Earth signs dominate this month which is great news for you as your star sign, Capricorn, is one of them. You’re in your element when you’re taking steady steps towards your long-term goals.
Your zodiac symbol, the mountain goat, is a great ambassador for your sign of Capricorn. Resilient and determined, it leaps its way from rock to rock until it conquers the mountain.
Long Term Goals
It’s not a bad idea to have a similar mentality to the sturdy mountain goat this month because long-term goals are definitely foreground for you. This is because of the plethora of planets in Virgo and the sector of your horoscope which rules travel, study and the bigger picture.
This combination is full on for the first two weeks of September. If you’re travelling or studying during this period, you’re in tune with your stars. It’s also a good time to be looking ahead to next year’s holiday or a trip away. If you’re a typical Capricorn, you like to know what’s happening when, sometimes more than one year in advance.
The inner planets and the Sun also team up with your ruling planet, Saturn, during the first two weeks. The key dates to note are the 1st, 5th, 6th and 9th. This is great for finalising plans and bringing your best self to your projects, plans and ideas. You can make the right decisions or take on a leading role. This might mean you’re planning a big trip for a group of friends or leading a course of study.
Pushing Back Boundaries
There’s real excitement and buzz during this period, thanks to the slower-moving planets, Jupiter and Neptune. On the 21st, these two planets make their third and final encounter during 2019. They first came together in January, then again in June and this is their last hoorah.
Jupiter is in Sagittarius and the most inner sector of your horoscope. For some of you Capricorns, this could be about your spiritual path, your beliefs or your religion. Whereas, Neptune is in Pisces and the sector of your horoscope which rules communication, your community, your ideas.
Put the two together and this is a questioning combination for you. You’re willing to explore new dimensions, to go beyond the everyday and push back the boundaries of reality. Plus, in the first two weeks of the month, Jupiter and Neptune team up with all the planets in Virgo.
This is a heady combination that’s encouraging you to take a big leap, follow your dreams or find your calling. This might be linked to publishing, the media or the Law. It’s the time to have hope and faith in what you’re involved in, whether this is to do with your work and career or a project that helps your community in some way.
The key to your success is to be true to your earth sign roots. Don’t take on too much, don’t get overly carried away and keep your feet on the ground. Deal with the practicalities at the same time as nurturing your dreams. Ensure you can deliver what you promise.
This planetary activity peaks at the Full Moon on the 14th, which does feel emotional this month. You may be worn out and ready for a rest. You might be keen to leave behind the everyday and run off and escape somewhere different, to the sea or countryside. Either way, it’s a time to release and let go and shift gear. Moving forwards, you need a different pace.
One word of caution is to double check the facts of what you’re dealing with this month. Read the small print, ensure you have insurance or that your visa is going to arrive on time. Neptune is a seductive, elusive influence. Don’t let things slip and use your earthy intuition to decide who you can and can’t trust.
The 14th is the turning point because on this day, the social planets, Mercury and Venus, change star sign and enter Libra. Libra is one of the air signs, so logic and rationality return. It’s less about feeling your way forwards and more about working things out strategically.
Libra is your career and vocation sector, ruling your status and reputation. If you’re away on holiday the first two weeks of September, you’re wise to ensure you’re back at your desk or available from the 14th onwards.
Work your connections in the second half of the month as this is where you can make progress or get ahead of the rest of the pack. Then, when the Sun enters Libra on the 23rd, the day of the Equinox, you’ll be more than ready to maximise your chances.
Plus, five days later, there’s a New Moon in Libra on the 28th, an ideal date to send off a job application or ask for a promotion. New beginnings abound during the New Moon period.
Jupiter is also involved during the last week of September and this feels lucky for you, on the 24th and 28th, the day of the New Moon. You might hear good news via a third party; you may be celebrating a win for your partner or perhaps a gift comes your way.
The most important turning point of the month, however, involves your planet Saturn. Saturn has been retrograde since April 30th and on the 18th of this month, Saturn turns direct. Saturn has been in retreat moving alongside the karmic South Node, not always easy.
You may have been struggling during this period, especially if your birthday falls between January 4th to 11th. Or perhaps, you’ve been working through a challenging personal situation. You can be stuck in your comfort zone when you’re in South Node territory or find you revert to a bad habit or something it’s hard to let go of.
By the 28th, Saturn takes its leaves of the South Node and moves determinedly onwards. It doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve shaken off the fear you’ve been feeling but it does mean you know you’re ready to prove your commitment, your self-discipline, your resilient mountain goat nature. You can see the top of the mountain once again – onwards!
