Virgo Horoscope September 2019

This is what the start of September feels like for you, from an astrological perspective. You’ve been bored or held back, craving action or excitement.

Then, when movement comes, it does so at such a fast rate of knots, you find it hard to keep up. You might even wonder if what you wished for was what you wanted all along.

Star Of The Show

Truthfully, the first two weeks of September could be incredibly dynamic and personally fulfilling for you. This is because you have Mercury, your ruler, in your star sign, Virgo, until the 14th. Plus, Mercury teams up with all the other planets and the lights, the Sun and Moon, during this fortnight.

It’s electric astrology and incredibly busy and lively. Perhaps, you’re winning over and schmoozing everyone with your stories, or you’re leaping into action finding where you can help and be of service. Everyone wants a piece of you, in a good way. You’re either popular, in demand or the person everybody needs, for one reason or another.

So, get ready for a whoosh of planetary activity that could make the first two weeks of September rush by in a haze of activity. If you want to boost your image or profile or further a personal goal or aim, this is the time to make it happen. It’s rocket-turboed full-on planetary movement.

Nearest & Dearest

Other areas to note which are pulled into this dynamic planetary pattern are your home and family, your close relationships. How these fit in with your current plans or how they don’t if you’re busy with your own projects, your work or business.

This is due to a major planetary aspect which takes place on the 21st but is active throughout the first two weeks of September. This is between Jupiter in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces. This is the third and final encounter of these two Gods. They came together in January and June of this year and this is their last hoorah.

Together, they are where you find dreams, hope and faith in life. They expand life’s bounty, lift you up and carry you far. For some of you Virgos, this has been a dreamy and romantic period when it comes to love. Neptune has been in full flow, wafting romance and seductive influences your way. For other Virgos, it may have been a time of disillusionment, when you’ve lost your way or found yourself being seduced, but not in a good way.

Whatever’s been going on in your love life, your personal relationships, this has a knock on effect in your home and family life. This area may have expanded this year, thanks to a step-family, a house move or a new addition to the family. You may have changed things around to accommodate a shifting dynamic.

One way or another, your emotions are likely to be full and heart-felt this September, especially up to and including the Full Moon on the 14th. At times, you may find your close relationships overwhelming or hope-less. Astrology plays out in different ways for different people but knowing what to expect can be hugely helpful regardless.

The Full Moon is likely to be a peak period in the month as it falls in your opposite star sign, Pisces. It’s a gorgeous Full Moon for celebration and being with the ones you love. This could be thanks to a proposal, a wedding or anniversary. Also, there may be some sadness if it’s a time when you’re remembering loved ones or there’s a sense of loss or past grievances emerge.

Moving On

A few days after the Full Moon, the planet Saturn turns direct in Capricorn and the sector of your horoscope which rules children, lovers and the things in life that you give birth to. This includes creative projects.

Saturn has been retrograde, i.e. on go slow since April 30th. Since then, it’s been in retreat alongside the karmic South Node. After the 28th, Saturn begins to part ways from the South Node and move ahead. This could signify an important turning point in your own life or the lives of people close to you.

It’s about stepping through fear on the one hand and moving out of your comfort zone. It’s about release and letting go. Perhaps, moving away from the past or a situation that holds you back.

It could be a tough decision to put one foot in the front of the other and keep moving doggedly forwards, without looking back. You may be leaving someone or something behind or feel ready and determined to make amends. Again, it feels like big astrology for you.

A Lighter Vibe

Things do lighten up considerably from mid-month onwards. In fact, after the 14th, when your ruler Mercury joins love planet Venus in Libra, one of the social air signs. They move forward in to Libra together, so find your allies and create strong alliances in your life. This is especially important if it benefits you financially.

You currently have Juno, the planet linked to contracts, in your star sign, Virgo. You may be negotiating a deal or partnership as soon as September’s astrology kicks in.

Further along and on the 23rd, the Sun’s move into Libra heralds the Equinox. This last week of the month feels delightful. There’s a New Moon in Libra on the 28th and some beguiling planetary aspects between Mercury and Jupiter, Venus and Jupiter on the 24th and 28th respectively.

This spells good news for home and family, money and security. You might choose to treat the ones you love, buy something special for your home or be talking about a house move, a holiday or trip away.

It’s an ideal time to create balance and harmony in your life, especially if the first couple of weeks turn out to be frantically busy. Embrace the best of Jupiter – expansion – and Neptune – dreams/imagination – this month. Be wary of lies and untrustworthy individuals. You’re an earth sign Virgo, with natural intuition. This is a good month to use your instincts wisely.

