Aries (Spring Equinox-approx. April 21st): As September starts off, you may find yourself pulled in two separate directions, one up, yet one down. While some of this may have to do with your relationships with your immediate family and loved ones, some of this may also have to do with your own inner healing journey. It would be wise to juggle as best you can for the time being, knowing that this will pass, and fairly quickly at that! As September progresses, you may find tension grows in the air, even though situations with your family and loved ones has worked themselves out. You may also find communication strained, but otherwise optimism and bluntness abounds. This shift of energy may allow you to focus more on the shifting professional landscape.
Taurus (Approx. April 21st to approx. May 21st): With things going well with the family and loved ones, you may find this frees up energy to put into the workplace and occupation. Your intuition could be quite valuable right now for knowing what moves to make, when, and how. It is also worth noting that the moves we’re discussing may have long-term consequences. As September marches forward, you may find the family situation and loved ones now present challenges whereas before things were smooth, but other than that, the month continues tamely. It is worth noting though, that the beginning of the Mars retrograde may come with some bumps and swerves, so it would be wise to be ready.
Gemini (Approx. May 21st to Summer Solstice): September may begin with challenges in the workplace, especially as it pertains to communication and adaptability, so it would be wise to adapt, and do it with a smile. Your energy levels may be higher than normal, but this could be too much of a good thing if you’re not careful. However, your emotions may be out of sorts as well, but simply know that this will pass quickly. As September moves forward, you may find things change from challenging to smooth, especially when it comes to friends and strokes of good fortune. You may still find your emotions are tenser than normal, but other than that, things may even themselves out for a smooth month. You may also find that now is a good time to re-evaluate where your energy is going, and why, to make the appropriate healthy changes.
Cancer (Summer Solstice to approx. July 21st): Smooth flowing goodness may be the theme of the beginning of September, but this may be tempered with the potential for accidents or a short temper if you are not mindful. However, you may also find now is a good time to do some inner healing. Your ability to communicate with spirits may be strong early in the month, but this will fade quickly. As the month moves forward, you may see a strong shift, from smoothness to challenges, especially when it comes to your friends and casual acquaintances. Communication may also be challenged there, too. For the latter part of the month, the dominant theme may be small, daily adjustments in order to navigate the personal changes occurring.
Leo (Approx. July 21st to approx. August 21st): “Stuck in the middle with you” may be the theme for the beginning of September due to the fact that so many adjustments are required, you may feel stuck, not able to either adapt fast enough or not able to know which adjustment to make, and when. When the equinox arrives though, you may find things change dramatically for the better. Good things may come your way through your friends, or at least they provide a distraction, and good fortune with regards to taking chances or through children may arrive at your door to be seized. You may also find that optimism is more common than normal, and that you have more energy than normal. Watch out for a shortened temper, though, and do your best to avoid accidents.
Virgo (Approx. August 21st to Autumnal Equinox): Happy birthday, Virgos! It is your month, and it starts out well and strong as it normally does. While the theme may continue to be on the workplace, it would also be wise to take some time for you. Your emotions may be tense at first, but this will change within a few days. The family and close friends may be rolling along smoothly, too, and you may even get unexpected surprises in the form of love and/or money through those channels as well. As the month moves on, you may find that your emotions get challenged for a few days, as Mars retrogrades, but in general, the theme of adaptation continues until the beginning of October.
Libra (Autumnal Equinox to approx. October 21st): Challenges may be present when it comes to money through the house or your immediate loved ones when September starts, but neither of these will last long. You may feel tenser than normal, or be more accident prone if you’re not careful, so it would be wise to take things slow and careful. You may also find this is a good time to make the appropriate career changes. As September moves closer to your birth sign, you may see that optimism builds, and that your emotions are stronger than normal, in good ways. You may also find money comes your way through your creative endeavors, and if you take a chance, you may receive good fortune. Your love life may also improve. Continue to watch for accidents and a short temper, though.
Scorpio (Approx. October 21st to approx. November 21st): Of all of the signs in the zodiac, you may find yours is the one that is sitting the prettiest when September begins. You may find that the day-to-day workplace is rolling along nice and smoothly, which is positively feeding your overall direction in life. You may also find that communication is going well, your emotions are good, and that love and money are doing well, too. The only caution is that if you are not careful, you may get too carried away with your energy and emotions, so it would be wise to stay grounded. As September progresses, it is worth noting that things will change from being *that* good, but will still continue to be at least decent. In later September, you may find it wise to play things conservatively when it comes to taking chances and regarding your romantic life. You may also find it wise to focus on inner healing.
Sagittarius (Approx. November 21st to Winter Solstice): Challenges in the workplace, revolving around communication, may be the main theme for the beginning of September. However, you may also find your emotions are out of sorts, which could lead to problems with friends. On the plus side, you may have more energy than normal, and are in a position to do some inner healing when it comes to themes of where your attention is going, and why. As September progresses, you may find things get better all around, and that your personal relationships and money may all take turns for the better. You may also see that your intuition is sharper than normal, and that your optimism can carry you through.
Capricorn (Winter Solstice to approx. January 21st): Money may be tense right now, and this may also be true regarding your loved ones, so it would be wise to start September off conservatively and slowly, by focusing on the workplace, which is going quite well. You may also find your intuition is sharper than normal, but that your temper may be shorter, and you may be more accident prone if you try to force things. As September moves on, things go from solid and consistent, to challenging and demanding. This may especially be true when it comes to your personal relationships and friends. You may also find that situations having to do with justice and/or legal matters become challenged. Enjoy the first half of the month, because the second may get a little touch and go.
Aquarius (Approx. January 21st to approx. February 21st): Oh, Aquarians, you and your blessings. You may find that for the first half of September, you skate in under the radar, naturally avoiding challenges and other headaches the other signs will experience. You may also find you have more energy than usual, and it may be going towards healing and improving your life. As September moves forward, you may find things only get better in general, and that you no longer need to make the adjustments you had to make in the beginning of the month. Money may be tense in situations of chance and gambling, and your love relationships may be a little sticky for a week or two around equinox, but otherwise the month goes from good to great!
Pisces (Approx. February 21st to Spring Equinox): Tension may be the name of the game when September begins, and this may be highlighted by stronger than average emotions, and an intuition that is stronger than normal, too. However, your love life may be rolling along well, and you may also find you are in a position to receive blessings in the home life and with the immediate family. As we get closer to the equinox though, you may find your emotions get more challenged, and additionally, it is time to make a lot of small, minor changes, which are all in line with the Mars retrograde that is occurring. You may also find that the career is moving along well, and that you can rely on its consistency to be a fixed star for you to follow.
*ALL SIGNS* September 9th through November 14th, Mars will retrograde. This only happens approximately once every two years, and in this case it means Mars will be in its own sign for approximately six months, part of which is now through the end of the year. Mars in Aries, especially retrograde, tells us now is a good time to review where your energy is going and why. You may also find it wise to focus on any healing that you want to do discreetly, and to think about the things that are happening behind the scenes. Some of these should be brought to the surface, while other things shouldn’t. You may also find it wise to focus on spiritual healing, or healing having to do with the physical head and brain. Mars in its sign of Aries does tell us you can expect the aggressive situations in society to continue. However, if the focus of those working behind the scenes is on healing and peace, then now through the end of the retrograde this healing work is being done in quiet, for the greatest growth and good of all.
