September

Personal for Friend

Dear Friend, get ready to rise!

September brings with it a positive new attitude — starting with the wee hours of September 2, when the Moon waxes full in sensitive Pisces, filling you with a sense of optimism. This Full Moon is supported by a sextile with innovation-leading Uranus in retrograde, revealing new solutions to old problems.

On September 5, messenger Mercury makes his way into social Libra, opening your heart to new and old connections. You will naturally be able to see both sides of an argument, and you will work well with others. Charming Venus enters into passionate Leo on September 6, creating a romantic atmosphere. This is an excellent transit for flirting, making grand gestures, and making your loved ones feel extra special.

On September 9, warrior Mars stations retrograde in Aries. When the red planet moves in reverse, he encourages you to slow down and think less about making changes; instead, you become introspective. This is a good transit to practice patience, or to heal any inner wounds you’ve been grappling with. You’ll be ready to begin forging ahead again when Mars stations direct in Aries on November 13.

Starting September 12, Jupiter will station direct again in Capricorn, after being retrograde since May 14. You would have learned to become flexible and change your thinking as the planet of luck and abundance has moved in reverse, and now you will have a chance to strengthen your newly found habits.

On September 22, the Sun moves to celebrate Libra’s sign. This period encourages diplomacy; you will find it easier to create harmony, and you may feel pulled to experiment with your style a little too. Witty Mercury makes his way into strategic Scorpio on September 27. During this transit, you will have to be mindful of your focus — you run the risk of getting too bogged down in the details.

You will end the month on a happy and healthy note: Responsible Saturn, your planetary rulemaker stations direct in practical Capricorn on September 29, helping you to solidify all those beneficial new habits that your created for yourself when the ringed planet started moving in reverse, back on May 11.

Yours Sincerely,
