Let us welcome September, with the Sun filtering its light through Virgo’s down-to-earth, productive rays. “Let’s make something happen, let’s see what can be accomplished,” the skies seem to whisper this week.
This first week of September is a busy one for many, as summer break is coming to an end and school is back in session. Even though I haven’t been a student in a long time, I always feel a bit nostalgic for this time of year.
I used to begin each September wondering what the school year might hold. I always hoped for new friends and new experiences, often more interested in what I might learn through the people I met rather than what was happening in class.
September can still feel that way for many of us, like another New Year’s Day in that we get ambitious in setting off to learn or do or see something new.
Whatever you are feeling this September, remember that we are in Virgo territory right now, a mutable sign that primes us for the changing seasons.
This a time to let yourself walk between worlds as we transition out of summer and into fall, which is just a few weeks away.
What are you still lingering over from the summer season that you’re not quite ready to let go of yet? Maybe it’s watching a few more sunsets, or getting out to the beach one last time.
And where are you setting your sights once the Fall Equinox arrives on September 23, when we shift into Libra season and begin to take stock of what we’ve sown and reaped so far in 2019?
The card I pulled for this week is the Eight of Wands, one that keeps many irons in the fire, one that is relentless in its pursuit of experience.
The Eight of Wands is an interesting energy to flirt with because it almost dares you to spread yourself a little thinner than you probably should. But at this time of year, it also says,
“To hell with the consequences. Summer’s down to its final threads and fall’s around the corner. Make the most of your days, love. Stretch them out. Stretch your hours. Stretch into the last dregs summer sunlight. Reach for it, grab hold of as much as you can even though you know you can’t keep it forever. But try, try.”
What will you make the effort to reach for?
Until next time,
