Gemini (21 May – 21 June)
Your ruling planet Mercury is moving swiftly through the zodiac. It starts the month in fire sign Leo where it remains until the 6th. This is a lovely period for making new friends or dating, as the planet of relating, Venus, is in Libra and your romance sector until the 9th.
Mercury then moves on into earth sign Virgo, where it remains from the 6th to the 21st. Virgo rules your home and family, your past and where you come from. Mercury is part of a Grand Earth Trine on September 7th that highlights these areas of your life, also money, legacy and karma.
If you’re involved in any kind of property deal or major financial transaction, jump to it from the 6th to the 9th. There are different reasons for this. Firstly, action planet Mars is in Capricorn and your joint finance sector until the 11th. Mars is completing what it started early in May of this year.
Also, on the 6th, another planet turns direct, again in Capricorn, and this planet is Saturn. Think practicalities and look at how you can nail down a deal that benefits you and the ones you love.
Being a Sun Gemini, you don’t like to feel tied down but with so much strong planetary energy in Capricorn, you have to consider the bigger picture and your financial and emotional security. This is where a ‘get real’ attitude pays off.
As the New Moon on the 9th also falls in earth sign Virgo, the theme of safety and security is repeated. Earth signs want and need strong foundations on which to build. Get these areas of your life working well while the planets are on your side.
Work too is part of the picture with expansive Jupiter in Scorpio and your work sector. This is about good organisation and prioritising your work and routine, your lifestyle and your health. Events around the 11th/12th could prove significant in this respect.
This may be about leaving behind a legacy or thinking about what you pass on and what generations before you leave behind. Issues around debt and inheritance are foreground.
The planet of relating, Venus, also enters Scorpio on the 9th and remains here for most of the next four months. This is about your work connections and being part of a team. Scorpio can be a secretive sign but together you’re stronger. You can successfully use psychology to gain a better understanding of your work relations, your clients or colleagues.
At times during September, you will need to deal with serious or even heavy issues. That’s not to say this is the whole story thankfully and a predominance of planets in air signs keeps things light.
Action planet Mars moves back into Aquarius on the 11th where it remains until November 15th. Aquarius is your travel and study sector, encouraging you to expand your horizons and stretch your wings. If an adventure or course was put on hold earlier in the year, here’s your opportunity to try again.
Plus, your ruler Mercury enters air sign Libra on the 22nd followed by the Sun on the 23rd heralding the Equinox. Libra represents all the things you love in life, whether you’re enjoying romance, time with your children, a creative project or social events.
The last week of the month is ideal for arranging a holiday or trip with children or grandchildren or jetting off with someone you love. The Full Moon on the 25th highlights entertainment and social get-togethers.
Admittedly, you may have to be strict with yourself when it comes to spending but you can still have fun, even if it is on a tighter budget.
