Celebrate Success with Others in Your Life
By Misty Kuceris ©2019
When September starts, there is already a stellium in Virgo that began on August 23rd when the Sun entered the sign of Virgo. At that time, the stellium included Venus and Mars. This stellium increased in strength on August 29, 2019 when Mercury entered the sign of Virgo.
With a stellium in Virgo, you want to do everything right, especially since these are all personal planets, Mercury, Sun, Mars, and Venus. You don’t want to make any errors which cause you harm. It’s important, however, that you don’t criticize yourself to the point you don’t take any action. If you know what you want, you’ll be able to find a way to organize your life so you can achieve your goals. This is also a time period to simplify matters so you don’t get stuck on inconsequential details.
This stellium is further emphasized on September 1st when Mercury forms a square to Ceres and a trine to Uranus retrograde while Venus forms a trine to Saturn retrograde after the two Mercury aspects occur.
When Mercury forms the square to Ceres you think about home and your environment. You try to come up with ways that you can make life more comfortable. You’re willing to compromise on some of your goals without giving up what is most important to you.
As Mercury moves into the trine to Uranus retrograde, you start coming up with new ideas. You realize that some of the old ways of doing things aren’t working. You find that you’re open to new concepts. You even feel inspired to try new things.
When Venus forms the trine to Saturn retrograde, you realize just how to put these new concepts into reality without disturbing your sense of well-being. You’re able to implement new plans. You understand the importance of being organized. You even realize that it’s important to take care of your needs before you can help other people.
Once again, the stellium is emphasized on September 2nd as Mercury, the Sun, and Mars form a conjunction and Venus forms a square to Jupiter. You feel both optimistic and frustrated about your accomplishments. You realize that if you focus on your needs, it will be easier to set goals to meet those needs. At the same time, you don’t want other people to take advantage of you. And, you struggle with deciding whether or not to help other people to the point that you aren’t doing enough for yourself. The key to success is to move slowly with any situation that occurs. Decide whether you can help other people or if they need to help themselves. Again, don’t let anyone take advantage of your desire to help. The good news is that if you have to say no to someone, you’ll be able to say it in a way that doesn’t alienate the other person.
You also need to be cautious with finances. On one hand, it helps that the stellium is in Virgo because you want to be practical. But often, when Venus forms a square to Jupiter, you tend to rush into expensive purchases which you could regret later. If you think that you want to buy something, wait a few days to see if the price is worth it.
The stellium continues to be emphasized on September 3rd when Mercury and Mars form a conjunction. This time you realize just how important it is to stand up for your rights. You aren’t willing to let other people tell you what to do. Your mind is operating very quickly and you’re able to grasp important details. Just don’t bother to get into an argument because it’s not worth it.
Be very careful with finances and contracts on September 4th when Venus forms an opposition to Neptune retrograde. You don’t have all the facts. People are either lying to you or omitting important details which could prevent you from making the right decision. You may even meet someone today who you believe could be your soulmate. But you’re only seeing what you want to see and not what’s really there. Wait until tomorrow to make any important decisions.
On September 5th, you’re able to make good decisions as Mercury forms a trine to Saturn retrograde. You feel organized in your thought process. You’re able to get all the facts that you need. You even understand important concepts that weren’t that clear a few days ago. You may take yourself seriously, but it’s only because you know what to do.
When Mercury forms a square to Jupiter and Venus forms a trine to Pluto retrograde on September 6th, you feel as if you can rush into situations and still come out without any problems.
As Mercury forms the square to Jupiter, your mind operates quickly. You see concepts without a problem. You feel optimistic about your abilities to succeed. You just need to be a bit cautious that you don’t move so quickly you miss some important details. Or, you need to be careful that you don’t talk so much you give away too much information and regret it later.
When Venus forms the trine to Pluto retrograde, you feel passionate about your achievements. You know you can succeed and do whatever it takes. You feel good about yourself. You don’t have any doubts about your abilities. You even come across with a high level of charisma which enables you to interact with others in a more focused manner. Just don’t let passion get the better of you to the point where you don’t listen to what other people have to say.
