This Month’s Highlights
Horoscopes for the Month
Void of Course Dates this Month
On September 6th, the New Moon occurs in the sign of Virgo, prompting a new beginning. This New Moon promises us opportunities to take charge of our lives by organizing, editing, refining work, and paying better attention to health. This is a fertile and productive time. We’re ready to take charge of our daily routines, work, or pursuit of wellness.
On September 20th, a Full Moon occurs in the sign of Pisces, reminding us of the need to consider our spiritual and emotional wellness. The key to balance lies in identifying and expressing our spiritual needs while maintaining order in our everyday lives. Neglecting either end of the Virgo-Pisces axis will surely backfire–we would either be living in chaos or excessive order.
This Full Moon inspires our imaginations, but it can also raise our determination to act on our dreams.
On September 27th, Mercury turns retrograde in the sign of Libra, and will continue its retrograde until October 18th, staying in the same sign throughout. During this period, we can be slow to reach a decision — possibly painfully slow, as our minds bounce back and forth between the alternatives, finding merits for any and all of them.
This retrograde cycle may affect our close partnerships the most. We might rethink old positions and relationships, and our observations tend to be particularly idealized. In a general sense, retrograde Mercury periods send us to the past for more or previously hidden information. They’re cycles for learning to let go of control, and for thinking about issues in a new way.

This Month’s Overview Horoscopes
The following horoscopes outline how the above astrological influences might affect each individual sign.
Overview horoscopes fill in here as I write them, ideally during the week before the month begins. It is not unusual to see some signs temporarily missing as I usually write the twelve of them over the course of a few days, and I always start with the featured sign of the month (birthday month).
September 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Aries:
Work, health, and partnerships are the top themes for you in September, dear Aries. You want to get on top of the little things in your life. One-to-one relationships are in focus all month, but even more so as the month progresses.
The New Moon on the 6th brings a charge of energy to your sector of work, health, and habits, and you're in a powerful position for fresh new starts in these areas of life. It can be an excellent period for special attention to getting things right, fixing errors, and sorting things out. Reorganizing your personal or workspace can be in focus. Special attention to health and wellness can pay off.
There are mutual benefits in close relationships this month. You can derive much joy from feeling part of a partnership. Mercury spends the month in your partnership sector, and Venus is there until the 10th. Further, Mars moves into this same sector on the 14th, and the Sun follows suit on the 22nd! It's a great time to negotiate, communicate, socialize, buddy up, and actively bring harmony to your relationships. From the 27th, when Mercury turns retrograde, aim to let things be, but stay available and interested.
These transits help improve your relationships or bring helpful people into your life. Others have something to show you about yourself. Your talents can shine through a partnership this month, or your relationship goals can be wonderfully motivating. There's animation in your life through others.
Influences encourage an optimistic, hopeful, and generous approach. People are putting their faith in you, and this, in turn, motivates you to step up your game even further! Group activities and associations could be avenues for fulfilling your goals.
Venus begins its transit of your intimacy sector on the 10th. You might enjoy some fun research, investigation, getting to know yourself, or looking for clues and hidden layers. Attracting support comes more naturally, if needed. You might decide to iron out tricky problems related to money or power dynamics in relationships. Venus here can bring more happiness and joy to your intimate life or encourage you to pay particular attention to a special project or endeavor.
While physical health and wellness are in strong focus, the Full Moon on the 20th can bring an epiphany about your emotional health. You're seeing the importance of taking time to recoup. It's a strong time for recognizing what to let go of so you can move forward in a better frame of mind. It can also be a time of intense awareness of situations that are no longer working for you and that need to change going forward. Concentrate on what you need to do for yourself in the long term.
Through others, you see yourself and your life more clearly. You take more pride in getting along with others and finding harmony and balance in your personal environment, especially after the 22nd. Still, Mercury begins its retrograde on the 27th, pointing to some need to backtrack, slow down, and reassess things. Going over old territory in a relationship can be helpful now.
You can learn something valuable about money, support, or a particular person in your life in the last week of September. Finances may improve through unusual, hidden, or unexpected channels, and you're tuning in quite beautifully to trends that can help generate business ideas and approaches. It's also a good time for finding ways to bring more balance, harmony, and beauty into your life, in general. Having an end goal in mind seems to work best for your mood and productivity. Meeting your responsibilities is incredibly satisfying.