Leo Horoscope September 2019

Chihuly Art – Kew Gardens

Leo season is officially over and this month, it’s down to business. Your ruler, the Sun, is exceptionally busy in the first half of September in one of the ‘get real’, ‘head down, bum up’ earth signs.

In other words, it’s a month for efficiency, order and structure. This is because the Sun, your ruler, is in earth sign, Virgo, until the 23rd.

Money Matters

Virgo rules your personal money, your possessions, also your values and self-worth. It’s about how you support yourself financially but also considering where your money goes and what you do with it. This would be a good time to think about how you trade your time for money, the ways you make money and how you can use your money to be of service to others.

On the 6th and 13th, your ruler, the Sun, teams up with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and your work and routine sector. This is where the dominant energy lies as we prepare to change season. For you, the earth signs are prominent. This is about your security, the basics of life and bringing form and structure into your daily routine.

It’s an important month to consider what you do with your time, whether you use it effectively, whether you’re overly busy or unemployed. The first half of September could feel frantic at times as themes of overwhelm and exaggeration kick in. Whenever you feel out of control, rein things in, focus on what’s simple and easy and don’t allow your mind or fears to take over.

Virgo season is about nature. It’s about nurturing, feeding and nourishing yourself and others. Taking care of the earth, taking care of your body and soul. Simple appreciations, kindness and caring.

Big-hearted Generosity

Yet, at times, you might find your big-hearted generous nature called forth. This has a lot to do with the Jupiter-Neptune square which peaks on the 21st. Jupiter in Sagittarius highlights luck, also speculation. Neptune in Pisces highlights joint finances, shared resources and collaboration.

This combination is charitable, giving and compassionate. It taps in to the side of your Leo nature which wants the best for everyone. If you have available funds, look at how you can invest them wisely. You could be fund-raising with others or helping your children manage their finances better.

What isn’t advised is to go over the top, get carried away or spend it all on the horses. Jupiter in Sagittarius is a lucky influence for you but this month, Jupiter’s influence is exaggerated, even out of control. Yes, this could bring in a win or two as the Gods of abundance knock on your door but don’t overdo it.

Also, be savvy about money and investments. Neptune can seduce and beguile so ensure you’re not deluded or scammed. Keep your feet on the ground financially and emotionally and make the right cash moves.

There is potential to do well this month, especially around the Full Moon on the 14th. Yet, there are some unsavoury characters lurking in the shadows. Don’t allow yourself to get drawn in.

Sweet Loving Vibes

Jupiter’s back in action later in the month when it teams up with Mercury and Venus in Libra on the 24th and 28th respectively. The latter date is also a New Moon. This is the time when you can make logical, rational decisions about luck and speculation. You can ask the right questions and make the right moves to boost your chances of success, whatever your project or ideas.

This time of the month is promising for love too, as Jupiter is in your romance sector. There’s a charming vibe, whether you’re the one doing the wooing or someone else goes out of their way to make you feel special. And, if anyone is to win over your Leo heart, they’re wise to make you feel appreciated and adored.

Keep It Calm

Libra season starts on the 14th, as this is the day when social Mercury and lovely Venus enter Libra. They are paving the way for your ruler’s move into Libra, the Sun, on the 23rd. This is a key date in astrology as it heralds the Equinox and the start of a new season.

Libra rules communication and community in your horoscope. It’s about making new connections and getting the right people on your side. Once the Sun is in Libra, this enhances your sales and marketing skills, your ability to use the written and spoken word to make swift progress.

Balance and harmony are key Libra traits and you’re seeking ease and comfort in your close relationships, personal and professional. Conflict and aggression will be a no-no, a turn off. You may naturally find yourself veering towards the people in your life who calm you and ground you.

Tough Decisions

The theme shifts away from work to pleasure as the month progresses. Also, events on or around the 18th may be significant in this respect. This is the date when Saturn, the taskmaster of the heavens, turns direct after five months retrograde motion.

Saturn moved into retreat mode on April 30th. Ever since it’s been locked together with the karmic South Node. They have been pursuing the same path backwards through the zodiac.

It’s only on the 28th of this month that they begin to move apart. Therefore, consider what this means for you. The symbolism is about release and letting go; it’s about a shift in purpose or direction. If things have been tough health-wise or work-wise, you may know what you need to do in order to move on.

