Hooray! Your September 2020 horoscope is here

Resident astrologer Natasha Weber shares your monthly horoscope for every star sign, for September 2020.

Aries (21 March – 19 April)

September’s new Moon provides a plethora of opportunities to fortify your mental health. One option that arises mid-month is particularly helpful, so don’t brush it off assuming you’ll soldier on. If you need extra support, there’s no shame in reaching out. Nervous about exposing your secrets, fears and vulnerabilities? Seek a tried and true professional organisation. They’re expertly trained, minus the judgement.

As Mars lingers in retrograde, you clash with a bully. Try as they might, they can’t force you to bend to their will. Yet, you feel pressured and downright pushed around. Tap into your inner warrior woman and push right back, Aries. Stand firmly by your beliefs while you exercise that self-confidence you’re famous for. By month’s end, Rams looking for employment, or launching a business get a lucky break when Saturn makes it happen. Now’s when your hard work finally pays off.

Taurus (20 April – 20 May)

Take a close look at your inner circle. Do you trust everyone in it? Humans are flawed by nature, and even those with the best intentions can make mistakes. So, it pays to be discerning about who you open up to. Be selective when revealing your secrets, especially if they’re incriminating, or could be easily misconstrued. Without realising, a friend allows private information to slip. Or, a loose-lipped frenemy does the same on purpose. Rather than having to clean up her mess, prevent it from happening in the first place. Hold your most sacred thoughts close to your chest, or only tell one trusted soul.

Loneliness creeps in due to Mars backwards slide in your solitude sector. Still, there are goals to conquer with the time you would typically spend on social catch-ups. Write yourself a list of all the things you’ve been putting off, and then tick them off, one-by-one. This way, you’ll achieve a huge sense of satisfaction.

Gemini (21 May – 20 June)

Mercury steps into your home zone, fixing up broken bits and pieces around the house. Whether it’s a leaky tap, peeling paint or your washing machine on the blink, you’ll be motivated to get your domestic life in tip-top shape. The only downside is that Mercury won’t visit until month’s end. Still, you can at least begin preparations by lining up the right tradesmen and materials for the job.

Generous Jupiter boosts finances in September by offering a lucrative partnership. Pay off outstanding bills, loans and debts while the going is good. As September wraps up, communication with a cherished relative flows more smoothly. Twins that have helped out a needy relative receive a beautiful gesture of gratitude. In moments like these, you realise how precious life truly is. And most importantly, how much this person means to you and your extended family.

Cancer (21 June – 22 July)

La Luna illuminates your higher learning zone at the start of September, giving you a shove in the right direction. Stop putting off what you know must be done, Cancer. This month ignites your desire to tackle an unpleasant task or take care of uncomfortable business. Confronting the issue is in your ultimate best interests, so you might as well grab the bull by the horns and get it over with! In facing your fears, you’ll not only conquer them, but you’ll realise what (or who) you feared was not omni-powerful after all. In fact, you’ll breathe a sigh of relief by month’s end when you finally get that monkey off your back.

Career wise, September is a great month to upskill. What string can you add to your bow to make your work more valuable? Improving what you bring to the table is a win-win for both your boss and yourself. And down the track, it puts you in a position to ask more money for your services. Expect a grand romantic gesture from your partner that deepens your bond.

Leo (23 July – 22 August)

Domestic bliss is yours when the Sun shines in your home zone. Family holds the key to happiness, so make every effort to create more togetherness. Make time for fun board games, fireside chats, or simply choosing dinner around the table rather than in front of the TV. This month, don’t discount the little things as trivial because they’ll actually make all the difference.

Struggling with a health concern? Saturn smiles on you, clearing up the confusion. By month’s end, you’ll have a clearer understanding of what you’re dealing with, and a plan to reclaim your wellness. However, if something feels off, seek a second opinion. You know your body better than anyone, so trust yourself, Leo. Others decide to amp up their fitness routine, as defined abs, tighter buns and sculpted arms top your wish list. Whatever your goals, you’re on track to achieving a gold star this month. You will have to put in the hard yards, but Saturn rewards your efforts.

Virgo (23 August – 22 September)

Quick-as-a-whip Mercury enters your sign on September 27th, lending its brilliance to a brewing scheme or idea. Other signs are thrown by Mercury’s move, but not you Virgo. This is one cosmic shift that’s entirely in your favour. You’ll be sharper and more on the ball than usual, so if you’re trying to make a point, now’s the time. One thing to be careful of though; try not to be too hard on yourself. Self-criticism is your weakness, getting you down at the best of times. Avoid over analysing everything you could have done better. Acceptance is where it’s at in September.

This month welcomes the new Moon in your sign too. Want a brand new beginning in one area of your life? It’s yours for the taking, but first, you need to let go of something (or someone) that’s holding you back. Can you do that? If not, there’s no use wasting time on a new startup. You’re better off closing the door that’s letting in the cold, frosty air before opening another.

