Pisces September 2019

Chihuly Pisces

Your ruling planet, Jupiter, was in fine form last month as it turned direct in Sagittarius, the star sign at the peak of your horoscope.

Now’s the time to put more energy into your career and vocation, while Jupiter makes its last transit through this sector of your horoscope, until early December 2019.

Follow Your Dreams

This month, however, there’s another big event taking place, also involving Jupiter. This is the third and final Jupiter-Neptune square aspect of 2019, which takes place on the 21st. It first took place in January, then again in June and this is the last hoorah.

This is a huge deal for you because Jupiter and Neptune are co-rulers of your star sign, Pisces. They are both currently in their signs of rulership and therefore strong. Plus, they are lighting up not only your career and success sector but your personal sector too.

At its best, this combination is encouraging you to follow your dreams, to make the most of your potential and play big in life. Jupiter represents global connections, it rules the law, publishing and the media. Neptune has an artistic and creative vibe and is the planet most closely linked to compassion and charitable goals.

Put all this together and you could be in for an outstanding month when you get yourself noticed and then some. Both Jupiter and Neptune are extremely active in the first two weeks of September, from the 2nd until the 14th, the day of the Full Moon in your star sign, Pisces. If ever there was a time to believe anything’s possible, it’s now.

Partnership Goals

Jupiter and Neptune team up with the inner planets moving through Virgo in the first fortnight. Therefore, on the one hand, this suggests that your success comes either via other people or in partnership with other people. Certainly, you tend not to have the leading role when your opposite star sign, Virgo, dominates.

This could mean that your partner’s career or vocation is developing at a fast rate of knots. Or perhaps, you’re making a romantic move that brings with it more than love and connection. It could be a marriage – or business partnership – which improves your status and reputation. The peak of this activity comes during the emotional Full Moon on the 14th, which could bring your turn in the spotlight.

Stay Grounded

With all the slower-moving planets, you need to be aware of their flip side. For you, this means not taking on too much or promising more than you can deliver. Jupiter and Neptune together can be about overwhelm, being wildly optimistic but losing sight of reality.

This is something that as a Pisces you are susceptible to. If you’re true to your star sign, you have deep trust and faith in life and you pin your hopes on your dreams and wishes. What you need and sometimes lack is an ability to turn those dreams into reality, to put in the work to ensure they happen.

This is provided by your opposite star sign, Virgo, and we all have the ability to benefit from the positive traits of our opposite sign. Keep your feet on the ground, be realistic and pay attention to the details.

Adopt a hard-work ethic if you are busy and look after your mind, body and soul to support you in getting things done. Or, hand everything over to another person, a Virgo type, who can do this for you.

On the whole, September’s astrology looks uplifting and exhilarating, if you step beyond the hype and avoid being fooled or seduced. Keep the momentum going while you have Jupiter strong in Sagittarius.

Balance & Flow

Mid-month, there’s a shift in planetary energy as the social planets, Mercury and Venus, change star sign. They leave behind Virgo and move into air sign, Libra. This feels more balanced for you and helps restore harmony.

When it comes to your personal and professional relationships, pay attention to the practicalities, deal with money matters and use your people skills to charm and persuade others.

The Sun joins the inner planets in Libra on the 23rd, the day of the Equinox. Plus, five days later, on the 28th, there’s a New Moon in Libra, a symbol of new beginnings. There’s a flow of energy here with regard to money, joint finances and shared resources. Get your accounts in order and be open to gifts and cash flow coming in.

Jupiter is also active during this period in a good way. It teams up with Mercury on the 24th and Venus on the 8th, the day of the New Moon. A partnership could pay off big time during this period. Any contract or alliance that begins in the last week of the month is likely to do well.

Moving On

Finally, one of the slower-moving planets, Saturn, switches direction this month on the 18th. This is an important planetary shift. This is because Saturn turned retrograde on April 30th. Ever since, Saturn has been in retreat next to the karmic South Node.

