Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
You seem to be spending a lot of money lately, possibly because you are having a change in lifestyle, such as getting married or having a baby, studying in graduate school, buying a condo or house, investing in your business, moving cross-country, or making other major moves that will ultimately improve your life. The period you are going through now seems to be costly, but it will pay off later. Alternatively, you might be short of cash because someone who promised to send you money has not, and it’s causing a lot of stress. In this case, you will have to keep reminding the person, and you might need a lawyer to get involved if you have a contract where the promise was made in writing. (You would likely have a written agreement—for Virgo, God is in the details.)
Here is something you need to know: If you have any important actions coming up, you must institute them in the first few days of September, if you haven’t already done so in your other favorable time, August. The full moon of September 1, strong until September 5, is a dazzling one for you.
There is another reason you should act quickly and with a strong sense of purpose. Mars, the action planet, is about to go retrograde from September 9 to November 13. Mars is the planet that helps give you the motivation to compete and win. Mars allows you to tackle big goals and find the stamina to keep going when others simply can’t keep up. With Mars missing in action, you may feel overwhelmed or not completely enthusiastic about an assignment you are preparing to present to the market. Your lack of engagement or lack of innovative ideas will be evident to others, even if they are not completely evident to you. A healthy Mars has a caffeinated effect—when Mars is moving direct, you feel raring to go and can’t wait to work passionately on your project. Indeed, when Mars is retrograde, you will miss his power and light.
