Welcome to GLAMOUR's monthly horoscope. Astrology writer Emma Howarth forecasts the month ahead for every star sign.

Virgo 22 August–21 September

Health kick? Promotion? Fitness frenzy? All three? You’re in your element as birthday season hits its stride and those back-to-school September vibes are looking damned fine on you. Enjoy it, Virgo! There’s not much you like more than getting stuck in to a fresh start, new regime or ten-point plan for the future and right now the cosmos really does have your back. The 7 September new moon in your sign urges you to put yourself to the top of your own priorities list and think bigger when it comes to your future. You’ve put the work in Virgo. You’re still putting the work in. And the time to sit back and reap some rewards is closer than you think. By mid September you could be celebrating the start of a serious upswing in your financial situation – at last! Hard work you’ve put into an important partnership (romantic, business or otherwise) could also start to pay off this month. The 20 September full moon sprinkles the right kind of magic on your relationships just when you need it most. We know it feels right to be cautious when something seems too good to be true but this time it’s the real deal, Virgo. By the autumn equinox and start of Libra season on 22 September you’ll be feeling fired up and ready to take a major next step in life or love. It’s dream come true time, Virgo.

FEELING EXTRA?

Bunk off for a full day of horizontal relaxation.

MANTRA FOR THE MONTH:

Believe your own hype.

Libra 22 September–22 October

After the summer you’ve had, Libra, you’re long overdue some kick back time. The good news is that the stars are on your side thanks to Virgo season focussing in on your healing twelfth house. Think slower living, self care and shutting out the noise of the rest of the world if you possibly can! Just because everyone around you is busy turning those September back-to-school vibes into six-packs and new work projects doesn’t mean you have to follow suit. And trust us, this period of downtime is part of a much bigger cosmic plan. Use the power of the 7 September new moon to get real about what matters most to you and allow yourself to power up in slo-mo. By mid month you’ll be feeling much more energetic thanks to go-getting Mars in your sign and you’ll soon be back on top (this is your year of fame, fun and creativity, remember?). A potent full moon on 20 September urges you to take a second look at a wellness or health goal. If something’s fallen by the way side lately now might be the time to get back on track. Try to tie up any loose ends in your love life before birthday season arrives on 22 September. As long as everyone knows where they stand, Mercury retrograde (from 27 September) should be a total breeze.

FEELING EXTRA?

Slip a rose quartz heart in your bra for maximum out love vibes.

MANTRA FOR THE MONTH:

Take it slow.

Scorpio 23 October–21 November

All that hard work last month wasn’t in vain, Scorpio, but if anyone deserves to cut loose this September it’s you. Handily the stars are on side as Virgo season homes in on your social eleventh house. It’s time to say ‘Yes’ to a big invitation, Scorpio! And you might as well say ‘Yes’ to all the smaller ones while you’re at it! A meeting of minds (and possibly hearts) could well be on the cards for you this month as love planet Venus takes a spin in your sign (from 10 September). But before that, a fresh-start new moon on 7 September urges you to rethink the status quo in your social life. Bad vibes between friends? Shady intentions at work? Your sixth sense is rarely wrong on these things, Scorpio. Make sure your plan for the months ahead doesn’t feel like a ordeal in waiting if you possibly can. By the 20 September full moon things are really looking up for you. A lucky break involving a passion project you’ve been working on – or dreaming about – behind closed doors could herald the big change you’ve been looking for. And there’s more where that came from! Take some time out as Libra season begins on 22 September and you might just hit upon a life-changing idea. Perhaps with a bit of creative thinking you actually can have it all, Scorpio?

FEELING EXTRA?

Take a ritual bath on the full moon.

MANTRA FOR THE MONTH:

Cancer 21 June–21 July

Autumn looks good on you, Cancer! If it feels like you’re emerging from hibernation right now that’s because, in a way, you are. Something major has been going down for you this summer but you’re ready to shake it off, step things up and start living life on your own terms again. You might just want to check those closest to you have got the memo before you unveil the new you, though! The 7 September new moon falls in your communication zone urging you to say what you mean, mean what you say and stand up for yourself as 2021 plays out. If that means putting the brakes on a life plan, new challenge or big adventure for the time being, so be it. When the right door comes along it’ll open much more easily, Cancer. The 20 September full moon urges you to let go of anything that’s holding you back from living your dream life. And if that dream life involves a change of address, spruced up space or better family relations, Libra season (from 22 September) has totally got your back. Everything is shifting for you right now, Cancer – in the best possible way. There’s never been a better time to trust your instincts, go for gold or believe in your own power.

Leo 22 July–21 August

September can be one hell of a downer for summer-loving Leos but this year things are different. You’re raring to go, revved up and ready to take action on a project with the potential to change your life (and bank balance) forever. Whether this means bagging that promotion, elevating a side hustle or getting to grips with the idea that came to you on a Santorini sun lounger this summer, the pay-off is going to be worth the investment. Set a next-level financial goal on the 7 September new moon and you might just start a chain reaction that ends in a fantasy becoming reality for you. Forget thinking big, Leo – we’re talking supersize here! If you’re single and wondering where the romantic action is at this month, just wait it out until the 20 September full moon. It falls in your intense eighth house bringing all the right dramatic fireworks your way. Think hot, hotter and then some, Leo. You might want to double check the object of your desire isn’t the possessive type before you dive on in, though. Libra season (from 22 September) sees you in full-on flirt mode and with even coupled up lions could find themselves rocking a few romantic boats. You’re known for your heart, Leo, but you might want to use your head on this one.
