Key themes: resources, self-worth, pleasure, partnership, love, security, sharing.

The month of September opens up with Venus —the planet of love, intimacy and beauty— entering your sign until the 29th. During this time, your focus will be on feeling yourself. Virgo Season is a time of self-actualization for you, and with Venus in the mix, you’re being invited to imbue the consistency and daily rituals needed for this to take place with a little beauty. Bring flowers into your home. Wear perfumes just for yourself. Spend more time indulging in the things that bring you comfort and pleasure.

On the 9th, Mercury —the Messenger— will station to go retrograde in the balancing sign of Libra, activating your area of finances, values and self-worth. This transit will serve as a reminder that your worth is not contingent on your material possessions. Situations may come up that lead you to rethink where you choose to place your value, bringing your awareness to your support groups and your social capital. Think carefully about where you direct your resources during this time.

The Full Moon in the dreamy sign of Pisces will happen on the 10th, at 5:59am EST, shining a light on your area of partnerships and agreements. What you’ve been able to build together, through reality, as well as fantasy, will be celebrated. This is an invitation to loosen up to love. It’s an invitation to let in the ones that are there for the obvious and for the undertones, for the factual and for the dream. Don’t rush things, but do make an effort to relax into the feelings you can’t control.

On the 22nd, the Sun’s exit from your sign will give way to Libra Season, highlighting your sense of security. Get clear about what’s non-negotiable for you. Get organized. Map out a schedule where what’s needed can get done, and where you have enough space for leisure, and to be flexible towards change. Your body will be the boss during this Season, follow its lead and listen to its needs. Gift it moments of pleasure and relaxation.

Mercury, still retrograde, will move back into your sign on the 23rd, leading you to review ideas, exchanges, conversations and idealizations that occurred in regards to your self-discovery and your intimate relationships during August 20th to 25th. Give yourself time to mull things over without jumping to conclusions just yet. You’ll be able to see things clearer and have more fluid conversations during the first couple of weeks of October.

The New Moon in the sociable sign of Libra will happen on the 25th, at 5:54pm EST. The darkness of the Moon wants to connect you to the magic of sharing. How can you cultivate intimacy through the exchange of resources, instead of it leading to an imbalance of power?

Finally, on the 29th, Venus enters its home sign of Libra, uplifting the energy of the New Moon. Keep in mind that the tension and emotional residue that come up in relationship when money is involved has nothing to do with you and with your intrinsic worth. Don’t get entangled in these unconscious stories. Make sure that what you gift your loved ones comes, not from a place of social expectations, but from an honest investment in their wellbeing.
