ESSENCE OF MONTH: SEPTEMBER

September Mantra: I Receive

Hello, bountiful season of the harvest! September has a bit of mystical charm around it this year. It’s one to slow down and really listen into those intuitive and instinctual messages coming from our bodies rather than our heads. Adding up to an 11/2 this year, great inspiration is at our fingertips if we really plug into the quiet, open spaces that are unseen. Be like an antenna, receiving what comes to you, whether information, material, or love. September also always holds the energy of 9, of endings, universal love, and adventure. When we layer these on top of our yearly number 2, we get a very focused energy that wants to reflect on what’s coming to a close and catching new insights for what’s to come for the autumn. There will be a lot of bustle to wrap some things up, but in a careful and thoughtful way. Allow yourself extra freedom to flow with the energies that be. Try to honor your time and energy with things that are truly important rather than burning out by trying to do everything. Challenge yourself to take a few things off of your plate so that you can have more mindful days rather than days that frazzle your nervous fires.

The Solar & Lunar Seasons of September
VIRGO SEASON (ends September 22nd evening): Our season of cultivation.

As we move through the season of Virgo until the 22nd, find greater value in your processes, in how all of the daily habits, rituals, and duties that you attend to are truly what create the rhythms that determine what your purpose and offerings to your communities are. Make what you do—your work, your practices—feel sacred and rich with pleasure and sensual honoring. Mercury, ruler of this season, will be in a very quick step this month. Hold on and feel excited about getting places that you’ve struggled to reach all summer.

At the September 9th Virgo New Moon, we have our chance in the year to plant new seeds around honoring our work and wholeness. What do you visualize your wholeness to contain? What are you doing every day to contribute to that image? What can be shed that blocks this in you? Maybe it’s an attitude or an actual process that’s not grounding you to your life. Virgo rules our gut, our body brain, and has a cultivation of instinct and ability to systemize and burn impurities away. Picture this for yourself: refining an aspect of self that you value and honor and burning away that which creates blocks in your life that don’t honor your natural rhythm, your natural self. There’s so much talk at new moons of making intentions and planting seeds that will manifest over time. I’ve seen this magic work in my own life and in that of others, but there is a catch that I’m starting to see more and more clearly. If these intentions are not aligned with our truth and the curriculum of our souls in this life, they tend to create problems rather than dreams. Not all souls are not here to learn about great wealth, bigger homes, dream cars, raising kids, being a star, or saving the world or others. It helps to know your astrology chart to see what you are here to learn, but you can witness through your current instincts in Virgo Season what purpose you are consciously or unconsciously cultivating. Dive into this. Step back and witness what your little efforts each day tend to produce and how that may tell you something about you purpose in this lifetime. Maybe this is a very humbling life or a life that wants you to step into greater power. Either way, it’s a path that can be made beautiful by attending to your days with sacred rhythm and virtuous effort. This is what your Virgo New Moon intentions should be shaped around.

Opposed Neptune, a balance is being called in for finding hints of compassion and art inside of your details. Trine Pluto, we have access to greater precision and control in the processes we cultivate this year. Sextile Jupiter, if we take the time to notice or ask, we can find opportunity and resources for the work we desire to connect with. Mercury, ruler of Virgo, also has some lovely connections bringing a steady building of our authority through focus, brilliant intuitive knowing, and unique openings around value and worth.

LIBRA SEASON (Autumn Equinox, September 22nd): Our season of balanced exchange.

Welcome to the darker half of the year and the quarter of autumn. The sun’s move into Libra brings a time of sharing, gathering, and dancing between light warmth and darkening chills. There’s something deeply romantic about this time of year that has us longing for the kind of intellectual and aesthetic harmony that poetry is made of. Libra Season is all about fairness, the dances we engage within relationships, and harmonizing our lives to the lives of others. The light half of the year is about our growth and development, and now as leaves change colors and fall from their branches, we are inspired to let go of self in order to be part of the bigger picture, to compromise and shift. This is a step that’s necessary for getting ready to go through metaphoric deaths that bring intimacy, intensity, and powerful transformation (that we’ll see next season). If we don’t learn how to engage with the give and take in life, we won’t be ready to go deep in Scorpio’s mid-autumn phase.

