If not just specific work matters but everything you are working for and towards now, have been for the past year and what you hope to gain moving forward could be seen as a marathon race, then moving into September 2016 is not so much moving into the home straight, for you did that last month, but finally crossing the finishing line. How you finish this race will not only determine your potential success now, but the kind of success and growth possible over the coming years. If winning an Olympian Gold Medal can set an athlete up for life in terms of sponsorship deals and funding, then what you are willing to invest now, will have ongoing benefits for month and even years to come, whether or not you win the gold. With a host of planets surrounding lucky Jupiter as he move into his final days in your work sector and as they stay on after he leaves on the 9th September, in order to tie up loose ends, there is a need to move into the month determined to put everything you have into everything you do. With the Sun keeping the solar spotlight on your situation, matters and options until the 23rd September and Mercury, in retrograde motion here until the 22nd September, keeping one eye on the rear view mirror while the professional confidence keeps the element of fate in play, these are some of the most crucial days possible on the work front. So much so, that the first 10 days of September can be seen as the point where everything until now has lead up to and everything from now will lead on from. With Venus having just left on the 30th August, a solar eclipse on the 1st September creating the potential for major new beginnings and the money and professional gods holding the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts, focus on how you play the game. The real benefits will take months and even years to fully reveal themselves.
Until the very closing days of August things were looking pretty lacklustre and your professional year was in a slow patch with the professional gods nowhere to be seen. Since Mars left your work sector in the early days of the New Year you've been in charge of keeping the wheels turning on the work front, while a push in the early months saw the professional gods working to gain as much traction on the career front as possible, until they too left. Yet this month there are two things happening, the first is what you can always expect to happen at this time of year and the second the utterly extraordinary. The expected is that with the Sun always returning to your work sector around the 23rd September each year, this is always going to be the month when the solar spotlight will fall onto your work situation, matters and options. The unexpected is not that is Venus already here, having returned on the 30th August to get your heart in the game and ball rolling, helping you prepare for lucky Jupiter's return on the 9th September and that is game changing. Jupiter returns to kick off your biggest, most expansive and potentially successful year for work growth in over a decade and while he'll leave next October, support will continue to keep the wheels turning until December 2017. With Mars returning to your career sector in November this kicks off a chain of events that between them, will see your work and/or career sectors continuously active through to August 2018. While you've had a chance over recent months to take your professional hat off, Venus' return means you'll need to keep it on for the next three years, without a break. This makes it important, before Jupiter returns on the 9th September, for the first time since 2005, that you take a breath and spend those days listening to your heart.
Any month that plays host to a lunar eclipse in your career sector and Venus' return to your work sector is going to be a good month, but also a month when the work/life balance issues of the past can finally be resolved once and for all, while at the same time revealing their true value. Already, before you even moved into the new week, you were coming to suspect that the work/life balance issues you've been facing as your home and professional lives continued to battle each other, weren't challenges to be overcome and were in reality something to aspire to. As the planets start one by one leaving your home and family sector and especially once Jupiter leaves on the 9th September and the Sun on the 23rd September, this is going to take the pressure off the planets moving through your career sector and as a result work/life balance tensions are going to drop off dramatically. The lunar eclipse on the 17th September will be the last real battle of any consequence. The timing of this eclipse is crucial, bringing the element of fate into play, especially when it comes to your long term professional dreams. Any Full Moon in your career sector has the potential to bring career and professional matters to a head, turning and/or tipping point, but as a lunar eclipse this brings the element of fate into play and creates the potential for major developments. Why the timing is so crucial is that this falls a week to the day before Venus' return to your work sector on the 24th September, an event that has both immediate and long term consequences. With the Sun not returning until the 23rd October to throw the solar spotlight on your work situation, matters and options, this brings Venus into play and opens the doors to new work opportunities almost a month before they are due to open, but in time to maximise the fallout from the lunar eclipse in your career sector a week earlier.