September 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Taurus:
September brings excellent energy for taking care of odds and ends and making adjustments, dear Taurus, but it has its sweet spots as well! In fact, you begin the month with the Sun and Mars in your sector of joy, encouraging your desire to enjoy and express yourself. Particularly in the first two weeks, hobbies, leisure, and pleasure are in focus.
You're likely to treat your work, chores, wellness, and routines with extra care in September. Your work, health, and habits sector is busy: Mercury spends the month there, Venus transits it until the 10th, Mars moves in on the 14th, and the Sun follows suit on the 22nd!
With these transits, you're in a great position to bring more attention, heart, and intelligence to your daily routines, work, and services. You may enjoy your everyday life more thoroughly now, or you might make aesthetic or mood-boosting changes that improve your enjoyment of work, health pursuits, and daily goal-reaching. Daily living and work can get a nice boost, but people outside of your routines may not see you as much! You can be pretty busy and involved with getting your life into order. Mercury retrogrades in this area of your chart on the 27th, suggesting some need to backtrack, reassess projects or launch dates, and redo or rework specific tasks.
Certainly, you're more sensitive to imbalances in your environment. Aim to straighten out your daily affairs and schedules to minimize chaos as much as possible - you have plenty of cosmic support for this!
Your generosity and above-board approach win you some positive attention -- not to mention you feel great about it. If you provide services, you're in a great position to receive positive feedback. You're enjoying optimism about your career or general life direction, and coming up with new and exciting ideas for the future can be a pleasant pastime. Meaningful work is a real possibility now.
You can be preoccupied with health and work matters this month, but your appeal remains high, and this is especially so around the 6th and 29th. Venus moving through your partnership sector from the 10th forward can bring warm and supportive people into your life.
Influences especially support love relationships, flirtations, your social life, and your spirits. It can be a charming, hopeful, and optimistic period--you're ardent in your pursuit of what and who you want. The New Moon on the 6th can signal creative new beginnings and a fresh start. It's a time to explore new ways of doing entertainment, pleasure, leisure, and love and freeing yourself from limiting attitudes and situations.
The Full Moon on the 20th brings you in touch with a social matter that needs special attention. It's an eyes-wide-open time regarding your need for friendship, a feeling of belonging to something bigger than yourself, a satisfying social life, or your need/desire to contribute. You can find yourself in demand now! Emotions can be intense and a little raw around a Full Moon, and it's best to keep everything in moderation and think carefully before calling anyone out or making a big announcement.
Aim to take advantage of your extra drive to sort out your daily affairs and routines in September, but seek to moderate and pace yourself later in the month. You can certainly build, tweak, and organize. Friendships seem supportive of your dreams and goals, and conversations and interactions help you connect with your feelings. Aim to focus on essentials in your life and remind yourself of the value of a slow but steady approach.
September 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Gemini:
The focus is on your personal life this month, dear Gemini. While your domestic world continues to light up in September, you're reaching out and sharing more often.
Your social life speeds up, particularly after Mars enters your romance and play sector on the 14th. Mercury's retrograde from the 27th in the same area of your solar chart can bring on some communications problems but gives you time to explore and improve.
The New Moon on the 6th can inspire you to focus more heartfully on your home and family life, especially ideas that you've been toying with recently. New beginnings relate to home, family, comfort, safety, familiarity, and long-term business ventures. You can have a real sense of excitement about starting fresh or approaching these life departments in novel ways. Redecorating your home or establishing greater peace and comfort with your loved ones can figure strongly. It can be the time for a domestic makeover!
Radiant energy is with you for creative and romantic pursuits. Mercury spends the month in your sector of joy, Venus is there until the 10th, Mars moves in on the 14th, and the Sun follows suit on the 22nd. It's a busy area! You look terrific these days, and you might even be the object of desire. It can be tempting to turn up the charm, but aim instead for sincerity, as others will appreciate it the most. Love can be magical, and your powers of attraction run high.
