Well, it’s a good thing Aquarius typically tends to like the life of the mind, because the planets have certainly been delivering quite a bit of that over the last couple of years. September is not only no exception to that rule, but actually represents an increase in the trend. In September, the sun and Mercury travel through Virgo. Virgo is a mentally-oriented sign and a very particular, picky sign at that. In your solar chart, it represents your 8th house.
The 8th house represents, among other things, self-mastery and the acquisition of insight and knowledge into subjects that would otherwise be obscure. What this means in general is that one of the life tasks for any Aquarian is to use the mind, by focusing on particulars and tangible realities, to gain self-mastery and higher levels of knowledge into areas that aren’t necessarily obvious or easy to comprehend.
Meanwhile, Saturn has been in your solar 9th house for a couple of years. Saturn in the 9th house is equally mentally-oriented and knowledge-seeking, and Saturn is also a very particular planet, one that focuses on tangible realities. This is Saturn’s last month in this part of your chart and I suppose you could say he’s going out with a bang, gathering with the sun and Mercury in Libra to kiss himself goodbye. And I haven’t even mentioned your ruler Uranus in your solar third house, which concentrates on rational thinking and the use of language in your everyday life.
Bottom-line: September is a thinkaholic month, heavy on the details, particulars, tangibles, words, and self-discipline. Of course, you have to make this work for you in your own unique Aquarian way, whatever that might be. You might want to turn all this thinking toward your financial situation, which Virgo is interested in and so is Neptune in Pisces. Goodness knows your solar chart wants to address any issues you have in that arena.
You might employ your mental talents on the job, especially during the first week of the month, while you have good vibes there. You could also take a stab at learning something for fun, as Jupiter in Gemini in your house of recreation greatly enjoys things like taking classes in a foreign language or exploring some exotic new topic.
You could also perhaps benefit from thinking deeply about your past, as patterns from the past seem to be having a great effect on your daily life right now. And if you have some sort of a writing or speaking project (or some other Saturn-y knowledge or educational task) in process, give it your all to get it wrapped up by the end of month.
Your next Saturn cycle, which begins in October, will be more about goals, objectives, attainments, job and career, and plain old hard work. You’ll see the beginnings of that this month, as Mars introduces you to the Scorpio career vibe. One good thing is that when Saturn does leave Libra, travel may become a bit easier.
Last and definitely not least, Venus spends the last 3 weeks of the month in Leo. Other people are like a mirror to you now.
