Your Workload, Lifestyle, Mental Health, Daily Routine and Physical Fitness
September is really about mucking out your stables. You have an overload of Virgo weather in the area of your horoscope associated with the alarm clock; your sleep patterns; your bathroom shelves; your work ethic; housework; exercise; fitness; stress and depression. To this we might add, the contents of your pantry or fridge - not so much the stables, perhaps, as what you put into your body. September 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 10th, 11th, 13th, 14th, 17th and 21st will bring turning points, regarding the same. The Sun in Virgo is a great illuminator. Light will be shed on the facts, so you can take necessary steps about your job, your university or college degree, or your unpaid work. You cannot separate your own wellbeing or state of mind from the labouring you do for other people, the duty you must fulfil or the service you must provide. That’s why September is about holistic health. You, as the whole person - your work, your weight, your sleep patterns, your doctor - the lot.
You will go straight into the major issues for the month on 1st, 2nd or 3rd September as your ruling planet Mars conjuncts the Sun. You have a duty to other people, or even animal companions (Virgo being the sign to rule cats and dogs). However, Aries, you have a duty to yourself, and as you are not one of Mr. Musk’s robots, you really have to think about your psychological, emotional and physical wiring. This is the most important time of year to do so. I suspect you also have such a loaded question to answer near 28th September, that you can’t just put these matters to one side.
September 27th, 28th or 29th finds Saturn triggering the North Node and South Node of karma, in areas of your horoscope which describe the family, the house, the apartment, your household and local area. At the same time, issues are immediately raised about your career, unpaid role or full-time study. This is a heavy load and no mistake. This is why it is so important to remember that it is the tiny details of the way you live, do the housework, attend to dentists and doctors, healers and diets, that shore you up for such moments. The end of September is a time of reckoning. You are hitting two pretty uncompromising cycles at the same time; one is about karma going back to the years 2000-2001. The other is about accepting the real world, with all its basic facts. No shortcuts and no fantasies. In fact, Aries, what you ‘clock’ around September 28th is likely to have a huge bearing on an historic decision you make about your home, household, family, ambition, position and mission either in December 2019 or perhaps January 2020. I’d say that makes regular meditation and exercise mandatory. It helps you so much.
Your Travel, Relocation, Foreign, Regional or Emigration Agenda
Aries, you are in the right time, at the right place, to travel, relocate, emigrate, or become intricately involved with foreign nationalities, distant places or huge regional differences in your own country. It could not be better, actually, even though you will have to do a lot of compromising to get there. The dates to watch involve Jupiter, the symbol of solutions and opportunity, and Ceres, the symbol of transformation and control. September 2nd, 10th, 17th and 21st are worth noting, and you should allow 24 hours either side, for the world to catch up with itself. Essentially, you have until December to seize the day, but your timing then - no matter if this is Europe, Australasia or the Americas we are talking about - is rare and so useful.
The Jupiter-Neptune square will be much discussed on Twitter, but what does it mean? Well, it’s historic and it arrives on September 21st. Your options are vast, then. You also need to keep it real. By that stage of the month, you could easily have a dual focus. It would not just be this very different culture, region or nationality - there would also be a book, website, course, workshop, seminar, export or import program or other mind-expanding plan. Get a move on, Aries. You are rather good at doing that, as you are famously fast off the mark. Yet, ideally, you would have as much done as possible, no later than the opening days of December 2019. That would give you the advantage you deserve.
Your Soul and Spirit
Nobody else understands this, sees it or knows about it, but your soul or spirit is the powerful backdrop to September’s action. This may involve your God - no matter if you are a Christian, Buddhist, Jew and so on. It might involve astrology, as the heavens are also a matter for the horoscope (or you would not be reading this). Sometimes the issue is your psyche, so it is a matter for a psychologist, psychiatrist or psychic. The movements of Neptune in September suggest you are wide open to the most confused and confusing situations (and people, or organisations). Be really aware of that, as if ever there was a time to stop floundering and start putting some sensible rules in place, it is September 2019. A classic example would be your attraction to a ‘meditation group’ which is actually a cult with a keen interest in direct debits from your account. When in doubt ask a sensible friend.
Your Former, Current or Potential Partner. Enemies, Rivals and Opponents
Be aware of this particular person (be it love or war) near September 7th, 16th, 17th, 26th, 27th when oppositions involving Chiron and Salacia in your chart, in your own sign of Aries, ask you to hold up a mirror. The face you see reflected there is your own, but there is another face too - and that belongs to your former, current or potential partner. Your enemy, rival or opponent. You are now moving through the most important period of 2019 for your marriage, divorce, separation, common-law marriage or partnership.
If a duel is more important to you emotionally and psychologically than a duet, your energy will likely to into some kind of feud, dispute, lawsuit or battle near the dates I have given you (above). The trick with this cycle is to remember it all leads somewhere. And it all leads towards a fresh start - a new chapter - perhaps a dramatically different beginning. You can expect that on the New Moon on September 28th.
Aries, what appears to be about him, her, or ‘the two of us’ is actually about you. That is far more important, long-term. You have done all the karma involving the children, or past decisions to skip pregnancy - or stepchildren. That all finished around August 15th when the last piece of the missing jigsaw puzzle was set to one side. Even if sons and daughters, adoption, abortion, miscarriage, fostering, stepchildren, child custody and the rest have not been particular concerns of yours (you have a different sort of bond with your former, current or potential partner) you can still bank on September 28th as a fresh start for ‘Me, me’ and again ‘Me.’ This goes beyond Social Me-me-me-media into real concerns with your name, title, reputation and appearance.
The thing is, you have Chiron and Salacia in Aries for quite some time to come. Yet these situations involving the other person, on the other end of the scales, do not last much beyond September. So, thinking of the mirror again, the face you see reflected there, in the context of the other person, is far more important than the actual feud or partnership; the budding relationship or the long-gone marriage. September is the moment to ask yourself how other people see you, at a distance, and assess you. This image stuff is more important than first appears, and although it is superficial, we live in an age of Instagram and Selfie Sticks.
In some cases we are talking about a professional feud or a dispute with a rival, enemy or opponent that has nothing to do with love and sex at all! If so, you can still expect quite a long and winding road in September, which reveals how you are seen by people who don’t know you - especially online. This will also lead you to a brand-new decision regarding this duel, on September 27th, 28th or 29th. The contest or competition, even the bigger war, takes a brand-new turn then. Make it the best possible turn, by doing your research, fact-finding and consulting a professional if you have to, well before then.

Babies, Children, Teenagers, Young Adults, Parenthood, Potential Relationships
As early as the 1st of September when the Sun sheds light on the next generation (or the one after that) you are building up to a time of reckoning, regarding the younger faces in your world - on September 13th, 14th, 15th. That Full Moon will build slowly in the first fortnight, but when you see the unmistakable big, round, white shape over your rooftops - you will know it is time to deal with a crossroads choice. This may be pregnancy, adoption, your child’s education or career, a teenage football team, step-parenting, I.V.F. programs, abortion, your adult daughter’s godchild and so on. It’s intensely personal.
Sometimes this cycle coincides with more sweeping issues about a younger generation, possibly teenagers or younger adults in their twenties, depending on your age. So, this may be a class you teach, or a youthful audience you address, or a children’s charity in a poor country. You get the picture.
The Sun’s conjunction to Mars on 2nd September is rather overheated, emotionally, and rather than react, you may prefer to slow down and come up with a strategy. This also very much applies to sexual relationships (or even one-night stands) where you just know you could be fielding a pregnancy, or perhaps moving one day to a marriage where the other person’s nieces, nephews, children or godchildren become like your own. Around the 2nd, slow down and cool down.
Near September 3rd, the Sun’s conjunction to Mercury suggests an important piece of news, a keynote discussion or a pivotal piece of paperwork, regarding all this. It may be a dating app like Tinder or your grandchild’s education. As I said, you are building to a Full Moon in September so drop any idea of ‘perfect’ or even ‘100%’ outcomes. They just don’t exist this month. Life is complicated and you have to knit it together. Something you can do for yourself, quite proactively, is to avoid the 14th of September itself - if you were thinking about pursuing an adoption then; conceiving a child; putting your son up for a scholarship; beginning a football coaching program with Millennials and so on. Allow a day either side for world time differences. That period is not only a massive stretch, because of the Full Moon, we also have a clash between Mars and Neptune that day. I don’t think you need that in your life!
Friends, Groups, Twitter, Societies, Unions, Associations, Communities, Networks
You don’t really have any boundaries with your friends, or the other people in the groups you belong to. These may be religious, political, musical, sporting, creative or purely social. There is a general feeling of randomness about the faces in the network, and yourself, and part of that is down to the nature of the internet. Twitter can be so confusing sometimes, and don’t even think about its rival social media online: some spaces leave you feeling all at sea, all over the place, pretty much all the time.