This has all been happening in Capricorn and your group sector. You may have been moving away from a set of friends during this period or cut ties with a group you were previously involved in. Notice what happens on or around the 18th and again on the 28th when Saturn finally parts company from the South Node.

This could signify an important turning point in a friendship or your role within a group. You might be ready to move out of your comfort zone and step in to a position of leadership. Or perhaps, you’re ready to release and let go an association that hasn’t served you well. It will be personal to you. Know that the time is right to put one foot in front of the other and move on determinedly.

Aquarius September 2019

As September begins, the inner planets are lined up in the earth sign, Virgo. Virgo represents one of the trickier sectors of your horoscope.

On the one hand, this is about financial transactions and shared resources. On the other hand, it represents all that’s hidden, including fears and taboo subjects.

Shift Your Mindset

Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the planet of the mind, so take care that you don’t allow your mind to control you, especially in the first two weeks of September. If you are going through a challenging time, take charge and do what you can to restore order.

Writing things down or journalling could be helpful. Or, make a list of the things that need to be done if you’re feeling overwhelmed. Money fears are never easy to deal with. Do what you can to move away from an attitude of scarcity towards hope and faith and belief that things will turn out well in the end. It might help to be diligent about taking on good practices or rituals, including prayer, gratitude and exercises that help to shift your mindset.

Money Moves

Yet, always with astrology, the symbolism doesn’t play out the same way for everyone. For some of you, the plethora of planets in Virgo could coincide with good money moves. You might be selling a property, for example, that creates more cash flow. Or, join forces with family to make your resources go further.

As Virgo is one of the earth signs, this could include harvesting food from an allotment or similar. Certainly, it’s a good time to be resourceful and look at what you can create or produce that benefits you or that you can sell on.

Two other key planets are involved in the lively activity in the first fortnight. They are Jupiter, God of the sky, and Neptune, God of the sea. These two boundless planets make their third and final square aspect of the year on the 21st. They first came together in January and again in June.

Jupiter in Sagittarius rules your friends and group activities; it’s about your social, political or humanitarian alliances and represents your hopes and wishes for the future.

Neptune in Pisces rules your personal money, your possessions, your values and self-worth. Put the two together and you might be involved in a charity or fundraising event. Or, you may be looking at ways to raise money for a group challenge or big adventure.

Plus, in the first two weeks of September, Jupiter and Neptune combine with the planets in Virgo from the 2nd to the 14th, the day of the Full Moon. At its best, this combination enables you to believe anything’s possible and that miracles can happen. You could even receive a gift during this period and the timing feels like a miracle.

It is important, however, to keep your feet on the ground and pay attention to the small print, especially if you’re in the process of signing or sealing a deal or contract. The same goes if you’re involved in a legal case or financial deal. Double check the facts and figures, get an accountant involved or the right kind of expert.

The danger with Neptune is that what seems real could prove illusory. The flip side of Neptune is a scam or untrustworthy individuals. Get any promises in writing and don’t loan your money without a guarantee that it will be returned with interest. The light of the full Moon on the 14th will shine a light on who you can and can’t trust, which deals to pursue and which to forego.

The Bigger Picture

Life feels a whole lot easier for you after the 14th. This is the day when both social Mercury and love planet Venus move into Libra, a fellow air sign. Finally, you’re back in the realm of logic and rationality when you can work things out strategically, rather than have to rely on intuition.

Libra rules travel and study in your horoscope, the bigger picture of life. You may be you madly raising funds to go away, to have a big adventure. The second half of the month is ideal for expanding your horizons and increasing your knowledge. Stimulate your curiosity in life and step out of your routine. Actively engage with people and events that are different and inspiring.

The Sun enters Libra on the 23rd, the day of the Equinox. And, five days later, there’s a New Moon in Libra, a symbol of new beginnings. This New Moon is ideal for setting off on a trip or signing up to a course.

