September: the Art of Doubt

We are learning to be okay in the highs, lows, in the stillness and in the adventure this month – we are learning to trust that we are exactly where we are supposed to be.  


5-Universal Month in a 5-Universal Year: Double Rainbow

If you like the extroverted energy of the 5, you’ll likely feel the energy to double down and go full steam ahead. It’s great to take a chance on yourself just be mindful of spreading yourself too thin. How can you channel the optimistic, dynamic, and adventurous energy of the 5 to your advantage without the burnout?  

Distractions and inconsistency will come. Doubt will find its way to you. Unprocessed emotions may pop up. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, ask yourself: what do I want to be free from? What can I recalibrate? How can I be more efficient with my energy so that life doesn’t pass me by?



Mercury Retrograde in Libra
It’s important to not overcommit.
When in doubt – don’t force decisions.
What would benefit if you pushed pause, instead of pushing forward?
Would burying the hatchet free you up?

The Moon on the first sets the tone of the monthly reset. With the Moon in Cancer, it’s a good time to focus on resting, healing, and home. Do some cooking and nesting, reassure your loved ones (or inner-child) that all is well. Some may want to tap into Crab-energy and recharge through alone time. Crystal magick: Moonstone (intuition + connection) & Rhodonite (compassion + emotional balance). 

Look at YourSelf
The Sun trines Pluto three times this year – increasing opportunities for you to shed old skins and become more and more yourself. How well have you stepped into the next version of yourself? Standing in both light and darkness is a harmonic balancing act of integrity. 

  • March 16 (acceptance: acknowledge where you are)
  • May 17 (pause, pivot, gain new insights)
  • September 16 (have a new experience)

Week 1: September 1-5

Overview: Conserve your energy, don’t poke the bear. This transit may bring out zealotry and inferiority complexes through Friday (Mars opposite Neptune ℞).

Love & Money: Skewed perceptions. Things aren’t as they seem (Venus inconjunct Neptune ℞). Explore alternative options and renew commitments on Saturday, the 4th (Mercury trine Saturn ℞ + Sun inconjunct Chiron ℞). Circle Sunday the 5th for a hot mess of breakups, breakdowns, steamy connections, and breakthroughs (Venus semisextile Mars + squares Pluto ℞, Mars trine Pluto ℞).

Week 2: September 6-12

Overview: Sparks fly (the good kind). Try something different, make a new friend, answer the phone. Improve your life, but stay on your own mat. Sometimes people don’t want or need our help. In fact, our ‘help’ often hinders the person we wish to help. Anne Lamott reminds us: “help is the sunny side of control.” The chick would never have the strength it needs to get through life if we helped it hatch. Become aware of any enabling or people pleasing tendencies, and encourage people/yourself to bloom on their own. (Sun trine Uranus ℞, Mars inconjunct Jupiter ℞)

Let your inner-Einstein loose! It’s time for a meeting of the mind, team building activities, and think tanks. Shift gears, dissolve old ideas, take an inventory of your thought-life, meditate to clear your mind, focus on positive memories. Consider radical forgiveness for yourself and others to usher in new life (Mercury opposite Chiron ℞ and inconjunct Uranus ℞ )

Love & Money: Circle September 6th for the best day of the month for getting lucky in love and money. Planetary influences increase your love and worth – try a new approach for best results (Venus trine Jupiter ℞ + New Moon + Sun trine Uranus ℞).

September 6, 2021: NEW MOON [14-VIRGO]
New Moon Intention: I find clarity, serenity, and joy in the journey.

Make wishes around health, organization, and anything that requires attention to detail. This phase signifies new beginnings and is a great time to set intentions wherever 14-Virgo is in your chart.

  • Blending the old with the new
  • New health routines
  • Organization & Cleanliness
  • Mountain Air
  • Change Your Address Numerology (then detox/purge/cleanse on the FM)


September 10: Venus enters Scorpio where she inspires us to wonder about the mysteries of life. Love takes on a deeper meaning, finances get a boost, and work-life feels more empowering. The magick of life works when you work it through October 7.


Week 3: September 13-19

Overview: Rumors, deception, things don’t go as planned. Caution lights also come on around drugs, alcohol, and temptation. Take it easy (Sun opposite Neptune ℞). Be realistic – and be careful not to overcommit, things can get easily misinterpreted and blown out of proportion (Sun inconjunct Jupiter ℞:).

