September 2011 Astrocast
By Gwynne Mayer
September will begin with some new things in sight or some old things coming to fruition. It depends on how much you have investigated and found new perceptions and ways of coming to terms with success, failure or health issues. Some things you set in motion and slowed down in August will now be full throttle and there will be a need to plan ahead. Jupiter will turn retrograde in Taurus which will slow that sign down a bit, but not to worry as the planet is there for benefits and exaggerations so it might help to discipline one's beliefs at this juncture. Planets retrograde only means that it is an internal process rather than an external process, so it is a chance to look to one's inner beliefs about oneself. We are still watching the Saturn in Libra connection and how that seems to force the cardinal signs, Libra, Aries, Cancer and Capricorn to make decisions and not sit on the fence. Uranus is retrograde in the early degrees of Aries which really upends the Aries personalities and gives them the itch that they can't seem to scratch. Pluto turns direct in Capricorn, early degrees and still is playing havoc with the early Cappy's. The New Moon cycle this month began August 28th and forces us to look at some new energy on the horizon; another New Moon on the 27th of September will give us a jolt as well, toward the initiation of activities. The Full Moon on the 12th of September will need some restful meditative time-allowing for dreams to be worked with and examined. . When we look at monthly horoscopes, we have to take into account how Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are also configuring into each of the signs. Remember when reading your horoscope, to read your Ascendant first, Moon second, and Sun third in the forecast for this month as all three play important roles in your personal life.

Aries --- Aries is undergoing a reevaluation of talents and money making ideas at this point. Times are changing fast for this sign and one must be in good shape to keep up. It is like running a mental marathon at this juncture. While Jupiter is making its transit in your second solar house, it is time to decide what monies should be set aside and how you are planning for your retirement or at least for times when money is not flowing too freely, or it will flow right through your fingers never to be found again. There are many surprise meetings that occur and they can be somewhat synchronistic and foretell your future in a way. You can thank the dear planet Uranus for this as it seems unsettling at times, but change needs to happen and it is for the best. Watch the people you partner with or at least 'say' you partner with as they may be going through a whole series of issues that are affecting the partnership and you are not privy to this information. Trust your senses on this as it is not easy to understand as Saturn makes its transit in your house of partnerships. Don't be projecting all of your worries and concerns on your partners because they have their own baggage to work with and can't carry yours as well. Play it by ear and just be alerted to these factors. This month is about tying up loose ends and getting on with plans you started making in July and now need to have some structure behind them.
Taurus --- The Taurus is going through a great period of time when it seems that situations are turning out for the best and dreams are coming true…..this is all IF the finances have been taken care of and disciplines are in place to assure a realistic evaluation of your assets. Situations at home need to take priority right now and making sure everyone is on the same page in taking care of matters in that department. Your work place, office, should be well organized and schedules should be made so that you protect your boundaries and aren't at the whims of your clients or others in your work environment. Do not take on their disorganization and their lack of priority setting. This will cause your business to fail and your willingness to cooperate cannot include organizing for someone else. If you are the owner of your own business, then you might find that you are working alone and/or need to let go of someone who is dragging you down. You have been assuming things that might not be true and so an awakening in the area of your spiritual beliefs and the basic psychology might need to be tweaked. You might need to take a true accounting of all that you have contributed to your life and to the lives of those close to you. It is time to give back in a big way, to check in with those who have cared about you and arrange something that can balance the scales between giving and taking. The time is now!
Gemini --- Gemini's are seeing past life situations with partners and with those who find a karmic pattern that is working its way into your relationships. Pay attention to listening these days so that you will be more conscientious and able to rise to the occasion should you have to give advice or counsel to an emergency someone is having. You might even feel that your siblings are in need of counsel so again a past life relationship with a sibling may be up for you to notice these days. Be sure to speak your piece when telling the truth as you see it and you will also be the recipient of someone close to you who is giving some good advice. You might want to look more deeply in your well of talents and see if something is missing in your communications or the way you communicate. You might be looking at doing something differently in the way of career these days. You will find that your mind keeps changing as people offer up different ideas, considering your talents thus far. You are a great communicator so this should all work in your favor. Your patience might be dwindling a bit, however your disciplines are good so this will help you see your projects to the end. Remember that partnerships should be equal on a monetary level and you will get your 50% only if you demand it. You don't have to pick up the tab for others, especially partnerships.
