During the first month of autumn, no less than twenty powerful astral aspects are expected to form. In preparing a summary for this month’s general description, I discovered that they tend to fall into five very important categories. What follows is an interpretation of these classifications and other cosmic configurations that stand out from these patterns.
On September 1, two harmonious trine aspects are perfected between Mercury in Virgo and Uranus retrograde in Taurus and Venus inVirgo and Saturn retrograde in Capricorn. Given the energy of the signs that allow for the creation of these configurations, we can deduce that, from the very first day of September, we are called to duty. We certainly have a very busy agenda, and the faster we get to work, the faster the desired results appear.
On September 2 and 12, Venus and Mars in Virgo launch tense aspects to Jupiter, which is transiting the sign of the Sagittarius. On or around these days, they reveal some discrepancies between how we perceive situations and how we approach them. Such desynchronization scan have a detrimental effect on the activities we undertake at the beginning of the first and second decades of the month. It is therefore advisable to attain some sort of the balance between vision and strategy.
On September 3 and 13, Mercury joins Mars and Venus in the sign of Virgo, which indicates that we have a critical attitude at work and toward others. As a result, we try to do our job as best as we can. We schedule our activities carefully, we prepare for any possible scenario, we do not leave things to chance and we expect others to reciprocate. That, however, may not always happen.
On September 4, 7 and 14, Venus, Mercury and Mars in Virgo send oppositions to Neptune retrograde in Pisces, which is indicative of too much willingness to compromise. To some reasonable extent, that is the foundation of any human relationship, but when they involve far too many sacrifices, they risk creating ruptures, frustrations and dissatisfactions that we may not be able to mend effectively in the future. It is therefore advisable to draw some very clear limits.
During September 6, Mercury in Virgo and Jupiter in Sagittarius form a tense square aspect, while Venus in Virgo sends a harmonious trine to Pluto retrograde in Capricorn. They indicate a similar dissimilarity between vision and strategy, most likely due to the lack of a clear perspective of the situations we are facing. At the same time, they may have a beneficial effect, in that they encourage caution.
On September 5, 8, 9 and 19, Mercury and Mars in Virgo form harmonious trine aspects with Saturn and Pluto retrograde in Capricorn, indicating that during or around these dates, contexts are created that allow us to solve some problems that have been around for a long time. It is true that these involve some changes we may be uncomfortable with, but at the same time, we are more ambitious than ever to bring them to a halt.
From September 14 onward, Mercury and Venus begin transiting the sign Libra, the latter’s diurnal domicile. Against the background of their stay in this sign, we are more open to others and are more adept at using social tools such as diplomacy, tact and the ability to resonate with others. It should be mentioned, however, that we might also be more indecisive and oscillate more when faced with two alternatives.
September 17 marks the end of Saturn’s retrograde transit through its nocturnal domicile, that is, the sign of Capricorn. This causes those limitations, delays and obstacles that we have been facing for several months to gradually disappear, which gives us the opportunity to observe progress regarding those issues that seemed to have plateaued lately. Here’s an opportunity to regain out hope and march forward with enthusiasm.
On or around September 21, Jupiter in Sagittarius sends a tense square aspect to Neptune retrograde in Pisces, which is why the beginning of the last decade of the month may surprise us with many questions about the purpose of certain tests the stars have subjected us lately. Their difficulty may prompt us to doubt the divine plan, which seems to be unresponsive to our desires and efforts. Let us not forget, however, that we are not given more than we can take.
On September 22, 25 and 26, Mercury and Venus in Libra send tense square aspects to Saturn and Pluto retrograde in Capricorn, which indicates some situations are too tense for things to be resolved through diplomacy and tact. This may led to unexpected epiphanies regarding the current state of some of our professional and/ or personal relationships. They may, however, prove helpful in the long run.
As is evident from the paragraphs above, the first moth of autumn is rather unforgiving, in that it leave no room for hesitation. Judging from its aspects, there is a lot to be done on several levels, and we must apply a lot of perseverance, patience and tactfulness in whatever we set out to achieve.
