Your September horoscope is here—get ready for more 'personal transformation'

The zodiac signs and the full moon against a purple background

In September, the personal transformation we’ve been experiencing since the end of July continues, but it will adopt a different flavor! The intense changes we experienced in relationships cease around September 3, when Venus ends its retrograde. However, Jupiter begins its retrograde the next day, so the need to review our strategies for growth begins now and lasts until December 30. In particular, focus on anything meaningful that you started around mid-May, which is when Jupiter entered Taurus. 

Overall, September brings dreamy, lazy vibes due to Mercury also being retrograde until September 15, as well as the great hypnotic presence of Neptune. This month’s astrology invites us to rest and relax more, as well as focus on creative endeavors, especially between September 13 and September 23.

If by mid-month you are ready to implement healthier lifestyle habits in your life as a result of recent life changes, make your move on or around the September 14 new moon in Virgo. However, make sure you are very clear on what you would like to bring to fruition.

On September 22, a complete reset in energy is delivered by the Fall Equinox. Today is one of the most positive days of the entire year for setting intentions, beginning new projects, and making bold moves. This is the very beginning of Libra season, a zodiac sign that holds a spirit of initiation. Over the next four weeks, we will all be inspired to bring more harmony into our lives. Our desire to be social will increase now, and luckily, a lot of the mental fog we’ve been feeling so far this month will begin to dissipate.  

The month ends with a bang with the arrival of the September 29 full moon. Happening in fire sign Aries, this lunar event promises intensity! Around this time, it will be key to avoid impulsivity, as there will be an air of conflict within relationships. Under this energy, the connections that no longer give room for freedom and authenticity, might end.

What has transpired for you concerning finances since mid-May? When Jupiter starts its retrograde on September 4, it’s time to review your budget so you can have more control of it for the rest of the year. Once Mercury goes direct on September 15, you will be busy at work, so make sure to have your schedule and to-do list organized by now. Because when the Sun enters Libra on September 23, your focus will turn to creating partnerships that will help you at either work on your personal life. However, move with care at the end of the month, when the September 29 full moon brings the need to “talk things out” in a close relationship.

This could be a very positive month for you, Taurus—even with Mercury retrograde! Aha moments will be in store for you and your creativity will be lit! If a project or pitch didn’t quite gel for you in the past few months, try a different strategy at the September 22 fall equinox. Due to Jupiter going retrograde in your sign, over the next few months, you will receive many second chances to bring things to fruition, so don’t give up on any of your dreams! Lastly, book a massage or healing session around the September 29 full moon, as you will most likely need more pampering now.

A month of dual energies is in store for you, Gemini! Until September 15, you will be in a quiet and introspective mood, needing to spend more time alone at home to figure out a situation that’s been puzzling you. September 6 and September 8 are lucky days that can get you the answers you seek, so make sure to journal the ideas that arrive now! Once Libra season arrives on September 22, your social butterfly self returns, kicking off four weeks of fun! Do expect to run into some surprises at the September 29 full moon, when “taking the road less traveled” gets you more excitement and even better results.

You might notice a deep need to embrace either mystical or ritualistic practices this month as Vesta—the asteroid of spiritual devotion—enters your sign on September 13. The very next days are ideal for implementing them under the lucky new moon in Virgo. Then starting September 22, you could begin thinking about making some changes at home, perhaps remodeling a room or at least a little corner of your office. If possible, avoid having any big work around the September 29 full moon. An intense energy will impregnate the air, complicating processes. September is a great month to begin the prep work, but October might be a better month to implement any big remodeling jobs.

Venus (finally) goes direct in your sign on September 3, bringing the end of a major reinvention. Slowly but surely, you will be getting your mojo back, dear Lion! Between that day and September 12, you could even consolidate a new relationship or business as asteroid Juno inspires you to commit. If you have been really busy at work for the past few months, the pace will slow down now as Jupiter’s retrograde initiates a period of revision of the projects that you’ve been focusing on since the Spring. This more relaxed workload might even inspire you to book travel around the September 29 full moon… go for it!

Your planet, Venus, goes direct on September 3, slowly bringing any relationship dramas to an end. While the desire to be social will hit you, resting and saving your energy will be crucial during the first half of the month, Libra.

Hint: This year, embracing your intuition will be your number one ally during your current and significant process of personal change. Today, commit to a spiritual practice and feel your life slowly but surely aligning!

Good news could hit your inbox around September 3, which is when Venus goes direct in your career sector, Scorpio. A project that’s been on hold or that you’ve been waiting to hear about could finally gel between now and October 8. If you have a project to launch, make your move on the September 14 new moon, which will assist you in rallying help from associates and collaborators. Wellness is also highlighted for you this month with Ceres—the asteroid of nourishment—entering your sign on September 15. The last week of the month, in fact, would be an ideal time to perform a cleanse to purify your body, mind, and spirit.

This could be an exhilarating month that could catapult you to success in the future, Sagittarius! Mercury retrograde in your career sector will bring setbacks and delays with projects. However, if you invest time and effort in truly “fixing your strategy,” you will set yourself up for success. Starting September 13, asteroid Pallas will be helping you attract collaborators who believe in your product or project. September 23 will emphasize this even more, so this is a time to reach out to anyone who has the skills you now need. By the time October arrives, you should see big results for your efforts.

Are you considering taking a relationship to the next level, Capricorn? With Venus now direct in your intimacy sector, September 4, September 8, September 11, and September 21 are lucky days to make your move! Besides romance, career is also on your mind. With driven Mars awakening your ambition all month, you’re feeling fired up and ready to win! However, make sure you make all your key moves and have your important meetings during the first three weeks of the month. The last week of the month carries an intense energy, so during those days, it will be important to lay low and mind your own business.

Relationship dramas end around September 3, when Venus goes direct! The good news is that after this long period of revision, you will most likely seal the deal on a business partnership or romantic tie. September 4, September 8, September 11, and September 25 are lucky days to make your move! The travel bug might come to visit you when the fall equinox arrives, and if you’re due for a break, you might decide to make travel plans between now and the beginning of October. If you do, go for exotic and faraway destinations, as adopting a spirit of true exploration will bring new exciting ideas and experiences your way.

Sure, Pisces, Mercury retrograde during the first two weeks of the month might be annoying, bringing setbacks and lots of eye rolls. But if you look deeply, it’s creating the opportunity to “perfect your craft.” During the first part of the month, focus on beautifying any big projects you began back in the Spring of 2023. Do give yourself some time to rest or even take a short break between September 14 and September 23. Due to a strong activation of the planet Neptune in your sign, you could be feeling low energy. If you can’t take time off, at least clear your schedule so you can rest and sleep longer hours.
