Reading for the Month
For the Reading of the Month I used a 3 card spread for Opportunities for the Month,
Challenges for the Month and Actions to take for the Month.
Opportunities for the Month:
Opportunities For The Month: The card that appears in the ‘opportunities’ position for the month of September is ‘Beginnings’. This card depicts A colorful birdlike creature surrounded by flames. The flames represent initiation and the bird represents an animal of lightness and flight. The spiritual meaning of this card suggests the excitement of having a new experience and that each chance for change can be anticipated with amazement and surprise. The card ‘Beginnings’ implies having a sense of faith, of a new opportunity for adjustment and seeds of intention being planted for a dream to grow and manifest.
The word ‘beginning’ also suggest the ability to start over, to seek a different direction. On the 6th there is a new Moon in the sign of Virgo. New Moons open the way for making new choices, for changing your mind, for taking a different course of action and starting fresh. The sign of Virgo represents health, being of service and having the gift of a deductive mind. This sign arrives towards the end of summer when the flowers are in full bloom and crops are being harvested. It is during this time of the year where you can sense that a change of season is coming, and it is often revealed in an occasional cool breeze that alerts you that fall is on the way. This is a good moment to prepare for a shift of energy or some sort of change. The card ‘Beginnings’ wants you to be aware that nothing stays the same and that new period of transition is on the way. Virgo is an earth sign that utilizes deductive reasoning and a sign that appreciates effort. The question what have you analyzed about your life and where do you need a new ‘beginning?’ Where in your life do you need a healthy adjustment or a chance to be of service by assisting someone else? A new start can also mean looking beyond your own needs to plants the seeds of compassion within your life. Look below to see how the new Moon in Virgo might influence you this month:
Aries: Are you feeling a bit odd about the loyalty of a certain person? Have you befriended someone and you’re not sure if they are as trustworthy as you once thought? Your instincts are indicating that something is off and actually if you’re thinking this way your gut is telling you that something is wrong. The new Moon in Virgo helps to pin point past events that will verify your feelings about this matter. Not knowing the truth is affecting your mental peace. Be prepared to grasp those details you’ve missed in the past. The new Moon will help you out. Best Days: 4,5,12,13,21,22,23. Most Stressful Days: 1,2,8,9,14,15,29,30.
Taurus: Disorganization has no room in your life at this time. You’re inspired to get your act together and become more organized this new Moon. Your brain cells are kicked up a notch and If you’ve struggled with keeping things in order in the past your creative nature takes over and instills the ability to pull stuff together. The status of your love life can a major focal point. Not knowing what to do regarding your future with certain people can be settled if you’re ready to make a decision. Get rid of the confusion. Best Days: 6,7,14,15,24,25. Most Stressful Days: 4,5,10,11,17,18.
Gemini: Show your home some love by uplifting the vibrations this new Moon. Allow the ‘detailed-oriented’ Virgo Moon to go over your environment like a fine tooth comb and pick out those areas that need special attention. Peace of mind is very important to you as an air sign and you need as much ‘airy space’ possible to think freely and without interference of clutter. Focus on getting your closets in order. A brand new season is on the way and clearing your space of unneeded items is extremely helpful. Best Days: 8,9,17,18,26,27. Most Stressful Days: 6,7,12,13,19,20.
Cancer: Your mind is lively this new Moon. Different and interesting thoughts attract your attention and might be consumed with doing some sort of research or investigating an issue that won’t go away. This new Moon in the ‘see everything’ sign of Virgo aids in uncovering that information you’ve been looking for…so expect satisfaction in your finding. But conversations can be equally as pleasing with someone volunteering a few choice details. This is an excellent time to chat and network. Best Days: 1,2, 10,11, 19,20,29,30. Most Stressful Days: 8,9,14,15,21,22,23.
