Mood of the Moment
This month is divided in two parts. While expansive, rather soft energies dominate during the first half of September; during the second half startling and renewing powers have their sway. In addition, however, there will be many inconjuncts which won‘t yet allow such transformation and renewal.
Until the middle of the month and with Pluto providing support, Jupiter and Neptune will ensure that we build up and provide ourselves with all the tools needed to confront the possible frustrations during the second half of the month with good cheer. It is then that flexibility is required as we could go on a roller coast ride; in addition to the extreme ups and downs, a continual stop-and-go will ensue. The good news is that we can rely on extra strong Libra support; it’s ability to always find back to the center is now extremely valuable.
The many inconjuncts point especially to one thing: Even if we are bursting with a wealth of ideas, life experiences, insights, and energies – we still may still find ourselves in predicaments where all offered solutions are sub-optimal. The question ”Why?“ leads nowhere. Rather, pragmatism is called for: always do the next reasonably promising step and then see what happens. The next door will open only after the last one has been closed behind you.
Clearly advantaged will be all those who already know that in order to feel safe in this world one need not build upon the past nor bet on the future, but merely has to relax into the present moment.
Aries: The topic of the first half of the month is ”Intimacy and Freedom“ – how and whether both can be reconciled. The balancing act between the two poles consists by not identifying oneself with either. In the second half, the emphasis shifts towards freedom; now is the time to recognize how we, due to our longing for closeness, allow ourselves to be chained to something that in fact makes us unhappy, narrow, and confined. These painful constraints can now be cut by mere willpower.
Taurus: In the first half of the month, relax into your very nature and enjoy the calm, for from mid-September onwards turbulences will arise…which by the way may be harbingers of the next year. That’s why a timely change of course may be advisable. In other words: Find out where things have become incongruous – in your relationships, work, living situation, everyday life, physical condition etc. From mid-September onwards, big changes can be targeted, while small ones can already be carried out.
Gemini: Your horizon expands during the first third of the month, which on the one hand is inspiring but may also confuse you. From the 10th onwards contacts, conversations and insights deepen, granting you the feeling of unusual abundance without pulling away the ground from beneath your feet. End of September the energies urging for change will get stronger but are difficult to handle. Come up with something so you can act with foresight and simultaneously blaze a new trail. Involve others also.
Cancer: Pay attention to the natural energy flow: it is useful to know which way it is flowing. Just as you don‘t need to sail with the wind in your back to get ahead, you can determine your course individually. You can decide what you want and don’t want, and put your intentions into action. The more you believe in their success, the more likely it is that you reach your goal. But remain relaxed, because the outcome is still not in your hand. The full moon demands compromises.
Leo: The soothing influence of Neptune and Jupiter may sweeten your first half of the month, but may also lull you to sleep. Stay realistic, wrestle for clarity and keep checking your thoughts by putting them into action. Everything seems simpler in theory than in practice. You will notice this during the last third of the month when you find yourself suddenly in-between the fronts. Now everything depends on how well you can assess the attitudes of others and correctly predict their moves.
Virgo: Three trines in the first half of the month instill confidence, strength, and beneficial indulgance. Should tensions arise, take a deep breath and just wait. It’ll clear up soon. The second half of the month, however, is critical. While there are no disasters looming ahead, the energy flow seems to be constantly interrupted or disturbed, and you feel weakened and unclear. Since we are dealing with inconjuncts here, there is no perfect solution. Do what you can, but only expect small and short-term improvements.
Libra: While the first half of the month will be rather unspectacular, during the second a kind of split will develop: On the one hand your need for harmony increases continuall, while on the other hand you sense revolutionary energies within and around you, trying to put everything upside-down. Both don’t really fit together well, so you can’t expect everything ultimately to resolve into rosy pleasures. No, you must take the challenge! It is a matter of defending a higher harmony – fight!
Scorpio: In the first half of the month you can fall back on remarkable clarity and deep insight, during the second you are encouraged to get active. But a lot of sensitivity is required if you want to prevail. You run the risk to get yourself bogged down and finally be at odds with yourself and everybody around you. Learn from the mistakes you made around the turn of the year and find more creative solutions now. Look for fair compromises, even if they slow down your activities.
Sagittarius: The first half of the month showers you with fulfilling encounters, and even if alone, you’ll experience blessings and abundance. But don’t expect miracles, little is being manifested just yet. Instead enjoy the expansion of your inner space and nurture your inner being. The second half of September requires a lot of patience, particularly in your relationships, in conversations and when learning. You tend to come up with new demands again and again. Give less weight to what isn’t possible now, in fact it is less important than you think.
Capricorn: Important discussions, negotiations and agreements are under a particularly good star in the first half of the month. The second half is difficult, for you as much as for almost all other zodiac signs: New challenges crop up all the time. Don’t try to prove or substantiate your power. Even if this could succeed, it will make you lonely and unhappy. If, however, you strive to find solutions that will equally satisfy everybody concerned, you yourself will benefit the most.
Aquarius: The month starts Neptunian and becomes increasingly Uranian. This means, at first a relaxed attitude of laissez-faire is appropriate, which should be replaced by a more hands-on intervention. In the last two thirds of the month moral courage is required and the guts to carry out your unconventional ideas. Going for it alone, however, is problematic; look for partners and colaborators for your ventures. See yourself as part of a larger context in which your ideas can be fruitful.
Pisces: In the first half of the month you must face several questions and concerns that demand specific answers. No worries, you need not know everything, a definite answer may also be an honest ”I don’t know (yet)“. In the second half of September things are slow. Not a good time for wishful thinking! Take one step at a time and once you have done it let go of the expectations connected with it. Reassess the situation over and over and also determine your goal anew.