Mental clarity is more difficult to achieve on September 7th when Mercury forms the opposition to Neptune retrograde. You need to pay attention to what other people are saying because they may be withholding vital information from you. Or, they may not be willing to take you seriously. This is a difficult time to negotiate any contracts so you’re better off waiting until tomorrow before you get involved with negotiations.
The good thing about Mercury forming an opposition to Neptune retrograde is that your creative nature is elevated. While this may not be the time to make any actual decisions, you’ll be able to come up with some creative plans that can be implemented tomorrow. Just take the time to meditate and reflect on potential solutions.
It’s a lot easier to succeed with negotiations on September 8th when Mercury forms a trine to Pluto retrograde and Mars forms a trine to Saturn retrograde.
With Mercury forming the trine to Pluto retrograde you’re very focused. You have the passion to succeed. You listen well to what other people mean, not just what they’re saying. You’re able to spot any deceit and prevent it from occurring. You understand the importance of keeping secrets so other people feel they can trust you.
With Mars forming the trine to Saturn retrograde less than one hour after Mercury forms the trine to Pluto retrograde, you come up with immediate plans of action. You are able to strategize and increase the success of any venture. If you feel you need to take any risks, you’ve calculated the odds. You have a high level of potential to win. Plus, you have a high energy level which can help you continue working on any problem until you find the solution.
Your high energy level continues on September 12th when Mars forms a square to Jupiter. You are willing to rush into situations which require risks. You find ways to achieve your goals. At the same time, you need to also slow down so you don’t miss some important detail. You don’t want to derail your plans by not considering all the facts.
You start feeling the energy of the Virgo stellium begin to wane when Mercury and Venus form a conjunction at 28º of Virgo. They both will be leaving the sign of Virgo tomorrow. At this point you want to relax. You’ve been successful with many projects, but you want to take some time off. You’re beginning to feel as if you need to rest and spend more time with your friends. After the full Moon occurs tomorrow, both Mercury and Venus will enter the sign of Libra.
As the full Moon with Sun in Virgo and Moon in Pisces occurs on September 14th you feel the energy of the Virgo stellium abate. Shortly after the full Moon, Mars forms an opposition to Neptune retrograde and both Mercury and Venus leave the sign of Virgo and enter the sign of Libra.
At the time of this full Moon you need to find that balance between your feelings and your thoughts. With the Moon in Pisces, you want to hold on to your dreams. With the Sun in Virgo, you want to pay attention to all those details in life. But paying attention to details may be difficulty with the Moon forming a conjunction to Neptune. The Mercury/Venus conjunction in Virgo in this chart indicates that details are important but only if they don’t get in the way of the big picture. This full Moon is actually a celebration of all the achievements you’ve experienced earlier in the month. Now is the time to prepare for rest and recreation.
This sense of needing rest is increased when Mars forms the opposition to Neptune retrograde. You don’t feel focused. You just want to drift. If you have to do anything today, it will be difficult. Don’t try to push yourself too hard. If possible, make this a day of rest.
As Mercury moves into the sign of Libra, you understand the importance of listening to other people and getting their side of the situation. Your mind is open to developing alliances. You don’t want to do anything alone. You’d rather spend more time with small talk than any serious matters.
Much of this desire to spend time with others increases as Venus enters the sign of Libra. With Venus in the sign of its rulership you realize that relationships are important. You want to spend more time socializing. You also don’t want to do all the work by yourself. You understand the importance of working with others and even delegating some of your projects.
On September 16th, Mercury forms an opposition to Chiron retrograde and Venus forms this same opposition the next day. Now you fully feel the shift away from the Virgo stellium.
With Mercury forming the opposition to Chiron retrograde on September 16th, you want to make certain that your words are gentle and kind. You don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. You want to help people find their own way by listening to their needs.
As Venus forms the opposition to Chiron retrograde on September 17th, you continue to feel that you need to help other people find their own way. This is especially true with Mercury forming a quincunx to Uranus retrograde less than one hour later.
With Venus you feel compassionate towards others. Yet you understand that people just need to learn from their own mistakes. They need to take responsibility for their own actions.
