Your September 2020 horoscopes are published with companion Cosmic Playlists that I curate for Spotify. They feature many new up-and-coming artists, that I hope you will love, follow, and stan.
If you know both your rising sign and sun sign, please read and listen to both horoscopes and playlists! Take what works for you, leave the rest.
Aries & Aries Rising
September reminds you not all battles are yours to fight.
September reminds you that not all battles are yours to fight. Save yourself. Save your energy. Save your strength, as you’ll need every ounce of it. You are up against some formidable professional challenges, but remember that while the circumstances can’t change in an instant, your relationship to the stress they cause can. You can’t get everything done all at once. You can’t please everyone all of the time. You can’t know just how important it is to stay in your integrity at this moment, but trust that your future success depends on it. The more you can stay present, and make one small move that you are proud of at a time, the more energy you reclaim for yourself. Keep feeding the positive feedback loops in your life.
Taurus & Taurus Rising
Help the small joys of your life flourish.
Follow your gut. Follow your intuition. Follow all the facts that you can collect. The relationship that you build to your inner life will help you map out a successful outer one over the next couple of months. Living your life in ways that make you look good, but not necessarily feel good, will only feed despair. Finding ways to help the small joys of your life flourish will feed an inner prosperity that nothing can diminish. This is a battle we all have to wage with ourselves. The ability to withstand peer pressure, no matter how grown we are, is a timeless pursuit. Knowing which goals will give you the greatest satisfaction to not only achieve, but to pursue, is a cornerstone to winning at the game of life.
Gemini & Gemini Rising
We are ridiculous, beautiful creatures.
Friendships may come and go, but the lessons we learn from them last a lifetime if you are willing to be taught by them. Friends fill in where families cannot. They help us mend in places we didn’t know had been broken. But we humans are complicated, our emotional reactions are mysterious, and we are often fumbling towards failure with one another more often than not. But that is the point. Find people that you can be your full self with; folks that are wiser than you in some ways, messier than you in others, and always willing to laugh at the disparity between the polarities in them and you. We are ridiculous, beautiful creatures that thankfully have each other to behold.
Cancer & Cancer Rising
September reminds you that soap operas are for the screen.
Your career probably couldn’t be any more high stakes than it is at this moment. Because the next couple of months keep the pressure on, it’s important to trim your schedule down to the essential tasks. Don’t let yourself get distracted by projects you don’t really care about, guilt trips that lead to nowhere, or doubts that take over your time. Don’t leave the game before you have the chance to cash in. Stay until the fortune fairies can find you, no matter how delayed they may be. As long as you are in it to win it for reasons that can stand the test of time, it will be worth the toil and trouble.
Leo & Leo Rising
September has you wowing with effortless charm.
September brings all kinds of challenges for us all to face, but it offers you the gift of doing so while wowing everyone around you. You of all people know how to make the most of a little effortless charm and a couple of extra good hair days. Collectively, we are going to need all the levity we can get, so please, be liberal with your inner class clown and generous with your jokes—you will also need a dose of humor. With a tremendous amount due come the end of the month, do yourself a favor and clear your calendars as much as possible, knowing that any “extra time” is just a placeholder for the time you most likely miscalculated. And if not, it’s a little extra beauty rest you don’t have to plan.
Virgo & Virgo Rising
Frequent the playrooms that act like a release valve.
The more willing you are to use discomfort as a portal, the more you’ll be able to channel your creative energy this month. Being afraid of any specific emotional state makes it all the more possible we will prolong it. What’s more pressing than how you feel about something is what you are able to glean from it. Sometimes the only way to make sense of what comes up for us is to express it in some way, shape or form. Help yourself out by staying in the studio a little longer, visiting the workshop more often, and frequenting the playrooms that act like a release valve. Your creative projects have extra weight to them now, but if you don’t make way for a little levity, they will only become a drag.
Libra & Libra Rising
Fear is rarely worthy of the energy we give it.
The conversations that you have this month will help you to define what kinds of conflicts you are afraid of, why you are afraid of them, and how to disavow yourself of being so when unnecessary. Fear is a fact of life, but rarely is it worthy of the energy we give it. The more willing you are to be corrected, the less likely you’ll be held hostage by the fear of being wrong. The more readily you appeal to someone’s humanity, the more opportunity you give them to show up with it intact. Whether they take you up on the offer or not is not your business, but offering it up teaches them and anyone watching how you want to be treated in turn.
Scorpio & Scorpio Rising
Fill up where and when bounty befalls you.
September sees you sitting pretty. With an extra boost of beauty in your professional life, you know how to make a deal, form a bond, and bring home the bacon, eggs, and butter. Fill up where the bounty befalls you, as there is plenty of work to do that won’t be so easy to get done. In fact, while the world might only see your success, you know the labor that goes into every win. Every loss costs even if it supplies you with experience that is priceless. You know better than to focus on what feels unsupportive, but there are a couple of days near the end of the month that threaten to run you ragged. Saying no when necessary can save you many sorrows. Right now it’s easier to add back in rather than subtract once you’ve said yes, so be sparing with what you add to your daily grind.
Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising
You have faith to spare, so have some in yourself.
People from far and wide want to connect with you. What you communicate gets good reception even if you can’t be there in person, but your creative projects give you a run for your money. Whether you are wondering how and if they can support you, or whether they are worth the time, energy, effort, and resources they are consuming, remember to pour a little extra honey on your long-term plans for them. Nothing flourishes without love. Nothing grows faster when you are bent over it in criticism. No one will support what you fail to recognize as potentially perfect. You don’t have to know how it will all work; you just have to be in support of its process instead of interrupting it. You have faith to spare, so have some in yourself.
Capricorn & Capricorn Rising
You get the chance to know yourself in a new way.
Feeling proud of yourself is an inside job. Building a foundation that is sturdy enough to hold the life of your dreams takes an unrelenting commitment to being honest. If your relationships, career, or creative projects don’t have space for all of you, in time, they won’t support much of you at all. As you spend the next couple of months investigating what part of your home life, family life, and inner life you need to review, rework, or develop a relationship to, you get the chance to know yourself in a new way. Wanting the world to make room for us is common, but making room for ourselves is often the first move in making it happen.
Aquarius & Aquarius Rising
Don’t try to figure it all out on the fly.
For the record, write it down. Don’t try to keep it all in your head. Don’t try to figure it all out on the fly. What you can plan needs to be on the calendar; what you can’t will come when it wants to. These are not the days for guessing your schedule, assuming someone understood what you meant, or that they weren’t offended by a careless comment. These are days to be extra deliberate. You don’t have to manage other people’s feelings, but you do need to make it your business to be thorough. Loves and potential partners flock to your side when the going gets tough, so remember to keep them abreast of what you need and when you need and want it.
Pisces & Pisces Rising
An economy of energy needs to be applied.
Your resources are precious. Be they time, energy, talent, or material in nature, what you have is to be worked with in the most mindful of ways over the next couple of months. Dole out your offerings like they mean something. Receive compensation offered like it’s a well-deserved blessing. Reward yourself with joys that keep your heart and your pockets full. There is no time to waste. An economy of energy needs to be applied. Spend yours on the group projects that feel like they have the right kind of friction. You need a little to ignite the creative spark, but too much might have everything in flames. Finding the right partnerships takes discernment and fait
