You are in a powerful mode of self-discovery, Virgo, in this your birthday month. This additionally involves important others in your life in a quite significant way, as your image in their reflection becomes a significant key to your own development. Your take on partnership in general, which could be termed idealism, tempered by realism, also comes into play. You are engaged in building a synthesis of approaches that includes the viewpoints of others, as your own true identity continues to emerge. There is a degree of experimentation and yet also of limitation and caution in the current astro weather. Any form of enlightenment that comes to you this month in terms of sudden epiphany is not to be dismissed because of potential doubts, although you will likely steer a middle course, as is wise, that avoids jumping off the deep end prematurely. You are in process of harnessing new realizations and adjustments to your existing systems of belief for long-term effects on your creativity and your more fully informed self-expression.

The Sun in Virgo for the past ten days, and for most of September, means that the universe is offering energizing support and vitality to your sign. The recent New Moon in Leo, from mid-August, has also brought your unconscious process further into the light of day. Your dreams continue to be important, pointing the way for hidden patterns to come forward and to be examined. The Sun in your sign offers clarity, and objectivity, which means it's a good time to take stock, and delineate some of your big goals. This is your time of the year, and a good one to assess your overall direction, your body, your insides, your image, and maybe even splurge a little. Set intentions for the year ahead, and adjust your sails.
September begins with a late evening Full Moon in Pisces, in your relationship sector, highlighting partners and collaborators. Uranus in Taurus sextile the Full Moon brings new insights. There could be a culmination regarding a situation you’re in, which could feel both emotional and illuminating. The Full Moon clarifies the current landscape of your partnerships. You might need to think outside of the box when it comes to a relationship for the solutions to emerge. There could be tension between your needs and the needs of someone close to you, which could feel polarizing. You may be willing to go the extra mile for a loved one but remember that sacrificing your own desires or comfort for the sake of someone else may not be ideal. Assess the terrain and ask yourself if the compromise is worth it. This timing also helps you assess your investments to ensure you are still getting what you need.
On September 3rd, Mercury squares the Nodes of the Moon and creative tension between your career and your home life is indicated. There may be opportunities to further yourself in your chosen vocation that requires a compromise. Mercury enters Libra on the 5th, and will transit there for most of September, emphasizing your income and also your values. Your obligations toward others may feel hard to reconcile with your current needs. You may feel bound by a current engagement, which perhaps doesn’t allow you much elbow room.
Venus enters Leo on the 5th for the rest of September, which is your opportunity to revise what loves mean to you. Venus in your soul sector asks that you connect to your sense of specialness, and what makes you unique. Venus in Leo has royal dispositions, and demands to be adored. Can you acknowledge these needs within yourself?
The Sun in Virgo trines Jupiter on the 8th and 9th, carrying with it a new sense of creative or romantic potential, while Mars stationing retrograde in Aries on the same day augurs the beginning of negotiations and revisions that could take you all the way through to mid-November, when Mars turns direct. You are more inspired than ever to go after what you want. Intimate relationships might be up for shifts in energy or reconsideration. This Mars retrograde could be your cue to sever a bond or a contract that is overly burdensome.
Mercury in Libra opposes Chiron in Aries on the 9th and 10th, and the Sun in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces from the 10th to the 12th potentially bringing up inner wounding or perhaps emotionally painful conversations. Vulnerabilities might need to be addressed while the Sun-Neptune opposition augurs some confusing or unclear circumstances in your partnerships. It may be difficult to talk about the issues coming up. Venus in Leo trines Chiron in Aries on the 12th and 13th, and then squares Uranus in Taurus. This series of aspects highlights the unpredictability permeating this time especially when it comes to your partnerships.
The New Moon your sign on September 17th gives you a vitalizing fresh start. Questions concerning your identity could come up, in a positive way, and what you are currently up to. Strong Saturn at this timing implies roadblocks to your creative projects, and yet also the dedication that you will need to surmount these issues. This is also your incentive to be honest about your needs. The New Moon brings a fresh cycle of growth, and it is time to get clear about what you require to be happy. No one else can do it for you.
Your ruler, Mercury, currently resides in Libra, while squaring Jupiter in Capricorn. With this aspect, pleasure, creativity, romance, and children are highlighted. You just must be careful not to go too fast, too far. The New Moon is also squaring her Nodes on the Gemini/Sagittarius axis. You have everything in your toolbox to upgrade your game. You have the grounded discipline, and creative intelligence to move yourself forward. The North Node of the Moon currently transiting in your vocational sector is urging you to keep pushing for your goals.
During the week of September 21st, Mercury in Libra squares Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, and opposes Mars in Aries. You might have to reassess your budget to make sure you are on track. You also may need to spend more money than you anticipated on a project or may have to work extra hard to finalize a contract.
The Sun enters Libra on September 22nd signalling the first day of fall in the Northern Hemisphere and spring in the Southern Hemisphere. The Sun transiting in Libra for the next month continues to emphasize your finances and the adjustments you need to make.

The end of September is colored by Saturn stationing direct in Capricorn late on the 28th, while squaring Mars retrograde in Aries. You may already to be familiar with this tense signature, from prior experience when Mars squared Saturn in August, around the 24th. There was already a lot of Saturn in the picture of September, so it is very likely that things may not be moving as fast as you would want them to, but a disciplined and steady pace will yet get you there.
