A shadowed figure embraces the day - holding their arms out and facing an orange sky.

Halfway through with the year’s third quarter, we enter the energetic and spirited month of September. The number “9” vibrations of completion and transition, initially the seventh month, represent spiritual growth.

At the beginning of the month, we will begin to feel focused and renewed. Although we are still processing the beginning of this year, September comes jammed pack with refinement, healing, and adjustment.

Not only will this month provide us an opportunity to integrate the most recent spiritual changes, shift our lens of consciousness, but we will also journey into Autumn Equinox, the ultimate balancing of light & dark.

This month’s focus should be on uncompleted tasks, refining your goals, and finding new ways to improve your current situation. From the Virgo New Moon to the Pisces Full Moon, September wants us to dive deep within, take a good look at ourselves, find out what still needs healing, and apply forgiveness for ourselves and others.

The energy begins to slow down as the dog days of Summer give way to the cool Fall nights. Nevertheless, we have harnessed a great deal of fuel for our creative endeavors to carry us into the months ahead and even into 2022.

Fine-tuning your desires for emotional fulfillment and helping you learn that if there is something better out for you, sometimes for you to find that. You have to trust the whispers of supportive guidance from your intuition, leap, and let go.

Lessons surrounding boundaries this summer have been monumental, with more planetary shifts this month reminding us that we all have the power of authority and creation in our lives. By releasing the dead weight of the past, we can regenerate into the most brilliant version of ourselves.

From mutable oppositions to squares involving Venus, Fall Equinox, and Mercury’s finale, September is a new dimension of understanding and a beautiful transition into the rest of the year.

Let’s explore this month’s planetary conversations!

Your September 2021 Energy Forecast

September 4th, Mars Opposite Neptune (Virgo/Pisces)

Illusionary Distractions

When Mars and Neptune connect, exciting themes come into play. Themes of ambition, drive, creativity, imagination, sexuality, power, and life purpose.

Mars’s most recent transits urged us to recognize the right action of the heart, slow down, and make sure we are heading on the right path. So often, we attach ourselves to a myriad of things in the physical realm, leaving us confused in our sense of direction and life purpose. Mars forms a harmonious trine with Pluto during this opposition, while Neptune is sextile Pluto creating a mystic triangle.

Stimulated by a T-square involving the Moon, Venus, and Pluto, there is some minor conflict and pressure giving stimulus to the true expression of the heart. If you can see how attachments to your urge to survive and material desires may sometimes cloud your judgment and ability to see the real picture. This aspect will prove to be a very successful shift.

Dance, music, tantric arts, meditation, and poetry are all great ways to channel any excess energy and relieve stress during this time. Learning to dissolve attachments leads to greater spiritual enlightenment.

September 7th, Virgo New Moon

Holistic Refinement

Today sets the stage for a significant calibration and healing of our lower body system as the Virgo New Moon aligns us with our divine light.

After the last two Aquarian Full Moons, Virgo comes in with integrity, purity, and refinement. The master/healer teacher of mindfulness and wellness for the mind, body, and soul, Virgo is the light of perfection in all of creation. It is the zodiac sign with an inquiring mind, excellent memory, and intuition.

Neptune throws some minor illusions into the mix while in a multiple-planet opposition with the New Moon, Sun, and Mars. Whenever Neptune is involved, there are lessons surrounding our clouded vision and our ability to act and accomplish goals.

A New Moon cycle suggests we are giving birth to something personally and emotionally fulfilling that will ground us in our soul’s purpose. This New Moon represents a time when you rise above past defeats and challenges and use the active mind to find new successful ways to evolve.

Recent lightning storms cleared our environment of distractions, illusions, and disempowering stories. Allow this New Moon to shift your mindset and daily routine so that you can be of better service to the world.

Happy New Moon!

September 10th, Venus Enters Scorpio

Emotional Power of the Heart

Venus wastes no time swiftly moving into passionate Scorpio. Here, we dive deep below the surface of the subconscious to release the entrapments of this physical realm in a journey to discover the alchemical properties of the heart.

Venus may have a challenging time in Scorpio, but that is because the energy tends to amplify the need for authentic and intimate relationships with others.

Most importantly, cultivating an authentic relationship with yourself opens the door to fulfillment.

Venus takes us beyond the barriers of jealousy, obsession, the desire to control, and emotional attachments to tap into our inner power and deepen our perception to become more in touch with the hidden power of sexuality and inner relationship.

September 17th, Venus Square Saturn (Scorpio/Aquarius)

Social Restrictions

Energy Tips for September

Significant planet stations take us by storm this month, launching us into a new season of abundance, healing, growth, and success. Sometimes, solitude is the only way to find the answers we seek. Carving out sacred space from the everyday hustle and bustle of life, to be alone and at peace with your thoughts.

This month’s energy oracle card is “Soul retrieval,” deep soul healing with the Goddess. This card is brought to you by the Isis Oracle deck.

Soul retrieval is divine confirmation that September represents an opportunity to make peace with the past and reclaim lost pieces of you. Pieces of your soul have become trapped in the past due to traumatic experiences and relationships. Lady Isis guides you into compassionate forgiveness so that you may reclaim those pieces and transition into a new season.

September is the turning point and transition of the seasons from light to dark. We are integrating our true expression in the dark void. September will indeed highlight the many spiritual shifts we have experienced this year.

Use this month to:

  • Seek solitude and turn inward for answers
  • Donate old things and/or give back to the community
  • Celebrate abundance and home life
  • Set goals for the remainder of the year

We are incredibly powerful and most powerful when emotions are involved – the electrifying current that shapes the future.

So, tune into your emotional awareness and practice mindfulness this month. Don’t let fear overtake you and get lost in its undertow: tune inward, trust, and flow.
