September has arrived, and with that, a whirlwind of excitement and intensity in the astrological realm. Virgo season is now in full swing—the Sun and Mars in this sign at the start of the month have everyone in a productive, focused mindset, ready to finish strong. With Venus at home in Libra, one of the signs of its rulership, our relationships may be taking a front seat. There is a desire to connect and understand our partner better, which requires us to clear the air and set things straight under the watchful eye of Virgo energy. Later on, when Venus moves into Scorpio, we may feel the distinct need to bond intensely and draw closer to our significant others than ever before—or to seek one out if currently single. Towards the very end of the month, Mercury will go into retrograde in the sign of Libra—which means some potential miscommunication and frustration, but don’t stress too much yet!
Aquarians, this month is truly an opportunity for you to explore, grow, and become. Plenty of seeds that you start to plant now will only continue to grow over time if you are willing and able to see them through—and September is determined to lend you a helping hand.
(Keep in mind to not only read for your Sun sign but your Rising sign as well!)
At the beginning of September, your mind may be elsewhere, but you’re going to sense a significant shift towards the middle of the month—particularly when Mars moves into Libra on the 14th. Highlighting your house of travel and education, you’ll likely feel the motivation to pursue academics and areas surrounding it in a way you haven’t for quite some time. You’ll feel a desire to dive deeper into your studies and learn more about the world around you—you’ll want to be immersed. The feeling will only increase once the Sun also makes its journey into that same house. Now will be the time to set your sights on achieving those goals, and you’ll see some serious progress come from it!
There is quite a bit to look forward to this month! Opportunity is still wide open for you, now that Jupiter is in your first house along with Saturn, the planet of rules, boundaries, and responsibility. While you’re likely feeling some give and take in terms of your identity, Jupiter is more than happy to open some doors for you in multiple areas in your life, as long as you’re willing to work for it. Later in the month, Venus will make its way into Scorpio, which aligns with your 10th house of career. With Venus in this placement, expect to be given the appreciation you deserve and acknowledge all your hard work. Given that Venus deals with relationships and connections, this would be an excellent time to make some contact with your boss or other authority figures—it will lead to good things later on. Also worth noting is the Full Moon in Pisces on the 20th, which lands right in your house of prosperity and resources. Things you have been manifesting regarding money may make themselves known around this time, whether by a raise, attracting new clients, or an opportunity for a new job altogether. At the very end of the month, Mercury in Libra will go into retrograde, so be wary about signing any legally binding contracts or other major decisions during this time.
Not too much is happening in this area of your life, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have things to look forward to. You’ve been struggling quite a bit with your identity and the version of yourself you show to the world, with both Jupiter and Saturn chilling in your 1st house self. While your mind may be on other matters at the moment, don’t completely ignore your friends this month—you know you’re far better when you’re keeping in close contact with them.
This month is all about personal growth in your relationships, Aquarius. While the Sun in Virgo and Mars already gives us motivational energy to see things through and get things in order, both of these placements are going to be in your 8th house of intimacy. For those in long-term relationships and marriages, this is a good time to reassess what is working and what is not for the health of your relationship. You’re likely craving a strong amount of intimacy with your partner, but if you’ve been dealing with issues and arguments lately, this could manifest more in the form of tension and serious conflicts. This is a time to set some personal boundaries and try to clear the air between you so that you can focus on each other and reestablishing some intimacy. The New Moon also falls into your 8th house, which will also open up the perfect opportunity for growth and beginning a new chapter.
Things are pretty steady on the home front during this month, Aquarius—which is good, since you’re certainly going to have your hands full. While no significant changes are going to happen, Uranus in Taurus (which takes seven years to transit a house) is still making its way through your 4th house of home, family, and roots. While you may not experience anything wildly shocking specifically in September, it’s worth noting that Uranus traveling through this house deals with change and upheaval, and with it residing in the sign of Taurus, this may feel like a bigger struggle for you than usual. Your family life may be experiencing unexpected changes, or you may be in the midst of contemplating a move. Again, this planet is here for the next few years, but it’s not a bad idea to keep that in mind if you are seeing shifts in your domestic life.
