Here's What September 2017 Looks Like For Your Zodiac Sign
You made it through August’s Eclipses, but it’s still intense times, as the energies that were kicked up last month continue to play themselves out.
Be patient as you figure out what’s right for you to do as things quickly change within you and in the world at large. The main theme of September is to confront the truth, especially when you’d rather check out, or ignore it.
Our resident astrologer babe Jessica Lanyadoo says stay present, balance self-care with self-awareness, and do your durn best, lovers.
March 21 to April 19
It can be seductive to accept the limitations of your situation (whatever you think your limitations are) without investigating them deeply, but it’s not wise. This month is time for you to look back at your assumptions about what you can or can’t do and bust them open. Your fears may feel like reality, but that doesn’t make it so. Try not to take on anything brand new this month as you rework your relationship to what you have. There’s no time like the present, and there’s no one like you, Aries.
April 20 to May 20
You are super sensi to the world around you, and if it’s out of whack, so are you. This is the wrong time to be indulgent or to hide away from your problems. Regard the things that suck the most as signposts for what requires your attention. In others words, be the change you want to see in your life. The star sign Taurus is a material girl, living in a material world, and the more involved you get with the substantial world around you, the happier you’ll be, my love.
May 21 to June 21
The only way to heal it, is to feel it. You don’t need your life to be perfect (although that’d be nice) but you do need it pointed in the right direction. This month you’ll be confronted by the parts of your life that aren’t working, and if you’re brave, this can be a wonderful thing. You’ve been dragging your feet as your fears make you feel like there’s no point in trying. The truth is that the only way to truly fail is to not try at all. Learn from your problems, don’t avoid them this month.
June 22 to July 22
When you’re a lunar soul living in a solar world, things can get complicated. It’s an art to be able to really stay with your feels while functioning in the world around you, and this month will give you chances to perfect it, moon child. Stay with your emotions instead of responding to them in a reactive way, or worse, repressing them altogether. The only way to the other side is through it; confront your feels with love and you’ll deepen your tolerance for the rough stuff this month.
July 23 to Aug. 22
Get it out of your head that there’s a “right” or a “wrong” answer, Leo; in life there’s just different choices, with different consequences. Know yourself well enough to know what’s most important to you, and make sure that your actions reflect it—especially when it’s hard to do. You can’t control what happens right now, but you can make sure that your successes and failures are your own, and that you’re down to grow and learn from it all. Do you, my love.
Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
Don’t be a dick! When you’re fixated on your problems it’s easy to act out towards others without realizing it. Beware of the corrosive impact of fear, resentment, and anger this month. You have a right to all of your feelings, but not to any action. Sort out the difference between your reactions and the actions that you’re entitled to. Find creative outlets for your hard feels, like exercise, writing, or signing at the top of your lungs. And next, sort through your options for best results, Virgo.
Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
If you can’t rely on yourself, who can you rely on? It doesn’t matter what you do this month, if you’re not doing you. Instead of adding more ideas and theories to your self-care arsenal, it’s time for you to integrate what you already know. This month, it’s time to walk your talk and embody your truth, even if that takes you down a bumpy path. Practice all the ways you know to love yourself Libra, especially when your fears and uncertainties are kicked up.
Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
When you’re fixated on your own feels, it’s easy to lose perspective. There’s always a bigger picture, and if you’ve lost sight of it, you’ve kinda lost your superpower. You’re a person who can look the hard stuff in the eye and be here for it and the world needs that right now, Scorpio. The time you feel like you’re falling, is the exact time to step into service this month. This is one of those times that the more you give, the more you will have to give, my love.
Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
You can’t escape your feels by telling yourself tall tales and redirecting your attention on nicer things. And it doesn’t matter how effectively you explain your perspective, sometimes people will simply not agree with you and don’t want to see it your way. You’re on call to confront the messy, complicated, truth this month, even if it’s hard. Accept your current situation so that you can identify what needs to get done, and then make it happen, Sagittarius.
Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
Practice showing up, Cappy. You can expect relationship issues to rear their emo heads this month, as interpersonal dynamics that you’ve been avoiding catch up with you. Last month’s Eclipses kicked up all kinds of intensity and if you want to avoid all that messiness, you’re in for a bit of a surprise. Show up with an open and vulnerable heart; it’s OK to not have the answers. Part of intimacy is about figuring them out together.
Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
It’s time. You’ve been trying to figure out a way around having to do something stressful, but there is no way. It’s time for you to act, and you don’t have to be perfectly ready before you do. Practice, purpose, and process are your themes this month—no perfection. Be patient with the emotions that kicked up in yourself or the people around you. Act with integrity and carry on, Aquarius.
Feb. 19 to March 20
You can’t expect others to manage your boundaries if you’re not doing it yourself, Pisces. The trick to healthy interactions is knowing where you begin and end, and allowing yourself the freedom to honor your own experience. You’re not better or worse than anyone; you’re a person, and the care and attention you give yourself should reflect the same rights and responsibilities that you’d afford anyone else—no more and no less.
