Happy September, everyone! We find ourselves with the sun in Virgo and an active and amazing month ahead after the solar eclipse (in Leo) of August. Virgo emphasizes balance of all kinds: being meticulous about our work and balancing out our daily routines. Virgo also encourages us to help out the people in our lives or even to be of service to strangers.
For September, taking care of our vessels will also be key because when we feel our best, we do our best. The full moon in Pisces on September 20 asks us to balance out the mundane with the spiritual, so even as you are hyper focused on moving ahead this month, be sure to add in some yoga, meditation, or journaling when you need a little time-out. Mercury will be going direct on September 5 from Leo back into Virgo, so we will experience a lot of forward movement with that.
Read on to see what the cosmos have to say for your star sign this month.
Okay, Aries, after all the busyness of the last few months, taking some time to chill or enjoy some spiritual vibes will be in order. This transit can rule water, so if your schedule is too hectic, even just spending an evening at a saltwater spa or taking a bath at home can be very beneficial. Stay rooted and balanced for any surprising news this month that makes you even busier than you have been. Self-care and spiritual care are key for September.
Hi, Taurus! New beginnings and lots of energy are both available to you for September. Where can you step out of your comfort zone and be center stage this month? Revamping your look, making over your closet, or trying that new bold color (hair or dress) are all highlighted for you this month. Be sure to also take special care of your homestead because I have a feeling you will be entertaining, too.
Gemini, money is highlighted for you this month as you focus on making more of it or managing what you have. Your productivity and goals come to the forefront, and writing down all the tasks at hand will be crucial for your forward movement this month. Even as you’re hustling, don’t forget to have a bit of fun. After Mercury goes direct September 5, I think you’re going to be feeling great with the sun in Virgo (Virgo has the same ruling planet as you do).
Social schedules, quick adventures out of town, and local exploration are all up for you this month, Cancer. If you’ve been in hermit mode just a little too much, it’s time to get out and be social! This month also highlights speaking up for yourself—if something isn’t feeling right at work or in a friendship, speak your heart.
It’s time to rest and rejuvenate after a busy birthday month. There has been so much energy in your sign as of late, which I am sure you can handle because you are a Leo. Take some time to rest and chill out at home as much as you can, and get planning for the future. Decide where you’d like to expend your valuable energy as you move into the rest of the year. You’ll be happy to slow down voluntarily because you may not get another chance before 2017 ends.
Happy birthday, Virgo! This month is for celebration, creativity, and lightheartedness. What would you like to do for your birthday? You are always doing things for others, so now it’s time to let the people in your life love and take care of you for your birthday. If this means taking a nice trip (and a break from work) or indulging in a beautiful dinner at the best restaurant, do it and enjoy.
Hi, Libra! This month you are asked to balance out your work and health routine (in keeping with the Virgo energy at play this month). Making time for yourself each morning before moving into a busy day is great. Exercise and clean eating are also highlighted for you this month. Jupiter will soon be leaving your sign, so be sure to wrap up any long-standing projects if there’s anything you’ve been procrastinating on.
Relationships are highlighted for you this month, Scorpio, and your concern with feeling balanced and healthy within them is important. Learning new ways to relate could be a healthy way for you to spend your time this month if some relationships have been feeling out of harmony. Socializing and making room for good people is important; be sure to listen to your intuition on who is and who isn’t a good match for you.
Hi, Sagittarius—September promises to be a deep month for you, and as I advised for Virgo season, taking some time to balance out your routine is going to be important for you. Getting plenty of sleep, meditating, and even making some time for intimacy with someone you love are all highlighted. It can definitely be a month of major personal transformations, so if you’ve been trying to let go of a bad habit or begin a new self-championing practice, September could be a great month to start.
Capricorn, September is going to be a great month to open your mind and do something out of the ordinary. What would you like to learn that you’ve been putting off? Travel can be highlighted, or take a course to get yourself out of your comfort zone.
Hi, Aquarius! September marks a career transit for you. Setting goals and being proactive will be a wonderful way to spend your energy this month. Make doable lists, and cross them off. (Weekly goal-setting is a must.) You will feel rejuvenated through your proactivity for September—just don’t forget to take weekends to chill a bit or sleep in.
Friends, goals, and life visions are highlighted for you this month, Pisces. Be sure you have encouraging people around you. I always like to suggest mood or vision boarding to get yourself inspired for this transit. You can do this via Pinterest or with a bunch of magazines and a poster board to get yourself visually inspired. Heal any feelings of inadequacy or fears of moving forward with your dreams this month, Pisces—you have a lot of amazing stuff coming around the corner.
