The nurturing vibration at the start of the month becomes a whirlwind of change and conflict after September 14. That’s when multiple planets start transiting into Libra—and run headlong into Uranus (revolution) and Pluto (transformation). This can create a rocky road for all things Libra, such as relationships, equality, legal matters, artistic pursuits and living a balanced lifestyle. Those of you with placements in early Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn will likely feel the effects of these influences, to some degree.
The main question to ask yourself is: what do I need to change or release so I can move forward—spiritually, mentally, emotionally and/or materially?
Here’s a breakdown of the influences for September…
At the beginning of the month, Earth placements (Sun and Venus in Virgo, Jupiter in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn) and Water placements (Mars in Cancer) favor activities that are practical or helpful.
Then on September 14, Venus leads the procession of planets into Libra. Normally this loving sign would favor romantic trysts, but afflictions from Uranus and Pluto can cause disruptions in relationships mid-month, especially if you need to make some changes in your love life. Mars entering Leo on September 18 (through November 9) can bring out your courage, creativity and self-expression, which will help you deal with any problems that come your way.
Toward the end of the month, Uranus and Pluto do battle with the Sun and Mercury in Libra, which can wreak havoc on communications, travel, legalities and relationships (again!).
Planets in Motion
Multiple retrograde planets—Uranus, Neptune and Pluto—can hinder innovation and economic progress. On the upside, they can help you get in touch with your inner life so you make choices that are right for you. Taking some time for introspection will accelerate the process.
Pluto, at least, turns direct on September 16, which will assist your financial/professional growth.
The Harvest Full Moon in Pisces occurs on September 12, a time for giving thanks for the blessings of the year.
The New Moon in Libra on September 27 merges with brainy Mercury, which favors communications about relationships, fairness, art/beauty or legalities. However, a square from Pluto, as previously mentioned, is sure to cause some subterfuge or power struggles in these areas at the end of the month.
September 2: Sun trine Jupiter inspires activities that are spiritual, practical or creative.
September 8: Mercury opposing Neptune inspires spiritual pursuits, but can cause muddy communications, especially for Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.
