September. Nakarating rin tayo sa ‘ber’ months. Homestretch na to! Last quarter na, tapos, tapos na ‘tong napaka cute, napaka-loving at napaka-saya na 2020. Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, especially Capricorn) last 4 months of this insanity! Ang achievement niyo na ito ay hindi lang pang medal at trophy, pati plaque of appreciation pa at house and lot with kabuhayan showcase na din. Lahat na din ng jacket ni kuya Willie.
Frivolity aside, September in the Philippines is always long-awaited. The energy shifts immensely. Historically (historically?! haha), maaga pa para makipagsiksikan sa divisoria, pero lahat ng mall nagpapatugtog na ng Christmas songs. Hindi pa bakasyon, pero malamig na ang hangin, kaya magaan na ang pakiramdam ng mga tao. Malakas na loob gumastos, kasi ramdam na ang bonus kahit malayo pa.
This September is a bit different from what we are used to. Loss is such a prominent theme this year: loss of loved ones, loss of jobs, loss of finances, loss of freedom. Loss of kapamilya (network and tao na din). Much more can be added in that list. In a span of 9 months, napakadaming nagbago. Hello, wala ng ABS CBN sa TV. Kahit kapuso ka, e hindi mo maidedeny na end of an era pa din ang pakiramdam nun. Bawal na ngayon lumabas ng walang takip ang mukha. May mask na, may face shield pa. Magaalangan ka din yumakap sa mga magulang at tito at tita ngayon, kahit papano nakakalungkot din yun.
2020 will remain consistently difficult, but transformative, up till the very end. It’s not playing games. A few highlights this month: Saturn turns direct, and so will Jupiter, helping us to re-build part of our lives that have crumbled. However, Mars turns retrograde! Retrograde Mars is bold, demanding and unhinged. Being the rarest of all planetary retrogrades, it often causes upheavals and difficulties, in the areas of life that it touches. At the same time, it has this habit of making us feel like everything is on a standstill. Parang isang malaking statue dance ang pakiramdam ngayon, buong buwan. It will square Saturn for a week at the end of the month, as the grand finale. During this time, the 2 malefics will engage in the 2nd phase of a tension filled stand-off that will probably leave most of us wanting to tap out.
Actively find joy, now. And when you do, do not hesitate to share it with others. We all need to raise each other up, and be each other’s cheer leaders. Kaya natin lagpasan ito, tulong tulong, sama sama.
Kahit papano, nakaka-pangiti pa din talaga yung Jose Mari Chan memes. Parang inside joke yun na pang Pinoy lang. If you ever find yourself sad this September, umpisahan mo don. Baka mapasmile ka, kahit konti. 🙂
For really specific details on how this month’s Cosmic Weather may affect you, you will need your exact birth time and place, and a competent astrologer who can compute and interpret your charts. However, even without these, knowing the general energies at play can greatly assist in planning ahead. You know the drill!
