It’s a wonderful day for precision and detail. Make something just how you like it. Insecurity or insincerity may be revealed. Stay committed to your own integrity and avoid manipulative or pretentious people.
Official partnerships Venus in Libra makes a diffusing or challenging opposition to deep, internal Pluto Rx in career-focused Capricorn. Ambitious Mars simultaneously moves in on an authenticating trine to Pluto. Smooth talking Mercury in Libra’s opposition to wounded Chiron Rx in Aries on Sept 8 forms a Rectangle with mothering relationships Juno and Ceres while Ceres takes the Apex in a revealing Hammer of Thor (fueled by Venus square Pluto.) Meanwhile, the emotional Moon takes the day off in her Dark Phase before tomorrow’s New Moon in Virgo.
Smothering, smooth talk, or pretentious self-sacrifice may reach a contentious point and become exposed, especially in social media or business partnerships.
If you sacrificed your soul for a person, group, or responsibility, it may have driven the passion or inspiration right out of your life or relationship.
To get the love back, you might have to get real with yourself. Forget what might be expected of you. What do you REALLY want?
The answer might dig up hidden insecurities or unresolved trauma of the past, especially as it concerns social structures or social expectations.
Your public image and social relationships are IMPORTANT but not at the expense of your own soul.
Avoiding your own deep internal issues can lead to bad choices, especially related to relationships, work, or finances.
However, facing the pain only hurts until you use it to take your power back.

It’s a relatively quiet week, perfect for getting clear about long range plans, daily routine habits, and supportive alliances.
As the Moon wanes into the dark phase before next week’s New Moon in Virgo, life quiets down. Mercury in Libra is more interested in surface conversation about the weather.
There may be a lack of excitement in conversations. Clearly stating your ideas allows others to geton board, if that’s important to you.
On Thursday, Mars opposes Neptune Rx which may fizzle into a lack of motivation. There may relentless desires to socialize just to feel something. It’s easier to be assertive and put yourself ‘out there.’ However…
Watch for oversacrificing your values in order avoid offending people or to “keep the peace.” Conflict may result later.
By Saturday, it’s clear that practical work needs to be done to advance your career when Mercury trines Saturn Rx. Authenticalliances are also needed to stay inspired.
On Sunday, Venus squares Pluto Rx. Intense pressure in social relationships can result in tension, jealousy, or manipulative strategies to control people which eventually backfire.
To alleviate angst, consider releasing any pressure to prove yourself; look for people who respect the real you. Relax and carry on.
Breaking Free and Ready to Fly
The New Moon in Virgo on September 6 kicks the month off with clear skies and grounded action with plenty of gorgeous inspiring ‘Trine’ aspects.
But the bass drop of Earthy Virgo can catch you off guard if you aren’t ready for the precise, hard work required for satisfyingachievement.
The Cosmos gave us an opportunity to shift into a new direction or life passion back in May at the Taurus New Moon….
If you stayed committed to this life passion, powerful Uranus aspects this month give you a chance to fully cut loose from lifeless, outdated traditions (as well as human opinions) that keep you stuck so you’re fully READY for all systems go by the end of the month (in spite of Mercury retrograde.)
However, if you’re unclear about your direction or easily distracted, uncertainty and tension can cause some to check out, feel lost, or stay trapped in anxiety or other people’s opinions.
Mid Month, Venus finds herself in her ‘Fall’ in Scorpio while Mars crashes in his ‘Detriment’ in Libra. Watch for manipulation in relationships such as smothering or trying to make someone jealous. The Cosmos gave us plenty of clear seeing in August to know who your true alliances are by now.
Mercury and Mars in aspects to Uranus in the second week want change NOW but mental clarity fades as Mercury slows down in his shadow. Clear thinking may be nowhere to be found by mid month when the Sun opposes Neptune. If you’re grounded – as the Cosmos prepared you – you can avoid irresistiblebad choices, especially as it concerns work or relationships.
Outer planets retrograde plus powerful Pluto aspects this month force us to go deep within, seeing things we may not be ready to see, especially as it concerns unhappiness with the way things are or perhaps, bad choices made. Some may resort to escapism at the Pisces Full Moon September 22 to avoid facing ‘the buried stuff.’
The Sun joins Mars in Libra September 22 at the Equinox. If you’ve got a nice balance between social diplomacy and audacious authenticity, you’re on a GOOD TRACK.
The Sun and Mars trine Saturn by the end of the month finally shower us with magnificent energy for solid,feel good achievement – as long as you dealt with ‘your stuff’ earlier in the month and broke free from the prison of other people’s opinions.
