This is a fascinating and illuminating month for you, Scorpio. You are essentially operating on two different fronts simultaneously, Being out in the world in new ways that involve partnership as well as your own unique contribution, and yet also delving down into the very depths of your being in a search for greater meaning and authenticity in everything that you do and are. The recent Virgo New Moon that colors your September month landed in your sector of societal contribution and future plans, in square with your ruler, Mars, in your sector of intimacy and self-exploration. When Mercury retrogrades on the 9th, just ahead of the Pisces Full Moon of the 10th, this conditions you to ask more questions than coming up with answers, and as you consider all that you are below the polished surface, the questions become more profound and the ultimate solution more complex, the further you go. You are receiving intimations of deep principle that you cannot deny or avoid speaking to, or, indeed, acting upon. The good news is that all this takes you further down the path of your life purpose, as you can come to that.

The month of September begins just after the Virgo New Moon that defines a new cycle covering most of what unfolds in September. This New Moon signaled opportunities for things related to your future vision, your aspirations and your collective values. You may be inspired by the prospect of doing something greater with an impact on society, or just by being helpful and of service to your community. Mercury transiting in Libra could mean that what is motivating you at this time may not be entirely conscious and you could be attracted to those who are dedicating themselves to a cause sparked by the injustice of the world. There could be difficult realizations in connection with the hidden centers of your being, and you could also find inspiration there by tuning more directly into intuition or surprise information of others. What binds you to others either by contracts or by commitment might also come into play thanks to a highlighted presence of your ruler, Mars, currently transiting in the part of your chart that relates to partnership agreements and other people’s resources. This month you may come to realize that in order to pursue your aspirations you will need to enlist the aid of allies that can support you. It could be a good time to assess what or who is aligned with your ideals versus those who might be detrimental to your progress. If you have a tendency to sacrifice your well-being or even yourself for the sake of keeping the peace, you may come to realize that this tendency is damaging to your pathway forward. On the other hand, if you are at times too uncompromising, you may need to put the water in your wine during September and accept what others are bringing to your table.
Venus enters Virgo on the 4th which brings some relief for your process as it forms a supportive aspect to planets in your sign. The productive pressure that you might have experienced in August could give way to a much smoother momentum in the weeks ahead. You might find yourself reorganizing your priorities, especially after Mercury stations retrograde in Libra on the 9th.
The Pisces Full Moon culminates on the 10th, in your creative sector, giving graceful support to your passions, your inspirations and your desire for pleasurable and creative experiences to permeate your reality. This Full Moon may allow you to take stock of where you stand in terms of your creative self-expression. If things have felt burdened or limited more recently, this could be an invitation to adjust your sails. If you have been giving a lot of your time to the wrong cause or if you are sacrificing too much of yourself with little rewards, the middle of September might highlight this dynamic. You will notice this especially as the Sun in Virgo is opposite Neptune on the 15th through 17th. Venus in Virgo squares Mars in Gemini on the same days, and this could bring up much of the same or highlight tension between your obligations and your personal vision.
The Sun’s ingress into the sign of Libra on the 22nd is a turning point in the month and year which signals the September Equinox. This year the Sun almost immediately meets Mercury moving retrograde on the 22nd through 23rd. Mercury comes into this conjunction with the Sun in Libra before re-entering Virgo moving backwards the same day. This reverse ingress could bring lucidity surrounding your aspirations or might also be the impetus for further question of where you are truly heading. Self-sabotaging tendencies could become more obvious or have something to do with your inability to see the big picture because of getting caught up in the details.
The New Moon in Libra on the 25th sits in opposition with Jupiter in early Aries and signals a fresh cycle in the part of your chart that relates to your unconscious process and any inner work that you might be inspired to attempt to accomplish. This is a liminal time of the year and it may even be more so for you as you stand on the threshold of renewed awareness of your soul’s purpose. You might have to go easy on yourself in the weeks ahead, or take stock of the revelations and epiphanies that have emerged before you can act on what has transpired during the major part of September. If you have become more aware of what is not working, the time between September 25th and the 30th could help with that, as the trine perfects between Mars and Saturn, which gives you concentration and may allow you take constructive action that will eventually change your situation.
Venus enters Libra on the 29th, emphasizing the part of your chart that relates to subtle emotions and mystical depths, implying that these last two days of September could come with a need for solitude and contemplation. Make sure you create enough space and time to honor this moment of the year before Scorpio season begins in a few more weeks.
