Astrology Transits September 2023 – Harvest

“What are you planting today to harvest tomorrow?”— Lailah Gifty Akita

There is often a feeling of melancholy when the Sun moves into Virgo. The days are gradually become shorter and shorter and our attention turns to all those tasks, connections and communications unsaid or not completed during the summer. It is time for the harvest, both literally and figuratively. Now is an opportune time to review the last four months. Give yourself credit for what has been accomplished and make plans for the next four months.

Four planets change motion between August 23 and September 16. Mercury and Uranus retrograde indicate that things may not turn out exactly as expected. Clear communication is needed (Mercury retrograde) as is the ability to go with the flow (Uranus retrograde). Events are changeable and not easily controlled. Uranus brings surprises, inspiration and breakthroughs. Tune into the positive energy by letting go of fixed ideas and controlling tendencies. Here is a quick summary of the retrograde planets from May 11 until the end of January 2024.

  • Venus Retrograde: From July 23 to September 4.
  • Mercury Retrograde: From August 24 to September 16.
  • Pluto Retrograde: From May 11 to October 22.
  • Saturn Retrograde: From June 18 to November 4.
  • Uranus Retrograde From August 30 to January 28, 2024
  • Neptune Retrograde: From July 1 to December 6.
  • Jupiter Retrograde: From September 5 to December 31.

 

August 30: Uranus Turns Retrograde at 23 Degrees Taurus. Uranus is retrograde in Taurus until January 28, 2004. Planets move closer to the Sun when retrograde so their effects become stronger. Uranus is the planet of change and sudden reversals. The stock market has fluctuated wildly with Uranus in Taurus. Such stock market swings may intensify when Uranus is retrograde. It is best not to panic on downturns or become overly optimistic on upturns. It’s just Uranus doing its thing.

 

September 1: Mars Quincunx Saturn at 3 Degrees Libra/Pisces. Adjustments must be made when a planet is in a quincunx aspect. Mars quincunx Saturn is perhaps more challenging than most quincunx aspects. Mars wants action and it wants it now. Saturn wants to use a slower, more conservative, more thought-out approach. When the signs of Libra and Pisces are involved, it is even more problematic. Libra has a hard time making decisions. Pisces often doesn’t know why a decision has to be made at all. Put off major decisions until after September 4, when Mercury trine Jupiter makes decision making much easier.

 

September 4: Mercury Trine Jupiter at 15 Degrees Virgo/Taurus. Words flow and optimism is high when Mercury is trine Jupiter. Mercury trine Jupiter is especially conductive to handling money and business communication.

 

September 4: Venus Turns Direct at 12 Degrees Leo. Venus direct in Leo is a signal to move ahead with relationship and financial matters (Venus). However, if you happen to be in a challenging relationship,, practice self-love when making such relationship decisions; especially if you have been sacrificing yourself to keep the relationship going.

 

September 5: Jupiter Turns Retrograde at 15 Degrees Taurus. Jupiter is retrograde in Taurus until January 1, 2024. Use Jupiter retrograde in Taurus to reflect on your values, goals and relationships. Ask yourself: “Am I living my life in a way that aligns with my core values?” “What role does money and security play in my life?”

Because Uranus is also transiting retrograde in Taurus, there may be more fluctuations in money and relationship matters than usual. Use this time to put yourself on a secure financial foundation (Taurus). The fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) will especially feel this energy.

 

September 8: Sun Trine Jupiter at 15 Degrees Virgo/Taurus. Sun trine Jupiter brings a short-lived, but welcome, sense of feeling good about yourself, optimism, and harmony. Because Sun and Jupiter are both in earth signs there is an added bonus of feeling grounded. Enjoy.

 

September 8: Mars at 7 Libra Sesiquiquadrate Uranus at 23 Degrees Taurus. Be careful of accidents, confrontational people and generally an unexpected atmosphere of chaos, anger, tension and ego conflicts. Use this aspect positively by taking steps to liberate yourself from unwanted conditions. Those of you with planets in Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius and Taurus will feel this energy the most.

 

September 14:  New Moon at 22 Degrees Virgo. Sun and Moon (New Moon) Trine Uranus at 22 Degrees Taurus. The New Moon in Virgo Trine Uranus is right in step with this month’s “Harvest” theme. Look back over the summer and see where adjustments need to be made (quincunx aspects). Set your intentions for the month, and even the year, and release them into the ethers. Retrograde Jupiter and Uranus in a wide conjunction trine the New Moon urges you to: “Let go and trust.” Jupiter brings abundance and Uranus brings sudden breakthroughs. Your wishes can manifest when the time is right.

