September Horoscope for Virgo

(August 23rd – September 22nd)


Your fears and insecurities are the challenge this month; they’re preventing you from accepting your well-deserved reward. The battle is between high ideals and the practical side of life. It’s a time for compromise. There lies the source of your power.  


Virgos have the reputation of being hard to please, but they get away with it because they’re sexy, complex and impossible to ignore. The Virgo gift is a combination of curiosity and faith: they love taking things apart and have the confidence that they’ll put it back together. The process gives them understanding – they now know how things work. Surface information is no longer enough; the hidden side of life – the shadow -- has the attraction. It doesn’t take a Virgo long to realize this is where power and opportunity lie.

All the signs and planets are within each of us; it’s their position and relationship to each other that alters their personality. You have all the colors on your pallet, but how you use them and what you choose to paint makes you who you are. Your unique way of interweaving the energy is what creates your footprint in the sand. How complex is your tapestry? How do you knit together innocence and sexiness, goodness with evil, kindness and cruelty? Whatever you decide becomes your mask. It’s no longer just about strength like Leo; that creates too much opposition. The Virgo mask is one of mystery. No one knows exactly who you are. Now nothing is limiting your possibilities except you.

Your love affair with the unknown is triggered with the Full Moon on September 6th. It happens in your 1st and 7th houses, you vs. relationships. You are in doubt about how someone feels about you. When you lose confidence, you lose strength. With Neptune conjunct the Moon in the 7th it’s not really about you, they don’t know themselves or what they want. What you need now is patience, even when the answer you get is not the whole truth. Some times it’s not about making a decision, it’s about understanding the problem. You’ve always been great at fixing what doesn’t work, you fearlessly enter chaos and organize it, but you can’t fix another person’s feelings -- they have to work that out themselves. Saturn does not make this easy. In your 4th house of home, it’s squaring the Sun and the Moon Neptune conjunction. No one escapes its critical voice. Just don’t take the bait. Engaging with Saturn is never a good idea. Step back and allow things to unfold on their own. If you don’t feed the dragon, it gets tired of spitting fire.

Love this month is difficult unless you’re in a relationship. If you’re committed, then whatever has been hidden and not discussed may arise to be dealt with at this time. Learn that avoiding something only makes it worse, face things when they arise and you clear the arena and you keep yourself free of worry. Venus, the planet of love and romance is in Leo, but somewhat isolated, so everyone feels more on their own and that’s not a bad thing. It’s essential to have a good relationship with yourself, in order to have a great relationship with someone else. Others don’t fix us. That’s our job. If you’re not in a relationship and want one, love can happen -- but from a distance. Instead of being frustrated, enjoy the dream. It’s where everything begins anyway – in our imagination.

Gemini rules your 10th house of career and goals, which means you prefer to freelance or work more than one job. If that’s not true, the job you have demands a lot of different skills. You’re a communicator, someone who knows how to put people, products or information together. Whatever you’ve chosen to pursue needs to keep you busy with details. With Mercury journeying through your 12th house of the unconscious, you feel less in control right now. However, the trine from Uranus will bring you work if you’re out of it, or it can keep you busy with some new and exciting projects if you’re employed.

The Sun is the center of the universe and this month it has a wonderful trine to Pluto – the planet of power and transformation. Pluto will take you deeper into new areas and help you hone your skills and your expertise. You love uncovering different aspects of a project and finding a detail someone else missed. In this way September will be rewarding. Just watch your need for control. Pluto loves to give orders and you don’t want to alienate your colleagues because you feel super empowered.

The 8th house of sex and transformation are center stage due to Pluto and Uranus.  Uranus makes a trine to Mercury and Mars—the planets of communication and action. So you are either in for some exciting sex, or new ideas that transform your life – or both -- you really don’t have to choose. Uranus is also making an opposition to Jupiter in your 2nd house of money. You may get insight into your finances and learn how to improve them. Some brainy person on the subject will offer you advice. Uranus brings us information in the most unusual ways. Get ready for a series of “aha” moments -- they’re powerful. And if you’ve been feeling the need to be more independent, you’re right on target. Independence helps you use power with confidence. Once you can feel comfortable doing it all yourself, then you can ask for help.

The New Moon on the 20th is in square to Saturn. To create any new ideas you will have to go against the establishment. It’s one way the universe helps strengthen your convictions and keep you focused on your path. If you can defend your ideas, then you’re ready to make them work and pull others in to support whatever you are doing. The trine from Uranus to Saturn is there to help you embrace change and create something new. 

All in all this month will make you aware of just how much power you have when you believe in yourself. You’re the key to the puzzle and the prize, the source of all information. Within your faith is the magic wand. If you can focus on your beliefs and perfect them as you go you’ll find that they help you get attention and the job done well.