In true Aquarius style, you won’t want to do everything on your own. On the 24th and 28th, Jupiter is back in action and this time in flowing, easy planetary aspects. Get your friends together or join in with a group of people and you’ll have a whale of a time.

Do whatever takes your fancy; do your bit for society and the world or go and experience distant horizons. Love too could be part of the picture and the reason why you’re ready to spread your wings.

Letting Go

Finally, this month, your traditional ruling planet, Saturn, changes direction on the 18th. Saturn turned retrograde at the end of April. Since then, Saturn has been in retreat alongside the karmic South Node.

This takes place in Capricorn and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. Therefore, events this month could signify a turning point, letting go of a bad habit or something that no longer serves you. It might be a decision to stop fear holding you back or to release a personal situation that belongs in the past.

Whatever it means for you, now’s the time to put one foot in front of the other and keep moving forwards. By 2020, you’re going to be in a very different place and it’s the preparations you make now that will create all the difference.

Capricorn Horoscope September 2019

Chihuly Capricorn
Chihuly Art – Kew Gardens

Earth signs dominate this month which is great news for you as your star sign, Capricorn, is one of them. You’re in your element when you’re taking steady steps towards your long-term goals.

Your zodiac symbol, the mountain goat, is a great ambassador for your sign of Capricorn. Resilient and determined, it leaps its way from rock to rock until it conquers the mountain.

Long Term Goals

It’s not a bad idea to have a similar mentality to the sturdy mountain goat this month because long-term goals are definitely foreground for you. This is because of the plethora of planets in Virgo and the sector of your horoscope which rules travel, study and the bigger picture.

This combination is full on for the first two weeks of September. If you’re travelling or studying during this period, you’re in tune with your stars. It’s also a good time to be looking ahead to next year’s holiday or a trip away. If you’re a typical Capricorn, you like to know what’s happening when, sometimes more than one year in advance.

The inner planets and the Sun also team up with your ruling planet, Saturn, during the first two weeks. The key dates to note are the 1st, 5th, 6th and 9th. This is great for finalising plans and bringing your best self to your projects, plans and ideas. You can make the right decisions or take on a leading role. This might mean you’re planning a big trip for a group of friends or leading a course of study.

Pushing Back Boundaries

There’s real excitement and buzz during this period, thanks to the slower-moving planets, Jupiter and Neptune. On the 21st, these two planets make their third and final encounter during 2019. They first came together in January, then again in June and this is their last hoorah.

Jupiter is in Sagittarius and the most inner sector of your horoscope. For some of you Capricorns, this could be about your spiritual path, your beliefs or your religion. Whereas, Neptune is in Pisces and the sector of your horoscope which rules communication, your community, your ideas.

Put the two together and this is a questioning combination for you. You’re willing to explore new dimensions, to go beyond the everyday and push back the boundaries of reality. Plus, in the first two weeks of the month, Jupiter and Neptune team up with all the planets in Virgo.

This is a heady combination that’s encouraging you to take a big leap, follow your dreams or find your calling. This might be linked to publishing, the media or the Law. It’s the time to have hope and faith in what you’re involved in, whether this is to do with your work and career or a project that helps your community in some way.

The key to your success is to be true to your earth sign roots. Don’t take on too much, don’t get overly carried away and keep your feet on the ground. Deal with the practicalities at the same time as nurturing your dreams. Ensure you can deliver what you promise.

This planetary activity peaks at the Full Moon on the 14th, which does feel emotional this month. You may be worn out and ready for a rest. You might be keen to leave behind the everyday and run off and escape somewhere different, to the sea or countryside. Either way, it’s a time to release and let go and shift gear. Moving forwards, you need a different pace.

One word of caution is to double check the facts of what you’re dealing with this month. Read the small print, ensure you have insurance or that your visa is going to arrive on time. Neptune is a seductive, elusive influence. Don’t let things slip and use your earthy intuition to decide who you can and can’t trust.

