The big story of course this month is on the professional front, with lucky Jupiter spending his first full month in your work sector since 2004, the Sun always spending the first three weeks of September here and a turnaround on the career front as well, it's the professional gods that have your attention. The turnaround on the career front comes from Ceres' direct turn in your career sector on the 15th September, followed 10 days later by Pluto's direct turn on the 25th September. By the end of the week work and career forces will not only be focused on the road and journey ahead, but well on the way to forging a partnership that will continue to develop right through to mid 2017. Of course that's just the big picture, with a real fight being waged by both Venus and Mars in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and by relationship forces that began developing late last month. While Mars will leave on the 25th September and will team up with work forces, on the same day that Pluto turns direct in your career sector, that won't be before first fuelling your romantic and creative passions. Venus will stay on all month, waging a battle to maintain a balance between work and play. In the meantime, Mercury will spend the whole month in your relationship sector, turning retrograde on the 18th September, just days before your annual relationship review begins. This is not only an important month for relationship matters, but for communication in particular. Yet a total lunar eclipse in Aries on the 28th September will ensure that this isn't at the expense of your own needs.
Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of September in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, it's par for the course that the spotlight will be on matters of the heart and all things romantic and creative at this time of year, but what isn't the norm is to have lucky Jupiter on board. This is Jupiter's first full month in your romantic and creative sector since 2004 and not due to leave until September 2016 this is the start of your luckiest year for love and all things romantic and creative in over a decade. Yet early on a strong partnership is being forged with Pluto in an adventurous part of your chart, bringing a sense of romance and adventure together, something that is long overdue. While Pluto has been in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery since 2008 and won't leave until 2024, this is the first and only time in your lifetime that he'll be here while Jupiter is in your romantic and creative sector, putting them in a friendly partnership that will only strengthen over the coming year. However, this comes just as Mercury's return to your work sector late last month and position here all year is opening new doors on the work front, even before the Sun on the 23rd September. Due to turn retrograde on the 18th September and not leave until November, Mercury will play a vital role in all that will unfold over the coming months. While on paper this is a battle to find a balance between work and play, the reality is that Mercury is not in Jupiter's league and playful forces will and must win out. In the meantime, what is more urgent is Saturn's final weeks in your relationship sector, for once he leaves on the 18th September he won't be back for another 27 years and knowing what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, it's time to walk the talk.
Sometimes you have to see the bigger picture for the true implications to be seen and that's the case with Venus' extended stay in your communication sector. Having returned on the 6th June for what should have been a 24 day visit Venus is not only still here, but has been an integral part in all that has unfolded over recent months. In retrograde motion until the 6th September and with support from Mars, Venus is on a mission to give your heart, relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. When a planet breaks its normal pattern the question to ask is why? That question is answered when Saturn returns to your relationship sector on the 18th September, beginning what is undoubtedly the most important relationship years in decades. Not due to leave until December 2017 and with Mars due to spend half of 2016 here, he too has a vested interest in working with Venus this month to ensure the communication lines are open. Communication has been a theme for several months now, with lucky Jupiter's yearlong visit to your communication sector having just wrapped up last month. Venus and Mars will be on duty during Saturn's early weeks in your relationship sector, making sure from the get go that the communication lines are open. In the meantime, while September is always an important month for home and family matters, lucky Jupiter's first full month here since 2004 brings you to the start of your most important and expansive year for home, family and/or property matters in over a decade. Meanwhile, Mercury is the 'little planet that can' this month, spending the whole month in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, competing with some of the major players in the solar system to keep the element of fun, playfulness and romance alive. Mercury will even turn retrograde on the 18th September, the same day Saturn returns to your relationship sector, opening the door to second chances.
While Jupiter's departure from your income sector last month brought your luckiest and most expansive income year in over a decade to an end, as you're already likely to be finding out, it was only after he left on the 11th August that the real opportunities started unfolding. With Mars staying on in your income sector until the 25th September and Venus, in retrograde motion here until the 6th September and not leaving until next month, you'll continue to have access to the income potential the money gods have planted over the last 14 months. There to help you with that is Saturn's return to your work sector on the 18th September and both subtle support from Uranus in your career sector and less subtle support from a total lunar eclipse here on the 28th September. However, don't think you'll get away with disregarding the work/life balance lessons of the past, for just as things are starting to come together on the income, work and career fronts you've reached a time of year when the focus will always fall on home and family matters. Mercury will spend the whole month in your home and family sector and on the 18th September, the same day Saturn returns to your work sector will turn retrograde, making it even more important to make your home life a priority. This is something the professional gods are in favour of, for with Saturn in your work sector until December 2017 and Uranus in your career sector until March 2019, they know the importance of pacing yourself and the integral role that work/life balance plays in this. Over and above everything else the focus this month is on communication and in particular on the relationship front.
