MONTH OF September
Happy birthday season to YOU! The Sun is in Virgo until September 22, rebooting your solar power. Even better? Energizer Mars is also here until September 14, cranking up your confidence and charisma. The September 6 Virgo new moon kicks off your personal New Year, with a jolt of electrifying energy from changemaker Uranus thrown in. Go big and think out of the box when you envision those birthday season wishes!
While much of the month is a solo stint, make time for a special plus-one at the Pisces full moon on September 20. A relationship could turn official (or head in a new direction) under these transitional beams, which spotlight your closest commitments. When Libra season and the balancing fall equinox arrive on September 22, you’ll start to get more grounded and focused on a concrete path.
But no need to commit to anything before you’re ready. All five of the slow-moving outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) are all still in powered-down retrograde this month. Pull back a bit and take a bird’s-eye view of things, especially your well-being and finances. When Mercury turns retrograde in your money sector from September 27 to October 18, you’ll definitely want to hold off on key decisions until later next month. Meantime, work on getting things on track behind the scenes!
The Sun is in Virgo until September 22
As the Sun embarks on its annual trip through your sign, your “solar return” wishes get especially charged-up. Why not make ambitious ones? Courageous Mars is in Virgo until September 14, so if you’re a Virgo born on or before that date, go big and bold when you envision your next trip around the Sun. Put a few healthy resolutions in the mix as you blow out the candles on your (vegan?) cake. With lucky Jupiter and structured Saturn in Aquarius and your wellness and analytical zone for the rest of the year, you can make great strides toward getting healthy, wealthy and wise.
Mars is busy in the first week of September
Activator Mars is in your sign for the first half of September, and it’s making two key connections in the first week of the month. Consider this your cue to make a bold and decisive move, especially around a solar initiative. Focus on that task or person that keeps demanding your attention, even if it feels a little irritating.
On September 2, Mars will face off in an opposition with foggy Neptune in your partnership zone. You’re eager to dive into a personal project that you’ve been putting off, but beware the pull of a shiny distraction. Seductive Neptune in your interpersonal house can easily lure you off-track and into someone else’s orbit, whether you help them with their needs instead of accomplishing your mission or just get pulled into pleasurable procrastination. Stay focused, even if the most enchanting creature interrupts. Make plans for later so you have something to look forward to—a reward for your devotion!
September 6 is NOT the day to play it cool. Lusty Mars is in your sign, and it’s making an exact connection to Pluto in your passionate fifth house. Throw caution (and perhaps a few articles of clothing) to the wind and let the chips fall where they may! Couples will enjoy staying in tonight, perhaps engaging in some sexy game-playing. Single? Take a risk. Stepping out of character could lead to an encounter with someone you’d never meet otherwise.
The September 6 Virgo new moon marks your personal New Year
The September 6 Virgo new moon marks your personal New Year, meaning: Don’t wait until December 31 to start plotting your big moves. Set intentions for what you’d like to personally accomplish in the next six months (set the Virgo full moon on March 18, 2022, as your target date)—and write them down to give them extra mojo. With the new moon forming an exact trine to changemaker Uranus in your sector of personal growth, set some bucket-list plans into motion. Sign up for a life-changing workshop. Invest in a piece of equipment that will make everything more efficient. Make (safe) travel plans to invite more novelty into your world, even if it’s a road trip and an Airbnb.
Mars enters Libra on September 14, activating your money house
In the second half of the month, your bottom line gets a boost from energizer Mars, which is making its biennial blaze through Libra and your chart’s financial district from September 14 to October 30. As the red planet revs up your revenue, a project or plan could heat up fast.
Mars hastens the pace—and, full disclosure, this planet can pump up your stress levels. There may be long hours and short deadlines at work. But prioritize the opportunities that hold out the greatest promise of a payoff that’ll make the intensity worthwhile. If you’ve been angsting over money, don’t get upset—get busy! Necessity might be the mother of invention, but warrior Mars is its hyper-productive co-parent. Focus on the solution, not the problem—and we REALLY mean that, Virgo. Instead of letting nerves and fear overtake you, consciously channel any anxious energy into hustling.
Side note: Mars is in “detriment” when it travels through Libra, which is a challenged position. After all, Mars rules war, and Libra, peace. Find the happy medium between competitiveness and compassion.
