How are you, Sagittarius?! The Sun’s presence in your career sector for the first three weeks in September is providing plenty of opportunities for you to show off your skills to anyone who’s watching! This is a ‘look at me’ transit, you will feel a strong urge to demonstrate how professional, reliable and authoritative you are. It won’t do to sit on the sidelines now; you will also find it harder than usual to take orders, particularly if the person giving them doesn’t impress you. Your self-esteem at this time will be closely linked to your ability to prove your worth in working life, therefore rejection or insubordination will be difficult to bounce back from. The new Moon of the 20th is wonderful for applying for a new post; your work may also take you into the public eye in some way at this time; use this opportunity to draw attention to your unique creative abilities.
With the north node continuing to push through your house of travel and learning, there is much to discover about new people, places and subjects at this time of your life. Centaurs have a natural wanderlust which is often pushed aside by everyday responsibilities, and the universe is sending you some fabulous opportunities now to get out and explore the world. There are close links to your spiritual development here, therefore the journey you make does not necessarily have to involve suitcases and passports, it could just as easily be a mental, emotional or spiritual one. Venus and the north node are in conjunction between the days of the 9th and 19th, so look out for an exciting new acquaintance during these days who will set you on a new path of discovery. Love on a trip, learning course or with someone from a different country is also likely.
The full Moon meets retrograde Neptune and Chiron in your house of family matters on the 6th of September, and there is plenty of work to be done at this time on healing family rifts. Skeletons will be flying out of that closet, as secrets are revealed and hidden resentments find an opportune moment to express themselves! Neptune opposes the Sun during the days of the 1st to 10th too, a difficult period for establishing boundaries with a pushy relative, whose main aim seems to be to manoeuvre themselves into a position of indispensability in your domestic world. After the 17th Neptune will also be in opposition with Mars, right through to the first week in October, and this aspect makes for a confusing period of not really knowing who is telling the truth in a tense family dispute. You will get to the bottom of this confusion, but not until later next month.
Pluto turns direct in your financial sector on the 29th, and until then you will feel the strain of his loss of pace, as money matters seem onerous and unsolvable. You will probably feel as though too many people are having a say in your financial affairs as September progresses, which will generate a feeling that you are not in control of this part of your world. Pluto and Mercury team up between the 17th and 23rd, a positive period for using your persuasive skills to secure a new business contract or pay rise. This connection is also excellent for getting to the bottom of accounts problems or financial messes; there is a great deal of honesty and no-nonsense energy around which will enable you to cut through the red tape to the heart of the problem. Have a great September!
