If your first thought before reading this was “wake me up at the end of September”, you are not alone. This month will be action-packed with transits, some heavier than others, so it’s no wonder September 2020 will be the worst for those with personal placements in Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.
While the transits ahead appear to be more difficult for the air signs, the rest of the zodiac signs will feel the effects as well. The month of September kicks off at full speed with a mystical Full Moon in dreamy Pisces on the second day of the month, followed by Mercury’s transition to charming Libra on September 3 and Venus’ big debut in Leo on September 6.
It is always interesting to observe the energetic changes that accompany the transits of Mercury and Venus. In Libra, for example, the messenger god will intellectualize situations with a righteousness-seeking mindset.
Mercury in Libra has a strong focus on the equality of both parties, which makes it an ideal transit for negotiations and compromises. Venus in Leo will add a little something extra to relationships, as the planet of love prefers royal treatment when in transit through Leo’s fixed fires.
Mars will retrograde in Aries from September 9 to November 13, which will challenge you to re-evaluate your levels of assertion and decide what is really worth fighting for in your life. Lucky Jupiter stations direct in Capricorn on September 12, which always comes with a good lift, followed by the New Moon in Virgo on September 17.
Just in time for a fresh start, the Sun will shift into dazzling Libra on September 22, the Autumn equinox, followed by Saturn stationing direct on September 29. Knowing what lies ahead for the month of September, here’s why it will more than likely be a challenge for air signs:
You feel under pressure in your professional life. Don’t be so hard on yourself, Gemini. Getting through the first half of September will be the most difficult and even then there is nothing to worry about.
With the Sun in Virgo shaking your fourth domestic house of home, family, and emotional foundation, you might feel the urge to go inward and perhaps spend some time with your loved ones. It doesn’t hurt to take a step back this month, especially with the Pisces Full Moon lighting up your career sector.
If something in your professional life is not brought to your attention during this time, then something needs to be recognized and/or adjusted. Lucky for you, your governing planet, Mercury, will be in Libra, which will automatically caramelize your powers of persuasion. Use your words wisely.
You are re-evaluating yourself and your relationships. Your birthday season is fast approaching, Libra. With the Sun igniting your secretive 12th house of closure, spirituality, intimacy, and all things behind the scenes, you’ll feel a lot more introspective than usual.
This usually happens just before your solar return, so it is a season of reflection and release. Aggressive Mars will also retrograde via your committed seventh house of compromise, negotiation, and one-on-one partnerships, which could suddenly make you revisit past confrontations and passionate storylines.
So, whether it’s with a friend or an ex-significant other, this is an opportunity for you to stand up for yourself and what you really believe in.
You are being scrupulous about your sex life. Your ego doesn’t exist this season, Aquarius. At least not for the first half of the month. With the Sun lighting up your eighth house of intimacy, death, transformation, and shared resources, everything about what you receive or lack will be highlighted during this time.
The Pisces Full Moon will bring clarity to your pleasure-seeking house of possessions, finances, and self-esteem, so feel free to take a step back and remember who you are.
Jupiter and Saturn will station direct in your secretive 12th house of spirit, and these two planets will begin to shed light on some of the unconscious patterns that you have yet to break free from. Take a deep breath and trust the process.
