As quickly as summer came, so is it gone! Without blinking an eye, we’re past Labor Day and into September and all that comes with it. In the fashion world, that means the official start of the new year, and everywhere else it’s back to school, hence work. When it come to horoscopes, this month we’re celebrating all Virgos, followed closely by Libras. What’s also on the agenda is a Friday the 13th, a full moon, a new moon, and plenty of opportunity to start over or take control of things for the remainder of the year.
We personally love the month of September as we use it to recalibrate ourselves, take a look at the calendar and what lies ahead. It’s also a great time to look back at the past months and see how much changed since last year. Being big believers of fresh beginnings, the back to school vibe is engraved in us since our days at actual school.
But before we divulge any more predictions, keep scrolling to find out what September has in store for you, the surprises you might encounter, and more!
August 23rd – September 22nd
Firstly, a very happy birthday to you dear Virgo! We’re sure you ended the summer with a bang by celebrating your birthday in full glory. While you’re on the spotlight, make the most of it by getting back into a healthy routine, organizing and scheduling ahead. If something seems to be getting in the way, trust your gut and follow your senses – you’ll learn something in the process. The first moon coming up i the full moon on the 14th; watch out for your emotions and work on your relationship status, you never know what’s coming up!
September 23rd – October 22nd
That so-called back to school feeling can either make you feel completely reinvigorated or pretty dazed and confused. Whichever end of it you are, we recommend adding some self-practice into your weekly schedule. Whether it’s a 10-min meditation or journalling at the end of the day, a little goes a long way. This will also get you ready for the Pisces full moon on the 14th, as well as any unforeseen action that might come up before your birthday month. Turns out, every new season has its ups and downs, but eventually all comes together.
October 23rd – November 21st
Not the kind to ask for advice, let alone guidance? This might change during this month, because sometimes a little outside perspective is all you need. Nothing ever gets done by one person alone, remember that! Speaking of people, September is looking busy – fashion weeks can take their toll on you so make sure to get in enough hydration and nutrition to avoid feeling down. As with your peers, romance is bright and visible on the night of Friday 13th, leading into the full moon on the 14th. Later during the month, you’ll find yourself getting creative and working on a project.
November 22nd – December 21st
Your career is in the top 3 priorities of your life, and that can often take a strain on your other past times and hobbies. But don’t back down just yet – with a focus like yours, get your routine back to its peak success point and you’ll find everything falling into place slowly but surely. You’re a leader at heart, and those around you are waiting for your to take the lead. Emotions are also your strong suit, so look out for the full moon on the 14th as things might flourish in your current romantic status.
December 22nd – January 19th
Ambitious and avid traveller are two adjectives that best describe you, dear Cap! And it seems that there’s no slowing down this season. You’ve been committed to that upcoming vacation for a while now, but all you need is to finalize some details. With the full moon coming up, instead of new romance or a fling, you’ll deal with old partners trying to get you down a memory lane. Committed as you are to the future and success, we guarantee you won’t fall into that trap! The future will be more clear at the end of the month during the Libra new moon, so watch out!
January 20th – February 18th
How was your summer dear Aquarius? Feeling refreshed and buzzing with energy to take you into the new season? If you’re the type that isn’t feeling exactly back 100% then that means your personal relationships need some readjusting. Perhaps there’s something you’re not completely satisfied with, and now’s the time to speak up. Once that’s done, you’ll find ease towards the end of the month as the new moon shines some light on the 28th and you start thinking about your next goals.
February 19th – March 20th
Turns out that February 14th isn’t the most significant romantic date of the year. This September, all zodiac signs are dealing with personal and romantic relationships. Whether it’s a fling or something just at its early stage, you might want to start thinking whether to take it further or not. Moving on further into the month, you should carve out some time for yourself and figure out where you see yourself a few months from now. It will also be a turning point to realize who’s been closest to you in the past month, and who you need to bid farewell to.
March 21st – April 19th
Feeling like January 1st? The end of summer can be nostalgic and making you feel down, but it’s time to take a different approach. How about adopting some new habits that can make the transition into Fall a little easier? We’re thinking a closet cleanup and adding some self-care to your daily or weekly routine. Luckily for you, you’ll have a jam-packed schedule between socializing and setting new career goals. Watch out for the new moon on the 28th to see where you could improve!
April 20th – May 20th
Single and looking to settle down in the near future? Don’t just talk about it – make it happen! We recommend getting into online dating as well as accepting invitations left and right, you never know who you could meet. And if all goes down the drain, at least you figured out for yourself what it is you’re not looking for! The next weeks are looking busy with a full moon coming up on the 14th, followed by the last weeks of September setting your mind to the things that truly bring you joy in life.
May 21st – June 20th
It seems as though there’s a visible pattern come September every year. We’re semi-nostalgic about the summer coming to an end, saying goodbye to people we met along the way, and going back to a daily routine of work and sleep! The trick is not to let yourself go down that rabbit hole – instead, think positively and look for something to take your mind off of that feeling. Before you know it, it’ll be the end of the month and you’ll have made new acquaintances, embarked on a new project or even romance!
June 21st – July 22nd
Do you feel like summer didn’t actually ever really start because you were just too busy getting on with your life? Then September is for you dear Cancer – get out and about and act like summer is still ongoing. Try a new hobby, explore a new neighborhood, start a new workout class that you’ve been dreading to, and so on. The new moon on the 28th will set the example of a new season and with that come new priorities. Don’t wait any longer and make your dreams and wishes a reality.
July 23rd – August 22nd
Are you ready to tackle the new season now that your busy, busy summer is over? We hope you put your strength and strong mindset to work this month. Start by making to-do lists if you’re feeling like you’re already behind everything, and try to throw in some meditation whenever you’re feeling overwhelmed. You’d be surprised how effective only a few minutes can be. Work-wise, are you still happy with where this job is taking you? It might seem comfortable, but if you’re in need of a challenge, now’s the time! Look out for the new moon on the 28th as you’ll reunite with someone from the past!