Watch for symbols/metaphors, hidden agendas, mental illness, and propaganda. Let a little time pass before the truth is revealed. Stay connected to your Source and all is well (Mercury inconjunct Neptune ℞).

Love & Money: Tackle important events earlier in the week. Time, expenses, people, the weight of responsibility all become stickier at the end of the week (Venus square Saturn ℞).

September 13, 202: First Quarter Moon [21-Sagittarius]: Write your bucket list with a plan for executing at least one item on it. You have this one life and this present moment – it’s time to live. This yang phase signifies decision making, determination, and commitment to action wherever 12-Sagittarius is in your chart.

September 14, 2021: Mars enters Libra: Mars in Libra stimulates a need to find the win-win through October 30. While that sounds great (and is!), this energy can result in people-pleasing and disempowering behaviours when we let go of what we really want in order to find a balance that would make other people happy. Stay focused on your own internal justice system: what is right for you? How can you stand up for yourself but not against the other person? Invitation: tackle your inner state of balance through yoga and meditation.

Week 4: September 20-26

Overview: Trust in divine right timing. Success in business or legal affairs, interest in a higher quest, flow in articulating messages through writing and educating are available this week. (Mercury trine Jupiter ℞). Caution lights come on mid-week: Be aware of misrepresentation and deception. If things look too good to be true, they probably are (Mercury square Pluto ℞).

Weekend Skies offer perseverance, tact, and stamina to get the job done. This is an optimal time to commit yourself to a project where you want to see lasting success (Mars trine Saturn). 

Love & Money:  Lookin for love in all the wrong places. The treasure is in your own heart – take yourself out on a self-care date if needed September 20 (Venus inconjunct Chiron ℞). 

Opposites attract mid-week. Diversify, blend wacky interests, push up against what you aren’t to determine what you are. Heads up: there may be some unexpected expenses or curve balls. You got this! (Venus opposite Uranus ℞)

September 20, 2021: FULL MOON [28-PISCES]

Full Moon Intention: My experience feels whole and soul-self-aligned.

Emotions are on high with a Full Moon in intuitive Pisces. Go with your gut feelings. This phase signifies the completion of a cycle, endings, and closure wherever 28-Pisces is in your chart. What can you end well?

  • finding compassion with something that has come full circle
  • healthy boundaries 
  • finishing an inspiring book or movie series
  • detoxification of the mind, body, and living spaces

September 22, 2021: Sun enters Libra: Happy Birthday Libra! Tap into your harmonic, peacemaking, and grateful Libra vibes through October 22. (Pssst… We have gifts and birthday readings for your Libra at


Week 5: September 27-30

Overview: Pump the breaks. Mercury retrograde delays things that need more of your attention. This is a great week to edit, rewrite goals, remember, rectify, and re-anything that needs re-ing. What would benefit if you pushed pause, instead of pushing forward?

Love & Money: Get inspired on the 29th, slow your roll on the 30th. Romance, fantasy, and creativity reign mid-week (Venus trine Neptune ℞) but don’t miss the forest for the trees (Venus square Jupiter ℞). Sticky business, sugar overload, and buttering up the boss are all forms of excess worth monitoring right now. Positive change through commitment is always available, but even more potent on the 28-29th (Sun trine Saturn ℞).

September 27: Mercury ℞ in 25-Libra: Pump the breaks. You may be questioning issues from both sides right now. The subtle energies support your curiosity in finding balance. What do you need to review/revise/redo while Mercury is retrograde? Normal merc issues apply: electronics and cars can cause delays, traffic can be heavier, etc. Leave some breathing room in your schedule to allow room for error. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Mercury Retrogrades from September 27 [25-Libra] to October 18, 2021 [10-Libra]

September 28: Last Quarter Moon [6-Cancer]: Loosen your sense of control. Where can you lighten up and let go? This yin phase signifies receptivity and a willingness to trust, surrender, and let things take their course wherever 6-Cancer is in your chart. Crystal magick: Moonstone (intuition + connection) & Rhodonite (compassion + emotional balance)

Looking Ahead

We will be synthesizing the energy of the year in the fourth quarter. October will bring opportunities to balance, blend, and unify with a New Moon in Libra, and an Aries Full Moon. October is a 6-universal numerology month, which is a preview for 2022 (a 6-Universal Year). Focus on the heart, unconditional love, and compassion. Emotional waters, gut instincts, and psychic development come naturally when you choose to take care of your energy. Inner child care, self-care, and nurturing yourself with healthy choices is critical this month.
