While we are no longer experiencing as many retrogrades and Eclipse seasons is over, it doesn’t mean that September is going to be the calm after the storm. Many of the planets that turn direct this month bring a massive influence of karmic energies, and certain sign changes can prove to be rather… chaotic!
On September 5th, Mercury enters Virgo, where it is not only home, but also brings some order into our World. Communication is clear and direct, influencing us to stay on point and to focus on the facts. This may also be the workaholics paradise, as not only do things run smoothly, but efficiently as well. We are able to analyze information with great precision. This is a wonderful time for writers, teachers, and also those who are crafty as attention to detail highly favored.
The Lord of Karma, Saturn, turns direct on September 6th, so we can stop dwelling on the negatives and come out of the shell we’ve been hiding under. While under the influence of Capricorn, which rules Saturn, this is a very fruitful time when it comes to rewards and receiving recognition for past efforts. Luck is on our side once again, and many who had experienced blockages, may not have free range to move forward with plans and ideas, or positive transformational changes that need to take place.
A few days later, on September 9th, Venus enters Scorpio and is accompanied by a Virgo New Moon.
Venus is not compatible while in Scorpio, and so while the first few planetary changes have proven to be welcomed, this one isn’t as much. This is a time of manipulation, power struggles within relationships, and even obsessions or addictions that prove to be rather toxic. We will experience a short break when Venus enters Libra on the 22nd, but then it moves back into Scorpio for the remainder of the year due to its retrograde in October. So be careful with possessive and controlling behaviors.
The Virgo New Moon pushes a major emphasis on taking care of others. We are inspired to help others through acts of service which benefit their highest good. This is an extremely nurturing and feminine New Moon as all 10 planets are nuzzled within feminine signs, allowing us to focus on the love we give in ways that truly matter, more than just affection, but through nurturing and helping in ways others need.
We have another long relationship with another planetary change on September 10th when Mars enters Aquarius once again, and where it will remain until mid-November. Mars in Aquarius is a very people-oriented position and so these shifts brought on by the square with Uranus may reach out to society in a massive scale. This may also affect commitments as a sudden need for freedom and working on different activities will arise.
The next sign change we get to experience is Mercury moving into Libra on September 21st, where it is more focused on communication with an artistic flair than sticking so much to the facts. Rationality and logic still rule, but it is softened, and flirtatiousness is added to the mix as well. The words we speak, or write, are works of art. Just as when Mercury was in Virgo, we still are inspired to consider all sides and aspects, but, when in Libra we can often get stuck do to indecision when counting those pros and cons. This may not be a good few weeks to make any drastic decisions, but to instead let loose a little. This is also a wonderful time to socialize and make new friends.
September 22nd isn’t just the first day of fall (autumn equinox), but also when the Sun enters Libra. Balance is restored in our World. However, sometimes we can be too focused on others, as the sign of Libra is a true people-pleaser. To ensure that balance is achieved, this is a good time to set boundaries with those who only take, to be a little selfish when saying No to others and doing something nice for ourselves, and also being receptive to gifts.
On September 24th, we have a powerful Harvest Full Moon in Aries. While an Aries Moon suggests new beginnings, the opposite is actually true due to a square where it opposes the Sun, Mercury, Pluto, and Saturn, and so the message it brings is: get your sh*t together. This is a time of completion, so when old relationships, projects, or experiences seem to be triggered, know that it isn’t to revive them, but to put that final touch and to allow closure, so we can finally move on towards those new beginnings.
To end the month with a grand finale, Pluto moves Direct on September 30th. Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008, where it has been a very occultic influence, inspiring the New Age or awakening, actually it’s more like the ‘Old Age Remembered’ where we are beginning to embrace out pagan roots and shamanic teachings of religions that predate Christianity. However, Pluto in Capricorn also has a strong hold on Government and Politics - primarily the Powers that Be. When in retrograde with Saturn, it had pushed many of us to dive deep to understand our own personal power, and the power others hold of us, and so moving direct with Saturn, it allows us to act on making those transformational life changes in ensure a balance in power, and taking more authortive control over our own lives.

Aries, you are truly young at heart, some might even say you will forever keep that childlike glow about you – never aging when it comes to your energy and spirit. Not only that, but you also have the gift of having an optimism which enables you to truck through some of the darkest times that others are also seemingly too serious about. This quality will serve you well this month, but, you mustn’t allow it to go overboard, or get carried away to where you don’t also add a dash of some adulting as well. This means that while you will have a pretty rad month, you will have to stand up and act accordingly to ensure you truly get the best out of it.
This month also represents children in your life – such as your own, or those younger than you which you inspire and have a great deal of influence over or are even responsible for. There is a reason to celebrate them, either a child on the way, or perhaps you must help someone in need who needs your direct guidance.
On September 24th, there is a Harvest Full Moon in Aries which will have a major impact on you as the Sun opposes when with Libra. This is major for making peace or understanding conflicts as well as a deeper sense of intimacy within an already established relationship.

