September 2014

Harvest Moon:  September 8 in Pisces, 18 degrees
New Moon:  September 24 in Libra, 01 degrees

PLUTO is DIRECT Sep 22nd:  This is GREAT for Scorpio sun signs and the area of your astrological chart ruled by Scorpio.  The energy a few days around this date will be quite intense and could create abrupt changes in the stock markets, banking facilities and anything underground i.e. tunnels, caves but also includes things like hoses, pipes, volcanos and places like Washington, D.C., New Orleans, and Milwaukee for example.

SEPTEMBER is the month the world’s karma vibration for 2014 will peak and balance, hopefully in a positive way.   
>>>PREPARE in Sep for Eclipses AND Mercury Retrograde in OCTOBER<<<
Oct 08 - Lunar Eclipse in Aries 15 degrees (powerful action energy)
Oct 23 - Solar Eclipse in Scorpio 0 degrees (Intense, passionate energy)

Mercury stations Retrograde on Oct 4th.  Starting the last week of Sep the craziness of mishaps, misunderstandings, electronic breakdowns, communication interruptions, etc will be evident. It is suggested that you wait until the last week of Oct to sign new contracts, start new jobs or projects, make long term commitments or make major purchases or start new relationships (business/personal) to avoid regrets, mistakes or misunderstandings. More about this in the Oct forecast.

Summary of September Energy

September 01 – 10
The month begins with the moon still in Scorpio moving to VOID at 11:40amET until it enters the adventure sign of Sagittarius at 1:17pmET on the 1st. On the 2nd Mercury will shift into Libra and create events involving all forms of transportation. Double check travel arrangements. On the 5th Venus will move into cautious and serving Virgo. Now is a good time to take care of personal things such as hair cuts, manicures, car detailing, cleaning out closets, etc.  With the building of energy on the 6, 7th for the full harvest moon on the 8th, be alert to unusual activities, especially on the afternoons of the 5th and 6th.  The start to September is “busy” and to Taurus, Leo and Cancer sun signs maybe a little too stressful.  The full moon on the 8th is in Pisces at a KARMA degree (16) and rules the oceans, waterways, drugs, secret enemies, wells and places of confinement of any kind to name a few. These could be headliners. This cycle ends with the moon shifting into ARIES on the evening of the 9th and brings aggressive, explosive, implusive energy unfolding on the 10th. The 10th has strong energy in the afternoon and confrontations are likely.

September 11 – 20
With the strong energy from the 10th still in the air and very active, along with a VOID moon until this evening, the 11th is a day to expect the unexpected. Be safe in all activities and avoid arguing/disagreements.  The 12th is a better day for negotiating. The energy on the 13th and 14th is erratic and involves foreign lands and cultures. Schools, especially colleges, universities, etc are highlighted. Around the 15th the energy becomes disruptive and could create changes in the earth itself, such as earthquakes. The 19th could bring an unusual meeting of the minds. If you have meetings that day, make sure you set realistic goals.  The 20th closes this cycle with easy energy during the day but it starts to shift toward evening.

September 21 – 30
This cycle begins with HIGH energy that is rather stressful. With Pluto stationing direct tomorrow, the 22nd and the Sun entering Libra –Autumn Equinox--, the energy is strong and uneven at times. The 23rd has a VOID moon all day so expect delays and the unexpected especially since there is a new moon tomorrow on the 24th.  Energy is always high around new moons.  The 25th may turn out to be quite pleasant if previous days held no heavy happenings. The 27th is intense and in the late afternoon Mercury moves out of Libra and into Scorpio.  What a difference a day makes! The 29th Venus shifts into Libra from Virgo and fills the day with the desire to travel.  The moon will be VOID all day the last day of SEP. There are NO aspects on this day. It is the ONLY day in SEP with not one aspect. Expect the unexpectecd? Enjoy the laziness? Try your luck at playing the lottery or the casino?   The choice is definitely yours this last day of SEP. Be aware, it could also bring unusual events…

September Daily

Sep 01: LABOR DAY Intense energy continues from moon in Scorpio. It shifts into VOID at 11:40amET until 1:17pmET when it gladly moves into Sagittarius. Sudden events worldwide could be taking place due to the shifting energy approaching tomorrow. Be safe and enjoy the day.

