Gemini September

September’s energy is about grounding yourself in truth and transparency, Gemini. There’s a reason you’re known as a heartbreaker / player, even if you don’t necessarily resonate with that characteristic. It’s because people can’t keep up with your dualism and constantly changing nature. The Virgo New Moon at the start of the month encourages you to slow down enough to let your sexual and emotional partners truly see you, hear you, and feel you. But before you can do that, you must begin by cultivating that sensitivity and vulnerability with yourself. It’s essential that you take sex more seriously, Gemini, and that you’re respectful of your partner’s needs.

During Virgo Season, people are able to see through each other more easily, and you’ll want to avoid drama by keeping it real from the jump. If not, with Uranus, the Planet of Surprise, currently retrograde in your spirituality and healing sector, you may be the one who ends up with the broken heart due to repetitive cycles of unhealthy behavior in your connections. Set intentions between September 1 – 14th about how you can deepen your sexual and spiritual relationship with yourself and others. Be honest with yourself about when you’ve used others for emotional or sexual connections, and be honest about when you’ve held back from pursuing what you really wanted due to societal standards. This is the month where you can break free from that. The choice is yours.

Mid-month, the Pisces Full Moon activates your career and reputation sector. An ex may call you out on something, either personally or publicly, and it’ll have you all in your feels. Before you get defensive or manipulative, make sure you’re actually listening to what they have to say (without immediately thinking of your comeback). Also make sure you’re not using sexual advances as a way to resolve conflict without actually putting in the work to heal and understand each other. Escapism is something that you should work on leaving behind. Either you’re in, or you’re out.

With your ruler Mercury, the Planet of Communication, entering your fellow Air sign of Libra on the 14th, along with Venus, the Planet of Love, you’ll be able to lighten up considerably both in and out of the bedroom. But make sure you’re not taking everything so lightly that you end up hurting your lover’s feelings out of carelessness. Being aware of what their love language is will bring you both so much closer, so don’t rush through foreplay or flirtatious conversations around this Full Moon. Take your time to explore each other’s minds as you open your bodies up to each other…

On the 18th, Saturn, the Planet of Challenge, ends its retrograde in the sign of Capricorn. This activates your sector of merging and intimacy. Blockages that you previously experienced these past 5 months surrounding what your freakiest desires are will suddenly begin to be cleared. Perhaps you were living a double life, unable to be honest with yourself or others about what you really want from sex, relationships and intimacy. You may have to deal with guilt or karma coming back to haunt you at times — it’s likely that a relationship or situationship will end around this time, even if it’s something you’ve had in your life for a while. The key is to lovingly release, especially as we approach Libra Season on the 21st. Admit when you failed to show up as the lover you wish you could be. Make apologies for times you deceived yourself or another. And then forgive yourself, Gemini. You’re learning and growing daily.

Once Libra Season begins on the 23rd, give yourself permission to let loose. Flirt, hit up an ex, take yourself out on dates, be as charming and sexy as you want to be. You come alive during Libra Season, as it activates your sector of fate and true love. If you meet someone new around the Libra New Moon on September 28th, they’re likely to be a lasting sexual partner in your life (at least for the next 6 months to come). The key is to not overthink it — even if you end up having sex or hooking up sooner than you thought. Be mindful of other people’s feelings, and don’t lead them on if they’re trying to dive in too deeply. But ultimately let your body guide you as you merge sexually with your lover(s) at month’s end. It knows exactly what to do, and how often to do it.
