Leo Horoscope: September 2013
Managing your finances with greater care should pay off handsomely this month. This focus on material resources is triggered by the Sun's presence in the practical earth sign of Virgo and your 2nd House of Possessions until September 22. Reduce frivolous expenses to channel more time and money into cultivating skills that contribute to your future income.
The conscientious Virgo New Moon on September 5 is powered by a trine to unrelenting Pluto in your 6th House of Employment to help you eliminate distractions and increase your efficiency. A supportive sextile from Jupiter in your 12th House of Imagination provides the inspiration you need to raise your hopes and work harder to reach your dreams.
Interactive Mercury glides into diplomatic Libra and your 3rd House of Communication on September 9, enhancing your ability to listen with an open mind and express your ideas pleasantly.
Expect emotional issues to intensify when Venus dives deeply into Scorpio and your 4th House of Personal History on September 11. You may experience jealousy and power struggles when Venus joins controlling Saturn in your private 4th house on September 18. Fear of rejection might inhibit you from addressing these matters until September 19, when the sympathetic Pisces Full Moon floods your 8th House of Deep Sharing.
This flow of unrestrained emotions washes away mistrust, giving rise to compassion and allowing you to grow closer with an influential ally. Saturn's sextile with Pluto on September 21 is excellent for channeling passion into your work, and the Sun's entry into artistic Libra and your 3rd House of Information on September 22, the Autumn Equinox, favors creative thinking.
Keep in Mind this Month
Focus on learning valuable new skills rather than merely showing off talents you already have. Additional training maximizes your strengths and creates noticeable improvement where you're weakest.
