Hold your horses in September, Scorpio! Although the month starts off with some heavy water energy that has you moving fast, there are things beneath the surface you’ll need to resolve this month. Indeed, your co-ruler Mars even stations retrograde this month, bringing your energy levels to an all-time low.
When you think about it, though, a change in pace is probably exactly what the doctor ordered. If you can’t slow yourself down, the Universe will make sure to do it for you.
September begins with an ethereal Full Moon in Pisces on the 2nd. The spiritually attuned, compassionate glow of the moon softly lights your fifth house of creativity, romance, and joy. With Uranus involved, an unexpected ending is on the way or at least a surprising change in direction. This could mean you rebound to a past lover, or maybe you’re moving in with someone you’ve been seeing for some time.
Regardless, you soak up the opportunity of the unknown ground by closing a certain chapter in your life and stepping into the next.
No matter what changes you make, private matters of the past are bound to haunt you after the 5th. From then until the end of September, communicative Mercury will be carving through your twelfth house of memories, subconscious, and all things unseen. Feel free to explore your psyche behind a discrete curtain of isolation, but don’t let guilt and indecision hold you hostage.
While you might not be ready to open up privately, you’re ready to make a grand professional debut around the 6th when Venus enters Leo and your tenth house of life’s work.
Mars is your co-ruler, so you’ll want to watch for low energy when he stations retrograde on the 9th. Indeed, health will be a concern for the next 8-10 weeks as the planet of ambition and assertion treks backward over your sixth house of wellness. Take this time to adopt a new method of self-care or even an all-out diet and exercise routine. As long as you do things gradually and stay alert to your wellbeing, you should make it through Mars retrograde without any additional battle scars.
Indeed, you can really acknowledge your education and your skillful mastery of communication once Jupiter stations direct on the 12th. Opening wondrous doors in Capricorn and your third house of learning, siblings, and mental intelligence, the planet of good luck and fortune smiles on you for the rest of the year.
Around the 17th, you’ll probably be spending some time with friends. The New Moon in Virgo this day gives you a fresh start in your eleventh house, making you more inclined to be social within personal and professional networks.
There is no better time this month to broaden your support system by getting involved with an organization or group. You’ll be able to do this easily if you leverage your practical side. Just a hint: you might want to take an extra look into technological or political endeavors. Where something may not have seemed feasible before, now you have a clean slate you can use to inscribe the future you want.
When Juno enters your own sign and first house on the 20th, the Universe questions your commitment to yourself. How far are you willing to go to move past your fears and secure the commitment and devotion you’re longing for?
What’s it going to take for you to renew your “marriage” with yourself? Two days later on the 22nd, the Sun enters Libra and your mysterious twelfth house to help you answer that question.
Over the course of the next month, you’re becoming aware of standards and criteria that fall outside of your own personal interest. This psychological expansion is right up your alley and working to help you reconsider any thought constraints you’ve taken on throughout this year.
On the 27th, Mercury enters your own sign and your first house of self. You’ll find yourself compelled to speak up about anything you were keeping silent before – but everyone else will be feeling this too. That means a few dirty little secrets could be on their way out into the open. Whatever is said or unsaid, you’re sure to get to the bottom of anything you have your suspicions about.
Also on the 27th, Earth Mother Ceres backtracks into Aquarius. This is a reminder that you will only feel nourished and abundant once you can support your own individuality and uniqueness.
Uncertainty shows its face on the 29th with Saturn stationing direct in Capricorn. Throughout the rest of the year, your mental, physical, and spiritual environments (the places you call familiar) will be full of reality-check experiences that aim to show you how things work in your new world.
Heading into October, it’s important that you deliberately slow down and focus on how you relate the world around you. It’ll be well worth the awareness it brings.
