Success is here – will you lean in or turn away?
The 2021 forecast is still true. Here’s September.
This is an excellent month energetically, perhaps the best one of the year. You’re starting to see evidence of all of your hard work and effort you began in 2020. You can make positive lasting change when you allow your intuition to lead you into influence and collaboration. You feel excellent – optimistic and filled with good cheer. Overall, you have strong self-confidence and see positive signs in love, finance and business success. Additionally, can you remember 2018? Some of the plantings you made then are bearing fruit now.
Big Star Events
- Autumnal Equinox on September 22nd
- Mercury retrograde September 27th – October 18th
Week 1: Healthy Selections
Health is an issue under review this month to enable you to make choices and set priorities for yourself and your family. Pay attention to the basics – food, sleep and movement. Give yourself room to create new habits and routines. Shift your perspective to make health your #1 priority if it isn’t already. The stars are supportive of all things natural, local, fresh and nutritious.
This is pertains to financial and business health. What supports are showing up for you? Have you said, “Yes.” even if it feels like a reach? This is the time to say YES to supports for your growth and success. 2021 is winding down (believe it or not) and this is the year to get those stakes in place for your future growth.
New Moon: Embodiment of Full Potential
Details: September 6th New Moon Virgo 5° @8:52 pm ET
The plantings you’ve made in the last few years, specifically 2018, and since February and March of this year are bearing fruit. You can see evidence of your hard work, effort and diligence. Those who have undergone a transformation are standing at the fore guiding others, either with family and friends, a larger collective or for the world at large.
There’s a healthy vibrancy, exciting and new opportunities and much success for those who have taken brave action and pushed the boundaries of their former lives. For those who haven’t, the opportunity to begin is here. Say YES.
Relationships are coming up for review in a few weeks and this review lasts for a few months, so use this New Moon to set intentions around the relationships in your life. How are you showing up? How are you being treated? Do you accept support gracefully and appreciatively? Do you stay in your own sphere of influence or do you step into others’ because it feels better than dealing with your own issues? Also, what do you value now and in the future? Are you aligned – present you and future you?
Take some time to reflect and answer these questions this month. It’s MUCH easier in September when everything is running smoothly than it will be in the coming months when relationships are under the microscope.
Week 2: Aligning Influences
All of the changes these past few years are finally integrating and coming into alignment. Your fresh perspective aids in culminating your transformation for success. Your future is here – now. Adjust any remaining doubts or inner voice negation. Woo your mind to join your heart and soul. Even better, drop into your intuition and allow it to drive your choices. The alignment of mind, heart and soul is available to you. Will you allow it?
At the end of the week, your energy dissipates and you feel dreamy and lethargic. When your schedule allows, relax and rejuvenate. Go to a spa, take a yoga class or get a massage. Your body wants to be pampered right now and your heart yearns for deep exploration into the intuitive. Combine these desires by getting healing. This is an excellent time for it.
Week 3: Harmonious Freedom
The energies settle further, bringing peace and harmony into the collective. Traditional views are under review and adjustments want to be made to create new systems. You have the desire to change your love life, finances and values. Your future self is demanding it. You want independence and freedom, so ask yourself; are you in service to your money or is your money in service to you? Ask the same thing of your loved ones. Do you have interdependence in your relationships in every area of your life – friends, family, work and play? Interdependence allows for each person in relationship to be independent, happy and satisfied with the relationship adding to each of you, not depleting one or the other. There’s fortune and good luck here when you let go of control and roll with the changes.
Full Moon: Logical Dreaming
Details: September 20th Full Moon Virgo & Pisces Opposition 28° @ 7:54 pm ET
New awareness comes to you to help you envelop your future. Your mind cooperates fully to make your dreams into reality. The opening of the practical with the magical, the logical with the dreamy and the realistic with the creative stretches your imagination. What have you been dreaming for your best life? What flavor of success to you wish to embrace? How will your mind, heart and soul embody your potential in reality as well as in your dreams?
Your selections for health and wellbeing require a few tweaks. Make them. It’s easy to do now before you become too settled into them.Week 4: Deepening
Happy Equinox & It’s Your Birthday Libra!
The Sun enters Libra, a cardinal sign, signaling the beginning of a new season and the equality that’s prevalent in the cosmos as the length of day equals the length of night. Libra brings harmony, cooperation and beauty into view humanity. Will we be able to see it, feel it, sense it? Let’s step into it fully, carrying these yummy energies to begin a new season renewed and refreshed.
Week 4: Mindful Loving
Your business and love lives are humming right now. All seems aligned and in the flow, then here comes Mercury. Without him turning your mind inside out, this is an excellent and fortuitous time. If you steer from your intuition, this week is nothing but awesome. If your mind controls your life, then use your mind to get to the bottom of things and ferret out the way to invite your intuition into the mix.
Mercury Retrograde in Libra September 27 until October 18
Here’s what I wrote in the 2021 annual forecast:
In September-October, freedom is at stake as Mercury retrograde pulls apart any harmony and cooperation. We will see the impacts as things are coming closer together and then get disrupted with snags and entanglements. Be patient. You have to put aside your expectations of anything coming together during these 3 weeks. Wait them out – you’ll all be better for it.
Note: For Geminis and Virgos and those with packed 3rd and 6th houses, add the shadow periods for each retrograde cycle. Typically adding 10 days before and after provides adequate cover.
Additionally, Librans should add the shadow too.
Bottom Line: Embrace Your Success
Hooray for September! Integrate your future self into the present. Count your winnings and celebrate yourself at the end of the month. Remember to celebrate with your loved ones too. They’ll be happy to be invited.
Supportive Intuitive Tools
Oracle cards: 34 – Merge
From our Intuition Oracle Guidebook:
Merge with your resistance. Some blocks require merging while others require letting go. Sometimes it’s too vulnerable to allow yourself to fall back and let unknown energy enter into your field. When this happens, lean into what’s blocking you.
The number 34 wants you to follow your heart’s wisdom by trusting in the divine while simultaneously making practical progress toward your aspirations.
Crystal: Smoky quartz
Smoky quartz is a gentle grounding stone that protects and dissolves negative states. It helps you meditate as it reaches into the deepest levels of you. As it grounds you, it links you to highest levels of the universe. This crystal also helps you step into your power as you let go of what no longer serves you. It supports your ability to see beneath the surface, giving you courage and insight into your own healing and that of others.
Flower essence: Beech
The beech tree is ancient, commanding and stoic. It stands tall and proud with its branches cascading far and wide. This tree is taking up space and reminding us to do so as well. You have the right to take up space, stand tall and proud without fear of judgment or retribution.
This flower essence combats your inclination to be intolerant of others in order to hide from yourself. Unlike the beech tree, you don’t give yourself permission to take up space by dealing with your own life first and letting go of your interference into the lives of others, either through action or thought. This flower essence softens judgment and leads to love – of self and others. Tolerance and kindness come to the fore as your mind quiets to move into awareness and understanding.
