As we transition into the final quarter of 2018 we will continue to integrate the influences the recent eclipse cycle has had on each of us. The wheel will turn once again towards the end of September with the Equinox and we are all made aware that a shift of energy is flowing through us. The Goddess continues to call, awakening us to the need to change the relationship we humans have with the natural world. Her voice is getting louder and we can no longer ignore the impact our decisions will have on our water planet for the next seven generations.
September 6th Saturn Turn Direct
Saturn has been in retrograde since April. With Saturn currently passing through Capricorn in this final week, review areas in your life that need reassessment. The Total lunar eclipse has certainly brought into awareness where we need to establish boundaries. Learn to say NO to giving away your precious energy and really explore your motivation in the things that you do. If something or someone is not supporting you in moving forward you need to walk away. Often times we say yes because we are afraid of saying NO. Saturn retrograde teaches us to clearly define what is acceptable and what is not in our life, so we can spend our energy on what really matters to our soul. If you don’t want something, or someone, figure out the karma that brought it to you. Learn the lesson of why you called it in the first place, make peace with it or them, and then truly let it go. Listen to the story you tell yourself and tell others. Ask yourself why you choose to remain less than who you are and how you use a past situation, relationship or experience as an excuse or crutch. Saturn will call you out to stop making excuses. Reevaluate your commitments as Saturn rules time. Open to a deeper understanding of the life lessons your karmic attachments are providing for your soul’s growth. Become clear on how your beautiful energy is best served in alignment with the Goddess. For those who desire a deeper understanding of their karmic lessons and attachments, I will be available for Karmic Life Lesson Readings in September/October. Please click here for a description.
September 9th New Moon in Virgo
A Virgo new moon is an excellent time for manifestation and intention setting. The seeds you plant in this new moon, you will see come to fruition with the February full moon in Virgo in 2019. Virgo is an earth sign and can ground your intentions deeply into the dragon lines. A Virgo new moon reminds us to nurture our own needs and to begin a detox for the physical, mental and spiritual body. We have changed after the eclipse cycle and our visual expression will change as well. For those who are members of our online subscription series, a New Moon ritual has been posted to support one in making a deeper connection for planting seeds of intention. Click Here
September 21st/22nd Equinox – Northern Hemisphere
The Equinox provides a time “Between the worlds.” A window opens to 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. In the Northern Hemisphere we will celebrate the Autumn Equinox, also known, as Mabon. As we give thanks for the abundance that the long days and strong power of summer have given, we 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 is dying as we look ahead to the brightness of the future. For the Mabon ritual click here. In the Southern Hemisphere we celebrate the Spring Equinox. For thousands of years, cultures have viewed the turning of the seasons from winter to spring as a time for revelry. The first day of spring meant ringing in a new year with fertility and wine festivals to honor the Earth. This will be an even more potent celebration as we move from the shadow of the eclipse into the promise of rebirthing. For the Spring Equinox ritual click here.
September 25th – Aires Full Moon dedicated to the Warrior Goddess of the Tuatha Dé Danann
This full moon brings an interesting and powerful combination of masculine and feminine energies. The yin/yang polarity is always inherent in a full moon (Sun/Moon), but in this Aries/Libra combination we have the other classic yin/yang combination at play, the Mars/Venus dynamic. This Aries Full Moon is a momentous one, a toss-up between individuality vs. relationships and partnerships. The September 2018 full moon offers solutions to these problems. Positive energy from Mars and Uranus will give us extra courage and an opportunity to overcome what we perceive as obstacles in our life and our personal demons. Whether it is a fear of loneliness, change, opening our hearts for love, intimacy or success, the full moon in September will support each of us in overcoming fears and inhibitions. There is an extra surge of energy that gives the drive, initiative and courage to overcome whatever tests and challenges this full moon will illuminate. Under the guiding light of the Goddess we each have the potential of letting our sacred warrior support our inner Goddess. I will be posting a full moon ritual and guided audio mediation in the next week to support this powerful influence of the full moon. Each full moon has a relationship to the previous new moon so the intentions set on the September 9th new moon can be fine tuned with this full moon. We can make emotional adjustments in response to our new new goals.
September 30th – Pluto turns Direct
Pluto was named after the Roman god of the underworld, the land of the dead. Like its namesake, the planet Pluto rules over the shadow side of everything and everyone. So when Pluto begins moving direct (forward), issues of corruption and buried stories will surface; that thin veneer of untruth will be peeled away to expose truth. Everyone is exposed so we may discover the politician who has been taking bribes, an organization that has covered up hidden secrets for personal greed, or a friend who has a hidden agenda. The past several months as Pluto has been retrograding amplified with the total lunar eclipse, we have had to get honest with ourselves on what motivates us. As Pluto goes direct, our true selves will be presented to the external world. We are getting closer to the unveiling of our new identity with the turning of the wheel into 2019. (I will be sharing more about 2019 in another newsletter).