This extra attention on your sector of leisure, enjoyment, and heartfelt activities puts you in a more expressive and playful frame of mind. You're getting in better touch with your need to create, entertain, or be entertained. You might enjoy new hobbies, creative outlets, and love interests or renewed attention to these things. Hobbies and leisure pursuits can be in pleasant focus, and your ideas go over well. Your feelings for someone can expand and grow, and a person who's holding a torch for you may express their appreciation. You might enjoy a new line of study or develop a current interest.
Mercury's retrograde on the 27th points to some need to slow down or backtrack in these life areas. You may not always get the words right, but you're bound to find unique channels for expressing yourself. It's possible that romance heats up but then reaches a plateau at this time. Aim to let things be a little and ride the wash from this point.
Mars moves into harmony with your sign on the 14th, supporting energy levels, courage, self-assertion, and confidence. With Mars animating your sector of joy, heart, creativity, and leisure, you are in perfect shape to pursue your heart's desire with confidence. A direct approach works best with this transit, but there can be times when you may need to check yourself if you're too impatient or presumptuous. For the most, however, this gives you a fantastic boost and encourages you to throw yourself into activities you genuinely enjoy.
Nevertheless, the Full Moon on the 20th pulls your attention to a career matter or outside responsibility. A recent project comes to a head, or circumstances point to a sudden need to attend to your work. It can be a time of revelations about your commitments and long-term goals. You're anxious to achieve your home-related goals, and special attention to obligations to the outside world or career seems the best route.
Creative projects that require a practical touch or detailed work can benefit from your special attention in the last week of the month. Laying down the law or boundaries can be helpful as well. Still, your imagination is on fire, and you might arrive at ideas or solutions intuitively, applying your creativity to practical matters. You have a stronger desire to make and produce beautiful things, and you may be thinking about ways to turn dreams into products, systems, or plans.
Even with solid attention to pursuing your joy, Mercury's retrograde turn on the 27th makes it wise or necessary to slow down, take stock, and review in-progress endeavors. Pace yourself, as balance and moderation are key.
September 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Cancer:
The desire to express yourself and share your experiences with others is powerful this month, dear Cancer. Errands, paperwork, learning, and social contact are bound to keep you on your toes in September. A burst of energy and confidence with any of these things occurs after the New Moon on the 6th. It may be best to focus on a constructive pursuit rather than scattering your energy–less is more this month! You could find the motivation to get going on a learning or communications project, make new connections, or get a handle on your daily affairs.
This New Moon is about starting fresh mentally, with communications projects or studies, with mobility, or regarding a personal interest. While a fresh start might sprout from a minor letdown or disappointment, you can be excited about approaching these life departments in new ways.
Still, there is a strong and growing focus on your home and family sector this month. Mercury spends the month in this area of your solar chart, and Venus stays there until the 10th. Moving into this sector are Mars on the 14th and the Sun on the 22nd, so it's well-represented!
These transits inspire growth and warmth in your personal life and with family, roommates, or close loved ones. You might buy something special or unique for the home or finding peace with your past in a meaningful way. Opportunities for love and friendship may emerge close to home. Support or funding for domestic pursuits can figure strongly. In spots, you can be pretty reluctant to spell things out for others, but doing so could make life a lot easier for you.
Your attention to home and family is strong all month, and transits generally facilitate warmer, more easygoing, and satisfying conditions on the domestic front. Some projects or ideas might go on the shelf from the 27th when Mercury turns retrograde. Delays are possible, and pacing yourself makes sense.
Still, with Mars heading into this same sector on the 14th, aim to honor your need for more time to yourself or time spent at home, but watch for defensiveness with others. Fortunately, you may get to the root of any lingering problems with family during this transit. As well, you can bring more energy and initiative to home-related projects.
Venus moves into your romance and play sector on the 10th, helping to smooth things over and perhaps bringing you some adoring attention. Your heart may not be quite ready to engage, but you can certainly benefit from the compliments coming your way.
Around the Full Moon on the 20th, you may have an opportunity or an itch to expand your horizons, whether it means venturing out, growing your reach through publishing and promotion, or broadening your mental horizons. It can be a time when a project reaches a head or is shared, or schooling culminates. However, watch for a bloated schedule. Try not to overcommit to things now.
