Cosmic Views for September 2020

Cosmic Views for September 2020


September is traditionally a return to our routine: to work, school, and projects that need to move forward. The cosmic views for September 2020, however, are different from other years.

Unfortunately, none of that is certain, with Covid-19 still not under control. You are being asked to get out of your routine and find new ways to create order. If you’re not in search of a new comfort zone, you should be. No matter how organized you are, the challenges this month will not be resolved with ease.

Mars goes retrograde on the 9th and remains so until November 14th. Tempers and frustration are strong. It’s important to keep yourself calm, getting upset will not help. Take up meditation if you haven’t already, it’s a great way to find your center and keep it. The square Mars makes to Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn in Capricorn adds to the feeling of being stuck. Remember, just give the best you can and let go. If you do, you’ll find a way to handle the impossible. Uranus in Taurus continues to shake up your values by showing you what’s important. The boundaries of your life have been changed, and those who can adapt get ahead.

Don’t complain — adjust. Neptune in Pisces is powerful this month. It opposes the Sun and Mercury in Virgo and trines Venus. Yes, you long for the good-ole-days, that’s your Neptune fantasy, now switch to your creative side and use your imagination to find new ways of socializing and being happy. It’s within your power. Humans succeed in a crisis because they can adapt. The Full Moon on the 2nd in Pisces opposes the Sun and sextiles Uranus. Once again, the need to be flexible is emphasized. Get passed being “right.” It doesn’t work in this environment. What does work is going with the flow and being grateful for what you do have?

Astrologer Linda Joyce explains the cosmic views of September 2020.

Aries (March 21st – April 20th)

The sign of Aries, with its ruler Mars, has the role of the troublemaker. Mars goes retrograde this month, and it unleashes pent-up tension. Mars is the warrior of the universe, so if you have an issue that is making you unhappy, you’ll be on it like a dog with a bone. If you’re tired of conflict, then let it pass. So much of what will arise can’t be resolved or at least not without hard work.

Whomever you find yourself battling will take a strong stand and not hear you, especially if you’ve waited too long to rectify the problem. If the conflict is not a battle, but a project, then tackle it with a positive attitude and then take it one step at a time. A major source of your anxiety comes from having a new vision of where you’re going. This demands a change in plans. Not something you embrace with ease.

Mars goes retrograde on the 9th and becomes the driving force of change for the next three months. Embrace the new vision of your life, do the work, and shape it according to your needs. Then and only then will it be yours. With Neptune opposite the Sun, you may find reality and truth in your face. It’s time to look at life in a very practical way and set yourself up for the next phase. Be positive, and don’t avoid responsibility. Uranus trine the Sun helps you embrace change.

The Full Moon on the 2nd brings up issues of your authority and where you disagree with everyone else. This is a time to be both selfish and selfless. Know what’s important, and only then will you know what can be compromised. If you’re in a relationship, you are working together to change your goals. If you’re single, the person you’re attracted to is not available. And that works for you now.

Taurus (April 21st – May 20th)

Taurus is the sign of love. However, this month with Mars in the 12th, it’s difficult to manifest anything other than anger, perseverance, or anxiety. The 12th house permeates the chart and affects everything in a subtle but powerful way. It represents your spirit, the driving force behind all that you do. With Mars retrograde on the 9th until November 14th, you feel obsessed with accomplishing your goals.

Your ideals will shift along with the cosmic views of 2020. You will see that you have either not asked enough of yourself or asked too much. Finding balance is the key to success. Saturn goes direct on the 29th and begins the final journey back into Aquarius, where it will stay for 2 12 years. Next year you’ll be challenged to structure yourself in new ways. You hate boundaries that limit your freedom, but these will be put in place by you because they are necessary for your growth. Uranus trine the Sun helps you accept change, rather than question it.

The Full Moon on the 2nd in your 11th house of friends asks you to reevaluate a relationship that has let you down. If you can’t trust someone, then they shouldn’t have access to your private world. Venus opposite Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn reveal how you feel and what you want. You’re ready to take the steps toward transforming your life. This is a good thing. Don’t let the unknown frighten you. You’re good at being spontaneous and finding your way in the dark. If you’re in a relationship, then things are both challenging and exciting.

