Monthly Horoscope: Aquarius, September 2023

Welcome to Virgo season, dear Aquarius! 

Money is a major theme for you during Virgo season, and you may be settling a debt or working out a financial issue with a partner. Virgo is all about clarity and organization, so if your bills are stacked in a messy pile, it might finally be time to take care of business! 

Venus retrograde ends in Leo on September 3, marking forward momentum in your relationships. Over the last few weeks, you may have learned a lot about who you want in your life and what you want your relationships to look like, and as Venus moves forward, a new cycle begins in your partnerships. You could be meeting someone new, or beginning a new chapter in an existing relationship. 


Mercury retrograde in Virgo aligns with Jupiter in Taurus on September 4, finding you thinking back to exciting plans and discussions that took place on August 9. Big news is shared, and the mood is generally optimistic and open-minded, even if things are moving a little more slowly thanks to the retrograde. Jupiter also begins its retrograde in Taurus on September 4, which can find you reimagining how to organize things at home. You might also find yourself feeling especially nostalgic, perhaps reconnecting with the past.

The sun meets Mercury retrograde on September 6, bringing an important realization about the intersection of money and relationships. New information can help you process the past in some way. The sun aligns with Jupiter on September 8, inspiring emotionally expansion and finding you feeling liberated from the past and ready to explore new opportunities. A fresh start arrives during the new moon in Virgo on September 14, and you might gain a clean slate in your finances or find a new approach to share your life with someone. There’s a clean break from the past. 


Mercury retrograde ends and the sun aligns with your ruling planet Uranus in Taurus on September 15, which, along with the new moon, marks forward momentum in conversations about money or partnership. A powerful emotional breakthrough can take place. The sun symbolizes ego, and Uranus is the planet of genius, innovation, and surprise, so their harmonious alignment might spell unexpected transformation. An exciting upgrade could take place at home or in your personal life. Mercury retrograde’s end finds conversations moving along at a quicker pace, and by the time Mercury clears its post-retrograde shadow on September 30, new topics are up for discussion.