The ruler of Libra, Venus, will be in Scorpio for all of September’s Libra Season, so there are already eerie notes of getting intimate with others right off the bat. With numbers and Chinese astrology for the year, we can expect that our ability to balance and exchange will be put to the test at deeper parts of our souls this year. We can expect to learn a lot about our own inner demons around relationships and possessiveness. Some stubbornness will need to be uprooted in order to see what’s being blocked around our airy elegance.

On the Aries Full Moon of the 24th, some difficult scenarios may play out—some feeling fateful. Right on top of the wounded healer, Chiron, something that may have recently popped up around identity, independence, or sense of boundaries could be put to the test. We are seeing with more clarity at this moon that our boundaries may need some shifting in order to allow others to help us be more elegant. Our trust in self and others may be tested, pushing old wounds to the surface. Something needs to be attended to that helps us better recognize ourselves and our health around our ability to trust. With Mercury conjunct the Sun, communication within our relationships is essential. There is information from others that we need in order to understand how our boundaries and selves have affected those close to us. A civil exchange of information may help you to see where you need to open or close yourself more, or reestablish how you find trust in your decisions. Your relationships are a reflection of how you trust yourself. They are telling you a lot about this right now. If a boundary feels betrayed or badly reacted to at this moon, look at this as if it’s a mirror. Have you made boundaries or decisions out of fear, distrust, or selfishness? If so, the things you feel are unfair may be the effects of how you’ve asserted your own energies, boomeranging back to you through scenarios that were channeled through others. I’m not saying anyone is right or wrong here. No pointing fingers from me. I’m just saying, if trust issues or boundaries come up, look at your own patterns first. The universe will always find the perfect vehicles (people or circumstances) needed to help you see your personal curriculum. This moon is showing us our curriculum around trust (self vs. others).

Squaring off to Saturn, we may also contend with a dynamic pressure that is forcing us to stay responsible to our aspirational efforts while we adjust these boundary and trust issues. The upside to all of this is the amazing learning potential to really see where we are sabotaging ourselves or needing deep shifts in how we assert and create our personal boundaries. Many of us will likely learn at this moon if those are too selfish or not selfish enough. This is ultimately a gift even though it’s going to cause some initial reaction. Luckily Mars, ruler of the Arise Full Moon, will be making a nice angle to all of these more difficult connections. This should bring a lot of drive and energy to make progress and cultivate deeper clarity.


ARIES

March 21 - April 19

ESSENCE OF WEEK
September 3rd-9th

Slow down and look at the pulse of your presence, your vitality, and your creative juices. How are these things pushing you to walk onto new paths and recognize fresh impulses? You may feel some truths that you heart has held needing to be shed as you face a reorienting of your connection to leadership, children, creativity, and how you hold the spotlight.

On Sunday, the Virgo New Moon lunar cycle will ignite fresh seeds around your work and daily processes (or lifestyle). This year, these Virgo seeds want you to deeply connect to value in the work you do and honor your instincts in how your everyday cultivates your greater purpose in life. No biggie, right! The key here is in slowing down and savoring the things about your daily rituals and systems that bring you joy, while finding ways to eliminate things you only think you should be doing, but that maybe don't need to be done. What's cluttering your days and what's bringing pleasure to your days? Or, how can you find greater please in the routine things that your days need to hold?

Looking forward, on Monday, you have your planetary ruler, Mars, moving into Aquarius. This will be a fresh breath of air as so much of your life (since Spring Equinox) has been filled with pressures in career or worldly position. Mars has been in Capricorn and then in a retrograde phase in Aquarius and Capricorn, but now it's time to shake some things up in your life. Put on your humanitarian, freedom loving, rule breaking, and revolutionary cap. Aquarius wants you to see your life through unique prisms and perspective in order to break you free from anything that's become overly solidified in your life.

