Aries (March 21-April 19)
If you want to finish a marathon, you first need to prepare. You need to train your body as well as adjust your mindset. Training for anything takes discipline. Now, think about your goals. How might you apply the same levels of discipline and positive thinking you’d need in a race to accomplish these goals? As a cardinal sign, you can get fired up in the initiation stage and lose steam with the day-to-day. This month that changes, and you have extra stamina and focus.
In your professional life, you could experience some unexpected shifts, especially with colleagues, schedules, or office-related matters. At the beginning of the month, try to sink into a routine. It could all change, but at least you’ll be off to a good start.
The full moon on September 13 shines a spotlight on your health, making this a favorable time for self-care, like a detox or breaking unhealthy habits. Anything you start will have lasting benefits.
Your love life becomes a focus for you at the end of the month. At the equinox on September 23, you may experience your current relationship in a new way. Your blinders are off through the end of the month, allowing you to see both the healthy and triggering aspects of your relationship more clearly. If you are single, this message applies to past relationships or self-love. The new moon on September 28 offers a fresh perspective on the subject of love. You have a chance to restructure your mindset and set intentions accordingly.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
As a Taurus, you were born to experience the physical senses to the highest levels! This month, indulge. Accept any of your present desires, knowing you can be discerning about which ones to feed and which to channel into other outlets. For example, you don’t have to eat all the chocolate cake, but acknowledge the desire without judgment.
The full moon on September 13 shines a spotlight on your social life. Accept invitations, as you are more open to meeting new friends and forming lasting connections. Some of your social activities may even inspire creative ideas.
Professionally, this month presents two distinct themes. At the beginning of the month, you have fresh ideas and a desire to express them. This makes you quite a performer, and you may enjoy sharing your work in a more public way. Then, after the equinox on September 23, your focus shifts, and you can accomplish tasks that support manifesting your ideas. You could have a stroke of genius around September 1. Keep a journal at the beginning of the month so you can later remember any insights, dreams, or visions.
You could feel lucky in love, especially before September 14. If you are single, you could adopt a more hopeful outlook and open yourself up to love’s possibilities. If you are involved, you might feel more relaxed in your current relationship. Perhaps you and your partner could discover a way to rekindle the spark that initially drew you together. Release expectations, and fall back into the arms of trust.
Gemini (May 20-June 20)
Serious times cause for serious humor. It takes a certain kind of intelligence to view the world (and life) through a comedic lens, and you have it! So, think about some of the more challenging aspects of your life right now. Can you find any bright spots? Any funny moments? Laughter raises your vibration, which can keep you healthy, happy, and manifesting pleasant things. If matters seem far too somber this month, find more reasons to laugh and maintain your playful Gemini spirit.
At the beginning of the month, you could be busy with back-to-school schedules, taking care of things around the house, and attending to life’s details. Then, after September 23, your focus shifts to enjoying more of life’s little pleasures. This is a highly creative time for you, and your productivity could soar through inspired action rather than tedious effort. The new moon on September 28 introduces a highly fertile time, when you want to plant seeds, literally or metaphorically.
Around September 21, newfound awareness could change the trajectory of your life. You may see a situation with a clearer vision and even uncover a hidden truth. Stay open-minded but be present for whatever unfolds. For clues about how to navigate this time, think about what was happening in January and July.
At the end of the month, your relationship status could change, especially if you’re single. Venus moves into Libra on September 14, helping smooth out any love life challenges. Late September is a time for romance. Release expectations and allow love to surprise you.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The month begins on a high note. Your mind is sharp and active, and you have brilliant ideas to share. Because of this, you might feel like a soft-shelled Cancer, open-hearted, and ready to form deeper connections with neighbors, family, and friends. Take advantage of this energy, and go out of your way to meet new people. Network, join a community organization, volunteer for your favorite cause, and converse with neighbors. By doing so, you could welcome a breakthrough in your personal life.
The full moon on September 13 invites you on a new adventure, and you could be led to travel. If you cannot get away, then at least explore a new local scene or venue. Step outside your comfort zone, and you could have a significant spiritual awakening.
After that, your attention turns to home and family. You could be called upon to help a loved one in need after September 23. If you have considered making changes in your home, Venus helps the cause after September 14. You may be inspired to redesign or decorate your space.
