The month opens somewhat awkwardly with Leo Mercury square your Sun in retrograde. During this first week, keep grand gestures and displays of bravado to a minimum, as you’ll only come off as a buffoon. Nevertheless, you can begin to relax once Mercury makes a move for its ruler Virgo on September 10th, and the Sun in Virgo sextiles your own from the 1st to the 22nd. Now you can begin to apply that penetrating Scorpio energy to get to the heart of things and clear away all the fluff. The Full Pisces Moon on September 6th trines your Sun, marking an important time for proactive and creative reflection. Your subconscious is awake and blinking sweetly at you from its cave. Use this time to, for example, stay home and work on a piece of music, make a lover feel special one-on-one, or go for a prolonged woodland night hike by yourself. The Virgo Mars sextile (September 6-30) is excellent for late October and early November Scorpios who have a lot they’d like to accomplish. This energy is best for fine-tuning, organizing, critically examining, and organizing far more than it is for anything else. When Venus enters Virgo and sextiles your Sun (September 20-30), you’ll find that you can take a clearer look at love. It wouldn’t hurt to make some “Pro” and “Con” columns, as long as you stop short of overanalyzing. Alternatively, you may find yourself able to assess aesthetics or creative projects with more precision. The waxing crescent Moon in Scorpio from September 23-25 is especially wonderful for the above, given its framing within the Venus sextile. In particular for early November Scorpios, the trine with Pisces Neptune makes you more sensitive and idealistic, but the retrograde could turn this energy indulgent if left untempered. A sextile with retrograde Pluto in Capricorn marks a good time for unusual methods of purging and reinvention.