September 10th-16th

This week is one to find personal space, a little extra exercise to sweat out old toxins, and to find fresh energy around your value and interests. Review the Virgo New Moon and your intentions that you created for it, near the end of this week, and see how you can refine these with more specificity and context.

LONG TERM ESSENCE (This will only change when a big cycle shifts for you)
Look at your life from a 10,000 ft. perspective right now. Can you spot the opportunities, the potential for growth and enterprise? Can you see the general direction you need to head in order to broaden your horizons and give you wiser perspective in your life?


TAURUS

April 20 - May 20

ESSENCE OF WEEK
September 3rd-9th

Can you feel your heart and your inner beat, your truth, starting to find new orienting direction. Something may be bringing your inner child back to life as new paths open to you around how you create and command with presence. Specifically, look to your home life. How is this shifting in a way that is shedding one long cycle of life while birthing new conditions that are more deeply aligned to who you are becoming? This week, step back to look at the big picture of this.

Come Sunday, a new lunar cycle, initiated with the Virgo New Moon, will have you looking at your creative sensibilities: How you have been valuing your senses in your creative processes. Systems and seasons may be at the root of your creative drive and now is the time to explore how nature's brilliant ability to organize and shine can inspire how you are doing this in your life. Listen, taste, touch, smell, and witness the natural world this week. Slow down and find a more pleasurable place to your command in the world, to your presence.

On Sunday, your ruler, Venus, will move into the sign of Scorpio, pointing you toward your shared resources, the intimacy and sharing of your life with a partner, and giving form to your relationships in rich and intense ways.

September 10th-16th

This week is one to find personal space, a little extra exercise to sweat out old toxins, and to find fresh energy around your value and interests. Review the Virgo New Moon and your intentions that you created for it, near the end of this week, and see how you can refine these with more specificity and context.

LONG TERM ESSENCE (This will only change when a big cycle shifts for you)

Push into the pressures and the alignments needed in your life right now. These are solidifying your position and place in the world. It's possible that you are carrying a lot on your shoulders, but you have trained for this time of position in the world for the past 15 years.



GEMINI

May 21 - June 20

ESSENCE OF WEEK
September 3rd-9th

A big step back is called for this week to review how your heart and your deepest inner truth has been reorienting, ending cycles, stepping excitedly onto new paths, and finding a boldness in your presence. For you, this will likely be expressed through how you feel belonging in your life, through your community and the connections you are making, the information you are learning, and through how you are communicating, writing, or speaking to and with others. This is the most exciting phase in a long term cycle that this part of your communicative life will go through: Sparks bringing you to life, paths opening, new DNA forming, and impulse leading you toward unfamiliar yet promising frontiers. Revel in this until the new moon on Sunday. A new phase for this aspect of your life is just around that corner that will call for a slower, more valued growth.

As we arrive to Sunday's Virgo New Moon, this lunar cycle will lead you on a journey to find greater pleasure and systemic sensuality in your home life, in your sense of security, and in how you nurture or mother yourself and/or loved ones. The next month will have you going deep into your roots with your senses heightened to give you feedback on your instincts and daily rhythms around home and family. Are these things valued by you enough? Are you honoring the worth of your roots in life? Are you nurturing your ability to organize and follow the systems that nature and seasons brilliantly model?

September 10th-16th

This week is one to find personal space, a little extra exercise to sweat out old toxins, and to find fresh energy around your value and interests. Review the Virgo New Moon and your intentions that you created for it, near the end of this week, and see how you can refine these with more specificity and context.

LONG TERM ESSENCE (This will only change when a big cycle shifts for you)

There are things about your life right now that you are seeing with great progressive vision. You are looking toward the future and innovating to create that future place. This can mean rebelling against outmoded structures in your life. It's part of a cycle of life that may bring out your inner genius before you move into a new phase of surrender and release, just around the corner. Enjoy this time of heightened excitement and co-creation.


