Aquarius Horoscope For September 2017
As the month begins, you may still be mulling over events that took place last month. The eclipses occurred then, and the first one, a full moon lunar eclipse in Aquarius, 15 degrees, brought something dearly important to you to fullness. If your birthday falls on February 3, or close to that date, you likely found that eclipse to be noticeable in your life.
The second eclipse, a total eclipse of the Sun, came next, in Leo 29 degrees on August 21, and focused on your house of marriage and business partnerships. You usually prefer to be alone, independent and unshackled by binding commitments, but now, you seem to be seeing that you might get closer to a goal if you team up with the right person. Of course, part of this trend covers marriage, and if you want children, that is the traditional route to capture that dream.
The new moon solar eclipse of August 21 was very friendly to your sign, and if your birthday falls near the end of Aquarius, say, on February 17 or 18, or near those dates, you would have noticed developments arising in your life regarding partnerships. Eclipses have a way of shining truth into situations, so you may have become engaged when you found that your partner truly loves you and that you love your partner, and that the thought of going through life without the person you love is too painful to imagine. A realization like this could make the decision clear – it is time to wed. You did get clarity about your relationship last month, and will get more information this month.
Alternatively, in business, you may have found the perfect person to help you get ahead, whether that be a business partner, manager, publicist, social media manager, director of advertising sales, web designer, advertising director, head of sales – there are any number of people you can collaborate with in business, and perhaps you have found the one person who will be just right for what you are trying to achieve.
August 21 was a friendly new moon solar eclipse, so no matter how it worked out in your life, I feel it would work to benefit you. Some Aquarius readers wrote to me on Twitter (@astrologyzone) and Facebook (Susan Miller) to say that they broke up and that it was not a good eclipse for them. (Others said it was the best day of their lives.) It is true that that eclipse opened a new road in the area of partnership, but I cannot see all in your chart, and you may have been born with a certain aspect that detracted from that eclipse. Or, more likely, it may be that the breakup was the best thing for you.
The job of an eclipse is to get progress. It sweeps away all that is no longer of future value to you, and to that end, an eclipse can sweep out a relationship that is basically weak. This opens the basket of your life so that you can find someone better suited to you, with goals that match your own.
There is no doubt that eclipses, if they hit your birthday Sun, rising sign, moon, or other planet in your chart by degree (within five degrees), they are the most dramatic tool the universe uses to create progress and to pull you out of stagnant situations that made you feel stuck. I always say, before you pronounce an eclipse good or bad, wait a while. All eclipses have a second act, but you can’t see the big picture at the time of the eclipse, for much cosmic dust is kicked up. Let things settle before you decide how things are going, for more will be revealed to you.
Now let’s get started looking at September.
The first week of September will start with a bang. Mars, still in your partnership sector, will receive a golden beam from Uranus, your ruling planet, and the planet of surprise. Uranus is in your house of short distance travel, so you may be taking a little trip that in a million years you did not expect to take. If you do, it would be serendipitous and full of fun.
September 3 and September 4 are very important days for you to watch. Mars, the action planet, will hit the precise place in the sky that the eclipse occurred. I always think of the Sun at eclipse time as burning a little hole in the sky, and then Mars will race over that same spot, breaking open the scab. When Mars touches the exact degree of that eclipse, you will likely hear news about a partnership situation, both in your own personal life (especially if you were born near February 17) and also other big news on the world stage, via TV and other media.
The full moon arrives next, September 5, setting off a trend concerning money. Money will come in, and money will go out. This is the same day that Mercury goes direct, so from this day onward, you will see a blast of energy come through your window. Phones will be ringing, and you will have people to see and places to go.
This new moon will be in hard angle to Saturn, however, so you may feel some strain to meet all your financial obligations. Your solar chart is puzzling me as I write this, because I see that Saturn is in your friendship house, and I wonder if you are feeling a cash flow difficulty because you are helping a friend in need, or an entire group of people, such as the victims in the Houston flood, who need donations of food and other necessities so dearly. The eleventh house where Saturn is based also rules hopes and wishes, so you may put off buying something you want, but if so, that will only be a temporary situation.
Further complicating matters at the full moon is Neptune, spreading his fog over everything in its path. Neptune is not always a bad guy (I actually like him because he is the planet of the arts and creativity and also engenders deep compassion), but when found opposing the Sun and conjunct the full moon in two financial houses of your chart, I wonder if you will find that information is missing that you need but that someone forgot to give you or has withheld from you on purpose. This person can be someone in a court case, or a soon-to-be-ex in a divorce, or a business partner. Listen to your instinct, and get to the bottom of any numbers that seem off to you. The full moon, which always shines a big light, will help you get it.
Before you climb on your desk and scream “I knew it! My business partner is a scoundrel! I knew I could never trust him! Oh no! I am doomed!” I don’t want you to necessarily feel that way. There are different ways Neptune’s role could be interpreted. For example, if you are purchasing artwork, commissioning music from an artist, or paying a designer to do your website, this might explain Neptune’s presence, and in that case, this would be a positive place for Neptune to be.
You do seem to be very focused on merging energies with someone, so if that’s true for you, in love or business, it would not hurt to do a credit check on that person. If you are getting married, of course, you wouldn’t want to take on your partner’s debts that you don’t know about, say, if you should find any big ones, like for student loans. In business, with this month’s aspects, see if you can you can ask for an advance to cover half of the project’s expenses and fees in advance. If a client goes bankrupt, you don’t want to be left holding the bag. You do have help from Pluto, now situated in a behind-the-scenes location in the chart, suggesting there are laws that are in place that can help you, but only if you have the presence of mind to do a contract to cover yourself ahead of time.
