Monthly HoroscopeSeptember 2023
September will be a good month to feel the tension easing in your life and get back in the flow. However, the month could have a slow start, and you’ll need to keep your patience with other people. Venus will station direct in Leo on September 3, finishing a cycle that began on July 22. As we move through the month, you’re scheduled to make some favorable business connections. It will likely be easier to get on the same page with others at work than it did last month. In addition, Mercury will station direct in Virgo on September 15, helping you to make clear connections with others. The second half of the month will be an ideal time to network for business or pleasure.
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. Because Jupiter will be opposing your Sun during this retrograde cycle, you may find that you need to get out of your own way. If you have been blaming others for your lack of progress, the coming months will offer you an opportunity to look within and identify the power you have to change your circumstances.
September’s New Moon will be on the 14th at 21 degrees of Virgo, offering support for intentions related to your friendships, community, and big picture dreams. If you have Scorpio rising, this could be your Granddaddy Power Period, which is the most powerful time of the year for manifestation.

The day after the New Moon, on September 15, Mercury will station direct in Virgo, ending a cycle that began on August 23. Once Mercury is direct, you’ll have an easier time coordinating group efforts and making plans involving other people. If you have important meetings to organize, try to schedule them after September 15. If you must attend a business meeting during Mercury retrograde, keep the pace of conversation slow and be prepared to repeat yourself to clarify your intentions.
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 are ideal for contemplation and a review of the year thus far. Consider what you are grateful for and let the people close to you know how much you appreciate them.
The Full Moon September 29 will be at 6 degrees of Aries, highlighting your daily routines, work, and health. It will be easy to see where you need to apply your motivation and effort at this time. Perhaps some healthful habits are in order. Don’t wait for others to help you get started. Set up routines that you know will work for you and take charge of your time so you can achieve better work-life balance.
