The Astrology of 2021

The Astrology of September – Part One

Welcome to my horoscopes for the first half of September. I’ve taken a few months off over Summer.. anyone who lives in Minnesota knows how manic the season can be! Especially with two full moons in Aquarius, with Saturn present! Ugh! Can I get a witness from all the Leo people? 

Let’s take a look at what’s happening for the first couple weeks of this month. 

Before I do that, I need to let you know that Mercury is stationing to go Retrograde on the 26th, before actually going retrograde on the 28th. If you have any Mercury related activities to get done, try to do them before by the 6th before Mercury enters it’s shadow period. That includes contracts, buying new technology, writing important letters/emails, etc. If you can’t, don’t stress — sometimes we’re meant to ‘take the scenic route’ or the detour in life!

Mars opposite Neptune — September 2nd — signs affected: Virgo, Pisces, Aries, Scorpio

We start out with fiery Mars, God of War, approaching an opposition to watery, imaginative Neptune.. this goes exact on September 2nd. Mars is in Virgo, a sign associated with Health, particularly the intestinal region. People may experience digestive or general inflammation around this time. There could be some element of something being hard to diagnose with Neptune muddying the waters. Neptune can also represent toxicity so that is a possibility also. Pets are also signified by Virgo, so if your furry friend is out of sorts around this period, that could be why.. Make sure to have them checked by a vet if need be!  

Aries and Scorpio people may be feeling more OCD / detail oriented than usual with their ruler, Mars in Virgo, but a feeling of fogginess or overwhelm could occur around the 2nd. 

Virgo and Pisces people may experience some kind of sense of inner tension around drive/motivation and procrastination/escapism.  

Neptune can also give artistic inspiration so if you’re feeling out of sorts, channel the energy into creative outlets! 

Mercury trine Saturn — September 4th — signs affected: Virgo, Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

Communicative Mercury trines Saturn, God of Structure on September 4th. This is a good time to draw up contracts, communicate about boundaries (especially in relationships), make large scale IT changes, get some solid writing done, make changes to your routine, and so on. 

Libra and Aquarius people will feel this the most, followed by Gemini and Virgo

Venus square Pluto — September 5th — signs affected: Libra, Capricorn, Taurus

Venus, Goddess of Love and Friendship squares Pluto, God of the Underworld on September 5th. Whenever Pluto is involved, there is often an energy of catharsis present, and in this context, involves relationships, both platonic and romantic. Secrets may come to the surface, or there may be conversation that has been long overdue taking place on this day. Sometimes, in order to move forward and begin anew, things have to be broken down, with all that is no longer serving you discarded. This is the fundamental energy of Pluto. 

We may see themes of this nature this in the news, especially around abuse of power in relationships. 

The markets may also experience some kind of extreme fluctuation around this time.

Libra and Capricorn people will feel this the most, followed by Taurus. Though all signs will experience it on some level. 

This is, however, followed up by a more positive transit the very next day.

Venus trine Jupiter — September 6th — signs affected: Libra, Capricorn, Taurus, Aquarius

Magnanimous Jupiter comes to the rescue the next day, with a sense of help or assistance, resolution, positivity, and so on. There may be a sense of renewed optimism about the situation of the previous day. 

Mars trine Pluto — September 6th — signs most affected: Virgo, Capricorn, Scorpio, Aries

Mars, God of War, trines Pluto, God of the Underworld on the same day. This may somehow tie in with the events involving Venus squaring Pluto / trining Jupiter. Mars rules masculine energy, drive, motivation, the Military, etc, and in a trine with Pluto, there is a sense of catharsis/renewal present, but with more of a sense of ease as the two planets are in a trine, not a square such as with Venus.

This is a good day for getting stuff done, getting a powerful workout in, and editing/doing very detail oriented work. 

Virgo and Capricorn people will feel this the most, followed by Aries and Scorpio.

Sun trine Uranus — September 6th — signs most affected: Virgo, Taurus, Leo

The Sun makes a trine to revolutionary, electrifying Uranus the same day! The 6th is bound to be an interesting day! Energy of breakthroughs and revolution in one’s life is present at this time, especially for Virgo and Taurus people, followed by Leo. This may involve finances, with Uranus being in Taurus. We may see some kind of jump in the stock market, or activity involving crypto.

Venus enters Scorpio — September 10th — signs most affected: Scorpio, Libra, Taurus

This transit has a similar flavor to that of September 5th. For the duration Venus is in Scorpio (until October 7th), this will be a period of looking inward, examining the shadow elements within friendships and relationships. Venus also has rulership over Art, Design & Music, so this may be a period for really going deep and purging that which is no longer serving you creatively. Transformative experiences may happen creatively during this time. Libra and Taurus people may feel more introverted than normal through this period. 

For Scorpio people, the topic of love, relationships, or artistic expression may become more active around this period.