You might experience revelations related to your belief system, personal philosophy or outlook, legal or publishing matters, and experiences related to non-routine enjoyment of life.
From the 22nd, you're taking more pride and interest in your domestic life, family, foundation, or closest ties. In many ways, this is a time for anchoring or nesting on a psychological level. It's not the most adventurous or outgoing cycle in the Sun's journey through your solar chart, but it's a valuable period for gaining a stronger sense of self. Soothe yourself with familiar activities and step into your comfort zone for a while! It will help you meet the demands of the outside world later.
There can be wonderfully freeing opportunities ahead of you, and the work you do now on clearing up problem areas will improve your ability to snatch them up when the time comes. Reorganizing, redecorating, and connecting in healthier ways can be in focus. A focus on letting go of excess helps clear the path ahead.
September 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Leo:
September brings continued focus on your money, valuables, resources, assets, and talents, dear Leo, but learning and communications are becoming increasingly important.
There is a beautiful, practical focus for you this month, and you can get your life into order in fundamental ways. The New Moon on the 6th occurs in your resources sector, motivating you to take charge of your financial affairs. It's about starting fresh with money or business or taking your comfort and security more seriously. New beginnings may sprout from a minor letdown or disappointment, but it can be exciting to approach these life departments in new and improved ways.
Mercury spends the month in your communications sector, and Venus is there until the 10th. Moving into this area of your solar chart are Mars on the 14th and the Sun on the 22nd. These ingresses sharpen your thinking and communications. You are likely to be quite busy coming up with new ideas and learning various new things.
While a retrograde Mercury from the 27th may lead to some misunderstandings, you're nevertheless expressing yourself with remarkable flair. If you focus on slowing yourself down, this can be an advantageous period. You might discover different ways to connect, whether this is about communicating or commuting, perhaps because current ones are not working well. You might rediscover old interests or revisit past studies with success.
It's an excellent time to exchange ideas, learn new things, and connect with others. You might hear something of great use to you, boosting your understanding. You want to expand and grow a project, personal writings, or a connection. It's a great time to spend time with someone you love or for mingling and gathering information. Subject to improvements are things that connect you to information and people, such as new or improved cars, bikes, phones, computers and devices, and education. There is more passion and excitement in learning now.
Mars moving into your communications sector on the 14th can stimulate your desire to learn and explore. It can also be impatient, and while this can be a busy time for communicating, connecting, and commuting, do watch for impatience as you make your way around and express yourself. You're inclined to pour tremendous energy into your interests, projects, and studies, and you're more ambitious and determined. It's a wonderful time to push yourself a little, as long as you respect your need for rest and healthy living.
September's influences are also notable for bringing more harmony and warmth to your home life, despite its busyness. From the 10th forward, Venus transits your sector of heart, home, and family.
The Full Moon on the 20th could bring a scurry of activity surrounding a money matter or epiphanies about a close relationship. Revelations can occur about issues of support, dependency, or attachment. You are determined to pursue your desires and act on your dreams. Pay close attention to what surfaces now, whether this is new information or new emotions (or both), but wait until you've gained some perspective before jumping to conclusions.
The Sun cycle, beginning on the 22nd, is more about discovery and branching out than specializing. Once Mercury turns retrograde on the 27th, you may need to revise or revamp a current project before you move forward. Be especially vigilant with applications, interviews, and schooling. Pay special attention to communications and transportation equipment and devices.
A Sun-Saturn harmonious aspect can help ground you in the last days of the month, encouraging you to simplify your life, particularly on personal levels. You appreciate steadiness and reliability. Even with Mercury retrograde, seeing something in realistic terms helps you prepare well.
September 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Virgo:
This month brings a strong focus on personal changes, money, and organization, dear Virgo. If you need to sort out your finances, it's a good time to do so, although it can involve some challenges. The month is vital for personal triumphs, small yet significant changes, and financial boosts.
Fortunately, the New Moon on the 6th is in your sign and puts you in charge. You have the power to make essential changes, and part of this can involve a personal makeover related to your attitudes and approach to the world.
This lunation is all about you and is supported by Uranus, putting you in just the right frame of mind for making improvements and changes. It's your yearly opportunity to begin anew, start fresh, and reinvent yourself. It's an exceptionally dynamic and creative time when you might decide to present yourself in a brand new way.
