Astrological Forecast for September 2018

by Lou Valentino

Labor Day marks the end of beach weather but hopefully we can get several more beach days out of this season.

Mercury moves into Virgo on September 5th helping students to buckle down into a new school year of classes and homework.

Mercury in Virgo is in its dignity so it feels natural to express all forms of communications. If you have Virgo Sun, Moon or rising, you are ready for life with a clear mind for writing, speaking or communications through social media.

Saturn stations direct at 2 degrees of Capricorn on September 6th. Now we have all of the personal planets: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn in direct motion. The gates are open and it's time for everyone to move forward with their plans they delayed or worked on over the summer months.

If you have Sun, Moon or rising in Capricorn, you are ready to work hard in the outward direction from all of the groundwork you may have done since June. Mars turned direct on August 27 at 28 degrees of Capricorn and now Saturn turns direct. Be careful you don’t let your workaholic tendencies bring troubles in your personal life if you are involved with someone or have a family.

Venus moves into the sign of Scorpio on September 9th then it turns retrograde on October 5th and enters Libra again in retrograde motion on November 1st. Stations direct at 25 degrees of Libra on November 16th and enters Scorpio again onDecember 3rd, 2018 and will move into the sign of Sagittarius on January 7th, 2019.

So, from September 9th, 2018 till January 7th, 2019 the sign of Scorpio and Libra are taking a good look inside for answers about relationships, money, material things including foods, creative energies and how to keep balance (Libra) and passion

(Scorpio) alive in relationships. Also, issues surrounding birth and death. If they feel suck in a relationship it will feel very stuck and the need to move out of the stuck energy will be very hard to ignore anymore. Finances with your partner and inheritance is also highlighted during the Venus retrograde period.

It’s a fresh start for those with Sun, Moon or rising in Scorpio or Libra in 2019. If you don’t feel stuck in your life then you can improve on what you already have. If you feel stuck you will want to move forward and release whatever is holding you back from truly enjoying your life.

The new Moon is Virgo at 17 degrees at 2:01PM EDT. If you have your Sun, Moon or rising in Virgo, you have some extra luck coming your way as The Sun and Moon trine both Pluto and sextile Jupiter. Pluto is in the 2nd house of money and Jupiter is in the 11th house of wishes and dreams as well as new friendships.

Both the 2nd house and 11th house deal with financial gains when well aspected. With Neptune opposing the Sun and Moon, can you make your dreams come true. Neptune is asking Virgo to believe in your dreams, your visions and you will prosper. You are the only one in your way as the Sun and Moon square the rising at 13 degrees of Sagittarius in this new Moon chart caste for Washington, D.C. The part of fortune is exactly on top of the rising in this T-square. The outcome looks very promising for Virgo’s. Go for it........

Tenison for the signs of Scorpio, Taurus and Capricorn coming from a T-square. Rely on your Gemini friend's advice. Gemini does not have issues with moving on from one thing to another and the fixed signs of Taurus and Scorpio need to let go of something that’s holding them back.

Mars moves back into Aquarius on September 10th giving those with Sun, Moon or rising in Aquarius an extra boost of energy. Mars has been moving through Aquarius and Capricorn since June of 2018 and now Aquarius is ready to let it all out.

Mars will remain in Aquarius till November 16th, 2018. From August 27th to November 16 of 2018 both Capricorn and Aquarius can manifest a lot of accomplishments in their professional lives and move into 2019 with greater financial power.

Mercury moves into Libra on September 21st and the Sun moves into Libra on the 22nd at 9:54PM EDT which starts the fall equinox. Happy Fall season to everyone and happy birthday to those born under the sign of Libra. A great time to bring balance back to life with both Mercury and Sun in Libra.

The full Moon on September 24th is in the sign of Aries at 2 degrees. Aries wants to fight and with Mars still in Aquarius all the way into the November midterm elections, this full Moon will start lots of noise and passion (Aries) with an independent rebellious tone (Aquarius) to the issues that Americans want to vote on.

The Democratic Party needs to be careful it does not fall into the pit hole of pointing the finger instead of making it crystal clear what ISSUES they want too supported in this midterm election. If they just go after President Trumps character like Hillary Clinton tried to do, it will not be to their advantage.

The tone of politics has been very riddled with sloppy aggressive energies coming from the left and corruption coming from the right and the economy continues to get better despite all of the NOISE. Come November there will be large turnouts on BOTH sides.

If you have Sun, Moon or rising in Aries, this full Moon affects you most. This full Moon has 2 T-squares and a Yod (Finger of God) pointing to the sign of Gemini.

Aries is the opposite sign of Libra. How do we find balance between our individual selfish needs and the needs of those in partnerships? Where is the balance? That’s the calling of this full Moon chart. From September 24th till October 9th, both of the signs of Aries and Libra are working out the differences and coming to a new understanding about relationships by the new Moon on October 9th.

The T-squares create tensions but they also move energies with cardinal signs. Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn are the cardinal quality signs and are affected by a T-square. Cancer is the missing leg in the T-square so look to Cancer friends for a better perspective on life when it seems too stressful to handle.

The other T-square involves the fixed signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. These are the most stubborn signs of the Zodiac and do not let go of issues easily or with grace. This second T-square is asking them to let go of issues that are no longer serving their lives. The sign of Leo is at the open end of this aspect so seek out friends who are born under the sign of Leo for advice to help balance the tensions.

Find a creative outlet to release energies that have become too tense. With both Mars and Venus, the romantic planets involved in this second T-square, the fixed signs can find themselves in arguments with their partners. Mercury and Sun in Libra helps to find the balance and the balance is needing to manifest BEFORE Venus stations retrograde on October 5th.

The Yod offers the signs of Gemini, Capricorn and Scorpio to transform their lives through all forms of communications. Also, to financially benefit from others such as a spouse or family member.

Scorpio and Libra, because Venus will turn retrograde in October, will experience a longer close look inside of themselves to create the kind of changes needed to grow and evolve. The choices made in October for Libra and November for Scorpio will determine a happy holiday season or the same old stuck energies.

The affirmation for all signs in September and October is “I LET GO OF THE OLD AND EMBRACE ALL OF THE WONDERFUL NEW THAT THE UNIVERSE HAS FOR ME”.

And also.


Happy Fall 2018 to everyone:
