LEO

If you want to change your life, then you first need to change the way you are thinking. Many Leos know that something has to be done differently, as you recover from the madness that was July and August. Someone or something has to go. Something new must start. A new direction must be taken. You can do it – but to make it happen, you have to take action. Start by deciding what you want from the next 19 years. Remember that thinking positively can move mountains. Financially, there are beginnings and endings forecast this month, possibly not in that order.

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 LEO, you’re going to have the chance to completely change things related to study, travel, publishing and The Great Cosmic Quest. Expect the unexpected in these areas. Anything can happen and probably will. True!

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.

Want some good news? After last month’s retrograde, communications planet Mercury is now resuming normal transmission and going forwards again… So? Things should be less complicated from here on in, for a while at least. For you, Mercury has been going backwards in your FIRST HOUSE – that means your entire life has been subject to madness and mayhem as Mercury has played his funny little tricks (not) all over you. If life has been chaotic beyond belief of late, 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. There will be fewer crossed wires, less drama and much, much less to-ing and fro-ing.

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…

What would you think of someone who thought they were super special just because they had a flashy sports car? Exactly. So make sure you don’t become like that now – as Mars moves through your 2nd house, you can start to identify too strongly with What You Have rather than with Who You Are. Take charge of your finances, but don’t let them take charge of you. Be very careful re overspending and impulse buying over the next few weeks. Best advice: Work on your self-esteem. Make a list of your good points and start to appreciate yourself. The good news is that life is about to slow down a little and you’ll have a chance to relax…soon.

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 at www.moonmessages.com/freechart).

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 second house of cash, property and possessions. On the one hand, you do need to watch yourself, if you know you have a tendency to spend more than you should. You could find yourself feeling very flush now – but be sure you can cover your basic expenses before you go lashing out cash on something which has taken your fancy but which you maybe should be hesitating over. Your tastes might be more expensive than usual but before you give into your desires, double check with your accountant or whoever else is likely to go “Tsk tsk” if and when you spend up big on things you don’t really need! The up side of this Venus cycle is that you can expect more financial opportunities to come your way. Keep your eyes peeled and you could find the period lucrative. Also use this four-week period as a chance to work on your self-esteem. Don’t just think about that – do it. Start by making a list of what you know is Uniquely Wonderful about you. Seriously. Then ask your best friend what he/she thinks is Uniquely Wonderful about you. Try it.

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).

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…

Here’s a funny thing; as much as you might love your beloved or dream of being with your ‘perfect’ partner, the skies right now have other ideas. The more you stand on your own two feet now, the happier and more fulfilled you are going to be (whether you’re attached or single). Also this month, money starts to make more sense.
