Scorpio Horoscope September 2023

mountains and lake, Scorpio horoscope

As the month begins, the planet of love and relating Venus turns direct in Leo and your career and vocation sector. This takes place on the 4th and Venus has been retrograde, i.e. on go slow since July 23rd, for the last six weeks. If you lost the support of someone influential during this period, reach out on the 4th. It’s a good time for making connections that can benefit you on your future path.

Venus rules women so consider how working alongside other women can help. When you get the support of the right people on your team or by your side, this makes a huge difference. Notice who’s a positive influence in your life and who’s not – events on or around the 17th & 29th could reveal more.

Mixing love and business isn’t wise this month. As Venus is your partner planet, this may be about your partner’s career or future path.

Community & Connections

The Sun is moving through earth sign Virgo up until the 23rd. Virgo rules your friends and group activities, your social, political, environmental and humanitarian alliances. It’s about your community and how you fit into the world.

When earth signs dominate, this is about people and connections. If you’re a typical Scorpio, you tend to favour your own company, but September’s astrology is calling you out into the world.

There’s a flurry of planetary activity in Virgo, urging you to reach out, connect and recharge your friendships. It’s a top month to get involved with a new group and find a way to help others and make a difference to people’s lives.

You may be writing more than usual as Virgo is the star sign linked to writing, ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication. Perhaps, you’re seeking to find a way to connect online or share your thoughts in a different context.

It could be an exceptionally busy month when you’re juggling numerous connections, networks, ideas and projects. If you’re a typical Scorpio, you like to go in deep, analyse your motives and other people’s motives on a deep level. 

Some of the connections you make this month could be powerful, for you or them. This might be a relationship with a coach, therapist or influencer. Or, perhaps you’re the one who’s stepping up your game. The connections you make this month could be long-lasting. Earth signs are in it for the long run and don’t give up easily. The 4th, 8th, 16th, 21st, 25th & 30th are positive dates to widen your circle of connections.

Mercury Turns Direct

Also this month, communication planet Mercury turns direct on the 15th. This is a significant turning point as it’s been an unusually chaotic Mercury retrograde phase since August 23rd.

You may find that news or information comes to light that’s been hidden. Mercury turns direct in Virgo and your friendship and group sector. Therefore, it’s a positive time to get things moving in these key areas. If you want to improve your social life, the second two weeks of September are the time to launch yourself into new activities.

This is doubly true as there’s a New Moon in Virgo on the 15th, the same day that Mercury switches direction. A New Moon is a symbol of new beginnings and an ideal time to take the initiative, launch a project or start something new.

Down Time & Self Care

Also this month, you’re wise to balance your commitments carefully. Ideally, have one foot out in the world and the other foot firmly placed wherever you find quiet or solitude.

Libra season begins officially on the 23rd, the day of the Equinox when the Sun enters star sign Libra. Yet this year, your ruling planet Mars is in Libra and the most hidden sector of your horoscope throughout September.

Mars in Libra doesn’t want to be out-and-about and active. Instead, the focus is on your inner life, when you may need more time and space to be quiet and reflective. Mars in Libra is peace-loving and passive rather than aggressive. 

Take care that you don’t channel any dissatisfaction inwards. Work actively on your inner state, whether you meditate, do yoga or follow a spiritual teaching. Learn how to keep your inner voice calm and use this period for self-reflection.

Sometimes, when there are key planets in Libra, you need to be vigilant about self-care. Or, perhaps you’re caring for someone close. Libra is, after all, the sign of relating. 

Even though you may choose to spend more time on your own in September, ensure there are people in your life who can support and advise you. Talk to a friend, a counsellor or coach. Or, if you’re a believer, talk to God.

Finally, on the 29th, the Full Moon takes place cutting across the Aries/Libra axis of the horoscope. You may have a major revelation during the Full Moon as this is about inner work and understanding. You may realise what works for you on a daily level and where you need to change things around. Aries is linked to both your work and your health.

If you work in a charity or volunteer, this is about being of service to others. This may include prayer and ritual, tapping into a deeper stream of wisdom that can help heal and soothe yourself and others.
