffering in any way the last few weeks don’t despair. This past Mercury retrograde brought the old wound, the chronic problem, the eight of swords, the thing that doesn’t change, the secret about yourself that you’ve danced around.
Mercury went retrograde in Virgo on August 23, going direct September 15 at 1:20 PM PST. If something in your life seemed stuck, not making progress, the blockage is about to open.
The part that needs the most healing whether it’s heart, body or mind has been put through the ringer. And you’re feeling rung out.
Tired, dispirited, disillusioned, it’s been a rough retrograde. The part of your life that needs to be restored needs attention. You cannot go on in the same way with the same people.
Virgo gets a bad rap. It’s not glamorous like Leo, elegant like Libra nor impassioned like Scorpio. But wait, Virgo is the earth, modesty, recuperation, work ethic, health, psychotherapy and purity. How can Virgo be so overlooked? And ignored?
This past month Mercury was retrograde in Virgo. It brought out what needs the most attention with what you’ve ignored. Where you suffered, where you felt most afflicted, where you need more health is Virgo’s diagnosis, now.
When a planet is retrograde, the areas where things are not working or malfunctioning is clearer. If it’s the relationship, the house, the car, your digestion, your emotional center, your romance, your inner life, or your career, chances are the progress you thought you made is not holding up so well. This retrograde brought you the opportunity to stop criticizing and get into a different relationship with what got left behind.
When you’re obsessive, compulsive, panicky, fearful, angry, volatile, passive, you get to see it in living color.
If you’re consumed by your mind, the mind went a little wobbly. If you’re obsessed by money, your supply dries up. If it’s love you’re after, your heart gets blown into a thousand humpty -dumpty pieces that can’t be put together the same way.
All the guilds and entertainment world is not working so well. The government is not so functional, the evacuation systems in under siege places didn’t kick in. There needs to be correction. And Virgo is supreme at correcting.
The New Moon on September 14 in Virgo unlocks the period of darkness you were lost in the prior days.
Let the light that the New Moon brings in with insight to help you find your way out of the cave.
If you’ve been suffering with a loss, fear, panic or pain the next five-ten days helps to find relief from what seems like an overly long jail sentence.
The Full Moon in Aries on September 29 brings the negotiation of global arms to Russia. Things get stepped up. Mars in Libra means war. And Chiron (the healing crisis) in Aries sets up the October Eclipse. An international mess is coming.
Suffering from war, fire, heat and rage. Nothing is easy now. And not that much is so enjoyable.
These are hard times because of:
Pluto is in its’ end game in Capricorn.
Many traditional businesses and ways of making and holding
money are not working.
Perhaps the entertainment business is in one of those end
Maybe Taylor Swift is a prophetess of a new way for film and
What seemed set in stone is crumbling as more religions and
false leaders try to take advantage.
There will be water where there’s desert and desert where
The right ways that were so right before are detiorating.
It’s not the end of the world; but it’s the end of something.
Make your peace with what is shaky by staying strong with family, love and belief.
Give yourself a talking to everyday about the long run.
Take solace in your practice whether it’s meditation, yoga or strength training to remind you that help comes from what you’ve cultivated.
This end leads to a new beginning. Take heart, it’s moving and we’ll be moved towards a higher vibration.
ASTROLOGY FOR INDIVIDUAL SUN AND RISING SIGNS:
ARIES has it hard now. Too many things are falling through. The New Moon points up reverses in work and health that are the result of impulsive decisions. You’re fighting what wants to change yet you hang onto your agitated self.
Aries thinks it’s off to the races but it turns out to be the same circle you’re going around in.
Remedy for Aries: to analyze the problem and not bang your head against the wall. Your greatest suffering comes from wanting It so bad that you don’t have time to wait for It to come to you. Make peace with your sense of time… it’s not the thing to rebel against now. Be strong by listening to the inner wisdom.
TAURUS has it good now with Jupiter. Fat and happy. You’re leading the good life, yet you keep looking around corners for the Monster. Don’t spend your time on the worst thing that can happen. The New Moon wants a new love routine and brand new bag. Allow for human error and be forgiving with those that are stuck.
Remedy for Taurus: reframe the neo plasticity of your mind and dwell on goodness, peace, love and happiness. Your ship is coming in, don’t miss the cue. Love can bend around a rock. Be the earth and the light and the seed. The rock will assist and not block you when you come from love.
GEMINI has the energy to fight for what you want. Obstacles come under the New Moon from family and the home. Saturn is keeping it all real. Needing a whole new diagram of your inner or outer space has caught you off guard. Don’t be a pushover for illusion.