For this we have Neptune to thank, and yet you are so hugely experienced with this cycle, having bobbed along with it for the last seven or eight years, that nothing is really that new to you. September is just a reminder of the blurred lines between yourself and your friends, or within the circle as a whole. Rein it in. Control and contain it. The issue may actually be the total lack of form or structure within the circle, or perhaps it’s the chemistry between yourself, and your friends. All it takes is drugs or alcohol and any pretense at rules just collapses. There are no rules!
You can help yourself a great deal in navigating the situation by being sharply aware of the potential for muddle and messiness, near September 4th, 7th, 10th, 14th, 17th and 21st - allow 24 hours either side. The boundaries I’m talking about can sometimes be physical - some people cross the line by invading your space, for example, or step over the line in other ways. Neptune transits are surprisingly easy managed. You just have to raise your awareness about what is going on and stay grounded. Most of all, reinstate the boundaries that may have eroded since March - or if you are only waking up to this messy situation for the very first time, it may be the moment for you to stem the tide, put your foot down, anchor yourself (and others) and put up a wall. I could be talking about the Freemasons here, or a charity which also involves some dear friends.
Making and Saving Money in 2019
You are at last in a position to increase your savings, add to your cash flow or bank account, capitalise on bargains or enjoy greater benefits through your charity, business, house, apartment or valuables. They call Jupiter the lucky planet, and in September you will attract people, organisations or situations which give - and go on giving. This may be a happy-go-lucky person who is only too pleased to help you save, or profit in some way. You may also be dealing with a corporation, department or group of people with the means to be generous with you.
Ceres is also around, so you’d have to expect some kind of compromise, where you both/all share in a brand-new arrangement. This is very much a month for deals, Taurus. Do as much as you can between now and the early days of December, when the cycle breaks. You’ve not had it for 12 years and it has quite a reputation in astrology. Sometimes the gains are effortless; you find yourself on the right side of an exchange rate, for example, or with no effort at all, your residential or property situation offers you something (big) for nothing. The dates to watch in respect of this are September 2nd, 10th, 17th, 21st, 29th. If your life was a short story in September, the title would be ‘The Pie - And How to Cut It’.
Lifestyle, Mental Health, Physical Wellbeing, Workload, Duty, Service
A long overdue update on the above, is coming in September with a fresh start on the 27th, 28th or 29th of the month. Just in time for October. You can’t really separate your work ethic, tasks, chores and day-to-day duties from how you feel - physically or mentally. You are most likely to notice whatever needs attention, this month - and far more likely to do something about it. This may be depression, insomnia or anxiety (the common colds of mental health) or something which is really for your doctor, healer, dentist or surgeon to consider. Diets fall into this category but so do prescription drugs. September is a bit of an eye-opener in this regard, Taurus, as you are being given a 3/4-week trawl of everything that counts. This might include the amount of work you are supposed to turn in after lunch - or it could just be your commitment to the gym, swimming or a little P.G. Wodehouse stretching in the mornings. It is unlikely to be a bigger deal than that, unless you have personal birth chart factors in Virgo which are being triggered in September as well. You are very likely to commence a new project, take a new role or title, start a new job, course or voluntary position - and the rest - in the closing days of September.

Your House, Apartment, Property Investment, Town, Family, Household or Country
The most important decisions of the year, regarding all of the above, will arrive in September. You could be moving, renovating, attending to home repairs, reshuffling the household, organising major plans with the family, dealing with your council or questions of passport and residency, this month. The dates to watch (allow 24 hours either side) are September 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 10th, 11th, 13th, 14th, 17th and 21st.
Transits in Virgo in the Fourth House of your solar chart are an annual event. So, from late August until late September of any year, you tend to sort out the kitchen, your mother, your street - and so on. What is different this year is the timing. The first two weeks is an absolute blitz, when you will find time is shorter and - patience is shorter too. Try not to turn up the heat or crank up the accelerator. You will find it makes life so much easier when push comes to shove, at the Full Moon on 14th September.
That period - September 13th, 14th, 15th - is unhelpful for major decisions or action plans regarding the house. Your apartment. Your flatmates or roommates. Your council. Your country. You may prefer to get as much done as you can early on, with the best possible advice, and then clear a space around the middle of September. Everyone will be responding to that Full Moon with even more ‘lunacy’ and generally loony behaviour than usual. Why? So many inner conflicts! So many polar opposites! We also have an opposition between Mars and Neptune at the same time, so you may prefer to skip that entire period for organising plumbers, having a family conference or taking on the usual greedy high-rise developers. Use your astrology.
Ambition, Mission, Position
Your career, unpaid role or college/university degree is encouraging you to drift, cruise, meander, float and paddle through life. There is nothing real about any of this, in the sense that the other 11 signs of the zodiac have to live in the real world (and you do not, Gemini). The square from Jupiter to Neptune on September 21st is a good example of just how far things have drifted. Whatever you call ‘success’ in your life is really secondary to the main theme now - which is escaping. Your holiday from the everyday - your vacation from the ordinary - continues in a great wave, on September 20th, 21st, 22nd when you are hugely removed from everything. Nobody would deny you that kind of great escape, Gemini, but you also need to be aware of the long-term and try to avoid setting yourself up for issues after May 2020. By 2021, for example, you could easily be feeling all at sea, unless you are mindful of the future as well as the present. For all that there is nothing real-world about your position, mission or ambition, you also need to keep the unreal, real. Find the shallow end and put your feet down. Put your hands on the ropes.
Babies, Children, Teenagers, Young Adults, Sexual Relationships
This is the great turning point of the year, coming as it does, with an opportunity and solution involving your former, current or potential partner. The dates to watch for key decisions (long overdue) are September 7th, 16th, 17th, 22nd, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th (and particularly note the New Moon on 28th September, as the Sun and Moon in conjunction have been associated with conception for many centuries in astrology).
Your personal life is intensely so! You may be dealing here with the possibility of a future date, while having to take your adult daughter’s feelings into context about her divorced father. You could be just eighteen years old and thinking about contraception. Gemini, your personal birth chart, if you are a Premium Member, will give you the full picture on what is about to unfold on the dates above. Allow 24 hours either side, by the way, as the world has to catch up with itself.
Marriages can be improved by landmark decisions about children. Separations or divorces revolve around child custody. Sometimes the answer to love and life, is to date a single parent. There are so many possibilities out there for you Gemini, but September is absolutely the most crucial month of the year, in terms of setting your future direction up. It is a very personal choice, because not everyone wants a full-time, live-in partner - and not everyone wants, or can have, a child. Yet, some formula you concoct for yourself, to your own recipe, will incorporate so many of those ingredients: love, sex, intimacy, parenthood, substitute parenthood and the rest.
Former, Current and Potential Partners. Rivals, Enemies and Opponents
Dates to watch here are September 2nd, 10th, 17th and 21st - possibly the 29th too - as you deal with the need for a compromise which will change everything with this person. What results will be a completely different playing field. Given that this is a game for two, we might compare it to a boxing match, or ice-skating, or fencing. The phrase ‘boxing clever’ springs to mind and also the phrase ‘on point’ and you will experience a lot of this, at the Jupiter-Neptune square of 21st September.
The fact is, not only Jupiter but also Ceres are both in your opposite sign of Sagittarius. You’d have to suspect an angle with your finances, house, business or apartment as well, close to 10th September, and again on 29th September. There is karma at work here with this person, Gemini. It may go back to the years 2000-2001 or even further, right into past lives.
The bottom line is, this works out. It works very well for you and for the other person. You may be hoping for an amicable split with equal access to the children - that is possible. Maybe you have a new date in mind, who could bring his nieces or nephews with him - substitute children. Jupiter is a tremendous problem-solver! No matter what you need to grow as a couple, to resolve any problems, or to carve up new emotional territory - you can do that in September.
Gemini you have until December to really finalise this. Needless to say, if you are single, then you are in a happy hunting ground, particularly if you are open to the idea of sharing. I very much doubt, with Ceres around, you can just saunter into a new sexual relationship in September without having to time-share the person concerned with a former partner; the family; the friends. Ceres is really about dividing up energy and loyalty, commitment and quality time, as they say.
If you are splitting up, remember that in the Roman mythology from which astrology is derived, Ceres raised issues about mothers and daughters, and also mothers and sons-in-law. The key to everything with this planet, is to agree to differ. Divvy up!
