We might not feel it yet with the heat still going strong, but the summer is officially coming to an end with the Equinox. We are entering autumn, which is the time of harvest and reaping the results of our labor and efforts. It is a time to celebrate our bounty with harvest celebrations (Thanksgiving) and gratefulness in our hearts.
What are you grateful for in your life?
This September is a month of great astrological importance because we are having the Equinox, a Solar Eclipse with the Sun in Virgo, as well as a Lunar Eclipse in Pisces. Eclipses are extra powerful New Moons or Full Moons, symbolizing very powerful new beginnings with a longer duration of impact than a normal New or Full Moon. We will feel the eclipses very strongly for a couple of weeks, but they will be impactful for half a year. You can imagine eclipses as re-boots within the area of life in which it falls in your astrological chart. Solar Eclipses are re-boots of consciousness and Lunar Eclipses are re-boots of emotions. You can truly re-invent yourself now!

Autumnal Equinox September 22
The summer is changing towards autumn in the Northern Hemisphere with the second equinox of the year. The autumn equinox, September 22 at 14:21 UTC, marks the point in time when the length of the day equals the length of the night. After the equinox, the nights will be getting longer and with that, slightly shifting our attention and energy flow inwards.
Equinoxes and Solstices in the cycle of the year are energetically super potent times to set intentions, let go of the old, and to participate in prayers and rituals. All over the world, people are coming together to dance around a bonfire at the beach or at special places like Stonehenge. It is a time to dance, celebrate and share your bounty with others.
New Moon Solar Eclipse happening September 1 at 9 degrees in Virgo, at 2:03 am PST
As you know, every New Moon starts us on a new journey of emotional maturation depending upon the sign. With a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo you will become more aware that there is a true need in you to share from your heart. Masterful teacher Tony Robbins talks about the 6 human needs; and the 6th one is the need to contribute to the bigger good. I deeply believe that in order to be truly happy we need to let go of the tiny, ego fixated perspective of ME and instead, experience our individuality in the framework of service to our family, friends and community. This is when we feel deeply satisfied, useful, happy and fulfilled.
Ask yourself how YOU can deepen your commitment to be of greater service and be doing something deeply meaningful with your life, and you will be on your way to finding your right livelihood, your Dharma.
Full Moon Lunar Eclipse happening September 16 at 24 degrees in Pisces, at 12:05 pm PST
A Full Moon always brings light and awareness into the specifics of its sign. A Lunar Eclipse does the same thing only much stronger. In the sign of Pisces, this Eclipse invites you to be the mystic, the poet, the lover and the dreamer. You can become more open in perceiving the non-physical dimensions and underlying realities penetrating your life. The vision of oneness, love and compassion depends on you to manifest in the world. You are the hands of the divine in action. If you integrate these Piscean energies with what started under the Solar Eclipse in Virgo, then that is your invitation to healing and service. This can be the beginning of a deeply satisfying journey towards a new level of being.
Allow yourself to be divinely inspired and up-lifted to your highest vision of who you can be. Every miraculous achievement starts with a dream, which seems to be impossible in the beginning.
It all comes down to: Who do you want to be?