From the get go you can expect a busy month, but a month where the wheels are not only due to run more smoothly, but everything you've been working on and towards for the last six months will start coming together. September is not usually a particularly active point in your professional year and from past experience you know that March and April are when the spotlight falls on career matters, with the busiest month of any year usually being November and December. The reality is, that with Uranus in your career sector until March 2019 and Saturn in your work sector until December 2017 taking your professional or work hats off at any time is not going to be an option, with the wheels turning on both fronts all year. However, with Uranus in retrograde motion in your career sector and Saturn in your work sector, recent months have seen the wheels not only turning slowly, but in reverse. While Mars' return to your work sector in March brought an attempt to push work matters forward, with Saturn in retrograde motion he didn't enjoy much success or gain any real ground, so retrograded back out until the conditions were more favourable. This made Mars' return early last month a sign that the professional gods were gearing up for a more active phase, but it wasn't until Saturn turned direct on the 13th August that the handbrakes were released, the lights turned green and forward momentum was possible. It was Mars and Saturn's alignment in the second half of August, the first in your work sector in 28 years, that saw your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit merge with the power to move mountains if you have to. With Mars not leaving your work sector until the 27th September and knowing it will be another three decades before he meets up with Saturn here again, the warrior planet of the cosmos will be cracking the whip and packing as much into his final 27 days as possible. Expect a busy month, but also a month where some real breakthroughs are possible, clearing a path for the professional gods who will seek to benefit from this over the coming months. With Saturn not leaving until next December, he'll keep the wheels turning and whatever momentum is created this month.
While this is a month that belongs to the money gods, coming together to make the most of lucky Jupiter's final days in your income sector and the support to keep the wheels turning until early next month, the professional gods are playing an integral part of this. Any doubt that this is a month more about money matters will be shattered when a solar eclipse in your income sector on the 1st September creates the potential for major and fateful new beginnings and opportunities, just eight days before lucky Jupiter's departure on the 9th September. However, also obvious is the solidarity between the professional and money gods and the extremes to which this is displayed from the get go. For the 1st September doesn't just play host to a solar eclipse in your income sector, but this is Mercury's first full day in retrograde motion here and also Ceres' first full day in retrograde motion in your career sector. With Pluto in retrograde motion in your work sector until the 27th September and Mercury until the 22nd September, this creates a situation where major new income opportunities open up, at a time when the doors are open to the past, second chances and untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts. Until now Pluto, in retrograde motion in your work sector since April has played support for lucky Jupiter in your income sector, but with Jupiter leaving on the 9th September and the Sun on the 23rd September, this major income chapter is coming to an end. As the money gods exit stage left, they'll 'high five' the professional gods, telling them that it's their turn next, which will be with a vengeance from the 27th September. For the 27th September is not just the day that Pluto turns direct in your work sector, but the day that Mars arrives, creating a dramatic turning of the tides. When the planets of war and revolution meet up in your work sector things happen, with the tide turning and the pace picking up dramatically, all within the space of just a few hours.
While you have to wait until November for the professional gods to show up in any significant numbers, with just the Moon's monthly visits to your work sector and career sectors keeping the wheels turning, this is one month when that works to your advantage. The most active months of any year for work matters and especially new opportunities is always January and February, which is when the Sun moves through your work sector, shining the solar spotlight on your situation, matters and options and with a support crew giving you a chance to get work matters up to speed. So the fact that Mars is returning in November means you're in for the kind of support that you should experience until early next year, but is instead the start of something that will take until 2018 to fully play out. However, while this is something to look forward to and prepare for, right now this is a month that is more about having your money hat on, trusting that professional matters will soon come along for the ride. In one case this is akin to putting the carriage before the horse, in that usually it's a case of first build it professionally and then the money will follow, but this year it's a little of both. As far as your normal allocation of planetary activity in your work sector and career sectors in any year you've already had it and at the time the gods promised, that if you built it professionally the money will come. That promise is being fulfilled this month, thanks to lucky Jupiter's return to your income sector on the 9th September, kicking off your luckiest and most potentially lucrative income year in over a decade. What the professional gods will do in November is take a look at the income growth possible, and send their A team onto the field in the form of Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos. Until then it's the Moon's visit to your work sector from the 13th September to the 15th September and to your career sector from the 21st September to the 23rd September that will give the professional gods a voice during what, by then will be some of the best income conditions in over a decade.
