Astrology Insights for SEPTEMBER 2019

Astrology predictions written by Susan Reynolds of exploreastrology.com

Aries

Aries

Aries

With so much Virgo energy in the air sweet Aries cannot help but think of getting things done at the office. Much is going to be asked of you now, but I have no doubt that Aries is equal to the challenge. There are meetings and phone calls and lots of coming and going but somehow you manage to land on your feet. No question but that the Aries temper makes itself know once or twice but with Venus on your side how can you lose? This energy is also all about service and the Ram is thinking about how you can give back. Is there someone in your life that can use a little help right now? Because that is where you are needed and where you should be putting your energies. You help out neighbors or take a friend to the doctor. You are more than ready to put yourself out for the right reason. And let us not forget that even in the midst of all this activity somehow Aries finds time to take care of your own health and well-being. Make sure you get to the gym or don’t miss yoga class. You will be glad you made the effort, I promise. By mid-month some of this Virgo energy starts to move on and some of the pressure lifts. The first half of the month is much more demanding than the second. That’s not to say the second half is a walk in the park. As both Mercury and Venus oppose your Sun you don’t know if you are coming or going in terms of romance. If single then this is a BIG dating energy. If married then this is a super romantic energy. Make the most of it.  

Taurus

Taurus

Taurus

Taurus Taurus has been dealing with lots of changes lately and that is not your favorite thing. No question, all this has been a bit stressful for the Bull. You like things to stay the same and know what is going on at all times. Now too much is happening too fast and it is challenging. But you get some nice help this month from four, count ‘em four, planets that begin the month in Virgo. Virgo is an earth sign just like Taurus. That means that all four of these planets offer you their help. My advice is, take it and run. All four planets begin September in your fifth house. This is an area of the chart that deals with play. Hobbies, games and sports all come under this house. Likewise children and dating are also part of the fifth house. And if that weren’t enough this is also the area of creative pursuits. You need to take up a hobby. Explore painting and go to the theater. It is time to shake up your life in a good way, that makes you happy and excited. If you are single, then this is a great time to get out of the house and meet someone new. You have more energy and other people are drawn to you. Even though Pluto and Saturn are both still retrograde at the beginning of the month, Saturn goes direct on the 19th and adds their support as well. You might think of packing your bags and setting out on an adventure. A friend may invite you to go with them on a cruise and you say yes. Let yourself have a little fun.

Gemini

Gemini

Gemini

Gemini  seems to be staying close to home this month, with so much going on. Sweet Gemini can be a bit picky about their home and with four planets beginning the month in your area of home, you want to make sure everything is just so. Of course, the reason you want everything just right may be because company is coming to visit and nothing needs to be broken or out of place. But it can also be that you just decide to update the old homestead and you go shopping. There can be family issues cropping up that demand your attention and you are trying to divide yourself in two so you can work and still be there for family. The Full Moon of September 14th activates your professional life and work demands can interrupt plans. You must let go of some kind of idealized image of what family is supposed to look like. Every family is different and right now you and your spouse are trying to come to terms with what is going on in your household and how you are going to deal with things. These energies are impulsive and you can say things that you later regret so be careful of language. You are feeling overwhelmed and irritated and say things that hurt others. Then you have to try and smooth things over. Better to just hold your tongue and say the right thing at the right time. By mid-month you start to calm down and by end of month you are feeling much happier.

 Cancer

Cancer

Cancer

Cancer seems to be everywhere at once right now. So many different people pulling at you and demanding from you, has you feeling tired and discouraged and even a bit cranky. Cancer has lots of good qualities but saying no is not one of them. Stop saying yes when you want to say no. Jupiter has turned direct and work is picking up. There are professional demands on your time plus you are busy planning ahead and trying to be proactive as to certain problems and possibilities. Be sure to take care of your health. All this running around has you forgetting to eat right and there is no call to start skipping the gym. If you keep working out and eating right you will be in a much better place to take care of all that everyone is asking of you. Siblings may be a source of frustration now. They may be reaching out, but when you try and help they say no, just further frustrating you. I’m going to tell you meditation is your best friend right now. I know, you cannot calm down enough to sit and focus. But do it anyway. The Full Moon of the 14th has you coming up with all kinds of new ideas. You want to go back to school or take some classes. But it is also a great time to come up with subjects you might want to teach. Don’t underestimate your knowledge. As Saturn turns direct on the 18th, a partnership that was put on the back burner moves front and center once again. This is a good time for the right partnership for you. 