Cancer --- Cancer is undergoing many changes in the area of partnerships and connections with intimate others. Family matters are changing and some 'letting go' is necessary in order to keep your peace of mind and assure your future without 'drama' and 'neurosis'. You are a very sensitive person. However times have been confusing in 'matters of the heart' most recently. There may have been some major changes in career moves. You will find that it is time to bite the bullet and add more responsibilities to your already full schedule. You also might be more willing to accept promotions that come your way, as well as pay raises in the next three months. You are a hard worker, but tend to not toot your own horn, so the time is now to step up and let others know you are on the front lines and are willing to do your part. Your home may need some improvements or you might even be thinking of a move. This is important to look at as your home status says everything about your emotional stability as the two are interconnected in every way. Don't wear your feelings on your sleeve and let others know the depth of those feelings so you can move ahead. Keep in touch with friends and those who might be guiding you along the way. You need the support.
Leo --- Leos are very busy these days with many 'irons in the fire'. Your magnetism and attraction are helping add to your money making abilities. You must learn to save money in the next few months so that the holidays will be special and you will have enough to make that true for you and your family. What you do with your money during the month of September will have long range effects by the first of 2012. Don't think of spending money you don't have at this point. Leos love to live well and tend to spend according to their 'wishes' and not their 'needs'. There is a difference, you know? It is time to pay special attention to exercise and diet and make sure that you are getting plenty of protein and greens in your every day eating habits. You might develop some allergies in the next few months if you are not eating according to your disciplines. Make sure you are getting your affectionate needs met so that you don't over indulge on sugar to make up for the lack of affection. You have been somewhat confused as to intimate needs in relationships as the partners are not fawning over you lately, however this is good for you to see what you need to come up with in the areas of attention 'given'. It is time to put your work habits in place and find a delicate balance between work, play and rest. Your sleep habits may be restless lately and that is because your dreams are working over time. Pay attention to your spiritual guidance in dreams so that you have a way of noting what is important during your waking hours to manifest your intentions.
Virgo --- Virgo start out the month under the influence of the New Moon and this definitely gives them a head start to 'get the message and go with it'. It seems as if all situations are becoming apparent and the opportunities to finish up old business and begin anew are in front of you to begin your quest. Don't fret over situations that have not proved worthy of your attention. You are accurate in your assessments and do not need to belabor the issues under any circumstances. You do not have to work hard to be a person of integrity and honesty; you have those wonderful qualities about you and now feel into the opportunity to capture your goals, intentions and wishes as they come forward with great speed. Be sure that you don't criticize yourself in a needless manner, just trust that you are on the right path and stay true to your instincts and ambitions. Your environment should be peaceful and serene and this should give you ample opportunity to get your sacred space in shape to meditate and dream the dreams that will open up new worlds in the immediate future. Follow your instincts and remember that you are not lead so much by your head; your heart has the key.
Libra --- Libra is being forced to move at a faster pace than ever before and also has the 'brakes' on, creating more and more internal pressure. Time moves slowly when you want things in a hurry, but think of all the times you procrastinated or got out of touch with your priorities. Now you must 'pay the piper' for your indecisiveness. It is important to announce to a partner, or intimate 'other' what you really want in the relationship so that you get your needs met. Remember that it is a two way street and you must also come forward with your part of the relationship. You are trying to balance your budget and stay within a certain limit in your finances. This will pay off in the long run if you keep your nose to the grindstone. There may be some snags in investments and in things you thought were safe bets for savings and earnings, so you might want to look into that and hold an affirmation that all things will reveal themselves. Relatives want to stay in contact with you and you have recently been so into your own business that you have had little time to reach out to family and others who are interested in your whereabouts and achievements. Take time to take care of your adrenaline system and the pressures that have caused you to 'eat your feelings' so that you don't cause your endocrine system to break down; sugar is a big no-no. If you are having headaches recently, see if you can try to meditate, pray or find sacred space so that you can relax amidst all the pressures. Next month will give you some reprieve so look forward to a more relaxing state of mind.
Scorpio --- Scorpios are looking at how their pasts affect their future and finding that these karmic situations are almost 'instant' these days. You have been finding that some of your suspicions about your partner have been true and it is time to look at how you have contributed to those 'outcomes'. Your need for intimacy is intense, but is not necessarily in touch with your sexual energy. You might try learning more about Tantra Yoga and your sensual nature as separate from your sexual nature so that you can find nurturance in some of your more natural functions. You can rely on friends lately to tell you 'pieces of the truth' as well as they might know you. You are not that revealing, but the friends you have confided in may give you some interesting information that will lead you to some answers in your personal life; questions that have been weighing heavily on your mind. Scorpio tends to manifest outwardly what they create in the inner life, so it is important that you see that this is not only a coincidence, but also a natural consequence. Money is tight for the next couple of months so be sure you have socked away finances for the future when you will really need it. There are many decisions that need to be made and confirmed in your everyday planning so stand up to those who have blocked your passage and announce your position. Don't waver or you will find that you are worse off than before. You should have all systems go by the holidays at the end of the year and create a great wealth of support around you with family and friends. Be honest!
