What’s Your Sign? with Tayler Valentine
Tayler Valentine is SEALED Magazine’s Resident Astrologist. People all over the world are beginning to ask the universe for a tad bit more guidance. Why astrology, you might ask? Well, why not? If the moon influences the tides and humans are composed of up to 60 percent of water, why not believe the moon has influence on you? Tayler provides this month’s astrological forecast and translates how that will impact each Zodiac sign.
2020 has had a lot in store for all of us and (surprise!) so will the month of September.
On Sept. 2, there’s a full moon in Pisces. This means we are all bound to be deep in our feelings, while also bringing a dire need for self-care. Full moons are for reflecting on the intentions you set during the new moon. It is important to take care of yourself during this shadow period including being aware of when you are too hard on yourself.
Mars is in Retrograde from Sept. 9 until Nov. 13.The aggression to get things done is stronger than ever. All astrological signs will feel an inner pressure and desire to express themselves.
On Sept. 12, Jupiter goes direct and builds confidence and enthusiasm. This month is going to be exhausting because the possibilities are endless.
On Sept. 17, the new moon in Virgo urges you to take charge of your life and start refining relationships, self-esteem and health.
Lastly, on Sept. 29, Saturn goes direct and clears the way for long-term goals. The effort you put in at the beginning of this month will reap rewards before October, but only if you allow it!
Aries (March 21—April 19)
Known as the hot head of the zodiac, Aries has a quick wit to defend themselves in any situation. The energy of this month encourages you to find the source of your chaotic energy! During this Virgo-influenced time, synchronize your timing with the universe. It’s admirable to always do things at 100 percent, but do you even know what you’re working for yet?
Taurus (April 20 — May 20)
Don’t be afraid to change your mind this month, Taurus! People in your life recognize you as a very grounded but sometimes stubborn individual. Teach yourself that it’s okay to change your mind sometimes. There’s no question you’re a hard worker, but use that hard work and determination on yourself. Don’t run away from the possibilities of change, your practicality will be your greatest weapon this month.
Gemini (May 21 — June 20)
You never know what side of the coin you’ll get, just like you never know with a Gemini! On one side, a breakthrough is possible this month—but only after a very necessary breakdown. This isn’t a reference to a breakdown in your spirit, but finally a breakdown of the walls you’ve put up all year. Gemini, do you need a hug? I think so.
Cancer (June 21 — July 22)
First things first, who are you? Cancer, do you even know yet? Aside from your subconscious-driven need to help everyone else, how are you doing? It’s time to cut the waterworks and buckle up. The Sun in Virgo the first half of this month promotes diligence and self reflection.
Leo (July 23 — Aug. 22)
Oh no, Leo season is over! The confidence was high last month, but don’t get too full of yourself. Watch how you spend your money, or rather what you spend your money on. Your confidence from last month is still lingering, so be sure not to let your ego get in the driver’s seat. People will still see you without all the flashing lights.
Virgo (Aug. 23 — Sept. 22)
YAS VIRGO. This is your time to shine! For this month of September, there has been a fire ignited in you to get things done. Virgos are very known for self-criticism and isolation; this is not one of those times. Everything doesn’t have to be perfect! Be kind to yourself, and to others as well. There’s nothing you can’t do this month, you’re always prepared.
Libra (Sept. 23 — Oct. 22)
Libra, this month brings a lot of pressure on the sector of your chart that influences career, status and responsibility. Lighten up, and reconsider your relationship with work. You can love work, but watch how much you work for love. Developing a solidified perception of yourself will only benefit you.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 — Nov. 21)
Scorpio, it’s time to promote yourself. September encourages you to let everyone know who you are (they’ll be quite surprised). Your 11th house of affairs influences networking, promoting, and setting goals. Establish firm ideas on your expectations! Don’t forget that everyone does not maintain your perception, so let’s relax!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 — Dec. 21)
Your usual optimism is challenged this month by some deep-rooted issues that require your attention. Consider shadow work; meditation and reflection. Begin to ask yourself, “why not?” The responsibilities you have may not be satisfying you. Try service related work or something to give you purpose.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 — Jan. 19)
This month brings opportunity for new relationships, Capricorn! For some, it may signify a new relationship or the need to mend current ones. Creative opportunities and expressions are at their peak. During the month of September, focus on your 9th house affairs of travel, experience and teachings. Decide to read a book this month, or start that hobby you’ve always been interested in.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 — Feb. 18)
Aquarius, this month let’s consider your responsibilities, for once! Your 6th house transits focus on your goals and life direction. As well as your responsibilities, consider your possibilities as well. Get your heart out of storage and release your need for something different! Protect what is yours, but stay open-minded.
Pisces (Feb. 19 — March 20)
Don’t rush the time of the universe just for the sake of feeling something. It would be a good idea to take time and figure out what does and doesn’t work for you. Once you find the right muse or motivation, you’ll be able to get out of this social rut! You’re dreamy Pisces, think of something!
