September begins on a rather rash note. The square between Venus and Jupiter on the 2nd reeks of over-optimism and rose-tinted viewing goggles, while on the same day the Sun conjuncts Mars in a display of spectacular impulsiveness. This wouldn’t be so bad if we weren’t basing our actions on poor information – but between the 4th and 10th, Venus, Mercury and the Sun all form oppositions to nebulous Neptune, ensuring that accurate facts are thin on the ground. There is help at hand in the middle of the muddle, from a constructive Mars-Saturn trine on the 8th, but that may be too little too late – Mars squares Jupiter on the 12th and we’re back on the over-optimistic carousel once more.
The Pisces Full Moon on the 14th underlines the somewhat illusory nature of the first two weeks of the month. Mercury and Venus both arrive in Libra on this date, which being an air sign should help to provide some logic. However, the Libra energy is notorious for taking the route of least resistance, and there’s an element here of saying and doing whatever feels least likely to rock the boat.
Mars trines Pluto on the 19th in a powerful cosmic display of intent and purpose. This energy provides exceptionally strong willpower, so those signs who have been paying attention may find this to be the best few days of the month and certainly a chance to make some progress. However, September looks set to end on a sobering note, with Mercury and Venus both squaring up to Saturn on the 22nd and 25th respectively, bringing a somewhat dour energy to play.