Sep 02: The moon continues in Sagittarius and brings with it the change of Mercury from Virgo to Libra. Libra tends to overthink things so be careful with the way the energy unfolds today. Cancer sun signs may need some quiet time today to calm the nerves.

Sep 03: The moon in Sagittarius shifts to VOID at 2:08pmET until 6:15pmET when it enters the stern sign of Capricorn. This is a bumpy shift of energy but settles quickly overnight.  Gemini sun signs need deep breathing exercises to handle the energy!

Sep 04: The moon in Capricorn is an excellent time to review budgets, check credit card balances and scores. It is not the greatest time to appear in court if you need compassion/mercy! People tend to be cool and aloof during this moon cycle. Love tends to be more lusty than romantic.

Sep 05: The moon stil in Capricorn shifts to VOID at 11:08amET for the afternoon. Early afternoon Venus shifts from Leo into Virgo. Romance tends to become more reserved. At 7:59pmET the moon shifts into friendly and opionated Aquarius.

Sep 06: Moon in Aquarius prompts a bit of the “crazy” energy that encourages you to do things you would not normally do. Electronics are playing a huge role in today’s energy.  Hopefully no one will lose power, etc.  Have lunch with friends or check out a new electronics show.

Sep 07: The moon is in Aquarius at the start of the day and quickly at 1:19pmET shifts into VOID for the afternoon. It moves into Pisces at 7:47pmET.  The energy is high today due to the coming full moon tomorrow. Be cautious with all activities in the afternoon and expect the unplanned to happen.

Sep 08:  Today is a HARVEST FULL MOON in PISCES at 16 degrees.  This is a karmic degree.  I pray the balance that comes from this full moon will be a postive one.  Emotions are sensitive.  Compassion is high. So is deceit and deception. Secrets are everywhere.

Sep 09: With the moon opening the day still in Pisces and with the energy from the full moon still unfolding, it might be a bit of a wishy washy morning. Sometimes, it is difficult to get going with the kind of energy I see.  At 3:09pmET, the moon moves VOID until 7:33pmET when it enters Aries. There is angry energy around early evening. Expect developing messages/events involving transportation, satellites, and underground energy to emerge.

Sep 10: The moon well into Aries brings aggressive energy.  This is a war-like atmosphere and there are numerous disruptive moments throughout the day. It is best to limit activities that have dangerous elements involved. This would include firefighters, bomb squads, knife sharperners, even surgeons should be careful. Headaches are common now as well as head injuries so be careful.

Sep 11: The moon shifted overnight into VOID and remains VOID all day until 9:17pmET when it enters the practical sign of Taurus.  During the day, delays are common as well appointment cancellations.  Expect the unexpected to happen.

Sep 12: The moon continues in dependable Taurus and helps calm down the energy from the past few days.  It is a good time to make purchases, buy real estate or maybe take a few music lessons.  Be careful with throat problems.

Sep 13: The moon opens in Taurus but moves quickly into VOID at 9:31amET giving us another VOID day.  Stick to routines, double check all appointments. Be prepared for things to change.

Sep 14: The moon shifts to Gemini at 2:26amET. The morning is rather easy but midday the energy becomes quite tense.  Secrets are likely to be exposed. Be careful of all text messaging, emails, and voice mail messages.

Sep 15: The moon is still in Gemini and adds a lot of energy to the day.  A lot can be accomplished especially in matters that involve communication or marketing. The moon enters VOID at 10:05pmET.

Sep 16: The VOID from last night continues until 11:24amET when the moon shifts into Cancer. The feeling is easy today and many will want to stay home and feel “safe”.  This is a great day to be with family.

Sep 17: The moon is still in home oriented Cancer.  There is yucky energy mid morning and again late afternoon. Overall a lot can be accomplished today.  It is a deeply emotional energy day so be sensitive to others feelings.

Sep 18: The moon will be in Cancer until 2:38pmET when it will be VOID until later tonight at 11:10pmET when it enters Leo.  The day is productive even though there are a few bumpy spots.  There are once or two blips of unexpected event energies so be tuned to the news for the latest!