Leo: This new Moon points you in different direction to grow and add to the balance in your bank account. Items that have been causing extra expense catch your eye and are eliminated quickly. New ideas to stimulate greater cash flow pop into your mind and increases the confidence to move and activate them. You’ll be rewarded with following your thoughts and obeying your intuition when it comes to adjusting your finances. Expect some positive outcomes this month. Best Days: 4,5,12,13,21,22,23. Most Stressful Days: 10,11,17,18,24,25.
Virgo: Your brain cells are hungry for knowledge. The new Moon encourages mental growth. If you had an urge to go to school or continue your education the doors are open to fulfill your mental needs. You’ll have the determination to push forward to meet your goals regardless of how many times you’ve planned to register for school and didn’t follow through. And if higher education is not an issue you might have the desire to get more information thru self learning and study. Preparing for a test to get a job promotion is also favorable this lunar cycle. Best Days: 6,7,14,15,24,25. Most Stressful Days: 12,13,19,20,26,27.
Libra: Avoid talking about money amongst friends. You might be setting yourself up for a loan request or having someone thinking you have more resources than you really have and you don’t need to join them in opportunities to create more financial security. Besides, you never really know just how well another person is doing and shouldn’t want to seem callous or unfeeling when speaking on the subject of finances. What people don’t know about your bank account won’t hurt them or you. Keep it to yourself. Best Days: 8,9,17,18,26,27. Most Stressful Days: 1,2,14,15,21,22,23,29,30.
Scorpio: Some people don’t deserve your energy. Your circle of friends need to be evaluate closely to determine if you’re surrounded by supporters or those who sabotage. The new Moon puts a different spin on why certain people are hanging around or just hanging on. Be open minded to the events that occur around the new Moon and avoid being too judgmental. Embrace situations as they are. The truth is something that stands on its own, and acknowledging the truth is something you should practice more of. Best Days: 1,2,10,11,19,20,29,30. Most Stressful Days: 4,5,17,18,24,25.
Sagittarius: Your climb to reaching career success can be closer than you realize. The planets are preparing a big career promotion that you’ll see coming in a few months. Don’t give up your momentum just because you’re not seeing the progress you want at this time…things are prospering quietly under your feet, if you check with your intuition you’ll get more insight. Don’t be afraid to work harder at your dream. The more effort you apply, the greater the reward. You’ll soon be glad you did. Best Days: 4,5,12,13,21,22,23. Most Stressful Days: 6,7,19,20,26,27.
Capricorn: Whether you know it or not, you have a good reputation among your associates. Behind your back complimentary things are being said about you. You are admired because of the way you carry yourself and how people see a strong sense of integrity. Seeking new circles of friendships won’t be hard, some people are very anxious to know you better. The new Moon invites you to be assertive and join a couple of different social circles. You could use a few new faces in your life. Best Days: 6,7,14,24,25. Most Stressful Days: 1,2,8,9,21,22,23,29,30.
Aquarius: You’ve had some time to think about your future and the new Moon wants you to consider your financial future. Great things can happen in terms of growing monetary security and having the comfort of knowing that you don’t have to struggle with every emergency that arises. Look for hearty investments and get information for others who are also involved in securing their resources. This is an excellent month to get started with figuring out new financial avenues. Consider joining a crowd that are thinking like you. Best Days: 8,9,17,18,26,27. Most Stressful Days: 4,5,10,11,24,25.
Pisces: Your partner in love better have a good explanation about something questionable that happened not too long ago. An action taken by your loved one has you doubting their true feelings about you. The new Moon in the ‘insightful’ sign of Virgo aids you uncovering hidden acts and intentions. Don’t ignore any pieces of information that surface during the new Moon. The method of delivery might be odd, but the substance of the information is right on time. Best Days: 1,2,10,11,19,20,29,30. Most Stressful Days: 6,7,12,13,26,27.