Sagittarius --- Sagittarians are finding their 'gold' in their talents now and should be moving forward with great speed and grace. It is time for manifestation and also alignment with goals, dreams and wishes for the future. Make sure your intentions are serving you in ways that your philanthropic soul can accept. You are a true warrior and at times get thrown by the material world, with your spending habits and your good nature. It is best to keep your eye on the 'sword of truth and justice' as you move forward with great speed to fight the battles for the less fortunate in the world. Take time, whatever you are doing, to meditate and affirm your sacred space so that the 'riches' you give to the world have value in more ways than any material matter would. Stay in touch with friends and family who hold special places in their hearts for you and you, them. It is important to listen and listen well to those who have your interests at heart so that you form a good support team for your very 'busy' future. You need to sit down with a money manager so that you know how to create immense wealth over the next few years and also know how to invest that talent of yours in the form of money earned. You are multi talented and have a special knack for publishing and reproducing/training the public in some unique ways. Don't lose your sense of purpose and mission no matter what comes your way. Read the signs of your spiritual guidance and 'know' that your spiritual gifts will always work for you in a big way! Just remember you are a fire sign and the universe moves in time to the earth, not necessarily the 'fire' even if all elements are present.
Capricorn --- Staying focused is the Capricorn's motto these days; not only staying focused but also staying out of intense and troubling situations. The theme of the Capricorn is 'karmic retribution' and so it can be both 'good and bad' depending on whether or not you come from your heart or your head. It is time to learn to blend both into the equation in order to live a full and prosperous life. It depends on how you handle each and every moment of the day and if the glass is always 'half empty' or 'half full'. This will determine the outcome of all of your endeavors and help you to attain your goals, a bit at a time. Be sure to take care of health needs and if an operation is pending, take the advice of your doctor and get it handled. While Pluto is in the sign of Capricorn, many situations will demand immediate attention, in areas of health, money and relationships. All of these areas of concern will need to be followed through with and not put off until a 'rainy day'. It is easy, with the pressures that the cappy's have been through for them to sweep some issues under the rug and hope for a good outcome. You cannot do that and hope to survive the Plutonian trip. You have to meet eye to eye and address each and every problem that arises, knowing that you are benefiting from the immediate attention. This is not at time to venture into a new relationship, but instead to look to those who have loved you and stood by you in the past. Your attention does not need any distractions these days and one of the ways you keep yourself 'off center' is by following impulses instead of a sensitivity to what is 'right' in the 'here and now'. Good luck with all of this and get with your latter degreed Sag friends so they can tell you what they were doing a couple of years back.
Aquarius --- Aquarians are in touch with some goals and desires they had going a few months ago and are now able to put them in place. Trusting the wrong friend is one of the biggest faults of an Aquarian and that does not mean the friend should not be 'a friend' but you make too much and expect too much of friendship and then it only lets you down. You have high minded goals with a minimum of support instead of 'knowing who is capable of massive support' in your corner. If ever there was a time to get in touch with how you sabotage your very noble efforts, with unconscious agenda, now is the time to be 'reality based'. If you are not meeting the needs of your '3-D world', like money, health and successful relationships, then take a second look and see how you are creating this. You are a humanitarian in every way, but that doesn't mean you have to suffer while other people move forward. It is time to learn balance and how all things work in the material world. You might find that a project is on its way that sets you firmly on your path, but you must have the eyes to see it and the discernment to know what is good for you. Take the time to research the opportunities that present themselves all this week and next so that you can move forward with discernment and perseverance toward the beginning of this next month. Your thinking is no longer clouded with situations that are left open and unclear as you have cleared up most issues in your life. Now you must put one foot in front of the other and tackle each situation as it presents itself.
Pisces --- Your dreams are seemingly coming true and you are reaping the benefits of holding on to the possibilities you have placed in front of yourself in the last few months. You are going to be at the 'right place and the right time' so have faith that all is working in your favor even when you are feeling overwhelmed with it all. You are learning especially about partnerships this month, both business and intimate and that they are two way streets. Your feedback is needed in a big way when you are a partner as you have some very valuable information that you now seem to come forward with. You have unwillingly made yourself indispensible in the past due to your work ethic, but now you are getting a glimpse as to how that occurs and are stopping the process. Use your time wisely and make sure it is 'your' time and not someone else that is being honored here. Your nerves cannot take you ignoring your meditation and 'down' time because they will get frayed and then you be back to 'overwhelm' as your mantra. Keep partners at arms-length and keep your sites on your feelings, awareness and good common sense. You are talented and can run large companies if you feel so disposed, however you don't 'have' to do any of that if you don't want to, just know that you have it in you. This is your month to thrive in a big way and set your boundaries so that your finances and precious time become your own and you don't have to depend on someone else to carry you through. You can do it and it seems to you have to give an extra 'push' now and again.
