STARGAZER SEPTEMBER HOROSCOPES

PROGRESS
Forward momentum is finally made, with Mars and then Saturn returning direct, a shift in ambience is palpable and likely comes as a huge relief. Matters that precipitated as far back as January may culminate now when Jupiter and Pluto make their final sextile on the 12th. A journey into the darker regions of the netherworld pays off now, and where you have acted (consistently) with passion and conviction towards a goal or ideal is the prize. The Virgo New Moon ties into the configuration nicely, and offers a methodical practicality to realize this. On the other hand, an opposition of the New Moon to Neptune can provide a more challenging atmosphere, engendering an illusionary quality that can be either inspiring or confusing.

Venus and Mars are in conflict meanwhile, and there can be a confrontational quality in relationships over the coming months. Partners may be reconsidering prior choices, especially when Venus retrogrades in October. The friction between Scorpio (Venus) and Aquarius (Mars) can be pretty intense. One partner may want a more deeply intimate connection while the other seeks complete freedom. It’s possible that you experience this dynamic as a personal inner conflict. When Venus transits back into Libra in November, the terms of agreements and recalibration of the balance will occur. Venus and Mars trine on November 9th, signaling a truce is made.

Elements of the fates are in play, with Venus square the Nodes on the 16th and Mars conjunct South Node, (the final of 3 contacts made since June,) occurring in the final week of the month. These contacts can reveal the shortcomings of a decision made during the Summer or evolve a storyline initiated during the Aquarius eclipse that occurred at the end of July. It may be time to finally release a karmic contract and finally move forward. May the forces be with you! ~ Stargazer

SEPTEMBER HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

You continue to elevate your public profile and experience exciting shifts in perspective this month. A clash with a partner on the 9th can signal a slow down or reconsideration of the relationship. Venus begins to slow in orbit, preparing for retrograde motion. Perhaps job obligations are pulling you apart. A new venture partner, loan or outside source of money can bolster your professional prospects on the 12th. A behind the scenes role seems to suit you best right now. A new job or position is highlighted this month. A project or assignment you begin on the 20th will play a major role in your activities for the next four months. The New Moon on the 9th could also present an opportunity. You are at ease with yourself on the 25th and onwards. A Full Moon in your sign ties it all together for you.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Relationships intensify, (and will continue to for a few months) as Venus begins a transit of Scorpio, your mirror self, or partnership, from the 10th of September. This transit extends into January of next year, or close to 13 weeks. (During the month of November, Venus is mostly in Libra due to the retrograde cycle.) You could see some push/pull dynamics taking place in your love relationship and it may be that you or your loved one are getting cold feet, at least temporarily. Venus harmonizes with Saturn over the course of the retrograde, but is also in tension to the Nodes. A situation has to prove itself. Hold in your heart that true love will prevail and you will be fine. Feelings run strong around the 12th and a New Moon in the most romantic part of your zodiac on the 9th can stimulate very positive dynamics in your love life.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

There is an inward shift this month and while you are still riding on a bit of a social + romantic wavelength you’ll feel a bit more reclusive. The 7th is really remarkable for coming into your own and getting in touch with your inner space and doing some soul healing. Practices you put in now will last you a long time. Your work life needs some tweaking mid month, and you’ll ask whether what you are doing to stash the cash is in alignment with where you want to invest yourself the most, which is likely to involve your head expression, speaking and writing. Adjustments are required for growth and because these changes involve altering the most fixed aspects of existence, thus there is a great deal of friction around those changes. You take pleasure in your routines and having healthy habits this month. You feel more upbeat after the 22nd.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

As money matters reconcile and fade away in the rear view mirror, you become more free to tune into the very enticing romantic and social opportunities that are available this month. You may find a romantic relationship goes through a period of adjustment around the 17th. You and yours need to get on the same page for the future and negotiate some kind of financial agreement. This one will be a work in progress for a few months. Put to rest a long standing issue related to debt or some other form of outside income on the 26th. An exciting new social chapter opens up for you on the 20th, and a creative or academic project you begin now will become an important part of your daily life and activities for the next 4 months. Putting on a performance, writing an online blog or journal, or hosting a podcast could all be fun projects you’ll consider with some friends. From the 10th a spectacular and loving transit of Venus influences your house of True Romance. There’s going to be a back and fourth (again) though, with Venus going retro next month, so son’t get your hopes up too quickly!

