HOROSCOPES AND MORE…
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.
