9/9 ~ Venus Enters SCORPIO (until 10/31 and again: 12/2 – 1/7):
Venus is warming up for her Retrograde, which she does every 18-months and this time, it will be in Scorpio on 10/5. I did some research and it was the years 1962-2002 that most of us have lived through, with Venus Retrograding through Scorpio only. 2010 brought the first time it Retrograded in Scorpio and went Direct in Libra, bringing in this dual lesson going forward, 2010-2058 (when it will shift to all Libra). So every 8-years, going forward, Venus will extend her stay in this area of your chart, stimulating any planets you have there as well. Theoretically, we have been through the deep Scorpio excavation of old values & priorities over the last several cycles. Now, the point of the overlap suggests that we are moving toward mastery of Libra balance and equality, beauty and harmony ~ at a Soul level.
Venus Retrogrades every 18-months, which means that our Values and Priorities shift, in small ways, on a fairly regular basis, but in huge ways every 8-years. Getting a rhythm to this, internally, will help you flow with your own personal evolution with far less fear or anxiety and more trust in the natural order of things, which includes your own natural evolution.
If you’d like to know more, please join us for next week’s FREE TeleCircle and there is a complete article HERE that includes some valuable quick-reference lists and much more. I’m also hosting an *OPEN House* – which means, I will do TWO FREE TeleCircles to introduce this new cycle, one on THUR/Sept 20th and the other will tentatively be held THUR/Oct 4th. This will give everyone enough time to decide if they want to commit and me enough time to do all the Readings & create the Custom Guides in time to begin by Oct 26th.

9/9 ~ VIRGO New Moon:
… comes every year and presents us with an opportunity to reboot the *System* ~ which usually entails creating a whole new routine as well. Virgo-time supports integrating all that you have recently learned about your core essential nature (Leo), into a new routine and creating a completely new system for living, that will support you better in the here & now. It’s time to digest, assimilate & integrate the last 9-months specifically.
We are coming out of the Fixed energy of Leo, which has activated both the need to stabilize certain things, as well as permanently release certain things. There is some aspect of Self that needs to be released or transformed so that your life can actually work, in the physical reality you’re currently living. That said, no matter how bad it is, change really is only one decision and a renewed commitment away. Virgo energy helps us process & assimilate all that has completed/died/left/ended and make the necessary arrangements for new life to come in and thrive. Think: Nesting – in the sense that you are preparing space for something new in your life. But rather than the new life itself, it is more about how this new life/energy/direction is going to actually work into your natural rhythm & daily routine.
This annual dose of Virgo Medicine will help you heal aspect(s) of Self that will enable you to be in a better position to take full advantage of the coming opportunities in Libra. That said, because we are on the other side of the Eclipses, you can use this month to restore your energy, replenish your Self, tend to your health & fitness, and create a daily practice that supports your current goals & aspirations. If you are resistant to doing whatever it takes to strengthen that trust within (your intuition), just note that the road will be that much more challenging for you. If you resist change and seek to control anything or anyone outside of Self, you are in for a bumpy & painful ride. If you want things to “go back“, you will be disappointed. So rather than resist the changes disrupting your life at this time, try silence, deep breaths, and intuitive, heart-centered decision-making. Use the earthy, practical energy of Virgo to direct the current powerful flow of energy, get present to here & now and take things one step at a time.
9/11 ~ Sun (core Self) ~sextile~ Jupiter (optimism):
This energy is sometimes considered “lucky” but the success you achieve under this influence, is more likely due to a positive outlook and clear vision of who you are and what you want. Your life is expanding, your self-understanding is deepening and it will be easier to be around other people of higher consciousness, improving things and creating opportunities that benefit a larger number of people. There is a healthy dose of optimism around some grand plan, and things are moving, but make sure to do the foundation work to support this larger vision as it manifests in reality. If you are a teacher/guide/leader of any sort, this energy supports your group efforts, so giving workshops, seminars or new classes is totally supported and will benefit you, while serving others.
9/11 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~trine~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
This energy makes you want to get things done, by any means necessary and you may tend to come on a little strong – but it’s all good. The work you want to do, is work that needs to be done and in doing it and facing things head-on, you will gain insights about your Self that fortify your foundation so that your life can evolve to the next level organically. This intense and powerful energy is transformative in nature and will provoke you to think deeply about your life; what you need, desire and deserve. You may find that some aspects of your life need to be reformed or released – go for it – this energy makes reform and release easier than usual. It’s a good time to make an impression or an impact on others, but be sure to keep it on the Highest level possible. Any actions or statements used to manipulate others for selfish gain can/will backfire on you in a big way. This is a positive, uplifting, transformative energy – use it as such to clear the debris and create the life you were born to live.