LEO July 23 – August 22

Financial channels open this month, it’s a good time for budgeting expenses and monitoring your income. The 20th begins a prosperous period, you’ll be working for it, but earning what you deserve. The edge comes back to your relationship on the 12th, and unresolved conflict will be inevitable. You can bury a long standing issue on the 26th. Call it out for what it is and cut yourself free from burdensome people and energies. The 18th could present a vexing sexual/romantic conundrum. Sultry Black Moon Lillith combines with the South Node, and there could be enticements that could produce a set back. Venus in Scorpio from the 10th sets up the major theme of the final third of the year, associated with your home and family and a back and fourth (retrograde) issue pertaining to a residential matter. It could be you are ready to make an upgrade, Jupiter is all for it, but you may want to anticipate for delays until December. Either resources or a partner prevent you from taking the plunge. Let this month be instructive, not constructive.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

New beginnings are the focus of this months stars and you will start to see signs of life in a relationship that may have stalled or stagnated. Growth may be slow going, but it is also assured at this point. Limits are tested on the 8th and a fight could signal a temporary separation, so watch your words on this difficult day. A Venus retrograde period is approaching and partners may be feeling stretched a bit thin over the coming months. Events on the 12th can catch you by surprise, yet you feel at ease here and can readily communicate your heart’s desire with candor. You might reach the final straw with a job you no longer feel is stimulating and by the end of the month you’ll be ready to bite the dust on a situation you have outgrown. Mercury makes a super quick transit of your sign mid month and a flurry of activity keeps you remarkably busy. Financials come into frame during the last week, this will be particularly helpful and interesting if you have decided to quit a job and need to figure out your budget until you have a new position lined up.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Contentious energy with a family member, flatmate or within your residence can trigger an argument or crisis on the 8th. This will be the most obvious with someone whom you are in a romantic relationship and have been living with (or thinking about it). Disagreements at this time can also point to financial worries and indications mid month of shortcomings can also be problematic. Good news could arrive on the 11th and 12th that modifies this enormously though, and will assist you in making progress. An issue that has weighed upon your relationship since May (or earlier) can finally be resolved, and the time around the Full Moon on the 25th and events over the week that follows can bring in very positive news. There is equally the potential you are breaking something off in this phase too, in which case it’s absolutely best to release it, as it no longer serves your growth. There is a solemn quality to someone you say goodbye to at this time, but it also frees you to embrace an incredible momentum to move forward.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Venus in your sign from the 10th brings pleasurable experiences, even a little luxury and romance into your life, with the 12th presenting a wonderful opportunity to make a commitment, especially for business. Agreements made now are long lasting and all involved parties will grow and benefit from the terms of a contract at this time. You might feel a bit triggered around the 17th in regard to your identity and professional direction. If you don’t feel you are being properly represented, for instance in the press or media or identify personally with your public persona there can be an uncomfortable adjustment now. Friends are on sides and especially around the 20th you start to see some profits from your business pursuits. A domestic matter finally begins to see resolution, the last week of the month allows you to make final changes and say goodbye where it is time to set yourself free.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

A professional enterprise or trajectory you set in motion during July new shows signs of real progress. This will be most evident during the New Moon on the 9th. This lunation taps into vitalizing alinements with Pluto and Jupiter, suggesting work you have been doing behind the scenes will pay off lucratively for you. A promotion or success in a personal business is indicated, although an opposition to Neptune stimulates a more complex, beguiling atmosphere. There is much more here than what meets the eye and you do well to wait to put a plan into motion until the 20th. A certain nostalgia is present this month, as you recognize your life is changing and bid farewell to people and places that are familiar to you. The transit of Venus in Scorpio beginning on the 10th (and which lasts through December, due to an upcoming retrograde phase,) stimulates a period of closure and endings. This will be prolonged as certain elements will take longer to release, but by December, coupled with Jupiter in your sign, you will find yourself in a whole new world.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