Sep 19: The moon in Leo shines brightly and world leaders will be highlighted.  There is a bit of music and poetry in the air which seemingly does not belong.  Think about it. Life is like a song and dance…

Sep 20: The moon continues in Leo.  Complications where romance are concerned could pop up late in the day. Be clear about what you feel and want. Lies have a way of being exposed.  Keep the “honesty is the best policy” motto.

Sep 21: The moon entered VOID overnight and remains VOID until 11:54amET. At that time it enters the sacrificing sign of Virgo. This is the International Day of Peace. I pray that is true. The energy is even for the most part until close to midnight. With Pluto stationing to move direct, there could be unusual happenings involving volcanoes, caves, tunnels and even exposure of a corrupt situation. This is a very intense day overall.

Sep 22: AUTUM EQUINOX – The SUN ENTERS LIBRA and PLUTO STATIONS DIRECT. The moon continues in Virgo!  Today will feel energized!  Scorpio sun signs will now enjoy having their sun sign ruler in full power again.  The energy is building for the New Moon on Wednesday.

Sep 23:  The moon enters VOID early at 8:15amET and stays VOID all day until 11:59pmET when it enters Libra.  The energy is scattered today. It may be difficult to focus for any length of time.  Antsy is a word that comes to mind.

Sep 24: NEW MOON in LIBRA at 01 degree at 2:14amET.  The energy is always high around a new moon and this one is no different.  A lot can be accomplished today as Libra is a cardinal (active) air sign.  Be careful you do not over think a situation. Keep letters, notes, voice mails, texts to a minimum of words.  The less said, the better, today. Aries sun signs might not enjoy the day as much as others!

Sep 25: The moon continues in Libra. Today has a fortunate wind about it. Play the lottery, enter a raffle, try your luck here and there. Hopefully, contracts and negotiations signed today will be positive ones and last a long time.

Sep 26: The moon is in Libra until 8:39amET when it enters VOID for a short time until 10:29amET when it moves quietly into Scorpio. There is a quietness to today. People withdraw, conversations decrease and emotions are intensified. Think before speaking today.

Sep 27: The moon in Scorpio again today and is joined by MERCURY entering SCORPIO. Intuition is heightened, follow it. If you are seeking information that has been hidden from y ou, today is a good day to try again – and be successful.

Sep 28: The moon is in Scorpio and the energy is tense but low-key. A good day to fly solo or simply enjoy some alone time. The moon enters VOID at 4:31pmET and remains VOID until 6:50pmET when it enters the social sign of Sagittarius.

Sep 29: The moon in Sagittarius promotes the desire to travel, to learn, to increase knowledge of law.  With VENUS entering LIBRA today, the desire to improve is increased.  It is a good day for adventure, for exploring. Be careful with your bluntness in conversation. It could hurt someone’s feelings! The moon enters VOID at 11:29pmET until SEP 1st!

Sep 30: The last day of the month ends with the entire day with a VOID MOON. Expect the unexpected.  Have a task list ready to go when you wake as you will need a lot of push to get things accomplished today. It is a lazy day and a great way to punctuate this 7 karma month energy.  Now we move on to October and Mercury retrograde and two eclipses.  WHEW.   Enjoy today!

Eclipses in 2014
Oct 08 -  Lunar Eclipse in Aries 15 degrees (Powerful energy)
Oct 23 -  Solar Eclipse in Scorpio 0 degrees (Intense energy)

Retrograde Planets
When a planet is retrograde, its energy is weakened, misunderstood or projected in an unclear manner. The sun signs, industries, activities and so forth ruled by the retrograde planet, will feel held back, restricted, misunderstood or weakened. This is also a time when you are given an opportunity to re-do, re-evaluate these areas. Many times it brings about a better solution or happier direction.

Uranus: July 21 - Dec 21 in Aries Uranus rules the unexpected and unpredictable energies.  It rules the sign of Aquarius sun sign, electricity, automobiles, assassination attempts, earthquakes,, astrology, Bohemian, and Russia to name a few.  When it is retrograde, Uranus gives the topics/countries that it rules, time for review, reconsideration.  It also holds back some of its strength in order to allow for this.  It’s like slowing down as you approach an intersection to give you time to make sure you know which direction you want to go.  With Uranus in Aries (unexpected, impulsive), this is actually a good thing as it pulls the energy back to a more manageable level.

