I’m hoping that the September 2021 horoscopes are going to reflect September’s reputation for being a beautiful month. In September, which begins with the Sun in Virgo, life moves back to its usual routine. Kids go back to school, we get back into our usual work patterns and by the end of the month, when the Sun moves into Libra, there is a real sense that we are all back in the groove. This year, I suspect the desire for that ‘normal life’ is greater than usual, but is the universe going to play along?
The signs are that, as we settle down to the last of the summer sun, that we’ll get some version of normal – even if we don’t recognise it at first. Things may seem familiar – but different – and for many it may feel like a new beginning. The outer planets are all in retrograde motion and Mercury goes into reverse gear at the end of the month – so maybe it’s time to pick up the pieces and work out how they are going to fit together. This may demand Virgo’s patience and Libra’s negotiating skills. Fortunately both signs are well populated this month.
As usual, you may wish to read the September 2021 horoscope according to your Sun sign or rising sign – or both.
September 2021 Horoscope: Aries
Strange as it may seem, Aries, you may be feeling strangely excited to get back to the comforting world of work. Your September 2021 horoscope starts the month with a focus on your daily routines – and with Mars, your ruling planet, in Virgo, you may have a lot of energy at your disposal. Whether you’re determined to get back into shape, or reorganise your life in some way – you will have the drive to do it – but act fast as that drive won’t last forever.
The New Moon stirs up some restlessness in you – and being an Aries that’s fairly easy to do. You get the feeling you need to be more resourceful with your cash – and perhaps a financial surprise will prompt you into action. Change is not necessarily a bad thing and if you have been ignoring the warning signs about issues – ranging from your income to your health – then paying extra attention and taking action could be just what you need.
As the planets move into Libra during the month, you may find relationships could be a little strained if you don’t pay attention to what other people are telling you. At the end of the month, as Mercury stalls, the Full Moon in Pisces suggests you may be wise to hold your tongue as an argument you thought was over seems far from being so. And it may be a big one. It’s possible that someone will have simply misunderstood something that was said. Or maybe someone was economical with the truth. Either way it’s going to need resolving – and the sooner the better.
September 2021 Horoscope: Taurus
Your September 2021 horoscope shows that the month begins with a passion – and that may be literally so for you Taurus. Passion comes in many forms and those of you who are romantically inclined may be feeling the benefit of the Sun and Mars activating your love life. Even single Taurus people may feel energised enough to pursue their pleasures this month.
You will be helped in this by the New Moon in Virgo, as this may herald the beginning of everything from a romance to an involvement with a new hobby or interest that also may have caught your attention. Whatever it is, it brings a new sparkle to your life. This will be beneficial to you so make the most of it while you can, as later in the month your attention is concerned with more mundane things. Mercury slows before turning retrograde and you will need to pay attention to more practical matters concerning your health and wellbeing.
Fortunately, as an earthy Taurus, you’re a sensible soul so attending to such things shouldn’t be too stressful for you. However, you may find that the latter part of the month seems a little like ‘all work and no play’. Don’t worry. The Full Moon in Pisces will enable you to take a time-out and relax with friends or other like-minded souls. For those of you unable to relax? You may find you spend your time in other social activities or working for a good cause. Whatever makes you feel good is the message here.
September 2021 Horoscope: Gemini
If there’s a project at home that you’ve been thinking about tackling, now is the time to roll up your sleeves and get it done. Gemini may not be the most practical of signs, but the Sun and Mars in your fellow Mercury ruled sign of Virgo may bring forth ‘DIY skills’ you never knew you had. At the very least, you’ll be feeling confident enough to try your hand.
The New Moon in Virgo, also puts your home and family on the agenda this month. If painting and decorating is not your thing, you may find yourself helping family members who need more of your time and energy than usual and it’s likely you will have to put their needs before your own. An outward show of generosity of spirit will be needed – even if you don’t necessarily feel that way on the inside. Your work routine may also be interrupted so be prepared to make allowances for this too.
Later in the month, your September 2021 horoscope suggests your focus will return to your own pleasures and creative projects – perhaps a relief from the dutiful nature of the first half of the month. You may have some catching up to do as the Full Moon shows you may need to meet a deadline by the end of the month. If it’s a self-imposed deadline? My advice to you is let it slide – with Mercury turning retrograde, you may need to look again at the detail.
September 2021 Horoscope: Cancer
This month, you have a lot of mental energy. In fact, you may find it difficult to switch off. Whether it’s mental activity or your packed schedule, as the month opens you will be busy, that’s for sure. Part of the reason for this is you’re in demand. Your social diary may be filled with invitations you simply cannot refuse. Alternatively, you may be the social secretary – and any teams or organisations you’re a member of may be resuming their activities after the summer break.
