In September, the Sun is at the peak of your horoscope in the star sign, Virgo, where it remains until the 22nd. Virgo rules your career and vocation, your future and where you’re heading in life.
This is a positive period to focus on your next steps, whether you’re applying for a job or looking for promotion.
Virgo is one of the earth signs so be organised and thorough, set up new systems and be diligent in whatever you’re involved in. The Full Moon on the 2nd lights up the foundations of your horoscope, highlighting the work/life balance.
This is a good date to decide where your priorities lie and Full Moons are ideal for trusting your intuition when it comes to the big areas of life, like work and family.
The mid-month period looks great for you for a couple of reasons. Firstly, your planet Jupiter turns direct on the 13th, four days after a stunning Sun-Jupiter trine aspect on the 9th. As the Sun and Jupiter light up the work and money sectors of your horoscope, this promises good fortune.
When Jupiter’s active, it’s an ideal time to take risks, speculate and play big. You may find that self-belief kicks in and you have a clear vision of what next.
Note that Jupiter’s also the planet of freedom and money’s one area where you might have felt trapped for much of the year. Jupiter often brings a solution at the 11th hour, so stay faithful that your fortunes will get a nod in the right direction.
Four days after Jupiter turns direct, there’s a New Moon in Virgo on the 17th, a great date for taking the initiative and being pro-active when it comes to your career and future path. Apply for a job or send in a letter of resignation, whatever works for you personally.
You may find that doors open to you this month, especially when you have the right people on your side. Take any opportunity you can to impress mid-month. Your current stars suggest that you could make a big splash, so make the most of it.
Another significant planetary factor is what’s happening with Mars, the planet of passion. Mars is also in a fire sign, Aries which rules all the good things in life in your horoscope. This includes romance, children & pregnancy, creative projects, entertainment and fun.
Wherever you find Mars is where you have drive and ambition so you’ll be more keen to line up social events and get-togethers and pursue pleasure. You might be obsessed with a hobby or past-time that takes you away from the more serious area of life.
Yet, on September 9th, Mars turns retrograde, i.e. will be on go slow until November 13th. This doesn’t mean that everything comes to a halt. In fact, you may find you dive deeper into pleasure, exploring your sexuality or trying for a baby.
It is, however, a good time to rework your strategy and take a step back rather than keep pushing forwards. This may be true for you, when it comes to romance or a new relationship.
Mars is great for action but you need Mars retrograde in order to take a pause. This might flag up a way you can save money too by stopping an expense or out-going.
Love & Friendship
Love and friendship are linked this month as Mercury is in Libra and your friendship sector from the 5th to the 27th and Mercury is your partner planet.
Don’t feel that you have to rush into a new relationship. Instead, take your time and get to know one another well before making a commitment. The lovers of the heavens, Venus and Mars, clash on the 4th but this is more likely a lover’s tiff than anything major.
Yet, this month’s astrology flags up debate, discussion and sometimes all-out arguments. The period from the 17th to the 24th looks the liveliest. If anything, you’ll make your opinion known and this could unsettle some of your friendships.
Try to keep close tabs on your anger or strong emotions and channel them constructively. It may be a good month to get away for a while. And, for some of you, love is the reason to travel.