If you have a good partner, then all will go well. But if it has not been good for a while, then things will get worse before they get better. If you are single, you might meet soon someone you care about and not be ready to handle it. Don’t get discouraged; just move slowly.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

Gemini loves to stir up trouble, the kind that’s just annoying. Your power comes from knowing what buttons to push and how to make others think in new ways. Your ruler, Mercury, has been under attack for a while, but this month it connects to whatever is helping you change. It lends support and provides creative ideas. Mars is still causing trouble.

The square it makes to Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter, and Venus creates unnecessary challenges and resistance from others when it comes time to get things done. Mars goes retrograde on the 9th, and the anger you feel goes within. If you don’t resolve it, it will burst forth at the most inopportune time. Mercury, your ruler, is the messenger. When you have a kind heart, you want to make the lives of others better, but for now, you need to take care of yourself. Be an example, and stop preaching or teaching.

How you live your life is the way to peace and success. Put yourself first. Know what makes you happy and what you want. Now give that to yourself. Don’t expect it to come from others. The Full Moon occurs in the 10th house of career. You may have news that will bring about a change or a new opportunity. Venus in Cancer helps you pull in your emotions and protect them from the anger of others. It’s important to protect yourself.

The New Moon at the end of Virgo indicates that at a deep level, you’re ready for a greater truth, one that unifies all parts of yourself. If you are in a relationship, you’re being asked to look at what’s not working and what is. It’s time for a reality check. If you are still single, you may meet a special someone that challenges your mind. It’s up to you to decide how much they also connect to your heart.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

Cancers rule the inner world of your emotions. The Full Moon occurs in your 9th house of ideals, beliefs, and truth. And yes, your beliefs are the building blocks of your life, so it’s important to pay attention. Neptune has been in charge since 2011 and will remain there until 2025. It’s pushing you to reach higher and heal any place where you feel like a victim. Own where you are, if you want to change it.

Then envision the way you’d like it to be. Your unconscious will help you bridge the two, but you’ll have to take a risk. Communication is important now. You need to express how you feel instead of holding on to what’s going on. Your feelings need the light of day. Take the risk. With Mars in Aries and going retrograde on the 9th, it’s your career and goals that need digesting. Once you are very clear on what you want, then make a move.

If nothing else, cast that vision out into the world and start the invisible support that will come your way because you’re letting the universe know what you want. Remember, that’s half the problem – being clear on your vision. The atmosphere of the Mars retrograde is challenging. The environment is tense, and anger is too easily accessed by all. The source of your strength is your ability to adapt and change. Those who adjust to the new challenges will not just survive. They’ll get ahead. This is what you dislike the most. You’re a soul addicted to routine.

If you’re in a relationship, it has not been easy. The planets that are challenging us all reside in your house of partnerships. It will get better, but it’s important to see the truth. If you’re single, you want love, you’re looking for it, and yes, you could find it. However, there are a lot of challenges, and it’s up to you to overcome them.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

Leos are driven to be recognized for their talents and what they do right. Yes, that’s a good thing, as long as it’s balanced with common sense and the ability to not always be in the spotlight. The truth is, one needs both desires to be successful. The difficulties this month reside in your house of health and work. In some areas, it will be easy, but people will still make you angry, and you won’t want to cooperate.

If you have children, it may have to do with their schools. There are so many choices that have to be made with serious consequences. Rely on your intuition and the facts. It has to feel right for you and make sense for you to move forward. Venus enters your sign on the 7th, and it will bring the ability to socialize in some way. Connecting is such a big part of being a Leo. You shine a light on others and are a magnet for a good time.

With Uranus at the top of your monthly chart, your direction is still in a state of becoming. You need to keep an eye on the new idea or offer that will knock on your door. The Full Moon in Pisces indicates a need to transform your life. It may seem strange that the message is so strong, after all, the whole world has to adapt, not just you. However, what the planets are asking is for you to look deeper into what was working and what isn’t now.

