Sagittarius Monthly Horoscope

MONTH OF September

Time to make some moves, Sagittarius! The Sun is in Virgo until September 22, making its annual rounds through your tenth house of career and success. This is always a productive and prosperous time, but the pace is quickened by the presence of activator Mars, who’s also in Virgo until September 14. 


The red planet only visits here every two years, and not always in sync with the Sun. Translation: Plug into this solar-powered and assertive energy and you could make huge professional strides. Don’t be afraid to self-promote or throw your hat into the ring for a promotion. The Virgo new moon on September 6 could bring exciting career news or an opportunity that unfolds between now and March 2022.


As excited as you are, Sagittarius, things could still take a minute to gel—even if the other party is equally jazzed. That’s because all five of the slow-moving outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) are retrograde this month, which could mean that progress happens at a glacial pace. With Mercury, the planet of communication, technology and contracts, turning retrograde from September 27 to October 18, you may have second thoughts or have to deal with a few plot twists and schedule reconfigurations. 


Mercury is retrograde in Libra and your teamwork sector, indicating that you’ll be at the mercy of other people’s schedules (and even their whims), so there could be lots of coordinating to do. With the Sun also in Libra from September 22 on, and Mars here from September 14 to October 30, get ready to make quick decisions but also to be a pro-level team player. Opt for democracy over dictatorship if you’re the one in charge—even if you have to grit your teeth to do it. By November, it will be MUCH smoother sailing and you can make your splashy debuts then.



The Sun is in Virgo until September 22

Get down to business, Sagittarius! The stars place you in a special boom cycle this month that can take your ambitious goals to new heights. Until September 22, the Sun is making its annual trek through Virgo and your status-driven tenth house, heating up your career and setting your sights on a big accomplishment. As el Sol blazes across the very top of your chart, it’s a peak moment to rise into a leadership role or rub padded shoulders with the A-listers in your industry. Use this time to map out your responsibilities and prioritize. Less distraction and multitasking, more focus on a single mission. It may not be your usual style (you love to have a million irons in the fire), but the discipline you use now will pay dividends later.


Mars is busy in the first week of September

With cosmic catalyzer Mars in Virgo and your ambitious tenth house until September 14, you’re ready to tackle your loftiest goals. And in the first few days of September, the red planet makes a couple of key contacts that could impact your professional path.


On September 2, watch out for a tricky opposition between Mars and guilt-tripping Neptune in your home and family zone. Personal life matters could distract you from your mission. Rather than fight celestial City Hall, you might just want to surrender to it and devote this day to quality time with loved ones. That said, you’ll probably have to attend to some business matters, so let your nearest and dearest know that there will be a few blocks of time for distraction-free productivity. Share this same info with your colleagues and clients—and move any non-essential meeting to another day. Make sure you’re not avoiding your emotions by staying busy.


A resourceful September 6 trine between unstoppable Mars in your career corner and deep-digging Pluto in your money zone can help you hit paydirt. Look beyond the obvious: Are there any old connections worth revisiting that might lead to new collaborations? Or is there an idea that you never got around to—one that may be more relevant now than ever? Take a chance, Archer, and aim your arrows skyward!


The September 6 Virgo new moon charges up your career

September 9 marks a pivotal professional moment as the year’s only Virgo new moon opens a major professional chapter that will unfold between now and early 2022. Even better? This new moon will form an exact trine to innovative Uranus in your sixth house of employees, processes and well-being. You could find the dream assistant or get Team Archer running like a well-oiled machine. Delegate some parts of your mission to a capable specialist and you could accomplish twice as much in half the time. There’s no Olympic medal for doing it all yourself, Sag, especially if you burn out or bottleneck the process! Implement some helpful apps AND organize the troops for a shared victory. Where would you like to be by the March 2022 Virgo FULL moon? Set your sights on a lofty goal!


Mars enters Libra on September 14, revving up teamwork

Put some steam into your team! On September 14, revved-up Mars begins a biennial visit to Libra, heating up your networks and sparking synergies wherever you go. With the red planet here until October 30, you’ll go so much farther when you collaborate.


Caveat: Mars can add excitement and stress in equal doses, and you may go into “people overload” at moments, having almost too much of a good thing. Teamwork does indeed make the dream work this month, but you need to have some literal dreams (as in, a good night’s sleep!) to keep your energy levels up. There could be a zillion events, conference calls, video chats and parties to RSVP to, so choose selectively. And be sure to log off those social media sites whenever possible, even if your posts keep going viral!


