Cancer Horoscope 2017 for September
By Susan Miller
This will be a big month for communication, and how well you write, speak, edit, do research, sell, or teach may make or break your month. The smart money is betting on you, so there is no reason to worry. I will show you how the month is structured so that you will be ready to take opportunity as it comes.
The month starts, September 1, with a glorious aspect that leans on your communication skills. Uranus, the planet of surprise, currently based in your tenth house of fame, will be sending electric, positive lightning bolts to Mars. Mars, for the first part of September, will remain in your travel and communication center, so this is where the surprise will come up. This project seems different from all others - this one will have the power to lift your reputation and bring you generous compensation, too. Mars, remarkably, is the natural ruler of your tenth house of prestigious career gains, so this is like getting a double dip of good fortune. You won't expect the work that comes up for you to do at the start of the month, but you will see that doing it can put you on a new level in your field. Do well with this and you will be given more interesting projects in the future.
You will see in this report that this month, the message for the universe is very clear: how well you communicate will predict how far up the ladder you can go, and how much money you can earn. If you feel you could gain by taking a course in writing or public speaking, or to improve your work in sales, digital media, public relations, social media, or code writing, go for it - you would have so much to gain, and you would be able to put what you learn into action immediately.
September 3-4 will be two interesting days to watch for news about salary and finances in general, but most likely these days will center on money you can earn. On these days, Mars will reach 29 degrees Leo, the same degree of the new moon solar eclipse in Leo of last month, August 21. This suggests that Mars, the action planet, will unlock the message of the August 21 solar eclipse. If you didn't hear anything important on or near August 21, then you will on September 3-4. If you did, you may hear more detailed information that can assist you to find your pipeline of money.
A golden triangle is appearing in the sky in September's very first week, linking Uranus, in your house of fame, to Saturn in your house of workaday projects, to the third leg of the triangle, which will be Mercury, in your house of earned income. This is incredibly good news - you can make good money from your work this month, and it will bring you applause and industry praise.
There are additional days I would like you to circle on your calendar as special this month. Here they are:
Tuesday, September 12, will be a happy day when hard work on a project leads to more income, either as overtime, a future raise, or if you are self-employed (or do freelance on the side) a client who appreciates your work and is willing to pay top dollar to have you in their corner.
Saturday, September 15, is due to be very special for your finances, but this time, it will relate to your living situation. You may find a new place to live that is the right price, or if selling property, the sale will earn you a satisfying profit. Or, you may find the ideal piece of furniture at the flea market or for sale in a store that you won't want to wait to bring home.
Sunday, September 17 to Monday, September 18 will bring more surprise clients or assignments, and more generous compensation for your bank account.
Yet this month won't be just about work. Throughout most of September, you will have the option to pack and go to interesting nearby places because Mars, the action planet, will remain in your short distance travel house until September 19.
A case in point will be a trip you might take on or near September 5, a highly compatible full moon in Pisces 14 degrees. That full moon will light your ninth house of distant travel and be conjunct Neptune, suggesting you will want to go to a beautiful location near the sea or other body of water. Pluto will be supportive too, so if you have a partner, the two of you will go together, and you won't hear any complaints or excuses - just the opposite, your partner will be happy to go with you. There is some indication you might be traveling for work, and if you do go for that reason, if your work partner wants to come, agree to that idea. It looks like you could come back with the order.
The ninth house is more than just a travel house. It also rules the media, in terms of publishing and broadcasting projects, as well as academic pursuits in college. One of these areas will take your focus and bring closure within four days of September 5. Neptune's role will be to provide inspiration and a creative approach to your work, and Pluto's position shows you can work with a partner or buddy on a project with much success.
If your birthday falls on July 6, plus or minus five days, you will enjoy this full moon to the max. The same is true if you have Cancer rising 14 degrees, or the natal moon in Cancer, the same 14 degrees, with the same tolerance of plus or minus five degrees. If you have a natal planet in Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio, Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn at 14 degrees, plus or minus four degrees, chances are, you too will have a happy full moon.
Also in the first week, Mercury, the intellectual planet of facts and figures, logic, objectivity, negotiation, contracts, and commerce, will go direct on September 5. This will help you see progress on all fronts. If you felt you were on a hold button most of last month, that will clear up now.
Hold off on big purchases a few days after Mercury goes direct, for Mercury is at his worst at the start and end dates. If you want to buy a computer, smart phone, new expensive headphones, a high tech kitchen appliance, or a car, wait until September 17 if you can. I love that date for buying anything electronic or with moving parts.
For signing a contract, my favorite day would be September 12 or 14. If you can't wait, then sign. We can't control everything in life. I simply bring up the subject because I see so many friends rushing to sign the day Mercury goes direct, and it is not a good idea.