Challenges of the Month:
Challenge of the Month: The card appearing in the 'challenging' position for the month of September is ‘Crowd Surfing.’ This card shows a person in the mist of a crowd of unknown faces and the person turning their face towards a bright light hovering above. The spiritual meaning of this card is to avoid being over whelmed by the energy of others and not to lose oneself when placed in a sea of external vibrations. This card suggests for some empathic people that being surrounded by several individuals can present a problem of focus, and that too many energies can create a loss of concentration. For instance when attending gatherings, parties, public affairs an empath
seems to get loss in the crowd and some times forgetting their reason for being there. They may experience too many inputs of vibrations happening all at the same time. In order to avoid this a ‘sensitive’ person should energetically focus their attention on a specific purpose and not get lost in the sensations of the crowd. Your challenge is to turn off the outside forces and tune into the internal voices. On the 20th, there is a full Moon in the sign of Aries. Full Moon uncovers hidden information and accentuates the intuition. Do you often feel off balance in the mist of a crowd? Are you paying attention more to the actions or vibes of those around you rather than your reason for being in a particular place? The sign of Aries represents aggressiveness, self focus, vitality and independence. Redirecting your thoughts on your goals and personal projects can help you ignore the energetic intrusion you might encounter from time to time. Look below to see how the full Moon in Aries might influence you this month:
Aries: Establishing independence is the way to go this full Moon. Not only might you attempt to avoid certain people, but there are a few habits you’re willing to walk away from as well. There is an internal sense that certain situations are getting in the way of your focus and you’ll be challenge to make the adjustments necessary to remove them. The full Moon reveals matters that are not working for your highest good and you’ll have no problem in ‘seeing’ the reasons why you should walk away.
Taurus: Betrayal on the job will be discovered this full Moon. Someone has been very two-faced with you at work. They pretend to be your friend while at the same time telling your personal business to other coworkers and they’ve been very good at it up until this full Moon. You’ll realize what’s been happening once you stop sharing your private details. The back stabber appears to be irritated at your closed lips. Actions reveal intent. Watch the behavior of those you’ve been close with.
Gemini: You can feel time slipping away. Those ‘dream’ projects that you’ve been wanting to initiate and haven’t done yet is beginning to weigh heavy on your mind. The full Moon brings back visions of a goal that is dear to you and would make a great deal of difference in your sense of accomplishment if you tried to work on it. You’ll get great planetary assistance with anything you need to redo or improve on. Don’t keep wasting time.
Cancer: Bad actions cause problems on the job this full Moon. A coworker seems to ‘walk’ on your feelings without regard and you won’t have it. Be aware that an explosion of emotions will have negative consequences if you allow yourself to be affected by their insensitivity. Toughen your skin and protect your feelings, reacting creates a work situation that is not in your favor and creates future problems. Ignore anything that happens and take all comments with a ‘grain of salt’ you’ll have a chance for revenge sooner than later.
Leo: Time is running out to get in those last of the summer trips. The season is soon changing and if you didn’t make plans to travel, consider making them now. This full Moon awakens you to getting away and being introduced to a new life style and be surrounded by different people. Schedule your arrangements before the 27th to be sure there are no hidden issues. But, if you’re in the frame of mind to be adventurous, the chances still await you!
Virgo: Your nerves might not be on their best behavior this month, and you can be sensitive to stuff you would normally ignore. The full Moon caution you from being too touchy and allowing someone to steal your composure. Be mindful of your temper. Just in case no one has ever seen it in action…it can be nasty and very critical. What you say and do during a heated moment will follow you for a long time and affect your reputation as well. Stay away from annoying situations that will test you this full Moon.
Libra: What price are you paying to maintain a current love situation? Are you getting what you really need in a present partnership? This full Moon places alerts on your heart to decide if you’re in a ‘good space’ with the right person, and if not, you’ll see and understand the reasons why. If you’re not in a relationship and can’t figure out why love is not going the way you’ve wanted, a sense of realism about your wants and needs will be revealed and you’ll see why situations are the way they are. Great focus is on love this month.