9/12 ~ Jupiter (Your Truth & Story) ~sextile~ Pluto (Purification & Transformation): (3 of 3: 1/15 ~4/14 ~ 9/12)
This energy brings expansion & regeneration, allowing you to gain serious traction and get big things done. On a personal level, your Truth & Story is due for a renewal. You’ve grown & evolved, your life has changed & your consciousness has expanded in recent years and these two planets can assist you in making great strides, in a short amount of time. This is concentrated growth & development with incredible support for overall integrity. Robert Hand says, “This combination symbolizes regeneration to a higher plane of existence” on many levels. So this could also usher in a renewed sense of deep faith in yourself, life and your process. Because Jupiter expands your consciousness, this activation can stimulate a spiritual rebirth, as well as a literal one (improved environment). This is when you learn (or begin to *know*) something that utterly changes you, on a Soul level, and you are never the same. So you can also look for your Story to evolve to its natural next level, as your awareness is expanded and you cannot go back (read: you can’t un-know what you know). This is an opportunity for two major energies, a social planet (Jupiter) and a collective planet (Pluto), to come together in a positive, effective way. Ultimately, this activation will affect you and those around you because Jupiter makes things bigger and Pluto permanently changes things. So if you’re ready for big (and permanent) change, these two support you and your efforts.
9/12 ~ Venus (values) ~oppose~ Uranus (freedom):
(1 of 3: 9/12 ~ 10/31 ~ 11/30)
Any time Uranus is involved, it becomes the “wild card” and hard to predict how things will unfold, but right now there is a push-pull between your apparent values and your unique individual self. Venus also represents relationships, so it may become obvious which ones have grown stale and need an infusion of excitement or renewal. You may meet some unusual people or have something unusual happen in an established relationship, thanks to Uranus. It is not necessarily a “good/bad” thing, as much as an unpredictable shift or sudden awareness, which shakes up the status quo or regular routine and thus may require some compromise & conscious integration. This energy works beautifully if your personal Truth and values are in alignment. It can and will be very disruptive if they are not. Be open and flexible, while looking for the win/win situation for all involved.
9/12 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Saturn (responsibility):
(1 of 3: 9/12 ~ 10/24 ~ 12/16)
This energy has to do with your obligations within the context of relationships. They are not difficult obligations (in this case) but more emphasis is placed on enjoying serving those you love. This is also what I would call the “keep it real” energy, regarding relationships. This energy makes you want to really sit down and define your terms within your relationships (which I am a total advocate of). It’s really hard to grow to the next level when each person is not clear on what the other expects. Of course, this starts with you knowing what you want/don’t want and what you are willing to compromise about so you can articulate that clearly.
*Note that Venus is working with Saturn & Uranus during this extended stay (retro) giving a rare opportunity to consciously co-create (three times over) renewal between the reality and the potential in both your relationships & finances. This is an opportunity to cultivate more personal integrity, authenticity & freedom, if you can be fully responsible & self-sustained. Either way, her retrograde process is going to illuminate what needs renewal and by the new year, you should be on a whole new foundation.

9/13 ~ Mercury (lower mind) ~oppose~ Neptune (Higher mind):
This energy requires us to balance the Higher and lower mind. Some sensitive souls will feel bombarded by energies from all sides and it may feel like information-overload, which can be very stressful. The best use of this transit is meditation, intentional solitude. Try not to make important decisions or commitments for a week or so. Communication with others is challenged, another reason to only communicate with your Higher Self – or at least check in more often this week! Don’t believe everything you read or hear. Allow information to flow at a comfortable pace and wait for the energy to shift before making any decisions based on the information gathered. Some will access the necessary clarity for furthering their vision – others’ vision will be blurred and just out of reach, thanks to Neptune.
9/15 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~trine~ Pluto (rebirth & transformation):
This activation makes any deep delving within easier and more fruitful. It encourages you to ask the deeper questions, clarify your true feelings and trust your intuitive knowing, all of which are indicating that something has to die so that some other aspect of your consciousness or Being can live. You are supported to explore your inner SoulSelf, sort through recently gathered information and try to understand better what your own natural process really is. It is best to be alone for such research. Take a day or a weekend and grab your most powerful books & music and get somewhere beautiful if you can, if not, then your bedroom will do just as well – and dig deep! You are finally ready for a deeper, raw truth, and you will be transformed by what you learn. If you must communicate with others, plan on that being deep as well, so best to talk to a trusted advisor or wise elder. Nothing superficial today. The only warning with this energy is not to become obsessive about one particular idea – and certainly don’t try to force any ideas on others. If you feel the deep need to focus on one particular thing, that is fine but try to keep some perspective or write down all your revelations so you can reflect on them at a later time when you can be more objective and prioritize better.
