September 17 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: September 17
The Year Ahead
Forecast for September 2009 to September 2010
If You Were Born Today, September 17: You’re a very practical person, yet also attuned to spiritual values. You expect a lot from others, but even more from yourself. The tendency to be controlling should be watched, as well as the tendency to be overly controlled and self-contained. You are very hardworking and have amazing organizational skills. Famous people born today: Hank Williams, Anne Bancroft, Elvira, John Ritter, William Carlos Williams, Roddy McDowell.
Your Forecast: The Moon is in its Balsamic phase in your Solar Return chart, marking this year the end of an important cycle, or stage of growth, in your life. You take more “down time” than normal, and this is natural, even good for you. This is a year in which you are closing important projects or “chapters” in your life. You may be itching to do something new, but you are perhaps unsure about what that “something” is! The year, in a general sense, is best used as a meditative time for inner searching. It is a time for letting go of the past in order to prepare for the new. Although the new is still totally unrecognizable, it is important to allow the necessary surrender to the unknown.
Saturn is conjunct your Sun and opposed by Uranus in your Solar Return chart. There is a struggle in your life now between what you feel is safe and familiar, and changes that seem to be forced upon you, or that you intuitively know should be made. An important structure in your life needs to be left behind, or to be totally rebuilt in order for you to move forward more confidently and genuinely. There is likely to be a fair amount of ambivalence in your life, as well as procrastination, but it’s important to recognize what part of your life needs revamping, or the cosmos will decide for you!
With the Sun trine the South Node, your popularity might step up a notch this year, and you might be taking on a role as a leader. You are likely to form new relationships or connections that further your spiritual growth, or to enhance existing relationships with a spirit of camaraderie. People in authority regard you favorably. Events take place in which you feel like you are moving forward into a new phase of your life.
The Sun also forms creative aspects to Mars and Jupiter, and this helps you to find creative outlets for self-expression, as well as energy and drive to make a better life for yourself. You are likely to enjoy good humor, optimism, and a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains. The energies of this influence favor negotiations, deals, legal matters, reasonable speculation, and travel. Positive outcomes in competitive activities, including sports and business, are more likely.
Mercury is square Pluto in your Solar Return chart, which introduces some intensity in your thought patterns and interactions with others. Try to avoid coming on too strong with your opinions. You are hungry for deeper meaning, but a suspicious attitude, or making mountains out of molehills, wont serve you well. Some secretiveness is possible. At times, you may have a troubled mind and some mental anxiety. On the other hand, it can suggest the ability to engage in deep, penetrating communication this year. Mercury governs speech, and you will need to watch what and how you communicate. Something you write or say could lead to opposition from others. Your need to investigate and read between the lines is strong this year. Its best used for research and increased awareness of psychological motivations, both of others and yourself.
Venus opposite Chiron and Neptune around the time of your birthday this year puts the focus on love and romance in your life, but you could encounter problems due to overblown expectations. You might fall for fantasies of people rather than for who they really are. Find a way to strike a balance between self-gratification and the obligations of daily life. Try to avoid taking risks with love and finances that stem from restlessness or unrealistic expectations. There’s no reason not to have some fun with this sociable energy, but you would be wise to keep things in moderation. Venus inconjunct Neptune can throw a few curve balls your way, bringing excitement, yet also some instability, to romance and/or finances this year.
Mars is in creative aspect to both Jupiter and Saturn, which gives a very nice feeling of purposefulness and conviction. You are able to hold yourself together well, and deal with others both straightforwardly and responsibly.
Jupiter conjunct Chiron and Neptune in your Solar Return chart suggests that idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses have more significance in your life this year. You may experience an increased need for greater understanding, wisdom, and awareness, as well as increased interest in the healing arts and holistic health this year. It may be a time during which you reconsider or revamp your personal belief system. Everyday, ordinary life may not always satisfy, as you hunger for a more idealistic life.
Saturn in opposition to Uranus around the time of your birthday suggests some restlessness. Attempts to assert your individuality, freedom, and originality undermine your feelings of groundedness and security. Yet, you are not satisfied when you conform. There may be sudden and unexpected twists that force you to do something different or that help free yourself from old habits. Adjusting your plans is in order, and striking a balance between convention and innovation is the challenge. Setbacks tend to be temporary and often lead to new, more creative paths or solutions. Ambivalence is likely and could color many of your interactions.
You’re likely to make new friendships and enjoy good times with an especially cooperative and accepting disposition this year. However, a tendency to put your faith in the wrong people or projects is quite strong. New contacts are mostly helpful, however, and your popularity is likely to increase. You are likely closing chapters in your life, or important projects, as you get ready for a new phase and turning point to come.
2009 is a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
2010 will be a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.
