VIRGO AUG 24 – SEP 23

SEPTEM­BER WILL OF­FER PLENTY TO THINK ABOUT WITH MER­CURY AT HOME IN VIRGO FOR HALF THE MONTH. USE YOUR EX­TRA-SHARP WIT TO AT­TRACT WHAT YOU WANT AROUND SEPTEM­BER 7 AND 15. A FRIEND OR PART­NER COULD FEEL LOST AND CON­FUSED ON SEPTEM­BER 7 AND 13, SO CON­SIDER LEND­ING THEM YOUR EAR. MARK YOUR CAL­EN­DAR ON SEPTEM­BER 9 FOR THE AR­RIVAL OF THE NEW MOON IN VIRGO – IT’S AN IDEAL TIME TO CARRY OUT RIT­U­ALS THAT BRING YOU PHYS­I­CAL AND MEN­TAL RE­NEWAL. BY SEPTEM­BER 21, IDEAS ABOUT MONEY WILL BE READY TO MA­TE­RI­ALISE ONCE MER­CURY SWINGS INTO LIBRA.

LIBRA SEP 24 – OCT 23

Resid­ual themes around fam­ily linger through­out the month (es­pe­cially on Septem­ber 8 and 25). It might feel like some­one is putting up a wall to keep you out, so be mind­ful about blame shift­ing (from ei­ther side). Make an ef­fort to con­sider mul­ti­ple per­spec­tives and keep your heart light to close the dis­tance be­tween you and oth­ers. Put an X on Septem­ber 24, when the full moon in Aries is likely to of­fer a mo­ment (or two) of un­usual pas­sion and ro­mance.

SCOR­PIO OCT 24 – NOV 22

Self-care is a must when Venus, the planet of love and beauty, tran­sits through Scor­pio, start­ing Septem­ber 9. The most mov­ing plan­e­tary as­pect of this month is the op­po­si­tion be­tween Venus and Uranus on Septem­ber 12 – you’ll get a wake-up call in the re­la­tion­ship de­part­ment as you’re nudged to re­frame mat­ters of the heart. Ar­range­ments that have worked for you in the past are reach­ing an ex­pi­ra­tion date. Use this time to an­a­lyse past chal­lenges.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS NOV 23 – DEC 22

Al­though you have no is­sues pre­sent­ing a per­sua­sive and agree­able face to the pub­lic,

you will be en­cour­aged to gen­uinely ac­knowl­edge in­ner con­flict swim­ming be­neath the sur­face. Per­haps you’re over­sim­pli­fy­ing what you stand for in or­der to box your­self into a cer­tain brand. It’s okay to be com­pli­cated and con­tra­dic­tory in na­ture. Put an X on Septem­ber 7 and 13 to re­mind your­self that self-knowl­edge can be messy, but it’s also lib­er­at­ing.

CAPRICORN DEC 23 – JAN 20

Take a step back this month and med­i­tate on the im­age you project to your col­leagues. A chance to demon­strate in­dus­tri­ous­ness, in­de­pen­dence, and lead­er­ship could arise on Septem­ber 8 and 25, but be mind­ful about how you prove your­self if you want to avert a rep­u­ta­tion of com­bat­ive­ness. At month’s end, the full moon in Aries wel­comes you to re­flect on the ma­te­rial goals you har­bour for your home and hearth.

AQUARIUS JAN 21 – FEB 19

Mars re­turns to Aquarius on Septem­ber 10, giv­ing you the green light to put your men­tal and phys­i­cal en­ergy into some­thing that builds for­ti­tude. Feel­ing like your foun­da­tions are shift­ing could be a ma­jor dis­trac­tion to your pro­fes­sional goals on Septem­ber 12. You need to be ready to fight for what you want and half the bat­tle is in the mind. Put a di­ary re­minder on Septem­ber 25 to note that trial and er­ror are a cru­cial part of learn­ing, so don’t let the fear of mak­ing a mis­take de­ter you from go­ing after your call­ing.

PISCES FEB 20 – MAR 20

Head’s up: your dilem­mas this month aren’t lim­ited to ro­man­tic re­la­tion­ships, but to any­one you con­sider a part­ner. Your other half doesn’t have it all fig­ured out – they’re just demon­strat­ing their ground­ed­ness. The ar­rival of the dark moon in Virgo, on Septem­ber 9, will en­cour­age you to prune use­less branches of your re­la­tion­ships yet nourish the foun­da­tion. Con­sider adapt­ing your fluid na­ture to peo­ple and ideas that keep you rooted and of­fer sus­te­nance.

ARIES MAR 21 – APR 20

This month’s stars will en­cour­age you to take a stand for am­bi­tious pro­fes­sional goals but you might have to move past your dif­fer­ences with a part­ner to make progress. The full moon in Aries on Septem­ber 24 is a poignant re­minder to be dar­ing and chase your dreams. On the other hand, be sure to keep an open heart and mind around Septem­ber 23 and 27. Good vibes be­tween you and a close friend or part­ner could lead to a mo­ti­va­tional meet­ing.

TAURUS APR 21 – MAY 21

Your rul­ing planet Venus is busy mak­ing a round of con­nec­tions with sev­eral plan­ets this month, so ex­pect great ac­tiv­ity. On Septem­ber 8 and 12, cos­mic events will give you the urge to race to­wards long-range goals, which could up­set the del­i­cate bal­ance of or­der you crave, so you’ll need to find a healthy medium. Whether or not you in­tend it, this per­sonal transformation will shake things up for the peo­ple clos­est to you.

GEMINI MAY 22 – JUN 21

Shiny ca­reer prospects or ide­alised pro­fes­sional goals could lead you astray on Septem­ber 7 and 13, but the con­sis­tency of home and fam­ily will be the type of as­sur­ance you’ll be grate­ful to fall back on if your fan­tasies lose their glamour. On an­other note, fun and cre­ativ­ity will be­gin to weave their way into your work and ev­ery­day rou­tines. Look for in­spi­ra­tion around the 23rd and you’ll be sure to find a muse.

CAN­CER JUN 22 – JUL 23

The new moon in Virgo on Septem­ber 9 calls you to fo­cus on be­ing more present and tak­ing the time to process what’s go­ing on around you. Em­pa­thy and hon­est com­mu­ni­ca­tion are the key to nav­i­gat­ing on­go­ing ten­sion within your in­ner cir­cle (es­pe­cially on Septem­ber 8 and 25). Fo­cus on mu­tual in­ter­ests and try not to over-sat­u­rate your agenda. Emo­tional labour can de­mand more en­ergy than you might an­tic­i­pate.

LEO JUL 24 – AUG 23

The first half of the month guides your at­ten­tion to­wards your bank ac­count; be ex­tra mind­ful about pend­ing charges and about the terms of lend­ing and bor­row­ing. The sec­ond por­tion of the month cen­tres your fo­cus on per­sonal af­fairs. Ex­pos­ing your most au­then­tic self might sound scary, but the mav­er­icks in your life will act as the cat­a­lyst to some ma­jor life-di­rec­tion changes around Septem­ber 12. Re­mem­ber you’re not alone.
