This is going to be a rather slow month for everyone… five planets and Chiron are retrograde! Oh, and Mercury begins to retrograde on the 27th. In your case, Aries, your closest connections will be affected by these orbs spinning backwards. Friends, lovers, colleagues–you may need to readjust your relationships with all of them. But here’s a nice bonus: Uranus is retrograde in your house of earning and saving more money, which should actually make things calmer, saner and more profitable.
Sun and Mars in Virgo
Virgo is your house of efficiency, and September is definitely going to have that “back to school” feeling for you. You always feel this way in September, but this year you’ll feel more motivated than usual. That’s because red hot Mars will be in Virgo until the 14th. A new moon occurs in this sector on the 7th. If you need to get caught up on things, this is the best time in 2021 to do so. Virgo is also your house of diet and exercise, so you have no excuses whatsoever when it comes to getting fit.
Mars enters your house of serious love on the 14th
Romance will definitely start to heat up when this happens, but in what kind of way? On September 5th and 8th you could be at odds with a lover. Someone may be a bit too bossy, hopefully not you. It’s also possible on the 8th that you’re feeling “not good enough”. Well, that feeling isn’t going to last too long… sassy Venus glides into your house of sex on the 10th, and you will certainly get your mojo back.
A full moon is coming on the 22nd in your house of closure and moving on. This will create a “should I stay or should I go” kind of energy in rocky relationships. That said, the full moon could bring a happy relationship to some form of closure, like getting engaged or moving in together. Single people could end their days of being alone.
But…Mercury goes retrograde in your commitment zone!
Yup, this happens on the 27th. If you are in a new relationship, take your time and don’t let fabulous sex fool you. If you’re already in a serious relationship when Mercury begins to back slide, it’s time to have some major talks, especially about joint assets. I’m talking about real estate, investments, living together, combining joint bank accounts and so on. Business partnerships could also slow down once Mercury retrogrades.
Put a gold star on the 6th!
This is an excellent day for all twelve signs of the zodiac. In astrology, a trine is the most harmonious aspect possible. There are three of them on the 6th, which is awesome. For Aries, the trines occur in houses that govern your career primarily, followed by love and health.
Pluto is active in Capricorn, your house of kudos, respect and leadership. The best days in September for career progress are the 6th, 7th (the new moon in Virgo), the 16th and the 29th.
Sun enters Libra on 9/22
The Sun enters Libra, your house of committed relationships, on the 22nd. Over the next four weeks you will be quite focused on forming serious bonds with a lover and/or a business connection. Remember, there are five planets in retrograde and Mercury starts to spin backward in this sector in just a few days. Don’t expect things to take off like a rocket.
Full moon in Aquarius Pisces on September 20
Pisces is your twelfth house of wrapping things up so that you can close them out once and for all. This includes personal habits that you know have to go. It could mean a toxic job or frenemy who is too much of a Debbie Downer. It could be recognizing that you need to speak to a therapist in order to improve your emotional health. You know deep inside what has you frustrated and what needs to change. Believe it or not, all of these planets in retrograde can help you. When they start to slow down in the heavens, they encourage reflection.« This Week’s Horoscope Today’s Horoscope »
