No matter where you live in the world, September is a time of transition. For those in the Northern Hemisphere, September marks the waning of the warm spring and summer seasons, bringing in a breezier fall with winter not far behind. In the Southern Hemisphere, folks are shedding the freeze of winter and entering spring with an eye toward summer, a lighter time of growth and rejuvenation. September is that point of change.

Sun Number 1
September 2016 is 1 Personal Month in a 1 Personal Year for those with a Sun Number 1. You experience an increase in inner strength, independence and individuality, and your health should improve as well. You are more emotionally stable and ready to aggressively pursue your goals this month. This is also the time to bring about practical changes that you have long contemplated as essential to your health and happiness. This combination of numbers (1 Month, 1 Year) inspires smokers to quit, over-eaters to modify their diets, health abusers to reform. It can be, unmistakably, the dawn of a new era in your life.
If single, you may encounter someone during the second part of this month, or the beginning of next, who may well become a permanent part of your life.
Sun Number 2
For those with a Sun Number 2, September 2016 is a 2 Personal Month in a 2 Personal Year. The number 11 -- referred to in Numerology as a Master number, and therefore highly charged, sensitive and intuitive -- is also prominent in your life now. You are extremely perceptive. Dreams are full of insight, and seemingly irrational and creative ideas should be examined seriously. Your most powerful asset right now is your inner antenna that is picking up vibrations that escape others.
Your relationship with co-workers is fragile this month, but this is due largely to your enhanced sensitivity. Don't take your emotions too seriously. Increased sensitivity magnifies and exaggerates emotions. If you fixate too much on them, you'll do yourself a disservice. Overlook slights and let things pass without retort. People will come around.
Romance is still strong this month, but you must remain realistic. Last month's excitement and infatuation has given rise to self-examination. As with co-workers, long-term relationships and friendships are also fragile right now. Again, be skeptical of your emotions; it's quite possible that you are making mountains out of mole hills. Cooperation, tact, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness are the keywords to make this month pleasant and successful.
Sun Number 3
September 2016 is a 3 Personal Month in a 3 Personal Year for those with a Sun Number 3. Your creativity is at an all-time high now. You find solutions and discover new ways to improve old methods. You are communicative and express yourself well.
You may have a strong urge to write to old friends now that you haven't seen in some time. This need to re-establish relationships with people may even surprise you. At work, you discover that it is easy to reach others and influence the way they feel about themselves and their work. You uplift them and are rewarded with gratitude and support. This is a time to be social, easy-going and optimistic.

Sun Number 4
For those with a Sun Number 4, September 2016 is a 4 Personal Month in a 4 Personal Year. Six months or a year from now, you will likely look back at this month and realize that in some way it represented a turning point on your path to success. However, you may feel frustrated during this month and wonder why everything is moving so slowly. In a way, it seems that life has you in a straight jacket, but in fact you are being protected from yourself.
The emphasis is on the irritating and seemingly unnecessarily details now. You are forced to deal with things you consider a waste of time. These loose ends can no longer be ignored, but you feel frustrated by the limitations of time and the massive amount of work. The situation is, in fact, two-sided: one side is effort, the other reward. You are being prepared to take full advantage of a string of opportunities that will begin next month, and will continue all next year. The challenge for you is to keep up. For that reason, you must finish the work in front of you now to make room for the opportunities to come.
Meanwhile, guard your health, especially against the effects of stress and frustration. You would do well to eat healthy foods regularly. Go to bed early; read to widen your view and escape. Do not dwell on the negative. Leave affairs of the heart to themselves for a while, until this intense period passes. Late this month, you should start to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but looking back you will be grateful and relieved that you took on this process of reorganizing the basics in both your work and your personal life.
Sun Number 5
For those with a Sun Number 5, September 2016 is a 5 Personal Month in a 5 Personal Year. The hectic pace of last month continues, however, the nature of activities is quite different. You are challenged to keep up with events and influences that, at times, appear out of your control. If you can be flexible and adaptable, you will cruise through this month comfortably and successfully. Let go of old plans, expectations and concepts, or else stress may take a physical toll. If you are willing to take the changes in stride and go with the flow, you will find yourself in a better position in your career as well as your personal life by the end of this month.
