Astrology by SlutBox: September 2018 Horoscopes
What's in the stars for you this month, babe? Read on for your exclusive September horoscopes from our resident Rosestrologist.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
With your ruler Mars continuing its journey through Taurus, your focus is on your possessions and income this month, little Ram. With a happy meeting of Venus and Jupiter early this month, your partnerships are especially important to you. Secure your bag, honey! As the Moon passes through fiery Aries in the beginning of September, you’ll feel a push to start new projects. The catch? Mercury is stalled in your house of creativity, temporarily frustrating your flow of creative juices. Don’t fret, this quagmire won’t last long. You’ll be back to yourself in no time.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
As Mars continues in your sign, you may prefer to be left alone to tinker around your workshop and work on your creations. Just take care not to be insensitive to the needs of others while you’re preoccupied with work. Mid-month, an alignment between Saturn and Pluto could mean difficulties within your home and family. Communication is key, darling. Venus will enter your fourth house of home and nurturing on the 7th and remain there until October 4th. Use this time to spruce up your home, and cozy up to your loved ones (especially the little ones).
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Your focus is on home and family this month, Gemini, thanks to your ruler Mercury moving out of Leo, through Virgo, and ending the month in Libra. The New Moon on the 3rd suggests that new beginnings are on the horizon, so it may be time to call a house meeting. On the 14th, the Sun and Mars conjunct in your fourth house will provide an opportunity for a major breakthrough… or a major meltdown. Take extra care around this time to nurture yourself and to sort out any relationship glitches with openness and compassion. Be honest with yourself - what’s really at the root of your frustration?
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You’re the It Girl of the moment, Moonchild, and the New Moon in Virgo will likely find you in a new locality or spending time with new friends. Venus meeting with Jupiter in Libra continues to make your home a very pleasant place to hang, but can also encourage excess, so watch that spending little Crab! Speaking of, Saturn will be restricting your finances, creating a tense angle to Pluto in the second week of the month. This means that you might need to pull those purse string a little tighter and take a look at that budget, especially by the third week of September, when Saturn aligns with Uranus. Don’t freak! A solution may come to you before the month is out with the Full Moon in Pisces offering you a prosperous path.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
September won’t be an easy month for you, brave Leo. Although loving Venus and Jupiter continue to make your social life bubbly, with Saturn in your sign, your current responsibilities (work, family, finances) are likely to weigh heavy. Expect frustrations and roadblocks around the second week of the month. By the third week, when Saturn aligns with Uranus, you will likely find adapting to new circumstances difficult or unpleasant. Don’t despair, Lionheart. With Jupiter in aspect to Uranus just after the Full Moon, a sudden opportunity should present itself that could have a profound effect on your life.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Happy birthday, gentle Virgo! And damn, what a powerful month you have in store! The planets that rule the three fire signs are all transiting through Virgo near your natal sun, and Mercury (your ruler) enters your sign on the 10th. Then, on the 14th, a New Moon brings auspicious new beginnings. You are burning with inspiration, ambition, and chomping at the bit to take off in a new direction. It’s all about balancing that rational, hyper-analytical part of you with your tender heart. Methodically planning and writing endless checklists won’t cut it. You’re going to have to feel it, baby.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Happy birthday, September Libras! Venus, your ruler, meets Jupiter in your sign at the beginning of the month, indicating a pleasant interlude - just watch that wallet, Libra! In the second week, Venus moves into Scorpio, which has the effect of drawing riches and trinkets toward you. You know you take to shiny objects like a magpie to tin foil, but try to resist the urge to acquire possessions simply for the joy of owning them. The Full Moon on September 18th heralds a resolution to a workplace or health issue. You’re longing for freedom right now; if you can resist the urge to act impulsively and instead plan carefully, you’ll succeed in getting out on that open road.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
You might feel like the first days of September are a bit like wading against a strong current. Your ruler Pluto and Mercury have just switched from retrograde to direct motion: use the first week of the month to inventory Pluto’s second house lessons (your talents, self-esteem and what you value) that came in during the April-to-August period of retrograde. What did you learned, Scorpio? By the 11th, your focus will have shifted to your 11th house, which means your friends, networking, self-promotion and long-term goals around money and career will be on your mind.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
September starts off with Venus and Jupiter convening in Libra, which casts a sweet, affectionate spell over all your meetings and your relationships with friends, acquaintances, and even colleagues. The New Moon at the beginning of the month allows for a fresh start where either your career or your public image is concerned, but by the second week Saturn combining with Pluto finds you frustrated by roadblocks. Your usual optimism may be challenged, but don’t give up hope, Sag. Matters should improve by the third week when your ruler Jupiter aspects Pluto, giving you the oomph you need to start making real changes.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
You’re the toast of the town, Capricorn! The meeting of Venus and Jupiter at the beginning of the month means your career, professional life, and/or public persona have never been held in such high regard. Ride this high into the second week of the month when a difficult aspect between your ruler Saturn and Pluto suggests a rough spot - you may feel unequipped to cope with the sudden pressure you find yourself under. Adapting to change isn’t your strong suit, but the Full Moon in Pisces will offer some relief. Keep your chin up. In the long run, your efforts will pay off.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Saturn’s transit of your sixth house has you focusing a lot these days on your goals and life direction. Even if the last few weeks have felt murky, don’t sweat it. The transformative power of the Sun, Mars and Jupiter in your eighth house of change will make those waters crystal clear, especially on the 14th and 15th of the month. Consider any pending possibilities carefully. You are a great catalyst for change, in your own life and in the lives of those around you, Water Bearer. Give the healing waters of the Gods to those who need it. The 24th and 25th are green light days, Aquarius, so take action.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Saturn transits through the later degrees of your house of creative self-expression this month, Pisces, and your creative energies are surging. You’re looking for just the right avenue for expression. Don’t rush, and never settle! Take your time to find what feels right for you, and the Universe will reward you. Saturn whispers in your ear to look within and find your muse. Communication is key this month, Pisces. Tie up any loose ends and clarify any unresolved matters with your partners. Feeling stuck in a social rut? Reach out to some new, stimulative, supportive, equally-spiritual friends who really get the real you.
