We are always surprised by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it’s the most compatible signs or how each sign handles conflict in relationships.
Expect this September to be a month of accountability as the planets come together to help us see how our words, values, and beliefs do not match our actions and the steps we can take to put things in order.
The month opens with an emotional Full Moon in compassionate Pisces on September 2, which highlights how our beliefs shape how we treat others and how we are treated in return. For some of us, this Full Moon will show us where we need healthier boundaries or be more generous.
On the 5th, talkative Mercury enters fair and objective Libra, pushing for more communications, negotiations, and decisions where everyone feels valued and heard.
The next day, the loving planet Venus moves into a bold and passionate Leo, which not only encourages us to love what is special about us but also encourages us to imagine how much better our world would be if everyone (especially our unsung heroes) was treated like they were were special too.
On September 9, things come to a grinding halt as action-oriented Mars begins its two-month retrograde in stubborn Aries. With Mars being retrograde, it’s time to slow down, re-evaluate our actions, as well as our relationship, and find the best way forward.
Between expansive Jupiter advancing again into ambitious Capricorn on September 12 and a New Moon in disciplined Virgo on September 17, whatever actions we take will require patience and some level of personal responsibility, especially since Saturn begins to move forward again (September 29) in Capricorn as well.
On the 22nd, the Sun enters Libra, placing even more emphasis on relationships and reciprocity. During the Libra season, we can expect to learn the value of sharing, helping others, and leading by example.
When Mercury dives into fearless Scorpio on the 27th, we are called to call out and face our shadows and fears. Without further ado, this is the monthly horoscope for September 2020:
Your heart may not be in something the way it once was, especially with a goal or a work-related issue. Now is the time to rethink where you are putting your energy or to redirect it entirely.
Connecting with others could give you the clarity you are looking for. Stay open. Give room for your creative impulses too. Look for ways to use your gifts to have a positive impact on others. Your generosity will be returned to you.
This month, you are prompted to examine your friendships and intimate relationships. If guilt or unnecessary obligations are weighing you down, it’s time to approach the situation honestly (but with love) and in a good way.
Be authentic. During this time, you get the green light to move forward on a creative project, but keep things a secret for the time being while you troubleshoot. Ask for help when needed.
You might receive fanfare this month around your career or a major achievement, or you might decide to quit your job in search of something better.
Either way, you are called upon to reevaluate your goals for the future and determine if you still want what you want. This month, you are doing better by following your heart and mind. Stay rooted and you won’t lose.
You are called upon to honestly assess where you may be asking for too little in your relationships and yourself, because you can (and should) aim higher.
While this isn’t the month to move forward with your goals, it’s a good time to reaffirm your worth, get the emotional nourishment you need, and embrace new ways of thinking and communicating. Learning a new skill might give you a boost.

You have big dreams that you want to accomplish, but this month is asking you to see where you need to take responsibility to make those dreams come true.
Instead of focusing on what you don’t have or settling for a substitute, reframe your thinking on scarcity and abundance. You’ll have the power to magnetize just about anything (and anyone) you want in September. Remember that what is meant for you will not need to be forced to happen.
A relationship-related question might come to a head this month, which might cause you to look at how you perhaps spend too much time being the power behind the throne instead of taking your rightful place.
As such, it might be time to part ways with someone and focus on yourself. If you are looking to reinvent yourself or take back the reins of your life, September will give you the opportunity. Focus on what you want, ignore self-doubt.
Your health and well-being are the main focus during the first part of the month, as you are encouraged to take care of your mind and body. If a job or a close personal relationship makes you feel stressed, acknowledge how you feel.
Expect this month to help you work on how you deal with your relationship boundaries. As part of this job, you might want to spend some time alone, which is a good thing. Loneliness can bring you clarity and renewal. Own your moment in the spotlight.
You could receive recognition for your talents or a creative project that you completed this month, which could be a win for you. However, as for what you plan on next, hit pause and take some time to appreciate how far you’ve come.
Now is not the time to go ahead or do more than you need to. Consider this as a time to polish your plans, your job, and your well-being. Take it easy.

It’s time to finalize or wrap up a chapter this month that relates to a family or home issue. It might help you achieve a major goal or build on something you are envisioning.
Any success you see this month will also come from tempering your need for instant gratification, avoiding distractions, and looking before you leap. Taking time behind the scenes or looking after your spiritual well-being will also help.
You might have a time of being in the right place at the right time with an idea, conversation, or project that leads to recognition and greater assertiveness.
But while you rejoice in the success, you are also urged to pay tribute to the people who have stepped forward to help you. Fostering intimacy and vulnerability in your relationships is where you’ll be doing a lot of work this month (especially around forgiveness), but also where you’ll earn the most rewards.
You might quit a job or an income stream this month, but try not to worry too much as new opportunities are on the horizon. Gifts come to you through your partner or people who want to help or collaborate with you, so try not to be too resistant.
Expect to work on how you communicate and compromise now, as you will find that the need to be right will neither be helpful nor productive. In the meantime, take your time when jumping into new projects. Weigh your options.
This month could be an important turning point for you in your self-perception and approach to your goals. If you’ve been holding back because due to lack of confidence or on behalf of someone else, expect to be pressured into moving differently.
Where you can expect the biggest push is around your finances and sense of worth. In other words, it’s time to be more proactive and demanding to get your due. You have what it takes.