While your birthday month ended on the 23rd August and Jupiter left your sign earlier last month, but not before spending 13 months laying down the foundations to a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion, you're not ready to carve your intentions in stone. With Mars in your sign until the 25th September and Venus, in retrograde motion until the 6th September and not due to leave until next month, the door is still open to investing in the things that excite you. Yes, the doors are open to the future, but you're still deciding what you want to fill that future with. In the meantime, with the Sun spending the first three weeks of September in your income sector and Jupiter his first full month here since 2004, this is the start of your most important and potentially lucrative year for income matters in over a decade. Yet it is beyond being just about the money, in the same way that a partnership with work forces is making it more than success on the work front, with job satisfaction a sense of being valued becoming an equally important currency. In your sign Venus will continue to keep the focus on matters of the heart, something that will get a major boost when Saturn returns to your romantic and creative sector on the 18th September. This comes just as Mars moves into his final week in your sign and 12 days after a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane comes to an end, bringing the confidence and motivation to move on and claim what the future holds. Communication is also an important theme this month for while Mercury, planet of communication returned to your communication sector late last month for what should be a 15 day visit, instead of moving on he'll turn retrograde on the 18th September, not leaving until November. Mercury will be here when Ceres returns to your communication sector next month, with a chance first to ensure the communication lines are open and even to give the past and unsaid words a voice.
Whether you are an August or a September born Virgo this is always your month, for with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of September in your sign this is the one month out of any year that feels like home to you, with the Sun overhead now the Sun that was overhead when you came into this world. This is more than just the start of your birthday month and new solar year and is a chance to reboot, to get back to your core values and make a fresh start, yet as far as solar years go this is anything but a carbon copy of previous years. For the first time since 2004 you moved into your birthday month and new solar year to find lucky Jupiter here, with your birthday month coinciding with the start of a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion, making this a year for major new beginnings. From the get go this is one year where you have luck on your side, but a solar eclipse on the 13th September not only turns an ordinary New Moon into an opportunity for major new beginnings, but introduces the element of fate as well. This is the New Moon that brings you to a point in your birthday month that you're able to make a commitment to your new solar year, the future and the journey ahead, but turning into an eclipse is a sign that there are big things ahead. This is putting some pressure on your relationships as you've no doubt already realised, but there's a need to see this as an opportunity for relationship growth. As your own needs become more authentic, your relationships have to adapt to that, with a need to give them time, while ensuring the communication lines are open. In the meantime, this is an important month for both income and financial matters, with unfolding opportunities on both fronts, as well as access to second chances and untapped potential.
It's quite normal to feel that the wind has been taken out of your sails in the final weeks of an old solar year and is a time of year when you're more likely to fall sick with seasonal bugs or just exhaustion, especially if you ignore the signs to slow down and push on at your normal speed. That's the case in any year, but this year as you move into September you're not only in the closing weeks of your old solar year, but the early weeks of the 13 month wind up of a Jupiter cycle that began in September 2004. With a new Jupiter cycle of expansion beginning next year, the coming 12 months is more about closing old doors, bringing things home and bringing closure, ready for the major new beginnings next year. While your birthday month and new solar year will begin on the 23rd September, as per normal, there will be a large part of you that wants and needs to stay in the slow lane. That is especially so on the work front, where working yourself into the ground is no longer supported and here, ignoring the signs to slow down, does run a risk of work tension. What you'll find, most likely through trial and error, is just how much is required of you to keep the momentum going in all aspects of your life without it becoming stressful, eventually finding that sweet zone where you're doing enough but not too much. With Mercury spending the whole of September in your sign you've got the support needed to ensure the communication lines are open, to think on your feet and most importantly to work smarter. Mercury will not only be here during a total lunar eclipse in your relationship sector on the 28th September, but with the doors open to second chances on the communication and relationship fronts at the time, a real breakthrough will be possible.
While the Sun and Jupiter have already moved on, with Jupiter having wrapped up his 13 month visit to your career sector on the 11th August and the Sun on the 23rd August, the professional gods have far from finished developing opportunities and if anything, it's only now that everything is coming together. While Jupiter is the planet of luck and expansion, spending over a year in each area of your chart the focus is on building for the future, so the rule of thumb is that the most opportunities will come together either in his final weeks or after he leaves. That's the case for what is unfolding in your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking, where Jupiter's first full month here is the start of a 13 month journey to build strong friendships and alliances, with your most important year for personal and professional networking in over a decade bearing fruit along the way, but taking until the second half of 2016 to reveal its full potential. So regardless September would have been a month where the professional gods were going to sweep in and capitalise on all the potential Jupiter left you; but with Mars in your career sector until the 25th September, Venus until the 9th October, support all month from work forces and especially from a lunar eclipse in your work sector on the 28th September and Saturn returning to your income sector on the 18th September, they're ensuring no stone has been left unturned. This creates a big month for income, work and career matters, revealing that far from having missed the bus your ship is only now coming into port. In the meantime, Saturn's final weeks in your sign before leaving on the 18th September, not to return for another 27 years, is all about taking your own power back, committing to a future and a path forward that is authentic for you.
