The time of you having to deal with slightly unhinged, unpredictable relationships is slowly but surely coming to an end. If you have learned to allow people to ‘do their thing’ while you patiently wait for them to come back to ‘normal’, you have learned the lessons that the years since 2011 have been teaching you. It’s all about having a live and let live attitude to life now, especially with the people who annoy or upset you the most! Also this month, it’s a great time to rework your daily routines for the good of your health, and to go deeper into your spiritual life.
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.
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 —
For you as a LIBRA, you’re going to have the chance to completely change things when it comes to your love life and the other most important people in your life. People are going to come and go and you’re going to be attracting a lot more “free spirits” into your life during this cycle.
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…
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.
Hallelujah! After last month’s retrograde, communications planet Mercury is now resuming normal transmission and going forwards again… This means the atmosphere is about to be less confusing. For you, Mercury has been going backwards in your ELEVENTH HOUSE of friends. If you’ve been having hassles with your mates over the past few weeks, now you know why! When Mercury’s going backwards here, it can sometimes almost feel like people are trying to misunderstand you! This weekend, as Mercury changes directions, you can expect (or at least allow for the possibility) one last blast of mayhem in the Friends Department. If and when it comes, try to stay cool because after that, life really will flow more easily.
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 for the next few weeks, it’s going to be easier than ever to keep your cool. Having the planet of anger – Mars – buried in your 12th house (as you do right now) means it can actually be annoyingly difficult to confront others. You can’t find your Attack! button so easily. During this phase, you may find yourself feeling increasingly wound-up, especially if your woes are compounded by a feeling that you get no credit for all the hard work you do. Try not to become too resentful. This too shall pass! Best course of action? Yoga, tai chi or chi gung. Seriously.
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.
Venus will be moving through your twelfth house of secrets and sleep. If you find yourself being required to make some sacrifices for someone you love at any point over the next few weeks, do it with pleasure, if you can. This Venus cycle is partly about putting someone else’s needs before your own. You might not get instant thanks for what you do, but the good karma will eventually find its way back to you. On the other hand, be very careful to avoid bad karma now. Especially be careful if you’re thinking about getting involved with someone who is not really available to you. Quell any desires to get involved in any love triangles. Let me put it bluntly: take care before you either have an affair or seduce someone who’s attached elsewhere. You have been warned! Similarly, be careful if you feel like you’re giving or getting mixed messages romantically now – sometimes during this cycle it’s impossible to be CLEAR. Confused by love? Far better to be patient. Being in this cycle means the next Venus cycle sees the love planet in your own sign. And if you think that sounds good, you’re right.
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).

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.
