September 2015

Bring on the dynamic duos! The Sun is in Virgo, your seventh house of one-on-one relationships, until September 23, putting your focus on companionship and harmony in both business and personal spheres. Boosting your desire to join forces, growth-oriented Jupiter is also spending its first full month in Virgo after entering this partnership-driven zone on August 11, 2015, where it will traverse until September 9, 2016. For the next year, you could start to see just how freeing and expansive a healthy relationship can be! 
September is a bustling month in the stars, with two game-changing eclipses (a Virgo solar eclipse and an Aries lunar eclipse) shaking up the status quo. Thoughtful Mercury goes retrograde (backward), while magnetic Venus and transformational Pluto correct course and end their reverse commutes. Whew—you won’t know if you’re swimming upstream or downstream as the tides change, Pisces! Forewarned is forearmed, of course, so prepare yourself to just…go with the flow. As if that weren’t enough, serious Saturn will also change signs and settle into Sagittarius for the next two years, bringing structure to your tenth house of career and long-term goals. Most of this happens in the second half of September, so squeeze in one last beach weekend while you can!

The air gets charged around September 13, with the first of September's TWO eclipses. This one, a partial new moon (solar) eclipse in Virgo, hits your seventh house of cooperation and interpersonal relationships. You could meet someone new rather abruptly, or initiate talks to make a current union stronger. This is the first eclipse occurring in Virgo in a series on the Pisces/Virgo axis that kicked off on March 20 (with a Pisces solar total eclipse in your first house of self). Running through 2017, this series will help revamp your personal identity and one-on-one relationships: Striking the proper balance between "me" and "we" is your mission for the next couple years. Before you can effectively form your dynamic duo, you need to get clear on who you are and how you interface with the world. Any old tics—people-pleasing, martyrdom or even hiding the truth—will be shaken loose so you can be more authentically yourself—and therefore attract relationships (or build current ones) based more on who you REALLY are. Illusions begone!
Be vigilant with your finances from September 17-October 9, when communicator Mercury turns retrograde (backward) in Libra, your eighth house of shared wealth and assets. Mercury does backspins three to four times a year, foiling interpersonal matters, technology and travel. During this particular cycle, you could have issues around shared finances and joint ventures. The devil’s in the details for the next three weeks, Pisces. Comb through your budgets, statements and records with a keen eye to make sure you haven't missed anything. Take action if you notice weird activity on your bank account; change your passwords and guard against hacking and identity theft. You may also find that communication with a close partner—whether an investor, a coworker or your mate—goes off the rails. Don’t let a misunderstanding go unaddressed, especially if it involves money or some shared part of your life. Old jealousy and possessiveness could flare up during this emotional Mercury cycle. If you’re buying or selling a home, see if you can put off the closing until mid-October, when it’s more favorable to sign papers. (For more on Mercury retrograde, see our post at www.astrostyle.com/mercury-retrograde.)

Also on the 17th, structured Saturn reenters Sagittarius, your tenth house of achievement and professional recognition. At the end of last year, taskmaster Saturn moved into Sagittarius for the first time since 1988, making you more aware of your current career trajectory—and, especially, of any need to correct it. The first half of 2015 may have had a special focus on long-term plans and how you use discipline to achieve your loftiest goals. Your work may also have slowed down or met obstacles as cautious Saturn hit the brakes. 

On June 14, Saturn backed into Scorpio for a brief final visit to your ninth house of expansion. Now, Saturn settles into Sagittarius until December 19, 2017, so get ready to hunker down for the long haul and pay your dues on the career front. Saturn in Scorpio gave you a glimpse of the glittering possibilities and opportunities out there. Now, if you put in the work, you can actually get your dreams into gear!  Do you want a new job, or a new career entirely? Are you seeking more prestige or a hefty raise? If so, get ready for some late nights at your desk—Saturn will really make you earn any accolades you receive; it will be hard-won, but the final applause will be genuine! Nothing happens overnight under Saturn’s gaze, but if you work hard, the status bump will follow in due time. If you have any lingering father issues, you could find yourself working through those, too. Expect relationships with the significant men in your life to go through a slow and steady transformation. You might even tap an expert for help—maybe a trusted therapist or a coach. Learning how to advocate on your own behalf will bring your dreams and aspirations to exciting new heights. (For more on Saturn in Sagittarius, see our post at www.astrostyle.com/saturn-in-sagittarius.)