CANCER

June 21 - June 20

ESSENCE OF WEEK
September 3rd-9th

As we close out the Leo lunar cycle this week, it's one where you may be able to step back and see the bigger picture of endings and beginnings in your life. Of how your heart is leading you toward a greater sense of value and form in your life. Of greater self-worth. It can be hard to let so much go in order to move into who we are becoming, and you are certainly a sign that has a lot of this going on. Take it step-by-step, but specifically this week, look at the excitement of new paths before you that are going to allow your heart to be more present to your material and sensual side of life.

Coming to the Virgo New Moon lunar cycle on Sunday, the next month will have you finding greater self-worth and value in how you are connecting, finding belonging, and community in your life. Yours is a connection and mental style that is instinctual, organized, refined, and perfectionist. Systems and organization likely interest you. Work on using your senses to help you give more form and value to your ideas and communities. Find inspiration through nature's design of seasons and cycles. Watch how your favorite animals connect and learn. Be a little slower and more sensual in your approach to ideas over the next month.

September 10th-16th

This week is one to find personal space, a little extra exercise to sweat out old toxins, and to find fresh energy around your value and interests. Review the Virgo New Moon and your intentions that you created for it, near the end of this week, and see how you can refine these with more specificity and context.

LONG TERM ESSENCE (This will only change when a big cycle shifts for you)

Are you going through absolute exhaustion right now? There is a purpose to this. It's signaling that you need to let go of some things, to surrender and ask for something bigger to help you do this. By doing this, powerful compassion can come to your surface, and through that a certain flow and moments of inspired visions for what's coming next. You may feel this need to initiate, but it's not time yet. You need to rest, dream, sleep, heal, and explore your shadows and secrets. Sometime over the next 18-months, you will step into a huge new long-term cycle, just be patient and move with the healing vibes that are around you.



LEO

July 23 - August 22

ESSENCE OF WEEK
September 3rd-9th

Although we have been out of your solar season since August 23rd, Your lunar cycle only began on August 11th, so is coming into its last quarter phase this week. This is a phase of stepping back to see things from a detached observation. Because the north node is in your sign, hence eclipses, this has been a lunar cycle that likely trying to shake your world toward a different path and way of being vital and living with the truth of your heart. This often means great endings as well as great beginnings have to simultaneously be tended to. Do keep your heart open, let things move through you, and connect to the boldness of fresh paths opening to you. Connect to your impulse, to the vibrations of your DNA forming new ladders and spirals at a cellular level in your body, hence your outer life. Get centered in yourself and find the courage to walk onto new paths. Not all of them will be the path you find suits you, but you have to try a few on for size in order to know what's right for you. Also, just because something new doesn't burst with the kind of traction and growth you wan to see, doesn't mean its wrong. Seasons and cycles are a process and right now you are just needing to figure out what you are truly passionate about in your heart of hearts.

As we come to the Virgo New Moon on Sunday, our lunar cycle will initiate that matches our current solar season of Virgo. For you, this is and will be all about finding self-worth, value, and pleasure through the natural systems that you give form to. Slowly molding things in your days and through your work likely brings you great pleasure. Work in general may feel like a thing of beauty to you that brings your senses alive, and be a thing that generates income because of how you honor and value what you do day in and day out.

September 10th-16th

This week is one to find personal space, a little extra exercise to sweat out old toxins, and to find fresh energy around your value and interests. Review the Virgo New Moon and your intentions that you created for it, near the end of this week, and see how you can refine these with more specificity and context.

LONG TERM ESSENCE (This will only change when a big cycle shifts for you)

To emphasize the above, your greatest job at this time is to clear old things from your life, to find personal centering and stillness in order to connect to new desires, boundaries, and paths in your life and identity. What do you want? What's your agenda right now? The great spirit of the eastern sunrises are listening and taking your orders.


