Perspectives from the Sky – Astrological Forecast September 2020
By Leo Knighton Tallarico
As we enter September, we move into the last four months of 2020. The astrological forecast suggests these four months may be more important than any such period of time in our lives.
There are powerful and meaningful planetary movements, another Eclipse Season in November and December, and a new 20-year cycle beginning on Winter Solstice. That cycle has Jupiter conjunct Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius.
This for me is a strong indicator we will be making a turning point journey into the first baby steps of the Age of Aquarius.
And the Presidential Election for the USA happens during these swirling energies of change coming from the planetary alignments.
But even now the energies have been very intense, and with them changes in our real lives, personally and collectively.
4 Planets to Watch
In September and early October, three planets will be moving from Retrograde into Direct movements. These planets are Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. These “outer planets” promise changes in society and in spiritual dimensions of transformation.
And one other planet changes directions during that time: Mars in Aries, its favorite playground. Mars has been shaking things up this second half of 2020. One of its purposes is empowerment. Not “power over” for domination, but instead the power to stand up for oneself and speak one’s Truth.
Astrological Forecast September 2020
September begins with a Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces on September 2nd at 1:22 AM EDT. This annual full moon is meant to be a gentle and kind full moon, as both Virgo and Pisces have that relatively softer presentation.
Virgo can be harsh with criticism, but usually saves the worst of its judgments for itself.
Pisces and Virgo both seek to be of service. Virgo is at its best a humble person, wanting to be of service to what it sees as a good cause or a fine person. Pisces can be very illusive and difficult in expressing its own needs, instead sacrificing itself for the needs of someone else or some spiritual cause.
Use this full moon on the 2nd to help you to let go more and release old ego patterns that do not serve you anymore. We are all becoming more and more transparent and authentic. Let it happen naturally.
An Astrological Forecast for the Election
On September 9th Mars in Aries goes Retrograde, where it will stay until November 14th, eleven days after the election.
There are planetary indications that the results of the election may not be known right away.
Mercury changes from Retrograde to Direct on the night of the Election. The last time that happened was Election night in November of 2000. That night, news anchors went back and forth between Bush and Gore for who would win the presidency. Weeks later the Supreme Court made the decision for Bush.
This year promises confusion of some sort and a non-knowing of truth around the election day.
Mars on September 9th goes Retrograde at 28+ degrees of Aries, promising the likelihood of conflict or war, with finger pointing to USA challenges with North Korea, China, or Iran.
Israel’s Mars is triggered as is Trump’s Mars. With the election getting closer and closer, one can imagine war-like movements from those countries and people.
Those countries may want to take advantage of a weakened America. Or the President of USA could engineer a big conflict to try to save the election for Trump.
These are old paradigm and old Age attitudes. We may not be able to stop the wheels from turning in that direction, now, as that story may already be written.
But we can collectively begin to realize that these kinds of beliefs or actions will destroy humanity, the Earth, and its creatures if we do not change our belief systems of might makes right, dog eat dog, and every man for himself. We are all connected, and we all need to be able to know and feel that reality.
Jupiter Goes Direct
On September 12th, five days before the New Moon in Virgo, Jupiter goes Direct while still in Capricorn.
Emotions and energies are raised from old patriarchal values of obedience for country and President. This may be the attempt to use loyalty and patriotism first and foremost in people’s minds and hearts.
On September 17th, there is a New Moon in Virgo at 7 AM EST. This is a good time to be humble and grateful, to simplify our lives, and to mend, fix, or heal what is in need of those things.
Virgo also tends to make things more real. However, in this case Neptune in Pisces will oppose the planetary alignment of this New Moon in Virgo. Confusion can get in the way of too tight of an agenda and requires one to let go and trust.
Autumn Equinox and the Feminine
On September 22nd at 9:31 AM EDT is the Autumn Equinox, which is Sun in Libra Time.
Autumn Equinox is the time of light and dark being equal, but then it turns to more and more darkness every day. The Libra Scales are evenly matched with Yin and Yang on the Equinox, but then Yin begins to gain more and more influence.
Autumn Equinox feels like a Sunset time of year, as nighttime approaches. Male/Female, Light/Dark, and Yang/Yin keep the scales even before the movement downward.
The Yin/Yang symbol is perfectly known at the Equinox and shows us Spiritual Intention of all opposites to be held by the magical circle of life Unity.
And the Feminine is poised to rise even more now, especially as it knows more and more its value. This value is so important now as more might-is-right beliefs threaten our existence.
Saturn Goes Direct
Saturn goes Direct on September 29th, and as it does father time moves us forward in time, letting us know some things are meant to be.
There is no time to waste, and we are ready for the challenges. We must take responsibility for our lives and the life of our Mother/Home Earth. We the people are here now and must know that we can congregate and enact great change and transformation.
Already these past few years, with energy of the executive branch of government being abusive of its power, we still have pushed forward empowerment movements for women, people of color, and LGBTQ peoples.
The feeling now is that nothing will stop this train of Justice and Equality
Yes, we still face Covid challenges, an economy blowing up—so we can create one that is fair for all the people on Earth—and more human rights challenges.
Biden/Harris will win the election, but god only knows the dark process to get us there. Think of it like an extremely difficult birth of a child. Labor pains are enormous and sometimes it feels like the baby will be lost or compromised.
But the Universe is in charge, Nature is in charge, the Power of the People in the Age of Aquarius is in charge. Do not project our power onto Trump or anyone else. Do not demonize and fear the evil of an all-powerful demon.
We are ready for the Transformation now.
October 1st is a Full Moon in peace or war Libra/Aries. And October 4th brings a movement from Pluto, going from Retrograde to Direct, one month before Election Day and the eclipses. Another exciting astrological forecast awaits us…
