Welcome to September 2023, Sagittarius. You always give off “I’m famous” vibes due to your infamous charisma, so your schedule tends to get crowded. With its bustling leather jacket vibe, this month sees clout and acclaim coming your way. As a result, self-care has never been more critical, so the stars also want you to carve out laid-back time for wellness rituals. During August, Uranus retrograde saw you swapping out old beauty products for bold looks you haven’t tried (have you heard about “goth fairy” makeup?), and now you can take your well-deserved vanity to the next level.
Venus, the planet of beauty, has been retrograde since July. As a result, astrologers asked everyone (yes, even stubborn archers like you) to consider pausing on major cosmetic shifts. When Venus goes direct on Sunday, September 3, it’s okay to remind everyone why your sign is intimidating with adventurous hair or embracing edgy needles in pursuit of a cool piercing, a trendy tattoo, or even a fresh round of injectables, if that’s your thing. (It’s okay if it isn’t!)
The next day, on Monday, September 4, Jupiter retrogrades in Taurus and your 6th House of Health. Remember, your House of Health isn’t scary, and you can use it as a basis to continue your curious exploration of different wellness routines. While this planet is retrograde, whether it’s therapeutic massage, talk therapy, or social activism, you’ll opt to prioritize your mental, emotional, and physical well-being. And, err, speaking of personal wellness: Vesta, the asteroid of spirituality, enters Cancer (and your 8th House of Sex, Death, and Transformation) on Wednesday, September 13. Expect to feel divine, whether through the pleasure of a sex toy, a date with a partner, or the joy of realizing you get a night alone and catch up on some much-needed sleep.
