How The Mercury Venus Trines Are Going To Set The Tone In Our Romantic Lives This
Love, Zodiac

On September 1st, we gear up for an action-packed first nine days of the month with two transits in astrology: Mercury trine Uranus, with Mercury in Virgo and Uranus in Taurus, and Venus trine Saturn, with Venus in Virgo and Saturn in Capricorn. Mercury trine Uranus is all about excitement, changes and intuition, while Venus trine Saturn will make us want to leap into the deep end of the love pool head-first.

These are just two aspects occurring on the first of September, and is a time where we see as much activity within the first nine days as we do all month. But these two come first and set the tone for all others.

For our zodiac signs, the energy this month will be hot, despite the cooling temperatures of approaching fall. But the specific energies will last all month, and the Mercury-Uranus themes will last until December when we, once again, see these two planets trine.

September is going to be an active month when we not only encounter a great deal of plot twists, but in which we have a lot of work to do. This is not a time when we get to sit passively by and let astrology have its way with us. No, this is a month of challenges, opportunities and certain situations aligning in such a way that we have no choice but to start believing in destiny.

The first transit, Mercury in Virgo trine Uranus in Taurus, really sets the tone by letting us know that we have no idea how things are going to play out, despite how certain we may want ourselves to believe we are. This aspect is indicating that there is change on the horizon, and it’s also fueled by our intuition of us just inherently knowing when something feels off or completely right.  

Mercury is the planet of communication, which means those great conversations we can’t seem to get enough of. Uranus is the planet of change and innovation, so when these two planets trine, which is a supportive alignment of approximately 120 degrees, it means that whatever conversations and change we do experience, will be positive.  

During this transit, we are more likely to have chance encounters with strangers, where maybe we make a friend for life, or even fall head over heels in love. Regardless of which it is, changes that occur around this time are in our best interests.

We are naturally more open thanks to Uranus, which means we are more apt to smile back, strike up a conversation or trust our hearts. And it’s this energy that will be with us for the month of September. Through all the other active astrology, we’re driven by change and the pull of our own souls.

The second aspect, Venus in Virgo trine Saturn in Capricorn, is an interesting addition to the Mercurian and Uranian energy we’re already going to be feeling. While to some they may seem contradictory — because while Uranus wants to run away with the circus, Saturn wants to buy a home and settle down — the two coming together means that maybe it’s time to start writing our own rules for love.

It feels like there is a shift occurring in how we think about relationships and commitment. We no longer are absolutely defining forever by a diamond and a white dress. Yet if we are, and it's something we still enjoy the tradition of, we’re aware that a wedding is only a starting point.

Venus and Mercury are both in Virgo, so there is that shared energy of being wellness-orientated and interested in planning for the future. In many ways, it's the perfect combination because we’re looking at love and healthy relationships. In Virgo, Venus likes to plan, which means we’re thinking about where our relationship is headed to, even if it’s someone we’ve just met; if it feels like we’ve known them forever, we’re more apt to act like that.  

Venus trine Saturn is all about commitment, both in our romantic lives and in other areas. So, while this energy will specifically be affecting our love lives all month, we also may find ourselves easily committing to plans and business ventures.

Sometimes we all get scared of commitment, not just in relationships but aspects of life, in general. We hesitate to take the new job because what if it’s not as good? We don’t book the vacation because what if something comes up? What if we never leave our comfort zone?

Well, this is when we all get to September, the month when quite literally we’re going to be shaken, pulled and rattled from whatever comfort zone we’ve previously been holding onto. These next few weeks are going to drastically change our life path.

Think it sounds overly dramatic? Think again. With so much strong astrology moving from one transit to another, sometimes two occurring on the same day, it means we’re going to think more rapidly and trust our first instinct. That is the one that’s going to lead us where we’re meant to be.

Relationships will be the main focus this month and will likely cause the biggest moments of shock — sudden proposals, love at first sight, and even the one that got away coming back. It’s all up for grabs.

But it’s important to remember that if you suddenly get an offer that needs your signature on the dotted line, don’t hesitate. Not every opportunity comes around again.

Sometimes we really do have to open ourselves up to the universe and trust that whatever is brought our way is meant for us. If we want life to be magical, it's up to us to create it.
