Your September 2021 Horoscope

What’s in store for you in September? Gritty Pretty’s resident astrologer Emma Vidgen reveals all…

ARIES 

Virgo season (until 23 September) is all about refinement, and for Aries folks that energy is especially focussed on looking after yourself. If the anxiety of this year has caused some unhealthy coping mechanisms to creep into your routine, firstly…you’re not alone. Secondly, this month is offering you special support to get back on track—without judgement. Gently reflect on what your body and mind need to manage the big-time stress that is just being a human right now, then make a pact to stick to it. The new moon (7 September) is ideal for setting a new goal for the long haul.

Tip: Make small changes to help support your mental health

 

TAURUS

Life has felt decidedly serious for Taureans recently, but this month the stars are inviting you to lighten up. While the stressors of the world aren’t going anywhere they should feel a bit less imminent. Give yourself a break by exploring a long-forgotten passion. What’s that one thing that always made you feel better when you were a kid? Dust off your ballet shoes, drag the easel out or tee up a Hannah Montana marathon (no judgement). If you do nothing else, give yourself permission this month to practice random acts of kindness… just for you.

Tip: Reconnect with a childhood passion

 

GEMINI

Things are still tense on a macro level this month, but the immediate stress should be a bit more manageable. Build on the work you did at home last month and review your space with fresh eyes. What can you do to make your home feel healthier? Maybe it’s essential oils, maybe it’s more greenery, maybe it’s replacing your cookware with low-tox alternatives. Virgo energy loves an audit, so think about what you could tweak – both spatially and on an emotional level – to improve the vibe. Keep your changes small and consistent for max results and regroup at the end of Virgo season (23 September) to assess the impact. 

Tip: Boost your wellbeing with Feng Shui

 

CANCER  

Coming back to your body and putting your health (especially your mental health) is essential this Virgo season (until 23 September). If the grind of headlines is starting to take a toll, give yourself permission to step away from the news. Focusing on what you can control, starting with your body, is the best way to work with the energy. Treat yourself to an Audible account or get lost in a book to support your wellbeing (try: Breath by James Nestor). If you’re feeling inspired by what you read, the new moon (7 September) is especially potent for establishing a new habit that sticks.

Tip: Take a break from the news cycle

LEO 

Regaining a sense of order amid the stress that is 2021 will help manage anxiety levels  in September. With Virgo season (until 23 September) highlighting your relationship with cash, it’s the perfect time to do a little spring clean on your finances. Tackle a jumble of receipts, book in your tax return or consolidate your credit cards. Virgo energy is all about making small changes to get big results. The satisfaction you’ll feel ticking off life admin will go a long way to help you feel a sense of achievement amid the craziness that is this year.

Tip: Take control of cash to help manage stress

 

VIRGO 

Like slipping into clean sheets or that delicious sense of accomplishment that comes after cleaning your makeup brushes, this month offers plenty of opportunities for simple pleasures. The larger story of 2021 hasn’t changed but your ability to roll with the waves has. Concentrating on little lifestyle tweaks that make you feel 100 per cent better, is the best medicine this Virgo season (23 September). Go back to basics – whole foods, daily movement, time in nature (if your situation allows). Getting grounded and prioritising your wellbeing is one thing you can control, so make it your monthly mission. 

Tip: Make whole foods and fresh air a part of your daily ritual

 

LIBRA 

As Virgo season (23 September) pulls focus on our relationship to self-care, it’s an especially important time for Librans to explore their relationship with rest. It may sound crazy given all the hours we’re spending at home, but it is possible to feel exhausted from doing nothing. Check in with yourself often, take time to reflect on how you’re really coping and give yourself permission to do whatever you need to, to refill your cup. It’s the sweetest month of the year for Librans to establish (or deepen) a meditation practice too, so jump on Insight Timer and commit to some mindful minutes every day.

Tip: Take a 28-day meditation challenge

 

SCORPIO 

The tensions continue to soften this month for Scorps (TF!) as the skies invite you to focus on coming back to your body. The stress of the past couple of months has likely taken its toll so, this month, make wellness your top priority. There’s focus and motivation to get yourself back on track, and with the sun emphasising the importance of friends, it’s an excellent time to start a new routine with a mate. The new moon (7 September) is especially good for turning over a new leaf, so set a goal with a friend – even if it’s virtual – and lock it in.

Tip: Set a wellness goal with a friend to stay accountable

 

SAGITTARIUS

Your career sector has been running hot recently and the good vibes continue this month. As tempting as it is to take on more, Virgo season (until 23 September) asks you to refine your workday. What could be gained by letting go of a few things? What can you delegate? What’s outstayed its use-by date? Remember, working smarter is not the same as working harder. If your wellbeing isn’t A1, you won’t be able to keep up the cracking pace you’ve set professionally. Make little tweaks to create space for the stuff that actually matters to you—both on and off the job.

Tip: Give your work life a wellness makeover

 

CAPRICORN 

This month is all about recharging your batteries and looking after your health—both physically and spiritually. While the worries of the world aren’t going anywhere, there’s a grounded practicality and focus that will feel kind of relaxing. Take your mind off the bigger stressors of this year by broadening your horizons through literature and/or virtual experiences. Let your inner researcher loose exploring a self-care topic that’s always intrigued you or lose yourself in a spiritual tome like Autobiography of A Yogi. Not a reader? Sign on for a virtual retreat with your favourite OS spa (Chiva Som and Revivo have some great options).

Tip: Scratch your travel itch with a virtual wellness retreat

 

AQUARIUS

Virgo season (until 23 September) acts as a cosmic reminder to quit future-tripping and focus on what’s right here, right now. Not always easy for Aquarians, but looking after you and asking for help where you need it is the priority this month. Somatic therapies (like breathwork, yoga and acupressure) could be a great way to help heal an overstimulated nervous system. Trust that you’re not letting the team down by investing in self-care. There’s more energy coming your way in Libra season (23 September onwards) so give yourself permission to rest while you can.

Tip: Explore somatic therapies for deep healing

 

PISCES

The intensity of the past couple of months (or, is it too soon to say, years?) shouldn’t be underestimated, and your propensity to help everyone around you before yourself means your own self-care may have taken a hit. Virgo season (until 23 September) is the time to check in. How are you doing, like really doing? Get back on track by starting a health kick (the new moon on 7 September is especially good for starting something new) with your favourite person. Best friend, boyfriend, partner—make self-care a group project and focus on the little changes you can make to improve your daily routine.

Tip: Embark on a health kick with your favourite person

 

Hot tip: try reading these horoscopes for your rising sign as well as your sun sign. You can check the Co-Star app or have your charts read by an astrologist to see what your rising sign is.
