Astrology Forecast September 2018

General Astrology Forecast September 2018

Before we get to the General Astrology Forecast September 2018, it has to be said….

Crikey! Where has the Summer gone? I don’t know about you, but I am so not ready to let go of Summer yet!

So while September has arrived, I am thankful that we are promised a nice Indian Summer here in the UK, once some turbulent stormy, windy weather passes this weekend.

Talking of turbulent, how have the last five months been for you?

It’s been a time of eclipses and retrograde planets. Communication has been muddled and even the best laid plans have ground to a halt.

However, the Astrology Forecast September 2018 promises more positive times ahead!

What does the Astrology Forecast September 2018 have in store?

The beginning of September 2018 saw four retrograde planets  (Saturn, Pluto, Uranus and Neptune) continuing to muddle things.

On September 05, 2018  the negative retrograde influence of Saturn switched to something more positive as the planet started to move forward again.

Pluto will turn direct on September 30, leaving just Uranus and Neptune in backward motion.

Plans that have been in limbo should start to take shape and we should all feel a lot more motivated.

On September 09 the Virgo New Moon will provide a helpful influence. Remember that one of Virgo’s characteristics is organisation.

A place for everything and everything in its place” describes Virgo to a tee! The Virgo new moon is a time to relish getting organised both mentally and materialisticly.

Be aware though that it won’t all be a breeze. As planets come out of retrograde, they are referred to as being “station”, until they start moving properly forward again.

You know that feeling you get when, as a passenger in the car, the driver suddenly slams the brakes on?

If you are not expecting it, you can be hit by quite a jolt. You shoot forward and then slam back. Then gradually you move forward and momentum is regained.

As retrograde Planets start moving forward again, you can get a similar sort of jolt before your journey becomes a lot smoother.

Watch Out for Mars Tangling with Aquarius and Taurus!

The Astrology Forecast for September 2018 warns us to be careful around the time of September 18.

Thanks to Mars in Aquarius and square to Uranus in Taurus, hot-head, warrior Mars will become tangled with sociable and likeable Aquarius and also stubborn Taurus.

Group dynamics could be affected as a result. This means that  there’s a risk that friends could get mightily irritated with each other.

Tact and diplomacy will be needed and you may just all have to agree to disagree.

Fortunately the Sun enters Libra, the peacemaker, on September 22, followed by a Full Moon in Aries on September 24.

The Aries Full Moon in September 2018 will be VERY unusual!

This is because there will be a total lunar eclipse, a blood moon AND a supermoon.  ALL AT THE SAME TIME!!

What is a Blood Moon?

A blood moon can only happen during a full lunar eclipse, when the Moon is fully in Earth’s shadow.

At the same time, a small amount of light from the Earth’s sunrises and sunsets fall onto the surface of the moon. These light waves are stretched out, making them look red.

This makes the Moon’s surface appear red as the light strikes it. Hence the term “Blood Moon”.

The Effects of the September 2018 Blood Moon

The September 2018 Full Moon is also known as The Harvest Moon.

The purpose of any Full Moon is to encourage us to pause and reflect on what has just gone by. However, because the Full Moon’s position is in Aries, this could make things more difficult.

Impatient Aries finds it hard to think before they act.

This means that The Ram’s influence during the Full Moon could result in knee-jerk reactions, instead of waiting until we have all the facts.

However, the Sun’s position in Libra at the time of the Full Moon, will act as a counter balance. Libra is all about balance and will hopefully influence us to think before we speak or act.

The Full Moon in Aries is also a time when the spotlight will shine on individual needs and accomplishments.

Watch out though! The light under that spotlight could become crowded and it is important not to allow the ego of Aries to make you too selfish.

Self-focused Aries needs to remember that others deserve the spotlight too!

How did all those retrograde planets
affect you over the Summer?
Let us know in the comments below.

What does it mean in Astrology when we say a Planet is Retrograde?

An explanation of what we mean when we say a Planet is Retrograde.

Have you ever sat in a stationary train at the railway station, which is alongside another train? Then, as you watch the other train, it appears to be moving backwards?

But, to start with, you are unsure if the other train is travelling backwards or if your train is moving forwards?

The same happens with the planets. Although all the planets always move around the Zodiac in the same direction, sometimes it looks like some planets are moving backwards. We call this apparent reverse motion of a planet “retrograde” motion.

Retrograde motion happens in several stages. First of all the retrograde planet will appear to stand still, while the other planets continue to move forward. Next the planet appears to start to travel backward through the starsigns, followed by another period when it appears to stop moving, before it resumes its forward motion.

Retrograde motion occurs with all the planets, except the sun and moon.

The inner planets (Venus, Mercury and Mars) spend less time in retrograde motion than the outer planets (Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto). This is because the orbits of the outer planets around the sun take much longer because they are further away. The time a planet will spend in retrograde varies from about 22 days for nearby Mercury to about 160 days for distant Pluto.

A general misconception is that when a planet is retrograde it always signifies something negative or not pleasant. A retrograde planet will prolong the influence of that planet in the sign and house of a horoscope in which it is located. So if that influence happens to be an unpleasant one, the prolonged negativity will be blamed on the retrograde planet.

On the other hand, we need to remember and take note of the fact that if a retrograde planet is producing a more pleasant effect, that too will be prolonged by the retrograde planet.