It could be a tough decision you have to make, perhaps about a permanent job or putting firm boundaries in place. Staying in your comfort zone is no longer viable especially if you’ve felt stuck or paralysed in your current situation. Consider what you’re ready to leave behind and take the first step towards moving on.

Cancer Horoscope September 2019

Chihuly Cancer
Chihuly Art – Kew Gardens

You can expect a busy start to the month of September. There was a New Moon on August 30th and you will first see the new crescent Moon in the night sky as September begins.

As you’re a Moon child and ruled by the Moon, this is the initiating stage of the Moon cycle. It’s forward-moving, direct and pro-active.

Organised Vibes & Overwhelm

Also, the New Moon took place in Virgo and there are a stack of planets in this sector of your horoscope. Virgo rules communication in your chart and there’s a theme of going back to school or getting back into your everyday vibe. This is about your daily commute, what you do in life day in, day out.

Virgo rules your siblings and neighbours, your local community and it’s often a period of the year when you’re busier than usual. You might be ferrying family back and forth, be on the school run or dealing with a lot of correspondence in your place of work.

Ideally, Virgo season is the time to get organised and structure your life. It’s a good time to put new daily habits in place that benefit your mind, body and spirit. Manage your time well and see how you can effectively utilise the time you spend commuting or your lunch hour or other key areas in the day.

There is, however, a potential theme of overwhelm in your life, especially in the first two weeks of the month. This is because big planet, Jupiter, is square to all the planets in Virgo from the 2nd to the 12th.

Jupiter’s nature is to exaggerate, increase and extend. You could have too much on your plate in September, so do watch your stress levels. Another reason to prioritise good health and fit regular exercise into your routine. Some of you may be juggling a second job or standing in for fellow employees who are on leave or ill.

Seeking Inspiration

There’s another planet too which is bringing an added dimension to this month’s busy astrology. That planet is Neptune in Pisces, which triggers the inner planets in Virgo from the 4th to the 14th, the day of the Full Moon.

At its best, Neptune is creative, the dreamer, inspiring your imaginative projects, ideas and plans. It takes you away from your desk or the pile of ironing or laundry. It conjures up a new world, an escape route from routine.

In your horoscope, Neptune stimulates your 9th house which represents travel and study, knowledge and learning. You may find you’re pulled in too many different directions this month. Yet, at the same time, it’s wherever you find fulfilment in life that gives your path meaning or purpose.

You could join a book club, sign up to an evening class or learn a new language. It’s a good month to update your skills or have future goals that you’re working towards. If you can get away on or around the Full Moon on the 14th or during the Jupiter-Neptune square on the 21st, you’re in tune with your stars. A quick city break perhaps or a visit to relatives in another part of the country.

Creating Connections

Communication and connection will help you make sense of things this month. This is especially true if you feel lost or disillusioned about what’s happening in the world or you don’t know which way to turn in your personal life.

Ensure you have a shoulder to lean on and a listening, attentive ear. Repay the favour and be available when friends or family need someone to talk to. These are disorienting times we live in and this month in particular could be especially confusing.

The Full Moon period is often an emotional time for you and it’s always helpful for you to know when the light of the moon is at its peak. The day of this month’s Full Moon, the 14th,  indicates a turning point as two of the inner planets, Mercury and Venus, move into Libra side by side.

Home & Family Priorities

Libra is the star sign at the base of your horoscope ruling your home and family, your past and where you come from. This is where you find balance and harmony in your life. Retreat to your home, your nest, your loved ones if you’re feeling unbalanced. If you need to restore harmony or order at home, make this a priority in the month ahead.

The home and family theme continues through the Equinox on the 23rd, the day the Sun enters Libra. This would be a good time to consider your surroundings and where you live, whether you want to redecorate or find a new home.

You may discover that working from home is possible during the latter stages of September. This will help resolve any issues that you have on your commute or working away from home which rarely suits your Cancer temperament. The period from the 24th to the 28th feels helpful and restorative and is a good time to re-work your routine.

The 28th is the day of the New Moon in Libra, so prioritise these areas once again – home and family. Remember too that as a Sun Cancer, you create family wherever you are, so this isn’t only about blood relatives but people dear to your heart, your employees or the people you work alongside. This is the time to set your intentions and pick up on this forward-moving vibe once again.

Relationship Turning Point

Finally, September could bring a significant turning point with regard to a close relationship. This is because, on the 18th, Saturn, your partner planet, turns direct in Capricorn and your relationship sector.

