September Horoscope: Smoother Sailing Ahead


September brings smoother sailing than we’ve seen in many moons. Use the first half of the month to get your bearings, then ride the wind in the second half.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…You’re in line for a life-changing identity shift. As you start to see — with shocking clarity — the role you’ve always played in your relationships, you realize you’ve grown bored with the whole wounded warrior/drama queen routine. What you really want to do is create. Commit to your dream — the more improbable the better — and you’ll never have to play Survivor again.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…Focused creativity is your salvation this month. Relationship issues? Pull your attention away from trying to dominate or feeling dominated and put it into a worthy project. Money concerns? Frame a coherent question and then concentrate on work or art that gets you out of your monkey mind and into the zone. The answers will come without you having to search for them.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…What if you knew your ultimate purpose for being here — and you were able to see through all of the mental roadblocks you’ve placed between yourself and your path? This could happen, and by the end of the month. To pull off this life-changing bit of magic, focus on two things: doing more of what feels good and acknowledging how much you hold back for fear of repeating a parent’s perceived shame or “failure.”

Cancer (June 21-July 22)… Something clicks for you mid-month. It’s like you wake up one day and realize you’re “on a mission from God.” You see there’s a job that needs doing and you intuitively know this task has your name written all over it. This connection to a purpose that is both personal and outside yourself re-energizes you, boosts your self-esteem, and could result in a promotion or positive career change.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…You’ve been down in a hole in the dark and the damp, battling your demons and wondering if you’ll make it out alive. But when warrior planet Mars moves into your creativity house on the 13th, you emerge into daylight and realize life will never be the same. With an unwavering commitment to your purpose, you find strength, belief and fresh reserves of power. Grrrrr!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…You know that when you fully engage in activities that have meaning for you, no one does a more thorough job. Money continues to be an issue, but money follows energy. Stop putting up barriers between your passion and the illusion of the “outside world.” Consciously choose instead to put more energy and focus into what you love and less into things you do from guilt or obligation.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…You’ve got to be cautious this month, because part of your energy is focused on healing past trauma or clearing old shadow beliefs. This could leave you needing extra rest and quiet time. However: a special relationship is moving towards you in time. This new person or group inspires you to believe in your dreams and opens your eyes to the invisible web that connects us all.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…Emphasize your true will. There’s a habitual emotional reaction you learned with mom or dad, a stall tactic that uses blame or dissociation to avoid pain. You can completely release this by the end of the month. When you do, you are rewarded with a powerful inrush of energy, passion, clarity and purpose.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Mars leaves your house of karma and enters your sign on the 13th, bringing renewed hope, energy and drive. Until then, stay focused on your inner game and take baby steps in the outer world. Remember that the inner always creates the outer. An ounce of inner freedom is worth a ton of perceived success or status.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…You could be in line for a surprise bonus by month’s end. This may come from an inheritance or sale of property or it might show up as energetic or emotional support from someone who believes in you. You’re seeing your life or career path with renewed clarity now. So you’ll know exactly what to do with this fresh capital.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…Someone from your soul tribe finds you and gives you a message that sparks a revolutionary change in your thinking. Suddenly the world opens up and reveals a network of like-minded souls you could intuit but couldn’t quite see up until now. It’s time to return from exile, reunite with your tribe, and start changing the world.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…Your investment in self-discipline — understanding your own personal needs and crafting a schedule and health plan that maximizes your life energy — ignites a revolutionary shift in your relationship to money. Like dominoes falling, your increased energy ignites your purpose, which motivates you to action, which brings other people’s money (energy) into your sphere.
