Between them, Venus because she is running behind and Mercury because he is running ahead of schedule, get the month off to a good start on the romantic and relationship fronts. Held back by a retrograde turn late last year, Venus is still running behind schedule and that meant that she was late to return to your romantic sector this year but also late to leave. While the Sun has been and gone, the planet of love is here until 5th September and she is on a mission to make her final days as romantically charged as possible. Venus' departure won't end all planetary activity on the romantic front, with the dwarf planet Ceres staying on until 29th September. While more focused on understanding your heart's needs and priorities, that awareness will make it easy to keep the spirit of romance alive.
Meanwhile, it is Mercury's early return to your relationship sector late last month that saw the planet of communication return so far ahead of the Sun that he will be forced to wait. This will result in a retrograde turn on 10th September, something that will offer a chance to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice until retrograding back out less than 12 hours after the Sun returns on 23rd September. This is the point in every year when the solar spotlight shifts onto your relationship sector but this year, having had Mercury here for four weeks, working to get the communication lines open.
Mercury will have left by the time the Moon not only returns on 26th September but as a New Moon, though with a chance to benefit from having the planet of communication here for so long. A New Moon is an opportunity for new beginnings and there is a lot to look forward to. While a direct turn will see Mercury return to your relationship sector for a second visit next month it is Venus, the planet of love's return on 29th September that will begin some of the best weeks on the relationship front of any year. Venus returns on the same day that Ceres leaves your romantic sector, with the spirit of romance at the start of the month being channelled into your relationships by the end of the month.