The Pisces full moon on September 20 spotlights partnerships
Dynamic duos are the top order of business this September 20 as the annual full moon lands in Pisces and your seventh house of partnerships. These moonbeams sound the call for honest dialogue with the most important people in your orbit. A percolating partnership, either professional or romantic, could reach official status. Or you might decide to go in a different direction if a commitment’s not working out as you’d hoped. This could be a decisive day for a contract signing or negotiation. Prepare your most salient points so you’re ready to ink your name—especially since Mercury will turn retrograde in a week, which could introduce delays or red tape if you wait much longer. For couples, Pisces’ enchanting influence could bring an engagement or a sweet day to renew your vows.
Libra season starts September 22
You’re ready to roll up your own silk-lined sleeves starting September 22, when the Sun marches into Libra and your second house of work, money and security. After a hyperkinetic Virgo season, it’s time to prioritize—and build! Start fashioning your big ideas into something tangible and potentially profitable. With cosmic catalyst Mars in Libra the entire season, you can shatter records and break through barriers if you really focus. Eliminate distractions and keep your eyes on the prize!
Mercury turns retrograde in Libra on September 27
Fuzzy about your finances? Get ready to bring back some clarity. Your ruler, Mercury, the planet of commclass=”body-el-link standard-body-el-link” unication, technology and travel, turns retrograde in Libra and your money zone. Keep tabs on your funds between September 27 and October 18. Conflict could erupt with coworkers and clients, likely over a silly misunderstanding. Make sure everyone has crystal-clear instructions. Back up all your work-related files and strengthen passwords, especially on any online banking or payment sites and apps. Got an important meeting or interview scheduled? Reconfirm the time, date and details to avoid any Mercury mischief!
You’ve got the It factor, so put it to use! Until September 14, confident and charismatic Mars is in Virgo, turning up your magnetism to peak levels. Without trying you’ll attract attention and collect quite a few admirers. This has been going on since July 29, so if you’ve been having your version of “hot-girl summer,” those potent powers will extend until a week before the fall equinox.
Meantime, love planet Venus is promenading through Libra and your second house of finances and stability until September 10. For most Virgos, security is an undeniably sexy quality in a mate or date. You’ll be attracted to grounded people who at other points in your life might have seemed “boring.” Perish the thought!
On September 14, right after Venus departs Libra, Mars blazes in, amplifying this energy even more. Enjoy getting dressed up and going on luxurious dates and engaging in other kinds of upscale romancing. Since this sector rules income and how you earn it, sparks could fly with a coworker or someone you meet through a work-related event. Couples should have “the” talk about money: This is an auspicious time to work out any tension around that touchy subject.
Mars is here all month (and stays until November 19), heating up the passion and, simultaneously, money or security issues. It may be hard to distinguish between legit fears and unfounded anxiety. You may need to work with a therapist or financial pro to help you sort through the layers of emotions. If your partner shares your concerns, they are NOT the person to discuss this with. You’ll only trigger each other’s nerves, which won’t help things one iota!
Luckily, Venus will help offset the tension. On September 10, the sensual siren enters Scorpio and your social, experimental third house, staying until October 7. If things have grown a bit stagnant or you (or your mate) have gotten indulgent, mix it up! Creatrix Venus in this sector draws you out of any ruts and will leave you yearning for variety. Dating? Keep it casual by trying fun activities at local spots or introducing new conversation topics. Never underestimate the power of a little novelty and levity to bring the sparkle back.
With mojo-boosting Mars in your sign for the first half of the month, and then in Libra and your money zone from September 14 to October 30, the next two months are yours to crush it, Virgo. Mars only visits each sign every couple years, so don’t squander the opportunity to amplify your income and spread the word about your projects. The squeaky wheel gets the premium-grade oil now. Breathe through any discomfort around self-promotion and let the world know what you’re up to now! The September 6 Virgo new moon is an amazing day for a debut, especially for a project that involves entrepreneurship, higher education or writing. As much as your indie spirit is ablaze though, you’ll go even farther with a powerful plus-one. The Pisces moon on September 20 could bring just the partner you’re looking for, or the motivation to seal a deal. Just do it fast before Mercury turns retrograde on September 27, kicking off an inauspicious three-week period for signing contracts.