VIRGO

August 23 - September 22

ESSENCE OF WEEK
September 3rd-9th

It may be your solar season, Virgo, but in the more emotional unseen realms, you are still processing things from the Leo lunar cycle, one that initiated as an eclipse on the 11th of August. As we move through this final week of this Leo's new seeds, it's a time to step back and find detachment as well as observation of the things that your heart has whispered to you. Lots of reorienting has taken place around how you connect to art, spirit, healing, mysticism, and the ethereal realms. What new presence is being felt and impulsively followed? What are you releasing about your presence that's been a part of you for a long time. What of your shadows have you seen and cleaned out? You are a leader in the mystical and art realms. Find your bold ability to stand in composition and chaos where surrender and inspiration live. Where guides and other realms are close by. Ask them what you need to know and about the possibly confusing paths you are feeling compelled to follow.

On Sunday, the new moon will start your personal lunar cycle. Just as the sun is in your sign, waking up new vitality and energy in your life, the moon will begin to help you form new centering and process emotional and unconscious seeds to plant, grow, and tend to over the next six months. Find a little extra alone time on Sunday to truly connect to your personal lunar cycle and solar season that want you to find your boundaries, your passions, and your Self. What do you want for you? What's feeling bold and impulsive inside of you? This year, in the Virgo New Moon intention that you make, I challenge you to truly tap into and honor the things about yourself that you know hold value and bring you great pleasure. Open your senses as you make intentions.Buy flowers, sit somewhere that brings you joy, and listen to nature's messages.

On Wednesday night, your ruler, Mercury, will shift into your own sign. This will help to perk you up and awaken your inner passions. He's been in your shadow house since your solar season began, and now he's rested and ready to help you push into the kind of work you are craving to do.

September 10th-16th

This week is one to find personal space, a little extra exercise to sweat out old toxins, and to find fresh energy around your value and interests. Review the Virgo New Moon and your intentions that you created for it, near the end of this week, and see how you can refine these with more specificity and context.

LONG TERM ESSENCE (This will only change when a big cycle shifts for you)

You are in a processes of figuring out what you value and how you want to connect to the material world with more ease, pleasure, and slow sensual stimulation. Go slow, take time to smell the roses, and treat yourself to special things to let yourself know you are worth the price. Bank on yourself and find a stronger voice to claim what should be yours, to receive graciously, and to find more ownership and pride in your purpose and work in the world.



LIBRA

September 23 - October 22

ESSENCE OF WEEK
September 3rd-9th

We move into the last quarter and balsamic moon phases this week. These are phases where we need to step back, detach a little, and take stock through observing our lives in relation to the greater world and spiritual questions. This current lunar cycle has been a very special one connected to the Leo solar eclipse. We initiated this Leo lunar cycle on August 11th. Take a moment to look back on the past several weeks. What kinds of endings and beginnings have you felt? Eclipses, and specifically this eclipse, is pushing us onto new long term paths. For you, this will likely be expressed through friendships, groups you are involved in, co-creating, and progressive notions of what the future holds and what you want to create to push the innovative sprit of your life and humanity. You are shedding one way of being in groups and finding great new impulse. Witness the excitement. Know that even if the kind of growth you are hoping for in these things isn't where you hoped it'd be, that it's a process. If you are passionate about something, be patient and give your heart over to it. You are a leader in the group realm, possibly in your own detached way, but your creative energy is very directed toward the progress of humanity.

Sunday brings us to a new lunar cycle, the Virgo one that matches our current solar season. For you this will help you to form and create new seeds that will give you over to systemic healing, purposeful and practical art, and mystical works. What does your soul crave in the realm of organizing and harvesting your spiritual side? Honor and value you this over the next four weeks. Find out how in slowing down and doing less, you may be able to do more work in more mystical and inspired ways.

Also on Sunday, your ruler, Venus, will move into Scorpio. You will shift from a touch of self-focus and acting out of personal desires toward one of fulfilling your animal needs. Your material life will feel more important. Things may feel easier yet more intense and intimate in how you value yourself and form worth in your life and through your senses.

September 10th-16th

This week is one to find personal space, a little extra exercise to sweat out old toxins, and to find fresh energy around your value and interests. Review the Virgo New Moon and your intentions that you created for it, near the end of this week, and see how you can refine these with more specificity and context.

