September Oracle – Discover How to Build a Stronger Foundation

Summary: 

2020 has been trying and here we are in its 9th month, tired and weary, and just in time as the energies pull you back to pause and take a breath. You’ve reached the summit and realize its only base camp, but that’s okay. Replenish yourself this month to gear up for the rest of your life beginning in December. You’ll relish this quieter time if you see it as positive instead of negative. 

I’ll be going LIVE on Tuesday morning at 10:00 am ET to talk about all of it. Power Up Your Prosperity in the True KLT group. 

Days: 

Better days: 9/1, 9/3, 9/4, 9/5, 9/6, 9/13, 9/14, 9/17, 9/22

Days to tread softly: 9/2, 9/4 (not a typo – it’s both), 9/9, 9/11, 9/15, 9/18, 9/19, 9/21, 9/25, 9/27, 9/28, 9/29

Goals: 

  • Get all the things done in the first week. 
  • After that, be patient. 
  • Go inward to reflect and devise an excellent self-care regiment.  
  • Make plans, strategize and take stock. 
  • Make adjustments as necessary.  
  • Strengthen your foundation.  

Tarot:

The Tarot card for September is the Harvest – Nine of Worlds. 

This is an ending and beginning card signaling the end of one cycle and the beginning of the next one. You’ve been hard at work and now is the time of culmination. Ensure you’ve completed everything you set out to do. Go past the finish line. 

Build the basis for the next cycle to make all of your dreams come true. 

Weekly Energies:

Astrologically, there are 4 big forces this month – Mars moving into retrograde position on the 9th, Jupiter and Saturn stationing direct on the 13th and 29th respectively and Mars confronting Saturn again on the 29th. This month sets up the next 2 to round out 2020’s birthing of a new era. 

Astronomically, Earth is passing between Mars and the Sun in an elegant cyclic dance that happens every two years, however Mars also has his own dance with the Sun. In 2018, Mars and the Earth came close while Mars was his closest to the Sun, making this the first time since 2003. This year, Earth and Mars will be the closest on October 6th, but is bright in the night sky until then. Enjoy!

Week 1: Get Things Done!

September begins with yummy energy helping you feel charismatic and influential. Reach out to others for powerful communication and connection. It’s also a great time for discovery and research. (Mercury trine Pluto Rx)

Full Moon: Your Role in the World.

On September 2nd, the Moon reaches her full opposition point at 1:23 am EDT. She’s in Pisces while the Sun’s in Virgo, each asking you to accept yourself and the world in which you live wholly and completely. This is both personal and universal and is directly in line with the “Yes, but…” conversations I’ve been having on my FB business page on Thursdays. It’s all about holding the expansive space of infinite possibility with the practicalities of daily life and all of the tension it involves and the almost impossible commitment it entails. 

On this same day, there are 2 other influences affecting this Sun-Moon opposition, one supportive and the other conflicting. First the confrontation that complicates friendships, love and finance. This energy triggers feelings of inadequacy due to lack of attention, appreciation and acknowledgment. These are typically wounds from authority figures, particularly parents that get a zing right now. It’s an opportunity for you to learn to love yourself. Forgive yourself for the past and fully enjoy and appreciate yourself now. 

In the outer world, prepare for healing by paying off debts literally and figuratively. It’s also a good time to plan home renovations or redesigning to beautify your home or office. (Venus opposition Saturn Rx)

The supportive energy brings insight and discovery. You have feelings of self-confidence about trying new things or new people. Be careful not to shed old things or people that are still aligned with you, even though they feel uncomfortable right now. Embrace the new WHILE healing any inner discomfort from the former. This is the time to see the true value in all areas of your life. (Sun trine Uranus Rx)

The next day, everything administrative feels good right now. Make plans, schedule events, negotiate, sign contracts and finish up anything you’ve been putting off these last few weeks. (Mercury trine Saturn Rx)

On the 4th, there are 3 configurations that make this day both good and a tad complicated. Firstly, healthy relationships feel delicious as this transit boosts your passion and stimulates excitement. In less than healthy ones, tension and conflict arises with a fight for control. Avoid conflict by working out or being creative. Find a positive outlet for your excess sexual energy. (Venus square Mars)

Secondly, make adjustments to your thoughts about moving forward on projects and work. You want to push ahead, but deep down inside you know you need to wait. Revisit your design, fortify your plans and attend to the details. (Mercury quincunx Mars)

Lastly, you feel sexy and yearn for social activity. You have the charm to satisfy all of your connections and make them a success. This transit typically occurs twice a year, but this year, it’s occurred 4 times. This is the 3rd one with the next in mid-October. (Mercury sextile Venus)

The next day, your thoughts move into harmonious terrain as you long for beauty, elegance and sophistication. Make peace with your mind and let your heart’s desires lead. Your mind actually wants to slow down and savor. (Mercury ingres Libra)

On the last day of the week, your feelings get a lift into joy from the sensitive and nurturing ones. It’s a time for love, fun and expressing yourself creatively. You may want a new style to step out with more flair and swagger. (Venus ingres Leo)

Week 2: Be mindful.

