September is when the Sun transits through the Earth element of Virgo and the Air element of Libra. This month begins with Mercury still retrograde until September 12th. It’s that time again to get the kids back in school and resume our more predictable schedules. Mercury and the Sun are in Virgo so the duties and details of life may be taking up a lot of time. This Mercury cycle will bring up issues regarding pets, co-workers, employment, health concerns, transportation, being of service, and communication. Patience is the key word during a Mercury retrograde cycle. I look at all the typical Mercury retrograde occurrences I’ve experienced in the last couple of weeks, and I’ve had plenty this cycle, and just smile knowing it’s all part of the plan!
This month the planets are giving us a little respite from the intense summer energy we’ve experienced. Take a breather and get your bearings so when it’s time to get back in the fray of life you will have the energy to tackle all that is put before you.
Check out the following important dates to put on your calendar:
September 8th – Venus (love, money & beauty) enters the sign of Scorpio (intensity, power & control)
September 8th – New Moon in Virgo – A New Moon represents new beginnings and setting intentions for the coming months. This is also a time when you may need to let something go to make room for the new and improved coming into your life. For Virgos, this is your one new moon of the year so you may want to set time aside to make a plan for the coming year. What do you want to see for the rest of 2010? Write it down and then take action during the coming months to make it happen. Signs most affected by this new moon will be Virgo, Pisces, Gemini & Sagittarius.
