Month of September

Aries

Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of September in your work sector, the solar spotlight is always on your work situation and job matters at this time of year and will be until he leaves on 23rd September. However, this year there is a mix of the expected and the unexpected that gives this year a lot more depth but also a lot more potential and that includes across the income, work and career fronts. The expected is that while the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of September in your work sector, since Pluto's return to your career sector in 2008 and since Uranus returned to your income sector in 2019, they have always been in retrograde motion at this time of year.

However, there are some additional factors that make this year different. The first is that you also have Mercury in retrograde motion in your work sector and until he turns direct on 15th September the doors are open to the past, second chances and untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts. The second factor is that Uranus is not on his own in your income sector, with Jupiter still in the early months of your biggest year for income growth and expansion in over a decade and while he starts the month in direct motion, he too will turn retrograde on 5th September, adding to your access to the past, second chances and untapped potential.

Another factor is just how much water has already passed under the bridge on the job front, with Mars having just wrapped up a seven week visit at the end of August while held back by a retrograde phase Venus is yet to return. From Mars' return in July to Venus' eventual departure in November, your work sector will have been active for four months and with the support of planets on the income and career fronts that entire time. Meanwhile, a pivotal point in the month will be when the Moon moves through your work sector from 13th September to 16th September.

Apart from returning in the heart of the working week and connecting with every planet across the income, work and career fronts, it will align with the Sun to create a New Moon on 15th September, the same day that Mercury's direct turn will give work and job matters the green light.

Taurus

Because the Sun will always return to your work sector on the September equinox, always has and always will, his return on 23rd September is something that was always going to turn the solar spotlight onto your work situation and job matters. No matter what, this is the point in each year when you know that work and job matters are going to start gaining some traction and new doors will open. However, you won't have to wait for that for you not only have a head start but this is something that you have literally been preparing for all year.

It was last December that the dwarf planet Ceres returned to your work sector to begin her first deep dive into your needs and priorities on the job front in four years. This did not kick off some active months on the job front for her focus is less on work and job matters themselves and instead her focus is internal, in that her job is to help you better understand your needs and priorities and especially when it comes to job satisfaction and a sense of purpose. Ceres did leave in March only to turn retrograde, something that saw her make a U turn and come back and as you move into September, she is still here but getting ready to leave on 16th September.

However, while Ceres herself is not responsible for an explosion of job potential that opened up late last month, she is responsible for ensuring that you are prepared to hit the ground running, knowing what you are fighting for from the start. That explosion of potential is thanks to Mars' return to your work sector late last month and as you move into the new month you are still settling into the warrior planet's first visit in two years. Until he leaves on 12th October Mars is on a mission to fire up your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit while giving you the drive to make things happen and get things done.

This has brought you to the start of the busiest months of 2023 while giving you a jump on the Sun's return on 23rd September. The Moon will return just a few hours after Ceres leaves on 16th September and will leave on 18th September, before the Sun returns, giving you direct access to Mars and his influence. Meanwhile, the Moon's return to your career sector from 25th September to 27th September will ensure your professional instincts are sharp during the Sun's early days.

Gemini

The month not only begins with the Moon in your career sector but with a Full Moon here on 31st August still playing out. This was a Full Moon that will always fall in your career sector at this time of year but is the first in three decades with Saturn here at the time. While Neptune has been here since 2012 and Saturn's return in March has given them nearly six months to get accustomed to working together, as a Full Moon this can act as a major catalyst.

With both Saturn and Neptune in retrograde motion but the Moon in direct motion, this includes the potential for unexpected new developments or a trigger for the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped professional potential. This is also the Moon's first visit since the last planet left your work sector last month, so could also have implications on the job front as well. However, with the Moon gone by 2nd September and after a fairly dramatic start to the month, things will settle down after that and especially any professional pressure towards the end of last month.

However, things won't remain quiet for the rest of the month and instead, you have two weeks to let the implications from the Full Moon to play out and for things to settle ahead of a small event with big implications. That in the scheme of things small event is the dwarf planet Ceres' return to your work sector on 16th September to begin her first deep dive into your needs and priorities on the job front in four years. This isn't going to create any movement on the job front for this is more an internal experience.

However, this is a chance to update your needs and priorities on the job front and especially when it comes to job satisfaction and a sense of purpose ahead of the Sun, Mercury and Mars' return next month. This is giving you a chance to get in before the busiest months of 2023 begin on 12th October. Giving you an early read on this will be the Moon's return to your work sector from 18th September to 21st September.

Meanwhile, there could be some unexpected developments when the Moon comes full circle from that Full Moon in your career sector from 27th September to 29th September.