The big emphasis on communication will begin with the arrival of the majestic new moon in Virgo, 27 degrees, on September 19. You will have the Sun, new moon, Mercury, Mars, and Venus all crowded in your third house in Virgo, which adds up to half the solar system. This is the part of the month when things will start to move at a noticeably faster beat. You will be knee deep in a communication projects - writing, editing, fact checking, researching, sales, translation, marketing, publicity, advertising, social media - something! You will have to stay organized because lots of details will be thrown at you, almost all at once.
Neptune will oppose Mercury, but I think that will work out in a good way, to add originality and imagination to the work projects you will be focused on during in the weeks that follow this new moon of September 19.
Saturn will be in 90-degree angle to the new moon, a sure sign that work will be arduous. Keep thinking about the money you are earning, and the way you will treat yourself at the end of every week, such as to have a massage or a warm paraffin manicure, for this is the best way to soothe fingers that have been working too hard at the keyboard. Guys or girls can do either, and in a month like this, pampering won't be a luxury but a necessity.
The third house, which will be so lit up, also rules quick travel, so you might be on the road at this time, but I don't think it is to see clients (not unless you are in sales and travel all the time for that purpose). I think more likely you will be shuttered in a beautiful cabin, perhaps near a small lake, in a lush, tall mountainous region. All those planets in Virgo point to a spot where the earth, verdant trees, and mountains will take a starring role. I feel you may go there to concentrate on your work in a natural setting, away from distractions, and still able to catch your share of sunshine and warm breezes.
This new moon, September 19, highlights the third house, which also rules sisters and brothers. You may hear news, or you may be planning to do something with your sibling, such as to buy a house, go into business, or simply plan a surprise for your parents' 30th anniversary.
In matters of love, this month, your partner (if you have one) will be more supportive than last month. Venus in Virgo is a good place for Venus to be to engender love for you, Cancer - earthy Virgo blends perfectly with water-sign Cancer. What is unusual this month is that Venus' lover Mars will be in Virgo too, and that's sensational news. They will hit an exact conjunction on October 5.
These two sweetheart planets, Venus and Mars, love to be together, but rarely are - but they will draw close enough for you to feel the glow as soon as September 30. September 30-October 1 could be a very romantic weekend to go away. For sure, getting to a new setting, even for a few hours (if you can't go overnight), will do the trick to relax and shed pressures of the week. When you unwind, dear Cancer, love flows.
The eclipses of last month have spoken, and it seems you have been focusing your attention on money matters. This month, news about money should be quite positive, and additionally, career matters will also bring happy news.
Watch September 1 or 2 for professional developments that may suddenly arise to thrill you, and this may happen even if you are away on vacation. Active Mars will send a beam to surprise-a-minute Uranus, so news will come to you in an unusual way. For example, you may open a newspaper to see a positive profile piece written about you. Whatever you suppose will happen, won't, but something else, better, will.
The first days of September will indeed be an important time for you, for on September 3 and September 4, Mars will reach the exact degree of last month's eclipse of August 21, so news about a large sum of money due you may arrive. And wait! More good news about money can easily arrive September 15-18, and this time, the source may be your loving family or a client that believes in you and wants only to work with you.
A sweet part of the month involves your chance to get a refreshing change of scene. In the days leading to the full moon, peaking on September 5, you may be going away, and if so, it is likely to set off highly romantic, memorable sparks. That full moon will conjoin glittering Neptune, the planet of dreams, romance, and enchanting experiences. If possible, travel to a stunning setting at the seaside, a creek, or other body of water, which will make you feel right in your element.
Pluto, not to be outdone by Neptune, will offer his greetings too at the full moon September 5. Specifically, Pluto represents your partner, in love, marriage, or in business, and at this time you can count on having staunch support from your partner, which you will appreciate. If the trip you take near September 5 is for business, you and your client will reach accord, and all the way home, you be celebrating the fact that you struck a lucrative, win-win deal for both of you.
A bevy of planets are moving to your communication / travel third house at the new moon in Virgo on September 19, suggesting you may be on the road again later in the month, this time to a location near a thick forest and tall, breathtaking mountains. You may be going away to get away from time-burning office friends who mean well, but who are making you nervous about how much time these distractions are taking when they come by. Being alone in a cabin in the woods might sound like just your cup of tea. Hopefully, you can get reception on your phone - going away is good, but being a complete hermit is not in a month like this!
If you will not be traveling, a strong emphasis on your solar third house suggests you will be negotiating a deal that will eventually result in a contract.
Or, alternatively, you may be planning an action with your sibling. You may be doing business with your brother, or working on a special goal, such as to buy a house with your sister. Or, your siblings may want to throw a party for a family member with your sister. This emphasis would be noticeable after the new moon arrives September 19, a time when you will have half the solar system glowing in your third house. Saturn will be in hard angle to the new moon, so pace yourself, for your to-do list will be long, detailed, and strenuous. As always, be good to yourself.
