Overview for this Month: Libra (All)

September 2015

While you are in strong demand this month, dear Libra, your inner world is especially important to you in September and a part of you is likely to remain a little reserved or withdrawn. Your self-confidence increases as Venus turns direct after a retrograde cycle on the 6th, although you are still a little more insular than usual. Interestingly, Mercury turns retrograde in your sign on the 17th, giving you even more reason to reflect and rest rather than push big decisions. If others are misunderstanding you in the second half of September, you may very well find new ways of expressing yourself that can be especially satisfying. As well, the Solar Eclipse on the 13th reinforces a need to look within. Friendships can be lively this month. You have new energy for repairing, soothing, and smoothing over differences if need be in your social life this month. You have a second chance to make things right with friends or groups, and for some of you, making changes in long-term plans is favored now, as you've gained new insights since the last week of July into what you truly value and what truly makes you happy. You have a lot of energy at your disposal to work with exciting new ideas and projects. There can be romantic opportunities with or connected to friends this month. September is important for seeking out balance between doing and resting, and slowing down can in fact benefit you. The Sun moves into your sign on the 23rd, and while you begin to get even more attention, you're nevertheless still likely to feel hesitant to throw yourself into new situations. Saturn's move into harmony with your sign on the 17th is a stabilizing one that will last until 2017. It also favors skill development and structured learning. As you move forward, you'll be communicating with more authority and can be in the position to earn more respect for matters of the mind. You'll also be getting your daily life into better order. The total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th brings epiphanies to your personal life and sudden awareness of relationship needs.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until September 23rd:

The Sun continues to shine its light on your solar twelfth house. This is the time to listen to your intuition, to take a break from the hectic pace of your life, and to reflect on what you have learned in the past year. You might naturally retreat a little and take more private time for yourself now. Your physical energy levels may not be up to par for the time being, and this is your body signalling you to take a break. This is not an ideal time for pushing forward with new personal projects and plans. It is better to finish up projects and tie up loose ends now.

From September 23rd forward:

The Sun illuminates your first house now, bringing issues surrounding your personal identity, appearance, outward behavior, and self-expression to the forefront. This marks the peak of your physical solar cycle, and you are in the position to make an impression on others, and to assert your personal influence. Spontaneity of expression is what this transit is about. You are ready to put your past behind you and to start a new personal cycle. You have presence and you project confidence. Increased energy and a renewed feeling of confidence is with you now, so take advantage. It's a great month to do something entirely new and pioneering—to go solo in some area of your life. This particular season of the year smiles on your personal endeavors. This is a time when you more easily get in touch with a true sense of your identity and purpose. The most enterprising side of your nature surfaces, and it's time to seize opportunities. Existing problems in your life may be overcome now by bravery and a straightforward approach to your life. There's nothing wrong with a bit of self-centeredness during this cycle, but avoid taking it too far. It's not the best time for team work and other cooperative endeavors. The spotlight is on you and your ability to lead, so make it a good one! Take steps to improve how you come across to others. It's time to carve your own path in life.

Solar Eclipse on September 13th

A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision-making in the week before and after an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective often is revealed in the week after the eclipse. There is absolutely no need to suspend projects already in progress. Essentially, it's better to take in right now--to observe and get in touch with feelings.

The Solar Eclipse marks a new beginning for you. Letting go of the past is necessary in order to move forward. This eclipse occurs in your solar twelfth house. This indicates a new approach to the ways you handle your inner world, the ways you compassionately serve others, and the manner in which you handle guilt. This is a period of review, letting go, and recharging your spiritual and, in effect, physical "batteries". Focus, now, is on fulfillment through service, empathy, and awareness of other's needs; but it can also be a time of withdrawal and some sort of retreat in a social sense, depending on your personal and natural predisposition. Some kind of soul-searching is in order, and the urge to find some level of emotional peace of mind will be apparent. These themes will be with you for the next six months.

Lunar Eclipse on September 27th

This is because new information that could change our perspective often is revealed in the week after the eclipse. There is absolutely no need to suspend projects already in progress. Essentially, it's better to take in right now--to observe and get in touch with feelings.