LONG TERM ESSENCE (This will only change when a big cycle shifts for you)

Right now your spiritual curriculum is pushing on you to learn more about your sense of belonging, how you communicate and connect, and stimulating you to be curious and learn lots of new things. This is a perfect time to engage with community and solve your inner paradoxes through movement, connection, and communication.


SCORPIO

October 23 - November 21

ESSENCE OF WEEK
September 3rd-9th

WE come to the close of the Leo lunar cycle this week, one that initiated on a reorienting solar eclipse. Thank back from August 11th, what about your heart and presence has shifted, found new beats, passions, and paths? Specifically for your sign, how has your career or position in the world been working through a process of clearing out old ways and impulsively heading out on new paths and new frontiers? How are your aspirations finding rebirths? How will you lead your heart's newly forming beat in grand new directions and toward great new mountains to climb?

Sunday ignites a new lunar cycle, the Virgo lunar cycle. This is a time to find greater stillness and carve out some alone time. Matching the solar season of Virgo, new seeds will begin to form starting on Sunday. These will hold the DNA of how you want to process, systemize, and refine your life. All of the little daily rituals you have, add up to make something of wholeness in us that shows us our purpose. For you, the work and systems you cultivate are linked to co-creation, friendships, and humanity. Slow down over the next month and tap into the value of this, of how your work is the thing that keeps the innovation of our world in order. That big and that deserves you honoring this ability in yourself, hence showing others that this aspect of you deserves honor and value.

September 10th-16th

This week is one to find personal space, a little extra exercise to sweat out old toxins, and to find fresh energy around your value and interests. Review the Virgo New Moon and your intentions that you created for it, near the end of this week, and see how you can refine these with more specificity and context.

LONG TERM ESSENCE (This will only change when a big cycle shifts for you)

A part of you is very focused on your private life, your foundations, and your security. You may be digging into your roots and family lineage right now. You may be tending to much needed nurturing of your soul and your home or family. This is your time to understand how you want to grow and mature in soulful, caring ways.



SAGITTARIUS

November 22 - December 21

ESSENCE OF WEEK
September 3rd-9th

Step back and look at the big pictures and philosophies in your life this week. How are you sharing your visions and beliefs with others? How are you listening to those that others have to help broaden your perspectives? New impulses may be igniting in you around foreign opportunities, expansion through your creative presence or leadership of great visionary things. Have you always wanted to write a book or do something in publishing? Find extra stillness to feel into this and gain clarity around how you can plug into the collective in your grand hopes and dreams.

Sunday aligns our unconscious and conscious lives at a new moon in Virgo. This is your time to reignite some passion and form new seeds around what you want to stand for in the world - your position, title, aspirations, and authority. This is a time to focus and work on the alignment and integrity of your life. With Virgo ruling over your 10th house, you need to align with great purpose, use, and practices in your life. Areas of wellness, lifestyle, plant medicines, anything holistic in nature or that uses natural systems and seasons is a place to start if you're not sure. This year there may be extra emphasis in your life around how your work and your career converge to help you feel a strength of voice, value, and honor in what you give to the world. Honor the wholeness of your life and your work and this will show others what they need to value and honor in these things as well.

September 10th-16th

This week is one to find personal space, a little extra exercise to sweat out old toxins, and to find fresh energy around your value and interests. Review the Virgo New Moon and your intentions that you created for it, near the end of this week, and see how you can refine these with more specificity and context.

LONG TERM ESSENCE (This will only change when a big cycle shifts for you)

You are in a sort of interesting phase Sag. On one hand, your ruler, Jupiter, is ending his 12 year tour of your chart, currently uprooting things in the shadows of your life that need to be witnessed and processes. This uprooting is bringing greater empowerment and precision in how you are healing, finding compassion, and surrendering to bigger cosmic forces. On the other hand, your sign is also moving through spiritual lessons of how to hold command and the spotlight, how to be present, warm, and creative. This convergence can produce some amazing art—use your heart to lead the way.


