This is the planetary overview for September 2016. In Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia, there are two new moons in this month: New Moon in Libra, on October 1st, and New Moon in Scorpio, on October 30th. The second occurrence of a new moon in a calendar month is called Black Moon and pagans consider that a ritual or a spell performed during the Black Moon is more powerful than ever.
October 1st: New Moon in Libra (Sun conjunct Moon in Libra) – this is a good day for starting a new relationship. Declare your love, propose marriage or at least arrange an appointment with someone you love! In America, the New Moon in Libra took place on September, 30th.
October 7th: Mercury enters Libra – it is the proper time for diplomacy, in all kind of relationships: intimate relationships, business relationships and even in international relations between states or organisations. It is also a good time to discover what kind of artistic skills you have and to develop them.
October 16th: Full Moon in Aries (Sun in Libra opposite Moon in Aries) – today, you stop thinking too much before acting. Spontaneity is good and will help you to achieve your goals, as long as it doesn’t become something else: impulsivity.
October 18th: Venus enters Sagittarius – you have many experiences in love and in relationships, so you collect a serious number of friends and lovers. Adventure is your primary concern, during this transit. It is a good time for women to use their valuable intellectual traits.
October 22nd: Sun enters Scorpio – Sun entering this sign ruled by Pluto announces the best time for self-transformation. The American astrologer Ginger Chalford called Pluto „Planet of Magic and Power“. It is mainly the power to transform yourself, so that you become a person who can achieve his goals.
October 24th: Mercury enters Scorpio – Mercury in Scorpio makes you a great observer, especially when it comes to emotions, desires and interpersonal relationships. Politeness is not among your qualities, but sincerity is – sometimes, too much sincerity.
October 30th: New Moon in Scorpio (Sun conjunct Moon in Scorpio) – this New Moon in Scorpio is like a portal to your inner self, especially in Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia, when this is the second new moon in the same month – the Black Moon, when subconscious mind is very powerful and, if you know how to use it, it will help you to transform your life.
In America, this phenomenon (the Black Moon, two new moons in the same month) occurred in September (New Moon in Virgo, on September 1st, and New Moon in Libra and also Black Moon, on September, 30th).
