By Kaye Berjot –
September 2017 has us experiencing kites like nobody’s business. Pulling and tugging is the name of the game this month. This could have us floating away, just like it can have us pulling towards the heavy weight of gravity. The autumn equinox is a time of picking and choosing, which is often times a very difficult thing to do. Yet at some point in time we recognize that meaningful paths are much more fruitful than the less desirable yet excitable paths in life. New moons and full moons arrive every single month and with those changes of the lunar phases we know what to expect. You shed something and then you start something new. This month is a little different because it’s about analyzing the situation. This month you view things from many different angles. Some of those edges are sharp and some of them are smooth. Regardless of the edges you will navigate them with grace and poise and from that vantage point you will have a beautiful story to tell.
Friday, September 1
Today the sky shines bright like a diamond as a beautiful kite forms between retrograde Uranus, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn. With the planet of abundance as the focal point in Libra, your relationships become priority. Organized chaos can be fun at times as they lead you towards new ways of sharing positive energy with others.
Saturday, September 2
Emotions could run high today due to the T-square between the Moon, retrograde Pluto, retrograde Uranus and Jupiter. You could be in overdrive and feel determined to break limiting patterns by reestablishing boundaries that push you out of your own comfort zone. It’s ok to live a little, even when it’s intimidating. Moon VoC 11:29 am until 3:06 pm entering Aquarius.
Sunday, September 3
As the moon opposes Venus your emotions and your values could be called to the carpet meaning that they could take center stage. You can no longer hide from either. So why try? It’s times like these when we ask ourselves if we should go with our heart or with our instincts. If your instincts are based upon things from the past remember that you are no longer in the past. You’re no longer dealing with the same people, these new personas have changed and evolved, just as you have.
Monday, September 4
Blessed be! We have another diamond in the sky. What you’ve done over this past weekend is to create new memories. Some of the characters were the same and some of them were new. You have a new lease on life and it couldn’t have come any sooner.
Tuesday, September 5
The universe is delivering up all sorts of yummy goodness today. Kites, Trines and Sextiles are on the menu. What more could we ask for? Maybe we just ask for the courage to seize the opportunities that are brought forward as we finally have the chance to rewrite our own history. Moon VoC 12:15 am until 12:28 am enters Pisces.
Wednesday, September 6
As the moon and Neptune snuggle up together in a conjunction in Pisces, you could feel a tad bit emotional. This could have a great deal to due with recognizing that you’d spent way too much time harboring ill will. Unshackling your self from the ties that bind has been a long time coming. Breathe because these are calming tears that flow. Moon VoC until 3:28 until tomorrow. Full Moon 2:02 am in Pisces.
Thursday, September 7
A retrograde Chiron meets up with the passing moon today where it squares Saturn. Knowledge is power and forgiveness is the ability to see truth. Today you will meet up with both so that you can heal old wounds by revealing them and not by hiding them. Moon VoC until 7:01 am enters Aries.
Friday, September 8
With the moon in Aries making a positive aspect to Venus, you have discovered a new tool, which allow you to create energy from a different space. Where as before you were creating from the past, now you are creating in the present.
Saturday, September 9
There are so many positive aspects to pull from today that it’s hard to know which one to turn to. The Moon bumps up against a retrograde Uranus has you reinventing the path. Knowing that your relationships have grown in a positive and more stabilizing way is what guides you enjoy today’s energies. Moon VoC 10:52 am until 11:22 am enters Taurus.
Sunday, September 10
With Mercury at 0 degree Virgo you have practicing a new skill or at a minimum beginning to develop one. At the beginning of the month you were learning to select your words in a way that were more heartfelt and positive. Now you are learning to do the same with your thinking patterns. Just as words have meaning so do thoughts. Moon VoC 7:54 pm until tomorrow.
Monday, September 11
You recognize where you have gone wrong in the past and are determined to no longer walk that path as the Sun in Virgo looks across the table at a retrograde Neptune in Pisces. It is possible to heal yourself and heal others at the same time. Yet it’s much more effective if you heal yourself, and then show others how you did it. Moon VoC until 2:29 pm enters Gemini.
Tuesday, September 12
The Moon in Gemini makes a square to Neptune and Mercury. Use your words to heal and build lasting bonds. Anything less than that would do more harm than good.
Wednesday, September 13
We have a grand cross in the sky today taking place in the mutable signs of Gemini, Pisces, Sagittarius, and Virgo. The Moon, retrograde Neptune, Saturn, and the Sun each have something to contribute to the conversation. Communicating about how you feel is never a sign of weakness. It’s important to realize that it’s actually a sign of strength that can make your relationships more balanced. Moon VoC 1:35 pm until 4:12 pm enters Cancer.
Thursday, September 14
When the planet of intuition and emotions travels through its home sign of Cancer, it is inspired by Jupiter the planet of abundance. Somehow you have a magic touch when interacting with others today. You know exactly what to say, and your communicative style has a new sense of excitement for all that you come in contact with.
Friday, September 15
Be mindful of your thoughts and words today as Mercury and Mars oppose retrograde Neptune. It’s great to be excited about all of the changes that are occurring in your life. Be clear that you are speaking the unequivocal truth, even when it’s adorned with sprinkles of wishful thinking. Moon VoC 4:23 pm until 8:09 pm enters Leo.
