September 5th sees an awkward inconjunct between Mercury in Leo and Mars in Capricorn. Focused or conservative actions will be at odds with bold/creative words, and the disconnect can lead to tense conversations or ineffective efforts. This aspect was first triggered on August 21st by the Leo Sun.
Mercury will then enter Virgo, the sign that it rules, but its strength will be temporarily compromised as it makes yet another inconjunct, this time to Chiron Rx in Aries (on September 6th). The identification of flaws or solutions will not be totally effective, and helpful words might rub some people the wrong way. The Virgo Sun triggered this aspect on August 24th, so you’ll be revisiting the issue.
Grand Earth Trine
The good news is that Saturn in Capricorn stations direct on September 6th and activates a Grand Earth trine with Mercury in Virgo and Uranus Rx in Taurus (effective from September 6th to September 7th). Despite the above difficulties, this trine allows you to turn words into reality. The focus on details, upgrades and solutions can effectively integrate change into your routines. The Virgo Sun activated this trine from August 23rd to 25th, but now you’ll be putting those potentials into words and moving ahead with your goals.
On September 8th, Venus in Libra squares Mars in Capricorn. Actions will conflict with what you want, and sometimes this can indicate a hot attraction. It will certainly be motivating, but Venus in Libra does not like to be challenged, so the disruption of harmony can feel uncomfortable. And, some efforts to attain a desired goal may be too much/too serious.
Note that Venus will shift gears as she enters Scorpio on September 9th. This transit will be about what lies beneath the surface of relationships, social image and wants. Venus will station Rx Scorpio on October 5th, so get ready for a prolonged excavation of relationship and self-esteem issues.

There may be a struggle to keep this new development on a realistic track - focus on what you know and refuse to become distracted by what ifs.
