September 2010: Planetwatch with Pamela Cucinell

A Planned Party Flows

Mercury is retrograde until September 14, so assume nothing and back up files. Unexpected events on September 1 and 2 derail slipshod work. Enjoy a long contemplation near a body of water on September 3 or 4. Smiles abound on September 5 for creative causes or simple fun. The party continues as you travel home on Labor Day. It pays to prepare on September 7, prioritizing work and health routines.

Another Chance for Perfection

The September 8 New Moon in Virgo urges adjustments to your diet, exercise habits or routine. Choose your goal wisely to support your bigger vision. Legal and partnership discussions are effective on September 9 and 10. On September 11, people meet for transformational reasons, no matter how brief or long. Follow your passion on September 12 when Mercury goes direct.

Weigh Your Options

September 13 offers good results if you are diplomatic. Explore your options on September 14. Prepare to use the “stops and starts” on September 15 to your advantage. Implement ideas and launch new projects on September 16 and 17. On September 18, some people feel bulldozed, while others feel effective.

The Great Wheel Turns into Autumn

Any enterprise begun on September 19 has a strong spiritual component. Map out your plans on September 20 with the ability to bend them. On September 21, talk things out so that you can gain clarity to go forward. September 22 is the Autumnal Equinox, which generates new beginnings through endings. The September 23 Harvest Moon shines on the impetus to create real change. Although there’s an unknown and uncontrollable quality to this energy, remember that attitude is everything. On September 24, the less concerned you are about specifics, the more you can seize opportunities.

Powerful Emotions Create Irrevocable Change

On September 25, know where you’re going (with alternate routes for detours). No one can push you into a fight on September 26 unless you’re willing. Conversations can lead to strong results on September 27. Don’t over-commit on September 28, because of the likelihood of change. On September 29, understand your feelings about a situation completely to increase your effectiveness. September 30 creates an emotional roller coaster, but there is the potential for great understanding and revelation.
