Note to Readers — good evening. Please read if you are experiencing any confusion.
The September horoscope and article have just been sent separately to the Planet Waves in-house lists. If you are an in-house paying subscriber, please log in and go to your My Account area and you will find the September horoscope there — and any other recent materials, plus archives. It’s all right there, in one place.
This Substack (where you’re reading this email — a new, excellent content platform I’m experimenting with) is a parallel sales and delivery system for my astrology writing (offering other services at no cost, such as A Course in Miracles).
If you are a paying in-house subscriber to Planet Waves, thank you. Please ignore the messages in this email that say “free subscriber.” There is nothing I can do about them, and anyway, there is no such thing.
Thank you for understanding, and thank you for your business and your trust. — efc
This mailing includes the Virgo Studio reading (not just the sample), published last night. As a special one-time opportunity, I am offering access to Virgo Studio to new Substack subscribers. You may also purchase it separately for $33. If you listen here, it’s the current reading only, without the additional materials that come with it as a separate purchase (prior readings, written materials, and the tarot reading coming next week). This is an experiment. — efc
The Pisces energy is still coming through strongly — that amounts to peace, love and confusion.
Dear Friend and Reader:
Today I have the monthly horoscope for you.
The Full Moon door opened last night, and is still providing insight and understanding, if subtle and intuitive. The Moon will be in Pisces through Friday morning in most time zones, and the Pisces energy will be strong: the Moon makes a conjunction to Neptune at 4:13 am EDT Friday.
This can be confusing, and may feel like sand slipping through your hands. So take it as easy as you can; there are some things that will just have to wait.
Mercury retrograde has been making itself known, turning simple matters into complex ones and potentially stirring up deeper problems. All of these are prompts for what I call system checks: are steps solve the whole problem now, don’t just patch it over. Some of those will have to wait until the station-direct on Tuesday, Sept. 15.
Mercury in Contact with Nessus
Today and tomorrow, Mercury will be in direct contact with centaur Nessus. This may bring up old traumas, though the involvement of Mercury is saying that a sincere conversation must be initiated if you want to make any progress toward healing.
Anything lingering up until this point is likely to be the result of past discussions not had, and withholding information and feelings from intimate partners. This article from 2014 describes another Mercury retrograde where Nessus was involved.
Venus stations direct Sept. 3 after a six-week retrograde in Leo. That development is covered in many of the signs below. As it stations, Venus is in a log square (90-degree aspect) to Jupiter — that’s about exaggeration of emotional issues. Such will inevitably stand in the way of addressing the deeper material described by the aspect.
I would describe that as the unwillingness to receive love, affection and support. Many people seem inconsolable these days, and you can smell the bitterness and irritation in the air. If we want to build trust and community, we will need a better way.
I’ll have more to say on Friday night’s Planet Waves FM where I will be describing the spiritual implications of overexposure to digital conditions.
Thank you for your business and your trust.
