Now this is fascinating. Mercury the media planet enters Libra, the sign that rules equal marriage and civil partnership, on Tuesday 2nd September. This resumes the conversation for the generation born with Pluto and Uranus in Libra. They are on the planet to revolutionise the way governments and churches think about lesbian, gay and transgender people make commitments. Mercury is about to turn retrograde shadow, though, so nobody should actually buy into the September-October ‘decisions’ and ‘rulings’ with any sense of certainty. What is uttered as gospel, decreed by the courts and so on, could easily come unstuck with one computer problem or one flakey decision maker! The other big deal this week is Jupiter in Leo quincunx Pluto in Capricorn on Friday 5th September. You know what’s big business in 2014? Children. Just watch corporations and governments fall over themselves to finally tune children in. Leo is the sign to be associated with women, in particular, who campaign for young people (like J.K.Rowling and Beatrix Potter). As J.K.Rowling clearly uses astrologer, or maybe just an astrologer, you would have to speculate that her Harry Potter empire is about to take a powerful turn in September 2014.
Aries: 1-7 September 2014
Aries, on Friday 5th September, Pluto in Capricorn will form a quincunx to Jupiter in Leo at 11.23am in London. This is rare. It will also empower you to transform some aspect of your career, other calling in life. Someone or something will give you a tremendous new potency, in terms of your job, project, role, course or plans. At the same time, you would be mad not to take full advantage of the sensational opportunity now emerging with the next generation. This applies to babies, children, teenagers or perhaps (depending on your own age) Gen X, Y or Z, born 20 years after you. What or who is on offer now, is quite straightforward. You have so much to gain. An awful lot of Aries people are about to merge ambition, position and mission with parenthood – or in other cases, a mentor/guardian role with much younger people, either through the family, a godparenting role – or a voluntary/paid gig involving the young.
Taurus: 1-7 September 2014
Taurus, this is a welcome turning point for your travel, internet, foreign, publishing and/or educational agenda. You may feel there are no more substantial changes that could possibly happen, but what is now gathering speed will help you reinvent what matters. In fact, reinvention and relaunch is the theme for the rest of the year, if you can only pursue and persist – and be patient enough to make this (relatively new) thing work in your life. How empowered would you feel? This much – just throw your arms wide open and embrace the possibility. What else is going on now? Well, it’s connected. You’re being thrown something or someone so substantial and special. The family, house, home town, apartment, homeland or household could become so much bigger and better for you. Just say yes. I mean, come on, why on earth would you say no? You can develop a truly meaningful relationship with your people or place.
Gemini: 1-7 September 2014
Gemini, my aunt (born in May) just enquired about the prospects for her sign this week, and I immediately thought of her ukelele playing. And singing. And the fact that since Jupiter in Leo turned up in July, she has composed and sung a couple of tributes at family weddings and birthdays. Jupiter in Leo works in mysterious ways, Gemini, but it works through words. You may be a professional wordsmith – lots of people born under your sign are. Or maybe you just want to create lyrics, poetry, blogs, scripts, YouTube hits, articles or mimed performance. Jupiter in Leo on Friday, in aspect to powerful Pluto, reminds you that you must pursue what/who is there, to the exclusion of everything else if necessary. You seriously do not wake up in the right time and place like this very often – and words are your thing! What else is going on now? Basically, the house of your chart which Patric Walker believed ruled ‘matters of a joint financial nature’ is transforming in your favour. It’s all terribly new, this chapter with your house, money, flat, possessions or business. But it’s so potent.
Cancer: 1-7 September 2014
Cancer, the great truth of your sign at the moment is that the more you devote yourself to faking Libra characteristics – like intense teamwork with one other person – the more powerful you become. I suspect you have already made one giant leap in that department in the last few years anyway. You’ve figured out the whole duet or double-act thing, perhaps more than once. And what a marvellous legacy this has left you. What is utterly new now, though, is the aspect from Pluto in Libra’s traditional horoscope house, the Seventh, to the joy planet Jupiter. So take this situation with he or she who matters so much and work it. This includes enemies, rivals and opponents. You’re being given a chance to remake, remodel, reshape that doesn’t come along all that often. Simultaneously, Jupiter is handing you the chance of the year – perhaps of many years – to gain from a financial, property, business or charity solution.
