September 2021 Astrology Almanac





September 1st – Moon in Cancer Sextile Sun in Virgo

September opens a new month with an aspect of new opportunity. Sun sextile Moon is a promising aspect that brings new avenues of support, vision, and collaboration towards your goals. Conscious will links arms with natural instincts bringing a sense of agreement in purpose. Cancer and Virgo are both feminine signs that are inviting you into an aspect of flow. Supportive emotions enrich growth in the material world. A ‘flow state’ is when your mind and heart is in alignment in the present moment. It is important to recognize what activities or environments are supportive of you entering this state. A flow state is attaining a period of focused attention. One of the most foundational principles of working with energy is that your attention directs a flow of energy essentially shaping your perception of reality. It is time to see the power in that truth to be able to live a more aligned life. Sextiles bring resources we need for new talents and ways of experiencing life. By honing in on what allows you to enter a flow state you uncover another layer of yourself. All of the answers are within you and if you can trust that by mirroring energy such as this you can feel a new sense of alignment that is life changing from the inside out.


September 5th – Venus in Libra Square Pluto in Capricorn


Libra and Capricorn form a square because one is feminine/yin (Capricorn) and the other, masculine/yang (Libra) while they both share the same cardinal nature. Cardinal signs change the season, they pioneer in a new direction but finding a middle ground between the motives of two strong leaders is an active pursuit. The heart’s desires (Venus) in Libra seeking justice and harmony may meet resistance when confronting an old way (Pluto) in Capricorn. Pluto’s transit through Capricorn is meant to stimulate change by waking us up to the impact of ‘that’s just the way it is’ mentality. Where Capricorn is in your chart will give more personal insight on what aspect of life has been having this awareness start to break through. Libra in Venus can meet situations with tact but their diplomatic nature can have them seeing too many points of view all while wanting to find a middle ground. Do not get lost in the opinion of others now, it is nice to take others perspectives in consideration but do not lose your own footing. This energy will catalyze significant shifts that will unfold during Venus’ transit through Scorpio the end of this week. Having our way with something or someone can also be strong. Venus square Pluto can carry energy of Venus in Scorpio, so use this as a preview to adjust your thermostat to intense energies for they are the most transformative.


*Venus is transiting my second house of personal value and Pluto my fifth house of expression. I have seen in my life how doing recent work with my self-esteem and appreciating my value has changed the way I creatively express myself. Also, how this brought forth shadow work by revealing the resistance I had integrated as part of my beliefs before getting to this point.



September 6th – New Moon in Virgo


The New Moon enters at 14 degrees Virgo. Although New Moons are always a perfect time to set new intentions, Virgo rules over your daily tasks and puts focus on what necessary vs what is not necessary. If you’ve been working towards a bigger goal these past few months this is the perfect time to look through a different lens. Since Virgo is a mutable sign, she effortlessly leads us through the transition of summer to fall. What parts of your goals feel effortless? How do you feel when you’re in the total flow of things? The dark side of Virgo is the perfectionist and feeling as though you cannot create until everything is perfect. Finding yourself in states of overwhelm or that you aren’t doing enough or doing “what’s right” for yourself and your goals can make it all feel impossible. It is easy to look at others and think that what worked for them could work for you, or you need all these things before you can have success. Everyone’s story is different, and your unique journey is not comparable to anyone else. It’s time to clear up all the gunk around what is needed to be perfect, and just be imperfectly yourself. Being able to shift through this and understand what we can do right in this moment, with the resources and tools we have currently at our disposable, is enough. Release the need to know and explain every detail and lean into what feels right.



September 6th – Mercury Retrograde Pre Shadow


Mercury will begin her Pre Shadow until going retrograde on September 26th. As always, this pre shadow period will set the stage for the challenges and healing you will uncover during Mercury Retrograde. Themes will begin over the next two weeks that may bring up a lot for you. Since Mercury is in Libra, themes may include what you need vs what you are receiving out the relationships in your life, never excluding the one with yourself. Thing’s others do may start to bother/irk you more than before or you may just start to notice them. An uncomfortable feeling deep inside regardless of external circumstance can make you question why and what is making you feel like this. It isn’t always as obvious as a “negative” feeling, just something feeling off or less than desirable. Be sure to go inward and start to dissect these feelings rather than casting blame on others and saying things that are rude and harmful.



September 10th – Venus Enters Scorpio


Venus, the planet of love and sensuality, enters fixed, water sign Scorpio. You will begin to feel the passion in you skyrocket. Venus in Scorpio makes gives you the confidence to go after anything (or anyone) that makes your heart burst with pleasure. Your love and attention to the apple of your eye can come off as powerful as a riptide. You don’t even have to say anything to attract things you want during this time, as it will come to you like a magnet once you’ve declared what you want. You can attract whatever you want with ease. Be careful not to manipulate others during this time as you are tuned in to your intuition to give others exactly what they want, exactly how they want it. You can soak in this harmonious energy without needing complete control.