This Lunar Eclipse stimulates your solar seventh house. Surprises surrounding partnerships and relationships may be in store. Something that has been "in hiding" or brewing under the surface of things comes to light, or there is a significant fruition or culmination. This could manifest as, for example, a surprising revelation from a partner, a circumstance that calls for you to support a significant other, a flurry of activity prompted by a partner's needs or demands for your services from the general public, and other such possibilities. You now have a natural flair for sensing the needs and desires of the general public. You are likely to draw highly emotional and sensitive individuals into your social circle. Partnership "tests" are possible now, but so is a chance to truly connect to a special someone in your life.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Venus is retrograde from July 25th to September 6th

Venus retrograde in general: As the planet of love and values, Venus retrograde periods are periods during which we re-assess what--and who--we value. It is a period that most astrologers consider inopportune for getting married or starting a new relationship. Major financial undertakings are not advised during this period as well. Venus retrograde cycles are good times for creating budgets and financial plans, and for re-thinking our personal relationships. Old friends and lovers may re-appear, perhaps complicating current relationships. We are called upon to deal with relationship issues from the past. Events occur that seem fated or pre-destined. It can be a real challenge getting close to a lover during this period of time. Unorthodox, experimental, and non-intimate relationships may be favored. Relationships that have been especially challenging may come to an end during this cycle. However, strong relationships will survive it, even if there are a few bumps and bruises along the way. For singles, this is a good time for "eyes wide open" or experimental dating. It is not a time when people recognize the need for another person to complete them, or some people may be questioning whether they are with partners who actually fulfill them. This period is good for re-evaluating our relationship needs; but, again, major love decisions are best saved for after the cycle ends.

This Venus Retrograde cycle occurs for the most part in your eleventh house of friendships, groups, and aspirations. Your friendships or associations with groups may be a little strained during this period--a time when you may withdraw and others might misinterpret your intentions, or when friends are distant. You may get the feeling that friends are either disinterested or insincere during this cycle.

You are ruled by Venus, and you are likely to be more withdrawn than usual, which can be a source of concern for your lover. People from the past may resurface either physically or simply coming to the forefront of your mind. You may be dealing with past karma now. Your eighth house of shared resources and intimacy is Venus-ruled as well, and you might find your intimate life leaves you wanting, and that it's hard to find emotional (and financial) support when you need it most.

From September 7th forward:

Venus continues to move through your solar eleventh house. This is a strong time for putting your ego aside and lowering your defenses and simply enjoying people. It's a good time for networking and settling disputes if there are differences to iron out with friends. Cooperation comes easily, and warm friendships can be made during this cycle. Personal freedom is especially important to you right now, and you won't enjoy any associations that limit you. It can also be a good time for earnings from business.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from September 17 to October 9:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications involving legal affairs, travel, and education, as well as communications about the past, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. With Virgo ruling your twelfth house sector, somebody might be deceiving you or working against you, or nagging issues from the past may crop up and demand attention. Put off making solid travel plans if possible.

Occurring in your solar first house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to your body language. Others may misinterpret your body language, and you should be aware of a tendency to give off mixed signals. People in your life may complain that you seem emotionally distant. You may appear uncommunicative and hard to reach, or what you say comes out wrong. This is a time to review the manner in which you come across to others--not so much whether it truly reflects your nature, but more in terms of whether it is working for or against you. Don't worry too much if others aren't quite "getting" you for the time being. Things will change once Mercury turns direct, so you might decide to try to keep status quo for the time being. You might spend more time than usual when it comes to making decisions now, and this is natural. Rushed decisions may be regretted when you change your mind later on.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Until September 24th:

Mars continues to activate your solar eleventh house. You take a more direct approach to realizing your dreams now, rather than simply hoping and wishing. You might find that you have more energy and enthusiasm for spending time with others, but arguments now may be with or on behalf of friends. You can be especially effective at encouraging others now, as well as at leading or organizing a group.

From September 24th forward:

With Mars moving through your solar twelfth house, this is the time to research and reflect upon your goals. It can be a time when past actions catch up with you--and this is not necessarily a bad thing! It could also be a time when much of your energy is channeled into private matters, or when you prefer that others not observe what you are doing. This is natural--you may just as well do your best work alone for now. Unconscious behavior patterns could influence the way you assert yourself. Some may experience insomnia during this phase, especially if they are not allowing themselves the chance to recoup and if they are not letting their intuition serve them. Others may enjoy a more active dreaming life (this includes day-dreaming), and, if allowed to run free, the imagination can serve them very well, especially with regards to goals and new concepts.

