September is so much easier than August that you might wonder how these two months have any business abutting one another. The former month was marked by two intense eclipses and an overwhelming Mercury Retrograde phase, and this one is significantly lighter and sweeter. Since eclipses hit you harder than any other sign, it's no wonder you're happy to leave the last full month of summer behind. The first weekend of September is perhaps the most romantic you've experienced in a long time. That's because it's drenched in the vibes of the upcoming Full Moon in Pisces –your sister water sign. This activates your longing for travel and adventure, so if there's any way to be on the road as September opens, you'll be exactly in the right place. Mercury goes direct on Tuesday – allow the relief to flood in. It may take a week or so for everything to feel less wonky, especially at home, so try to be patient. The Full Moon is exact on the morning on the 6th, so the 48-hours before it arrives are likely to be the most dramatic. But everything can truly come together near the 20th, when the New Moon lights up your house of communication. This is your moment to plan out the next six-months of your social media strategy – you're a public relations genius right now.

Wow, Cancer, JUST WOW. August is bananas on all fronts, but if anyone can use this astro-insanity for self-improvement, it's you. Eclipse season returns for the second time this year, reflecting back to last February. Since the Moon is your ruler, eclipses are always a major deal for you, so pay close attention to all feelings that come up and all events that transpire – the stars are whispering important, transformative messages in your ear. The first eclipse arrives on the 7th in the form of a Full Moon. This Lunar Eclipse will bring up all the feelings you knew you were capable of having, then it'll bring up some that you didn't even know were lurking inside of you. In other words, this is a major mood-fest, Cancer – prepare for intense swings. Something or someone that came into your life last winter is on your mind again. Then all of a sudden BOOM – Mercury goes retrograde right in between the two eclipses (on the 12th). If you thought it was challenging to express yourself before, this phase will force you to slow down and reconsider all your words – spoken, written, and emoji'd. It's SUPER important to take a breath before you say the wrong thing, and this will remain in effect for the rest of the month. It's best to keep your lips zipped and not take anything personally from friends, family and colleagues – everything is up for misinterpretation. Finally, the cosmic icing on the crazy cake of August comes on the 21st when a New Moon/Solar Eclipse lands in your money zone. This calls for a radical reorganizing of the way you deal with your finances. You may suddenly come into a lot of cash, but it's extremely important to consider how and why you got it – and what you'll spend it on or save it for. On the other hand, you might realize that if you don't align your work with your values, you won't be able to continue at your job. Success and emotional security are one of the same for you, especially right now.
