Sagittarius horoscope for September 2022
September is a time of change, with the seasons themselves changing but also a lot of change in the heavens. For now, the outer planets that have shaped the major themes of 2022 are staying put and if anything, are becoming more stable, settled and locked into place. One area of your chart where that is most noticeable is on the job front. It was Mars' departure from your work sector last month that saw the urgency and even the drama drop back while leaving you with a lot of momentum and resources to work with. However, with Uranus in his first full month in retrograde motion here, things have become solid, stable and settled and it will stay that way. This, in turn, is providing a stable footing for career matters, where there is a lot of changes and movement this month.
Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of every year in your career sector, the solar spotlight is always on your career and professional situation, matters and options at this time of year. By the time the Sun returned last month, Mercury had already been here for three weeks and while he left a few days later, this meant you had your head in the game and around your options from the start. Mercury will retrograde back in just a few hours after the Sun leaves on 23rd September, but with a lot of water set to pass under the bridge by then. It is Venus' return from 5th September to 29th September that will allow the planet of money, desire and attraction to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction.
With Pluto in his first full month in retrograde motion in your income sector, this should be a good month across the income, work and career fronts. Another area where change and stability comes together is across the communication, friendship and relationship fronts. In the first full month of Mars' longest visit to your relationship sector in eight decades, he is drawing on Saturn's last full month in retrograde motion in your communication sector. You can count on Saturn to provide communication support in a measured way that gives you the power to move mountains if you have to. Also providing support is Mercury, with the planet of communication in your friendship sector until 23rd September.
Love & RomanceWhile not a lot has changed on the romantic front this month, except that as the planets one by one leave an adventurous part of your chart they are losing their support, enough has been banked to keep making the most of the doors open to the past and second chances. However, right through to her departure on 5th September Venus, the planet of love will be working to bring the spirit of romance and adventure together, at a time when the planets on the romantic front, including lucky Jupiter, are holding the doors open to the past and second chances. With the dwarf planet Ceres staying on until 29th September, when the Moon moves through your romantic sector from 11th September to 13th September, a friendly aspect to all three planets in your romantic sector will once again bring a mix of romance, adventure and nostalgia together.
Meanwhile, the big changes are on the relationship front, where there should be little if any planetary activity at this time of year. That changed when Mars not only returned for his first visit to your relationship sector in two years late last month but to begin his longest visit in eight decades. Normally Mars will move through in six weeks, working as he goes to fire and spice things up as he encourages you to fight for what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. Fortunately, with no planetary activity in Sagittarius until later in the year for him to clash with, this was never going to be challenging. However, instead of moving through in six weeks, Mars is already slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn later next month that will keep him here until March 2023.
What makes this significant is that this comes just as Saturn has moved into his final seven months in your communication sector, with the two working as a team until they both leave next March. Adding to the support and especially on the communication front was Mercury, the planet of communication's return to your friendship sector just days after Mars' return to your relationship sector. Once part of this team Mercury will be reluctant to leave, with a retrograde turn on 10th September adding to the support when it comes to giving the past and unsaid words a voice. Meanwhile, with all three planets in your romantic sector still in their early months in retrograde motion, the doors remain open to the past and second chances on the romantic front.
Business & CareerMars' departure from your work sector on 20th August ended a seven week visit that has created a lot of momentum and planted a lot of seeds but ended what could have been some of the busiest weeks of the year. It was Uranus' retrograde turn just days later that put the brakes on, giving you a chance to pull back. This is Uranus' first full month in retrograde motion and remaining in retrograde motion for the rest of the year, this is a chance to retrace your steps and after the warrior planet of the cosmos has moved through, slowly pick through the spoils of war. Since his return in 2018 Uranus has always spent the final months of each year in retrograde motion, making this part of the normal pattern.
What is not the norm is to have had Mars move through, making a chance to pull back a lot more important while giving you a lot more to explore. Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of September in your career sector, as Uranus pulls back and puts work and job matters into review mode new doors are opening on the career front for the first time each year. Since Uranus' return in 2018 and until he leaves in 2026, new doors will open on the career front just as they are opening to the past on the job front, with the two always going hand in hand. Also always going hand in hand is having Pluto in retrograde motion in your income sector, where until turning direct early next month he is holding the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped income potential.
When the Sun returned to your career sector last month it was to find that Mercury had already been here for three weeks, with your head in the game and ideas on the table from the start. Mercury left a few days later but will retrograde back in on 23rd September, just hours after the Sun leaves on the same day. Meanwhile, with Venus here from 5th September to 29th September and the dwarf planet returning to begin her first deep dive into your professional needs and priorities in four years just a few hours later, there will be continuous planetary activity across the income, work and career fronts all month. There will also be a lot of cooperation between the planets on all three fronts.
MoneyWhen Venus left your financial sector early last month, she wrapped up all planetary activity on that side of the financial fence for the year. Venus may have been the last planet to move through and as the planet of money the right planet to tie up loose ends, it was after the Sun, Mercury and even the dwarf planet Ceres had moved through. The month that the Sun had the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters and the smart head for money Mercury left you with gave Venus something to build on from just as Ceres had wrapped up her first deep dive into your financial needs and priorities in four years. By the time Venus left you knew everything you needed to keep money matters on track.
However, this has seen the focus shift back to the income side of the financial fence where Pluto, in his last full month in retrograde motion in your income sector is now the only planet in either of your two money houses. Every planet that moved through your financial sector over recent months clashed with Pluto before leaving, something that has ended the competition and the potential for financial tension while leaving you with a better understanding of money coming in and money going out. This month the focus is back on income matters and it helps that Pluto is having a very good month thanks to the planetary activity on the job and career fronts.
Pluto had already got a boost from the seven weeks that Mars has recently spent in your work sector, but his departure last month has dialled back the urgency while Uranus' retrograde turn has shifted the focus onto the past and untapped job potential just as Pluto is doing the same on the income front. However, it is having the Sun in your work sector until 23rd September, Mercury retrograding back in just hours later and Venus, the planet of money here from 5th September to 29th September that is tying everything together. While new doors are opening on the job front when Mercury retrogrades back in, for the last seven days of the month the doors will be open to the past, second chances and untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts.