Cancer

It is a given that the dwarf planet Eris, in your career sector since 1926 and Chiron, here since 2019 will have turned retrograde by this time each year and that they will spend the rest of the year in retrograde motion. With the first half of the year the most active on the career front and with November and December set to be the busiest months of the year on the job front, this gives you a chance to pull back on the gas and go back over the professional year so far to ensure nothing is missed or there is nothing that you want to return to. This is also just a valuable chance to review and understand the journey so far.

However, the difference this year is that this won't put all your focus on the rear view mirror. While Eris and Chiron will remain in retrograde motion for the rest of the year the North Node, who returned in July will only maintain a sense of professional direction but will keep things moving forward. This will also make the Moon's two visits to your career sector this month a lot more significant and especially the second visit.

The Moon will make its first visit from 2nd September to 4th September, with a chance to ensure your professional instincts are sharp in the early days of the month and especially in the lead up to Venus' direct turn in your income sector on 4th September. As the Moon moves through it will align with the North Node and both planets in your career sector, giving you a window into the new and untapped potential they are giving you access to. Another important point in the month will be when the Moon moves through your work sector from 21st September to 23rd September.

As well as giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters a friendly aspect to Venus, the North Node and both planets in your career sector will bring things together across the income, work and career fronts, auspiciously right in the heart of the working week. However, what could be a major wildcard due to the North Node's influence is the Moon's return to your career sector from 29th September to 1st October as a Full Moon. The Full Moon is on 29th September, too far away from the North Node to make this an eclipse but still with the potential to be a major wildcard.

Leo

Despite the fact that within days of moving into the new month every planet in your two professional houses will not only be in retrograde motion but barely moving, this is an exciting month across the income, work and career fronts. Since his return to your work sector in 2008, this is the point in each year when Pluto will be slowing down ahead of his direct turn, with a retrograde phase that has usually begun in April just coming to an end while the Sun is in your income sector, which he is until 23rd September. The difference this year is that by the time Pluto turned retrograde he had already left, so this was something that brought him back with a chance to tie up loose ends before leaving again in January.

The timing couldn't be better for when Pluto left in March Jupiter had yet to return to your career sector to begin your biggest year for professional growth and expansion in over a decade. This is also the time of year when Uranus, in your career sector since 2019 will turn retrograde, with Pluto preparing to come out of retrograde motion at the same time, with an overlap that can hold the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential on the job and career fronts for several weeks. As you move into the new month Uranus has been in retrograde motion for less than 72 hours with that overlap not only lasting the whole month but Jupiter's retrograde turn on 5th September will bring him into the fold as well.

Another difference is that while the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of September in your income sector and this will put him at a friendly aspect to the planets on the job and career fronts, this year you have Mercury in retrograde motion there and until his direct turn on 15th September this is holding the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts. Also significant is the Moon, for with planets across the income, work and career fronts so tightly aligned when it visits one it will impact the other. This means that whether it is a visit to your career sector from 4th September to 6th September, your income sector from 13th September to 16th September or to your work sector from 23rd September to 25th September, these will be pivotal days on all three fronts.

In particular, will be the New Moon in your work sector on 15th September, the same day that Mercury turns direct.

Virgo

While there is no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses this month, you not only have the Moon moving through both and on both fronts months of planetary activity already banked, but a lot of planetary activity on the income front. When Pluto left your work sector in June he may have left it empty, but not only did you experience the planet of change and revolution's influence for the first time here in our lifetime but just as Saturn had wrapped up a three year visit. So much has happened on the job front since Saturn's return in 2020 and with Pluto returning in January to spend the next 20 years here, there is not only plenty of momentum but you need time to let things play out.

At the same time, while the last planet left your career sector in June as well, this was after 10 months of planetary activity that included Mars' longest visit in eight decades. Enough was pumped into your work and career sectors in the first half of the year to keep things in motion for not just months but years. So much so that this is not only still playing out, but any more would have been too much and with the Moon's monthly visits more than enough.

At the same time, with Mars making his first visit to your income sector in two years and here all month, this has brought you to the start of the most lucrative months of 2023 and a chance to focus on the money that can come from all that has been invested professionally. The Moon will return for the first of two visits that it will make to your career sector while Mars is in your income sector from 6th September to 8th September. As well as fuelling your professional instincts and imagination, potentially acting as a trigger and ensuring you are emotionally and intuitively engaged, a friendly aspect to Mars will make these good days on the income and career fronts.

Likewise, when the Moon returns for its only visit to your work sector while Mars is in your income sector from 25th September to 27th September it will do the same, this time making this a positive few days on the income and job fronts. This time the Moon will also form a friendly aspect to the Sun, who will return to your income sector on 23rd September.

