With this month’s New Moon in Libra (Oct 8) and Full Moon in Taurus (Oct 24) both answering to love-and-values-oriented Venus, and Venus going retrograde on October 5, we can expect October to be a month of reevaluation. No matter if we’re being called to start something new or let something go, our focus will be on whether it’s worth it. This theme will apply especially to relationships, our sense of self-worth, our personal values, and our relationship to money. Venus retrograde in Scorpio (Oct 5-31) will ask that reevaluate our desires and the power dynamics within our most intimate relationships while Venus re-entering Libra (Oct 31) will ask that we reevaluate the relationships we share with others across the board.

Meanwhile, Scorpio season (Oct 23) will challenge us to dig deep and face our fears, own our shadows, sit with our emotions, and trust our intuition when it comes to connecting to ourselves and connecting with others. Truth, both acknowledging it and speaking it will be also a part of our journey this month, as communicative Mercury enters Scorpio on October 9, followed by a move into Sagittarius on October 31.

Monthly Horoscopes For September 2017

September.jpg
 

Aries: The planets never stop and nor do you, but this month the major focus will be on how you move and who you’re making moves with. Even though we’re entering the month with Mercury retrograde don’t expect September to start off slow, especially as a bevy of planets begin entering Virgo; your zone of health, work, and routine. With the Sun already in this zone, pulling your focus towards getting your sh*t together, Mars is follows along; moving into Virgo on September 5th. With your patron saint in the sign associated with details and dedication, you get the most accomplished this month by paying closer attention to the small day to day things in your life that you may normally want to avoid, like sticking to a schedule. In terms of health, Mars will be motivating you to take better care of yours. You may decide to start a new fitness program or a food detox plan. A note: between Mars entering Virgo and Mercury moving forward again in Leo (your zone of fun and creativity) beginning September 5th, you may be tempted to take on everything at once. However, doing so will easily lead to a burn out. Make sure you use the powers of Virgo to decide what warrants your time and energy and what doesn’t. This will be especially true when the Full Moon in Pisces lands in your zone of rest, healing, and retreat on September 6th.

Under the influence of this Pisces moon, you may find yourself pushed towards a place of surrender, which means giving up the need to control things you have no control over and spending too much time on things that rob you of your sense of fulfillment. In other words, let go. While this moon may have you in your feelings, take it as a cue to address your deeper needs. By the 9th, when Mercury moves back home to Virgo, the pace picks up again; packing your schedule with all sorts of errands and appointments. The key to staying on track will be to finish what you start and keeping things sweet and simple. When Venus arrives to the Virgo party on September 19th, this could be a good time for job hunting. Venus will be beaming her good fortune your way, especially alongside the New Moon in Virgo on September 20th. Tap the power of the new moon to help you with implementing new projects, improving your health, and better aligning with your purpose. When the Sun moves into Libra (your zone of partnership) on September 22nd, look to joining forces with others to help you get ahead professionally. And speaking of your professional life, having transformative Pluto in Capricorn moving forward again (September 28th) in your zone of career and achievement, you should feel a sense of being reborn when it comes to pursuing your goals and ambitions. On the 29th, when Mercury moves into Libra, look to connect with new people; especially those that can teach you something new.

Taurus: Ready? Set? Go, Taurus! Though we’re entering the month on the tail end of a Mercury retrograde, it won’t mean that September will be a slow-moving month, as the stars will be doing their share to help push you forward. The action begins on September 5th, with passionate Mars entering Virgo, your zone of romance, creativity, and adventure. With Mars revving things up, you’ll find that you’ll be craving more fun and excitement than usual. This is a good thing as Mars will help you to find the courage to try new things and avoid getting stuck on the same old stuff. That goes for love affairs too. With Mercury moving forward again in Leo (September 5th); your zone of home and family, you should have a clear idea of what you may need to release from your past in order to move forward. You may need to save some of those goodbyes for some of the people in your life, especially if they haven’t been the type you can count on. The Full Moon in Pisces on September 6th may highlight this as it illuminates your zone of friendships and alliances. At the same time, this moon may also show you where you could do more to give back to others or be more supportive of a friend. On the 9th, Mercury moves into Virgo; fueling your passion to learn something new. With Mercury’s help, you could decide to take classes in fiction writing, music, or find just the right outlet for your creative inspiration.

