Welcome to September, star babies. This month brings Libra season, the start of autumn, and a Mercury retrograde. First off, on Friday, September 4, Venus, the planet which rules love, beauty, and money, enters perfectionist Virgo. This sees us striving to be our best selves within our romantic relationships, and for some summer flings, it could signify the partnership becoming more serious as cuffing season begins. It’s also the perfect excuse to start playing with autumn hair and makeup looks.
Mercury retrograde begins on Friday, September 9. You know what to do. Double-check emails for typos, expect communication mishaps and travel delays and avoid any exes sliding back into your DMs. Because this Mercury retrograde begins in Libra, the sign of relationship and partnerships, take special care to avoid misunderstandings in matters of love. This entire weekend has the potential to be messy, as the next day, Saturday, September 10, brings a full moon in dreamy Pisces. Read your sun sign’s horoscope to see how this lunation affects you directly, but in general, full moons can cause drama, so if you want to play it safe, lay low this weekend and catch up on rest.
Thursday, September 22, brings the start of Libra season. Libra is ruled by lover Venus, making this a romantic time of year. Libra is also the sign of justice and balance, as symbolized by the scales. It makes perfect sense that this date, Thursday, September 22, is also the autumn equinox, a day in which the hours of light and dark are equal, signifying the start of fall. Finding balance also becomes a theme this season, especially finding the best work/life balance, as the back-to-school vibe makes our days feel busier.
If you’re looking for a date to begin adjusting your schedule, the new moon in justice-oriented Libra on Sunday, September 25, couldn’t be more ideal. New moons mark times for fresh starts and beginnings, so it’s a great day to start a goal or even pick up a new hobby. Thankfully, when the lover planet Venus enters its home sign of Libra on Thursday, September 29, communication flows easier in romantic relationships, even if Mercury is still retrograde. You’ve got this; see what September has in store for you by reading your horoscope below.
