September 2017 Highlights:
September brings practical assessment and analysis of where things are and what we must do to move forward after the chaos generated by the eclipses in August, The Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars spend time in Virgo this month putting the focus on details, deadlines, order and practical matters. It is time to sort things out and get organized; we need to get back on track and make some progress this month. This is amplified as Mercury stations direct in Leo on the 5th, he will re-enter Virgo, his home sign on the 9th. Neptune in Pisces is retrograde all month. Pluto in Capricorn remains retrograde until he goes direct on the 28th. We'll feel compelled to get things moving as dynamic Mars in Leo trines Uranus on the 2nd. Communicate about your feelings instead of holding on to anger as Mercury conjoins Mars on the 3rd.