When Venus (your patron saint) arrives in Virgo on the 19th, you’ll find you’re in the mood for love, as the planet of pleasure cranks up the romance. If single and interested in making a love match, you could have plenty of opportunities to meet someone new over the coming weeks. Meanwhile, if you’ve already found the love of your life, Venus in Virgo could help to rekindle the flame between the two of you and perhaps bring up a convo about having children. On another note, having Venus working alongside Mercury, could also show you how to make some extra cash off a hobby or a creative skill. By September 20th, the New Moon in Virgo could help you to get in touch with your passion while pushing you to be a more authentic version of yourself. On the 22nd, the Sun moves into Libra (your zone of health, work, and routine) encouraging you to find more of a balance between your work life and your private life. This may mean scaling back on the hours at work, eating better, or making your environment clutter free. With transformative Pluto moving direct in Capricorn (your zone of travel and education) on September 28th, you may realize where you need to let go of outworn beliefs or philosophies in order to get the most out of life. On the 29th, Mercury joins the Sun in Libra, kicking off a busy yet productive period. Don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it.

Gemini: As you come out of August still feeling a bit wobbly, especially as Mercury (your ruling planet) spent most of last month retrograde, your goal for September is to make sure that you’re standing on solid ground before you move forward. You’ll receive some help with this mission as a bevy of planets line up in Virgo; your zone of home and family. With the Sun already in this zone, you may already be looking for ways to improve your sense of stability. When Mars moves into Virgo on the 5th, you may decide to move or upgrade your home to increase your peace of mind, or you may decide to enlist the help of a therapist to address any anxiety, anger, or sadness that may be keeping you off kilter. When Mercury begins moving forward again in Leo on September 5th, in your zone of communication and ideas, the delays and miscommunications you may have experienced over the last few weeks begin to subside. Hopefully, you were able to learn ways in which you could be more effective with your communication skills or where you may need to let go of an outdated perspective. On September 6th, the Full Moon in Pisces lights up your zone of career, fame, and achievement. Under the influence of this moon, you could decide to leave an unfulfilling position, or switch your career trajectory towards something that better aligns with what you really want; especially if you’ve been wasting too much time trying to make others happy. Since full moons also represent a culmination, you could find yourself on the receiving end of an award or another form of recognition.

By the 9th, Mercury leaves Leo and moves back into Virgo, which may have you thinking heavily about the past, as well as the relationship you have to people in your family. Having thoughtful Mercury traveling in this zone of your chart may ask you to challenge or examine your family’s belief system or traditions as a means of figuring out if makes sense to use them as a standard for living your own life. Though your home and family life improves when Venus enters Virgo on September 19th. With the help from the planet of pleasure and beauty, use this time for redecorating, organizing, and improving the comfort level of your home. This might mean parting ways with a bad roommate or doing something as simple as buying yourself a good pair of sheets. Though when it comes to investing in any big changes when it comes to your home or family life, look to the New Moon in Virgo on September 20th to help you with implementing your plans. On the 22nd, the Sun enters Libra; your zone of romance and creativity. With the Sun lighting up this area of your chart, it’s all about finding your confidence to be the true standout you were born to be.

On the 28th, transformative Pluto moves forward again in Capricorn, your zone of intimacy and finances, to help you put an end to the ways that you may be giving up your power. When Mercury moves into Libra on September 29th, it’s time to reconnect to the pleasure of learning.