It’s time to embrace a bigger truth without letting fear interfere. Mars goes retrograde in Aries on the 9th, and it will challenge your beliefs. Others may even argue with your position. The opposition is there for the right reason. If you’re in a relationship, it’s changing for the better. What’s needed to be fixed will either be fixed or separate you more. If you’re single, your attention is not on relationships. It’s on your schedule and the work you do.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

Virgos have the attention this month. The Sun is in your sign. The Full Moon on the 2nd in Pisces indicates you’re in a position to make important decisions. The path and truth should be easy to see, and it’s happening early in the month. Pay attention. With Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn in your 5th house, of authority and a good time, you are probably working on your control issues more than anything else.

You attract uncertainty and the unknown, and at the same time, you dislike being indecisive or having to figure things out. It’s there to make you comfortable when you’re not in control. This is the real position of power, with Mars going retrograde on the 9th, anxiety, and anger rules. Be careful whose button you push. Don’t dismiss your feelings or they’ll come forth with a vengeance. Try keeping a journal or talk things out with a friend. The mission is to move through your emotions, which diminishes their power.

With Uranus trine the Sun, you are more willing to accept change. You know that it has to happen, and what you will examine is your tried and true beliefs. It’s time to reconfirm or refine what you’ve always believed in and align it with the new reality. With Jupiter and Saturn turning direct this month, things will begin to advance. There is less need for a review before moving forward.

It’s a great month to adjust your position, so you are in alignment with what you want to achieve. Mercury trine Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn make communication easy. If you’re in a relationship, you are positive and optimistic, but what you need is a dose of reality. If you’re single, there is opportunity all around you, but you have to make the first move.

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

Libras begin this month in opposition to or resisting the challenges in your life. It’s important to take your time and get a perspective on the issues presented before you try to fix them. Don’t bury what’s bothering you. What you deal with now makes your life easier later on. You are either a Libra who avoids confrontation or very good at negotiations – you can see both sides of an argument, which leaves you in the position of choice. Do you know your truth and what you want? It sounds easy, but for a Libra, it’s a major issue.

If you have the answer, then this month will work in your favor. Certainty allows you to embrace change. Mars won’t be helpful for a long time; it goes retrograde on the 9th and adds energy to your anger. When it squares Venus, Pluto, and Saturn, tension is high, especially when it comes to family and goals. If you have mother issues, they can reveal themselves now. Try and work through them or just step back and give yourself the space to let them go. Jupiter goes direct on the 13th, and communication improves.

The trine it makes to Mercury helps you get your ideas across. When others listen, advancing your goals is easy. Saturn goes direct on the 29th, and will soon enter Aquarius. The shift it makes in December will help you focus on establishing your authority and power.

The more you connect to you, the easier it is to get respect from others. If you’re in a relationship, it’s not going to be easy this month. Your partner is ruled by Mars, an angry planet. He or she may need space. If you’re single, it’s not a good time to compromise. Your truth is not clear when it is things will happen.

 Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

Scorpios have the reputation of being great lovers. Perhaps they’re drawn to both the power and transforming qualities of sex. And yes, you’re sexy. Whatever you love receives power from your attention. With the Sun in Virgo, friendships get emphasized. You can be a loner, primarily because you don’t’ believe in superficial relationships.

Either you connect with someone at a deep level, or it’s not worth the effort. Mars goes retrograde on the 28th and brings work issues to the fore. You may have trouble with your schedule for the next few months. Mars stirs up anger, change, and trouble for this month. Find an outlet for your frustration. Use the energy to advance your position when it comes to the work you do.

With the Sun trine Uranus, you’ll be noticed and attract opportunities because you’re out of your comfort zone. This is where your path can be found. When it comes to investments, you’ll have plenty of options. Do not be in a hurry to put your money in the right place; do your research. Listen to your gut and the facts. They work well together. Saturn goes direct on the 29th and begins its journey out of Capricorn and into Aquarius, ruler of your 4th house of the home. Saturn will give you a report on what needs to be fixed.

