Your September Horoscope: It is the Most Productive Month of the Year.

The Standard Spa, Miami Beach’s in-house astrologer, Lori Bell, did you a solid and laid out your month ahead. Thank her in person when you see her around the property and book an appointment to go deeper into your astrological chart (if you're not in Miami, she does readings via phone, too!). This month's biggest takeaways: September is the most productive month of the year. Get back to work—it will feel so good.
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19)

Summer is so last season, Aries! It's fall, which means it's time to get back to work full speed whether the leaves are dropping or not. The month begins with a line-up of planets in Virgo activating your 6th house of health, career, and the daily grind. The New Moon in Virgo is the most productive and creative New Moon of the year. There are 8 planets in Earth signs with Virgo. Can you feel the support?! You should. Earth signs are grounded, practical, and realistic. Aries, you're never one to sit still, which could be why you may not feel that support. Stop for a minute and feel it. September is the perfect month to channel all of that ADD energy into action. Add the power of your avatar, Mars, and you could accomplish more in September than in all of 2019. So. Much. Winning. Mars only comes around a house every 2 years so don't blow this prime time to reorganize yourself and your life. With Virgo ruling your 6th house, you instinctively know how to take care of yourself. Listen to your astrologer taking a page out of the Nike playbook: "No excuses, just do it." Hit the gym—your body will thank you for the endorphins. Eat healthy and in moderation. Your emotional well-being is directly tied to your gut! Book your annual check-ups. Please put that health insurance to good use now—we have no idea what the future holds, but don't dwell on that. When it comes to work, you can be very "Virgo," hyper-focused on details and perfectionism. In September, this actually pays off. You have a green light from the universe to translate your professional goals into reality. You're also in a great position to take advantage of Aries' natural leadership qualities. Think G7 summit, but with everyone getting along and showing up to the table. Do not be a pain-in-the-ass critic to your co-workers. Instead, find solutions to improve, refine and restructure the workplace. Express the higher Virgo qualities—you'll achieve so much more this way. And you'll be spreading positive karma. Your energy will be soaring high, just don't plow through the to-do's. Take things slowly, breathe, and think about what you want to accomplish during this inspired month. On September 14th, Venus, the planet of love, enters Libra, your 7th house of partnerships. Single Aries, get out there. Force the friend with benefits to take you on a real date, outside of the house and with different benefits. Committed Aries, recommit. Try new things and new positions together. Libra will also help bring balance to your relationships. Work hard on renewal, Aries, and you're gonna fall in love with September!

Taurus (Apr 20-May 20)

