Let's kick off the new month with a little love advice!
Welcome to YourTango's monthly love horoscope column from astrologer Ellen Whitehurst! Look up your sign to see what the month of September has in store for you in the romance department.
Aries (March 21 to April 20): This month's Full Moon in early September brings with it a wave of emotion, while the end of the month sees the Sun shift into Libra deepening all those feelings that have to do with your one-on-one relationships even more. This month, therefore, is very about appreciating all of your relationships – both personal and professional – and focusing more on YOU and self-love so you can attract more appreciation from others around you too. After September 26 it's Time (with a capital 'T') to put together a list of what you want in your love life for the next six months.
Taurus (April 21 to May 21): You have a magnetic quality this month that will bring suitors and sweethearts out of the proverbial woodwork. In fact your powers of attraction are running so high that every one around will want to play and have a month of fun with you! They say that variety is the spice of life so you better get ready to add some flavor to this zesty month. It's going to be yum!
Gemini (May 22 to June 21): Mercury the Messenger, Gemini's ruling planet, will be taking up real estate in Gemini's home of passion, love and eroticism this month bringing you romantic enthusiasm, sexual vigor and a tons of potential for stimulating and scintillating passion. And, if that weren't enough, in mid-September impulsive and spontaneous Mars will enter the mix making sure that your love life will not become even more colorful and sentimental too. You better get out those red sheets, because this September your ardor and all related interests are going to be on fire.
Cancer (June 22 to July 22): Intimate moments and personal incounters are going to be a bit more difficult to come by this month but that doesn’t mean that you won't be having a tryst or two that will up your optimism and increase your enthusiasm where your love life is concerned. It will be really good for you to share your intimate thoughts rather than keeping them to yourself especially if you desire that deeper level of commitment and bonding with that special someone in your life. If there is no significant other at the moment it would be a really good thing for you to take to time to reflect on why that is and then to take proactive steps to shift your energy – and your attitude. You might just be surprised then at how quickly your relationship status shifts.
Leo (July 23 to August 22): You are going to be busy, busy, busy this month, Leo, and might have to let your love life issues and agendas take a back seat to some other inspirational ideas that will ask you to take some time to strategize and figure out what the next steps will be in both increasing your bottom line and sharpening that new talent that you've only just recently discovered that you have. Both of these efforts will bring a bigger boost to your bottom line while also adding to a better sense of fiscal security too. In turn, that renewed sense of self-worth will then allow you to attract the right relationship for you – but it just might not be at this moment in time. Trust me, it will. Believe in what (or who) you want and it will manifest for you. You know what they say: "Ask, Believe, Receive." Go ahead and do all three and you'll see wonderful results.
Virgo (August 23 to September 22): You are going to be very visible this month and also be attracting ardor and appreciation from almost every one around you. Your sensual side is strong in September too and you might find that you can use the element of change to in order to add some additional snap, crackle and pop to the fireworks that the planets are promising. It will really pay off to get more personal with a lover or even just share your most intimate thoughts and feelings with a friend. Either way, your bonds will grow more deeply and committed now. Just a word of caution though, be honest, authentic and objective now in order to find a more fulfilling and satisfying life in the future.
Libra (September 23 to October 22): This will be a very strong month for smoothing over some conflicts and complications that you might have been dealing with last month. Although those same old issues of sharing could still be causing some consternation now is definitely not the time to make waves or to create/participate in drama either. Rather, this is a time to reevaluate and perhaps even change what is – and isn't- working for you so you can look into what will make your life and your relationships better in the future.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 22): You have a warm and endearing aura about you this month, exuding a certain sort of contagious happiness that attracts everyone around you. Your magnetism is almost mysterious and those aspects will only grow stronger and stronger as the month goes on. This positive momentum will serve to stimulate many aspects of your life – including your romantic endeavors as well. You have a growing chemistry with everyone but especially with that special someone who simply cannot resist these warm and wonderful qualities of yours. You will feel support from family and friends too as interest from others in making you feel satisfied and content is well deserved and very appreciated too. Make sure you continue to carry an attitude of gratitude for all of these great blessings to that you can receive more of same.
Sagittarius (November 23 to December 21): It appears as if everything is about to take off for you, including your love life. You are feeling a positive vibe not only in that aspect of your life but in many others too. You have worked hard to get to this place so you definitely deserve to sit back and enjoy it all. A word of advice: stay in contact with higher-ups and connections who can help you to climb even higher, because any decisions that you make now are not going unrecognized. In fact, you can even expect to see some recognition and rewards for many things – including your professional reputation. Just be sure to leave the office at the office so you enjoy all the lovely energies that your lovely love life will now bring to you.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 20): If ever there was a time to pack your bags and hit the high road, this would be it, Capricorn. You have an enthusiastic and even an exuberant appeal now and there just might be someone waiting in the wings who wants to share your ideals and your dreams – or can make them come true. If you take time to focus on the things that make you so special then everyone around will do that same thing too. Your immediate future holds some very special moments and mojo for you so if you've been boo-hoo-ing about what's gone on in the past, well, those days are done. As you change and redirect your attitudes you will find your life becoming more loving and optimistic too. And, as these new attitudes come to light, someone else might just brighten your days and nights as well. Hold tight, everything is about to change.
Aquarius (January 21 to February 19): There is a period of intimacy coming that will have a powerful hold on you this month. You are definitely in a place of emotional harmony even though the majority of your energy and efforts will have more to do with work and career – and even money – then a roiling love life in September. In fact, love might be a little more challenging now as you and some of your loved ones might seem as if you are on opposite sides of the Universe. Your challenge will be to build a bridge across your differences so that you can get back to a place of comfort, loyalty and love. If you can manage to do this then in short order your relationships will be even better than before with a powerful transformation bringing a death of sorts to thee negative energies while you embrace some new and wonderful ones.
Pisces (February 20 to March 20): Your attention will be much more directed to your love life now with romance, friendships and even social contacts all vying for your energy and time. If you've been putting any relationships on the back burner now is the time to let them heat up again since you will be so hot, hot, hot. Close ties with family and friends won't even come close to the new commitment that you have with your lover. That's why I'm going to strongly suggest that whenever you think about the two of you that you think in terms and "we" instead of them and me. This promises to be a seductive month where you will see much success in your personal life. The seasons are changing and so are your opportunities to enjoy, so, well, enjoy!
