SOLAR ECIPSESeptember is a big month with the solar eclipse on September 1st at 14 degrees of Leo. The luminaries, the Sun and the Moon will both be in the sign of Leo bringing about this eclipse.
Leo is a sign that deals with people in the public. You may remember the previous newsletter explaining that Leo deals with authority. People who come before the public, and that can be politicians, presidents, actors, actresses, dictators, etc. Eclipses always bring to the forefront
something that has gone unnoticed before. This eclipse should be quite enlightening in regards to government and people who hold powerful offices in our land. If you have planets near 14 degrees of Leo, expect to have something revealed to you. Try to avoid making any changes 5 days either side of the solar eclipse (9/1) and the lunar eclipse (9/16). To add to this confusion, Mercury will be retrograde most of September and that increases the likelihood of having misunderstandings.

September begins with Mercury in Virgo, it’s place of exaltation. Mercury turned retrograde on 8/30. Retrograde periods as you may know, mean that its time to review. We have missed something that is vitally important. Mercury’s domain is vast and a very important one, ruling over all communications. While Mercury is retrograde it is best to delay making any technical purchases. Delay car purchases if possible and signing of important documents. Mercury will always cause some kind of snafu that will end up being a problem. Check your emails before sending, it’s very easy to have misunderstandings during this time. The house that Virgo represents for you is where Mercury is retrograde. On 9/10 Mercury will retrograde all the way back into the sign of Leo again. You see, Leo (highly visible people) continues to be a center of focus both for the eclipse and Mercury retrograde. All this signaling is a reminder to watch the information that is coming your way during this time. On 9/22, Mercury will turn direct at 22 degrees of Leo.But it will not move into Virgo again until 10/4. As it remains in Virgo for most of September and in forward motion, this is where the rubber meets the road, as they say. Mercury moving direct and operating at its best strength will be in a better position. That would be the time to move ahead with any technical products you wish to buy. Green lights on signing documents and overall communications can now move ahead.

The lunar eclipse will follow the solar eclipse on September 16th at 29 degrees of Aquarius. Lunar eclipses have more of an inward affect on us. Lunar pertaining to the “moon” and is more about how we are feeling. Information that is revealed during this time will affect our mood and our emotions.The lunar eclipse will occur in the USA’s 3rd house of communications. Humanitarian and charitable organizations will find their way into the news. Even the news is in the news, but do pay special attention to information that is coming out now. Pricing of food, oil, pharmaceuticals are all reason to pay attention. Neptune is a planet connected to drugs and the pharmaceutical industry as well as the oil industry. This is the place where Ketu and Neptune are currently transiting and they are considered to be conjunct. Both can create voids. Or a feeling that something is lacking.
Certainly the lunar eclipse will expose what has been covered up to now. However, we can expect something more to be revealed. Two areas of major concern for the month of September is that the U.S. will be giving up its oversight of the Internet. This will dramatically affect how much information we receive and how much comes to us unedited and unaltered. How will this affect freedom of speech in our country? Another area of concern is the U.S. dollar and how long it will remain being the currency of the world. Do the words “global currency” come to your mind? Either one of these will have an enormous impact on us all. Saturn’s transit through Scorpio has kept information secret. Saturn rules both the USA’s money house and its communication. Again, this eclipse should expose and bring to light, what has been hidden in the past.

On September 18th, Mars the planet of action and energy will move out of it’s own sign of Scorpio and into the sign of Sagittarius. Mars has had its energy very much affected by Saturn since moving into Scorpio on 7/13. I have had numerous people tell me how they have felt blocked and unable to move ahead. This had everything to do with Mars and Saturn whose speciality is “blockade”. Mars and Saturn are 2 malefics that are not friends to each other. They have quite opposite agendas. So if you are Capricorn, Aquarius, Aries, or Scorpio you have felt this
blocking intensively! Now, you may feel as if you have been freed from this powerful grip! For Mars moving into Sagittarius is moving into a friend sign! Indeed, this is especially good news for Aries and Scorpio who have endured enormous pressures from the Mars/Saturn conjunction. I have no doubt that Mars squaring with Mercury on 9/12 will release some kind of information. The Sun will also be conjunct Mercury at that time. Expect more revelations around politicians, as if there has not already been enough!

One very nice combination I have noticed is that Jupiter, Mercury and Venus will all be together in the sign of Virgo. This trio is made up of all benefics and is called a Saraswati yoga. Saraswati is the Goddess of Learning and is a yoga that will help both teachers and students. It is excellent for speaking and writing. What a great benefit to both teachers and students at the beginning of the school year. And it is also helps to promote people in the arts such as, musicians, actors and actresses. If you are connected to any of these fields, this yoga will enhance your skills and make it an enjoyable time.
Virgo is a sign that is very concerned with health matters. Vitamins, pharmaceuticals, and natural products will be highlighted. Look for homeopathy and naturopathy to become topics of increased interest. If you have a workout regimen, it is a good time to review it, while Mercury is retrograde and then make the corrections when Mercury moves direct on 9/22. Virgo is a sign that is comfortable dealing with details. They love to help people make the correction.

At the end of September, I am planning to make an important announcement. Of course, I am waiting for Mercury to go direct! And eclipse season to have passed. So please stay tuned for my upcoming announcement!
