The start of September brings the first of two major turning points this month. On the 4th, the planet of love and relating Venus turns direct in Leo, where she’s been retrograde for the last six weeks, since July 23rd.
Leo is one of the hidden sectors of your horoscope. Therefore, you may have been involved in an affair or unrequited love. Or, perhaps you’ve been learning to love yourself more fully. It’s been a time for secrets and inner work and Venus remains in Leo throughout September. There may still be some bumps along the way, perhaps on the 17th or 29th.
Yet, listen out for insights on or around the 4th. What you discover could mean that you change your mind about your next steps. It’s a top month for travel and discovery. Although, the timing may not be right for one trip, course or adventure. Perhaps, you’re looking ahead instead and making plans for 2024.
Star Of The Show
This is Virgo season when you have the Sun in your star sign Virgo until the 23rd. The Sun shines brightly and the Sun in your star sign often boosts your confidence, vitality and energy levels.
You’re the one in the limelight, so use this opportunity well. Perhaps, you’re winning over and schmoozing other people. You might be more popular or attractive to other people. Alternatively, you may be discovering where you can be of help and service to others.
Everyone may want a piece of you, in a good way. You’re either popular, in demand or the person everyone needs. If you want to boost your image and profile or further a personal goal or aim, the second half of September is the time to make it happen. And here’s the reason why.
Mercury Turns Direct
Mercury is your ruling planet and the fact that Mercury turns direct in your star sign Virgo has to be significant. This takes place on the 15th after three weeks of Mercury retrograde’ miscommunication. Mercury started its retrograde phase on August 23rd and it’s been unusually chaotic ever since.
Virgo is the star sign that rules your personal goals and aims, your image and profile. Therefore, the cosmic green light is turned firmly towards you, a time to speak up, put yourself first and get back on track with your personal projects. As Mercury turning direct coincides with a New Moon in Virgo on the 15th, even more so.
A New Moon is a symbol of new beginnings and an ideal time to start over, launch a project, do something new and exciting. Set your intentions on this New Moon not only for the month ahead but your year ahead as well. A New Moon in Virgo only comes around once every 12 months.
This could be a creative time for you when you feel extra lucky. If so, trust your luck and be open to new opportunities and good fortune. The key dates to take a leap of faith and trust your instincts are the 4th, 8th, 16th, 25th & 30th.
Balancing The Books
Money is under the cosmic spotlight in September and it’s a good month to crack on with money-making ideas or plans. This is because action planet Mars is in Libra throughout September. Plus, on the 23rd, the Sun’s move into Libra heralds the Equinox and a change of season.
In your horoscope, Libra rules money, assets, possessions, your values and self-worth. And, as Libra is the star sign of balance, it’s a top month to balance the books and pay attention to your accounts, your earnings and your outgoings. Weigh up what’s of value in your life, consider your self-worth and ensure you’re paid what you deserve.
Invest wisely during this period, look after the ones you love and make good money moves. At the end of the month, there could be a revelation regarding finances, values or your sense of self-worth. Perhaps, you’re back on track or ready to take a big risk.
This is because there’s a Full Moon cutting across the Aries/Libra axis of the zodiac on the 29th. Everything is amplified during this Full Moon and your planet Mercury is especially lively. Trust your intuition during the Full Moon around money and finances. Decide whether you’re ready to take a big leap, invest or spend your money on something or someone you love.
