The Sun brings warmth and focus to your 6th house this month bringing your attention to order and organization.
Streamlining your schedule and improving time management are great areas of focus at this time. Working smarter instead of working harder will carry better outcomes now and strategizing ways to do this can be very fruitful at this time.
Notable occurrences at the office could come up and for both those who are self-employed and those in an office or other employment setting. Issues or opportunities with some link to the past are more likely now.
Employment may be a hot topic at this time. If changes or uncertainty come to your work place, hold open the idea that any changes that come now, even if they feel unwelcome, could place you on a path for greater happiness and fulfillment in the longer term. Your resourcefulness has a chance to soar tremendously at this time and will be amplified the more you focus on it.
Clearing clutter and bringing coherence to your outer and inner realms will be time well-supported at this time. Something fun you can do is play my “Ten Things” game. I created this to help me clear clutter. Every day for a certain amount of time I committed to in advance (1 week, 1 month, etc.) I would make the agreement with myself that I would just have to deal with 10 things that were sitting around out of place. What I found (as you may find) that once I got started (which seems to be the hardest part), I would go well past dealing with only 10 things as momentum was built from the minimum commitment. This is a great exercise when you feel unmotivated, overwhelmed, or are crazy busy 🙂
Speaking of ‘exercise’, the Sun is accentuating your house of exercise and other health regimens this month, too (also 6th house affairs). This energy will likely highlight exercise regimens, diets, practitioners, treatments, routines, etc.
New health issues or ones from the past may resurface now or become more obvious to give attention to. You may make some important health discoveries or find solutions at any time this month. This is a time when diagnostics and other things to get down into the details of your health, healing, and exercise and diet regimen come into the forefront. Stress management may come into the forefront as a necessity or as a preventative measure. You may be drawn to make healthy lifestyle changes now.
The 6th house also rules pets and some other animals so you might find yourself focused in that area of life. A pet may need some attention at this time or you may have more time or interest in focusing attention to your furry or feathered ones. This could be a great time to find your forever friend, just make sure that the animal you choose is a perfect match for your energy level, mobility, time, and budget as motivation and energy levels may start to wane from Mars being in retrograde.
Virgo planets invite a “big clean up” in every area of life. Evaluating and shifting the factors in your immediate environment that could be negatively affecting you can bring profound transformation.
Six earth trines can bring massive material manifestation this month! Sweet outcomes from things that were challenges in the past are more likely now.
Mars officially shifts into retrograde September 9 – November 14 bringing a slow down of ambitions and for some, downright laziness. Using your ingenuity to figure out ways to do get responsibilities managed could be especially rewarding now. A major thing to now about this transit is to not push anything that isn’t naturally flowing and to avoid attacking or using force towards someone or something as it is more likely to boomerang back to you.
Mars retrograde is an amazing time for rest, vacations, stay-cations and play-cations. You will likely be glad if you choose avoid unnecessary, uninteresting, high-stress projects or ones that have demanding deadlines. Casual and flexible study or other projects are well-indicated now – basically anything that is fun for you and allows you step away from it as you are drawn. To learn more about how to roll with the natural rhythms of Mars retro, you can see my Mars retro blog here and my Mars retro video here.
As in August, September has a notable amount of awkward angles that may cast doubt and discomfort. These aspects are offering and invitation to see things a different way and could turn out to be blessings.
Jupiter, the bringer of luck, benevolence, optimism, and expansion turns direct this month after being retrograde since May. Any areas of life that may have stalled out then could have notable life breathed back into them.
September is a little bubble of more potential calm before the storm of October, November and December when the eclipses return and the final conclusions to the outer planet clashes that have radically changed our world will come to pass.
If your birthday is late in the sign (or if you are reading for your rising sign and have a late degree) this report will start to be relevant for you towards the end of the month, for earlier in the month you many find that the Taurus Horoscope is more relevant for you.
