Monthly Career Horoscopes - September 2018
This month has a mix of the ordinary and the extraordinary, giving you enough familiarity to keep you grounded, while throwing all your options wide open. The familiarity comes from the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of September in your work sector, always has and always will. This is when the solar spotlight is on your work situation and job matters and this is where a lot of your attention is drawn. Apart from Ceres making her first visit in four years and the fact that Venus has already been and gone, it is business as usual on the job front this year. Ceres will leave on the 6th September, but not before updating your needs and priorities, especially when it comes to job satisfaction and a sense of purpose. This is the same day that Mercury returns and until leaving on the 22nd September, he will give you the intellectually savvy edge needed to work smarter, make smart choices, decisions and plans and to keep your head in the game. With the Sun's departure on the 23rd September bringing all planetary activity to a close, a New Moon here on the 10th September will be a rallying cry. This is all very ordinary and what you would expect at this time of year, but what is extraordinary is the support. You begin the month with Mars back for a rare double dip visit to your career sector, Saturn in his final days in retrograde motion there and aligned with Uranus in your income sector, for the first time in our lifetime. With Saturn turning direct on the 6th September, the same day that Mercury returns to your work sector, four days out from the New Moon resources across the income, work and career fronts will come together. Mars will leave your career sector on the 11th September, but not before firing up your professional year. All activity on the job front will end, but on the career front, it is just starting to fire back up.
If there was no history and you looked only at where things stood in the moment, first impressions on the 1st September would suggest that things were very ordinary and typical for this time of year. Starting the month with Venus in your work sector is an advantage, especially with Mercury not returning until the 22nd September and the Sun until the 23rd September, as is the case every year. Yet it was just last month that Mars retrograded back out of your career sector and returning on the 11th September for a rare double dip visit, this is anything but typical for this time of year. The professional gods are working in tandem and not just between them keeping job and career matters moving in unison. Ceres will return to your work sector on the 6th September, three days before Venus leaves on the 9th September. Not only will this give Venus someone to hand the reins to, it will keep her seat warm until Mercury returns on the 23rd September. Unlike the Sun, Mercury and Venus, Ceres is not here to make things happen, but to update your needs and priorities, especially when it comes to job satisfaction and a sense of purpose. With Venus returning for a double dip visit after the Sun and Mercury have moved through, this is a chance to regroup. It is during that period when Ceres is on her own and you're reflecting on your needs and priorities on the job front, ahead of the Sun and Mercury's return, that Mars will return to your career sector on the 11th September. Having left just 29 days earlier, Mars will turn in direct motion and ready to fire up your professional year, before leaving on the 11th November. With Venus back in your work sector by then, things are coming alive across the job and career fronts. There are also some surprise income developments during that time.
Jupiter has been in your work sector since last October and in direct motion since July, but it is only now that things are starting to move and come together. This would have happened anyway, with Jupiter needing time to gain any speed after a four month retrograde phase ended and leaving in November, he's ready to bring things home. Yet Jupiter being ready to bring things home doesn't always mean that the conditions are right or he has the support and to start with, that is the case. You may even be feeling frustrated, which is a positive sign that you can sense things are about to take off. The game changer is Venus' return to your work sector on the 9th September, exactly two months to the day before Jupiter leaves on the 9th November. Venus will return to ask Jupiter 'what have you been waiting for'? To which he will reply 'you'. Jupiter plays a long game and while he has returned to bring job growth and opportunities, he is looking beyond his time here and to sustained growth, knowing he won't be back until 2029. Venus, on the other hand, returns every year and goes straight for the low hanging fruit. Jupiter has been preparing to bring things home since he returned last October, but you needed to go through the journey and reach a point where you had all your ducks in a row. Venus returns to attract opportunities and to work with Jupiter to make things happen, something she's taking seriously. Instead of moving through in 24 days, as she normally does, Venus is here until the 1st November. Even then, she'll return for a double dip visit after Jupiter is gone. Both Jupiter and Venus will continue to work with Neptune in your career sector, drawing on his professional dreams and confidence.
While things are fairly low key on the professional front this month, this is exactly what you need. With Saturn in your work sector from December 2014 to December 2017, a three year boot camp meant that there was no point in any year that you've been able to take your work hat off, always needing to be on your game. With lucky Jupiter returning on the 9th November to kick off your biggest year for job growth and opportunities in over a decade, one that won't run its course until December 2018, make the most of this slower pace. The reason for this slower pace is that Eris and Chiron, the only planets in either of your two professional houses, are both in retrograde motion in your career sector. Chiron will retrograde back out on the 26th September, just a day after a Full Moon here on the 25th September has the potential to create a breakthrough. This is a Full Moon that will also see the Moon clash with the Sun, in his early days in your home and family sector. This is a Full Moon that will always put your work/life balance to the test and with Jupiter just six weeks away from your work sector by then, neither the timing nor the message could be better. The Moon is in your career sector from the 25th September to the 27th September, fuelling your professional instincts and imagination, as well as putting your work/life balance to the test and creating the potential for a breakthrough. With Uranus returning to your career sector in November and Jupiter to your work sector just two days later, things are getting ready. With Jupiter literally drawing closer by the day, the Moon's return to your work sector from the 15th September to the 18th September will bring some valuable clues, hunches and insights.
