Your Monthly Horoscopes: September 2018

Horoscopes

September 2018 is jam-packed with planetary activity!


If you thought August was intense with eclipse and retrograde season, wait until you feel the energy that comes from the astrological free for all that's occurring in the sky. September will have us all feeling emotionally buzzed, inspired, creative, and passionate about people, places, and things in our lives.

This energy will have us craving connection, alignment, and using our intuition to self-actualize our potentials and analyze our current trajectory, focusing on how to move next. Many of us will be gracefully falling into all the changes we've made over the summer, and mentally preparing for a whimsical but chaotic fall season.

We have a chiron retrograde entering Pisces, and Pluto goes direct to set us off for October 2018.

Throughout the month the planets switching things up will affect each zodiac sign in multiple ways. Click through the gallery below to see what this means for you:

Gemini

Saturn going direct will put Geminis in a light-hearted mood. Many will operate from a place of contentment - knowing that at the end of the day, all is good where it truly matters. If you start the month in a funky mood, you'll run the risk of carrying that energy throughout the month. Instead of stewing in reasons to be upset, raise up in reasons to be joyful.

Mercury entering Virgo on the 5th will be full steam ahead with the busy-body energy again. Just because you are ready to focus, get back to business, and come out of your summer activities, doesn't mean that you should go back to overworking yourself.

Remember that you are only as efficient as your spirit is aligned.

Venus entering Scorpio on the 9th could be an exceptionally lucky day for Geminis. Using the alluring energy of Venus, and the intuitive and spiritual energy of Scorpio, you might find yourself in the right place at the right time, around someone you are supposed to meet. Don't be shy today! Use your mouthpiece to finesse into certain spaces or opportunities. You never know who you could be chopping it up with. Go with the flow and see where the universe leads you.

Lastly, the chiron retrograde entering Pisces and Pluto going direct will point your focus back inward, giving you a much-needed break into self-love and self-care or reflection.

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with some folks about songs that should've been official singles yet never were. One of the ones that I shared was Mariah Carey's "All Alone in Love" (a song that she wrote when she was only 15, by the way). To me, it's a perfect way to intro this piece because I have had enough personal experiences and counseled enough people to know that it is very possible to be in a relationship with someone — and still feel quite alone in it. Not because your partner doesn't love you. Not because they're up to some totally f'ed up shenanigans. It's just…even though you signed up for a true and lasting partnership, somehow you now feel some of the very words that define what being alone can feel like: unattended, detached, unassisted, semi-compassionless and perhaps even abandoned on some levels.

When I think about actresses who have been cultural figures throughout my lifetime, Gabrielle Union-Wade is truly one of the first names that come to mind. I can recall being on the playground in grade school urging my friends to learn the cheer routines from Bring it On just as easily as I can remember a few years ago watching Being Mary Jane, crying from the relatability of Mary Jane's life struggles (a story for another day). It's inspiring to watch a powerful black woman whose art has been a consistent source of entertainment and influence. Although I must say, I think many of us have grown to cherish her personal journey and stories just as much.

Feed-in braids have become one of the hottest hair trends on the scene. These types of braids are created by "feeding-in" pieces of hair extensions to the main braid so that it gradually grows in size. It gives the illusion that the hair is directly growing from the scalp, which comes in clutch for styles that requires synthetic hair. This type of styling allows for a more natural look at the hairline and it protects your edges and hairline from excessive tension from heavy hair extensions thus, reducing the likelihood of traction alopecia (or loss of hair from the hairline.) And for women of color, tight braids or pulling the hair back too tight is one leading cause of this type of hair loss.

As the winds cool and the leaves change colors, it is without fail that I get this invigorating feeling. Potentially a feeling left over from childhood where every September presents a new opportunity to reinvent yourself, or possibly the contagious buzz of fashion weeks across the globe with streets lined with inspiration for how to style fall's hottest trends. Regardless, there's no doubt that my love of fashion rears its head at this time and always pulls me back into the fold. The fun, albeit overwhelming, thing about this season is the sheer volume of trends presented on the runways. In many ways, we're taking a trip down memory lane, but in other ways, we're seeing the rules of fashion being reinvented in front of our eyes.
