Libra September 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


While this is always the point in any year when there is a need for time out to hear yourself think, to reflect and to spend time navel gazing, this won’t be to the degree that it often is. Until the Sun returns to Libra on the 23rd September, you’re in the final weeks of an old solar year, a time for closing old doors, reflecting on the journey this year has taken you on and on recharging your batteries, ahead of your birthday month and new solar year. This year the lines between the past, present and future are fuelled, with Venus already in Libra as you move into the new month.

While Venus will leave on the 9th September, with Ceres returning on the 6th September, as you continue to look back you will also continue to look forward. This allows you to go window shopping before your birthday month and new solar year begins. Even before it does, Mars’ return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on the 11th September, not only guarantees support from the get go, but reinforces a need to move forward trusting your heart.

In the meantime, Venus’ return to your income sector on the 9th September will kick off the most potentially lucrative months of the year. Venus, planet of money returns every year, to fuel your confidence and attract opportunities. With Jupiter leaving exactly two months later on the 9th November, the planets of money will come together as a team. With Uranus in retrograde motion in your financial sector, as you look to the future on the income front, on the financial front as a whole the focus is on the rear view mirror.

Love 2017Libra September 2018 Love Horoscope

On the romantic front, something special is happening this month and it is all because of Mars, planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos, who left your romantic sector last month. Just having Mars in retrograde motion in your romantic sector has been rare, but to retrograde back out means that when he turns direct, which he did last month, he’ll have to return and start over again. Mars makes his return on the 11th September, returning to start over again, spending an additional two months fuelling your romantic passions and fighting spirit, on top of the three months he has already spent here.

While Venus, planet of love will leave Libra on the 9th September, she too has a retrograde phase ahead and will return for another visit before Mars leaves. At a point in the year when there is rarely any romantic activity, Mars begins a massively important encore visit. With Mars not leaving your romantic sector until the 16th November and the Sun always returning in January, this gives matters of the heart and all things romantic the kind of boost that will dominate the rest of this year and then catch its second wind in the New Moon.

On the relationship front, the reverse is happening with Chiron, planet of healing retrograding back out on the 26th September. Chiron only returned in April, with the planet of healing making his first visit in four decades. While it is rare for Mars to make a double dip visit to your romantic sector or any area of your chart, Chiron is an outer planet and that is what they do. Chiron will turn direct later in the year and will return in February, when he’ll settle down and stay here until 2026. For now, this is more an introduction to the healing phase, which you’re able to put on hold and then pick up again next year.

Money 2017Libra September 2018 Money Horoscope

While Jupiter has been in your income sector since last October and in direct motion since July, this is the month when things finally start to come together. Spending 13 months in your income sector and then not returning until 2029, Jupiter is focused on the big picture and more on long term and sustained growth, rather than a snatch and grab now. This is why, especially during the long haul phase of Jupiter’s supposedly lucky visit, it can appear to be anything but a lucky year for income growth.

Yet Jupiter is focused on the big picture and on sustainability after he leaves, which is why he is spending so much time supporting Neptune in your work sector, knowing that ongoing job growth is essential to his goals. In direct motion since the 11th July, Jupiter is starting to build up speed and momentum and leaving on the 9th November, this was always going to be the month when you started to see things moving. However, things change dramatically with Venus’ return to your income sector on the 9th September.

Jupiter might be focused on the long gain and not on snatch and grab opportunities, but as the planet of money Venus is happy to focus on the low hanging fruit. Normally moving through in just 24 days and focused on both boosting your confidence and attracting income opportunities, Venus is instead here for nearly two months and even then, returning for a double dip visit in December. Venus returns on the 9th September, exactly two months before Jupiter leaves on the 9th November, with the planets of money and luck coming together to bring things home

Career 2017Libra September 2018 Career Horoscope

This is not an active point of any year on the job front and in fact, this is the halfway point between the Sun’s last visit to your work sector and the next. With Neptune in your work sector since 2012 and before that continuous planetary activity since 2003, things will never go completely off the boil. Yet when you have planets in an area of your chart for years rather than weeks or months, a retrograde phase each year is always a valuable chance to pull back. For Neptune, planet of dreams, that time has always been between June and November.

In retrograde motion until the 25th November, but with Mars returning to fire things up from the 16th November, this quiet phase will be shorter this year. Yet while Neptune is in retrograde motion, there is likely to be a lot more job confidence than in most years and also greater access to the past, second chances and untapped job potential. With Chiron, planet of healing gone since April you haven’t had to focus on also dealing with old baggage. With support from Jupiter in your income sector and from Venus when she returns there on the 9th September, that job confidence will only increase.

Chiron will retrograde back into your work sector on the 26th September, but a month after last month’s Full Moon, this will be a chance to address anything this has flushed out. After five months on his own, Neptune has established his lead on the job front, with Chiron returning to finish what he started in 2010, which is to lay old ghosts to rest. The Moon will move through your work sector from the 23rd September to the 25th September. Coming full circle from last month’s Full Moon, this could trigger unexpected developments. What is born on a Full Moon often comes to fruition when the Moon comes full circle.