Friends and Groups
The friendships may be old or new. The groups may be social (Twitter), political (The Democrats), sporting (Arsenal) or musical (Oasis). What you have here, not for the first time either, is a challenge and also a change, Gemini. Do you merely trot along like everybody else, doing what comes naturally and predictably? Or…do you accept that there is no longer anything too audacious or outrageous to attempt? The key dates for your choices regarding these people are the 16th, 17th and 27th of September when you realise how much scope there is. Nothing conventional or ‘normal’ will really do, then, as you are experiencing the double transit of Salacia and Chiron, and the Romans (who gave us modern astrology) would have thought you were mad if you expected regular friendships or an average situation with the group. You’re being asked to see what you can get away with!

Pulling Focus on the Internet, Publishing, Travel, Foreigners, Education
You have been dealing with the lack of focus regarding the web, books, holidays and vacations, relocation and emigration, foreign people and places - and education - for about eight years. In September 2019 you will have a chance to pull focus, narrowing your field of vision so that things become clearer. Then, you can take steps to reduce the levels of confusion surrounding your blog, Twitter account, website, book, course, workshop - or that pin on the map that is so important. You should take firm steps near September 14th in particular (allow a day either side as America is far behind New Zealand). So, across September 13th, 14th, 15th around the world, which is where so much of your internet activity is based, you should be thinking about boundaries. A few rules would not go astray. The Full Moon involves your ruler and as it is a tug of war between the Moon and Sun, there may be some inner conflicts about your plans on the 14th, or you may be dealing with polar opposites. On the most basic level we are in a climate emergency, so you need to watch for extreme weather or flooding near the Mars-Neptune opposition, also on September 14th. Allow a day or two either side, as per the above suggestion. It is this kind of thing that could delay your travel plans or put a hold on your regional or foreign connection’s plans involving you.
The Worldwide Web, Multimedia, Public Speaking, Writing, Communication
This is the most important time of year for your plans, projects, ideas and your voice - across all mediums and media. All eyes and ears will be pointed in the direction of your message, whatever that happens to be. Your computer, mobile telephone or microphone will become an outlet for so much! The relationships involved in the message, the need to speak your heart (as well as your mind) and so on. The project or product that comes out of September 2019 will be unforgettable. September 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th could easily turn up the heat, though, so be careful with all that goes in writing, as some things cannot be undone online. It’s a fast and furious beginning to a fascinating month.
Lifestyle, Workload, Mental Health, Physical Well-being
How do you get the balance right, Cancer? Improvements have been a long time coming with your lifestyle as a whole, incorporating your housework, paid work, unpaid work or university/college degree. Your physical wellbeing and mental health cannot be separated from your ability to perform daily tasks and chores for others. Duty calls, and all that! Fortunately, you are now at a welcome turning point in the year when at last the opportunities to have more, do more and benefit from more - are lining up in front of you. Solutions not possible in 12 years are also here. The dates to watch (allow a day either side for world time zone differences) are September 2nd, 10th, 17th, 21st, 29th.
The planet Ceres is also involved in this pattern, alongside the planet Jupiter, so there will be a reshuffle within your home, if your housework dominates (or you are a full-time parent or carer). If you are in full-time or part-time employment, or studying, the reshuffle will involve your employer, staff, colleague, client, lecturer or classmates. There will be a profound change in the balance of power near the dates I mention above, with possible time-sharing agreements, mergers, promotions, demotions or temporary departures. It may well be that the return from holiday in July or August (a ski vacation or summer escape) has been enough to force somebody’s hand.
Ceres was discovered on 1st January 1801 when the United Kingdom came into being and that forced compromise between Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales should tell you, at a glance (think of the Union Jack) just how ’squeezed’ some arrangements are, especially at work. Yet, from the big squeeze of September, will come a powerful new arrangement, between all of you - or both of you. It’s a whole new world, Cancer.
The mental health and physical wellbeing aspects of the cycle are intensely personal to you, of course. It’s your body. Suffice to say, a sweeping suggestion to benefit you, and perhaps even take care of one of your biggest concerns, is in store. You’d have to be trying pretty hard not to do well from the Jupiter quincunx to the North Node in Cancer (your sign) on 10th September. It may be gym access that comes with a new job, a four-day week or just a superior surgeon, but your horoscope is tilted nicely.
Chiron in Aries
This emphasis on your workload, duty to other people and your commitment to the job, is increased by patterns made by Chiron in Aries, in your house of ambition, achievement, success and social rank. Chiron was found in 1977 when punk rock changed the music industry, and this famous centaur is best-known through a portrait showing him as a music teacher. Think of Chiron as an educational experience like no other and you’re pretty close!
This is now taking place within your career, university or college degree course - or your unpaid work. Somehow, by the end of September, a bigger and better day-to-day situation will emerge, either because of a new position (quite possible), or the reshaping of your current plans, or colleagues. If you are curious about Chiron look him up on Search. He is much misunderstood.
Home, Family, Household, Town, Country, Property
On or close to 28th September you will renovate, redecorate, move, reshuffle the household or rethink family plans with a new direction involving your relatives. There may be larger issues at stake, so September 27th, 28th, 29th may coincide with important news involving your council and local area, or your government and your country. You are ruled by the Moon as you know, and New Moons are particularly important on your calendar. This is not just any old New Moon. It comes right at the end of a sequence of intriguing patterns in your horoscope, as Apollo, Mercury, Venus, Bacchus and the Sun precede the Moon into Libra, the sign which rules your home life and family tree.
You have something or someone to follow and be inspired by. Important news and plans to discuss or add a signature too. Complicated relationships, with family or flatmates, which always make life more interesting. A natural high, thanks to Bacchus, the son of Jupiter. And throughout September, Cancer, the Sun shines a bright spotlight on your people and your place, reminding you it is time for your annual update. Give yourself points out of ten and be ready for a brand-new direction.

Your Money, House, Business, Apartment, Valuables or Charity
This is one of the most important months of the year, in terms of all that you earn, own or owe. Your finances are about to be reshaped. Dates to watch for major decisions (allow a day either side) are September 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 10th, 11th, 13th, 14th, 17th and 21st. We’re talking about fundraising here, or your investments - your company, tax position or just…shopping!
You are ruled by the Sun, so when the Moon stands opposite, at the Full Moon on September 14th, you will either be at odds with yourself, or you will be dealing with polar opposites, regarding your money, house or apartment. Allow more time and space on September 13th, 14th, 15th as you have a major decision to make about your life budget.
There are a couple of things going on here, Leo. One of them is the Virgo weather, which is about the need to nail down your values. This involves knowing, in considerable detail, what you will sell your soul for - and what you absolutely refuse to budge over. Knowing what you will cut a deal over, with individuals, organisations or the world itself - and what you stubbornly resist - is what this month is all about. This goes way beyond the dollars, euros or pounds. It reaches into what you value most about your life.
The other major point about September is Neptune, a symbol of parallel worlds, alternative realities, and in fact - all escapes from the real world. A credit card is a good example of that. It’s not your money but it feels like it. We have an historic square from Jupiter to Neptune on September 21st, and that is the moment to get real, about what is not real at all. You are being offered a bubble on September 20th, 21st, 22nd and it will be quite a big bubble, too.
A holiday from reality, especially with finance, is always a welcome alternative for you. It has been that way ever since Neptune changed signs in 2011, so for about the last 8 years, you have been drifting, cruising, floating and surfing. It’s really important that you make sure your ship is watertight. That you know where the anchor is, as well as the lighthouse. Don’t get lost out there, Leo. Jupiter makes everything feel bigger and better, but it is really important that you remember - The Queen Mary is not the real universe of money! Sailing along like this can feel as if it’s your whole world, but the (boring) real world is out there too. Talk to the most sensible accountant or financial advisor you know; Neptune is here until 2026 so you need a long-term strategy. Eventually you reach a crossroads, once the Nodes change signs from May 2020, so given that banking, property, charity and business tends to be about years, not just weeks, September is a sensible time to sit down and project into the future.
Babies, Children, Teenagers, Young Adults, Sexual Relationships
Leo, you will be offered an opportunity, a solution and a compromise regarding the above areas of your life in September. It will be on your radar near September 2nd, 10th, 17th and 21st. The sexual relationship would have parenthood potential. The most likely scenarios now involve your son or daughter, but of course, we are also talking about your godchildren, stepchildren, nieces, nephews or grandchildren.
On a less personal note, transits like this can also cover younger people as a whole - the generation born after yours, or the generation beyond that. If so, there is a leading role here - guiding, mentoring, setting an example, and above all - leading.
It is the same if you do have children of your own. You must take the reins firmly and confidently in September and show the way. Jupiter has a reputation for raising your game, lifting your sights and providing immaculate timing, resources, support and help. You can call it dumb luck, or you can call it good karma. In fact, if the younger face in question is around age 12 or 24, you may very well be picking up good karma from around 12 or 24 years ago, when he or she arrived in the world.
