At last, the Sun and the inner planets have completed their harsh oppositions to Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter and squares to Uranus. That means the trines to Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter over the next few weeks should be good for understanding, stability and balanced practicality.
Keep in mind that all the change agent outer planets – Jupiter, Chiron, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Eris, Quaoar and Ixion – are retrograde and Mercury enters his shadow retrograde zone on September 5/6th.
This is a time to become an Intronaut- reviewing, re-framing, reflecting and going deeper. Streamline and simplify as much as possible, to stay on track and to give yourself space to explore new possibilities to be lived in the future. Despite the general craziness, it’s a great time to get clear about many things, to integrate elements of your life, ready to explore new approaches to your craft/service which will evolve into new tools and strategies in 2022.
As Venus clashes with Pluto and Disruptor Eris, the Sun trines unpredictable Uranus and Mars opposes Neptune, be ready to discover that your cherished map of the world is not congruent with current reality. As the NLP Pre-supposition says:” The map is not the territory”. How liberating….just allow the inner update to reorient you.
As well as the big picture 5D astrology, September’s Report delivers usable strategies for living with complexity, uncertainty and entanglement, for resourcing and befriending yourself whilst unhooking your star from the Over-Culture.

“In Celtic lands, steeped in a power beyond the world, there were openings always into other times and places, from within this time and place. Discovering once again these passages and sending an expanded part of yourself to explore and inhabit all of the times and places officially denied. And being therefore given to a harkening to the unknown and to simultaneously feeling linked up with just about everybody everywhere in a mystical, magical realisation that pulls you along and calls one to become free and true, you walk onward into the limitless ways as though you had never lost them and no time had elapsed between great inward breaths.”- Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale
Aries Weekly Forecast: August 29-Sept 5, 2021
You’ll notice the shift in energy as the Sun joins your personal planet Mars in Virgo, bringing a degree of calm after the blazing planetary fires of the first 3 weeks of August. In your solar chart this means your attention is on your routines, your job, your health and your responsibilities. Start by de-cluttering your workplace, your agenda and your priorities. No cutting corners – due diligence is needed. With Venus in your relationship zone, make sure you ask for support-not everything has to be done on your own.
Getting up to date with yourself.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: August 29-Sept 5, 2021
As the Sun joins Mars in fellow Earth sign Virgo, you start to feel calmer and far less frazzled than in the previous 3 weeks of planetary wildfires. Even better, your own planet Venus in Libra is acting as a personal coach, nudging you to make beneficial tweaks to your health, wellbeing, physicality and energy levels. This acts as a stimulus to get your act together at work, updating your routines and your priorities to make the very most of hosting both Saturn and Jupiter in your career zone. The whole of September has Mercury the planet of business in this same angle of your chart-it looks as if you’ll be extra busy.
In your element.
Gemini Weekly Forecast: August 29-Sept 5, 2021
With both the Sun and Mars crossing the lowest point of your solar chart, your home and tribe are going to figure strongly in the next 3 weeks. You might feel the urge to put a family member straight or to do a radical de-clutter, throwing out things you’ve owned for many years, but tread carefully-better to do it incrementally than in one go and better to build bridges, not destroy them. Happily, Venus is lighting up your 5th House of creativity, fun and romance, so if these have been in short supply this year, now’s the time to stop and smell the roses.
Allow yourself to do more of what brings you alive.
Cancer Weekly Forecast: August 29-Sept 5, 2021
Take heart – with the Sun now in Virgo, the stress of the last few weeks of extreme fiery Yang energy is fading away. However, it has left its mark on your emotions and your physicality, so don’t just move straight on into the next thing, but explore bodywork, therapy or mindfulness techniques. It’s been a particularly hard 18 months for you as a Cancerian. The approaching Virgo New Moon in a little over a week on September 6th will support you in putting self-care at the top of your priorities, instead of it being an afterthought.
Listening to your body’s many cries for help.
Leo Weekly Forecast: August 29-Sept 5, 2021
Can you feel the shift from the fiery Leo energy of the first 3 weeks of August into the calmer territory of Virgo? It’s time to switch your attention to practicalities, especially money and resources. Take a close look at the bottom line, create a debt repayment schedule or call in money owed then come up with some new ways of diversifying your income stream. With Venus in your communication zone, talk everything over with partners – personal and professional – ask for advice and listen more than you speak.
