Welcome to September, Virgo. It’s your birthday season, and with the Sun spending three weeks in your zodiac sign, you are the celestial favorite this month — be sure to act like it! Ask for what you want when it comes to your sexual relations — people are so used to you giving them what they want, but you’d benefit from being more selfish with your time, sex, and overall energy this Virgo season. The New Moon in Virgo on September 9 will be the perfect time to reinvent yourself sexually. If you feel like you’ve been a bit too reserved, especially while Venus was in your sign for most of last month, this New Moon will help you let your inner freak fly as you claim the sexual liberation that you deserve. This also coincides with Venus, the Planet of Love, shifting into Scorpio and highlighting your communication sector that same day. You may find that you attract an abundance of sexual suitors around this time, and if you’re already attached, you’ll become even more attractive to your romantic partner.
Your sex drive will increase as a result of this four-week solar transit and the New Moon energy in your sign, and you’ll be less self-critical and judgmental of yourself or others. You’ll be aware of times you pushed away perfectly suitable sexual partners simply because you weren’t yet at ease with yourself and your sexuality. Now that you’ve had this awakening, use this New Moon window to set clear intentions about the type of sex partner that you know you deserve, and think of the type of partner that you want to be. Want to be less controlling and more adaptable? Write down what that looks and feels like. Visualize yourself in a more free-spirited sexual position. Dream up who your ideal sex partner would be like and what sex with them would be like. Don’t place any limits on what’s possible, because this is your annual New Moon and the Universe wants to give you what you want. Too often, you settle for second best because you’re too shy to fully own what your heart desires. Not this month, Virgo. Not this time.
With Mars, the Planet of Action, entering Aquarius on the 10th of the month, expect the unexpected when it comes to your sex life. Mars will be in your health and wellness sector, and you may find yourself attracted to unconventional sex partners around this time. You tend to have a certain type sexually speaking, but Mars in Aquarius will help you wipe the slate clean and let people in who usually wouldn’t stand a chance. It’s highly likely that people from your past may re-emerge this month, especially people you haven’t talked to in a while. But it could end up being the best sex you’ve had in a while. Try not to judge… be open to what the Universe sends your way and let go of your need to control everything about your sex life, Virgo. Sometimes you think yourself out of a sexual experience that could be liberating for you, and Mars in Aquarius will help you release that urge to self-sabotage. The more you give into the magic of the present moment with your partners and stop trying to fix everything about the relationship, the better your sex drive and sexual experiences will be.
On September 22, the Sun shifts out of your sign and into airy Libra, highlighting your money and security sector. This four-week transit will continue to emphasize the themes of “live and let live”, as you adopt a more adaptable and detached perspective on sex and relationships. The Libra energy will have you seeking partners who are more light-hearted and who can help you relax and decompress. This isn’t the time to have huge expectations about where things are going, or to pressure anyone to have “the talk”, although Chiron Retrograde entering Pisces on September 25 may activate some old wounds that need healing before you can truly let your sexual self be free and open. Around that date you may find it easier to be honest about repressed feelings that have been left unspoken. Your ruler Mercury will be way out of its post-shadow period of Mercury Retrograde, so your thoughts will be clearer and your ability to speak your truth will be stronger. By month’s end, you will have gotten so much off your chest that you’ll feel ready to have more sexual adventures, just in time for Pluto’s shift direct. Get ready for your deepest sexual urges to be satisfied as a result of all that self-reflection and honest discussion that you’ve been having with yourself and those you’re sexually engaged with. All’s well that ends well.
