Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
This month sees you reap the benefit from extra physical activities adopted previously. Your health and wellbeing are the focus. It is time to listen to your body. If you need to slow down and rest, a rare state of affairs for the fiery Ram, then do so. On the other hand you may need an outlook for pent-up energy. If so then more physical activity is called for. It is also time to pay attention to your daily habits. You can spice things up a little by making minor changes. For instance if you travel to work on a regular basis perhaps you could take a different mode of transport or a different route. This is your month to watch for signs of synchronicity and renew your enthusiasm for daily life.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
The challenge for Taureans this month is to embrace positivity and creativity. “And it’s a whole lot harder to shine Than undermine” as one song lyric in a tv series called Nashville goes. You need to find ways to shine. It doesn’t matter how much money it costs it is time for you to be creative and have some fun. So no know digging in your heels and naysaying for stubborn and cautious Taureans. It is your month to move forward and focus on your talents. Some creative visualisation may help you discover hidden gifts. Try to recall what you loved to do as a young child. Alternatively you may know exactly what you need to express. So find ways to sparkle.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
The start of September sees your ruling planet Mercury heading backwards, or so it seems. As such you need to hunker down and get your house in order. This is no time to be out and about making decisions, signing contracts or spending money. Rather you need to work behind the scenes. If you are about to make a major decision or start a big project then you would be better to remain in preparation mode until after September 5. After this date all systems are go. You are the talker of the Zodiac and will benefit when Mercury moves forward on September 5. Communications become clearer, particularly in connection with family and household matters.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
As a Cancer Sun Sign you are usually so considerate that you let other people speak first. You are sympathetic and a good listener. Not so this month. It is time to let your voice be heard. This month it is time for you to move forward with everything to do with the written or spoken word - letters, telephones, conversation, ideas, books, social media, and so on. Application rather than attainment is the key. This can be literally an application for a new job, position or promotion. Alternatively it could mean applying yourself to a current project. Breadth rather than depth is required.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
So you survived the August Eclipse in your Zodiac Sign. Now the planets are aligned in the money sector of your Solar Chart. Most likely your self-esteem and personal finances are under scrutiny. Money matters need to be dealt with this month. Paying bills, organising a budget or reading up on financial management are priorities. The pleasure-seeking planet Venus is in your Zodiac Sign and so entertaining pursuits or celebrations may be behind your need to examine your spending habits. Alternatively it could be a trip to the dentist or another health professional.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Generally your life is moving in the right direction. Details are being attended to and you are happy with your plans despite a few delays. The planet Mercury is powerful in your Zodiac Sign empowering your organisational skills although you need to proceed cautiously for the first week of September. After September 5 you are likely to go into hyper drive reaping the benefits of good work. You move forward with greater finesse and speed. Contracts and communications take a turn for the better. Communication is the name of the game. You need clarity to ensure that everything stays on track.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
September is a social month with a few moments of pleasure-seeking respite for Librans. Your calendar is likely to fill with gatherings big and small. Clubs, groups and outings with friends are the name of the game. You may be called on for your excellent diplomacy skills, particularly in your close circle of family and friends. As a result you may feel the desire to escape family politics. As a result you may need to retreat and recharge your emotional and physical batteries. If you have been planning a massage, a trip to the mineral spas, a night at the theatre or a fishing expedition then it is time to find space on your September calendar.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
Are you tired of apologising for being a Scorpio, of the few seconds of silence that follow you mentioning your Sun Sign? You are a truth-seeker and a truth-teller and this is not always appreciated by your nearest and dearest. However, this month sees you recognised for all of the positive aspects of your resourceful nature. Others notice and appreciate your innate abilities for wise counsel, loyal support and insights into the deeper topics in life. You have a date with destiny, one that sees you reap some rewards and recognition. You may literally be nominated for an award, receive an award or you could receive a more personal commendation.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Sagittarians are feeling the final effects of the serious planet Saturn as it moves slowly through this Zodiac Sign. Not much longer now and you stand to reap the rewards of all of your hard work. Just a little more attention to duty, details and karmic debt is required. This month you are required to pay attention to your social standing and your career. If you are fulfilled in your profession then you continue to work towards your goals, to make a contribution to society and to find your working life fulfilling. However if you are unhappy, treading water in a job that is unsuitable then you are likely to make a change.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
No matter what you are working on, home or work, you find that attention to detail at the start of September reaps rewards as the month progresses. September 5 is a turning point as the planet Mercury changes direction in a fellow Earth Sign. As a result satisfaction is guaranteed from a job well done, particularly one connected to foreign affairs, study, teaching or publishing. While you are likely to spend many hours working behind the scenes, or within a large corporation, your horizons can also broaden through education or travel plans. Religion, politics, sport and legal matters may also demand your attention this month.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
It is time to let go and embrace a new modus operandi. Negative habits, behaviour, projects and perhaps even people need to be set aside. September sees you adopt an attitude of gratitude for all that is good, while setting new, positive goals. You have the drive to achieve fresh objectives. Your social life may be curtailed as something of deeper meaning or greater importance demands your attention. As always Aquarians need to be wary of fixed opinions. This is your month to accept change, look at all of your options and then make up your mind. You have reached a fork in the road and need to decide on your next direction.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Rewards come through your associations with other people this month. Those closest to you are appreciative. You also are relationship focussed. If you are single then you may hit the social scene, keen to find a mate. You may seek advice from friends, relative and perhaps even professionals. If you are in a committed union then your union is the focus. It is time to look your loved one in the eyes. This means sitting down and spending quality time with your mate. Some astrologers call this line-up your time to mate, date and relate. Whether single or in a committed partnership your relationship skills are tested.