First impressions suggest you have a conundrum on your hands, with an especially auspicious month for all things romantic, creative, adventurous and playful competing with what is without a doubt your biggest professional month in over a decade and the start of a major new professional journey. However, when you step back and look at the big picture you'll realise that with Uranus in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart until 2019 and this new professional chapter taking until mid 2017 to play out, you've not only got time and a chance to find a balance between work and play, but there is requirement that you do. This is lucky Jupiter's first full month in your career sector since 2004 and with a solar eclipse here on the 13th September and major new doors continuing to open here on the income front right through this year, all of next year and into the first half of 2017, you'll never succeed if you develop tunnel vision. It's exactly the diversity that may appear to be a problem this month that will help you succeed, allowing you to pace yourself for the long haul. It's not until Mars returns to your career sector on the 25th September, the same day that Pluto turns direct in your income sector that your professional passions and fighting spirit will kick in and things will really take off, allowing you to make the most of not only a spirit of playfulness in the air this month but of adventure. Even if you wanted to keep your professional hat on 24/7, work/life balance tensions will keep this in check, with other areas of your chart protesting. This won't be at the detriment of this amazing new professional chapter and will work to your advantage in the long run.
Despite the fact that the Sun, Mercury and Jupiter all left your financial sector last month, the Sun wrapping up your annual financial review and Jupiter your most important financial year in over a decade, the money gods are not only still active this month, this is when you're likely to see results. The 13 months that Jupiter spent in your financial sector were all about creating a foundation for future financial growth, growth and opportunities that Venus and Mars aren't prepared to wait for. Until leaving your financial sector on the 25th September Mars will be fuelling your financial passions and fighting spirit, while Venus will continue to fuel your financial desires and expectations, along with triggering the laws of attraction until leaving on the 9th October. However, there is no doubt that the timbre and tone of the year itself has changed, something that even the fact that new doors are opening on the career front won't deter you from. While the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of September in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery, lucky Jupiter is spending his first full month here since 2004 and not due to leave until September 2016 the doors have opened to your most exciting and adventurous year in over a decade. A solar eclipse here on the 13th September will be a chance to commit to the future and the journeys ahead. Normally this is a few exciting weeks of any year that is forgotten once the planets start returning to your career sector and while new doors will open on the career front this month and even more over the coming months, adventurous forces are a lot more powerful and impossible to be ignored. It's time to start having a life.
There are a lot of planets demanding your attention this month, with the relationship gods feeling they should have your full attention, the professional gods feeling they should and the money gods not only demanding that they should, but are squabbling amongst each other to whether income and financial matters should come first. With only so much of you to go around smart time management is required, but it will also be important to keep things in their own lane, without overlapping each other. With Mars in your relationship sector until the 25th September, Venus in retrograde motion here until the 6th September but not leaving until the 9th September, this is a hugely important month for relationship matters, especially as you've spent the last 13 months establishing what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. This shouldn't be in competition with anything else and instead should be in its own lane, knowing when to focus on your relationships, when to keep your professional hat on and/or your money hat. If there is any urgency it's on the professional front, with Saturn not only leaving your career sector on the 18th September but once he's left not returning for another 27 years. Yet as urgent as Saturn might make things appear, while he's moving on with the Sun returning next month and Mars spending half of 2016 here, your professional game is in safe hands. Saturn's final weeks in your career sector are all about laying down the foundations for future professional success and growth, even if that means the behind the scenes work that you could cut corners on, but if you do would limit your future growth. Saturn is also playing support for income forces, as Jupiter's first full month in your financial sector since 2004 puts the focus on money matters, at a time of the year when the solar spotlight will always be on money matters.
In everything you do and in every aspect of your life, the keyword this month is balance, whether it be balancing an extremely important and busy professional month with an equally important month for relationship matters or you're balancing your personal and relationship needs. You even have the money gods competing for your attention, with an important month for money matters as a whole also an important month for income matters. Uranus, in retrograde motion in your income sector, has been working closely with work forces for the past 13 months, but with Mars leaving your work sector on the 25th September and Venus early next month, a total lunar eclipse in your income sector on the 28th August will not only give income and work matters a boost, but career matters as well. For it's on the 18th September that Saturn will return to your career sector, in time to prop up both work and income forces, while opening the door to a powerful professional chapter that will take until December 2017 to run its course. However, September also just happens to be not only the most important month of the year for relationship matters, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of September in your relationship sector, but with lucky Jupiter spending his first full month here since 2004, this is the start of your most important relationship year in over a decade. Yet already this is likely to be creating some personal and/or relationship tension, which is in fact a healthy sign. For where it's coming from is forces determined to put your needs and interests first, making sure that this powerful new relationship era doesn't push your needs aside. Again it's all about balance, working to find a balance that can only come when you get to the heart of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
