Moon Wisdom September 5, 2013 7:36:07 a.m. EDT Jensen Beach, FL© Chica de las Estrellas a.k.a. Amy Ford
I guess I never got over the idea that the New Year is in September. It must be because the calendar of my ancestors begins on the moon of the autumnal equinox here in the northern hemisphere. Every year I just feel like this is the time when I am supposed to break out new ideas and make changes. So, here I am doing it.
The new name for the New Moon Astrology is "Moon Wisdom" I hope you like it! The name has morphed over the years and suddenly, this just popped into my head. When you think about it, which is what the New Moon in Virgo expects of you, it really does make sense. The lunar month of the earthy maiden is all about fresh new beginnings. She loves to have us sift through and evaluate our behaviors and patterns in hopes that we can find newfound resourcefulness. Her motto is "Work smart, plan and sort what you believe is a good investment of energy."
September is when school begins and the seasons shift. Often it is a time to take a last vacation or to indulge in relaxation before the last quarter of the year. I have good news for you. September is going to be a much better financial month than this past August was. Are you smiling? I know I am.
Today the New Moon in Virgo gains sustaining power from a trine to Pluto in Capricorn. This alone is sure to create breakthroughs in consciousness for many. I can only hope it shows up in some of the software glitches I have been sustaining from recent upgrades that are more beta than finished. What I am saying is, that lately many of us have been releasing finished products when they should sit and stew a while longer. You know how soup or a pot of fresh cooked beans always tastes better if you let it cook slowly and sit to rest over night? This is what is going on with projects and ideas. The message: take your time. Let it rest a bit.
Add to this the Sextile to the Sun and Moon by the poetic giant, Jupiter in the sensitive sign of Cancer. He would love you to dash off into the next project or blow this current one up by over stuffing it until it spills all over the floor. The best advice I have is to resist the urge and just let what you have completed to this point just be for a while.
September 9 Mercury breezes into the airy sign of Libra. The symbol of Libra is a set of scales, the kind that hangs and weighs against one another. It is the only inorganic form in the zodiac. The scales represent your power of discernment. Use it this month while the messenger visits this sign. Here he is influenced by the Venusian effect of beauty and comfort. This is encouraging many of you to splurge a little either in your choice of words or the ability to recharge in silence.
Speaking of Venus, she dives deeply into to Scorpio September 9. This induces a surge of desire and a gnawing hunger for passion and pleasure. The challenge of Scorpio’s Plutonian ruled realm is that if things aren’t working we have a tendency to pile them in the yard and set them aflame. Really think this out if you suddenly feel the need to just clear things out. Simplification is good. Destruction can be regretful.
There is a kind of interesting mid-month bump in the road that forces us to face the mirror of the soul. This all occurs in the sign of the scorpion over a four-day period from September 15 to 18. The first influence is Saturn conjunct the North Node of the Moon. These two force a shakedown to your foundational core. If things are not going to work out, you will now have the evidence. The trick is to be honest and recycle all of this. If you cling to it, you will find later that letting it go was indeed the wiser choice. Lovely Venus is in close proximity to these two with a convergence on the 18th. Wherever this happens in your natal chart is in for some serious rebuilding and change. Knowing this is very helpful and sets the tone for the next few months. Call me to make an appointment and learn how to handle this: (772) 233-8229. Wish big on this event as this is the kind of star that brings hopes and dreams into fruition. I suggest you begin talking about it now to get your desires lined up with your creative energy.
Those of you who work in the medical field are going to have a busy spell September 18 to 20 when the Full Moon is in Pisces. Luna is at an exact trine angle to this conjunction September 19. If you are a creative person looking for answers I suggest a walk in the moon light September 18 while asking for guidance. Images are sure to grace your dreams this night.
The molten fires of Pluto’s forge beam a direct Sextile to the craggy mountain of Saturn September 20. These two are in mutually receptive signs meaning: they are each in the ruling sign of the other. Therefor Pluto is in Capricorn and Saturn is in Scorpio. This is structurally sound and a great time to transform the projects you have been working diligently on.
The Sun moves into Libra September 22 which marks the Equinox and the change of seasons. As I mentioned in the beginning, to me this is the New Year point. I love the energy and inspiration to refresh and start anew that this brings me each year. I hope it does the same for you as well.
Mercury the messenger begins an extended stay in Scorpio September 29. This lasts through December 4 due to an upcoming retrograde period that takes place from October 21 to November 10. During this time we are provided with a great opportunity to clean up the communication and make profound transformations in our relationships both personal and at the workplace.
I wish you a very productive month of mastery over your new projects and ideas. May they bear fruit for a bountiful harvest!
I invite you to read on for my predictions for the 12 signs.
Aries March 19/20 to April 20/21. You have no choice but to take care of each and every little detail and chore. Do your best to sort them all out and prioritize the list. You are so used to acting impulsively that the demand to slow down and really put a lot of thought and planning into each and every action can cause frustration. This process is a learning tool and is very important for your future. When you find yourself considering retreat choose to surrender to the current power-struggle instead. I suggest taking a good long timeout before setting a rash notion into effect. This will show your growth and improvement to those in authority and create a win-win in the long run.
