Welcome to September, Scorpio. Last month, you likely restructured a few things in your life to address the pandemic we're living through. That may have included looking at your own needs, creating some to-do lists, and doing what you could to adjust your workload. You're a fixed sign, Scorpio, which means change can be hard on you. However, during the full moon in artistic Pisces on Tuesday, September 4, you must become flexible. Use the night to relax and meditate. If you're gentle with yourself, answers tend to appear. 

When Mars goes retrograde from Wednesday, September 9, to Friday, November 13, your sex life changes, which can be difficult for you. Warrior planet Mars rules anger, aggression, and passionate sexual energy. When this planet is retrograde, you may have trouble asserting yourself. As Mars is your ruling planet, you'll be especially affected. So how do you ward off Mars retrograde's effects? Well, you don't. Instead, use these weeks to tap into your softer side. Make sensual love, approach business with kindness, and basically chill out. You can do it, Scorpio!

Mars retrograde also asks you to slow down. During the new moon in Virgo on Thursday, September 17, your attention turns to your health. Are you making sure you take the time to feed your body what it needs? Taking care of yourself includes mental health, so build time into that schedule for self-care. 

The month ends with the fall equinox on Tuesday, September 22. The equinox will help you get your ducks in a row to make it through the winter. This same date is the start of Libra season, which is all about balance, fairness, and partnership. It's a politically charged time, and you feel called to take action. Get involved in a local grassroots organization to feel connected to your community. Good luck, 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.
