Finally, we end the month with the beginning of Libra season, when all the energy that has been put towards clearing the path, centering our endeavors, and expanding your capacity can be put to good use. For you, Libra season is all about your relationships—especially the romantic connections you have made and want to support.
The last week of this month should be spent with loved ones—friends, family, partners, and dates. This is the time to grow your connections and share that love and attention you gave to yourself this month back to those you care for. September 23rd is a good time to take your partner on a special date, so make time to reconnect.
Single Aries will find this week very beneficial for their dating lives, while those in committed partnerships may find themselves making some big moves. If your partner has been able to support you through your career ambitions, creates positive space for you to grow, and holds you during the difficult hours, make sure to show your appreciation now.
The last week of this month sees a renewed attention to your valued connections. The 25th brings a challenge to your long-term career goals from your relationships—family, romantic, or otherwise. After spending the middle of the month focusing on your work and hammering out the details of a new opportunity, you’ll need to pay attention to some questions in your intimate partnerships. Make sure to listen to the concerns of those that you value—they have great insight and reflection for you now on how you conduct yourself when busy with other duties.
The hot when you’re here /cold when you’re busy dynamic may not be working, and you may need to find a balance between your duties and your commitments.
Pay special attention to what comes up on this day, as it will be the fuel for changes that need to be made with the New Moon in Libra on the 28th. Your focus will be on your daily patterns and how you balance romance and play with work demands. This is a practice run for 2020 – your work and its demands will only start to increase from here, so figuring out how to make it work now will be very beneficial later.
One of the first people who will be itching to give you some feedback on what needs to shift will be your romantic partner, collaborator, or beau, in or around September 22nd. They’ve got something to say, and while you may not want to hear it, it’s better that you do. You don’t have to make any changes now but be open to listening to the feedback and recognizing the part you play in this dynamic.
Have you had enough of September? She’s almost over now, as we round out the last week with the New Moon in Libra on September 28th, the time to set intentions for how you want to move forward with the relationship dynamic that came up on the 22nd. You’ll have had some time to think it through, and the best thing to do is strive for balance. Don’t make any concessions you can’t actually commit to but do make sure that the special person in your life feels loved and appreciated.
Intentions for this New Moon should be informed by the relationships you want to continue to grow, the recognition of how much energy is opened up for you when you lean into graciousness, and the true and honest reflection what you see in the mirror now. What are your faults that you’d like to work on? What creative capacity are you holding back for fear of being judged? Let your freak flag fly, in whatever way it shows up.
The last week of September marks the change in energy for you—after working your social connections, building up your job prospects, and taking a serious look at the relationships you are building, the Sun moving into Libra on the 23rdsignals your time to refresh the home space.
Even though you’ve been taking it easy since the 16th, your focus hasn’t necessarily been on nesting and creating that welcoming space you need right now. But now is the time set yourself up right babe. The dust settles, the focus shifts to your home environment, and its your time to make changes as you see fit.
If you have not found a good housing situation, need a new lease or housemate, or just want to do some redecoration, get to work the week of the 23rd. This is the week leading up to the New Moon in Libra on the 28th, so now is a good time to work on repairs and notice what bigger changes need to be made. There are certain projects that can be worked on in a day—deep cleaning the kitchen, for example. And there are certain things that may take quite a while longer to finesse—like finding a new home.
Deliberate on what the long-term projects are for your housing situation, and set the intention for change on September 28th, with the Libra New Moon. It’s your time to focus on what you need in order to feel grounded, secure, and supported. Make sure you’re getting that.
The last week of September will be much more chill compared to the whole month. The Sun moves into your third house of communication, meaning you’ll have much more to attend to close at home. Sometimes this transit means visits with the family, especially siblings—you could be flying over for a birthday party, or could expect some guests this week.
The New Moon on September 28th is in Libra, so you’ll be focusing on these close relationships for guidance. Perhaps the grief of loss and transformation has been hitting a bit too close to home lately, and you’d like to spend more time with friends and family in order to heal your heart.
