Welcome to September, Capricorn. Last month asked you to open up and express your emotions to friends and partners. After all, they can’t read your mind. Now, this month kicks off with a full moon in dreamy Pisces on Tuesday, September 1. You’re known for being logical. Your rational mind does not often care for dreamy distractions, but this can sometimes limit you. During this lunation, draw a bath and take it easy. Pour yourself a glass of wine or make some tea. Open your mind to creative thinking. This psychic time can grace even the most skeptical Capricorn with a groundbreaking idea.
Warrior planet Mars goes retrograde from Wednesday, September 9 to Friday, November 13. Mars is all about action, a trait Capricorns admire. Whether it’s a business deal, fundraiser, or a date night, you like things to move forward as planned. When Mars goes retrograde, all of that becomes more difficult. You may feel like you’re walking through mud. This transit is also crucial to your growth when it comes to how you communicate with others and asks you to slow down and lean into the softer, more Venusian side of life. Buy a lover flowers. Stay home and masturbate to pretty music. Allow yourself to take your time on a creative project. All retrogrades are opportunities, we just have to step into them.
Thursday, September 17 brings a new moon in organized Virgo. Everyone goes on about how clean Virgo is, but it’s also represented by the Hermit card in the tarot. Around this time, you may feel a bit messy and cluttered. Use this new moon to clean things up a bit, whether that means tidying up your actual place of living, engaging in meditation to clear your mind, or both.
Libra season begins on Tuesday, September 22. This is the sign of partnership, justice, and balance. Despite your sign’s tendency to have a more serious nature, you also likely have a sexually adventurous side. Libra season is perfect to see what dating is like in a COVID-19 world — just use all the necessary safety precautions, of course. If you’re already coupled, reignite any spark lost to stay-at-home orders and go lay around at a park, while wearing PPE and playing some of your favorite music.
