September is recalibrating to center ourselves amidst friction with authority figures

September Horoscope Overview

Happy Harvest season, dear CADA family! Hardworking and routine-oriented Virgo sun encourages us to find organization wherever our lives may feel scattered at this moment. The September 6th’s new moon is a fantastic time to set short-term goals around health, financial management, nutrition, and work projects. 

There’s an emphasis on partnerships that crescendos on September 22 during the Autumnal equinox. This month illuminates who is still aligned with our lifestyle and ethos, emerging from the past 18 months of collective evolution. Relationships that are morally mismatched may fall away this month, leaving spaciousness for new supportive connections to take their place.

On September 27th Mercury moves retrograde in the Libra ‘mediator’ sign, encouraging us to find truthful middle ground and nuance when scrutinizing information and media headlines. In our polarized political environment, it may seem impossible to find compromise, but that’s the goal at the present time. Overall, there is a sense of moral righteousness to ‘do the right thing.’ And yet, there may not be clear communication about how to accomplish that.

September Horoscope: Business and Society

We enter the month in a highly productive rhythm energetically, thanks to Mars in Virgo. New partnership opportunities and strategic alliances can flourish at this time. Though, be wary of conflicts with authority figures around the 6th and the 17th. Tensions are extra likely to boil over, especially for Cardinal signs.

This is true for both professional and personal relations, as friction with authority figures is exploited with Pluto’s T-Square to asteroid Eris and Venus. Tempers have been hot since mid August, as we see shifts in power play out on a global stage under this war-like influence.

Around September 22nd we may hear communication from the powers that be indicating a shift in strategy around the pandemic. Watch for fluctuations in the market during this time, as Venus opposes Uranus and Squares Saturn. Optimism is still in the air, but we’re likely receiving information from international sources forcing our hand.

September Horoscope: Relationships

The September 6th new moon brings tension around relationships that may be enduring a ‘make it or break it’ moment. Summer flings may take a turn for the more serious at this time, with DTR conversations ripe, especially for air signs. Overall, passions will be intensified, which can either lead to a hot Labor Day or impetuous, fiery endings.

Effort to maintain an equilibrium in your own emotional state will be supported with Mercury in Libra. Practice seeing both sides of a situation, discerning the truthful middle ground. Deep, soothing breaths!

On September 10th Venus moves into the sign of Scorpio, intensifying deep feelings and attachments. This can bring further intimacy into play with connections, while also exploiting shadow behavior to unhealed codependent, jealous or obsessive dynamics. Watch for controlling behavior around the 17th and remember love should always feel like freedom.

Happy birthday month, Virgo. Tis the season for harvesting all the success you’ve worked so diligently toward this year.

If you’re dating, you may find yourself having conversations about going ‘there’ with a lover around August 8th, though it challenges your desire to be in control. Leave power dynamic games for the bedroom, and leave it all on the line! Your heart will thank you.
