When we begin September, change is already in the air with the Sun/Jupiter in Virgo and Neptune/Chiron in Pisces. Then on September 18, Saturn moves back into Mutable Sagittarius, then on the 12th we experience a Solar Eclipse in Virgo at 20 degrees and then Mars moves into Virgo on the 24/25. So that tells the Mutable Signs side of the story. (I'll cover the Solar Eclipse in Virgo in another post).
We're not through with the Cardinal Signs yet, since Uranus, still Retrograde backtracks closer into a square with Pluto (which goes direct on the 25th at 12 degrees). So by the end of the month, we have a Cardinal T-Cross highlighted by the Lunar Eclipse in Aries and of course, Mercury RX joins up in two Cardinal T-Crosses and eclipses which is going to tests our communication skills to the max. Meanwhile, when all of this planetary fireworks takes place in the sky, children and young adults are heading back to school, while other people are coming out of the vacation mode, at least in the Northern Hemisphere. But now we're sucked up in a twister and spit out in the Land of Weird.

What were also seeing with these transits is that Saturn now in Sagittarius is now moving into a square with Neptune which will grow tighter until the exact square in November. Also in November the North Node moves out of Libra into Virgo, as I have mentioned in earlier posts. Now from Jupiter through Pluto, all the outer planets are either in Mutable or Cardinal Signs and both of these qualities are about tossing out the status quo and usher in enormous changes on all levels. With Jupiter out of Leo (sigh of relief from this astrologer) and into Virgo, we're going to move into a damage-control mode to assess what a year of lazy and pleasure-seeking behavior has done to the planet.
But all the tension aside, if you're someone with a lot of Mutable planets, now is your time to shine. Now is your time to lead the way, teach, inspire, travel, and report what's happening in the world and walk your path of service. Now, when I'm talking service, I mean using your unique talents to spread healing and love in the world. If you have many planets or prominent points of your chart in Cardinal Signs then you're still acting as the fire-starter knocking down the Patriarchal system and building new structure that is based on equality and then restoring balance, especially with planets in Libra. It's time to speak your truth, practice integrity, and implement solutions to problems without waiting for the green light first which would take eons to happen. It's time to step out of the old-style corporate arena (which doesn't value human life or the planet), and forge a career as entrepreneurs with products and services that heal the planet.
Let's feed our souls by feeding the hungry and let's clean up our daily routine by cleaning pollution from the earth. That's the themes of the double t-crosses and eclipses.

The new energy is that we all deserve good just because we're on this planet and are children of a vast Universe. Unconditional love is around us at all times if only we acknowledge it and that is what Neptune in Pisces does for us. So I'm a bit nervous about these upcoming transits as any sane person would be, but I'm also excited about the changes coming down the pike. I'm Cancerian so I understand where the woman in my image is coming from because I don't enjoy tossing stuff out. But how many of us can wear two pairs of shoes at the same time? Are we going to keep walking in the old pair of shoes or are we going to embark in a new direction wearing the Ruby slippers?

Do you want to know where you fit into this Soul Mastery initiation? I'll be giving 3 to 4 month transit readings this autumn (just because there's too much happening transit-wise to do full reports). And I'll be giving other types of readings too including Solar Returns (I highly recommend SR chart readings for anyone born from September through December).
