Fiery Leo is the sign of the heart, airy Libra is the sign of partnership, and both stimulate us with fresh energy this month. This action starts on September 6, when love planet Venus strides into Leo to encourage bold expressions of emotion and dramatic ways of having fun. This transit is about taking risks that can turn up the heat within a current alliance or add some excitement in the search for a new one.
Don't bother with halfway measures when Venus occupies regal and romantic Leo. Step out of the shadows of shyness and come on strong, even to the point of embarrassment, to raise your profile and show that you're going for the win in the game of love.
On September 16, cerebral Mercury glides into gracious Libra, where sweet conversations open the way to new connections. The road to romance, though, is not without its bumpy passages as Mercury makes hard aspects to volatile Uranus and manipulative Pluto on September 20. These trigger the explosive force of the ongoing squares between these two transformational outer planets, which can radically alter the course of relationships.
The Sun follows suit on September 22, as it enters Libra to increase the desire to partner up. Yet like Mercury, the Sun runs into an opposition to Uranus and square to Pluto on September 29 that can rock the world. Power struggles and restlessness may shake couples, but these potent transits can also blow away obstacles and attract exciting new people and events. The Aries Full Moon on September 29 steps right into this transformational zone, where breakthroughs and breakdowns can happen in an instant.
