In astrology, we track each celestial body’s distinctive orbit. It takes the Moon—a symbol of our emotions—28 days to complete its journey, taskmaster Saturn 29 years to move across the zodiac cycle, and the radiant Sun 365 days to complete a full rotation of the zodiac. Every year, when the Sun in the sky aligns with the exact point it was at your moment of birth, we celebrate our solar return.

Right now, the Sun is gliding across the Virgo sky—so happy birthday, baby! This is YOUR season. The Sun’s warm rays and helping you feel renewed and inspired, so reflect on what you’d like to manifest in this next year ahead. Whether you’re setting intentions for work, love, money, or all of the above, the Full Moon in Pisces (your opposite sign) on September 14 will help you identify your next steps. Full Moons shine light on everything: The good, the bad, and the ugly. Sure, you may need to accept that some areas of your life need retooling. It may not be easy to face the truth, but knowledge is power. Honest awareness of your circumstances is only ever to your advantage.

Beginning in late April, Saturn—the strict outer-planet associated with rules and responsibilities—has been spinning backwards in the area of your chart associated with creativity and romance. Simply put, Virgo love, Saturn’s backwards glide hasn’t been making things easy. Whether you’re suffering from writer’s block or a dry streak, your luck is about to change on September 18, when Saturn finally goes direct. You’ll feel this well-deserved (and badly-needed) energetic shift almost instantly, so be sure to clear your calendar. Inspiration and romance will falling directly on your lap!

Alas, just when Virgo season starts heating up, the Sun quietly shifts into a new astrological sign. Libra season begins on September 23, marking the official end of your birthday. But don’t worry, the party’s just getting started! Over the next few weeks, Libra energy will activate the area of your chart associated with personal finances, which means exciting new money-making opportunities are just around the corner. Everyone can always use a little extra cash, so consider which areas of your life would benefit the most from additional financial padding. Whether you’ve been trying to bulk up your savings account or (*ahem*) invest in a new handbag, you’ll be sure to enjoy this financial flow.

Of course, money is also quite emotional, and the New Moon on September 28 will remind you that your values aren’t always quantifiable. What matters to you, Virgo darling? What are the issues that really speak to your soul? New Moons mark the beginning of new cycles, so under this dark sky, reflect on your non-physical resources, as well. This is an excellent evening for a New Moon ritual, so don’t be afraid to get together with a bunch of your witchiest friends to light some candles and set some heartfelt intentions.
