Talk ain’t cheap, and you’re about to find out how true that is this month, Cancer. September is one of the best times you’ve had in years for getting your point across—to a lover, your kids, clients, co-workers, the neighbors and fans of your blog, if you have one!
That’s because your third house of self-expression is lit up like a Christmas tree in September. The Sun is there at the top of the month, to be followed by Mars, Venus, Mercury and a new moon. Not only is this an excellent month for sounding off, it’s perfect for socializing and meeting new people, whether for business or your own personal pursuits. The third house deals with the way we think and how we get our message out there to the world. As a a result, teachers, students, writers, artists, sales people, marketing folks, lecturers, and experts on a topic can all succeed if they take this energy and run with it.
If you are self-employed, this is a highly auspicious time for getting your name out there. Shameless self-promotion is what it’s all about, whether you buy Facebook ads, rub elbows at industry events or prospect religiously for new business. All Cancers, whether they work for someone or not, will find this to be an excellent time for brainstorming with others, strategizing and forming collaborations that will take your career in the right direction.
But let’s face it, we all need to communicate our thoughts to others regardless as to whether we are employed. It’s clear from your chart that you are going to demand stability—from a lover, your kids, family members and in your home environment. Not knowing where a romance is going, kids who think that they can rule the roost, inconsiderate roommates, siblings who are hell bent on creating drama—none of this is going to cut it in your world this month. Fortunately gentle Venus is in a good place to help you resolve issues without a lot of drama.
And generous Jupiter is also in an auspicious angle as it’s situated in your domestic sector. However, Jupiter moves to another house on October 10th, so you’d be wise to take advantage of the cosmic energy on offer this month to smooth things right now.
There will be a new moon in your communication sector on the 20th, and these events are usually excellent times for creating fresh beginnings. But this new moon is surrounded by testy planets not in a good mood, so the smart Cancer tries to self-promote, make new business connections and discuss personal matters with others before then. The biggest issue at new moon time is that others may resist your ideas and plans, especially big ones; all the more reason to get people on board before then.
Otherwise the rest of September is sprinkled with plenty of terrific days for making progress: the 2nd and 3rd, fabulous days for lining up job interviews or impressing muckety mucks (this is the Labor Day weekend in the US, but don’t sweat it—the energy goes into the work week); the 6th and the 9th, when lovers can make long term plans and singles could meet someone new; the 12th, a smart time to talk about practical matters with the family, a lover or at the office; the 18th, yet another good day for romance and career (schedule job interviews or important presentations, talk long-term with a lover) and the 22nd, an amorous day for spending romantic time withy your honey.
Powerful Pluto has been retrograde for months in your partnership sector, which may have created ripples of discontent or tension in a key relationship. This includes business alliances and romantic ones. Fortunately, Pluto resumes direct motion on the 28th, at which time you should find that you and a close connection are able to communicate more directly—and therefore successfully.
If you’ve been considering applying to college or trade school, the full moon on the 6th may give you the kick in the butt you need to get moving. The same holds true for booking that overdue vacation, starting an entrepreneurial venture, writing a screen play or otherwise stretching your boundaries. This lunation occurs in the most free-thinking, risk-taking part of your chart, so taking a chance in love is also well aspected.
