“Retro season, to serve others is to serve yourself.”
We’re in Virgo season, with Virgos lovely mutable energy enabling us to be of service to dreams, and ideas that seem to have been lost through the recent strident astrological energies. And with all the outer planets retrograde, they really are supporting us in a kind of ‘back to school’ way of thinking. There’s a mix of energies this month making life seem a lot easier than it has for a while.
This month gives us the chance to pick up the threads of our life’s tapestry that has grown dusty on the shelf.
It’s time to reconnect, clear out outworn ideas and beliefs. To give attention to the details of our daily routines. To find more streamlined ways to manage our busy lives, and busy minds. To take time out and look forward to the Libra energy arriving on the 23rd, that will set us up with fairness and a better balance in our lives.
Mercury rules Virgo, hence the analytical abilities of the Virgo mind and energy. The shadow side can be too much attention to detail, and pedantic ruminating so that nothing gets finished or moves forward. Retrograde Saturn makes a helpful trine to Mercury this month, adding structure and thought to our dealings with others, especially in close relationships. On the 27th, Mercury moves retrograde in Libra until the 18th October. So plenty of time this month to use the Virgo mind to tidy up loose ends with paperwork, or nowadays, what seems to be mainly electronic paperwork. And make sure, before Mercury’s retrograde phase, that all your electric appliances are functioning well with services completed, and that includes cars. Check tickets for travel and timings, as Mercury retrograde has a way of making us a bit vague. The positive side of retrograde Mercury is second chances to catch up with projects and ideas that have been shelved.
Venus is in Libra, whom she rules bringing balance and harmony, certainly for the first 11 days when she is trined by retrograde Jupiter in Aquarius, bringing an abundance of luck to relationships then she moves into Scorpio where she becomes much more stormy and hot, so a chance for some late summer passion.
The New Moon on the 7th in Virgo, brings a sense of freedom and opportunities to fulfil new dreams.
With Mars in Virgo until mid month, finding itself in opposition to retrograde Neptune in Pisces. We may find a sense of urgency with people keen on pursuing their dreams, and kicking back at anyone or anything that stands in their way.
However retrograde Uranus in Taurus also makes a helpful trine to the Sun in Virgo this month. Bringing more surprising breakthroughs on the health front. Whilst retrograde Pluto in Capricorn, this month, squares Venus in Libra so we may see relationships in the public eye go through tough times. And retrograde Pluto, also trines, which is helpful, Mars in Virgo, bringing rapid positive change again, possibly connected with the health system and medicines.
The Autumn Equinox on the 22nd coincides with this months Full Moon in Pisces, which is on the 20th/21st. This is the harvest moon or corn moon, and with both Mars and Neptune involved in this lunar event there will be a sense of tension as a determination for transparency and truth in general is fought for.