Mercury, your planetary ruler, spends all of September in your money and values sector, sticking around there for longer than usual. It's an excellent cycle for analyzing your finances and belongings, including spending and saving habits. On the 27th, however, Mercury turns retrograde, and for a few weeks, you're likely to look back before moving forward. Mercury is in its shadow period from the 6th, and it's a good idea to take your time with new beginnings on financial fronts from then onward. You might turn your attention to works in progress. Revamping a project can be an excellent thing now.
Mercury's retrograde, beginning on the 27th, primarily affects your personal resources, meaning review is necessary before moving forward, particularly when it comes to money matters. You may need to look back to more profitable times for clues before you look forward.
Mars in your sign until the 14th continues to get you going, often for your benefit, although sometimes it's a little too easy to get all riled up. With Mars and later the Sun in opposition with Neptune this month, you can be seeking inspiration. Relationships can sometimes feel draining, or there is uncertainty to deal with now. You may need to let go of the desire for others to be transparent about their intentions, just for the time being, and to back down and give people space.
With work and business this month, a winning attitude attracts favorable circumstances. You are strongly motivated to make your daily life better. You might also see more clearly how your efforts contribute to increased income right now, and it's satisfying and motivating.
Mars moves out of your sign and into your resources sector on the 14th, boosting your desire to live with more security and comfort. You're motivated to take action to improve your current circumstances during this transit that will last through most of October. You more readily identify sources of waste or fear and take steps to put them behind you.
The Full Moon on the 20th has an eyes-wide-open effect on a partnership or your feelings for someone. It reminds you to honor a significant relationship or to work on your relationship goals. Relationships are spirited.
The Sun moves into your resources sector on the 22nd, and you're likely to find this new cycle grounding. You might take advantage of this energy to focus on being more emotionally present in various areas of your life.
It can also signal a time for making the most of your natural talents and abilities. Opportunities can arrive that have you taking charge of your income and valuables, although it's most likely that you're making these opportunities.
Meeting your responsibilities is satisfying this month--be sure to put concerted effort and energy into something worthwhile to you. As the month advances, you have a unique sense of what is truly valuable to you and of your capabilities.
Mercury is retrograde from September 27th to October 18th. Some of the decisions made and projects started in the last couple of weeks can require reconsideration, or there can be delays to handle. It's a time for redoing and refining work that is already underway, for journaling, and for backtracking over the past to find answers that were not obvious then but entirely relevant now.
Even so, there is a real chance you arrive at an understanding with someone in the last few days of September. You may benefit from some healthy escapism that helps you let go of tension and enjoy life's beautiful moments. A partner or friend's acceptance, understanding, or conversation can help you relax.
At the same time, your responsibilities feel more natural to meet, and you tend to embrace a realistic perspective since it allows you to make better plans. Activities that involve organizing and tidying are in favor. Plans with modest goals are more likely to fare the best. You may be discovering new ways to earn more or to enjoy what you're doing--and perhaps both.
September 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Libra:
September brings an interesting mix of energies to your life, dear Libra. Sometimes you feel very much in the driver's seat, and other times you're not sure who's in charge! Especially as the month progresses, you come into your own.
You host all of the personal planets (the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars) in your sign at various points this month, and this increases your independence and power, but at times you could feel a little alone with your decisions.
Venus begins the month in your sign, and Mercury is in Libra as well, for an extended stay. With Venus in your sign until the 10th, your finer and more appealing qualities are in emphasis. There is a major focus on your personality this month, even though it's vital that you get some extra rest or make time for reflection and personal space in the first three weeks. In September, exploring your inner world is crucial as you gather your energy and center yourself for busier times to come.
Some important influences are urging you to rest, recoup, and relax this month. The New Moon on the 6th is one such reminder – you may need to take care of loose ends now. Working behind the scenes benefits you. The rest and privacy you need are yours, although there may be plenty of stimulating dramas playing out around you.
When Venus in your sign harmonizes with Jupiter on the 5-6, people see you in a most favorable light. You're likely to stumble upon opportunities for cooperation and shared happiness. Creative or romantic matters can thrive. Rediscovering a passion, interest, hobby, or love may be in focus.
