A professional astrologer breaks down what every zodiac sign can expect.

Thanks to an alarming number of retrogrades and planetary shifts, the last few months have been a bit rocky, astrologically speaking. Luckily, September will bring some relief to all the signs of the zodiac—especially when it comes to romance. Venus, the planet of love, ends its retrograde in Leo on September 3rd, making romantic energy the focus of the month.

“Venus is about what we love and who we love,” says Donna Page, an Atlanta-based professional astrologer with a graduate degree in counseling psychology. “The energy this month is, ‘Let's connect with people and do things that are enjoyable.’” As the summer winds down and Virgo season transitions into Venus-ruled Libra season on the 23rd, this harmonious energy will only intensify, Page says. Expect smooth sailing in all your relationships.

It may be a low-drama month, but that's not to say there are no important astrological happenings in September. A few dates to note include the new moon in Virgo on the 14th; Mercury, the planet of communication, ending its retrograde on the 15th; and a full moon in fiery Aries on the 29th. All of these events will translate to easier communication and fewer hiccups, especially in romantic relationships. This is a perfect month to spend some quality time with the one you love, or put yourself out there and open your heart to new connections, Page adds. Taking romantic risks will yield rewards this month!

If you’re wondering what all this means for your sign, keep reading for Page’s analysis:

In a relationship: For coupled-up Aries, this month is all about clarity. Those questions about the future of your relationship, and whether your partner's really the one, will finally be answered come the full moon in Aries on the 29th. This will literally shine a light on any dark areas of your life, so you'll probably have to confront anything you've been sweeping under the rug. Know this is a good thing, though—being honest about your feelings can lead to huge breakthroughs in your relationship, and your life in general. With Venus, the planet of love, influencing your romance sector and now moving direct (after a pesky few weeks in retrograde), you’ll find resolution. Promise!

Single: Good news, single Aries: this month is full of opportunities for romance. With the full moon in your sign on the 29th and Venus, the planet of love, in your romance sector all at the same time, you are positively radiant. Seize this moment, put on your favorite 'fit, and get out there. Your energy's attracting a lot of different people, but it’s up to you to decide who's worth your time. Keep an open mind and let your intuition be your guide as you hit the town.

In a relationship: Taurus, if you’re feeling like a homebody this month (well, even more than usual), you can blame it on the stars. Venus, your ruling planet and the planet of all things love, is hitting your domestic space. Translation? It’s time to hit the Container Store and your local Home Goods, because you are nesting big time. Spruce up your space and elevate the atmosphere for you and your S.O. With a clean and refreshed home to spend time in, you'll deepen your emotional connection and make new memories!

Single: Single Taurus, this month may feel a bit... intense. This season, the Virgo energy is strong, making you feel extra analytical. While it might feel nearly impossible to put the effort into going on dates, it’s actually a pretty great time to do it. With so many planets in Virgo—including Mercury, the planet of communication—you're basically a dating detective this month. You’ll be able to see any new connections for who they are, and quickly understand whether they're right for you. If you treat this month as an exciting adventure rather than a tiresome task, there's a good chance you'll meet someone special.

In a relationship: Get ready, Gemini, because September is turning up the heat in your relationship. Mars, the planet of action and desire, is in your house of romance, making now the perfect time to spend some quality time with bae. Make some surprise dinner reservations at that new neighborhood spot, and really make your partner feel special. Oh, and carve out some alone time, too, because your sexual connection's feeling equally hot these days. This month, leaning into your romantic nature will bring you closer than ever. Enjoy it!

Single: Can I borrow you for a second, single Gemini? September may as well be your own season of The Bachelorette, because you're about to go on a lot of dates. With Mars, the planet of action and desire, in your house of romance, this month is about taking charge of your dating life. Then, on the 29th, the full moon in Aries might have you thinking about a friend who could turn into something more. Enjoy the ride, Gemini, because the options this month will be plentiful. It’s time to embrace all of life and love’s possibilities.

