September 2016 Astrology Transits and September 1, 2016 Eclipse Newsletter

Don’t let the agony, regret, or fog of yesterday blind you to the fact that each new day carries with it a plethora of opportunities to move your life into the right direction.Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

We are being bombarded by an excess of planetary energy during the month of September. This excessive energy has the potential to leave you feeling anxious and confused. However, if you do the work required by this eclipse, it promises to clear out the cobwebs and to eventually bring greater clarity. The fog and confusion will clear and a new focus will move in by the first week in October. Here is a quick summary of the major September transits.

  • Mercury retrograde in Virgo until September 22nd.
  • Saturn at 10 degrees Sagittarius conjunct Mars at 14 degrees Sagittarius.
  • Saturn and Mars square Neptune and the South Node in Pisces.
  • New Moon Solar eclipse at 9 degrees Virgo on September 1. The Sun, Moon and Nodes are square Saturn/Mars and oppose Neptune.
  • Full Moon Lunar eclipse at 24 degrees Pisces/Virgo on September 16

Those of you with the Sun, Moon and personal planets in the mutable signs (Virgo, Pisces, Sagittarius and Gemini) will feel the effects of the September eclipses the most strongly.

Eclipses shake things up and often have the theme of letting go of something that is holding you back and then moving toward a new (and better) reality. The first half of September moves things that have been brewing all year into a crisis point:

  • You feel the urge to take action and a new direction feels both liberating and totally scary.
  • You want to take action, but you feel stuck and confused.
  • You ask: What action? And how can I take any action when I feel so stuck?

It is best to realize that this is a very unstable, unsettling period. If possible, put off making major decisions until early October when clarity returns. Use this time to let go of limiting beliefs, people and circumstances. In October you can begin to take baby steps toward a new reality. The way will open up as you move along.

If you must take immediate action, do so thoughtfully and responsibly and avoid impulsive actions and making rash decisions. Ask yourself: “What will be accomplished by acting immediately without appropriate thought? Would my time be better spent laying a firm foundation under my new plans and desires?”

Meanwhile, let go of wishful thinking (Neptune) and view your options in the cold, hard light of reality (Saturn). Use your intuition (Neptune and Pisces) to become more clear about what you should let go of and what you should carefully build on (Saturn). Make sure that the decisions you make are yours. Banish the Neptunian tendency to internalize what someone else wants for you. Let go of old feelings of indebtedness, guilt and martyrdom.

The September 2016 eclipses are truly a chance to let go of what is no longer working and to carefully and responsibly (Saturn) move toward those things that will be more in tune with your heart’s desire (Moon). Not easy, but necessary for a happier future.