From the 10th, financial matters improve. Money or business ideas can be golden, as you're sensing what others need and want. Money could come through unusual or hidden sources. Putting more creativity or heart into what you're doing can be rewarding.
From the 14th, Mars is in your sign, bringing more positive energy, particularly from close relationships, as well as increased charisma, courage, energy, and confidence to pursue your goals. You may not be entirely clear about which direction to head until after the Sun enters your sign on the 22nd. However, it's a real blast of energy and motivation. Your desire for independence comes full-on.
Mercury in your sign all month ensures you’re busy and engaged, although sometimes a little too "on" for your own good. Take opportunities to clear your head from time to time. The retrograde period starting on the 27th may help with just that — it’s a time to catch up.
This is one of your more communicative phases of the year. It’s a time when you’re not only reaching out more often, but you’re also communicating with more impact. You might prefer to take the lead with mental or intellectual tasks and make executive decisions.
The Full Moon on the 20th can bring strong awareness of a work or health matter, and the days following it may involve some sorting and adjustments based on new information coming to light.
The Sun in your sign gives you more power and courage from the 22nd forward. With Mars in Libra in harmony with Saturn on the 25th, be willing to start small and work yourself up to the big stuff. This patience will reward you. Meeting your responsibilities and building something valuable can be satisfying.
Similarly, when the Sun in your sign harmonizes with Saturn on the 29th, thinking more about long-term security than immediate needs can help you develop excellent plans and strategies. Your ability to concentrate is strengthening. Simple activities like decluttering or regular exercise can help you see more clearly, and a little self-discipline goes a long way. You're also a little more humble to the lessons of life now, giving you more maturity and better judgment for handling problems or taking control of critical areas of your life.
Mercury begins its retrograde in your sign on the 27th, prompting a few weeks of reevaluating recent projects. Perhaps the greatest challenge is gaining others' understanding. People may not be "getting" your ideas temporarily, or you could be waiting on more information. This retrograde, lasting until October 18th, does suggest some withdrawal and introspection. However, this can work in your favor as you seem just out of reach and all the more intriguing. At the same time, you’re taking some time to feel things out, which can help you make better decisions.
September 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Scorpio:
Good energy is with you for networking and the support of friends this month, dear Scorpio. Still, there's also a strong theme of introspection, preparation, and attention to physical and emotional needs. A lot is brewing under the surface.
With an emphasis on your social sector as you begin September, you could be forming solid, long-lasting connections and friendships. Your sense of community is strong, and emotional satisfaction can come through your interactions. If you need to start fresh with a friend or group connection, transits tend to support it, especially after the New Moon on the 6th. A slight letdown might occur before moving forward with a new plan for happiness and fulfillment.
You might perform a generous act behind the scenes or anonymously, or you might thoroughly enjoy your personal time with Venus in your privacy sector until the 10th. Its harmony with Jupiter on the 5-6 boosts your domestic world. The comforts of home and family or solitude are pleasant and heartwarming. An open mind and heart help you grow and understand yourself and your personal relationships. Coming to someone's aid can be rewarding. Your love life can require some review – this is not the time for pushing things forward.
Mercury spends the month in your privacy sector, Mars moves into this area of your solar chart on the 14th, followed by the Sun on the 22nd. There can be support from behind the scenes or an unexpected source, perhaps something you had forgotten or overlooked. It's an excellent time to find ways to soothe your mind and meditate more often. Some reflection and discretion can benefit you now.
Mars in your soul sector from the 14th suggests a period of transformations and renovations, mainly on an emotional level. It's a time for strong signals from your subconscious, spurring you on and pointing your attention to problems that you may have overlooked or buried. You may feel a little less energetic as your priorities shuffle around, but redirecting your energies into tying up loose ends can do wonders for your mood now.
On the other hand, lovely Venus moves through your sign from the 10th forward, boosting your appeal and bringing you, quite gently, out of your shell. While you are certainly attracting positive and often romantic attention with this transit, your heart may not be ready to fully process it quite yet. A lot is going on inside of you and under the surface, but this air of unavailability may very well boost your appeal further. People see you in an especially good light as you host Venus, especially around the 29th.