September 15: Sun Trine Uranus at 22 Degrees Virgo/Taurus. Try something new and get moving when the Sun is trine Uranus. A general feeling of restlessness abounds, which requires action and expanding your outlook and horizons. This would be an excellent time to take up a new study that challenges your mind and fixed ideas. Stay tuned for more information on a Zoom astrology class that I am putting together.

 

September 16: Mercury Turns Direct. We all breathe a sigh of relief when Mercury turns direct. Time to take action on all those things you wanted to do when Mercury was retrograde.

 

September 17: Venus Square Jupiter at 15 Degrees Leo/Taurus.  Venus square Jupiter is traditionally a transit of expansion, optimism and general well -being. Relationships are easier now, and finances improve. Avoid overspending when Venus is square Jupiter.

 

September 19: Sun Opposition Neptune at 26 Degrees Virgo/Pisces. Pluto at 27 degrees Capricorn. It’s best not to engage in important conversations now. Mercury is still in its retrograde direct shadow period and confusion and delusion reign when the Sun is opposition Neptune. Pluto trine the Sun brings out aggression and the need to control. Instead, engage in deep introspection (Pluto) and spiritual clearing practices (Neptune).

 

September 19: Mars Quincunx Jupiter at 15 Degrees Libra/Taurus. Mars quincunx Jupiter spells frustration. Mars is screaming that it wants action and it wants it now. It may show a fit of anger in the process. Jupiter expands whatever it touches, so it is only adding fuel to the flame. Planets in quincunx aspect cannot see or hear each other so it becomes challenging to resolve conflicts.

 

September 21: Sun Trine Pluto at 28 Degrees Virgo/Capricorn.  Sun trine Pluto in earth signs is excellent for accomplishment. You are motivated, focused and grounded.

 

September 23: Sun Enters Libra. The overall focus is now on relationship matters and the need for more balance in your life.

 

September 24: Sun Quincunx Saturn at 1 Degrees Libra/Pisces. When the Sun is quincunx Saturn, the challenge is to make an adjustment (quincunx) regarding your ego needs (Sun) and your tendency to denigrate and unfairly criticize yourself (Saturn). We all tend to criticize ourselves more when the Sun is in Libra. Instead, acknowledge your faults, but show compassion and love for yourself.

 

September 25: Mercury Trine Jupiter at 14 Degrees Virgo/Jupiter. I love how the planets mix the challenging energy with the easy, “coasting” energy. Mercury trine Jupiter is one of those coasting aspects where communication (Mercury) flows easily (trine with Jupiter) and a general feeling of optimism and well-being abounds (Jupiter). Retrograde Jupiter asks us to transmute past fears and worries into a more positive vibe.

 

September 27: Mercury Quincunx Chiron at 18 Degrees Virgo/Aries. Old wounds come up for examination when Mercury is quincunx Chiron. Today can bring painful events and worries into focus. Be kind to yourself and others.

 

September 29: Full Moon at 6 Degrees Aries.  This Full Moon in Aries in opposition to the Sun in Libra speaks to partnership and relationship matters. Ask yourself: “Who am I in relationship to others in my life?” “How can I find a balance between my needs and the needs of others?”

Venus square Uranus brings a need for freedom, excitement and change, which can lead to problems in romantic relationships. Instead, Find something new and exciting to do. Or learn about some weird or unusual phenomena (UFOs, Sasquatch, astrology, dowsing?).  Enjoy experimenting with new clothing styles and colors. Venus square Uranus is excellent for updating and refreshing your image.

September 30:  Mercury Trine Uranus at 22 Degrees Virgo/Taurus. Restlessness and a need for mental stimulation are hallmarks of Mercury trine Uranus. Read a book that requires thought about an unusual subject or watch a mind-expanding documentary.

 

STAY TUNED FOR UPCOMING ASTROLOGY CLASSES.-  I plan to teach two classes some time in the fall:

  • a beginning astrology class and
  • an intermediate astrology class where we can get together and learn new techniques, while also practicing reading charts.

Uranus would love to have you participate, since Uranus rules astrology.
