Here are your September horoscopes from L.A.’s go-to tarot reader Angie Banicki. As always, an artist from the community brings your sign to life, and this month it’s Kansas City, MO based illustrator Alyssa Gonzalez.

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19)


Music: Bobby’s Girl – Marcie Blane, Sahranin – Ahmed Fakroun, B.I.G. – X Ambassadors

The invitation for you this September, Aries, is to navigate the liminal hazy month by rolling into the void. You are in The Neverending Story—a maze that seemingly goes on forever. Yet in this space you will probably feel more yourself than ever and released of ego. Clarity seems so far out of grasp and yet the narrative of the neverending story is becoming more exciting with new potential opportunities floating around you. Your homework as you are writing this story is to notice when an old story tries to come back into play. Let go of that old narrative and hold onto your faith in this unknown. Old karma is releasing its hold on you as long as you can surrender your struggle to fight it. There is a violent energy underlying this transcendence, so remember to find calm spaces during this month. And take care of those adrenals. More veggies, B vitamins and magnesium!

Final Thought: “Become aware that there are no accidents in our intelligent universe. Realize that everything that shows up in your life has something to teach you. Appreciate everyone and everything in your life.” – Wayne Dyer

TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20)


Music: How Dare You Want More – Bleachers, Baby I Need Your Loving – Michael McDonald, Happier Than Ever – Billie Eilish

The past is the past, Taurus. Know that the work you’ve put in creatively is all adding up, but right now forget to forget. It doesn’t matter what you thought it was going to amount to. What matters is that it wasn’t for nothing. It’s just coming together in a way you NEVER could have imagined. The way for you to activate this important shift is to keep activating your connection to others by allowing your light to shine. There is a grayness fading from you now that allows others to SEE you more clearly and allows you to fully embrace the light of who you know you can be. This light is what calls in miracles. It’s like a harmonic convergence blending the left and the right brain—the masculine and feminine—in a way that is going to help reshape our planet. So, get your shapeshifting on, Taurus!

Final Thought: “Your struggle is your strength. If you can resist becoming negative, bitter or hopeless, in time, your struggles will give you everything.” – Bryant McGill

GEMINI (May 21- June 20)


Music: A List – HVOB, Halfway Up – The Brook & The Bluff, Pulling Strings – King Complex, Lost in the World – West Jeffery

Gemini, you are in the slow preparation of rebirth. Can you take responsibility for your experiences? If so, you will find this will really empower you! That which has brought darkness into your world is submitting to the light to be transformed. You can trust that all the work you’ve done and are doing is opening up choices for you to move forward into your best life. Trust the process. Also, I have to say that somehow it seems your process is meant to be shared. Your work in heart branding can impact so many. So become your naked truth as you bare that soul in your work, your art, your writing, your teaching and your impact on others who will also want to share in your truths. This is part of an evolution for all of us. So share—share your pains, your suffering. Share your joys and your freedom.

Final Thought: “I believe that being successful means having a balance of success stories across the many areas of your life. You can’t truly be considered successful in your business life if your home life is in shambles.” – Zig Ziglar

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

Influenced by the TWO OF WANDS, THE STAR

Music: The Mission – Bakar, Let’s Live – Aaron Neville, Shake Your Groove Thing – Peaches & Herb, Come See About Me – The Supremes

Cancer, you have the lucky star sparkling above your head, shining through your crown chakra this month. So can you just do nothing but appreciate your creative partnerships and allow that sparkle to clear you out this month? It’s like Mr. Clean is mopping up all the muck from your physical body to allow your soul to expand. Let him get in there and get the gunk out of those dark shadows and corners. If you’re a Reiki person, I’d be sure to schedule an appointment this month. Or even use your hands to test out your own powers! And whoa Cancer, you’ve got the fertility stamp all over you this month, so if you are trying for a baby, this is the month to get on it! And if you have a creative project you’ve been working on, time to start showing it to the world! Or if you’ve got one you’ve been wanting to start, this is the month to start planting those seeds—talking about it, letting it begin to grow!