On the 9th, the first of the big guns of the month occurs. Mars stations retrograde until November 14th. Mars is in Aries, his own sign and amplifies the impact.  Feelings of uncertainty reach an all-time high about your role in the world, at work and in relationships.  This Mars retrograde is one for the books as this is the first time in 32 years Mars has gone retrograde in his own sign of Aries.  

When Mars appears to go backward in the sky, he affects your energy level, your passion and any forward motion in work and play. Expect your energy level to drop and you’ll have no obvious momentum in life mission or passionate stimulation in relationships. Self-care is key and introspection is your vehicle. Plan, organize and get things together behind the scenes. Focus on what you truly want, but don’t make any lasting changes until this retrograde has passed. I’ll be diving as deeply into this as I’ve done for the March Saturn in Aquarius and Mars in 2020 articles. Stay tuned early next week. They’ll be a LIVE too. 😘

Also on this day, good feelings and optimism arise, so take advantage of this good fortune by taking action. It may be the last day to do so for the next handful of weeks. (Sun trine Jupiter Rx)

On September 11th, deception and confusion come to the fore. If it seems too good to be true, it is. Be discerning. Drop into your heart space before making any lasting decisions. (Sun opposition Neptune Rx)

On the 12th, push ideas beyond their limits.  Intuit and reach into your knowing in new and unexpected ways. The revelations may surprise you. I would set extra time aside for meditation as the connections may be surprising. (Mercury quincunx Uranus Rx)

Jupiter stations direct on the 13th after spending 4 months in retrospection. Your philosophy of life’s meaning and what it means to be successful has undergone review these last handful of months. Hopefully your inner compass has been realigned with your brightest future. 

The last day of the 2nd week brings influential and appealing energies. You may be recognized for your efforts by those in position of power and authority. Yum. (Sun trine Pluto Rx)

Week 3: Take stock.

There’s a bid for freedom in relationships on the 15th. Any closeness feels chafing and any compromise seems stifling. Take heed before spending your way through this energy and overindulging too much. Get creative instead. (Venus square Uranus Rx)

New Moon: Recognition.

On the 17th, the Moon stills along with the Sun at exactly 7:00 am EDT in the practically universal sign of Virgo in harmony with Saturn Rx. Long awaited recognition for all of your hard work becomes obvious. You deserve it. Take this respite and redefine your intentions for the remainder of 2020. Set them to manifest magically for you with this new Moon. (Sun trine Saturn Rx)

Pay attention to the details as your broad view of the world masks them in your enthusiasm to bring anything to fruition. Be mindful of how to communicate and keep your high-flying self-importance to a minimum. This is a good transit for your self-confidence as long as you stay firmly footed in reality.  (Mercury square Jupiter)

The 18th is a kaleidoscope of shifting colors making new shapes and patterns. Turn your thoughts and perceptions this way and that for different perspectives and points of view. (Mercury quincunx Neptune Rx)

What excites you? Expect changes in the definition of your passions and desires on the 19th.  You’re maturing and so are your tastes. Let go of those that no longer fit. (Sun quincunx Mars Rx)

On the 21st, don’t get carried away with extremist thinking as Pluto loves to take things to the edge by plunging head first into anything objectionable, namely the underbelly of humanity. Stay in your lane and dive deeply into your own truth. This is an opportunity to investigate your relationship with your inner soul, not to defend wild theories to avoid introspection. This transit is hitting 3 times in 3 months and most importantly hits exact on November 2nd – the day before the US general election.  I’ve been waiting for the right moment to post my findings for that day. Stay tuned later this week. (Mercury square Pluto Rx) 

Week 4: Balance.  