As Mercury forms a quincunx to Uranus retrograde you realize that anything you say could be taken the wrong way. For this reason, you’re better off listening rather than offering guidance. You may think that you know the best solutions, and perhaps you do. But others aren’t willing to listen. If you say one thing, they’ll contradict you. This will go on and on until you just stop talking.
On September 18th, Saturn turns stationary direct. It went retrograde on April 29th. When Saturn was retrograde, you may have felt a bit sluggish. Also, with Saturn in Capricorn you may have felt that work was a drag on your life. You weren’t that satisfied. Now, with Saturn turning direct you may decide that it’s time to look for a new job. Or, you may feel that new projects are appearing and work is not so boring after all.
On September 19th, you go from feeling that you can’t help anyone to realizing how important it is to listen. This is because Venus forms a quincunx to Uranus retrograde and Mars forms a trine to Pluto retrograde.
When Venus forms a quincunx to Uranus retrograde you feel as if you’re getting conflicting information. You want to help others, but they don’t want your help. They feel as if you’re interfering in their lives. They want to find their own path. Even you feel the same way. You don’t want other people to offer suggestions. You want to work out your problems on your own.
With Mars forming the trine to Pluto retrograde later in the day, you realize just how important it is to listen. You are able to guide other people without telling them what to do. You also feel passionate about your ability to help. What’s great about this trine is that you’re able to process information on a deeper level. You understand the subconscious motivations behind many actions.
When Mercury forms a sextile to Ceres on September 20th, you want to spend more time at home and take care of those details in your environment which prevented you from moving forward with your life. This is a great day to set your goals or organize your life. If you have to compromise on some of those goals you realize that it’s all right. Through compromise you can achieve a lot more.
On September 21st, Jupiter forms a square to Neptune retrograde. This is the third time this square occurs in this triad sequence. The first time it occurred was on January 13th when both Jupiter and Neptune were direct. The second time it occurred was on June 16th when Jupiter was retrograde and Neptune was direct.
During this year, you’ve spent time trying to understand the difference between pushing the boundaries and seeing boundaries dissolve right before your eyes. Both planets are in their own rulerships and that can make this square a lot easier for some people. It’s time to realize that not all is as it seems. You need to approach the world from a new perspective. If you didn’t figure that out earlier, you will figure it out now.
For other people, this can be a difficult time period because they want to hold on to the past. Holding on to the past is not easy because boundaries are shifting. A lot of the old rules don’t apply and you may not know what new rules to put in their place. If you’re not sure, just keep meditating on what’s important in your life and you’ll find your answer.
Mercury forms a square to Saturn on September 22nd and later in the day forms a square to the Moon’s Nodal Axis.
When Mercury forms the square to Saturn, you take things seriously. You don’t want to miss out on any of the details. This is a good day to get those difficult projects completed because you can be so focused on the facts. Just don’t take yourself so seriously that you miss out on having fun.
As Mercury moves into the square to the Moon’s Nodal Axis, you feel as if you need to find that balance between what you want to do with your future and how you need to hold onto the past. A good way to use this energy is to take your past experiences and use them as a catapult into your future goals. If you can do that, you’ll find that you have more success.
On September 23rd, the Sun enters Libra and half of the astrological year is over. It is the time of the equinox. In the United States, all of the other cardinal ingress charts have a Virgo rising. This chart has a Leo rising. There’s a desire to feel good about the country again. With the Moon in Cancer, you need to feel secure.
But the time of this equinox is also the time to understand what you need to harvest from your life and what you need to bring to completion. You want to improve your status. You want to develop your relationships with other people. You want to do things with others. You don’t want to be alone.
Saturn is applying to a conjunction to the Moon’s South Node in this chart indicating that if you can understand past events you’ll be able to move forward with your life. At the same time, the energy of the Jupiter/Neptune retrograde square is still felt in this chart indicating that the old rules no longer apply and the timing isn’t quite ready for new rules to develop.
What you want to do is look at the rules you’ve created in your life and see if they still apply in today’s world. You may need to make changes in your approach. If you’re under a lot of tension, perhaps it’s because you’re trying too hard to hold on to situations which no longer apply. Try to sort that out so you can move on with your life and harvest the best facts of your life that you can.