Final Thought: “In life you can never be too kind or too fair; everyone you meet is carrying a heavy load. When you go through your day expressing kindness and courtesy to all you meet, you leave behind a feeling of warmth and good cheer, and you help alleviate the burdens everyone is struggling with.” – Brian Tracy

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)


Music: So Good – Fred Falke, Zen Freeman, Ten Ven, Kelli-Leigh, Dear Landlord – Bob Dylan, Two Feathers – Paco Versailles, You Are My Sunshine – Jimmie Davis

Leo, September is all about the declutter, self-organization and facing the dark energy to MOVE it for good. Carl Jung said, “Nothing has a stronger influence psychologically on their environment and especially on their children than the unlived life of the parent.” Time to clean that sh*t up. Whether you are cleaning out the old debris your parents polluted you with, or you are a parent seeing what you need to clean up through the mirror of your children, it’s time to see where the emotions are causing chaos and upheaval. The biggest piece of this is the awareness piece, the awareness of what you want to release and clear from your landscape. Some of you may get crystals and sage and smudges and oils to help remove the trappings in your living space. Another important chunk is asking yourself the hard questions and maybe even asking your partner or your family those questions: Why is this occurring in me now? What might have started this complicated feeling for me? Why am I feeling dark or negative? What feels like a block for me? Yes, Leo, this is your homework this month. I promise it will be beyond worth it to take this time to SEE yourself and OPEN yourself up even more! You’ve been chosen for this work to help bring more peace to us all. I would also add, notice where you might detoxify in any other ways this month. Less toxins in the body (booze and weed), less toxins in your cleaning products, and healthier inputs—cleaner foods, organic products!

Final Thought: “Life is not a dress rehearsal. Everyday, you should have at least one exquisite moment.” – Sally Karioth

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Influenced by the FIVE OF CUPS, TWO OF WANDS

Music: I Was Made To Love Her – Stevie Wonder, For Sure – Future Islands, JUNGLE – DillanPonders, Ruby Waters, Mood Ring – Lorde

It’s your birthday, sweet Virgo! And this month is reminding you of your greatest truths and biggest challenges. New experiences are waiting for you to choose them—to live more whole heartedly as the light we know you can be. You are our loyal ally, our smart and witty friend and our most giving partner. This is the time to release those shadow parts of you that keep you detached, pessimistic and neurotic. This birthday month is a big one for you, Virgo. It’s more important than ever for you to notice what you are saying aloud. What do you really want? What kind of partnership are you calling in, or what are you creating in the partnership you already have? What kind of creative project or client would take you to the next level? Don’t be afraid to see and say it exactly as you know you DESIRE. ALL of it. Know that your prayers are being answered now, so it is time for you to get really CLEAR on what you know and want. Those visions are REAL. And when you catch the judgment or blame come up, make yourself a money jar, throw in a buck, and pay it forward as a way to help you throw out those old dark clouds holding you back.

Final Thought: “Real generosity towards the future lies in giving all to the present.” – Albert Camus

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22)

Influenced by the QUEEN OF CUPS, THE FOOL RX

Music: Uproar – Lil Wayne, Swizz Beatz, Summertime Blues – Mono/Remastered 2001 – The Beach Boys, Love Is A Battlefield – Papoose, Give Me The Future – Bastille

There’s an electric quality around you now, Libra. You may even notice your electronics are going wild in reaction to your pizazz. This electricity is your sign to get innovative with life. This month, there is such an emphasis on you alone. You are integrating the masculine and feminine energies within in order for you to create in new ways. This integration is also going to enhance your relationships as well. But this month is for YOU—you to connect to both of those sides of yourself. You are understanding and seeing the blend of these energies in a way to feel even more yourself!! More of your divine feminine as well as your powerful masculine. There is less for you to figure out here and more for you to simply allow the amalgamation of. And as you allow, notice what you are drawn to create within yourself. From blending comes alchemy and force!

Final Thought: “I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it, but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes

SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Influenced by the NINE OF CUPS, ACE OF WANDS

Music: Ani Kuni – Edit – Polo & Pan, Bop – Masked Wolf, On A Cocoanut Island – Louis Armstrong, The Polynesians, Count on You – Banoffee

You see only truth this month, Scorpio. This is your superpower and your challenge. How can you be the true seer? This year has perhaps made you feel SO OFF your path… But guess what? September is bringing you back! Give yourself rest and recovery as you see that the right things are about to land and show you how RIGHT ON your path you’ve been! Choose to show up every day for yourself in spiritual rest. You can still do all your work and be supportive to others, but it means being so present in every moment, trusting there will be plenty of time for you to recover and rest for you! You can let all the dramas go. You can surrender all the I don’ts: I don’t have enough time, I don’t have enough resources, I don’t have enough help, I am not enough. THAT IS BEHIND YOU. You are plenty enough. September will remind you of this. Bask in the glow, in the synchronicities. Bask in being the MOST you you’ve ever been. It is through your unknowing that the pearl will be delivered to you.