Saturn turned retrograde back in April. Ever since, it’s been in retreat next to the karmic South Node. Only on the 28th, do these two part company as Saturn moves away. Therefore, consider what this symbolism means for you. Are you ready to leave your comfort zone behind when it comes to love and relationships? Is your partner beginning a new stage in life?

The themes are release and letting go, while standing firm and putting boundaries in place. It’s intriguing symbolism which suggests something has to give, even if moving forward feels scary. Take good care of yourself during this period in the month.

Gemini Horoscope September 2019

Chihuly Gemini
Chihuly Art – Kew Gardens

Your planet Mercury is incredibly active in the first half of September. It meets up with all the other planets and the two lights of the planetary pantheon, the Sun and Moon by the 13th. This is quite extraordinary even by swift-moving Mercury’s standards.

For one reason or another, it seems as if you’re in the thick of action and what you have to say can influence other people. You could also find that you’re exceptionally busy.

Home & Family Plans

During this period, Mercury is in earth sign Virgo, its other sign of rulership. Virgo rules your home and family, your past and where you come from. It’s the star sign at the base of your horoscope, what roots you and keeps you feeling grounded.

Therefore, it’s wise asking yourself why this area of your life is so busy. You might be asking other people for support, helping out more than usual with family or have lots of plans for your home or the place you live or work.

This would be a good time to make lists to ensure nothing gets dropped or forgotten. Virgo is the star sign which represents order and structure, analysis and strategy. You can get a lot done now but it’s super busy too.

Juggling People & Career

Also, there may be other reasons why you’re juggling lots of different balls and trying your best not to drop any. This is because of a major planetary aspect between Jupiter in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces. These two planets are boundless, hopeful, also potentially overwhelming or over the top.

These two giants make their third and final planetary aspect on the 21st. They first came together in January and June of this year. Plus, during the first half of September, they trigger all the inner planets moving through Virgo and your home and family sector.

This pulls in other people, other areas of your life. Jupiter in Sagittarius is about partnership, both personal and professional. You may be working out how to live with someone or how to work alongside someone successfully. You could discover this month that you have quite different ideas about what’s right and what’s not.

Neptune, on the other hand, is currently in Pisces and your career and vocation sector. This is where your dreams and hopes lie, where you engage with your mission, your purpose in life. It’s likely that your ideas or projects are off the scale. You want to expand your horizons fully, to see the world or save the world.

You want more than everyday routine. You need an escape route, an outlet from the 9-to-5. This month’s events could prove extraordinary for you and be deeply fulfilling. You may find that by the end of the month, you have a new vision for what you want for yourself, for your family.

Yes, it is a gorgeous month to play big and live fully. This will become evident to you around the Full Moon on the 14th which falls in Pisces and your career and vocation sector.

There will, however, be times when you feel lost or confused about what next or simply overwhelmed with the choice or options in front of you. Also, you need to watch out for being seduced or fooled and keep a close eye on your family to ensure that they’re not hoodwinked.

Not everyone will benefit from this month’s astrology, especially people who are more sensitive, more susceptible to the pull of glamour, fame or riches. The trick is to keep your feet on the ground and engage your common sense, if in doubt.

If you are entering into a completely new chapter in your life, then embrace it wholeheartedly. Go out of your way to meet new people and seek new opportunities. If you’re looking for work, expand your horizons and think global. You might consider moving and volunteering abroad or choose to play an active role in the lives of your family.

Loving Vibes

Love too is part of the planetary picture, especially once your ruler, Mercury, and the planet of relating, Venus, enter Libra on the 14th. This could feel easier for you as Libra is a fellow air sign, when logic and rationality kick in. You’re back in the domain of working things out rather than trusting and living alongside hope and faith.

This airy vibe continues through to the Equinox, when the Sun enters Libra on the 23rd. This date heralds a change of season and it’s a time when fun and play dominate. Do whatever gives you pleasure, team up with people you love, your children, a new lover, your social circle.

Libra rules a lucky sector of your horoscope, when enjoyment and entertainment peak and your creative juices begin to flow. Be actively social during the second half of September, especially if you’re looking for love. Events around the New Moon in Libra on the 28th could be exceptional for you.

This is the date that Venus and Jupiter unite, the two best planets, one in your romance sector, one in your relationship sector. It’s gorgeous, loving planetary energy. And, the 24th, is another date to note when your planet Mercury teams up with Jupiter in a similar pattern. Prioritise love and relationships as September comes to a close.

