The month of September
Pisces, relationships are at the forefront of your September as the Sun travels to the zones that encourage commitment in your chart. You can strengthen your most important relationships by partnering up with others for love or work. The Sun will be in Virgo until September 23 and is your house of committed partnerships. El Sol then plunges even deeper, moving to Libra, your eighth house, which is where you invest and have intimacy.
You may find yourself focusing on the past to heal any rifts you have with your inner-circle. Mercury, the planet responsible for communication and technology is retrograde from Virgo to September 15. While this could potentially create tension with a business or romantic partner—or bring back someone from your past—it’s a golden opportunity to forge a new, heart-expanding level of understanding with those who matter most.
This will be even easier starting September 3, when love planet Venus ends a six-week retrograde backspin that’s disrupted the harmony of relationships since July 22. But you’ll still have to content with all five of the slow-moving outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) all being retrograde for essentially the whole month of September.

Saturn and Neptune both reside in Pisces. Making peace with the past is a vital action as they continue to reflect. You’re stepping into your leadership and power, and designing structures to support that. Connecting with your old mentors as well as practicing emotionally supportive techniques like meditation or therapist can help you develop resilience that will last.
A confidence-boosting event could boost your income. The supermoon in Aries on September 29, 2009, will land in your second home of income and security. In the glow from these abundance beams you realize how valuable you really are and the universe may respond to you in kind. You deserve to be treated to something beautiful, affirming. Be open to any money-making opportunities you may receive. You’ve earned it!
It’s Virgo season until September 23
This month is all about relationships, as the Sun makes its annual round through the most relationship-centric areas of your chart. El Sol will be in Virgo until September 22. This will heat up your partnership zone, and bring complementary like-minded people into your orbit. With the emphasis on cooperation and harmony, it’s a great time to balance your bonds and make sure everyone’s in sync.
But…Mercury is retrograde in Virgo until September 15
Make those agreements public in the second part of the month, if possible. Mercury retrograde is affecting your relationship until September 15.
Mercury undergoes this reversal between three and four times per year. It disrupts technology, travel, and interpersonal relationships. A promising alliance could be slowed down during this cycle due to an unintentional cross-wire. Watch your words, and don’t email or DM anything that you wouldn’t want splashed across your social media feeds and timelines. Even if you’re frustrated, vent only to trusted confidantes.
It’s possible that a co-worker will backtrack from a commitment or put pressure on you to sign the deal. Don’t rush to judgment OR to ink any official contracts just yet. This cycle is a good time to do extra research and evaluate your options. Once Mercury turns direct (forward), you’ll start to get a clearer picture of what’s really going on. Wait until the second half of September.
Jupiter Retrograde in Taurus, September 4
Communication and processing has expanded since May 16 when Jupiter, a planet associated with growth, moved into Taurus. This was the first time in 2011 that Jupiter had entered your third house for ideas and intelligence. Jupiter, who is known for his outspokenness, will be retrograde this September 4, slowing the pace of action until December 30, a period that lasts about a month. Your mood may be a bit more mellow or contemplative, which is in line with your Piscean nature. The outer planets will be in retrograde until the end of the month. Take your own time.
During the summer, many ideas percolated and a number of like-minded people emerged. You may have started a media or writing project, or created an innovative venture. It may have been difficult to catch your breathe because things have been moving so fast. While Jupiter’s retrograde for the next four months, you’ll get some breathing room to think more carefully about your next chapter—and what might need to be tweaked.
For the rest of the year, don’t push ahead for a splashy launch or try to make things happen though sheer drive. It’s all about timing, Pisces. When Jupiter’s prosperous transit turns direct on December 30, you will be able to accelerate your plans. This transit gives you five additional months to transform your ideas into gold.
New moons in Virgo bring a new start to partnership.
Are you ready to start anew with the people closest to you? The new Virgo moon on September 14, ushers a six month cycle favorable for dynamic duos. Start this new chapter now. Between now and the full Virgo moon on February 24, 2020, a simmering attraction might start to move towards an official direction. You’re mulling over the idea of working together in business. You could field an offer—or make one—around this date.
Don’t be surprised if it happens faster thclass=”body-el-link standard-body-el-link” an you expect! The new Moon will form an important trine with Uranus – the planet that brings surprises – a radical force for change. One minute you’re making casual chitchat, the next you’re discussing your favorite engagement ring settings or how many kids you both want. Today, things can happen quickly and unexpectedly. Be ready for anything.
