With Mars retrograde in Aries, success in September is a lot about staying power, you need to have stamina and patience rather than to be forceful and hard working. Of course hard work helps, but instead of longer hours, work smart and make sure you know when to sit something out and conserve energy. It's about choosing when to act rather than just throwing the kitchen sink at ever activity hoping to get results.
Money tends to accrue via traditional and rather conservative methods and so while you can have a very good month, success comes by doing the basics right and not trying anything too outlandish or risky. Look after your regular clients and they will look after you. Don't waste money chasing something disconnected with your current line of work.
This month is ideal if you are convalescing after a health concern, especially one to do with an accident or flu. Your health is robust, and a positive attitude will help restore your vitality fast. Fresh air and being outdoors are essential for all Cancerians his month, but even more so if you have felt run down or unwell.
In new relationships, you will seek partners with whom you feel an immediate chemistry – it will feel right straight away, or it won’t; if that instant spark is not there forget it. It may even be that the ‘instant spark’ is an intense feeling of annoyance or anger for a person, which later becomes lust as you realize that you are actually attracted to them. Love and hate are so closely intertwined this month; you can go from one to the other rather quickly, and it will lead to exciting and dynamic relations in love whether you have just met or have known each other for a long time.
More time spent at home offers a chance for deeper conversation and yet being very busy it's easy to get distracted by guests, family events or even by ongoing decorating, and to forget about grabbing those private moments to say the words of appreciation and love that can be so healing and which we often forget to say. It is vital to mention, just briefly as it does not have to be sentimental and cringe worthy, why you love your partner and how grateful you are to have them in your life. Take time out for a special glass of wine before the guests come, or a late night nightcap in the bedroom to reaffirm your love and celebrate your relationship. Intimate conversations and verbal affirmations of approval i.e. telling your partner they look nice, and acknowledgement i.e. I know how hard you've been working lately, are better than 100 roses, so be thoughtful and say the things a partner would love to hear.
You should be careful not to let competitiveness get out of control to the point it poisons the atmosphere. This month your own desire to win or achieve a target, even if you are aiming with others for a joint target, can become overbearing and you may lose sight of what is important. Right now, you have to temper enthusiasm and ambition with humility and diplomacy and should avoid seeking to win or succeed at all costs.
The moon waxes from the 17th making this an ideal time for new starts and firing the starting gun on new projects. This is not a good month to change career or embark on a totally new life direction. Local travel for business or pleasure is greatly favored, as are sales, communications, associations with the press, web and app launches, press releases and taking exams.
