The Cosmic Month Ahead - September 2021

September Cosmic Month Ahead

 

Welcome to the Cosmic Month Ahead

Each week I share with you the energetic changes of the Moon along with any other significant planetary events to be aware of.

In astrology we refer to the most intense moment of an event or change as being 'exact' however quite often we feel the build-up and the wind-down from these events a few days before and a few days after.

Below I share with you the days where the changes are exact but consider that you feel the impact before and after.

Use this guide to support the week ahead and find alignment and flow based on the energies available to you.

"The energy of the cosmos meets you exactly where you are"

I update this blog with the Cosmic Week ahead every Friday for the week beginning the following Monday.

Monday 13th September - Sunday 19th September

Monday 13th

First Quarter Moon - Identify the discomfort

  • The First Quarter Moon is a Square between the Sun and Moon and it brings our first exchange of challenging energy to the cycle as we notice where we feel uncomfortable and what changes need to be made.
  • The First Quarter Moon requires our attention as an 'active' rather than passive phase it is up to you to make things happen.
  • Check back with your goals, dreams and wishes set at the New Moon and previous New Moons and make sure that you are still putting your energy and focus in the right places.
  • Where there is discomfort, friction or frustration, use this as an opportunity to move forward without your insecurities and fear taking hold.
  • The First Quarter (and the Last Quarter) Moon is a test where the Universe is just checking to see if you really want what you asked for. Now is your chance to prove it.

Tuesday 14th

Void of Course Moon 11:57 - 12:34 UK Time

  • Find stillness and connect with the present moment.

Moon enters Capricorn 12:34 UK Time

Moon in Capricorn - Make Plans & Organise

  • The Moon is now in the Earth sign of Capricorn and as a Capricorn Moon myself I am always triggered into organisation and systemisation with this sign.
  • Capricorn loves to make plans, the energy is great for looking at the bigger picture of those plans, especially when it support long term growth.
  • This sign brings a slow and steady pace to the world around us.
  • Capricorn is interested in the long term benefits and goals and encourages you to view achieving your ambitions through slow, steady movement forward.

Moon in Aquarius - Be a Rebel

  • The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius which encourages flow
  • Ruled by Uranus, The Great Awakener, be open-minded to the flow of information coming your way at this time. It's best not to dismiss something just because it's a little different. In fact, embracing something different is a great way to shake things up.......unless you're perfectly content exactly where you are of course.
  • Aquarius energy can be a bit of a wild card or rebel.

Friday 17th

Waxing Gibbous Moon - Trust the process

  • This is the last phase before the Full Moon and during this time we feel the energy building each day.
  • The waxing gibbous is the time to trust.
  • When we push too much we can meet resistance and sometimes we need to trust that the process is happening, even when we can’t see it.
  • Explore the details, use your skills and restore balance where needed.

Saturday 18th

Void of Course Moon 10:14 - 21:23 UK Time

Moon enters Pisces 21:23 UK Time

Moon in Pisces - Emotional Expansion

  • Water Moons are connected to feelings and emotions. However, Pisces has an additional spiritual vibrational frequency to the sign.
  • There is an expansiveness and limitlessness to the energy. This can feel overwhelming, but instead, try to see it with curiosity and wonder and see what happens.
  • Instead of looking at the next few days as an emotionally sensitive time. Embrace the energetic access to forgiveness and compassion especially towards yourself.

Friday 10th

Waxing Crescent - Start Moving Forward

  • As we enter the Waxing Crescent phase of the lunar cycle we officially leave the New Moon energy and start to increase and expand in our lives in the same way the Moon increases and expands in the sky.
  • This is a time to take action to make your goals and dreams come true. Yes, it’s good to plan but if we don’t take action then those plans will remain as seeds. Think of this as the time to start making movements with courage and faith, building momentum and creating ripples and waves that will help you create those dreams.
  • Although the New Moon is associated with new beginnings and starting something fresh we don't often know what that thing is until we start moving into the waxing phase of the lunar cycle.

Sunday 12th

Void of Course Moon 06:32 - 09:35 UK Time

 Have a great week!

Monday 30th August - Sunday 5th September

The week ahead has us experiencing the waning phases of the lunar cycle.

The Waning Moon - Release, Make Space & Slow Down.