The Full Moon on the 20th can bring a romantic or creative matter to your sudden attention, and emotions can be overflowing as you explore your feelings. It's an intuitive and creative Full Moon related to romance, creativity, children, or hobbies--a mission to improve your life in these areas can emerge.
From the 22nd, you commit further to getting more time for reflection, rest, and recollection. You are gathering your strength for busier times to come, but this isn't an idle time. In fact, you can actively reflect upon recent events and shedding attitudes and situations that have run their natural course. It can be a time of connecting with your more spiritual side. It's possible that you feel a little lost, unnoticed, or ignored until you understand the purpose of this period: recharge.
Mercury's retrograde here from the 27th reinforces the need to look back before pushing forward. Goals may not be clear or could need some refinement. This is a clean-up period on emotional or psychic levels, so aim to use it well!
Focus on one small area of your life at a time to get back on track, organized, or otherwise running smoothly. You can be especially productive around the home. You can feel quite motivated to make changes that help you simplify and strengthen your life. Getting rid of unnecessary material things can be helpful, and so can weeding out problematic thinking or attitudes that are not doing you any favors.
September 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Sagittarius:
People continue to take notice of you more than usual this month, dear Sagittarius, and you're quite ready and willing to perform. It's a period of higher visibility, attention to career, and networking. There can be new energy in your career or a new beginning of sorts, from the 6th forward.
Still, Mercury's retrograde begins in your social sector on the 27th. In the days surrounding this date, it's a good idea to watch what you say, particularly on social media or with friends and groups, as the possibility of misunderstandings is strong.
People gravitate to your optimism and generosity of spirit. Others might extend kindnesses to you until the 10th, and you might enjoy new or improved friendships. The need to work cooperatively within the framework of a group can emerge.
You'll likely come out ahead in the finances department, or you'll be putting in the groundwork for future increases in income.
With the New Moon on the 6th in your career and reputation sector, you may need a fresh start, redo, or new commitment to life path goals. It's a time for redefining your objectives and committing to a plan or responsibility.
From the 10th forward, Venus moves through your privacy sector. With this transit, you could find more pleasure in private or quiet moments, although it can also be a time for reassessment or a state of limbo with love relationships. Ideally, you take a break from the action and sort out your feelings or take more personal space.
Still, September brings some shifting of energy towards your happiness goals and social life. The liveliness that Mars energies bring to friendships from the 14th forward may be quite welcome. Watch, however, for the drama level to rise too high.
In fact, Mercury spends all month in your social sector, Venus is there to the 10th, Mars moves in on the 14th, and the Sun follows suit on the 22nd. September can be an inspiring time to connect with others or dream up satisfying plans for the future. You can be in a fantastic position to brainstorm, team up, collaborate, and share ideas, techniques, and plans.
There has been extra attention to your friendships and career in your life, but the Full Moon on the 20th can pull your attention to personal matters and problems closer to home temporarily. Attending to family and domestic affairs and restoring some balance to your life can bring rewards now. You recognize your needs for security, comfort, and nurture, and it becomes clear that you should strive towards balancing these things with your worldly goals. As your outsides responsibilities accelerate, you feel incredibly motivated to improve your personal life.
Participating in some way can be satisfying, and putting ego needs to the side in favor of group efforts can be helpful with the Sun's move into your solar eleventh house on the 22nd. While it's not yet the time to move projects or new plans forward with Mercury retrograde from the 27th, this is a reasonable period for building momentum and inspiration.
Mercury's retrograde can mean that new initiatives should wait, and you should watch for overblowing an issue. Aim to wait and see.
Nevertheless, you're in good shape for pouring energy into practical projects, teamwork, personal interests, and studies in the last week of the month.
There can be opportunities to achieve your goals or improve your life through friends, groups, alliances, and networks. Past friendships can figure more powerfully in your life from the 27th forward. Good advice can be exchanged, and working together can be productive. Organizing and editing activities are preferred.
September 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Capricorn:
September's energies place the focus on your life path goals, responsibilities, visions, and learning or sharing ideas, dear Capricorn. Prospects from business or online activities can improve overall, even if there are some fluctuations. It can be a wonderful time for growing a business, bank account, or idea. Reinvesting in something you care about can be exciting.
