Heads up!  The planets are going to be busy until October 8th!

Here's the quick run-down of the most significant events happening over the next month...

Sunday, September 13th:  Partial Solar Eclipse at 20 degrees Virgo: Venus and Mars still conjunct in Romantic Leo. Mercury, Virgo's ruling planet, will be in Libra approaching an opposition to Uranus. The primary energies of this eclipse to be uncovered: Sudden insights into communication with others, how communication affects relationships, and balancing romance, recreation and fun with your practical lives.

Thursday, September 18th: Mercury Stations Retrograde at 15 degrees Libra: Mercury retrograde in Libra is about communicating fairly, as well as listening to what is being said. The Sabian Symbol associated with this degree of Libra is about taking responsibility for loss, rebuilding.  It's about letting go of innocence and naivete. The moon will be in Scorpio that day, so it might be a good idea to think twice before you speak.  Emotions could be intense that day.  Best to meditate and breathe through it, practice "non-re-activeness".  Saturn also leaves Scorpio on this day, not to return there for at least 28 years.  It enters Sagittarius, which is the energy of realistic optimism. 

Wednesday, September 23rd: Autumn arrives as the Sun enters the sign of Libra on this auspicious day!  Night and Day are equal, and we are asked to find balance in our lives.  The moon in Aquarius and Saturn in Sagittarius are in harmony with the Sun's energy that day, and will bring a spark of optimism, steadiness an open-mindedness to the beginning of this season.

Sunday, September 27th: Total Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 4 degrees Aries/Libra:  Full Moon Eclipses usually uncover things which were previously unknown  Eclipses give us information and "more pieces to the puzzle" which we usually need before taking the next step.  Eclipses on the Aries/Libra axis focus on "Me versus You", independence vs. relationships, and the importance of knowing how to relate and interact with others, without giving up our personal power.  This energy teaches us how to hold onto our individual selves, and how to assert our needs, while still respecting the needs, personal power and rights of others.