Any month that contains a lunar eclipse in your work sector is destined to be a fateful month and while the lunar eclipse on the 17th September brings the potential for a breakthrough and a chance to bring work matters to a head, turning and/or tipping point, it's the conditions at the time that make all the difference. While, until your old solar year runs its course on the 23rd September and the Sun returns to begin your birthday month and new solar year, you're likely to find the wind taken out of your sails, but at the same time that work tension is likely to gradually ease back, you'll notice an unexpected breeze filling your sails. It is lucky Jupiter's return to Libra on the 9th September that kicks off what can be considered your luckiest and most expansive year in over a decade, but is in reality the start of a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion. Jupiter expands everything and especially your belief in yourself and in what's possible, along with a chance for major new beginnings. From the get go Jupiter will look around to see what he has to work with, what areas of your life are already sitting there, just waiting for his expansive influence. A lunar eclipse in your work sector just eight days after Jupiter's return is certainly going to get his attention and with a chance over recent months to revisit your dreams and aspirations, this is one lunar eclipse that could bring work matters to a major and game changing head, turning and/or tipping point. While the lunar eclipse peaks on the 17th September, with the Moon returning two days earlier, there is a need to have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground from the 15th September. In the meantime, the Moon's visit to your career sector from the 23rd September to the 26th September is a chance to get your overall professional bearings. Returning on the same day the Sun returns to Libra, this will ensure that as your birthday month and new solar year kick off your professional instincts are sharp from the get go.
When the Sun left your career sector on the 23rd August this may have taken the solar spotlight off your career and professional situation and matters, even without the fact that this was just nine days before you moved into the new month, there is zero danger of losing your professional momentum anytime soon. There are three reasons for that. The first reason is that this was never a danger for with the Sun, Mercury and Venus only returning to your career sector once a year, they return to not only bring things up to speed and make things happen, but to create the kind of momentum that will keep your professional year moving. With a clear sense of direction, your head in the game and your professional goals and aspirations banked, this is always the point in the year when the real journey begins. The second reason why there is zero reason why things won't suddenly drop and is a guarantee just in case the first reason fails, is the friendships forged over recent months between income, work and career forces. With Uranus in your work sector until March 2019 and Saturn in your income sector until December 2017, but Mars continuing to fuel an urge to take a sledgehammer to any glass ceilings in your way, work and income forces have taken career forces under their wing. The third reason is more subtle, in that for Scorpio's while the month of the Monkey, the time the Sun moved through your career sector, is always going to be an auspicious month for career and professional matters, for the first time in 12 years we are in the Year of the Monkey. All the professional gods have done is put all their cards on the table, with plenty of support this month to keep the game in play. Beginning the month with the Moon in your career sector will ensure your professional instincts are sharp from the get go, returning from the 26th September to the 28th September, this time ensuring you have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground as Mars leaves your income sector on the 27th September with income, work and career forces coming together again.
You are experiencing two realities this month, one the very ordinary and the other the very extraordinary, one having more immediate and mundane consequences, the other having the power and the potential to shape the next decade of your professional life. What you have this month is an overlapping of an annual update, with the end of a major point in your professional year, bringing the past, present and future together. The ordinary is having the Sun in your career sector and the solar spotlight on your career and professional situation, matters and options. The Sun has always and will always spend the first three weeks of September in your career sector, so to have the solar spotlight here and your professional hat on at this time of year is not only the norm, it's impossible to have it any other way. Even Venus, who left on the 30th August but not before fuelling your professional confidence, desires and expectations and Mercury, who is keeping your head in the game all month are part of the package deal. That's the ordinary, now for the extraordinary. For one thing you don't usually begin September with a solar eclipse in your career sector on Day 1, creating the potential for major and fateful new beginnings, nor is lucky Jupiter usually here. What you have as you move into September is a very ordinary, annual professional update playing out just as Jupiter's yearlong visit to your career sector is coming to an end, on the 9th September. With Venus already gone, Jupiter leaving on the 9th September and the Sun on the 23rd September, this should all be over by the of the month, except that is for a twist of fate, coincidence or maybe divine intervention. On the 31st August Mercury, who should have been long gone turned, going back over ground already covered. With Ceres having turned retrograde in your work sector on the same day, the 1st September is their first full day in retrograde motion. With Mercury in retrograde motion until the 22nd September, Pluto until the 27th September and Ceres all month, a month dominated by the potential for major new professional beginnings also has the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts.
