Astrology King says: "A number of planets moving through your opposite decan increases competition and rivalry. You may be forced to justify yourself or your goals so this is not a good month for going on the offensive or starting major new projects."

We recommend: Make time for yourself. Mediate. Put on a face mask. Rewatch all the seasons of your favorite show, if you feel like it. 


Maria DeSimone at says: "If you're looking to improve your health, there has never been a better time to act. Jupiter in your 6th house will help you find the right health care providers and treatment protocols to promote well-being and absolute happiness."

We recommended: Push yourself a bit further and give a go at something completely new. Never tried boxing? Or jiujitsu? The time is now.


Maria DeSimone at says: "Your happiness quotient is off the charts now and it all appears connected to home, family, and romantic matters. You might be ready to purchase a home or move into a new apartment. There might also be happy news from a relative that makes you smile wide."

We recommend: Give your apartment a little makeover. Even small touches such as extra pillows or a new vase can change the ambiance completely.


Maria DeSimone at says: "This is your month to shine! A New Moon in Cancer on July 4 means that you can expect plenty of personal fireworks. This is all about you, Cancer. What do you want to manifest over the next year of your life? What are your goals? Dreams? Ambitions? It's time to reinvent yourself and know that the universe is on board to support whatever plans you have for the next year of your life."

We recommend: Shining bright! And there's no better way to do that than with healthy, glowing skin. Why not invest in a lovely face mask?


Maria DeSimone at says: "Your career path might feel chaotic this month. Although there will be plenty of opportunities, at the same time, you'll need to exercise patience and restraint before you leap into something new. Make sure you tie up all loose ends connected to old projects or goals early in the month. "

We recommend: Arming yourself with tools that help you get organized. The fact that they are super cute definitely is a plus.


Maria DeSimone at says: "You're the star of the show this month in many ways. First, a Solar Eclipse will fall in your sign on September 1, ushering in a powerful new wave of potential for you to completely rewrite the script of your life, if you choose to do so."

We recommend: If being the star is in the stars for you, why not get an outfit to match? Don't be afraid to experiment with bolder colors, prints, and styles.


Maria DeSimone at says: "If you're single, having Jupiter in your sign is one of the most auspicious indicators that romance is on the horizon. Be open to the possibilities and know that now, more than ever, the universe has your back. Congratulations on winning the cosmic jackpot. Enjoy every drop of goodness!"

We recommed: Time to put that perfect date outfit together ... just in case.

We recommend: Call your friends and head off on a fun camping trip. Enjoy the last days of nice weather before the season changes.


Maria DeSimone at says: "Get ready for a game-changing month. On September 9, Jupiter, the giver of blessings and expansion, will move into your 10th House of Career for the first time in 12 years. Until October of 2017, Jupiter will help you reach new professional heights. In fact, you'll have the opportunity to go higher than you may have ever envisioned going. There is truly amazing energy that is bubbling up for you to use in September. The key, however, will be a slow and steady approach."

We recommend: Suit up to get an extra confidence boost while focusing on your career goals. Don't be afraid to jazz things up with statement accessories. 


Maria DeSimone at says: "Finances will be a priority this month, and you'll have a perfect opportunity to get your cash flow situation into tip top shape. They key to doing this will be in your capacity to remain flexible and open to trying something new. As early as September 1, you may hear about an opportunity for you to do exactly that. A Solar Eclipse will light up your 8th House of Investments and Shared Resources at this time."

We recommend: Instead of splurging your money on fast-fashion fads, invest into timeless quality pieces you will get to keep and enjoy for years to come.

Pisces says: "When your self-confidence picks up like this you not only get great ideas, but you're brave enough to implement them. Is the world ready for your creativity? Only time will tell, but the initial reviews are very, very good."

We recommend: Go creative with your outfits, too. It seems like a perfect time to experiment and step out of you comfort zone.

Now get out and have the best September yet!
