Welcome to September
Spring has sprung here in the southern hemisphere. The mercury is rising, flowers are blooming and the days are lengthening. There is a palpable hopefulness for a summer with more freedom and joy than we’ve experienced over the last couple of years albeit a sense that much is changing.
September always offers the invitation to alter our habits and clear out the clutter in our professional and personal environments. But this year September is especially powerful for doing so….
The energy of Virgo invites us to bring order to chaos. To understand what’s working and what’s not and to make changes required to bring things back into balance so that you can work and live in ways that are sustainable for your mind, body and soul. More than ever keeping your thoughts focused on what you’re here to create vs being distracted by local and global events will be critical to experiencing joy, peace and inspiration.
This year these Virgo themes are emphasised due to Mercury retrograde (Sept 10 to Oct 2). Being the ruling planet of Virgo, Mercury’s retrograde underscores the importance of reviewing, revising and redoing in order to create new efficiencies. This is perfect for helping you see what aspects of your life you are ready to create new habits and routines in. Read your Sun sign column to get more information on how this can occur for you.
Also at play, and it will continue to do so through to the end of the year, is the palpable energetic shift going on around “Freedom vs Control”, “The Old vs The New” and “Tradition vs Innovation”. August was a big month for leaning into your heart, backing yourself and understanding what it is that you are here to do. The desire to know what your unique purpose is in the world is getting stronger each day. As is the yearning to figure out how to make that happen so you can make a difference. (I know this to be true as you’re a conscious human if you’re reading this!).
Throughout September expect more clarity about the ideal way to move forward. Ideas are likely to drop in to help you know the best steps to take in this changing world. But it is also likely to be a big month of news. Around the globe there is much suffering through war, fires, floods, famine, shootings, corruption, changing laws, power and control. To that end, it is your job to focus on what you can control. To stay committed to your path to make a difference. To not get side-tracked and lose hope. September helps us to focus our minds. To identify habits that will support us to take the higher ground and stay hopeful and optimistic for what the future brings. And it has never been more important as there is still so much global change coming in October and November.
Finally, relationships will be up for review during September. You’ll be considering who you want to be partnering with professionally and in your personal life. Notice who you’re drawn to right now. How do you feel when you are around them? Are you aligned in the difference you’re here to make? The end of September is a great time to really lean into these questions.
I invite you to work with the lunations this month. Head to your sign to read about what’s available for you to initiate and bring into being.
What a busy time you have been having this year with Jupiter travelling through your sign amplifying your energy and drive. And it’s all about to get busier – if you can believe it! In late August your ruling planet, Mars, entered Gemini where he will be until 25 March 2023! Here Mars’ desire to get things done is dispersed in numerous directions. In other words, it’s likely you’ll have a number of big balls in the air and you’ll want to be catching all of them…. But you can’t! So, it’s VITAL that from now until 2023 you are really discerning about what you say YES to. As much as you like to put your hand up and make things happen, you cannot do it all. Priortise those projects that make your heart sing. That have a strong sense of meaning and purpose for you.
The good news is that whatever you do decide to put your attention to – use social media to get the word out. Messages you share have the potential to spread far and wide.
This month, Mercury’s retrograde invites you to review your primary working and personal relationships. You’ll be honing in on who you are committed to partnering with for the longer term. It’s also the ideal time for a health check, particularly the weeks of Sept 10 to Oct 2.
This month’s Full Moon in Pisces on Sept 10 is likely to have you tap deeply into your spiritual side, Dreams will likely be extra vivid and you could well find that fresh insight and inspiration about how you want to show up in the world.

Wow – Change, Change and more Change….. yes? Brace yourselves Taureans. In September, October and November there is even more change coming. You are in the midst of a profound period of re-invention and deeply considering how you want to show up in the world. Your intuition has been going through the roof and you know that you are here to be part of the positive change in the world.
This month’s Mercury retrograde supports you to review your daily routine and overall health. With so much going on, you need to prioritise carefully. You are yearning for more fun and lightness in your life due to the strong emphasis on work. Use Sept 10 to Oct 2 to identify the necessary adjustments you need to make to bring more of that back into your world.

The New Moon in Libra on September 26 is the ideal time to set new health and wellness goals. You know it’s time. And with Summer just around the corner you want to be feeling good in your mind, body and soul.
This month there are a couple of major planetary shifts happening for you to take advantage of.
Firstly Mercury, your ruling planet, is stationing retrograde giving you time to pause, reflect, redo, rethink and re-edit. Given your natural desire to juggle lots of projects at once and creatively produce, from Sept 10 to Oct 2 you’ll have the chance to slow down and decide which of those projects are your priority and which ones can wait. Allow extra time when travelling due to potential delays and pay attention to your communication – be clear and concise so as not to cause confusion.
The second shift already under way is associated with Mars. The planet of single-focus and drive, moved into your sign at the end of August and will be visiting until March 2023 due to his upcoming retrograde (Oct 30 to Jan 12). This extended stay in your sign is rare. The last time Mars retrograded in Gemini was 2008 and before that 1980. This is a great transit for focussed, fast paced writing and creating so if you’re penning a book, poetry or music, this will be a welcome boost! On the flip side, this transit can see more speeding fines and angry outbursts – think war of words. A great way to temper this is to stay grounded with meditation and breathwork.

Just remember that if you are looking for a new car, wait until after late October when Mercury is back to full steam ahead.
