Welcome to September, Gemini. Last month reminded you that you must adapt or be left behind — which worked out great for you because Geminis are social chameleons. Even during tough times, you find a way to flourish. You’re alive with ideas and inspiration. On the full moon in dreamy, creative Pisces on Tuesday, September 1, you figure out how to make your ideas happen. Whether it’s a personal or professional project, the loose ends finally come together. Full moons mean culminations, after all.
Your sex life faces challenges when warrior planet Mars goes retrograde from Wednesday, September 9, to Friday, November 13. Mars rules sex, ambition, and anger, so when the planet goes retrograde, these areas of your life can feel like they’re falling flat. You may experience a drop in libido and have trouble asserting yourself. This is tough for a Gemini! You love being the center of attention, but use this time to look inward, connect with partners emotionally, and do the groundwork for projects you can launch after the retrograde is over.
Your professional life may get a boost under the power of a new moon in organized Virgo on Thursday, September 17. Typically, you love to show off the fruits of your labor, but often find yourself scrambling to finish projects because you’re prone to procrastination. This lunation helps light a fire under you, so you feel productive and energized.
The end of the month brings good news for you. The fall equinox occurs on Tuesday, September 22, which means it’s time to look for the future and prepare for the winter. It’s also the first day of Libra season, which rules justice, balance, and partnerships. As we enter the thick of election season, your activist side may feel a burst of motivation. If you could use a break, let Venus, goddess of abundance, beauty, and Libra’s ruling planet, take over. Draw a bath. Bring champagne and grapes. What about a waterproof vibrator? Self-care is a radical act, and don’t you forget that, Gemini. See you in October!

We know many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now. Although the stars don’t have answers to the multitude of questions running through all of our minds, astrology may at least provide some comfort during times of uncertainty. We urge you to donate to one or all of these organizations if you’re able to; if you can’t, we created a guide to ways you can support the BLM movement other than financially.
