Venus Turns Direct
There’s a significant turning point as September gets underway. On the 4th, the planet of love and relating Venus turns direct in your opposite star sign Leo. Venus has been retrograde, i.e. on go slow for six weeks since July 23rd.
If love has been quiet or you’ve been unsure what you want when it comes to love and relationships, you may start to see the way ahead more clearly. Perhaps, someone close gets back in touch with you. The 4th would be a positive date to reach out, whether you want to heal a rift or try again in a romantic context.
You’re not completely out of the woods, however, and issues around freedom or commitment could rear their head on or around the 17th & 29th. Try not to over-react or behave too impulsively. And, if you’re in a relationship, be aware that other people could be doing the same. Love gets a green light when Venus is back to direct motion but you’re wise to keep things steady rather than rushing ahead.
Shift Your Mindset
Up until the 23rd, the Sun is in the earth sign Virgo and one of the trickier sectors of your horoscope. On the one hand, this is about financial transactions and shared resources. On the other hand, it represents all that’s hidden, including fear and taboo subjects.
Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the planet of the mind, so take care that you don’t allow your mind to get out of control. If you’re going through a challenging time, take charge as best you can and do what you can to restore order. Write things down as journalling could be helpful. Or, make a list of the things that need to get done if you’re feeling overwhelmed.
Money fears are never easy. Do what you can to move away from an attitude of scarcity towards hope, faith and belief that things will turn out well in the end. It might help to be diligent about taking on healthy practices or ritual, including prayer, gratitude or exercises that help to shift your mindset.
As long as you do the numbers and deal with the facts, there’s no harm in increasing your levels of self-belief in whichever way you know best. Be open to luck and attracting abundance into your life, especially close to the 4th, 8th, 16th, 25th & 30th.
The strong earth sign activity this month could coincide with good money moves. You might be selling a property, for example, that creates more cash flow. Or, you join forces with family members to make your resources go further.
As Virgo is one of the earth signs, this could include harvesting food from an allotment or selling produce on a market stall. Certainly, it’s a good time to be resourceful and look at what you can create or make that benefits you or that you can sell on.
Mercury Turns Direct
Also this month, the planet of communication Mercury switches direction on the 15th, another significant turning point. Mercury turned retrograde on August 23rd and it’s been an unusually chaotic Mercury retrograde phase.
When Mercury turns direct, this often brings news or information to light. Mercury picks up speed in Virgo and your joint finance sector. Therefore, you may be involved in sorting out your finances, creating new systems or tidying up your financial situation.
As there’s a New Moon in Virgo on the same day as Mercury turns direct, the 15th, this is a powerful green light. You could receive the money you’ve been waiting for. Or, you hear about a new money-making opportunity.
Use the New Moon influence to set your intentions and draw up some new goals to secure your financial future. Ensure you’re getting the best rates for savings, debt or other financial assets.
Wide Open Spaces
Also this month, you may sense a big pull towards seeing the world or saving the world. This is because of the emphasis on the star sign Libra. In your horoscope, Libra rules travel and study, the bigger picture in life.
The Sun enters Libra on the 23rd, the day of the Equinox. You don’t have to wait until then, however, to get the travel or study bug. This is because action planet Mars is moving through Libra throughout September.
This planetary combination is dynamic and go-getting. You might choose to volunteer abroad or you’re travelling with your current job. Foreign connections are the theme, whether you immerse yourself in a new culture or work alongside people from different backgrounds and countries. Notice if any new invitations come your way and step out of your comfort zone. Expand your horizons.
On the 29th, there’s a Full Moon cutting across the Aries/Libra axis of the zodiac. Aries is a passionate fire sign that rules communication in your horoscope. The Full Moon is a positive time to make a key decision, perhaps around travel or study, culture or learning. You might be at a workshop or course during the Full Moon weekend.
Or, perhaps you’re abroad and liaising with people from different backgrounds or cultures to yourself. If you’re true to your star sign birthright, you are the humanitarian sign of the zodiac, a global citizen.
