September is a month when many people feel energized and ready to tackle big projects. Your outlook is somewhat different, and is suggesting you take a slow and easy entry into the new season. You seem to have had a busy July, and so why not extend your relaxation time just a bit, into the first half of September?
In the first week, by the time you get to the full moon in Pisces 14 degrees, September 5, you will be finishing up a work project or personal task that you had to get done no later than September 8. After you get all wrapped up and finished, you’ll feel a sense of relief. Take a moment to catch your breath. Neptune will be conjunct the full moon, so make sure you are clear about what is required of you and the best way to get it done. On the other hand, if the project involves creativity, then Neptune will inspire you to come up with imaginative solutions, for Neptune is the planet that defends the arts.
At the same time, Saturn will be in hard angle to the full moon, so the task may seem difficult at times and include a written report or manuscript, or require that you negotiate a contact, make an important sale, or put finishing touches on a new app or software release. If so, this part of your job will be strenuous, but will give you an enormous amount of pride when you finish it.
Let’s backtrack a moment, to Friday, September 1, and Saturday, September 2, when Mars will be at an ideal angle to Uranus. This day may be filled with surprise and link your friends, your spouse, or established partner and you to one great formula for fun. You may be invited to a party or barbeque and if so, you should go.
Speaking of friends, watch September 3 and September 4 when Mars will reach 29 degrees of Leo, the exact degree of the total solar eclipse last month on August 21. If you did not see evidence about just how much a friend cares about you, or what a difference you are making to a humanitarian / charity project, you may hear news on one of these two dates.
When Mars or Saturn moves over the same degree of a recent eclipse, it is considered a major astrological event to note. Saturn is too far out of range to be considered, but Mars is about to fly straight over these degrees on September 3 and 4. Keep your antenna up to see what happens, both in your life and on the world stage. If you are born at the end of your sign, near October 18-22, you should notice something happening (or you did last month, at the solar eclipse).
Your eleventh house, which will be so lit up on these days, rules not only friendships and humanitarian activities but also your hopes and wishes. A dream you’ve long held in your heart may now come to you. If you were born near the end of Libra, on October 20-21, you were are most likely to benefit from the August 21 eclipse or from the days on September 2 and 3.
Mercury was retrograde last month, and so Mercury brought confusion, a need to backtrack, and some haywire chaos and confusion. Now Mercury will go direct on September 5, giving you a clear road ahead. Soon you can start to initiate important ventures. You can begin to sign contracts now, but give September 5 a few days of space between September 5 and the date you choose.
My favorite date for you to sign papers will be September 15, because your ruler, Venus will in ideal angle to Jupiter, giver of gifts and luck, now in Libra. What a fortunate day for you to use for any important initiation!
You can now go shopping for a new smart phone (alert – Apple will come out with version 8 next month), a computer, tablet and other electronics, appliances, or a car that you might need to buy.
Another theme that will emerge important for you in September has to do with caring tenderly for your health. At the full moon September 5 in Pisces, you may find that a test result may come back as inconclusive or wrong, making a diagnosis impossible. You may have to redo a test, and if so, be cheerful about it – Neptune is fogging things for everyone at that time, so take news with a shrug and a smile. If our doctor doesn’t think the test result is off, and you do, listen to your intuition and redo it.
The new moon of September 19 will also be the time to schedule your annual medical exam, go in to have your eyes checked, and see the dentist. Add any number of routine tests you know you should do but until now you have not had the time to do.
If you need a medical procedure or surgery done, you might schedule it for the last half of this month. After September 19, you will have Mars, Mercury, the Sun, and new moon Sun in your twelfth house of confinement, ruling hospitals, physical therapy centers, rehab centers, and the like. If you want a second opinion, go, for you might want to have the procedure now, without putting it off any longer.
The twelfth house is also considered the house of the subconscious mind, so if you have been troubled by any private problem that you would like to talk over with a trained professional therapist, this would be the ideal time to start. A new moon opens a new road ahead and so if you act quickly after it arrives on September 19, you would be in sync with the key cycles of the universe.
Many people struggle with opioid addiction all over the world, and if that includes you, you can get help, as doctors better understand this unfortunate condition and can help you heal and recover. If painkillers have afflicted you, it is important to know you are not alone, and you have not been forgotten. This month you will see the truth of this as you reach out for help, for someone will surely take your hand and help you across the rickety bridge to a better place.
Your creativity is also found in the twelfth house, which after September 20 will be crowded with a group of heavenly bodies in Virgo. Creativity stems from deep in your subconscious, and so it would not surprise me if you will report getting flashes of insight and ideas.
The twelfth house is also the place of solitude, so this month, withdraw from social activity and concentrate on a creative project dear to your heart. You might write poetry or a short story, and work on a screenplay. You might want to write or play music, paint, take photographs or films, do fashion design, or experiment with recipes. If you love working with wood and do carpentry, do that. Treat yourself to a setting that is quiet, withdrawn, and where you are unlikely to run into anyone you know. Your withdrawal for a short time will be good for you.