Career Moves

The 14th is the turning point because on this day, the social planets, Mercury and Venus, change star sign and enter Libra. Libra is one of the air signs, so logic and rationality return. It’s less about feeling your way forwards and more about working things out strategically.

Libra is your career and vocation sector, ruling your status and reputation. If you’re away on holiday the first two weeks of September, you’re wise to ensure you’re back at your desk or available from the 14th onwards.

Work your connections in the second half of the month as this is where you can make progress or get ahead of the rest of the pack. Then, when the Sun enters Libra on the 23rd, the day of the Equinox, you’ll be more than ready to maximise your chances.

Plus, five days later, there’s a New Moon in Libra on the 28th, an ideal date to send off a job application or ask for a promotion. New beginnings abound during the New Moon period.

Jupiter is also involved during the last week of September and this feels lucky for you, on the 24th and 28th, the day of the New Moon. You might hear good news via a third party; you may be celebrating a win for your partner or perhaps a gift comes your way.

Onwards

The most important turning point of the month, however, involves your planet Saturn. Saturn has been retrograde since April 30th and on the 18th of this month, Saturn turns direct. Saturn has been in retreat moving alongside the karmic South Node, not always easy.

You may have been struggling during this period, especially if your birthday falls between January 4th to 11th. Or perhaps, you’ve been working through a challenging personal situation. You can be stuck in your comfort zone when you’re in South Node territory or find you revert to a bad habit or something it’s hard to let go of.

By the 28th, Saturn takes its leaves of the South Node and moves determinedly onwards. It doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve shaken off the fear you’ve been feeling but it does mean you know you’re ready to prove your commitment, your self-discipline, your resilient mountain goat nature. You can see the top of the mountain once again – onwards!

Sagittarius Horoscope September 2019

Jupiter & Opportunity

Your ruling planet, Jupiter, continues to be one of the main players this month, as it was last month.

Most importantly for you, Jupiter is now direct in your star sign, Sagittarius and moving swiftly forwards. You’re wise to make the most of this positive, forward-moving influence until early December when Jupiter moves on.

Jupiter represents growth and opportunity. It’s the planet linked to travel, study and spreading your wings. At its best, Jupiter promises abundance, gifts and lucky occurrences. It’s also associated with religion, publishing, media and the Law.

The more you can adopt a feel-good attitude to life and the more you believe anything’s possible, then Jupiter kicks in and enhances your chances.

This month, there’s an added factor to Jupiter’s expansive nature. This is a square aspect between Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces, down at the base of your horoscope. These two major planets first came together in January and again in June of this year. They meet this month on the 21st and it’s their final encounter.

Together, the Jupiter/Neptune combination feels sentimental and emotional. You may feel drawn back towards your past, whether you’re delving into your family tree or revisiting the place of your childhood.

Career Goals, Mission & Purpose

Yet, this month, you’re certainly not stuck in the past because of what’s happening in the first two weeks of September. This is when all the inner planets, including the Sun, are in Virgo, the star sign at the peak of your horoscope.

Virgo rules your career and vocation, your status and reputation. It’s about your future path in life. This stellium of planets could mean you’re exceptionally busy right now and hopefully, doing exceedingly well. Virgo rules writing, so this might be about a book or media column.

Virgo is the star sign of order and strategy, so get on top of your job, your projects, the next stage in your life. Journalling could help you find clarity now. Create a strong team around you. You can’t do it all on your own, whatever your current goal.

All the planets moving through Virgo encounter Jupiter and Neptune from the 2nd to the 14th, the day of the Full Moon. At its best, this combination promises huge success, a calling, a chance to follow your dreams. Jupiter and Neptune have a boundless quality, they’re expansive and revelatory.

You need to have hope and faith when these two kick in order to tap in to the entrepreneurial side of your nature. It’s about risk-taking, a big vision and a belief that you’ll succeed, whatever your chosen goal.

