Your ruling planet Mars is currently in Aries and the sector of your horoscope which rules your work and routine, your health and lifestyle. This suggests that September is potentially busy for you and at times full on.
Mars likes speed and fast action so bear this in mind moving forward, especially early in the month. This is not a time to procrastinate with your work goals and ideas. Instead, focus on your future, where you’re heading and make things happen.
However, Mars turns retrograde on September 9th and remains on go slow until November 13th. This is invariably a time when you have to slow down the pace or things don’t work out the way you expect them to.
You might find your plans are stalled. Or, perhaps you’re extra busy completing a project that takes over your life. Either way, it’s a different planetary energy that is no longer forward-moving. Instead, it feels more internal, going back over old ground or reworking your strategy.
As Mars is your ruling planet, there’s a possibility that you’re not in charge or not the one in control. If so, this will be a challenge for you and it may flag up a situation in your life that’s out of balance.
At the very least, you’ll know where you’re not happy and where you’re ready to shift and move on, even if you have to wait until the end of the year to do so.
Mars Square Saturn
Currently, Mars is square to Saturn in Capricorn, the planet of authority in your communication sector. These two planets perfected their square aspect on August 24th and they meet again on September 29th.
This is the date that Saturn shifts direction, except it leaves its retrograde phase where it’s been since May 2020.
Yes, you may encounter obstacles this month, especially if you’re up against authority. Yet, Saturn adds grit and determination to your ruling planet Mars. And, you may feel spurred on to do what’s right or what feels important to you.
This might be around finding your voice, challenging the status quo or confronting your own limitations, fear or doubt. Notice what happens on or around the 13th when there’s another key planet shifting direction, Jupiter. Jupiter turns direct in Capricorn four days after a gorgeous Sun-Jupiter trine aspect.
This combination often coincides with opportunity, a chance to break free from whomever or whatever’s holding you back. There may be good news, you might be celebrating with a friend. Or, you find the positive attitude you need to get moving, to crack on.
Self-Care & Asking For Help
Libra season is a time to look after you, to prioritise self-care. Mercury’s in Libra from the 5th to the 27th and the Sun enters Libra on the 22nd, the day of the Equinox.
The important Libra lesson is about finding balance in your life. For you, this is about how you spend your time and looking after your health and well-being.
If you’re overly busy and stressed or unemployed and stressed, Libra season urges you to address the balance, slow things down and realign the scales. It’s about learning to say No and not taking on too much.
Friends are there for you this month, so lean on them. The Sun’s in Virgo and your friendship sector until the 22nd. The Full Moon on the 2nd highlights pleasure; the New Moon on the 17th is ideal for catching up with friends or enjoying a social occasion.
And, you have Venus, the planet of relating, in Leo and your career and vocation sector from the 6th onwards. Another nod towards delegating, networking, making the right connections and asking for help as and when you need it.
Love could feel topsy-turvy, especially on or around the 15th when Venus, your partner planet, clashes with Uranus in Taurus and your relationship sector. The lovers, Venus and Mars, have a tiff on the 4th as well although the Pisces Full Moon on the 2nd promises romance.
Yet, all in all, September’s a month to turn the focus towards you. This will become more important once Mercury enters Scorpio on the 27th.
