RUNE OF THE MONTH: Fehu “cattle, wealth”. This month, we are required to examine our resources with care. Do we use them well? Do they go to waste? Are our finances in order or are we tied by debts? Does our income match how much we spend? Are we able to save? A good measure of abundance is to always save 10% of everything we earn and give 10% to charity, which leaves us with 80% to use for our daily needs and enjoy.

Mercury turns retrograde on Friday 9/9 at 8:38 PM till October 2, from 8º55’ Libra to 24º41’ Virgo. Its shadow period remains until October 17. While technology has the tendency to break down, appointments are forgotten, confusion sets in, message are erased, trips are postponed and general mayhem happens, when Mercury is retrograde we also remember projects we had forgotten, people we hadn’t seen in a while re-emerge, and we reconnect with places we hadn’t been to in a long time. With this particular retrogradation a long-lost relationship could resurface, we could complete studies we had abandoned, and investigate deeper topics related to health and nutrition.
Pluto remains retrograde until October 8. Its shadow period remains until January 30, 2023. The degree traveled in September (26º26’-26º08’ Capricorn) is represented in the Sabian Symbols by the following image: “A mountain pilgrimage”. Heights are reached through personal effort and spiritual integrity. World leaders who thought no one would ever notice their underhanded activities are being exposed. In these end times, darkness, corruption, lies, and dishonesty are no longer tolerated. A huge purge is occurring all over the world, revealing and gradually transforming all that is selfish and evil.
Saturn remains retrograde until October 22nd. Its shadow period extends until January 27, 2023. The degrees traveled in September (20º38’-19º02’ Aquarius) are represented by the following images: “A woman disappointed and disillusioned, courageously facing a seemingly empty life” and “A large white dove bearing a message”. Outer limitations encourage us to draw upon our innate wisdom. Whatever circumstances we are dealt, we have enough inner resources to create serenity and happiness. Let us manifest in our personal life, the reality we want to see in the world.
Jupiter remains retrograde this whole month until Wednesday November 23rd. Its shadow period continues until February 15, 2023. The degrees covered in September (6º53’-3º16’ Aries) are symbolized by: “A man successfully expressing himself in two realms at once”, “A square brightly lighted on one side”, “A triangle with wings”, and “Two lovers strolling through a secluded walk”. Despite lockdowns, extreme limitations, threats to our financial health, the more we place our trust in our innermost resources, the more we can rise beyond the manipulations that would have us paralyzed in fear. This is not a time of becoming the slaves of a dark matrix, but of personal new beginnings fueled with hope and vision.
Neptune is still retrograde until December 3rd with a shadow period remaining until March 25, 2023. The degrees traveled in September (24º28’-23º40’ Pisces) are symbolized by: “The purging of the priesthood” and “A materializing medium giving a séance”. As the news tell us of one reality and its exact opposite, as confusion reigns, as lies are passed as truth while truth is being debunked, as what is good is made to be bad and evil pretends to be good, we only have our inner spiritual perceptions to rely on. If something doesn’t feel right, it simply isn’t. We need to trust our intuition to help us find clarity in the fog created by the medias and all the corruption ruling the world.
Uranus remains retrograde this whole month until January 21, 2023. Its shadow period remains until May 9, 2023. The degree traveled in September (18º54’-18º24’ Taurus) is represented by: “A new continent rising out of the ocean”. Finances are shifting, our relationship to Nature is also changing. As we create a new, healthier understanding of money, and honor Mother Earth with increased consciousness, a new reality emerges from the rubbles of all that-is-not that is gradually destroying itself.

This month’s intentional meditation starts on Saturday 9/10. Let us take out as many blank sheets of paper as we have intentions and place them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they basked in the light of the Full Moon in Pisces at exactly 2:59 AM. Once that moment passes, let us gather our Full Moon charged blank sheets and place them in a folder.
On Sunday 9/25, take out your blank full moon charged papers and write on each a concise, positive intention. Place them on a balcony, in a garden or near a window so that they are out by exactly 2:55 PM for the New Moon in Libra. Once that moment has passed, staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams….