Whatever the story karmically, September is about a deep change in the controls. Ceres is also involved. She is a symbol of power issues involving mothers, daughters and sons-in-law. Ceres is usually ignored by internet astrologers, but in fact she has been a reinstated planet since the year 2006 and is a potent symbol of demotion and promotion. Thus, you might say, there is a seismic shift waiting with the world of babies, children, teenagers or young people in September, and you are at the heart of this downsizing or upscaling - in power.
A classic example would be dating a man who has children from a previous marriage and finding that you have influence, which their mother has to deal with. Another example would be moving your daughter to a school with a serious reputation. Taking an honorary role with a prestigious children’s organisation or hiring a nanny with kudos? You create your own story this month, but you need to remember that you are a Leo and were born to lead younger faces. Your heirs. A record number of pregnancies or births are about to appear in Leo World as a result.
Developing the relationship you have with your nieces and nephews is a very good idea. As I’ve said, Ceres is about a shift in the balance of power, so I won’t deny there are politics around younger family members in September, but you can’t really go wrong with Jupiter, that ancient symbol of hope, luck, benevolence, generosity and the big win-win solution. If there is anything at all to say about your relationship with younger people, or with lovers (who could co-parent with you) it is that you only have this Jupiter cycle once every 12 years and you need to use it or lose it. Jupiter will be gone by early December.
The Web, Multimedia, Publishing, Education, Communication, Commuting, Travel
Thunderbirds are go. It is time for Lady Penelope to order Parker to appear with the pink Rolls Royce - or to take her part in one of Sylvia and Gerry Anderson’s strangely visionary global meetings. Near September 7th, 16th, 17th, 22nd, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th (and particularly at the New Moon on 28th September, involving your ruler, the Sun) you are in prime time. Apollo, Mercury, Venus, Bacchus and the Sun himself - eventually with the Moon - are all in your zone of communication, transportation, information, negotiation and publication.
You have some oppositions, so it is important to remember that differences in beliefs, cultural values, languages, religion or worldview are always worth factoring in. Be aware of this near September 7th, 16th, 17th, 26th, 27th in particular. The oppositions involving Chiron and Salacia then, suggest these are peak times for your ideas about travel, relocation, emigration, the worldwide web, publishing, academia or education. Fair enough, but you will be dealing with inner conflict then, or polar opposites around you.
It’s pretty hard to go wrong with that line-up, though. You’ll be extremely busy with your computer, microphone or telephone in September, ahead of a dramatic fresh start with a project, plan, role or goal that really matters, in terms of your ‘voice’ across all mediums or media. That is set for the closing days of September. The fact that Bacchus is there all month (a crucial asteroid) suggests it’s one natural high after another. Your way with words, images or ideas will give you some real champagne moments.

Your Former, Current or Potential Partner. Your Rival, Enemy or Opponent
It’s time to clarify the situation with (or for) the other person who matters so much to you. This may be your wife, husband, boyfriend or girlfriend. Your former partner. Your potential partner. This cycle is also about any enemies, rivals or opponents. If you visualise your life as a seesaw and ask yourself which person, on the other end, affects you the most - September is about that person and no other. Fuzzy thinking, a lack of sensible boundaries, and (possibly) the effect of alcohol, prescribed drugs or illegal drugs may also have an impact, on you - or this other person. It can and does happen on Neptune transits.
Close to September 4th, 7th, 10th and very importantly, the Full Moon and Neptune-Mars clash on September 14th, you need to raise your awareness of what is going on, why it is happening - and how to rein it in. This also applies near September 17th and 21st, when two important asteroids also clash with Neptune.
There is tremendous escapism here. You, he or she seems to be drifting through life, escaping from the real world, and using the partnership, the memory of one, or the hopes for one - as a way out. Even a conflict, battle or outright legal duel between two people can be an escape. It is very important to use September as the excuse to contain and control what is going on. If allowed to drift of its own accord, this situation will simply result in March 2020 being messier than you need. If your issue is someone who is against you, or a hostile organisation, pay attention to leaks and infiltration of all kinds. The erosion of boundaries which usually protect you can be subtle on this transit and you need to be aware of the drip-drip-drip sounds.
Your House, Apartment, Family, Household, Town, Country, Property Investment
You will redecorate, renovate, repair or relocate (all the re words) in September following an irresistible opportunity. Your apartment or house could also benefit from a repurposing of rooms, for example, or the departure or arrival of someone in the household or family. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, opportunity, growth, improvement and problem-solving is on your side near September 2nd, 10th, 17th, 21st. Allow a day either side for America to catch up with New Zealand.
This may go beyond your four walls, to your local area, or even your country. What you are set to see is hope, optimism and better days all round - after a long period in which nothing happened. Virgo, the value of your home may rise, or you may be in a position to afford a superior house or apartment by the end of the month. There are many ways this transit can develop.
The family itself is at the heart of long overdue improvements and necessary changes. It may grow, through the arrival of new in-laws, new babies, or long-lost cousins. We associate Jupiter with the old Roman title ‘Optimus Maximus’ so in September you will be able to optimise your living space and reach maximum potential with the family tree. This kind of astrological weather is worth being proactive about: you have four months.
Ceres is also in the mix so there will be a change in the balance of power within the family or household. This can happen because of departures or arrivals, or just a new definition of who has access to what (or whom) and when! Ceres is a symbol of daughters and mothers, but also in-laws. Perhaps you are set to see a direct playing-out of the ancient Ceres story.
Either way, Virgo, there will be a deal. A new deal and a very good one. Perhaps I am talking about Brexit here. Did you vote Remain? You may be about to change your mind.
Image, Title, Brand, Reputation, Appearance, Profile
You will be in the public eye with all eyes and ears pointed your way, in September. This makes you far more aware of how strangers see you. It also makes you aware of how you look, physically, on camera - or on public display. We live in an age of narcissism, thanks to Instagram and the Selfie stick. You have to be up there and out there, even if you don’t particularly want to, Virgo. What you need to do in September is not about narcissism, though. Nor is it about your ego. It is really about understanding that you have a shop window to fill. You are the window-dresser.
The first seven days of September concentrate your mind wonderfully. Actually, it really is all about you! This makes you realise it has been about a year since your last birthday, and about a year since you needed to update yourself - on yourself. Others will hold up a mirror to you and the person you see reflected there, must be viewed from a distance. Being objective about the way your personality is projected, or how you look (from haircut to shoes) is a sensible idea. You will have to do a lot of work very quickly, Virgo, but that’s fine. Once it’s done, it’s done.
Money, Property, Charity, Business, Valuables
You are building up to a new beginning near September 28th, Virgo, and the whole month will feel like a short story about your budget (and your life budget) written with definite new paragraphs, every week. Beyond the actual discussions or paperwork, there are bigger questions. What do you think you can get away with? That is one of them. Another question concerns your ideas about what is realistic these days - or what constitutes living in the real world, financially. As I said, the whole month is about rewriting your finances, shares, company, taxes, charity, house, apartment, valuable items and so on.
You have to put your own value on what (or whom) is so precious to you that the word ‘priceless’ comes to mind. You also have to decide for yourself - how you will compromise, or even sell out. Sometimes you have to sell your soul. Sometimes you don’t.
The great teacher of astrology, Chiron, is in the Eighth House of your solar chart, which describes the financial situation between yourself and your partner, or former partner. It also talks very much about your legacy, but also the legacy or will which is made out to you, by other people. This brings in the question of a mortgage with the bank, or big-ticket items in your life, like life insurance, or family heirlooms. Above all, it has to be business or property affairs which are now where the lessons are being delivered.
Chiron was not a normal teacher. He was a centaur (out of the ordinary) and even within the ranks of centaurs, he was an outsider. The person, situation or organisation which educates you in September is likely to be pretty unconventional. Rather unexpected. This loosens things up quite a lot, so you find yourself thinking about what you can actually do, these days. What might once have seemed impossible, unthinkable or just outrageous may now seem within reach. That’s typical of Chiron. I dare say the Sun’s opposition to Chiron, near that New Moon in the closing days of September, will show you the full story.

Your Former, Current or Potential Partner. Your Rival, Enemy or Opponent
Watch what develops near September 7th, 16th, 17th, 26th and 27th with the person on the other end of the seesaw, Libra. This is probably your husband, wife or former partner. A potential partner for the future. It may also be your arch-rival, enemy or opposition. It really depends on how many seesaws you have in your life. And who matters most!
The long, slow transit of Salacia and Chiron in Aries, your opposite sign, reminds you that opposites attract sometimes. It also takes two to tango. It takes two people to form a duet or fight a duel. In this cycle you are concerned with one-plus-one but also one-against-one. These two objects in your horoscope are pretty well-known, having been painted or written about, for 2000 years and counting.
