As the summer ends and we head into the colder months, September provides a great opportunity for reflection, learning about ourselves, and exploring different areas of our lives. It’s important to take some time during this period to think about our past successes and failures, and how we can use them to grow both emotionally and spiritually.
Make sure to take time out to nourish your body, mind, and soul – try something new; challenge yourself; act with purpose; spend quality time with family or friends – whatever it takes to help you reach a greater sense of clarity and direction. Utilizing this period of transition can help create powerful changes that will affect you in many positive ways throughout the rest of the year.
03 September: Venus goes Direct in Leo
With Venus now moving forward, we can start to feel our self-confidence and new sense of self-esteem gradually returning. Get ready to book your appointments with the hairdresser, your next cosmetic procedure, and to fill up that shopping cart with some stylish pieces – this is an excellent time to invest in ourselves as we prepare for the coming season. Not only will these small investments boost our confidence even further, they’ll also remind us how great it feels to treat ourselves every once in a while.
04 September: Jupiter goes Retrograde in Taurus
As Jupiter moves back into stubborn Taurus throughout the remainder of the year, we will all start to feel a little uncertain and unsure. During this period it is important that we take time out to reflect on our goals and consider if any adjustments need to be made in order to get our lives back on track. The next few months are an ideal opportunity for making course-correction changes, ensuring that you remain focused and on the path towards your desired outcome.
14 September: New Moon in Libra
As a new season approaches, now is an excellent time to start putting plans into action and making personal improvements. Developing healthy routines, being productive on a daily basis, and taking good care of our physical health are all positive steps towards self-improvement that can help us feel empowered and ready for the upcoming season.
15 September: Mercury goes Direct in Virgo
After the mental and emotional chaos of the retrograde, it is time to take a deep breath, relax, and start organizing our lives again. It’s time to get back on track and tackle our goals with a clear mind and logical thinking. This is an opportunity to reassess priorities, realign ourselves with what we want to achieve, and put in place plans that will help us reach our desired outcomes.
22 September: Sun enters Libra.
As the Sun enters Libra, it brings with it a power of new beginnings and transformation. This marks a time when we can make space for ourselves to explore and love our individuality, while also discovering new ways to move forward with grace. Libra is a sign that focuses on harmony, balance, and finding peace amongst chaos. As we enter this season of the Sun in Libra, take this chance to learn how to flow gently through life’s ebbs and flows – striving for balance and harmony in all aspects of life.
23 September: Mabon. Autumnal Equinox.
As light and dark become equals, it is a time to reflect on our inner light and how we can use it to stand up for ourselves without alienating those close to us. The equinox marks a change in energy – a transition from the warmth of summer to the cooler days of autumn. This seasonal shift offers us an opportunity to pause, reflect and give thanks for the abundance that has been created in the past months.
Mabon is the second Harvest, and a chance to honor Nature’s bounty and the cycles of life that sustain us. At this special time, many practice rituals related to giving thanks for their blessings and preparing for the darkness that comes with winter. With Mabon’s focus on gratitude and balance, it can act as a reminder and guidepost as we move through our lives within Nature’s ever-changing rhythms. Mabon reminds us to be open to transformation even when it’s hard and unpredictable. Let’s use this season as a time to come back into alignment with our truth, honoring whatever paths we are on.
