These horoscopes for September 2021 for each of the 12 zodiac signs are based on the upcoming astrological transits, (the movement of the planets around the sky), and some of the general themes that are going to be activated for you in the coming month. As a witch, I’ll be sharing some insight and inspiration on how you can most effectively nurture yourself and practice self-care this month based on the cosmos.
I highly recommend that you generate your birth chart at www.astro.com or www.astro-charts.com and read the horoscope for your rising sign but if you only know your sun sign, you can read for that too or instead. Please note that in order to generate a chart with an accurate rising sign, you will need your exact birth time, as even a few minutes can actually make a difference.
September 2021 Astrological Transits
- Virgo Season (August 22 – September 21): From late August to late September, the sun will be in Virgo, the sign of the Virgin and of discerning, clarifying energy. In ancient times, the word “virgin” meant someone who was unmarried and “whole unto themselves”, not necessarily a sexual virgin. Collectively, this season activates a desire to refresh our rituals and routines!
- Venus in Scorpio (Starting September 10): For the first week or so of September, Venus will be in her home sign of Libra, where she’ll be stirring up all kinds of luscious vibes and connections. But on September 10, she moves into Scorpio, the dark and mysterious sign of magick and witchcraft. This is the perfect time to embrace your sexy inner darkness!
- Full Moon in Pisces (September 20): Shortly before the autumn equinox, we’ll celebrate the full moon in Pisces, which is one of the most mystical and intuitive days of the year. Virgo and Pisces are natural opposites so where Virgo is grounded and practical, Pisces is transcendent and mystical!
September 2021 Horoscopes For Self Care (Sun & Rising!)
Aries Horoscope September 2021 – Sun & Rising
This month, you’re feeling called to focus on your day-to-day experiences. This is a great time to reflect on how you’re spending your time and where you’re investing your energy – and what kind of return you’re seeing on that investment. If it turns out you’ve been investing time and energy into routines, activities, and people who aren’t serving your highest good, then it may be time to re-evaluate them.
As Venus moves into Scorpio, the love goddess activates your shadow self. You may be feeling called to excavate deep shadows around your relationship to sex, death, the occult, and other taboos. This is a great opportunity for healing and for magick.
Finally, the full moon in Pisces will be asking you to go deep. This day may call for some deep rest and disconnecting from the world and from social media. It’s also likely to be a period of heightened intuition, when you may feel much more connected and in tune with your inner wisdom than you usually do. This will be a really good night to go to bed early – just be sure to record your dreams the next morning as they just might be prophetic!
Taurus Horoscope September 2021 – Sun & Rising
This month is all about fun, play, and creativity for you! If your rituals or daily routines have been feeling a little stuck or stagnant lately, shake them up by getting in touch with your inner child. Your inner child is that part of you that still knows how to run and play and be silly, even if adult-you tries to suppress those urges. Let them out this month and get creative with your day-to-day activities!
As Venus moves into Scorpio, the love goddess activates your own relationships. This is a very auspicious time for love and romance, but also for platonic or familial connections. You might find your love life getting fiery this month or having deep, meaningful conversations late into the night.
Finally, the full moon in Pisces will be asking you to get in community. You’re likely to find that the more time you spend with nurturing, engaging groups around this time, the more connected you’ll feel to your intuition and inner knowing. Maybe read some cards with friends or join a new wellness or witchy Facebook group!
Gemini Horoscope September 2021 – Sun & Rising
This month is all about rest and retreat for you. You’ve been going strong the past few months, but it’s time to take a little break and slow down. A solo retreat or staycation might be in order but however long you’re able to take, just be sure to make some extra time for yourself this month.
As Venus moves into Scorpio, the love goddess activates and brings a little magick to your day-to-day life. You might be feeling inspired, especially toward the end of the month, to make a spicy love connection with your partner in the middle of the day or on the kitchen counter… bringing some sexiness into your everyday.
Finally, the full moon in Pisces will be asking you to drop in and get very intuitive about your work and the way you’re showing up in the world. This is a good time to reflect on your current career and reputation and see how it feels and if it’s truly serving your highest good.
Cancer Horoscope September 2021 – Sun & Rising
This month is all about clear communications and getting detailed about what you need in order to feel nurtured, nourished, and fulfilled in your daily life, rituals, and routines.

This is also a good time to get super clear with your partner(s), housemates, friends, and family about the time, space, and support you need.