It may be harsh or difficult to hear, but it will be truthful. Finances should get better when Jupiter goes direct on the 17th. This is a planet that knows how to create abundance. If you’re in a relationship, it’s been going through some change. Hopefully,  new challenges have improved your life. If you’re single, you may discover there are more opportunities than you thought to meet new people. Don’t let the chaos distract you. Right now, anything is possible.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

As a Sagittarian, you feel stuck, and it’s very uncomfortable for a free spirit like you. With Jupiter, your ruler, in constant contact with both Saturn and Pluto, there is not a lot you can do to express yourself without judgment. Things advance without problems as soon as Jupiter goes direct on the 13th. The only obstacle you need to pay attention to is Mars.

This is the planet of war, and it’s looking for trouble. It goes retrograde on the 9th, releasing any pent-up anger you’ve been holding on to. It has not been easy for you to keep yourself constrained. However, getting into a fight won’t make things better. The picture becomes more challenging because Mars is square both Pluto and Saturn, two powerful planets that love being in control.

It’s not a bad thing. In fact, the more you place the focus on yourself and how you can handle all that is happening around you, the better off you’ll be. Don’t waste energy on blame; just adjust and keep moving forward. With the Full Moon in your 4th house of the home on the 2nd, the family becomes the focus. Once again, listen and stay calm. So much of what is happening can’t be fixed, but if someone feels heard, it’s often enough to dissolve many of the problems.

Saturn rules your 2nd house of finance, and when it goes direct on the 29th, things should begin to improve. Now it’s not about earning new money and more about protecting what you have. If you’re in a relationship, things are good. Communication is strong, and so are your instincts. You will know how to make your partner happy. If you’re single, it’s a great time to meet new souls, and yes, one of them may turn into someone special.

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

Capricorn rules limits and boundaries, and so it is not the most popular of the signs. However, knowing your limits is essential to success. What it insists on is that you narrow your focus, which helps you advance at a faster pace. There is nothing wrong with a little meandering if you need to discover who you are and what you want. The vital thing is to listen to yourself and understand what makes you happy.

With Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn still in your sign, you may feel empowered and held back at the same time. What is required is simple patience and the ability to be present on your path. Know what you want, do everything you can to achieve it – then let go. It will come back to you with something changed.

Repeat the process. When Saturn and Jupiter enter Aquarius at the end of the year, your finances will improve, and your focus will be on the next stage of your creative ideas. So, keep the faith. Uranus in trine to the Sun makes change less threatening and easier to embrace. Venus trine Neptune enhances career opportunities and your sense of authority over whatever you’re doing. It empowers fantasy and creativity, so don’t be afraid to leave the earth for a few moments and explore your dreams. There are many gifts within your reach at this time, just let go and allow them in.

Here is a warning from the cosmic view of September 2020. Mars goes retrograde on September 9th, making home-life challenging. Your frustrations and anger may make you hard to live with. If it’s not you, then it’s everyone around you. Saturn goes direct on the 29th, and everything begins to move. If you’re in a relationship, there may be a surprise that makes the relationship even better. If you’re single, you’ll either meet someone unexpectedly, or it won’t happen. This is not a time to make serious plans, stay spontaneous.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

Aquarians love their independence, and they are in love with love. It is essential to your being, and it gets your attention, no matter what’s going on. Loving the wrong person can restrict your freedom, so keep that in mind as you open yourself up to the arrows of cupid. With Uranus, your ruler, in Taurus and trine the Sun, relationships should be good, or you’re about to meet someone.

Mars in Aries goes retrograde on the 9th and stays there until the middle of November. Communication is strong and full of passion. It challenges you to express yourself in a truthful and direct way. Mercury trine Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn add communication skills and opportunities to the moment. Don’t be afraid to share your opinion. Neptune trine Venus helps you focus on what’s important.

Neptune has the power to go right to the heart of any matter. This month is about questioning your choices. Are you on the right path? Is this what you want? Have you been pleasing others or listening to yourself? It’s time to expand your awareness. Mars square Venus causes conflict between the sexes or just shifts your inner harmony to issues that create anxiety or tension.