On September 24th, Venus forms a sextile to Ceres while Mercury forms a quincunx to Neptune retrograde and a sextile to Jupiter.
When Venus forms that sextile to Ceres, you feel as if you understand both the passion you feel in life as well as the force of the warrior who can move forward and succeed when life gets difficult. You’re willing to stand up for what you believe in. You realize that at times you need to compromise in order to succeed. But you’re willing to do what it takes.
As Mercury forms the quincunx to Neptune retrograde, you may feel confused about the direction you need to take. You thought you knew what you had to do, but now you’re not so sure. Take time to review your aspirations and see if they can be put into a realistic plan. Write them down and meditate on your words. Understand that you will be able to take the right course of action when you have a realistic plan.
When Mercury forms the sextile to Jupiter, you do begin to see what is important. You find a way to express your needs without intimidating anyone else. You feel good about the various decisions you made today and the process that brought you to those decisions. Even if the day got a little confusing earlier, now you know you have the clarity you need to succeed.
On September 25th, Venus forms a square to Saturn and a square to the Moon’s Nodal Axis later in the day.
When Venus forms the square to Saturn, you feel that you need to be cautious with your feelings. You may feel that other people are criticizing your actions, even if they’re not. You’re taking yourself too seriously and trying to find fault where there is none. Take time to be gentle with yourself. Realize there are other people who are willing to support your efforts. You don’t need to do everything on your own.
As Venus forms the square to the Moon’s Nodal Axis, you may feel that you are letting past circumstance stand in the way of your ability to move into the future. Take the time to review what you’ve done in the past and list your accomplishments, no matter how small they seem to you. See how you can use the lessons learned from the past to develop future goals. The key is to see how wonderful you are and that you can move on in life no matter what you’ve experienced in the past.
Once again you’ll find that you are taking yourself too seriously when Mercury forms a square to Pluto retrograde on September 26th. You want to do everything right. You don’t want to make mistakes. But, don’t be surprised to find that mistakes you made in the past will actually help you succeed in the long run.
This is a time to listen to what other people have to say. They may share information which answers some of your own inner most questions. This is also a good time to meditate and reflect on important aspects of your life. You’ll be able to reach into your subconscious reality to understand how your external life works.
You may feel lonely on September 27th as Venus forms a quincunx to Neptune retrograde. But don’t dwell on those feelings. You’re going through a period of time where you may doubt your value system or your ability to work with other people. This is not unusual when Venus forms the quincunx to Neptune. There is confusion surrounding your relationships with others. You’re not certain where they stand or even if you want to be involved with them. They may even be giving you confusing signals. But you’ll get the information you need tomorrow at the time of the new Moon.
Saturn forms a conjunction to the Moon’s South Node before the new Moon occurs on September 28th. After the new Moon occurs, Venus forms a sextile to Jupiter.
Yesterday you felt confused about the direction of your life and your relationships with others. Today, when Saturn forms a conjunction to the Moon’s South Node, you realize that many past experiences actually formed your current relationships. For those relationships where you are doing too much and not getting enough back in return, you may decide that it’s time to move on. But for those balanced relationships where you and the other people in your life helped each other, you understand just how important those people are in your life.
You also find that your past experiences can now help you move forward with your career. Perhaps you’ve been looking for a new job and the offer is finally made. Or, perhaps you realize that the job you are working in right now is the best place to be.
When the new Moon with Sun and Moon in Libra occurs, you want to reach out to your friends and associates. You want to heal old wounds since this new Moon opposes Chiron retrograde. This can be a happy day as you renew old friendships and discover new ones.
You’re willing to move on to new experiences as well. You realize that you can get support from other people. This new Moon creates a stellium in Libra that involves both Venus and Mercury. You find your ability to communicate with others increases. You enjoy your relationship with others. Even with the new Moon forming a quincunx to Uranus retrograde, you’re willing to try new things and meet new people. Don’t be at all surprised if someone from your past comes back into your life.
As the month of September ends, Venus forms a sextile to Jupiter after the new Moon occurs. You feel good about your decisions. You realize just how important your friends are. You’re willing to move on with your life knowing that you have the support of others.
