The sun starts out the month in focused Virgo, which makes it the perfect time to set new goals, get super organized, and re-orient yourself for the last few months of the year. We’re all quite lucky that the new school year starts in this earth sign – it’s particularly conducive to getting rid of what you don’t need and devising clever new systems and good habits that make your life easier, whether that’s hanging out with a new group of friends, picking up another academic interest, or starting a new exercise regime.


Transit Cheat Sheet For Everyone:

*There’s a supercharged new moon on Thursday the 5th – it joins the sun and Mercury in ultra-intuitive Virgo. It also sextiles what we call an “exalted” Jupiter (astrological shorthand for “planet with the home field advantage,” basically) – making this an extra, extra, EXTRA lucky day to start new ventures that you would like to follow through for a long time. Through the weekend, these aspects will remain rivetingly beautiful – a high energy time to make your inner intentions part of the external world. BASICALLY: good vibrations this weekend, y’all. If you are a Virgo, Cancer, Pisces, or Capricorn, this is an especially sublime month for you. The world is literally your oyster. *If you are a Scorpio, Taurus, Leo or Aquarius, you had a surprise last month and a conversation you thought you’d had planned out well didn’t go how you’d expected. Uranus was messing with you – take it as a sign. The person who reacted badly doesn’t belong in your life. *There’s also a bangin’ full moon with fantastic aspects for fun and romance on September 19th. It will bring closure to an unsure situation for air and fire signs, and will put the seal on a new deal or commitment for earth and water signs.