Your financial outlook will improve after September 21, the new moon in Virgo 27 degrees, which will be accompanied by the majestic moon’s large entourage, including the Sun, Mercury, Mars, and Venus. That is an enormous amount of energy to be centered in one part of the horoscope, so this says to me that you will be very determined to find new source of income and by George, you won’t stop until you do. It is true that with Mars in your house of credit / taxes / loans, you will have higher than usual expenses from September 5 to October 22. High expenses will make you more creative about finding the funds you need. Saturn will again be at hard angle to the new moon, so you might have to delay a purchase for a while until your finances balance out.
I am not happy that Neptune is again playing a role, this time opposing Mercury, the ruler of Virgo (the place all the planets are based), so I feel you have to avoid signing contracts anywhere near this new moon, September 21. If you can, try to get the paperwork delivered BEFORE the new moon arrives, and consider signing September 15, your best moment. I also like September 12 very much.
Venus and Mars will be orbiting very close in your house of other people’s money at the very end of the month, to conjoin on October 4. I feel these two lovebirds may bring you news of a gift or money coming to you on September 28 or 29. Let’s hope that happens!
When Pluto goes direct on September 28, you will see your career start to show much bigger progress. I like the new moon of November 18 in your house of fame and honors. Start to get your ducks in a row and be ready to interview after November 18 when a juicy professional opportunity is likely to come to you.
Romantically, this month (and in August) more than any other time in recent memory, how things will go depend heavily on how your relationship has been going all along in recent months. Your best weekend will be the one that spans Friday, September 15 to Sunday, September 17. It would be ideal for taking a direct trip to a close-by setting that offers sports, sunshine, and a bit of adventure (make it a place neither of you have ever been). You and your partner will be in the mood for luxury, so choose to splurge a little on a hotel for your one or two night stay, and have dinner in a cozy romantic restaurant.
If you are single, you will have far better aspects next month, after Venus enters Libra, an air sign like yours. Venus will remain there until November 7. Mars will be in Libra too, from October 22 to December 9. This is a fantastic coincidence, because Venus with Mars is considered the cosmic lovers, and their job is to set off sparks of love. Be patient – the best is yet to come.
You have been through a remarkable month last month, for two friendly eclipses, one in Aquarius (August 7) and one in your opposite sign of Leo (August 21), appeared and began rearranging your life. The eclipse may even have given you a new appreciation for who you are and what you need in life to be happy. The closer your birthday falls near February 3 or 18, the more dramatic the effect of those eclipses will be. If your birthday is not near those dates, more eclipses are due in January / February and July / August 2018, and at least one or more of those will call out your name.
This series of eclipses are on a mission to get you to move out of your comfort zone and to tackle plans dear to you that you assumed would wait several more years. Eclipses have a way of showing you that you have no reason to wait – it’s a joyous discovery and will usher in quite an exciting period. Eclipses in your own sign will have you viewing yourself in a new light, and as a result, you may now change your appearance from hairstyle to the type of clothes you wear. This would be true for all Aquarians, male and female.
A new season is soon to begin, and a new trend will be blowing through your window. You are not a materialistic soul, but this month money management will consume you. Your first sign that this is true will come at the full moon in Pisces on September 5. If you interviewed for a new job, or had asked or a raise some time ago, you are likely to hear the answer back at the time of the full moon, September 5, plus four days. Alternatively, this full moon may simply be a time when money comes in and goes out, where you pay off obligations and feel better for being in control.
Neptune will be conjunct the full moon, so certain details may be missing or obscured. The full moon of September 5 (plus or minus five days) is not the time to sign documents, for Neptune is placing a veil over all your financial matters, so you won’t see all the facts.
The exception to this rule may be if you work in a creative field, or are part of the support group to the creative people, say, as a producer, or in your work as an agent or manager. Neptune is closely tied to the arts and works to further the proliferation of all forms. In that case, Neptune’s presence may indicate you are about to make a large financial deal.
Pluto will be quite friendly to this full moon, underscoring the possibility that no matter what you do for a living, despite the fact that paperwork or the deal points may need to be looked at closely, you can do well. Your favor would come from a powerful VIP behind the scenes, suggesting that person may remain anonymous.
Mercury has been retrograde in your second house of earned income since August 12, but is due to go direct on September 5. Whenever a planet goes direct, especially Mercury, it will be too unstable to take action instantly, so be patient. Allow as many days’ space from September 5 as is reasonable – the more you can wait, the better. Neptune’s position to this full moon is making this a dangerous time to sign any deals, especially financial ones, for later you may wish you had seen certain clauses that come back to bite you.
The theme of financial management will only ratchet up another notch at the new moon September 19, when a total of five, stunning heavenly bodies will fill your eighth house of other people’s money. Your attention will focus on a different type of funds: bank loans, mortgage, child support, insurance of all kinds, venture capital, student loans, credit cards, savings and retirement accounts, taxes and legal financial settlements, including those that divide property in a divorce.
Later this month, you may be checking your credit rating and ascertaining that no one has tried to sully your good name by making unauthorized activity on your accounts. Saturn will be in hard angle to all the planets in Virgo, so you will need to remain realistic and practical – wishful thinking won’t have a place in your talks. Still, remain optimistic, for Pluto will be your staunch supporter again, and you may uncover funds designated for you that you didn’t even know existed. All kinds of interesting information may surface in the days and weeks following this new moon. The point is, you will take full control of your financial future, and as a result, will soon come out all the richer for having focused on it.
