September 13th will hold the last of three Mercury-Juno trines, which previously occurred on July 30th and August 27th, covering 2-4° of Virgo-Capricorn. Over this period, we may have been developing our partnership communication skills. Juno in Capricorn has high standards, and Mercury in Virgo wants to analyze and perfect; hopefully, for many, this has resulted in productive, if sometimes critical conversations with our nearest and dearest.
September 16th holds the second of two Mercury-Mars conjunctions, the first of which occurred earlier this month on September 3rd. Mercury and Mars together can create verbal conflict, and in Virgo, it could get hyper-critical very quickly. This type of transit could have us reorganizing our spice rack and color-coding our closet; the best way to direct this burst of energy would be to funnel it in the direction of self-improvement or projects in need of perfection.
September 20th is the last of three Mercury-Pallas trines, which previously occurred on August 8th and 13th, covering 10-13° Taurus-Virgo. Mercury and Pallas together are a strategist’s dream come true: under the cool light of their rational eyes, the next best move becomes clear as day. Plans may have been conceptualized, bettered, and implemented under these transits, although Mercury’s retrograde might have injected a clever hiccup or two into the works. It may now be clear that what previously looked like chaos was order in disguise.
Chiron opposes Vesta on September 11th, the same day that Jupiter sextiles the North Node. I wonder if there may be a need to withdraw and let go: on this day the Moon will move into its Balsamic phase, signaling a need to shed what is no longer needed, while Chiron’s painful gaze may be directed at Vesta’s workaholic, single-minded ways. Jupiter’s North Node nod may suggest that a sense of generosity, even if just for ourselves, is the way forward.
Those feel-good instincts may find a balanced outlet of expression on September 12th, when Venus trines Saturn; responsibilities may seem more like a pleasure on this day, and romantic attachments will feel solid (and grown up AF).
The next day when the Sun squares Saturn (September 13th) is traditionally considered a day of low-energy, and unlike the previous day, our to-do list may weigh heavy on our minds and bodies. Whatever we’re working towards across Virgo & Sagittarius may seem like more trouble than it’s worth. This is a quick-moving but frustrating transit: you’d be best to try and keep your eyes on the prize and your brain out of the deep end.
September 14th, 15th, and 18th are all good days for matters of heart and art, as Venus will make a few kind connections. On the 14th, Venus will be conjunct the North Node, and while it is somewhat cheap to say this transit may bring about fated, karmic romantic interactions, it’s also likely.
If you’re desperately seeking someone, you might as well take a punt on today and play your luck. The next day (September 15th) is just as nice and possibly even more so when Jupiter and Venus will exchange pleasant rays, creating a fun and lively atmosphere for drinks, eats, and winks; Chiron trine Ceres on the same day may drum up a nurturing connection that soothes the soul. The last of these aspects on the 18th when Venus trines Uranus is the most volatile, but may also be the most exciting. Love or attraction can come out of nowhere – and fast.
After this, Venus moves into Virgo, which is a less amenable sign for the lady of love, so make hay while the Sun still shines.
When Chiron opposes the Sun and Mercury opposes Neptune on September 19th, you might want to have your emotional first-aid kit to hand. Mercury opposite Neptune is not necessarily bad, but it can be confusing; whatever thoughts arise may not be clear, accurate, or helpful.
Coupled with the Chiron-Sun opposition, however, profound pain may surface on this day to shine a light on whatever work your soul wishes to lead you closer to understanding. This is a day best spent feeling our way through it, using our body instead of the mind as a guide.
The New Moon in Virgo on September 20th continues in this vein, with the Sun and Moon both opposing Chiron. We may feel wounded, both body and soul. Yet, wherever there is pain, healing lurks, too. What we’ll need to be wary of are any slippery tendencies to fall into patterns of victimization (Mercury opposite Neptune) or mind-numbing escapism (Mars opposite Neptune).
Feelings of inadequacy may arise, and under Virgo’s critical gaze, we may feel sorely lacking in one way or another; it will be important, and more productive, however, if we can focus on why these feelings have manifested and not project this pain onto others.
