September: Planets


September 3, 2004


Dear Readers:

I'm going to give the discussion of Saturn a rest this week. I think I've covered the basics of Saturn and the Saturn return in the past couple of editions and there is now a Saturn resource for readers of this site on Planet Waves at this link. It's time to move onto other worlds. This week we have some excellent questions, one of which involves Pluto retrograde, another involving a 'first meeting' chart at the beginning of a relationship, and a couple of which involve Chiron.


However, the star of the show in September and beyond is Jupiter, which is making its way from Virgo to Libra on the 25th. September also brings the Libra Equinox, which is followed by one planet after the next transiting in to Libra - big changes, and exciting ones, which hopefully I will have an opportunity or two to address. But more immediately, Mercury stations to direct motion in Leo Thursday, Sept. 2, ending its three-week retrograde. Pluto has stationed direct. And we have experienced the Venus-Saturn conjunction in Cancer, which along with Mercury coming back online should do a lot to free up some stuck energy.


When you're submitting your questions, please remember to write out your birth data longhand, as US and UK formats differ. Also, it's very difficult to use long questions without extracting the parts that can be addressed in a column. So think about what you really need to find out and try to focus your question on that. The most effective inquiries, I think, are the ones that are both personal and address a specific astrological issue. Thank you for taking the time to write and for all your positive feedback, and thanks dearly to Vanessa and Deirdre at for all the work they do on this page, as well as to Chelsea at PlanetWaves, who compiles your inquiries. And thank you for checking in each week. It's great to be able to write about the nuts and bolts of astrology for an audience that's really interested.
