MONTH OF September

How about some play with all that work, Leo? August may not have offered many breaks, but September could make up for lost time. Don’t get us wrong: Virgo season WILL keep you busy. With the Sun in your productive and profit-centric second house until September 22, your to-do list is top of mind. But with energizer Mars taking a super-long trip through Gemini and your collaborative, communal eleventh house (from August 20 until March 25), the next six months will find you in great company! The more the merrier…and the more motivated.

Of course, even the best-laid Leo plans could hit a snag this month, thanks to SIX retrograde planets messing with the dials. With all five of the outer planets—Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune AND Pluto—in powered-down retrograde mode this September, stepping back to evaluate your path is a wise move. When Mercury, ruler of communication and technology, joins the retrograde parade on September 9, the rest of the month is best used to explore and experiment thoroughly before you commit to any firm direction. 

Get cracking! It’s Virgo season until September 22

Back to reality, Leo! September is one of your most practical and productive months as the Sun moves through Virgo and your stabilizing second house until September 22. Use the time to recover from Leo season and all its attendant decadence. Maybe it didn’t quite reach Bennifer’s double-wedding levels, but hopefully you got to have SOME well-deserved fun.

This month, you can start building your birthday visions into something tangible—and potentially profitable—as back-to-school season begins. But take your time with the planning process. Mercury will turn retrograde on September 9 (more on that in a moment), which could cause disruptions to technology and communication. Hidden details might emerge that could change the course of your projects. Focus on gathering information and key players before you rush to implement.

Mercury is retrograde September 9 to October 2

Rewind! Autocorrect! Stronger filters, please! Mercury—the planet of communication, technology and travel—will turn retrograde from September 9 to October 2, splitting its time between two signs. 

Mercury will back through Libra and your third house until September 23, foiling interpersonal affairs and communication for its first two weeks. It might feel like a double-strength retrograde at moments, and you’ll want to take the utmost care with every word you post or utter. If you’re not sure whether you should write, publish or say THAT…don’t. Run any big decisions by your wisest sounding boards; their feedback could help you massage your message. The third house rules siblings, neighbors and anyone in your social circle, so be extra mindful to avoid misunderstandings in these relationships.

The usual Mercury retrograde precautions merit your attention, too. Back up all data and devices. Avoid signing contracts if you can (and triple-check that fine print while you’re at it). If you’re considering buying anything with wheels—car, e-bike, scooter—shop around and conduct your research.

On September 23, Mercury will back into Virgo and your second house of work and money until correcting course October 2. Keep firm tabs on your finances and avoid hot-button conflicts at work. Save your most important files to the cloud and be crystal-clear around deadlines and financial and other agreements made with clients or coworkers.

Deep dive! The September 10 Pisces full moon gets intimate 

The September 10 full moon lands in Pisces and your focused eighth house of intimacy, merging and detailed work. All the more reason to take a sharp-eyed look at the finer points instead of just getting swept up in the moment. This full moon illuminates your closest ties and asks you to consider which ones can go the distance. Is there a requisite amount of trust and an equitable investment of time, energy or money? If one of you is pulling more energetic weight than the other, the full moon will demand that you address that.

Have you been considering a joint venture or a binding relationship? This extreme full moon could send you all the way in…or totally out. An engagement, pregnancy or permanent partnership move is possible now. You might also decide to make a big investment, perhaps buying or selling property or building your portfolio. The illuminating full moon helps you inspect any important technicalities you may have overlooked before you cross the point of no return! 

Caution: With Mercury now retrograde, caution is warranted before making anything official (including cutting anyone off). A cooling-off period or an extended round of negotiations could buy you some time. Better decisions are likely with more time, so hold off until next month to make a final call if you can.

It’s Libra season starting September 22, with a September 25 Libra new moon

Some lightness returns on September 22 as the Sun moves into Libra for a month, heating up your third house of communication and community. Although Mercury will still be retrograde (and soon in your work and money house), you can escape the mayhem by meeting friends old and new for apps and after-work drinks, checking out local festivals and enjoying all the pumpkin-spiced pleasures of fall. You’re not afraid to be called “basic” if it means you get a kick out of hayrides, apple-picking and a chance to make your own silk-ribboned potpourri sachets. (Okay, that might be pushing it…or maybe not?)

The September 25 Libra new moon could bring an exciting conversation or opportunity to join forces with a kindred spirit type. Who knows what you can create when you put your heads together? New moons can take up to six months to unfold, so explore your chemistry with collaborators before making anything official. Try a small project and see how that goes, especially given that Mercury is retrograde until October 2, and some details or information could be hidden until then. 

With this new moon opposite Jupiter in Aries and your hyper-optimistic ninth house, you could bite off a chunk more than you can chew. (Never done that before, right, Leo?) Pace yourself and do things in phases. Even if you can see a bold, brilliant vision of a global empire, the foundation should still be built one brick at a time—at least for now.

Keep things loose or make it official? You could be torn between both headspaces this month as the love planets, Venus and Mars, visit contrasting signs. While Venus in your stabilizing second house wants to commit, lusty Mars is in Gemini and your freedom-seeking eleventh house for an extended trip from August 20, 2022, until March 25, 2023. The emotionally detached energy of this Mars cycle could make you a little wishy-washy and restless over the next six months. Anyone who tried to fence you in with rules and demands will NOT win your favor!

Spicy Mars in this unconventional part of your chart could whet your appetite for a walk on the wild side, especially in the boudoir. But with romantic Venus in Virgo and your grounded second house from September 5 to 29, your sensible side would probably put the kibosh on anything too experimental. You’ll feel this tension strongest on September 16, when Venus and Mars lock into an embattled 90-degree square. One minute you’re an OG traditionalist; the next you’re rebelling against every rule! Proceed with a spirit of both curiosity and caution if you’re going to color outside the lines of your current relationship comfort zone.

Sure, a frisky romp might sound appealing on paper, but in reality, a whole host of feelings can crop up now, from jealousy to fear of abandonment to possessiveness. Keep drama to a minimum by being authentic about where you’re at instead of trying to be cool when something is actually bothering you, or by going along to get along.

It’s hustle time, Leo! With the Sun and values-driven Venus in Virgo and your productive, profit-driven second house until September 22, money’s on your mind. But don’t just look ahead for opportunities. With six planets retrograde, including Mercury (and in your finance house from September 23 to October 10), your past could bring prosperity. There may be money hiding in plain sight—checks owed to you, a former client that has a side project, a job offer from an old employer. Look “back to the future” if you need a change!

When the September 10 Pisces full moon beams into your eighth house of investments, you could make a savvy move—no matter how big or small—toward long-term security and solvency. If you’re home-hunting, these moonbeams could help you score a sweet real estate deal. This full moon has “joint venture” written all over it. However, you’d be wise to wait until Mercury retrograde ends on October 2 before you move forward with any binding agreements since this can be an unfavorable time to sign contracts. Make sure to read the fine print, and if need be, hire an attorney.

When the Sun moves into Libra and your social third house for a month on September 22, multitasking mania can easily creep in, along with an overloaded dance card. Sign up and RSVP only to the events that are aligned with your goals—no guilt allowed! The Libra new moon on September 25 could bring another opportunity to link up with a synergistic person on a shared project.
