CANCER

You’re in a great position this month as the fortuitous Jupiter/Uranus alignment boosts your Home Zone and your Work Zone. So whether you work or not, it looks as though there are going to be some very positive developments for you in your private life and/or when it comes to your brilliant career (or when it comes to whatever it is you’re known for, even if that’s about you being an adventurer or dancer or baker or anything else!) There could also be good news for a family member. As well, as Mercury retrograde ends, you should feel way less confused by life. Bonus!

BEFORE WE GO FURTHER… SOME INFORMATION FOR ALL THE SIGNS

So after a tumultuous eclipse month when the world at times seemed to have gone totally mad, September promises more peaceful times, in the news and for us all personally.

The September skies are almost 100% positive. So does this mean a 100% positive month?

Of course not. There are still people out there who are getting planetary hits on their personal charts. However overall we can expect life to settle down a bit on the coming four weeks.

Notably, Mercury will end its retrograde on September 5. That’s good news for anyone who has been holding off on doing anything under the reverse cycle. It also means people should be back in business, moving forwards, and returning emails and phone calls! There will be fewer misunderstanding and – most importantly, perhaps – you will be in a positive to act based on the info you have gathered about a situation which has been puzzling you.

The way forward should become clearer as the month unfolds. (Mercury retrograde is often all about thinking things over so the answer to a question becomes clear…)

As we settle down post the eclipses, consider what the past few weeks have shown you. Where do you know you need to make a change? It could be anything – from changing your diet or health habits to moving house, starting or ending a relationship or anything else.

For a few years there, change was hard and felt very much “do or die!” That cycle is over now and we should find there is less struggling and more ease when it comes to changing our lives as we wish to.

Let’s go into it more deeply…

One of the very main themes for September is that is the ideal time to make changes. Reason being, the planet of radical changes and 180 degree turnarounds, aka Uranus, is being triggered. If you want to do something differently this month, you are in luck —

YOU HAVE THE FULL SUPPORT OF THE HEAVENS TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE THIS MONTH!

For you as a CANCERIAN, you’re going to have the chance to completely change your career! If you’ve always wanted to work for yourself, or you’ve had a yen to work in TV or on the Net, this transit is especially good for you. Break out! Do the thing which is going to make you feel free! (But make sure you have enough to pay your bills before you do anything rash!)

These are the standout dates for change, no matter which sign you are:

1. September 2 – now is the time to push for change as Mars and Uranus connect harmoniously. Mars is the planet of anger and drive and Uranus is the planet of radical changes. When they connect like this, radical change is possible anyway but even more so if you really fight for it.

2. September 18 – as the planet of love and abundance, Venus, meets change-maker Uranus, in a harmonious link, the stage is totally set for positive developments linked to romance and riches. Agitate for what you want in a loving way and you could shake things up.

3. September 28 – this is a standout day which gets a whole section to itself later in your September stars – suffice to say here that is a hugely positive day welcome developments and positive progress. Jupiter and Uranus are making a rare alignment and it’s 100% worth tapping into if you want to change something in your life. For more info, read on…

MERCURY GOES DIRECT

Meanwhile, in what will definitely come as welcome news to those of you who are not keen on Mercury messes, Mercury retrograde ends on September 5. Before we go any further, please let’s get one thing straight; Mercury retrograde is not in any way bad luck or even bad. Mostly it’s just annoying.

Mercury retrograde is the process on the right. Mercury retrograde will always take us all on divergent paths we had no intention of treading. Old friends and foes, not to mention lovers, come back into view. Things – writing projects, especially (or is that just me?) get done and redone and done again. What starts under one Mercury retrograde cycle can sometimes be finished under a subsequent Mercury retrograde cycle. There is no denying, though, Mercury retrograde can be a right royal astrological pain in the butt. If you have been feeling confused, if people arent calling you back, if they’re taking you the wrong way, if you feel like you’re underwater talking a different language to those around you, then you’ve felt the latest Mercury retrograde cycle. But as said, it ends September 5, in the sign of Leo. Here is what the Mercury direct in Leo cycle means for you – note that Mercury will soon move into Virgo after the end of the retrograde.

Good news! After last month’s retrograde, communications planet Mercury is now resuming normal transmission and going forwards again… so some of the chaos is about to ease up. For you, Mercury has been going backwards in your SECOND HOUSE of cash, property and possessions. If you’ve been going two steps forwards and one step back where any or all of those subjects are concerned, now you know why! This weekend, as Mercury changes directions, you can expect (or at least allow for the possibility) one last blast of mayhem. And after that? It’s smoother sailing. Your financial statements will start to make more sense, there will be fewer annoying glitches when it comes to dealing with money, and if you’re trying to buy or sell something, you can expect a lot less weirdness.

WHERE YOU CAN EXPECT TO BE MORE MOTIVATED…

Also note that on the same day that Mercury ends its retrograde, marvellous Mars moves into Virgo for the first time in two years. Wherever Mars go, energy and action follows. Here’s where that’s taking place for you…

The good news is that your mind is now as sharp as a tack. The not-so-good news for anyone you don’t like the look of is that your tongue is also razor-like. Mars is in your communications zone so you can expect to perform well mentally and in writing. You will relish the chance of a verbal dual, you will cut people down to size with a few well-chosen words and you should find it easy (at last) to catch up on all those old emails. Want the courage to send that saucy SMS? You’ve got it. Just remember than Mars is the planet of anger too, though. Remind yourself 10 times a day to speak calmly and respectfully.

WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE…

So after the ups and downs of the past month with its second-in-a-row Leo eclipse and all the attendant mad energies, September will be less crazy. Venus, the planet of love, in particular, will be in great shape which augurs well for romance (and riches, since Venus is also about luxuries).

Remember that astrology works on the “as above, so below” theory as first expounded by the thrice-great Hermes Trismegistus. Complicated name but a simple theory; when all is well in the stars, all is better on earth. Here are the loved-up dates for September, for all the signs:

September 13 – Venus and Saturn harmonise which is great news for anyone and everyone. When these two get together like this, love feels more stable and solid. It’s also pretty good news for finances too and a great day to make a deal.

September 15 – will most certainly be some people’s lucky day as loving and luxurious Venus connects with fortunate Jupiter. If you have a wish you want to make about love, this is the right time to make it, the Moon’s waning cycle notwithstanding.

September 18 – could be some wonderful surprises and turnarounds to do with love (or money) around about today as Venus connects with chaotic Uranus who turns things on their head. Loved-up? It’s a great day to surprise your lover. Not but would like to be? An excellent day to go online and make a date with someone who appeals but who is nothing like your usual ‘type’.

September 20 – Venus moves into Virgo. Love is less showy, more down-to-earth. Especially good news for Virgos and Pisceans and people who have one of those two signs rising (found here).

September 29 – a Venus/Neptune lovely link under the waxing Moon makes today the most likely to be the most romantic day and night of the year. However there is a caveat. If you’re involved with someone you know is not on the level, take care! Neptune can be as deceptive as it is dreamy! If your love is true, make it a night of romance.

Here’s here Venus will be for you once she moves into Virgo on September 20.

Venus will be moving through your third house of communications, thoughts and Your Every Day life. This is a wonderful transit if life has been a little tough over the past few days or even weeks. For one thing, if you’ve been working too hard and/or worrying too much to enjoy yourself, that phase is about to end. In fact, you can expect to start feeling quite sociable now. If you’re single and looking for love, you’d do well to accept any and all invitations coming your way now. People are going to be extra drawn to you as Venus gives you the gift of the Charming Gab – your words are going to be more seductive to Someone Else’s ears than ever. For that reason, if you want to tell someone how much you care for them, the coming four weeks are the ideal time. Whatever else happens, you can expect to have Love On The Brain. Also this month, pay attention to those around you – you may not have realised how much love there is in your life, especially in your immediate environment. Take no one’s love for granted! This Venus cycle is also good news if you either wish you could spend more time with your siblings (the chance should arise) or if you’ve had a falling out with a brother or sister and want to make up. Extend the olive branch.

Note that Venus is not the only planet in Virgo this month. In fact, by the time we move towards the end of the month we will have FOUR planets in Virgo – the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars. What this does is it puts a lot of emphasis on wherever Virgo is in your chart.

Because the overall astrology action for September is very positive (there are only two squares/clashes) it’s safe to say that wherever Virgo is for you is going to be subject to positive energies.

Here’s a run down for what it means for all the signs – do read your Rising Sign if you know it as you will get even more insight! (If you don’t know your Rising Sign but you wish you did, visit here).

Virgo – expect positive events related to your 1st house: your appearance and image; self-identity; how you come across to others.

Scorpio – expect positive events related to your 11th house: friends; networks; social circles; hopes and wishes.

Sagittarius – expect positive events related to your 10th house: your career and ambitions; how you make your mark on the world: what you’re known for; your reputation.

Also … WHERE’S THE MOON?

Here are the Full and New Moon times for the month ahead – make some magic! Use the Full Moon to release upsets and the New Moon to make your wishes.

Full Moon at 14 Pisces
SYDNEY: September 6, 5.02pm
NEW YORK: September 6, 3.02am
LONDON: September 6, 8.02am

Every Full Moon is potentially a very spiritual experience, for those who want to tune into the cosmos. However the September Full Moon is extra-charged, as it takes place right near the planet of dreams and soulmates, mysticism and the Divine, aka Neptune. If you are a meditator, it’s worth setting aside a little time on the morning of September 6, to do a meditation as the Full Moon is exactly Full. Ask yourself as you start to meditate, “what do I need?” and pay attention to the answers which come. A simple mantra for this Full Moon is “So hum…” Click here for your Full Moon Info Sheets.

New Moon at 28 Virgo
SYDNEY: September 20, 3.29pm
NEW YORK: September 20, 1.29am
LONDON: September 20, 6.29am

This New Moon will be best used for taking care of the details which you need to get ticked off your To Do list as you work towards your goals. And if you have yet to formulate your goals, use the New Moon as a time to write down your dreams, ambitions and commitments you’re willing to make. Then think about the details. Virgo loves details. And more lists. Virgo loves lists! Your goal + a bullet point action place is ideal. Click here for your Full Moon Info Sheets.

AND ONE LAST BIT OF INFO IN A NUTSHELL…

Expect a positive month when it comes to your most important relationships. And given how volatile so many of them have been in the past year or so, that has to be good news, right? Do make sure you’re not alienating people you love with your extra fiery temper. (But equally don’t hold on to people whose friendship you’ve outgrown.)