When you are back, while you are thinking about your mind, body, and spirit, you might want to choose a new sport or different kinds of classes at the gym. You may want to treat yourself to a package of training sessions. This month will be about giving yourself a bit of “me time.” I know you have many responsibilities, but if you can take some time alone, you will find the solitude there nourishing and regenerating.
Your life has been dialed up to loud, with a cacophony of voices needing your attention, but in late September, see if you can unplug and let go, if only a few hours.
Venus will be very active this month, so in terms of romance, you could enjoy several memorable moments that will stand out. Your best period will come while Venus is in fire-sign Leo, September 1 through September 18, to leave the following day. You are an air sign, and so fire-sign Leo blends perfectly with your Sun sign. Here are a two days to watch:
First, on September 12, Saturn will contact Venus in Leo in fire-sign Sagittarius. You may have dinner with your sweetheart on this day and after, get a good sense of where your relationship is heading. If you make a promise this day, it will be in place a long time – Saturn will make it so.
Your very best weekend will be September 15 (Friday) through September 17 (Sunday). On September 15, you have your best day of the month, when fun-loving Venus will align with Jupiter in Libra, a stellar day that might involve your friends. If you travel or get invited to a party, you will have fun. Afterward, you and your partner will be in a very romantic, affectionate mood.
That same weekend, on September 17, Venus and Uranus will bring surprise and a bushel of unexpected pleasures. The lovely vibrations of both days will overlap (as all aspects have an aura of plus or minus one day), adding up to quite an unforgettable weekend. Plan something special!
After this, Venus will move to Virgo and join the many happy planets there. It’s time to withdraw, rest, and give your life soothing rest and balance.
You are currently wearing the celestial crown, favored above all others. Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, is still in Libra in your first house, ruling your deepest desires. It has taken Jupiter twelve years to get to Libra, but by next month, October 10, Jupiter will be packing his bags to get ready to leave your sign to enter Scorpio. Jupiter will not return to Libra until 2028. While you will continue to have plenty of good fortune in the intervening years, this month is outstandingly special, and you should take advantage of the golden vibrations at play now, before they fade next month.
You will find that with Jupiter in Libra, VIPs will pay special attention to you now, so if there is a higher-up that you still need to see, make that appointment immediately. If a friend has been promising to make an introduction for you – professionally or socially – urge your friend to make that meeting happen in September, and the sooner, the better. Mercury was retrograde last month from August 12, but will go direct on September 5, so the beat will pick up after that. With a faster tempo, you’ll get more done in half the time.
You are about to move into a remarkable financially generous period. Most of the gains you will see will relate directly to seeds you planted in the past twelve months, from last year, September 9, 2016, when Jupiter first entered Libra to next month, October 10, 2017, the date Jupiter will leave Libra. Keep presenting your ideas this month, dear Libra, while you are the apple of Jupiter’s eye
Now let’s turn to your outlook for fun and love. Your happiest days will also come in the first half of the month. Venus will brilliantly light your eleventh house of friends / events / new faces until September 19. During that time, you may want to volunteer for a charity or humanitarian project, or to help elect a political candidate. During your work within groups, you may be surprised to discover how much fun it is to meet people who share your passions. With Venus in Leo, a fire sign that blends perfectly with your air-sign element, you may meet a romantic interest during this fertile time for love.
Put a gold star on September 2, when Mars and Uranus, planet of surprise, will be in ideal sync. If you are attached, your partner will blend beautifully with your friends – it’s an ideal day for giving or attending a barbeque, picnic, or party.
The weekend that spans Friday, September 15 to Sunday, September 17 will be spectacular for romance. First, on Friday, September 15, Venus in Leo will be in dazzling angle to Jupiter in Libra. September 15 may be your favorite day of the month. It will be followed by another dazzler, Sunday, September 17, when Venus and Uranus will bring unexpected, out-of-the-blue fun. Mixing friends with your partner will work out well for a night out.
Travel will also be a great idea in September. Being away will give you time to relish the beauty of nature and to anticipate the good times to come.
As you get to the new moon, September 19, it will be a signal to slow down and catch your breath. Meditate about what you hope to achieve in the coming birthday year. The ancient astrologers always wrote about how important it is to examine your life and to design it to your own vision. You can now decide what elements you’d like to delete, and where to create room for new, possibly more satisfying activities and relationships. Most importantly, choose a dream to complete by this time next year.
The theme of health and healing is always strong when planets move through the twelfth house – precisely what you have now – so it’s an ideal time to have medical and dental exams. The twelfth house rules the subconscious, so focus on a habit you’d like to change or delete, if you know that behavior is harming you. Even if you have tried to give up this habit and have been disappointed with results in the past, you can recommit to that goal and see impressive progress now.
Reach out to a coach, physiatrist, or group therapist to get the support you need. If you need surgery you’ve put off and have a doctor with the experience to understand your condition, then make the appointment now so that you can begin your birthday year with a bright, clean slate.
