Jupiter stations retrograde by Sep 4, before slowly moving back through the same section of the zodiac Mercury backtracked through in Apr/May of this year. We’re likely to be asking ourselves why we did what we did, or why things happened the way they did, throughout the rest of the year, until Jupiter stations direct on Dec 31.
Venus stations direct on Sep 4, just as Jupiter stations, passing the retrograde baton over. When we get clear about one thing, it frees up energy to focus more on reassessing other things, I guess. Uranus has already begun its retrograde, placing all 3: Jupiter, Rahu, and Uranus, retrograde in Aries. Mars and Saturn look on as well, so there’s a lot of focus on the sign. Whatever Aries represents for you personally is keeping you busy. Make sure you’ve got something to focus your energy on, ideally, something you’ve already done, as you remove any blocks to your full potential.
Retrogrades are a time to re-orientate ourselves around external changes that have already taken place in the world around us. It’s best not to add too many new things into the mix as you rework certain things. There is much to adjust to in September. If you’ve got something you can rethink and redo, go do that.
The whole month is a process of getting your ducks in a row, but it’s not your typical September by any stretch of the imagination. Usually, September is one of the more efficient months of the year, as we organize and plan our routines. This year, it’s more complicated. Any plans must also include doing things you used to, as well as redoing something you have recently begun, all the while, planning and implementing new things.
The mind can be too busy to do anything effectively, of course. With all of the planets retrograde, all that busyness may not feel as if we are getting anywhere quickly in September. At least Venus is direct from Sep 4 and Mercury stations direct by Sep 15.
We can make use of the remunerations and re-calibrations until then. Use the first two weeks of the month for planning and strategy, so you can hit the ground running once Mercury stations direct mid-month. The excitement is likely to feel quite intense by then, as Mercury stations in a trine with Jupiter. But it may not be clear to you why you are doing what you are doing, even if it feels good doing it, but at least things are moving forward.
Mars is the only planet keeping the forward momentum going from the beginning of the month, pushing plans through even if we are not clear about the details, as it transits opposite Neptune.
This is another reason to get clear about why you do what you do, not so much the details. If you’re not clear, you’re unlikely to keep going when hurdles present themselves. When you are, you’ll overcome any kind of setback to get to where you need to be.