The waning moon phases consist of the:

  • Full Moon
  • Waning Gibbous
  • Last Quarter
  • Waning Crescent

As the Moon moves from Full to New she is getting smaller and less bright in the sky. As she does so her energetic influence subsides and the direction of focus becomes more internal.

During the waning phases of the lunar cycle we slow down, are more introverted and crave greater solitude and peace.

Frustration often arises when we are unable to indulge in this energetic downturn.

We are heading towards the New Moon in Virgo on 7th September

Monday 30th

Last Quarter Moon - Inner Conflict

  • The Last Quarter Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon form a challenging aspect known as a Square.
  • Here we are still riding the wave of the lessons experienced at the Full Moon but the Square brings inner conflict to the surface.
  • This is the time where we are tested. Things may come up that make you question if you made the right decision or if you're on the right path.
  • Remember that this is not proof that you made the wrong choice but instead see it as an opportunity to re-affirm what you have set out to do.
  • This can be an uncomfortable moment as doubt sets in and you look for evidence that you are on the wrong path.
  • Change the narrative by hanging in there are proving that the choices you make in life are good and sound. And remember that even when things don't work out the way you hoped the lessons you experience are setting you up for the future.

Tuesday 31st

Void of Course Moon 20:48 - 05:25 tomorrow UK Time

  • Find stillness and connect with the present moment.
  • This is a great time to digitally detox, journal, get out into nature or do something that makes you feel good.

Wednesday 1st

Moon in Cancer - Nurture & Self-Care

  • This is a time for nurture and self-care.
  • If you find yourself feeling stressed or anxious you will want to retreat to the comfort of your home. In fact, the more quiet alone time you can grab today the better.
  • Water Moon provide us with a way to explore feelings and emotions and in Cancer, this comes in the form of sensitivity and caring.

Thursday 2nd

The energy continues from Wednesday

Friday 3rd

Void of Course Moon 05:37 - 15:59 UK Time

  • Find stillness and connect with the present moment.
  • This is a great time to digitally detox, journal, get out into nature or do something that makes you feel good.

Waning Crescent - Slow down and go within

  • The Waning Crescent Moon is the final phase of the lunar cycle before we begin again at the New Moon.
  • During this phase, the Sun and the Moon are nudging closer together ready for the conjunction at the New Moon when they occupy the same degree of the same sign.
  • The energy of this phase is all about the ending of a cycle. We are in the final throws of letting go, releasing and creating space.
  • But at the same time we are facing forward and getting excited for a new cycle to begin and the fresh adventure that lies ahead.
  • This phase is your permission slip to withdraw from the world for a little while. As you reflect on the past and consider the future, limiting your distractions will make this easier to do.
  • This isn't a time for action, but instead, one of reflection as there is more information to come about the next stage of our journey.
  • If you choose only one phase of the lunar cycle to journal, then this is the most rewarding one to choose. Allow yourself to go deep. And don't worry about it making any sense just yet. That will come as the energy increases during the next lunar cycle.
  • You will notice that your energy wanes along with the light of the Moon. As she gets smaller in the sky, you will feel drawn to direct your energy internally rather than externally. And that's okay. It's all part of the ebb of flow of the cosmic energies.
  • Change is around the corner.
  • Be patient.
  • Be mindful.
  • And be gentle.

Moon in Leo - Find Passion in Creativity

  • The Moon is now in the sign of Leo for the next couple of days.
  • This fire Moon brings a boost of energy, creativity and flair to the vibe.
  • Fire Moons are active and transformative and in the sign of Leo, we get a hit of creativity and passion.
  • Place your focus where your passions lie.

Saturday 4th

The energy continues from Friday

Sunday 5th

Dark of the Moon

There are a variety of definitions about when the Dark of the Moon begins including:

  • The final phase of the lunar cycle, the Waning Crescent.
  • The last dark night before the New Moon is exact as this will be the darkest evening of the cycle.
  • Or when the Moon and the Sun enter the same sign of the zodiac.

I personally like the 3rd option because as soon as the Moon and Sun are in the same sign of the zodiac my Moon work for the New Moon can begin.

As the Moon enters the sign of Virgo tonight we are in the ark of the Moon.

This is when I start to reflect on:

  • The intentions I have for the cycle ahead
  • What goals I would like to achieve
  • The dreams I want to work towards
  • And how I want to feel while all of this is happening.
