September is ushering in a mixed bag of planetary alignments and aspects that provide us with opportunities for growth and change. This month, Venus and Mars enter their detrimental signs, and the third and final Mercury retrograde of this year occurs this month. Here is what the stars have in store for you in your September 2021 astrological forecast, based on your rising sign.


Important Dates

September 6 — New moon in Virgo (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces)

September 10 — Venus enters Scorpio (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius)

September 14 — Mars enters Libra (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)

September 20 — Full moon in Pisces (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces)

September 20  — Vesta enters Scorpio (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius)

September 22 — Sun enters Libra/Fall Equinox (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)

September 26 — Mercury retrograde in Libra (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)



If you’re an Aries rising, the beginning of the month pushes you to focus on your routines and getting to know yourself better. The new moon provides you with a chance to try something new, like fixing your sleep schedule or drinking more water. It also pushes you to work on your communication with others, especially towards the end of the month. You have a support network, work with them, not against them.

Tarot Tidbit: For you, I pulled the Aries and Mars cards from my astrological oracle deck. The universe certainly has a sense of humor. This is highlighting the point suggested at the beginning of your horoscope, regarding trying something new and taking charge of your day-to-day life. I wouldn’t suggest manifesting a job unless you get an interview before or after the full moon. Rather, focus on empowering yourself and being mindful of your well-being.

For Taurus risings, this month is all about self-care and self-awareness. You may have been having a harder time than usual, and the new moon is a chance to lighten the load and do things simply to make yourself happy. This would be a perfect time to pick up a new hobby or start talking to love interests, if you’re so inclined. However, the latter part of the month will push you to focus on your responsibilities, and call upon you to find a sense of balance.

Tarot Tidbit: Your cards for this month are Cancer and the 10th House. At times, you have to step back to move forward, and the Cancer card is pushing you to nurture your inner child this month. What can you do to reparent yourself and contribute to your well-being?

This month, the matters of the home, your emotions, and your inner child are particularly important. Work on getting in touch with your emotions and facing the internal work, instead of ignoring it or trying to rationalize your feelings. The Mercury retrograde may push you into old hobbies or flings. Don’t entertain it, you’ll regret it when the retrograde passes.

Tarot Tidbit: The cards that came out for you were the Aquarius and Virgo cards. It seems that the full moon may bring up something important emotionally. If you take this opportunity, it will allow you to move forward and level up. Take time to recharge if necessary, processing your emotions can take a lot out of you.

If you’re a Cancer rising, the month of September holds some new beginnings in the way of communication, short-distance travel, and your living situation. Perhaps you’re getting more connected with your family, moving somewhere not too far from your last place, or both. Keep in mind that Mars and the Mercury retrograde will be active in the house of your home and private life, sparking tension between you and anyone you’re living with.

Tarot Tidbit: The cards that jumped out were Conjunction and 8th house. Right now, you may be feeling empowered by the fresh start and changes coming your way. You may even be looking forward to strengthening these bonds. Just be careful not to cross lines when you express your frustration, it might backfire.

If you’re a Leo rising, the past and following months are about self-discovery and developing a stronger sense of identity. Virgo season will continue this energy but instead will focus on your values, self-worth, and financial security. The Mercury retrograde can cause you some extra challenges in your communication, and you may get frustrated easily. This will be a time to pick and choose your battles.

Tarot Tidbit: Your cards for this month are the Semi-sextile and Gemini cards. There seems to be something you are holding back from. Part of it could be due to reasonable concern, but at a point, you need to let go of that and get out of your comfort zone. It feels like things in your life will improve once you get past this obstacle that’s currently in your path. Allow yourself to adapt.

This is your season if you’re a Virgo rising! This month is all about diving into yourself and finding what speaks to you. You do so much for everyone else, so allow yourself to be self-centered this month because you deserve it. Be careful with your money, especially towards the end of the month and through most of October. Mercury is your ruling planet, so you may find it to be more difficult than others would.

Tarot Tidbit: The cards that appeared for you are the 2nd House and Taurus cards. This is pointing towards the Mercury retrograde later this month. It would be wise to limit your spending and save if you have the means to, particularly because the retrograde may push you to spend more than you have. Those who have free funds should make sure they choose wisely.

If you’re a Libra rising, you may find yourself feeling slightly drained at the beginning of this month. The good news, Mars will be in your first house soon, giving you a much-needed energy boost. The Mercury retrograde will offer you an opportunity for some introspection, rather than a focus on the external things going on with you, but it’s up to you to take that opportunity when it presents itself.

Tarot Tidbit: Your cards for this month are 11th house and Libra. The Mercury retrograde may make you feel more inclined to keep to yourself and reflect on your identity. However, your support network exists for a reason. Don’t get so caught up in self-discovery that you neglect the people in your life. Balance is key.

Scorpio risings, this month will spotlight your relationships with your friends, as well as your network. If you have anything you’d like to manifest, do so during the new moon, that way you’re planting the seed for wish fulfillment. Towards the end of the month, you may find yourself feeling more drained and needing space. If you needed a sign to cancel some plans to focus on yourself, this is it.

Tarot Tidbit: The cards you received this month are Pluto and Saturn. This month may provide you with some time for powerful transformation and wisdom. Spending time alone can offer a lot of insight into your own consciousness, and time to discover why you work the way you do. Don’t shy away from this much-needed moment of truth.

Sagittarius risings have potential for growth in their careers this month. Mars will be in the house regarding your network, pushing you to be proactive in making these connections. The Mercury retrograde may prod you to make sure the people around you are truly in your corner.

Tarot Tidbit: The cards for you this month are Venus and Opposition. There is value in being true to yourself, but sometimes being too aggressively yourself doesn’t always work in your favor. Be careful to balance authenticity with practicality, so that you don’t accidentally burn bridges you need later.

If you’re a Capricorn rising, this could be a good time if you’re trying to learn something new. You may also be focused on personal growth, and learning more about the world around you. Later this month, Mars and the Mercury retrograde will go through the house dealing with your reputation, career, and online presence. Don’t start fights online just because you’re bored, especially with the Mercury retrograde, it could backfire if you don’t have a thoughtful argument.

Tarot Tidbit: The cards that came out for you are Square and Mercury. I would like to emphasize the point I made about picking and choosing your battles. Right now is not the time to be having thoughtless communication. Be careful with your words because not only will it affect you, but you may also have to deal with how it affects others.

If you’re an Aquarius rising, this month is full of planning for you. If you’re working on travel plans to far-away locations, your faith, or higher education, you will need to be more mindful of your time and make sure you’re planning responsibly. The full moon is in the house of self-worth, values, possessions, and finances, illuminating any issues that you may have with maintaining balance in this area of life.

Tarot Tidbit: The cards that appeared were the Sextile and Saturn cards. There are opportunities for long-term growth ahead, but you have to be willing to receive them. As a Saturn-ruled sign, you may either be slow to act out of fear of change, or eager to a fault. Developing discernment is the best way to balance these two extremes.

Pisces risings are encouraged to develop and strengthen their relationships, not only with others but also with themselves. The full moon will take place in the house dealing with you and your identity, as well as your outlook on life. The Mercury retrograde will push you to reevaluate your relationships and reevaluate what has gone unsaid that would be better if it were addressed.

Tarot Tidbit: The cards that popped out were the Pisces card and the Ascendant card. This month is all about relationships and intimacy, and communication is key to maintaining healthy ones. The Mercury retrograde is pushing you to be more communicative with your loved ones because you have to have open communication to work through your issues.