September 13th – First Quarter Moon in Sagittarius


What does holding the faith look like to you? Do you believe that no matter what is occurring, no matter how far away it looks from your desires manifesting, that things are right around the corner? It’s easy to keep peeking around the corner in anticipation of your desire arriving but this just makes it take longer. The First Quarter Moon in Sagittarius is here to remind you to stop looking for it. Stop waiting. Stop thinking one little thing will change it all. It’s time to feel the relief instead of lust. It’s time to drop it all and forget about the outcome. Sagittarius wants to travel and laugh and have a ball. They have faith that things are coming, and they don’t have to wait for it come to be whoever they are. Optimism can be at an all-time high if you are able to let your hair down. Stop being so serious and so stiff. Embody the joy of being spontaneous and carefree. If there has been an activity you’ve been wanting to sign up for (Get into nature) or a new place you’ve wanted to go – now is the perfect time. When you forget about what you’re lacking, it may just be waiting for you when you get back.



September 14th – Mars Enters Libra


The impulsive planet of Mars lands in air sign Libra. Mars is the planet of action while Libra is the sign of balance. Libra will not decide until they have gathered information from all corners while Mars likes to impulsively act on what is in front of them. You may feel tension between these two pulls. This is a great time to collaborate with others and open your mind to others’ ideas and opinions that can benefit you and the group. Sometimes, when we are so on top of things and have all these ideas in our head, they either go nowhere or don’t have time to fully bake. With the help of those around you, you can talk things through and be open to another’s mindset. This can help you get things done faster and more efficiently than if you didn’t consult anyone around you. You may also start to realize that you don’t have to carry the world on your shoulders, the Universe will always bring you people to help, guide, and bring you closer to where you need to be. Just open your eyes to those around you and accept their help.



September 17th – Venus in Scorpio Square Saturn in Aquarius

A planet stationed retrograde has it’s energy take on a more yin or feminine expression. The expression of Saturn that is responsibility, deliverance of lessons, and life’s hardest pills to swallow turns within. Saturn also deals with authority and our relationship with control. Venus in Scorpio is the heart undergoing a process of alchemy; with a square to Saturn, this process can feel sobering and even disenchanting but yeilds remarkable healing. For those taking on the responsibility of healing their heart this aspect can be rewarding if you grew up in a family where love meant control. Energetic blocks caused by resentment are called to clear out of the system with self developed awareness. Even though squares are active this time is more constructive for processing the truth of our needs and desires. Your timing is divine timing and whatever you feel through at this time is right of schedule. This aspect can bring a sense of isolation or fear of missing out for the purpose of seeing where these emotions live in our bodies and how real our minds make them. These are only seasons; there is no bypassing the seasons of the heart, it is part of the gift of being human. You deserve a love and life of significance and making space by hearing out the outdated confines on heart make room for just that.


September 20th – Vesta Enters Scorpio


Vesta, Roman goddess of the sacred flame and the feminine archetype of the ‘sister’ is recognized for obtaining union without the merging with another. She is honored for dedicating her life to keeping the sacred flame burning that was essential for survival in Roman times as it provided protection for the city. Vesta takes on a unique energy in Scorpio. In Scorpio we see what was an internal spark merge with the idea of another or coming outside of itself and initially this can bring up issues around control and intimacy. Mirroring may be coming up where the lines are blurred between whether a situation is the truth or a manifestion from the fears of the mind. Vesta is Scorpio seeks penetration into the soul and can bring about heightened emotion. Sacral chakra work is impactful now along with transmutation of sexual energy and beliefs around it.

It is the unfulfilled, obsessed, and controlling parts of ourselves that require our compassion and understanding the most.




September 20th – Full Moon in Pisces


The Full Moon illuminates the sky at 28 degrees Pisces. Pisces ends the zodiac and Full Moon represents release, so this is a powerful time to close the book on old parts of yourself that are no longer serving you. Instead of feeling depressed or crying over what was; you are hopeful for the future. This won’t be a dramatic end rather a feeling of relief. Pisces are known as the “shape shifters” of the zodiac, as they can easily take on others’ qualities as their own. They can embody whatever they believe will appease whoever is around them. This Full Moon is illuminating what you’ve been carrying that you’ve picked up along the way. What could have been necessary or a survival tactic, is now keeping you from being your authentic self. Just like Pisces can pull any quality out of their bag, who do you become when things get uncomfortable or when you are trying to get your way? You may have noticed the different fragments of yourself have been coming up a lot in recent events. Something may happen and old patterns of thinking or things others have told you may surface, another part of you may then fight that thought and the battle wages on. The Full Moon is here to remind you that you get to choose who wins – every time. Nothing is set in stone it just may feel like it after years of repetition. Let your intuition guide you into positive outcomes. Allow your higher self in and the demons just run away. You can send them love and move forward.