Leo

Leo

Leo

I don’t know where all this money is coming from but Leo seems to be doing quite well this month. You may be receiving extra income or working with money in some way for future investments. Be careful, as it looks like there can be some confusion and you want to make sure that you are aware of anything you are signing and that your investments are sound ones. Do not rush into anything but take your time and ask lots of questions. There can also be income from spiritual endeavors. You have been working so hard for so long, the time is coming when you will be able to kick back and take some time off. With Jupiter now in direct motion you are thinking about the fact that life should be fun and that is something you have put on hold. Now is the time to release that hold and let yourself play a bit. There can be money spent on stuff you like and that you just enjoy. Treat yourself well and you will have more energy and a more positive attitude. Saturn is turning direct on the 18th and some stalled work projects get the green light and start to move ahead. Because you have so many planets below the horizon the next couple of months are good for career prep. Take a look at 2020 and decide what you want to do, what you want to earn and put together a plan to get it. The second half of September Venus and Mercury are both in your area of communication. A good time for talks, meetings and rolling out new products. People love to listen to you.

Virgo

Virgo

Virgo is feeling just fine right now, thank you very much. With so much energy in your house of self – you are on fire! The sign of the Virgin is very good at staying in the background but not now sweet Virgo. Now it is time to stand out front and center and take a bow! It’s time for you hard work to be noticed and rewarded. It is time to talk to your boss or interview for a new job. Right now people are noticing you and they like what they see. You have to be careful that you don’t overdo and become too pushy. Other than that, I think you are in a great place. Mars is here in your own sign, giving you energy and drive. But Venus is here as well ensuring that people give you the benefit of the doubt and like you very much. A very special combination. BUT (there is always a But isn’t there)? Neptune is in your area of relationships opposing all this wonderfulness. There can be miscommunications and sometimes outright deception or deceit. You have to be careful how you language something as someone else may not take it the way you intended. If you are actively dating then you need to be extra careful about anyone new you start to see. They may not be telling you the whole truth. This is not always intended to deceive you, but sometimes to protect you or they are not being honest because they don’t want to hurt your feelings. You will have to navigate around all that. Jupiter is not in direct motion and as it is in your 4th house of home and family, there can be some projects that need your attention.

Libra

Libra

Libra

Libra has been feeling a bit low lately. You have four planets who are all visiting your house of inner contemplation. With so much of the chart focused on your inner life there is not too much energy floating around for you outer life. Chances are you feel physically tired and maybe even beat-up a little. Sometimes we just want to take a vacation from our life and this is your time sweet Libra. Make sure you are getting enough rest. There can be some old health issues cropping up and you want to make sure you are on top of anything your body needs. More doctor appointments just seem to happen now as you are getting reassured that everything is working properly. With Neptune part of this mix, there can be test results that are not conclusive or additional tests that need to be run. It is annoying I know, but take care of it now so it doesn’t become an issue later on. Emotions are running high and you could be feeling discouraged and defeated on some level. I can only say, hang in there as it will get better soon. But for now the best thing you can do is to work with these inner energies. It is a good time to get a reading or work on your spiritual life. Go on retreat and do some deep inner cleansing. By mid-September you will start to notice a shift for the better as two of these planets move on and bring you more energy and a more positive outlook. By the end of September it is even better. 

