If you depend upon another it will lead to a loss today. Temporarily suspend the urge for control. Get back in touch with yourself - your own instincts - and you will see the best path to take to ensure your personal security.
Monthly HoroscopeSeptember 2023
This will be a great month to recognize your own power and make things happen for yourself, Capricorn. Venus will station direct in Leo on September 3, finishing a cycle that began on July 22. You’re likely to feel more flow when it comes to connecting to loved ones. It will be a good month to put misunderstandings behind you and focus on the future. In addition, Mercury will station direct in Virgo on September 15—your mind will likely be feeling sharp and eager for new ideas during the second half of the month.
Jupiter will station retrograde in Taurus on September 4, initiating a cycle that will last until December 30. However, unlike inner planet retrogrades, Jupiter retrograde cycles are more subtle and don’t affect our day-to-day lives as much. It’s still good to be aware of Jupiter retrograde because we can make an internal shift during these times. This Jupiter retrograde cycle will offer you support for your creative ideas. It’s possible you’ve been waiting for other people’s approval when it comes to expressing yourself. In the coming months you’ll gain confidence when you work on a creative project by yourself, just for the fun of it. Once Jupiter stations direct, you may realize you’ve produced something you’re excited to share with others.
September’s New Moon will be on the 14th at 21 degrees of Virgo, in a favorable trine to your Sun. If you were born on or around January 12, of any year, or have around 21 degrees Capricorn rising, you’ll feel the most motivated to start something new. All Capricorn people can use this New Moon energy to set intentions related to expanding your life experiences, pursuing educational goals, and traveling.
The day after the New Moon, on September 15, Mercury will station direct in Virgo, ending a cycle that began on August 23. If you have important ideas to convey, wait until the second half of the month to initiate conversations or presentations. Once this Mercury retrograde cycle is over, you’ll have the ability to organize your thoughts in a way that will inspire others. You could be called to teach or train others, either formally or informally.
September 23 (Eastern Daylight Time) marks the Equinox and the Sun’s ingress into Libra. As the Northern Hemisphere enters the fall months and the Southern Hemisphere enters the spring months, the energy of Libra season will be felt all over the world. The days around the Equinox will be a powerful time to make professional connections and create goodwill in your workplace. If you have been needing to establish work-life balance, this time of year is ideal for a schedule reset.
The Full Moon September 29 will be at 6 degrees of Aries, in a tense square to your Sun. If you were born on or around December 29, of any year, or have around 6 degrees Capricorn rising you’ll feel especially energized at this Full Moon. All Capricorn folks may find that their home and family life is being highlighted at this time. You could be noticing your need for time to yourself to pursue your individual interests. Support those around you to be independent and do their thing. You may realize the need for a home-related project in the near future.
