September 2020 is rolling in with the potential to bring connection to inner wisdom and clarity, but to engage that energy remember to focus on the why and don’t get sucked into illusions, drama and escape.
Before I break down the energy in 4 weeks for September let’s review what’s up with planetary retrogrades. By my count we have 6 planets in retrograde in September and each brings an insightful clarity.
- Pluto Retrograde – Pluto is still retrograde throughout September reminding us that we are supported to dive deeply into shadow work, releasing limiting programs, releasing control and step into more of an empowered Divine Feminine role. Pluto is also bringing opportunity for clarity on your path and purpose and deeper understanding about who you really are.
- Saturn Retrograde is supporting us with growth in the areas of connection. How have you been connecting with others? How do you feel about authority figures? How do you feel about being accepted and accepting others in general? This retrograde is asking us to consider how we operate in these areas and if they represent who we truly are or are patterns that we are complete with.
- Jupiter Retrograde until about mid month. Use the first few weeks of September while this retrograde is increasing your focus on goals. This is a beautiful time to ask if your goals and desires feel like they are Soul level. Do you feel a connection to them? Consider how you want to feel in every cell of your body and make that a Soul level goal. making
- Neptune Retrograde this is such a transformational retrograde! Yet that transformation can feel challenging and many of us will want to escape with some netflix, wine or your escape of choice. This month neptune retrograde feels tied into awareness of truth and your connection to your inner truth. Under the retrograde you are empowered to pay attention and make choices that shift your reality. But I mean that urge to escape and run away is real so take a big breath and remind yourself there is power in your inner knowing and only you can shift your reality.
- Uranus Retrograde – Again, here we are supported by Uranus to shift. To look at your belief system and break down what is not serving you. Consider what you are currently attracting into your life. Ask what beliefs will support you to shift your point of attraction into more of what you desire.
- Mars Retrograde so this retrograde begins on 9/9 and wraps up on Friday the 13th (Day of the Goddess) – what could go wrong? This is a powerhouse retrograde so I want to first stress the importance of grounding and self care. Breathe. With all these retrogrades change is inevitable. You will be asked to look within for the answers. All of this cosmic support is to help you move to a more aligned path (more aligned to exactly who you are and why you are here) for some this means big changes, for others small tweeks. Keep coming back to the bigger picture, your why, really connect to the heart. When you can connect with this inner knowing and grounded peace you will be supported by Mars with clear inspired action steps to move forward.
We enter September on the theme of forgiveness and healing. Allowing your Higher perspective to color your awareness. Remind yourself that you are unconditionally loved, accepted, worthy and good. AGAIN: you are unconditionally loved, accepted, worthy and good. If you notice beliefs that try to convince you otherwise use this start of the month Full Moon to help you let go and shift your focus back to the truth of your innate natural worth and brilliance. Your intuition and higher awareness are also expanded under this moon, use this energy to be the observer. See your life circumstance from a Higher perspective to help you let go of old beliefs. Rise above and see your relationships, circumstance and progress towards your goals and desires from a Higher perspective. This first week of September is a great time for reflection and fresh insight. Let your emotions speak to you, and guide you but not to overcome and derail you – remember that Higher perspective.
As we move into the 2nd week of September take action with the clarity and inspiration you have gathered with the Full Moon. Go as guided. Really make it your time to take action on those intuitive nudges. Seriously. Ask yourself if you are living in a way that nourishes you on a Soul level? What can you do to deepen that or what can you take action on to shift you into a place of deeper integrity with who you are. When you consider integrity from the perspective of ‘structural integrity’, something that is whole and complete, solid and grounded, ask yourself where in your life you are not in integrity with who you really are. Your heart will answer – and again – only you have the power to shift your reality.
Week 3 in September and things start to feel even more Divinely connected. We are coming up to Equinox and there is always magic in the air! Tune into your vision for yourself and humanity. Let that vision expand.Take time to connect to the Earth, ground and really open your heart. Trust the process. This Equinox is the perfect time to remind yourself of the cycle of growth. Sometimes you have to be in the dark and might not know exactly what is going on or what is coming next, but it is all part of the process. Remind yourself of your amazing discernment and guidance system, when you turn inward you’ll always know the way to go. We also have a New Moon this week, supporting your intentions. The message I get from this moon is to do what you feel inspired to do, don’t allow force or stagnation to take the reins.
Finally as we move fully into Equinox energy and the final week of September you have an opening for breaking down and moving through fear into deeper expansion. Be courageous as you are creating space within yourself and in your life for more love. When we look at the energy of the Equinox we are reminded of this energy of balance, things coming to fruition. This energy helps to boost and refined intentions you made earlier this year. The more you celebrate the natural cycle and the value and progression of each phase, the more fruits you will see emerging. In the Northern Hemisphere we are entering the dark season. In the Southern, the light is expanding. There is a beautiful rebalance happening right now. Allow yourself some time this week to connect to the energy of fulfillment and success. What does fulfillment feel like for you on a Soul level? Be sure to pay attention to energy levels, when you feel called to rest and when to take action. Again – your discernment and self trust will lead the way! You shift with the seasons, so give yourself some space to reflect on what this coming season is all about for you.