Letting Go

Finally, there is one more important turn of events to note. Saturn, the taskmaster of the heavens, turns direct in Capricorn and your joint finance sector on the 18th. Since April, Saturn has been retrograde, retracing its steps through the zodiac alongside the karmic South Node. It’s only on the 28th when Saturn finally starts to pull away.

This could act as a release from debt or a stuck situation, financially, emotionally or sexually. The situation may intensify before it resolves but consider your personal situation in the areas mentioned. Make a conscious decision to let go of a bad habit or fear, to move forwards with purpose and determination.

Taurus Horoscope September 2019

Chihuly Taurus
Chihuly Art – Kew Gardens

A bevy of planets are in your fellow earth sign, Virgo, as the month begins. This is good news for you as you are one of the sensual, fertile, creative earth signs being a Taurus. This means that, as September begins, you’re likely to feel in your element.

Positive Vibes

The crackle of change continues to fizzle strongly in your horoscope, especially true for you if you’re born on April 26th or 27th. Yet, ideally, you’re happiest when life feels stable and secure, you can move at a leisurely pace and you have time to smell the roses. Virgo rules ones of the best sectors of your horoscope which is about good times and luck. Therefore, this planetary vibe feels positive for you.

It’s a glorious season to fall in love, make a baby, be proud of your offspring, enjoy yourself, line up top entertainment, start a new hobby or creative project. Think about what you can ‘give birth to’ or bring into the world. Now’s the time when your creative juices are flowing.

This abundant theme continues until the Full Moon on the 14th, exactly two weeks in to the month. Make the most of it. Continue to look at how you can improve your social life or find happiness in the small things. This is really important for you moving forwards, seeking gratitude and appreciation in what you have and your life as it is.

Money Dreams

That’s not to say you won’t be dreaming up some big ideas this month. You will, especially around the Full Moon on the 14th and the Jupiter-Neptune square aspect on the 21st. The Jupiter-Neptune square is important because it’s the third and final connection between these two boundless Gods.

Jupiter in Sagittarius rules money in your horoscope, joint finances and shared resources. Neptune in Pisces rules friends and group activities, your social and political alliances, your community.

These areas are where you’re being called out in to the world. You might be investing your money or teaming up with other people in a fund-raiser or a speculative venture to boost your future prosperity.

You could also discover a lot about the power of hope and faith. This includes your attitude to luck and what you believe about yourself and this precious life you’re born in to. As a Taurus and one of the earth signs, you tend to have good common sense and you’re savvy at sniffing out good deals and knowing when to step back.

Jupiter and Neptune are a powerful calling throughout September. They are especially potent for you on the 2nd and 4th when they connect with your ruling planet, Venus. This is a really good month for you to hone your money ‘nose’.

You may also need to use this natural skill of yours for other people. Some hopeful types could be seduced by lies or fake news or be easy prey to ideologies that act as a snake-charm. Keep your down-to-earth antennae on high alert so you can persuade people close to you to spend or invest their money wisely.

Some deals this month will be too good to be true. But, if you know your territory well and you have a good reputation for financial success, you could potentially strike it lucky. Trust your natural earthy intuition. This planetary energy peaks on the Full Moon of the 14th and the Jupiter-Neptune square on the 21st. The astrology is packed full of synchronicities and lucky moves.

Teamwork & Good Health

After the 14th, a more logical or rational approach is needed, as your planet Venus moves into air sign, Libra, hand in hand with the planet of communication, Mercury. This is good for finding your allies and creating helpful alliances at work.

Libra rules your work and routine, your lifestyle and your health. It’s the planet of balance and harmony, social skills and people pleasing. You’re likely to be happiest if work is social and you’re more effective working in a team. This theme continues through the Equinox on the 23rd, the day the Sun enters Libra, heralding a change of season.

This is the time to strategise and analyse and work things out together. The 24th and 28th of the month could prove lucrative, whether you’re starting a new job or working on a promotion or project with other team members. Lucky Jupiter is back in action on these two dates, in an easier and more straightforward manner.

The 28th is the day of the New Moon in Libra, which is ideal if you’re applying for a job or you want to boost your health or lifestyle. There’s a theme of new beginnings and it’s the best time of the month to set your intentions.

Removing Blocks

Also, consider which dreams you’re ready to move away from, to release or let go. This could link back to what took place earlier in the year, perhaps in April, a stand-out month.