The New Moon in Virgo suggests that this may be a welcome change for you. Cancer is supposed to be the shy and retiring type, but you thrive when you’re involved – particularly if it’s for a worthy cause. The New Moon suggests that may be so – and if you find yourself organising a fundraiser or charitable event (and there may be an overseas connection to this) then that would really be putting your instinctive, caring nature to good use.
Your energies may be directed closer to home as the month progresses, as home and family matters demand your attention. You’re the kind of person who always finds a lot to do at home, often in a good way, as you’re naturally a good host. You may feel like throwing a party – or have good reason to celebrate. The Full Moon suggests that by the end of the month you will be in an expansive and generous mood – and maybe looking forward to a last minute break.
September 2021 Horoscope: Leo
Your September 2021 horoscope begins with a focus on your resources. Leo likes a life of comfort and if you feel you haven’t got enough in the bank to do that, you may be directing your efforts towards changing that situation. Action is called for, and the New Moon in Virgo suggests it may be easier than you think to find the new career opening that will allow you to upgrade your life. Be prepared for a sudden change or surprise in store where your career is concerned, and you may find yourself heading in a new direction.
As the personal planets move into Libra, you may experience a sense of greater equilibrium than has been the case in recent months. Is this because you’re now able to get your head around the things you need to do to keep the show on the road? Maybe. Whatever happens, make the most of this time to deal with any outstanding correspondence – particularly before Mercury turns retrograde. It’s likely to be a busy and sociable time too, so enjoy it while you can.
The Full Moon at the end of the month signals a change in tempo. You may have been working hard and as a result you may feel the need to relax more than usual. If your lifestyle has changed significantly over the past few weeks you may want to reflect on that – and perhaps yoga or meditation would be useful for you at this time. One word of caution. Be careful who you share your information or money with as you could be subject to a little – or even a lot of – deception at this time.
September 2021 Horoscope: Virgo
As a Virgo you like nothing more than being productive and the September 2021 horoscope suggests that this month you will it the ground running. You may be feeling more energetic than usual or have a particular task that needs your attention. Whatever it is you will attack life with enthusiasm as the month begins. The New Moon in your sign also suggests a change of scene could be coming your way. You may have a sudden or unexpected chance to travel, or you may find you have surprising news from overseas. You may, however, experience a sudden change in your view of the world.
As the planets move into Libra, your concerns shift to your personal resources – whether that’s maximising your own talents or increasing your income. For the rest of the month, this is where your focus is directed – though as your ruler Mercury slows before turning retrograde, you may find it more difficult to come up with the answers you seek. However, mentally you’re feeling positive – and you are more likely to receive good news at the end of the month than not.
At the end of the month the Full Moon shines its light on your relationships – and things could go either way. This could be a romantic time as you put your energy into making the relationship stable and secure – or you may discover you’ve been papering over the cracks and have some work to do to make improvements. Either way, the door is open for you to reform your attachments to make them work better for both of you.
September 2022 Horoscope: Libra
Sometimes you need to de-clutter your soul, and the September 2021 horoscope suggests that this is the month to do that. As the month begins you may feel frustrated – particularly if there is some anger or energy that you can’t express or find hard to direct in a positive manner. Libra is an amenable sign and you don’t tend to show your feelings. As a result you may tend to hold things inside – and this may be one of those times.
The New Moon in Virgo is a sign you may not be dealing with things as well as you think you are. However, a change of circumstances may enable you to undergo the radical changes you need to move your life in a new direction. Your awareness of this will increase during the month as the Sun moves into your sign to join the personal planets. You have the opportunity and energy to really think hard about where you go from here – particularly with Mercury turning retrograde in your sign late in the month.
It’s essential that you take the opportunity to look at things from your own perspective (for once) as the Full Moon shines its light on your health and wellbeing this month. It’s a great time to look hard at your diet and exercise regime and make sweeping changes to both. Venus-ruled Libra can be indulgent so maybe it’s time to address the bad habits. By the way, that’s not an excuse to buy a whole new wardrobe…
September 2021 Horoscope: Scorpio
Somethings making you annoyed this month Scorpio. The September 2021 horoscope suggests you may be angry at anything from the state of the world to your own inability to do anything about it. Even friends and colleagues may get you down and you could lose your cool more readily than usual. The answer to this? Get out there and do something. Focus your attention on making a contribution and your frustration will ease. You would be surprised at how many people are looking for someone to help their cause.
The Full Moon in productive Virgo may enable you to get out of your current state of mind – and you’ll be surprised at how quickly and easily things can change. Your partner and personal relationships will help you develop a more positive outlook. Time spent socialising and simply enjoying yourself will be time well spent. Sometimes you need to let the rest of the world go its own way. As the planets move through Libra, you will find your inner tensions will start rising to the surface – don’t ignore them even if it’s tempting to do so. They are best dealt with before they explode.
