Welcome to September, everyone! The month opens with a dark new moon in practical Virgo on Monday, September 6. Prioritizing your health that night will truly be ideal. New moons mark new beginnings, so take this time to break bad habits, like biting your nails and avoiding appointments, and creating new ones, such as staying hydrated, taking breaks from social media, and getting the sleep you need every night.
You’ll need that sleep because on Friday, September 10, romance planet Venus enters sexy and intense Scorpio. You’re encouraged to experiment with a new kink with a partner, or if you’re single, consider treating yourself to a sex toy that’s different from your usual solo lineup.
Although the heat may rise in the bedroom, no one will want a confrontation when warrior planet Mars enters diplomatic Libra on Tuesday, September 14. This transit helps you keep your cool and practice effective communication, even if you find yourself feeling a bit unmotivated to do either.
If you spent the night at home on the new moon earlier this month, take advantage of the full moon in dreamy Pisces on Monday, September 20, to go out and about with friends and loved ones. You’ll feel more apt than ever to romanticize your life, so plan a get-together with the main characters in your life or enjoy an epic date. Libidos will also be high that night, so anything could happen.
When Libra season begins on Wednesday, September 22, seize the opportunity to define your relationship — Libra is the sign of balance, justice, and partnership, after all. At this time, you’ll also consider finally having other delicate discussions you’ve been meaning to get to with a partner, boss, or even a family member.
On Wednesday, September 22, the Fall Equinox comes along, which is a time when the days and nights are equal. You’ll be encouraged to find balance in your life. This day is also a celebration meant to help let go of the past, including, but not limited to, finally moving on from your ex or quitting a job that’s no longer bringing you joy.
You may even want to block your ex’s number while you’re at it because Sunday, September 26, brings the start of Mercury retrograde and the return of lovers past. Don’t you dare be the ex who returns from the grave or accept anything from ones that resurrect in your life. Also, avoid any miscommunications at work by double-checking your emails, reading the fine print, and carefully stating your point in meetings. Keep reading for what September means for your sign.
