Cancers will escape the full effect of Mercury retrograde in Leo as it slows down and enters direct motion. Instead, you can enjoy a sextile with Virgo Sun (September 1-22), bringing your aspects of your seemingly chaotic life into clear focus. If you were feeling a little sidetracked from the things that make you feel like yourself, now is the time to prioritize them once more. The Full Pisces Moon on the 6th is the first step to reconnecting with yourself, at least on an emotional level. This would be a wonderful time to do something that’s both creative and personal, such as writing a song. You can also use this time to be emotionally available to a close friend or romantic partner---but only if you reap the benefits of quiet one-on-one time. This is a reflective Moon that doesn’t require you to leave the house if you don’t want to. The 6th also begins a period of newfound resolve and energy (Virgo Mars sextile, September 6-30). It’s a good time to be active or start a physical routine--- the movement will help you get out of your head a little. A few days later, Virgo Mercury enters into sextile as well, making you more alert and constructive in your criticisms. Try and communicate what you know is important for someone to hear, or take a productive short trip that goes beyond just leisure. On the 14th and 15th, the waning crescent Moon is in Cancer. With the positive overlap from Mars and Mercury, this is a fruitful period for laying out big plans. On the 20th, Virgo Venus sextiles your Sun as well; in this case, you’ll be able to make a good impression on others or strengthen the bonds of friendship. The Sun-Libra Sun and Sun-Libra Jupiter squares comes into play together on September 23rd, when you’ll be forced to confront parts of yourself that were giving you trouble. Alternatively, you may find some people seemingly working at cross purposes with you. Avoid indulgent behavior and try to keep yourself disciplined. The square with retrograde Aries Uranus will make some surprises seem abrupt and abrasive, whereas the opposition with retrograde Capricorn Pluto will make you feel as though everything in your life is being torn down and cleared away without your consent. Combat disruptions with creative growth and opportunities for healing, using the energy from the trine with retrograde Pisces Neptune.

There's very little water in the heavens for you this month-- offset it with a cupful.
