Dreams are becoming a reality now that September has arrived. Open your eyes this month so you can see how your dream is being manifested. The theme of the month is control and how you are wielding it. Now, I am a firm believer that control is an illusion, however, in recent times I am learning to change my perspective towards it. Control is the perfect tool to use in this illusion we call reality. It is beneficial in the sense that it allows you the advantage or disadvantage in any given situation. And this month does not fall short of showing its benefits. I am aware that I am saying it is beneficial even if the control is not your advantage. You will come to see how it in fact was. You just gotta open your eyes, quiet the mind, exhale all the tension, and assess what is transpiring.
Balance is the end goal for this month and you can attain it. However, certain steps must be taken in order for you to balance out. We start the month with a Virgo new moon on the 6th. The energy we are working with here has been ongoing since last month. It has been supplying us with awareness and attention to detail. Some people have been really motivated and productive while others are caring for themselves more attentively. The routine might have even changed for some and others have had to accept certain nuisances in regards to themselves. You see all of this is leading up to the ending of certain karmic cycles and beginning of new ones; or perhaps creation energy is being harnessed at this time. Now, this new moon in Virgo is assisting with the healing of certain aspects in your life which will help with your mental state while alleviating any stress, tension, pain, or nervousness from your body (system). It is also helping with routine, organization, communication, craftsmanship, mastery, and a more disciplined way of being. Working with this new moon is essential as it is the moon which will propel all movement forward for the rest of the year. Colors to work with are brown, green, red, silver, and white. Set your intent as precisely as you can during this new moon for today is one of the times you can be as controlled as you want while doing your magick. Do heed this warning though, if your intent is to will your will onto others or a situation do be prepared for the aftermath.
On the 10th, Venus enters Scorpio shifting the energy from a pleasant breeze to a brooding storm on its way to land. The intensity of this energy really isn’t beneficial to anyone. Yet, we are being asked to work and process through the intensity. The darker aspects of our relationships will rear its ugly head. Now, in some instances it will be beneficial to do your best to control whatever is transpiring. At other times, you will notice others trying to control either you or a situation and within here lies the lesson. Keep in mind you are learning to control your reaction and response and you will learn not everything needs a reaction or a response. A lot of things will also come into the light during this time while conversations can and will be dark even passive aggressive at times. Just count to a thousand and remember you don’t have to engage at all. Free Will is a beautiful thing to have :-)
Mars enters Libra knocking everything out of balance on the 14th. All that hard work you were doing during Mars stay in Virgo will now be put into action. Charisma will take you far during this time and being mindful of your emotions. You can become emotionally imbalanced if you are not doing something that ignites your passion. Liberate yourself from whatever routine has you in a more docile and stagnant way of doing things. Now, is a time of action, however, not of reckless action or self serving. The action which is taking place is to benefit you in order to have more control of your day to day… Of feeling purposeful and good about your actions. If you are experiencing a challenging time at the moment, then now would be the time to stop whatever it is you are doing and ask yourself what is causing you to feel out of whack. Why are you causing conflict instead of resolving it? Trust me when I say you want to work towards resolution and diplomacy as opposed to war and destruction. What? You didn't know Libra energy can be destructive? Don’t forget, Libra is the opposite to Aries and when The Libra energy feels there is no fairness or diplomacy it will in fact implement these tactics whether you like it or not. Manipulation is a hell of a drug so do be careful you aren’t using it.
On the 20th, Vesta enters Scorpio enhancing our need for a change in our home environment. Suspicion will be at an all time high driving everyone mad. Trust issues will be a thing, secretive behaviour will be discovered, power struggles will cause conflict, and insecurities will be out in the open. All of this MUST be addressed and healed in order to reap the blessings this transit is actually bringing us. Of course in the mix of the chaos nothing ever feels, looks, or sounds rewarding... it is instead volatile. Things happen in this way only because some refuse to let go of the toxicity. Others need to be shown what the toxicity is. The work you do with yourself and others (no matter who they are) will benefit you in the long run. It will teach you what it means to be compassionate of others and what it means when you aren’t. Choose wisely my friends.
On this same day, we have our last full moon of the summer season. The full moon is in Pisces further enhancing the energy of the month. It’s rising the depths of emotions, enhancing intuition, delivering messages via dreams and daydreams, causing many to lose patience and control with whatever the moon brings to light. Ahh, control what a motherfucker. We all fall victim to it because we all really think we have it and own it. Control shows you the delusion you have created in order to think you have obtained it and are maintaining it. Control is sneaky that way it gives you that comfort... that sense of false security. With this here Pisces moon, it’s showing us the falsehood in which this control was created. This day can cause many to crumble in tears while running away from whatever it is causing the disharmony, imbalance, and discomfort to break you free from this illusion. Keep in mind two planets are also in retrograde motion in Pisces which is only heightening the madness. Keep grounded today. That’s all I will recommend for this moon. Grounding meditations and cleansing baths is essential with this full moon.
On the 23rd Neptune quintile True Node. Are you ready for more discomfort? Please, don’t be disheartened. The discomfort of the day really has more to do with childhood events. The day’s energy is actually quite healing. Unfortunately, you do have to experience the discomfort of it. You won’t even know you are healing something from your childhood until you are right in the middle of its occurrence. The healing of this day will also give you a blessing which you forgot about, but has to do with your childhood wishes or dreams. Hmm, what gifts does the Universe have in store for you today and is it the only one? You will soon find out :-)
Mercury will do it’s last retrograde of the year in Libra on the 27th. Anything will happen during this time. Don’t really know how to address this transit, but I must do my best to inform. The talks, discussions, and actions during this time is more of a negotiating tactic than anything else. You are paying close attention, taking notes, forming a strategy, and jumping right into action. However, I am here to tell you all action will be stalled. You are meant to be discussing and communicating at this time. Messages, surprised visits, unexpected encounters, out of nowhere opportunities, sudden deals on things, closing of contracts, lots of resting, and quick trips are all things happening at this time. Stay grounded and fair, and do not do anything out of character for it will not be received well. Instead hold off on whatever you are working on or thinking of doing in order for it to be received well when you decide to move forward with your out of the box tactics.
Neptune quintile True Node once again on the 27th. This day can be a day of dreams. Dreamers will be stirred into action. Other dreamers will dream a new dream for this new reality they are in. Children hold the answers today so do pay close attention to them. Do something you haven’t done since you were a child and then make a wish on the brightest star you see tonight. I promise you it will come true and the time it takes won’t be long before you realize you are living in your dream. Don’t you remember you dreamed this dream as a child? Now, imagine the dream you can dream now as a more aware human being? Doesn’t that sound lovely?
Hikes during this month and baths really will help in grounding and keeping a level head. Enjoy the last of summer and the cooler days for those in the Northern Hemisphere. The time for change is here so make the most of it :-)