Overview Horoscope:

Your self-confidence increases as Venus turns direct after a retrograde cycle on the 6th, although you are still a little more insular than usual.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

All month:

The Sun travels through your twelfth house now, marking a time of retreat and regeneration. Think about the attachments you have--to things, people, and routines--and consider which ones are dragging you down. This is a time when competitive energies and the ego are on a bit of a break. It's not the time to push ahead with brand new projects. Rather, it's a time of reflection, dreaming, and recharging your batteries. Situations that have naturally outgrown their usefulness in your life can now be put behind you. Endings of natural cycles may be part of the picture at this time of year. Your energy is largely applied to personal and private affairs now. Your disposition is introspective. Rest and reflect, and prepare for a more outgoing cycle when the Sun moves into your first house.

Solar Eclipse on September 13th

This Lunar Eclipse stimulates your solar sixth house. Surprises surrounding work, working relationships, daily routines, or health issues are in store. Something that has been "in hiding" or brewing under the surface of things comes to light, or there is a significant fruition or culmination. Flaws come to light and demand a clean-up. This could manifest as, for example, a work project coming to an end or bearing fruit, a surprising announcement on the job, a circumstance that calls for you to support a co-worker, a flurry of activity prompted by the demands of work or for your services, a surprising health matter, and other such possibilities. You can use this surge of emotional energy to make positive changes to your routines. Do something to improve your work conditions if they are annoying you--even if it's a small act of kindness with a co-worker or bringing in something to brighten up your desk or office. Get going on your exercise or nutrition program that you've been toying with in your mind.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

From September 6th forward:

With Mercury in your solar first house, you are most inclined to speak up about matters that you previously were only mulling over. Your disposition is more intellectual than usual now, and self-expression comes easily. You are sharper than usual--more observant, and more inclined to "live in the head". Relationships with siblings, neighbors, classmates, and casual friends may become more prominent in your life now. It is likely that you will initiate discussions during this period, evaluate your appearance and the impact you have on those around you, and make contact with others rather than stay chained to any one place or activity. This is the time to be direct and to communicate your needs and interests. You are more inclined to talk about yourself and your personal past now. This may also be a restless time when it is difficult to turn the thinking process off when it would be better to relax! It is an especially fruitful time for any endeavor that requires dealing with words, ideas, and facts and figures. Your demeanor is more youthful, perhaps mischievous, light-hearted, and non-threatening so that others may be more inclined to turn to you for advice or pleasant conversation. Using the power of words to attract what you want or to further your interests works best for you now.

Mercury is retrograde from September 17 to October 9:

Put off making solid travel plans if possible.

Occurring in your solar twelfth and first houses this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to body language and intuition. Others may misinterpret your body language, and you should be aware of a tendency to give off mixed signals. People in your life may complain that you seem emotionally distant. This is a time to review the manner in which you come across to others--not so much whether it truly reflects your nature, but more in terms of whether it is working for or against you. You may find that you are less able to rely on your intuition. Perhaps you're picking up the wrong cues or reading too much into situations. Whatever the case may be, for the time being, you may not feel that your intuition is serving you well. Be as non-judgmental as you can, but do keep an eye out for deceptiveness and falseness in others. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with close partners and family members; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until September 13th:

The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar eleventh house. During this cycle, you are planting seeds for the future, dreaming up plans that you might begin to develop two months down the road, if they still seem viable then. You are more aware of the benefits of networking, and you might find some great ideas through others now. You might be working in a team now. You could be questioning some of the rules you have been living by and you could be ready to try something totally new. You are more attracted to that which is progressive or unconventional during this cycle.

This period is good for re-evaluating our relationship needs; but, again, major love decisions are best saved for after the cycle ends.

This Venus Retrograde cycle occurs for the most part in your solar tenth house of career and reputation. For the time being, the social aspect of relationships on the job may be compromised somewhat. Be as non-judgmental as you can with co-workers during this cycle. You might find that your professional reputation is not as favorable as it typically is, at least not from your point of view. You may not know how exactly you would like to come across, and this could be the reason for any confusion just now.

You are ruled by Venus, and you are likely to be more withdrawn than usual, which can be a source of concern for your lover. People from the past may resurface either physically or simply coming to the forefront of your mind. You may be dealing with past karma now. Your eighth house of shared resources and intimacy is Venus-ruled as well, and you might find your intimate life leaves you wanting, and that it's hard to find emotional (and financial) support when you need it most.

