Your September 2020 Monthly Horoscope
Reveal what's in store for your zodiac sign this month!
The month opens with a Full Moon in whimsical Pisces on September 2, encouraging everyone to surrender to their dreams and have more faith. Compassion rules and it's possible to give and receive incredible kindness from others now.
On September 6, Venus moves into Leo and everyone will enjoy an opening of the heart space. Warmth, generosity, and pleasure all become main areas of focus. Greater joy is found by spending time with children or with a romantic partner.
When Mars turns retrograde on September 9, however, life will become more frustrating. Mars will retrograde in his home sign of Aries through November 13, essentially pressing the pause button on anything you're trying to pursue. If you find yourself feeling angry in the days surrounding the retrograde transition, do your best to accept the situation and lean into the cosmic timeout that is being forced upon you. Trust that it's all happening for a reason. This will prove to be a valuable time where you get to slow down and re-evaluate your goals and what you're spending your energy on. A course correction is needed.
Thankfully, a New Moon in Virgo on September 17 can help you implement a positive new health habit. You might also find ways to improve your efficiency and productivity at work. Put special effort into doing your best.

Aries Monthly Horoscope
Aries dates: March 21 - April 19
This might not feel like the easiest month for you, Aries. You are not someone who takes kindly to anyone who tells you to sit in a corner and not move. You are fire and action and passion and, most of all, you are someone who makes things happen. So, on September 9, when your ruling planet, Mars, turns retrograde in your sign, it might feel like your world no longer makes sense. Suddenly, the harder you push, the more resistance you'll feel. As the month goes on, you might even find yourself losing all of that signature ambition you are known for. However, you should look at this as a vital process you need to go through so that you can reassess whether or not something (or someone) is worth all of your effort and energy. After Mars turns direct on November 13, you'll get your spark back and your fire will burn for what you realize truly means the most for you.
Your love life is not free from the effects of Mars Retrograde, either. When it comes to romance, the less you push, the more you'll get now. Ease up and let the magic happen.
Key themes for Aries: respite, hibernation, lackluster, work, health, job, romance, love, frustration
Taurus Monthly Horoscope
Taurus dates: April 20 - May 20
You might feel lazier than usual this month. Or, you could feel like you're ready to give up completely on a goal you've been trying to achieve for so long without any reward. As Mars turns retrograde on September 9, it'll be time to quietly re-evaluate whether or not your current pursuits are still worth the effort. This includes your love life if you've been after someone who just is not meeting you halfway.
Fortunately, new life will open up in matters of the heart after the New Moon on September 17. Landing in your romance sector, this lunation can bring singles a real chance at love. If you're dating someone already, then you'll notice he or she is finally putting in the work to deserve your heart.
As you'll invariably want to spend more time lounging around at home, it's nice to know that Venus moving into your 4th House of Domestic Matters on September 6 will support harmony between you and relatives. You'll truly feel like home is where your heart is.
Key themes for Taurus: lethargic, lazy, tired, romance, new love, domestic pleasure, decorating, home business
Gemini Monthly Horoscope
Gemini dates: May 21 - June 20
When it comes to your social life, this month you are not going to be in the mood. On September 9, Mars will turn retrograde in your 11th House of Friends and Groups, making you less motivated to connect with others; you're tired of being the one who is always putting in the effort to maintain a friendship. So, you're going to pull back and see who starts showing you effort for a change.
A Full Moon at the top of your chart on September 2 might put you in the spotlight for a career achievement. Then, the New Moon on the 17th in your home and family sector could signal a change in your living space or news from a relative.
When it comes to your love life, starting September 6, communicating from your heart will be much easier. If you're dating someone, you can expect plenty of conversations late into the night. You're thinking about someone you love much more this month -- that's for sure. Fortunately, they will be happy thoughts.
Key themes for Gemini: social drama, frenemies, promotion, honor, moving, family, romantic conversations, neighborhood romance
Cancer Monthly Horoscope
Cancer dates: June 21 - July 22
Don't be surprised if you're losing your professional ambition this month. On September 9, Mars will begin its retrograde at the top of your chart and remain in hibernation through November 13. You might not have the stamina to successfully pull off any new career endeavors during this time, and your current professional world might feel less than exciting. You might even feel a sense of anti-climactic disappointment if you've achieved a major career goal recently. It's a feeling of, “Great, now what?” that you're not sure what to do with. The climb to the top seemed to have been more fulfilling than where you are now and, if that is the case, it might be time to re-evaluate your career goals altogether.
Your love life might also suffer during Mars Retrograde. Since Mars is the traditional ruler of your romance sector, it's probably not a good idea to begin a sexual relationship with anyone new you start dating during the retrograde. If, however, you are already with someone, there shouldn't be any serious problems in the bedroom.
Key themes for Cancer: stale career, professional disappointment, failure, frustration, unsexy, listless, lost ambition, no mojo
Leo Monthly Horoscope
Leo dates: July 23 - August 22
With Venus moving into Leo on September 6, you'll be in your glory. Well, at least you'll look the part.

