With Discipline Comes Freedom

Create Rituals for Success and Longevity

Thanks, August! You’ve been great. With some of the most auspicious cosmic energies of the year, many of us felt the winds of change blow us in new, positive directions. We started businesses, relationships, families. We saw clearly the places we were holding ourselves back, and we had the courage to set boundaries and sever ties so that we could move forward with passion and purpose.

After all that fire, it’s time to deepen our roots in the earth. It’s Virgo season, and that means stability, order, a slower pace, and a healthy dose of discipline to direct our patterns and habits. We need a way to integrate all the massive downloads, expansions, and insights that have come to us this year.

Real discipline requires real wisdom. Luckily, beautiful, regal, magnificent Turquoise is well-versed in the ways of revealing right action. This balanced stone promotes harmony and has been used for thousands of years in many cultures across the world to honor and respect the power of the earth – and the power of humankind.
Turquoise is not in the business of false power, that is, power that has been taken at the expense of another. In its great wisdom, fortitude, and evenness, Turquoise sees that real power already exists within each being. The trick is to find ways and means to draw it to the surface so that it can be used to better the individual and the greater whole.

Create a connection with heaven and earth this month by wearing a Turquoise amulet around your neck. Allow the divine energies of the soil and the sky to commune within you and bring you into balance. The masculine air energies and the feminine earth energies will unite within you and will lead you down a path of greater strength through rituals of discipline and compassion.

Another brilliant aspect of Turquoise is its energy of healthy relationships. We have a strong focus on relationships this month, as your allies and closest friends deserve your outward love and respect in addition to your inner caring. Give a piece of turquoise to a dear friend who is, like you, looking to instill positive patterns and integrate large lessons. Giving the gift of turquoise is an ancient practice. The energy generated by such an action will reverberate throughout the collective.

Lastly, Turquoise is a major stone of protection. Worn on the armor and ceremonial battle gear of the Aztecs, it has long been perceived as a stone of defense against negative forces. Integration is a tender process, and often comes with confusion as your current system is asked to assimilate new information. It is therefore imperative that you walk through your days feeling protected against those people, places, and things that could adversely disrupt your system upgrade. 

Carry a piece of Turquoise in your pocket as a touchstone to guide you back home to yourself when you feel that surrounding energies threaten to carry you away. There is no need to stand in fear, just caution. There is wisdom in knowing the difference. Turquoise will remind you when caution is needed and will navigate you through this month with joyful ease and grace.
AFFIRMATION OF THE MONTH
I am protected from the influence of negativity at all times.
I am grateful for the love and appreciation of my allies and friends.
I create powerful and positive rituals and habits to support my new level of life.

Planetary Overview for the month of
September 2019

We welcome Virgo, Libra, and the energies of grounding, stability, and steadfastness this month. August gave us the chance to roar, now September asks us to slow down, take stock, and practice discipline. Without discipline, the upgrades cannot take full root in our system. What could have been divine order devolves into chaos without a solid foundation. 

Discipline is never the most fun or popular topic – not with so much light, love, and expansion of consciousness to be had! Yet, without times of grounding, of being deeply in our bodies, of connecting to the physical, all of the glittering gifts of consciousness, Spirit, and the supernatural cannot be fully expressed in your life. They will ultimately bind you rather than liberate you unless a practice of discipline is instilled in your life. Rejoice and give thanks for this time of stability – it will serve you in the months ahead.

We start on the second of the month with a boost from a Sun conjunct Mars aspect. This is USA’s Labor Day – a perfect time to set intentions about the work that needs to be done this month. Keep the focus on current projects rather than bringing in new ones. Where are you at with what you’ve already started? What tasks need to get done this month to supercharge your business, home, family, health, finances, or relationships moving forward? Take care of what’s here and more will follow.

🌕♑The middle of the month holds the majority of our major shifts and changes. On the 13th we have a Pisces Full Moon. The dance of Virgo and Pisces is an interesting one, to be sure. Expect emotional breakthroughs to come in earth-bound ways.

Think shedding grief during an intense workout or experiencing massive heart-opening while cooking dinner. Your way through big emotions or blocks will come through grounded, habitual action. Practice meditation and mindfulness in all you do this month and emotions that need to release from your system will find their way out.

On the 18th, Saturn turns direct and heads toward Pluto. This masculine planet has been in retrograde since April, but now there’s no stopping it from its steady progress into alignment with Pluto. This alignment will come in January 2020 – a month which promises major change. The focus between now and then is preparation. Where do you know you need to become more disciplined? Where are you looking to make the most major shifts in your life, and what seeds are you planting to be able to get there?

This is also a time to shed what remains of past ties to relationships and situations that were not good for you. Where are you shaming yourself for moving away from a relationship that felt toxic? Where are you still clinging to anger over a circumstance you believe to be unjust? 

In our lives, we are faced with unfairness, much of which can be debilitating in its tragedy for a time. It is important to respect, accept, and honor the emotions that are stirred up during trying times. It is also wise to realize that what happened in the past will continue to happen in your present until you let it go. Even if the external circumstance has changed, if you continue to allow the playing and replaying of painful memories, your body, mind, emotional life, and spirit will all be taxed by it. 

Connect with wise, compassionate Turquoise during this time for assistance in shedding the old in order to fully integrate the new. Allow for remaining shreds of attachment to old situations to flow through – and out – of you. You’re going places and you’re going there fast. Travel light and leave the old baggage behind you.

We welcome the Equinox on the 23rd. This is also when we make the move out of Virgo and into balanced, relationship-driven Libra. The spotlight on relationships continues during this time, but the emphasis is on celebration. With all the work you’ve been doing, how much time have you given yourself to play? 

The beauty of discipline is that when it’s time to let loose and be frivolous, you can really give yourself over to it. You know you have created order – now it’s time for a little lighthearted chaos. Throw a party with your nearest and dearest. Go see a double feature with your partner or have a spa day with your best friend. Head to the beach with your partner and children or take a day trip into nature with your siblings.

There are infinite ways to play and deepen the connection with those who have been with you through thick and thin. Enjoy this time – we have all earned it.

September 28th is our New Moon in Libra – it is a time for integration, a time for reflection, and a time to honor the work of the previous season. 2019 asked much of our hearts, minds, and bodies. This new moon triggers a time of completion – less about drawing in the new, and more about allowing what has already been drawn in to settle, and become a natural, intrinsic part of our lives.

It is also a time to look around you – where have you neglected the small in favor of the big? The world today has many issues we are working together to heal and transform. For some of us, this pursuit consumes the majority of our lives. A consistent focus on the macro helps us take action in service of the whole, but what about the micro? 

Sometimes a helping hand for a friend, a neighbor, a stranger in need has a bigger overall impact than massive global action. As we move through Libra, our sign of balance, remember to hold the macro and the micro, the small and the large, the global and the local evenly

September asks you to nail down more solid rituals, to practice ease and grace, and to remember the important people in your life that have helped you, loved you, and appreciated you for exactly who you are in every phase of your journey. 

The coming months and certainly the next year are certain to bring radical shifts in all our lives. This time next year you will be in a much different place. Recognizing the transience of life is the key to truly enjoying it. Love what’s here, right now, for exactly what it is. Love who you are right now for exactly who you are. None of it stays. It all transforms. But it’s all beautiful right now. Create in your life a ritual of appreciation and no matter what goes and what stays you will be in a position to love and appreciate it all.

Enjoy your September!
