September/October 2020

Aries

 

September

 

This is a major month for you rams, your planet Mars is going retrograde in your own zodiac sign from the 10th of the month. This is a bit like retreating from battle and given yourself a rest from the hustle and bustle of the world. Aries is a sign that likes to face things head on, but this is probably not the best time to engage in any conflict with others.

Your ruling planet remains backwards in the sky this month, creating an opportunity for you to do some inner work on what motivates you in life.

Venus is travelling in your solar 4th house of the home and family and where you feel that you can retreat into the world. On the 15th Venus forms a square aspect with Uranus which is travelling in your own sign, this is a powerful combination that can make you feel you want freedom in self expression but also stability, the polarity will be marked at this point.

 

October

 

The planet Mars over the next four weeks is retrograde in your solar 12th house, this is the placement of the dreams and the unconscious. The meaning of this is how you express your anger and self-assertiveness to other people around you, is it positive or negative? This is a period when you can have a better understanding of your feelings of frustration.

 

Gemini

The Sun shines in the communication part of your chart, meaning you can convey your ideas to others with passion and commitment. The only thing to be aware of is that the Sun is in opposition with the planet Mars in the sky, although not exact, it still can create opinions becoming to dogmatic, especially with others.

 

Virgo

 

September

 

Financial matters are under the microscope during the next four weeks as you seek to improve or at least bring stability to your attitude to money and how you acquire it. This will be magnified on the 24th as your ruler Mercury opposes Mars in the sky, bringing about a slightly cavalier attitude to your personal finances.

 

October

 

Halfway through the month Mercury goes backwards in the communication zone of your chart, this can cause misunderstandings with those close to you. It is best to make sure that you have expressed yourself clearly and not in an ambiguous manner. If you succeed in demonstrating your ability to reach out to others, you might just surprise yourself.

 

Libra

 

September

 

Social activities take prominence this month as Venus moves through your solar 11th house, in traditional astrology, the house of good fortune. This is good time for networking and generally making the right connections to advance in your career aspirations. However, watch out for Mars retrograde in your opposing sign of Aries, other people jealousies could get in the way of your own opportunities.

 

October

 

The planetary energy of Venus travels in the secretive zone of your solar chart, bringing in romantic illusions and dreams that take hold of your imagination. This can be a period when your creative gifts are at their height in terms of inspiration and dedication to a higher purpose. This is all very nice, but if you manage to create something tangible during this time, it will make you very happy.

 

 

Scorpio

 

September

 

Your traditional ruler Mars is travelling in Aries and is also going backwards from the 9th in your solar 6th house. Any health regimes that you have given up in the past might be worth revisiting under this planetary combination.

October

 

On the 6th your modern ruler Pluto turns direct in Capricorn allowing a new sense of purpose in your own convictions to begin to move forward.

This means that you can create plans and become a little more optimistic in your approach to the trials and tribulations of life. The Sun for most of the month is shining in the work area of your chart, so this is a good time to be seen for what you can do with your superiors.

 

 

October

 

Venus transits into your solar 10th house and helps to bring harmony and diplomacy as one of your features that you can use to your advantage.

Capricorn

 

September

 

Your planet Saturn is still retrograde this month until the 30th when it turns direct helping you to focus on the future rather than the past.