Leo: 1-7 September 2014
Leo, Jupiter in your sign just handed you the best chance in ages to really spruce up your image – maybe change your name or title, eventually, to your total advantage – and certainly to relaunch yourself. I will repeat something I’ve written elsewhere for your sign. No matter if you are taking off a layer and revealing an old model of yourself (one that works so damn well today) or actually adding new, wondrous layers – it’s all creating marvellous change. The only thing you really have to do now is to keep nodding and smiling – and saying ‘Yes’ whenever the story moves on for you. What else gives this week? Pluto is triggered in Capricorn, the sign which rules your devotion to service and duty in the name of your work ethic. Even President Obama has this pattern. I suspect that being a dutiful cog in the machinery is the best thing you could be doing, and you will see why very close to Friday. The world needs Leo cogs!
Virgo: 1-7 September 2014
Virgo, you have learned (to your advantage) that when you pretend to be a Leo, you become more powerful. More potent. And other advantages come your way. So what does a Leo do, on this planet? Well, she or he is primarily here to guide, mentor, influence and inspire a younger generation. This can happen through life as a parent, godparent, grandparent, aunt or uncle. It can also happen through professional or voluntary commitments to younger people. This week Jupiter in Leo makes his presence felt with a thunderous boom in your horoscope, near Friday 5th September. There may actually be thunder or thunderclap omens around this time to impress you. Anything from an AC/DC symbol to the real thing, with storm clouds, may be the cosmic sign you need. But no matter how it occurs in your life, this wave of change is about owning the legacy of your personality to those born 20 years or more after yourself and realising how much it empowers you. The other story now? You know this one. When you cover things up, or play Mr/Miss Invisible, you gain so much.
Libra: 1-7 September 2014
Libra, on Friday 5th September or very close to it, you can move things forward again with your friend, or the group. The friendship may be old or new. The group may be anything from a professional network, to a sports team. You have every right to be excited and hopeful. What’s been developing lately is perfectly timed in your life. And this hasn’t even really begun yet – what you are seeing is the planted seed. If you cultivate the seeds of friendship or teamwork in September, you will have a stunning harvest by mid 2015. I would describe what happens near Friday as a growth spurt, so be your own life gardener. This person/these people are the award-winning roses; the sensational sunflowers. And some are just bloody enormous marrows. What else am I seeing in your chart now? Well, a parallel story (and just as important) is the massive potential shift you could be welcoming in terms of your place, or people. Your house or home town. Your flat or homeland. Your family or household. Your home girls and home boys. You want empowerment? Take it.
Scorpio: 1-7 September 2014
Scorpio, your ruling planet (okay, actually a dwarf planet these days) is Pluto and that instantly gives you a clue about your horoscope this week. Pluto is about the upsizing and downsizing of situations. And when it comes to your way with words – online and in the real world – you have seen so many variations on this theme since 2008 you may feel you’ve seen it all. Astrology always holds just one more surprise, though, and very close to Friday 5th September a stunning quincunx from Pluto to Jupiter suggests you must pursue the person, project or possibility which is so clearly going to give you the potency you deserve as a words person. You may be concerned with lyrics, chapters, articles, blogs, social media, speeches, foreign languages, multimedia – every Scorpio has her/his own medium. The person, project or possibility concerned is handing you the keys to an unbeatable new feeling. And hey, it could last. What is also going to last, for almost another 12 glorious months, is success. Something all-new, all-singing and all-dancing just landed in your life last week. You knew it was worth chasing. You’re so right. Show willing. No, just show massively enthuastic. You have no idea just how amazing this could be, until you try.