After September 23, you’re feeling more internal, as the Sun moves into Libra, your eighth house of soul-merging and joint efforts, staying for a month. During this period, you’d much rather bond with your inner circle than go out dancing or attend any crowded events. With Mercury retrograde in this sector, you could find yourself looking back at past connections—ones that seemed meant to be, but, in fact, weren’t. Don’t make any big moves in love or business until after October 9, but spend time reflecting and processing any heavy emotions that have built up. This Mercury retrograde is an excellent period for research. If you're going to ink any permanent mergers, it's worth taking the time for due diligence. 

The month closes on a financial note, as the September 27 total lunar (full moon) eclipse in Aries, your second house of earned income, gives your bottom line a boost. This is the last annual Aries lunar eclipse in a three-part series that started in October 2013. By now, you have a whole different take on your resources and how you build them for greater security. On the 27th, you could get great news about a raise, promotion or even a new job offer. If you have been saving your pennies, you could see great results. Why not celebrate with a well-considered splurge? The second house is always “quality over quantity,” so dole out that cash on something classic that holds great value, i.e. a high-end piece of clothing or a trip to a swanky spa. Since eclipses herald big change, things could change with regard to your finances. Your company could downsize or a client could cancel your services. A colleague could also exit the scene. While it might cause temporary chaos, know that eclipses sweep away anything that no longer serves you. Something better is around the corner! Whatever the development, it might feel overwhelming at first, but in time you will see that there’s one person/thing you can always rely on: Yourself. Take that to the bank, Pisces.

Suddenly soulmates? This month, your love life gets plenty of cosmic action, thanks to the Sun, lucky Jupiter and the September 13 partial solar eclipse in Virgo, your seventh house of commitments. The solar eclipse falls at the new moon, opening up a fresh six-month chapter for relationships. If you want to make room for a partner, steps taken at the eclipse will have an even greater reverb through the universe! You may want to sign up for a dating app, hire a matchmaker or just start to create physical space for that special someone. Paired-off Pisces might advance to the next level—an unexpected proposal or gesture of permanence could arrive mid-month. In some cases, this eye-opening eclipse might prompt you to end a go-nowhere situation in order to make room for a true long-term partner. Is it game over because you two are on different pages? This is a huge turning point, so don’t ignore the signs that the universe is gifting you. If you do need to let go, remember that you're making room for the right person to step in. 
On September 1, love gets a healthy boost, thanks to a conjunction between charming Venus and sultry Mars in Leo, your sixth house of wellness. Couples might want to engage in a shared fitness pursuit, tackle a big organizing project or hit a day spa together. Addressing practical matters may not sound romantic, but when your life is simplified, you’ll have more time for romance. Single Pisces could meet someone at the gym, while browsing the farmer's market or through work. Since the sixth house rules acts of service—one of the five "love languages"—thoughtful gestures could be the way to your or someone else's heart.

This is the second of 2015's three Venus-Mars conjunctions. (Heads-up: The next one is on November 2, in Virgo, your partnership house, giving your happily-ever-after dreams some major rocket fuel!) During this conjunction, Venus is retrograde, so you may need to return to a tried-and-true routine, e.g. making an old favorite meal healthy and going for long walks together like you did when you first met. An ex could also resurface, and this person could even offer golden advice or help you through a difficult situation. Strange as it seems, your old flame probably knows you in ways that few others do. As long as there are no weird vibes or unresolved issues, you might actually be good confidantes for each other! 

Once Venus turns direct (forward) in Leo on September 6, you can focus on the nuts and bolts of your life. Solo and coupled Pisces may find that healthy pursuits are the key to happiness and contentment, so take advantage of Venus here until October 8 by getting fit in every sense. Institute a weekly yoga night with your sweetheart. Check out a social pursuit related to fitness (like this one in Detroit), where you can meet interesting and eligible people while being active! With sexy Mars here until September 24, you have added motivation to put your love life on solid ground—and to get in great shape doing so. 
Loose lips sink ships, Pisces. On September 9, clever Mercury in Libra, your eighth house of soul bonds, forms a tense square to underhanded Pluto in Capricorn, your eleventh house of friendships. Be careful what you share about your personal life, as your confidante may not keep your secrets. And if you have a temptation to snoop, think twice. You are announcing to the universe that you don’t trust your love. Maintain your integrity by being direct about your suspicions—their response should tell you everything you need to know, without having to check their phone or email. Coupled and single Pisces could be seduced into a dangerous liaison with a so-called friend online. It starts so innocently, Pisces. Someone gets you to reveal something intimate (or seemingly intimate) and the next thing you know, your sense of boundaries has dissolved. (Happens to the best of us…) Heed these merited warnings about second chances with “lost loves”, which has become a real issue since we’re all so uber-connected.