Taurus, September is gonna be a starry, starry month. The month begins with a New Moon in Virgo, your BFF. Virgo also plays host to planets Mercury, Venus, and Mars. This celestial party sets up September as one of the most creative and productive New Moons of the year. It’s loaded with stabilizing earth energy, a dream come true for you, terrestrial Taurus. Your 5th house is illuminating all that brings you joy—creativity, love affairs, self-expression, kids. You're welcome! Tap into this incredible Virgo energy and make things happen. Seriously, how productive can you be? Jump on Amazon and self-publish that book inside of you. Take those awesome photos off of your phone and find a local exhibit space. Start that new do-good biz venture that keeps pulling your attention. Virgo is lending you the discipline to finally bring a creative project to life. Virgo also rules your 5th house. So, whatever the pursuit, remember that you function best when everything has order. Organize your desk, artist studio, or work space. Renovate your kids' rooms. Find ways to help out your lover. If you don't have a lover, there's always a neighbor. I'll be your neighbor. Just make sure your creative appetite is being fed this month, Taurus! You'll be so happy in September, the rest of us may be annoyed. But keep smiling and maybe you can spread some of your happiness and generate greater universal calm. We could all use it as fires rage both literally and figuratively. On September 14th, Venus, your love goddess ruler, moves into Libra and your 6th house of self-care and work. Taurus, you love to luxuriate and know how to do it well. Indulge this month. Spend the day at a spa, get a facial, consult the wellness coach, sweat it out in the hammam after an Ayurvedic scalp massage. If you can't get there in person, turn your home into spa. Soak in the tub with aromatic oils by candlelight as you sip wine and listen to music. I just relaxed writing that. Do whatever you need to soothe your soul. This will help keep things harmonious on the work front. Venus' energy of beauty will also make work and interaction with co-workers pleasant this month. It feels so good to be a Taurus. We can't wait to see what you'll create in September. Get to it!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Gemini, you may look like a hikikomori hermit and not want to leave your house this month, but your hermitage doesn't mean you should be a hoarder. September kicks off with a New Moon in Virgo, which also hosts planets Mercury, Venus, and Mars. This Virgo star party is happening in your 4th house of home and hearth. Virgo's orderly energy keeps things from becoming a hot mess. She insists that you practically tend to the details of home and family in September. Forget spring cleaning, this is more like fall throw-away. Marie Kondo says to get rid of all the things that do not "spark joy" so, dare I ask, could you end up single and happy? Seriously, buy boxes, take inventory, pack up the car and head over to Goodwill. Think of all the people you'll be helping by helping yourself get organized. It's a win-win! This is the time to refine, repair and improve your home. I'm taking HGTV level of attention! Invite your loved ones for dinner as you reno the house. You'll be heeding the highest expression of Virgo qualities for care and service to others. Promise them fine wine or an extra edible. And, if you're lucky, they may even lend a hand to house projects. The Full Moon in Pisces on September 14th activates your 10th house of career. This is the year to dream; take a risk, as anything is possible in your professional life. What’s your current vision? I know you probably have so many, Gem. But you have to choose one and stick with it! Put yourself out there; network, ramp up the self-promotion. Follow the example of successful leaders who do it with class and humility. Make Virgo proud. This Full Moon inspires your ambitions for the remainder of the year. Earn that recognition you want and deserve. Whatever you do professionally, please keep your home life front and center. Spark joy! It will ground you so that you can fly high in September, Gemini!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Pay attention, Cancer! You can accomplish anything you set your mind to this month. September is gearing up to be the most productive and creative month of the year. It’s the perfect antidote to your naturally, over-analytical brain. The New Moon appears in Virgo, with Mercury, Venus, and Mars in tow. Virgo is dominated by these earth signs, pushing you to make things happen. I mean actually following through with action, rather than starting and stopping a million projects. The planetary line-up activates your 3rd house of thinking, communication, attitude and siblings. You know the key to happiness is a positive mindset; studies have proven optimists live longer than pessimists. So, fill up your glass with any libation of your choice, and get to at least half full, pronto! This may prove tricky for you, Cancer, because we know you can be moody with emotions that shift hourly. It is critical for you to take a pause. Think before you speak, get centered in a kundalini class, start a meditation practice, and be grateful every single day. As one of the most compassionate signs of the zodiac, tap into and share your kindness. It’s genuine and so needed these days. Virgo energy is all about improving, refining, and analyzing your outer world. Instead of ruminating about your inner thoughts, imagine ways to be of service. How can you help your siblings, neighbors, and co-workers? This is also the time to push productivity to the max. Take a class, teach a class, join a political campaign, and get involved with your community. You’ll be so excited to see the fruits of your labors. On September 14th, the Full Moon in Pisces lands in your 9th house of learning, traveling, and spirituality. Hit the road while expanding your worldview. This September change your attitude, change your life, Cancer!

Leo (July 23-Aug 22)

Leo, I know you love basking in the sun, but summer’s over and you most get back to work. It’s Virgo season, the most productive time of the year. The month begins with the yearly New Moon in Virgo, activating your 2nd house of cash, self-worth, and talents. This New Moon is conjunct Venus, Mars, and Mercury; so think creativity on steroids. Venus and Mars are pure artistic energy; and strong-armed Mercury transforms this potent energy into something real. What hidden talents need to emerge Leo? Think creatively and you’ll likely be able to make money or find fame. Are you a secret America’s Got Talent star? Up and coming political leader? Online app guru just waiting to hit it big? Virgo energy will help you figure it out and with discipline, make those talents work for you! Well, then it’s, always about you, isn’t it, Leo? With the spotlight on cash and worth, this is no time to be a shy lion. At work, ask for that raise; increase your fees; come up with a new payment structure or business strategy. You know you’re worth it; be prideful! There is a massive line-up of planets in earth signs this month, giving you the energy to stay grounded, practical, and sensible in negotiations. The Full Moon on September 14th activates your 8th houses of sex and intimacy. Sensual stuff, Leo spread the love—inside and outside of the bedroom. Please share that generous spirt with your lover, family, friends, and the rest of us who need a shot of happiness. Live large and live it up this September, Leo!

