This is another exciting and demanding month for you, Leo, one of further transformation and of forging a better understanding of what you are up to in this lifetime. The key is keeping your head up, and your heart open, as you navigate its complex twists and turns. You are likely to experience your career situation as wildly fluctuating, which could be regarded as either a set of giant opportunities, or else too great a plethora of choices to be handled. As may be obvious, discrimination must therefore be employed, and a healthy dose of skepticism as well, as you attempt to figure things out. Remember, always, that it is your most authentic self-expression that you are seeking. Another area of transformation would be your health regimens, day-to-day activities, and your sense of your life purpose. You must, over time, proceed to clarify your actual goals. Due to the upcoming retrograde of Mercury near month’s end, this process might take all of October to fully complete. In the meantime, watch and wait, trusting your intuition and your angel guidance as you find for yourself the best way forward.

September brings a pragmatic tone with the Sun now transiting in the sign of Virgo which emphasizes your personal assets, your values, and how you go about making a living. The recent Leo emphasis with the New Moon from early August and the more recent Full Moon with the Sun in the last degree of your sign brought an emphasis on issues of identity and also of the important others in your life, lasting through the first week of the current month. This August cycle is related to your desires, your body and more extensively your sense of autonomy in this changing world, and you are still feeling these effects through the first weekend of September.
Shared resources could also come up during the first three days of September as Mars, currently transiting in Virgo, comes into an opposition with Neptune in Pisces. You may feel a sense of idealism related to partners in your life, or perhaps a level of anxiety related to a contract or an agreement you have with someone.
During the first weekend of September, also, from the 3rd to the 5th, Mercury in Libra trine Saturn in Aquarius continues to highlight your partnerships, so that you might be having many dialogues surrounding shared resources at this time. You may be realizing that your need for complete autonomy is not entirely realistic and that there are people who depend upon you, or vice versa. Collaborations could come to be of the utmost importance right now if you are to keep your affairs running smoothly.
The Virgo New Moon on September 6th signals the start of a new perspective related to your personal autonomy and your resources. There are a lot of exciting influences and fresh options available in terms of what’s possible. Uranus in Taurus, corresponding to your career sector, trines the New Moon; the more bold and innovative your ideas are at this time, the more likely they are to pay off later. Venus in Libra trining Jupiter in Aquarius in this New Moon configuration speaks of agreements and collaborations that could work in your favor. Once again, you may be called to assess what’s available to you and what someone else is bringing to the table. Your associations may help you progress faster towards your desired goals at this time.
Venus enters Scorpio on the 10th, where she shines her sensual light on your domestic realm. You may feel an urge to beautify your surroundings in the weeks ahead especially if you work from home.
There could be confusion related to an intimate or business partnership mid-month when the Sun in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces. It may not be as bad as you think although you could feel some anxiety regarding something that’s been left in the open or unresolved. Mars enters Libra on the 14th, where it energizes your communication sector, a transit lasting until the end of October. Mars there could help you dialog and think about a situation at home or with someone close to you. Venus in Scorpio in square with Saturn in Aquarius from the 15th to the 17th may however bring complications at home or with a loved one that could drag on longer than anticipated.
By the time the Full Moon culminates in Pisces on September 20th, highlighting shared resources and intimate partnerships, you can expect clarifications to arrive. Important dialogues may take place that allow you to close a chapter or make peace with something that was left open. Mercury in Libra trines Jupiter in Aquarius on the day of the Full Moon which could help with important negotiations. Your desire to find common ground might be stronger than your desire to win at this time or the give and take of your partnership situations may need to be adjusted.
The Sun enters Libra on September 22nd signaling Libra season and the Fall Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the time when day and night are equal in length. This timing, for you, highlights written and verbal communications and negotiations of all kinds. More extensively, your close friends or your siblings might play an important role in the following weeks. Venus in Scorpio opposite Uranus in Taurus on from the 22nd to the 23rd could bring a surprising twist that forces you to rethink a career or a domestic scenario. Staying flexible, especially with your close partners and friends, may prove paramount in the coming weeks. Finding a balance could be harder as you try to navigate your desires and needs while integrating the needs of others around you.
Mercury stations retrograde in late Libra on the 26th, lasting for three weeks, and then for another two weeks of the retrograde shadow period. This potent Mercury Retrograde affects your communication style, which you could wind up somewhat questioning, and may highlight a process related to the way that you see the world around you, think, and learn. Whatever transpires at the end of September, you might come to realize that you have a lot of people around you ready to lend support which should make it clear who your allies are.
