Virgo season is always a good time to think about the friends you hang out with and the groups you frequent. This is the sector of your horoscope ruled by Virgo. It may be time to work less and play more, at least some of the time, as September begins.
Your ruling planet Mars is in Virgo until the 15th and the Sun is here until the 22nd. Work alongside other people to be more efficient and effective. Delegate and outsource, get the right employees and team up with others.
It can be a lonely path if you’re working on your own or making big decisions with no-one else to bounce ideas off. The New Moon in Virgo on the 7th is an ideal date to reach out to friends or join a new group, club or society.
The Full Moon on the 20th is an excellent date to catch up with friends as the Sun & Moon cut across the Virgo/Pisces axis of the zodiac and social sectors of your horoscope.
Also, this is a good time to focus on your hopes and wishes and line up some new goals. It’s easy to get caught up in the rush of everyday life and not make time to focus on your hopes and dreams.
Neptune’s strong this month which can bring disillusionment or feeling unfulfilled. Try not to let this steer you off course, especially on or around the 2nd and 14th.
Down Time & Self Care
Also this month, you’re wise to balance your commitments carefully. Ideally, have one foot in the world and the other foot firmly placed at home or wherever you find quiet or solitude.
Libra season begins officially on the 22nd, the day of the Equinox when the Sun enters star sign, Libra. This year, the Sun is joined by other key planets in Libra and the most hidden sector of your horoscope throughout September. Here’s the pattern:
- Mars (your ruling planet) – from the 15th
- Venus (love/relating) – until the 10th
- Mercury (communication) – all month
Mars in Libra doesn’t want to be out & 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 wisely 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.
Love is intriguing this month with Venus in your star sign from the 10th onwards. Venus in Scorpio is seductive, passionate and potentially transformational.
Also, the lovers of the heavens, Venus and Mars, are in each other’s star sign: Venus in Scorpio & Mars in Libra from the 15th onwards.
In astrology, this is called mutual reception. It indicates that working together with a key person in your life can create strength in your partnership. You may complement each other by trading skills or taking it in turns to be supportive.
Reach out to other people this month, especially if you’re spending a lot of time on your own. Alternatively, if you have little space to reflect and be quiet, then create time for this in your life.
It’s in your personal space where balance is needed. Learn from Libra’s scales and honour Scorpio’s need for connection on a deep level.
Best dates for love & romance: 20th & 29th
Tricky dates for relationships: 17th & 23rd
The important Jupiter-Pluto connection peaks on the 11th but remains active throughout September, October & November.
This is a significant aspect for you as Pluto is your co-ruler. Pluto in Capricorn is a reminder that words have power so use them carefully. There may be an imbalance in your local community, whether you’re doing too much or too little.
Jupiter in Aquarius indicates that home and family are potential areas of growth and expansion. Alternatively, you might be leaving behind a community to embrace freedom.
