If you’ve ever felt like September is a great month for you, it’s probably because it’s written in the stars. Okay, the return of Grey’s Anatomy and pumpkin spice lattes may have a little something to do with it too, but September’s magic also comes from the stars. What I mean by that is, it's a good month for almost all zodiac signs.
In this particular year, September started with Mercury in retrograde (yuck). We all know Mercury in retrograde can mean miscommunications and some overall low feelings. Luckily, Mercury in retrograde ended on September 5th, meaning you’ve started to feel the effects of Mercury in retrograde lift in the beginning of the month.
September starts as Virgo season, meaning there’s much emphasis on work and career. Making strides in your workplace should come easy this month. September transitions into Libra season by the end of the month, putting the emphasis on beauty and relationships. The Libra is also known as the sign of diplomacy and balance. That said, if you feel like a workaholic in the beginning of the month, the end of the month should bring a better work/life balance to your life.
Below we have all your specific horoscopes for September 2017. May this be your best September yet, ladies.
24 Virgo: Don't Let Mercury Slow You Down
As September kicks off, it’s still very much Virgo season, so happy birthday! Try to put your work down for once and go celebrate with friends, Virgo. Though, you may not be feeling like your normal self, as your planetary ruler – Mercury – is in retrograde. Damn you, Mercury in retrograde. This may drain you of energy and even make you feel insecure.
If you are stuck trying to shake these feelings, be mindful of the new moon on September 20th, which brings a clean slate to your life. If you’re still stuck in the rut of feeling sluggish and insecure, indulge in some self-care around the 20th. Whether it’s reading a book, taking a yoga class, or doing a face mask, do something indulgent that will help you reset and end the month on a positive note.
23 Virgo Love Horoscope: Get Ready For Mars
While you may be in a funk from Mercury in retrograde, that doesn’t stop you from thriving in your romances. Every two years, Mars passes through Virgo. Mars is aggressive. The planet symbolizes fiery ambition and fiery sexuality. When Mars enters Virgo on September 5th, you may feel a blast of heat. So go get ‘em, girl! If you’re in a relationship, use the time to keep things spicy. If you’re single, use this time to make some new connections. Mars will be sticking around until October 22nd, then he’s gone for another two years, so take advantage of this energy.
Once the new moon hits your sign on September 20th, paired with Mars, you’ll be feeling better, hotter and more ambitious than ever.
22 Libra: It's A, Uh, Confusing Month
Libra, get ready for Libra season! At the end of the month, Libra season kicks off, so happy birthday!
Before Libra season though, it’s still Virgo season. Virgo season can make you feel a little bit off. You’re generally a very friendly and social sign, but during Virgo season, you may crave alone time. Don’t fight this need for alone time. Instead, embrace it during Virgo season in the beginning of the month. Take this time to connect to yourself before your birthday celebrations begin.
By the end of the month, you may feel a slight confusion, as your planetary ruler – Venus – opposes Neptune. This can make you feel… just confused, quite frankly. Do you want those leather bootie, that pumpkin spice latte, that new job? You don’t know! If you feel confused, hold off on major decisions until October.
21 Libra Love Horoscope: You'll Be Flirty, Then Not So Flirty
We all know that Mercury in retrograde means some loopy things in communications. However, your love life keeps it light and fun. Until the 19th, you should feel playful and flirty. If you’re in a relationship, take this time to reconnect with your guy, since we can all sometimes forget to keep things fun and flirty when we’re in a committed relationship. If you’re single, get out there. Harness that playful, flirty energy and meet some new people. Hey, you never know how things could end up!
You should especially enjoy this fun energy, since the 19th will see you zapped of such energy until October 14th. You’ll suddenly be more introverted and not interested in connecting with your partner. Take this time to connect with yourself, so when October 14th rolls around you’ll be a better person.
20 Scorpio: You'll Feel All The Feels
Scorpio, September may start with you feel antsy. You are motivated for change in some aspect of your life – be in health, career, or your living space. Whatever it may be, don’t make a change too quickly. Mercury is in retrograde until September 5th, which means miscommunication may occur. It’s an especially bad time to sign contracts of any kind. If you’re looking to sign a new lease, a gym membership, or take a new jobs, it’s best to wait until after September 5th because of that sneaky Mercury.
On the 6th, a full moon is in Pisces, which is also a water sign. This will make you feel creative, romantic, and emotional. Yes, Scorpios are secretive by nature, but this illumination on your gentler aspects may prove to be a good time to open up.
With this illumination on your emotions, Libra season will be a great time for you to get more introspective. During the end of the month, try mediation, a dream journal, or anything that’s a bit more introspective.
19 Scorpio Love Horoscope: Your Gut Knows What's Up
Scorpio, you’re a sign that is generally rich in romance, and that is especially the case this month. You’ll also feel very connected to your instincts this month. If you’re in a relationship, listen to those instincts. If it’s been rocky lately, you’ll likely know if the relationship is worth saving this month. If it hasn’t been rocky, you’ll feel a magnetic pull towards that partner. If you’re single, these instincts will come in handy with meeting new people. You’ll be able to tell right off the bat if someone if worth getting to know or not.
While you should always trust your gut, you should especially trust your gut this month, Scorpio.
18 Sagittarius: Something Big Is Coming

Mercury in retrograde ends on September 5th, which thank god! On September 5th, Mars also enters Virgo, which will bring a rush of work related energy to you. Suddenly, you’ll feel like you can accomplish anything and you’ll have very high ambitions for yourself. Embrace this energy to push yourself towards work goals.
On September 20th, the Virgo will experience a new moon, which will – again – push you in your career. Because new moons represent a restart, this is a good time to start a new project or start a job search. The end of the month will bring a final decision on something long-coming. Whether it’s a ending a relationship, starting a new job, or getting a new apartment, look forward to a new beginning or being freed of something that was holding you back.
17 Sagittarius Love Horoscope: It's Time For Decisions
Don’t worry, Sagittarius, it’s not ALL work in September. On September 6th, a full moon is in Pisces, which will bring your home, family, and relationships to the forefront. Full moons are a time to let go of the past, whether it be wounds or grudges. Take this time to let go of something emotionally holding you back in one of your relationships, be it friendly or romantic.
The middle of the month will bring fun, playful energy to your romances, so try something kinky and new. If you’ve been in-between in a relationship – either trying to decide to end something or officially begin something – the end of the month could see the final decision.

Whatever it may be, it will result in a special moment in your relationship, be it a nice night out, a special gift, or a big purchase together. It’ll symbolize a big moment in the relationship. If you are single, this fortune could come in the form of a new bae who is into wining and dining you, in which case, YAAASS.
Later in the month, the 25th will be a difficult day for communications. Avoid having any big, important relationship conversations that day.
14 Aquarius: It's Time For The Past And The Future
Unlike many of the other signs, your month starts off with a bang. Yes, Mercury is in retrograde, so that sucks. But also, Mars makes a connection with Uranus – your planetary rulers – which brings about a fearless ambition.

Aquarius, like I said, it’s time to think about your future emotional security. That said, try not to let this worry eat you up. Worrying about your future emotional security may make you push a relationship forward too quickly, which can backfire. Yes, you may want to advance the relationship, but don’t do it before it’s time. You especially want to avoid difficult conversation on the 25th, when all the signs will find communication difficult.