From September 24th forward:

Venus graces your solar eleventh house now. Forming harmonious, warm social friendships, possibly related to group activities within a club, can figure now. You may meet someone through such group activities; consequently, your interests will be shared. Whether or not you do, the bottom line is that sharing interests with someone is what makes you happy during this cycle. Venus here enlivens your friendships and group associations with charm and grace. You are more peace-loving than usual and slightly detached on a personal level. If a romance were to begin during this time frame, it would be characterized by a strong feeling of camaraderie, but it could also be rather impersonal and perhaps lacking in depth and intimacy.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

This month:

Mercury continues to transit your solar twelfth house. This is a cycle in which clear decision-making does not come easily. You are paying more attention to unspoken or hidden elements of any circumstance. You are seeing all sides to any given story, and forming a definite opinion does not seem "right" for the time being. Thoughts turn to the past. It's a strong period for gaining different perspectives on problems or issues in your life, as well as for reflection and research, but not the easiest time for presenting your ideas.

Mercury is retrograde from September 17 to October 9:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications involving legal affairs, travel, and education, as well as communications about the past, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. With Virgo ruling your twelfth house sector, somebody might be deceiving you or working against you, or nagging issues from the past may crop up and demand attention. Put off making solid travel plans if possible.

Occurring in your solar twelfth house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to privacy matters. You may find that you are less able to rely on your intuition. Perhaps you're picking up the wrong cues or reading too much into situations. Whatever the case may be, for the time being, you may not feel that your intuition is serving you well. Be as non-judgmental as you can, but do keep an eye out for deceptiveness and falseness in others. You might unwittingly reveal something that you'd prefer to keep private. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating about your inner world now; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Until September 9th:

Mars continues to energize your solar tenth house now. You bring much energy, enthusiasm, and drive to your career or to directing activities in your life during this cycle. You may be quite competitive during this period, preferring to achieve and accomplish things on your own. This attitude can, in some cases, be seen by others as an instigating or otherwise offensive energy, so be aware of that possibility. This is a strong time for directly pursuing your goals, and, if you need that extra push or oomph to get a plan going, particularly a professional one, or to assert your desires, then this is the time. You are self-motivated now and your enthusiasm can be harnessed if you so choose.

From September 9th forward:

Mars is energizing your solar eleventh house now. Group activities and cooperative efforts are the best way to achieve your goals right now. In fact, you have all sorts of ideas about what you want to do. Avoid allowing the ego to attempt to dominate others. You prefer to lead a group rather than follow during this period, and there are certainly ways to do so without stepping on others' toes. As well, the best way to achieve your goals during this period is to work as a team, or to at least to do some networking. You may have more energy than usual to want to organize projects. Your humanitarian impulse may be stimulated. The role you play for other people in your life becomes the focus. You may feel that your schedule gets overloaded at this time with things to do (usually for others).

Overview Horoscope:

While you are in strong demand this month, dear Libra, your inner world is especially important to you in September and a part of you is likely to remain a little reserved or withdrawn. Your self-confidence increases as Venus turns direct after a retrograde cycle on the 6th, although you are still a little more insular than usual. Interestingly, Mercury turns retrograde in your sign on the 17th, giving you even more reason to reflect and rest rather than push big decisions. If others are misunderstanding you in the second half of September, you may very well find new ways of expressing yourself that can be especially satisfying. As well, the Solar Eclipse on the 13th reinforces a need to look within. Friendships can be lively this month. You have new energy for repairing, soothing, and smoothing over differences if need be in your social life this month. You have a second chance to make things right with friends or groups, and for some of you, making changes in long-term plans is favored now, as you've gained new insights since the last week of July into what you truly value and what truly makes you happy. You have a lot of energy at your disposal to work with exciting new ideas and projects. There can be romantic opportunities with or connected to friends this month. September is important for seeking out balance between doing and resting, and slowing down can in fact benefit you. The Sun moves into your sign on the 23rd, and while you begin to get even more attention, you're nevertheless still likely to feel hesitant to throw yourself into new situations. Saturn's move into harmony with your sign on the 17th is a stabilizing one that will last until 2017. It also favors skill development and structured learning. As you move forward, you'll be communicating with more authority and can be in the position to earn more respect for matters of the mind. You'll also be getting your daily life into better order. The total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th brings epiphanies to your personal life and sudden awareness of relationship needs.
