Monthly HoroscopeSeptember 2023
You’re likely to feel motivated this month, Sagittarius, particularly after the 15th. Venus will station direct in Leo on September 3, finishing a cycle that began on July 22. With Venus moving forward in a favorable aspect to your Sun, it will be a great month to make new connections and pursue educational activities. In addition, Mercury will station direct in Virgo on September 15, which should make for smoother sailing in your professional life.
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 could help you to make the most of what you have in the present moment. Instead of waiting for the ideal time to make yourself a priority, you’ll be called to do the best you can with your current schedule. As you begin to make even small amounts of time in your day for the things you enjoy, you’ll signal the Universe to send you more of what you want once Jupiter stations direct.
September’s New Moon will be on the 14th at 21 degrees of Virgo, offering support for intentions related to your career, public image, and long-term goals. If you were born on or around December 14, of any year, or have around 21 degrees of Sagittarius rising, you could be inspired to take action through challenging circumstances. Recognize the gift in any adversity, as it will help to propel you towards a favorable new beginning.
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 making progress at work. Any projects or communications that have been stalled out will likely gain momentum by the end of the month. Try to wait until after September 15th to make any long-range decisions.
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. You’re likely to feel quite energized by social activities around this time. Get out and about, as the focus will be on new friends and old. If single, it’s a great time to meet someone special through your circle of friends.
The Full Moon September 29 will be at 6 degrees of Aries, in a favorable trine to your Sun. If you were born on or around November 29, of any year, or have around 6 degrees Sagittarius rising you’ll feel especially energized at this Full Moon. All Sagittarius people could gain clarity about a romantic relationship around this time. Trust your instincts as you already know everything you need to know.