Scorpio

Scorpio

Scorpio

Reserved Scorpio is not so reserved right now. You are out and about and seeing old friends and making new ones. September is not the month to sit home and think deep thoughts. Life is calling you right now and you need to respond. Money matters are going well with Jupiter in your area of earned income and having just turned direct, you are all set to reap big rewards in your work. Jupiter will be here until December so these next few months are good ones to push your agenda forward at the office. Don’t be afraid to ask for a raise. Or if you are self-employed you might think about raising your prices. By mid-month both Mercury and Venus have changed signs and have moved into Libra and your twelfth house of quiet reflection and self-undoing. Now Scorpio is fine with self-reflection. It is something you do quite well. But you have to watch out that you might accidentally self-sabotage. Take some time for peace and quiet. After the busyness of the first two weeks you might want a little down time. But all the running around may have left you tired and worn out so just make sure you are getting enough rest. Do not, I repeat DO NOT let yourself sink into negative thoughts about life in general and your life in particular. Rest and quiet are fine, being mean to yourself, not so much. Saturn will turn direct on the 18th and some classwork or speaking engagement moves forward once again. Just don’t take on too much at one time.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius

Sagittarius

Wow, is Sag having a great career month or what? With four planets beginning the month in the area of your professional life, you are thinking about your work and the future of your career. A lot may be demanded of you now but you are up for it no question. Clients are calling, the boss is asking and you are a bit overwhelmed but also love the challenge. It may be a bit tricky balancing the demands of home and the office. Don’t be surprised if you do not do it perfectly every time. But overall you have a very nice opportunity to increase your standing. This is the time to toot your own horn. Make sure everyone knows what a good job you did and how much more you are capable of. This is the month to shine. Saturn turns direct on September 18th after months of being retrograde and you notice the change. Either there is more money on the table now or you are thinking of how to bring in more income. Some things start to open up that you had given up on. Between now and the end of the year, your career just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Jupiter is in direct motion as well you lucky dog you. Since Jupiter is your ruling planet this is double good news for Sagittarius. You have your mojo back. Lots more energy and confidence in yourself and believe me others notice. The Full Moon of the 14th can bring some demands at home or you and your spouse finally decide on the right color to paint the bedroom. There is lots going on this month but I have no doubt that sweet Sag can handle it just fine.

Capricorn

Capricorn

Capricorn

Sweet Capricorn gets some good news this month and that is your ruling planet, Saturn, is finally turning direct. For the last several months it has been retrograde (backward motion) and you have been getting more and more frustrated as you do not see things moving forward. But on September 18th this pesky planet gets with the program and starts to move. And you benefit. Saturn rules our career, our professional life and the way the public sees us, our reputation, how we handle authority and responsibility. A very important planet indeed. As it starts to move again you get your mojo back and are ready to take on new responsibilities and to once again turn your attention to projects that you stopped working on months ago. It is time to talk to your boss about a raise, or start to look at other options. You want to move ahead and do more and now is the time to start taking those steps. Each month after September this planet gets stronger and stronger and you become more and more confident. Beware of being too pushy or throwing down the gauntlet. But if you work it right and keep things in balance you can see your career move up to the next level. Right now you are thinking about advertising and marketing and planning all kinds of stuff. This is a great month for sales. If you are in sales in any way then watch out! It is also good for travel and education. Take a class or attend a seminar, do a weekend away just for fun or put together a comprehensive plan for going back to school. All good ways to use this energy.

Aquarius

Aquarius

Aquarius

Sweet Aquarius has been struggling for a while with both Saturn and Pluto sitting in your area of contemplation. You have been asked to take a deep look within and ask some hard questions. On September 18th Saturn will finally turn direct. Now it will not move out of this house but you do get some relief from all the inner soul searching. Sometimes this can come out in terms of health. We end up with more doctor visits than we would like or we are busy being a care-giver for someone else. Now things start to even out. Next year you get the first glimpse of Saturn moving into your sign but that is down the road and for now you are still figuring out who you are and where your life is going. And right now you are thinking about your financial future. With so many planets beginning September in your area of money received, you can end up saying Thank-You to some kind of monetary gift. Lucky you. It is a time of receiving graciously in terms of prosperity and abundance. With Jupiter also having turned direct and contacting all these planets, some of this abundance may come through a friend. Maybe they gift you with some flyer miles so you can visit a relative or maybe it is just picking up the tab for a nice dinner. No matter what, your job is to accept with joy. You may also be looking at your financial future. Time to talk to someone about retirement and college funds and even power of attorney and end of life issues. Not always fun I grant you, but necessary and after taking care of business you can play and have fun. 

