Monthly General Horoscopes - September 2018
In every sense of the word we are on the other side of this year's hump, with the pace not only picking up in these final four months, but becoming a lot more exciting. At one point last month we not only had eight planets in retrograde motion, but with Jupiter in his first full month in direct motion he was still barely crawling forward. When you threw in two solar eclipses, a total lunar eclipse and a lot of oppositions playing out, this created a situation where things became bogged down, were intense and there was a fair bit of tension. That all started to change last month, with both a Mercury and a Mars retrograde period ending. This continues this month, with Saturn turning direct on the 6th September. It was Mars' direct turn in your career sector on the 28th August, followed by Saturn's direct turn here on the 6th September that has them ready to ride the new wave forming on the job front. The Sun will not only always spend the first three weeks of September in your work sector, but will never retrograde, always moving things forward. This means that it is on the professional front that you're likely to see the first signs of movement, but with Uranus remaining in retrograde motion in your income sector. This means that as things start to move forward professionally, you'll also have access to untapped income potential. Venus also gives what is an important month for relationship matters a head start, before leaving your relationship sector on the 9th September. It is then that Venus will join Jupiter in your financial sector, kicking off the most important months of this financial year.
With the Sun always spending the first three weeks of September in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and then returning to your work sector, this is always a month when a balance between work and play becomes important. That is because, while the Sun will always return on the 23rd September, the lines are often blurred if Venus or Mercury return earlier. This year they are blurred from the get go, with Venus already in your work sector from the get go. While Venus will leave your work sector on the 9th September, with Ceres returning on the 6th September and Mars to your career sector on the 11th September, the professional momentum will not only continue, but you're moving into the most exiting four months of this professional year. With the Sun in an adventurous part of your chart until the 23rd September and adventurous forces in play all month, life can't be all work and no play. While there won't be a return of the work/life balance issues of recent months, you are definitely able to learn from them. On a personal note, you have Uranus in his first full month in retrograde motion in Taurus in eight decades. Uranus only returned in May, for what is the start of a journey towards finding your personal truth that will take until 2026 to fully play out. Turning retrograde so soon after arriving means that Uranus will retrograde back out in November, returning to start over next March. In retrograde motion you're able to learn more about yourself by looking back and reflecting. This comes at a time when life itself is speeding up. There is also the potential for something special on the relationship front this month.
As we move into the final four months of the year, the pace picks up on a number of fronts, with the first 10 days of the month likely to see a lot of things fall into place. It begins on the 6th September, a day that will witness three significant events, all within the space of a few hours. The first is Ceres' departure from your home and family sector and return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, ready to take the reins from Venus, when the planet of love leaves on the 9th September. The second event on the 6th September is Mercury finally leaving your communication sector after over two months, taking Ceres' seat and joining the Sun to focus on home and family matters. The third event on the same day is Saturn's direct turn in your financial sector, just nine days after Mars turned direct there late last month. With Mars leaving your financial sector on the 11th September, he'll do what he can to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit, ready for Saturn's steady hand to take the wheel, steering money matters forward. It is where Venus and Mars are off to that creates both a new level of excitement and a need for balance. On the 9th September Venus will finally join Jupiter in your work sector, exactly two months before the planet of luck and expansion is due to leave on the 9th November. This is when what has been a slow burn on the job front this year, turns into a forest fire. Yet just two days later, Mars will return to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery, to once again fuel a passion for adventure and a hunger for life's richer experiences.
The biggest challenge that you'll face this month is relaxing enough to enjoy what is set to be a vibrant and creative month and if you're used to being busy 24/7, you may have become used to playing the guilt card if you take time out. However, two factors make it essential that you do. The first is that Jupiter's return to your work sector from early November through to December 2019, will kick off a busy year, with a chance until then to hold back. The second is that while the focus is on matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative, this is something you can take with you, into every aspect of your life. There is also a strong focus on all your relationships, from personal to professional and everything in between, as well as on communication and things close to home. There is enough happening on the professional front to keep the wheels turning, including a Full Moon in your career sector on the 25th September. Yet with both planets in your career sector in retrograde motion and no planets in your work sector until the end of next month, there is nothing to be gained by going above and beyond. In the meantime, you're likely to find that things come together financially and that any financial tension over recent months dials right back. That has been the case since Mars retrograded back out of your financial sector last month, giving income matters room to breathe. The Sun left your income sector last month, but until Mercury leaves on the 6th September, he'll continue to give you the smart head for money needed to seize opportunities. Mercury will be gone by the time Mars returns to your financial sector on the 11th September, with a chance to focus on financial growth.