Virgo (Aug 23-Sep 22)

Happy birthday, Virgo! The universe is doing some serious partying and showering of gifts in your honor. The month begins with your New Moon in Virgo. Read very clearly: This is NO ordinary New Moon. There are a whopping eight planets, your BFFs, in Earth signs, along with Mercury, Venus, and Mars holding celestial court in Virgo. These planets align in your sign and create a Virgo love-fest. Think the spirit of Woodstock (which just celebrated a birthday too!) mashed up with the unabashed self-love of Lizzo. All of this Earth energy wants to get things done. You can accomplish so much this September, you'll feel like the Energizer Bunny! One of your many talents is a knack for finding solutions to any issue without creating undo drama. No RuPauls welcome here! When Venus and Mars are aligned, the creative energy feels boundless. Add the ambitious planet Mars, who makes his 2-year debut in your 1st house, and you'll be bursting with extra energy and drive. There is no hiding out this month, dear Virgo. I know you can be shy, but this is the time to take center stage. It's your birthday, after all. Deep down, you know you want the attention, and guess what? This time, you'll receive it. Bask in it. Don't be surprised when you get extra glances during the morning coffee stop, workout, or subway commute home. Virgo, nix the self-critical, fussbudget side of your personality. Aim instead to project the deeper, Virgo soul, the one who refines and elevates all you encounter. As the zodiac's alchemist, you transform chaos into order. Our world is pretty chaotic, don't you think? Please help us get our lives together. You can start with me; I'm kind of a hot mess right now. On September 14th, the Full Moon in Pisces lands in your house of committed relationships. Bring on the gifts of love! Single Virgos, you already know that you'll be noticed this month. So, get out there and create opportunities. Socialize and be receptive to a new romance. Those committed, let your partners take care of you for a change. Virgo, open your heart to these lovely gifts. You're welcome and have a great next trip around the sun! 

Libra (Sep 23-Oct 22)

Let go, Libra. It's been one chaotic summer and you need a break! September is all about renewal. The universe is giving you a reprieve to recharge and get inspired. The month kicks off with the New Moon in Virgo, along with several planets gathering in grounded Earth signs. This New Moon activates your 12th house of solitude, reflection, and inner peace. It is where your hidden strengths dwell. Libra, now's the time to book a wellness retreat, go hiking in the mountains, learn to surf, take a solo vacation. The point is to bask happily in your own company this month. You've got Virgo ruling this area of your life; she wants you to turn inward and focus on self-care. This may feel totally counter to your inclinations as a social butterfly, but Virgo knows best and she says you need this downtime! To ensure you act on this important message, Mercury, Venus, and Mars are all aligning with Virgo. You can't really disobey the planets or me, your astrologer. Seriously, find activities that encourage you to get quiet and go within, whether that means yoga, meditation, getting out in nature, or just chilling with the help of some edibles and your cuddly pooch. There's no need to over-worry, Libra. Just refine and try not to get caught up in all the analytical details. On September 14th, the energy shifts and you can come out of hiding. Your ruler, Goddess Venus, enters Libra in your 1st house of self. It's back to being seen! Now turn attention back to the external world. Go shopping, host a dinner party, attend community events or political fundraisers. You'll be feeling especially social and ready to mingle after your forced hibernation. If you get it right, Libra, September balances everything out and replenishes you for the new season!

Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21)

Scorpio, grab that martini, eat that edible, or just breathe deeply and start networking. You're intense and all that small talk can be pure torture for you, but this month is all about connecting, networking and engaging. So, remember the breathe deeply part! In through the nose, out through the mouth. September starts with the yearly New Moon in Virgo, highlighting your 11th house of friends, tribe, and like-minded peeps. If you wish to inspire, connect, and make new meaningful connections this is the ideal time. There is a lineup of planets in Virgo, with Mercury, Venus, and Mars, all joining the 11th house party. How to make this a meaningful and magical month? Find your passion and have some fun. Scorpio, you're never on the fence about anything, it's all or nothing with you. Virgo governs your 11th house and you're attracted to people who have their acts together—or at least pretend to; but usually you can see right through that charade. Virgo is all about the details; she creates order out of chaos, the perfectionist always seeking to improve and repair. Do be mindful of criticizing. Your friends may not be so receptive and you need friends, Scorpio, so shush. I know it's hard. Where the Virgo energy is best utilized is in organizing and leading groups, getting all your friends together and attending to the details. You're brilliant at it. Join the ACLU or a political campaign because, yikes, 2020 is around the corner. Gun control? The issues are limitless, so do find a cause because we need you, Scorpio. Mars, your El Presidente, is currently in Virgo, and makes his 2-year appearance in your 11th house. You can accomplish more this month than in all of 2019. It's through your connections where it all plays out. Network, baby, network! It's not what you know, but who you know, remember? September 14th, the Full Moon in Pisces activates your 5th house of love affairs and fun! With all the new people you're meeting this month, one may turn into a hot romance. That's motivation enough, right? Those in relationships, spice it up and get naughty. Scorpio likes aphrodisiacs, get creative, and give it a go. It's going to be one fun September, Scorpio!

Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21)

Back to life, back to reality, Sag. Summer fun time is over, and it's back to work. The month begins with a New Moon in Virgo activating your 10th house of career. This New Moon is the most productive and creative one of the entire year. The universe's energy is hooking you up to thrive professionally. But you still have to play an active role. Get organized, disciplined, and set those intentions high. With five planets in your 10th house, and Mercury, Venus, and Mars all converging, you should feel added confidence to accomplish whatever you wish career-wise. As the zodiac's resident philosopher, you must instill every action with a purpose. I know that you'll ponder each decision and then explain the purpose to the rest of us. Relax on the over-analysis. It's exhausting for you and, yep, for those around you. Try practicing loving-kindness, or Metta, toward yourself, especially when it comes to work. You will still get everything done but with a little more ease. On September 14th, the Full Moon in Pisces lands in your 4th house of home and hearth. Cozy up—don't leave the house for a few days. It's a perfect excuse to binge-watch Netflix or lounge in bed with your lover. Don't forget to eat. Google a new vegan recipe and cook up a delish new meal while indulging at home. Work it, Sag, and make September a great start to the new season.

Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19)

Can you contain your excitement, Cap? Never mind, because you shouldn't! September is set to be the most productive and creative month of your year. Add the New Moon in Virgo, and the possibilities for growth become endless. Virgo's entry into your 9th house at the start of the month (think practical perfectionist, working almost as hard as you) shines the spotlight on expansion—in education, travel, worldview, and spirituality. 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 eight planets in earth signs, all of your BFFs are harmoniously collaborating to broaden your world. This is no conspiracy. The eccentric planet Uranus is playing nice with the New Moon, asking you, Capricorn, to let loose, so don't be so self-controlling. Perfection isn't always the end result. On September 14th, the Full Moon in Pisces lands in your 3rd house of communication, your attitude, and community. Where Virgo appears, it's all about the details and order. But Pisces is non-linear, it's creative chaos and it's where you find your inspiration. Hang out in your favorite local cafe and people watch. Write, daydream, and let your mind wander. It's the perfect antidote for all the Virgo energy. Cheers to September, Capricorn. I can't wait to see what you will learn and accomplish!

Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18)

Aquarius, Summer may be over, but September is gonna be one hot, steamy month. The month begins with the New Moon in Virgo, in your 8th house, the deep stuff—sex, intimacy, money, and obsessions. It's not just any New Moon, there are 5 planets all in Virgo, which have all descended themselves into your 8th house. Add your ruler Uranus to the mix and you've got one heavenly love fest. The priority this month is sex and money. It is what 95% of the population thinks about daily, so you're on topic. Virgo's earthy nature is sexy, grounded and practical. She is all about the details, attending to every single one. Virgo energy has the incredible gift of knowing what's making sense and what's not. Your attention to details under the sheets is what makes you stand out as a lover. Expect to spend a lot of time between the sheets, but do come up for air for a few if you can. How about now? Let's talk about money. This month, get your finances organized. It's an ideal time to learn about bitcoin and investments, and a swell time to refinance your home and pay off your debts. Without Virgo, your finances would be a disaster and you'd be celibate not by choice. This month, get your finances organized, buy a cool stock, and romp in between the sheets. September 14th, the Full Moon in Pisces, activates your 2nd house of cash, self-worth and your talents. Pisces needs to be inspired, to dream and to tap into your inner creativity. You need to have faith and believe in yourself, dear Aquarius. Just let your imagination soar and you'll be amazed at all the brilliant ideas you'll conjure. Just be sure to bow down to Virgo in thanks Aquarius.

Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20)

Pisces, love is coming to town! The yearly New Moon in Virgo sashays into your 7th house of partnerships, both personal and business, at the start of the month. This is no ordinary New Moon, it's a rare occurrence with only harmonious energies. The celestial lineup has 5 planets in Virgo camping out in your house of love. The planet of love and beauty, Venus is making out with Mars, the sexy warrior, causing a carnal combustion that inspires great love songs. Those in committed relationships, this is the month to fall in love again and again. Single, Pisces, get out there! You've got this rare opportunity to find that someone special this month. Business partnerships can thrive now, and if you are looking to collaborate, this is the month! Pisces, you are so good at taking care of those you love. With Virgo ruling your house of partnerships, your natural inclination is to fix, organize, and bring order to partner's life. Too bad you can't do this for yourself. Your personal full moon in Pisces in on September 14th, shining a strobe light on you! Pisces, you're devoted to others, but on this Full Moon, direct that devotion to yourself. You teach us how to dream, and to get inspired by the universe. We need you Pisces, so give yourself some love this month for a change too!
