Aries (March 21 – April 19)

The past two months have sent you back in time to face the past. With a clearer vision of the present and goals for the future, you’re ready to move forward in life. You have access to reserves of energy, especially around the time of the equinox on September 22, but you don’t want to push yourself to exhaustion. Focus is a keyword for you this month. Think about your top priorities, and embrace a disciplined approach. Professionally, if any door appears closed, stop knocking and try another one instead. After September 6, your work could have a deeper sense of purpose. You may receive a calling or be inspired to commit to a new course. Your ruling planet, Mars, ended its retrograde cycle on August 27. Now that it’s moving forward again, you will be motivated to move too. Find a workout partner or try new classes. The new moon on September 9 is favorable for starting a diet or detox. The sun shines in your relationship sector after September 22, illuminating potential for this area of your life. A few days later, the full moon on September 24 could help clarify issues you may have had in previous or current partnerships. Understand what triggers your insecurities, and you will have an entirely new experience in love. If you are single and hoping to manifest love, then you benefit from relaxing. Allow your romantic future to unfold and trust in divine timing.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

On September 22, we celebrate the equinox, one of two points in the year when we have a close balance between light and dark. As an earth sign, sync with Mother Earth and hold an intention to feel centered, no matter what transitions life brings. Take deliberate, practical steps toward achieving goals. For example, if you have wanted to lose a few pounds, rather than committing to 5 am boot camp, start by adding 20 extra minutes of activity every day. Small strides make a big difference over time. Professionally, you have the inspiration to start something new around September 10. With extra motivation for advancing your career, connect with mentors who offer direction early in the month. The new moon on September 9 highlights creativity, fertility, and new life, and you could have favorable news if you’ve been trying to start a family. It’s a good time to get in touch with your inner child and play! After September 9, Venus in your opposite sign asks you to approach romantic relationships with curiosity rather than insist on definite answers. If you have been uncertain about aspects of your relationship, try to relax and enjoy the moment. Practice gratitude and have more appreciation for the positive aspects of the relationship. The stellar influences at the beginning of the month spark desire for romance, which could be favorable for a budding relationship.

Gemini (May 20 – June 21)

In the Wizard of Oz, when Dorothy clicks her heels three times and says, “There’s no place like home,” she discovers she’s had the power to manifest her heart’s desire all along. Think about your life. What yellow-brick roads have you walked on your way to self-discovery? What heart’s desire do you seek to manifest right now? You have the power; access it from within. On September 22, the Sun enters Libra and kicks off a new season. It’s a creative time, with favorable influences for beautifying your life. Your ruling planet Mercury is moving forward after a retrograde cycle, and you can now make up for any lack of motivation you have had. You might even think of ways to expand your work through travel. This is an excellent month to organize yourself to lay the groundwork for career shifts. If you have been thinking about making changes to your home, you could iron out the details around the new moon on September 9. For inspiration, start with a deep cleaning to tackle cluttered spaces. If you have felt restless or unsure about a relationship, be truly present with your person. If you find yourself wanting to run, stand still and take time to appreciate aspects of your connection. If your relationship is solid and healthy, you could fall in love all over again after September 22. If you are single, the more centered you feel, the more likely you are to attract love. If you’ve had creative blocks, the full moon on September 24 could open your mind to new ideas.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Your horoscope starts out with an activity to try. Sometime before September 7, meet three new people in your neighborhood. Take a walk through town or visit a nearby cafe, and strike up a conversation with a stranger. The more you experience connection and belonging, the more you bloom. You could also spend more time with siblings or close friends this month. Plan a reunion or vacation. The new moon on September 9 signals a shift for some of these relationships. If the past has been rocky, look through the eyes of compassion and see a bigger picture. Several planets were retrograde last month, and you may have felt more nostalgic. If you spent time looking through old photos or reconnected with people from your past, you likely cleared energetic space in your life for new beginnings. This month, establish a vision for your future. You may need to hone a skill to advance your career. You might consider taking a class or working toward a certification. Professionally, communication is a theme until September 22. You may need to think outside the box for new ways to market yourself, especially if you own a business or desire to teach or write. In your love life, you have a stronger sense of security than you have in the previous two months. You might feel more connected, surer of your commitment to your partner. You could enjoy many romantic encounters with Venus in passionate Scorpio after September 9. Keep an open heart, and allow yourself to be surprised.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

With the Sun as your sign’s ruler, you were born to shine, which means using your gifts to the fullest and expressing yourself. Fear can limit you into dimming your light. When you feel stuck in life, you may need to transmute fear into courage. This month offers opportunities for movement in that direction. Financial matters are top of mind, especially around the new moon on September 9. Keep in mind self-criticism could stifle creative solutions. Be gentle with yourself and stay open to possibilities. New moons symbolize fresh starts, and this could be yours. After September 6, it’s time to get to work. With extra motivation, though, it won’t feel like a chore. Commit to personal development practices this month, like meditation or affirmations. After September 21, you could hear of a class or workshop to support spiritual growth. The beginning of autumn is a transitional (and often busy) time of year for many, especially those with school-age children. You may not be able to meet all of your loved ones’ needs. Do your best, and make time for yourself, especially around September 12. You could have a renewed interest in romance if you have been single for some time after September 10. You may have had some revelations about your love life over the past two months, and you could have even reached a critical turning point. In light of these discoveries, you are ready to take action to either manifest a new relationship or make changes in your current one.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Welcome to Virgo season. It’s your time, and hopefully, you are in celebration mode. When the sun returns to the degree it was at the time of your birth it ushers in a new cycle, called the Solar Return. So, you might think back on the past 12 months. What were the highlights? Accomplishments? September is a month for movement, and the more you focus on the positive, the more you will experience abundant manifestations in this new solar year. The new moon in your sign on September 9 invites you to let go of fear and embrace possibility. Ritualize the experience by journaling or creating a vision board. The sun shines in your sign until September 22. Think of it as a great big spotlight, and use the energy to promote yourself.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Your personal magnetism reaches a peak this month. Venus, the planet of beauty, enters your sign on September 9. Venus reminds us: Being in a state of receptivity is grace, not weakness. This power draws unto itself, attracting and allowing, without a need to hunt or chase. If the past two months have been a mix of healing transformation and life review, you can now close previous chapters and embrace the new. If your love life felt like a roller-coaster ride, consider the gifts you received through the turbulent times. If the gifts were painful, like an ending, then you can now begin to see a new horizon. You start to regain confidence, knowing you have done your best. Own your charisma. If you are in a relationship, communication is your keyword, especially September 9.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Your heart’s desires offer insights into your soul’s intentions. When you want something, like a career change, relationship, or a fresh start, your soul could be asking for an expansion opportunity. These types of wants aim you forward on your hero’s journey, and your path to manifesting them can be a mythic one. When things don’t manifest quickly, you often have to surrender. In doing so, you open yourself to possibilities you could never have imagined. You have just completed a two-month cycle of desire and surrender, and now, it’s time to start anew. At the beginning of the month, you have financial matters on your mind. Try not to dwell on past decisions you would do differently today.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Other times, though, you have to recalculate and take an alternate path. Over the past two months, you may have encountered some moments like these. Thinking about those in retrospect, you can better appreciate any insights, growth, or healing. A divine plan is unfolding, and a new cycle begins with the equinox on September 22. Take time early in the month to truly appreciate where you are now. Be present with what is before you rush into something new. Don’t forget to celebrate your successes.
