Welcome to September, Pisces. Last month left you relaxing and making time for yourself, perhaps with a bath or two. Even city-dwelling Pisces need to connect with the water. This month starts with all attention on you, due to a full moon in your sign on Tuesday, September 1. This is the perfect time to experiment with sex magic, or using your orgasms to manifest a desire. During masturbation or sex with a partner, simply visualize your dreams coming true as you orgasm. If orgasms are tricky for you, don’t sweat. It works just as well with any form of sexual energy.
Major changes take place when warrior planet Mars goes retrograde from Wednesday, September 9, to Friday, November 13. This planet rules traditionally masculine qualities (that apply to all genders) such as anger, aggression, and ambition. Usually, when Mars goes retrograde, these qualities are trickier to express or engage with. It’s important to remember, especially for a Pisces, that it’s OK to feel upset and express when you’re angry. In fact, it’s healthy. The important thing is just to communicate in an effective way and let your loved ones know when they’ve violated a boundary.
Your attention turns to your health during the new moon in Virgo on Thursday, September 17. Spending more time at home may have prompted you to put more effort into cooking for yourself and getting your sleep schedule on track, but you also must consider your emotional health. Many of us reconnected with exes or old friends during the pandemic. However, during this stressful time, it’s important that your relationships are healthy. Use this day to check in with yourself regarding emotional boundaries. If you can schedule an online therapy session, even better.
Tuesday, September 22 brings the fall equinox, which is a day for sharing gratitude. This can be as simple as texting a dear friend to say that you appreciate them. It’s also the first day of Libra season, which is associated with balance, partnerships, and justice. You are an extremely empathetic, emotional water sign, Pisces. These are good qualities, but seeing injustice in the world hits you hard. Continue to reach out to friends to form a support system. It’s easier to get involved in politics when you have trusted friends by your side. Stay safe and 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.