Salacia is a symbol of other worlds and other realities. There is something very far removed from the everyday about your situation, or about the person in question. It’s a parallel universe, actually. Ask the most sensible friend you know for her opinion on the situation and she’ll set you straight. You have been drifting along with this for such a long time, be it love or war, that you have likely lost perspective on it. There is absolutely nothing regular about this!
The other reason that the marriage, the partnership, the feud, the duel, or the flirtation seems like such a stretch, is this. Chiron is also at large. He was a teacher by trade. He was also half-man, half-horse. Very peculiar. You are now being taught lessons about what should not exist, what could not exist, what must not exist - but most certainly does! Libra, this lends the situation with your other half, or the other side, a really odd quality. Nothing really fits your old rule book, but then nothing should. You will do much better in September, especially near the dates I mention above, if you throw away the old expectations. The person or the situation will not conform or be remotely conventional. It bears no relationship with the real world at all. Thus, you have to make it up as you go along. That is what September is all about. It’s a bridge to cross, but it’s a bridge worth crossing.
Your Profile, Title, Reputation, Appearance, Image
Everything about September should be tilted towards a relaunch on (or within 24 hours of) the New Moon in Libra on the 28th of the month. This may mean four weeks of weight loss, for example, or four weeks to recover from laser eye surgery, or an eyelift. Perhaps you have your eyes on a new website or blog. A new title or role. New hair or shoes. It all works.
None of this is vanity, it’s just common-sense. You are in the best possible position of 2019 to thrust yourself forward in a very different way, using everything you learn and experience in September to help you get there. It will be another year before you have a similar chance. Apollo, Mercury, Venus (your ruler), Bacchus and the Sun are all in Libra, your own zodiac sign.
You’re going to enjoy this. You will also be inspired to copy (or politely imitate) a person you admire. This can only help, in terms of the photographs, the portrait, the new internet profile or the video which is coming.
Your Book, Play, Website, Blog, Article, Radio or Television Show, Course, Film, Workshop
Communication, information and negotiation are now set to peak for you. Depending on how much hard work you did since the end of 2018, you will now be on a roll, throughout September, October and November. Very commonly, the transit of Jupiter in your Third House will result in a special and successful book, play, website, blog, article, radio or television show, film, workshop, speech, debate and so on. It’s about the word. Sometimes the image or idea, but usually the word. Jupiter is here to fix issues, raise your game, expand your chances and take you to bigger and better outcomes.
If there are fundamental issues here about literacy, language barriers, speech therapy, eyesight, hearing and the rest - you can bank on Jupiter wheeling out a solution. The reason it has taken so long, is Jupiter’s retrograde motion. Now he is at large! Dates to watch for boosting and accelerating your big idea include (allow 24 hours) September 2nd, 10th, 17th, 21st and 29th. I also need to mention the impact of the planet Ceres on your planning.
This is an ancient symbol of fierce compromise, so none of this will be a picnic. You don’t just get the Fortnum’s hamper wheeled out with the Pol Roger flowing. Libra, you will have to tussle over rights, roles and responsibilities. There may be quite emotional questions about who or what is in control; who or what is entitled. This is all pretty predictable on a cycle like this. Just get stuck in and use your famous ability to balance the scales, to bring a genuine sense of fair play into proceedings. The outcome will still be very successful. The United Kingdom was created, on an Act of Union that took place on the day they discovered Ceres. One way or another, your way with words, ideas and images will see you right; it will involve work, though!
Bringing Order and Organisation to Your Lifestyle
You need to bring order and organisation to your lifestyle, on a day-to-day basis, Libra. At the moment everything appears to be quite random. There is no ‘method and order’ as such, and any idea of ruthlessly managed scheduling has gone out of the window. In fact, it’s been about seven or eight years of this, so September 2019 isn’t particularly different. Yet - the potential for confusion is far higher, as we have quite a pointed opposition between Neptune and Mars on 14th September, which doesn’t do you any favours. You may as well nip something in the bud as soon as you can.
The Sixth House of your chart is where we find Neptune, and as he is a symbol for all that is comfortably numb, to quote Pink Floyd, you need to look at where you apply the anesthetic to your life. What ‘numbs’ reality in terms of your paid work, unpaid work, university or college degree - and the housework? It may be a case of Mother’s Little Helper here, or what used to be known in Australia as ‘a Bex and a good lie-down.’
The internet, via your mobile telephone, is a good anesthetic. Essentially, this isn’t just about work, paid work or study. It is also about your mental health and your physical fitness and wellbeing. This brings in questions about your doctor, healer, personal trainer, prescribed drugs, illegal drugs, food and drink. You will have your own story going on, Libra.
As it is very common for Sun Libra people to also have horoscope factors in Virgo, there may be a double-whammy message about the mind, body and spirit in September. So, don’t hesitate. If you feel you need to check something or do some research, then get cracking. This is particularly important on the Full Moon, which you will see building in size over your house or apartment, in the night skies near 14th September. You may prefer not to schedule anything dramatic then (allow 13th, 14th, 15th September) but instead, use this D-Day moment to organise yourself later on in the month.

Friends and Groups
Billy Bragg sang ‘There is power in a union’ and so there is. There is power in any brotherhood or sisterhood, and you can double that message if both genders are involved. This may be a baseball team. A political party. An opera company. You are either deeply involved with this kind of circle in September, or strongly affected by the same. Either way you have a ton of decisions to make, and it is worth deepening your understanding of how this community of people works, and what makes the wheels go around. You can do this even if you have been a card-carrying member for years.
Friends are very much part of the circle. In fact, it may have been a good friend who first introduced you, or you may have roped somebody else in. Friendships can also be made of people who were once just acquaintances; part of the team. Near September 14th, on the Full Moon, you will reach a moment of truth with these people. A point of no return. Do you stay or do you go? Maybe you stay, but with changes accepted and agreed. In fact, the whole month is about realising that sometimes a group is as crucial as a marriage. A friend is as important as a parent.
The core of this group is its shared goal. All for one, and one for all. It can’t ever be about power, money, sex, status, politics. (Even though its avowed purpose may be political). At its heart it should be about equality between the many different classes, genders, ages and races involved. So, is it? That is a key question that dominates the month, before your big Full Moon choice.
Babies, Children, Teenagers, Young Adults, Sexual Relationships
You may be a grandmother with an adult daughter. A wife who is looking sideways at her husband’s lover, who has just become pregnant. You may be dealing with your son (again). Your godchild may be just as important as your own child. There may be young adults (old enough to be your own children) with whom you must deal on a professional or unpaid basis. Scorpio, the spread of possibilities on this Neptune cycle is vast! Your personal life is - your very own personal life.
Parenthood-potential sexual relationships are also part of this cycle and that can mean a one-night stand or a marriage. Now, more than ever, you need to weed out what/who is confusing the issue. Feeling that you are in over your head, is a sure sign things have gone too far. A girlfriend’s adult children, for example, and their natural father - may be part of the necessary weeding. Neptune is a symbol of all that is hidden, confused, rather messy, hard to see, hard to organise and deeply mysterious. It can be baffling. It can also bring distorted perspective, so the chances that you, he and/or she are not seeing things clearly or accurately is very high!
Avoid the Mars-Neptune opposition on September 14th and the days either side. It’s unhelpful. We also have a Full Moon on the same day. The potential for mess is very high on the 13th, 14th, 15th. More than anything else you need boundaries. Lines have been crossed so often, in so many places, and for such a long time - that they have ceased to exist. You need new rules, as the situation will not fix itself, owing to the personalities of the people involved, or the rather porous, leaky situation which has grown up around them.
Making or Saving a Fortune
If you play your cards right, you will make or save a small fortune between now and the end of November 2019. You have been thwarted in your progress to date, because Jupiter has been retrograde. Now is in full thrust and in September, very much on your side. You will have to cut deals, make compromises and strike a bargain, Scorpio. Yet, it is entirely worth it, because over the next four months you are going to eradicate one of your biggest issues, and also stand to be rewarded, very handsomely.
This may be about your legacy, shares, inheritance, business, charity, taxation, house, apartment or valuables. Insurance, divorce settlements, government allowances, superannuation or pensions and so on. Foreign exchange rates are worth watching. How might you collect? The 2nd, 10th, 17th, 21st, 29th are all useful dates to scan, allowing 24 hours either side.
Jupiter is a force for good in the horoscope. Always has been, always will be. If you follow the rules (and let’s hope you were reading your horoscope at the end of last year) then you collect. One example might be a generous friend allowing you to rent her country home for next to nothing. Another example might be trebling the value of your investment in an electric car company. You get the picture. Sometimes you have to do nothing at all, and your house becomes an AirBnB money maker.
I mentioned deals and compromises. Absolutely true. Yet, you are rather good at that, if you are typical of your sign. Ceres is also in this zone of your chart and she is a symbol of tremendous bargaining, done with deep reserves of emotion, but in the interests of new arrangements and fresh agreements. You could both/all end up so much better off. So set aside feelings and concentrate on the dollars, euros or pounds which are to be saved or made.
