Welcome to Virgo season, dear fish! The Sun is shining in the sector of your chart that rules partnerships of all kinds—in love, in business, and even with your frenemies. Virgo season is your time to connect with others and embrace compromise. Virgo is realistic and logical, the perfect counter to your poetic, fantastical nature. Your signs are opposites, so you balance each other out! Communication planet Mercury enters Virgo on September 5, finding your partners especially talkative, and Saturn retrograde ends on September 6, bringing about a shift in your social life—networking with immature or unserious people just isn’t for you at this time.


Fantastic opportunities to connect with exciting, or even unusual, people and forge strong bonds arrives on September 7, when Mercury connects with Uranus and Saturn. But this excitement will likely be focused on the groups, clubs, and associations you belong to, since your one-on-one partnerships may suffer from some confusing energy, thanks to the Sun opposing your ruling planet Neptune, on September 7. Luckily, the new moon in Virgo arrives on September 9, bringing a fresh start to your relationships! Venus also enters fellow water sign Scorpio on September 9, bringing a dash of lucky energy your way. A love letter from afar may arrive. If you’re traveling, in school, or doing anything concerning publishing, Venus in Scorpio will be especially beneficial.

On a more emotional level, the vibes from Venus in scorpio and the new moon in Virgo will find you reflecting on how important it is to be with someone you can grow with—not just emotionally, but intellectually and experientially. You’re craving partnerships where there is adventure; where you two can explore the world a and each other. A shift in energy comes when Mars enters Aquarius on September 10, igniting a very private sector of your chart, shaking up your sleep schedule (pay close attention to what comes in your dreams), and raking up some buried anger that you need to address. You will find that you're finally able to move forward on things that came up this spring and early summer that you previously felt helpless against.


An especially exciting time for your partnerships arrives on September 11 and 12, when the Sun, Jupiter, and Pluto all align. The Sun is the planet of truth and identity, Jupiter represents good luck and growth, and Pluto is lord of the underworld and all things hidden—like buried treasure! Pluto knows all secrets, and you will be let in on some juicy information! You may connect with a very powerful, in-the-know person (or group of people), Pisces.

September 12 is big for another reason, too: Venus, Uranus, and Saturn also align. You'll be itching for more freedom, but still have the support you crave while you try a new thing or go off on your own. There’s an electric spark in the air, and an unexpected shift in a relationship, friendship, or creative endeavor is likely; but a stable, mature energy is also present to help keep things from going off the rails. Your tastes and preferences are evolving…the same old just doesn’t work for you anymore!

Here’s my advice to you: There's a lot going on, but keeping things light and easy instead of getting bogged down by details is the best way to work with this astral energy. Making new commitments or decisions isn't the way to go at this time, since Mercury opposes Neptune on September 13. Things could easily become very complicated this week, so just go with the flow, don’t make any promises, and have fun. Important information is revealed when Mercury connects with Pluto on September 15, and people are in a place to hear each other out and consider different points of view on September 16, when Mercury connects with Jupiter—perhaps save an important conversation for these days rather than bringing it up sooner. The Sun meets Mercury on September 20, bringing about an especially notable conversation—just watch out: your partners may be picky know-it-alls at this moment!

Thankfully, this time, you're actually able to move forward around whatever issue comes up.
