Your September Horoscope: It’s Time to Get Your Sh*t Together, Love
Reveal your secret talents with a numerological portrait.
Now that we’ve closed August’s eclipse season, September brings us some optimum opportunities to take whatever we learned about ourselves back in August to the next level. Funnily enough, good old Mercury is still stuck in time out until September 5, giving unlimited chances to revisit, redo, reorganize and revitalize our lives. Mars and Venus will connect with Uranus this month—Mars and Uranus on September 2, and Venus and Uranus on September 18. Both days will bring you a happy surprise, something that could push you a little closer to your dreams. On the thirteenth, Venus and Saturn team up to give your love and/or money life a little boost. September 14 will give you a chance to dance with your shadows, as the Sun and Saturn are having a major showdown. Finishing this three-day emotional rollercoaster sandwich, Venus and Jupiter are blowing each other kisses on the fifteenth, helping you recover from whatever went down the day before.
This month’s full moon will fall in Pisces, reaping whatever energies you planted last February. Expect your intuition to be at 110 percent, so dream journaling is a must around September 6! It’s time to get your emotional health on fleek, because if it’s not where it should be, this full moon will make it super clear. For the new moon in Virgo on the twentieth, use whatever went haywire during Mercury in retrograde as a guide on what intentions you need to plant to make sure you don’t have a repeat. The month concludes with the sun and Mercury moving on to Libra, shifting our focus to relationships. You will feel a pick-up in your social life, so take advantage of it. The sun enters Libra on September 22, followed by Mercury on the thirtieth. You might have some hiccups from September 24 to 28; meditate on creating balance between your dreams and current reality. Don’t allow anyone’s bad vibes to influence your own sense of self-worth. Write affirmations on Post-its and stick them everywhere as a reminder that you slay, all day. Trust me!
