September is a rewarding period for those born under what is termed a fire sign, just the same as you. The planets coalesce into one of those rare cosmic configurations, that proves to be comfortable for the most part, without you needing to make a great deal of effort in order to ensure positive results. Although to some degree it goes against the grain, involving others in your affairs proves beneficial, especially on a partnership level either in your private life or at work. There may even be a romantic frisson in the air, while those who are parenting and raising a family, enjoy a taste of what this experience should be about.

September’s stellium of planets in Virgo is welcome news. The past year or so has been extremely busy, with your commitments and responsibilities taking up a great deal of time, while other people could have been more supportive. Although you see the positives for your financial position, domestic circumstances and sense of security in particular; your stamina won’t hold out forever if you carry on neglecting to relax and to enjoy yourself occasionally. This doesn’t necessarily mean dancing nightly on the tabletops. But perhaps you could highlight a range of leisure pursuits: getting fit or indulging your hobbies and whatever?

Following on from the latter part of August, September’s skies look kinder than they have for a while. This applies across the board: so after all the trials and tribulations that you’ve faced beforehand, you at least receive some inkling that the hardship and sacrifice are going to get you somewhere. This sense of happiness and fulfilment is not a solitary experience either. The unusual selection of people you now call your friends, the local community of which you increasingly feel a part and those who have stuck by you through thick and thin, all help you to feel better about yourself and more confident where you are going…

As September gets into its stride, your financial interests become less of a concern. Mercury engages a forward gear and visits three signs this month, an unusual proposition when one of two is more usual. This heralds a sense that at last there is some progress in your material affairs. While not everything will have worked out as you’d hoped, there is an growing feeling of looking towards the future and of moving onwards from this point. Those in a position to improve their income are fortunate, especially if you are working in a loose partnership arrangement or developing a creative idea, possibly involving your family…

It is hard to follow the stellar fireworks of last month. The Great American Eclipse was probably witnessed by more folk than any cosmic event in history. Whatever happens is bound to seem a little anticlimactic, but you can’t continue on such a high note constantly, without the nature of such occurrences becoming undermined. Throughout much of September you are challenged, to put the insights that August offered you, in to practice. If you still need to clarify your position, you have the chance to formulate a precise strategy. You could start by asking yourself what truly counts and whether it comes easier in partnership?

august 23 - september 22
Three planets in your sign throughout this month, peak at four over a few days around the new moon and put your constellation, firmly at centre stage. Your feelings about this prove mixed, since while on the one hand you are delighted your anxieties are finally being addressed, on the other playing such a pivotal role does not sit comfortably. Ordinarily, as one of the zodiac’s more retiring members, you would only step into the spotlight after a great deal of persuasion. Maybe this is one of the issues you ought to consider? Inwardly feeling you are worth the time and energy, while outwardly cringing at the first hint of attention…

Next month, Jupiter leaves your sign. This makes the intervening period your opportunity to capitalise on the associations of this planet. These include travel, education, legal matters, success, fulfilment and growth. So if you were thinking about going to college, this is an auspicious juncture. If there are thorny legal issues you need to address, you’ll find the cosmos proves supportive. Should you be thinking about a holiday, seize your moment now. Perilous manoeuvres, stand a better chance of success sooner rather than later. The one exception is where money matters are concerned; you’re smarter to wait a few weeks.

october 23 - november 21
This is a gentler month than a number of late; over the past couple of years there have been so many factors that have tried your patience and tested your resolve. This pleasant and surprising trend continues from late August, although you may not recognise or trust at first what seems an exception to the rule. Normal service resumes during the last ten days of this month and first ten of October, but thereafter Jupiter’s arrival in your sign sees the commencement of a welcome new cycle lasting through until November 2018. Take this as the heads-up, to ready and organise yourself. Some dreams still come true.

november 22 - december 21
Saturn in your sign has dished out plenty of punishment. As it bows out of your region of the sky towards the end of this year and goes on to teach somebody else a lasting lesson instead, it is hard to appreciate there can be any positives arising from its stay. In some ways, this is simply due to the huge dichotomy between this planet and your own nature. They are essentially opposite principles and getting them to work together is not a straightforward proposition. But where extravagance has featured you are wise to cut back. Where you’ve favoured expediency over firm foundations, you have a chance to make amends…

december 22 - january 19
A number of challenges you’ve faced since the beginning of this decade, have arisen out of the blue. Several have been unsettling, affecting your domestic circumstances or home life in particular and by the looks of it, with some ground left to cover yet. The harder you have fought to maintain a semblance of stability, the more the cosmos has needed to convince you of its illusory nature and the increasingly extreme tactics you have faced. In retrospect, you can appreciate that while you didn’t enjoy the process, much of it has had beneficial consequences. Keep this thought and attitude, at the forefront of your mind…

A stellium of planets in a complicated sector of your horoscope makes for a month to remember. Although ruled by Uranus and thus naturally associated with revolution, change and all that is new, as an individual you are surprisingly fixed in essence and find it difficult to alter your trajectory, especially when you are purposely swimming against the tide. You’ll persist against all odds then suddenly one day, completely change your mind. People are stunned by this turn of events, while you find it hard to credit they didn’t know all along. Assuming life is not a rehearsal; if you don’t give it your best shot, what is the point then?

february 19 - march 19
Up to four planets congregate in your opposite sign. If you consider your constellation to represent you, then the area directly across the sky pertains to others, particularly as part of a one-to-one association. While a partnership or marriage is an obvious manifestation, so too is the dynamic between you and your rivals, competitors at work, adversaries and even enemies. It seems the fundamental basis on which you relate is called up for review and it’s an extremely opportune juncture to make changes. You can dodge the issue and throw yourself into your work for example, but that only safeguards part of a happy future.
