The square to retrograde Leo Mercury may make you feel a bit overwhelmed or tongue-tied for the first four days of this month. You may feel as though what you’re trying to express is coming off too clumsily, as though you’ve been given a club instead of a nice number 2 pencil. Things ease up once the planet goes direct on the 5th, however, and once Mercury enters rulership with Virgo, you can finally relax and think clearly again. From the 10th to the 29th, you’ll find that seeing reason---and perhaps, helping others to see it too-- is more effective than usual. Because of the Virgo Sun’s trine with yours from the 1st to the 22nd, you should cut any losses from previous months and instead revel in the successes of the present. The theme of this month is conscious preparedness-- get your ducks in a row now and force yourself to be ready even if you don’t feel that way. The trine with Virgo Mars (September 6-30) will increase your agency and efficacy, especially when it comes to assessing the tiny machinery in any situation. The waning gibbous Moon in Taurus on September 10 and 11 is a good time for completion of something that feels overblown or overdue, while the New Virgo Moon on September 19th is an excellent time to begin a work project or square away a nagging mundanity, particularly if you were born in late May. The Virgo Venus trine increases your charms, but subtly--- people will be drawn to the earthbound security and practicality you present, and a zany fireworks display isn’t really necessary or even effective here. The sextile with retrograde Neptune in Pisces puts you in touch with your imagination, but only if you work for it a little. Retrograde Pluto in Capricorn trines your Sun, granting you easy passage into bigger, more transformative life changes than you’ve previously tackled. They may not be comfortable or even ordinary by any standards, but they will be necessary.

Fire signs can create hot steam this month; you need more of what you've already got to stay grounded.