You’ve been in a period of self-reflection, and this has perhaps shifted your love life. You still have discoveries to make, especially from September 18-22. Dedicate yourself to personal growth this month, and dig deep within your psyche to uncover hidden fears or illusions. Then, you will see improvements in all of your relationships. If you are dating, the new moon on September 28 could be a favorable time to solidify a commitment with your significant other.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
You’ve just started a new year of life and a new solar cycle. How does it feel so far? If you’ve set intentions, now is the time to nurture them as you would attend to a crop of growing seeds. Carefully allocate resources, attend to day-to-day tasks, and budget your time wisely. With so many planets in Virgo, be discerning in all you do.
The full moon on September 13 spotlights financial matters, and you could discover ways to shift long-held beliefs about abundance. For some of you, this personal inquiry might lead to heart expansion and allow you to feel more gratitude and generosity. For others, this shift may help you discover the root cause of financial fear. You have no space for lack-based thinking with doors of opportunity opening, especially on September 21, when a spiritual awakening could be part of an overall shift.
The equinox on September 23 means balance between light and dark. At this time, you could feel a greater sense of balance in your life, too. Though your social life could be busier toward the end of the month, prioritize which invites to accept and which to decline.
Romance may not be as much of a focus at this time. Instead, you could crave more true commitment in your relationship. Emphasize self-love, and you will expand your capacity to receive love in a balanced relationship. If you are single, focus on what you desire and settle for nothing less.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
At the beginning of the month, you have a keener perspective. You are starting a new solar year and setting intentions in place. Because of that, you can stop self-defeating patterns and start realizing your dreams. It’s time to take charge, accepting responsibility for things that have not worked out according to plan. See the beauty in your path, and trust it is all for a purpose. You could see the unfoldment of that purpose this month.
Several planets occupy your sign at the beginning of the month, helping you look and feel your best. Use that boost of confidence to motivate yourself to take steps forward in your career. You could network to meet new people or take a leap of faith. You have extra courage to do what may otherwise seem impossible. Plus, you have found ways to quiet the inner voices of worry and doubt. Plant seeds, set intentions, and trust in favorable outcomes.

Those themes will repeat themselves and finally conclude. Stay present to anything that comes up for you, and trust.
Libra (September 22-October 22)
You could feel called to do a deep soul-dive and explore your psyche. Pluto, the god of the Underworld, is also the god of gems. Mining the dark corners of the earth, we find gold. So too, you are on a path of self-discovery looking for beauty in the hidden spaces, especially with the full moon on September 13. After that, things start to shift, and your focus moves from the inner world to the outer one as you gear up for Libra season. Find balance to honor your personal growth while also enjoying social time.
The equinox on September 23 will illuminate the most significant themes coming up for you over the next four months. Take charge of your destiny; you are the author of your life.

Venus enters Libra on September 14, and her influence helps you better experience your beauty and grace. If you allow yourself to see more of your goodness, others will, too. Extra confidence makes you more attractive, which could help you connect with prospective dates. If you’re in a relationship, take care of home-related business early in the month to play later in the month. Pay bills, tidy up, and make repairs. Then, you can be more present with your partner. Let go of expectations or judgmental thoughts so that you can experience more joy, laughter, and love.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Einstein said, “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” Start the month imagining life’s possibilities. Then, strategize. Start with the end game of your envisioned future and work your way back.
You could feel pulled in different directions. Social activities and community affairs fill your calendar. You also feel an internal tug beginning to grow stronger, that of your higher self calling you to embrace your gifts and maximize your potential. That’s a more independent vibe. Both social and individual activities facilitate your expansion. Still, you could be intentional about it. Engage in a collaborative project, work with a coach or therapist, or attend a spiritual workshop to balance interpersonal connection and personal growth.
Professionally, this is a time for networking to connect with helpful people who can open doors of opportunity. If you have considered asking for a raise, make your request before September 14 for it to be more favorably received. Use your intuition to seek prospective clients or pursue job leads at the beginning of the month. After September 21, you may not be as clear.