Libra (23 September – 22 October)

Happy birthday lovely Libra! The Sun lights up your sign on September 22nd, beginning a brand new solar year that’s full of new possibilities and fresh horizons. Before this, it’s wise to reflect on your goals. How can you conquer them if they are outdated? The first step is to strategically outline your objectives. Writing a step-by-step process helps you hit your targets. Yet, knowing what you want is half the battle. Intellectual Mercury leaps to the rescue when the cerebral planet graces your sign at the start of the month. Then, you’ll be filled with super-smart schemes.

By mid-month, September’s new Moon glows in your dream sphere, inspiring you to go deep. Journaling, shadow work or meditation is especially healing at this time. You do have a tendency to put others’ needs ahead of your own. But now, it’s time to prioritise your happiness. Health-wise, September’s full Moon encourages you to eat cleaner and greener.

Scorpio (23 October – 21 November)

When Mars goes retrograde in your health zone, it’s time to review your wellness regime – quick-smart! Whatever you’re indulging in that’s detrimental to your wellbeing, try your best to curb it in September. We all have our vices, but you know your body better than anyone Scorpio. So, it pays to be your own disciplinarian when it comes to getting the best out of it. The same can be said for your mental health too. Mars challenges your sanity. However, the red planet also helps you find the support you need and the courage to ask for it.

By mid-month your creative fire burns bright, thanks to Neptune’s influence. If you’re an artist, you’re likely to produce some of your finest work at this time. Writer’s words become unblocked, dancer’s movements are unrestrained, and painter’s brushes create masterpieces. Regardless of your preferred means of creative expression, let it flow! By September 22nd, the Sun illuminates your recuperation zone, begging for a little pampering. Claim some me time, minus the guilt.

Sagittarius (22 November – 21 December)

Archers breathe easier when Jupiter abandons its retrograde on September 13th. During its backwards spin, life may have felt like walking in treacle, where you’re making a massive effort and not really getting anywhere, right? Well, that begins to ease now that your planetary guardian angel is back on duty. There’s some fallout to contend with, but you’ll have your usual optimism return with a vengeance, particularly when it comes to your career. Explore job opportunities as they arise, and most importantly, don’t forget your worth.

September’s new Moon encourages some Archers to pop the question, while others announce an engagement or happy addition to their family. Health wise, you’ll be motivated to make a major change, as you begin a new fitness program, dietary shake up or detox. Signing up for online Pilates or yoga classes reaps tons of benefits, not only to your physical body but for your mental health too.

Capricorn (22 December – 19 January)

Talk about what you’re keeping locked away in your heart, Capricorn. September’s full Moon amplifies all the feels, which can be cathartic if released. Mercury’s shift facilitates an intimate discussion, so don’t hold back. Express your emotions freely, without shame or reservation. You’ll not only get troubles off your chest, but you’ll come one step closer to healing an old wound.

Mars’ rewind through your home zone asks you to attend to home tasks. A recently completed renovation or do-it-yourself job may need a touch-up. Don’t worry, things will go smoothly the second time around. By month’s end, mega planets Jupiter and Saturn flow forward in your sign after a lengthy spell in retrograde. This is welcome news for any stalled projects or relationship hiccups, so proceed with full force within four days either side of September’s full Moon. But remember; the most important relationship is the one you have with yourself.

Aquarius (20 January – 18 February)

September’s full Moon brings cash karma to Aquarians. If you’ve practised sensible savings, you’ve got nothing to worry about. But, if you’ve overstretched your budget on an extravagant purchase, it’s time to pay the piper. Full financial recovery is possible using an unconventional approach. As you’ve mastered thinking outside the box, you won’t have any trouble coming up with an ingenious plan. Consider a new tactic but do your research on its effectiveness first. Most importantly, trust your gut feels over someone else’s assurances.

Venus glows in your relationship zone, which is good news for couples missing that special spark. Now’s your chance to reignite what’s faded over time. A little imagination is all that’s needed to turn up the bedroom heat. Romance your partner in novel ways – lacy lingerie, strawberries and cream or playing out your wildest fantasies ought to do the trick.

Pisces (19 February – 20 March)

This month’s full Moon graces your sign, Pisces, making September a productive time for Fish. Overdue tasks and projects finally come to fruition this month. Even if the job isn’t 100 percent complete, you’ll be on the homeward stretch. Don’t rush the final stages, though. Keep on task and do your due diligence, especially when it comes to financial incomings and outgoings.

La Luna introduces singles to a new love. Make sure your online presence shows you off to your best advantage. No photos with exes, please! Couples welcome a new chapter in their relationship that focuses on forgiveness. If you’re carrying the burden of guilt, you need to forgive yourself first and foremost. Then, you and your partner can walk hand-in-hand into the next stage of your future together. This month, gregarious Jupiter boosts your social scene. While it’s a slow build towards party season, at least you’ll enjoy some fun interactions along the way. One special friend stands out from the crowd, suggesting that you may have found a new partner in crime.
