Welcome to September lovers! This month we flirt with anticipation, as we shift out of sweaty summer into everyone’s beloved fall, allowing ourselves to get curious about what new energy awaits in the upcoming months. Virgo is the planner of the zodiac, and it’s no coincidence that this season bridges space between summer break and back to school. This grounded earth sign is ready for change, but understands that progress is slow and steady, preferring to focus on being of service to the ones they love. What are you ready to put your attention and work into?
Although the sun may be hanging out in analytical Virgo, Venus spends the month finishing her tour through romantic Libra, adding balance and beauty to our love lives before she dives deep into suspicious and seductive Scorpio on September 10th. Harness all of the Virgo energy to take action on your goals before Mars parts ways with the sun and shifts into Libra. Mars in Libra is more passive, pleasant, and partnership focused, which can be great for romance and focusing on partnerships in general. Try to stay flexible, as commitments made this month may be up for review next month, as Mercury retrograde begins on the 27th. Progress is happening, albeit in a non-linear fashion, asking all of us to enjoy each moment and stay as present as possible rather than waste energy future tripping.
Virgo & Virgo Rising (August 23-September 22)
Happy solar return Virgo! Share yourself with others this month, especially if you spent the last month plotting behind the scenes. Those who care about you are curious about what you’ve been up to, go ahead and post some selfies, sharing your joy isn’t bragging. You may be particularly focused on dating and romance this month under Venus’ influence, you are extra sparkly this month and others are noticing, go ahead and take the risks that feel scary. Fear is always a good indicator that you’re on the right track, expansion asks you to leave your comfort zone in order to enjoy your glow-up.
Libra & Libra Rising (September 23-October 22)
Are you prepping for something big, Libra? Whether it’s redesigning your wardrobe, revamping your resume, or doing some deep soul searching, the work is happening behind the scenes this month. Ride the waves of excitement and inspiration while playing your cards close to the chest. It’s ok to take your time before committing to anything or anyone. Rather than wondering what your crushes are thinking, consider what you really think of them. Do your current relationship dynamics work for you, or are you playing along in order to avoid making waves? You won’t get what you don’t ask for.
Scorpio & Scorpio Rising (October 23-November 21)
Widen your circle this month, Scorpio. Your motto is usually ‘no new friends,’ but this is a great time to tap your social network for introductions to potential partners. Even if you have sworn off online dating in the past, enlist the help of a trusted pal to help you take some sexy new pics and update your profile. For those already coupled, it’s time to get creative with date nights. Take turns sharing and acting out one another’s fantasies. Sex with the same person doesn’t have to be routine, it’s an opportunity to take what you’ve cultivated and push the boundaries.
Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising (November 22-December 21)
Summertime sadness is over, Sagittarius. Now it’s time to work it, on every level. Refocusing on bossing up about what you’re passionate about will get you much further than wasting energy on the disappointments of the past. You know better than anyone that you want to go places, and that requires you to point your arrow in the direction of where you want to go rather than on where you’ve been. This month is here to help you focus and get excited again about the relationships and projects that are asking for your attention. What and who turns you on the most is exactly where you should be putting your energy.
Capricorn & Capricorn Rising (December 22-January 20)
Expand your vision, Capricorn. What have you been dreaming about doing? This is a great month to set goals, make your vision board, and start taking some action steps towards what you really want in your life. Think about more than just your career, think about your community, your legacy, and your love life. What relationships would you like to cultivate right now? How can you bring balance to every area of life and still feel deeply satisfied with your efforts? Building an empire can only be done when you’re leaving room for pleasure and rest, give yourself plenty of both.
Aquarius & Aquarius Rising (January 21-February 18)
Let your kinkiest ideas take center stage this month, Aquarius. You’re more open minded than most, and that can be very helpful in your partnerships, as you hold open new doors for your lovers to walk through without shame. Push the envelope this month in your relationships, and treat yourself to the sex you really want to be having. Flirtation can start out innocent and friendly, establishing comfort and consent before you shock your lovers with your freaky fantasies is your signature move, and everyone is here for it.
Pisces & Pisces Rising (February 19-March 20)
Partnerships are emphasized this month, Pisces. You may find yourself torn between wanting love and wanting freedom, who said you had to choose? The more you honor the fluctuations of your desires, the more your authentic self shines for the right partners to see you. The sun in earthy Virgo opposes your sign, bringing much needed grounding to your visions. Trust where you are is the right path, even if it doesn’t appear nice and neat. What or who makes your heart feel full? What or who leaves you feeling empty? Sift through your feelings and you’ll find the answers within you, you know yourself best.
Aries & Aries Rising (March 21-April 19)
Sexercise is a thing, and it’s your thing this month, Aries. TBH, your overall health is where you’ll be focusing your energy, and sexual wellness is a huge part of taking care of yourself. Developing healthy habits and practices will take you far, and set you up for the approaching seasons. Putting an emphasis on pleasure is a fun way to approach fitness and bonding with your partners, and yourself. Down time and rest are necessary to recharge, slipping your sexy time into your self-care routine can take your morning yoga or nightly skin care regime to very exciting new levels.
Taurus & Taurus Rising (April 20-May 20)
In a complete shock to no one, you’re feeling decadent this month, Taurus. Your ruling planet, Venus has been making its way through fellow Venusian sign Libra, calling attention to everything love, pleasure, and beauty. Make the most of this transit by treating yourself and those you care about to extravagant meals, sensual massages, and long naps. Seduction is an art, take your time and show your lovers how delicious slow sex can be when you are deliberate and intentional with your touch.
Gemini & Gemini Rising (May 21-June 20)
Clear out your closets, Gemini. Spend this month beautifying your home and making room for new energy to enter in the fall. Organize your drawers and get rid of old papers and clothing you haven’t worn since before the pandemic. Decluttering creates portals for manifesting all of the fantastic upgrades that are on their way to you. Your space should turn you on, make intentional choices about the scents, items, and fabrics in your bedroom, especially if you are looking to call in more romance and sexy encounters.
Cancer & Cancer Rising (June 21-July 22)
Express your feelings by using your words, Cancer. Your moods are ever-fluctuating, and like the moon, it takes time to move through each phase. Your emotional intelligence is getting an upgrade, begin to notice when you are feeling the sometimes extreme shifts, and make the conscious effort to allow yourself to move through your own lunar cycle of emotions before responding or reacting. When you find yourself at a neutral position, make your decision from there. Tell your lovers and friends what you’re doing so they aren’t expecting a quick answer from you, rather they show you the same compassion you’re giving yourself.
Leo & Leo Rising (July 23-August 22)
Watch your wallet this month, Leo. You may have the urge to shop til you drop, but practical Virgo is asking you to be intentional with how you spend your money. There is an emphasis on quality over quantity, and pausing to reflect on the why before you buy. There is always an emotional quality to spending money, what feeling are you looking to satisfy? Creativity and sexual expression come from the same place in the body. Make sure you are bringing balance between what you are creating and what you are consuming, the benefits of pleasure far outweigh temporary gratification.