Don’t let it get to you. Pluto in your 2nd house transform your earning power. If it interests you, finances can improve. Good things happen from challenges. If you’re not challenged, you don’t go inward and question your choices. Jupiter goes direct on the 13th and begins its journey into your sign. This happens along with Saturn in December – a great month for change. If you’re in a relationship, things are going well. Idealism is high and positive thinking rules. If you’re single, you may find that an obligation brings new people and possibilities. Keep yourself open, and all will be well.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

Pisces opens with the Full Moon in your opposite sign – Virgo. This occurs on the 2nd, so be prepared for challenges as the month unfolds. Opportunities are everywhere. The key is to see them. This reality requires you to step out of the past and into the chaos of the moment.

The challenge is to shift your energy and embrace the new. With Uranus, trine the Sun, relationships are going through as many changes as you are. It’s not about being comfortable. It’s about taking a risk. Venus square Mars makes getting things done nearly impossible, or not without conflict. Social events are still very challenging, and that frustrates you – you’re not always happy with your own company.

Mercury in trine to Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn make home a peaceful place. Everyone is getting along, for now. Mars, in Aries, goes retrograde on the 9th and will remain so until November. This enhances your anger and anxiety and makes it difficult to keep under control. If you have things in place, don’t be surprised if you’re forced to cope with the frustrations of others. It’s not an easy time because tension gets bottled up or released in destructive ways. With Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn in your 11th house of friendship and humanitarian causes, the truth of who you are and what’s important becomes clear.

There is nothing like a crisis to realize who your friend is. If you’re in a relationship, changes are going on, and they make the relationship difficult. Virgo rules your house of partnerships, and you’re comfortable with extremes. However, try to remember that balance is what keeps you safe. If you’re single, the cosmic views of September 2020 hold excellent possibility. It’s a great time to meet new people through friends. You will be connected through others who know you and understand who you are. Trust them.

Cosmic Views for August 2020 for Aries (March 21st – April 20th)

Anger is not an alien emotion to any Aries. However, this month it’s prominent. With Mars square Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn, the passion you’ve been repressing will find its way to the surface. Don’t become the saboteur, the person that doesn’t want to listen to what’s right for you because it requires change. And don’t act out for attention.

If you give in to that impulse, then you will live this month fighting pointless battles and getting into the way of your own goals. It’s time to dig in and know what’s important. With Mars square Mercury, the desire to avoid an argument doesn’t exist – you’re looking for a fight to relieve your inner tension. What you will learn about yourself now is the importance of self-discipline, It’s necessary for success in love and business, and it’s the key to your happiness.

The Full Moon on the 3rd, in Aquarius, helps you feel independent and reminds you that it’s how you offer your opinion that determines if anyone hears it. You’re known for being direct, but what you need to do is listen. When you see what someone else wants, then you also know the path to a resolution. Saturn stations retrograde on the 2nd and begin its journey out of Capricorn and back into Aquarius, where it will help you redefine freedom.

Venus enters Cancer on the 8th, and emotions began to rule. Neptune is also square Venus, enhancing delusion and fantasy, which may lead to wrong choices or decisions. This is a dangerous month for all Aries if you have valuable life decisions to make. Your feet are not securely on the ground because your sense of reality is distorted. If you’re in a relationship, whatever is not working will be visible. Face the truth and work it out. If you’re single, it’s not a good time to meet new people.

Taurus (April 21st – May 20th)

Taurus is excellent at putting aside any emotion that gets in the way of what they desire. This month, the passion that dominates is anger. With Mars in Aries, square Jupiter, the Moon, Neptune, and Saturn, there is not much that won’t irritate you. Instead of projecting this emotion, try owning it. Let go of self-judgment and give yourself support.

Learn from your mistakes, and you’ll turn them into building blocks. Anger is the first stage of digging up the truth. Now try and understand the real reason behind your agitation. Get to the core of your feelings, and then the emotion will not be wasted.

Life is challenging, and there’s not much you can count on for the moment, but you’ll come out ahead if you just slow down. The lesson is to be at the moment. When you are present, good things happen. The moment is all anyone has. Learn to use it in new ways. With Uranus square the Sun, new ideas and solutions present themselves to help you solve your challenges. Just be open to change. Do something different. Get out of your rut and challenge yourself.