This month is dominated by a major coming together of forces on the job and career fronts, but with the professional gods starting to take a divide and conquer approach. By the time Mars retrograded back into your work sector last month, Saturn and Pluto had already been in retrograde motion there for months. Then, when Uranus turned retrograde in your career sector last month, this put all planets in both your professional houses in retrograde motion. While Uranus will remain in retrograde motion until retrograding back out in November, Mars turned direct late last month and Saturn will turn direct on the 6th September. With Mars wrapping up his rare double dip visit to your work sector on the 11th September, the early part of the month could see some real movement, momentum and a turnaround on the job front. With Mercury in your income sector from the 6th September to the 22nd September and the Sun leaving there on the 23rd September, they're on hand to help you highlight and exploit the potential across the income, work and career fronts. However, while there is a heavy influence on your professional and financial game, this isn't all you have to focus on this month. This is an important month for home, family and/or property matters, with Venus joining Jupiter in your home and family sector on the 9th September. With Jupiter leaving on the 9th November, Venus returns on the same day that the planet of luck and expansion moves into his final two months, kicking off something special on the home front. With Mars returning for a rare double dip visit to your relationship sector on the 11th September, the huge amount of support from the communication gods comes with perfect timing.
Whether you are an August or a September born Virgo, this is always an important month for you. Until the Sun leaves Virgo on the 23rd September, your birthday month and the launch of your new solar year is still unfolding. By the time you move into the new month Mercury, planet of communication and smart thinking and your ruling planet is yet to arrive. As Mercury helps you create your game plan and resolutions for your new solar year, this is something that you're not able to work on yet. That phase will begin with Mercury's return to Virgo on the 6th September, just four days before a New Moon on the 10th September. This is the New Moon that always falls at some point during your birthday month, with a chance to commit to your new solar year, the future and the journey ahead. With Mercury leaving on the 22nd September and the Sun on the 23rd September and then no more planetary activity in Virgo, this gives you a finite period of time to work with. That works to your advantage, allowing you to be more decisive. It is then that both the Sun and Mercury will join forces already in play on the income front. With Mars returning for a rare double dip visit to your work sector on the 11th September and Juno returning to your career sector on the 30th September, by the end of the month there will be some serious momentum across the income, work and career fronts. Yet you have some of the big boys of the solar system policing a need for balance, especially between work and play. They are not only supporting matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative, but a sense of adventure as well.
While this is always the point in any year when there is a need for time out to hear yourself think, to reflect and to spend time navel gazing, this won't be to the degree that it often is. Until the Sun returns to Libra on the 23rd September, you're in the final weeks of an old solar year, a time for closing old doors, reflecting on the journey this year has taken you on and on recharging your batteries, ahead of your birthday month and new solar year. This year the lines between the past, present and future are fuelled, with Venus already in Libra as you move into the new month. While Venus will leave on the 9th September, with Ceres returning on the 6th September, as you continue to look back you will also continue to look forward. This allows you to go window shopping before your birthday month and new solar year begins. Even before it does, Mars' return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on the 11th September, not only guarantees support from the get go, but reinforces a need to move forward trusting your heart. In the meantime, Venus' return to your income sector on the 9th September will kick off the most potentially lucrative months of the year. Venus, planet of money returns every year, to fuel your confidence and attract opportunities. With Jupiter leaving exactly two months later on the 9th November, the planets of money will come together as a team. With Uranus in retrograde motion in your financial sector, as you look to the future on the income front, on the financial front as a whole the focus is on the rear view mirror.
While the Sun won't return to Scorpio to begin your birthday month and new solar year until later next month, you not so much have the next best thing this month, but something even better. The month long wind down to your old solar year doesn't even begin until the 23rd September, but Venus' return to Scorpio on the 9th September is the point when everything, for you, will start opening up. This is the same day that Jupiter moves into his final two months in Scorpio and before leaving on the 9th November, he's ready to bring things up, in terms of his mission to plant for the future. Venus returns to Scorpio each year, usually during or just before your birthday month, giving your heart a voice and a clear sense of what you want from the future. Returning on the 9th September for what is usually a 24 day visit could create the danger of peaking too soon or that would have been the case. Had Venus been travelling at her normal speed, she would leave Scorpio early next month, over a month before Jupiter is due to leave and weeks before your birthday month and new solar year begins. Venus is instead here until early November and is already slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn next week that will keep her here. While working with Jupiter to make his final months as auspicious as possible Venus is also the planet of love and guardian of your relationships. Venus returns to find dreamy Neptune in your romantic sector, where he has been since 2012, but also to find Uranus in your relationship sector, for the first time in three decades. Both are in retrograde motion, with Venus returning to find that this is not only a powerful chance to take your own power back, but that the doors are open to the past and second chances on the relationship front and when it comes to all things fun, playful, romantic and creative.
