Kicking off a new month, we transition out of September and welcome the first brisk and chilly month of autumn into our lives.

Then, on the 30th, Mars goes retrograde in the sign of Gemini, which could make life a little chaotic and unpredictable for a while. Lastly, we also celebrate our final harvest sabbat of the season, Samhain, on the 31st of the month, bringing forth energies focused on family, roots, and spiritual connection, which could have the signs connecting deeper with those around them, doing some inner reflection and focusing more on spiritual practices.

Kicking off a new month, we transition out of the remaining summer days and welcome a brisk new coolness into our life. September marks the start of the harvest season and welcomes in many new energies aligned with property and abundance. With its powerful energies of focus, success, and motivation guiding the way, this is likely to be a good month for signs to reflect and reevaluate things in their life and channel more inspiration and ideas towards their endeavors. However, with the slowness of a new season also creeping in, this is likely to bring some restful energies into your life that are likely to encourage a more stable and steady flow towards creating a joyous life that is meant to nurture you.
With that said, for the first half of the month, we will be led by the Virgo sign, pushing energies of hard work and focus into our space. This is likely to have us focusing more on making progress on any important goals in our lives and help to bring a more grounded and open perspective to life. This could also inspire new ideas, new creativity, and an overall more fun-loving look at life. Virgo could even help us to tie up any loose ends in our lives and bring a close to previous chapters to help us move forward.
As from this, some key influences happening from Mercury and Venus this month are also likely to affect us in a number of ways. To start, on the 5th, Venus will enter the focused sign of Virgo, which could bring a practical tone to our love life and boost our ability to manifest new things in love. This could have us more willing to go out of our way for those we care for and also have us seeking some gentle love and care in our own life. To follow, on the 9th, Mercury retrograde in the Libra sign begins and could cause some friction with the balance in our life. All signs will need to be careful not to lash out or fall into toxic patterns of the past. Work to maintain balance and keep your eyes forward. Then, on September 22nd, we welcome the Autumn Equinox, pushing us to find balance within ourselves and focus our energy. This is a time to focus on gratitude, rebirth within ourselves, and quiet, contemplative ease into new beginnings. And lastly, on the 23rd, we also transition into the season of the Libra, pushing us to renew our energy, find balance, and focus more on personal expression.
As you can see, September is likely to be full of many different energies that are likely to offer us a chance to focus more on bettering ourselves.
