This is an amazing month for you, Libra, partaking in both inner and outer concerns. Your intuition is strong and it pays when you can completely tune in. Right from the very first day you are very much drawn to interior realities, subtle in their presence, which you ignore to your peril. Like the underwater portion of an iceberg, what exists below the surface layers of your psyche packs the majority of the punch, so that better understanding these secret realms within you means better understanding yourself. The net effect of these closing intense months of the year will be to reorient you at the very core of your being, so that whatever helps you in serving that purpose is your ally. Partnership is vital for you now, and brings you important feedback on inner realms of neglected trauma that may yet heal. After mid-month you are somewhat returned to the more ordinary world of schedules and timetables although with fresh perspectives as you continue to evolve.
The following was written by our resident monthly columnist Adam Elenbaas of The Nightlight Astrology School
The month begins just as Mercury in Virgo in your twelfth house of dissolution and surrender makes a trine to Uranus in Taurus in your eighth house of death, rebirth, and other people’s resources. At the same time Mars in Virgo will be moving into the heart of the Sun (cazimi).You are also riding the wave from the potent Virgo New Moon from August 30th that will illuminate your current monthly cycle, bringing you to a better understanding of your own insides. It’s a good time for looking inward, for releasing yourself from obligations, expectations, or debts in your relationships, perhaps especially related to finances. And it’s also a great time to look for seek out forms of retreat, isolation, or withdrawal. You may only have to make sure that you are making the healthiest choices that you can; being careful of denial or avoidance.
Between September 2nd and September 4th, Venus in Virgo will then oppose Neptune in Pisces in your sixth house of work, sickness, and service. The need to escape or withdraw, perhaps for healing, or perhaps just to get away, may also include a romantic partner, or it may be stalled due to challenges in relationships that are emerging right now. Make sure you are keeping good boundAries, and you should also be careful not to make yourself into a victim.
Between September 8th and the 12th, the Sun and Mars in Virgo will go through squares to Jupiter in Sagittarius in your third house of the mind, communication, and your immediate environment. Even though you might be feeling withdrawn this month, or perhaps visiting a deeper and more inward place, there is an opportunity for tremendous forward progress in your thinking. You may also be presented with new learning opportunities or new teachers at this time. On the other hand, be on the lookout for reactionary thinking or the potential to exaggerate your thoughts based on your inner fears or longings.
Between September 13th and the 14th, Mercury and Venus will conjoin in Virgo and then move together into your home sign of Libra. If you’ve been in deeper negotiations, communications, or even challenging debates or exchanges with others, watch for things to lighten and for agreements or resolutions to be reached. You may also find that you are starting to come out of a cocoon that you’ve been in for the past month or so during this time.
On The late evening of September 13th, the Full Moon will land in Pisces, closely conjunct Neptune, in your sixth house of work, sickness, and service. Mars, your relationship house ruler, is close by and exactly opposed to Neptune. Confusion or illusion might cloud your perception of important partners. Also, even though you might love to hide away and mentally obsess about things at times this month, the emphasis on Pisces and your sixth house will repeatedly call you into action and service in the world, at home, or within your relationships. This may be a good thing, so allow yourself to be surprised by whatever calls for your attention around this time.
Between September 21st and 22nd, Jupiter in Sagittarius will square Neptune in Pisces in your sixth house, perhaps bringing with it a new perspective or an enlightened set of eyes to an old problem. For the past year you have been invited, over and over, to adopt a new way of thinking, or perhaps new ways of serving or helping others, or even a new educational journey. In Jupiter’s last pass of the square to Neptune, you are being presented with an opportunity to rediscover your faith, even as you might be jumping over a few last challenging hurdles.
On September 23rd, the Sun moves into your home sign of Libra as it crosses through the gateway of the Fall Equinox. For the next thirty days you are going to be more focused on yourself, your own health and wellness, and creating something of a new beginning for yourself.
Between September 25th and 26th, your ruling planet, Venus, will then square Saturn in Capricorn in your fourth house of home and family, just as Mercury in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn. Then, just after this, the New Moon will fall in Libra in your first house on September 28th. Expect some big changes, decisions, or difficult but necessary growth steps toward the very end of the month and in the lunar cycle to come, especially in relation to the topics of your home and family. While this transit might be more strenuous, remember that it is also helping you to make that fresh start that the Sun in your home sign is promising right now.
Finally, on September 28th, the New Moon will fall in your sign, therefore in your first house of identity, adding further emphasis to your personal evolution as you continue to better understand yourself at all levels. This will be true over the next thirty days of the lunar cycle, lasting almost through to the very end of October.