On both the personal, financial and professional fronts this is a powerful month, but also a month where there is no hurry and when things are so laid back that this may create some frustration. You begin the month with the bases loaded across the income, work and career fronts. You not only have two planets in your work sector, three in your income sector and two in your career sector, but they are all working as a team. Yet, even with Mars wrapping up a short double dip visit to your income sector on the 11th September and Saturn turning direct there on the 6th September, there is no urgency. Saturn is not only aligned with Uranus, in retrograde motion in your work sector until the 15th September, but they will work together as a team for years to come. This is still about building foundations. If there is any urgency or at least where there is nothing holding things back, is on the career front. With the Sun's departure from your career sector on the 23rd September wrapping up all planetary activity for the year, there is a need to get your ducks in a row. Yet with so much ongoing support on the income and job fronts, it is more about have a sense of professional direction. Where you are playing the waiting game is on the personal front, with lucky Jupiter drawing closer to Sagittarius by the day. You move into the final months of this current 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion on the 9th September, the same day that Venus joins him in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart. Venus will stay here for nearly two months, working with Saturn to both close old doors and prepare for the start of a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion and year for major new beginnings, on the 9th November.
It is rare to get a second chance, especially from Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos. Mars returns to Capricorn once every other year, every 22 months on average, spending six weeks firing up your passions and fighting spirit, while getting a new Mars cycle off the ground. Mars left Capricorn in May, so shouldn't be back until 2020, a year that by the way is destined to be the most powerful year in your lifetime. Yet here we are, moving into September and who should be in Capricorn, but Mars. Mars retrograded back into Capricorn last month, before turning direct on the 28th August. Mars will leave Capricorn for the second time in four months on the 11th September, however this time he won't do a U turn and come back. This is a rare opportunity for a do over, a rare second chance to work with the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos to embrace the things that excite you, your passions or even your fighting spirit. With Saturn turning direct in Capricorn on the 6th September, whatever you throw yourself into you have backup to see this through. Saturn not only gives you determination and willpower, but the power to move mountains if you have to. With Saturn in Capricorn nothing is impossible, something that you're only now waking up to. This is something that you're able to take with you into every aspect of your life. This warrior spirit will be especially potent on the income front, with Mars returning to your income sector on the 11th September, just as things are starting to move professionally. Another area of your life that is set to gain some serious traction this month is on the social front, with personal and professional networking getting a real boost.
A sleeping giant is coming out of hibernation this month and rather than the princess being awoken by the kiss of her prince, it is the prince getting awoken by the kiss of his princess. The prince is Jupiter, king of the solar system and the most powerful. In your career sector since last October, but a four month retrograde phase having only ended in July, Jupiter is only now starting to gain traction. That all changes with Venus, queen of the solar system's return to your career sector on the 9th September. With Jupiter leaving on the 9th November, Venus returns on the same day that the planet of luck and expansion moves into his final two months and instead of racing through, she's here to stay. Normally racing through in 24 days, Venus won't leave until the 1st November, by which point the Sun and Mercury will be here to take over from where she leaves off. Whatever you've been building towards professionally or in your personal goals and ambitions, reaches a point this month where you're moving into the end game, ready to bring everything together. Yet with a lot of planetary activity in an adventurous part of your chart and the Sun making this an important month for money matters, this won't be your only focus. Mars' return to Aquarius on the 11th September will make an impact, for returning just two days after Venus returns to your career sector, this will see your passions and fighting spirit kick in. Mars will return after Mercury leaves your relationship sector on the 6th September, avoiding the potential for any relationship tension. Instead, Mercury is working until he leaves to ensure the communication lines are open.
The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of September in your relationship sector and as no planet can move through without moving into opposition with Neptune in Pisces, this can create some tension. Yet this year the tension levels are way down, while the support from the communication gods is way up. Until the Sun leaves your relationship sector on the 23rd September, he will keep the solar spotlight on your relationships while from the 6th September to the 22nd September Mercury, planet of communication will help with the communication lines. For the first time in nine years the planets have returned to find that Chiron, planet of healing is no longer in Pisces, so while they will still clash with dreamy Neptune, this won't bring up old issues and baggage. Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces this month, but not until the 25th September, two days after the Sun leaves your relationship sector. For the first time in eight decades, the Sun and Mercury both return to find Uranus in your communication sector. This may be something new, but this is the new normal until 2026. In the meantime, there is a new sense of urgency on the adventurous front. While Venus' return to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery on the 9th September will see her join forces with Jupiter to intensify his adventurous influence, this is also the beginning of the end. With Jupiter leaving exactly two months later on the 9th November, there is no better planet than Venus to help make these final months count. Yet with Jupiter not only leaving in November, but returning to your career sector to kick off a big year for professional growth, this adds to a sense of urgency.
