Have a Plan B – and the rest of the alphabet

Is there a better road to take?

A higher path is the highway to heaven

You’re revved up and ready to go this September, Leo. Mercury’s two key oppositions to Jupiter (retrograde) in its ruling 9th however tell you to keep your plans flexible. And have a back-up. Maybe more than one actually. Mercury is in retroshadow when it first opposes Jupiter on the 3rd. And in full fat retro when it makes the same move on the 18th. DO have more than one back up plan if travelling now as both planets which rule travel whether short or long distance, are retroactive, increasing the chances of delays, breakdowns, cancellations, missed connections and general snafus.

On a positive note, some Leo’s may see the return of a missed opportunity or second chance appear. If this happens or if something that disappeared pops back up on that radar, take it this is a sign and simply go for it!

You’re craving excitement, stimulation, company and wanting to mix and mingle due to Mars in your social sector. You want to be part of something – or to start that party! However, watch for the party-pooper. There could be someone in your social circle or wider group who seems to want to cause angst or is looking for a fight. Maybe it’s that person who always insists you go along with their plans. Or else someone taking a positively argumentative approach to a matter. Avoid friends who create drama or seem to attract trouble now. You’ve many more options available if you go look, Leo.

This is a time when your social circle may shift to allow some to exit in order to make room for new players. Perhaps those more aligned now to your truth and the vision you have for your future. Be universal in your outlook if goodbyes occur. And do be open and flexible. Don’t hang on to connections you have outgrown. And don’t say ‘That’s not my scene’ without exploring it first. Your idea of your ‘scene’ may have changed too.

Let’s talk money now, Leo. As it has a lot to say about where you’re at with your self-worth and how you view your cash, income, assets, possessions and even your talents and skills. Venus leaves your sign on the 5th and enters its ruling 2nd in your chart. Time to focus on the bottom line and exactly where the money goes. Ask how much is ‘enough’ and also what money actually buys you. It can’t buy you self-esteem. Needless to say, with Mercury pulling a full reverse on the 10th when the full Moon appears in your ‘other’ money house – your 8th, this isn’t the time to spend.

Negotiations may go back and forth for a while. If you are shopping for a loan or mortgage, do your research and compare. Issues over having enough or even feeling you ARE enough may surface under this full Moon. Do try to separate your financial choices from your emotions. More is in your Full Moon in Virgo Moonscope. And do ensure you have a clear picture of your finances on the 16th when ruler the Sun in your 2nd opposes Neptune in your 8th. And don’t be pressured or talked into expenditures you don’t want or need. If anyone tries a hard-sell pitch on you, that’s a red flag.

If something stalls or simply is left in limbo, take it you may be able to get a better outcome later this month around the 26th when Mercury and Venus meet. September calls for patience and taking the time to gather the facts. We have 60% of planets retrograde in the sky but you can use this to your advantage. See any delays or even reversals for what they are – the universe slowing you down for a good reason. Even if that reason isn’t apparent at first. It will become clear as we head into October.

What about the love? With massive retro-active weather and the ruler of your 7th, Uranus retrograde, this isn’t the time to make big, long term commitments now. Again, patience is your key to happiness in the long term. Resist the urge to merge too quickly for singles. Yes, it (or they) may seem oh-so-hot but then the temperature drops just as quickly. Take it slowly and see if this is a long burn or simply a flash in the pan.

Your ruler is on the move on the 23rd and meets Mercury in its ruling 3rd. Fresh facts may emerge and you’ll be glad you waited. Hours later Mercury re-enters your 2nd giving you yet another opportunity to assess what something is truly worth to you. And to count the cost if necessary. Again, don’t rush into long term financial agreements now. And yes, you are worth the waiting time, Leo.

The new Moon in your 3rd on the 25th points to the beginning of a new phase linked to your ideas, your work, studies, teaching, the internet or news you receive now. Opportunities swirl around you possibly linked to someone you know or stemming from your past efforts. It appears just days before Venus lands in here (29th). News that has been delayed may now arrive. You are overflowing with ideas you want to share. This is an excellent new Moon under which to refine your social media strategy, revise anything you send out (that CV or thesis) and to connect on a more thoughtful level to siblings, cousins, neighbours or even old friends from your wonder years.

Work you are been doing around your money, how you earn it, spend and save it can be put into an action plan from the 30th when Ceres arrives in Virgo. Time spent on a life budget puts you in a position where you feel in charge of your money destiny. Ceres hands you power, purpose and the means to stop robbing Peter to pay Paul if that’s been your pattern. Rich is a feeling. Selling your soul is an expense you no longer need. And spending time with those who don’t reflect or support your values – no longer possible, Leo.

In a nutshell: Being willing to play the waiting game pays off in love. But when it comes to other areas look for alternative routes and remain flexible. The same goes for friendships. Is it time to explore an alternative circle?