Final Thought: “If I have been of service, if I have glimpsed more of the nature and essence of ultimate good, if I am inspired to reach wider horizons of thought and action, if I am at peace with myself, it has been a successful day.” – Alex Noble

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 19)

Influenced by the SIX OF CUPS RX, THE MOON

Music: True – Katie Ruvane, What Do You Want From Life – The Tubes, One – Amy Allen

Neptune is bringing you creative magical forces this month, Sag. She may also bring confusion. So now this is up to you to follow the mystical muse trying to lead you toward your creative gifts. Follow her. Let her show you more of what you want from life! Follow the joy and let go of her fear and confusion. Your heart can relax as you are led into the best meals you’ve ever tasted, the most beautiful art you’ve ever set your eyes on, the jubilant dances of angels calling to you in your dreams. Feel love for life and you will be shown how you can create the life you want. So go fall more in love with yourself. Make those crazy dinner plans. Go to where your heart sings. Get in your car and drive—drive until you feel the freedom and forget where you are going and where you’ve been. You’re going to be surprised at what lands for you. Because you couldn’t have made it all up in your mind. Wheeeeeeee!

Final Thought: “SERENDIPITY. Look for something, find something else, and realize that what you’ve found is more suited to your needs than what you thought you were looking for.” – Lawrence Block

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 – Jan 19)

Influenced by THE WORLD, THE FOOL RX

Music: It’s Been You – Mindchatter, Shower the People – James Taylor

Cappy! You are in between worlds now. In between lives now. In between cycles now. Feels a little psychedelic. Can you feel that? Can you trust this in between? There is nothing to choose now. There is nothing to decide. There is nothing and everything. So just be in the in between. This in between is here to cultivate your confidence for what is coming for you. It’s like you are about to go on stage front and center, and this is the part where you are surrounded by makeup artists, hairdressers, costume designers, food feeders, primpers and primers. Let your primper and primer angels do their work now. Your self-assurance is directly correlated to your ability to escape being a victim of your mind. Be in the feminine principle, immersion rather than domination. Less thinking and more feeling. Be present. Be in the in between!

Final Thought: “If you want your story to be magnificent, begin by realizing you are the author, and every day is a new page.” – Mark Houlahn

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)


Music: The Late Show – 2014 Remaster – Jackson Browne, Get Up – Mother Mother

There is a final clearing happening for you, Aquarius. Your work here is to continue seeing and knowing what your heart wants. And ironically, at the same time, giving up trying to figure out all the answers now. Open with relaxed expectations. There is strong creative energy around you—for a child, for creative projects, for YOU! There’s also a message here around your senses and how much stronger they are becoming. Perhaps you are feeling more, smelling stronger and seeing more in your dreams. You may even notice your spidey senses with your friends and family. Trust in what you are sensing but without needing to control it. AND FINALLY trust that sense when you want to say NO. Don’t let yourself be bullied into anything that doesn’t FEEL right to you. You can trust yourself even when you don’t know why or how to explain what you just know. TRUST that. TRUST THOSE SPIDEY SENSES. Your intuition and power is becoming stronger, so use it to see and CALL in exactly what you want!

Final Thought: “We are not the same people this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.” – W. Somerset Maugham

PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Music: Femme Like U (feat. Emma Peters) – Monaldin, Emma Peters, Still Got The Funk – Matthew Goodman, Matthew Bento, Feel So Good – Claire Guerreso, White Lies – S+C+A+R+R

You will become what your heart seeks, Pisces—try that on for size. Your legacy is showing up in the cards for September. But first, there must be a final healing before the legacy can become fully clear. What visibility are you striving for in this lifetime? What is your self-mastery? What do you just know in your bones is your potential? As you acknowledge all your heart is seeking, don’t be afraid to mourn the past of who you were. This mourning is part of the process. Community is screaming through here as well. What is your impact, and how is your community and the good of all part of why you are here? You are about to see the impact you can have there, so do not forget that is part of the Pisces story. Whether you are seen this way or not, you are a spiritual leader. Your example to others is becoming more and more important now. So use this power wisely because you could easily use it in a manipulating or controlling manner. Keep seeing the good, and keep viewing your legacy with purity and not ego.

Final Thought: “True wisdom lies in gathering the precious things out of each day as it goes by.” – E.S. Bouton
