September 2020 Astrological Forecast
Astrologically, September begins with a limited amalgamation of positive planetary aspects that favours the month and assists the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Mercury, planet of announcements and news, will link encouragingly with Pluto (plagues) together with the Sun (health) joining Uranus (experiments) from the 1st up to the full Moon on the 2nd, 3:22 pm AEST. This promising and stimulating terrestrial combination will initially stimulate sectors of medical, hospital, nursing homes, laboratory, vaccines, plasma, health, treatment and the healing signs of the zodiac, Virgo and Pisces.
Although September looks slightly promising compared to past months of COVID problems, the Mars/Saturn/Pluto combination will continue to invite new virus cases resulting from additional medical testing, and numerous people showing irresponsibility with personal hygiene and non-distancing in social circles. Be prepared for further elderly bereavements as well throughout this month. However, be patient, the tide is slowly turning for the better. Fortunately, governments, scientists and health workers around the globe will be testing, cooperating, financing, monitoring, engaging, and controlling the virus situation far better in September than they have done in the past.
One advantage September appears to offer: Mars, planet of aggressiveness, will begin to retrograde (slow down) from the 9th, and Jupiter (beneficial) will commence a slow, positive, direct motion from the 13th, assisting global laboratories and drug manufactures to formulate feasible experimental vaccines and plasmas for testing and future distribution. However, it will not be until Venus (balance) enters the pharmaceutical and health sector sign of Virgo during October 3 to 29, that parts of the world will be ready to test an interim COVID-19 vaccine in quantity. Remember, in the meantime, if you do not have to venture out for good reason such as work, medical, essential food shopping or front-line services and assistance, then stay at home and restrict your movements. If you are feeling off-colour, then do not go to work, get yourself tested and stay in isolation. Washing hands regularly and keeping your distance around others is a must to stay healthy. The danger period is not over yet, so do not become complacent and impatient, otherwise face the consequences.
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 virus will continue to break out from time to time throughout 2021, due to the slow movement of Pluto (virus) but will also be kept under control by medical authorities. Interesting trivia to note, during the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic many mothers made little bags filled with small blocks of camphor and tied them around the necks of family members, level with the chest area under the wearer’s shirt. Apparently elderly people and children benefitted greatly from this procedure, as the camphor apparently killed air born bugs and prevented bronchial blockage problems with the nose and chest. Evidently, this procedure made it easier for the user to breath, as the vapour flowed through the bag to the nostrils and into the lungs. It may be an old wives' tale, but many people today are rebirthing the procedure with extraordinary results: no COVID-19, for them so far, they say? The camphor appears to be extremely refreshing and apparently keeps the respiratory system clear of blockage.
Being patient will have its rewards in the months ahead. A variety of global good news should follow the solar eclipse by the New Moon, December 15, 2020, 2:16 am AEST, in the communications and travel sign of Sagittarius, together with Jupiter, planet of improvements. moving for the first time in 12 years into the progressive and independent sign of Aquarius. This combination will fractionally open the door for various vaccines, new business and employment opportunities as Mars (impatience) moves out of Aries (restlessness) and into Taurus (financial stability) on January 7, 2021. From this period onward we should see an enthusiastic population preparing for a positive rebuilding year throughout 2021, with opportunities for many businesses to gradually rescue past financial losses, and employers to employ those seeking jobs.
With the American elections set for November 3, 2020, September will be an interesting month for Joe Biden (Scorpio) and Donald Trump (Gemini) as they re-evaluate their individual electoral strategies.
According to Biden’s horoscope, September’s group of planetary aspects indicates he will be highly ambitious, full of optimism and enthusiasm concerning American constituent’s acceptance of his Democratic way of life, promises, enterprises and plans. Biden (Scorpio) will also be pleasingly influenced by a favourable election poll. However, he may be foolishly overconfident by taking on Republican challenges and making promises he cannot really meet. Biden’s promises appear to lack policies and substance. He and Kamala Harris (Libra, nominated vice president) will have to be extra careful condemning Trump – this could back-fire as the months goes by. Biden’s planetary aspects will tend to make him confused and insecure throughout September and he may have a need to find emotional structure in his life.