Scorpio: Face it, there are some people who are determined to make your life miserable regardless of the circumstance. Someone on the job proves to be more spiteful than normal and causes you great amounts of tension. Jealousy is a major factor driving their actions to create an unhappy work environment between you and other coworkers. Of course, you’ll find ways of revenge…but not at this time. In a few months your world will open to abundant opportunities. Remember, success is the best revenge.
Sagittarius: Don’t take no for an answer. Your need for freedom inspires trying something new or doing projects in a different manner. The full Moon empowers your imagination with great insight and you’re able to use more of your creativity. Stay clear of those who have no dreams or goals for the future. They’ll be the very ones who will kill your desire to expand your horizons and goals. They have no clue of the influence they hold over your future. Be the driver of your destiny alone if need be.
Capricorn: Watch for health messages around the full Moon. Your body can be giving you clues that something might need to be investigated to be sure you’re in good health. Aches, pains or irritations of any kind should be taken serious and observed. If you’ve run yourself down over the summer, avoid going into the fall with the same behavior. Make an appointment with health care provider just as a precaution. It is better to be safe than sorry.
Aquarius: Avoid having aggressive conversations. You can face challenges around the full Moon which makes you irritable and nasty. Stay away from those who annoy you on a daily bases and keep your feelings hidden from those at work. Someone might accuse you of starting an argument and as a result you’ll be labeled as non-friendly. If necessary embrace a mental health day and take a day off from the job. You actually might need extra rest to get things in mental order.
Pisces: Don’t let your money burn a hole in your pockets. You might find yourself caught up in a spending spree that can cost you more than it’s worth. Enjoy your finances wisely and spend with mindfulness. The full Moon points you in a direction to create a different avenue of revenue for increasing your cash flow. The power of attraction is active in your money sector, what you put out in spirit will return in spirit. Respect your finances and allow them to prosper and grow.
Actions To Take:
In the 3rd position of which 'Actions To Take,' is the card of ’Surrender ’ for the month of September. This card reveals a white flag being raised in the air against a blue sky. This card suggests when you can’t win a battle that you should surrender. The word ’surrender’ is defined as ‘ceasing resistance to an enemy or opponent and submitting to their authority or to abandon oneself entirely to (a powerful emotion or influence.) The spiritual meaning is when confronted with problems where you cannot find the answer that surrendering to the voice within is the best way to find the answer. This card implies that “stubbornest can cause you to invest in situations that will never come
to fruition,” and it can get in the way of your discernment. When face a seemingly impossible problem and the answer is nowhere to be find, calm your mind and turn within to hear the answer is your ‘action to take’ this month. On the 27th, the planet Mercury goes retrograde in the sign of Libra. Mercury rules thought, communication, short distance travel and technology. When this planet takes a ‘hiatus’ your thoughts can change as you’re able to reconsider why you chose to take a certain direction and you’ll be able to review past decisions made in a different light. During this time conversations can often be misunderstood and you’ll be able to rely more on your intuitive, introspective side. The sign of Libra represents balance, justice, fairness, partnerships. It is an air sign which assists your mental capabilities. Your ‘action to take’ this month is to know when to give up and reconsider taking another option, and intuitively acknowledging when the time has come to shift your course of action. Look below to see how the Mercury retrograde in Libra might influence you this month:
Aries: The uncertainty you’ve had in love can be addressed this Mercury RX. Conversations with people you’re involved with will prove to be extremely informative as a few doubts are answered. The key to uncovering matters occur with your ability to listen carefully to everything said over the next 3 weeks. That certain person will reveal something you’ve been wanting to know, and with this information you can make a stronger decision regarding love.
Taurus: Health maintenance is important. An issue can reveal itself during the Mercury RX that requires attention. Past health matters can resurface, or a brand new concern shows up that requires a closer look. If you haven’t been feel the best and not sure what is happening move fast to get an idea of what is going on. For some reason if you’ve tried to find out what was occurring with your health in the past and nothing was answered, the Mercury RX is excellent at ‘digging’ up hidden issues.