Happy Equinox Celebration! It’s the kick off of a new season, so let’s celebrate with a 3-day festival! I’m inviting you to my True KLT group to join the fun. You’ll see a light-hearted take on the weekly power tip emails to get you into the spirit of the festival. Stay tuned for all the things. 😉

Happy Birthday Libra. The day equals night on September 22nd. This is about balance. What’s in balance for you? What’s out of balance? It’s time to bring everything into alignment. Use Libra’s energy to help you. (Sun ingres Libra)

Also on the Equinox, make adjustments and course corrections in love and finance. You can make successful strides by planning accordingly after a full review. (Venus quincunx Jupiter)

The week continues to be active with energetic forces from the 23rd to the 28th, culminating with the biggest ones on the 29th. The month reaches a crescendo to launch October’s rehash of August-like energy.  

On September 23rd, you have the chance to see things for what they truly are, especially relationships in love, business and even friendships. Take note of any imbalances and determine how you want to address them.  (Venus quincunx Neptune Rx)

Also on this day, take your time in completing tasks and double-check your work. Take care while communicating with others – this is a time ripe with misunderstandings. This influence is your first hint of the Mercury retrograde October season. (Mercury square Saturn Rx)

On the 24th, be patient and relax as everything’s going to be taken out of context. Take a deep breath when dealing with aggravating people or situations. Don’t let them get the better of you.  (Mercury opposition Mars Rx)

On September 26th, explore the underpinnings of self-love and take a few days to do it. Think about how you’ve gained awareness about yourself, then examine your self-care routines. Finally, discover fun and creative ways to love yourself. (Venus quincunx Pluto Rx)

Here it is on the 27th, the next step foreshadowing the Mercury retrograde plunge next month. This is an additional sprinkling of what’s in store for the next 6 weeks. Your thoughts turn to the unfamiliar with intensity not seen in almost a year. You want to know everything about the secret, hidden and until yet, unattainable. Be wary of drama or emotional outbursts. Don’t your intentions be swayed by other’s immaturity. (Mercury ingres Scorpio)

Undergo a bit of surgery in the areas of your budget of time, resource and money on the 28th. Any tweaks pay off 10-fold. (Venus quincunx Saturn Rx)

Saturn stations direct on September 29th after four long months.  Your re-evaluation period weighing your responsibilities and how you expend your authority has come to an end. You’ve been in this energy since May 11th. How has it gone? Do you feel you’ve reset your responsibility and authority matrix? 

There are 2 more influences on this day. The first one would typically be a positive impact on your love life and may still be if you enter into it tenderly and compassionately. Your love life has absorbed a series of hits this month. Relax and breathe. Make space to deepen your love, creative pursuits or self-care routines. (Venus trine Mars Rx)

Take a protective stance on what’s important to you now. This is the same energy, but backward from what you experienced on August 24th and positions you for the next round on January 13, 2021. Don’t defend defiantly. Softly, but strongly position yourself firmly for whatever comes next. (Mars Rx square Saturn)

Monthly Stone:

Seek connection with the monthly stone Lazulite.

Lazulite comes from the Latin word, Lazanward, meaning Heaven. This stone uplifts you with positive spiritual energies. 

Additionally, it balances your chakras and aligns your thoughts with your feelings.  While this stone eases your mind, it brings you a deep sense of inner peace. Your imagination and intuition are heightened, so you can find answers to questions that have been eluding you. 

This crystal assists with true life purpose. It opens the mind and connects to the heart and soul. This stone gives you insights and guides you to the answers about every area of your life. 

To ground this energy, pair with Hematite and Covelite. Hematite helps pull this energy down to Earth, while Covelite bridges the physical and spiritual realms.

September is a month of build-up in pressure if you look at the hold-ups as negative. However, if you lean into the standstill and treat it as a plateau for review and adjustment, you’ll be much better positioned for the remainder of 2020 and 2021. 

Thank you for reading and sharing with friends. 

Remember, you are loved beyond measure,

Brilliance: Intuitive Knowing & Purpose Lunar Cycle

Sept Full Moon – How to Welcome Good Fortune Today

Summary: 

There is so much contained in this Full Moon energy. You can feast on it for days. I’ve taken a slightly different approach by including the energetic influences with their corresponding recommendations, so you can pick and choose. (If it were me, I would print out and circle those that jumped out at me. But, I’m old school, so do whatever works for you.)

I’ll be going LIVE in my True KLT group on Wednesday at 10:00 am ET to talk about the underlying forces and overall impacts as well as to lead scrumptious meditation. 

Tarot: 

This Full Moon Tarot card is the Sage of Cups – Regenerator. 

