Star signs and cannabis strains: September 2019 horoscopes
Wow, last month was something. You can thank the Grand Earth trine of Uranus-Saturn-Pluto in August for setting that ballsy, goal-oriented energy that should have you happily back in your groove for Virgo/Libra season (Oh, hi there, birthday kids. We’ll get to you in a minute).
This is a time to really hit the reset button, push forward with some positive changes, and set your intentions.
Well, you know what they say: “In like a lion, out like a super productive, OCD Virgo” (at least that’s what the astrologers say).
This is a time to really hit the reset button, push forward with some positive changes, and set your intentions, just like the first day of school all over again.
Stay the course and you should find yourself hitting Libra-level balance by the end of the month—achievement unlocked!
Your September Horoscope
Happy birthday, tenacious Virgo worker bees! Ah, another year around the sun… As a fitting birthday gift (and what could only be described as a classic Virgo move), you should find yourself delightfully ahead of the curve at the beginning of the month, reaping the payoff from all the labor you put in last month.
Your work ethic truly inspires jealousy. The Mercury-Uranus trine on September 1 brings about a wave of new possibilities—some of which might have some out-there ideas. Find yourself a smoking buddy and buckle in!
Stick with that efficient, get-it-done attitude to hit your full stride around the 9th during the Mercury-Pluto trine, giving you the momentum to focus on those more ambitious, long-term goals you’ve been after.
Keep an eye on your health and watch your mouth toward the end of the month during the Mercury-Pluto square on the 26th. Intense, dark and complex conversations are likely to arise around this time, and you know that your critical, nitpicky attitude can sometimes be a major buzzkill when you don’t keep that shit in check.
You love a good tried-and-true strain, so celebrate your bad birthday self with some Jack the Ripper this month. It will keep you energized, upbeat, and focused, i.e., your happy place.
Harmonious Libra babes! You’re all about balance, but might get thrown off at the beginning of the month during the Venus-Neptune opposition on September 4th, if you find yourself getting mixed into the wrong crowd. That good-natured spirit is contagious—watch out for people who might not have your back.
Channel that sweet Pisces full moon on the 13th to harness your creative and romantic side. It will set up a dreamy vibe for when the sun enters your sign on the 23rd—your time is soon, kiddo! Everything will feel fair and balanced (your favorite), just in time for the new moon to enter your sign on the 28th, when you’ll want to surround yourself with all sorts of pretty people and things.
Feel free to do a little shopping (also, your favorite), spruce up your house, or spend a few hours going down a YouTube make-up tutorial rabbit hole—might as well look as good as you feel for your birthday season!
Lean into those romantic Pisces moon vibes with a euphoric strain like Cookies and Cream, which will keep you soaring through the clouds as you stroll into peak Libra season. Also, listen to a couple disco albums while you do it.
Have things been feeling out of whack lately, Scorpio? September 2 is a good day to get things back on the right track when your home planet Mars conjoins super productive Virgo. Sex and love are in the air around the 6th during the Venus-Pluto trine. If you’re seeing someone, expect them to lean in a little closer, or if you’re single, expect a chance encounter—after all, giving off brooding sexxxy vibes is kind of your M.O.
While you’re feeling yourself, keep the momentum going until September 13 during the sun-Pluto trine, when you can show off your talents to get truly noticed. You might even get noticed too, so long as you don’t get too wishy-washy and miss the opportunity to take on a new project heading into the new Libra moon on the 28th.
You’ve got a lot going on this month that requires staying focused and attentive in your houses of love and career. The founder of the Girl Scouts of the USA was a Scorpio too, so GSC seems to be appropriately screaming your name this month: euphoric, creative, uplifted, and happy. Check, check, check, check.
You fire signs really know how to light it up, for better or worse. The key this month is practicing moderation and patience, which will help avoid the urge to lean into your more negative mutable traits. All work and no play make Sag babes irritable and impatient! Throw some of that energy into loosening up your fortunate, creative, and fun-loving side around the 2nd during the Venus square Jupiter transit.
Try not to party too hard, though. You’ve still got plenty of work ahead, particularly a few days later on September 6 when you might start getting stressed out about your own past decisions. Deal with the consequences of your actions and own it—blaming others won’t help you repair your own mistakes.
The Jupiter-Neptune square on the 21st may signal a test of faith resulting from some embarrassment or disappointment. Seriously, do yourself a favor and just roll with it. People can barely remember what happened last week, let alone the embarrassing thing you’re kicking yourself over.
When you go into the dispensary, just tell your budtender the following statement: “I need something that will help me relax, but not knock me out or turn me into an anxious tweaker.” I’m guessing they’ll recommend something close to Pineapple Express—that’s what I would pick.
A fresh start sounds pretty good right now, doesn’t it, Cap kids? No better time to make a new start than the first of the month during the Mercury-Uranus trine, which is a transit that’s all about new opportunities.
Those long-term goals you’ve been working on so diligently will finally start to turn heads around the 6th during the sun-Saturn trine, when you’ll finally get some recognition for all that effort. A few days later on the 9th, the Mars-Saturn trine will give you that extra boost of ambition and perseverance to really get things done. Go you!
Schedule a little me time around the 22nd to really evaluate the details of your grand plans during the Mercury-Saturn square transit. It’s better not to share your ideas quite yet as chatty Mercury tends to get lost in communication around this time, which will muddle how wise, smart, and ambitious you are.
This is a good month for getting deep into yourself with some introspection and hard work. Stay focused with an uplifting, creative, and chatty strain like Nurse Jackie.
It’s a pretty chill month for you, Aquarius! Take that knowledge in stride, and expect lots of touchy-feely vibes at the beginning of the month during the Venus-Saturn trine, signaling bonding and stability. Catch up with an old friend or deepen your relationship with your lover—it’s a good time for this now.
