Mer­cury ret­ro­grades on Septem­ber 17th through Oc­to­ber 9th.

The Septem­ber 13th new moon in Virgo brings a par­tial so­lar eclipse at 20 de­grees and is con­sid­ered to be highly stress­ful. In the sign of Virgo, it rep­re­sents over­work and health con­cerns. This is a time to avoid stress and surgery if at all pos­si­ble. Make your plans to start some­thing new, but wait at least a week af­ter the eclipse to be­gin.

The Septem­ber 27th full moon in Aries brings a to­tal lu­nar eclipse at 4 de­grees. This is an ex­tra spe­cial time. It’s a larger-than-life su­per­moon as well as a to­tal lu­nar eclipse. This un­usual com­bi­na­tion brings two spe­cial ef­fects: the first is that the moon ap­pears to be big­ger than usual, and the sec­ond is the grav­i­ta­tional forces it brings. With 50 per­cent stronger forces, ex­pect flood­ing, storms, high tides and se­ri­ous hur­ri­canes. Those with birthdays at this time—five days be­fore and five days af­ter—will feel the ef­fect on one-to-one re­la­tion­ships.

The Oc­to­ber 12th new moon in Libra brings a time to start over again. This moon op­poses Uranus in Aries, sig­nal­ing a time to find new ways of mak­ing re­la­tion­ships work, be it busi­ness, online or per­sonal. It’s also a time to meet new peo­ple.

The Oc­to­ber 27th full moon in Taurus brings a two-week time pe­riod to bring things to com­ple­tion. Time for wind­ing down projects and re­cy­cling or get­ting rid of sit­u­a­tions that no longer ben­e­fit your life. Also, it’s a time when hid­den mat­ters come to the sur­face.