You’ve ridden the waves of your inner life, dealt with stagnation and are finding fulfillment in new ways. You’ve mastered how to negotiate emotional waters and generate new life vitality though joyousness.

Toast yourself. There’s happiness in growth. 

Relish it. 

Numerology: 

This Full Moon has a 7 and 10 energy combination. 

The Moon reaches maximum with Venus, Saturn and the karmic nodes at 25° (2+5 = 7). While the Sun, Moon and Uranus are at 10°. 

The 7 is the past and present and the 10 is the future. This is excellent as the 7 is a mastery number, reminding you to take stock of your current position, while the 10 is all about fortune. 

Yum. 

Astrological Energies: 

You come into this Full Moon refreshed by powerful and influential connections.  You feel charismatic and creative allowing the Virgo Sun to push you to get to the task at hand. 

When the Pisces Moon opposes the Sun in her full position, it’s 1:23 am EDT. I love the 1-2-3, as in “Let’s go.” This is the energy of the entire week. 

Diving into the expression of the lunar-solar opposition, Pisces and Virgo come to the fore with Virgo outshining Pisces, but Pisces reaching into the Sun and pulling out all of his manifestation that may yet still be hidden.  

I love the unifying influence of these two signs. Virgo is feminine while the Sun is masculine and Pisces and the Moon are both yin, making this Full Moon 3 parts inner reflection and one part outer creation. With the energy of “Let’s go”, this provides opportunity to bring your whole self into the equation of all of your activities this week.

Speak with your whole self, reach out to others with your heart and connect to your passionate work without guilt or compromise. This is alignment with integrity. Your heart and soul step forward and take the reins allowing your mind to fall back and perceive. This is an excellent for strategizing, planning and intending as well as doing. (For me, as a strategist and intuitive, this is the stuff of dreams!)

The best question to ask right now is: “What is my best pathway forward to embrace my maximum potential for the future of my dreams?” 

Here are the opportunities for you during this Full Moon time. Choose those that speak to you. 

New possibility is here. It’s as if your future is standing right in front of you. How will you invite it into your life? 

  • Be bold and confident to say YES to moving forward. 
  • Shed the behaviors and patterns that have negative influence. 
  • Break bad habits.
  • Find original ways of doing things. 
  • Recognize your discomfort with change is only temporary.

Revisit your design, fortify your plans and attend to the details. Use Virgo’s energy to get your administrative world in order. 

  • Make plans. Schedule events. 
  • Clean up any unfinished business. 
  • Make the phone calls, send the emails. 
  • Perform all outreach activities. 
  • Negotiate deals and sign contracts. 
  • Set your course for the remainder of the year. 

Open your heart to romance and your mind to creative pursuits. You feel sexy, social and creative (in any order you prefer 😉). This is also a way to expend pent-up tension. 

  •  Set up an evening of romance. 
  • Make plans with friends for a safe and social engagement. 
  • Allow time to get creative and make something beautiful.
  • Get physical. Work out. 

Recognize the reason behind the pressure of feelings of inadequacy. Where have you given your permission for people to step on your toes? How are you unclear about your expectations? 

  • Step into your command. 
  • Appreciate your authority.  
  • Be clear and concise in your communications. 

Let go of preconceived judgments and open your heart and mind to the intentions of others. Your view of the world is growing and changing with you. How does your emotional safety stand up to confrontation with the way you see the world? 

  • Be discerning instead of judging. 
  • Accept that others aren’t perfect and have their own situations you may or may not be aware.
  • Allow yourself to become a role model for how you want to be treated.  Be the person you want to be. 
  • Treat yourself with the same attention and care you treat your loved ones. 

Value in every way is being tested right now. What are your priorities for your time, energy and resource? Where are your dollars going? How are you earning your money? 

  • Review your financial targets. 
  • Revisit your budget. 
  • Create pleasure for yourself.
  • Invest in pleasing surroundings. 

Full Moon Crystal: 

Blue topaz is a part of the family of topaz, signifying love, ease and good fortune. It promotes loyalty in love and truth. It promotes better communication through clarity of feelings and honest emotional attachment. 

This gem promotes truth and forgiveness. It’s a mellow stone that works where it’s most needed.  It aligns your mind, body and spirit. 

Blue topaz helps you see where you strayed from truth and bring you back to your core wisdom.It ensures you to live up to your own aspirations. It assists you in writing your own script.

It has cooling powers and helps prevents anger and frustration. (This will be good for this weekend.) 

Thank you for reading and sharing with friends. 

As always, wishing you joy, 

Kim
