Planetary Alignments September 2018

This is the first of a new project of summarizing the key planetary and star alignments for every coming month. I am not making any prediction of what is going to happen, as that is always up to free will, I am just reading some of the energies coming to us from the sky. The purpose is to assist people to navigate the energy flow of the days, and for people to be able to time their energy work and projects to the planetary alignments.
Of course I can not address all aspects and all energies of the month so I am focusing on the most significant moments as I see them.

If you want to understand more about the type of astrology I do, you can read here :

This summer has seen a lot of retrograde planets, bringing a lot of focus on inner work, review, re-evaluation, shadow work, etc. Since the end of august and as we go through september, planets turn direct again and we are entering a new phase with new projects, more action and covering new territory as we integrate the lessons of this fading retrograde season.

Tomorrow, on september 5/6th, a grand trine involving Mercury and Athena in Virgo, Saturn in Capricorn, and Uranus in Taurus will activate as Mercury and Athena enter Virgo. This grand trine will be further activated as Saturn who has been retrograde, stations and turns direct again, on the same day.

This is a powerful energy which will be active and will build up for several days and will culminate at the powerful new moon on 9/9. It is a grounding stabilizing energy (Earth trine), to assist us to bring Light in our lives and in our minds, to separate the wheat from the chaff, to get new downloads and insights in order to move forward and ground, stabilize and manifest our new projects.

The new moon in Virgo on 9/9 has many interesting and powerful planetary alignments. Venus in particular is in focus, as she enters Scorpio just a few hours before the new moon. Venus is now at its closest to Earth so her energy is stronger and she is also about to turn retrograde in early october. She is now covering the territory which she will revisit again twice as she goes retrograde and turns direct again, so the questions and aspects of our lives that will be worked on during retrograde are being brought to our consciousness through september. This whole process is happening through the end of 2018 and is a major theme for the energies of these next few months.

When Venus does this retrograde phase at its closest point to Earth, she goes back and forth creating this loop pattern in the sky, which is actually one of the points of the pentagram of the famous Venus rose pattern :

Venus is the energy of the Goddess, lover, and beauty archetypes in all of us. When she goes through the retrograde period, this is a period of facing and reviewing how we relate to this within us. The main question is what inner aspects of us that relate to these Venus energies are we externalizing and attracting outside in our circumstances ? We will talk more about this process over the next few months as she turns retrograde in october.

Venus is doing this whole process in the signs of Libra and Scorpio, which is very significant. Libra is her home sign so she is stronger there, it's the energies of partnerships, justice and balance. Scorpio follows Libra, bringing the results of that partnership : merging, transformation, alchemical death and rebirth, alchemical marriage, etc.
These are important themes for Venus and is it very significant that she will cross from Libra to Scorpio on the day of the new moon, just 8 hours prior.
It is even more significant that as she does so, she activates two powerful aspects called a grand square and a kite :

The kite is a completion of the Earth grand trine we mentioned earlier. The energy of the grand trine will be channeled into the rebirth of Venus energies as she enters Scorpio.
Uranus is especially important here as he is in opposition to Venus and will be involved in all the aspects. Uranus is the energies of inter-dimensional communication, downloads and insights, that in this case will assist the rebirth of Venus Goddess energies during the new moon.
The grand square involves Lilith south node, and Varuna north node, which will bring the energies of our cosmic origins (Varuna) and the cosmic womb (Lilith) in this process.

This new moon is in the sign of Virgo, which is one of the archetype of ancient temple priestess, the energy of creating order and birthing Soul energies through the physical body. Neptune in Pisces in opposition to the new moon brings energies of Oneness into the picture. The sextiles between the new moon, Jupiter, Pluto and Neptune, all in feminine signs, bring an energy of ease to surrender into the unconditional Goddess presence. This will also last for a few days after the new moon. There are other powerful aspects at this new moon but covering it all would be too long.

The energies until this new moon are stabilizing and softer, and the energies that will come after this new moon are more about going forward and making things real.

On september 11, Mars enters Aquarius. He is covering the same territory that he did during his retrograde phase and so this is bringing conclusion, putting the lessons into practice, for this process.
As Mars enters Aquarius this activates a double square between Venus Uranus and Mars.

This very much amplifies the energies and connects together Mars and Venus and the retrograde process of inner review they are both going through this year, so this aspect is very much about conciling masculine feminine and male female and opposite polarities. Uranus brings an energy of unexpected events and actions, release of pent up energies, and downloads and insights. This will start on september 11 and last over the next few days and it will be a time to be careful about tensions, to stay calm and use situations constructively, to avoid polarizing situations too much, to concile polarities involved in the situation within us and to look at the higher purpose behind the situations.

On september 17 around 5am UTC, the moon aligns in the direction of the Central Sun together with Vesta. Vesta is a priestess archetype who is keeper of the sacred flame of the Goddess, the fire representing the manifested Light presence of the Goddess on Earth and the kundalini energies. She has been aligned with the Central Sun direction for a few months and this is the last few days of this alignment.

This energy aligning with the Moon will last for a few hours before and after 5am UTC and is a very good time to do energy work, in particular to bring Central Sun and Goddess energies on Earth, with sacred sexuality/kundalini work and/or other practices. This can help to bring resolution and release to the intense energies of this period.

Then will come the september equinox on the 23rd. At the equinox the Sun enters Libra, bringing energies of Justice, Balance, reconciling opposites. The Sun will be opposing Chiron and asteroid Hygeia in Aries, while Vesta together with Saturn in Capricorn form a double square with Sun and Chiron.

Chiron and Hygeia in Aries represent the healing of our core wounds. As they oppose Libra this is the energy of inner understanding that can bring reconciliation and forgiveness within. Saturn and Vesta together joining in this process is about facing reality, seeing the effects of causes and transmuting them into Light with the sacred fire of the Vesta Goddess.
Mars and south node together in Aquarius will be trine to the Sun and sextile Chiron and Hygeia, assisting us to take action, trying new different approach and insights to address our past accumulated energies and assist the healing process.
Two days later the full moon comes and the Moon will be aligned with Chiron and Hygeia at this time, bringing more energy and Light into this same process.

So this is a powerful period of time to do shadow work, healing work, addressing the core wounds of relationships to others and of human society as a whole, transmuting them into the sacred Kundalini fire of the Goddess presence.