The New Moon on the 6th can serve as a jumpstart or booster for your spirit. You might make a new commitment to learning and studies, or you could be working on promoting or publishing your work. New initiatives related to expanding your mind can be in focus. Learning, guiding, sharing, and envisioning are potent themes in September.
Still, all the personal planets and luminaries spend at least some time in your career and reputation sector. Mercury stays there all month, Venus until the 10th, Mars from the 14th forward, and the Sun from the 22nd onward.
These transits give you a professional or public voice and are vital for improving your reputation. There can be opportunities for recognition, a meeting of minds with someone in authority, a significant sale, or another type of boost or elevation. You can be feeling quite optimistic about your career, responsibilities, path ahead, or social standing.
Mars heading into your career sector on the 14th fires up ambitions, and it will stick around there until almost the end of October. You're building momentum and more wholeheartedly pursuing your career and life path goals during this cycle. A conservative approach in business is prudent around the 25th and 29th – you'll benefit from slowing down if you've been trying to push something too fast. It's a time for coming up with practical and workable long-term life strategies and plans. Your ambition is burning bright, and you're pushing a little harder.
The Full Moon on the 20th can bring a scurry of activity as you race to meet deadlines, run errands, or take care of paperwork. There can be a revelation or epiphany regarding learning, transportation, connecting, or communications.
With the Sun's move to the top of your solar chart on the 22nd, you might take on new responsibilities, or you might focus on achievement and goal-setting. Pride can improve your reputation, but too much of it will have the opposite effect. Although this is a take-charge time for professional and public efforts, Mercury's retrograde on the 27th points to the need to wait to push some plans forward.
From the 27th, there can be some complications and misunderstandings on the job or with your reputation, or difficulties juggling a full schedule. Public and professional communications need extra attention - be sure to be as straightforward as possible, but avoid off-the-cuff remarks and too-quick reactions.
These issues are due to Mercury's retrograde in your career and reputation sector from September 27th to October 18th. Slowdowns now can mean that you don't meet goals you've previously set for yourself, but the revisions and edits eventually work to your advantage, as they firm up your work. In fact, you're in great shape for looking to the past for answers regarding how to manage current responsibilities.
Fortunately, in the last few days of the month, a friend or network could be integral to getting everything into perspective, or someone's thoughtfulness lifts your spirits. Forgiveness comes naturally. As well, finding ways to streamline and simplify your life in your daily routines can be rewarding.

With these transits, you might focus on special relationships or specialized, focused projects and activities. Conversations and interactions tend to be a little more profound than usual, or they don't hold your interest for long. You're not content with living your life without growing, changing, and improving. What is going on behind the scenes or inside yourself assumes far more importance to you at this time. You might choose to put your faith or trust in someone, and this feels good! Certainly, letting go of the negative energy of mistrust can be therapeutic.

Your feelings tend to be easy to express and understand, and when it comes to love, your ideals are high.
The Full Moon on the 20th is in your sign, bringing buried feelings to the surface and possibly prompting a mini personal crisis as you become aware of what you're missing in your life. As exciting and enlightening as this is, watch that you don't jump to speak too soon. This Full Moon is excellent for making discoveries about your true feelings. Relationship goals or a particular person in your life can be at the heart of changes you want to make now.
The spotlight can be on intimate connections and sharing or financial and emotional support. You seek out a project that you can explore in depth. Keep in mind that Mercury is retrograde from the 27th, and you may want to hold off on brand new initiatives. There can be minor complications with money, sharing, intimacy, and dependencies during this period. Waiting for answers on financial and relationship fronts can figure strongly. Even so, it may give you a chance to better pace yourself.
In the last few days of the month, you can have an important revelation, perhaps involving letting something go and then putting your faith in the universe that it will find its way to where it belongs. Energy flows particularly well for relationships and creative pursuits. You tend to attract love and friendship into your life through shared intellectual interests. Still, you're also interested in getting organized and simplifying or downsizing for more clarity of mind and purpose. You might enjoy some support or protective influences coming from unexpected places or from behind the scenes.
