Greetings, everyone and welcome to the astrological weather report corner at Lunam Love! Here we focus on upcoming astrological events that we feel are the most important ones to note for everyone. These are broken down in a way that is clear and to the point, but expect to see blog posts that go more in depth about specific events in the future!
Here are the five major events for the rest of September 2021:
Venus in Scorpio
From September 10 to October 7, Venus will be in Scorpio. This can be perceived as an intense but powerfully healing time in the realm of matters of the heart. It will also have an influence on financial matters since Venus rules over both areas.
This period of time can potentially lead to some powerful shadow work as a lot of issues around relationships such as jealousy, obsession, and insecurity can rise up and will need to be confronted. Although uncomfortable, it’s important to deal with them in order to move forward and to heal relationships (romantic, platonic, and with the self).
During this time, you may want to do shadow work, heart chakra workings, and working with love deities and spirits.
Mercury Retrograde Shadow
When it comes to any retrograde, there is the shadow period before the retrograde, the retrograde itself, and the post retrograde shadow. People are affected differently by all three events which is why we are noting the mercury retrograde shadow here. Some people may be more affected by this time period than others.
This period of time will last from September 13th to September 27th, when the actual mercury retrograde starts. Think of it as a mini version of retrograde, which may highlight themes that will come up over and over during the mercury retrograde.
During this time, you may want to take notes on where there may be communication issues or breakdowns at work, home, and in your social life. You may also want to make sure that you don’t put off any maintenance for your technology, including your phone, computer, and vehicle. Lastly, you may want to double check travel or event plans.
This month’s full moon will be on September 20th and in the sign of Pisces. This full moon will be taking place during the retrograde shadow period and right before the mercury retrograde, so this is a good time to tune in to this lunar energy in order to prepare.
Because Pisces is a water sign, there will be stronger than usual psychic and spiritual insights during this full moon. Let these insights and strong lunar energies inspire and guide you as you make plans for creating, traveling, financially growing, and dealing with legal matters.
Mabon is a pagan holiday that celebrates the Autumn Equinox and the official start of Autumn. This year it will take place on the 21st, right after the full moon! The day and night are both in equal length, signaling balance. During this time, we celebrate the second part of the harvest festival season and the harvest of fruits and vegetables. It’s a time of giving thanks and expressing gratitude for the blessings that we have received. It’s also a time of reflection, of what we have created and manifested since the beginning of the year.
During this time, you may want to spend time reflecting, giving thanks, and also releasing what no longer serves you so that you can continue to receive blessings.
Mercury retrograde officially begins on the 27th and will go all the way to October 17th. Mercury goes retrograde several times throughout the year, but this is the LAST one of 2021! This last mercury retrograde will be in the sign of Libra, an air sign that is ruled by Venus. Because of this, this retrograde will have more of an emphasis than usual on relationships and communication all across the board. So this is the time to be aware of how you communicate with everyone around you as well as a time of practicing balance in your life. You can use this time to build stronger communication and conflict resolution skills as well as organization skills.
If you have done the work during the shadow period, you’ll have a better understanding of how to navigate the energies during the retrograde.
Hope this snapshot helps you navigate the rest of this month!