In a relationship: If you’ve been keeping things a bit close to the chest, September is about to crack your metaphorical shell. The new moon in Virgo on the 14th opens up your communication sector, preparing you to address any concerns you have in your relationship. Plan some alone time with bae, and share what’s on your mind in a non-confrontational way. Addressing small issues— like dishes in the sink, or a joke you didn’t love—can clear the air and strengthen your bond.

Single: Call up your girls, Cancer, because it’s time for a new dating app photo shoot. Give your Hinge profile a refresh, and don’t be afraid to ask for advice with your prompts. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, is asking you to show your true self this month, even online. Then, the full moon in Aries on the 29th will highlight your public presence, encouraging you to take any dating app conversations... offline. Make plans, and let yourself be seen for the beautiful and dynamic human that you are!

In a relationship: It is a great time to be a Leo in love. Venus, the sign of beauty and pleasure, has been retrograde in Leo since July but goes direct in your sign on the 3rd, bringing a sweet energy to all of your relationships, but especially your romantic ones! This will make it easy for you to express yourself and share even your most intimate thoughts with bae without worry. And trust, that effortless communication will bring you closer than ever. When the sun goes into Libra on the 23rd, it’s in your house of travel, making September the perfect time for a getaway. Scan Airbnb for any last-minute deals, and get out of town!

Single: Venus, the planet of love and beauty, goes direct in your sign on the third, making now a perfect time to open yourself up to new connections. The full moon in Aries on the 29th ups the fire sign energy even more, allowing your personality to light up the room, no matter where you are. Whether you book a last-minute trip to Spain (the full moon may have you feeling that way, btw...) or hit your fave dive bar, you are bound to make meaningful connections this month.

In a relationship: While you often get a reputation for being set in your ways, September brings a sense of lightness to your love life. Between Virgo season and the new moon in your sign on the 14th, you're feeling—to borrow the words of Virgo icon Beyoncé—comfortable in your skin and cozy with who you are. This opens you up to new experiences and opportunities for growth. Step out of your comfort zone this month, and make sure to bring your partner with you! Enjoying a spontaneous trip together or a fun date night will only tighten your bond.

Single: It’s your birthday month, single Virgo, and you're feeling yourself. The wanderlust is strong, and with the newfound confidence you feel during your birth season and the new moon in Virgo on the 14th, now is a perfect time to chase your dreams and explore the world. Let be your guide, and go on an adventure this month. There is a whole world of people to meet and connections to be made. If you find someone interesting during your travels, don’t be afraid to keep in touch. Sometimes, the right connections are worth pursuing, even when they're long-distance!

In a relationship: This month is all about finding balance between your identity as an individual and as a couple this month. Lucky for you, Libra, balance is your specialty. Spend the month journaling and thinking about this concept, because the full moon in Aries on the 29th will bring extra attention to your partnerships. Spending time with your partner this month is important, especially around the full moon. Plan a picnic in the park, a nighttime beach date, or another romantic outing of your choosing. Putting in the time will yield rewards!

Single: If you feel like a fire was lit under your butt this month, you can thank Mars, the planet of action—which is in your sign this month, making you ready to take charge. Try writing down what you want in a partner this month, and then make moves to go after it. Unfortunately, you can’t meet the love of your life sitting inside watching Bravo, but you can use that time to lay the groundwork on the dating app of your choice. Set up some dates and truly put yourself out there, Libra.

In a relationship: Venus, the planet of love, is pushing you to get out into the world this month. So grab bae, and go on an adventure! New settings and experiences will allow you to open up and feel comfortable and happy doing it. Whether you go on a road trip or just plan a really epic end-of-summer date night, embrace these exciting times with your partner. The new moon in Virgo on the 14th also has you craving time with your friends, making it a great time for you to bring your boo around the crew!