Taurus April 20/21 to May 21/22. You have been questioning a lot lately. There is only one answer and it is that everything does not need to be incredibly complicated all the time. Pull out that reserve of patience you have hidden down deep and infuse it with constructive ideas. There is no need to knock everything down in a grand demolition. You have been working really hard on everything. Take your time and sift through all levels. When you feel you are getting close to a combustive explosion simply excuse yourself. Your romantic side is suffering a tendency to over compensate. Do everything you can to stay within the boundaries of reality in relationships.
Gemini May 21/22 to June 21/22. Your sense of family reaches far beyond the boundaries of DNA. Do to the sheer volume of people you are answering to, you must do the best you can with the seemingly endless list of chores and assignments. Now is a good time to put on your multi-colored-dream-coat and listen to the messages of the cosmos while strolling under the stars. Magical signs and guidance are yours for the asking. The tricky part is you must keep this a secret for the remainder of the month until the next New Moon. This is the deciding making or breaking point. I believe in you, keep those lips locked.
Cancer June 22/23 to July 22/23. An incredible opportunity is coming your way. Remind yourself that you are deserving of all positive offers, and choose to respond with a resounding yes. Just after this, a new potential business partner appears. Riding on these currents is a question being asked deep within your soul. The answer for this is also yes. You are deserving of everything good. Carefully evaluate all of the offers and make any necessary changes before signing final agreements. Then go ahead and infuse all of these positive vibrations into your primary relationships. I urge you to go for it! If you choose to retreat now, it causes great regret later.
Leo July 22/23 to August 23/24. Reevaluate your entire financial system. Within the superstructure you find many loopholes that ultimately lead you to several better solutions. Though this may all seem like an obstacle in the road at first, you find many better solutions. When you begin to feel fussy, take some time for solitude and recharge. This helps to hone your ideas for the big presentation that is coming up. It also gives you the quiet space you need to pay even closer attention to all of the details. Your dream career is becoming a reality, good for you!
Virgo August 23/24 to September 23/24. I promise, you are being as clear and concise as you can possibly be. It is no fault of yours that others are not reading you loud and clear. Be gentle with yourself and do not become frustrated when they are not getting your point. Continue to socialize as this helps you maintain your absolute best and reminds you that there are people who truly love and understand you. Giving to those in need helps you to stay positive. Continue with all activities that bring you a good sense of balance. Enjoy as you celebrate the beginning of a great new year!
Libra September 23/24 to October 23/24. The best plan to attract others is to offer the parts of yourself that you like the most. Before you can jump into any new project you must complete all the little details of the previous ones. You experience a series of twists and turns this month with confusions and delusions tucked into the corners. Take care to not become stuck in a mess at home. Keep your head up through the challenges and be extra grateful for all sweet moments. When a difficult decision presents itself, back up in order to gain better perspective and remember that the choice is in fact easy. Do whatever it takes to keep conflicts from collapsing your plans. Remember: what we want is guarded by our stubbornness and fears so, simply dissolve them!
Scorpio October 23/24 to November 22/23. The seeming wintery solitude is about to end. This has nothing to do with climate and everything to do with emotional weather. The best way to offer a warm welcome is to clean up the past. Nothing says "I’m ready" like a clear empty space. This must occur at all levels: physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. When a tree is slow to bear its fruit, the sweetness is always well worth the wait. This is so with all of your current projects. Be extra patient and enjoy the process. Continue to walk your talk and watch as your creativity blossoms. Let things happen rather than trying to make them happen.
Sagittarius November 22/23 to December 21/22. Whittle away steadily at the work load and pay close attention to all of the tiny details. This in turn provides you with a huge payoff and career boost. Even though you could easily be your own boss, approach all tasks with a beginner’s mind. You are about to learn some very useful new tricks and find deeper satisfaction in your work. An added bonus is the huge pile soon becomes a very manageable little stack. Remember you are the only one you can truly depend on. Stop trying to place this on others. Find a way to have quiet contemplation time. This recharges your senses and helps you to be even stronger in front of others.
Capricorn December 21/22 to January 20/21. If the bar is set too high, how can you possibly reach it? Success is not always about over achieving. You are quite accomplished; there is no doubt about this. When will you begin to see it? Stop pushing forward and go through a couple weeks of reevaluation in order to be grateful. The result is a dream encounter that ups your level of self-esteem. When you experience this, take notice of what synchronicity is. Then mark this down for the future and place it in the column entitled, new belief system.
Aquarius January 20/21 to February 18/19. Be extra kind when you are asked to critique and evaluate the work of others. There is a difference between constructive feedback and inappropriate remarks. Please choose the high road. Quickly identify potential pressures and choose to withdraw into peaceful solitude. Your wishes and dreams are better infused with stillness and meditation than with frantic pushing and doing. Allow previously unnoticed packaging to inspire you. Do everything you can to keep things simple. Unexpected accolades are well deserved. Receive them graciously while riding the crest of this positive wave.
Pisces February 18/19 to March 19/20. Negotiations and communications in all relationships are improving. Pitch your new ideas and watch as they are all accepted. When asked to research facts, triple check them for accuracy. If you desire a new relationship or spice for an existing one, be open to new flavors. Though the choices are foreign, you find that you like the new tastes. Dedicate yourself to an original artistic and creative project. You are able to dive deeper and produce so much more than you have in many years. Enjoy this flood of inspiration..
