September begins on a courteous, dignified note as Venus moves into Virgo on September 5th. This is quite old-fashioned energy for love and romance, but rather critical too, so watch out for well-meaning interference from others.

When Mercury turns retrograde in Libra on September 9th, diplomacy dwindles, so the somewhat nitpicky vibe of Venus in Virgo becomes even more prominent. Think about how what you say will make someone feel.

The following day, an emotional Pisces Full Moon showcases both the heights and depths of emotion, in a day that’s likely to bring tears for one reason or another. This is also an intensely mystical Full Moon, so paranormal events or unexplained sensations are likely to increase.

Mid-September proceeds relatively quietly, astrologically speaking; this is likely to be a period when we get on with some hard work. It’s still important, though, not to be overly critical of others since communication mishaps may escalate.

The Equinox on September 22nd is a welcome point of balance and perspective. As the Sun moves into Libra, greater clarity of mind arrives, and there’s an upswing in pleasant, charming social interactions.

The following day, Mercury retrograde moves backward into analytical Virgo, so this is a good time to think about what’s gone right so far this year, and where you might improve things next time around.

Don’t get stuck in the past though, because a lovely Libra New Moon on the 25th is all about moving forward with hope. This positive atmosphere is reinforced on September 29th too, when Venus moves into Libra, soothing tempers and restoring the diplomacy we rely on for successful everyday relationships.

Balancing your stress levels is going to be very important in the early part of September.

Venus moves into your wellbeing zone on September 5th, urging you to take things easy and to put your own wants and needs first.

However, with Mercury turning retrograde in your opposite sign on September 9th, there’s a danger that your selfish streak could emerge in your closest relationship. You don’t mean any harm, but your desire to look after number one may come across badly to your partner.

Any hurt this causes is likely to boil over during the sensitive Full Moon on September 10th. Be careful that you don’t indulge in negative escapism around this time. It’s better to face your problems head-on than to try to hide from them through fantasy or intoxication.

Mid-September is a good time to focus on creating a healthier balance between what you want versus what those you love want. Having done that, the Equinox on September 22nd is a glorious moment for your love life, as the Sun moves into your opposite sign, flooding it with warmth, light, and optimism.

The following day, Mercury retrograde leaves your love zone and heads backward into your wellbeing zone. Use this energy to plan ahead – you know that you’ll be under pressure at certain times, so create positive ways of handling that stress.

A New Moon in your love zone on September 25th is a welcome experience and when Venus arrives here, too, on the 29th, you’ll have the chance to get much closer to your forever person.