Internal transformation and changes in his personal presentation are likely, and the American public will notice these changes over the next two months. Unconscious fears could emerge in Biden, and he may recall negative events of the past Obama administration that need to be resolved. Biden hails the Black Lives Matter cause to get votes, yet he attended the funeral of a high member and friend of the Ku Klux Klan. Intense emotions, jealousy, and a tendency to go to extremes or lose control of what he is saying are also indicated throughout September. Biden will tend to be more impatient and impulsive during the next two months, which could lead to fights and arguments with his Democratic electoral partners and team. Disagreements in family matters are also possible. Due to his impatience and carelessness, Biden may also have a tendency toward accidents or falls during his campaign travels. Behind the scenes he may feel pressured, lonely, and depressed at times during September.
Biden's social life and political meetings are likely to cause him much stress, tension, and tiredness. There could be communication problems and lack of concentration in what he is thinking, saying, or debating. Changing moods could make Biden uncertain and less logical. He may also be involved in a variety of virtual rallies and projects without obtaining any appreciable results, due to the COVID -19 situation. There will be a need for Biden to make some changes within himself if he is to meet Trump in political debates, otherwise he will be floundering and disillusioned, much to the disappointment of the Democratic faithful and the American voters. Kamala Harris (Libra) may have to watch her impatience and ego, trying to run terminology and policy over Biden. Election poll movement could indicate from the 28th onward favouring Trump. Watch for fake news.
Viewing Trump’s horoscope (Gemini) for September, he will show much vigour, vitality, and enthusiasm for action. His self-confidence will increase, making competent economic policies, and decisions could advance his leadership prospects, immaterial of the present fiscal and global health situation. Trump will have an individualised need to act and realise his goals to make America great again and overcome the COVID-19 situation with an urgent vaccine or plasma allocation, when available. September will be a month of initiatives, courage and vitality for Trump, an ideal time for him to begin new projects and policies that require optimistic energy to fulfill. His self-confidence and authority will increase, and his leadership abilities will show positiveness as he executes his ideas to the American public. September is the commencement of a new cycle for Trump. He will illustrate new experiences and accelerate his normal pace on the campaign trail. Trump will become more aware of what American constituents want and need. September is a month of observation, organisation and greater authority in his presidency. The astrological aspects in his horoscope do indicate he will be subject to certain deceptions and deceits by the Democrats and media; this will make Trump more determined to avoid victimisation and negative criticism. September will be a learning month of difficult tests during which he will become aware of his own limitations.
Fake news will be rife during September, causing media hype, debate, mystery, and confusion. Trump will confidently battle media speculation as he becomes the target of gossip or slander over past innuendoes, bad habits and alleged immoral practices. Trump’s goals during September will be achieved through his own positive effort and perseverance. During September, his ability to communicate and express himself more clearly will be tested. Success this month with his constituents will mainly depend on the confidence he has in himself and his ability to make unquestionable economic decisions. His oral debates as well as written communication will be the instrument that will express his dynamic authority and personal security options for all Americans. September is a month of great benefits and satisfaction in his leadership, he will receive assistance from manufactures, industries, and corporations, together with a little good luck in solving immediate economic problems with employment on the rise and stock markets positively performing. There will be much tension and positive debate in Trump's electoral environment during September, as he calls in the federal troops to settle law and order.
The general public either love or loathe Trump, but there is one thing you can not take away from him – his ability to move America in constructive economic ways that have never been possible by any president in the past. Trump is a negotiator who has achieved remarkable success in foreign policy and overcome outdated trade and investment policies, boosting the stock markets (pre- COVID-19). Trump stood his ground regarding China’s trade domination and America's national interest. His unique diplomacy with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un has prevented an escalation of threat to South Korea and Japan. Although there are more negotiations to take place, Trump will certainly receive the respect from Kim for future peace and possible trade negotiations. According to his horoscope, Trump is not a warmonger and tries to avoid global devastation unless it threatens the USA directly. An example of this was the missile strike of Iranian commander and terrorist Qasem Soleimani. Trump refrained from further attacks on Iran’s troops when they downed a US drone as this would have caused massive troop and civilian loss of life. Trump's latest peace movement between Israel and the UAE is exceptional and no other president has succeeded in peacefully negotiating an Arab/Israeli agreement. Trump (Gemini) has a planetary combination in his horoscope that makes him a determined mediator, always keeping the USA’s interests in mind.
