This year so far has been an intensely evolutionary experience. We can trace some of the intensity to March, when Mars the challenger joined the line-up of Saturn the obstructer, Jupiter the expander, and Pluto, planet of evolution. The pandemic became public; and this alignment ended up dominating our collective moment, taking the entire world on a dark stretch of Pluto’s ride through demanding Capricorn.
In September, we have a chance to chew some of the karma that we bit off when we decided to be on Earth in 2020. Cosmic windows open, allowing us to more readily choose how we can participate in this evolutionary experience. With Sun and Mercury in Virgo, sign of vocation, the mediums of choice are service, daily efforts, and work. Sun and Mercury will be making trines to Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, harmonizing their manifestation. Two fantastic lunations bring these trines into relief and make the opportunities more personally accessible.
Not that things will suddenly become easy. Going against his impulse to rush forward, Mars will turn retrograde. This will tend to diminish the impact of our direct actions. This planet of haste also squares Saturn, bringing another unintended pause.
Things may not be easy, but along with its frustration, the Mars retrograde offers a chance to explore our own sacred masculine energies, so that by November 14, when the red planet goes direct, we’ll rise into late fall with a new level of empowerment.
As this month winds down, responsible Saturn and fortunate Jupiter, the two planets most related to success, will be going direct. This will begin a release of the tensions related to the lockdown and make us feel once again like players in the path of our own destiny.
As the month begins, the tensions of late August will have us more than ready for a cosmic break, and that’s what we get in the Full Moon in Pisces of Tuesday, September 1. This Full Moon’s rich aspects favor spiritual and material breakthroughs. These include a grand earth trine, supporting prosperity; an opposition within the trine that forms a kite, giving us perspective to use its promise; a fortunate mystical rectangle (two trines interlaced with two sextiles), and a T-square, fueling courage and priming us to act.
Retrieve your warrior spirit to use this lunation. After all, Moon in Pisces just may tempt us to sail along with our head in the clouds, to break out the bourbon, or to look for the escape hatch. Grand earth trines tend to be complacent, and a prevalence of harmonious transits may make us want to let go and flow with the pleasant current. Give yourself a time out: Uranus the awakener is involved with three of the four above-mentioned configurations, while this Wine Moon is known to heighten intuition and increase spiritual powers.