Your Soul or Spirit
The stellium in Libra, one sign behind you, points to an important month for all that is behind closed doors, or behind the scenes. This is your spiritual self. Your soul. Your conscience. Your relationship with your God, perhaps, or your relationship with the universe around you, via astrology. Angels and demons? Heaven and earth? All that is classic food for thought in a month like this. You will draw your own conclusions and make a new beginning near September 28th. You may, for example, be received into the Roman Catholic Church near that date - or make your first appointment with a psychologist. Some people might say it’s the same thing.
Lifestyle, Workload, Mental Health, Fitness, Physical Well-being, Housework
Everything that does not add up here, helps you come up with a solution, Scorpio. It’s rather like that Smiths song, The Boy with a Thorn in His Side. You have something prodding you in September and it will make you swing into action. Your lifestyle as a whole cannot be separated into compartments, as your mental health goes hand-in-hand with your ability to turn up to work. Your housework is affected by your back. What you eat, affects how you sleep - and that in turn affects how you feel about performing your duty in an unpaid role with a charity. On it goes! September is the month to note what/who is clunking and sticking, rather than flowing - and promise yourself you’ll get onto it. Salacia and Chiron in Aries in your Sixth House tell me that you are in a position where you can get away with the most astonishing things at the moment.
Getting away with what your old self might have thought was outrageous, or beyond the pale, or unacceptable in some way - is actually rather normal now. Only you can decide if you are going too far. And, as I said, it’s about your lifestyle as a whole. You’d have to imagine 27th September is one of the key dates for your decisions, too.

The New You is the Old You - Remodeled for 2019-2021
Who cares about image? Well, if you’re an influencer on Twitter, your face and name translates into money. If you are an actor, your face is also your fortune. We are now getting down to the basics of your mother’s nose, father’s height DNA, or your weight. Your reputation (as it stands on Google) and your capacity for self-promotion. Sagittarius, you would have to try very hard indeed to avoid a relaunch, makeover or rebirth near these dates: 2nd, 10th, 17th, 21st, 29th September. This is ongoing as well - in fact the process won’t be finished until the opening days of December.
It is to your total advantage. You will expand your influence across the worldwide web and across town. You will eradicate one or more issues affecting the way you look - or the way you are seen. Depending on the work you did since late 2018, it is possible you will become famous, or just find a better kind of fame. If you need to clear your name or sort things out, then this is also the period in which to pursue solutions.
Jupiter in Sagittarius is taken a long time to do its work, as this planet has been retrograde, or appearing to travel backwards and get stuck, for several months. Yet, now this cycle is at full throttle. You also have Ceres in Sagittarius, your own zodiac sign, so there will be a fierce compromise over how you are seen - and how you appear. This may be with your publicist, stylist or similar, depending on your job. It may be (very commonly) a major compromise with a personal trainer or weight-loss coach. The final quarter version of yourself, at least as far as the internet is concerned, is the same ‘new you’ who will be at the heart of so many questions about the way things were back in the early Millennium - but that doesn’t happen until May 2020 and 2021.
Success, Ambition, Position and Mission
Heavy Virgo weather at the highest point of your horoscope makes this the busiest and most important month of the year for your career, unpaid work or university/college degree. The first seven days brings a perfect blitz of discussions and decisions, and then by about 14th September, at the Full Moon, hanging so low, white, bright and light above the horizon - you feel as if there is some kind of spotlight on your Curriculum Vitae. Actually, Sagittarius, there is. Though you may prefer to skip the 13th, 14th, and 15th entirely for decisions about your job, voluntary role or degree. Life will be a stretch then anyway, and there are easier times to go in and clarify things. There is more to this current question mark about your life path, too, because of another cycle you are going through!
This is the historic Uranus in Taurus cycle, which can only occur once in your adult life. It began in May 2018 and by now, you should be seeing just what it brings to your working day; your lifestyle; your work ethic; your daily routine. This is pretty revolutionary by your old standards and September seems likely to bring everything to a head, though there may be a further big decision about your career, degree or unpaid role in May 2020.
You have already been thrown two, three or four most unexpected curve balls. The last thing you expected, actually, in terms of the person or organisation - or the actual role or project. Quite mad. Also, rather exciting. I hope you can see that apart from having things happen *to* you in 2018-2019, you have also been quite proactive. It is you who has seen the light and been slowly but surely trying to build a different future for yourself. One in which you are less tied down. One in which you have bags more room to move, so you can explore and expand within your special area of skill or interest.
Other waves and ripples have been occurring. Life is not the same. In September you will begin to see why this might have been happening, and what it is suggesting for your future. It’s really early days, Sagittarius, but if you were reading your horoscope over the last nine months, and you have been proactive - then you are turning the key in your own lock - and by 2020 or 2021 you could be free. Oh, so free.
House, Family, Apartment, Town, Country, Household
You periodically have these reminders about boundaries within the family or the household. This may be your parents, your daughter, your flatmate/roommate or a tenant who lives with you. The boundaries are likely to be spatial, so we’re talking about people who spread everywhere, all over the place, all the time! They may be more subtle and very much about your privacy, your personal space or your own particular parameters. The relative who drops in can be an issue on this kind of cycle.
So which kind of cycle? Well, it’s Neptune’s transit in Pisces, a random sign at the best of times, in the Fourth House of your solar chart, which describes the rooms in your home, but also the garden and surrounds. The street and local area. Your country - so issues about border control. Also, most certainly, the family circle on all sides and how it functions (or not). We also have to include your landlord, landlady, tenant, lodger and the shared household of renters. You could include neighbours too.
Neptune needs control and monitoring, like oozing substances in Ghostbusters. Incidentally, hauntings are not unknown on this cycle either. You have an ongoing challenge here, because this is a long cycle, but if you want ‘a life less messy’ then you will be pretty strict with yourself and others this month. In fact, Sagittarius, if you just let things run, you are going to hit the mother of all moments of truth on the Full Moon of 14th September.
As Neptune rules water, be aware of the potential for storms, flooding, weak swimming pool or pond walls and so on. You would obviously be looking at washing machines, the plumbing and the bathroom or shower too. This is worth mentioning as some of you Sagittarius have horoscope factors in Cancer too, and that rules the home.
Without examining each and every manifestation of Neptune’s transit, let’s just say that home and family need work and effort. Help yourself out here by avoiding 13th, 14th, 15th September for some kind of family summit, or roof repair, or local council application. The astrological weather then is just too hard and you’re better off trying to control things later in September or later this year. You can double that message if drugs, prescription drugs or alcohol seems to play a bigger part in your family or household than seems normal!
Sexual Relationships, Babies, Children, Teenagers, Young Adults
You are now in a completely different space, where pregnancy, babies, schoolchildren, teenagers or younger adults (old enough to be your own children) are concerned. This also extends to sexual relationships with parenthood potential. You are well and truly out of the long Uranus in Aries cycle which dominated your life for so many years - when nothing could ever be predicted for very long - and everything ultimately came down to your own independence, space and freedom, or that of another person.
In its place you have teachers, lecturers, mentors around you (perhaps) or organisations and situations designed to instruct you. There is a strong educational theme showing up in 2019 and it is emphasised in September. What you are being shown is pretty unusual: almost anything goes! Forget the old rules or attitudes, the old assumptions or expectations. You are now in quite wild territory, as Chiron goes through Aries. There is also a sense that nothing is real. Nothing is usual or ordinary. That brings in an even greater idea about experimentation but also escapism. You may be a parent, you may not. You may have a paid or unpaid involvement with younger people or leave them well enough alone…yet September will give you a complicated education. More conservative, traditional or conventional individuals might find your experiment hard to digest, but perhaps it’s the future of parenting. The future of generation gaps. The future of particular sexual relationships.
Friends and Groups
The hands-down most important period of 2019 for your group, and the friendships within that group, is September-October. We have an important New Moon on 28th September. As New Zealand is far, far in front of America you may need to allow for the 27th through 29th of September as the time to make your fresh start. That means you are across all the time zones on Twitter and on your email. You could join a new group then or put more energy into an existing involvement, essentially rebooting your membership or commitment.
One of the funniest things about the internet is the rise and rise of inexperienced amateur astrologers, who also dabble in the occult and witchcraft - who seize upon each and every New Moon as some kind of gateway to instant sex or money. Actually, a New Moon is nothing of the kind. So please ignore the purple candle brigade who tend to go into overdrive at this time.
A New Moon is a new beginning. The birth of something or someone unprecedented. It can be tough. It can be great. It depends on your chart. So…this New Moon is strong. It works. It makes the road from September to October so clear for you. But it’s tailored to your social life, your social media, and the organised networks or communities of people you are involved with. An environmental organisation, for example, or your jazz band. I am sure you have your particular team, club, society, association or similar front-and-center as you are reading this. They are all, or mostly, friends.