Mars is in “detriment”—a weakened position—in Libra. After all, the planet of war isn’t totally comfortable in the sign of peace. It’s all too easy to overestimate what you can handle (a Sagittarius issue by nature). Better to underpromise and overdeliver than the reverse. Manage people’s expectations and be sure to delegate! With Mars in this team-centric zone, you could have a power posse of capable collaborators ready to pitch in. Do your part by giving them clear instructions and regular checkpoints…then letting go and trusting them to implement and produce your vision.


The Pisces full moon on September 20 spotlights home and family

Take one more break from your relentless work ethic and schedule! On September 20, a full moon ripens in Pisces and your domestic, emotional fourth house. If there’s one day this month that you SHOULD prioritize your loved ones or take a timeout for self-care, this is it. You’ve been burning multiple candles at both ends, and it’s time for a nurturing escape. Stop and replenish! These illuminating moonbeams could reveal deeper feelings you’ve brushed aside, helping you find the words to express some heartfelt sentiment. A move or change to your home is possible near this date. The fourth house rules female relatives, mothers in particular, so events surrounding a maternal figure could come into the open. There could also be news related to a child or a pregnancy.


Libra season starts September 22

You don’t have to do it all alone! On September 22, the Sun enters Libra and your eleventh house of group activity, sounding the call for collaboration. For the next four weeks, your net worth is in your network, so pay special mind to the company you keep. This is a powerful time for networking, and, since the futuristic eleventh house rules technology, you could launch an online venture or viral piece of content. With Mercury turning retrograde in less than a week, start paging through your mental contact list for people from your past who could be helpful for a current project.


Mercury is retrograde in Libra on September 27

Uh-oh! Collabs that were going so swimmingly could hit choppy waters as the month closes out. Trickster Mercury—the planet of communication, technology and travel—turns retrograde in Libra from September 27 until October 18. With Mercury serving up a double dose of mayhem around all things social, you’ll need to tread carefully in your interactions, both online and IRL. Been craving a little more offline time? Start your digital detox now. Need space from a friend whose hysterics have become exhausting? Use the retrograde to reconnect with old contacts and let this draining dynamic die down. Since Mercury retrograde can cause electronic data and devices to go up in smoke, be sure to back up all your most important files early in the month.



With the cosmic lovebirds, Venus and Mars, both traveling through Libra and your social eleventh house, you’ll be in lively spirits this month. Romantic Venus is here until September 10, so make the most of this “more’s the merrier” energy by hanging out with mutual friends and easing up on any lingering, heavy relationship issues. Single Sags, keep things light and hold off on fervent soulmate searches. Funny enough, loosening your grip can actually change the energy, drawing in that person when you aren’t even looking for them.


Shortly after Venus departs, Mars takes up residence in Libra from September 14 to October 30. Independence is sexier than ever, as is having a common purpose. Volunteer as a team to rekindle your shared values. Single? You could meet someone intriguing through mutual friends or a community effort, especially one for a cause. This realm also rules technology, so a well-timed right swipe might be a game-changer. But pour a little heart—and genuine optimism—into the search!


While Mars keeps things social and lively, Venus has another agenda as the month wears on. From September 10 until October 7, Venus slinks through intensifying Scorpio and your internally focused twelfth house. Give yourself ample downtime to recover from all the socializing and volunteer work. When you’re secure in your private bubble, go ahead and indulge some sweet fantasies, alone or with bae. Unattached? Stay on guard for a steamy attraction to someone who’s a bit mysterious and hard to figure out. Sexy and alluring, no doubt. But honestly, Archer, do you really need more drama or complications in your life? We all know the answer to that one…



September could be one of the luckiest career months of 2021 for you, if not THE luckiest! With the Sun, Mars AND a new moon in Virgo powering up your tenth house of success, you’re primed for professional victories and fresh opportunity, especially in the first half of September. Fortune favors the bold, and it’s a good thing most Sagittarians have the courage to advocate for themselves. But in case you need a boost, the skies will fill your reserve tanks with can-do energy and confidence. Lean on your team and recruit a few new collaborators in the second half of September. Be sure to back up all your most important documents, data and devices before Mercury turns retrograde for three weeks on September 27.