Pisces

Pisces

Pisces

Pisces has their mind on love right now. Your 7th house of love, romance and marriage is full of all kinds of planets all trying to express different energies. This can be a bit confusing. If you are single, then there can be a longing for a partner, a kind of mythical romantic partner that will love you and understand you and make everything okay. Sometimes I see this show up as a longing for a lost love. The heart goes back to what was in the past. All this can be a bit weepy and sad. But not so fast Pisces because there is a beautiful side to this energy as well. That is the side that opens your heart and shares that heart with someone else. You are more than ready to have a real partnership that is grounded in reality but still gives your butterflies. If married or involved then you and he/she can go on a trip this month or make some special time just for the two of you. You may have to work on clear communication as this energy is not always black and white in terms of what you say and how you say. But if you are clear then the communication can be excellent as the two of you come together then there can be some beautiful music being made. There is a lot of earth energy working together in your chart and this can be dealing with things of the earth. That can be money and finances. You might be writing some big checks or looking for some big money to make its way to you. I love it.

New Moon and Full Moon Insights SEPTEMBER 2019

Full Moon

FULL MOON on SEPTEMBER 14, 2019 – 21° PISCES  I love the Harvest Moon this month. The Harvest Moon is tied to the Autumnal Equinox. The Full Moon that falls nearest to this date (September 22nd or 23rd) is always called the Harvest Moon. A Harvest Moon is beautiful. There is a soft reddish or orange tint to its rays. Sort of reminds me of what the Moon should look like at Halloween. There is more light from this Moon than usual and that would always help the farmers. The Moon looks bigger in the sky as we look up to it. All the beauty and mystery of the Moon is there on display. This month’s Moon falls in the sign of Pisces. This is a gentle and emotional sign. All the water signs are more emotional. We tend to feel things more deeply with water Moons so your emotions may be all over the place. We cry more easily and we tend to blame ourselves more easily. Pisces is the sign of self-sabotage and we can beat ourselves up and unfairly blame ourselves for things that are not our fault. Pisces is emotional but not always clear so things can get confusing. We forget where we put our car keys and are sure we have Alzheimer’s. Sometimes we just walk around in a fog for a few days. But this Moon is also the veil between this side and the next. We are more easily able to meditate. And we feel closer to God or the Divine or The Universe. Our imagination is active so we come up with great ideas and if we are involved in the arts then we really feel connected to our own artistic inspiration. It is beautiful, magical and just a bit wacky. Have fun.

New Moon

NEW MOON on SEPTEMBER 28, 2019 – 5° LIBRA  A New Moon is all about new beginnings. It is called the dark of the Moon because the night sky is dark when there is a New Moon. New Moons happen when the Sun and Moon come together. This means that whatever sign the Moon is in, we get a double dose of that energy, one from the Sun and the other from the Moon. When our willpower (Sun) and our emotions (Moon) are together like this we can put a tremendous amount of energy into whatever vibrations that sign holds. This month the New Moon is in Libra and as most of us know by now that means that this Moon is all about LOVE. That’s right L O V E in capital letters. There is nothing half-way about Libra and their romantic feelings. Most of us will be more aware of all kinds of relationships issues right now. The energies of the New Moon begin up to three days before the actual Moon and they can continue for a couple of days afterward. If we are married or involved then chances are you and your partner are talking more. This may be talking about getting married, or taking a vacation. It can also be talking about uncomfortable subjects that you tend to avoid. Libra is an air sign and loves talking. If you are single then this energy might bother you a bit more than usual. You may be feeling more lonely or alone and think about starting to date again or ask a friend to fix you up. We want people around us under Libra. We reach for friends if there is no romantic interest and none wanted. We still have to figure out a way to deal with friends who are sometimes way more demanding than a love interest. But Libra doesn’t want to fight. They make love not war. There is an opportunity here to bring people together and see each other’s point of view. Just make sure you do not go overboard buying stuff to make up if there is a fight. This Venus ruled sign wants nice things and is not worried about paying for them. You might be thought once the credit card bills start to show up. And nothing shoddy for Libra. No sir, first class all the way with this sign. The best champagne and nicest dinner just keep a close eye on what you are spending and you will enjoy this New Moon just fine.
