Your September Horoscope Is Here, & These Dates Might Throw You Off Track

·10-min read


Autumnal sunsets, cooler temperatures, and pumpkin spice lattes are not the only things coming our way in September. The month ahead brings a fiery mix of emotions, plenty of moments to reflect on the past, and ultimately, a chance to start anew.

This month always fills us with new schemes we want to make reality, but September 6’s Virgo new moon will add confusion and uncertainty to our best-laid plans. Then on September 10 and 14, respectively, lovelorn Venus enters Scorpio and the action planet Mars enters Libra. This is a happy pairing: Venus and Mars will be in mutual reception of each other, meaning each planet is located in the sign that the other rules. Although Venus can be tempestuous in Scorpio, its mutual reception with Mars in Libra softens those vibes. Meanwhile, Mars is normally weakened in passive Libra, but the mutual reception lends the red planet power and tenacity.

The Harvest Full Moon in Pisces September 20 is a time for sentimentality and romance, and the Sun enters Libra on the 22nd, the same day as the Autumn Equinox. On this day, there will be even hours of day and night, which will set the balanced tone for Libra season. The only snag ahead is the Mercury retrograde that begins on September 27 and lasts until October 17 in airy Libra. This will be a time when we will struggle to find our equilibrium and footing in relationships, as well as our own personal paths, so move forward with care.

<strong><h4>Aries</h4></strong><br>Where do you start and another ends? The urge to merge with your significant other or crush will be on the forefront of your heart on September 10, due to Venus’s ravenous and deep glide into intense Scorpio. Although you are known for your independence, your desire for unfiltered and raw intimate passion will hit a high note when Mars moves into Libra on September 14. Often commitment comes with a price. It’s up to you to decide if you can adhere to the rules of the relationship. If you’re feeling like you need autonomy or freedom, then you can attain this during <a href="https://www.refinery29.com/en-us/2021/01/10283692/when-is-mercury-retrograde-2021-dates-times" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Mercury’s retrograde" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">Mercury’s retrograde</a>, which commences on September 27 and lasts until October 17, by changing up the dynamic of your relationship. <br><span class="copyright">Illustration by Stefhany Lozano</span>

<strong><h4>Taurus</h4></strong><br>Although your docile and calm nature usually makes you play by the rules that others have created in an effort to get along with the majority, it’s time to make your own mark on how the game is played — in business, love, and friendships. The Virgo new moon on September 6, followed by Venus’s entrance into Scorpio on September 10, offers you a chance to change the narrative in your personal life. Be the MVP of your life and don’t let anyone tell you what to do. If you want to colour outside the lines, do it. Learning to take chances and assert your views will boost your confidence and take you to places you never thought possible during September 20’s Full Harvest Moon.<br><span class="copyright">Illustration by Stefhany Lozano</span>
