ASTROLOGICAL EDGE . . . . . . September 2014

September is a great month to roll up your sleeves and tackle any projects on your to-do list that you’ve been procrastinating. The overall mood will be industrious and promotes focusing on the tasks at hand.  It’s an especially good time for detail-oriented work and clearing your home or office of clutter.  There will be an overall theme of “cleaning house,” on a physical and emotional level.  Partnerships will be emphasized and we are called upon to improve how we relate to others.  The practical mood in the atmosphere will be helpful for facing any problems head on and making a realistic plan of action.

 Jupiter closely trines Uranus all month (lasting to 10/6). The combination of these planets, in harmony, can result in strong feelings of optimism that help us to attract positive outcomes.  Both Jupiter and Uranus are in fire signs and will lend a lot of enthusiasm and energy to any new endeavors.  Creative ideas can flourish under this influence and are able to “catch fire” to suddenly become much bigger than originally planned.  Be prepared with a plan of action for your best-case scenario.  It’s a prime time for innovation and thinking outside of the box. 

On the 3rd, Mercury moves into Libra which can increase the exchange of social communications.  It’s a good month for diplomatic negotiations with romantic or business partners.  Those who have been looking for the right way to phrase delicate topics may find that the appropriate words come to mind more easily this month.  We’re likely to enjoy lively conversations and learn from differing points-of-view.  The overall flow of good will promotes striking happy compromises. 

Romantic notions may be brought down to Earth when Venus moves into Virgo on September 6th.  This practical energy is great for seeing your relationships and creative ideas through a more realistic lens.  While Venus was in Leo last month, it was easy to get carried away in the moment with little concern for the future.  Now we’re offered the chance to think about maintaining our loving relationships on a day-to-day basis.  Taking care of household chores or running errands can be a great way to show others how much you care.  We’ll also be supported in taking steps to actualize our creative visions.

Pluto goes direct on September 22nd (lasting to 4/17/15), which can bring our innermost fears into the light of day.  By facing our secrets and insecurities, we can become empowered to make essential changes especially when it comes to how we relate to the authority figures in our lives.  For the past six months while Pluto was in retrograde, our focus has been turned towards internal processes. 

Now that we’ve uncovered our inner truth, it’s time to integrate this into our lives and that might mean being honest with someone else about a difficult situation.  This transformative planet is here to help expose anything that is no longer serving us so that we can create . . . . .

THE ASTROLOGICAL EDGE gives insights into the current “windows of opportunity” available for successfully navigating your life and is one of the regular monthly features that is part of membership on this site.

Every month on the day of the NEW MOON, the energy in the atmosphere opens to receive new seeds. For centuries, farmers have used the New Moon cycles for planting their crops. We can use this same potent energy for planting dreams and goals of what we want to manifest in our lives. To use a New Moon POWER DAY, simply write down a maximum of ten wishes you would like to see manifest in your life.

Because the New Moon in September will occur in the sign of LIBRA,  you may want to include wishes concerning one or more of the following categories which are ruled by Libra on your list: marriage, partnerships, diplomacy, fairness, awareness of others, cooperation, balance, peace, harmony, refinement and beauty.  

Sample wishes:
“I want to easily attract, recognize and begin a healthy, happy relationship with the right marriage partner for me”
“I want to easily find myself saying the right words to my spouse that create mutual respect, supportiveness, love and desire for fair play”
“I want all resistance to being a team player easily lifted from me”
“I want to easily find myself being aware of and respecting the individual identity of others”
“I want to easily find myself cooperating with others in a healthy, happy way”
“I want to speak with tact, leading to others wanting to cooperate with me”

For exact best times for wishing, log in to and select the “New Moon Power Days” icon located on the members home page, three days prior to September’s the New Moon.

SPECIAL FEATURE: All members automatically receive the exact best times for wishing in their inboxes each and every month.

NEW MOON REMINDER… Monday, August 25, Virgo 10:13 am EDST

NEW MOON REMINDER… Monday, August 25, 10:13 am EDST, is the New Moon Power Day in August! Don’t miss this opportunity to make wishes for goals you’d like to reach and experiences you’d like to have. This particular New Moon is the most potent one of the year for wishes involving your job or health.

Because this New Moon is in the sign of VIRGO, it’s a powerful time for new starts in re-energizing positive relationships with your co-workers and bringing to completion any organizational tasks you may have been avoiding. Things you may have wanted to happen in your life for a long time can begin easily manifesting through using the boost of this service-oriented and practical New Moon!

For success, your wishes must be handwritten on paper and ten wishes maximum are allowed on each power day. The most potent time is the first 8 hours AFTER the exact time of the New Moon; within the first 48 hours will still work. The potency continues to exist for another twelve hours, but is weaker. For clear success, it’s best to avoid wishing during those hours when the Moon is Void of Course.

To see your most potent days and exact times for wishing in AUGUST,  login here .  All site Members receive the days and exact times directly in their email inbox.

