Tension will mount at month’s end under the Moon in your sign on the 27th. This Moon, configured with Uranus and Pluto, indicates difficulties with close relationships and a growing desire on your part to assert your independence. Your partner or a family member may be feeling the same. As frustrating as the situation will be, this planetary alignment also offers the opportunity for positive change and self-growth if you work together. Take advantage of Mercury’s transit through Virgo, your solar twelfth house, from the 9th to the 24th to read a self-help book, look within, and let your subconscious thoughts emerge. Chances are, you’ll learn quite a few things about yourself, your life, and your deepest wishes and desires. Try meditation, which can be effective now in activating your sixth sense. Seeing friends will become a higher priority once Mars enters Leo, your solar eleventh house, on the 18th. Line up outings with a favorite group of pals, but also reserve time for your best friend, who could offer some amazing insights on the 23rd. Some people you meet now have the potential to become close friends, but give the relationships time to develop; everyone will not share your high ideals. The September 12 Moon in Pisces, your solar sixth house, could be just the opportunity for you to take a step up in your career or to find a new position. Much will depend upon who you know, so use your networking skills to turn the odds in your favor, both now and in the future. You might socialize with coworkers; if so, encourage them to invite their friends—someone could be a new career connection.
