Late the August 31 or on the east coast early on September 1, Venus goddess of love and beauty and Mars, the planet of action conjoin in Leo bringing romance and social pleasure especially for the fire signs. Venus is still retrograde but slowing down to go direct on the 6th. This is an opportunity to re-evaluate one's values and what is important in relationships. Creativity and being in the spotlight await those born near August 6-8.
On Wednesday September 2 Jupiter and Uranus combine in a stressful angle to each other can bring up unexpected changes or an erratic urge for independence and impulsive actions in particular for Aries born near April 8-10.
Thursday September 3, Mercury, the planet or communication and slippery Neptune weave tales of wonder for creative writers or beautiful songs for musicians but can also indicate muddled communications or passive aggressive tendencies when confronted. This is likely to annoy for Librans born near October 1-2.
On Saturday September 5, the sun in harmony with Pluto in earth signs signaling greater confidence and brings a sense or authority or leadership to Virgos born near September 5-7 and Capricorns December 3-5.
After Labor Day the fall kicks into full swing on Tuesday September 8 as Mars, the planet of action synchronizes with Uranus, the planet of innovation. Changes now bring more freedom or ease in your life. This is an excellent time to find solutions or purchase a car or computer. Those born near August 11-12 and April 8-9 can expect a smooth ride.
