Your ruling planet Mars is now in Gemini, one of the air signs. Mars is going to remain here for an unusually long time, until March 2023. This is important for your finances and you may be working towards a long-term financial goal.
Alternatively, you could be diving deep into life’s mysteries and the realm of the psyche. Gemini is Scorpio’s 8th house which is linked to your star sign in the zodiac wheel – all things hidden & taboo, exploring beyond the veil.
Mars is in helpful mood this month and teams up with big planet Jupiter on the 1st and sensible Saturn on the 28th.
If you want to improve your finances, look for a new role or job as the month begins. Then, work at sharing resources with family or using your home to make money as the month comes to a close.
Community & Connections
The Sun is moving through earth sign Virgo up until the 23rd and is joined by the planet of relating Venus from the 5th to the 29th. Virgo rules your friends and group activities, your social, political, environmental & humanitarian alliances. It’s about your community and how you fit in the world.
When earth signs dominate, this is about people and connections. If you’re a typical Scorpio, you tend to favour your own company but September’s calling you out into the world.
If you want to improve your social life, the first two weeks of September are the time to launch yourself into new activities. There’s a flurry of planetary activity in Virgo, urging you to reach out, connect and recharge your friendships. It’s a top month to get involved in your local neighbourhood and find a way to help others and make a difference to people’s lives.
Your co-ruler Pluto is also in an earth sign Capricorn and this is about communication and finding your voice. You may be writing more than usual as Virgo is the star sign linked to writing, ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication. You may not want to be overly social. Instead, you’re seeking to find a way to connect online or share your thoughts in a different context.
It could be an exceptionally busy month when you’re juggling numerous connections, networks, ideas and projects. If you’re a typical Scorpio, you like in to go in deep, analysing your motives and other people’s motives on a deep level.
Some of the connections you make this month could be powerful, for you or for them. This might be a relationship with a coach, therapist or influencer. Or, perhaps you’re the one who’s stepping up your game. The connections you make this month could be long-lasting. Earth signs are in it for the long run and don’t give up easily.
Love & Romance
This month’s Full Moon falls in romance Pisces on the 10th. On its own, this promises romance for you. Alternatively, an opportunity to release and let go of emotions that no longer serve you. Yet, you’re going to have to be savvy to distinguish between reality and fantasy or reality and illusion.
Take care that you’re not seduced or fooled during the Full Moon period. Also, on the 16th and 24th. Instead, dive into other-worldly realms that inspire you, find an escape route from the everyday that heals and uplifts you. This may be a spiritual path or seeking beauty in the world.
Romance isn’t out of the question but it’s not a straightforward time for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the lovers of the heavens Venus and Mars clash on the 16th. This is date when love and money or love and friendship could be out of whack.
Plus, talk planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 10th, the same day as the Full Moon. Mercury in retreat often flags up a theme of untruths or things being hidden from you. As Mercury switches direction in Libra and the sign of relating, you’re wise to take your time if a new relationship begins.
Get to know someone on a deeper level or get back in touch with someone from your past. However, wait until October 2nd or even October 10th before making up your mind about love or a close relationship.
Rest & Repose
Libra is the most hidden sector of your horoscope. Traditionally when planets are in Libra, this brings with it a chance to restore balance and harmony in your life. It may be different this time around, however, with Mercury on go slow.
Mercury changes direction opposite big planet Jupiter – exact dates are the 3rd & 18th – and this combination could feel overwhelming. Or, perhaps you’re overthinking things. Especially where work and health are concerned, you’re wise to take one step at a time.
The Sun moves into Libra on the 23rd the day of the Equinox heralding a change in season. Two days later, there’s a New Moon in Libra on the 25th, a symbol of new beginnings. Focus on inner work during this New Moon.
Seek a more peaceful way of life during Libra season, whether this means rest and retreat or prioritising close and intimate relationships. If you’re a typical Scorpio, you often enjoy your one-to-one’s more than big social gatherings.
Look after yourself well in mind, body & spirit. Seek balance and harmony within you and slow down the pace. When planets are in Libra, this is an ideal time of preparation, doing whatever’s necessary to get ready for Scorpio season next month.
