September 2014 Scopes
The August 25th New Moon in the practical earth sign of Virgo invited you to ground the wonderful creative firestorm you’ve stirred up earlier in the month into your everyday life in a healthy, sustainable way. It’s harvest time, and you’re getting curious about the fruit that has ripened in your creative garden under the Summer sun – will it nourish me, and be of genuine use to others? You have a chance to re-make our world into a better, healthier place one practical detail at the time. Be open to changing up your daily routine a bit as well, perhaps taking up new health-habit or reorganizing your office. Don’t worry, all this focus on the “nitty-gritty” is not meant to bog you down – generous Jupiter continues to supply you with plenty of creative rocket fuel. In order to avoid burning out in all that fire, please embrace this Virgo Moon’s gentle reminders of self-care. You’ll be glad you did – a solid, well-run launching pad is essential for all that you’re ready to bring into the world.
Full Moon on September 8th echoes this theme of self-care on the deepest, innermost levels of your being, gifting you a beautiful opportunity for spiritual healing, rest and rejuvenation. A retreat to a gorgeous place near water would be a lovely way to use this energy. Meditation, energy healing and sound-baths are also supportive of this cosmic gateway to gently release anything that doesn’t allow you to truly trust the unfolding of the “larger landscape” of your life.
New Moon on September 24th brings a breath of fresh air into your relationships. You’ll find a renewed sense of joy and possibilities in discovering how to relate with your dear ones with grace and ease, while remaining fully YOU in all your wild fiery creative glory. Yes, it’s a balancing act, but the key here is to realize that balance is not something static that can be “achieved” – it’s a continuous DANCE of co-creation – at times a slow and lovely Waltz, at times a dramatic Tango. Enjoy it all – see it as another way to use the creative rocket fuel you’re so abundantly blessed with!
The August 25th New Moon in your fellow earth sign of Virgo stimulated the practical side of your creativity, inspiring you to make your life more healthy and sustainable in a fun way. You find genuine joy in figuring out how to do things not only better, but also more beautifully. And, you don’t have to be an artist or an artisan to put this fresh energy to good use – your whole life is your canvas and even your smallest everyday acts can be infused with innate beauty. If you’ve been dreaming of the most deeply earthy kind of creation – bringing a child into your world – cosmic support is there, especially after September 6th when Venus the planet of Love enters your Garden of Creation. Enjoy!
The only potential spoiler in your creative explorations is your nagging “inner critic” that tends to get your ear just when you begin to “get into it”. As soon as you start to compare the fruits of your garden with the neighbor’s bounty, you’re lost. Bring your focus back to the unique CONTRIBUTION you are, and see how your sometimes (seemingly!) small gifts can change the world for others in a very tangible way. And, if that doesn’t work, send that “judge” of yours on vacation, a margarita on the beach might just mellow him out:)
As the lunar cycle culminates on September 8th, the Full Moon in oceanic Pisces asks you to celebrate your circle of soul-friends. This energy has deep healing potential and the veils between the worlds are thin at this time, so make sure you surround yourself with people who truly honor you for who you are. The space of genuine mutual caring and allowance is just the balm you need to heal any ancient wounds of “not belonging”. Even your “inner judge” may melt and relax in this healing embrace of true brotherhood and sisterhood. Cherish your cosmic tribe this Full Moon – attend a group meditation, or take a hike with friends to a sacred waterfall – gentle healing blessings will flow to all.
On the New Moon of September 24th, your urge to make your life a work of art finds a fresh canvas. You may even feel inspired to start a new healthy habit that feels more like art than dreaded “exercise”:) Take a dance class, or try horseback riding – anything that makes you feel alive and beautiful will effortlessly lift your spirits and re-energize your body without feeling like “work”. No, I’m not calling you lazy by any means, dear sensual bull – it’s just that “effort” is not what motivates you – beauty does! You can’t go wrong by following that luminous thread of beauty through the hours of your everyday. Take your cue from Rumi: “Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.”
