Following your bliss is the message that the cosmos brings your way in the glorious month of September. For the past few months, powerful Pluto has been retrograde in your income sector, forcing you to question how happy you are in your line of work. If you love what you do, so be it! But if you don’t, doors will begin to open that will provide a glimpse of a better life.
A huge wakeup call arrives on the 1st with a solar eclipse in your tenth house of career. Eclipses have a way of shaking us out of a rut, sometimes pulling us, dragging and kicking, into the future. So if you’ve been miserable for years and have been avoiding a job search, the eclipse might deliver a ration of whoop ass that will get you going. As this is a positive lunation, it’s unlikely that you will lose your job. But something could happen—a snarky remark from a co-worker, just one more project dumped on your desk—that’s going to make you say, “Enough! I’ve had it.”
For those of you who’ve actively been looking for a new job, or want to make a career switch, the eclipse will shine its light on the path ahead. The same goes for self-employed folks who are anxious to earn more and make a bigger impact. With Pluto retrograde in your earnings sector you may have found it difficult to make headway, even if you were pushing hard. Once Pluto goes direct on the 26th, momentum will build. Helping matters along is energetic Mars which enters your income sector the next day, the 27th. Pluto has helped you define what it is that you really want to do; now Mars lights a fire under you to make it happen.
Mercury is retrograde in the career area as September begins, so you may be working on plans behind closed doors through the 22nd when it resumes direct motion. Use the first three weeks of the month to brainstorm, as the planets are encouraging deep thought before you spring into action. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t interview or talk to decision makers though. The 2nd, 7th and 20th are all excellent for making presentations and pitches. But keep your head down on the 12th and 13th, not the best days to approach power brokers. Aggressive Mars in your sign could make you push too hard and the results may not be to your liking.
The big news for all signs in September is Jupiter’s move from Virgo to Libra on the 9th. Over the next 13 months, networking and collaborating are the way to go for you, Sagittarius, whether it’s in love or business. When the Sun enters Libra on the 22nd an amazing chapter opens in which you can make headway by associating with like minded people. Lend your considerable talents to a charity or political party. Become active in the PTO or your church. Attend seminars and industry gatherings. Listen to TED talks, or better yet, become a speaker yourself.
And buddies can be the best way over the next year for you to find love! The solar eclipse on the 1st will have a profound effect on your love life. First, Saturn is in somewhat of a difficult angle to the eclipse. The ringed planet is all about longevity and keeping it real. Truth be told, if a current alliance is not making you happy, you may decide to move on.
Yet the eclipse is not encouraging you to play the field and embark on a rebound-related sexfest. You’re going to want a keeper, and a more traditional relationship at that. Affairs with married people, dating Mr. or Ms. Wrong (you know, the bad boys or the drama queens) or dealing with people encumbered with substance abuse problems is NOT what you’ll want. Get ready to get serious with someone who’s a true contender for your heart. Once Jupiter enters Libra on the 9th, the best ways to meet someone new are online (as Libra is your technology zone), through an introduction from a pal or by attending an event (gala charity fundraisers, seminars, workshops, weddings and parties).
The only day to watch is the 18th, when a friend could make a bad match or get bitchy about your choice of a mate. Beware of friends who are seeking benefits as well.
There will be a lunar eclipse on the 16th in your warm and fuzzy fourth house of domesticity, so your desire for security in love will only increase. Cohabitation could be discussed, along with getting married or having a baby. When the Sun enters Libra on the 22nd your deepest hopes and dreams will be highlighted. Pluto’s direct turn on the 26th will only encourage you more to seek a strong foundation, not only emotionally but financially. Lovers who are broke, as charming as they might be, are going to lose their luster.
The 26th is one of the best days of the year as the Sun meets up with Jupiter in your eleventh house of dreams coming true. This is not a day to be timid or to think small. Au contraire! Start planting the seeds now of what you’d like to manifest in the year ahead.
