September begins on a positive note as Venus enters Virgo on the 4th. This transit brings a dash of pleasure, joy, and sweetness into everyone’s lives. When Venus is in Virgo, it puts a magnifying glass on our relationships with others — friends, family, peers, and partnerships. You may find yourself overanalyzing your loved ones; you should avoid pinpointing their flaws and pay more attention to the little details that you tend to overlook and take for granted. It becomes easier to talk to your loved ones in straightforward and practical ways. In romance, you could be craving stability while also maintaining your sense of independence. You feel more attracted to those who are reliable, down-to-earth, and health-conscious.
On the 9th, Mercury goes retrograde for the rest of the month, until October 2nd. Be aware of miscommunication, technological failures, and delays in plans. Take this time to reflect, think before you speak, and possibly reconnect with old friends. The following day is a full moon in Pisces. Full moons typically represent extroversion, but taking place in Pisces means that you may want to spend this full moon in solitude and silence. Allow yourself to dream, to make art, and to escape the world by indulging in fantasy. It could be a very lucky day if you relinquish control and allow the universe to unfold in its own terms.
The 22nd marks the start of Libra season. As we exit independent Virgo season, you may suddenly find yourself craving partnership, whether that’s through romance or a best friend. Concluding the month is a new moon in Libra on the 25th — this is a great day for signing a new contract or tackling legal matters. You could also be embracing a new beginning with a love interest or business partner. Justice is extra favorable for those with good karma.
