Today's Horoscope This week This month
Leo horoscope for September 2022
While your birthday month, as is always the case ended last month, the job of deciding what you want for this new solar year is still underway and it might not be until the end of the month that you fully understand your needs and priorities for the coming year. Until she leaves Leo on 5th September, Venus is still giving your heart a voice and a say in what you want from the coming year. Yet even after Venus leaves you might not be ready to commit to anything specific, with the dwarf planet Ceres staying on and not ending her first deep dive into your needs and priorities in four years until 29th September. This isn't slowing things down but gives you the freedom to keep your options open.
Meanwhile, the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of September in your income sector, shining the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options. The Sun starts the month on his own but by the time he returned last month Mercury had already been here for three weeks, leaving days later but not before leaving you with the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game and to think on your feet. The Sun will be joined by Venus on 5th September, with the planet of money returning to make these some of the most lucrative weeks of any year. Venus will stay on when the Sun leaves on 23rd September, so will be here when Mercury retrogrades back in for a double dip visit less than 12 hours later.
With Venus not leaving your income sector until 28th September and Mercury here for the rest of the month, there will not only be continuous planetary activity all month but with a lot of interaction with the planets on the job and career fronts. Meanwhile, Mercury will start the month in your communication sector, where as the planet of communication he feels most at home. Mercury will also work closely with Saturn, in retrograde motion in your communication sector and Mars, in his first full month in your friendship sector, as will the Sun when he returns on 23rd September. It is here that this month's New Moon will fall on 26th September.
Love & RomanceIt is during Venus, the planet of love's final days in Leo that you are most likely to get to the heart of your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year. Venus will only spend 24 days in Leo this year, all of them focused on updating your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year. What makes Venus' final days the most significant is a clash with Saturn in your relationship sector and the Moon's timely visit to your romantic sector. As you move into the new month that clash is behind you but only just. Having put a balance between your personal and relationship needs to the test, this was a chance to get to the heart of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
As you move into the new month this is something that you are still processing but with no planetary activity in your romantic sector, you still haven't got to the heart of what you want from love, but this is where the Moon's well timed visit to your romantic sector comes in. The Moon will move through from 3rd February to 5th February, leaving just two hours before Venus leaves on the same day. The Moon will align with Venus before leaving, with these romantically charged lunar vibes able to get to the heart of the planet of love's influence and the voice this is giving your heart, right at the 11th hour. It helps that the Moon will not only return over the weekend but the first weekend of the new month and Venus' last in Leo.
Meanwhile, it was Mercury's return to your communication sector just days after Venus and Mercury clashed that has already given the planet of communication something to work with. This allows you to move into the new month with a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you and with the communication lines open. Instead of racing through, a retrograde turn on 10th September will keep him here until retrograding back out less than 12 hours after the Sun returns on 23rd September to take his place. With Saturn staying on in your relationship sector and the communication support only increasing but with no planetary activity in your romantic sector, the romantically charged start to the month is something that needs to be captured and nurtured.
Business & CareerWhile Mars' departure from your career sector last month has dialled back the urgency and especially as Uranus turned retrograde here just days later, this will still be a good month and that includes across the income, work and career fronts. After seven weeks Mars has created more than enough momentum but as these are likely to have been a busy seven weeks, there is finally a chance to pull back. Especially as Mars' first visit in two years was in addition to the months of planetary activity as the Sun, Mercury and Venus moved through before that. Uranus' first full month in retrograde motion here is also Pluto's last in retrograde motion in your work sector, with the two working as a team.
With the Sun always spending the first three weeks of September in your income sector and while he will leave on 23rd September, with Venus here from 5th September to 29th September and Mercury having retrograded back in by then, this creates a month where there will be an ongoing link between new income and untapped professional and job potential. This will also create a situation where when Mercury retrogrades back into your income sector on 23rd September, the same day the Sun leaves, this will put planets in retrograde motion and the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts.
Meanwhile, it is the Moon's return to your work and career sectors this month that will not only bring a chance to check in there but across the income, work and career fronts, as it connects with planets on all three fronts. You will experience this first when the Moon returns to your work sector from 5th September to 7th September. As well as giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters, this first visit since Uranus' retrograde turn will also see the Moon form a friendly aspect to Pluto in your work sector and to the Sun and Venus in your income sector as it passes through. It will do the same when it moves through your career sector from 13th September to 16th September, this time aligning with Pluto while forming a friendly aspect to the Sun, Venus and Uranus, making these some of the best days of the month across the income, work and career fronts.
MoneyBecause the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of September in your income sector, the solar spotlight is always on your income situation, matters and options at this time of year. This year you have both a head start and a lot more professional momentum to draw on than is normally the case. The head start came from the three weeks that Mercury had already spent in your income sector before the Sun returned last month, giving you a sharp nose for money and your head already in the game from the start. While Mercury left just a few days later, he will retrograde back in for a double dip visit just hours after the Sun leaves on 23rd September. Venus' return on 5th September will ensure there is continuity and with Mercury, back by the time, she leaves on 29th September, continuous planetary activity all month.
As the planet of money, it is Venus' return that can make these the most lucrative weeks of any year, due to her ability to boost your confidence and a belief in what you deserve while bringing the laws of attraction into play. With Venus here from 5th September to 29th September she will influence the majority of the month. While the Sun, Mercury and Venus move through your income sector at this time every year and since his return in 2008 this has put them at a friendly aspect to Pluto in your work sector, you have had additional resources this time. While Pluto is always in retrograde motion at this time each year, it was while Mercury was still in your income sector that Mars wrapped up a seven week visit to your career sector.
Mars has left and Uranus is now in his first full month in retrograde motion in your work sector but this has created a lot of untapped professional and income potential that the money gods can now exploit. At the same time, this will create some competition for Neptune and the asteroid Juno, on the other side of the financial fence in your financial sector. The most significant clash between income and money matters will come when the Moon not only moves through your financial sector from 9th September to 12th September but the Full Moon this will create on 10th September. This will see the Moon clash with the Sun in your income sector, energising both sides of the financial fence.