You will launch yourself and the others in a strong new direction very close to the end of September, following a whole month of intriguing discussion, questions without answers, and questions *with* answers too. Inner debate and a lot of ‘What if’ will have taken place, particularly near 16th September when Mercury and Venus both oppose Chiron. From these conversations and emails, these Twitter notes, will come this firm fresh start, as October is just around the corner. And that new direction with old and new friends, and the group, will keep you pretty busy until April 2020, when it’s time to examine how it’s all going.

Your Inner Life, Soul, Spirit and Inner Self
This is the beginning of a three-month period of massive potential, Capricorn, in terms of your inner life, soul, spirit, psyche, psychology and inner self. Jupiter and Ceres are here across September, October, November to help you knock over any obstacles and remove any ongoing issues. You may have a phobia for example. There may be inner demons regarding your conscience that stop you sleeping. You may have guilt to live with. A dark secret. A skeleton in your closet. All this is textbook stuff when you have Sagittarius transits, as this is a clean-up and clear-out cycle ahead of new improvements.
This is intensely personal and unless your partner or best friend is also your confidante/confessor, it’s pretty unlikely you talk about it. In the Middle Ages this cycle was associated with solitary confinement in prison, or a major outpouring of your soul to your rabbi or priest. It was also associated with nuns and their deal with God. I often quote Kate Bush in my astrology, because I am a fan. In her song Running Up That Hill, she talks about ‘making a deal with God’ and that sums up exactly what is going on in September, October, November. I’ll give you some dates in a moment. You may not believe in God at all but have a vision of the universe in relation to astrology. One would assume, as you have read this far! Perhaps your philosophy or faith is tailored to you, borrowing from Buddhism, or Quantum Mechanics. It is essentially about your core self - your very being - your essence. Near the 2nd, 10th, 17th, 21st, 29th the deal-making will be quite emotionally intense.
We associate this cycle with the need for a psychologist, psychiatrist or psychic. And perhaps that is part of your bigger answer. The good news is, Jupiter is always good news! He was ‘the greater benefic’ to astrologer working in the 17th century and he is known to the Chinese as well as the Indians - as The Year Star and also Guru. At this time of year, you will come across an inner light which shows you that you are, in fact, your own best guru. You know what to do about this stuff. Your inner self.
Foreign People and Places, Worldwide Web, Publishing, Education and Academia, Regional Differences
Some or all of the above will ping into your in-tray in September. You have heavy Virgo weather ahead, Capricorn, so you have quite a lot of chain-reaction decisions about travel and travelers, distant places and other nationalities, the internet and books, universities and education in all its forms. There is likely a connecting link between two or more of the items on that list, so you may be teaching an Italian (and you don’t speak Italian) - or you may be involved with Saudi Arabia, and specifically its interest in Facebook. You get the picture.
The dates which are most important are the 2nd, 3rd, 4th of September so you really crash into this month with a bang. It’s pretty clear you’ll be at a crossroads decision at the Full Moon on the 14th, but try to make it later if you can (the 13th, 14th, 15th are a worldwide window to questions without answers, and you don’t really need that in your life). I don’t think you’re going to avoid a destiny-changing ‘yes’ or ‘no’ or ‘maybe’ by October, but at least try to avoid the Full Moon period. You will see it big, light, white and bright in the sky. It’s your reminder to leave some choices for later. Apart from anything else, if you are travelling at that time, the Mars-Neptune opposition along with the Full Moon makes extreme weather likely.
Email, Telephone, Language Differences, Skype, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Zoom, Multimedia
In relation to the above, and also with your public transport, helicopter, yacht or car - you are now in ‘priority organisation’ mode for September. You have been living with muddle and occasional mess regarding the same for years. In fact, it has become a way of life. The fishbowl atmosphere of Facebook with its famous lack of boundaries is one example. You could actually pull in the entire internet with all its phishing and weirdly anonymous faces! And, of course, it extends to your mobile telephone.
Neptune in your Third House of communication, information and transportation in September needs some sharp decisions and no-nonsense clarification. A few rules and a lot of boundaries. Without that, it does not improve by itself. In fact, March 2020 would be even more complicated. So, figure out who/what is behind this situation, where you so frequently feel all at sea, and make September the month you face it. Make your life easier by avoiding the Full Moon near the 14th to do that: go earlier or much later.
Ambition, Position, Mission
After a month of questioning, new information, debate and discussion, you will take a completely new direction with your career, university/college degree or unpaid work, on September 28th. You could allow a day either side of that, for the world to catch up with itself, as New Zealand is so far in front of America. You’ll sort a lot of things out on September 16th, 17th and that is really the time to separate the questions you have about your house, apartment, family, household, town or country - from the larger issues about where you are going, why you are going there - and what you have to do to hang on. So, it goes in two phases. The middle of September is the moment to start talking, seriously. And then the end of September is the choice. You may find yourself with a different job or project, for example.
House, Apartment, Family Tree, Residence, Household, Town, Country
September (what a month!) is also notable for its challenge to your old ideas about what is ‘right’ or normal, or appropriate, or the done thing. Forget all that. You are being shown what you can wriggle away with, and that is certainly not what more traditional types would approve of. The person, group, organisation or situation which is in front of you near September 16th and 27th is an invitation to do something quite audacious. Such chutzpah! Such temerity! Such audacity! (All key words for Chiron given to astrologers by Dennis Elwell). Yet, somehow, you just know you’re going to gallop off and do it all. Or say it. Sometimes you find yourself pushing the boat out, because somebody else has driven you to it. I call the Chiron cycle ‘jaws on the floor’ time because that is exactly what you find yourself doing, or what you provoke in others. Essentially you are finding where the new goalposts just moved to. Because they have and they are not going back. This may be your tenant, your attic conversion or your grandmother.

New Income, Tax Bills, Property, Charity, Banks, Credit and Debit Cards, Legacies, Inheritance, Business
You have a big month ahead for your calculator, Aquarius, so get ready to stare down the dollars, pounds or euros. You will end up figuring out for yourself who/what is an unnecessary expense or waste of money. You will also figure out what has a bigger price tag for you, in terms of its inherent value and worth. In this way you create a new life budget. Oh, it might seem to be about a big bank loan to pay a tax bill. It may even be the clever tax deductions you provide. Perhaps it seems to ‘only’ be about your former partner and your mortgage, and his debts to you. It goes on. But actually, Aquarius, September is about coming up with a new and intensely personal budget composed of your own unique ideas about how it’s going to be. The 2nd, 3rd, 4th are fast and furious. Avoid the 14th - Full Moon.
You’ll find the first week throws you straight into the deep end in September as you must stare down the money going in and going out. There is also a pretty obvious muddle or mess to clean up, as everything has been all over the place, everywhere, all the time - so random! In fact, this has been going on since you left particular things unfinished in March (or others did). Now is the time to rein it all in. Put back the old rules or make some new rules. Yet, the Full Moon on the 14th (allow 24 hours either side) is not the time. A Full Moon is D-Day. In fact, D-Day itself happened on a Full Moon. There is something unavoidable or inevitable about what comes to pass, then, but if you are ever going to sort things out, it may as well be September. Think about acting later in the month, though, or even beyond that. When the Sun is at odds with the Moon, you are always at odds with yourself, or other people, organisations or situations seem at odds with you. Watch.
Friends and Groups - The Good News is Great News
As a true Sun Aquarius person you are the supplier to groups, communities, circles, networks, teams, political parties, bands, popular movements or good causes. You don’t actually get in there and immerse yourself. Yet, you are the person upon whom everything revolves, for much of the time. This role was made for you and from September, into October and November, you will come into your own. Luck and timing are on your side. Right people, right place, right month.
Nothing has delivered yet, but if you have been making all the right noises since the end of 2018, you will be extremely happy with the outcome - for your group, for your friends and for yourself - no later than the opening days of December. You find fulfilment, answers, solutions, breakthroughs and highlights this month too, though. In fact, the 2nd, 10th, 17th, 21st and 29th are all days of jet-propulsion. Allow 24 hours either side.
This may be the old band getting back together again, the new band - or something less structured, like good friendships (the real thing, not the weird corporate substitute). Aquarius, you are a sucker for people power because you have seen it working in your life so very well, from childhood, though to your adolescence, and beyond. Now, you are about to be shown what the reward of compromise actually is.
Ceres alongside Jupiter in Sagittarius is most interesting, because there’s a very old story here, going back about 2000 years, about happy endings as a result of hard compromises. You can look Ceres up on Search if you are curious about that. She was reclassified as a planet in 2006 and 13 years later, she’s still being ignored by so many astrologers - but she’s a powerful symbol of demotion, resizing, downsizing, upsizing, promotion, mergers and the like. All together now. This is a new beginning.
