September 5th Mercury goes direct
After the three week retrograde cycle, Mercury begins its forward motion. Remember it can take several days before a sense of normalcy returns. We should if possible take the next couple of days to review our options before making life-altering decisions. We can utilize the power of the full moon which will illuminate everything Mercury has stirred up and the Solar Eclipse. Honoring the Earth Religion and celebrating these planetary influences, acknowledging the divine mother goddess who is pregnant with potential at the time of the Full Moon will greatly aid our own forward movement with decisions and awareness.
September 6th/7th Full Moon in Pisces dedicated to the Water Goddesses
The Goddess Sign for Pisces is the Grail, the chalice that contains the waters of collective consciousness. The Grail is a symbol of the quest we humans seek towards immortality and conscious union with the Divine. Pisces is traditionally symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions in the ocean of existence, but tethered at the tails. With the influences of the recent total solar eclipse and the Lion’s Gate infusion of light, our journey requires complete faith for the affect of the eclipse will build over the next six months. Pisces endows knowledge of the alchemical “Below,” the deep reservoir of collective existence and allows us to see the core of our illusions. It will be up to each of us to change the patterns as they reveal themselves. Resistance will be the biggest challenge we face.
Pisces goddesses include mermaids, fish deities and mother-creators from the sea. Sedna is a goddess of the Inuit people of the Arctic north who were once called Eskimo. Sedna is known as the Queen of the Sea and the guardian of all food the Inuit hunt. Call upon Sedna for the infinite supplies of whatever you may need. She has a strong connection to the ocean and seas and can assist one in connecting to the song of the whale to find balance. She assists one in navigating through unknown territories and teaches the human how to stop the fast world and enter the silence. Even if all the directions you have taken in the past have ended in detours, a new pathway opens that will support you in realizing the full expression of the dream you carry inside. Sedna reminds us of balance, honoring both the male and female nature within. Call upon Sedna for infinite supplies of whatever you may need. Opening yourself to receive and willing to give away. The ocean holds a bounty of abundance for all beings. In New Zealand she is Hine-tu-a-manga, meaning “goddess of waters.” She is the guardian of the sea and all its creatures. The whales are her siblings.
Pisces goddesses can help us connect with these strong currents to bring rivers of healing and potential fertility into our lives. Having been in the wild and raw lands of Alaska for the total solar eclipse it is Sedna that calls to my heart for this full moon celebration. For those who are members of our Moon Cycle and Sacred Sabbat Ritual series I have posted a ritual to call upon this mighty Goddess and receive her blessings on this powerful night. Please click here. I will be posting a guided meditation to work with her beautiful water energies in the next week when I return from Alaska. For those who would like to work more closely with the energies of Sedna, I have created a beautiful oil that contains both the essences of the plant beings from the lands of Alaska but also the Song of the Whales.

September 21st/22nd Equinox
The time of the Equinox provides us with a time “Between the worlds” a window through which we can perform special magick as we honor the turning of the wheel and the unseen world. This is one of two days when the earth will experience equal portions of light and dark. A Powerful night to bring into balance inspiration with action, the merging of the heart and the mind. The balance of our male and female essence. If you are living in the Northern Hemisphere you are preparing for the The Autumn Equinox, also known, as Mabon, the balance between light and dark. As we give thanks for the abundance that the long days and strong power of summer have given, we also take this moment to balance, to rest, to simply be, preparing ourselves for the approaching winter season. It is a time of giving thanks and reflection on what has passed as we look ahead to the brightness of the future. If you are living in the Southern Hemisphere this is a time to awaken the sun and all that you are giving birth to. In the Celtic lands Ostara was celebrated as the return of the Goddess after her winter hibernation. This is the time when the crone or wise woman is transformed once again into the maiden. I have posted rituals to celebrate the turning of the wheel for those who are members of our subscription series. Autumn Equinox Click Here Spring Equinox Click here
September 28th Pluto goes direct
Having been retrograde since April 20th, Pluto begins to move forward. Under a Pluto transit we feel pressure to eliminate and release the old, worn out and obsolete in our lives. We are urged to let go of attitudes, emotions and fears around security. Since April we have been undergoing an internal house cleaning. I will be posting a guided audio meditation to assist in working with this energy of transformation and supporting this necessary internal house cleaning. This meditation can be done anytime before Pluto goes direct. The solar eclipse will certainly bring up old issues around security prior to Pluto beginning its forward motion so I highly encourage you to take the time to do some mental and emotional house cleaning.