Trump’s horoscope indicates he could secure a second term as President of the USA, on November 3, 2020. Reason? Planetary aspects are favourable for Trump. The majority of working Americans, since Trump has been president, have witnessed the strongest economy the world has ever seen. The stock market broke records, the unemployment rate dropped to its lowest level in half a century, and income inequality fell as blue-collar jobs returned to jobs in the USA. Economic security and law and order is what the American public want and that is what they would get with Trump as president.
According to the horoscope of the State of Victoria (Sagittarius), the month of September will continue with restrictions and limitations due to Pluto (virus), Jupiter (expand), and Saturn (limitation) all conjoining Victoria’s natal Mars in the mid-heavens of the horoscope. Unfortunately, this combination will be present until January 5, 2021, influencing restriction with business, employment, education, health services, real estate, travel, and the general economy of the state. The Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto combination will also link with Victoria’s natal Jupiter (extravagance) in the hospital, medical, nursing homes, schools, colleges, and university sector, influencing continuous new findings of COVID-19, bereavements and multiple government expenditure for the elderly, hospitals, medical services, police, and security personnel. Planet Mercury (mental health) could also be a major problem for many Victorians during this restrictive period as it will clash with natal Venus (emotions) and Mars (anger) influencing much unhappiness through forced restriction, loneliness, and tempting possible suicides. This disruptive combination of transit planets is also affecting Uranus (sudden and unexpected) in Victoria’s financial and earning sector of the horoscope, creating mass borrowings for the Victorian government to keep the state from going bankrupt. The people of Victoria must abide by all the government and health regulations if they wish to get back to a normal routine from January 7, 2021, when Mars (action) commences a financial boost in the Victorian horoscope, through to March 5, 2021. During this cycle, business and employment opportunities should begin to flow slowly again.
The good news for September: Venus (balance) will move into the zodiac sign of Leo (achievement) from the 7th, Mars (intense) will retrograde on the 9th (slowing certain restrictions) and Jupiter (law) will move in a direct motion on the 7th, assisting Victorians with government security downgrade from stage 4 to 3 by the New Moon eclipse 3:17 am AEST, December 13. However, citizens must continue to abide by the health rules, otherwise November could see another spike through complacency.
Daniel Andrews (Cancer), Premier of the state of Victoria, has received a hammering, constant disapproval and abuse from media and many constituents regarding his handling of the COVID-19 situation in Victoria. Viewing his horoscope, Andrews is a person of strong opinions and he can embellish or exaggerate to get his point across. He has an aptitude for storytelling and performing and any adverse publicity by media personalities does not seem to bother him. He is proud, caring, and ambitious, and will strive to excel, to stand out and be recognised for who and what he is as a Premier. Andrews has a very strong ego drive and likes to be Number One. He finds it difficult to take orders from others or to stay in the background; he hates being wrong; he will always insist that he is right! One aspect of Andrews' personality that must be accepted by his constituents: he will never publicly bad-mouth anyone, he does take responsibility for his own actions.
Andrews is forceful, strong, energetic, determined and highly competitive. He plays hard, he plays to win, and he will not give up easily. He loves admiration and applause and has a strong sense of personal honour and integrity. Andrews is very self-confident, even arrogant at times. Because of his belief in himself, he is always able to accomplish much, but if his confidence is ever undermined by media commentators and political opposition he becomes self-conscious, defensive, and rather belligerent and stubborn. According to Andrews' horoscope, he is determined to lock down the state of Victoria for at least another four months, to save lives and endeavour to control the COVID-19 virus issue in his state. However, he will be persuaded by Federal Authorities to open borders during September. The biggest problem Andrews will have is with his Belt and Road Agreement with China.
Prime Minister Morrison (Taurus) will certainly have his share of debate as the Prime Minister orders the closing of certain China agreements for the country’s national security interest. Difficult dates for Andrews during September: 2, 8, 13, 16, 20, 22, 24, 28.
