The choices you make this month can have a lasting impact on your career because the Sun is in your sign and your 1st House of Identity until September 22. How you see yourself makes a critical difference in the future of your professional life. It's essential to recognize what you have already learned and accomplished. Even if you're aware of flaws in your game and recognize that there is so much more to be done, beginning with what's right will make it easier to correct what's wrong.
Your cerebral ruling planet Mercury is also in Virgo until September 9, sharpening your mind and your tongue. Being sensitive to others helps you to adjust your comments so they don't irritate people. Getting stuck in details that don't really matter could make it harder for you to think strategically and see the big picture. If you're frustrated, step back and take a longer-term view to put your thinking into perspective.
Mercury shifts into sociable Libra and your 2nd House of Self-Worth on September 9 and the Sun will make the same move on September 22. These transits indicate that you can increase your income by aligning with partners or associates. Sometimes relationships aren't easy, but the chances of making more money grow when you have someone who complements your skills.
Venus, the planet of partnership, enters savvy Scorpio and your 3rd House of Here and Now on September 10. This deepens your understanding of others' talents and reminds you that teaming up for a specific project doesn't commit you to a lifelong alliance.
