SEPTEMBER 2017 – LIBRA
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 22)
It’s just a few short weeks until the Sun enters your sign, Libra!
It’s almost Libra season! But first, you’ll have to endure the Sun’s journey through Virgo, which will teach you about slowing down and tapping into your psychic abilities. Virgo is associated with the Hermit card in the tarot. Even though you’re one of the friendliest signs in the zodiac, during Virgo season, you will ache for alone time! Do it now, Libra—when your birthday rolls around, you won’t have time to be by yourself. You will be busy doing what you do best: connecting with others
Action planet Mars enters Virgo on September 5, which will boost your intuitive abilities. Don’t be surprised if you toss and turn in bed with very active dreams. Pay attention to the messages your inner voice delivers! Also on September 5, Mercury ends its retrograde in Fire sign Leo. Finally, communication and connecting with others will get easier. Conversations that were stalled, as far back as July, will pick up again.
Mercury retrograde has a reputation—it’s bad for signing contracts, having important conversations, or making big purchases. But it’s a great time to slow down and reflect. During this specific retrograde, you likely ran into people you used to work with, old friends, and people you knew from the scenes you hung around in the past.
As big of a pain as Mercury retrograde can be, the information it brings usually fills in emotional gaps—what did you learn about yourself, your friends, your goals, and your deepest hopes and dreams during this retrograde?
A full moon, in sensitive and psychic Water sign Pisces, lands September 6! Full moons are tiring, so don’t overbook yourself. You will have many responsibilities, and if you’ve been struggling to manage them, this full moon will push you to a place where you need to change.
What did you learn about yourself, your friends, your goals, and your deepest hopes and dreams during Mercury retrograde?
Thinking about getting a new job or making big changes to your daily routines or schedule? Full moons bring endings, so a turning point is close. Your health and habits will also be a focus, as will themes of reliability and responsibility in your relationships.
Your ruling planet, Venus, makes easy connections mid-month, bringing you good vibes. The first is with Saturn, on September 12—which, admittedly, won’t be the most romantic time in your life. (Saturn does not like to cuddle or be cute.) But it will be interesting with respect to commitment. Venus connects with lucky planet Jupiter on September 15, which will be a fun, flirtatious occasion. Expect to indulge!
My favorite connection Venus will make? Its trine (an easy astrological aspect) to wild Uranus, on September 18, which will be kinky as hell. Expect an electric, spontaneous atmosphere—anything can and will happen! Uranus is the planet of surprise, so if you’ve been bored, this will be just what you need.
Venus enters thoughtful, grounded Virgo on September 19, which will likely find you less flirty than usual… or, at least, as obviously flirty! You’ll feel compelled to be more secretive—more behind the scenes about your crushes, your desires, and your whereabouts.
A secret love affair is possible, or, if you’re happy in your committed relationship, you may pursue a deepening of the psychic connection you share. It’s time to sit quietly, somewhere in nature, and gaze into each other’s eyes.
A new moon in Virgo arrives September 20, which will occasion you to work through your emotions (especially the ones you don’t want to deal with). Let go of the past. Meditation, connecting with your inner voice, and paying attention to your dreams are important during Virgo season. Use this Virgo new moon for psychic development. Also, Libra, cut yourself a break. Take a nap. Take a trip. Do what you have to do. Leave your normal, everyday life behind. Reconnect with yourself.