There is always a proviso with the slower-moving planets and, for you, it’s about keeping your feet on the ground. Also, read the small print if you’re involved in a big deal or promotion. Don’t take on too much, otherwise you’ll quickly become overwhelmed. Balance realistic goals with idealistic dreams and ensure you have a way to deliver what you promise.

This whole combination feels charitable and generous. You could be on a mission in life as a strong purpose for change and progress guides you forwards. What you want to achieve might not be for your own ends but tap in to something greater. Virgo is ultimately the sign of service to others and helping to create a better world.

Do be careful of being seduced or losing touch with reality during the first half of September and especially around the Full Moon on the 14th. With a dominance of planets in earth signs, it’s about making the right moves that are based on common sense, rather than getting carried away by hype or unrealistic goals.

You do have Mars, the action planet, in Virgo all month so if things go pear-shaped early in September, don’t give up. Keep on track with your long-term goals. This is also important around the 18th, when there’s another important planetary movement.

Money Rules

This time it involves Saturn, the taskmaster of the heavens, which turns direct in Capricorn and your personal money sector. Saturn’s been retrograde, i.e. on go slow since April 30th and has been in retreat alongside the karmic South Node. In fact, it’s only on the 28th of this month that the two finally part company.

This suggests some kind of release or letting go. You may be ditching a debt or moving away from a bad habit. Perhaps, you’re putting new plans in place that help strengthen your financial situation moving forwards. The key with planets in earth signs is not to seek out overnight success but sign up to the long-term sensible option.

People Skills

Also, there’s a shift mid-month, as the personal planets begin to move in to social Libra from the 14th onwards. Mercury and Venus are the first to change star sign hand-in-hand. This period of the month could be peak for love, whether you meet someone at work or through your social life.

Libra rules friends and group activities and you may feel less stressed or under pressure from mid-September onwards. The balance shifts from work to play. Or, at least, a healthier work/life balance.

The peak of the Libra activity comes after the 23rd, the day of the Equinox, when the Sun enters Libra, heralding a change of season. Five days later, there’s a New Moon in Libra, a symbol of new beginnings. Plus, your planet Jupiter is in lovely connection with Mercury on the 24th and Venus on the 28th, the day of the New Moon.

This all adds up to gorgeous connections in real life. Friends who inspire you, promote you, uplift you or vice versa. Use your people skills to the max as September comes to a close and charm your way into a new group or network.

Community & Connections

Your ruling planet, Mars, is moving through earth sign Virgo all month. Virgo rules your friends and group activities, your social, political and humanitarian alliances. It’s about your community and how you fit in to the world.

Earth signs dominate this month and for you, this is about people and connections. If you’re a typical Scorpio, you tend to favour your own company but September’s calling you out, back into the world.

If you want to improve your social life, the first two weeks of September are the time to launch yourself in to new activities. There’s a flurry of planetary activity in Virgo, urging you to reach out, connect and recharge your friendships. It’s a top month to get involved in your local community or find a way to help others and make a difference.

Your co-ruler, Pluto, is also in an earth sign, Capricorn, and this is about communication and finding your voice. You may be writing more than usual as Virgo is the sign linked to writing, ruled by Mercury, planet of communication. You may not want to be overly social. Instead, you’re seeking to find a way to connect online or share your thoughts in a different context.

It could be an exceptionally busy month too, juggling different connections, networks, ideas and projects. Again, it’s the first two weeks of the month that are liveliest.

Pluto, your co-ruler, teams up with the inner planets, Venus and Mercury on the 7th and 9th and the Sun on the 13th. These dates could prove magical for you, because Pluto at its best represents personal transformation.

If you’re a typical Scorpio, you like in to go in deep, analysing your own motives and other people on a deep level. Some of the connections you make this month could be extremely powerful, for you or them. This might be a relationship with a coach, therapist or influencer. Or perhaps, you’re the one stepping up your game.

