Reading time: just 9 minutes to win the month (but stay as long as you like!)
September 2020 Taurus Overview Horoscope
There’s no “falling into fall” for you, Taurus—in fact, you might need to be dragged into the new season! Sure, everybody else is in back-to-school and work mode, but this month spotlights fun and decadence for you. With the Sun in Virgo heating up your playful and passionate fifth house until September 22, stretch out those sunny days with a late-summer romance or by keeping the celebratory spirit going strong.
You’ll make up for lost time soon enough, so no guilt, okay? Later in the month, when the Sun moves into Libra and your sensible sixth house, you can get on top of healthy routines and all things solid and practical. Until then, enjoy a few more sunset glasses of “frose” at your favorite al fresco spot. Salud!
Another reason to pace yourself this month? Aggravator Mars will be retrograde (backward) from September 9 until November 12, in its hard-driving home sign of Aries. Something that’s been blazing along could cool down for the next couple months.
Mars is in your behind-the-scenes and restful twelfth house for an extended journey that began June 27 and will stretch until January 6. Early in 2021, he will blaze into Taurus, a New Year’s reboot that could send you soaring. But until then, easy does it. Your physical and mental energy levels may be low or internally focused. With Mars reversing, prepare for a dose of healing and dealing. A piece of your life may go through an emotional transition and perhaps even come to a close.
Changemaker Uranus is also retrograde in YOUR sign from August 15 to January 14. The rest of 2020 marks a time to integrate the many changes of this tumultuous year instead of barreling forward. In fact, during the first half of September, all five of the slower-moving outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus and Pluto) are retrograde. Four are in earth signs, adding extra weight to their backspin for fellow earth signs like you.
There’s a good chance you’ve been contemplating reinvention. Don’t be too disappointed if you’ve been trying new things but have been unsure which direction to go. Certain big ideas haven’t gained full traction—especially since Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are retrograde in Capricorn and your ninth house of growth and risk-taking.
Sometimes we feel a bit estranged from our power during outer-planet retrogrades, unable to really make an impact or stuck in a more passive role. The key is to view this time as an opportunity to recalibrate all your long-term plans, an important thing to do anyway as the season turns, the U.S. election race heats up, and we move into a turbulent fall.
In the second half of September, the outer planets begin to straighten out (Jupiter and Saturn this month; Pluto in early October). Lucky Jupiter turns direct September 12, followed by organizer Saturn on September 29 and powermonger Pluto on October 4. Once this planetary pick-me-up gets underway, you could speed ahead with a new project or life chapter, and really put your stamp on something that makes you proud.
You can don the project manager chapeau later this month. When the Sun marches into Libra and your orderly sixth house on September 22, you’ll be eager to roll up your sleeves, make a plan and activate it!
Week 1: September 1-6
Power up your posse
Collaborations ignite! On September 2, the year’s only Pisces full moon tags your eleventh house of technology and teamwork. A long-running group project could come to a celebratory conclusion. Enjoy a moment of glory with your cohorts and don’t be shy about alerting the influencers when you post about your win. A thought-provoking post could go viral. Get that buzz working in your favor!
Since full moons can mark transitions, you may decide to part ways with one crew and join forces with another. These tech-savvy moonbeams support the launch of a new digital project or the debut of a freshened-up online presence. Either way, this full moon harks back to something that got started during the February 23 Pisces new moon. Who did you befriend or follow then? Have you nurtured this relationship enough to make a big ask? This could be the day to capitalize on your efforts.
Week 2: September 7-13
Go with the flow
You can’t control everything, Bull—much as you’d like to! And on Wednesday, September 9, when go-getter Mars hits the brakes for a two-month retrograde in Aries and your twelfth house of surrender, that “inconvenient truth” becomes painfully clear. Between now and November 13, let events unfold at an organic pace instead of trying to force an outcome.