Finally, the full moon in Pisces will be asking you to get curious and to expand your mind, imagination, and horizons. You may be feeling called to spend some alone time out in nature, under the stars, or you might receive powerful, intuitive hits while driving down the freeway. Keep an open mind and heart and just see what opportunities drop in.
Leo Horoscope September 2021 – Sun & Rising
This month is all about receiving for you – pleasure, money, comfort, and abundance. Virgo season is shining a light on your physical reality so this is a good time to get right with your finances, gym membership, and to organize your spaces so they feel sacred, cozy, and relaxing before we fully head into fall.
As Venus moves into Scorpio, the love goddess activates your desire for cozy rest and privacy. You may feel called to withdraw somewhat and to stick close to home for a little while and that’s okay! This period of retreat will be replenishing to your soul.
Finally, the full moon in Pisces will be asking you to do some deep reflection and to face your shadow self, the part of you that you might sometimes try to hide away or ignore. Embrace the power of your intuition and show compassion to the parts of you that have felt unloved in the past.
Virgo Horoscope September 2021 – Sun & Rising
This is your month, Virgo! This month is all about YOU – exploring and loving up on yourself and identity. If you’ve felt like you were moving in slow-mo the past few months, get ready for momentum and motivation! You’re likely to be feeling super inspired to refresh your rituals and routines and to get organized in your day-to-day activities.
As Venus moves into Scorpio, the love goddess inspires you to share and talk about yourself, your shadows, and your desires. Get deep with your partner(s) or close friends or loved ones and open about what you truly want – in life, in love, in bed, and for the world.
Finally, the full moon in Pisces will be asking you to ask for help and support from those closest to you. Like Hermione, (definitely a Virgo), you might sometimes think you know best or have all the answers… but sometimes, we all need love and support from those around us!
Libra Horoscope September 2021 – Sun & Rising
This month is all about release for you, as you delve into your subconscious and allow whatever needs to be let go of to bubble up to the surface. Be gentle and compassionate with yourself this month, (as always, but especially so). Take it easy – you’ll be getting a dose of inspiration and momentum later in the month but for now, allow yourself to rest and receive support.
As Venus moves into Scorpio, the love goddess activates your pleasure centers. You may be feeling especially luscious and sensual during this period. Honor and connect with your body during this time with delicious and/or healthy foods, physical touch or getting a massage, and cozy, comforting spaces.
Finally, the full moon in Pisces will be asking you to bring more magick and mysticism into your every day life. Make it a daily ritual to check in with your intuition, record your dreams, or pull some tarot cards. Trusting your intuition will help you feel more magickal all the time!
Scorpio Horoscope September 2021 – Sun & Rising
This month is all about visualizing in crystal clear detail the future that you most desire. You may find yourself especially lit up intellectually during this time and inspired to share your visions and ideals with your community. Find safe, sacred spaces where you can do so – where you can share your vision of a new, more peaceful world.
As Venus moves into Scorpio, the love goddess activates your sense of self and identity. You’re likely to be feeling all kinds of juicy and in tune with your intuition, your body, and your biggest, most motivating ideas for the future. Trust your instincts and go with what feels good – even if it leads you towards the taboo.
Finally, the full moon in Pisces will be asking you to get a little bit playful – and not to take yourself too seriously. This will be a great time to tune into your intuition and ask your inner child what would make them feel really safe and nurtured. And then do it, even if it feels silly or weird!
Sagittarius Horoscope September 2021 – Sun & Rising
This month is all business for you, in a lot of ways. You’re being called to get crystal clear about your career, the work that you do, and how you are of service to society. Just remember that being of service to others doesn’t mean sacrificing yourself either!
As Venus moves into Scorpio, the love goddess activates your intuition and subconscious so you may be feeling extra tired or, alternatively, overwhelmed with intuitive hits and possible threads to follow. Either way, make space for some luxurious ritual baths, (pile on the bubbles and bath bombs), and take it easy on yourself. The more relaxed you are, the more the intuitive hits will make sense.
Finally, the full moon in Pisces will be asking you to remember to rest too. Although you’re probably feeling fired up to serve and put in the long hours right now, it’s important to preserve your inner strength so you don’t burn out. Especially at the full moon, take some time for rest and retreat this month too.
Capricorn Horoscope September 2021 – Sun & Rising
This month is all about inspiration, freedom, and pursuing the possibilities for you. You’re feeling inspired to learn and absorb wisdom from lots of different teachers and sources so that you can really make up your own mind, especially when it comes to the most productive and supportive daily rituals and routines.
As Venus moves into Scorpio, the love goddess activates your rebellious spirit. You’re feeling the desire to burn it all down and make your own rules. Though a bit of anarchy might reign in your love life this month, you’re also feeling really connected to your community and inspired to connect with like-minded individuals, whether it’s fellow murder podcast enthusiasts, business owners, or other burdgeoning witches.
Finally, the full moon in Pisces will be asking you to be more intuitive and compassionate in your communications. Your tendency is to be super direct and straightforward and that serves you well in many contexts but around the full moon, experiment with listening to your intuition versus your logical side.
Aquarius Horoscope September 2021 – Sun & Rising
This month is a season of deep self-reflection and shadow work for you. You may be feeling shadows like fear, anger, guilt, or shame coming up around being organized and punctual, around how you spend your time, your health and wellness, or being consistent with your habits and rituals. This is perfectly normal and okay – instead of pushing those feelings down, take the opportunity to examine them, show them some compassion, and to let go of some of that hurt.
As Venus moves into Scorpio, the love goddess activates your desire for structure and to contribute to society. You’re a rebel at heart and in many areas of your life; this is a great opportunity to bring a little of that rebellion to your work and career. How can you be your most authentic self, darkness, shadows, and all, in your most public spaces?
Finally, the full moon in Pisces will be asking you to practice intuitive eating and to really tune in and listen to your body. This is a powerful time to connect with your intuition by noticing where you receive hits and information in your body. For some people, it’s in their gut or in their heart. Notice where it is for you – possibly in your neck or throat!

This month is all about your relationships and intimate connections with those closest to you, including romantic, platonic, familial, and otherwise. You’re feeling called to listen and to seek others who help you create balance and harmony in your life.
As Venus moves into Scorpio in your September horoscope, the love goddess activates your natural curiosity and desire to learn and absorb wisdom, especially about spiritual and taboo topics like witchcraft, sex magick, and the occult.

Finally, the full moon in Pisces will be like a coming home for you. This is one of the most intuitive days of the year and you’ll likely to be feeling like an open channel for messages from your intuition, higher self, and the divine. This will be an excellent time to be recording your dreams and practicing with divination tools like tarot.
And for everyone, Mercury Retrograde is coming next month so get ready for that…
