Welcome to September, Scorpio. Fall is coming, and yes, that means that the infamous Scorpio season will be upon us for too long. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s talk about everything the stars have in store for you this month. At the end of August, the rebel planet Uranus went retrograde, prompting you to shake off unhealthy habits, whether that’s being overly critical of yourself or not getting enough sleep.
Keep such thinking in mind, Scorpio, because Mercury retrograde begins on Friday, September 9. You know the rules: Expect travel delays and communication errors, and do your best to resist checking any DMs. Messages from exes may be present, and despite Mercury retrograde, the stars are bringing magic to your love life, so you don’t need any past distractions. The full moon in dreamy Pisces on Saturday, September 10, is a powerful night for romantic and sexual manifestation.
If you’re partnered or dating, this lunation sees you growing closer with someone physically and emotionally. But remember, Scorpio, your most important relationship is with yourself. So, if what sounds most fun to you is developing intimacy between you and your sex toy during this full moon, goddess bless. Keep self-care, such as sleep, long baths, and masturbating on your mind.
Because Friday, September 16, has the potential to be an anxiety-wrought day. Romantic Venus squares (a stressful aspect) your ruling planet, warrior Mars. As a result, you may feel scattered and slightly panicked. It’s OK to say no to social invitations; sometimes, you just need to choose your favorite TV show over a party for the sake of your wellbeing.
Don’t let that one potentially stressful day scare you, Scorpio. The stars make up for it by bringing you a jolt of luck on Sunday, September 18, when the Sun trines (a favorable aspect) your other ruling planet, the fierce Pluto, ruler of the underworld. You feel confident, and your Scorpio magnetism is in full force. So, if you’ve been waiting for the right day to ask out a crush or draft an email asking for a raise at work, now is the time (although remember that Mercury is retrograde, so if people take longer to get back to you, don’t take it personally).
