Aries ♈ October 2020 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


While this is an exciting, vibrant and broad reaching month, with all 12 areas of your chart active during at least some part or all of the month, the main focus for you is on Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos but also your ruling planet. Mars returned to Aries for what should have been a six week return to get your new Mars cycle off the ground at the end of June. The time Mars spends back in Aries is a chance to push the ‘reset’ button and to launch new quests, journeys, projects or whatever it is that speaks to your passions, drive, warrior and competitive spirit. However, over two months later Mars is still here and on 10th September he will turn retrograde, something that will keep him here for the rest of the year.

There is no way that you can maintain Mars’ breakneck pace and constant need for action for months at a time, with his retrograde turn a chance to pull back but also to return to projects you may have started or anything you may have glossed over in the past. Usually you get just one shot at things but this time you get to retrace your steps and will do for two months. Meanwhile, while Mars is turning retrograde some of the planets that have been in retrograde motion for months are waking up and are ready to start coming out of hibernation. Two planets will turn direct this month and they are both in your career sector and the timing couldn’t be better.

The first to turn direct is Jupiter, with the planet of luck and expansion not only ending his review phase on 13th September but 10 days before the Sun is due to leave your work sector. With Saturn turning direct in your career sector on 29th September but Uranus in his first full month in retrograde motion in your income sector, this should be a good month across the income, work and career fronts but with an interplay between the past, present and future. Meanwhile, romantic and relationship both get a boost on 6th September with Venus, the planet of love returning to your romantic sector and Mercury, the planet of communication to your relationship sector within hours of each other.

LoveAries September 2020 Love Horoscope

In terms of romantic and relationship matters, September is usually a transition month for you. The Sun will always leave your romantic sector three weeks into August but won’t return to your relationship sector until three weeks into September, with exactly a month between the two each year. However, while the Sun returns to the same part of your chart at the same time every year Venus and Mercury, the planets of love and communication travel close but not always to the same tight schedule. In other words, Venus and Mercury can return before, during or after the Sun moves through and as there is only a month from the Sun’s departure from your romantic sector and return to your relationship sector, often they close that gap.

That is the case this year with Venus, the planet of love returning to your romantic sector on 6th September, just 12 hours after Mercury returns to your relationship sector. This means there will be a crossover, making this an especially good month on both the romantic and relationship fronts. When Venus, the planet of love leaves your romantic sector early next month, apart from the Moon’s monthly visits there will be no planetary activity here until next year. This makes this a month to embrace the spirit of romance, even when first Mercury and then the Sun put the focus on your relationships.

Venus will return to fire up the romantic flame as Mercury returns to begin what will be a long campaign to get the communication lines open on the relationship front. Yes, Mercury will leave on 27th September and the planet of communication will only spend three weeks in your relationship sector, but he will retrograde back in next month to give the communication lines additional support. Mercury is here when the asteroid Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships finally leaves your relationship sector on 20th September and when the Sun returns, turning the solar spotlight onto your relationships on 23rd September.

MoneyAries September 2020 Money Horoscope

Even the Moon is helping to keep both sides of the financial fence not only happy but away from each other, making sure that it is not intruding on the points in the month when each side is able to get more attention. To begin with, that means having a chance to focus on and adjust to Uranus’ first full month in retrograde motion in your income sector. Uranus is getting a lot of support from Mercury, until leaving your work sector on 6th September and from the Sun until leaving on 23rd September. With the planets in your career sector just coming out of their retrograde phases this month there is an overlap.

This means that at the same time that the Sun is opening new doors on the job front the doors are also open to the past, second chances and untapped professional and income potential. The Moon will make its monthly visit to your income sector from 6th September to 8th September, right in the middle of the most concentrated point in the month across the income, work and career fronts. At this point there isn’t even a hint of planetary activity on the other side of the financial fence, making this all about money coming in and untapped income potential in particular.

It is not until the asteroid Juno returns to your financial sector on 20th September that, apart from the Moon’s monthly visits there has been any real focus on the other side of the financial fence this year. This will be backed up by Mercury’s return on 27th September, giving you the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game and around your financial situation and money matters. The Moon will make its monthly visit to your financial sector from 20th September to 22nd September, returning on the same day as Juno. This will fuel your financial instincts and imagination just as there is a chance to focus more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have. The Moon has chosen the perfect points in the month to return to your income and financial sectors.

CareerAries September 2020 Career Horoscope

The focus is always on work and job matters at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of September in your work sector, turning the solar spotlight onto your work situation, job matters and options. Yet while this has always and will always be the case every year is different, either because of what else is happening on the job front at the time or the other areas of your chart that impact that, notably on the income and career fronts. This is what makes September such a potentially game changing month across the income, work and career fronts, with everything coming together at the right time.

The Sun is in your work sector until 23rd September and while this will leave it empty, Venus will return early next month in order to bring things home. From Mercury’s return on 20th August to Venus’ eventual departure on 28th October, your work sector is only active for just over two months but they are the most critical two months of this professional year. It is all because of timing, with Jupiter’s direct turn in your career sector on 13th September the point where the planets there start coming out of hibernation. The Sun will be gone from your work sector by the time Saturn turns direct in your career sector on 29th September but with Venus returning four days later, she will swing in to support this.

Venus will return on 3rd October and with Pluto, the last of the three planets in retrograde motion in your career sector at the start of September turning direct on 5th October, she will play a critical role in the resurgence next month. As the planets in your career sector turn direct they will be slow to get up to speed, with the planetary activity on the job front able to act as a crutch until they can take over. This means that when Venus leaves your work sector at the end of next month the planets in your career sector are likely to return the favour, giving work and job matters a leg up for the rest of the year. Mercury will leave your work sector on 6th September but not before allowing you to begin the month with your head in the game and your feet on the ground.
