The first month of this year’s is full of energetically potent astral aspects and most of them are very dynamic. For the natives who are trying to get luck back on their side, there will be many opportunities in this regard, but there will also be people for whom these cosmic configurations can be overwhelming. But let’s take a closer look at what they really have in store for us:
On the first day of September, Mercury from the sign of Virgo adheres to a harmonious trine aspect with the Pluto retrograde in Capricorn. Against the background of this astral configuration, the Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) will enjoy greater productivity and an increased ability to cope with stress and fatigue at work. There’s also the possibility that these signs will be more active on the social scene, while also forging new business partnerships.
The next day, the opposition of Venus from Cancer with Saturn retrograde in Capricorn is perfected, which is why the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) may experience challenges in relation to their friends, family or life partners. In order to make sure that conflicts do not arise, these Sun signs must be a lot more careful about how they handle other people’s feelings. That way, no one will suffer due to gestures or words that might turn out to be offensive.
On or around September 3, we experience the influence of another harmonious trine aspect between Mercury in Virgo and Saturn retrograde in Capricorn. Again, the Earth signs find it easier to cope with whatever life throws at them, with the support and information they have accesss to. Other signs may also sense that communication is less emotionally tiring than usual. This astral aspect allows them to use their intuition to learn more about other people’s intentions.
The next day, Venus in the sign of Cancer forms a tense square aspect with Mars in Aries. This means that Cardinal signs are likely to experience more relational problems. If no attempt has been made to solve them, it is now absolutely necessary for these signs (and any other signs facing such challenges) to find ways to reason calmly with their life partners and those around them. Otherwise, these signs are likely to go through a rough time in the romance department.
From September 5 onwards, Mercury transits the sign of Libra, thus leaving Virgo, its nocturnal domicile. Its journey through this sign encourages us to choose our words more carefully, but we may miss valuable opportunities to express ourselves if we spend too much time trying to find the best ways in which to verbalize our thoughts. Therefore, it is important to find some sort of balance and curb our perfectionism to some extent. Otherwise, we might regret it.
From September 6 onwards, Venus moves through the sign of Leo, which indicates that we will display more affection in relation to those we care deeply about. If during its transit through Cancer we relied on displays of affection in our interactions with people, this time we resort to extensive proof of loyalty. Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) are more inclined to experience the full spectrum of emotions associated with this transit, which helps them in their love life.
From September 9, Mars retrogrades through its diurnal domicile, the sign of Aries. As a result, we are more prone to give in to passive-agressive tendencies, to gestures and words that are unbefitting of who we really are. Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) are the likeliest to display this type of attitude, but this does not mean that other Sun signs will not resort to a similar behaviour under certain circumstances. For this reason, it is important to be more careful how we treat others.
On or around September 15, a tense square aspect is perfected between Venus in Leo and Uranus retrograde in Taurus. This indicates Fixed signs’ (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) relationships may experience some sudden transformations or change the direction in which they are headed. However, they lack the stability these Sun signs desperately need. A little spontaneity does not hurt, but there is a risk of going too far, without the possibility of reverting to an earlier phase.
On or around September 17, 21, and 23, Mercury in Libra forms tense squares with Jupiter, Pluto retrograde, and Saturn retrograde in Capricorn, which indicates that Cardinal signs may yet again experience communication problems. Or perhaps the existing ones may become more serious and difficult to solve against the background of these astral configurations. For this reason, more attention is recommended when we choose our words and try to verbalize our thoughts.
On or around September 24, the same Mercury in Libra forges an opposition with Mars retrograde in Cancer. Cardinal signs are likely to experience an equally tense social climate. The stars have in store for them plenty of situations whereby these signs are informed that they need to seriously evaluate their attitude towards others and that they may have a lot to lose in the future if they do not work harder on their behavior. Things are not moving in the right direction.
On September 27, Mercury enters the sign of Scorpio, which means we are likely to be more introspective in the next few weeks. We also tend to talk less and send more signals, which can be misinterpreted by those around us. For this reason, it is recommended that we make our intentions, desires and needs clear, especially if we want some relationships to evolve in a certain direction. Failure to do so may result in misunderstandings or irreconciable differences.
On or around September 28, Venus in Leo forms a harmonious trine aspect with Mars retrograde in Aries, which means that Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) experience novelty in their social lives. Relationships that have become monotonous are revitalized under the influence of this configuration, and the natives who are not involved in a love relationship may meet someone interesting. However, there is a risk that these new connections or changes will not be long-lasting.
The next day, Mars retrograde in Aries forms a tense square aspect with Saturn in Capricorn, which puts Cardinal signs back on the map and not in a good way. They are yet again reckless and prone to make spontaneous uninspired decisions, which may ultimately lead to limitations and obstacles. Whatever choice we make during this period, it is important to think about the consequences in order to minimize the likelihood of situations evolving in an undesirable direction.
As can be deduced from the paragraphs above, September is not the month to offer a smooth transition to the latter part of 2020. Quite to the contrary, as we might be faced with challenges or tense situations we have not yet managed to successfully tackle. For this reason, it is essential that we are mentally ready to apply hard work and diligence over the first month of this year’s fall.
