The September 1st new moon brings a solar eclipse at 9 degrees Virgo. This is an especially intense period and can bring mix-up and a scandal to light. Pass on starting something new until Mercury turns direct on the 21st.
The September 16th full moon brings a lunar eclipse at 24 degrees Pisces. This is a very dangerous and difficult full moon because it gets in the way of peace. The sharp Mars square is in the middle of this energy, bringing overly forceful and destructive behavior that can indicate an increase in hostilities at home or abroad. It’s a test to see if you can adapt and adjust.
The September 30th new moon brings a blue moon at 8 degrees Libra. There are rewards in store over the next six weeks, providing you put your nose to the grindstone. Time for peaceful new beginnings that bring us love, peace and harmony.
Mercury continues retrograde through September 21.
The October 16th full moon in Aries brings highly innovative scientific and technological discoveries. This energy is particularly interesting because it occurs just before the US presidential election and can throw an unexpected monkey wrench into the works (so appropriate in the Year of the Monkey). This augurs a general sense of disruption.
The October 30th new moon in Scorpio brings endings and new beginnings. This disruptive energy puts a damper on freedom in love, sports and travel. With its dark intensity, this new moon is a perfect lead-in to Halloween festivities.