The key date for you is the 19th, when your co-rulers, Mars and Pluto, come together in the earth element. The connections you make this month could be lasting. Earth signs are in it for the long run and don’t give up easily.

Stretching Your Comfort Zone

At times, you may need to dig deep to find your inner strength, your discipline and your commitment to your future path. Events on or around the 18th may prove significant in this respect. This is the date when Saturn, the taskmaster of the heavens, turns direct after five months retrograde.

Saturn switched direction on April 30th. Ever since, it’s been in retreat alongside the karmic South Node. Saturn turns direct on the 18th of this month and by the 28th starts to pull away from the South Node. This may be something that’s been holding you back, perhaps fear or doubt.

Or perhaps, you recognise that you’ve been in your comfort zone, not wanting to stretch outside of it. You may be ready to break through a block or obstacle or leave an attitude or person behind. Keep this symbolism in mind towards the second half of September.

It’s about your voice, the way you communicate, the way you connect. It might be about a book you’re writing, a job you’re pursuing or a campaign you’re backing. A new level of commitment may be required.

Attracting Luck & Abundance

There is plenty of joy to be found this month, thanks to the Jupiter-Neptune square which is exact on the 21st. Jupiter in Sagittarius boosts your personal money sector, your values and self-worth. Neptune in Pisces lights up your romance sector, your creativity, play, your children and the things in life that you produce or ‘give birth to’.

This combination is boundless. It was strong in January and again in June and this is the third and final encounter of these two planets. At their best, they imbue you with hope and faith, with a love of life, a feeling that anything’s possible. This would be a good month to practise the Law of Attraction, to believe in abundance, generosity and freedom of spirit.

There may be times, especially early in September, when you lose your way or flip from feeling hopeful to feeling hopeless. You may compare yourself unfavourably when you hear other people’s stories or feel left out of a circle of friends.

This planetary activity peaks at the time of the Full Moon on the 14th. This promises romance for you or a chance to release and let go of emotions that don’t serve you. The ability to distinguish between reality and illusion will help you during this period.

Take care that you’re not seduced or fooled with Neptune strong. Instead, dive in to realms that inspire you, find an escape route from the everyday that heals and uplifts you. This may be a spiritual path or seeking out beauty in the world.

Rest & Repose

On the 14th, Venus and Mercury move hand in hand in to Libra and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. This brings with it a chance to restore balance and harmony in your life, to leave behind the busy start to September and to stop comparing yourself to others – if you have been.

The Sun moves into Libra on the 23rd, the day of the Equinox, heralding a change in season. Five days later, there’s a New Moon in Libra on the 28th. Seek out a more peaceful way of life during Libra season, whether for you this means rest and retreat or prioritising close and intimate relationships. If you’re a typical Scorpio, you enjoy 1-to-1’s more than big social gatherings.

Look after yourself well in mind, body and spirit. Seek balance and harmony within you. The 24th and 28th promise abundance. This may be financial or emotional or a gift that uplifts you, whether spiritual or personal.

Libra Horoscope September 2019

Chihuly Libra
Chihuly Art – Kew Gardens

As September begins, all the inner planets are in earth sign Virgo, including your ruling planet, Venus. This area of the zodiac is particularly lively until mid-September, the 14th, and the day of the Full Moon.

Inner Work

Traditionally, when the Sun is in this sector of your horoscope, it’s a time for rest and retreat. Inner work is recommended and you’re going through a phase where you’re caring for yourself or other people. This year, however, it’s a busier vibe and this can mean different things, depending on your current situation.

Firstly, you might find that your inner voice is exceptionally busy and your mind is working overtime. This could be because you’re dealing with a heavy workload and you have a lot of different elements of your life that you’re trying to juggle effectively.

Or perhaps, you’re currently preparing for a new stage in life and this is causing you some worry or concern, because you’re heading into the unknown. If you find yourself becoming overly anxious, it’s wise to find a way to stop and slow down, to quieten your mind. Nature is one way of restoring calm and balance, ensuring you take regular exercise or you head for the countryside.