Alternatively, you might find that a block is removed allowing you to find a new way forward, to make progress once again. The path may not be any less scary but you know that you’re ready to put one foot in front of the other.

Love & Romance

Love too could play its part, whether you’re moving closer to the one you love or you need to leave someone behind, for financial or emotional reasons.

The Full Moon on the 14th is potentially the most romantic day this month as it falls in Pisces and triggers your romance sector, where the Sun is in Virgo. Lose yourself in love or lift the veil of illusion. Either is possible but both begin by loving yourself fully.

Aries September 2019

Chihuly Aries
Chihuly Art – Kew Gardens

Find your song that involves ‘work’ and sing it dutifully throughout September. Your ruler, Mars, is in earth sign, Virgo, all month, which requires a hard-work ethic, a ‘head down, bum up’ stance.

As soon as September begins, this is the ideal time to tweak your routine, add some healthy habits to your lifestyle and focus on getting things done.

Order & Efficiency

Virgo is the sign of order so it’s an excellent month for tidying and sorting and bringing form and structure to your life. If you’re a list-maker, crack on. If you like spreadsheets to know how you’re doing, create a new one.

This is the ideal time to analyse and strategise and ensure you’re getting the results you want. As a fire sign, Aries, you’re great at leaping into something new. You’re not always as efficient at seeing things through to completion or checking out what’s working and what’s not.

Your ruler, Mars, teams up with Saturn on the 9th and Pluto on the 19th. Both planets are in Capricorn and your career and vocation sector. Another indication that this is a month to get on with the job at hand, to aim high and work diligently. In fact, you could impress someone in a position of authority if you keep showing up and you’re willing to go that extra mile.

Also, if you’re true to your star sign, Aries, you fare best when you’re physically strong and this is an excellent month to hone your fitness and boost your health. It would be a good time to train for a physical challenge or incorporate regular exercise in to your routine. Think about your eating habits too and whether you want to try something new.

Teamwork & Partnership

In the first half of September, it’s a good idea to find your allies and team up with other people. A flurry of planets are in Virgo up until mid-September. This includes social Mercury and the planet of relating, Venus. Working alongside other people will be more enjoyable than going it alone. You’re an independent soul by nature but teamwork is not only fun but more effective too.

The theme of partnership increases at the Full Moon on the 14th. This is because, on the same day, Mercury and Venus change star sign and enter Libra, your opposite sign. Plus, the 23rd is the Equinox, the day when the Sun moves into Libra, heralding a new season.

Libra represents all forms of partnership in your life, both personal and professional. It’s about your 1-to1’s whether you decide to take on a personal trainer, employ a cleaner or VA or find a buddy to team up with so you can be accountable to another person.

This month’s New Moon also falls in Libra on the 28th. This could turn out to be a stand-out date for love and relationships as the two best planets, Venus and Jupiter, also unite. Make the most of this harmonious planetary vibe and create good connections in your life.

When planets are in Libra, it’s important to compromise, listen to both sides of the coin and weigh things up carefully. It’s a very different planetary energy from your direct and forthright star sign, Aries. You can learn from your opposite sign. Life often becomes easier when you take on some of the opposite sign’s traits.

Hopes & Dreams

This could turn out to be a big month for other reasons too. Firstly, the planets Jupiter and Neptune are strong all month, peaking on the 21st. This is the third and final time this year that these two Gods make a square aspect between Sagittarius (Jupiter) and Pisces (Neptune).

Think back to January and June to get a feeling of what this means for you. It’s about dreams on the one hand, allowing yourself to have hope and faith, follow a calling. It opens up the bigger picture in life, inspiring in you a need to see the world or save the world.

These planets are especially strong on the 12th and 14th, as this is when your ruler Mars teams up first with Jupiter, then with Neptune. This all happens around the Full Moon on the 14th when your emotions may feel overwhelming.

You might feel sensitive to what’s happening out in the world or find yourself facing some kind of existential angst. The Jupiter-Neptune theme is helpful when it’s channelled into big dreams but not so helpful if it means you’re questioning everything. If you find it hard to ground yourself this month, be out in nature, walk, be physical, move.

It would be an ideal month to go on a pilgrimage or take time out away from the hustle and bustle of life. Admittedly, this depends on your current situation and whether work is a necessity right now. Even if you are busy in your daily routine, find time for solitude and quiet, rest and repose. A spiritual path could be another way that this boundless planetary energy plays out for you.

