In the panorama of 2021, September is a relatively calm month. After the “August rush” of fiery Leo energies, we shift into a month strong in the elements of earth and air. We can get our feet back on the ground and our heads clear.
Sun and Mars in Virgo harmonize with rebel Uranus and intense Pluto, supporting productive alignment with the forces of change. Mercury, Venus and, later in the month, Sun and Mars in Libra, make trines to Saturn and Jupiter, harmonizing our connections. In July and August, strong Leo energies brought up issues around our inner child, stirring the fires of emotional drama. Virgo helps us retrieve a daily focus on healing and productivity. Strengthened by trines to Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius, Libra’s influence takes us beyond the passivity of mere charm to favor effective, fortunate work, promotional activities and collaborations.
With Virgo’s ruler Mercury joining a gang of five retrogrades, inner work will be important. In a year that hasn’t been easy, the Fall Equinox is a time to reconnect with our goals and reassess our progress. Considering the rest of autumn’s tensions and Eclipse season, September is a month when we can get back on track.
On Thursday, September 2, assertive Mars in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces. On the one hand, our drive may seem quenched. On the other, we can make headway by releasing perfectionism and taking shortcuts to spiritual and creative goals.
On Saturday, September 4, Mercury in charming Libra trines Saturn in friendly Aquarius. Reconnect with your innate charm and diplomacy and focus them to rebuild key connections.

We’ll be on the portal of the New Moon of Monday, September 6, when Mercury also enters shadow. If we have something new to begin, we can use today to clarify our intentions and set them in motion however we can, while Mercury is still direct.
The New Moon is in productive Virgo, and three major harmonies deepen its potential. Mars in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn, giving great power to our bold actions. Sweet Venus in affable Libra trines Jupiter, the planet of fortune, in friendly Aquarius. Our relationships, and our own inmost attitude, flow harmoniously, as does financial abundance. Helping us apply these harmonies to new directions of manifestation, Sun and Moon trine innovative Uranus in Taurus.
Today, Mercury enters pre-retrograde shadow, so the best results come in relation to intentions that we acted on previously. The productive potential of this audacious, intense and sweet New Moon is enough to merit deep reflection and directed action. Besides following the recommendations of our Daily Success Guide, you could book a personal consultation with an astrologer, channel or success coach in order to use this portal mindfully.
On Friday, September 10, Venus leaves the light breezes of Libra to enter the dark shadows of Scorpio, bringing emotional depth and intensity to our dealings. From now through early October, our radar will focus on closer relationships. There will be a preference for one-on-one connection, yet even in dealing with groups, we’ll prefer interchanges that offer opportunities for transformation. This is the time to …