Frame it as laying the groundwork for a busy September courtesy of Mercury in your 3rd House.
Virgo Weekly Forecast: August 29-Sept 5, 2021
A deep breath and welcome back to being in your element again after 3 weeks of out-of-control Yang fire energy. With both the Sun and Mars in Virgo, you are now in the driving seat and the first thing to manage – apart from your stress levels – is your workload, your day-to-day schedule and your responsibilities. Make staying calm, centred and focused your priorities and everything else will fall into place. That means having a strategy and a time-line to keep yourself on track. In just over a week on September 6th, the Virgo New Moon will nudge you to become much more innovative in your work, your craft, your service and your routines, experimenting with new methods and modalities that take you out of your comfort zone.
Being at cause, not at effect.
Libra Weekly Forecast: August 29-Sept 5, 2021
The first 3 weeks of September with the Sun crossing your deep, hidden 12th House are always the time of year when your solar batteries need re-charging. Make sure you give yourself time and space to prepare for your birthday and your personal New Year. Luckily, the beautiful Venus and communicator Mercury are in Libra ahead of the Sun, nudging you to update your appearance, your networks and your priorities. Make a note of Sunday August 29th when Venus aligns with Pluto and Eris. This is a day to focus like a laser on bringing changes you want to make into reality.
Updating your map of the world.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: August 29-Sept 5, 2021
As a Yin Water sign, the shift from August’s harsh, out of control, fiery Yang energy into low key earthy Virgo is extremely welcome. The stress and strain of recent times is fading, allowing you the space to stabilise and re-balance. With both Venus and Mercury in your 12th House, September is the perfect opportunity to withdraw, retreat and do a reality check. Ask yourself if your old plans, projects and schemes still have juice in them or have they lost their lustre? The coming Virgo New Moon on September 6th will nudge you out of your comfort zone to recognise that many of your old ways of approaching things, which always got results in the past, are no longer working.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: August 29-Sept 5, 2021
As both the Sun and Mars light up the pinnacle of your chart in Virgo, your reputation, public profile and career is right in the spotlight. This can work for you or against you. If you’ve been cutting corners, every mistake will be visible but if you’ve done due diligence, the rewards will follow. This Sun/Mars transit is infrequent, so squeeze every last drop of juice out of opportunities coming your way. Ambition is not a dirty word. But before you fly too near the Sun, remember to stay grounded and rooted in your home, tribe and family.
Rewards or reckonings?
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: August 29-Sept 5, 2021
Just like Taurus, you should be feeling much more at home in your own skin now that the Sun has left over -the- top Yang Leo and entered fellow Earth sign Virgo. Both Mars and the Sun are lighting up your 9th House of widening your horizons, setting you thinking about diving into a new programme of study or planning a trip away. Meanwhile, Venus and Mercury are activating the pinnacle of your chart making you much more visible in your career or public role. Since the Messenger will retrograde back and forth here until early October, expect to change your plans or to have them changed for you.
Life definitely won’t be dull.
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: August 29-Sept 5, 2021
As both Saturn and Jupiter travel backwards through Aquarius, old dreams, passions and pastimes that you left by the wayside are reminding you of their existence. Welcome them home and see where they lead- they have valuable memories and information for you. In September, the intense fiery Leo energy has dissipated, leaving you feeling calmer and much more centred. The Sun and Mars in your 8th House are nudging you to audit your finances by taking a long hard look at what you earn, what you save, what you own and what you owe. If there are self-sabotaging patterns of over spending or of wasting money, draw a permanent line under them.
Building strong support structures.
Pisces Weekly Forecast: August 29-Sept 5, 2021
The welcome news is that the last few days of August are much less stressful than the previous 3 three weeks of out- of- control Yang Fire energy. The Sun and Mars are crossing your opposite sign of Virgo, reviving or rekindling your closest relationships. With Venus and Mercury in your 8th House, it’s the perfect time to have a discussion about money, about long term plans and about a deeper level of commitment. The Virgo New Moon on August 6th is a sign of new beginnings.
Wearing your heart on your sleeve.
