This month is bustling with things to do, and you must manage your time carefully so you don't become overwhelmed or exhausted. But don't sit on the sidelines; critically analyze your current situation, set priorities, eliminate unnecessary activities, and get busy taking care of what's essential.
Brainy Mercury and the bright Sun are activating your 3rd House of Immediate Environment, scattering your energy with a million minor tasks. The industrious Virgo New Moon on September 5 falls in your busy 3rd House, shifting your drive into high gear so you can meet all your obligations.
Nevertheless, hard work doesn't seem to accomplish much since pushy Mars squares unresponsive Saturn on September 9, while Mercury's entry into ambiguous Libra could add to your indecisiveness. You may be spinning your wheels on September 11 when physical Mars and mental Mercury form unsettling quincunxes with mysterious Pluto and meandering Neptune, but Venus swims into the powerful waters of Scorpio to help you process your emotions.
Brace yourself for unforeseen changes at work, which could cause concern on the home front. Taking radical action on September 14 -- when active Mars trines ingenious Uranus in your 10th House of Career -- can alleviate the tension. The visionary Pisces Full Moon on September 19 illuminates your 9th House of Big Ideas, restoring your confidence and possibly provoking you to say more than you intend.
If you stretch the truth, an unforgiving Saturn-Pluto sextile on September 21 could be a wake-up call that requires you to be more realistic. However, if you can focus on one task at a time, this aspect can also increase your productivity. A long-lasting Jupiter-Neptune alignment on September 28 reminds you that success can be yours if your aspirations are supported by a workable strategy.
Keep in Mind this Month
Don't try to do everything at once. You can move your life forward on a few well-chosen fronts if you're willing to limit extraneous activities.
Key Dates for Cancer
September 1: Charge your Batteries
You may be feeling your oats as the radiant Sun's power is reinforced by its regenerative trine to Pluto. But rather than putting your physical resources to work, the methodical Virgo Sun tells you to save your strength. Fortunately, potent Pluto in your 7th House of Companions means that collaborating with others can fuel your passion to work even harder. Be smart -- by using your brains and not your brawn today, you can conserve the energy you will need tomorrow.
SUPER NOVA DAYS
September 18-22: Make it Work
A sobering Venus-Saturn conjunction on September 18 raises real concerns about a relationship, yet the poetic Pisces Full Moon on September 19 entices you to escape into your fantasies. Fortunately, you're able to overcome difficult odds as Venus and Saturn form supportive sextiles with powerful Pluto in your 7th House of Partners on September 18 and 21, respectively. Pay careful attention to the needs of others and don't make assumptions, because a Mercury-Jupiter square on September 19 urges you to accept sloppy thinking and messy shortcuts. The Sun's move into fair-minded Libra on September 22 marks the Autumn Equinox, altering your perspective by enabling you to see things from an entirely different point of view.