When Mercury turns retrograde, you have a great opportunity to really dig deep and work out what is really going on inside. The Full Moon at the end of the end of the month shines on your creative efforts – and you may receive an unexpected boost to your confidence. You may also receive some unexpected news from your partner – so watch out for that. That doesn’t mean it will be unwelcome by the way – though as a Scorpio you do tend to think the worst!
September 2021 Horoscope: Sagittarius
This is a great month for taking your career to new heights, as your September 2021 horoscope suggests you will be focused on your job. As a fire sign you’re always impatient for results – and that is certainly true this month. However, you may need to tone things down a bit. Being ambitious and passionate about what you do is one thing, but being overly aggressive and trampling over other people is another. Try and use that famous Sagittarius humour to keep things sweet at work.
The New Moon in Virgo also suggests that may be the way to go. One of the reasons you may be focused and taking the lead is that you may have to. Changes in the structure of your working day or in the organisation you work for may mean you have to step up to the plate. When the planets move through Libra later in the month, it really will be all about teamwork. You may be the leader, but you’re going to have to keep everyone happy and you may need to think hard about getting the balance right.
At the end of the month, the Full Moon shines on your home and family. Things may have got out of hand on the home front and there may be a few things you have been ignoring. Getting the balance right also means not forgetting that you have domestic responsibilities too. So, get your house in order and you may discover that, in such a busy month, it will be the only place you can get away from it all. That’s important because, right now, home is the place that’s going to make you feel restored, refreshed and ready to face the world.
September 2021 Horoscope: Capricorn
This is the month for you to go places Capricorn. Whether it’s stretching your mind or travelling to distant shores, your September 2021 horoscope indicates you will be in new and possibly unfamiliar surroundings – and loving every minute of it in your unemotional Capricorn way of course! There is the suggestion that spreading your wings is something you’ve been actively considering for a while – and now is the perfect time to do so as your plans are fully supported by the New Moon in Virgo.
The New Moon suggests that you need to be in a place where you can not only express yourself, but have the opportunity to discover new ways of doing so. Ultimately, this may important to your future and your ambitions – and as the month progresses with the personal planets moving into Libra, all of this will become more apparent to you. However, with Mercury slowing down and turning retrograde at the end of the month, you’ll need to focus on the journey – not the destination.
The Full Moon at the end of the month shines on your mind so it’s important not to become stressed. You have a lot to think about and you will be busy, so it may be too easy to overlook a few important details – but don’t worry, just take some extra care. This month has the potential to reveal a new you to the world, so seize the moment and put your mind towards achieving your goals. And if that sounds too serious – even for you Capricorn – the September 2021 horoscope also suggests you’re going to have a sociable month too.
September 2021 Horoscope: Aquarius
The month begins with you feeling determined to turn the corner. In fact, you’re likely to feel frustrated and angry if you fail to do so. In your September 2021 Horoscope, The Sun and Mars are energising a sensitive part of your chart – and you may have to make some big decisions about where you’re headed in life. This may involve planning your finances, making big investments – or even investing in yourself – the biggest investment of all.
The New Moon suggests that this may also involve your home and family situation – and there may be some radical changes you’re considering that affect your nearest and dearest too. Why is that? Well, the progress of the personal planets into Libra shows that you have been feeling the need to break free and experience more of life. If that’s so, then now is a good time to make plans to do so – especially with Mercury turning retrograde at the end of the month. Putting your affairs in order is always a good first step.
At the end of the month, the Full Moon shines on your resources – but you may feel a little confused and uncertain about how resourceful you can be. One of the issues may be that the changes you want to make are too radical for some and it’s possible there will be arguments and disagreements with other people who have an interest in the changes you have planned. All you can do in the circumstances is be sympathetic – but keep your own counsel. That’s not the same as being deceptive by the way – honesty is always the best policy.
September 2021 Horoscope: Pisces
The month opens with the focus of activity being on your relationships. The September 2021 horoscope suggests you may initiate a new relationship (of any kind) or existing relationships may become ‘excitable’. So, does excitable mean super sexy, or is there going to be a fight? There is always the potential for one or the other – or both this month.
The New Moon in Virgo would seem to agree with this analysis. It may be all too easy to over-react to an ‘off the cuff’ remark, or be caught off-guard by someone telling you the kind of truth you don’t want to hear. Some of the things that are said may surprise you and when the planets move into Libra, it may help you to think about why you have such an emotional reaction to things you see and hear – even for a Pisces. This month is a good time to think hard about how you can change things so that you feel less defensive and vulnerable.
By the end of the month, the Full Moon shines on you. You may feel exposed and try to cover your feelings when it comes to dealing with people who are more robust than you and who can hurt you – even unintentionally. However the best course of action is to use your empathetic gifts for your own benefit and be kind to yourself. Don’t allow yourself to be confused or deceived. There are some situations and relationships that are best avoided – but that doesn’t mean avoiding the truth about them.