Your mind will be alert and prime for absorbing information a few days later on the 5th during the Mercury-Saturn trine, putting you in a good position to work out any intellectual challenges in front of you (because you’re always a smart cookie).
If you’ve been feeling out of whack the past few months, you should find some balance around September 23 when the sun enters harmony-loving Libra. Take a minute to reexamine your relationships and long-term goals, and how you want to tackle them in the coming months.
This should be a stress-free month for you, but your mind will be active (in a good way). Put all that mental energy into fun, challenging tasks instead of pointless worrying. Pick a strain that will help you do that, like Dutch Treat, which is best known for its relaxed, euphoric, uplifting, and focused effects.
Does it feel like someone is trying to take advantage of your kind and somewhat gullible nature, sweet Pisces? They may, especially if you don’t watch your back around September 4 when Venus is opposite Neptune. This is a time of confusing, deceptive energy, so do not get sucked into any negative vibes. Hey space cadet: You. Do. Not. Have. Time. For. That. Shit.
Things should perk up around the 7th with the Mercury-Neptune opposition feeding into your creative tendences and setting you up for L-O-V-E on September 13 when an ultra-dreamy full moon enters your sign.
Always the romantic, aren’t you? Get it! Because you simply cannot handle bad energy and fighting, when the sun enters harmony-loving Libra on the 23rd, it should come as a sigh of relief. It will keep everything nice and balanced among everyone. Fucking finally! You deserve a break!
Take the edge of the past few months off by reaching for a relaxing strain that has just enough uplifting and focusing tendencies so you don’t totally conk out, such as Super Kush.
You worked your ass off last month, Aries, and it should all pay off this month, starting with Mercury-square-Jupiter on September 6, which signals big talks. Pay attention to open doors that might have felt previously shut, and take advantage of an opportunity to advance your long-term goals. You might be feeling yourself a little too hard during the sun-Jupiter square on September 8 (don’t get too cocky).
Around September 13, you might find yourself all up in your feels during the full moon in Pisces. Lean into your romantic side, Aries—people like your soft side. You might be M.I.A. the rest of the month during the Mercury-Saturn square on September 22, which favors hard mental work that is typically best tackled independently.
This month is all about focusing in an uplifting, energetic way. So, opt for a strain that will do all three, like Liberty Haze.
Roll up your sleeves, Taurus: You’ve got work to do this month. No better place to start than by working on yourself. Reassess your goals and hone in on what you really want on September 5 during the Mercury-Saturn trine. Big decisions are ahead, and you’ll want to strike while the iron is hot.
If you lagged on something during last month’s big Virgo moon energy (as you are prone to procrastination), you’ll get a second wind of energy on September 9 during the Mars-Saturn trine. Wrap up any remaining tasks or projects, keeping focused on the important ones and not fluff projects you’d rather do.
The 14th will be a good time to put work into reassessing your relationships, when Venus enters Libra. Remember: You can’t change other people, so if someone isn’t meeting your expectations, it might be time to find a balance by changing the way you think about them.
Relationships and unfinished projects will be at the front of your mind this month, so opt for a focused, chill strain that will allow you to concentrate on the big picture, like Harlequin.
So much to look forward to this month, dear Gemini! The world will seem like your oyster at the beginning of the month thanks to the energy radiating from the Mercury-Uranus trine on the 1st. Mercury is chatty, so you’ll feel inclined to yak everyone’s ear off about it.
Don’t brag too hard, particularly during the Mercury-Mars conjunction on September 3, when you might muddle your words, followed by the Mercury-Neptune opposition on September 7, which is the type of energy known for mental confusion and miscommunication that has the power to straight-up obliterate relationships. Gotta love how within the first week of the month you’ve already hit a high and a low—how hilariously apt for your sign.
On September 14, when Mercury enters peaceful Libra, you’ll be all about manners, which is a smart move for your long-term goals—after all, since when is running your mouth ever considered a virtue?
You’ll do best this month sticking to a strain that’s focusing, uplifting, and relaxing to avoid the perpetual whirlwind of falling whim to your mutable traits. Check out something like Double Dream, which should keep you happily chugging away.
Grab a notebook or a friend, because you’ve got lots to say at the beginning of the month, Cancer. Chatty Mercury will pass through your creative sign, giving you the power to truly articulate some powerful words on your mind.
You’ll experience a nice boost of positive energy when lovey Venus trines fortunate Jupiter on September 8, bringing a wave of optimism for news you’ve been waiting for. Expect to see more of that creative, quirky drive through the middle of the month when your ruler moon is full in Aquarius on September 15.
Watch your wallet on September 21 when Venus enters Virgo, which will help you with long-term financial planning. If someone asks to borrow money this month, the answer should be “Not now.” It’s okay to put yourself first sometimes!
Stay focused this month with a strain that will allow you to explore your creative side without taking a deep dive into the minutiae, like Black Jack. You’ve got money moves to make—no time for getting trapped in the details!
Listen, Leo: You’ve got some big-ass things on the horizon if you can keep your focus. Start by opening your mind to some new possibilities and out-there ideas when Mercury and Uranus trine on September 1. This is a time when you should leave the door open to chance encounters with interesting weirdos—preferably over a cannabis-fueled conversation.
You’ll be willing to put your money where your mouth when Mars and Jupiter square on September 12, and you’ll have both the drive and initiative to take care of business. The ambitious Mars-Pluto trine on the 19th will help you keep the momentum, which is likely to get noticed.
And you always love to be noticed, don’t you, you proud lion babe? All that positive energy will help toward the end of the month when Venus enters even-keeled Libra, where you will find it easier to compromise with the relationships in your life.
Chill and focused should be the two states of mind you strive to achieve at all times, which is why you should try a strain like Exodus Cheese.