Trust is a big theme for September, Taurus. You might find it hard to rely on others, or to even reestablish faith in someone who proves to have ulterior motives or is just difficult all together within an issue that you need their compliance on.
When Venus movies in Scorpio on September 9th, this may be a difficult time for you as it opposes your sign, and home planet. This calls for a spike in manipulation and having too much ego involved. Not to mention, Uranus is currently in retrograde and within Taurus, bringing some chaos into your personal relationships and ideals about partnership – be it romantic or career related.
Your best bet this month, is to speak up when you feel something is off – but to do so peacefully so to avoid any unwanted drama. Also, do not blindly trust someone until you do your own investigation and be observant of any hidden intentions or motives.

Focus and intuition are the keys for you this month, Gemini. While your ruling planet, Mercury is officially direct and out of the post-shadow period, you might still be feeling a bit cloudy, especially when it comes to making certain decisions. Also, it seems that others just have to put their two cents in, making it even harder for you to get a clear grip on what you need to do. Your answer, as always, lies within. You may have to limit your social life a bit so to ensure some quiet time that will bring forth the clarity needed.
You may also be considering something new, something that seems fun and intriguing from the outside, but once you get the full details, things do not seem as exciting. This is also why you need to take your time before jumping on board, and do your own research on the matter, as some might be overexaggerating, making something gold plated seem gold filled.
Gemini, you are one to typically jump into something without first thinking it through, because you are so very adaptable and adventurous. However, it would be wise if you take your time instead, and rather than communicating so much with others on what current spectacles are unfolding in your life, it would be best to instead bite your tongue.

September might be a bit bi-polar for you, Cancer, and while you are prone to changing emotions, this month could prove to be a bit stressful as it deals with mistrust, betrayal as well as good things which bring forth reasons to celebrate. With that said, you will have to take the blows with grace, and also humbly accept the rewards. Which really isn’t so hard for you Cancer, so while you will feel the ups and downs of the month, you will most likely come out pretty good about things.
The key to this month is to remember your blessings, and to focus more energy on what makes you happy, brings you a peace of mind, as well as what is worth your time and energy. While you will have certain things going on that require you to be cautious, you don’t want them to consume every ounce of you, to where you lack the energy and strength to receive and continue to grow the wonderful things that are blossoming and unfolding.
The Harvest Full Moon in Aries on the 24th might prove to be a bit dramatic to you, so do be on the lookout and prepare yourself to transmute the drama.

Something good is going to manifest into your life this month, Leo, BUT… there is some caution to throw to the wind, as well as even your own doubts to work through. The main thing to remember, however, is that regardless of the good or the bad that you will experience this month, it will most likely be brief. This is where you can sigh in relief knowing that anything negative won’t stick around too long, but then again, nothing positive will either.
You will be receiving news of something wonderful that is about to happen, and while you might feel its too good to be true, it is actually what you make of it that gives that statement any validity. The key is not to become attached, or to put all of your energy into it, but rather enjoy what you receive and take it for what it is.
Another key you have to remember is your attitude – while you aren’t one to back down from a fight, or to throw away a good thing, the stress of these themes might get to you. Try to keep your head on your shoulders and don’t allow anything to steal your inner peace.

Happy Birthday, Virgo! 🎁🎂🎈🎉
You are going through some pretty big changes this month, Virgo, and it seems that they are rather cyclic changes as well. Not only are these changes rather cyclic, but they may be rather life-altering as well. You are going to have to put an end to something, but it’s not such a bad thing but because much better is going to take its place. Consider this a shedding – letting go of what no longer serves you and growth or evolution into a better path that serves your highest good.
The theme for you this month, is rebirth, and that fits so well because it is after all your birthday month. You will most likely be experiencing these changes right around the beginning of the month when Mercury enters Virgo and Saturn turns Direct. These planetary shifts are going to affect you deeply, and even if it takes all month for them to manifest the changes, you will be able to look back at the process near the end of the month with a smile, seeing how all of those dark days were a thing of the past as your World opens up to new opportunities and better experiences.
The New Moon in Virgo on the 9th would be a good time for you to consider what changes need to be made that better suit not only your lifestyle, but your health as well – and not just your physical health – but your spiritual and mental as well.

