Happy Birthday Virgo! May all your birthday dreams come true! There is plenty of planetary energy permeating through your sign in September, so it shouldn’t be too hard to turn attention to your dreams and ambitions. The Sun instils in you a super-strong sense of self and faith in your abilities, which will certainly support you in taking on new projects. Push yourself to your limits now and watch what you are really capable of. Mercury and Mars will also meet here between the 11th and 23rd, a fabulous period for asserting yourself in conversations, meetings and correspondence. Topics up for discussion may have already been over talked several times, but that doesn’t matter; it’s how you put your point across now that counts. The new Moon on the 20th is fabulous for fresh starts at a personal level, use this wonderful lunar energy to turn the page and begin a new chapter in your life.
Venus spends the first three weeks of the month hiding away in your house of secrets; this is likely to be a very private time for you in which feelings will not be easily addressed. You may find it especially hard to tolerate public displays of emotion now, as you become rather self-conscious. Secret romances can be a feature of this transit, so don’t be surprised if a new love affair needs to be kept away from the public eye for some reason. A liaison between Venus and the karmic Moon’s nodes from the 9th to 19th is particularly promising for beginning a clandestine relationship or meeting someone mysterious and secretive. Venus also trines unpredictable Uranus between the 14th and 20th, and while this generally positive connection could throw up a few welcome and unexpected declarations of affection from a loved one, the atmosphere will be a volatile one for all things emotion-related, and your deepest, darkest feelings may be revealed by an unthinking friend.
Neptune continues his retrograde journey through your house of partners in September, and on the 6th he is joined by the full Moon, offering you a chance to take a long, deep look at your relationships and how well they are working for you. This is of course the time in the lunar cycle when things culminate or finally reach breaking point, so an ending may be necessary in an association which doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Unfortunately, Neptune’s presence won’t be overly helpful, as confusion, deceit or a lack of information could lead you to make choices which are not based on truth or reality. Tread carefully! Neptune opposes Mars and Venus after the 17th from this area, too, hence these feelings of unreality will not easily subside; partners won’t really know what they want and may lead you a merry dance as you try to work out what’s going on inside their head.
Finances should be fairly health now with Jupiter picking up speed at last in your house of money. His ongoing link with Saturn continues to shower good fortune on domestic affairs too until early October, therefore it’s a good time for buying and selling property, auctioning off family heirlooms or investing in a family business venture. He will oppose Uranus during this period too, however, so take care not to be too overconfident; it’s important to keep a sense of perspective and recognise your limitations. Be wary of relying too much on fortune, too; Jupiter’s magnanimous influence will make you feel invincible and full of luck, but risk-taking of any kind still needs to be addressed with extreme caution! Have a wonderful September!