While September is always the most important month of any year for income matters, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of September in your income sector, this is not usually an active point in your professional year. This can create a mismatch, where you have the income potential, but not the professional backing that income opportunities need. Fortunately, this is not the case this year and better still, it won't be the case for a long time to come. The powerful forces in play on the job and career fronts are individually rare, while collectively they have never happened before in our lifetime. Yet get used to this, for with Saturn in your work sector until December 2020 and Uranus in your career sector until 2026, this is set to become the new normal. You start the month with Uranus and Saturn still aligned and they will remain aligned until the 15th September, but the dynamics will shift. You start the month with both in retrograde motion, but Saturn's direct turn in your work sector on the 6th September will turn his focus onto the future. Yet with Mars having turned direct on the job front at the end of last month and Pluto in retrograde motion until the 1st October, the past, present and future will overlap all month. Mars only retrograded back in for a double dip visit last month and until leaving on the 11th September, he will be working to fire things up and get things moving. Mars is the only planet not here for the long haul, so will want to make things happen before he leaves. With Mercury in your income sector until the 22nd September, the Sun until the 23rd September and a New Moon there on the 10th September, this is a stunning month across the income, work and career fronts.
All is fairly quiet on the professional front at the start of the month, as you would expect at this time of year. By the time you reach September all the planetary activity on both the job and career fronts is long since over and not due to start up again until next year. However, that is not how things will feel, especially with Mars having just left your work sector last month, with the promise that he would return. Having already spent three months here and with a total lunar eclipse during that time, Mars stepped out in order to let things settle. Mars will return for a rare double dip visit to your work sector on the 11th September and the timing couldn't be better. Here now until the 16th November and back in direct motion, Mars has three months of experience and you've both got 20/20 hindsight to draw on. This is an opportunity for a do over, starting over again but with a practice run already under your belt. The reasons why the timing couldn't be better, is that this comes just as things are starting to move and come together on the income front. By the time the Moon returns to your work sector from the 20th September to the 23rd September, you will have had a chance to adjust to having Mars on board. This is when you'll get a better read on the undercurrents on the job front and on where Mars' work passions, fighting and competitive spirit are drawing you. In the meantime, the Moon will move through your career sector from the 2nd September to the 5th September and will then come full circle on the 30th September. These will be important days across the income, work and career fronts.
This is not an active point of any year on the job front and in fact, this is the halfway point between the Sun's last visit to your work sector and the next. With Neptune in your work sector since 2012 and before that continuous planetary activity since 2003, things will never go completely off the boil. Yet when you have planets in an area of your chart for years rather than weeks or months, a retrograde phase each year is always a valuable chance to pull back. For Neptune, planet of dreams, that time has always been between June and November. In retrograde motion until the 25th November, but with Mars returning to fire things up from the 16th November, this quiet phase will be shorter this year. Yet while Neptune is in retrograde motion, there is likely to be a lot more job confidence than in most years and also greater access to the past, second chances and untapped job potential. With Chiron, planet of healing gone since April you haven't had to focus on also dealing with old baggage. With support from Jupiter in your income sector and from Venus when she returns there on the 9th September, that job confidence will only increase. Chiron will retrograde back into your work sector on the 26th September, but a month after last month's Full Moon, this will be a chance to address anything this has flushed out. After five months on his own, Neptune has established his lead on the job front, with Chiron returning to finish what he started in 2010, which is to lay old ghosts to rest. The Moon will move through your work sector from the 23rd September to the 25th September. Coming full circle from last month's Full Moon, this could trigger unexpected developments. What is born on a Full Moon often comes to fruition when the Moon comes full circle.
While there are cosmic influences in play on the job and career fronts all month, this will mainly make its presence felt in the first and final week of the month and in turn. During the first week, the focus is firmly on career and professional matters as a whole, while in the final week it is all about work and job matters. Why the first week is all about work and job matters, is because with Mercury leaving your career sector on 6th September, he is bringing 14 months of continuous planetary activity to a close. This makes it important to keep your head in the game, focused on finalising your professional game plan and resolutions and on cementing a sense of professional direction. With the North Node, the force behind last month's solar eclipse staying on, this will ensure the wheels keep turning, but not in the proactive way as they are when Mercury is here. The Moon will move through your career sector from the 7th September to the 9th September, fuelling your professional instincts and imagination and arriving a day after Mercury leaves, bringing a chance to regroup. With the North Node keeping the professional momentum going and Eris and Chiron both in retrograde motion in your work sector, things will settle back to a balanced and low key state. It is the Moon's return to your work sector on the 25th September that will see things heat up there. As well as creating a Full Moon on the 25th September, here until the 27th September, the Moon will ensure your instincts are sharp and you have an intuitive read on work and job matters, as Chiron retrogrades back out on the 26th September. This will be freeing and liberating.
