Astrology for Healers and Therapists – September 2018

Before I look at this month’s charts I must point out that the interpretation is mainly for therapists dealing with problematic situations.  That is why I seem to emphasise the problem or negative side of life rather than the positive.  Of course the charts indicate a general situation but the leaning must be for those clients or patients who are struggling in some way. 

First do please note that the following is using the WESTERN FOUR ELEMENT system based in western magical and astrological understanding.  The individual therapist must make the translation to the Eastern Five Element system that is usual in Shiatsu and Acupuncture theory.  If you have forgotten the explanation about Elemental and Modal make up then do refresh your memory by looking back at the ‘Introduction to Astrology for Healers and Therapists’.

I look at the charts for the Sundays in September when the Sun is nearing the mid heaven for that day.  Obviously this is for Haye Mill, so you will have to accept the approximation for your own geographical position but the interpretation should not vary too much from this one.  It is a way of following the general trends throughout the month.  Notice there are 5 Sundays in this month once again.

Last month showed a moving from reticence to obstinate entrenchment. It looks as if this continues for a while.

The week beginning the 2nd September shows Mars moving forwards once again but there are still 4 retrograde planets. The Grand Trine is still present but Mercury now has a line of ease to Venus but that in turn challenges Mars.  The Sun is also challenged by Neptune.

 

 

The Modal scene is unchanged from last week but Water has lost a sign to Air.

This looks as if there is a growing need to do something, but what? There is also quite a strong element of self deception or denial.

 

Counsellors – It is one thing to feel in the hands of Fate but doesn’t that also lead to a denial of responsibility? Challenge might be a most necessary card to play.

 

Healers – the imbalance is going to be a growing feature all this month. Earth is going to dominate.  A strong Earth is a good healing environment but too much leads to intolerance and digestive problems.  Watch out for the Stomach and Spleen meridians.

The week of the 9th September sees Mercury moved into Virgo and Venus into Scorpio.  Saturn is now no longer retrograde.  With the Moon conjunct with the Sun the challenge by Neptune is emphasised, but note also a T-Square challenge formed by Uranus and Venus upon Mars.  The line of ease from  the Sun to Saturn has moved over to Pluto and Saturn now has such an aspect line of ease with Mercury.  Venus supports Saturn, Jupiter now does to the Sun and note the Grand Trine’s apex has moved over to Mercury.

 

Cardinal has lost a sign to Mutable but Fire and Air have lost their signs to Water, that has gained one, and Earth, that has gained two more.

It looks as if the righteousness of Virgo has morphed into intransigence. There is little rationality here and individuals could well argue themselves into being between a rock and a hard place.

 

Counsellors – keep calm and clear at all times. Clients will not respond but that is no reason to collude with them.  Be careful though, for too much challenge will only lead to deeper intransigence.

 

Healers – If you thought last week was wading through mud, this week will seem ten times worse.

The week beginning the 16th September reveals Mars having moved into Aquarius. The Moon has formed a temporary but strong T-Square with the opposition between Mercury and Neptune whilst the Grand Trine has disappeared.

 

 

Cardinal has lost a sign to Fixed whilst Earth has lost two signs, one to Fire and the other to Air.

There is a shift away from the self deceiving intransigence but I doubt if individuals are quite ready to concede the issues at hand. It is a reactive move more due to the self inflicted pain rather than any thought through approach.

 

Counsellors – You should be able to challenge effectively once again but do not expect too much too soon. Your Clients pride will not be moved quite yet.

 

Healers – I wonder how much damage has been done. The imbalance is going to take a time to redress.

 

The week beginning 23rd September shows the Sun and Mercury having moved into Libra and forming a strong challenge to Saturn and an equally strong line of ease with Mars. Venus and Uranus are no longer at odds and although the line of ease between Venus and Saturn has gone it has been replaced by a line of ease with Neptune.

 

Mutable has lost two signs to Cardinal whilst Fire has lost one sign, Earth has lost two as Air has gained two and water gained one.

It seems that people will be doing their best to hold back the tears of self pity. At least the aggression has been tempered as people begin to think once again.

 

Counsellors – You can breathe a sigh of relief. Brains have been turned on again so you should be able to have a more normal interaction with your Clients this week.

 

Healers – emotional reaction is going to rule the day especially as there is so little Fire. Heart and Small Intestine may need looking at.

 

 The week beginning 30th September shows the Sun and Mercury moving slightly apart and forming their respective aspects.  Pluto challenges Mercury and Jupiter appears to be unaspected.  A Grand Trine forms temporarily at the weekend as the Moon races across the heavens.

 

 

The Modal scene is unchanged although Air has gained another sign from Water.

The self examination continues this week with a bit more rational though growing. Even so I guess that the recent habit of self pity and self flagellation will continue for a while.

 

Counsellors – Your job should be easier this week as the pattern takes shape. Don’t forget that a positive reflection is just as valid as a challenging one.

 

Healers – the emotional reaction should be less evident this week and although there is still that dearth of Fire things appear to be more malleable as far as energies are concerned.

 

Here lies the ups and downs of Life.