As in-your-face Mars spins into reverse in your twelfth house of hidden agendas and mixed messages, you could find yourself on the #canceled list if you cross the wrong person or post a tone-deaf message. Sarcasm may miss its mark, leaving you wildly misunderstood. (When in doubt, leave it out!) In relationships, jealousy and resentment can flare. Stay mindful that you don’t come on too strong or lapse into self-centered behavior. Secrets could be revealed, or you could encounter jarring information But don’t go digging for it—snooping is a no-go.
An insecurity that you’ve covered up with bravado could still be festering, and this is your moment to address it at a core level. If you haven’t dealt with hurtful feelings, use this time to work with a healer or therapist and tap into parts of your subconscious that are crying for attention. Where do you feel irritated, angry or reactive? Examine the underlying fears and old wounds that could be driving you to act in ways that don’t serve you.
A visionary project resumes speed on Saturday, September 12, when Jupiter goes direct (forward) in Capricorn, ending a signal-jamming retrograde that began on May 14. With the planet of enthusiasm and growth powering ahead in your ninth house of exploration, dust off big-picture plans that may have been put on hold. Publishing, teaching, travel and entrepreneurship are highlighted. Got a brilliant idea for a startup business or an online course? Clever Jupiter urges you to explore.
Although retrograde Mars and Uranus caution you to go slow, this is still a green light to take a leap of faith (but test your parachute first) between now and December 19 while Jupiter makes its final lap through Capricorn. Procrastinating? Being a perfectionist? No more “thinking about it”—take action!
Week 3: September 14-20
Open your heart, Taurus. The Virgo new moon on Thursday, September 17, activates your playful, sexy fifth house and sets the stage for a romantic rebirth. Now’s the time to plant the seeds for a fulfilling new romantic chapter. For coupled Bulls, this new moon can rekindle your romantic spark. Clear the calendar for some fun and frisky time.
If you’re single, this lunar lift could usher in a fresh love connection that develops over the next two weeks. Dare to reveal how you feel about someone special now. Fortune favors the bold, so talk to that intriguing person or make plans for a (pandemic-proof) meetup.
Got a talent to share? The new moon in your creative and expressive fifth house unleashes your inner rock star. Taurus is ruled by Venus, and many among your sign are naturally artistic. If you’re an aspiring musician, for example, sign up for Zoom voice lessons or play around with beats and tracks in GarageBand. Post a few demo tracks online. Find outlets to cultivate your gifts…and captivate an appreciative audience!
Mark your calendar for the corresponding February 27, 2021, Virgo full moon. Ventures you start now should bear fruit by then.
Week 4: September 21-30
Get down to biz
Gear up for action! On September 22, the Sun enters balanced Libra, heating up your organized and hardworking sixth house. It’s time to get your processes and plans nailed down. As a practical Taurus, you love to keep things smart and simple. The sixth house also rules wellness, and these healthy rays can energize your fall fitness efforts.
Calculated risks could pay off handsomely for the rest of 2020. After a frustrating reversal in your visionary, entrepreneurial ninth house starting last May, strict Saturn finally resumes its forward trajectory on Tuesday, September 29. Hopefully you’ve used these past few months to put together a solid game plan and are ready to set it in motion.
Saturn will stay in ambitious Capricorn until December 17, offering a final chance to put a structure behind your visionary ideas. After that, Saturn will shift into Aquarius (where it briefly visited from March 21 to July 1) and bring its taskmaster touch to your career zone until March 2023. Get those bold plans ready now, and you could be pitching them to a heavy-hitting VIP in the new year. After this, Saturn won’t return to Capricorn until 2047. Last call!
Just be aware that the very day Saturn turns direct, it will lock into a heated square with retrograde Mars in your twelfth house of hidden agendas. This may feel like a “hurry up and wait” moment as confusing plot twists send you on irksome detours. Are you ignoring red flags? Or is your anxiety just a fear of releasing control?
If your gut senses that something is off, investigate. Just because something looks shiny on the outside doesn’t mean you can bypass what’s going on behind the scenes. Even if all is well, take it as a strong reminder to not skip over important inner work in your quest for growth.