Some of you may be studying or be busy with research or planning. Virgo is one of the studious signs of the zodiac ruled by Mercury, the planet of the mind. You could be squirrelled away getting ready for a busy project or being out in the public eye.

Overwhelm

There are a couple of reasons why this period doesn’t feel particularly slow or measured. Firstly, because there are so many planets vying for attention in Virgo. Secondly, because of the Jupiter-Neptune square which triggers the inner planets in Virgo.

The Jupiter-Neptune square is exact on the 21st but it’s evident from the start of September up until the Full Moon on the 14th. You may notice it in particular on the 2nd and 4th of the month, when you planet Venus interacts with these two great Gods.

Both Jupiter and Neptune are boundless planets. They take you out into the world, they expand your horizons and broaden your mind and outlook. Jupiter is in Sagittarius and your communication and study sector. Also, your neighbourhood and community. Neptune is in Pisces and your work and health sector, influencing your routine, your lifestyle and your time management.

Together, they can feel exciting and exhilarating, i.e. if you have lots of new projects on the go or you’re busy in your local community. However, they can create a feeling of overwhelm or exaggeration. This may not be a particularly settled period for you when you find it hard to remain calm or ground yourself. You have too much on your plate. Or perhaps, you’re worrying due to a lack of work or ill-health.

The peak of this planetary activity takes place on the 14th, the day of the Full Moon. Full Moons can be a time of release and letting go and this Full Moon feels that way for you. Also, on the same day, your planet, Venus, enters your star sign, Libra, along with Mercury, the planet of communication.

Restoring Balance

This is the start of a more balanced and harmonious period. Perhaps, you have more time for socialising. You’re looking after people less and enjoying yourself more. The focus turns towards your personal goals and aims, your image and profile. Venus is the planet of beauty. When she’s in your star sign, you find yourself being popular or the star of the show.

It would be an ideal time to look after your appearance, go shopping for new clothes or think about the way you come across to others. If you’re starting a new job or role in life, how do you want to look, how do you want to be seen?

In the second half of September, it’s important that you put yourself first and do more of what you love. If you’re a true Libra, sometimes you put other people’s needs before your own. One of your life lessons is learning to say No and do what you want instead.

Boosting Your Spirits

The astrology continues to boost your well-being and lift your spirits as the Sun enters your star sign, Libra, on the 23rd. The Sun represents vitality and warmth and its move through your star sign not only heralds your birthday month but adds confidence and energy to the mix.

It’s your signal to get back out into the world if you’ve been tucked away. Show off your talents and skills, let other people see what you have to offer. Be true to who you are and win over other people.

The Sun’s move into Libra is the day of the Equinox and the change of season. It’s an important event in astrology. Plus, not long after the Equinox, there’s a New Moon in Libra on the 28th, a symbol of new beginnings. This is the ideal date to set your intentions, not only for the month ahead but the year ahead as well. It’s your personal New Year.

Jupiter is active around this time and any celebrations or social get-together are likely to be great fun, especially on the 24th and 28th. With Venus in your star sign for the second half of September, love is a dominant theme. If you’re looking for love, this is the time to get out and about more than usual. If you’re in love, create time to talk and connect with your partner.

Moving On

Finally, this month there could be a definitive move at home or within your family as Saturn turns direct in Capricorn and this sector of your horoscope on the 18th. This brings about a turning point, a forward motion and a move away from your comfort zone. You may still feel fear but you’re ready to step through your fear. Don’t let the past hold you back and create strong foundations in your own life.

As Saturn picks up pace, it leaves behind the karmic South Node. These two entities have been side by side since April 30th when Saturn turned retrograde. It takes determination to move on, to put one foot in front of the other. The theme of release and letting go continues on this month’s New Moon, the 28th.