Neptune: June 9 - Nov 16 in Pisces Neptune rules the sign of Pisces and the house that has Pisces on the cusp if you know your chart.  Pisces is the ruler of the oceans, actors/actresses, musicians, and psychics/mediums - to name a few.  When Neptune is retrograde those things ruled by Neptune lose their forward oomph while giving us a time to review our goals and dreams. Check for possible changes.  Clear our vision.

Pluto: Apr 14 - Sep 22 in Capricorn Pluto rules Scorpio sun signs/ascendants and also the house cusp that has Scorpio on it in your natal astro chart. Pluto is the planet of transformation and transition.  It rules death and rebirth.  Even though it is no longer being called a planet, my own experience shows it is still working as before.  So, during this retrograde period, reconsider any major moves or changes you are thinking of making. Remember Pluto is often called a money bag planet as it rules big business.  So be careful with major investments of money.  Pluto delves into areas most are afraid to go and probably should not!

Void of Course Moon(VOC or VOID)
When the transiting moon makes no aspect to a transiting planet, it is considered to be VOID. During these void periods - which can last a few minutes or a few days - it is best to avoid signing sign contracts, interviewing for jobs, or setting important appointments. Why? Because appointments are usually delayed or rescheduled altogether or they do not turn out as expected. Contracts have delays or have to be re-negotiated, etc. Job interviews turn out to be non-productive or empty promises are made. If, for instance, a first interview does occur and appears positive, you may be asked to start ASAP or have to interview with additional people, etc.

I feel that during void moon energy, solutions to problems can be found. Therefore, it is an excellent time for lawyers to find loopholes in cases or uncover evidence that will turn a case in their favor. Lost items are found or returned during this energy at a higher percentage than when the moon is not void. Any computer glitches that have evaded solution can suddenly be resolved. You can be lucky and win a lottery or raffle. Keep in mind that during a VOID MOON, any activities undertaken usually take TWICE as long to accomplish!!! There is also an element of LUCK associated with this void energy...use it wisely.

One thing is for certain -- always expect the unexpected during a VOID of COURSE MOON timeframe -- good and bad -- and be prepared for delays.

Transiting Planets
If the slower moving planets connect with one of your personal planets during 2014 (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars), energy will develop to bring about a needed event or change. So, it is helpful to know if this will be happening so you can plan better and be prepared to make it a good “connection”.  Here are the slower moving planets and the signs they will energize in 2014:

Jupiter is the fastest moving of the slower planets, staying approximately a year in each sign.  At the beginning of 2014 it continues retrograde (began in Nov 2013) in the sign of Cancer.  It will return to full strength when it turns direct on March 6.  It will be at 10 degrees Cancer.  In April 2014, it will make a powerful opposing aspect to Pluto. Watch April closely for mind blowing events set off by two powerful planets (and add Uranus to the mix!) Jupiter expands things and Pluto destroys or transforms them. The signs of Cancer and Capricorn represent nurturing and sensitivity and cool caution and discipline (home family/work responsibilities). Cancer sun signs may also have experiences with the law or legal matters as Jupiter represents those topics. Pluto represents death and rebirth.  In Capricorn it works to transform government and government officials including the banking system.  The year 2014 could see reforms within government or at the least with government leaders. Jupiter moved into the sign of LEO in July shifting the spotlight to those who are world leaders, famous sports figures and anyone in the arts/entertainment industry.  This is a positive energy for LEO sun signs.  Watch inflated egos and overconfidence.