New Moon on August 25th in the practical earth sign of Virgo offered you an opportunity to catch your breath and ground the non-stop creative juice that’s been coursing through your veins deep into your roots. With all that’s going on in your life, it’s important to have a foundation capable of sustaining your intensity and nourishing your body. Venus, the planet of love and abundance comes to your aid here, volunteering to be your home decorator and health coach on September 6th. In the sign of Virgo the harvest goddess, Venus makes sure your roots will be fed only the best organic fertilizers, ensuring you’ll grow a healthy stable base to reach to the sky from. If you’re thinking of moving, or otherwise sprucing up your nest, Venus will guide you to smart and sustainable choices that will satisfy your body and soul. She will ensure any energy you invest in shoring up your base will reap lovely long-term rewards.
Full Moon on September 8th shines a bright spotlight on your work in the world. Whether you know it or not, you have an amazing ability to tap into (and shift!) global consciousness. This moon offers you a beautifully supported opportunity to heal any deep-seated doubts you’ve had about your ability to make a profound difference in the world, bringing gentle compassionate light to the places where you’ve not trusted your oceanic awareness, where you’ve felt wrong for not being able to explain everything you know deep inside. Let this healing watery Pisces moon dissolve all barriers to your true brilliance, inside and out. The world will benefit from your unconditioned expression, don’t pretend you don’t know this:)
A fresh breeze of creativity blows through your life on the New Moon of September 24th, helping you reconnect with that playful, mischievous and curious child inside you. New ideas pop into your head as if by magic, your love life sparkles with fresh flirty joy, and, who knows, the universe may have a cosmically creative idea to birth through you:) If welcoming home your very own bundle of joy is what your heart desires, you might just get your wish. All the healthy upgrades you made to your crib earlier in the month will go to good use for sure. If your idea of “creation” is not quite so earthy at the moment, you’ll find a multitude of other projects knocking at your door. Good thing you’ve invested a bit of effort in nourishing your roots, because fun and colorful fruits are popping up all over your life! Enjoy the playful magic that creating on planet Earth can be!
New Moon on August 25th in the harvest-time earth sign of Virgo brought you a fresh crop of ideas and e-mails to catch up on. The seeds of new work and creative opportunities you planted last month found fertile ground to sprout – in fact, there might be too many plans and options popping up all at once. Luckily this Virgo energy is known for the quality of intelligent discernment. Use your innate intuition coupled with a healthy dose of earthy objectivity to choose which calls to take, which appointments to make. Don’t be afraid to say “No” to what doesn’t feel 100% right and light – Jupiter in your house of self worth and earnings will keep the abundant offers coming. The universe is conspiring to put you to work this year, in the best and most empowering way:)
There’s a certain “back to school” mood in the air as well, and you may find your curiosity aroused to learn a new skill or upgrade your existing inner “software package”. It’s a great time to take a class, get some mentoring or do some independent research into what truly fascinates you. As long as you’re coming from genuine joyous curiosity, not a nagging sense of “not good enough, not smart enough”, you’ll find a wellspring of practical earthy wisdom opening before you. And, if you do discover that old gremlin of inadequacy crawling out of a dark corner of your mind, don’t worry – just approach this little monster with a gentle smile: “Hello, who are you? What would you like to tell me?” Sometimes that’s all it takes to make an inner “enemy” into a wise friend and ally:)
The beautiful healing Full Moon on September 8th in your soul-sister water sign of Pisces lifts your awareness from the (sometimes dizzying:) daily details to the lofty visions of oceanic oneness. Heed the call, take a soul-journey – whether it’s an actual trip to a gorgeous retreat by the water, or an expansive inner adventure. You’ll feel refreshed and renewed again by this welcome glimpse into the unfolding of the larger landscape of your life.
As the autumn leaves start to fall, your energy is drawn to your roots again with the New Moon on September 24th in the home sector of your chart.

