Know yourself to know who’s right for your
Set your purpose for the rest of the year
Long haul commitments bring big results
Despite the fact that September’s planetary movements are concentrated on your 10th/11th/12th houses, there’s a lot going on in your partnership sector, Sag.
Let’s talk about those ‘flighty Sag’ labels you get stuck with. The image – false usually, of you are a freewheelin’ commitment phobe always looking to the horizon for the next best thing. From FOMO to fear of having your wings clipped (and yes, that centaur should also be a Pegasus too!), Sag suffers bad press when it comes to long haul love. Needlessly, I might add.
What you are seeking is someone who shares your worldview – no matter what this is. And who on some level, is a fellow free spirit. That ‘Don’t fence me in’ attitude only emerges when this is absent. Knowing ourselves first and foremost, is our key to finding long-term, lasting love as we know exactly the kind of person we need. So, this month if Game of Hearts is what you want to play for keeps, start by truly knowing and accepting who you are so you recognise ‘The One’ when they appear.
Let the Right One In
Ceres is all about deals, compromises and win/win scenarios. In your 7th this points to a brand new deal or dawn, a fresh agreement or arrangement between you and someone else. Ceres tells you there needs to be a finer balance drawn in either your existing relationship, or if this is an emerging one, you need to know it is there from the get-go. How? By knowing what you need and being honest about it. And by taking the time to discover the other party wants the same thing too.
With you, Sag, that balance is all about what you want to do or experience in the big wide world in the name of personal desire and freedom balanced against what you need on an emotional emotional level. Is you current or potential partner able to provide this? Have you taken the time to explain it? Often there are just misunderstandings to be cleared up. Ceres trine to Saturn in your 3rd allows you to leap frog over reluctance to talk about this or to lay your cards on the table from the get-go.
Seeking that special person who sees love as a journey like you do? New circles or connections could open up which bring you into each other’s orbits thanks to the planets in your social sector pinging off the fated, dated North Node and Ceres alignment to Mercury in your 8th on the 6th. Dates to watch for close encounters of the karmic kind are Mercury trine North Node (3rd), Mars trine North Node (21st), and Sun trine North Node (26th).

Others could find work or professional circles place new people in their path. It’s not just time to shine but time to climb this month. The 3rd brings us a Mystic Rectangle. A super-charged aspect which looks like the back of an envelope when we see it in a chart. Knock, knock, ding dong, ping ping. Answer the door or the call to action. Let opportunity in. Don’t procrastinate or worse – pretend you’re not home! The last Mystic Rectangle appeared back in July. What happened back then?
So, think message in a bottle, email, snail mail, news, texts, that WhatsApp group, answers, announcements, invitations or door knocks. There’s an offer, acceptance or something opens up for us under these aspects which are a mix of trines, sextiles and oppositions. They are free-flowing but at the same time we have to make some kind of effort or stretch ourselves. Or we have already done that and now comes our result. Or we now make that extra effort to make it real.
This one weaves energy from two fellow mutable signs – Mars in Virgo and your 10th and Neptune in Pisces and your 4th, with cardinal emotional pragmatism – Pluto in Capricorn and your 2nd and the Moon in its ruling sign of Cancer and your 8th. This relates to money, career, security, home and living arrangements. What this rectangle contains may change or impact on one, some of all of these areas.
You also have a new Moon appearing in your 10th on the 7th. Mercury is the ruling planet of Virgo and your 10th and is now slowing down in your 11th of groups and goals. Your 10th is all about establishment and long haul efforts. So, an opportunity which begins now is likely to have been worked on or invested in by you for a while now. This along with the Rectangle could bring you material rewards or acknowledgement now.
While the Sun remains in this house, you are ‘on show’ in some way. Your public image and reputation matter. You’re being asked to step up and own your path. And get serious about what it is you want. Don’t forget while you do – this house also rules the status of our partner in traditional astrology. So, get serious about that too for serious results. The dates to watch are the trines by Mars and the Sun to the North Node in your 7th – 21st and 26th, and the Grand Air Trine also on the 26th between the Moon in your 7th, Mars in your 11th and Saturn in your 3rd.
By all means, set career goals in motion now as this month supports that application, pitch, promotion or raise. But once Mercury turns backwards from the 27th, ensure you can put things on hold or else enter a period of revision or refinement. Go back over what you have achieved so far and mine those past and existing contacts which could yield fresh results once Mercury is direct again next month.
Venus shifts into your 12th house from the 10th enhancing your ability to enchant. You may have a galaxy far, far away other worldly vibe about you that others find exotic and alluring. This transit enhances your psychic, intellectual and creative gifts. And if you are not physically travelling at this time (always that favourite Sag activity), you will journey via fantasy, science fiction, dream journaling and visualisation. Vesta’s arrival in here on the 21st asks you who you believe you are or can be? Again, delve deeper into what makes you truly you and align this with what you seek in a partner or need to ask your partner for. Take it by doing so you are planting the seeds for your new cycle.
Mars is also on the move into your 11th and is joined by the Sun from the 22nd. Goals and friends with become infused with fresh focus and passion. Aligning with groups of people who share the same dreams or outlook brings all kinds of connection potential to the fore. Mars in here is especially suited to joining in anything which involves sport, the outdoors and physical activity or anything that involves strategy and a sense of competition. Joining a chess club fits this if you are not your sporty type Sag for instance.
Discovering and going after what fires up your soul and being an active player in your destiny will be contrasted with the home centric and intuitive full Moon in your 4th on the 20th. From wide open spaces to home on the range – you may now take some time out to look at what sustains your soul.
This is the full Corn or Harvest Moon and in its ruling house in your chart. The time of gathering as the year pivots and day and night becomes equal on the 22nd with the Sun’s entry into your 11th and the equinox. Or if you are in the Southern Hemisphere, this is spring and your time for planting.
On its way to Pisces and your 4th house, the waxing Moon passes both Saturn and your ruler Jupiter in your 3rd.. This process will have you looking deep into your needs and how you are communicating these. Watch at this time whether you go deeper into realms of storytelling, sci fi, metaphysical subjects or even arm chair travel. Are you using these to inspire your next step or as a means of avoiding taking action or talking?
Use the energy of this Moon to look back at what you have achieved since the time of the summer solstice. Celebrate the milestones you have reached. If there are goals you have yet to achieve, now come up with an action plan to at least make inroads towards them between now and the winter solstice at the end of your birthday season. If it is an existing goal then recommitting and coming up with a revised plan to do so fits perfectly within the Mercury retrograde weather in full effect from the 27th.
Someone may be in a position to help with this or this may even be a family member, someone you live with or a person returning from the past as Venus and Neptune open a portal between the present and what you next need for your path on the 29th. This could even be that fellow free spirit I talked about earlier. Align hearts and purpose for perfect double acts, Sag.
In a nutshell: New dawns in double acts ask you to first delve deep into what you need, Sag. Aligning your truth with love results in you and the other party getting what they want. If there’s a balance to be struck – you’ll discover it.
