Key themes: adventure, professional pursuits, deadlines, communication, freedom.

The month of September opens up with Venus —the planet of love, intimacy and beauty— entering the service-driven sign of Virgo until the 29th. Embarking on new adventures and giving into the thrill of the unknown will be key to your pleasure during the weeks to come. Get curious about the people that come into your life just at the right time. Learn to trust the timing of things, and to hold space for awe. Wherever your intuition goes, follow.

On the 9th, Mercury —the Messenger— will station to go retrograde in the balancing sign of Libra, where it may bring setbacks in your professional life. There’s no need to worry. Prepare for this moment by loosening up when it comes to your goals for the next couple of weeks. Ask for more time, extend your deadlines, and promise less than what you know you can give, just in case.

The Full Moon in the dreamy sign of Pisces will happen on the 10th, at 5:59am EST, shining a light on what works in your daily life and rituals. As your communications become more sensitive under the light of the Moon, it’ll be best to trust your intuition over what’s evident. Trust instead of trying to control what you say and what is said. As you strive to meet your deadlines, learn to surf the chaos of daily life, while trying not to take things too personally.

On the 22nd, the Sun’s exit from Virgo will give way to Libra Season, highlighting your career and long-term goals. You’ve been unlocking a lot of information in regards to your life path and what you want for your future. Allow all of these insights to take you back to the things that turn you on and give you a sense of purpose. Get clear on the kinds of foundations you want, need, and are required for the life you wish to keep building.

Mercury, still retrograde, will move back into Virgo on the 23rd, leading you to review things that were happening or that you were thinking about in regards to your philosophies, belief systems and need for freedom during August 20th to 25th. Give yourself time to mull things over without jumping to conclusions just yet. You’ll be able to get more clarity on the matter during the first couple of weeks of October.

The New Moon in Libra will happen on the 25th, at 5:54pm EST, and your professional life begins to flow with greater ease. As you put your energy into your passion and your pleasure, you’ll see the obstacles start to fade away. Take a moment to tap into the fire of your vocation, and how it feels in your body. From here is where you can center back, and dig your roots deeper into what it means to give of yourself in service of what you believe in.

inally, on the 29th, Venus enters its home sign of Libra, uplifting the energy of the New Moon. Don’t waste your time wishing that your life was another way. Connect to the pleasure of serving from wherever it is you are right now. You know what to put aside, what to take out completely, what to stack up on, and how to let go when it’s time. Trust yourself and trust the work that your passion leads you towards.
