Welcome to September, Capricorn. Last month asked you to open up and express your emotions to friends and partners. After all, they can't read your mind. Now, this month kicks off with a full moon in dreamy Pisces on Tuesday, September 1. You're known for being logical. Your rational mind does not often care for dreamy distractions, but this can sometimes limit you. During this lunation, draw a bath and take it easy. Pour yourself a glass of wine or make some tea. Open your mind to creative thinking. This psychic time can grace even the most skeptical Capricorn with a groundbreaking idea.
Warrior planet Mars goes retrograde from Wednesday, September 9 to Friday, November 13. Mars is all about action, a trait Capricorns admire. Whether it's a business deal, fundraiser, or a date night, you like things to move forward as planned. When Mars goes retrograde, all of that becomes more difficult. You may feel like you're walking through mud. This transit is also crucial to your growth when it comes to how you communicate with others and asks you to slow down and lean into the softer, more Venusian side of life. Buy a lover flowers. Stay home and masturbate to pretty music. Allow yourself to take your time on a creative project. All retrogrades are opportunities, we just have to step into them.
Capricorn loves nothing more than a power couple.
Thursday, September 17 brings a new moon in organized Virgo. Everyone goes on about how clean Virgo is, but it's also represented by the Hermit card in the tarot. Around this time, you may feel a bit messy and cluttered. Use this new moon to clean things up a bit, whether that means tidying up your actual place of living, engaging in meditation to clear your mind, or both.
Libra season begins on Tuesday, September 22. This is the sign of partnership, justice, and balance. Despite your sign's tendency to have a more serious nature, you also likely have a sexually adventurous side. Libra season is perfect to see what dating is like in a COVID-19 world — just use all the necessary safety precautions, of course. If you're already coupled, reignite any spark lost to stay-at-home orders and go lay around at a park, while wearing PPE and playing some of your favorite music.
Tuesday, September 22 is also the fall equinox, which is a perfect day to plan for the future. It's hard to predict what's going to happen next in these times, but you can continue to be kind and thoughtful to the people around you. And yes, you can date and engage in activism. Capricorn loves nothing more than a power couple. Try to connect with someone who shares your political beliefs, even if it's just platonically. Stay safe 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.