The Full Moon in Aquarius on the 3rd is in your 10th house of career. The square it makes to Uranus opens the door to change and new solutions. Saturn goes retrograde in Capricorn on the 2nd, and the desire to repeat old patterns is strong – this is your chance to change. Learn from how it makes you feel. If you’re in a relationship, things are not secure.

You may see things you don’t like. Ignoring the truth will not help you move forward. If you’re single, it’s not a good time to start something new unless you use it as an escape.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

Gemini begins the month with your ruler, Mercury, in opposition to the Moon, Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn. Not an easy challenge under any circumstances. What you don’t want it to do is feel stuck. If what’s happening is not essential to your survival, then take a deep breath and wait until the 6th when Mercury enters Leo and forms better relationships with the other planets.

As a Gemini, you don’t slow down like other people. There is a need to move and to do anything to keep yourself interacting in the world around you. Sitting still is not an option. Quiet time leads to delving into your wounds or facing the issues that need your attention.

The more you avoid the shadow, the more stuck you feel. With four planets in Capricorn trine Uranus, change is happening with or without your consent. Stop fighting it and allow your life to evolve.  Mars in Aries, squaring the Moon, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, keep the anger close to the surface. If you don’t explode, someone else will. There is anger to cope with, and it may come from a partner or a friend, and even if it’s not directed at you, it’s still in your environment. Get out of the way. You can’t control someone else, only yourself – set your boundaries.

Venus square Neptune offers your fantasies as a safe way to escape. Remember, only truth has the power to eliminate illusions, so don’t stay too long in La La Land, it’s not healthy. The Full Moon on the 3rd, in Aquarius, in square to Uranus, creates a need to change your plans. If you’re in a relationship, it’s a bit of a mixed bag.

Your partner is both eager for change and angry that it’s being imposed on him or her. If you’re single, it’s an excellent time to meet new people. Just proceed with caution.

August 2020 Cosmic Views for Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

Cancers often appear as if they’re loners, but this is only possible if they have someone who cares, someone dedicated to their survival. They need a mothering energy to check in on them, a good heart that will put their needs before their own.

The challenge this month is concerned with communication – you need to let others know how you feel. You don’t like change, but it’s necessary, and it’s happening now regardless of your judgments or displeasure. If you want to know success, you must pay attention to what others think. There are times when compromise is the only way forward.

Find a way to do just that. Venus enters into your sign on the 8th, and harmony goes away for all the right reasons. Get out of your rut and adjust. Comfort is not always the best choice for Cancer. Mars, in Aries square four planets in Capricorn, creates an environment of anxiety and tension. Be prepared to meet angry people for no apparent reason. However, considering what’s going on around us all, it’s easy to understand that others are on edge and looking for a fight.

Anything to get rid of frustration. Be cautious. Fights can quickly get out of hand.

The Full Moon on the 3rd, in Aquarius, creates a situation you can’t avoid. Whatever you’ve been ignoring will now be in your face. Something has to give or be scrutinized with complete attention. Don’t dismiss the problem. It won’t go away. If you’re in a relationship, things are challenging. It may not even be your relationship that is the problem, but some issues must be faced, and they affect your peace of mind. If you’re single, you need your energy to take care of the moment. You will have sufficient time for love and fun in a few weeks.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

Leos have a natural strength that comes from a healthy ego. What they need is a way to balance their ego with their emotional needs. The best method to accomplish this feat is to get out of yourself. Help someone on the same path as you, share what you’ve learned.

Until you share your knowledge, it’s not truly yours. With five planets in your 6th house, you either are busy, or you’re stuck. Mars square Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter pushes you to break out of your dilemma and get moving. Open yourself up to new ideas, along with new ways of making things happen. This is a time for inventiveness.

Venus enters Cancer on the 8th, and it softens the blows of Mars by spreading love and good feelings. Uranus in your 10th house, in trine to the Moon, makes change a necessity, not a choice. Repeating the past is not an option. It’s time to rethink your goals. When Uranus stations retrograde on the 16th, you’ll have a chance to go back and pick up opportunities you may have ignored. It’s not yet too late to find a better way.

A gift for the moment is an enhanced intuition. The trine from Neptune to Mercury brings out the philosopher and poet in you.
