As September begins, there are two important planetary bodies in earth sign Virgo ruling your career and vocation, your status and reputation. The Sun is here until the 22nd and action planet Mars is in Virgo until the 15th.
Whether you have a new contract, you’re taking on a promotion or you’re looking for a job, work is where it’s at. It’s an excellent month to be busy and get back into a routine, especially if you’ve been away on holiday or out of employment.
The New Moon on the 7th could prove significant in this respect because a New Moon is a symbol of beginnings. It’s an excellent date to line up a meeting or interview or launch a career-related project.
The Full Moon on the 20th/21st also cuts across the foundations of your horoscope and the Virgo/Pisces axis of the zodiac. Ensure that you have a healthy balance between the personal side of life and the professional.
This could be an issue for you that requires resolution in the month ahead. Use the Full Moon to let go of anything that’s not working out for you.
Neptune opposes planets in Virgo this month, on the 2nd and 14th. It’s evident too during the lunations. This can be unsettling or leave you feeling unsure or unfulfilled.
It is important to discern whether any self-doubt is genuine or whether you can still find ways to stay on track with career goals.
The Libra scales are in evidence this month. For you, this flags up your friendship and group sector. The Sun enters Libra on the 22nd, the day of the Equinox but there are key planets in Libra throughout September. Here’s the pattern:
- Mercury (communication) all month
- Venus (love/relating) until the 10th
- Mars (action/drive) from the 15th.
This creates a lot of planetary energy in one of the most social sectors of your horoscope. This fits for you if you’re a typical Sagittarius. You’re one of the extrovert star signs and you often enjoy a wide circle of friends and varied activities.
If you’ve been thinking about joining a club, group or society, it’s an ideal time to do so. If you want to widen your social circle, put time and energy into your friendships. Create friendships that are mutually supportive rather than being a one-way influence.
Channel Mars’ energy into peace-loving activities as Mars in Libra is a positive Mars for collective and collaborative ventures. Open the lines of communication in all your relationships before Mercury turns retrograde on the 27th.
Lucky dates for making connections: 6th & 20th
Love & Patience
Love feels mysterious this month with Venus, the planet of love, diving deep into Scorpio from the 10th.
Sometimes, this flags up a love affair or a private liaison. Or, perhaps you’re learning a lot about yourself and what you want and need when it comes to love and relationships.
Romantic vibes are strong on the 29th. However, with your partner planet, Mercury turning retrograde on the 27th, this isn’t the time to rush love. Instead, favour patience and a soulmate connection.
The important Jupiter-Pluto connection peaks on the 11th but remains active throughout September, October & November.
This is a significant aspect for you because Jupiter is your ruling planet. Currently in Aquarius, this lights up your communication and marketing sector, your local community and neighbourhood. It’s a good time to reach out to others, to sell your services and be expansive and generous.
Pluto in Capricorn is in your personal money sector so there may be a financial loss or debt that’s involved in some way. Taking a financial hit to help others, perhaps. Or, cutting your expenses so you can join in with other activities.
Mercury Retrograde Tips
There’ll be more advice on Mercury’s retrograde phase next month. For now, here are some top tips on how to prepare before the planet of communication switches direction on September 27th:
- back up important files and correspondence
- deal with any technological niggles or transport issues
- line up key meetings or interviews
- have those all-important heart-to-hearts
- sign & seal contracts before the end of the month
