Your September (Hair)oscopes Are Here!

BY Veronica McCarthy

Do you follow your monthly horoscope? Do you enjoy talking about all things hair care-related? Yes? Then you’re going to love our monthly (hair)oscopes! At the beginning of each month, our resident hairstylist/astrologer Dylan Chavles will look to the cosmos to reveal what the month has in store for both you and your hair. See what lies ahead for your love life, career, potential new haircut, and more below!


Virgo, happy birthday! Mars is in your sign all month, which is music to your ears, as you’ll have an extra boost from the universe to get EVERYTHING done logistically.  This is the month of fine-tuning, organizing, and finessing (all of your favorite actives)! Venus also creeps into your sign in September, giving you a fantastic opportunity to really hone in on your self-care regime.  The planet that rules love and beauty in your sign makes for a plush and successful regiment. Just make sure you get yourself a softening shampoo and conditioner combo to keep your hair luxe after the gym!  


Libra! You charming diplomat, you. This is your month, but it won’t feel like it until mid-September. You may have found yourself nesting or being anti-social for the last month, but come around the 18th, it’s your time to let go of the breaks and venture out into the world. It is best at this time to connect with your inner balance and not tip the scales too much in your relationships, finances, or career. In other words, don’t splurge on a bunch of products out of impulse; focus on what you need instead. This is essentially your mantra for the month: balance, balance, balance!


Take a breath! Pluto and Mercury have gone direct! The Pluto retrograde should have brought up issues regarding self-esteem, so your primary goal this month should be YOU! Your lesson for the month? Do what feels true to you. If you want to channel your inner risk-taker now would be a good time to let her come out and play. Whatever you’ve been repressing for fear of judgment should be hung out to dry. Relationships that no longer serve you will take a turn and you’ll discover parts of yourself that were waiting to emerge! This month, just go for it—specifically that new hair color that you’ve been secretly dying to try!  


Okay, okay, so you’ve got three planets (Chiron, Neptune, and Uranus) all retrograde lining up in your second, third and fourth houses. It may APPEAR (keyword there being “appear”) as though your optimism regarding finances, security, and communication are dwindling. But hang tight! It’s not necessarily real. The channeling of these three energies can be put to good use in aligning you with your own truths and not what society made for you. The New Moon on September 14th aids in your construction of the more aware you. It is the perfect month to experiment with different healing practices and rituals. Maybe take yourself to the beach on the New Moon and set an intention spell. Afterward, you can draw yourself a nice, warm bath with your favorite bubbles or bath salts and just relax


Light your fire! You have the fiery Aries Moon highlighting your relationships and creativity this month. You can use all of this energy to get in tune with what you really want out of relationships and explore any issues which you have been waiting on the wings to address. You have the power! If you’re single, you could be meeting that certain someone in the coming months, it all depends on what you do to find your other half. Make sure you’re taking yourself to the spa, getting that manicure you’ve been needing and that trim you’ve been putting off. Moral of this story? You look your best, you feel your best, you attract the best. 


Saturn is transiting your sixth house of work goals and service. You’ve heard the old saying “ in order to keep, you must give.” This should be your mantra for the month. Being of service strengthens our self-esteem and the way we navigate in the world. Have a friend who is going through a hard time? This might be the month you give them a boost with a little hair care package you’ve made for them with all of their favorite products. Don’t want to break the bank? Take your friend or loved one on a hike or to the park. Anything to be outside and get the serotonin rolling. Just make sure you pack some sunscreen (for both your skin and hair)!


Got to have faith! George Michael was onto something and so are you. Something deep within you is calling for a new creative force and the only thing you have to do is listen! This is a month for reflection and searching. What you dream could be just around the bend, but it requires your inner attention and awareness. Creativity is being highlighted and the only way to get there is channeling the divine. Read, listen to your favorite records, meditate, or create any practice that keeps you in line with the force. I’m going to nix any Yoda reference here as he’s not the best hair model. Still, you get my point.


Aries! Start September off with something creative and fun while the moon passes through your sign.  This is the perfect time to start actualizing a new project you’ve been manifesting. Take all of that fire and get it out in the world! Simultaneously, the Sun and Mars will be entering your house of work and service, shining a light on your desire to desperately change in some capacity.  Have you been feeling a career shift lately? Or maybe you’re feeling the need to totally revamp your look? The planetary alignment at the end of September will give you the extra push you need. Want to roll the dice and tell your hairdresser “do whatever you want?” Go for it! September is begging you to throw caution to the wind!


Taurus, self-love is in the air for you this month as your ruling planet Venus nestles herself into your house of family matters and home.  September is the perfect month for you to feel comfortable (your absolute fav). It’s time to focus on fine-tuning your living quarters. You are your best self when you feel completely grounded and secure with your living situation. Take the time to deep clean, redecorate, paint the walls, and treat yourself to that new kitchen device you’ve been hesitating to buy.  And while you’re at it, I would suggest taking this time to perfect your top knot skills. Something tells me it’s going to come in handy this month.


Gemini, time to pull on the emergency brake! You’ve been on fire all summer, and your Sun and Mars are shining a bright light on home and family matters. You’ve been burning the candle at both ends and it’s time for you to sit down with yourself and reflect on what you need deep down. Take a tip from a fellow Taurean and learn how to have fun making your home a sanctuary.  Be honest with what you need this month and make it happen. Do you need to juggle everyone’s problems as well as your own? No. If you’re going to partake in any balancing acts this month, I suggest a pH balancing shampoo.


Dear Cancer, I know you don’t like to shake things up, but this month you will.  The Sun, Mars, and Jupiter are transiting your house of communication, which means whatever artist block you’ve been weighed down by will be lifted.  Take this breath of fresh air to get a successful start on anything creative you’ve been hesitant about. This is also the perfect month for changes in your habits in appearance.  Never go out on a Wednesday? Give it shot, you might love it. Always wanted a haircut too short to tie into a ponytail? Now is the time to do it!


Leo, I know you’re always ready to show the world who you are, and September is the perfect month to debut a new side of your artistic self.  You’ll be able to channel this energy into your work environment, so think about how you can apply your new creative endeavor to something that gets you paid!  Speaking of getting paid, the universe is asking you to heed caution with your finances. Instead of buying 10 hair products from a discount bin that you’ll never use, invest in one solid leave-in treatment that leaves your hair supple, your bathroom shelf clutter-free, and your bank account thankful.
