August is a month of profound choice, and the essence of that choice sits at the depth of your soul’s experience: Who are you? How will you choose to be? August greets us from far outside the known universe with many people wondering how long they can keep living with things the way they are.
The basic premise of astrology is that there is a time to act and a time to lie low. The movements of the planets interact with our individual planetary dynamics and reveal good times to do particular things.
September 2021 begins with five planets retrograde — Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius, Uranus in Taurus, Neptune in Pisces, and Pluto in Capricorn — continuing into mid-October. Mercury goes retrograde September 27 to October 18 in Libra.
September has six retrograde planets! Out of ten planets, this is more than half. Retrogrades are based on what we see from Earth. Several times a year, our compared velocities make it look as if those planets are going backward, which of course is an optical illusion.
This is a 5 universal year, and the number five will repeatedly appear in significant symbolic ways throughout the year. One example is 5G, the new internet-connection frequency that comes with many dubious warnings and statistics.
The amplification energy this month is humbling and undeniable, the definition of lift off. Portals within portals open and collide into new creations as the flower of life invites itself to remember and expand into and through the second gate ignition.
I was chatting with a cashier recently, and she commented that the whole COVID-19 experience seems to have brought out the best and the worst in people. It was a simple observation, yet it got me thinking.
This month is about caring, health, harmonious living, and responsibility to self and others. There will be many clues as to the turn of events coming next year, for better or for worse. The trend says things will get better but with a few rough patches along the way.
