A lunar eclipse in your sign on September 28, will be seen mainly during the evening of the day before, by those in the Americas. The best views are from South America and the eastern side of North America, plus Western Europe and West Africa too. Weather permitting you’ll get a glimpse though, almost anywhere in the world bar the Far East and Australasia. This is the final event in a series of four total lunar eclipses, highlighting your sign and its polarity Libra, during this year and the last. It is the culmination of a lengthy journey where your relationships are concerned, encouraging you to develop a more practical standpoint.

Unless you are watching from southern Africa, the chances are you won’t catch the partial solar eclipse of September 13. And even from this continent’s most southerly localities, you will only see about half the Sun obscured. A handful of scientists and well-heeled adventurers, could catch nearly 79% obscuration from the coastline of Antarctica, depending on the vagaries of the nascent Antarctic spring. But the impact of this eclipse is felt worldwide, even if you are nowhere close to the action. It marks a big step forward in your journey towards self-determination, one where your goals and aspirations better reflect who you are.

There are two possibilities as Saturn returns to your partnership zone, for a stay that continues into late 2017. Firstly, those relationships you’ve come to rely on and regard as the cornerstones of your existence nowadays, will move up to the next level, as you build on your devotion to one another. Secondly, other associations that have been showing signs of stress and could have begun to look like more trouble than they’re worth, will finally and remorselessly approach a welcome denouement. Such contrasting outcomes might seem like a contradictory mixture, but inside you’ll know already, which liaisons fall in which camp…

September sees a powerful configuration impact on your relationships. For a while these have been both challenging and transformative, taking you to places that lie beyond your comfort zone, but which equally have taught you plenty about yourself and what matters most. Certain associations have pressed all your buttons, either on purpose or more coincidentally, putting you in a position where both your personal life and professional affairs, resurrect patterns from the past and bring them to your immediate attention. You can address these now or do it later, but to be wholly conscious of these subliminal effects is the best idea.

Venus resumes forward motion before the first week of September is over, after heading retrograde since the final few days of July. Mars leaves your constellation during the closing stages of this month, leading to a considerable improvement in your closest relationships and the sense of money flowing inwards rather than outwards for a change. It is helpful to remind yourself that overall, the next twelve months are going to be more lucrative and profitable than those preceding them. But where a range of personal interactions are concerned, the patience of your guardian angel and other people too, is wearing thinner than before…

A solar eclipse in your sign is not an everyday occurrence. While there will be a further repetition next year, after that you won’t see another in your region of the sky until 2025. Two solar eclipses in a similar position within less than a year of one another are also noteworthy, marking an important turning point. The effects of an eclipse can prove unwelcome, but this is ameliorated by the presence of Jupiter in your constellation, marking a year of growth and progress with a generally auspicious slant. The solar eclipse of next September is deeper and more spectacular, but it manages to catch the tail end of Jupiter’s visit too…

September sees the Sun coming around to your constellation again, while Mercury enjoys a lengthy visit, that began late in August and lasts through until early November. With Mercury locked in to retrograde motion from September 17, much of this extended stay highlights the philosophical principles by which, you would like to say you are running your affairs. Many folks have a set of beliefs, either picked up from their parents, learned from their experiences, or acquired as the consequence of a certain religious or philosophical perspective. How well do you feel this works in practice, or is there scope for improvement?

Doubtless the biggest news for you this month is the departure of Saturn from your sign. Associated with duty, responsibility, hard work, obligation, restrictions, maturity and career successes, this planet has promoted your advancement wherever you have been willing to commit yourself. However, it has also made it clear that time marches on, suggesting life is no longer what it used to be. In many ways you have been fortunate; as Saturn has connected well with Pluto for the duration of its stay, increasing the chance of a positive outcome. But you won’t be sorry to see the light return, or a bit of enthusiasm either.

There are a couple of ways that you can look at, the return of Saturn to your sign. Firstly, as an unavoidable eventuality you have to grin and bear, ticking off the days on your calendar until something better comes along. Or, you can see it as a valuable opportunity to cut out the extraneous and unnecessary from your sphere of influence, ultimately putting you back on to a path that maybe, you had started to stray away from recently. Your best approach is embracing this second scenario, since that is what Saturn understands. Your essential nature inherently favours the former, which is fine in moderation.

In the closing stages of September, Pluto resumes its forward motion through the zodiac, after turning retrograde back in April. This suggests those long-term changes that have featured over the past seven years are set to continue with their inexorable course, after just a few months of relative stability. You are pleased in a number of ways, since treading water leaves you slightly uneasy, as if you’re just twiddling your thumbs. A sense of instability in your domestic situation isn’t what you had in mind though, especially when the pursuit of conventional expectations and traditional outcomes will only make the situation worse.

Even in antiquity, people knew that eclipses occur in sequences. These each fire an event every eighteen years and there are around forty series running simultaneously. September’s solar eclipse is part of a pattern that began in 1060, shortly before the Norman conquest of England. It also started in your sign, so its revival causes you to question a few issues. You believe you are right about most things, since you have researched the options to arrive at your conclusion. But this does not preclude, updating your views over time. Failing to do so makes you look isolated and an anachronism, which isn’t what you’d want at all.

An emphasis on the Western side of your horoscope puts the focus on other people and for once, it’s all good news. Jupiter, the Sun and Mars emphasise this region of the sky during September and suggest you will enjoy the most fortunate and beneficial experiences, if you take a proactive approach and reach out to those around you, rather than waiting for them to come to you. Saturn’s return to the uppermost sector of your horoscope favours the pursuit of your ambitions and for many, your professional aspirations too. While independence is a key feature of these goals, don’t forget the advantages a partnership can create…