This is an adventurous, dynamic and progressive time, with less focus on details and routine matters. Social events and romantic adventures highlight the month. "Adventure" is the operative word: few romances that begin during this time have the emotional depth and substance needed to survive the test of time. However, relationships begun now still have much to teach you about life and love, so be open to all the possibilities. Be warned, however.
You may have a tendency to over-indulge your senses this month. Moderation is wisdom. Your health may cause you some concern now. In most cases, this is the body reacting to changes that have taken place during the course of this year and are only temporary. If problems persist, seek the advice of health counselor or physician.
Sun Number 6
September 2016 is a 6 Personal Month in a 6 Personal Year for those with a Sun Number 6. This month forces you to deal with issues of responsibility and loyalty. Devote your time and energy to the needs of family and community; become involved in some sort of activity that will benefit others financially. You will, and should be, concerned less with your own financial affairs than with those involving others.
Be selfless and generous in all areas of your life; this month is a time to forgive and heal. You are highly aware of your bond with the people you love, as well as with neighbors and co-workers now. Legal affairs you might be involved in come to the foreground. Financially, September has the potential to be very good, yet romance is shaky. Choose your words well and follow up on promises. Don't forget birthdays.
Sun Number 7
For those with a Sun Number 7, September 2016 is a 7 Personal Month in a 7 Personal Year. Now, more than ever, spiritual growth and self-discovery are highlighted. If you have not been fully aware of this inner search during part of this year, there is no escaping it this month. Dreams will be intense and you won't be able to shake them when you wake up. You will find yourself staring into space more often than usual. You are withdrawing and may experience some loneliness as a result. You are questioning a lot of things that you have been taking for granted. You think about your life and the direction it is taking. The mysteries of life and death may occupy your mind.
You are mentally sharp and flexible now, and you easily keep up with any demands that come your way. Your career, finances, and other mundane aspects of life occupy a smaller place in your life this month. Without avoiding your duties, you can let these areas take care of themselves until early next month.
Your friends and family are less demanding now as well, but romantic ties can be surprisingly strong. You have a real desire to share your innermost feelings with the person you are attracted to, revealing a newer, intimate side of yourself.
Sun Number 8
September 2016 is an 8 Personal Month in an 8 Personal Year for those with a Sun Number 8. This is a month with great potential for your career and finances -- especially to increase your finances long-term. It's time to be aggressive and outspoken -- your authority is needed and you will have to apply yourself 100%.
However, there is also another side to this month. You may feel that you have reached the pinnacle of your career, or that work and other areas of your life have become dull and monotonous. You may feel you need a break. You are approaching a time of deep inner change. Several times during your life you have reached a point at which you need to break out of a cocoon. All evolution is gradual, but periodically interrupted by sudden bursts of growth, or change. You are probably at a stage in your life when you feel ready for such a change. However, you are not clear about the true nature of this change and, while you may feel inspired to force some practical changes now, you should approach this with care. Avoid impulsive decisions, as well as any contractual arrangement that would tie you down for a long time. You need to rely on your own strength and feel confident that you have a certain amount of control over your own future. You should relax and let things develop at their own pace now. Social events are highly favorable and there will be ample opportunity for mixing and mingling.
Sun Number 9
For those with a Sun Number 9, September 2016 is a 9 Personal Month in a 9 Personal Year. Now your desire for change reaches a climax. You are taking steps to implement changes you have been considering for some time. Nothing is stable right now, but that should not worry you. You are making progress in hidden ways. You may feel insecure about the future, but you rightly know that these changes have to be made. There is a lot of adjusting that has to be done, not only for you, but also for the people close to you. More than at any other time this year, you let go of the old and prepare for the new. This takes place in every area of your life; spiritual, emotional and material.
This is not a month to make impulsive decisions, and starting anything new should be postponed until very late this month or next month. A disappointment in romance is possible this month, but will clear the air for future engagements.
