Welcome to Virgo season, Aries! It might not seem like you and Virgo have much in common on the surface, dear ram, but you’re both very sincere, curious people, and while you always strive to be number one, Virgo strives for perfection. For you, Virgo season is all about getting organized, figuring out what your goals are—and building a daily routine that will help you achieve them—as well as focusing on health and wellness.


But the beginning of the month isn’t just about your goals—it's also about fun, thanks to Mercury and Venus's harmonious connection on September 3, which brings exciting invitations to spend time with your partners or to connect with people you'd like to partner with. The Mood is social and outgoing!

The energy shifts more toward your chores and schedule on September 5, when Mercury enters Virgo, and on September 6, when Saturn ends its retrograde in Capricorn—these aspects will help you move forward around your professional goals. September 7 is an especially dynamic day at work and surrounding money, as communication planet Mercury, genius Uranus, and the planet of longevity and hard work, Saturn, align—just watch out for some scheduling confusion, general miscommunications, or even sleepiness, on September 7 when the Sun opposes hazy Neptune.

Venus clashes with your planetary ruler, Mars, on September 8, bringing a dash of excitement your way and inspiring you to take action toward your work and relationship goals. The new moon in Virgo arrives on September 9, creating a clean slate when it comes to your work, your schedule, and your ways—this is a wonderful time to dump a bad habit or add something to your routine that would benefit you, like daily meditation. Also during this new moon, Venus will enter Scorpio, illuminating a very personal sector of your chart—this will be mega intense for your sex life! Venus is generally an easy going, charming, lovely planet…but in Scorpio, the mood is sexier and more intense. Venus doesn’t wear lace in Scorpio, she wears leather—things are going to get kinky! And the new moon in Virgo will ensure that you have enough time and that you’ve done your work, so that you can enjoy growing closer with your intimate partners. This could bode very well for you financially, too, especially when it comes to tricker issues like debts, taxes, or inheritances.


A shift in energy arrives as Mars enters Aquarius on September 10, revving up the sector of your chart that rules your social life. You may have left a social circle or some sort of group or organization in the last few months—or booted someone out of one—due to the Mars retrograde we all contended with this summer. Now that Mars is moving ahead in Aquarius, you feel energized to connect with people, share ideas, and fight for causes you believe in. Just watch out for September 18, when Mars clashes with Uranus—unexpected tempers will flare, but you're familiar with these issues, having encountered them previously around August 1.

Big changes are taking place around money, work, and your reputation this month, Aries, but you need to take it slow (you tend to rush into things!) because the dynamic energy in the air also comes with confusion. Don't get all worried and paranoid about these uncertainties—it's only natural to feel unsettled in a time of change, or even for miscommunications to take place. The Sun, Jupiter, and Saturn’s alignment on September 11 and 12 will be phenomenal for your work and finances, but communication planet Mercury’s opposition to Neptune on September 13 begs that you slow down and not rush into agreements.

Venus opposes Uranus on September 12, bringing some especially exciting and unexpected news about money. If you’ve been tied to someone financially, this may find you breaking free. A valuable piece of information comes your way on September 15, when Mercury connects with Pluto, so wait until then to make any agreements, but be conservative with your promises since Mercury connects with Jupiter on September 16, finding people overly optimistic.

Mercury enters Libra on September 21 and the Sun enters Libra during the autumnal equinox on September 22—Libra season is relationship season for you, Aries, so this is a very exciting time to connect with people! Just watch out for a rocky few days: Mercury connects with Mars—but clashes with Saturn—on September 23, and the Sun clashes with Saturn on September 25 before connecting with Mars on September 27. There will be a stop-and-go energy, which is very annoying to you, Aries! Obstacles around connecting with people will pop up, and there is a mood of rejection in the air. It’s important that you act maturely at this time.

The full moon in Aries arrives on September 24! Full moons bring heightened emotional energy, and because this one is in your fiery sign, dear ram, you’ll feel lit up from the inside, ready to release the past, fully embodied in your truth, and prepared to confront whatever needs confronting. Again, Libra season is about relationships for you, and this full moon is a time to get in tune with yourself and your needs in that regard. A confrontation between you and a partner (or a frenemy) is likely, and a climax around an issue that’s been building in your relationships will come to a head. You’re not afraid of intensity, Aries. In fact, as the month comes to a close, you're going to feel even more rallied by the heavens to show the world what a courageous leader you are when Pluto ends its retrograde on September 30. You’re going to change the world…but first, the full moon needs you to honor your emotional needs. Good luck this month, and see you in October!
