You have quite a month of September ahead of you, Sagittarius, caught in the limelight while your true self-development takes place in quite a different venue, in hidden places toward the inside of your psyche. Surprises abound in your workplace and with regard to the ordinary of day-to-day pursuits, and bring to these rather mundane situations a spiritual glow along with unexpected enlightenment. In spite of the more obvious motivations tugging at you, inner work and intuitional information takes precedence over outer achievement. Your principles, and your beliefs in general, are undergoing a sea change, brought about in part by means of the Covid societal reset, and in part due to the internal timing of your own personal development. Your self-expression is on the front lines of these profound changes, and the universe is asking you to put all your creativity to work for the cause that makes the closest match to your evolving values. It might justifiably be said that only the path with heart will be truly satisfying to you now.
The following was written by our resident monthly columnist Elodie St-Onge-Aubut of Ninth House Astrology
The astrology for the month of September follows upon the mid-August Leo New Moon, which lit up your sector of higher mind and philosophical as well as actual journeying. Your wanderlust is stimulated, even if there is currently no concrete outlet. Also because this recent New Moon activated slow-moving and stolid old Saturn, there could be other limitations of one kind or another that you are currently dealing with. The late evening of the 1st, this fiery energy is complemented by a Full Moon in Pisces, so that the ethereal Water element might cool your fever imaginings. This takes place in your sector of home and family. With the now Sun in Virgo, corresponding for you to outer achievement, you have likely been busy lately, even in these Covid times, and this Full Moon shines her light on your more private inner nature. You could be feeling the need to take a break from the hustle and bustle, and spend time visiting or renewing your family or relaxing at home.
There could be renovations with your dwelling, or longstanding issues on the home front you need to attend to, and now may be a good time to deal with them. If you are looking to upgrade your living arrangement you may need to budget in order to gage what is realistic.
Partnerships are still strongly highlighted for you at the beginning of September, and you might have to compromise with others to get what you want. You find yourself weighing the pros and cons of your collaborations, but the way forward is through them. There could be rectifications needed to ensure that responsibilities are well-delegated rather than taking it all on your own shoulders. You might have been frustrated with your workload lately, and Venus in Cancer opposing Saturn in Capricorn in this Full Moon accentuates the slowing down or maybe brings things to a halt.
It will get easier if you can acknowledge the invaluable resources others are providing. You may be tempted to branch out but this could send you backtracking instead of moving forward. It is possible to clarify your role, and what you expect from others, but that will certainly require negotiations. Silver tongue Mercury enters Libra on September 5th, helping you find the middle ground while Venus entering Leo on the 6th can help you gain an overall perspective on your current situation, and consciousness regarding what you consider to be your basic mission.
On September 9th, Mars stations retrograde in Aries in your fifth house of self-expression and creativity. Since Mars is in a fellow Fire sign which trines to Sagittarius, its retrograde motion shouldn’t be as disruptive for you as for some other signs. Mars retrograde in Aries until mid-November will prompt you to revise your projects, and also your romantic involvements. Mars retrograde could enable introspection and revisioning, allowing you to burn any old assumptions surrounding romance, pleasure, and creativity. Projects that are burdensome could become even more problematic in the following months. Therefore it’s a good idea to pay attention as to where you invest your creative juices to avoid straining yourself. The same goes for any romantic potential that feels less than satisfactory. Simplify your engagements as much as you can.
Your ruling planet Jupiter finally stations direct on September 12th after having been retrograde since mid-May. Jupiter is ill at ease in the sign of Capricorn, and has been even more so while moving retrograde. If you have felt as though you have lost your sense of perspective, or as if some of the potentiality has lately been sucked out of your life, rest assured that this is not permanent. Even though Jupiter remains in Capricorn until late December its direct motion means you can start seeing a bit further ahead into a more livable future.
The Virgo New Moon taking place on September 17th sends a powerful, and grounding reset to your vocational sector. This New Moon trines Saturn in Capricorn while squaring the Moon’s Nodes, which emphasizes the resources you gain or lose from collaborating. If you have technical or other skills that are highly sought after, make sure you are properly compensated for them.
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 continues to strongly emphasize your associations with others, and with your surrounding community.
Mercury in Libra squares Saturn in Capricorn from the 22nd to the 24th, opposing Mars retrograde in Aries on the 24th. It may be hard to reach a consensus with others at this time. There could be building tension, or strongly polarized discussions taking place. Keeping the peace could prove to be challenging. Mercury enters Scorpio on the 27th, emphasizing inner understanding below the level of conscious awareness. It might be a good time to adopt a stealth and patient posture in your dealings. Do your research and inform yourself. Mars retrograde in Aries squares Saturn in Capricorn on the 28th, as Saturn stations, which colors the last week of September, and augurs potentially frustrating circumstances. This might be especially so with projects that require more financial backing then expected.
The end of the month also calls for a quiet retreat. Venus in Leo trine Mars in Aries on the 28th is your cue to take a break from the constant stream of information to soothe your nerves. Focusing on a long-term project will be the perfect medicine to counteract the noise.
