THE STARS for September 2023 Horoscope
Welcome to September!
Spring is in the Air and the Stars reflect welcome change and expansion after a couple of months of doing some major “inner work”. Here in the Southern Hemisphere, this is the time of year, where you know that Summer is around the corner and it’s time to detox, declutter and re-organise so you are full of vitality and able to expand and finish the year strong.
The start of the month brings 3 very important shifts.
Firstly, Venus completes her 40 day retrograde through Leo on September 4th. This ends a lengthy period of inner reflection about how we show up authentically in our lives both professionally and personally. The desire to honour our creative needs has been in sharp focus. And given the retrograde has been in the sign of the Lioness, there’s been a healthy dose of courage thrown in to take the bold steps to make the change that our heart knows it’s time to make. Those of you with planets in Leo, Libra and Taurus will welcome this shift with open arms!
The day after, on September 5th, Jupiter, the planet of abundance, good luck and expansion is stationing retrograde. This marks the beginning of a period of reviewing beliefs, considering professional development options and contemplating your spiritual priorities. This will be especially significant for those of you with planets in Sagittarius, Taurus and Pisces through until January 2024.
Also in retrograde as the month begins is Mercury emphasising September’s power to revise, rethink and redo. Given Mercury is in rulership in Virgo, this retrograde enhances our ability to focus on minor details, diagnose problems and communicate effectively. On September 6, Mercury meets up with the Sun and soon after makes a supportive connection with expansive Jupiter which helps bring the Mercury retrograde issues to resolution. When Mercury stations direct on Sept 16 your mind will be sharp and you can get back to operating efficiently.
Throughout September, Mars, the planet which represents your drive and energy levels is transiting through Libra highlighting the importance of right relations. The desire to get out and socialise shifts this month. It’s a great period for business networking in person and getting together with your favourite peeps.
Mid-month the New Moon in Virgo occurs on Sept 15th which is the ideal time for setting goals and intentions on health, wellbeing and streamlining efficiencies in your professional life. New ideas can drop in around this time as Mercury, the lunations ruling planet is about to end his retrograde.
September 29th heralds the Full Moon in Aries. This brings up the need for balance between our own needs and those of our partners (professional and/or personal). With the Moon’s ruler Mars co-present with the South Node, you may realise it’s time to walk away from any partnerships which don’t value you having your independence.