CAPRICORN

December 22 - January 19

ESSENCE OF WEEK
September 3rd-9th

This week we close one lunar cycle and ignite a new one to match our current solar season of Virgo. First, as we move through the balsamic phase of the moon this week, the Leo lunar cycle that was on a solar eclipse, is giving us some closure and finality around the Leo seeds that we planted near August 11th. Leo is in a big new phase of initiating impulse and fresh vibration around our presence, our hearts, our style, and our command. This means that some things must go to make space for what's to come. For many, this has brought endings and for even more, bright new horizons to awaken to. Step back this week and look at any new views that are unfolding in your life. What from your dreams are starting to hold potential and unmapped paths? Surrender to these and know that even if things feel big and too complicated to know where to start, that right now, this week, some cosmic messages will tell you the way forward. For you, dear Capricorn, pay close attention to how you control things, how you feel power, and what is getting uprooted around this. Surgery, work with psychologists, or an awakening around how you are intimate in appropriate or inappropriate ways could come to light, showing you different avenues to feel empowered and empower others. These may help you let go of some baggage around how you heart and creativity has been intensely controlling or controlled. Pull it all up and see what's been blocking you from your heart's loving life-force.

The Virgo New Moon on Sunday afternoon will launch a new lunar cycle. At this one, new seeds of intent will start to form around how you are whole and well in your daily rhythms, systems, processes, work, and lifestyle. It's the small things that we do with honor each day that add up to our purpose to give out to others. How are your everyday routines contributing to what you believe your purpose and work are? This year's Virgo seeds are great ones to find a slower pace that can show you that by doing less and focusing on what you value and find pleasure in, more is produced. For you, this may connect to how you share your philosophies and stories with the world, how you are expanding in your life, and pushing your comfort zones around greater perspectives.

September 10th-16th

This week is one to find personal space, a little extra exercise to sweat out old toxins, and to find fresh energy around your value and interests. Review the Virgo New Moon and your intentions that you created for it, near the end of this week, and see how you can refine these with more specificity and context.

LONG TERM ESSENCE (This will only change when a big cycle shifts for you)

Cappy, you've had a hazy few years, possibly filled with some beautiful inspiration and illumination, but also heavy mists that have prevented you from truly moving forward. It's now time. Your ruler, Saturn, moved into a brand new long term cycle near the New Year as he entered your own sign for the first time in 27 years. Just months after this happened, he decided to do a little under the hood maintenance in a near 5 month retrograde to check your foundations, alignments, an overall integrity. It's likely that you have seen where the repairs are needing a little TLC, but now Saturn has stationed back to direct (September 6th) and it's time for you to build a whole new 29 year cycle in your life. The DNA of that is going to be contained in what you become passionate and impulsive in over the next two years as Saturn resets your trajectories and outlook on life.



AQUARIUS

January 20 - February 18

ESSENCE OF WEEK
September 3rd-9th

Stepping foot into September, the sun, or solar season, puts us in Virgo's territory. For you, Virgo rules over your 8th house, or how you go deep in your life. Virgo wants refinement, systems, neatness, and organization. It's masterful at analyzing and critiquing. This sign and season also have a lot to do with the work we produce in the world, due to its productive bent and need to be whole and of use in world. It helps us create daily rhythm and can make the mundane sacred if we can find a calmness and allow for an organic way forward. Tied to your 8th house, you may have processes and routines that make you good at seeing under the surface, at cutting through the psychology of things to see what the wholeness of work and daily life should be. This can make you a great lifestyle surgeon, knowing what will keep our daily efforts precise and empowering—no bullshit, no time for fluff. This concoction makes you a powerful force in the work place and in creating well strategic processes.

At the Virgo New Moon on the 9th, this is your chance in the year to tap into what's newly feeling passionate and impulsive inside of you around your purpose and worth. Find some stillness in the week following the 9th and get clear about what your ideal wholeness looks like now, and what you'd like it to look like in six months from now. How are surfacing passions tying into this? At their roots, are they pointing you toward a path that will make you feel more useful and empowered or in control of your ability to systemize and feel holistic in your life?