It may be ‘just’ friendship or ‘just’ the meditation group, but actually it’s way more than that. So, despite the fierce sense of entitlement you are seeing in and around the group, try to go for the big one. The communal high of the people-power achievement. Better than anyone else, you understand that. There may be some time share involved. The control or power will certainly have to be distributed in a new way, among the people in your group. Expect a different ranking, too, of personal influence, popularity, clout and the rest. It happens.
Multimedia, Publishing, World Wide Web, Communication, Information
The two horoscope zones which rule your way with words, ideas, images and technology are loaded in September. You are actually working your way towards a new beginning or fresh start, which will come close to 28th September on the New Moon. This might be your blog, book, thesis, radio show, article and so on. The Third and Ninth houses of your chart are also associated with languages of all kinds from HTML to French. Or Latin (which we poor astrologers have to get to grips with at University if we are to do our jobs properly).
Communication, information and transportation also tend to go together, so September looks like an important month for your car, your public transport, helicopter, short-haul trips and the like. In fact, you could once again say that close to 28th September you are ready for the next chapter or new phase.
The really crucial thing in all of this is your teacher. Some organisation, person or situation is here to educate you about how to be heard and read. How to get your message across, just as you wish. I don’t think there is anything remotely traditional or conventional about this. It’s rather like being taught by Robin Williams in full flight, in Dead Poets’ Society. Mr. Chips? Possibly Joyce Grenfell at full throttle at St. Trinians. The thing is, Aquarius, you have spent years dealing with nothing short of a revolution in the way you write, publish, absorb information, deal with the media, video, film, television, podcasts or languages of all kinds. It’s been years and years of radical change, as your ruler Uranus has blitzed through the sign of Aries, and the Third House of your chart. Now, you have Chiron there. And Salacia. So, just when you thought you’d seen it all, you really haven’t, and September will make that point to you. If you are curious about Chiron or Salacia, you can look them up on Search. Their cycles influence your use of the worldwide web for quite some time, Aquarius.

Success, Ambition, Status, Achievement
You are now at a point in the year when you could so easily be promoted, have a huge hit, land a prestigious job, win an award or be offered a flattering voluntary role. We also think about rank and status when dealing with the very top of your horoscope, so this may be about a socially advantageous marriage for you, or letters after your name. You have now, October and November to take advantage of every solution and opportunity which appears, Pisces. Don’t miss a trick.
You are at the heart of ongoing demotions, promotions, mergers and above all, reshuffles, either within your current organisation, or actually right across your chosen field. People and organisations are going up, down and sideways and there is a tremendous shift in the balance of power, as Ceres plays her part. This potent dwarf planet is herself a symbol of some loss of power - but gains in other areas. Thus, we have to turn to the people at the top of the building. We’re looking at managers, executives, bosses, directors, leaders and so on. The elite. This mountain is also very much about middle management (always ambitious) and the lower orders, and who knows where you fit in? It depends on how your chosen profession, industry, business or field is structured, I guess. Or your social order.
The idea of fixing problems, moving up through the ranks, getting to the top, eliminating obstacles and so on, is at the heart of September. The dates to watch (allow 24 hours either side as New Zealand is always ahead of America) include September 2nd, 10th, 17th, 21st, 29th. As the world catches up with itself, you should be able to catch a highly desirable project, role, title, or big win on the board. It is also possible that your career, unpaid employment or university/college situation is just crying out for some kind of big rescue operation or dramatic finish - in which case, look no further than September.
You’d have to expect the pinnacle of all this to occur during the New Moon in Sagittarius, by the way, and just in case your organisation or industry is talking dates, we’re looking at the New Moon on 26th November. A couple of months away. I always say of Jupiter, ‘From little acorns, big oak trees grow’ because the Romans, who gave us our astrology, associated Jupiter with oak. Whatever you are growing, or replanting, in September could have an astonishing growth spurt by 26th November.
You tend to get shrieks of entitlement or growls of dominance on Ceres transits, and although so many mainstream astrologers ignore her (and NASA) this reclassified planet is here to stay in your horoscope. Along with the growth spurt and the acorn that suddenly becomes an oak, you also have to do try to manage the shrieks or growls with all the sensitivity, empathy, compassion and downright E.S.P. that Sun Pisces people are famous for. Put yourself in her shoes/his shoes/their shoes. It will help.
Your Former, Current or Potential Partner. Your Rival, Enemy or Opposition
Avoid September 13th, 14th, 15th for substantial decisions, discussions or action plans involving the person I name above. You may have a couple of ‘other halves’ or ‘other sides’ to deal with on those dates. The Full Moon is on the 15th but I allow a day either side for my readers in Tasmania, where I spend one quarter of the year - as well as my readers in Great Britain (hello there, Professor Brian!)
This Full Moon is a doozy because it falls on the same day as a Mars-Neptune opposition. Neptune rules you, so you really don’t want that. This is about your wife. Your greatest critic (this may also be your wife). It is about your former husband. The lover your fantasies about having an affair with. Essentially, we are talking about the face on the opposite end of the see-saw. The person on the other end of the scales, from you.
The Seventh House, where we find this action, is not always about love and sex. It can be about a work partnership. It can also be about someone who is against you, quite possibly in a legal situation. It can be a professional rival who is constantly outsmarting you, for example.
You can allow for the first two weeks of September to be spent chuntering away, sorting out pros and cons about/for/with this person. Then you have the bridge to cross on the Full Moon. Allow more time and space then and cross it slowly. Some of you will be pursuing a separation. Some of you will be tossing up having another baby or moving in together. Some of you are thinking about a professional partnership, or the break-up of one. Do your research.
The elephant in the room, never mind the love and sex part - or the legal dispute - is actually yourself. Your own image, reputation, personal appearance, title, brand, profile and persona. So, let’s talk about Neptune in Pisces.
Neptune in Pisces and September 2019
You have been living in a different world, in regard to your brand, face, name, shape, style, profile, title - for about 8 years now. When you live with a Neptune cycle like this, in your own sign, it can creep up on you in the most subtle fashion. Just as the sea erodes the cliff chalk in the most imperceptible, slow and steady way - so too have you been dealing with the gradual erosion of the person you used to be. Or, to be specific, Pisces, the person you used to appear to be!
There is nothing really deep about this cycle. It is about your internet self. It is associated with your reputation and your soundbites as much as the way you look, and if ever there was a tropical fish lost in the bowl, it is you. Swimming this way and that, as your Pisces nature suggests, you find yourself (or at least ‘yourself’ in image terms) all over the place, everywhere, all the time. This level of confusion can also muddle other people, and September is really a peak moment in time of that. Are you this or that? Are you him or her? These questions might also dominate when you look at your wardrobe, or sort out your hair, or look at your photographs or video clips.
We have quite a few patterns hitting Neptune in September which is why it’s a bigger deal than usual. Rather than over-egg the pudding, you may prefer to avoid the Full Moon period (September 13th-15th) to relaunch yourself, your name, reputation, profile, title or look. It’s just really hard work. In general, September is best used to step back and look at yourself, from the outside. If you are not impartial enough to do that, then try to ask a clever and sensible friend. What’s going on with you? As far as the internet is concerned. There’s your starting point for a bit of tidying up.
The Money, Business, Shares, Property, Charity, Valuables
The strong Aries-Libra weather of September will result in a big new beginning for you with your income, bank, taxation, shares, company, charity, debts, legacy, inheritance or possessions. The 28th September (allow a day either side) is the deadline for all that is new. The sense that this is somehow a different phase in your life is quite correct. This goes beyond the actual deal, signature or arrangement. You are at the beginning of a new cycle, you see, and with Chiron and Salacia both in your zone of values, as well as valuables, you are about to inspect your value system too.
So, for example, if you are selling a wine and giving 25% to a good cause, does the fact that some of the purchasers have a drink problem stop you? Or, if you are employing lots of Millennials in your new business, but only paying them cheap intern rates, does that offend our soul? Or, if you are dealing with marriage and mortgage, or family and inheritance, which is very common on this cycle - how does your soul speak to your bank manager?
One thing is sure. Nothing is particularly real-world about what is going on! Yet, you are also being taught (by people or by experience) that what is supposed to be beyond the limit, beyond the pale or ‘out of the question!’ is actually not. As I said, it depends on your own value system. Your unique life budget has nothing to do with what other people think. So, September is really a stretching exercise - stretching your trust in your decisions, at the end of September - as well as stretching other people’s tolerance levels. Again, and again in astrology and history, we see cycles like this enabling Sun Pisces people like you to get away with it. To get away with absolutely all of it! You are really your own judge, on this one.