Thursday 9/1: Mars Sextile Jupiter (4:52 AM)
A wonderful day of opportunities for travel, sports, or learning. We are adventurous, feel positive and are ready to take on challenges that bring expansion. New, dynamic ventures help create financial abundance.
Friday 9/2: Mercury Opposition Jupiter (6:49 PM)
Today, we might promise more than we can deliver, speak too much and have unrealistic expectations. In our over-enthusiasm, we might commit indiscretions. Business transactions or legal affairs may prove more costly than expected.
Sunday 9/4: Venus enters Virgo (9:05 PM) till 9/29
During the next 3 weeks, we express our love in practical ways. Offering a toaster may feel more loving than a flowers or a romantic letter. We show our emotions through selfless service and value physical and spiritual cleanliness.
Friday 9/9: Mercury turns retrograde (8:38 PM) till 10/2
Kindly refer to the paragraph below.
Sunday 9/11: the Sun Trine Uranus (6:09 AM)
A day to expect the unexpected. We could feel somewhat rebellious. Breaking away from a stale routine feels particularly attractive. Plans change. Disruptions occur. New ideas bring freedom. We are drawn to free-spirited people who walk to the sound of their own drummer.
Friday 9/16: Venus Square Mars (11:49 AM), Sun Opposition Neptune (3:21 PM)
Social harmony could be disrupted. A love relationship is likely to suffer from too much moodiness, impatience, and/or lack of honesty. Our idealization of a romance clashes with truth. A day to take it easy and have as realistic expectations as possible.
Sunday 9/18: Mercury Opposition Jupiter (3:34 PM), Sun Trine Pluto (8:58 PM)
For Mercury Opposition Jupiter, kindly refer to 9/2. Our leadership abilities are particularly strong today. Our self-confidence, natural authority, and dignity inspire respect and elicit positive responses from others. Serving the highest good of all involved prompts cooperation.
Monday 9/19: Venus Trine Uranus (9:44 PM)
Our social life is varied and exciting. We are drawn to all sorts of people, and enjoy a newfound popularity. Love and friendship are intertwined. In an effort to balance intimacy and freedom, we could explore a dynamic relationship paradigm that is particularly freeing.
Thursday 9/22: the Sun enters Libra (6:04 PM) till 10/23, Sun Conjunct Mercury (11:50 PM)
During the coming month, we seek harmony, peace, and balance. Relationships are more important to us than usual. We are attracted to fashion, colors, art and beauty in general. Today, more specifically, communication flows. An excellent day for writing e-mails, making phone calls, and sharing our ideas in ways that prove convincing.
Friday 9/23: Mercury enters Virgo (5:04 AM) till 10/10
During the next 3 weeks, we are attentive to details. Our thinking is practical. We are organized, orderly, and specific. We prefer facts and figures to generalities. An excellent time to study. We are more concerned with health and nutrition than usual.
Saturday 9/24: Venus Opposition Neptune (1:51 AM)
We could romanticize a relationship that is not all that it appears to be. Lies, deceit and half-truths could make us be in love with love, rather than with the truth of a person. Discrimination is advised. We should also beware of scammers today who wave financial promises aimed at robbing us of what we earned. A day best spent watching a feel-good movie, reading an inspiring book, or resting.
Sunday 9/25: Venus Trine Pluto (10:46 PM)
A relationship begun today has an unparalleled passion and intensity. Today’s transit gives us the ability to change bad habits and heal an old emotional wound. Serene compliance helps us bring harmony to a group situation.
Monday 9/26: Mercury Conjunct Venus (10:59 AM), Sun Opposition Jupiter (12:33 PM)
Communications are pleasant and harmonious. Let us just be careful as our excessiveness and over enthusiasm could lead us to promise a lot more than we can possibly deliver. A social event may require us to dress well and act with dignity and elegance.
Tuesday 9/27: Mercury Trine Pluto (5:56 AM), Mars Trine Saturn (10:49 PM)
We have the ability to X-ray situations and people. This transit encourages deep studies, especially of a metaphysical or scientific nature. We are drawn to mysteries and probing into the occult. Drawing upon our wisdom, we make the best of limitations, finding freedom within imposed boundaries.
Thursday 9/29: Venus enters Libra (12:49 AM) till 10/23
During the coming 3 weeks, we seek harmonious, equal relationships. A perfect time to establish good business partnerships and for a make-over. We are drawn to nice clothes, beauty treatments, pampering ourselves, and making ourselves more attractive. Artists are favored.
Wishing you a wonderful month of September!
In Loving Light.