Libra

You not only start the month with the Moon in your work sector but with a Full Moon here on 31st August still in effect and still playing out. As well as a chance to move into the new month with an intuitive read on work and job matters from the start, this is creating a lot of energy and acting as a trigger for things that will take until the Moon comes full circle from 27th September to 29th September to play out. While that is the case with the Full Moon that falls here at around this time each year, always halfway between the Sun's last visit and the next, not only is this going to get the month off to an empowered start but for the first time in three decades Saturn is here at the time, giving you the resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes.

Saturn has been here since March and Neptune since 2012 and with both in retrograde motion, whatever the Full Moon is able to trigger they can continue to support and especially when it comes to the past, second chances and untapped potential. This is also the Moon's first visit since the last planet to move through your career sector this year left last month, so this has been a valuable chance to regroup and once again, just as you are moving into the new month. From 2nd September, with the Moon no longer in your work sector, there will be a chance to let things settle and play out, however a week later the Moon's retrograde turn in your career sector from 8th September to 11th September will bring you to a pivotal point in the month.

As well as a chance to fuel your professional instincts and imagination and become more emotionally engaged, the Moon will form a friendly aspect to both Saturn and Neptune in your work sector, just as anything triggered by the Full Moon is still playing out. This will make these a pivotal few days on the job and career fronts. It is just a few days later that the dwarf planet Ceres will return to your income sector on 16th September to begin a deep dive into your income needs and priorities ahead of the most lucrative months of 2023, which begin on 12th October.

Ceres will be here when the Moon comes full circle from the Full Moon at the start of the month from 27th September to 29th September.

Scorpio

On both the job and career fronts this is not only a surprisingly good month but on both fronts, with a mix of the expected and the unexpected. On the job front, it is a given that the dwarf planet Eris, here since 1926 and Chiron, here since 2019 will both be in retrograde motion and will be for the rest of the year. This is the point in any year when on the job front when with continuous planetary activity here for decades, it is time to move into review mode and a chance to retrace your steps.

However, the North Node's return in July means not all the focus has shifted to the past, for it will not only maintain a sense of direction but will keep things on track and moving forward. The Moon will make two visits to your work sector this month, but it is the second that could be a major wildcard, though each is important in their own right. Meanwhile, while the Sun left your career sector last month, it is not unusual for either Venus or Mercury to still be here, tying up loose ends.

However, while moving into September with Venus here is not unusual, to have her in retrograde motion and far from being ready to tie up loose ends is not the norm and nor is having the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment here for the first time in four years. Venus will turn direct on 4th September and that is what makes the timing of the Moon's first visit to your work sector for the month significant. Moving through from 2nd September to 4th September, the Moon will be able to sharpen your instincts and ensure you are emotionally and intuitively engaged during Venus' final days in retrograde motion in your career sector.

By the time the Moon returns to your career sector from 11th September to 13th September Venus will be in retrograde motion, with a chance to fuel your professional instincts and imagination and get anything still stuck or stalled moving again. However, with Venus not leaving until 9th October there is a lot of water still to pass under the bridge. That includes the Moon's return to your work sector on 29th September as a Full Moon, which because the North Node is here will have a lot more potency and is more likely to be a wildcard.

Sagittarius

Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of September in your career sector, the solar spotlight is always on your career and professional situation, matters and options at this time of year. However, there has not only been a lot of water that has already passed under the bridge, but this will continue long after the Sun leaves on 23rd September. Instead, the Sun's month long visit is just the centre of months of planetary activity that extend out each side and won't fully run its course until November.

This is much later in the year than is normally the case, in a year when things also began much earlier than they usually do thanks to Mars' return in early July. Mars left at the end of last month but having spent seven weeks firing things up on the job front, his legacy will live on while due to her retrograde phase, Venus won't even return until 9th October. Helping to keep the momentum going and to bridge the gap between the Sun's departure and Venus' return is Mercury, who while returning in July for what is normally a 14 to 15 day visit is still here due to a retrograde turn last month.

This is something that will have exciting implications, for with Pluto in his last full month in retrograde motion in your income sector, Uranus having just turned retrograde in your work sector late last month and Jupiter there on 5th September, this is opening the doors to the past, second chances and untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts. Uranus and Taurus will remain in retrograde motion for the rest of the year, but Mercury will not only turn direct in your career sector on 15th September but on the same day that a New Moon will give career matters the green light, while also acting as a trigger for the doors that will remain open to the past, second chances and untapped potential on the income and job fronts. The Moon is here from 13th September to 16th September, but this is not the only time it will have a significant impact.

Prior to that the Moon will move through your work sector from 4th September to 6th September, ensuring you are emotionally and intuitively engaged as Jupiter turns retrograde here on 5th September.

