The calm after the storm of eclipses and retrogrades has arrived, and with it a new set of energies emerge. August was a very intense month of purging, self realization, meticulous self-evaluation, and listening to your body. August gave us two eclipses which illuminated and activated us into proper action when it came to self-care. The month came and went on a steady pace, but with it came a lot of healing. This month, know that the moon and wishes make a powerful pairing. I’ll offer some insight on how you can use the ever-flowing energy of the heavens to make those wishes come true in a solid and healthy way.
September starts with Mercury in retrograde, but the end is in sight. On September, 5th Mercury will be in the sign of Leo when it stations direct, having ignited us into full action. Egos are tamed, fires are dwindling, and humbleness has emerged. Virgo season is in full effect, helping pave the wave for a month of calmness. That is if you can handle the energies as they shift from day to day. By this time you will be wishing for the end of the year, thinking you are ready for 2018. But hold your horses, and be careful with what you are wishing for.
On September 6th the moon will be full in Pisces. Pisces is the believer, and it encourages us to imagine, and imagine big. Pisces rules imagination, and at times gets lost in its own imaginings. With the help of Pisces, wishes are often manifested in the exact manner in which they were envisioned. However, Pisces downfall is in not understanding that your wishes aren’t the same wishes others are wishing for. Conflict arises when the wisher truly believes in their heart that what they envision is best for all, even if that isn’t always the case. Living in a bubble isn’t hard, and believing in what you are wishing for gives it energy to manifest. This full moon is a strong reminder that your belief isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.
This full moon, I suggest writing a letter with your wishes, and reading it aloud. This will help you analyze what you are wishing for. Read it every day and imagine your wish coming true, but also allowing room for a different possibility altogether.
The new moon on September 20th is in Virgo—the polar opposite to Pisces. Remember how the retrograde in Mercury last month made you analyze everything about your life? Well, this moon is going to make you think twice about what you wished for. Is this really what you want? Is this how you really see things unfolding? Are you trying to control things for personal gain, or are you truly helping those around you? Have you really thought out these wishes you so desire to come true?
Thinking about the motivation behind your wish will give it life, and that is the power of this new moon. The more you believe in yourself and what you wish for, the more energy you give it. Leaving room for the wish to flow with the Universe will help it manifest a lot quicker than you realize.
Enjoy this calm, and wish hard, but above all believe in what you are wishing for.