Entertaining a mysterious or intriguing connection could also be playing with fire from September 17-October 9, as Mercury is retrograde (backward) in your eighth house of jealousy and betrayal. Your red flags about this person could be flying at full mast…and yet, you may decide to play with fire anyway. (“They were so hot” is actually a bona fide defense here.) If you’re coupled, you might let your possessive side get the best of you. Remember: This relationship is a choice. If your partner is choosing to deceive you, you WILL find out, one way or the other, but don’t dig where it’s not warranted. You may not like what you uncover, i.e. that you have an extremely paranoid side. Since retrogrades rule past connections, an ex could show up, ready to sweep you off your feet. The nostalgia could be overwhelming! Let’s face it: A familiar relationship—even one that was toxic—can hold great seductive appeal. Before you run off and have sex with your ex, though, you may want to think twice. Is it worth opening this proverbial (and deeply complicated) can of worms? 

On September 24, hot-to-trot Mars enters Virgo, your seventh house of one-on-one relationships. From now until November 12, you're motivated and possibly a bit combative in love. Mars can bring sexy sparks, but it can also pile on pressure. You may feel competitive with friends' relationships, or overly goal-oriented. Perhaps you're on the receiving end of someone else rushing you toward a commitment—which only drives up your resistance. Couples may argue more, but virile Mars can also be a boon in the bedroom!

During the last week of September, Mars forms a tricky square to restrictive Saturn in your tenth house of boundaries, setting you up for some astrological whiplash. Mars likes to rush and Saturn likes to delay, so when these planets aren’t speaking in pleasant tones to one another, you could end up with a whole lot of confusion. You could feel pressured to commit or move in together, when deep down, you know it’s not the right time. Or, you could be the one putting your amour’s feet to the fire, i.e. “If you really loved me, you would do X.” Well, you may not be making fair assumptions. Like it or not, there are two of you in this relationship. Syncing up long-term goals is critical—and can take time. There could be delays or restrictions, i.e. one of you has to take on more responsibility at the office, or with family. But, this is life, and you have to deal with what is actually happening, as opposed to what happens in your most beguiling fantasies. Solo Pisces might feel like they have to choose between prioritizing work and romance. Maybe you get a promotion, one that will do wonders for your career, but is located in a small town where you are sure there will be no romantic prospects. It’s not an easy answer. Check out this thoughtful essay on the evergreen work/love conundrum.
Join forces, Pisces! It’s Virgo season—and with your seventh house of collaborations highlighted, you won't want to go it alone. It’s time to make your business partnerships and dynamic duos sizzle. Last month started a fortuitous cycle with expansive Jupiter entering Virgo on August 11 for a 13-month stay. This month, the Sun is in Virgo, heating up your interpersonal sector until September 23. Throw in the September 13 Virgo solar eclipse and opportunities to team up could come out of the woodwork! You could receive an out-of-the-blue offer to join forces with a capable and complementary soul at the midmonth eclipse. Seeds planted that day will blossom over the next six months, so if you meet a prospective partner, do your best to nurture and explore the connection. If a relationship has been on shaky ground, this is a great day to clear the air and get back on track. What can you do to better help each other in your joint and individual efforts? 
Eureka! On September 8, a supportive trine between Mars in Leo, your sixth house of efficiency, and innovator Uranus in Aries, your second house of finances, gives you an ingenious idea for building security and a nest egg. This trine is the only one between Mars and Uranus this year, so use the potent energy to identify your top priorities. With a bit of creativity, you may just open up to a whole new income stream. An online job search could also be fruitful. Reach out to your contacts—maybe a former assistant with a swanky new job has a good tip. Scour LinkedIn for old and new colleagues alike. And while you’re building relationships, don’t forget the “little people”—you might even promote someone if you’re in the position to do so, and they could become your secret business weapon…capable, reliable and whip-smart. 

