We welcome September under the Witch's New Moon, as the very first crescent reveals itself. With some variations, the Witch's New Moon rises in the daytime before noon and becomes visible in the day sky. It will be most visible at sunset and usually sets well before midnight.
With a busy month ahead, I do have some very good news for you. Feelings of absolute exhaustion will soon come to an end, as extended Virgo energies of Venus and the Sun give us the drive and optimism to (finally!) tackle our to-do list.
Additionally, with Mars in Virgo until October 2nd, September is the perfect time to 'get things right the first time' and smoothly move forth with personal goals. A good omen for students and those entering a new profession! An ideal ritual to harness this powerful energy is the Mars Energy Ritual. For best results, I would recommend the Mars Energy Ritual be performed at any point between the first quarter moon of September 6th and September 12th.
September 8th- 9th the growing moon (at over 70% illumination) will be in the industrious, hardworking sign of Capricorn. This night would be ideal for manifesting specific tasks. If you are needing to manifest a specific job, if your dishwasher just went haywire or if you're simply wanting something nice for yourself, an Attainment Ritual can lead to rapid manifestations.
If someone else seems to be holding the keys to your personal success (salary, loan approval, job offer, etc.), the Wise Woman Ritual performed on the night of September 8th will quickly give you the upper hand.
If you are in the Americas, you will experience a Full Moon on Friday, September 13th. Although Friday the 13th holds no spiritual significance, it can be a joyful evening for those who are anxiously awaiting Halloween. (Yes, I certainly fall under that category!)
The Harvest Full Moon shines on us on September 13th at 9:32 pm PST / September 14th at 5:32 am UTC. This upcoming Full Moon is considered a Micromoon, as it will be at apogee and furthest from the Earth. This is a contracting energy, with similar influences of a Waning Moon. Anxiety will be quite prevalent -- and not just because the ill-informed will think it's an "unlucky" Friday the 13th! People's patience will be running on fumes. Be gentle with yourself and with others. Additionally, the Piscean influences of this Full Moon will make you absorb energies like a sponge. Psychic senses will be increased, and you will learn personal information you didn't necessarily even want to know...
Due to this energy, I do not advise you to perform prosperity rituals for the September Full Moon. Not because anything "bad" will happen, but simply because the rituals will not be quite as impactful as during a standard Full Moon. If you can, delay (or repeat) your prosperity rituals for the October 13th Full Moon!
September 13th will be a great night to welcome new energies, positive influences, and open pathways with the use of a Juniper smudge bundle. As previously discussed, the Full Moon Piscean influences will open psychic channels and would be a good night for divination rituals.
Has a project stalled or even come to a grinding halt since late-April or May? When Saturn, the plant of achievements, went retrograde back in April 2019, realizations and progress hit the pause button. For many, this resulted in financial loss or an extended streak of bad luck. These unpleasant effects will soon come to a joyous end, as Saturn goes direct on September 18th. Within the next 5 weeks, expect stalled projects to advance rapidly. Health typically improves during this time, as well! Dispel & Conquer Ritual can greatly expedite the removal of the roadblocks.
As summer's blooms turn their fragrant heads towards autumn's call, we welcome the Equinox on September 23rd. On the night of the Spring & Autumnal Equinox, the length of day and night is nearly equal in all parts of the world. While the spring days in the Southern Hemisphere will be growing longer, those of us in the Northern Hemisphere will be entering the autumnal season of darkness.
With the Sun entering Libra, the Equinox and the Last Quarter Moon occurring on September 23rd, this will be an excellent day to cleanse, bless and protect your home energetically. After physically cleansing your space, smudge with the Old World Floral Bundle, as the harmony of herbs will bless, protect, and purify your surroundings. It's an exceptional method of welcoming the new season!
Dark Moon in Libra of September 28th will be a bit of emotional one, as our home life and career will be challenged. Many will feel as if they are not "adulting" well enough; As the things we do not want to do suddenly become something we can no longer ignore. This could be an acknowledgment of a marriage that could now use counseling, knowing you must now reenter the workforce, or finally cutting back on animal products for the sake of your health (and the planet!). This will be a Dark Moon is uncomfortable realizations. Burn some Juniper around your living space to stir up stagnant energies and open pathways to blessings.
If toxic emotions or heartache is present, the Libra Dark Moon will be a potent time for a Black Walnut Bath (or shower rinse). This will assist with washing away ungrounded energies. If you suspect spirit or entity attachments, add Agrimony Powder and salt to your bath (or shower rinse).
If there have been roadblocks to particular goals, the Libra Dark Moon will be an excellent time for the Dispel & Conquer Ritual. This is a two-part ritual. Perform Part I of the ritual on September 28th, and Part II of the ritual on the Witch's New Moon of September 30th.
Those needing to heal their heart charka or wanting to attract a new, true love would greatly benefit from the Witch's New Moon in Libra by starting the Bloom Into Love Ritual the morning of September 30th.
Wishing you a month of healing and the turning of your inner leaves!