Please, respect our privacy. The Sun enters Libra on September 23
On September 23, the Sun will sink into Libra, your eighth house and the month of privacy and one-onone encounters. Slip away for some inner work and contemplation—or maybe with the company of a sexy plus-one. El Sol is ablaze in your erotic eight house, so some mind-body soul connecting could be the perfect autumn equinox activity!
The eighth house is also responsible for joint financial ventures, and the sharing of resources. Next month, you might find some new ways to combine your superpowers for mutual benefit. It could be a real-estate or investment opportunity, or perhaps you’ll look into passive income earning options (please avoid shady Pyramid Schemes). Reminder: It’s not just how much you make, but what you do with it. You can find ways to save money by using co-op options, such as ride-sharing, meal-prepping (split your grocery bill and save lots) or small-group fitness sessions, instead of hiring a personal trainer.
The Aries full supermoclass=”body-el-link standard-body-el-link” on is on September 29
This supermoon illuminates the second house of your practical, logical, money-focused, security-oriented, earned income. This lunar lift can provide a well-deserved confidence boost—and maybe a pay bump or a fancy title to go with it!
Be ready to meet opportunity wherever it shows up…which could be almost anywhere on a day like this. For clues, look back to the double dose Aries New Moons on March 21, and April 20 this past spring.
The month of August is a steamy week with Mars, the planet of love, blazing in Libra, your eighth house, which represents intimacy, sensuality, and erotic adventures. Couples are encouraged to grab their emotional scuba gear, and prepare for a dive into uncharted waters. You can discuss a problem, clear up an misunderstanding or get your feelings out.
But be open and direct rather than passive-aggressive or “baiting.” If this has serious potential, you want to treat it with the respect it deserves. Single? Whether you’re looking for a part-time playmate or a soul mate, be clear in your intentions and diligent in your efforts. This cycle could bring you a special someone.
Just one caveat, but it’s a biggie: With this planet of desire in this emotionally intense sector, stay on guard for jealousy, possessiveness, obsessional behavior and tunnel vision. These traits won’t disappear until after Mars leaves this laser-focused zone on October 12. An upside to the red planet’s biennial visit: It can lend the courage to face whatever’s going on under the hood and do the transformational work to dig deeper. A therapist (solo or couple’s) could be helpful.
All that said, you’ve got MUCH smoother sailing ahead this month than you’ve had all summer. Venus has been in Leo retrograde since July 22, making you more fussy, anxious, and critical. You may have a flare up of perfectionism. Venus is retrograde six weeks out of every 18 month, and this can cause your close relationships to be disrupted. Even the most stable of couples can experience a rough patch.
On September 3, Venus will turn direct (forward). You can then focus on the details of your life. Pisces, both single and in a relationship, may find that pursuing healthy activities is the way to happiness and fulfillment. Take advantage of Venus’s presence until October 8, and get fit. You can start a weekly night of yoga with your partner. Try a social activity related to fitness where you can meet people who are interesting and active.
September’s main message for Pisces: Team up FTW! As the Sun is in Virgo for the majority of this month and you have a seventh-house of dynamic duos, there are many opportunities to form new alliances. Mercury, the communicator, is in retrograde until September 15th.
Some Fish might start a sideline business with a romantic partner that gives you more time together—and has a solid chance of being a success! Whatever you’re working on, think in terms of synergy. Who do you know with related but different talents—from tech to marketing—that could help you take this to the next level?
You’re looking for a new job. Polish your resume, and practice interviewing with someone you know who is in HR or runs their own company. This will help you identify any weak points. Ask people for recommendations on your LinkedIn profile and whether they’re willing to be one of your references.
If the Sun enters Libra and your eighth-house of property, investments and joint ventures you may be able to invest in real estate or complete a transaction with a positive outcome. Since motivator Mars will be in Libra until August 27, this could occur all month.
A day to circle in Chanel lipstick: September 29, when the year’s only Aries full moon stokes your second house of work and money. You may find THE perfect strategy or get a windfall. If you’ve had job feelers out, you could get the call you’ve been waiting for…or a surprising offer that sounds too good to refuse.
