Let go, Libra. It's been one chaotic summer, and you need a break! Venus has been in your sign since August 7th, and you've been working so hard at being charming and attractive this past month. All of the attention you created has left you exhausted. On September 9th, a New Moon enters your 12th house; this is where we go to recharge, renew, and get inspired. So please, go to a wellness retreat, go hiking in the mountains, learn to surf, spend time alone. Seriously, turn inward and focus on internal self-care, Libra. Go hide out until September 21st, when the Sun moves into your sign. Meanwhile, Virgo's rule over your 12th house will help you take care of life's details—bills, health, household.

We'll keep that secret between us. Aim that arrow high, be proud of what you can accomplish this month. Nose to the grindstone until next month. You can do this!
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19)
Can you contain your excitement, Cap? You shouldn't! Mars, Saturn, and Pluto have all landed in your sign, signaling major forward motion. This month, it's time to accomplish what you've been working on since January. September is set to be the most productive month of your year. Add a new moon in Virgo and the possibilities for growth are endless. Virgo's entry into your 9th house, on September 9th, (think practical perfectionist, working almost as hard as you) shines the spotlight on expansion—in education, travel, worldview, and spirituality. So, Cap, it may be time to go back to school, take an online class, learn another language, or fly away for biz. You never do anything frivolously; it is always with a purpose. With seven planets in earth signs, all of your BFFs are harmoniously collaborating to broaden your world. This world is eager to see all that you will accomplish!
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18)
Sigh it out, Aquarius. Mars has been in your sign all summer long, misbehaving like a petulant child, but it's now exiting. Now you can turn your attention toward getting things done again! September 9th brings the best new moon of the year into Virgo to lend a helping hand. Virgo rules your 8th house, and she's all about the details—think, sex, investments, and money. Without Virgo, your finances would be a disaster, and you'd be celibate not by choice. Virgo's earthy nature is sexy, grounded, and practical. This month, get your finances organized, buy a cool stock, and romp in between the sheets. Bow down to Virgo in thanks, Aquarius.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20)
Put the pieces together, Pisces! Decision-making can be quite a challenge for you, especially now. On September 9th, the New Moon in Virgo falls in your 7th house of committed relationships, partnerships, and love. Are you in or out? It's confusing, but not your fault. The New Moon in Virgo is precisely opposing the planet Neptune, ruler of Pisces, and the energy in confounding. It's like watching a high-definition TV (with Virgo, everything is clear, precise, and real), in the house of the blurry planet of Neptune, (where everything is dreamy, confused, and intoxicating). The key to integrating these energies is to focus on your relationships with laser vision. That means set the priority, show up on time, take care of your partners, say what you mean, mean what you say, and help them organize their lives. Like a lot of relationships, Pisces and Virgo are paradoxical, each needing the other to thrive. When Virgo gets too uptight, Pisces comes to teach her to let go, dream, and get inspired by the universe. So, please, find and trust your balance this month, Pisces. Commit? Maybe?
