Monthly General Astrology Forecast September 2021
By our astrologer Elena
Welcome to Soul Care September
Make wellness your priority
Happy birthday, Libra!
We begin the month with all the outer planets – Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto – retrograde. From the 7th we will also see Mercury begin its retroshadow period when it starts to slow in preparation for its full reversal 20 days later in Libra – sign of marriage, partnerships and balance but also opponents, rivals and that person who simply rubs us up the wrong way. So, with this in mind and yet another Mystic Rectangle making angles across the Mutable/Cardinal axis and the Sun in Virgo until the 22nd, what’s the message for us all? The answer to that is: Soul Care September.
Soul Care is Self-Care
The new Moon in Virgo on the 7th will trine Uranus (retro don’t forget) in Taurus. This is a real call to action for all of us when it comes to our priorities with regards to what we do every day and how it all affects us – mind, body and spirit. Soul self-care asks us to understand that we need to reboot our attitude when it comes to what we do every day and what we put in our bodies or expose ourselves to. Work (paid or unpaid), habits, routines, diet, exercise and all kinds of health matters – whether mainstream or complimentary, should be carefully looked at and adjustments made. What we surround ourselves with – people, places, things – it all has an effect on us. So, this is our call to make changes and also to grasp that key truth that total wellbeing needs to be our goal as if we are not taking care of ourselves then this has a massive knock-on effect on every other area of our lives.
If we neglect to care for ourselves, we have nothing to give to others. So, think of this as the ultimate act of giving. So, look to the details and what you do every day as this is where soul care begins. Want more? More healing, more depth, more understanding? The full Moon in Pisces on the 20th maximises insight and intuition. Reveals what’s hidden that stands between us and our shining path and can offer the way towards permanent and enhanced wellbeing. Explore where it wants to take you and be willing to see that whole, bigger picture that makes up this tapestry, in a new way. This is a full Moon of wisdom but also of un-learning if we have been going about things the wrong way or inadvertently working against our wholeness instead of with it.
The Balance Begins with YOU
Mars enters Libra on the 15th and Venus exits it to land in Scorpio on the 10th. Some of you will have already noted this puts these planets in one another’s ruling signs. So, we way they are relating or having a conversation based on understanding of each other’s perspectives and needs. It’s okay to have needs and being open about them and our vulnerabilities isn’t a sign of weakness but strength. Both can see us wanting to understand where others are coming from. Relationships and connections can transform and we take a more resonant and considered approach to how we respond to others.
Happy birthday to all the Librans out there as the Sun arrives in your 1st on the 22nd. With Mars now in your sign from the 15th its time to prioritise yourself, your goals and dreams for the coming year. Due to Mercury slowing and about to head backwards in your sign, this is going to mean going back over old ground in order to move forward with surely and soul-purpose next month. So, take your time and understand new beginnings need to be nurtured and often spring from what we planted in the past.
The Big Picture
With Venus and Vesta conjunct in Libra this month expect more focus on gender related issues and equal pay in the world at large. Vesta rules all of these and also, being forced to fit into a gender-assigned pigeon hole. So, expect trans and non-binary rights to form a big part of this too. We may see powerful shifts or an expose’ around this when Vesta joins Venus in Scorpio from the 21st.
Mercury fully retroactive in Libra on the 27th brings the retro-factor total to six planets. The usual Retro Rules apply no matter what house in your chart Mercury is backwards in. Singles may find that flirtation stalls or go silent. If you are settled, don’t ignore relationship housekeeping duties or put off that talk. This applies to duos or double acts of all descriptions. Soul care September begins with our own wellbeing and then extends to us taking care of relationship health too. Up that feelgood factor in every aspect of life.
In a nutshell: Happy birthday, Libra! You represent balance and partnerships. September asks us all to work on that perfect balancing act when it comes to taking care of our partnership with our wellbeing. The result? Simply balanced healthy love choices.
