This month represents a time of digging in and exploring your inner workings, Aries, as you concentrate on sorting out the puzzle of your existence. Its second week will see your ruler, Mars, move into retrograde motion in your sign, indicating your search for a better handle on where in the world you might be heading. Your intuition serves you well as a source of information. The Jungian process of Individuation, which seeks to uncover your missing pieces by an overt attempt to dive deep below your surface layers for greater truth and better balance, will be a good model now. Finances might fluctuate and relationships will alter, yet all this can be seen as an aid to furthering your own self-development. Although the challenges of your situation will not let up until after the end of the year, you can make your own reality within these trials by the strength of your intention for your life purpose; that is to say, the mission that you came into this lifetime to fulfill.
The following was written by our resident monthly columnist Elodie St-Onge-Aubut of Ninth House Astrology
The Full Moon in Pisces at the beginning of September calls for an internal assessment. Getting to the roots of unconscious behaviors is a work in progress but this Full Moon is a time of clarity in connection with unhelpful behaviors. You are ready to let go of certain inner dialogues that have been undermining you for too long. The way you value yourself is shifting, and your perception is evolving. You’re ready to upgrade your internal software. The beginning of the month could feel rather emotional so give yourself the space to process what is coming up.
Venus in Cancer opposes Saturn in Capricorn on the 1st and 2nd, highlighting these internal reassessments and a well your responsibilities at work. If you’ve been assuming your workload without complaining, this time could also bring acknowledgement from your boss. There is a serious mood in the air. You may sometimes feel like no one cares but you could find that your presence and energy is greatly valued, and that the beginning of September might bring recognition for your efforts.
The Moon joins Chiron in Aries on the 4th and Mars in Aries on the 5th. You could get on the defensive, while feeling cornered or more vulnerable than usual. On the other hand you may feel energized by the potential conflicts and ready to assert yourself. Whether you take an offensive or defensive attitude, the Moon in Aries could indicate a few volatile days at the beginning of the month. Mercury enters Libra on the 5th, highlighting your partnerships until the end of September. You may have to work extra hard to keep the balance between yourself and others in September but it will be well worth it. Collaborations are in the works and others can help you get where you want to go.
Venus enters Leo on the 6th enhancing your creative sector for the rest of the month. Venus in Leo can boost the romantic signal or bring new ideas. Creativity and playfulness are highlighted. September should be a good month for artistic projects.
Mars stations retrograde on the 9th, at the end of Aries, and will be moving backward through your sign until mid-November. This retrograde of Mars in Aries could bring a period of reassessment. With a lot of Saturn in the picture as well, you may feel like things are not moving as fast as you would like or that external factors are keeping you from accomplishing your goals. It’s important to exercise patience at this time. Pay attention to what is taking place internally and around you, and see this period as an opportunity to sharpen your resilience.
Concentration will be in short supply as the Sun in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces from the 10th to the12th. There could be some confusion at work, and things may not go as planned. The Moon in Cancer until the 13th emphasizes your home life, and your attention could be on the personal side of the equation. Jupiter stationing direct on the 12th brings perspective on a situation, and potentially good news.
You gain new resolve by the time the New Moon in Virgo arrives on the 17th, which in turn aids your focus. You have a lot on your plate mid-month but a little organization works wonders. Making a list can help you prioritize and allow some peace of mind. The New Moon in Virgo is also a good time to recommit to taking care of your body, and it now can be easier to adjust your habits to align with your resolutions.
The Sun enters Libra on September 22nd signalling the first day of fall in the Northern Hemisphere and spring in the Southern Hemisphere. The Sun in Libra for the next month brings forth your partnerships. You may need to sharpen your diplomatic skills in the following weeks in order to get what you want. Mercury in Libra squares Saturn in Capricorn from the 22nd to the 24th, and opposes Mars retrograde in Aries on the 24th, accentuating tension. It may be hard to reconcile your desires with those of a partner or what is required of you at this time. You could feel torn between keeping the peace and going after what you want.
Things will start to gain momentum especially regarding a recent career decision as Saturn stations direct late on the 28th. However, with Saturn squaring Mars in Aries as it stations, you can expect delays or limitations. Things may be outside of your control for now but you do have power over your reaction. Being pragmatic about what is possible and keeping faith in yourself, and in the universe, will help you manage the stressful factors.