This is always going to be an active point in your professional year, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of September in your career sector. While you've had Pluto in your income sector since 2008 and that has always been a support for the planets moving through your career sector, in retrograde motion this was more moral support and access to untapped income potential. What you don't usually have is planetary activity on the job front or both Saturn and Mars in your income sector as well. You start the month with bases loaded across the income, work and career fronts and by loaded, I mean seriously loaded. You start the month with the Sun and Ceres in your career sector, Uranus and Juno in your work sector and with Saturn, Pluto and Mars in your income sector. Just having these planets here at the same time is a first in our lifetime, but Saturn and Pluto are in a month long alignment that won't start to move apart until the 15th September. Mars is back in your income sector for a rare double dip visit, but while he'll leave again on the 11th September, with Saturn turning direct there on the 6th September, income forces will continue to carry their weight. Saturn turns direct on the same day that Ceres leaves your career sector and Mercury returns, shifting the focus from updating your professional needs and priorities and onto a more active and strategic phase. A New Moon in your career sector on the 10th September could be a catalyst for unexpected developments across the income, work and career fronts. While the Sun will leave your career sector on the 23rd September and Mercury on the 22nd September, income and job forces will continue to work together.
No matter what, the Sun's return to your career sector on the 23rd October is the one point in every year that you can expect your professional year to heat up. For the Sun returns to throw the solar spotlight on your professional game and onto your career and professional situation, matters and options at this time every year, always has and always does. Last year you had Jupiter in his last full month, something that the planets moving through this month are ready to capitalise on. This is something already in motion, thanks to Venus' return to your career sector last month. By the time you move into the new month, Venus has already spent weeks fuelling your professional confidence, attracting opportunities and updating your desires and expectations. While Venus will leave on the 9th September, she will make a rare double dip visit from the 1st November to the 3rd December. This will be after the Sun and Mercury move through, creating a three stage period. Until Venus leaves, it is more about the 'what', getting a sense of what you want to achieve over the coming month. Mercury's return to your career sector on the 22nd September and the Sun's return on the 23rd September, will usher in a more objective and strategic period, where it is more about the 'when, where and how' and about making things happen. Then, after the Sun and Mercury have moved on, Venus will retrograde back in to check that no opportunities have been missed, exploiting every opportunity they have created, along with hunting down any untapped income potential.
Jupiter has been in your career sector since last October and in direct motion since July and due to leave in November, this was always going to be the point where you began to bring things home. While Jupiter had a lot of support in his early months with the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars all moving through late last year, he has been on his own since Mars left in January. Alone that is, apart from the Moon's monthly visits, returning with the insight needed to stay on track. In retrograde motion from March to July, it takes weeks, if not months for a planet Jupiter's size to get moving again. Yet having turned direct on the 11th July, Jupiter is starting to gain that traction and while the Sun won't return until later next month, he's ready to bring things home on his own if he has to. Fortunately, he doesn't have to, with Venus fortuitously returning on the 9th September, exactly two months to the day before Jupiter himself leaves on the 9th November. If there is any planet who can help bring things home it is Venus, always returning on a mission to fuel your professional confidence, update your expectations and attract opportunities. Normally moving through in 24 days, Venus instead is already slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn next month. This will keep her here for nearly two months and while she will retrograde back out on the 1st November, she'll return in early December and will stay on until January 2019. Venus is not only here to help exploit and capitalise on all the momentum and potential banked over the last 11 months, but will return after Jupiter leaves to ensure no stone has been left unturned. The next four months are the point that everything until now has lead up to and everything from now will lead on from.
When Mercury returned to your work sector in early July it was for what should have been a 14 to 15 day visit designed to give you the intellectually savvy edge needed to get your head in the game, work smarter and to make smart choices, decisions and plans. Instead, in that time the Sun and Venus have both been and gone, he's battled Mars numerous times and has kept your head in the game during a solar eclipse and during his own retrograde phase. Finally, after two months Mercury is getting ready to not only leave, but wrap up 14 months of continuous planetary activity. It was Mercury's return to your work sector in July 2017 that kicked things off for the year and while he moved through quickly, as did the Sun, Venus and even Mars, Ceres not only returned but didn't leave until this June. And not before Venus returned to take up the reins, ensuring that at no point since July 2017 was there any less than at least one planet in your work sector. Mercury's departure on the 6th September will end that streak and while the North Node, the force behind last month's solar eclipse and two other eclipses over the previous 12 months will stay on, you'll finally get a chance to pull back. Mercury will leave you with the intellectually savvy edge and the articulation needed to keep your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open, but without the need to keep your work hat on 24/7. With Jupiter returning to your career sector on the 9th November to kick off a massive new professional surge, one that will dominate the next 13 months, this is a valuable chance to pull back. Until Mercury leaves on the 6th September, put everything you have into everything you do. The Moon will move through from the 7th September to the 9th September, with a chance to tie up loose ends and regroup.