Cancer: This month is largely about focus, determination, and learning the importance of finishing what you start. The lesson begins on September 5th, when motivating Mars moves into Virgo, your zone of communication. With Mars kicking your brain into overdrive and intensifying your craving to learn and crank out new ideas, you should find yourself eager to study, train, or working to turn a brilliant concept into something more tangible. However, instead of losing focus at the first sign of a challenge, the discipline of Virgo will help you to be more deliberate about the projects you start while developing a realistic plan to make them happen. This will be especially true when Mercury joins the party in Virgo on September 9th, teaching you the value of honing your craft, vision, and skills. Though with Mercury still in Leo (your money zone) until then, your job is to focus on ways you can improve your income. During Virgo season, that may mean looking for ways to make yourself more marketable and getting people interested in what you have to say. When the Full Moon in Pisces lands in your zone of travel, education, and opportunity on September 6th, you may find yourself bringing yourself a step closer to fulfilling a dream or seeing your name in print. However, the goal of this full moon, is to stir you out of places where you may have gotten too comfortable so you can continue to grow. You’re not only gaining courage to step out of your comfort zone but you’re learning how to best map your direction so you don’t get thrown off course along the way.

Meanwhile Mercury finishes its retrograde (also on September 5th) in Leo; your zone of identity and self-confidence. With the planet of communication moving forward, you should find yourself being able to move forward too. However, things may get a little emotional under the Full Moon in Pisces on September 6th, which lands in your zone of intimacy, finances, and rebirth.

On September 9th, when Mercury moves back into Virgo, it’ll be time to go over your bank statements, receipts, and expenses with a fine-tooth comb. If you’ve strayed away from your budget, Mercury can help you to get back on track.

With Mercury, your ruling planet, also leaving its retrograde position on September 5th, the confusion you may have been dealing with over the last three weeks will start to clear up. With Mercury in Leo for now and in your zone of rest, healing, and retreat – look to the next couple of days to help you with clearing out the mental garbage.

With the help of this moon, you could find yourself exiting a lifeless relationship or if single, this full moon can also help you with clearing the way for you to attract the love you desire.

By the 19th, Venus enters Virgo bringing opportunities for you to take on new clients within the health, service, or coaching industries. If you’re a writer or an artist, you may begin working with an agent to help grow and expand your audience. In matters of the heart, Venus could also help you along. Look to the New Moon in Virgo on September 20th to assist you with meeting someone new. If you’re already attached, you and your love could decide to tie the knot or take your relationship to the next level. When the Sun moves into Libra on the 22nd, it’s all about you and your partner’s resources. As such, September could have you teaming up to tackle debt or make a major joint purchase. If single, Libra season will be teaching you the importance of striking a balance between how much you give and take. While you don’t want to be afraid of vulnerability, you don’t want to be anyone’s doormat either. That’s why Pluto moving direct in Capricorn (your zone of friends and future plans) on September 28th, will be helping you to figure out where you may need to take back your power when it comes to the people in your life. Perhaps it may be time to cut certain people off. Meanwhile, all-or-nothing Pluto will also be helping you to get serious about pursuing your dreams, while pushing you to stay clear of anything where you’re just going through the motions. On the 29th, Mercury enters Libra and it’s time to take a long, hard look at your finances. However, money won’t be the only focus. Your feelings and your ability to voice them will be important too.

 

Here's What's In Store For May - May 2017 Monthly Horoscopes!

You should be feeling back on track this month as Mercury begins moving forward again in Aries, your zone of confidence and self-image, on May 3. With charming Venus (now in Aries) also back in this zone, you should have a better sense of what you want and where you want to go moving forward. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting a makeover too as you’ll be wanting a new look that matches your new outlook on life. Meanwhile, hosting Venus and Mercury in your sign means that you have the power of persuasion now, especially with Mars in talkative Gemini camped out in your zone of communication. With the help of this cosmic combination, it won’t be hard to win friends, influence others, talk yourself into an opportunity, or attract love. If you have something you want to promote, launch, publish, screen, or build an audience for – May is your month to do it, especially as the Sun enters Gemini on the 20th, followed by a New Moon in Gemini on the 25th. Writing, media, networking, and gathering new experiences will be your source of strength and good energy.

