Cancer September 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


The biggest challenge that you’ll face this month is relaxing enough to enjoy what is set to be a vibrant and creative month and if you’re used to being busy 24/7, you may have become used to playing the guilt card if you take time out. However, two factors make it essential that you do. The first is that Jupiter’s return to your work sector from early November through to December 2019, will kick off a busy year, with a chance until then to hold back. The second is that while the focus is on matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative, this is something you can take with you, into every aspect of your life.

There is also a strong focus on all your relationships, from personal to professional and everything in between, as well as on communication and things close to home. There is enough happening on the professional front to keep the wheels turning, including a Full Moon in your career sector on the 25th September. Yet with both planets in your career sector in retrograde motion and no planets in your work sector until the end of next month, there is nothing to be gained by going above and beyond.

In the meantime, you’re likely to find that things come together financially and that any financial tension over recent months dials right back. That has been the case since Mars retrograded back out of your financial sector last month, giving income matters room to breathe. The Sun left your income sector last month, but until Mercury leaves on the 6th September, he’ll continue to give you the smart head for money needed to seize opportunities. Mercury will be gone by the time Mars returns to your financial sector on the 11th September, with a chance to focus on financial growth.

Love 2017Cancer September 2018 Love Horoscope

Things get a little more serious on both the romantic and relationship fronts this month, though to start with it is your relationships that will demand your full attention. It was on the 13th August that Mars retrograded back into a rare double dip visit to your relationship sector, teaming up with Saturn and Pluto, also in retrograde motion. Mars only turned direct on the 28th August and until Saturn turns direct here on the 6th September, there will still be a lot of focus on the past.

The 6th September is a significant day, for not only does Saturn turn direct just five days before Mars is due to leave, giving you the means and the passion to move forward Mercury, planet of communication returns to your communication sector on the same day. With the Sun in your communication sector until the 23rd September and Mercury until the 22nd September, both up to and after Mars leaves your relationship sector on the 11th September, there is a massive amount of support from the communication gods. There is not only the potential for a relationship turnaround, but a breakthrough.

Meanwhile, while Jupiter turned direct in your romantic sector in July, he’s been happy to wait while you focused on your relationships. However, Jupiter is not being altruistic or selfless, for there is a very good reason why he’s patiently waiting. Jupiter has been waiting for Venus, planet of love, who finally returns to your romantic sector on the 9th September. This is the same day that Jupiter moves into his final two months and with Venus spending a rare two months, instead of her normal 24 days and even spending time in retrograde motion, this is when the planets of love and luck come together to kick off what has the potential to be the most romantically charged months of the year, if not the decade.

Money 2017Cancer September 2018 Money Horoscope

Mars’ departure from your financial sector last month saw any financial tension or pressure drop back, even if nothing in your financial situation changed. For the first time in decades, the warrior planet of the cosmos made a rare three month visit to your financial sector just as the Sun, Mercury and Venus were moving through your income sector. This put them in opposition and is the reason why a total lunar eclipse in your financial sector in late July and a solar eclipse in your income sector last month were so intense.

Mars retrograded back out just as the Sun moved into his final 10 days in your income sector, finally giving income matters some breathing space. While the Sun has since moved on, until he leaves on the 6th September Mercury is giving you the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game. While the North Node will stay on to keep the momentum going, having a game plan or clear intentions by the time Mercury leaves, will allow you to then put things on auto pilot.

By the time Mars returns for a rare double dip visit to your financial sector on the 11th September, Mercury will be gone from your income sector. This means there won’t be a repeat of the financial tension of recent months, but at a time when income matters have already built up a healthy momentum that won’t be impacted. Where income and money matters were competing for your attention, income matters have had their turn and you can now turn your attention to money matters as a whole. The 11th September marks the point where you’re able to start taking your power back.

Career 2017Cancer September 2018 Career Horoscope

While things are fairly low key on the professional front this month, this is exactly what you need. With Saturn in your work sector from December 2014 to December 2017, a three year boot camp meant that there was no point in any year that you’ve been able to take your work hat off, always needing to be on your game. With lucky Jupiter returning on the 9th November to kick off your biggest year for job growth and opportunities in over a decade, one that won’t run its course until December 2018, make the most of this slower pace.

The reason for this slower pace is that Eris and Chiron, the only planets in either of your two professional houses, are both in retrograde motion in your career sector. Chiron will retrograde back out on the 26th September, just a day after a Full Moon here on the 25th September has the potential to create a breakthrough. This is a Full Moon that will also see the Moon clash with the Sun, in his early days in your home and family sector. This is a Full Moon that will always put your work/life balance to the test and with Jupiter just six weeks away from your work sector by then, neither the timing nor the message could be better.

The Moon is in your career sector from the 25th September to the 27th September, fuelling your professional instincts and imagination, as well as putting your work/life balance to the test and creating the potential for a breakthrough. With Uranus returning to your career sector in November and Jupiter to your work sector just two days later, things are getting ready. With Jupiter literally drawing closer by the day, the Moon’s return to your work sector from the 15th September to the 18th September will bring some valuable clues, hunches and insights.