These times are in Eastern Daylight Savings Time and need to be converted to your local time zone. Keep in mind that if you are not observing Daylight Savings Time, subtract one hour, and then convert to your time zone. The Moon Box on the Homepage of this will tell you how many hours difference your location is from the Eastern Time Zone in the US.

Among other things, VIRGO rules the willingness to deal with details so that tangible success can be attained. It gives us the humility to take care of the little things, so that the larger aims for our life can be attained.

Your wishes can be about anything that is important to you to bring into your life. For more New Moon tips for August and suggested wording for wishes when the New Moon is in VIRGO,  login here and select the “New Moon Power Days” icon from the Membership Menu.

During the last week of August and the first three weeks of September, the SUN is traveling through the sign of VIRGO. The energy of Virgo activates that part of ourselves that can be self-critical and fears making a mistake and getting hurt.

The feeling of “not being prepared enough” – and memories of past experiences – can block us from going forward and claiming rewards in life that we are now fully capable of embracing successfully. This poem is about remembering that – due to more life experience and maturity – we can currently take a risk and succeed at experiences that in the past were not so happy for us.

MUD PUDDLES written by Jan Spiller

Sure the past wasn’t so good
Surely there were days when you thought you would
Surely die -
And you cried ’cause you knew that you’d tried …

I know right now seems just the same
Same situation – only a different name
And you’re afraid
To go through it when the price has been paid …

Did you know that …
You can’t go through the same mud puddle twice?
Time transforms the water, and the length of your stride
Everything is changing – what was then, isn’t now … and
You can’t go through the same mud puddle twice!

Why should you trust – you trusted before
And what did it get you but a little bit more
Of the pain -
And you think this time will be the same …

Afraid to even try, what will happen to you
If it doesn’t work out – the way you want it to?
You don’t know …
And you’re afraid to try it and let go …

Did you know that …
You can’t go through the same mud puddle twice?
Time transforms the water, and the length of your stride
Everything is changing – what was then, isn’t now …
You can’t go through the same mud puddle twice!

You’re older now, you’ve learned a lot more
You even see symptoms before they take root
In the core -
Yes, you know so much more than before …

And anyway …
You can’t go through the same mud puddle twice!
Time transforms the water, and the length of your stride
Everything is changing – what was then, isn’t now …
And you can’t go through the same mud puddle twice!

These poems were originally song lyrics that gave me the practical advice I needed for successfully traveling on the spiritual path. I did what the songs said and they – in combination with the objective knowledge of astrology and the help of Enlightened Teachers – have made me free. I offer this poetry in the spirit of wanting to pass on the gift of these messages to you.

If you were born with your SUN in VIRGO, you have a gift for restoring order to chaotic situations. This may involve cleaning up messes, organizing schedules, attending to important details or fostering a calm state of mind. When someone wants to regain control of a situation that has gotten “out of hand,” they often call in a Virgo! You may be drawn to the healing arts as you enjoy taking care of others. You take great pride in all that you do and derive joy from a job well done. Because you set high standards, it’s important that you surround yourself with other Sun Signs who can help you to avoid being overly perfectionistic.

The year of 2014 promises to be a year of personal growth. Relationships, both intimate and with authority figures, can deepen as you improve your communication skills. You’ll have the opportunity to expand your network of friends through July 16. As you develop stronger bonds with others, you’ll also be feeling the need to connect with a Higher Power. It will be important to take time for yourself so you can tap into your inner wisdom and get clear about what you value most.

To Maximize the Opportunities Available to You in 2014:
Take advantage of the planetary support available to take charge and transform your life. The potential exists for you to undergo a great deal of emotional growth and deepen your relationships. In order to get the best results, you will be required to commit yourself to being more honest with yourself and others than ever before. Imagining the relationships and situations you dream of can be . . . . .

Your best compass in 2014 will be . . . . .

NUMEROLOGY FORECAST for AUGUST birthdays by Jan Spiller

If your birthday is in another month, select the Numerology Forecast on the Member Homepage for your personal numerology forecast!

If your birthday is in AUGUST, the year 2014 presents an underlying theme of home and family. A desire for taking care of those who are close to you have been stirring.

If you are not currently in a marriage, during this year you may well begin to yearn for that experience to be part of your life. It is a relationship year and the idea of home and close relationships are more important to you than usual.

Service is a keyword of the year and you have felt the desire to help others by going out of your way to bring benefit to those you consider worthy. Although your sense of devotion is strong, you will want to be appreciated for your efforts.

This is an idealistic year for you and your sense of duty is more operative than usual. It’s also a very artistic year and you may find yourself attracted to adding beauty to your environment.

Throughout the year of 2014, people born in AUGUST are learning to follow a sense of duty and loyalty by being of service in domestic situations.

Although this theme is operative in the background for the group of everyone born in AUGUST, your own PERSONAL DESTINY in the year ahead is determined by the numerological total derived from adding your birth month, day and the current year.

If you were born in AUGUST,  to discover tips for navigating your individual year ahead, click on your birth date in the calendar located in the upper left hand corner of the NUMEROLOGY page and you will see what this year holds for you.
