VEDIC ASTROLOGY BY SAM GEPPI
The mysticism of the Moon throughout the month of September may bring
up hidden sensitivities and emotions. Ground down and tap into your mature
self by being consistent, bold, and open.
We may experience some emotional frustration and battles of will
when the Moon and Mars join in Cancer. Mars is debilitated here,
so we are not feeling so confident and powerful. Add to that the
emotions and sensitivity of the Moon In Cancer, and your “inner
infant” may rear its head.
A new cycle of individuality, courage, and strength begins with
the New Moon in Leo. Now is the time to connect to consistent
actions based on your true and consistent vision. The counterfeit
version of this vision is the up-and-down actions based on your
wavering personal confidence. This is the Leo principle revealed.
This New Moon happens in the Nakshatra of Purva Phalguni,
ruled by the god Bhaga, the god of delight. It is good to be king,
but make sure to also be generous with the spoils of your riches,
rather than just hoarding them for yourself.
This is a very auspicious time with Sun and Venus in their own
signs with Saturn and Mercury exalted. We can expect to feel
connected to our inner light and power (Sun), feel able to express
ourselves and to communicate clearly (Mercury), and have a reasonable, mature relationship with our desires and how high of a
price we are willing to pay to satisfy them (Venus).
Expect some relationship pressure on with the Moon in Libra
with Venus, Saturn and Rahu. There could be a good outcome
as a result of this pressure because Venus and Saturn are both
there in good dignity. It is time to “get real” in many important
relationships (including business ones) now.
It is a great time for study and connecting to higher, philosophical
principles when the Moon is in Sagittarius aspected by Jupiter
in Gemini. In particular, questioning your long-held beliefs and
being inspired by this inquiry is possible. Our beliefs must make
sense to us intellectually, or else they are merely dogmas. Now is
a great time to work that out.
Collective duties and inspirations will be important as the Moon
passes through Aquarius and is aspected by Jupiter and Mars.
However, be careful of impatiently over-asserting your principles
onto your clan or tribe. Both Jupiter and Mars offer inspiration,
drive, and purpose. But these are also energies where we can be a
little too convinced that we are right and everyone else is wrong.
Metaphysical merging and mystical creativity will be a major
theme on September 19 as the Moon is full in Pisces. Yet this
world does not often measure up to all of that metaphysical woo
woo, and instead, we escape from the details of the world (Virgo)
at the bar, into the TV. The Full Moon brings this split into focus,
as the Sun is in Virgo at this time.
This Full Moon is in the Nakshatra of Purva Bhadrapada, which
means “early auspicious foot.” The deity is called Aja Ekapad,
which means one-footed goat. This is related to a lightning strike
that comes from heaven to change our experience. Feel the inspired purpose compelling you toward an auspicious, spiritual
result. Connect this inspiration to the practical world you inhabit.
A fiery, critical heart and mind may be our downfall as the Moon
joins Ketu in Aries and is aspected by Saturn and Venus in Libra.
This is a lot of energy along the relationship axis. Others may really irritate you now, and call out your BS. How will you react?
Integrating your philosophies and personal ideas about them may
come very easily when the Moon and Jupiter join in Gemini. Suddenly, you find the words that express your highest, spiritual purpose. This closes a loop that started with the Moon/Jupiter aspect
of September 14.
September ends the same way it began, with the Moon joining
debilitated Mars in Cancer on September 30. However, now we
may be even more of an emotional baby, as Mars is at its deepest
debilitation point. So the important question now becomes: have
we learned anything this month?
