Venus Turns Direct
You ruling planet Venus turns direct as the month begins. Venus has been retrograde for the last six weeks since July 23rd, in Leo and your friendship and group sector. Venus turns direct on the 4th, so notice who comes into your life on or around this date.
What hidden themes emerge, what secrets come to light? If you’ve been ostracised from a friend or cut off from a group, Venus turning direct could help heal a rift and bring you and a third party close again. Love and friendship are linked when Venus is in Leo. Reach out to others and create strong connections in your life.
Also, consider how money and emotions are connected and where you may need to separate the two – there could be some bumps on the 17th & 29th. Think about your future and do whatever’s right for you financially. This is a positive month to make some key decisions that will help you feel more secure moving forward.
Plus, you could receive a gift or bonus. Or, perhaps you have some luck and good fortune around money and attract what you need into your life. The key dates are the 4th, 8th, 16th, 25th & 30th. Be open to the law of attraction and invite wealth and abundance in.
As September begins, the Sun is in earth sign Virgo where it remains until the 23rd. Traditionally, when the Sun is in this sector of your horoscope, it’s a time for rest and retreat. Inner work is recommended and you may be caring for yourself or other people more than usual.
Or, perhaps you’re preparing for a new stage in life and this is causing you some worry or concern, because you’re heading into the unknown. If you find you’re overly anxious, it’s wise to find a way to stop and slow down, to quieten your mind. Nature is one way of restoring calm and balance, ensuring you take regular exercise or you head out into the countryside. You may crave more time alone than usual.
Alternatively, you might be studying this month or be busy with research or planning. Virgo is one of the studious signs of the zodiac ruled by Mercury, the planet of the mind. You could be squirrelled away getting ready for a busy project or being out in the public eye.
Mercury Turns Direct
Mercury’s in Virgo throughout September. And, on the 15th, talk planet Mercury turns direct, a significant turning point. It’s been a chaotic few weeks, since Mercury turned retrograde on August 23rd.
Listen out for news or information that comes to light once Mercury’s back up to speed. You may find it easier to make an important decision, once Mercury has the green light to move forward and pick up speed. You may be able to finalise a matter that’s linked to your past and where you come from.
Mercury turning direct could coincide with a fresh start in your life as this is the same date as the New Moon in Virgo, the 15th. Turn to a fresh page, start journalling and set your intentions regarding your next steps.
Trust your intuition and natural instincts. Conserve your energy and do what feels right. The more grounded and balanced you are in September, the more your life will feel in flow.
The Sun’s move into Libra on the 23rd is always a step in the right direction for you. This coincides with the Equinox and a change of a season. The Sun represents vitality and energy. It can feel like a confidence boost when you have the Sun lighting up your star sign.
When you have planets in your star sign, the focus is on you. It’s an ideal time in the year to consider your personal goals and aims, where you’re heading and why. This is the mid-point through the zodiac year, six months since the Sun entered Aries on March 20th.
Therefore, consider how far you’ve come, what you’ve achieved and what you’re ready to let go of. Think of September as a key month to balance those Libra scales, so you feel more in harmony and in flow with life rather than constantly battling or taking on too much.
The Sun isn’t the only planetary body in Libra. Action planet Mars is here throughout September and this can feel full on. If you’re a typical Libra, you’re sociable and friendly and sometimes you find it hard to say no to invitations or requests.
With strong planets in your star sign this month, you would expect your social circle to widen even further. Therefore, take good care of yourself and prioritise your needs, especially if your life is busy. Certainly, it’s an ideal time to cultivate friends and alliances in high places. If you’re keen to be part of the ‘in crowd’, whatever this means for you personally, this is your month to leap in.
The Full Moon on the 29th could be part of this as it cuts across the Aries/Libra axis of the zodiac. Full Moons can be dramatic, a time when emotions are heightened. Yet, they’re wonderful for celebration and enjoying yourself fully.
This could be a pivotal Full Moon for your one-to-one relationships. The light of the Moon is at its brightest during the Full Moon phase and you often see your situation with clarity. If a relationship’s going to work well for you, you need a best friend as well as a lover. This Full Moon feels promising for your close connections.
