Perspectives from the Sky – Astrological Forecast for September 2017
by Leo Knighton Tallarico
A new day is dawning in America, and from what we have been witnessing during the Eclipse Season, it is a sometimes difficult transition.
As we approached the second eclipse of August, an awesome Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo, several wars were triggered or potentially triggered. Islamic State perpetrated three terror attacks in Russia, Finland and most devastatingly in Spain.
Culture war was ignited in Charlottesville, Virginia.
In Korea, a war of words between North Korea and the United States came close to opening a Pandora’s Box of World War III.
Eclipse Season continues…
Though both August eclipses have now passed, Eclipse Season continues through September. Events that have reference to what was happening surrounding the eclipses of August 7th and 21st will unfold in September and beyond.
The new day dawning in America brings us into a most intense phase of America’s transformation from an old Age into a New Age of Aquarius.
The United States’ natal chart from July 4, 1776, has its Moon in Aquarius. That Moon in Aquarius is representative of the core USA value of “All Men are created equal with… inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
In the Age of Aquarius, “all men are created equal” becomes All People Are Created Equal. And not just in America but all over the world.
No room for Superpowers…
In this new multi polar world, there is no room or need for Superpowers or for the powerful to run the world.
The UN Security Council, who have most of the power in that institution, is made up of rich countries, each with nuclear weapons. And those countries want to stop other countries from having them? Of course, countries will want those weapons. As they can clearly see, nuclear weapons bring more power and voice in the world.
So, the Military Industrial Complex will need to transform into something else. That something else will not be the current unfair economic system or unfair military power structure.
And so, war and economic downturn will very likely happen in order for a transformed world to manifest.
I surely hope it happens in another way, like divine intervention, a world-wide awakening, or alien intervention, for instance.
Nevertheless, this New Chapter is beginning during this current Eclipse Season, and what happens during or not long after will give us powerful signs of what is to come.
Remember that the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo moved exclusively across the USA, which is quite meaningful as a focus of world events on the country.
Mercury is still Retrograde…
Mercury is still Retrograde as we enter September, but it turns back to the relative clarity of Direct movement on September 5th, with the Full Moon in Pisces the next day September 6th at 3:03 AM EDT.
This is a turning point to seeing more clearly, with better understanding, what has been happening in our world and personal lives during this Eclipse Season.
It does take Mercury a few days after it turns direct before it is back to normal. So, be patient for a few days for more complete clarity to form.
The Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces is meant to motivate us to surrender to the process and to the Universe. Forcing issues will not work now.
Before this turning point time period of September 5/6, Mars trines Uranus on September 2nd, showing us more radical energies at work. Also it will trigger the Total Solar Eclipse that just passed, as Mars will be at 28+ degrees of Leo, exactly where the Eclipse happened. Look for issues connected to the Total Eclipse to resurface.
The lunar cycle…
On September 13th, we enter the 4th quarter of the current lunar cycle. The current lunar cycle began at the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 21st. Also on September 13th, the Sun squares Saturn.
A New Moon in Virgo at 1:30 AM EDT on September 20th begins a lunar cycle of grounded reality. It is time to stop, reflect, and prepare for new beginnings.
Whatever was initiated at the Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 21st, is taken down to Earthly manifestation after September 20th. Making things more simple and realistic is aligned right now. It is time to clean up, fix up, bring order, and simplify one’s life.
The Autumn Equinox comes…
A couple days later on September 22nd, we have the Autumn Equinox, a time of equality for light and dark minutes of the day. This time of year is metaphorically similar to sunset time of day. The darker minutes grow every day now until the Winter Solstice, the zenith time of darkness in the Northern Hemisphere.
Then on September 28th energies increase in intensity, as Jupiter sextiles Uranus and Pluto changes directions from retrograde to direct.
Whatever has been sleeping or staying put will be aroused and awakened now. Events in the world will tend to erupt again surrounding this date.
In personal lives and in the world, there is an uncovering of previously held secrets or inner traumas. There could be a catharsis from human interactions, bringing about a renewal or rebirth like the Phoenix Rising.
This time period is ripe for transformation and change, at the least the winds of change will be getting stronger.
As we prepare to enter October…
It is getting more and more clear there is trouble in the USA. The Trump presidency is like Caligula during the decay of Rome. He is so focused on his own ego that he is without concern for the country, the world, humanity, the Earth, or the future.
If indeed we are in the throes of world transformation into a new Age of Aquarius, ugly and painful as it is right now, perhaps he is acting out the role that will best facilitate that transformation.