If you feel you’ve outgrown your present quarters, you’ll have all the luck in finding a new lovely place to call your home. As the chilly autumn winds blow outside, you’ll be curled up under a comfy blanket, catching up with all the half-finished books you bought in the flurry of curiosity earlier in the month. Looks like your personal version of Heaven on Earth, dear cozy Cancer!

Underneath your dazzling exterior is a genuine heart of gold, and this New Moon helps you see that your greatest asset is your very Self.

To put it bluntly, money does grow on trees for you this month, dear lovable Leo – trees that are nourished by the rich soil of tangible experience of the contribution you are to the world.
Full Moon on September 8th opens the door to deep healing and empowerment. Where have you engaged in subtle power-plays, played the victim and sold yourself short in order to ensure what seems like support?

This is a chance to heal a deep sense of mistrust you’ve had in the very fabric of life. Let the ocean carry you, let the universe have your back! Trust that you don’t have to control… that, in fact, you can’t control the way this support shows up for you. And KNOW that it always will.
All these deep inner shifts and re-evaluations find a beautiful outlet on the New Moon of September 24th in the gracious air sign of Libra. You’re testing a whole new way of relating in the world, and it feels so much lighter! Something in you is ready to emerge, to sing a new song of beauty and balance.

As the light of the next New Moon emerges on September 24th, all this healing and re-balancing starts to trickle deeper into your core, shifting the way you value yourself in the world. You’re not known for “tooting your own horn”, dear Virgo, but false modesty is a twisted form of arrogance if you look deeper into it’s roots. So, take a clear and honest look at yourself, assess your skills and notice the contribution you are to the tangible, day-to-day healing and sustaining of our planet. You are needed and valued here, perhaps more than you allow yourself to realize. And, the more you let this simple truth sink in, the more the world responds by offering you beautiful ways to exercise your skills and talents, and earn a nice living from doing so. Enjoy your work in the healing garden of Earth, we’re all so grateful for your gifts!
New Moon on August 25th in the private and practical earth sign of Virgo called you to explore the hidden corners of your inner garden. A welcome change of pace after a busy summer for sure! While a little R&R to recharge your batteries is lovely, there are deeper cosmic currents at work here – you have a chance to weed out tons of troublesome old thought patterns that have been choking the flow of your creative life juice. Don’t be afraid to get your “hands dirty”! And, resist the urge to jump to damning conclusions or stinging self-judgements when you see what emerges from the shadows – rather, use this as a chance for compassion and forgiveness for yourself and for all the ancestors whose ancient wars have sown these sorry seeds. This Virgo energy is very healing and resourceful: you can COMPOST all that inner gunk, recycle it into potent fuel for fresh creation. As the Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh shared with his students: “Without mud, you cannot have a lotus flower”. So, bless the weeds and dead old leaves of past pain as you compost them, and trust the alchemy of transformation. And, lest you think this journey is just a hard but necessary chore, Venus, your beautiful cosmic patron, steps in to lend you a hand on September 6th, showing you unexpected treasures and tasty fruits that have grown up amongst the weeds as well. There’s hidden wisdom and joy in this work, if you’re willing to get genuinely curious about your inner wilds.
The theme of healing is woven gently through the time of the September 8th Full Moon as well – this watery Pisces Moon shines a compassionate light on your daily life, asking if there’s anything that needs releasing there. It’s a great time to schedule a healing session that’s truly nourishing for your body – relaxing reflexology, Reiki, or a session of Watsu – a beautiful way of doing massage and stretching in warm water that leaves you floating in oceanic bliss. Cosmic support is there to gracefully release any addictions or unhealthy habits as well – this Pisces Moon can literally dissolve anything that no longer belongs in your life.
The September 24th New Moon lights up the beginning of your Birthday season with a fresh beam of beauty and balance. All the healing, releasing, inner and outer de-cluttering you’ve been busy with created the space for the seeds of a lovely new YOU to be planted. And, the first inner flowers nourished by your carefully tended compost are raising their pretty heads:) Enjoy this breath of fresh air, stretch and step out into the new year of your life! Happy Birthday, dear Libra!
New Moon on August 25th asked you to open up to the possibility of letting some new friends into your life, or perhaps finding a whole new community where you feel supported and connected in a very practical, grounded way. Yes, dear Scorpio, you’re very selective about letting people “in”, and rightly so – superficial niceties are not your style. You need to know you can trust a friend to go to the deepest of soulful depths with you (and to get you out of jail with no questions asked on a Sunday morning:). This earthy Virgo Moon is opening the door for just that kind of authentic, no-nonsense connection with the people in your life, where love and support is shown through everyday actions, not fluffy flowery words. You ARE that kind of friend, and you’re worth your weight in gold in the lives of those who are lucky enough to know you. Celebrate true friendships this month, be grateful for your special “parters in crime” and watch that gratitude beam right back at you. Let your friends inspire you and show you how you’re part of a quiet revolution towards a more authentic, truly healthy and daringly vulnerable way or relating.

And if some of your psychic inheritance turns out to be heavy lead instead of gleaming gold, you’ll know what to do – alchemy is your natural birthright, dear Scorpio, the transformative magician of the zodiac. Enjoy the excavation! The space you clear will bode well for the rebirth that’s on the horizon in October, as your Birthday season beacons.
New Moon on August 25th in the resourceful earth sign of Virgo brought you a fresh crop of opportunities to apply your expansive insights and considerable talents to the task of creating a better, healthier and more sustainable world. Jupiter showered you with seeds of “big ideas”, and now it’s time to plant some of them into the fertile soil of your worldly mission. But, you might in fact be so in demand by others and so (over)extended in your own head that the choice of which promising seed to nurture gives you a migraine instead of a jolt of joy. You hate to narrow things down, but this is precisely what’s required if the seeds you plant are to have enough air and room to thrive. Luckily, Venus comes to your aid in the form of a Virgo garden goddess starting September 6th, giving a special “glow” of authentic appeal to the opportunities that are best to pursue. Venus in Virgo has impeccable taste and knows what she wants, and you’re lucky to have her as your cosmic career coach right now. Follow your authentic desire (Venus!), and reflect on how what you do serves the greater good as well as your own continued growth, and you can’t go wrong.

You are always “plugged in” to the communications grid of the universe, even though some of the messages at times astound and confound you:) Don’t try to force it all to make sense, especially during this imaginative dreamy Moon. Let yourself be inspired and led, even though it may feel quite strange at times! The larger picture that starts to emerge from these little prompts and clues is more beautiful and profound that you could have ever planned on your own.
