September is a cosmically intense turning-point month. The first part of the year, which began with the spring equinox and ended with the summer solstice, marked a time of clearing and letting go, both personally and collectively, of the last remnants of the old consciousness.
This month has much to do with defining the meaning of 2015 and where we are going as a planetary consciousness. The fate of the United States will also become more defined by events that take place now.
The big news for August is that Jupiter changes signs. After spending a year in Leo, he packs his bags on August 14 and moves on to see what wonders he can perform for the Virgo while simultaneously lending a helping hand to the efforts of the Taurus and the Capricorn.
I have been in this business for over fifty years and have watched all kinds of predictions about convergences, the new millennium, appearances of masters and avatars, landings by extraterrestrials, and so on. The dates come and go, and the world goes on in its (pretty much) dysfunctional way.
Venus remains retrograde until September 5. Its shadow period remains until October 9. The degrees traveled in August are 29˚54’ to 15˚11’ Leo. This brings a period of revisiting a relationship we thought to be of the past.
