Your September Horoscope Is Here — It’s Time To Find What You Truly Desire

·9-min read

New season, who dis? Embrace the changes that are coming this month with ease by allowing yourself to heal and make amends with the past. Ultimately, this will lead to a new attitude and perspective within — unlike anything we’ve experienced before.

The autumn equinox occurs on 23rd September, the same day the sun shifts into Libra. We can expect harmony, tenderness, and peace as we journey through the last week of September and await the harvest season. The air is getting colder, the leaves are getting crisp, and our hearts are overloading with sentimentality. 

The Pisces full moon on 10th September heightens our emotions and intuition, while bringing the unexpected out to play. The new moon in Libra on 25th September asks us to find balance and serenity in all of our relationships.

Mercury retrograde commences on 9th September in Libra and re-enters Virgo during its moonwalk on 23rd September. Watch out for miscommunications, travel issues, and other calamities. Moments before Mercury backpedals into Virgo, it aligns with the sun in Libra. This aspect brings us clarity and wisdom through the clouds of the retrograde.

Venus, the planet of love and money, enters Virgo on 5th September, then Libra on 29th September. This planetary transition between signs will make us want to be as pragmatic as we can about matters of the heart and finances in order to find what we truly desire.

<h2>Aries</h2>The planetary energy of the month ahead is asking you to transform your emotional reactions to situations and others. In order to do this, you’ll have to lean into the things that scare you during Mercury’s backwards spin and the full moon on 10th September. To be at peace with yourself, you will have to face your fears and treat them as a catalyst for growth. As the month progresses, it’s extremely important to own and accept your feelings. You must know yourself from the inside and out before opening up about the lessons and secrets you’ve learned during 25th September's new moon. If you choose to share them with others, make sure you trust your confidants in order to avoid judgmental behaviour from your peers.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Taurus</h2></strong>Broadening your mind isn’t hard, but dealing with people who don’t share your views can be. Before you jump down someone’s throat, hear them out and have a conversation about the situation during 10th September's full moon. Try not to be too judgmental — having an open mind means hearing out others POVs, even if you don’t completely agree. Mercury’s retrograde can escalate tensions, which is why you’ll have to simmer down before reaching a boiling point. Deep breathing or meditation can help calm your mood when you are stressed in the moment. If you want to confront or assert your ideology onto others, use the wisdom of 25th September’s new moon to make your point with a dose of charm to sway others to your perspective.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Gemini</h2></strong>Lately, you’ve been feeling as though you are “stuck in the mud.” As a result, frustrations and tempers will heighten. Rather than getting frustrated and annoyed, try to remember that this is only a moment in time. While it’s hard to get things moving, use the magical energy of 10th September's full moon as a moment to refine the course of action that you’re taking. Although Mercury is retrograde for the majority of the month, its planetary connection with the Libra sun on 23rd September is urging you to make major decisions when it comes to romance and investing money. With the onset of 25th September’s new moon, you'll be able to make important decisions that could benefit you greatly at this time.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Cancer</h2></strong>Sometimes it just feels good to let your feelings out and have other people understand you in a soulful connection. This month, you’re letting people know your innermost sentiments, due to 10th September’s full moon pushing you to speak your truth. Instead of avoiding your problems and hiding away in your personal cocoon, you are addressing the issues at hand (a healthy new tactic in handling your troubles, which is why it may be hard to do at first). By the time the new moon comes around on 25th September, you’ll create a stronger internal foundation and become more resilient. Remember to always use your voice to express yourself and speak up — even if you're typically shy in letting others know your real emotions.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Leo</h2></strong>Your energy is on building your empire right now, but instead of counting money, focus on the bigger picture. You may find that opportunities are free-flowing during 10th September’s full moon, provided you disengage from the minutiae of work and give your energy to the grand scheme of projects. Opportunities are on the way — be patient! Mercury’s backwards spin is delaying things from coming to fruition immediately. Remember, it’s OK for you to take a step back and relax. You’ll find that some R&R is exactly what you need to decompress over the next few weeks. When the whole world is busy, you will be happy unwinding at home with a hot bath, massage, and much-needed downtime during the new moon on 25th September.