Single: You are booked and busy this month, single Scorpio! With the new moon in Virgo on the 14th in your house of friendship, you'll find yourself with a packed schedule. If you’re looking for love, you’ll be exposed to a ton of new connections with all of the birthday parties, happy hours, and weddings on your calendar. Mars, the planet of action, is highlighting your intuition right now, so be sure to stay true to yourself and listen to your gut when forming any new bonds. This energy will protect you from your old, unhealthy dating patterns and allow you to shift into a new approach on love.

In a relationship: Grab your passport and your partner, Sagittarius, because it’s time for an adventure! Venus, the planet of love, is in your house of expansion and travel, making it prime time for an exciting getaway with bae. There is no time like now to travel the world. When you’re off galavanting in Venice or going on an impromptu road trip, you'll start to see your S.O.—and your future together—in a new way, too.

Single: Approach September with an open heart, single Sag. Your adventurous spirit allows you to lead an exciting life, with new plans popping up right and left. Embrace this part of yourself this month, and put yourself out in the world, either literally (you're always down to hop on a plane, after all!) or metaphorically. Approaching new connections with genuine curiosity can lead to some intriguing bonds. Then, pay close attention to anyone who crosses your path during the full moon in fellow fire sign Aries on the 29th. The romantic energy is strong; you never know who might catch your eye!

In a relationship: This month is all about intimacy for you, Capricorn. Venus, the planet of love, is still in fiery Leo, making you feel more open than usual. Share what’s in your heart with your partner: Communicating your desires allows for a deeper level of closeness. For as ~deep~ as you may get this month, though, make sure you balance it out with fun. Use your partnership as a safe haven to unwind from life’s stresses, and tap into your inner child this month! Is anyone up for a game of laser tag, or a frolic through the park?

Single: Mars, the planet of action, has your calendar packed this month. All signs point to you getting out there and making tons of new connections. Whether you’re hard at work at a conference or heading out in your best outfit for a friend’s birthday, keep your eye open for any interesting people. The stars are aligned for a meet-cute. Then, the new moon in Virgo on the 14th encourages you to expand your work horizons, which may allow for an interesting run-in.

In a relationship: Making time for your partner—even if it feels like your schedule is packed—is key this month. Venus, the planet of love, ends its retrograde at the beginning of July, allowing for fun, free-flowing dates with your partner. Spend a whole Sunday together, or plan a weekend getaway, just the two of you. Allowing your relationship to be a comfortable place where you can relax and have fun allows for better communication and a stronger connection. Then, the new moon in Virgo on the 14th encourages you to share any expectations you have–whether those are boundaries or future plans, like marriage and children. Make sure you and your partner are on the same page so you can move together as a strong couple.

Single: This is a fun month for you, single Aquarius! Mars, the planet of action, is pushing you to get out into the world and expand your perspective. Perhaps it's time to sign up for that cooking class, or join a book club? When you put yourself in environments with like-minded people, you're likely to make important connections... including romantic ones! Then, the full moon in Aries on the 29th marks a major breakthrough, where you'll find yourself letting go of certain judgments and "icks" that will allow for deeper relationships. Remember, writing people off can cause you to miss out on some great connections.

In a relationship: This month is all about embracing the little things, Pisces. Venus in Leo has you focusing on all the small but important things you love about your partner: Maybe it’s the way they always make your bed in the morning, or the romantic texts they send you throughout the day. Focusing on these small positives can bring a new level of intimacy and appreciation to your partnership.

Single: Venus, the planet of love, is really highlighting your day-to-day life this month, Pisces. Is it possible that your next S.O. has been standing behind you in line at Sweetgreen every day? The potential to meet someone at the gym, work, or one of your go-to coffee shops is high. If you do connect with someone, Mars, the planet of action, encourages you to focus on your emotional bond over your physical one... at first, anyway! Sharing your vulnerable side will foster more meaningful relationships, even though it can feel scary.