Gemini: Your energy is ‘sweeter than sugar’ this Mercury RX. Old friends and past loves are very much attracted to you and surface without warning. They have the intentions of trying to reconnect and check up on your relationship status. You might enjoy hearing from a few old loves and reminisce about your shared love history. Even conversations from long gone friends can put a smile on your face. This RX, this might be an ideal time to reestablish a few treasured relationships.
Cancer: Establishing stronger relationships with distant family members are very possible this Mercury RX. Having in depth conversations with loved ones that you’re not too close with or those you shared a connection while you were younger, but communications dropped off can now be reestablished. This RX is in the ‘relationship’ sign of Libra and Libra loves to interact with others and bridge ties. Speaking with older aunts, uncles and cousins provide a wealth of family information. Don’t hesitate to call and say hello!
Leo: The Mercury RX opens the way to make amends for hurtful words spoken. If you’ve had difficult conversations, felt badly about them, but didn’t take the time to apologize or give clarity, the planet Mercury provides the inspiration to make those situations better. Revising your comments or making a phone call that you’ve been longing to make has a stronger chance of happening over the next 3 weeks. Old wounds can now be healed. People are receptive to your intentions.
Virgo: Put all spending on pause. You might be totally off track with your financial growth and the Mercury RX comes to assist your direction. Managing bills and trying to keep an eye on finding something solid that you can afford to invest in can be creating internal financial insecurity. With the planet Mercury putting its foot on the ‘monetary brake’ you’ll have a chance to do research, ask questions from those who are already making good financial moves and start a realistic budget for your future.
Libra: You’ve been able to make some pretty substantial moves this year and the Universe wants you to continue progressing forward as the end of 2021 is coming near. The Mercury RX in your sign provides the upper hand in evaluating recent decisions to determine if you’re maintaining a strong and abundant path or if you’re beginning to take things for granted and steer off course. The people you have in your life are also under the scrutiny of the planet Mercury. Believe your eyes and ears. secrets will be uncovered.
Scorpio: Problems in your relationship can be worked out if you take a different approach in communicating your thoughts. Your conversations might be considered harsh or critical by the other person and as a result a turn off in expressing their feelings. Listen before you speak and think before you make comments that can do more damage. The Mercury RX wants to bring peace and harmony in your partnership through your words as well as your actions.
Sagittarius: There are some people you shouldn’t be too friendly with. You might be comfortable in their presence, but they might be around you for the wrong reason. You might tend to be too giving and overly generous because you have a giant heart. Your ability to share is what keeps people attracted to your personality, but too many takers are also in your mist. The Mercury RX wants you to be more discerning when it comes to friendships and associates. Get rid of the parasites.
Capricorn: The Mercury RX encourages reevaluating your career direction. Because of disruptions with the economy you may have discovered that you no longer find your present job as desirable as before and have been experiencing internal dissatisfaction. If this is true, search your heart, check your intuition and do your research on finding a job you feel is better suited for you. There are only a few more month left in this year, so work hard to create a new cycle. The end of October is an ideal time to change jobs.
Aquarius: Your plans for expansion can be put on the back burner for a moment. Whatever dream or goal you’ve been busy trying to reach, the Mercury RX puts it on hold temporarily until you’ve worked the ‘bugs’ out of them. Short cuts on how to reach success are planted in your mind and rethinking a few decisions make sense to your progress. You gain more self confidence on the major decisions you’ve hesitated on pushing forward. Your mind is alive with innovate ideas this Mercury RX.
Pisces: Don’t be fooled into taking on someone else’s debt. A partner or family member might run into a little financial trouble and ask for a helping hand. Choose your actions carefully, the debt you help someone with might be the debt you get stuck with. Be conservative with your generosity and don’t allow it to pull you down. A little monetary assistance is fine, but more than that is out of the question. You will block your own resources if you do!