Saturday, September 16
Mercury and Mars are sitting in the same seat today. Do your best to not embellish; you want to make sure that everyone involved knows any possible risks associated with taking on a potentially risky endeavor. Shine a light on integrity, as it will come in handy when everyone comes back together to compare notes.
Sunday, September 17
Mars and Mercury are still traveling together like two peas in a pod. Radical thoughts lead to radical changes, which could very well cause some to act out of character. It will become painfully obvious who knows what and who does not. Moon VoC 7:54 pm until 11:52 pm enters Virgo.
Monday, September 18
When the moon sits in Virgo at 0 degrees it makes an awkward opposition to retrograde Neptune. As we all reflect upon the events of the recent path, you could see a changing of the guards. This means that in the game of follow the leader, we could see abrupt changes that cause division yet bring clarity.
Tuesday, September 19
There’s a party going on in the latter degrees of Leo and early degrees of Virgo, when Venus, Mars, Mercury and the Moon have a powwow. The only planet invited to the party is Pluto. When this happens you know that there is a mental assessment that is taking place as Virgo looks over the books, revises and corrects all the while identifying what works and what doesn’t. Expect a major shift in power.
Wednesday, September 20
“Hello, Goodnight!” As the Sun and the Moon meet in Virgo for a New Moon at 12:29 am. At this point in the month you have a very good idea of what has been restricting you, or better yet, who has been restricting you. Blindly following others can land you in unsavory places, so make sure you do your own homework before following the next person. Moon VoC 12:30 am until 5:06 am enters Libra.
Thursday, September 21
Today you find a new way to maintain emotional balance, especially when dealing with individuals that could test your patience. It’s not necessary to rise to every occasion, yet there are times when rising to the occasion means pursuing a path that breaks down barriers to get to something that we call the truth.
Friday, September 22
As the fall equinox arrives upon us, it’s the time of decisions, decisions, decisions. That’s the temperature of the day because you have to make choices. Most people don’t like to choose because it means that you’re going to have to let something go, while hoping that whatever you have chosen will provide the satisfaction that you need. As the reality of the harvest takes hold just know that you are making the right decision based upon months and months of analysis. Moon VoC 8:04 am until 12:40 pm enters Scorpio.
Saturday, September 23
With a little bit of effort on your part, you can have an epiphany–the proverbial moment of clarity. As you unravel your visions from the past you recognize that you had some wishes that were unfulfilled. You have the power to go back, if you’d like, just like you have the power to move forward. What is it that you desire no? It’s the only thing that is worth the journey.
Sunday, September 24
The latter part of this month has been ripe with change. Today is no different. When you take the time to really evaluate your current circumstances that is when you come to understand your own innovative and, sometimes disruptive, nature. Saturn, Uranus, Mars, Mercury, Venus, and Pluto can only do so much. The secret ingredient is you, combined with a little bit of imagination and a whole lot of faith. Moon VoC 2:33 am until 11:01 pm enters Sagittarius.
Monday, September 25
The Moon and the Sun make a positive aspect to one another today. Basically they wave at one another from a distance. Knowing how to work with others to achieve the impossible is what causes you to evolve. Saturn positively aspecting retrograde Uranus says that when you are willing to make the effort, it also means that you are willing to restrict those things that cause you to want to quit.
Tuesday, September 26
With all of the turbulent aspects in the sky today you have only one choice. That choice has to be growth. These are growing pains that you are experiencing. You’re learning to live without so that you can live within.
Wednesday, September 27
The Moon comes face to face with Saturn today in Sagittarius. Instinct takes over today because your internal mantra is crying out for you to charge forward. You’ve learned a great deal while Jupiter was in Libra, and you’ll continue to do so as it makes its way towards Scorpio. If you thought that you’re creativity had escaped you just know that it hasn’t. In fact, what has happened is that others control over your creativity is what is being shed. Moon VoC 6:08 am until 11:24 am enters Capricorn.
Thursday, September 28
Emotionally grounded and strategically aware, that is what you are today.
Friday, September 29
Venus and Mars want the Moon and Pluto to think about something today. It wants you to think about patronage, it wants you to think about thoughts, and it wants you to reflect upon paralysis. Don’t be paralyzed by fear rise above it. Moon VoC 7:13 pm until 11:40 pm enters Aquarius.
Saturday, September 30
The moon at 0 degree Aquarius makes a square to retrograde Uranus. It’s times like these when we say to ourselves “ You know nothing, Jon Snow,” a statement said by a Game of Thrones character. It’s true. We know nothing about the path ahead ,yet we are willing to travel the course all the same.
The Moon Void of Course (VoC) is the time period from when the Moon makes its last aspect in one sign before moving into the next sign. The Moon is the fastest-moving planet, and it transitions from one sign into the next every 1-3 days. What that means is that the Moon is constantly in motion, it’s never retrograde; so it’s inevitable that she will connect with “something,” i.e. another planet or transit, until the moment that she doesn’t. During the moments when she doesn’t connect, we call it the Moon Void of Course. When these events occur, the best thing to do is to meditate, sit still, and listen to your higher guidance. Sitting still does not mean to physically sit still, although that can be beneficial.
