As summer gives way to September, and Mercury leaves retrograde, and we’re heading into a new season. Some of our favorite celebs are Virgos – Beyoncé, Cameron Diaz, Blake Lively, Pink, just to name a few… read on to see what the stars hold for your sign.
Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd)
It’s Virgo season, and the perfect time to make some decisions! Your usual aversion to change will fade away around the new moon on September 20th – and your choices will get some surprising support from an unexpected source. September 5th marks the end of Mercury retrograde, but be careful, because you’re not out of the woods yet. Criticism won’t sit well with you, but remember that you can still be your calm self even in the face of frustration. Make sure you extend your birthday celebrations for as long as possible, because you may also be helping someone close to you by bringing the fun!
Libra (September 23rd to October 22nd)
You’re so ready for the segue into Fall, so use the first week of the month, whilst Mercury is still in retrograde, to overhaul your life – or just your wardrobe! You’re great at saving time and being efficient, but don’t be afraid to rope in some friends for challenging tasks this month, even if they seem to slow you down. Life isn’t always a race! You’ll be feeling rebellious around September 27th, and don’t be afraid to follow your gut. Just don’t focus too much on external influences, as this month your thinking should be focused on you.
Scorpio (October 23rd to November 21st)
Scorpio, Mercury in retrograde has got you fast approaching burnout. Luckily, after the first week of this month you will feel less busy. Just try and keep it that way – no need to say yes to every plan. Work poses some interesting challenges this month, but don’t worry, your hard work will pay off. Adventure calls at the end of the month! There is travel in your future, but remember that being away does not always equal relaxation…
Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st)
Sagittarius, you set up your calendar nicely for this month of fun! Allow room for spontaneity though, you never know what’s around the corner. You may hit a slump, or some money woes, mid-month, but September 13th will revitalize you. You sometimes struggle to let go of the organizational reins – for your own sanity, it’s time to step back from a few projects and enjoy some chill time. After all, you’ve been non-stop all summer!
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 19th)
Roll up your sleeves Capricorn, it’s time for some DIY! You’ve got some stuff to work on, both at home and in your head, but it’s nothing a little time alone can’t fix. Take a day to yourself mid-month where you out yourself first, it occasionally pays to be selfish! September 22nd, and the equinox, will bring a valuable insight where it is most needed. Make sure you aren’t too thrown by lingering events from Mercury’s retrograde and the eclipse to notice it.
Aquarius (January 20th to February 18th)
Your creativity is on point this month babe! Make sure you aren’t too self-critical – be your own best friend when it comes to self-love. You may need to get in touch with your fiery side, as rare as that is. Someone will stand in your way around the equinox on September 22nd, and you will need to take a different tact. But, it is the perfect day to regain your balance after you’ve stepped out of your comfort zone. A sweet surprise is headed your way in the last few days of September, so make sure you take some pictures to record the memories.
Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)
People stay trying you Pisces, but this month you know exactly how to handle it. You may be gentle but you’re not a doormat, and you know how to make yourself heard. Your actions are likely to be blocked around September 24th by uncertainty, but if you ride it out it will all be golden in the end. Don’t be afraid to lean on people if you need to, you’re always there for your closest ones and they will happily do the same for you. This month brings a sweet escape, and plenty of treats – in several forms…
Aries (March 21st to April 19th)
It may be time to go off the grid for a bit Aries, before you get too overwhelmed. When you’re rested and revived, make sure you use this month to find a healthy balance in your social life. You won’t be forgotten if you say no to a few party invites for once! Your finances will take an interesting turn around the 18th, but don’t get carried away. Your insecurities are popping up unexpectedly, but don’t let them affect those around you too much. When in doubt, check in with a trusted friend.
Taurus (April 20th to May 20th)