Saturn resumes direct motion on the 5th and you will likely feel stimulated, in a good way, to start to make some new progress towards your personal and long range goals. A significant turning point on the 20th can stimulate you to take action towards a media or publishing venture, you want to get yourself (and ideas) out into the big wide world. A financial resolution is possible on the 26th. This time a decision sticks, and a burden you have contended with can finally be released. Venus in Scorpio on the 10th sends you positive social vibes. It will be fun to connect (and during the retrograde to reconnect) with friends. You may also see a positive upturn in financial matters associated with your profession. The 11th and 12th are very auspicious, but there could be a surprise in store! Likewise the 15th and 16th are very good for striking deals, agreements made now have a seal of protection and good luck attached to them. A Full Moon on the 25th brings a culmination in your residence or with close family members. Saturn is in a difficult aspect, so it could be you are making a decision under some kind of duress or to mitigate a shortage of some sort.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

A great deal of unfinished business gets sorted this month, with many arenas of your life impacted and clearing the way for growth and new developments. There could be a tendency to withdraw in this period, at least through the 11th when Mars reenters your sign. Venus comes to occupy the apex of your chart from the 10th, and coupled with Jupiter will offer a very favorable period for career advancement. With Venus set to retrograde in about a month, some of these enterprises will go through transmutations before they reach their culmination, which you can expect in December. The 12th and 16th are ideal for putting things into motion and articulating your vision for a project. There can be some erotic intensity around the 18th, temptation will abound. A joint financial endeavor you sign off on around the 20th bears weight for the next four months, and will play a big role in your activities through the end of the year, so think negotiations through. The last week of the month gives you closure on an issue you have sought to reconcile for many moons. A sense of rebirth prevails.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

Partnership is emphasized, and the lines of communication are wide open. The 7th, 11th, 12th, 15th and 16th are all very positive for coming to agreements that effect your relationships and business partnerships. A New Moon on the 9th in your house of partnership has highly auspicious energy around it, and resonates with a powerful development or meeting that may have occurred in early January. The 20th is ideal for putting a deal or commitment into writing, including an engagement or setting a wedding date. (The suggestion would be to wait until after Venus retrograde to actually hold the ceremony if you are getting married. As of September 3rd, the Venus chart is already in retrograde shadow.) From the 12th Mars now direct reenters your house of privacy, seclusion and endings, giving you another opportunity to eradicate issues from the past that have been vexing and difficult to resolve so far this year. A big push comes in the final week of the month, and around the 26th there could be a long sought after resolution to a problematic matter that allows you to leave the past behind once and for all.

You will need to watch what you commit to, there is some haziness with this transit and you may not be seeing someone for what they really are. A romantic indulgence at this point can be very enticing, although these transits will offer a reference point for where you may have over idealized a situation or individual. In the context of a genuine and committed association there is no harm. You can clear the air and state your intentions on the 16th and 22nd. Work and professional matters go quite well, the dates of the 2nd, 12th, 15th, and 18th are all exceptional for seeing progress in your work assignments and advancement in your career. Full Moon in your sign on the 6th signals completion or culmination of a personal matter. Neptune and Pluto conspire for very powerful and significant developments. You have come a long way since February, as you will now see.

STUFF I 💖:

STARGAZER FORECAST SEPTEMBER 2016

TURNING POINTS – CROSSING THE THRESHOLD TO A NEW LIFE

A significant turning point in September is largely defined by the Saturn – Neptune square, with the stakes and potential for transformation amplified by two very intense eclipses, falling in Virgo (September 1st) and Pisces (September 16th). Late November of 2015 saw the first aspect occur, the onset of a challenge associated within the manifestation of an ideal (or otherwise the realization of an illusion) that has been pervasive throughout most of the year. The final culmination (September 10th) will show how well we have navigated the confrontation that emerged, and whether or not the attainment of the ideal has been successful. In order to do this we have likely had to overcome something, or prove our dedication. Saturn has a back to basics quality that requires a certain mettle and staunch determination that likely described what was required to overcome the challenge(s) presented. Much has been stripped away in order to complete this task. The reality check here was to really evaluate and define what is real (difficult under the gauzy-hazy auspices of the Neptune square) and work with what we actually have, in order to create that which could possibly be.