Saturn takes about 2.5 years to transit one sign. It is in Scorpio now and continues in Scorpio until December 2014 when it leaves and enters Sagittarius. Before it leaves Scorpio, it will retrograde back into the higher degrees of Scorpio for very short periods before leaving Scorpio finally in Jan 2015.  Saturn’s energy helps us better manage our talents and urges. It can bring unexpected responsibilities or even a health crisis that requires discipline and focus to overcome.  It is the COMMITMENT KING. Commitments made during a transiting aspect of Saturn to your personal planets have endurance energy initiated. Not bad for a good marriage or business partnership if all other aspects are supportive. This is the time to stay current with your medical exams especially if you are a Scorpio sun sign or ascendant OR a Taurus sun sign or ascendant. Scorpio is the sign opposite Taurus. This opposition touches the Taurus sun signs with Saturn energy also just not as intense as what Scorpio feels.  It CAN feel oppressive having Saturn in your sun sign (or opposing it), but it doesn’t have to be felt that way.  Saturn can also restrict us in some way, i.e. sprained ankle, sick, etc.  With the ability to focus and accomplish, use Saturn’s positive side to finish up projects or goals that have been set aside. Take on any added responsibilities as a learning experience that will benefit you. Hard work is usually required when Saturn is in your sign so be prepared to work hard and be rewarded accordingly. For the first half of 2014 Saturn and Jupiter are in a comfortable partnership. That will bring some “lightness” to the weight of Saturn.

Uranus in ARIES will continue transiting the sign of Aries moving from 8 degrees Aries to 16 degrees in 2014. It does retrograde during the year and in Dec 2014 it will have retrograded back to 12 degrees Aries.   If you have a planet in your astro chart at 9-16 degrees Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn, Uranus will energize that planet sometime in 2014. Libra sun signs born Oct 3 – 10 will feel this energy as an opposing force.  It is challenging but not as aggressively challenging as those born in the sign of Aries.  You could suddenly quit a job, seek a divorce, change your hair style, or even decide to change residence when this happens.  The energy of freedom loving Uranus is not predictable except to say it is unpredictable. Sudden changes, accidents, changes in beliefs, strong desire to be free, etc can all be part of this energy. Be careful in your desire to feel free, to break the rules, to make radical changes, especially if you are aged 41-43.  Remember, once the transit completes, you will be living with the consequences of your actions and decisions!  Uranus is sending kind vibes to Aquarius and Gemini but challenging the signs of Libra, Cancer, Capricorn, and of course, Aries.

Neptune in Pisces – will move from 3 degrees to 7 degrees Pisces during 2014. It will be retrograding and back to 4 degrees by Dec 2014.  It is very slow moving. Be cautious in business dealings and LOVE as Neptune energy can be evasive and deceiving you before you know it.  Neptune has a strong spiritual side and connects to the higher realms. It also rules all liquids and things like the oceans, water, floods, drugs, hospitals, jails, bodily fluids including perspiration! Perhaps if your planets are contacted by this transiting Neptune, you will find yourself returning to church, restoring your faith, being drawn to the beach, or finding that true love!  Virgo sun signs may find themselves working with Pisces sun signs or changing careers to work in a Pisces industry i.e., oil, ink, ocean liners, entertainment, singing, children, any music or acting, etc. Virgo sun signs will feel the opposing energy creating feelings of vagueness and mystery.  Enjoy this opportunity to not only dream but to also see your dreams come true.

Pluto in Capricorn- will transit 11, 12 and 13 degrees of Capricorn in 2014. Those born the first 5 days of January will feel this transit more directly. Any planet you may have in your astrological chart that is at the degrees mentioned, will feel the transformative power of Pluto. It can involve corruption, drugs, sexual desires, skin and teeth issues, government planning, the disciplining parent, and big business to name a few. The same applies to those Cancer sun signs born the first week of July; or anyone who has Cancer planets at 11, 12 or 13 degrees. Because Capricorn and Cancer are action oriented signs, Pluto’s transit will create strong desires for action, not just thinking. Capricorn creates harsh aspects to Aries and Libra but if they use the energy to accomplish and keep irritations under control, they will succeed! Pluto in Capricorn helps define economic changes that will be beneficial and strong.  Capricorn rules big business and government and government officials. These may be headliners in 2014.  The changes being made will be long lasting ones as Capricorn is cautious and responsible.  A word to the wise should be sufficient.  Virgo and Taurus – fellow earth signs of Capricorn – should find the transformations and changes, very positive and smooth.

Be blessed always!