Your energy will be so captivating that you're sure to find plenty of opportunity for romance. If you're already in a relationship, then your sweetheart will make sure you feel extra special all month long.
Mars turning retrograde on September 9 might leave you with zero motivation to continue with an educational goal you once set for yourself. Perhaps you no longer see the point in pursuing this endeavor, or you feel that it's just no longer worth the effort. Re-evaluate.

Virgo Monthly Horoscope
Virgo dates: August 23 - September 22
A Full Moon in your partnership sector on September 2 might bring either fulfillment or an ending to a relationship. If you're OK with surrendering to love, then you're likely to find yourself swept away by currents of romance. If, however, you're not interested in fairy tales, you might grow tired of feeling like you always need to be the responsible one in your relationship. Fortunately, with Venus moving into your 12th House of Healing on September 6, if there are any problems in your love life, it's possible to work through them in couple's counseling.
In fact, by the New Moon on September 17, happening in your sign, you'll be ready for a bright new start in life (and possibly love). You're ready to work on yourself and, because your focus is self-development and improvement, you'll realize that a partner must be willing to grow and meet you where you are. You won't settle for anything less.

Until November 13, you'll be examining the energy you've been devoting to your love life and whether or not it has been misdirected. If your partner can't match your efforts, you might decide to walk away.

Scorpio Monthly Horoscope
Scorpio dates: October 23 - November 21
Romantic fulfillment is possible near the Full Moon on September 2, if you've been dating someone you feel inspires you. It's also possible, however, that you and a partner will realize that you have a very different approach to life; one of you is realistic and other is more of a dreamer. If you can't meet in the middle, you might lose all faith in the love connection and just call it quits.
In other news, your career will have interesting developments this month. You may enjoy a boost in praise and attention from your boss or another VIP after September 6 when Venus moves to the top of your chart. You've got a brilliant opportunity now to be seen and rewarded for your talents, so be sure to showcase the very best of them. At the same time, however, Mars will turn retrograde in your work sector on September 9, and you might feel like you've got no help on the job.

What gets really interesting -- and potentially messy -- this month is your love life. If you're completely single, you'll want to be careful about starting a new sexual relationship with a brand-new partner. From September 9 - November 13, Mars will retrograde in your romance sector. At first, you'll be convinced sparks are flying between you and someone special. Once Mars regulates his orbit, however, you'll realize that the connection wasn't that great after all. If you're already in a relationship, you and your partner might not be in the mood as much. But if you're free to reconnect with an old sexual partner, it looks like sparks will fly!
Key themes for Sagittarius: family trouble, moving, promotion, career change, unsexy, low libido, sex drive, ex-lover

Until November 13, a home construction project might be delayed or you could have problems with contractors.
