After a tumultuous eclipse month when, at times, it seemed the world had gone mad, September promises a more peaceful phase. Of course, there’s no promise of total positivity but, overall, we can expect life to settle down in the coming weeks.
Notably, Mercury will end its retrograde on 5 September. This reverse cycle has been a time for reflection, so its end will mean people should be back in business, getting on with things they may have been putting off, and moving forwards. The direction should become clearer as the month unfolds.
When it comes to romance and having fun with friends, 15 September looks very good universally; it also looks positive financially. Then, at the end of the month, there will be a big chance for transformation. Take advantage of this – you should find things easier and less of a struggle than they have been for years, when it comes to changing your life.
24 Aug to 23 Sep
You are 'in focus' this month, as the Sun goes through Virgo, the New Moon takes place in your sign and the Full Moon triggers your Love Zone. Use this time to consider what you want from your friendships and relationships – then make it happen. You have the celestial forces supporting you. You should feel extra loved this month, so open your heart to it. Financially, there could be a positive turnaround that will take you by surprise.
Power date: 10 September – a day to ask for what you want!
24 Sep to 23 Oct
The period of dealing with slightly unhinged, unpredictable relationships is slowly but surely coming to an end. If you have learned to allow people to 'do their thing' while you patiently wait for them to come back to normal, you have learned the lessons that the years since 2011 have been trying to teach you. A live-and-let-live attitude will serve you well. This month is also a great time to rework your daily routines for the good of your health, and to go deeper into your spiritual life.
Power date: 12 September – a great day to make any kind of deal or agreement.
24 Oct to 22 Nov
When you wake up on 20 September, make a wish – in fact, make 10! The New Moon will be taking place in your Wishing Zone. It's the optimum time of the year to let the Universe know your dreams. The month also presents a high probability of big changes in your daily life – and happily, whatever changes take place, they should be very much in your favour. Financially, you look to be moving on to a more even keel.
Power date: 30 September – if you’re in love, it could be a dreamy day.
23 Nov to 21 Dec
Positive changes are forecast for you, romantically and platonically, this month, so use your famous charm and sense of humour to win people over. If you're working on a creative project, there is potential for great advances there, too. And expect any concerns to do with a child (your own or someone else's) to ease. All in all, it seems Sagittarians who've been doing their best these past few years are finally getting their rewards!
Power date: September 28 – for some, it will feel like life is starting all over again!
22 Dec to 20 Jan
A shake-up is forecast in your home or work life, but don't be alarmed! With Jupiter involved, chances are that whatever unfolds for you in the coming weeks will actually be quite exciting. In your personal life, if you've wanted to do things differently, that can happen now. Be the change you want to see. Overseas travel and studying are also very well starred for you now, so follow your heart and open your mind to new adventures.
Power date: 22 September – you have strong communication skills today.
21 Jan to 19 Feb
The late, great US philosopher Dr Wayne Dyer said ‘When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.’ If you look at someone through the eyes of love, you will see their actions very differently than if you're looking at them through the eyes of annoyance. This is your challenge for September. Change the way you look at something or someone and you will change your life for the better. Also, travel is really well starred for you this month, if you can get away.
Power date: 28 September – turn and face the direction you want to go in!
20 Feb to 20 Mar
With three planets stacked in your Love Zone, and the New Moon taking place in there as well, it's a very big month for you and your most important relationships. After a troubled period, who do you want to make things right with? This is the month to extend the hand of love. If you’re happily in love, expect things to get even better. Single and looking? Good things can happen online in September. Perhaps dare to try digital dating – it’s never too late! Also this month, let go of something from your life that no longer serves you.
Power date: 20 September – the New Moon is in your Love Zone, so use it!
21 Mar to 20 Apr
This month, you are in the right place at the right time for a few massive life changes. Don't worry, they are all likely to be very positive, since the planets involved include Jupiter, the fortunate planet. So think about how you want your life and, more specifically, your relationships, to be. Release anyone or anything that you need to. Allow your life to evolve. Understand that change is your mission right now. It's true to say that, as of this month, the world is your oyster!
Power date: 1 September – you should be feeling fired up and ready for action!
21 Apr to 21 May
You have a rare chance to shake things up this month. If you know you could be healthier, for example, the heavens support you in making the necessary adjustments needed to your diet, exercise regime and sleeping habits. Be honest with yourself about where you have been going wrong and visualise yourself living the kind of life you dream of. Perhaps it’s one where you spend more time outside, breathing fresh air. When it comes to friendships, if you feel you need to let one go, now is the time to do it.
Power date: 15 September – could be your lucky, romantic day.
22 May to 22 Jun
If your relationships have been a bit tiresome lately, there is light at the end of the tunnel this month. Even if you and your partner have been annoying each other a lot these past few months, that can change now, if you're willing to put a bit of effort into it. Someone needs to reignite the romance, so it might as well be you! Confusion about your home or a family member should ease up now, too.
Power date: 5 September – your planet Mercury ends its retrograde and life starts to make more sense.
23 Jun to 23 Jul
You're in a great position this month, as the fortuitous Jupiter/Uranus alignment boosts your Home Zone and your Work Zone. So, whether you work or not, it looks as though there are going to be some very positive developments. You’ll also benefit from the end of Mercury’s retrograde, as the dust settles and you feel less confused by life. There could be good news for a family member, as well.
Power date: 28 September – time to move forwards with one important relationship.
24 Jul to 23 Aug
If you want to change your life, then you first need to change the way you are thinking. As you recover from the madness that your sign experienced in July and August, you may feel that something has to be done differently. Something new must start or a new direction must be taken. It’s all possible but you have to take action. Start by deciding what you want from the next 19 years. Remember that thinking positively can move mountains.
Power date: 8 September – you are powerful today.