Sagittarius: 1-7 September 2014
Sagittarius, your ruler Jupiter aligns with Pluto towards the weekend, so you are entering September in the best possible position. A person or situation which slide onto your radar a few months ago recently went to the top of your list. Keep it there, no matter if we are talking about a trip, a relocation, a web venture, a book, a course or workshop – or an aspect of your scientific or spiritual beliefs that has found a good home. In many, many cases a regional or foreign location or local is part of the story for your sign now. So what do you do? It’s so easy with Jupiter. You just hold out your hands, or throw open your arms, and walk towards him, her, them or ‘it’ with an enormous smile. What is also new and also rather intoxicating is the realisation that there is always room for another change with your money, house, business, charity, apartment or possessions. The kind that makes you wake up feeling like King or Queen of the world. You cannot pay for that thrilling feeling of control nor buy it in a catalogue, but your horoscope is handing it to you, be you quids in, or broke.
Capricorn: 1-7 September 2014
Capricorn, on Friday 5th September there is a pattern in your horoscope that is rare and welcome. Pluto, the symbol of empowerment and control, aligns with Jupiter, an ancient symbol of growth, expansion, hope for the future and great rewards. I suspect you have already stumbled upon the key to the door that opens the latter. In fact, the person, possibility, project, place or person which has just zoomed into focus, after a nice period of soft focus, is a very big key indeed. What’s through the keyhole? More, more, more – in terms of your house, apartment, money, precious possessions, business assets or general lifestyle and security. How mad would you be, to let this pass you by? This mad (twirls both fingers on opposite signs of the head). Only a loco Capricorn would let a chance like this pass him/her by, given the huge amount you will gain by 2015 if it all works out. And at every juncture, you will be helped by fate to make it work out. What else is showing up in your chart now? Pluto in your own sign, urging you to relaunch yourself yet again. You’ve done this repeatedly since 2008 (with perhaps one really big shot, which worked well) but here’s another variation on the theme. New you. Or new version of you. Yes!
Aquarius: 1-7 September 2014
Aquarius, just when you thought you knew exactly who/what would be the main story with your former, current or potential partner – Jupiter surprises you. In the nicest possible way of course. This man or woman is at the heart of a story which has developed well enough for you since July, giving you one chance after another to pursue something so much better. What is now under construction in your horoscope, though, is something rather different but equally welcome. And all you have to really do is just follow the signs. And show willing. Jupiter doesn’t just hurl the solution for your marriage, or the chance for a new relationship, or (insert possibility here) and then deliver it. You have to grab the baseball of fate and put it through the hoop yourself. Bouncing and whooping all the way, like the Harlem Globetrotters circa 1974. The other scenario right now is that you are entwined with an enemy, rival or opponent in some way that is oddly beneficial for you. Again, whoop and bounce. What happens near Friday is a whole new ball game and one that works sublimely for you. Last note on your chart? You have learned so much about staying beneath the radar this year. Go even deeper. Go darker. It’s where the new power is.
Pisces: 1-7 September 2014
Pisces, there are no random coincidences or accidents in astrology. It’s based on synchronicity – those huge, wow-factor moments when you feel as if the universe is actually programming things in a divinely intelligent way. And the word of the week is divine. Because what has been happening with your old friend, your social media, your new friend – or most importantly, The Group – is meant to be right now. It is meant to be because you need to know what it feels like to find power and potency through a very particular kind of relationship. It has to be light, airy, breezy – and it utterly suits the internet, which is so impersonal, yet so rich in networks and friendships. As you will see very close to Friday 5th September, nothing gives you the steering wheel like the right kind of team, tribe or chum. What else is going on now? Jupiter in Leo has been so subtle in terms of his steadily growing impact on your daily workload and lifestyle, which of course incorporates your physical wellbeing. He’s been subtle but he’s not a slacker. If you go back, back, back all the way to July and beyond you will see how all the jigsaw pieces were being put on the board. No more puzzles. A brilliant future waits, if you are prepared to push this chance.