Unblocking Roadblocks

Finally, Saturn, the taskmaster of the heavens, turns direct on the 18th. Saturn has been retrograde, i.e. on go slow since April 30th. Plus, Saturn has been retreating through the zodiac next to the karmic South Node. These two entities are close until the 28th but then Saturn starts to move away.

Think about this as a release, a letting go. What are you ready to say No to, to turn away from. If life’s proved challenging since April, either with regard to your work or a boss, your parents or a family situation, now’s the time to move on.

Some big astrology taking place this month requiring bold action. Put any difficulties behind you, let go of negative energy and redirect your compass towards a better world, a better future moving forwards.

September 2019 Astrology Forecast

September begins with Juno, Mercury, the Sun, Mars and Venus gathered together in the no-nonsense sign of Virgo. With this strong Virgo influence at work, much of our energy and intention is going into making improvements in our daily life and health. Virgo’s attention to detail means we are focused on the little things – tweaking, polishing, refining. The atmosphere is geared towards practical tasks, mundane life – chop water, carry wood as they say. The challenge is that we are coming up to the next and final square between Jupiter and Neptune, so all the Virgo planets create a succession of T-squares in the skies which stays in play until September 21 when the Jupiter–Neptune square becomes exact. Jupiter in Sagittarius will be at the apex of the T-square as the Virgo planets oppose Neptune in Pisces. Problems that we need to address are centred around subjects such as how do we stay hopeful (Jupiter) when everything is so uncertain (Neptune). How can we plan ahead (Jupiter) when everything feels so messy (Neptune)? How can we find greater meaning (Neptune) and understanding (Jupiter) when we’re so consumed by the trials of daily life (Virgo)? The Jupiter-Neptune square promises so much and normally discerning Virgo is having a hard time figuring out which projects, plans or ideas are worthy of attention and which are illusions and distractions. These themes become the backdrop for much of the month.

The Sun and Mars meet in the skies on September 2 at 09°Vi41′ beginning a new synodic cycle. Then on September 3, another new cycle begins with the Sun also conjunct Mercury on the next degree along. Mercury, the Sun and Mars are now all gathered on 10 degrees of Virgo, widely opposing Neptune and squaring Jupiter. The Sabian symbol of 10 Virgo is ‘In Her Baby A Mother Sees Her Deep Longing For A Son Answered’. Jupiter square Neptune can certainly represent great (Jupiter) wishes (Neptune) and Virgo is an earth sign. Earth makes things tangible. There’s a sense then that some of our dreams can come true during this period – and therefore we need to be careful about what we wish for!

On September 6 we have the First Quarter Moon in Sagittarius activating the T-square themes above as the Moon is close to Jupiter. Emotionally we’re feeling optimistic but irritated by Virgo’s insistence on precision. Maybe we just want a holiday from all the work, dreaming of far off places! Mars steps in to help on September 9 with a helpful trine to Saturn. After a couple of days of wanderlust, we’re ready to put our energies into our careers and tasks that take a long time to complete. Mars then sextiles the North Node on September 12, pushing us towards our soul’s evolution. But the square between Mars and Jupiter also on September 12 could mean we push too hard, too fast if we get over excited. These aspects can also inflame conflict, and everyone has an opinion on what is right or wrong. We need to stay aware of our triggers and do our best to stop situations escalating.

The Full Moon in Pisces on September 14 brings the ongoing T-square action to a head. It’s an enormous tidal wave of feelings as the Moon conjoins Neptune in the chart, squaring Jupiter and opposing all the planets in Virgo. On top of this, Mars then perfects its opposition to Neptune under an hour later and so we have a situation where we want to take action (Mars) but we just don’t know what to do for the best. In fact, this opposition can manifest as a dissipation of motivation – it’s a ‘what’s the point’ kind of aspect. We could feel muddled, unsure of our goals or just plain tired of dealing with huge nebulous issues that seem to have no answer. The key is to base our actions on our intuition but maybe we need a little time for the swell of emotion to level out. At least Venus and Mercury are both entering Libra on the same day which should prompt us to listen to one another and look for compromises.

