The Sun brings attention to your 10th house this month. The 10th house rules your work and career. This transit could bring hard-won recognition. It could also bring scrutiny from yourself as you look at your work and see if it matches what you really want to do. In the case where you are not really excited about your field of work or workplace, you may be very motivated to make some strides towards changing that.
Employment changes or the process of considering a change or looking into options are all more likely at this time. Be open to the possibility that although stress and uncertainty may be brought by these changes, there could be opportunities to create more of the life you have envisioned for yourself that you were too hesitant to jump into without the intense provocation that could come now.
The Suns placement in this sector could bring some insights into your true calling and luck in finding a more perfect match.
New opportunities or ones from the past through ideas, clients, contacts, or anything else could help in a big way. This is a great time start (or continue) to put together your plan for changing directions. Taking steps in the backdrop, experimenting with a new path, and researching/gathering information are well-supported at this time. Making forward movement could also be well-indicated. Follow the flow and if things start to get frustrating, it may be your cue to pull in a bit until flow and certainty return.
If you already love your work you may find you are extra-excited now about it and could be entering a Renaissance Period with your work. Past labors can show up now in major ways Opportunities, projects, or contacts from the past can resurface with new life. Opportunities can come in suddenly or things planned in the past could work out in a wonderful way now.
Prepare to be busy and have a focus on business, getting organized, taking care of practical necessities in the forefront.
The area of the chart that is accentuated now also rules your reputation out in the world. Your name and work might become greater known during this transit 🙂
For those who are retired or for whom ‘work/career’ isn’t relevant, the 10th house focus may cause you to be asking for or finding insights about your higher purpose. Contemplation about a plan that would put you on a path where you feel ‘on track’ is great use of the potentials of this month and education and looking into options are great ways to use the the energies so there is plenty of room to explore, wonder, and dream, as well as looking deep into things relevant to your higher work in the world all month and beyond through the year. Even if you can’t see exactly where you are going, taking obvious steps that present themselves now can feel very fulfilling and lead you on a powerful path of positive change. It is an amazing time to ‘try things on’ and experiment. Something exciting to say YES to could come up that brings you great joy.
Since this house also rules father energy, you could find yourself focusing on your dad (or other father figure), or some situation of note may come up involving him. Maybe is going through something and he needs help or he could be assisting you in some way. It might be a good time to check in with him or work on your relationship in some way.

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.

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.
