Happy September, everyone! This month marks the end of a very powerful summer. September 17 to October 9, we will move into a Mercury retrograde in the sign of Libra, so mark your calendars! Mercury retrogrades are popularly known as the time when all things technology-and communication-related go a bit haywire, and this can be true! Really retrograde cycles offer us a time to disconnect from everything we rely so heavily upon and look within a bit, so they do serve a larger purpose to our overall well-being. The sun moves into Virgo this month, highlighting for all of us at large the way we work and how we take care of ourselves, our routines, and one another.
Read on to see what the cosmos have to uniquely offer your sign this month.
Hi, Aquarius! This month highlights friendships, goals, visions, and sociability for you. First and foremost, spend time with people closest to you, especially if you’ve been a little too busy lately. Secondly, bigger vision for your life and goal setting are great pastimes this month. Ever tried visualization meditations or courses on creative visualization? As an Aquarius, it’s definitely not outside of your realm to think big and all-encompassing. When you’re not planning how to conquer your life and make the world a better place, make sure to visit your favorite spot for a wine night with friends. You’ll seek a balance between introspection and sociability this month. Enjoy, Aquarius!
Hi, Aries, and happy September! This month we focus on the deeper aspects of you. I know you don’t always love the slower, introverted cycles that life sometimes offers you. Just know that September is a great time to look within. Meditation, dream analysis, journaling, yoga, and alone time in nature are all excellent activities to engage in. Been wondering about an astrology or psychic reading? Go to someone you trust, and be open to new insights about who you are and where you are going. Insights from the mystical are highlighted in a transit like this. The treasure you can uncover by choosing to be with yourself and take it easy can work wonders for your well-being and vitality. Enjoy the month, Aries!
Hi, Cancer! Happy September. You are right at home with yourself this month, as this is an excellent time for you to nest and rest as we move into fall. Taking care of yourself and all matters of your home are highlighted here. Home projects need tending to? Personal care? I know I have said this before, but you often like to take care of everybody else, making yourself secondary. This month let’s switch that around: Take care of yourself first and you’ll be more readily available to offer your energy to others. As far as the home front is concerned, take extra care of your space. Light your favorite candles, water your plants, buy yourself beautiful new sheets, the works. Enjoy, Cancer!
Hey, Capricorn—happy September! This month, career and the upward climb to success are especially highlighted for you, which I know you are right at home in. What are your tangible goals this month? Any particular benchmarks for September you’d like to hit? These can be with work, financial goals, new projects, or anything that champions your upward movement in the world. As a Capricorn, moving upward on the slow, steady climb is your specialty, and you inspire others with your commitment and agility in your affairs. Pay attention throughout the month to the new goals you have set, and monitor your progress. Enjoy!
Hey, Gemini! This month is fascinating for you as we highlight two areas of interest: the way you handle your finances and the way you communicate. On the financial front, is there any way in which you can take control in some way? Are you looking to make more money or manage what you have? Do you feel confident speaking about finances, or do you need to speak up? Time for a raise? These are all great areas of interest to take a look at this month. You are a Gemini, so communication is your strong suit. This month should be a busy time for you! Your planet goes retrograde September 17, but not to worry! Retrograde periods are often times to slow down a bit and look within—perhaps to explore the topics I highlighted above. Enjoy!
Hi, Leo! As if your birthday month wasn’t already fun enough, the party continues. September highlights fun, romance, children, and hobbies for you. I hope you feel really inspired creatively and emotionally. You are often amazing at self-expression and being the center of attention, so share your good energy with those around you. Know someone who is going through a hard time? Reach out and offer your ear. Smile to a passing stranger or the cashier at your local market. Leos are vital, heart-centered people, and the world often needs your optimism and love now more than ever. September could really be a time where all your powerful energy really inspires and helps those around you. Share the wealth. ;) Enjoy, Leo!
Hi, Libra! This month is a great time to get organized, focus on your skills, and take great care of your body. Mercury, the planet of communication, is traveling through your sign and will be retrograding in your sign on September 17. No worries at all! What this means is perhaps take an inventory this month of what is working for you in your life and what isn’t. This can especially revolve around the subjects of efficiency, health, your work, and your routines. Take a look at your year, from January 2015 to present. This is an awesome practice as you can really take inventory and see what you’d like to change or what is really working for you. Your introspection will be well rewarded. Enjoy the month, Libra!
Hey, Pisces! September finds you right at home with yourself as your sign makes a transit through the depths of self-reflection and the mystical. Retreat and regeneration are two great ways to describe the next month for you. Take some time, even though I know life is busy, to just be. Meditation, yoga, self-reflection through journaling, listening to your dreams, etc. are all great for you this month, Pisces. If you’ve been feeling run down, have a little gentle self-discipline to just be with yourself and see how you can best take care of you! This transit always gives way to amazing new energy levels and breakthroughs. Have a great month, Pisces!
Hi, Sagittarius! What an interesting and amazing month for you as the cosmos highlight intimacy and higher learning. Sound like a fascinating combo? It is. A transit traversing the energy of sex and intimacy is just that—you may find yourself extra randy or craving deeper connection, sexually or simply relationally. Make the time this month to take care of yourself in this way; human beings need connection, whether physical or mental/intellectual. The higher-learning theme for you this month means you seek mental stimulation and expansion, perhaps a class on something you have found interesting, or mind-opening conversation with someone you find attractive. :) Enjoy the unique energy this month, Sagittarius!
Hi, Scorpio, and happy September to you! This may be a great month for you to enjoy your personal, one-to-one relationships. In a relationship? Show extra care and consideration, take time for a date somewhere new, talk about something important to the nourishment of the relationship, or take a trip together somewhere. Single? Intimate relationships and the work around them can be highlighted this month. If you are ready to call in a partner, bear this in mind: To call in the person we truly desire, we have to be that person within ourselves first. In other words, self-love. Not sure what this is? Google “how to love the self”; it’s a fascinating subject, and whether you are in a relationship or journeying solo, it’s always a worthwhile subject matter. Enjoy the month, Scorpio!
Hi, Taurus! This month we focus on you! Selfexpression, forward motion, and burgeoning into a new personal cycle are all highlighted for you this month. As a Taurus, you take some pride in your appearance, I’d imagine; take it up a notch. Take care of yourself from the inside out. Express yourself in a new way, whether that means befriending someone new at work, finally starting that blog you’ve been dreaming about, or taking yourself on a shopping trip to update your wardrobe. Whatever makes you feel confident, expressed, and excited to move forward with your dreams is a thumbs-up. Be innovative, take the lead, and have a great month, Taurus!
Happy September, Virgo! This month highlights health, habits, and overall well-being for you. This is a time to take pride in your livelihood and ensure you have a healthy balance between work and health. Check in with yourself—how does the balance of work routine and health routine feel to you? If it feels in check, awesome. If it could use some improvement, now is an excellent time to start a new routine. Getting organized and meticulous (which I know you are great at) is a great way to start. Pilates before work can be totally plausible if you make sure you don’t work overtime the night before, and get a good night’s sleep. You get the gist. :)