While there has been little if any support from the professional gods over recent months or that you've been in a professional lull is not in doubt, but this is anything but unusual and is part of the pattern that every professional year must go through. With the Sun always leaving your work sector around the 22nd June each year but not returning to your career sector until the 23rd October, this creates a four month gap that gives work matters a chance to run their course, allows things to settle and in general creates a firebreak before new career developments open up, which they will always do in the later days of September each year. So to have the solar spotlight shift onto your career and professional situation, matters and options couldn't be more ordinary. However, while that is still the case, that doesn't account for the extraordinary conditions opening up this month or the fact that from the moment you move into September this has already begun. Venus returned to your career sector on the 30th August and not due to leave until the 24th September, during the Sun's first full day here, she'll have someone to hand the baton to. However, she won't be handing the baton to the Sun and from her return on the 31st August to her departure on the 24th September everything is set to change, turning your whole professional game on its heels and playing host to the birth of your most powerful professional year in over a decade. With Venus on board this allows you to begin the month with your professional confidence, desires and expectations running high, a little too high if truth be told. Venus is acting more like a Snake Oil Salesman, trying to sell you a bill of goods that looks too good to be true and you know what they say about things that are too good to be true? Well scrap that, because if anything Venus is underselling things, knowing that lucky Jupiter is just days away. Your professional world changes on the 9th September when lucky Jupiter returns to your career sector for the first time since 2005 and between then and his departure in October 2017 lays your biggest, most potentially successful and expansive professional year in over a decade. It all starts with what your heart is telling you in the early days of the month, with a need to believe it, even if it feels more like pipedreams and wishful thinking.
From Mars' departure from your career sector on the 3rd August to Venus' return on the 24th September you have a chance to take a break, let things settle and as the warrior planet of the cosmos wrapped up his longest visit in two decades, this is more important than you could possibly realise. Mars first returned to your career sector in the early days of January to fire up your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit and while this gave your professional year a major advantage in those critical early months, nine months down the track we shouldn't still be talking about him, in anything but a need to look back on your early professional resolutions. But while Mars did leave in early March, for the first time in 79 years he retrograded back in for a rare, once in a life time double dip visit and it's that second visit that only ran its course early last month, leaving you with a wealth of experience, momentum and having spent more time fuelling your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit than in the past decade combined. Not due to return until 2018 Mars has left behind a rich legacy that is now ripe for the picking, with the first planet to return and take up from where the warrior planet of the cosmos was always destined to steal much of the glory. When Venus returns on the 24th September to not only fuel your professional confidence, desires and expectations but trigger the laws of attraction, she will find not only the framework already in place, but returning a month before the Sun she's able to fully exploit the potential already created. Working through the laws of attraction Venus is always able to attract professional opportunities and attention your way and before that her time here often creates some of the best potential weeks of any year. It is likely to be that the most successful outcomes and consequences of Mars' epic visit to your career sector will come after he's left and are most likely to come during Venus' time here, from the 24th September to 18th October. The Moon's visit from the 6th September to the 8th September is a chance to sharpen your professional instincts and get your bearings, but also look back over the professional year to date and start lining up for Venus' return.
Normally September is not a significant month in terms of your professional year as a whole and even if it is, it's likely to be because, while the Sun will always leave your work sector around the 23rd August each year, it's not uncommon to find Venus or Mercury still tying up loose ends. However, when the Sun left your work sector last month this brought all the planetary activity for the year to a close, but that still doesn't make this a low key month and if anything, you have arrived at one of the most powerful of your professional year. This is no ordinary year so it's only right that this should be no ordinary September, but what you have is a chance to put your professional game on the map. If last month was the month where everything until now has lead up to and everything from now will lead on from, then this is the month where the real journey begins. While Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos has spent an extraordinary amount of time in your career sector this year, it was only when he returned for a double dip visit early last month, just 10 days before Saturn's direct turn on the 13th September that everything started to come together. It was their alignment in the later days of August, the first here in 28 years and last for another three decades, that brought Mars' professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit together with Saturn's unstoppable force, giving you the power to move mountains if you have to. With Mars not due to leave your career sector until the 27th September and Venus returning next month to exploit the potential created this month, the best and most empowered weeks of your professional year are right in front of you. With Saturn not leaving until the end of next year, with guaranteed support to keep the wheels turning, this isn't a month about bringing anything home, but getting things moving and making things happen. What you will need is a professional goal or aspiration that you can channel this into, with the Moon's move through from the 28th September to the 11th September sharpening your professional instincts and providing the valuable clues, hunches and insights needed. In the meantime, the early and later days of the month will give you an intuitive read on work matters.
