Welcome to the September Monthly Horoscope 2016 For All Zodiac Signs!
Theme of the Month:
Are you ready to reap your harvest?
After the Light of the Sun helps the seedlings of the Spring grow and strengthen, the harvest of our bounty is upon us.
Virgo represents this transition from growth into maturity. After the fun and excitement of Leo, Virgo brings us back down to earth and reminds us that there’s still a reality to deal with, and that the practical details of life don’t go away just because we’d rather be having fun.
Systems and processes are important aspects of the Virgo way of going about things. Virgo energy tends to be very organized, and even if that organization isn’t physically expressed, it’s usually pretty astonishing how organized the minds and thoughts of Virgo energy people are. Virgo also seems to indicate an incredible wealth of practical knowledge, which serves people with strong Virgo energy well in getting things done and providing for themselves.
If we consider that Taurus represents what has us feel comfortable and secure in our lives, Virgo would be how we go about bringing those security elements into our lives through our everyday activities. Virgo is the practical application of the information we learn and know in our everyday lives, and it is how we apply that knowledge to make tangible progress in our lives.
So what does all of that have to do with reaping our harvest?
The seeds we planted in the spring during the time of Aries are now coming to fruition. We have the opportunity to see what is showing up in our lives, as well as what has failed to show up in our lives. It’s our chance to see just how healthy our thoughts and actions really have been (and maybe still are), as we now reap what we have sown.
I invite you to think back to what you were (or may have been) clearly and confidently thinking about back in late March and early April.
- Did you make any choices for or about any aspect(s) of your life?
- Were you planting seeds for what you wanted to create for yourself and your life? If so, what are you seeing now as result?
- Have your seeds of thought grown and become ready for harvest in the reality of your life?
Look at where Virgo falls in your astrological chart to discover or affirm the areas of your life where you seek and find harvest in your life. You may also find guidance as to where and how you may best utilize this energy in your personal life journey.

New Moon in Virgo
This month we have a New Moon in Virgo on September 9, 2016.
The astrological pictures for this month start off with the New Moon in Virgo (September 9), which planted the “seeds” of a power-packed month to come. And that promise has been more than fulfilled as we fast approach this Full Moon in 22 degrees of Pisces on September 16th… …the Autumn Equinox on September 22nd, 2016.
The New Moon in Virgo symbolise “separating the wheat from the chaff”. This is a month to be particularly discriminating about what ideas, information, and values you allow into your life, for Virgo is a very practical sign. It’s not only about criticizing what we don’t like, it’s about figuring out what you do want and then taking the responsibility to manifest it in your life. If you don’t, someone else will step in to fill the void and take that choice away.
Full Moon in Pisces
This month we have a Full Moon in Pisces on September 16, 2016.
September 16th Full Moon occurs in the sign of Pisces at 19:05 GMT. As we know, the Full Moon is the culmination or “cresting point” of the 14 day wave cycle which begins with the previous New Moon cycle.
To recap briefly, the themes brought up with the September 1st, 2016 New Moon in Virgo: Virgo, the sign of Mother Earth, shifts our focus to practical matters, especially in relation to our bodies, our health, our Earth, and how we are caretaking or squandering our energy and our resources.
On a psychological level, create boundaries for yourself. “Weed out” toxic people, places, and things from your life. If an old habit has become burdensome, let it go! Virgo encourages purity in mind, body and spirit. It discourages co-dependent behavior. If your environment it toxic, do something to clean it up. If your relationships are toxic, see where you can “clean them up”. Take a practical action, and take Responsibility for yourself. It will do a lot for your Spirit!
The sign of Pisces, is the sign that rules Neptune, and is associated with the great cosmic ocean of life, the collective karma, spiritualism, compassion, Christ consciousness, art, music, mysticism AND physics, psychic healing, and interesting, petroleum and the oil industry!
The “shadow” side of Pisces brings up victimization, collective fears, escapism, spiritual “fog”, CHAOS, religious bigotry and “scape-goating”.
Expect to see ALL of these issues in the forefront of the news over the next two weeks. Look for major themes to also revolve around food, housing, energy shortages, and price gouging rather than the total death and destruction and lack of humane response that we saw with Hurricane Katrina. It is no accident that Texas and the Gulf region are associated with big religion and big oil!
September 22,2016 Autumn Equinox( Northern Hemisphere) at 14:21 GMT.
The Autumn Equinox is the exact moment when the Sun enters 0 degrees Libra denoting a time of cosmic balance and harmony. This has been celebrated since the dawn of mankind as the “balancing of the polarities of male and female”; yin and yang, darkness and light.
In shamanic and earth based cultures all over the planet, this day was ( and is, for many still) commemorated as a major turning point of the year (equinoxes and solstices) and sacred rituals for fertility and abundance are celebrated.
It is the time of “harvesting the grain” and celebrating the fruits of the earth. The Community came together as one to honor the Earth Mother. Children conceived during these celebration times were considered to have “special gifts” of prophecy and healing.
Take the time out of your busy day today to reflect on “all your relations”. How is your relationship with yourself? Are you in balance? What would you like to attract into your life in terms of significant other? Light a candle on your special altar and give thanks for all the blessings in your life, especially for your loved ones. Take the time today to tell your spouse, friend, lover, child or parent how much you appreciate and love them. Buy yourself some flowers….adopt a pet…or donate to a shelter…open your heart to Love……giving and receiving is a delicate balance and does require some practice and lots of patience.
Don’t be hard or critical of yourself if you are “alone” and not with a partner at this time. All living things feel love. Lavish your love generously to nature, to God, to children, animals…..to those who have less than you. In no time, your heart will beat to a different drummer, and the Love of your life will hear its call.
If you don’t have a “special” place or altar in which to do your meditations or journal work, it is very easy to create a ‘sacred space” in your life. Take one corner of a room, preferably quiet, with no computers or TV nearby, as your space. You can place a small plant there, crystals, sacred stones, special “keepsakes”, whatever you like. The idea is to make it “yours”, and even by just standing or sitting there, you immediately remember and feel your connection to Spirit and to Mother Earth. The rest will just “flow”…no judgement…just “be”!