On September 18, Saturn stations direct. Saturn has been retrograde since the end of April, asking us to do the inner work so that we can complete the work out there in the real world. Saturn is our inner sense of authority, our inner parent, our inner adult. It’s the part of us that is there to catch us if we fall and the part that is capable and responsible. Sometimes we don’t think we are good enough or strong enough to do the work that Saturn requires of us, so the retrograde journey encourages us to deal with unfinished business, limitations and blocks. Now that’s done, we are better set to manifest the reality which is more in alignment with our true needs and nature. The Sabian symbol of this station is ‘An Ancient Bas-Relief Carved In Granite Remains A Witness To A Long-Forgotten Culture’. It suggests then that we have created permanent new structures that will stand the test of time as well as alerting us to the fact that we need to be focusing on our long-term plans. In the mundane world, this symbol could perhaps be a stark reminder that we too could become the forgotten race if we don’t take responsibility for this rock we live upon.

Mars then offers us a boost of energy on September 19 with a trine to Pluto. This is muscle combined with power, motivation matched with intense focus. Energy combined with control. It’s great for powering through difficult tasks, strengthening fitness programs or even having an enormous clear out.

The month’s big event occurs on September 21 as mentioned earlier as Jupiter squares Neptune for the final time. In the mundane world, I talked of this aspect being the great uncertainty that we’ve been feeling about the future. Maybe some have experienced a loss (Neptune) of faith (Jupiter). In our personal lives, all of us have a big dream somewhere that we’ve been longing for, but the temptation is to get carried away on flights of fancy. To make anything of this transit, we need to look at where Saturn is transiting in our personal charts to see what work needs to be done to make our dreams real. Saturn’s ongoing sextile to Neptune says that we can’t just keep praying to the Gods for what we want, we have to take some responsibility and take definitive action too – that way we make the best of what Jupiter and Neptune has to offer. It’s likely that September is the time when some ideas and ideals dissolve because we realise they are unworkable. But we mustn’t get too caught up in any big disappointment. This is the universe’s way of clearing away what can’t work to make room for what can.

The Last Quarter Moon in Gemini on September 22 brings us to the last turn of the lunar cycle before the next Moon, the last test, the final resolve. The Moon and Sun are both in Mercury ruled signs, but each sign expresses itself in a very different way. Gemini is about mind and thought, schooling and learning. Gemini wants to be free to flit from topic to topic and place to place. Virgo however is grounded, focused on service and asks Gemini to apply what it’s learned on a practical basis. The solution to dilemmas around this time is to get out of the head and into the body. Make a decision then take a practical step to honour that decision.

The season then turns as the Sun enters Libra on September 23 marking Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and Spring Equinox in the Southern hemisphere. With the sign of relationships and harmony now illuminated, we need to find our balance both within ourselves and with each other. Issues of equality are raised around this time. Whilst relationships may benefit from this more sociable season, co-dependence, projection and superficiality are the shadows of this sign. In the Libra ingress chart, the Sun will oppose a Chiron-Black Moon Lilith conjunction. Old hurts may come back to haunt us and issues around the fear of rejection, resentment and unfair treatment could be uppermost. We need to be conscious of where we’re tempted to demonise aspects of each other when we feel hurt.

The Month ends with Saturn conjoining the South Node just as we have a New Moon in Libra on September 28. The Saturn-South Node conjunction is the last in a series of three that we have had this year. As the South Node talks of old karma, where we get stuck and our comfort zone, Saturn’s approach to this point has made our limitations manifest and given us no space to manoeuvre around them. If we recall that Saturn is a teacher who says, “this is where the work is”then all of us, both individually and collectively have been faced with some harsh truths about where we have held ourselves back or simply tried to avoid karmic lessons we’re here to learn. Now there is no more denial, no more escape, no more staying stuck. Saturn has taken us back to that same old problem because this time we are going to resolve it once and for all. Don’t forget that as Saturn conjoins the South Node, it opposes the North Node. We can’t move forwards until the job is done. It may feel heavy but it’s absolutely essential to our soul’s growth. With Saturn and the South Node in Capricorn, the issues we are dealing with may be around patriarchy, the system, authority figures, parents, structures, conditioning, responsibilities, commitment and doubt. Look to the place in your chart where Saturn is travelling to give you an idea of where Saturn is getting real in your life – see the list below for some ideas.

The New Moon in Libra still carries the story of wounding and fear of rejection as the Moon and Sun oppose Chiron. Lilith has by now skipped away from the conflict, but we may still be festering over some sore points. We need to find some healing. The New Moon is also closely quincunx to Uranus which adds some anxiety and a need for space. This is a time for new starts with our relationships, but we also must factor in individual needs. It feels awkward, but if we can be more sensitive to one another, the greater our ability to bridge differences.