Capricorn

While the Sun's return to your career sector on 23rd September is the point in each year when the solar spotlight will always shift onto your career and professional situation, matters and options, this year you not only have a head start but this is something that you have literally been preparing for all year. It was in December that the dwarf planet Ceres returned to your career sector for her first deep dive into your professional needs and priorities in four years and especially when it comes to professional satisfaction and a sense of purpose. Ceres left in March but within weeks was slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn that would see her make a U turn and head back.

Ceres returned in June and as you move into the new month she is still here. That deep dive into your professional needs and priorities has continued, but until just a few days before moving into the new month this is all that you were doing, as you prepared for a time when you could put this into practice or take action. That should have meant waiting for the Sun's return on 23rd September but instead, that time has already come, albeit just a few days earlier.

It was late last month that Mars returned for his first visit to your career sector in two years and until leaving on 12th October the warrior planet of the cosmos will not only fire up your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit but will give this professional year its second wind. This is what Ceres has been helping you to prepare for since last December, giving you a clear sense of what you are fighting for from the start. As you move into the new month Mars has only been here for four days, so this is still early days, but it is the Moon's return to your work sector from 6th September to 8th September that will give you a taste of things to come.

On its own, this is something that can sharpen your instincts, act as a trigger and ensure you are emotionally and intuitively engaged on the job front. However, a friendly aspect to Mars will also energise the warrior planet of the cosmos right in the heart of what will be the working week. It is 10 days later that the Moon will return for its only visit to your career sector while Mars is here and the last before the Sun returns from 16th September to 18th September.

This will sharpen your professional instincts and give you a better sense of where to channel Mars' warrior and competitive spirit.

Aquarius

As you move into the new month there is no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses, as you would expect at this time of year. However, things are not nearly as quiet as might appear on paper, for while the Sun left your work sector in July the last planet only left two weeks earlier and when it did it wrapped up five months of planetary activity, something that began much earlier than you would normally expect. Normally the planetary activity on the job front centres on the Sun's month long visit to your work sector from around 22nd June to 23rd July each year, with Venus or Mercury often extending things out a week or two either side.

However, this year it was Mars' return in March that gave things an early start, while the asteroid Juno's first visit in four years extended things out the other side. Either way, as you move into the new month your work sector might be empty, but with a huge amount of momentum and with everything still playing out. It is not until the Moon returns for its first visit to your work sector since Juno left from 8th September to 11th September that you will be ready to tie up loose ends.

Meanwhile, while your career sector is also empty as you move into the new month, when the South Node left in July it left you with a huge amount of insight and especially into where you have been. While the most active months of the year on the career front don't begin until Mars returns to your career sector on 12th October and with the Sun and Mercury returning next month as well, you have a secret weapon that will help you prepare. That secret weapon is the dwarf planet Ceres, who will return to your career sector to begin her first deep dive into your professional needs and priorities on 16th September.

This is something that will have an internal rather than an external impact, but this gives you time to update your professional needs and priorities before the Sun, Mercury and Mars return next month and especially when it comes to professional satisfaction and a sense of purpose. Helping to give you an early read on this will be the Moon's return to your career sector from 18th September to 21st September, just days after Ceres' return. However, as well as fuelling your professional instincts and imagination the Moon can act as a trigger.

Pisces

While the Sun left your work sector on 23rd August, the point in each year when the solar spotlight will shift off your work situation and job matters, it is not uncommon to still have Venus here as you move into September. However, what is not the norm is that Venus is not only in retrograde motion, but she began what is normally a 24 day visit back in early June. While Venus will spend time in retrograde motion in your work sector every eight years, until now she has never spent her entire time in retrograde motion here, either retrograding all the way out only to return once she turns direct again or retrograding back in after leaving.

The last time that Venus spent her whole retrograde phase here was in 1810. This is something that until leaving on 9th October is making this Venus' longest visit to your work sector in our lifetime and she is far from done yet. As we move into the new month Venus has come to a standstill ahead of her direct turn on 4th September and while this means that there might not be a lot of movement at the start of the month, that is about to change.

Even once she turns direct it will take the planet that can attract opportunities weeks to build up speed, considering that she is here until 9th October and is usually only here for 24 days and you add the months she has already spent here, this gives her more than enough time make this the month that everything comes together. Helping her to do that is the asteroid Juno, with the queen of commitment having returned for her first visit in four years last month. With Juno not leaving until 18th October, she will be giving you the resolve to make Venus' final weeks here count while staying on to wrap things up with resolutions that can keep the momentum going.

The Moon will move through your work sector from 11th September to 13th September, sharpening your instincts, acting as a trigger and ensuring you are emotionally and intuitively engaged during Venus' early days back in direct motion. Meanwhile, as well as sharpening your professional instincts as it moves through your career sector from 21st September to 23rd September, a friendly aspect to Venus and Juno in your work sector is going to make these a pivotal few days on both fronts.