Maybe there’s some issues at home with housemates or neighbors that you’d like to get resolved. Or, there’s some new form of practice you’d like to learn in order to help you feel more settled in your everyday routine. Sometime to center you during times of stress.
This New Moon will be the time to set some intentions for that work, and you should take into special account who you find to be a calming and grounding influence. What do they do that helps soothe you? What do you admire? Endeavor to learn it for yourself now.
You should also pay attention to how your friends and chosen family support or hinder your progress. You can either receive all the affirmation and accolades from supportive collaborators, or self-defeating critique and even dismissal from those who don’t think you can get it done. You know who I’d choose to listen to. Avoid the latter group, and choose to distance yourself now from influences that are not in your favor.
The last week of September brings the New Moon in Libra and a chance for you to set some boundaries and intentions that will help you grow more resources, and less self-doubt. As Virgo season closes and we move into Libra, how will you make good on all the promises you made to yourself about where your life is headed and what you want to achieve?
What are the first steps you need to take in order to make your vision a reality? And how can you center yourself in balance with your commitments to others?
Take these questions into account as you move forward. Birthday season is always a time of wishes, hopes, and dreams, but its up to you to make them a reality. This New Moon is a good time to start.
If you’re looking for a day to turn on the charm for a certain important conversation, look to scheduling it on or around September 22nd, when Mercury makes a sextile to Jupiter. You now have Mercury in your first house, which means this planet is working in your favor to do your bidding. The wonderful connection with Jupiter in your third house ensures that any conversation you need to have will go in your favor on this day—you may even meet someone who will have just the connections you need to get a new plan started.
With September 23rdand the last week of the month, we get the start of Libra season, and your time to really glow up into your own. By now you should have at least a good idea of what you would like to bring in for the new year—especially with home, grounding, and security. You can work on the planning stages now, and set an intention for the New Moon in September 28th.
This Moon is in your sign, in your first house, and there is a direct connection between Jupiter and Neptune for this lunation. Both of these benefics sit in your 3rdand 6thhouse respectively, making this one about your wellbeing in your immediate surroundings. If you don’t have a clear picture yet about what needs to change for you, you will know for sure on this New Moon.
Set your intention about what you’d like to see change so that you feel comfortable and secure in your surroundings. We are all reflections of the home environment we grew up in, and the environment we continue to accept in the present. How does your home reflect who you are, and what you’re capable of?
If you have found the environment you need in order to feel secure, then the weekend of September 21st-23rd could be very exciting. You could get a new job offer or opportunity or make a connection that will increase your revenue. You might even get news of a seed you planted long ago now finally bearing fruit.
Whatever the news is, be cautious in how you handle the opportunity. There is a square to Neptune around this time that tells me all may not be exactly as it seems. I would wait until September 26th, when Mercury squares your planetary ruler, Pluto, to get the exact details on what this new offer entails. You’ll be in a much better position to pick up on nuances of whatever is at play, and the decision you make now can be highly beneficial for your long-term plans. Choose wisely.
Finally, we close out the months with a New Moon in Libra over the weekend, which gives you a chance to appreciate how far you’ve come. Relationships can be hard for you Scorpio, because they reveal deep and intimate sides of you that you are very protective over. The last few years, however, have seen you leaning into this difficult aspect of your life and re-learn how to trust, who to trust, and when to trust.
You can no longer go it alone—in fact, you recognize now that you really do need other people—and you’ve done a lot of work to recognize who supports you, and who does not.
Take this Libra New Moon as an opportunity to set a new intention: to learn more about yourself through connection with others. Allow those in your life who have proven their worth and their loyalty to you to show you new ways to develop your being. You cannot go it alone during this time, and those who are on this journey with you are there for a reason. Stay curious. Explore why.
