Monthly HoroscopeSeptember 2023
You might feel as if there’s a lot going on this month, Cancer. However, the vibes this month should lead to a lot more productive action than you’ve been able to take in the past month or so. Venus will station direct on September 3, finishing a cycle that began on July 22. This will bode well for your finances and you’re apt to feel a bit more cash flowing your way. Mercury will station direct on September 15, which will make it much easier to coordinate with others and get from A to B.
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 the opportunity to connect with people from your past, and you may feel that you’re reviving a dream together. New beginnings are certainly on the horizon, but you may have to make use of your existing resources and connections between now and the end of the year.
September’s New Moon will be on the 14th at 21 degrees of Virgo, offering support for intentions related to writing projects, clear communications, thinking clearly, and learning new skills.
The day after the New Moon, on September 15, Mercury will station direct, ending a cycle that began on August 23. This Mercury retrograde cycle was extra potent because it was occurring at the same time Venus was retrograde. With no inner planets in retrograde during the second half of the month, you’ll be supported to initiate some new plans. Start slowly and take a thorough approach, as we’ll be clearing the shadow phase of these retrogrades. You may still have to clarify your intentions with others, but by month’s end you’ll probably feel the satisfaction of experiencing motion in an area that’s felt stuck.
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 wonderful time to gather with family members and share your gratitude for each other with a delicious meal. Make a list of the three main gifts that the universe has blessed you with at this point in your life.
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 June 28, of any year, or have around 6 degrees Cancer rising, you could be pushed out of your comfort zone into a new situation. Embrace the opportunity, as it may be just what you need to overcome procrastination. All Cancer people can use the power of this New Moon to set intentions related to their career, public image, and long-term goals.
