This is your month to advance your interests with the Sun in your skillful sign until September 22. Fresh energy should give you a sense of initiative. Whether you're taking on new work challenges or pursuing a totally different career path, it's important to keep pushing ahead. Self-improvement is a key to increasing your confidence and to ensure your success.
Mental Mercury, your ruling planet, is also in Virgo to sharpen your mind and make you a more effective communicator. Sticking to critical issues instead of overwhelming yourself or others with too much information helps you get the most out of this clever transit. Still, the messenger planet opposes drifty Neptune on September 1, which can confuse conversations with misunderstanding or inaccuracy. Double-check data when necessary.
Your ability to tease out vital information and present it well is strong on September 4-5, when Mercury aligns favorably with potent Pluto and assertive Mars. Mercury's conjunction with the Sun in your sign on the 10th can provide a precise picture of where you're at. If you are not thrilled with your status, don't get down on yourself, but come up with constructive ways to alter your direction.
You get a boost in doing that with the energizing New Moon in Virgo on September 15. This annual event in your sign offers a fresh start, making this an excellent time to initiate projects or to make new connections. Just be cautious around September 20, when a casual word can have an explosive effect. Weigh your ideas thoughtfully before exposing them to others.