Remedy for Gemini : even though your mind goes fast, slow down especially with artisans and those who help you in the home. Be patient with others who are lost. Speak about your loyalty to the afflicted. Assure them that you have their back and will be there for them if they need you. Touch their hand and change the vibration from fear to love.
CANCER had a big loss in the last 14 years. The thing that’s gone could have turned toxic. Wake up to the save and don’t complain. Pluto changing signs brings relief and Saturn puts it all in perspective. Mars sets you up for inner conflict or outer agita. Career and business need better handling.
Remedy for Cancer: to be able to be gracious with what life brings. Stay in your right mind when your not -right mind takes over and misinterprets others’ motives. Go with the flow of goodness in your life and be honest about your mistakes. They help you better understand the process of growth you’re now experiencing.
LEO has a money issue back and forth. First, it’s resolved then it changes. Secrets and hidden information come through after the 15th. Jupiter magnifies the good and bad. Stay in your lane and walk away from provocation.
Remedy for Leo: watch how finance and value reflects darkness within. You cannot count on yourself when the rug gets pulled from under you. Seek to find the stability within your center and go on with your day no matter how many barking dogs are barking.
VIRGO is overwhelmed by responsibility. Astrology makes this birthday one of seeing things for what they are. If what you counted on fell through, other opportunities show up. You normal rational and systemized way of operating is thrown into chaos. Saturn shows what you want to breakup with and what to re-up with. Make a flexible plan for the next fourteen years.
Remedy for Virgo: to be secure in your own perception and not be driven by needing to show how good you are. Make a contribution but do enough, not more. Rest when you’re tired and don’t burn yourself out trying to make everybody happy. You are the healer, the healed and the healing. Participate in the process.
LIBRA is stirred up. Exercise and wrestle with what makes you angry. The back seat that you keep trying to take keeps moving you into the front row. Accept how life positions you. The Solar Eclipse in October sweeps away what needs to go. You can definitely benefit from what’s left after information that was hidden emerges.
Remedy for Libra: to enjoy what is beautiful in your life and be grateful for the gift. Hidden fears and phobias come; don’t be led astray by keeping secrets. The time you spend alone is sacred so thank the gods. Stay close to yourself over the next month and prepare for your birthday.
SCORPIO has a hard time with health or family. If something is broken try to repair it and then let it go. This is the hardest run for Scorpios; Pluto leaving a sign is like a metaphorical death. All that you are familiar with is suddenly undependable. Be the phoenix and rise above the ashes.
Taxes and assets bring a surprise.
Remedy for Scorpio: to be able to consider that the end is foreshadowed by the beginning. Make a good beginning so there can be a good ending. You’re about to experience a new worldview. Paradigm shifts change the whole experience. Be patient with what and whom you resist.
SAGITTARIUS needs to make a correction with what you started about 14-21 years ago.
This last Mercury retrograde helped you see what’s not working. Philosophy and travel keep returning. Don’t escape yourself by throwing yourself into another’s problem. Money or how you value self is transitioning. Fighting with friends is not so much fun or that stimulating.
Remedy for Sagittarius: to be kind to those who think they fooled you. To be fluid with what life brought. To allow your projects to find their way through intuition. To be able to hear the voice within that does nor scream but speaks silently.
CAPRICORN has Pluto enacting a summary of the last fourteen/ fifteen years. What is going away is a way of life that is no longer. Identities that were iron clad are crumbling. Rules and regulations are not working and it seems like everything is up for grabs. Harshness freezes out what little warmth you feel. This ending of a part of your life is cyclic.
Remedy for Capricorn: to go back to your foundation if your world is shaken. Love is more than romance yet you need to feel that truth in your heart. Hold out for the things that you believe in and don’t doubt your existence when you feel you’ve fallen down. Swim in a new lake that welcomes you. Don’t put money at the top of your worries.
AQUARIUS feels like they’ve been sucker punched. If something didn’t turn out the way you planned go beyond the blockage. The obstacles you’ve faced are minor even though they might be insulting. Health and well- being extract a price. Pay the piper and go on to the next thing.
Remedy for Aquarius: to believe in a higher power when you experience your gift and brilliance. Approach life from a humble perspective. Allow your silent pride to transcend itself by deepening the concept of service. Rewards come quietly.
PISCES is having a career/relationship reset. If you’re experiencing a correction that touches on something you didn’t see coming, know that this period brings endings and challenges. The strength you have is temporarily blocked. Develop new strengths by going deeper and working with your fears.
Remedy for Pisces: to let partners help you out of the mess you’ve been thrown into.
To align with others based on strength not power. To find out where you are vulnerable and not throw someone away based on theirs’ or your neediness. Don’t blame yourself for underestimating someone’s capacity.