Welcome to September 2023 Aries.
Ahhhhhh – love – the desire to love and be loved is in the air! All month your ruling planet Mars is tracking through Libra emphasising the importance of relationships right now Both professionally and personally. This is the ideal time to establish new partnerships and invest in those that you value the most. Given many of you have been through significant career shifts over the past year, you’ll appreciate this window to make new professional connections and find people you’re excited to collaborate with.
Equally in focus for you in September is your health and wellbeing. Both the Sun and Mercury are inviting you to have that check-up, clean up your daily habits and declutter your spaces at home and at work. It’s time to let go of what you no longer need and anything that weighs you down physically or emotionally.
With Venus ending her 40 day retrograde through your creative sector, you are invited to boldly express your ideas and have lots of fun along the way. Being playful, making time for hobbies and / or spending time with children is more important than it’s been in a long while. Make the most of this by forming new “fun” habits.
The New Moon in Virgo on September 15th is a powerful time for you to set goals related to your health and wellbeing. Tune into what your ideal daily routine looks like. What are the “must dos” that have to happen everyday to sustain yourself. Unless you tend to your needs as a priority, you only end up resenting having to do so much for others!
The Full Moon in Aries on September 29 is in your sign. This spotlights any imbalance between your needs and the needs of key partnerships in your life. If you’ve been giving too much to others OR you’ve been very self-oriented, it will be highlighted so that you can restore the ideal balance.
Welcome to September 2023 Taureans.
The month ahead has plenty of positive expansion – personally, professional and on the home front. Here’s why.
Your ruling planet, Venus will complete her 40 day retrograde through your very private family sector on September 4. Finally, you can relax with a new, firmer footing at home. Since July 22, you’ve had the opportunity to tune into what you need most at home and what makes your heart sing when it comes to that area of life. If you have children, likely there’s a lighter, more playful energy surrounding the way you’re interacting with each other too.
With Venus now moving forward, this will also reflect positively in your work. The better we feel about our home life, the more readily we attract opportunities into our professional life.
Enhancing these positive shifts is Jupiter’s journey through your sign. On September 5, Jupiter comes to a stand-still ahead of his annual retrograde. This marks the half-way point of his fortuitous visit in Taurus. As he pauses, notice new clarity about how to progress your career AND your wellbeing. Over the coming months, you have the potential to be recognised for your skills and attitude both at work and socially. Make the most of this by actively sharing your success stories with your client base. Remember, if you don’t market yourself, people can’t find you. And if you’re not talking to people, you’re not top of mind. If you need a new website or headshots, the coming months are a wonderful time to do so!
Until September 16, you’ll have the opportunity to reconsider what ignites your passion and what brings you joy with Mercury retrograde. Remember, life is a combination of work and fun. Now’s the time to remind yourself of all the things you love doing that make your heart sing. It’s time to commit to being “lighter” in life once again.
The New Moon in Virgo on September 15th is the ideal opportunity to set goals around creative passion projects, having more fun and authentically expressing your innate talents in the world!
The Full Moon in Aries on September 29 illuminates a vital need for you to consistently create moments to retreat from the world. Whether you need to recover from past emotional events, a period of intense energy output or a health scare, do what you need to recalibrate your energy levels and restore balance. Meditation and time in nature is your friend at this time.
Welcome to September Geminis!
Ahhh, don’t you just love Mercury retrograde? As your ruling planet, you have the privilege of regular periods of pausing to revise, reflect and redo. Given your natural busy nature, this can be a welcome period for you to make time to put tools down and check that you’re focusing on tasks and activities that are aligned to the vision of what you’re creating.
Mercury’s current retrograde journey through Virgo is offering you time to contemplate your home and family life. What changes do you now realise you’re ready to make? This is one of the most favourable times to declutter all your living spaces to bring a new ease and flow into your daily life. Perhaps you want to make home more of a healing space. Or maybe you’re considering working from home? Or maybe you’re reviewing if it’s time to move due to changes in family circumstances.

As a reminder, 2023 is a once in 12 year opportunity for you to realise the importance of making time to retreat from the world. Whilst this can be challenging given your naturally curious and extroverted nature, the next few months bring in support to deepen your spiritual connection. Should you choose to take up the opportunity, your intuition and wellbeing will receive an enormous boost!! Meditation, mindfulness activities and time alone in nature without distraction are the ideal elixir to counterbalance the uber busy work/life you’ve created for yourself.
The New Moon in Virgo on September 15th is the ideal opportunity to set goals related to your home and family. An ideal window to give your home a new lease of life with some inspiring new objects as well as set intentions to have more fun playing with your tribe.
The Full Moon in Aries on September 29 spotlights groups, associations and organisations you belong to.

Welcome to September Cancerians!
Can you feel it? A newness coming through? This month brings a number of opportunities for you.
Firstly, Venus ends her 40 day retrograde through your values, finances and personal resources sector which has given you the opportunity to adjust these areas of life to ensure they are more aligned to your heart. Perhaps you’ve discovered a newfound appreciation for the value that you bring to the world with the work you do. Or you’ve found new ways to bring in additional income? Or you’ve discovered more joyful ways to make a living. However it’s unfolded, September is a time to act on the clarity that you now hold. When you do, new opportunities will arise to support you to engage your innate abilities in the world.
The first half of the month also brings you time to focus on your marketing and networking. The Sun is illuminating Mercury which is retrograde up until September 16 in this area of your life.

This is also an opportunity for you to consider the kinds of organisations you want to work with. You are an attractive asset to companies right now with your emotional intelligence and innate understanding that for all teams to thrive, they must first create a culture where sharing ideas and being heard without criticism is paramount. The world of AI is working to your advantage because workplaces, more than ever, have to be places where people want to come together because they sense they belong!
The New Moon in Virgo on September 15th is the ideal opportunity to set marketing and networking goals that can play a key role in advancing your career or expanding your business.
The Full Moon in Aries on September 29 may bring up emotions related to your career.

Mercury is retrograding through your career sector until September 16 helping you identify options for new pathways forward.
