Get Organised, Meditate
‘Skyvibe’ Astrology Forecast for September 2021
By Krishna Dodds
Spring is upon us here in the Southern Hemisphere.
This is my favourite time of the year; as not only does the weather start to warm up, but there is also that magical feeling of newness in the air.
Regardless of where you are in the world, September brings the second equinox of the year. This is when there will be exactly 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness-bringing the themes of Libra into play.
Balance will very much be a keyword throughout September. A very welcome reprieve after the chaos of the last few months, year, or years.
September kicks off with a New Moon in the sign of Virgo.
Virgo is a mutable Earth sign and offers the perfect encouragement to plant new seeds of growth.
Virgo rules the 6th house of health and wellbeing in astrology and will motivate us to create daily rituals that support us on a holistic level.
What we put into place on a daily level can support us during times of crisis. Whether it’s having ten minutes to ourselves before the day starts, meditating, drinking our favourite hot beverage or journaling; it’s important that we lay down foundations to help us build healthier habits.
With Mars also in the sign of Virgo, we will have a drive to start new projects, declutter, and attend to any of our routines that we have let slide-such as tidying the house, exercising, getting rid of old clothes, furniture etc…
This is an ideal time to get organised and make lists regarding what needs to be done. Virgo does like to write down a thing or two!
Our minds may be a little overwrought with all the mercurial stimulus, so it’s important for mental and emotional wellbeing to create a sanctuary of inner peace.
This can be achieved by spending time in nature, engaging in a candle meditation, yoga, tai chi, binaural beats etc… The list is as endless as you are. Find something that aligns with you and go for it!
We will want to engage in deeper connections when Venus moves into Scorpio on September 11th.
Venus in Scorpio is not interested in the superficial and will want to develop stronger links to those of a similar nature.
Venus in Scorpio thrives on intense and in-depth ways of relating and will want to bond through digging deeply into the hearts, minds, and souls of others.
This is a very passionate placement and may help to spice up any areas of your love life that has been lagging.
Keep an eye on the green-eyed monster and a tendency to be obsessive.
The Moon reaches her peak in the dreamy sign of Pisces on September 21st. Continuing with the theme of equilibrium, the Pisces Full Moon reminds us to balance our spiritual and practical selves, so that the prompts we receive from the universe and our inner wisdom can be moulded into something feasible on the physical plane.
This can be something as simple as creating the space for a daily meditation practice.
Pisces is the final sign of the zodiac, and therefore indicates that this Full Moon is bringing finality on some level.
Pisces ruler Neptune encourages us to surrender, and during this lunar cycle we may very well find that something needs to be released so that we can start anew.
Pisces is highly intuitive, so it will pay to trust your felt senses. Dreaming may also be strong and offer guidance.
The Pisces ruled 12th house can hold a lot of our hidden fears, so we may be confronted with our past and laying to rest anything that no longer holds a space in our present world.
Pisces is a water sign, so emotions may be super heightened throughout this phase. Release in a way that supports you, and know that water such as tears, baths, waterfalls, and other bodies of water will be your strongest ally throughout this time.
The Libra energy starts to light up with the move of Mars into Libra on the 15th, and the Sun in Libra on the 23rd.
The combination of the Sun and action planet Mars will direct our attention to the relationship area of our charts.
We will find during this period that our most important interpersonal connections will be in the spotlight, and we will be driven to improve and bring balance to our relationships, while also negotiating our wants and needs vs the other’s wants and needs.
There is a little glitch though. The third and final Mercury retrograde of the year begins on September 28th. The shadow phase of the retrograde period starts around September 8th.
This can throw a spanner into the works regarding communication and can often herald the return of issues that haven’t been fully resolved.
Take this time to get clear about what you want and what you would like to lay to rest once and for all.
Reminiscing about an old love throughout this period may be a strong possibility, yet we also need to look at what happened with that person and why we are no longer with them. It’s very easy to romanticise something in our minds-especially when we think our current circumstances may be less than desirable.
I see this as a time to resolve an issue and renegotiate the terms of the partnership, connection etc…, or to say goodbye once and for all.
You will get your answers throughout this period either way.
The Mercury retrogrades throughout the year have been geared towards rethinking our connection to love and money.
Both Mercury and Venus were at the same degree at the beginning of the retrograde period at the end of May, and the upcoming retrograde is in Venus ruled Libra.
Take this time to reflect upon where you’re going (both romantically and financially), how you want to get there, and who you want to get there with-if anyone.
September is offering an abundance of opportunity to get in touch with our innermost selves and bring balance to those parts of our worlds that have been see-sawing.
It’s through the bravery of confronting what needs to be resolved that we find true peace and harmony.
May you journey well and find your balance.