Neptune’s impulses come from a etherial and creative place that stimulates divine inspiration. Saturn demanded that the inspiration be crystalized into some kind of workable and tangible form. Jupiter from Virgo added emphasis to the material realm, and gave us some beneficial tools to work with, assisting us in finding new methods to stimulate productivity. Health and wellness have also been a focus, with the North Node pointing us toward an evolutionary path that shows us better ways to manage well being. Finding the right life management patterns has a positive and outward effect on all else going on with us and around us. Feeling good most certainly boosts our availability to be present, both for generating the endurance that is required as we work toward successful outcomes as well as to meet the demands of more critical challenges as they inevitably occur.

The eclipses this month represent a real shake up, and may prove severe testing points for the durability of the structures we have developed or the path to the future we wish to sow. September 1st can be volatile, as our 9 Virgo eclipse falls right in the cross hairs of the culminating Saturn – Neptune square, which is already strong enough by the end of August to clearly be felt. A Solar Eclipse represents a moment for monumental growth forward and engagement of a new opportunity, and while this will certainly be no exception, this particular prospect is inhibited by the ongoing challenges Saturn – Neptune represent. It’s also possible an event or insight that occurs around this time provides the necessary breakthrough or catalyst through which we find the solution to a sizable conflict. With the Eclipse ruler (using Mercury as the traditional ruler of Virgo) in detriment because it is retrograde, it’s going to take an extra bit of sorting through to get there. (Bookmark October 6th as the place where everything can begin to fall into place, at least on an organizational level.) Sun conjunct North Node on September 5th will provide clearer directives that illuminate the pathway to the future.

PISCES ECLIPSE 9/16:

pisces eclipse

While the Solar Eclipse may be vexing, mainly because of the impediments to that which we seek to get off the ground, it’s really the Lunar Eclipse at 24 Pisces on the 16th that packs the punch. Lunar eclipses signal endings, and with Mars in hard aspect, square both Sun and Moon, it could be an ending that comes out of an argument or disagreement. Saying goodbye is always more difficult under the auspices of a bad break or burning a bridge, and there is a rather hostile and contentious atmosphere at this time. It could equally be that a significant culmination occurs that someone on the sidelines disapproves of and responds to argumentatively or aggressively. An ethical or legal dispute can also present an issue or conflict around this period.

Moon and Chiron in Pisces will also be close at the time of the Eclipse, and there can be a healing release connecting back to events last March. Letting go of pain, and perhaps more significantly, the idea we have to continue putting energy into a situation out of feelings of sympathy – as opposed to a genuine desire to participate, are also significant topics of the eclipse that seek resolution. This also ties into feelings of personal self worth, or a lack there of, that keeps us tenuously bound to unhealthy or unsatisfying relationships or conditions. This will be a potent time in which to evaluate these feelings and make an effort to resolve these issues where we find them to be present. Sensitivity will be heightened immensely at this time, so take it real easy if you are naturally empathic/intuitive. In the following days, the Aries Moon rejuvenates and from September 17 – 19, Venus, Mars and Uranus all align playfully, igniting a really fun and dynamic ambience for love, pleasure and sex, especially where you are ready to try something, or even someone, new.

Mercury retrograde (August 30 – September 22) underscores the dynamic atmosphere of the month, in some ways muddling the proceedings, but also ensuring we get it right, so we can move forward with clarity and conviction into the incredibly advantageous final quarter of the year. Mercury has two significant accomplices during the RX cycle, Jupiter and Pluto, which will actually stimulate a very positive ambience for growth through the conversations and negotiations that will take place throughout September. Jupiter, with which Mercury remains in very close communication with from August 20 – September 5th, infuses communication and thinking with hope and optimism for the future. From Virgo, refinement of a concept or the methods we engage in order to manifest it are highlighted. The combination of the two augurs good will and expansion. So towards the end of August we are generating big and exciting ideas, and making very positive strides within communication based activities.