Before Gemini season arrives though, there’s some unfinished business for you to handle first thanks to the Full Moon in Scorpio (May 10) landing in your zone of finances, intimacy, and rebirth. Under this full moon, you may be pushed to put the kibosh on an intimate relationship that’s become more controlling or manipulative than supportive and nurturing. Meanwhile when it comes to your finances, you could be making a big step towards your financial security like purchasing life insurance or your own house. Either way, look to this full moon to help you find the courage to grow up in some way. The theme of money and the things you value will continue as Mercury enters Taurus, your zone of income and possessions on May 16. With Mercury here, it’s time to go over your financials and pay closer attention to the money going in and out of your bank account, as well as your perceptions around scarcity and abundance. It’s time to see the glass as half full instead of the other way around.

As your birthday season continues, you can consider this month to be a re-set of sorts, especially when it comes to your relationships, money, and the things you value. With Mercury moving forward again in Aries (your zone of rest, healing, and retreat) by May 3, you should be able to find the courage to let something you’ve been fearing go. With Mercury in one of the most sensitive zones of your chart, your intuition is spot now on, you just have to make sure you allow yourself to get quiet enough to hear it, especially with Venus in Aries calling you towards better self-care. Having Mercury in fearless Aries though, is like having that little voice in your head that tells you that you can do anything. It’s time to trust that voice, as it really means trusting yourself – especially as multiple planets begin lining up in Gemini, your zone of self-worth, income, and possessions. Mars in Gemini already kicked off the party last month, pushing you to be more demanding about getting the things that you’ve been working so hard for, while making sure others respect those demands.

And speaking of others, on May 10 a Full Moon in Scorpio lands in your zone of relationships, which may push you to end a bad relationship or force you to see someone close to you as they really are. If there’s been a drought in your love life, this full moon could also bring an end to that as well. By the 16th, when Mercury enters Taurus, your zone of self-confidence and self-image, your words will carry special power, so make sure you’re using them to speak what you want into existence. Be mindful of how you use phrases like “I can’t”, “I won’t”, “I don’t have”, “I am”, etc. On another note, you can use Mercury to meet and connect with others in a way that could lead to an opportunity or two. Prepare to sing your own praises. By the 20th, when the Sun enters Gemini, the spotlight turns back to your money and self-worth. It’s time to put yourself in spaces, working or not, that make you feel valued and productive. No more holding onto people or things out of fear. On the 25th, look to the New Moon in Gemini to help you with manifesting a new source of income.

 

Happy Birthday, Gemini! With a brand new year ahead of you and nearly half the cosmos behind you this month, you may feel like you can’t be stopped. This feeling is a good thing, Gemini as it may have felt like you’ve been swimming in molasses lately. Though the slow progress helped you to figure out where your energy is best spent. With Mercury moving forward again in Aries (your zone of friendship and future goals) on May 3, you succeed by paying closer attention to the company you keep both on and offline. With Venus back in Aries and in this area of your chart as well, there may have been some changes in your circle of friends, but you should be clearer on what friendship means to you. Simply put: if the people you know aren’t adding value to your life in some way, then what are they doing? With aggressive Mars currently in Gemini, your zone of confidence and self-image, you should be feeling assured and energized in a way that you haven’t felt for some time.

On the 10th, a Full Moon in Scorpio illuminates your zone of health, routine, and work. Under the influence of this full moon your personal boundaries continue to be an opportunity for growth for you as you may decide to call it quits on a job within a toxic or abusive work environment.

When Mercury enters Taurus on the 16th, it’s time for a mental sabbatical of sorts as your creativity and intuition only shine through when you give yourself enough quiet and solitude.

Taurus: This month it’s all about finding your way back to what makes you feel alive and reconnecting to  your own unique style. Though in order to do this, you first need to get clear about what moves you in the first place. Expect this to be your focus during much of the month as your ruling planet Venus goes retrograde (March 4th) in Aries, your zone of rest, retreat, and dreams. With Venus retrograde here, you’ll have to draw inward and tap into the more soulful part of you in order to figure out what really speaks to your spirit.

At this time, you could have a falling out with a friend that could lead you to draw closer or kiss each other goodbye.

On the 9th, aggressive Mars enters Taurus, your zone of rest, healing, and retreat.
