Welcome to September, Gemini. Last month, your ruling planet Mercury went retrograde. Thankfully, that pesky backward dance comes to an end this month, and it’s not the only one. The planet Venus does direct on Sunday, September 3, in Leo and your 3rd House of Communication. While Venus is retrograde, we have an easier time getting away with putting off assessing actual compatibility. After all, summer is made for flings. However, now that Venus is direct, she calls you on your crap. Did you lead anyone on? You may have found a partnership that makes you content, but does it ignite all the passion that a celebrity like you needs? Frankly, you’re too good of a catch to coast. When Venus goes direct, she demands that you communicate directly and honestly with any romantic interests about your needs, whatever they are unique to your situation.
The next day, on Monday, September 4, Jupiter, the planet of expansion, goes retrograde in Taurus and your 12th House of the Unconscious. This retrograde gives us a chance to take a hard look at our past mistakes and finally learn from them. You have to ask yourself tough questions, including why you sometimes settle for less than you deserve. This lesson is reiterated (the stars really want to see you grow this September, Gemini) when Pallas, the “asteroid of wisdom,” enters Libra and your 5th House of Pleasure on Wednesday, September 13. Both transits demand that you grow up, accept how hot you are, and only settle for a relationship as one-of-a-kind as you are.
Famous Gemini charmers include Laverne Cox, Marilyn Monroe, and Prince. You’re so charismatic that it’s what people remember, which is why your company is in such high demand, and you’re known as the social butterfly of the zodiac. But you need downtime and rest as much as anyone. Probably more, since you tend to stay busy and sleep on sleep. So when Thursday, September 14, brings a dark new moon in Virgo, and your 4th House of Home and Family, put on your comfy clothes and relax. This is a night for binge-watching TV shows and soaking in glamorous baths, not for overindulging at some party you don’t even care about. And, by the time you wake up the next day, rest and refreshed on Friday, September 15, your ruling planet, Mercury, ends its retrograde and goes direct. Phew. Did you make it through without texting a former lover?
Whether or not you did, when the sun enters Libra, and your 5th House of Pleasure, kicking off Libra season on Friday, September 22, you have no time for nostalgia. There is goodness ahead, you can see it, but you won’t get it by lurking in the past. Get grounded and surround yourself with your chosen family who reminds you what a star you are when Friday, September 29, brings a full moon in warmhearted Aries and your 11th House of Friendship. And by get grounded, we mean, feel free to get into (healthy) trouble and blow off some steam with your best friends, social butterfly. Have fun, and see you in October.
