Hi there Aquarius! Saturn and Lilith will be scrutinising your friendships in September, and they’re expecting loyalty and integrity from everyone in your social circle! This connection persists until mid-November and is one of total honesty and straight-talking. During this period it is likely that fair-weather friends will get your back up more than usual, and as a result of these feelings, you could easily find yourself clearing these people away from your life. It might be a rather lonely period too, inasmuch as you will feel that your aims and desires don’t match those of the people you are sharing your world with. Saturn isn’t a people person and Lilith needs to be free to do as she pleases whether anyone likes it or not, so for a while it will seem as though being yourself and following your own path comes at a cost. The new Moon of the 20th forms a tense square with the Saturn/Lilith conjunction, hence new beginnings here could initially be painful, as you recognise a need to cut those redundant friendship ties before you can move on.
Mercury dips back into your relationship sector for the first ten days of the month, offering you a chance to put right any wrongs which his recent retrograde period has contributed to. In general it’s a fantastic period for smoothing over disagreements, listening to what your loved one has to say and making headway in tricky conversations and discussions. Mars and Mercury in aspect until the 5th suggest a very assertive start to these conversations; take care that words don’t wound during this period, your impatience at a lack of understanding or action could lead to sarcasm or excessive criticism. Mercury connects with Uranus too at this time, so expect unusual revelations and confessions of all kinds from partners. With the positive elements involved what you hear should be interesting and exciting, not stressful or shocking!
The Sun offers you a helping hand with finances for the days up to the 22nd of September; this is a very positive period for paying off debts, securing a loan or asking for support regarding your bills. You need to be in control of this area of your life now, therefore if times are hard you might decide to take on extra work to get yourself back on track. The full Moon of the 6th offers you a chance to solve a financial problem in a creative and original way. Neptune creates challenges, however, between the 1st and 10th and again after the 19th when he opposes Mars here. Financial matters will be fraught with confusion at these times, you may not even be aware of exactly what is owed or what bills need to be paid. A sense of denial in especially difficult problems may prevail. A loved one could also throw in a curve ball now as hidden information about their income comes to light.
Your spiritual journey hits a few obstacles this month as Pluto slows down in your house of psychic affairs, ready to turn direct on the 29th. Don’t try too hard to fight those demons, tale a break and relax your mind; you can resume that important self-improvement work as we head towards October. An honest and transformational connection between Pluto and Mercury from the 17th to 23rd is extremely positive for healing and meditation. The north node currently opposing the natal Sun of water-carriers born around the 8th to 14th of February is also urging you to push through your comfort zone to experiences which will enhance your soul progress. Enjoy your month!
