September 2023: Horoscopes for Moderns
The New Moon this month opposes Neptune. Depending on your sign, heightened inspiration—or unrealistic expectations—helps or hinders your path forward.
ALTHOUGH THE DAYS have moved a bit beyond the official date of midsummer, this observation from the author Genevieve Salerno still resonates with our entry into September:
“Midsummer is the sexiest time of year. The word itself conjures images of luscious fruit, eternal twilight, warm nights dotted with the firefly’s peridot lights and feverish days punctuated by bursts of thunder and warm rain. It is a time when romance wanders freely in the mind, and when the bounties of earth are so plentiful, they are intoxicating. Life seems to spring eternal.”
“The green of the trees begins to take on a darker, more exhausted verdancy, animals go about the business of rearing their growing young, instead of birthing them and the nights and hottest days are filled with the gnawing presence of insects. Lammas, or Lughnasadh (pronounced: loo-NAH-sah), the sabbath which celebrates the beginning of the harvest year, is a time of maturity and of age. It is also a surreal moment in the year when death and life coexist in physical manifestation.”
