Your monthly beauty horoscope: September 2019


TextGrace McGradeIllustrationCallum Abbott

After a fiery, Leo-oriented August, September gives us a healthy dose of realism and motivation to organise and refine the more messy areas of our lives.

Grace McGrade is an intuitive astrologer and priestess based in Los Angeles. She is the Co-founder of ASTRAL ORACLES, an open-source spiritual community, and author of Palpable Magic; a website exploring prose about sex, love, Los Angeles and the occult.

The theatrics of the summer come to an inevitable end in September, when inner planets move into results-oriented Virgo, initiating a month of clarity, responsibility and truth. We move into Virgo season, with no hesitation, and a willingness to get back to work – to clean house and practice service in our careers and personal relationships alike.

After Eclipse season and a fiery, Leo-oriented August, September gives us a healthy dose of realism and motivation to organise and refine the more messy areas of our lives. September is conducive to making healthy, practical changes in our lives that move us towards our highest versions of self.

Changes in routine and diet are supported by the celestial bodies, as the Virgo is certain of one thing: We are here to improve and grow. We are encouraged to show up for ourselves and others by doing the practical, being grounded and clear minded. Saturn, planet of lessons and restrictions, goes direct September 18, encouraging us to move beyond ideas of right and wrong, to stop judging ourselves and those around us and instead come from a place of deep empathy and understanding.

With no inner planets in retrograde, September is assured to be a time to welcome back order and discipline into our lives. To move in the direction of things that heal and push us towards growth. The shadow side of Virgo is an obsession with perfectionism and being right – so veer clear of excessive attempts to control yourself and those around you. Instead, channel that energy into taking the next indicated action that serves your own wellbeing.