September 22nd – Sun Enters Libra


The Sun enters the scales of Libra marking the Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. Libra is ruled by Venus and known for cooperation, nobility, and seeking balance between the needs of the self and another. They are romantisists and the romance they invite into life is not only through partnership but everything from the way they speak to how they dress. Librans are naturally sociable and strong communicators being air and their cardinal quality makes them charming and persuasive if they choose to be. Libra can learn the hard way that maintaining peace cannot cost you your own. Sometimes their understanding and good sportsmanship can be misunderstood as laziness or indecision. They can benefit from being conscious about any seeming needs to be admired or accpeted that shape their behavior. They are natural condiuts of love and with that grace their presence is enough. This season Libra asks us to live in our truth which is located in the heart.


September 23rd – Venus in Scorpio Opposite Uranus in Taurus


Uranus’ transit through Taurus has ignited a change in collective values. Aspects made between the rebel planet shake up what that other planet represents. Venus in Scorpio lives in the depths so this opposition will also be felt more deeply. Any left over tension built from the recent square between Venus and Saturn seeks release through internal integration. Breaking free and liberation become magnetizing. Sudden arrivals and departures become the new satisfaction like ‘meeting the status quo’ once was and still is for many. Saturn square Uranus being a major theme this year- we see people breaking conventions and fixing to take some kind of leap while others cling on tighter to familiarity and outer authority. The Taurus/Scorpio axis speaks of life and death, beginnings and endings. It voices the theme of attachment being fixed in nature and how we process change and loss. This aspect may be bringing our awareness to how we feel about taking leaps in life. Are we fools for doing so? Will we be caught?




September 26th – Mercury Retrograde in Libra


Mercury will begin her three week Retrograde in the cardinal sign of Libra. As Retrogrades are always known as time of going inward and Libra is represented by harmony and balance, we will be going on a journey of finding our inner stability that will grant us peace. Where has life brought us up until this moment? How many crossroads will we face until we pick (and stick!) to the path that is in alignment for who we are? This Mercury Retrograde will show you what parts of your life seem out of tune.


Libra rules over relationships/partnerships which will come up for critique during this retrograde. We can start to look at what our relationships really look like, rather than the made-up story we’ve created in a last resort to not lose the ones we believe we love. Our relationships should be an even balance of give and take – yes, it is not always perfect, sometimes we must give more, or we must take more depending on the situation we are being presented with – but if we find that the scales are tipped forever in one direction – it’s not meant for you. Don’t waste you breathe, don’t seek revenge, don’t try to change yourself to save face. The Universe will not allow us the next step when we are desperately hanging on to something that has shown us every which way is a dead end. Let go and believe what you deserve is already making its way to you.


Mercury Retrograde is known for its communication problems, travel delays, and technology glitches and although these issues may arise for us in several different ways, it a mere inconvenience, a test if you will, to see how strong the universe needs to kick to make sure you are even paying attention. Allow this issue to pass by, we can laugh and tell Mercury Retrograde we know she’s there and continue our healing work.




September 28th – Last Quarter Moon in Cancer


The Last Quarter Moon in Cancer is asking for your forgiveness for how hard you have been on yourself in your own head. Sometimes, the way we talk to ourselves is so nasty we would never dare talk to anyone we cared or loved the same way. It is easy to overlook all the progress and amazing achievements you’ve had and instead focus on why you aren’t where you need to be, didn’t get what you wanted, or whatever else you have told yourself. Forgive yourself. Have compassion. Give yourself a hug. Say one nice thing to yourself a day and see how much things start to change. How we treat ourselves is how we allow others to treat us too. Set the bar high. Love yourself deeply and I promise those around you will change their tune. This is the perfect time to take a trip with someone you love, even if just for a day. Let the beauty of Mother Nature remind you how effortlessly life can be. The sun will always rise the next day, it’s a guarantee. Things always show up at the right time, at the right place, so you don’t need to worry. You are allowed to make mistakes. You learn, you grow, you adapt to change, and you continue your journey. You might as well continue with love and kindness.


September 29th – Venus in Scorpio Trine Neptune in Pisces


A water trine between Venus and Neptune brings a flood to the heart. Though the celestial energies flow in harmony in a trine, the power of the element is illuminated, especially with a planet in its sign of rulership like Neptune in Pisces. Neptune is the ‘higher octave’ of Venus; both planets provide an expansion of the heart space for the collective. Venus rules beauty and the essence of pleasure which is currently fueled by Scorpios’ passion. Neptune rules music and spirituality. Neptune brings uniting forces of people through the senses inviting us into the memory of living as an emotional being. Like water we hold memory-an instrinsic wisdom through all of our senses. And through this mystical wisdom and sensual communication within we connect to others and share it. We may be feeling very intune with others and our surroundings at this time and have a heightened sensitivity for the beauty of human emotion, the highest of which being love.