Oh boy Libra… You are in store for a rather climatic month! September is going to be kind to you, but also extremely busy in some areas of your life as well. The question is, can you keep up?
Changes are going to be taking place which allow you the freedom to finally choose what you want from life, rather than having to deal with what you are given. It’s almost like you are given a free slate after bypassing cycles that kept you limited in the past. I do feel that from the 21st when Mercury enter your sign, to when the Sun enters your sign, you will experience a sort of increase in miracles and magic. So, keep your mind open to the synchronicities that will be hard to miss, and allow your heart to be your guide.
You might also be looking back into the past a lot this month, so to understand the reasons behind some of the events that will take place this month. The reason for this is so you can apply better judgement to some of the changes occurring, because you might feel a bit conflicted when making certain choices.
Also, just a little caution to throw out there, do be careful with taking on too much – as you might be sought after or invited to many events that could conflict with other things going on.

September is going to be a rather emotional month for you, Scorpio. This may be cause from Venus entering your sign on the 9th, causing you to focus on your value system, relationships, and also financial affairs. You may also be experiencing limitations this month that could stress you out, but that is only if you perceive it as a bad thing. Remember, everything truly happens for a reason, and sometimes limitations are placed upon our paths so to review our steps, or reconsider what you are trying to achieve.
You will have to hold back a bit this month and spend more focus on yourself and also in setting boundaries with others who seem to take more than they give back to you. When it comes to taking care of those you love, you are truly a very selfless sign, however, you need to think about yourself as well because when you have nothing left to give, and others still try to take from you, then the emptiness you feel could end up being rather draining and can cause an imbalance to your emotional and spiritual well-being.
Pluto, your ruling planet, also moves direct on the 30th, which pushes you to power-up, and with that being said, could be the cause of you drawing back so to rejuvenate and recharge.

It seems that self-doubt is the theme for this month. You are overwhelmed, Sagittarius, and trying to maintain balance in all aspects of your life right now seems to be rather difficult. Perhaps it’s not the situations that are to blame, but your perspective of them, and also of yourself.
A lot of this might be from obligations from the past that you had procrastinated on, and are coming back to bite you in the butt. You need to pull through and get it done, Sagittarius, because putting these things off any longer will only hold you back when opportunities you want to take part, pass you by because you are limited in time, or resources.
Above all, don’t forget that others around you are more than capable to help out where you need it. Don’t be too proud and push them away, especially when they offer, or feel that you will only be rejected when you ask – because the opposite may be true. Sometimes it takes a village to take care of certain things, and sometimes other slacking where they need to step up. Don’t be the one that has to pay for the laziness of others, and don’t take it hard on yourself when you are the only one putting in the effort and work. Hold back, and make others step up.

September is going to be rather busy for you, Capricorn, and what else? Well… Saturn, your ruling planet which is also currenting transiting your sign, is turning direct on the 6th which could push a heavy dose of karma in your life this month. You might have to make hard, life-altering changes, which are going to be extremely difficult. As we dive further into the other aspects of your World this month, we will discover where these are stemming from.
You may also find yourself in the spotlight this month as well, as there is something you have, or do, that is catching the eye of others. While you don’t mind attention for things that you are proud of, you do need to be careful with what kind of attention you are receiving. Basically, don’t go saying Yes to certain invitations that you know aren’t truly in your best interest. Its not that there are hidden agendas behind these, but that you could end up getting yourself into trouble, especially when your own pride or ego gets in the way.
The Harvest Full Moon in Aries might also prove to be a difficult time for you, as there are many other opposing planetary placements surrounding it.

Whatever happens, happens for a reason, Aquarius. It seems that events from the past have led up to some devastating events that may take place in September, and they are unavoidable. This may be due to a much-needed release of either emotions, or even an old path you were once on. While there isn’t much you can do to avoid this situation from unfolding, what you can do is control the way you go about it, as well as how you make the most of things afterwards.
September urges you to let something go and resisting this will only make things harder on yourself. It does seem that you have been dealing with a lot this year, but it is all for change and a push onto a better pathway. You aren’t one to conform, and even when the Universe or fate steps in to make changes, you will still do what you can to go about your own way. This is not going to work in your favor, and you will have to comply so to make things easier for yourself.
Mars will be in your sign for the next few months as well, pulling the strings and making you act accordingly, so to bring the freedom you desire into your life.

A whole new World of experiences is emerging in September for you, Pisces. It seems that luck is on your side, and magic is definitely afoot. While of course you can’t have the good without the bad, it does seem that this month leans more towards goodness than anything else – the only negatives that you may experience is having to grow a backbone so to protect your own interests in setting boundaries.
The key to this month is authority – casting your own, that is. While you will feel guided towards something wonderful, you do have to draw back a bit and really consider all of the details at play so to ensure you are prepared and also that the end result is as magnificent as you had hoped.
Don’t act hastily, though, you don’t want to jump into something without first thinking things through. While you might be willing to take a leap into the unknown, you need to make sure that the landing won’t break your back.
So don’t get lost in the clouds this month, Pisces, as it is easy for you to do so, you need to focus on grounding.
