NEWSLETTER SEPTEMBER 2017
LIFE AS WE KNOW IT IS CHANGING
By Laurie www.sublunar.co.za
Wow this retrograde Mercury is acting like Mercury is on steroids, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. If we stick to what we want to achieve no matter the obstacles, we will succeed.
Add to this is the eclipse that has brought about shifts and changes in a big way, the effects of the eclipse can last up to 6 weeks after the event, this has affected many in a big way.
The past month has acted like a cleanser; people have faced their worst scenarios and in some cases are now looking at a completely new picture this month. Many of the very ill and frail have finished their lives on this planet and moved on to a happier place.
This cleansing energy will continue into September. Health issues need to be addressed; this is a good time to do that medical exam after all prevention is better than cure. Those, and there are many, with flu may be experiencing one rebound after another, take it easy and try to boost yourself with tonics and rest.
The cleansing can take place on the foundation of work or in your relationship, change and a feeling of frustration will continue.
The great thing we will see this month, should we change the way we look at life, are opportunities. Though more effort is required due to unforeseen circumstances, with correct attitude and a lot of hard word can bring you rewards from the most unlikely situations.
Some may decide the pressure is too great and want to let go of extra baggage, some duties. If this is the case and exhaustion is creeping in, it is the perfect time to shed some of the load that is bogging you down.
If a project has failed or you have been let down by broken promises don’t fret about these circumstances. Focus on fixing faults that have cropped up, don’t give up keep working hard to achieve the correct results. Mercury retrograde will certainly expose that which is broken or flawed. Fix your life and ‘all will be well’ as a dear friend mentioned to me recently.
This energy will only ease up from the 11th of September; the exposure of flaws and the shifts due to the eclipse will be adding extra pressure and more work. Many of us may feel like packing it all in. That is fine for some of us to let go, this decision will become easier as Mercury moves direct into Virgo where he works at his best.
Virgo energy likes to be of service in an analytical systematic manner, reliability is the key for success as too is hard and honest work. Mercury is the communicator and mover can be considerate of others whilst in Virgo, but when retrograde we do need to watch out for finicky, self centred and sarcastic behaviour.
When direct we will be able to think in a logical and practical manner as well as the ability to cope with vast amounts of work and details.
The other shift we are experiencing in September is Saturn as he begins to move forward at his normal speed. Saturn is the teacher, the teacher of big life lessons. Some of us are doing the teaching and some are learning the lessons of life.
Saturn is still transiting through Sagittarius; this is structure in an expansive way. Saturn is the ruler of those with authority; they really need to be very careful as this energy allows for freedom of power. Whilst retrograde this freedom of power has been abused by those in charge.
All we need to do is listen to the news to understand just how damaging abuse of power can be. If you are in a position of authority and have been abusing your power to expand in the way you see fit, you will fall from grace. In fact many a person in a place of power has been busted and exposed during the retrograde period of Saturn.
Saturn in Sagittarius allows for inward expansion, yes, but not at the expense and downfall of others. When Saturn energy is abused it will come back and bite you. When used responsibly and correctly this will bring about maturity and promised success.
The freedom theme continues as we continue to release ourselves from a restricted, limited, and obligated life. If you have been dealing with an ongoing issue it is time to make a decision and choose a direction. This is the month to break away and lessen your tension.
The powerful force of an opposition between Jupiter the expansive planet and Uranus the shock master can be very valuable though disruptive. Relationships will be affected by this energy and it is wise to be careful when deciding what needs to be eliminated and what does not!
Make sure that what you want to overthrow is worthwhile and useless, this could also be past resentments. In some instances a partnership or marriage that has been experiencing difficulties could either end or taken on a new and beneficial direction.
This is a disruptive yet valuable transit. Goodness this month of September is shift shaker of note. Holding onto deadwood and ideals is not advised. Letting go of unnecessary baggage is liberating though challenging. Don’t let ego rule your life, especially now, rather liberate yourself from your ego and let go of any past resentment.
Do not be surprised if you are faced with other people or circumstances that can liberate you from a task or duty, accept this with open arms. It is time to set out and change circumstances in your life and by doing so you may be the springboard for others to bring value into your and their lives.
Give your partners and people in general the freedom of choice, the permission to make their own choice. Some of us may even experience the pain of loss of partners and friends, this loss in a bazaar way can bring freedom for all parties concerned. Loss, resignation, divorce and break ups are extremely painful but in the long run can be liberating.
This energy can be felt all month but will reach its zenith around the 28th of September. Spring cleaning of note is clearly on the cards, and in many more ways than one.

The shifting energy may show up health issues that you have suspected but ignored. This is the time to really look at your health and start leading a better healthier life.
Heart and high cholesterol problems have been exposed; this can be expected with an eclipse in Leo the sign that rules heart. Get your blood pressure and cholesterol checked, if the results are alarming or not a great as you believed, don’t stress you have already begun the healing process by uncovering symptoms before they become problems.
Exercise can improve cholesterol. Moderate physical activity can help raise high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol. With your doctor’s OK, work up to at least 30 minutes of exercise a day.
Oats, bran and high-fibre foods that contain soluble fibre reduce your low-density lipoprotein (LDL), the “bad” cholesterol. Soluble fibre is also found in such foods as kidney beans, apples, pears, barley, cucumber, and prunes. Soluble fibre can reduce the absorption of cholesterol into your bloodstream. www.mayoclinic.org
So once again the subject of exercise and diet crops up, the two natural activities we can do to stay fit and healthy. Well it’s off to the gym I go, followed by a cucumber and apple smoothie…yum!
