Astrological Energy for September

Happy Birthday, Virgo and Libra!

The Sun is in the sign of Virgo. On September 22nd, the autumnal equinox marks the beginning of fall as the Sun enters Libra. On September 3rd, Mercury in Libra opposes Jupiter in Aries. The polarity created from these planets gives individuals the grace and confidence to express their opinions. However, broadening the mind and understanding different points of view is essential.

Mercury will go retrograde on September 9th and go direct on October 2nd. Anything involving communication, the exchange of information, or technology issues can become disrupted. Individuals may use the retrograde period to reflect upon the past and plan for the future.

With Saturn in Aquarius squaring both Uranus in Taurus and the nodal axis, individuals may reflect upon integrating traditional views with unconventional ideas. To ease tension, clarify personal value systems, reflect upon thoughts regarding body autonomy, and strive to live in greater harmony with nature. As a collective, karmic lessons regarding these themes may arise.

Virgo Season

Virgo is a mutable earth sign ruled by the planet Mercury. It supports a healthy lifestyle, attention to detail, and humility. Virgo inspires radical self-acceptance and finding work that resonates with the soul.

Virgo calls individuals to honestly evaluate the reality of any situation and strive to create the ideal. Virgo purifies and, with great precision, performs the work to achieve improvement. To that end, Virgo seeks perfection, which drives a desire to grow, evolve, and change. However, perfection is not the goal. Virgo engages in self-analysis to achieve a personal best. Let acceptance of the present moment and self-love guide the process of evolution.

Beyond self-improvement, Virgo inspires mastering meaningful and helpful skills. In turn, these skills will lead to fulfilling work that serves others. Service ignites soul evolution and is an evolutionary aim for Virgo.

To activate Virgo energy, study with experienced teachers, polish skills, get certified, and share wisdom teachings. Prioritize daily wellness routines. Offer the gift of a soulful service to the world.

Evolutionary Astrology

As we gaze upon the night sky, watch the sunrise and sunset, or contemplate the ocean depths, with certainty, the majesty and the mystery of the cosmos can take our breath away. Yet, we are composed of stardust. Current scientific research has found that the human body consists of ninety-seven percent of the same atoms as our galaxy and shares most elements with the stars.

 Miraculously, we are in connection with this great mystery. The heartbeat and rhythm of life vibrate within us, travels through us, and extends far beyond into the universe. Our vibration, light-body, and soul connect us to the stars and the planets. Learning how these energies interact is revealed through your astrological natal chart.

When you took your first breath, the celestial bodies formed a map in the sky. The sacred art of Evolutionary Astrology will help you work with the mystical symbolism within this map and guide you toward evolution in this lifetime.

Astrology Basics

Astrology’s rich symbolism displayed on your natal chart offers a depth of knowledge and insight into the many facets of life. In simple terms, a natal chart is composed of twelve astrological houses representing theatres of life. Within these houses lie the planets. Each planet symbolizes a particular structure of the mind. Additionally, each planet is motivated by one of the twelve zodiac signs. The zodiac sign determines the needs and strategies that direct that planet. As we dive deeper into the natal chart, the planets form a web of geometrical angles called aspects. The geometry created by the aspects provide significant insights into the human psyche. 

Healing Pathways of Evolutionary Astrology

As a healing tool, Evolutionary Astrology is powerful. The astrological energy patterns provide clear insight into your current life circumstances. Understanding these energetic patterns can help raise your self-awareness, show you how to utilize your gifts to your best advantage, and manifest the life you envision.

Evolutionary Astrology as a Tool for Healing:

  • The foundation of Evolutionary Astrology is the belief in the evolution of the soul. All souls have a unique and special purpose.
  • A professional astrological consultation provides insight into your karma, past lives, ancestry, and areas where your soul can evolve, heal, and grow in this lifetime. It can help highlight optimal mental and emotional patterns and unveil motivations that deplete energy.
  • Evolutionary Astrology does not focus on prediction. It emphasizes freedom. All individuals are in control and free to make their own choices.
  • Evolutionary Astrology raises many intimate and spiritual questions. Your natal chart guides you toward the answers to these questions, your dharma, and your evolutionary aim in life.
  • Evolutionary Astrology offers support in creating a life of visionary thinking, healing, and happiness.

An Evolutionary Astrological consultation offers a holistic view of the human psyche and soul. It integrates all of the astrological symbolism into coherent themes unique to the individual. For example, many people may have their Sun in Aries, their Moon in Gemini, and their Ascendant in Libra. However, these symbols will tell different stories in different astrological charts depending upon the other symbolism within the chart.

The benefit of receiving a personal astrological consultation is that the themes within your chart are specific to you. The energetic patterns present in your natal chart can help you become more discerning and make choices that support your goals and well-being. Furthermore, Evolutionary Astrology can help expand your consciousness. From a spiritual perspective, it provides keys that unlock the door to lessons and challenges, leading to strength, wisdom, and communion with the divine. These keys can broaden your perspective to the many opportunities available to create your best life.

By reflecting upon the astrological energy within your chart, you will discover your sacred mission. As you continue to work with astrological energies, you may experience a series of synchronicities. These seemingly random events appear to illuminate your journey. Most importantly, Evolutionary Astrology can help you interact with the world harmoniously and hear your soul calling. As you listen to the voice of your soul, you will continue to evolve and thrive.

Surfing the endless waves of consciousness, unbound by space and time, is pure Pisces. Pisces is the mystic in all of us that seeks to feel one with the Divine Source.
