RISE ABOVE DEFEAT
NEWSLETTER SEPTEMBER 2019
By Laurie Naughtin www.sublunar.co.za
September will be an earthy Month as all planets barring Jupiter are either in Virgo or Capricorn. This brings about a Month where we can put a system in place and grow. Virgo’s Mother Earth nature and natural energy creates structure together with the support from Capricorn.
Worry can result in nervousness and lead to an unhealthy attitude toward life. So much has happened this past year it has ground us down and left us with many fears and uncertainty.
September is month where we have a choice to worry about our future and to be critical about every issue we have to face in the past as well as what is making us anxious about the future.
The only positive option is to rise above self limiting nervous energy, seek new ways to analyse situations in a practical manner so we can embrace the opportunities the future could offer.
This month we get a lot of help as four planets are in Virgo a sign that will give us the motivation to organise our lives, put in the hard work needed to make plans and to get things done, this is the way we can rise from defeat.
Take enjoyment in setting up schedules; be practical and realistic in your approach. This Virgo energy can bring about a need for perfection so that you can push yourself to reach your ultimate goal.
We have the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Mars all working hard in Virgo, in simple language we can make the action by being creative, logical and systematically driven to achieve what we set out to do. With Mars in Virgo we will have stamina together with the energy from the Sun so we can focus and do the work we really need to do now, just try to avoid being too fussy or over ambitious, this could lead to burnout.
Venus is the planet of love, desire and relationships, in Virgo Venus adopts a more service orientated way of connecting with others. From the 15th of September Venus moves into Libra where the ability to relate to others becomes, not only necessary but easier.
With Venus in Libra there is a need to be wanted, to be in a relationship, to find that perfect marriage partner or even business connection. This is all good and well but we do need to be aware that when working on a relationship or partnership, both sides can be easily hurt, the lesson here is to learn how to conform not only to your desires but to the needs of others.
Joining Venus on the 15th is Mercury will enter Libra on the same day in the same degree. The desire to connect and relate to others will be activated.
Mercury loves to be social and connect with others on an intellectual level. This is a great time to connect with others, to share ideas or seal the deal when it comes to negotiations. Mercury plays a role in our ability to think and in Libra we enjoy a practical, somewhat persuasive yet well balanced though process.
So far this all looks good; we have another shift coming, Saturn moves into his station and goes direct this month. Saturn is the discipline planet; he likes life to go according to the rules and reacts in a very bad way when the laws of life are ignored. If you skip the steps when building a bridge, it can collapse and this rule is the same in life. If you are going to do something then do it properly or not at all.
Saturn has so much power being in the sign of structure, which he rules, making this a perfect time to build our own personal structured goals. While Saturn is in his station until the 19th, we can stop and make sure we have not taken any short cuts or missed a step or two in our quest for growth.
You cannot rush Saturn and his call for structure, together with the practical hardworking pedantic energy of Virgo we can really make life happen. Take these opportunities in September to get your life back on track, even if the track need to take a new direction.
September promises rewards to any hardworking focused, disciplined individual that has looked defeat in the eye and conquered it.
Jupiter is big and loving the chance to expand without any restrictions in the sign Sagittarius, this growth has been stunted this past month and Jupiter and Saturn have been connected. Essentially the ability to expand has been on hold as Saturn bring us the message to taka one more good look at how we can achieve what it is we desire.
Well Saturn finally lets go of the hold he has had on Jupiter for the past Month. So without restrictions and trusting all the hard work we have put in place, we can grown in any direction if we have the will to do so.
This month will not be as easy as it sounds; to survive some of us will need to climb out of our comfort zones to make change happen. We will need a good dose of self discipline to make opportunities work. Saturn wants structure and Jupiter growth, but this may not always be the way we envisaged, to grow we need to let go of ideals and make the practical, at times difficult choices.
Spring is on our doorstep, nature is alive again and growing at a fast pace, spewing out pollens and wonderful smells.
For some this can aggravate our sensitive nasal mucosa pushing up our histamine levels. Most foods contain some level of histamine; add this to the seasonal change we can react in many ways, from skin allergies to airway inflammation, sinus, hay fever, and asthma.
Did you know that as food ages or spoils, even ferments its histamine levels increase significantly? So by avoiding aged food and vegetables and sticking to fresh foods is one way to control your histamine levels.
But the body is amazing as it produces diamine oxidase, or DAO, the primary enzyme that breaks down ingested histamine.
There are minerals and vitamins we can ingest to enhance this process –
Vitamin C and B6, Zinc with strong anti inflammatory and histamine properties, copper can lower the histamine blood levels…now I see a reason for the copper bracelets people wear…and finally we have Magnesium which also helps DOA to break down the histamine cells. The minerals are found in vegetables, especially those grown in rich soil.
Well that’s it for this month, for my followers who watch my You Tube clips, I am having vocal cord problems so have had to put them on hold. To follow the weekly posts you can always log onto my Website www.sublunar.co.za and read what’s up with the planets. I am off to find a copper necklace, may help my voice…worth a try
