HOROSCOPES | SEPTEMBER 2019
By Leah Samuels of Moonlight Offerings
How’s Virgo Season treating you so far, and more importantly, how are you treating yourself? Virgo is a mutable sign, meaning the energy of change and transition is in the air. Mutable signs act as buffers between one season and the next. Virgo is here to help you ground and get organized. It’s a time to shape your daily routines into ones that best suit your present needs. Virgo is also connected with the concept of a harvest.
It’s time to both savor the fruits of your labor and work to sustain the strides of growth you’ve made over the past few months.
Earth signs are here to support. On September 1st, Mercury in Virgo trines Uranus in Taurus and Venus in Virgo trines Saturn in Capricorn. This combination helps you show up for your life and relationships with innovation and responsibility. On September 18th, Saturn retrograde comes to a close. This means it’s time to begin implementing the adjustments to your life you know you need. Practice patience and gentleness with yourself in the process.
Trust in the wisdom of your personal timing.
As planets pass through Virgo, they oppose Neptune in Pisces. The Full Moon in watery Pisces arrives on September 13th. The Virgo-Pisces axis encourages you to seek the spiritual in the mundane, and find fluidity within the structures that compose your life. Virgo represents the vessel, and Pisces is the spirit that flows through you. Expect increased sensitivity, emotional connection and release on the Pisces Full Moon this month.
On September 23rd, we’ll welcome Libra Season and the Fall Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere.
Honor the beauty in the life cycles of death and rebirth, in the natural world and within yourself.
We finish out a busy month with the New Moon in Libra on September 28th. This New Moon offers an opportunity to engage in acts of love that help tip the scales toward greater balance and justice.
Goals, Replenish, Focus
This month, align your internal energy with your external goals. Patience may be a challenge, but the changes you’re making require it. Be sure to pace yourself when working with long term goals. Bring your attention toward your health and wellbeing. Sometimes, simple moments of rest are just what you need to replenish your energy, so that you can best focus. This month, remember that you can’t control what other people do. What you can do is choose how you respond. Continue to build trust with yourself and take the actions necessary to drive your life in the direction you want it to go.
Receptivity, Sweetness, Presence
Be ready to receive this month, Taurus. Stay in touch with your potential and discover that sweetness abounds. Your sense of self is changing. As you move through this metamorphosis, it can feel disorienting, at times. This month, ground deep into what feels good. Revisit activities and connections with people that you enjoy. Center your work around creativity and presence. You’ll feel satisfied when you are fully engaged with what you’re doing. Practice plenty of appreciation and gratitude. Allow yourself to relax into the solidity of your personal growth.
Self-Love, Growth, Release
This month has the potential for personal breakthroughs and new beginnings. Self-love means showing up for yourself, especially when it’s difficult. You’re encouraged to pursue your passion and truth, even if that means leaving something else behind. Determine what helps you feel connected to yourself in a positive way. If a part of your life feels stuck, it’s time to release it from the grips of the past. Honor yourself and your personal growth by taking the necessary actions to move forward and on. Consider this an act of self-love.
Assessment, Clarity, Communication
This month illuminates the themes of action and consequence. Your decisions will likely have a longer term impact. It’s a good time to assess if your actions are in alignment with your intuition. Make sure to balance instinct with logic, and vice versa. Take the time to get organized, and prioritize what’s important to you. Focus on clear communication and expression. Narrow down what you don’t want and what you do. This will help you create more space for happiness and success.
Integrity, Adapt, Flow
Stay committed to up-leveling your life. This may look like breaking habits, trying something new in your work, or simply expressing more of who you are to the people in your life. Trust that this will pay off and is worth it. Focus more on the integrity of your work, rather than the results. Then, you’ll enter a state of flow, ease, and trust within yourself. Your small successes don’t always have to witnessed to be important. Give yourself the credit you deserve as you adapt to the changes occurring in your life. Place value on your personal experiences and the wisdom that you are contributing to the greater whole.
Compassion, Clarity, Balance
Happy Virgo Season! It’s your time to shine. Let go of some of that emotional weight you’ve been carrying. Queen of Swords style, cut through any bullshit in your life. This month, you’re most effective when you lead with logic. Find a compassionate balance between your head and your heart when making decisions. Draw your attention inward and tend to your personal wellbeing. You’re great at supporting and taking care of others. Now, it’s time to take care of YOU. This means honoring your boundaries in relationships. Although it’s likely you’ll have a busy month, seek out some quiet time to find your clear and calm center.
Spirituality, Calm, Alignment
Look within, Libra. This is your reminder to be kind to yourself as you move through this month. Cultivate a spiritual practice. Engage in activities such as cleaning your altar, re-organize your living space, or establish a daily discipline for relaxation that will facilitate a calm mindset. You may discover some parts of yourself that need some extra TLC. As you prepare for Libra Season, get in touch with what you value about yourself. Do your best to live in alignment with these values.
Complexity, Success, Authenticity
This month, remember to hold space for nuance and complexity. Try to live in a both/and mindset. You can enjoy achieving some of your goals while still holding space for the ones you haven’t reached, yet. Healing occurs as you continue to make room for your multi-faceted self. Work on redefining what success means to you. If the goals you’re focusing on aren’t bringing any happiness, you may want to redirect your energy. Also, take time for friendships and community this month. You may discover growth areas and inspiration through authentic connections with others.
Improvement, Opportunity, Surrender
You’ve been focusing on personal improvement and self-development, and it shows. Although career may be the focal point, this notion can be applied to any part of your life. The energy of potential has surrounded you all year, but is particularly potent, now. This time frame signifies a turning point for you. As life is in a constant state of flux, be sure to focus on what you can control, rather than on what you can’t. Try to surrender to the flow. Continue to believe in yourself, and stay open to the opportunities that are buzzing around you.
Beliefs, Creativity, Alignment
There is not one guide book for life, or one magic cure for any of the world’s problems. You may have gotten used to managing your life in a certain way. Now, you’re being asked to rewrite the rules for yourself. The power to transform your perspective comes from within you, and your external experiences serve as invitations to do so. Reflect on how your belief systems have shifted lately. Your beliefs influence your behavior, and this month is all about taking inspired action. Live in alignment with your true self, and continue to create and re-create the future you want to live in.
Intuition, Choice, Innovation
Focus on the terrain of your internal world this month. Stay grounded and connected to your intuition, as you navigate the emotions that are calling out for your attention. It’s easy to get caught up in the stories of your mind. Instead, be aware of your somatic responses. In other words, get out of your head and drop into your gut to make your best decisions this month. Sometimes, it appears better to stay detached from outcomes. This month, choose to use your power in a different way. It’s time to implement new and innovative solutions to any repeating problems. Trust yourself and your inner knowledge to guide you.
Clarity, Trust, Release
This month ushers some mental clarity into your life. As you view yourself from a more objective vantage point, you’ll more clearly understand the emotional energy that you’ve been carrying around. Release self-criticism and honor your unique wisdom and the way you view the world. This month, it’s time to call upon self-determination. Be bold in expressing yourself and your boundaries. Trust that you can make sound decisions when you know yourself and what you stand for. Nobody knows what’s best for you more than you do.
