Here’s a column I wrote for a newspaper that didn’t make the cut. Decided to put it here.
Aries (MAR 21-APR 20): It’s a good time for you to get things done, as competitive Mars will remain in Virgo until October. The increased drive can lead to quick anger in Aries, so be mindful of how you express your feelings this month. Aggression is ill-advised, and it would be wise to stay out of arguments.
Taurus (APR 21-MAY 21): Not the best month for any romantic relationships — Virgo season puts a stop to that. However, your cousin Libra will soon accept your shared ruling planet, Venus; expect ease in professional and personal relationships mid-month. Remain confident in your identity. You are strong.
Gemini (MAY 22-JUN 22): Gemini, your intellectual side will come up several times this month. With brilliant and communicative Mercury in Virgo, you may notice that it’s easier to speak about your ideas. It’s time to seek the answers you need, and if you can’t find them, ask for help. Guidance will be given.
Cancer (JUN 23-JUL 23): Cancer’s energy should feel a boost around September, as the Moon is going to pass through Virgo, the sign of health and nurturing. Be wary of your aggressive tendencies toward emotions; allow yourself to spend some time committing to self-care. You’re worth it.
Leo (JUL 24-AUG 23): It’s normal after a sign has passed through their seasons to feel drained, especially after Leo’s boldness and flamboyance was so prominently highlighted in August. Some introvert time may be necessary, but the Sun still rules until September 23rd, the Equinox. Don’t let your light dim too much.
Virgo (AUG 24-SEP 23): It’s your time to shine! Your service-oriented heart and analytical brain are in full swing, so use this to your advantage. You’ll be able to help more people and be more organized this month, but don’t forget to acknowledge that you need to serve yourself as well. You deserve love.
Libra (SEP 24-OCT 23): The beginning of September may be difficult, as Venus doesn’t like to be in Virgo. However, charming Venus and amusing Mercury both enter Libra on September 14th to ease Libra’s struggling relationships. The Sun enters Libra on the Equinox for a balanced, peaceful end to the month.
Scorpio (OCT 24-NOV 22): One word comes to the surface this September: introspection. You may find yourself “in the feels,” contemplating your ambitions, passions, and new beginnings. The depth of Pluto can offer a sort of mental clarity you may have been seeking over the summer. Spend time in thought.
Sagittarius (NOV 23-DEC 21): It’s a month of optimism for Sagittarians, kicking off with Jupiter in Sagittarius squaring Venus in Virgo. All signs point to “yes,” and you’re on a roller coaster that only goes up. Dive into new friendships, schools of thought, or places to visit. The outcome might just surprise you.
Capricorn (DEC 22-JAN 20): The beginning of this month puts a damper on the emotional side of Capricorn, but don’t stress, as your knack for hard work will come to light by the second week. Motivating Saturn goes direct in Capricorn on the 18th, allowing you to reflect on the previous April retrograde.
Aquarius (JAN 21-FEB 19): Aquarius is rather quiet during this upcoming month. You may want to spend some time with the people you trust. October can bring up some unexpected anxieties, so start to prepare for the ahead stressors. We can often store up our energy for when it is needed most. You’ve got this.
Pisces (FEB 20-MAR 20): For much of this month, you might have trouble remembering who you are. Creativity can run wild, but a sense of self can disappear. Use that boost to remember your true nature and take care of yourself. It’s okay if your outer protections falter or even change. Treat yourself gently.
