Leo September 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


This month is dominated by a major coming together of forces on the job and career fronts, but with the professional gods starting to take a divide and conquer approach. By the time Mars retrograded back into your work sector last month, Saturn and Pluto had already been in retrograde motion there for months. Then, when Uranus turned retrograde in your career sector last month, this put all planets in both your professional houses in retrograde motion. While Uranus will remain in retrograde motion until retrograding back out in November, Mars turned direct late last month and Saturn will turn direct on the 6th September.

With Mars wrapping up his rare double dip visit to your work sector on the 11th September, the early part of the month could see some real movement, momentum and a turnaround on the job front. With Mercury in your income sector from the 6th September to the 22nd September and the Sun leaving there on the 23rd September, they’re on hand to help you highlight and exploit the potential across the income, work and career fronts. However, while there is a heavy influence on your professional and financial game, this isn’t all you have to focus on this month.

This is an important month for home, family and/or property matters, with Venus joining Jupiter in your home and family sector on the 9th September. With Jupiter leaving on the 9th November, Venus returns on the same day that the planet of luck and expansion moves into his final two months, kicking off something special on the home front. With Mars returning for a rare double dip visit to your relationship sector on the 11th September, the huge amount of support from the communication gods comes with perfect timing.

Love 2017Leo September 2018 Love Horoscope

To start with, things have gone quiet on the relationship front and dearth in romantic activity continues. Yet this is at odds with the sense of both romantic and relationship confidence and anticipation you’re likely to begin the month with. On the relationship front, this is understandable, for while Mars left your relationship sector last month, he promised he would return and will, on the 9th September. Mars has already spent three months here before retrograding back out last month, making a rare double dip visit just 29 days after leaving.

Yet leaving when he did, Mars was able to move out of the way while the rest of your birthday month ran its course, taking away the pressure and relationship tension this had created until then. By the time Mars returns to your relationship sector on the 11th September it will be to find no more planetary activity in Leo and therefore there’ll be no more oppositions and no more pressure on you and your relationships. Yet when Mars returns to spend another two months here, you begin this do over chapter knowing what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.

The romantic confidence is harder to explain, for there has been no planetary activity in your romantic sector since Mars left in March. It was the Moon’s return to your romantic sector late last month, that brought romantically charged lunar vibes into play that came with a strong sense of romantic confidence and anticipation already embedded. This will be amplified when  the Moon returns again from the 20th September to the 23rd September. For by then, your luckiest year for love in over a decade will be just over six weeks away.

Money 2017Leo September 2018 Money Horoscope

A Full Moon in your financial sector in late August has not only given money matters a push, but has flushed out any balance issues between money coming in and money going out. This is a Full Moon that will always fall at some point during the Sun’s month long visit to your income sector, with the Sun and Moon moving into opposition. As income and money matters clash, any financial tension created will expose any balance issues, while giving both sides a push and a wakeup call. That Full Moon fell during the Sun’s early days, getting this out of the way.

Apart from the Sun’s opposition with Neptune in your financial sector on the 8th/9th September and Mercury’s on the 14th September, there should be nothing to create any undue financial tension. And even that is fairly routine, for ever since Neptune’s return to your financial sector in 2012 no planet has been able to move through your income sector, without moving into opposition. With dreamy Neptune in retrograde motion and well supported by both Venus and Jupiter, the planets of money and luck, any financial tension this may trigger will very quickly turn to motivation.

Even more so as the Sun, Mercury and Ceres find some of the best support they’ve ever seen as they move through your income sector. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of September in your income sector, shining the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options until leaving on the 23rd September. Until leaving on the 6th September Ceres is updating your needs and priorities, while during his stay from the 6th September to the 22nd September, Mercury will give you the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game. What is not the norm is to have powerful forces in play on the job and career fronts at the same time.

Career 2017Leo September 2018 Career Horoscope

While September is always the most important month of any year for income matters, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of September in your income sector, this is not usually an active point in your professional year. This can create a mismatch, where you have the income potential, but not the professional backing that income opportunities need. Fortunately, this is not the case this year and better still, it won’t be the case for a long time to come. The powerful forces in play on the job and career fronts are individually rare, while collectively they have never happened before in our lifetime.

Yet get used to this, for with Saturn in your work sector until December 2020 and Uranus in your career sector until 2026, this is set to become the new normal. You start the month with Uranus and Saturn still aligned and they will remain aligned until the 15th September, but the dynamics will shift. You start the month with both in retrograde motion, but Saturn’s direct turn in your work sector on the 6th September will turn his focus onto the future. Yet with Mars having turned direct on the job front at the end of last month and Pluto in retrograde motion until the 1st October, the past, present and future will overlap all month.

Mars only retrograded back in for a double dip visit last month and until leaving on the 11th September, he will be working to fire things up and get things moving. Mars is the only planet not here for the long haul, so will want to make things happen before he leaves. With Mercury in your income sector until the 22nd September, the Sun until the 23rd September and a New Moon there on the 10th September, this is a stunning month across the income, work and career fronts.
