Your September Horoscope: Summer Might Be Ending, but the Fun Is Just Beginning!

Here’s your September 2018 horoscope! Read up, and then go forth and conquer the WORLD! You’ve got this.


Take better care of yourself under the September 9 new moon. With no extra thought or planning, you can eat better and be more active in a smart and sensible way. Feel good, address what’s real, and don’t be tricked by any imaginary ailments.

Mars leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius on the tenth. Stay active in any career efforts. Rather than trying to create opportunities, position yourself better and let the opportunities come to you. 

Mars squares Uranus on September 18. Every new and sudden turn of events may not work out in your favor, so exercise a bit more caution and judgment.

Love is the answer with the full moon on the twenty-fourth. Let someone’s affection work its magic and be the cure that’s needed to heal a slight or misunderstanding. Be willing to listen. 

Finally, the sun trines Mars on September 27, and you could see a very lucky break if you stay smart about it.

Standout days: 13, 20, 23

Challenging days: 5, 8


Venus squares Mars on September 8. Love and passion may not be on the same page today. A relationship could temporarily get rocked or bumped now. Don’t be rash.
