Scorpio September 17 New Moon Forecast

Oh happy day! It is time to invigorate your income, social and career networks, and if oyu have an older sibling connect more deeply with them.

Self employed? If so this is a great time to set your intentions around earnings and maybe review your rates. Are you charging enough - or maybe too much? Whichever the case this is the one new Moon that is super supportive of new beginnings for 2020 to highlight these areas of your life.

Saturn is in the mix too, ready to lend a disciplined hand to your plans! This will helo you to reach goal although remember it will be a slow and pace since It is Saturn, after all!

Since the new Moon occurs in a lunar mansion that is super supportive for new beginnings, it is a great time to set your intentions and then do whatever ritual (candle lighting, crystals, tarot card pull) you like to support these intentions once the Moon has shifted to waxing.

I would recommend working with  tourmalated quartz and/or black Moonstone for this new Moon energy. The black tourmaline and black Moonstone brings in the energy of Saturn in harmony with the Moon.


The times best for rituals are listed on part one of this forecast here.

One other important note - Rahu and Ketu (north and south nodes of the Moon) change signs on September 20. Rahu moves into Taurus and Ketu into Scorpio.  This will bring the eclipses to these two signs for the next 18 months. More on this before the eclipses in November and December.

Mars Retrograde 2020 and Key Fall Transits

Mars retrograde 9/9 - 11/13

Mars square Saturn 9/15-30

Mars square Pluto 10/1-15 and 12/15-23

Your all important ruler Mars is standing still right now as he prepares to retrograde Wednesday, September 9 in Aries. His other sign!

Aries is in your chart is associated with health, daily routines, mundane work activities, being of service to others, plus enemies and debts. Now is a terrific time to look at these areas of you life and determine what might be implemented to improve the matters of this house once Mars goes direct in November.

Mars influence to this part of your chart will not be the only one though! Serious Saturn is asking you to get with the program and be disciplined around your health, work and daily routines! The combined energies of Mars and Saturn can lead to frustration and anger, so be particularly mindful when this influence is strong the last two weeks of September.

And once Saturn becomes a little less comes the Mars/Pluto square! Square energies among planets create tension. When harnessed properly this can get a lot of things done! But when the planets are fiery and impatient Mars and potent and sometimes plotting Pluto the energy can be a bit convoluted. Beware of a potential wolf in sheep's clothing around this time. An enemy could really be a frenemy!


  • Mars Retrograde Negative: Revisiting situations or experiences that can re-surface anger, aggression or impulsiveness.

  • Mars retrograde Positive: Revising reactivity to situations that would normally cause frustration, impulsiveness or anger.

  • Mars Square Saturn Positive : Problem solving, tenacity, courage and methodical process combined.

  • Mars Square Saturn Negative: Frustration and anger, feeling blocked.

  • Mars Square Pluto Positive : Unearthing subconscious patterns that no longer serve your highest good, harness energy of these two to create positive physical and emotional changes.

  • Mars Square Pluto Negative: Subconscious rage, hidden aggression, manipulative behaviors

September 1 Full Moon Vedic Astrology Forecast

Please note Vedic (sidereal) Sun Sign dates are not the same as in Western astrology. It is best to read for your Vedic rising sign if you know it. If you do not know it you can calculate your free Vedic chart here. Please keep in mind your individual chart and current planetary period and sub periods will modify your experience.

This is a very personal and potentially emotional full Moon for you Scorpio! The full Corn Moon illuminates the area of your horoscope that is most associated with mother, home, and happiness. If you are among the many who are now working at home, you may want to take this full Moon ending time to determine what in your home environment needs to go in order for you to be more productive and more peace-filled in your home environment.

Additionally your all important chart ruler, Mars, is going to be headed retrograde for the first time since July 2018! Mars will also be a head to head battle with Saturn off and on from now through the end of the year. More on this later in the month, but suffice it to say, patience will be required over the balance of 2020 for so many who are ruled by Mars and Saturn, which includes YOU! Count to ten and be sure to breathe through it. Connect with nature and don't push so hard when you feel like you are hitting obstacles in your path. It will come...just more slowly than usual!