September 10th-16th

This week is one to find personal space, a little extra exercise to sweat out old toxins, and to find fresh energy around your value and interests. Review the Virgo New Moon and your intentions that you created for it, near the end of this week, and see how you can refine these with more specificity and context.

LONG TERM ESSENCE (This section will only change when a big cycle shifts for you)

You are in a very karmic phase of life right now. One that has a tinge of midlife crisis to it—although a mini one. You see, the south node of the moon has been traversing your sign for the past 16 months. With 2 more to go, it's time to reflect back on how life has been asking you to compromise a lot more lately. A sense of losing yourself can be felt as the south node wants you to share and exchange much of what you've cultivated and developed in yourself over the past 9 years. It can be hard to shift from life allowing you to work on self development to a phase of releasing all of that fruitfulness that you've build up, into the world. Much in the realm of relationships has likely shifted since the winter of 2017. On top of that, your ruler, Uranus, who moves signs every 7 years, just moved to a new sign (Taurus) in the spring. Another layer of needing to get used to a new orientation is felt as you shift from self-focus and community to one of self-worth and home/family/security. To add to this, Uranus moved into retrograde in August and will be meandering until January 6th. This means you are needing to do a lot of reflecting, reviewing, and inner seeking as this whole new phase of life is also pushing at you. If things feel confusing, exciting, or overwhelming, not to worry. This is a phase of getting used to a lot of big new things. Life will find a more rhythmic pace after the New Year.

ESSENCE OF WEEK
September 3rd-9th

Pisces dreamer, your are in a place of feeing quite full and illuminated in who you are and what you are manifesting on a personal level. We've just come from your personal full moon of the year as your opposite solar season of Virgo is playing out until the 22nd of this month. The full moon also signifies that it's time to start focusing on others more, and Virgo Season will help you shift into this. Although everyone has every sign in them, it is very hard for you to see the Virgo in yourself as this sign sits on your western horizon line where the sun sets. It's how you relate to others and often you only see this through seeing it reflected to you through your partnerships and relationships. It's what you look for in 'other', but really it's what you look for other to show you about you. Virgo is the zodiac's refiner, systemizer, producer, and holistic lifestyle maven. She is the only sign in the constellations depicted by a woman and her association with the world Virgin came from long ago when that word meant one whole unto themselves. This is the sign where we find our personal wholeness, purpose, and usefulness. Due to this, you have a way of relating to others that may crave perfection, refinement, and critiquing. Look deep this season and see that at its roots, you crave to feel whole and you need your partner to help you see this. Drop the word perfect and replace it with whole. Help your partners see their wholeness and they will reflect back to you, that yours is one that is very elegant and harmonious. Your purpose and use are capable of providing the world with and producing balance, fairness, and a certain earth, organic beauty.

At the September 9th Virgo New Moon, find time to be still. Think of your relationships over the course of your lifetime, and feel how under any pickiness, there has been an underlying reflection, showing you how you bring balance to lifestyle, wholeness, and your work or purpose in the world. Tap into what's newly surfacing as passionate or impulsive inside of you. Write these things down, and then, after you've felt this from your inner wisdom, ask yourself and your gut instincts, how these new wants and intentions that are vibrating in you, might be telling you of a path toward greater harmony in your work life and more wholeness in your relationships.

LONG TERM ESSENCE (This section will only change when a big cycle shifts for you)

Over the past year or 16 months, some things may have come up that have made you need to uproot major blocks in your life. These things may have led you to start seeing a psychologist, to major illnesses or surgeries, through deaths (literal and metaphoric), your sexual needs, or to look at your longterm or bigger financial picture in terms of debt or wealth building (via shared resources). Life has likely uprooted all of the most painful and difficult things that you've either blocked or hidden deep inside. Through this process though, you've been connecting to a more free flowing access to your life-force, your power, and a greater sense of control and strategy in your life. This phase is one that will show you what you are really made of.
