September Monthly Horoscope
September begins intensely with the oversensitive, Pisces Full Moon which occurs on September 1st at 10° 10:21pm PST and on the 2nd at 6:21am UK time. The opposition of the sun to the moon on the Virgo Pisces axis creates a tension between logic, scrutiny and meticulousness vs expansion of the intangible and the eradication of the boxes within our psyche’s that keep us constrained.
Both Venus and Mercury change signs on September 6th. With Mercury in Libra you will have more of a well-balanced, honest and refined mind. You will less inclined to study or educate yourself generally. It will reduce some of the intellectual focus and bring our awareness to our communication and balance within ourselves and and our personal relationships. However, when pushed, you are well-capable of much hard work and success in this.
Venus moves the same day into Leo where we can be outgoing, affectionate, constant, ardent, passionate and warm-hearted romantic nature. Love is magnificent and grand. We take pride in love, and we are generous with our money as well. You tend to shower extravagant gifts on the object of your affections, often throwing lavish parties just to impress. We feed on attention, acknowledgement, validation, and adoration. Venus in Leo loves to be adored, pampered, and admired.
The biggest influence this month could be Mars Retrograde which will happen on the September 9th. Tensions and frustrations could mount especially with Mars creating intense square aspects to Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn whilst moving backwards. As with all retrogrades, this period calls for introspection as we are being asked to slow down and re-assess the projects we are currently taking action on, the way we assert ourselves and how we achieve our goals. The sharp clarity of Mars in Aries will become a bit confusing and ambiguous, leading to uncertainty and a drop in confidence as we start to hesitate and second-guess ourselves and our intuition.
The Virgo moon occurs on September 17th. This earth sign New Moon reminds us that, as important as our minds are, if we neglect our bodies they tend to suffer for it and soon enough will let us know. When we nurture one part of the system, we nurture the other and thus allow universal assistance. If we are ailing, then now is the time to make adjustments, under the dual lights of the Sun and Moon in wisdom-based Virgo. Beginnings and reboots are often easier under a New Moon.
Libra season begins on September 22nd. Libra rules relationships with others as mirrors of ourselves. Meeting others halfway, compromise, and negotiation come under the rule of Libra. The focus is now on balance–finding balance and harmony through relationships with others and through art. Libra is the sign of the peacemaker. However, life is not always peaceful with Libra in its attempt to restore balance. Decision-making can be more challenging.
Mercury in Scorpio occurs on September 27th. Scorpio seeks truths in all that is hidden and undercover. We tend to probe, observe, and focus our thoughts under this influence. Looking for motivations–the more deeply buried the better–satisfies an intellectual need now..