With Mercury, planet of agreements and communication, entering the zodiac sign of Libra (balance) from the 6th, and linking with Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto through the month, expect a cycle of obstruction, blockage and withdrawal as the global population works around the world of dilemma and involuntary restriction. However, September will also create moments of harmony, especially in many personal and business relationships, provided one is prepared to compromise, show patience and act in moderation. September is an excellent month for those requesting or arranging important assistance through banking, forming bonds, attending to contracts, legal matters, study, writing, meditation, exercise, sport, music, social transformation, endorsements, redecorating, building greater security and seeking authorization over important matters.
Employment concerns will continue to be competitive throughout September and the average family budget could be stretched. Service type industries are favoured for those looking for employment: medical, aged and domestic care, caretakers, cleaners, janitors, contractors, grocers and food market outlets, computer operator/analysts, optometrists, service repairs, hardware, bakers, butchers, police, security personal, defence forces, agriculture, farming, carpenters, builders, plumbers, electricians, painters, mechanics, hairdressers, beauticians, masseurs, funeral services, truck drivers, delivery services, online services, microbiologists, laboratory assistance, psychologists, and nightshift workers.
Unfortunately, September will continue to be a month of domestic troubles for many due to the restrictiveness, selfishness, forced boredom, financial worries, career limitation and cancelation or redirection of some organised sporting, entertainment, and travel activities. With Venus (leisure) under fire with Uranus (disruption), care should be taken with organised activities during the week 14th-19th. Disappointments could also be common due to adverse and unusual weather conditions around the globe and restricted travel and transportation issues.
With a New Moon on the 17th, AEST in the zodiac sign of Virgo, private hospitals, colleges, universities, and overseas student attendance will be selective with reduced funding and attendances. Many professional educational career positions could be under threat, with retrenchments and sackings. Unfortunately, September may also see a flood of requests for assistance from charities and religious organisations. The emphasis during September will be on health, sickness, hygiene, diet, medicines, drugs, and food products.
September media news will contain activities related to government and corporation secrets, espionage, private or confidential legal matters, hidden places and things, prisons, activities carried on behind the scenes or in seclusion, mysteries, puzzles, or things in the background of people’s lives. Many of these issues seem to surface and need to be dealt with throughout this month by governments and corporations and well-known celebrities. If you feel shut out, cut off, restricted, denied, or encounter underhandedness, then seek professional assistance. September is a positive month for investigations, neutralising the negative and making positive transitional changes.
Due to Mercury (discussions) adversely connecting with six planets throughout September, marital and personal relationships, disarray, and unsettledness will be prominent throughout the month. Care should be taken with impatience, as tempers will ignite, influencing family violence and partnership break-ups. Partnership separations and divorces will be prominent for many during September, due to extra-marital affairs, sexual diseases, excessive alcohol, gambling, and violence. The legal profession will be busy with court proceedings. Major crime, shootings, accidents, drug dealings, traffic offences, corruption, scams, fraud, robberies, and assaults could also be on the increase throughout September. Take care.
With Mars (energy) clashing with Jupiter (large), Saturn (frustration) and Pluto (destruction), houses, buildings, wildfires, fuel, and gas explosions around the globe will be fierce until February 27, 2021. Care should be taken with pleasure boating and cargo sea transportation; high ocean seas, storms and windy conditions are predicted.
September should witness a confusing, unusual, and volatile month overall. It will be arduous this month to sustain global confidence in international trade, as China prepares for a difficult and obstructive bargaining period ahead.
Markets may encounter changes during the 7th to 16th. Watch from the New Moon on 17th, in the medical sign of Virgo. Biotech could show promise. During September gold may see another spike from the 7th, when Venus (extravagance) moves into Leo (gold) until October 2nd. From the 17th to 24th markets could show some volatility due to Chinese/USA/Australia unrest, and Russia beginning negotiations with Arab states. Oil should show upward movement during 11th—13th and tech stocks should maintain steady gains, especially during 14th - 18th. Watch for changes in financials during 27th – 30th. With Covd-19 continuing to affect global economies, China will be waiting in the wings to pounce on undeveloped or financially strapped countries for investment. Bitcoin investors could also see profitable gains around 28-30th.
With the markets changing hour by hour at present due to spot announcements, it is difficult to predict the final bell + or - for the day as the planets are influenced by the Moon in transit. The following ASX trading days may assist investors, using the plus and minus method overall for the trading days. Care should be taken with minus days as they will fluctuate hourly, then by the end of trading for the day the ASX could end up plus at closing or vice versa.