The full moon on September 13 highlights romance for you. If you wish to have a stronger, healthier partnership, adopt new attitudes about your partner. Remember how you felt when you first fell in love? You may want to turn within and rekindle a zest for life. That spirit of eros is alive within you, and it is the prime creative life force energy that motivates new beginnings in love and life.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Your ruling planet, Jupiter, is moving forward after its retrograde cycle. So, too, you could feel inspired to move ahead in life, though you may need to discern which opportunities to seize and which to forego. If you feel uncertain about work or love, tune out the static in your mind. Align yourself to the beating of your heart and feel the rhythm. You’ll know a decision is in your best and highest good if your heartbeat tells you. When your mind stutters and chatters, it speaks the voice of fear.
On September 21, you could have a spiritual awakening. Pay attention to what events are happening in your life. If you start to doubt others or question yourself, seek guidance. If you find yourself engaged in a conflict, resist the urge to hold too tightly to your perspective. See through the eyes of compassion and act accordingly. This is the third exact square in a series. Think about the themes that were up in January and June for insight about what events might unfold this month.
After September 14, you could be busy with social and community affairs. If you are single, a connection with a friend could lead to romance. If you are involved in a relationship, you could face some challenges early in the month. Remain optimistic. The end of the month is favorable for experiencing more enjoyment both individually and together, especially on September 24. The new moon on September 28 suggests you will have a meaningful encounter.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
This month offers a contrast. On the one hand, you are reaching the fulfillment of goals. Your hard work is paying off, and you can see hints of the future you’re creating. On the other hand, you’re still building a foundation for that future, and that process takes time. So, you could have moments of frustration in an otherwise exciting time. Maintain your focus and don’t lose faith.
Your ruling planet, Saturn, slows down to a crawl before stationing direct on September 18. You need to conserve energy and prioritize your wellbeing. After September 23 and for the next three months, life will seem to fly. Enjoy the meaningful moments in your day-to-day life now.
For much of the month, your mind craves knowledge and understanding. Seek wise counsel, especially if you become entangled in legal matters. On September 21, you may have a spiritual awakening.
Professionally, you could see more recognition after the equinox on September 23, when the sun lights up your career sector. This is no time to play small; show the world what you have to offer. It will be well-received.
Overall, this is a highly independent time, as many of your goals are coming to fruition. Because of this, you will need to be more intentional about connecting with your special someone. If you are single, be discerning when choosing a match or agreeing to go on a date. You deserve to have big love if you want it! You have time; you don’t have to settle.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Finish your chores, and then you can play. Your inner parent might give you this directive this month. Up to September 13, you take care of business, which may mean balancing your budget, paying down credit cards, or researching ways to save money on things like insurance. Afterward, it’s time to play! By the Equinox on September 23, you will be ready for a break, one that may take you on an adventure far away.
Travel could be a possibility, as it fits within a larger theme of experiencing freedom and expanding your worldview. First, you have to let go of your need for control — what better way to surrender than to be in an entirely new place? If you can’t get away, at least try changing up your daily routine. Take a different route to work or venture to an undiscovered part of town.
The full moon on September 13 highlights economic matters. If it makes sense, ask for a raise or raise your rates. Financial changes start with mindset shifts. Look into your beliefs around abundance, wealth, and prosperity. Then, release any that no longer serve you in a ritual.
In your love life, you are working through subconscious resistance to merging with another. Even if you are happily married, you could discover new insights into these matters. Around September 21, you could have a spiritual awakening that allows you to see beyond any of love’s illusions. You can then gain clarity and appreciate the present, no matter what your relationship status may be.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
At times, you may wish you had thicker skin. For now, let’s celebrate your sensitivity! You have the spiritual gift of compassion and can see the best in others. Sometimes, though, you need to see the whole picture, not just potential. When meeting someone new, remember this Maya Angelou quote: “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.” Romantic relationships and business partnerships are big themes for you. You may see changes in both. Use your intuition and practice self-care to avoid becoming lost in another person’s drama.
From September 19-23, you could have a spiritual awakening. Think back to events in January and June for clues about how to move through this important time. Engage in a meditation practice, attend a spiritual retreat, or lead a ritual to make the most of this time. You’re open to divine guidance, and it could come from unexpected sources.
The full moon on September 13 places a spotlight on you. Is there a presentation you want to give? A performance you’d like to share? Go ahead! The stage is yours.
At the end of the month, you may need to put personal matters aside and attend to details of life, like finances. The new moon on September 28 could offer you an investment opportunity. That could mean an investment of time into a new enterprise or energy into a new relationship. Keep the long-term picture in mind with anything you start and seek advice or counsel if you feel stuck.