Steer clear of office gossip around September 9, as communicator Mercury in Libra, your eighth house of power plays, forms a tricky square to manipulative Pluto in Capricorn, your eleventh house of alliances and teamwork. There could be a bad apple in the mix, someone you work with closely but can’t trust. If you have a hot idea, don’t be so keen to share it without an NDA. It’s important to guard against phishing—if a random Facebook request strikes you as suspicious, it probably is. Since identity theft is also an issue, be extra careful with your personal and financial info. This becomes even more vital when communicator Mercury goes retrograde (backward) in Libra from September 17-October 9. This is a great time to change your passwords; the longer the length and more random the characters, the harder it will be for someone to crack it. For more on safeguarding your information, check out this informative post. During Mercury retrograde, be extra cautious with joint ventures and shared funds. It’s not a time to sign on the dotted line unless you've scoured the fine print of any deal. Pooling and loaning money is also risky, unless you’re 100 percent sure that all parties can pull their weight. Even so, it might be best to wait until after the retrograde, perhaps holding off until the October 12 Libra new moon, a fortuitous day for joint ventures and savvy financial moves!
Grab those bootstraps, Pisces: On September 17, disciplined Saturn enters Sagittarius and your tenth house of career advancement, staying until December 2017. If you’ve been floating along on your career path (as your free-flowing sign is wont to do) you may get a wakeup call. You are not going to dance or dream your way into the corner office…not with serious Saturn in your professional domain! It’s time to get down to brass tacks. Instead of expecting an easy handout, you will have to earn every last accolade and advancement. And that’s actually a good thing. In time, you will start to see that success is so much sweeter when you pay your dues. 

And if you've paid enough of them, it's time to advocate for yourself and your own leadership. Maybe you have been following a colleague or boss’ lead for too long. If you don’t get the recognition you deserve, work harder—or go elsewhere. You may get passed over for a promotion or job, or need to really prove your own authority. Don’t wait for permission to rise to the top: Set your sights on a clear target and move slowly but surely in the direction of your long-term aims. 

Saturn wants you to be responsible and maintain your integrity. Own your choices, and when faced with a shady deal, err on the side of total transparency. Sidestepping protocol and cutting corners is a no-no. If your morale gets down, set more structure in place, like a weekly meeting with a mentor or coach, or showing up a half-hour early three days a week to plot your long-term strategy—disciplined action is the only thing that will boost your confidence. With harsh Saturn forming a 90-degree angle to your Sun at some point over the next two years, you could feel pessimistic about what you’re doing and where you’re going. You are used to shining, and opportunities to show your chops may be fewer and father between during this period. But don’t despair—again, there’s a method to this cosmic madness: Hunker down and create a career path that's built to last. By the time it’s over, you could earn your stripes and then some, with credentials and the self-reliance to really make a difference! There's never been a better time to establish yourself as an expert or a master in your field. So keep showing up, Pisces, and build your empire one brick at a time.

But if a team project has been rife with challenges, expect those to clear up as deep-digging Pluto moves direct (forward) in Capricorn, your eleventh house of group activity. Since mid-April, a collaborative dynamic could have been on the skids. If your colleagues have been shady or teamwork has been riddled with negative power dynamics, that should clear up. Or at least, the truth will come out into the open at last! Now, you can harness the considerable will of your group to work toward a healthy and open shared vision. 

Mutual gain is on your mind as go-getter Mars enters Virgo, your seventh house of one-on-one relationships, from September 24-November 12. While you may be driven to get a partnership off the ground, there could also be some delays the first week of the transit, as Mars forms a dicey square to integrity-minded Saturn in Sagittarius, your tenth house of ambition. Sure, this duo may sound like a great thing on paper, but general bureaucracy and protocol could have you rethinking things. Maybe one of the decision-makers has second thoughts, and that trickles down to you. Don’t assume anything, Pisces. It’s completely fine to verify the facts, including your potential partner’s background and resume, as well as your shared long-term goals. If you're going to commit, you really want to make sure you're on the same page, after all. If you’re out of sync with a current partner, this Mars-Saturn clash could be tense. One of you may want to push ahead, while the other thinks it’s wiser to wait. There’s no “right” way to do it, so find a compromise as best as you can. 