Mercury then takes a step back to reevaluate the grand design it’s working on, spending the final two weeks of September in harmonious alignment with Pluto, the period from the 20th – 23rd signaling the peak of their contact. The cosmic messenger takes the bold ideas it formed with Jupiter and intensifies them through the connection with Pluto, ensuring these prospects and activities augment and enhance the deeper transformation that is occurring in our lives. The modification that transpires now is crucial and will boost our chances at success, so don’t feel deterred if things seem to be taking a while to get sorted. Important information has yet to be revealed and Virgo – Mercury seeks to establish a methodology that will generate the best results. This does not necessarily indicate a loss of momentum, just a period of reassessment that will likely be very busy as we attend to numerous details!

Look to developments that occurred in March and June (when Jupiter and Pluto were trine) as we are currently in the process of articulating and manifesting the goals and opportunities represented by those contacts. This period from the 20th – 23rd is when the most vital conversations will occur, with Mercury turning direct on the 22nd, we pivot towards a new agenda directly out of the agreements and discussions taking place at this vital and significant time. Mercury will combine forces emphatically with Jupiter at 7 Libra for a third time on October 11th, and it will be all systems go on the relationship, lifestyle and enterprise from there.

With Jupiter in Libra from the 10th, we shift from the learning phase of the last year into a climate ripe for initiative and new beginnings. Jupiter in Libra will emphasize creating balanced relationships between ourselves and others, and offer expansive opportunities through relating, especially within artistic and intellectual activities. Jupiter will engage with Pluto and Uranus this year, encouraging a more diplomatic response to the more volatile and abrasive confrontations we have endured since 2012. Partnerships will thrive, as the Sun – Jupiter conjunction (Sep. 26th) and Libra New Moon on the 30th will quickly attest to. Venus in Libra through September 23rd sets the tone, stimulating amenable social conditions and the cultivation of connections that will enhance prosperity and growth.

The ambience really gets a jolt at the end of the month, as Pluto resumes direct motion on the 26th and Mars enters Capricorn the following day. An executive and professional atmosphere prevails and our most determined efforts and conviction towards success become stimulated. A persevering quality is present through mid November, and makes this a good period in which to tackle a tough project or challenge you can completely immerse yourself within, particularly if it leads to promotion and advancement. (Mars conjunct Pluto and square Jupiter in October will really amplify the desire to succeed, perhaps at any cost!) With so many challenges otherwise overcome, and the tumultuous back and fourth we’ve experienced so far this year, by the time we reach the Fall Equinox (Sept. 22nd) a new beginning transpires that signals the turning point we have all been waiting for. Things get better from here on out, as we enter the most productive and positive quarter of the year, which in many ways will seem like it’s only beginning. Happy Autumn Time, I hope it will be most magical for you!

HOROSCOPES BY SIGN:

ARIES: Unsettled issues regarding a job or promotion are highlighted this month, with your life direction becoming more sorted in the final week. You have to compromise some of your mobility to achieve a milestone in your profession, as educational pursuits are still occupying much of your time. Partnerships are also highlighted, with some of the best opportunities to rekindle or begin an alliance around the New Moon on the 30th shifting attention to what you really want in a business or romantic relationship. Wishes can come true under these auspices and the weekend of the 17th will offer super enticing vibrations. Walking the road less traveled will open the door to exciting experiences in love. Professionally you see signs of life from the last week of the month. A conversation occurring from the 20th – 23rd sets the stage for the advancement of your goals. This trend continues through mid November, largely defining the rest of the year for you. Hard work pays off now, as the right people finally see how much effort you have put in and offer awards accordingly.

 

TAURUS: Creative and romantic energy continues to be a dominant theme, and a cathartic, behind the scenes love connection can unfold over the weekend of the 17th. You may be parting with a group or organization mid month. A collective project ends with bang and maybe a blowout!