The last week of the month goes by much more smoothly and much more favorably after this date. With the start of Libra season and the situation at home cleared away, you can enjoy some time to connect. You might be throwing some parties now or organizing social gatherings. From a place of grounding and assurance, you can open yourself up to create safe and vibrant space for others.
September 26th will be a good day to start a collaboration with someone whose been on your radar for a minute, perhaps even a love interest! You’re either really feeling someone’s energy and drive, or you’ve realized that building a creative project with your date, beau, or friend would add a new dimension to your relationship that will be satisfying and engaging for both of you.
It’s the perfect time to get the ball rolling, just before the New Moon in Libra on September 28th. This one is, of course, about love and relationships. You’ve got it shining down on your 11thhouse this time, reflecting that you will do very well by building your network and recognizing just how much your value and resources are increased by your connections.
Set an intention for the kind of connections you want to make now. If you’re single and want to start a new relationship, or you’re working on creating better connections, this New Moon is your time to focus on what you want. Think more on energetic terms instead of specific ones.
“I want to feel supported and inspired” is much better than “they need to be available on the weekends and past their Saturn return.” Hard rules don’t end well, and people don’t usually follow them anyways. You will call in the connection that best suits your path, energetically. So why focus on the minutiae instead of the holistic picture?
The following day is the official start of Libra season, and you’ll want to be present and refreshed for this one. You work best with collaborators and groups of compas that have your back, and now will be the time to build up a new group of folks you want to build with.
You’ll get a really good idea of who should be considered your ally and whom you’re better off without on September 26th, when Mercury squares Pluto in your first. Only the best will do now, and you might have a tricky interaction with someone that will shed light on a pattern that’s been flying under the radar for a while.
Keep this moment in mind as we head into the New Moon in Libra on the 28th, your time to set an intention for what kind of connections you want to make in order to build the future you want to see now.
That tiff on the 26th was an indicator of a much larger pattern of accepting people who don’t really seem down for you because you appreciate their company. But honestly? Its 2019, and you can do better for yourself. This doesn’t mean you have to end any connections, but you should endeavor to communicate expectations for healthier relationships moving forward.
For this New Moon in Libra, ask yourself: who are my ride or dies? Do I stick by them because of loyalty, or because of true resonant connection? Can we create together? Can we dream together? Highlight those that do, and work on connections that don’t. If you think you’ve got a lot on your plate now, just wait till 2020. You’ll want to have this cleared up by then.
We enter the final week of September with a final chance for a trip. The Sun enters Libra on Monday, September 23rd so if you’re looking for an extended weekend, this is the time to take it. Take a trip out of town, go to the spa, or visit some friends.
The New Moon in Libra on the 28th is the time to set intentions for how you want to continue to develop your skill set. Now that you’ve let off some steam from all the relationship and commitment drama earlier this month, it’s your time to dedicate yourself to you.
In order to continue developing yourself and your career, you have to keep growing and knowing. Do you want to go take a workshop on a new skill you want to incorporate into your work? Is there a teacher you want to contact about a new method of conducting business? Is a class you’re taking inspiring you to make a career move? Make an intention on this New Moon to let your inspiration guide your journey.
With the Sun moving into your 8thhouse on Monday, September 23rd, you might meet someone who will help you understand this insight and could be very helpful to your personal growth. This transit isn’t meant to scare you or bring up issues you’re not ready for, it’s more about turning the things you have most feared into sources of power. Someone will show up on this day or a few days after to help you with this process.
Opening yourself up to new energy and motivation and allowing a chosen few to witness you in this moment, the New Moon on the 28th will be a chance for you to center your internal transformation. As you have worked on letting go of people and connections in your life that were superficial or fake, you now work on letting go the resentment and anger attached to those connections.
With this New Moon in Libra, commit to letting go of the anger and hurt you feel over relationships that have not worked out. They are not a failure of your worth nor of your capabilities. Simply connections that once served a purpose and have now fulfilled their part in your story. Rise once again, clear of old patterns, and ready for new and greater intimacy with those you have chosen to share this journey with you.