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Virgo</h2></strong>Mercury’s planetary moonwalk, along with the Pisces full moon will help to heal situationships, friendships, and the relationship that you have with yourself. It's also a wonderful time to closely examine power struggles and relationships that have been causing you a lot of anguish. Get the ball rolling in order to transform and evolve these partnerships, therefore ensuring that they become stronger. Anything and everything is open to discussion now, so use the cosmic energy to mend personal connections. You’ll begin to feel the powerful, transcendent shift in your heart when Venus gives you the sentiment of love, as it glides from your sign Virgo (it’s been there since 5th September) to Libra on 29th September. Of course, 25th September's new moon exacerbates such feelings.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Libra</h2></strong>Although you’ll find yourself looking at old scrapbooks and photos from your youth, you are not in the mood to divulge your findings with others. It’s totally OK to keep your feelings private, even just for now. Write long emails in place of vocalising your sentiments when Venus moves into Virgo on 5th September and Mercury retrograde connects with your sun on 23rd September. You’re healing all the parts within yourself that you haven’t ever dealt with, so give yourself plenty of TLC and time to work through matters during 10th September’s emotionally charged full moon. Use your intuition, wits, and heart to guide you towards healing yourself — which will make you feel complete and confident during 25th September’s new moon and Venus’s alignment with your sun on 29th September.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Scorpio</h2></strong>All is fair in love and war, but your impulsive behaviour is holding you back from winning. Rather than acting out in a moment of passion during 10th September’s full moon, rein in the drama and plan your next moves strategically. This will ensure that you make the right choices to get the end result of what you truly want. Instead of focusing on past heartaches in relationships, look towards creating a fresh start with the person you’re partnered up with or currently crushing on. You may consider having a heart-to-heart with them. Finding a middle ground is key, as you will both be able to connect on a deeper level and plan on rekindling the intense romantic connection on 25th September’s lovely new moon.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Sagittarius</h2></strong>Although you are a kind-hearted and compassionate soul by nature, you’re wanting to give even more to those in need during 10th September's full moon. Your generous spirit will open your wallet freely and bestow presents to the charities that you care deeply about. When it comes to philanthropy and humanitarian endeavours, you'll want to help everyone without expecting any praise in return. This sentiment is going to push you towards making an anonymous donation to a cause that speaks to your soul. If you’re looking to raise extra cash, organising a fundraiser on social media will boost the amount of money that you can donate. Connecting with your local community for a cause is beneficial during 25th September’s new moon.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Capricorn</h2></strong>The full moon on 10th September creates a megawatt of power and energy that will bring up intense feelings in the weeks ahead. This will make you want to take action around relationships — in good and bad ways. Deciphering who’s healthy and not will be a core theme now. Learning how to let go of those who are not serving our best or highest interests will bring up emotional challenges, power struggles, and love triangles with others (control is an important sentiment to note). Not having authority or dominance over others will tilt you off your centre and create conflicts to occur within yourself. During 25th September’s new moon, you’ll uncover truths that you didn’t see coming. Fasten your seatbelt; it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Aquarius</h2></strong>The moment you unwind and relax, you will be able to find your very own peace of mind, which will give you the strength to get through the month with ease. During 10th September’s full moon, you might want to consider taking a healing path to detox your auric field and shed a lot of the anxieties you’ve been carrying around. If you’re looking to manifest, then it’s wise to focus on self-care and activities around building up your confidence. The more you give to yourself, the better you’ll feel: Think of your body as a vessel of energy that needs lots of love. Always put your physical, mental, and emotional needs first above everyone else's to ensure that you can find your own moments of calm.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>
