New Moon 9 September 2018 – Opportunity and Success

New Moon September 2018 AstrologyThe New Moon on Sunday September 9, 2018 falls at 17° Virgo. The New Moon September 2018 astrology is very fortunate because the main influence in September 2018 is Jupiter sextile Pluto. This aspect of opportunity and success climaxes on September 12.

However, the September 2018 new moon is opposite Neptune which causes confusion, deception and fear. Resolving these initial problems will enable you to focus on reaching your new moon goals. Thankfully, the positives outweigh the negatives and there are more solutions than problems. This new moon will help you uncover secrets and overcome your fears. And this will lead to more confidence and success.

New Moon Meaning

A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28 day cycle. Sun conjunct Moon gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. So this is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

The effects of the September 9 new moon will last four weeks up to the October 8 new moon. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from September 9 to the September 24 Full Moon.

New Moon September 2018 Astrology

The September 9 new moon at 17°00′ Virgo makes strong aspects to three planets. New moon opposite Neptune is the most important influence but it is the only difficult aspect in the chart shown below. Helpful aspects to Jupiter and Pluto offer solutions to any problems caused by Neptune. New Moon September 2018 comes just three days before Jupiter sextile Pluto. The opportunities for growth and success from this very lucky aspect outweigh any initial fears or confusion caused by Neptune.

New Moon Problems

New Moon opposite Neptune is the strongest aspect in the new moon horoscope. This is a challenging influence that makes you more susceptible to confusion and deception. And this can lead to insecurity and discouragement. But you will notice in the chart below there are four harmonious blue aspects compared to the single red aspect. So there will be many opportunities to clear up any misconceptions or confusion.

Other possible challenges include ego conflicts, and fear of competition or dealing with assertive people. Sneaky people may try to take advantage of your kindness and compassion. Then there are the tricksters, charlatans and others trying to sell you things you do not need or that do not exist. Difficult Neptune aspects also bring gossip, scandal, secrets and lies.

It is important to be very clear and honest about your own intentions. But those helpful blue aspects will make it easier to clear up any recent deception, underhand tactics or lying on your part. They will help you deal with the harsh realities of life and take precautions to avoid loss and disappointment. This will give you time to develop your positive Neptune potential through compassionate, creative, spiritual and charitable activities.

  1. what if this new moon conjuncts my natal north node? I couldn’t find anything on your transits section on this.. any thoughts? Thanks!

    • Hi Esa. I have not written anything about the lunar nodes because I am not sure about their influence. Especially as to why one node should be more challenging than the other.

      • Wow you’re so right. I’ve studied them but don’t see north node as any different than south node. However I have seen eclipses to them in hard angles as end of life affects. They seem to be important but I think both ends of thenodes are equally powerful

  2. quick question is this new moon on an ascendant more likely a start or end of a relationship (that’s already ended)

    • That is a hard question Esa. I think conjunctions to Descendant tell more about new relationships. I got married after the last two eclipses on my Descendant.

  3. Hi Jamie, this new moon sounds positive!
    It falls straight away over my natal Jupiter and Persephone and also makes a conjunct with natal Juno by less than 1 degree. Natal Jupiter makes a sextil (2.12 degree orb) to natal Venus and (2.59 degree) natal and Pluto (Pluto conjunct IC) and less than one degree orb to natal Apollo. It also activates a trine to natal Chiron (1 degree orb) and a square (2 degree) to natal Neptune. … my whole chart seems to be activated!
    Could this be the kick off of a new positive and rewarding cycle? I have gone through a lot of gloomy and hard times.
    Is there hope? ….your post sounds so positive …

    • Yes Meli is sounds like Jupiter sextile Pluto is doing good things to your chart, and this new moon puts a lot of initiatory energy into this wonderful aspect.

      • Thank you Jamie, feeling positive 🙂
        I read that 17 degree Virgo as well as 18-19 degrees Virgo/ Pisces seems to be related to large sums of money, scientific and electronic milestones, professionals thresholds, significant meetings and milestones and also violence and disasters related to Mercury (cars, roads, tube, bridges,…). That these degrees seem to activate or be actived during significant meetings of people who will
        be important to one another, or at the time of courtships and marriages.

        If I think back the eclipse in Sept 2015 and 2007 and even the moon on 11 september 2001 I must say that it was indeed related to significant people to me (emotionally) but not so positive at the time (now looking back it may be seen as something positive in disguise), career thresholds and somehow money.

        Could it be related to my Jupiter & Juno square Neptune or Jupiter and Juno trine Chiron?

        It is also true that Uranus was transiting Pisces and made an opposition during the eclipse of 2007. It was indeed unexpected in all senses. On the one hand it was awful in regards to relationships but it was somehow good professionally (I do have Chiron on 10th) as it allowed me to close a painful chapter and became an important threshold in my professional career that became official 3 months later. It also triggered a sudden financial change that was not so positive.

        In 2015, it was related to a significant person to me (emotionally) but it turn out at the time as a heartbreaking moment. Curiously enough this person has remained in my life until now. Emotions and attraction have remained but maybe Saturn transiting Sagittarius (5th house for me) created many obstacles due to distance and travels…

        So could this moon somehow reactivate the last eclipse?
        Could the trine to Chiron heal and bring another professional threshold?
        My MC is at 22.12 is it triggered by the new moon?
        I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
        Thank you for writing so interesting articles!

  4. Hello, I have 17 degree moon squaring neptune and jupiter semiquintiles pluto in my natal chart. Does that mean the negative aspect is more prominent?

    • Do you mean 17 degree Virgo Moon? Anway, anytime a challenging aspect is made more prominent by a moon phase of transiting planet. it gives you an opportunity to work through any problems that is has been causing. This is a good chance to make progress.

      • lol, funny but someone literally compared me to Elon Musk today because I was hard on a friend who, I must say, offended me earlier in the week

  5. Jupiter will be conjunct exactly on my natal pluto (18), would that emphasize the power relationship of this new moon?

  6. Great write up. I learned a lot. It looks like Neptune is pretty close to Mars and North node in my 7th house. Retrograde Neptune, HMMM? Love your site man!
