An Uncomfortable Cosmic Yr
There isn’t any approach to sugar coat the energetic challenges we confronted this summer time. A handful of planets have been retrograde, eclipses have been rattling our internal and outer worlds, and we collectively started to really feel the energetic shift we’re all getting into collectively. Regardless of the various whopping challenges introduced earlier than us, they have been every useful for our private and collective progress. There have been so many issues we had every outgrown, and but nonetheless held on to.
Ever because the first Blue Moon in January of this yr (and second Blue Moon in March; a really unusual prevalence that gained’t occur once more till 2037), we’ve been on a wild trajectory. This summer time, it felt prefer it had reached its boiling level for many people.
As a result of energetically talking, it did.
All of the modifications occurring within the sky affected every of us in barely alternative ways. On the tail finish of August, we moved into the season of Virgo, one in every of three Earth Indicators. Virgo is an interpersonal signal, which means it’s involved with the connection between individuals. This shift into Virgo triggered every of us to give attention to our safety and stability and the safety and stability of those that are necessary to us.
And with Mercury (planet of communication and ideas) and Mars (planet of motivation, aggression and wishes) shortly going direct shortly after the lunar eclipses we felt this summer time, many people started feeling new motivation and transformation within the areas we really feel stability.
Perhaps that’s your relationships or household.
Perhaps that’s your house.
Perhaps that’s your profession.
Perhaps that’s your well being.
Earlier this yr, exterior planet Uranus – the planet of liberation, change and riot – shifted out of its seven-year stint in Aries and moved into Taurus. Taurus, one other Earth Signal, can also be anchored in stability, security and creature comforts. When the Planet of Insurrection and Liberation strikes into an Earth Signal like this, we all know we might be in for giant change within the areas we sometimes search safety; our houses, careers, romances, and our bodies.
There was a whole lot of shifting into Earth Indicators, forcing us to mirror and determine on the areas we really feel discomfort. Earth power needs us to be snug! Paired with the eclipses (which “eclipse” issues from our lives), this meant massive, dramatic modifications for many people.
Arguably, the extra “off path” we every had turn into, the larger we felt these transformations over summer time. We’re collectively shifting right into a more healthy area as a result of our collective survival is determined by it.
It’s time to degree up!
Once we mirror on Uranus having frolicked in Aries for years, we will see its impacts in how we determine. Aries is a Hearth Signal, filled with motivation, drive, and private pursuits. Aries is infatuated with the way it identifies. With Uranus’s affect, we developed new methods to determine with regard to our gender, sexuality, rights, psychological wellness and extra. We developed phrases we by no means used to have entry to, like cis gender, non-binary, new pronouns, transparency, and extra, simply to assist us search a brand new degree of authenticity.
With Uranus altering indicators and shifting into Taurus, many planets started lining up in Earth indicators, (Mars additionally lined up in Capricorn for the primary chunk of September). We’re going to proceed to really feel an enormous shift this Autumn, notably in what we really feel brings us safety, as a result of it’s crucial that we discover our footing, floor ourselves, and discover consolation within the modifications we made.
Security, safety and stability don’t truly come out of your secure job, your long-term relationship or your lovely apartment; safety and stability can actually solely come from you. YOU are your first residence; your first relationship; your first “job”. None of those exterior issues truly present the consolation we’re in search of, as a result of our “issues” and circumstances don’t outline us.
Don’t get me mistaken; we like to determine with our jobs, our achievements, and particularly our challenges, however that is the subsequent space the place our cosmic focus goes to shift to. As a result of this stuff don’t truly outline us. In the event you take away the truth that you’re a mom, or a author, or a most cancers survivor, or a home-owner – who’re you, really? The reply is there, however it may be troublesome to unearth.
This would be the undercurrent via autumn, and we’ll be processing the modifications in the course of the hibernation season.
HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO FEEL THROUGH EACH MONTH
September will start with actually sensible power. With the Solar in Virgo and a string of planets on different Earth Indicators, we’ll be laying the groundwork for this new chapter we have now entered.
Perhaps you’re shifting or have just lately moved.
Perhaps you’re altering careers, or moving into a brand new position/new duties.
Perhaps your relationship has entered a brand new chapter, and even probably disintegrated.
No matter is being culled from you proper now, or no matter you determined to vary over the summer time, is cosmically in your larger good. Being uncomfortable is the actual indicator that we’re evolving.
Mars Direct will affect us with an enormous push of motivation, and we’ll discover ourselves pulling up power assets we didn’t even know we had!

For the primary half of the month, we’ll be targeted on the small print.
The solar will then shift into Libra, and many people shall be recalculating our current strikes. We could have had an opportunity to develop our new rhythm (hopefully!), and we’ll start to make room to zoom out and analyze how we really feel about every part that has modified in our life.
Can we enhance upon the state of affairs?
Is that this what’s greatest for everybody concerned?
Are we glad and in stability?
For a few of us, Libra will set off a bit of hysteria. Libra is an Air Signal so we’ll be in our heads! However keep in mind: Libra Season is about stability, and determining what you and “your individuals” want with a view to reside in concord.
