Welcome to the Monthly Astrology Snapshot for the next Lunar Cycle beginning at the potent Virgo New Moon September 17th everywhere!
This Lunar Month extends an invitation to commit deeply to something in your life that you know is going to bring you into a deeper alignment with your core soul values.
We have Mars strong during this Lunar Month. Mars is demanding a revolution and with Mars moving retrograde at this time, this is a call to an inner revolution.
Virgo is a sign of purification, discipline, attention to details. Take some time to really hone in on what matters to you and embrace the fiery energy of Mars and this months Full Moon in Aries to activate some potent life changes this Lunar Month.
The upcoming Full Moon in Aries is going to bring us into even more purification and releasing. This is also a moment to initiate courage and to look for new ways forwards in your life that will support what you are committing to!
PLUS - JUPITER, PLUTO AND SATURN WILL TURN DIRECT this Lunar Month! This is such a relief as these are the planets that are responsible - Astrologically speaking - for the great restructuring of power systems on Earth. We may just see some glimpses of where this current chapter of humanity is heading as a result of the great shifts and the great cycles.
However, we must not forget that Mars will retrograde back to square these planets. Mars activates! He is making sure this revolution is happening and that we don't skip over this step and slip back into our safe zones. Mars wants us to initiate great change and I suggest embracing this energy fully!
This is a time to look within and check out what is restructuring in your life? What world views have you held that have changed this year? What beliefs have been altered? Reflect on your relationship to power structure and authority.
It is worth mentioning that we do have a mega dynamic of Mars squaring Saturn which is feeling like a big piece. We may feel an upsurge of the enough is enough! This may play out in a big way collectively. My suggestion to not go down the rabbit hole with this one if you can help it. Rather, turn the energy inward and activate an inner revolution!
Really try to stay in your heart during these cycles, the more you can remain heart centred and mentally sovereign, the more peaceful you will be. The more peaceful you are the more you can access the wisdom available in these times and not just get caught up in the energy and the you will have greater access to high level solutions and creative ways forwards through these intense times on Earth.
There is so much more to this month some of which I cover in the video above. Plus if you join The Lunar Project I include all of what I see in the Astrological Cycles into Rituals and practices to support us through these cycles.
KEY DATES & THEMES
(i) NEW MOON IN VIRGO - SEPTEMBER 17th everywhere
This New Moon in Virgo is a potent moment to really commit to something that you know needs to happen in your life. This may a daily practice, it could be a health regime. For example, you may commit to not drinking coffee or alcohol for one year. Tune into your soul. Listen.
This is also a powerful lunation to initiate something and to harness the Mars energy. If you don't have anything in particular happening, then this lunation may just show you a new way forwards.
(ii) MARS EXACTLY SQUARE SATURN - SEPTEMBER 28th - OCTOBER 1st!!!!
I've added this as it is an interesting one to watch in the collective story. This could be an instigator for some eruptions within the collective regarding revolution. At the personal and individual level, this is a moment to spark independent thinking.
(iii) FULL MOON IN ARIES - OCTOBER 1st/2nd
Full Moon in Aries is a time to release your fears and to activate courage. Aries is the great warrior/ess and is a time to ignite our greatest ambitions with the passionate enthusiasm so strongly expressed in the symbol of Aries!
:: There is of course so much more going on this lunar month which I am weaving into Rituals for people participating in <<<The Lunar Project >>>
2020 will end. Life will move into a new cycle. You can either go on the roller coaster ride that is 2020 with your hands in the air and embrace it fully or you can be the one that is freaking out and maybe even throwing up at the end (that's nearly been me a few times ;))
There are multiple complex dynamics at play this Lunar Month, but you don't have to get lost in the complexity of it all. Just stay centred. Commit to a daily practice. Stay mindful. Understand that we will all be charged up that little bit more and give each other some space.
Let go of fear! The only thing to fear is fear itself. Let it go at the Full Moon and turn fear into courage - the stamp of Aries! With Jupiter going direct and all the fire in the field, this may just be a month to reignite faith where it may be lost. We can still believe in something greater no matter what is changing around us.
We are living through a major moment in history. This is the year we will look back and know that it all changed and if you move consciously with these times, as opposed to spinning in fear or living in denial, you will be so grateful that you did.
Also, take a moment to look at the sky this month as Mars is getting brighter and brighter. Look towards the East later in the evening, he is glowing red, you can't miss him. He is super close to Earth right now and soon he will be even brighter than Jupiter! It is a sight to behold!
Take it easy everyone and take care of each other and don't forget that we are all co-creating this story together!
With love always,
