If you depend upon another it will lead to a loss today. Temporarily suspend the need to be 'Mr/Ms Perfect'. Get back in touch with yourself - your own instincts - and trust the flow of the joy in your own nature.
Monthly HoroscopeSeptember 2023
Happy birthday, Virgo! There are some exciting energies bringing you favorable circumstances this month. Venus will station direct in Leo on September 3, finishing a cycle that began on July 22. You’ll be ready to put your creative ideas to work. In addition, Mercury will station direct in your sign on September 15, which will bring you the clarity you’ve needed to make an important decision. The second half of the month will be ideal for taking action towards a new dream.
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 help you to connect with your inner wisdom and spiritual guidance. In the coming months, you could be drawn towards some classes or studies that provide a sense of fulfillment you’ve been missing from your life. Astrology, tarot, or other modalities of self-exploration will be favored.
September’s New Moon will be on the 14th at 21 degrees of Virgo. If you were born on or around this date or have around 21 degrees Virgo rising, this New Moon indicates major life changes in the year ahead. All Virgo folks should think big when setting their intentions for the coming year, however. This New Moon in your sign is offering support for all of your personal goals!
The day after the New Moon, on September 15, Mercury will station direct in your sign, ending a cycle that began on August 23. You likely felt this Mercury retrograde quite intensely, since Mercury is your planetary ruler. If you’ve felt out of sorts and have been hoping to feel productive again, you can plan for things to come together during the second half of the month. Your usual take-charge attitude should be back in action after Mercury stations direct.
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 particularly supportive for your business connections and finances. Balance your budget and take time to be grateful for what you have.This will be a fortuitous time to negotiate fair work agreements.
The Full Moon September 29 will be at 6 degrees of Aries, lighting up your 8th house of intimacy and shared resources. This could be a passionate time for your love life, and a joint project may bear fruit. Emotions might be running high, so take a step back and review tense topics a few days after the Full Moon has passed.
