Scorpio September 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


While the Sun won’t return to Scorpio to begin your birthday month and new solar year until later next month, you not so much have the next best thing this month, but something even better. The month long wind down to your old solar year doesn’t even begin until the 23rd September, but Venus’ return to Scorpio on the 9th September is the point when everything, for you, will start opening up. This is the same day that Jupiter moves into his final two months in Scorpio and before leaving on the 9th November, he’s ready to bring things up, in terms of his mission to plant for the future.

Venus returns to Scorpio each year, usually during or just before your birthday month, giving your heart a voice and a clear sense of what you want from the future. Returning on the 9th September for what is usually a 24 day visit could create the danger of peaking too soon or that would have been the case. Had Venus been travelling at her normal speed, she would leave Scorpio early next month, over a month before Jupiter is due to leave and weeks before your birthday month and new solar year begins. Venus is instead here until early November and is already slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn next week that will keep her here.

While working with Jupiter to make his final months as auspicious as possible Venus is also the planet of love and guardian of your relationships. Venus returns to find dreamy Neptune in your romantic sector, where he has been since 2012, but also to find Uranus in your relationship sector, for the first time in three decades. Both are in retrograde motion, with Venus returning to find that this is not only a powerful chance to take your own power back, but that the doors are open to the past and second chances on the relationship front and when it comes to all things fun, playful, romantic and creative.

Love 2017Scorpio September 2018 Love Horoscope

The month starts with a huge amount of nostalgia on both the romantic and relationship fronts and to a degree that will continue all month. Neptune, in retrograde motion in your romantic sector, won’t turn direct until November while Uranus, in retrograde motion in your relationship sector, eventually retrogrades back out in November. Therefore, until November at least, the doors will remain open to the past and second chances across the income, work and career fronts. You also start the month with two planets still in retrograde motion in your communication sector, allowing you to give the past and unsaid words a voice.

What makes the early part of the month even more nostalgic is the fact that Venus, planet of love is in a nostalgic part of your chart until the 9th September. Venus returns here once a year, taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane, in preparation for her return to Scorpio. While Venus has returned to find Neptune not only in your romantic sector, but in retrograde motion since 2012, this is the first time that Uranus has been in your relationship sector in eight decades, let alone in retrograde motion. This turns a nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane into a real opportunity for second chances.

Venus will leave and return to Scorpio on the 9th September and while Neptune and Uranus will remain in retrograde motion and the doors will remain open to the past and second chances on both fronts, a sense of romantic nostalgia will ease back. For returning to Scorpio Venus, planet of love will look to the future, or at least for now. Even here Venus will turn retrograde next month, lending her support to the doors open to the past and second chances on the romantic and relationship fronts. Until then, Venus brings a chance to also look to the future and attract something new.

Money 2017Scorpio September 2018 Money Horoscope

No planetary activity in either of your two money houses does not mean that nothing is happening, with lot of undercurrents in play. Two things matter to the money gods this month, as they prepare for the start of what are destined to be the most potentially lucrative 13 months in over a decade, which start in early November. Those two things are the Moon’s monthly visits to your income sector and what is happening professionally. For while lucky Jupiter won’t return to your income sector until the 9th November, this is a time for getting your professional ducks in a row.

This makes Mercury’s final days in your career sector especially important. While Mercury’s departure on the 6th September will bring all planetary activity on the career front to a close, with the North Node here until the 7th November, his aim is to leave you with your head in the game and with a clear sense of professional direction. The two planets in your work sector might be in retrograde motion, but together with the North Node on the career front, they’re keeping the wheels turning. A Full Moon in your work sector on the 25th September, could bring unexpected developments on the job front, just six weeks before Jupiter’s return to your income sector.

The also makes the Moon’s monthly visit to your income sector a lot more important, with each visit finding Jupiter four weeks closer, with a chance to start lining up in front of new doors before they open. The Moon will make its monthly visit to your income sector from the 15th September to the 18th September. This will not only sharpen your nose for money as Jupiter literally draws closer by the day, but at a point in the month when forces on the job and career fronts are regrouping.

Career 2017Scorpio September 2018 Career Horoscope

While there are cosmic influences in play on the job and career fronts all month, this will mainly make its presence felt in the first and final week of the month and in turn. During the first week, the focus is firmly on career and professional matters as a whole, while in the final week it is all about work and job matters. Why the first week is all about work and job matters, is because with Mercury leaving your career sector on 6th September, he is bringing 14 months of continuous planetary activity to a close.

This makes it important to keep your head in the game, focused on finalising your professional game plan and resolutions and on cementing a sense of professional direction. With the North Node, the force behind last month’s solar eclipse staying on, this will ensure the wheels keep turning, but not in the proactive way as they are when Mercury is here. The Moon will move through your career sector from the 7th September to the 9th September, fuelling your professional instincts and imagination and arriving a day after Mercury leaves, bringing a chance to regroup.

With the North Node keeping the professional momentum going and Eris and Chiron both in retrograde motion in your work sector, things will settle back to a balanced and low key state. It is the Moon’s return to your work sector on the 25th September that will see things heat up there. As well as creating a Full Moon on the 25th September, here until the 27th September, the Moon will ensure your instincts are sharp and you have an intuitive read on work and job matters, as Chiron retrogrades back out on the 26th September. This will be freeing and liberating.
