Earth Sign Energy
Earth sign energy is strong throughout September and this isn’t always comfortable for you. This turns your attention towards the serious business of life, getting things organised and ship-shape. Sorting out your finances and ensuring that documents and contracts are up-to-date.
Money matters may dominate now as the Sun is in Virgo and your joint finance sector until the 22nd. Plus, the Full Moon on the 2nd highlights the financial axis of your horoscope. And, the New Moon on the 17th lights up your shared resource sector.
Use the light and clarity of the Full Moon to make key decisions around money. Initiate new ideas and money-making projects during the New Moon phase. Ensure you dot the ‘i’s and cross the ‘t’s and don’t leave important matters unattended to.
Yet, your mind will probably be elsewhere. This is because talk planet Mercury is in Libra, a fellow air sign from the 5th to the 27th. Libra rules travel and study in your horoscope, new experiences and foreign connections.
You might be busy learning a language or talking with people abroad. You may be keen to learn something new or head off on a big adventure. Once the Sun enters Libra on the 22nd, you need to find something in your life that gives you a deeper sense of meaning than the everyday.
This is likely to be a push-pull scenario at times and you can’t count out plans needing to change and fast.
Also, you have action planet Mars in Aries meaning that everyday life is going to be busy and you probably have a lot to sort out and organise. It’s worth cracking on with plans and ideas and getting a good time management system in place.
Keep focused on what you need to do throughout September and extend your network. Aries rules siblings and neighbours in your horoscope and your local community. Reach out to others and join forces to make life easier for everyone.
On September 9th, Mars turns retrograde and will be on go slow until November 13th. This is the time to take a step back, rework your strategy and consider what next.
Don’t feel you have to rush into anything new, even if you feel angry about current events or the world situation. Mars in Aries stirs your activist tendencies but use the timing of Mars to know when to attack and when to defend. Gather more information while Mars is in retreat. Or, persuade more people to join you in a worthwhile cause ready to take action later in the year.
There is another factor involved, the fact that Saturn, your co-ruler, is square to Mars throughout September. They were exact on August 24th and clash again on September 29th, the day that Saturn turns direct.
This combination can give you grit and determination to keep moving towards your long-term goals. Yet, its flip side is that you feel trapped or exhausted by events. Choose your battles carefully and take good care of you.
This whole combination connects you to your past and what’s been and gone. You might decide to take a trip down memory lane or feel sentimental about the past.
Go where your emotions lead you and don’t run away from them. If you’re prepared to feel deeply, this is a time when you can learn a lot about yourself.
Also, there’s a sense that you are needing to let go and move on. Any process of grieving or personal development takes time. Sometimes, it’s only once you’ve shed a skin on the inside that you can take the new you out into the world. If you need to take the pace slow in September, make it so.
Jupiter & Venus
Jupiter switches direction this month, on the 13th, four days after a gorgeous Sun-Jupiter trine aspect on the 9th. This combination promises good fortune, also freedom and a chance to let go of the ties that bind. This is a significant year of preparation for you and you can’t run before you walk.
Remember that Jupiter will move into your star sign Aquarius in December 2020 for the first time in twelve years. Do the ground work now, do your research and preparation ready to spread your wings and fly in a few months time.
And finally, you do have lovely Venus in Leo and your relationship sector from the 6th onwards. This is a gorgeous time to embrace love, to be there for someone special or to lean on a significant other.
There is a Venus-Uranus clash on the 15th which feels unpredictable but do your best to keep the right people on your side.
