Spring is here, it’s a time of renewal, warmth and new life as we leave the grind of a long, cold winter behind. The Sun is in Virgo, sign of the Goddess, putting the emphasis on style, wit and coolth until the 23rd when Libra takes centre stage.

The month opens with a full moon in Pisces on the 2nd.  It’s a time of heightened emotional sensitivity, enabling insight and resolution to an emotional standoff. Beware of anyone playing the martyr or victim – be clear about your own motives and don’t buy into any BS. Art therapy is a great method of expressing pent-up feelings.

In the office

The first week of September is perfect for getting through any backlog at work. Virgo Sun, supported by Mercury, likes to put plans into practice, and Mars in Aries supports forward momentum until the 10th when it moves retrograde. If you’ve done your research, and laid the groundwork, then it’s easy to persuade others to jump on board with your projects. Be clear, be concise, and be grounded. Oh, and of course, dress for success. 

The age of Aquarius

Once Mars moves into backward motion, take care of stress and don’t let frustration build up. Running, boxing and martial arts are excellent for release and for building stamina. And we will need all the stick-to-it we can handle, as it’s going to be a tough slog until the end of the year when some outer planets shift from Capricorn (old way) to Aquarius – heralding the new age. Yes, it has been dawning since the ’60s, but cosmic eras take time to manifest.

Set your new Moon intentions on the 17th to take advantage of the final Virgo week – practical is perfect, but perfectionism is limiting in the long run. Do some earthing: get your bare feet on the Earth to attune to the energy flow. 

Love, actually...

On the romance and relationships front there is a definite boost with Venus in Leo, bringing some much-needed warmth and excitement. Generous gestures and a fun-filled weekend away will fit the Venusian vibe. Creative endeavours are favoured, especially performance, to make the most of the luscious leonine energies. 

Happy birthday, Virgo

Grounded is the key word for Virgo. Enjoy your birthday celebrations, but make sure you are taking care of your physical and mental health with some time in nature. This helps get you out of your head and into the flow of abundance, the gift of the Goddess. Seeds (new ideas) well planted now will bear fruit in time.

Next month

For Librans, once the Sun moves into your sign on the 23rd there may be some tension in close relationships. If you are copping criticism, before acting on it, make sure you are happy with how you are living your life and not changing to please someone else. Be clear about who you are and what you want, and happy birthday to the new you.

Enjoy the spring sunshine, stellar blessings,
