Today is a great day to try a new food, hobby, sport, or adventure that you have always been just a little to scared to try before. Your fears are starting to vanish and your courage is growing, in part because your mind is hungry for new stimulation—even if that stimulation is based on fear! You will be totally fiery and full of energy, so put it to good use by pushing the envelope and pushing past one or two of the boundaries you've built for yourself.
VirgoAug 23 – Sep 22
You’ll be extra empowered to go after professional opportunities that reflect your values and dreams while the self-image-oriented sun moves through your second house of income from September 22 to October 22. Putting yourself out there in a diplomatic but assertive way during this period could lead to concrete financial rewards.
Then, you’ll be connecting and making plans with friends, loved ones, colleagues, and higher-ups left and right after September 27 while your ruling planet, messenger Mercury, moves through your third house of communication until its retrograde begins there on October 13. All this cerebral energy might actually be a bit overwhelming for you, so be sure to take time-outs to prioritize your self-care, which could look as simple as a five-minute stretching session or pre-bedtime meditation app routine.
Your ruler Mercury is in your sign to start the month but quickly moves into beauty-loving Libra on September 5. You still value practicality and common sense, but things like manners and appearances are important to you now as well. You expect others to be on time and to say thank you and excuse me whenever it’s appropriate.
There’s a new moon in your critical sign on the seventeenth, so there’s very little you won’t notice. Do you have to comment about every little thing you see that’s wrong? No, not necessarily, but how will improvements be made if you don’t offer constructive criticism? Your hope for the future is based on people listening to your opinions and ideas about how to make things better.
The sun enters Libra as the fall equinox brings an equal balance of daylight and nighttime hours on September 22, which is very fitting given Libra’s quest for equilibrium. As a new season begins, this is your chance to start fresh in many areas of your life. As a goal, work on the delicate balance between work and home life.
You get quieter and more contemplative as Mercury pairs up with secretive Scorpio on the twenty-seventh, but resist the urge to overthink things. Jealousy and suspicion can run rampant now if you don’t let the other person tell their side of the story.