And it’s Pisces for the (fiscal) win! On September 27, a total lunar eclipse in Aries shines its illuminating light on your second house of work and money. This is the final Aries lunar eclipse in an annual three-part series that began in October 2013, a cycle that has likely changed the entire way that you handle issues of money, security and self-worth. On the 27th, this game-changing eclipse could bring a payday of significant magnitude. Perhaps you’ve been working away steadily and score a raise or promotion. Or maybe you hear about a new job offer out of the blue, one that's a perfect fit but may require some swift lifestyle adjustments. Contrary to Saturn’s M.O., eclipses can bring instant change—and you may not see this turn of events coming! A job or client may be "eclipsed" out of your life, and if this happens, know that something more lucrative and better suited to your particular skills will open up. Besides, the best way to ensure real stability is to know your own worth, Pisces…and this could be the biggest payday of all. Instead of moving around like a cog in a wheel, you could have a strong moment of pride in what you’re able to contribute professionally. The more you value yourself, the stronger your bottom line.
Fire up the Vitamix! On September 1, beautifying Venus and energizer Mars meet up in Leo, your sixth house of wellness, helping you feel revitalized and in control of your healthiest habits. Since July 25, beautifying Venus has been retrograde, which may have made it harder to get to the gym. On September 6, Venus moves forward (direct) and will stay in this purifying domain until October 8. This is a great time to bring your glow back. Hit the steam room at the gym, or spend a day schvitzing at the Russian-Turkish baths. Even a hot yoga class can make you glow from the inside out! With go-getter Mars here until September 24, you have additional motivation to get your workout on. You could opt for a more strenuous regimen, like lifting weights or long-distance running. Be careful not to injure yourself, though—Mars could make you overly confident in your stamina and a little accident-prone. 
On September 8, revitalizing Mars forms a supportive trine to change-maker Uranus in Aries, your second house of daily habits. This is the only such Mars-Uranus trine in 2015, so go with the revolutionary flow, especially when it comes to your everyday health routines. Find something tried-and-true that feels as effortless as brushing your teeth, like swimming or a yin yoga class. Since Uranus rules technology, one of these innovative apps might jump-start a fitness kick. If you’re curious about a new cutting-edge wellness treatment, give it a whirl. Shake up stale routines and try some inspiring new ones.

Drop and give ‘em 20! Midmonth, taskmaster Saturn enters Sagittarius, your tenth house of discipline, and basically becomes your drill sergeant/personal trainer for the next two years, as it will remain here until December 2017. Starting September 17, you may have an easier time embracing routine. Following a regular schedule for hitting the gym or running laps at the track could really help you feel grounded…not to mention more fit overall. Since the tenth house rules mentors and experts, you may want to hire a coach or trainer. For check-ups and to address health issues, err on the side of caution, incorporating traditional Western medicine with a more holistic approach. You may enjoy a doctor who offers both, like the growing cadre of physicians who also use acupuncture, as described here. Since the tenth house is the domain of father and father figures, you may want to strengthen your relationship with the important men in your life. Some old "dad issues" can arise to be sorted through now. You may find the need in the next couple years to set clearer boundaries with your father or a key man, or to evolve your relationship to a more mature, adult level.
Got a broken handle on that old (emotional) baggage? From September 17-October 9 clever Mercury goes retrograde (backward) in Libra, your eighth house of psychological matters. Mercury’s backspins may help you process old hurts or deeper emotions you've ignored. If you have a trusted therapist, it may be a good time to work through those father issues, or sort through any tangled emotional knots. 

The month ends on a potent note as the September 27 Aries total lunar eclipse highlights your need to prioritize, prioritize, prioritize. This eclipse falls in your second house of daily habits and security. Pare down your busy schedule so that you have enough time for the essentials, like working out and meditating. It could be an eclipse-inspired event that actually prompts the change, like a health issue or a change of job (one that gives you more or less time for your wellbeing). Whatever the case, you may start to think of your exercise and eating habits like essentials—you are training for the marathon that is life. No one else is going to cross the finish line for you, Pisces! It’s time to take impeccable care of your body—the sacred temple for your soul.
