Welcome to September, Cancer. At the end of August, you found yourself thinking romantically. You naturally crave human connection, and you can have it, even during a pandemic. This month, take steps to make it happen — just be extra cautious, take proper preparations, and be ready to communicate. You are a caring sign, so this is in your wheelhouse.
On Tuesday, September 1, there is a full moon in fellow water sign Pisces that will have you feeling both sexy and philosophical. This is an ideal time to express your feelings to your partner or crush. If you can do so safely, take a walk in the moonlight.
Use Mars retrograde to deepen emotional intimacy.
Warrior planet Mars goes retrograde in its home sign of Aries from Wednesday, September 9, to Friday, November 13. Mars rules traditionally masculine qualities (though any gender can express them) such as sexuality, aggression, and anger. Romantically, this means that lovemaking becomes more appealing than rough sex. You don't have to stop getting kinky, but use this time to deepen emotional intimacy. You are good at making your partner feel cared for, Cancer. Just remember to also take care of your emotional needs during this time.
There's a new moon in efficient Virgo on Thursday, September 17. You are known for caring about your community, which extends beyond your immediate family. No matter what you're currently fighting for, Virgo helps you hone in on what needs to happen to move forward. Due to Mars retrograde, this is already a good time for planning for the future.
Circle Tuesday, September 22 in your calendar. This date marks both the fall equinox and the start of Libra season. Celebrating the fall equinox is all about preparing for the winter and getting your ducks in a row. It used to mean stocking up for food, but in modern times, it's more about organizing behind the scenes to take action with a solid plan in place. Take care of yourself, Cancer, and see you in October.

We know many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now. Although the stars don't have answers to the multitude of questions running through all of our minds, astrology may at least provide some comfort during times of uncertainty. We urge you to donate to one or all of these organizations if you're able to; if you can't, we created a guide to ways you can support the BLM movement other than financially.
