10 Oct Astrology September 2009 horoscopes: Predictions for all 12 zodiac signs
Pleaides NASA/JPL-Caltech/J. Stauffer
It’s a month of repeats and corrections (Mercury is retrograde most of the month) and a last clean sweep of the stage before the scene changes completely.
You will find a few big rats back stage that still need to be trapped, caged and let free into the wild. A stage manager is still calling out cues telling you to keep your nose to the grindstone. And, (as if we all haven’t had enough of this sterile performance of Saturn in Virgo), the final scene features ghosts from the past. It will be a humbling experience.
Trailers of new scenes from future episodes of “Saturn in Libra” appear as the new actors prepare to enter. Except for a few crazy backtracks, reruns and players that we thought were let off the show years ago, the new season is about to begin.
The Universe’s choreographer (really Mercury in disguise) calls for a few more rehearsals, (some of you were pretty spaced out during the first run), so pay attention to the tiny details this month, otherwise you will enter the new stage, out of sync and fumbling the routine.
No hiding in the crowd this time, everyone is looking right at you and how you relate to everyone else, they are even looking at your shoes and fingernails. I know it’s a pain to make yourself up every morning and put on a face and watch the tone of your voice on that business call, but you got to learn the lines, learn to use your voice box as a fine instrument and your body and appearance as an actor his costume and prop. There are some very rare actors, that have such a genuine sense of self; their appearance is the last thing you see. If you can manage to be so real, then just wing it and improvise. If you can’t muster up a real self, then get a shave or haircut, buy some new shoes, read a few books on diplomacy and take a few voice lessons, you’ll be surprised how far the costume change will take you these next few years.
Finally, don’t forget to please let go of those few people in your life that have been sucking you dry, keeping you on a long leash, promising you future perks you never see and are just plain dead weight. As charming as some of these vampires can be; it’s now or never, otherwise you’ll only have yourself to blame for your empty gas tank and stalled life experience. Enjoy!
If the joy of living has slipped silently away, it may be the burdens of life that have taken their place. You have a do-it-yourself attitude lately mostly because of some workaholic mission you have convinced yourself only you can do. It is an erroneous belief to think everything can be put in order right now. In any case, neither have you finished or collected all the data yet. These responsibilities on your back really are too much for one person and one top of it all, no matter how much you try to fend off any further complications, disagreements and misunderstanding will continue this month to plague your efforts.
What redo, re-edits, repeats and lessons are on schedule this month?
You will get a second chance to see diplomacy works better than aggression.
Just to confirm your suspicions, your incredible super power that sniffs out possible threats and betrayals is right on the mark. There are underhanded and manipulative people about who might take advantage of you. But, you will be pleased to know that when that partner, friend, colleague or family member returns, you are going to handle the situation in a different way and you will win this time; not because you win the fight, but because you loved yourself enough this time, not to fight at all.
A silent power slips into your bag of tricks as you learn to step back from over identification with your daily toil and from your significant others without ignoring them. You also discover a new type of consideration without resorting to your usual busyness and abrupt demeanor.
Within the month of September, three people will confront you. Not the ghosts of Christmas past, present or future, but people in physical form that may seem shockingly familiar. The source of their familiarity is that they will somehow symbolize in the flesh some shadow figures of your subconscious. They will show you parts of yourself.
One person will be over emotional and dreamy. The other will be ambitious and crafty and the last person will be ambitious and na?ve. They will annoy and attract you. The reason they are there is for you to see the personality pitfalls that exist in your own shadow or blind-spot. If you succeed in recognizing their true existence within yourself and resist battling the outer people representing these parts of yourself, you will win big.
If you speak your mind and your truth without having to convert or demand anyone like or agree with you, you will win big.
If you stand in your power, at least briefly (and it’s been a while), you will ride on a huge wave of emotional release.
The wave lands on a new shore with a new home or maybe new work or a new love interest by month’s end. What’s most important though, is you finally get to see those parts of yourself (everyone has been trying to tell you) that trip you up for years. A bonus of this discovery is a new found faith in either yourself or Spirit or God or whatever you truly believe in, accompanying you on the rest of your life’s journey. Don’t scoff at this prediction. Even though faith in yourself or whatever you believe in is intangible, without it you can’t truly enjoy all those tangible things anyway. Welcome its return.
Worry anxiety and maybe a few sleepless nights are in store. You are probably asking yourself why it’s always such an uphill battle. Why is there always so much competition, frustration and gossip around? The voices inside your head and the endless loop of “what ifs” and “yes, buts” are plaguing your peace of mind.
You feel your fears are justified and they might be, but you jumped the gun and let those demons out of your subconscious and out into the outer world. You manifested something alright, but probably your worst fears. It really isn’t as bad as it seems. But, how can one possibly convince a Gemini that they are fixated on this one path, this one way or conclusion and one way out of this situation? Usually, you either resort to being obnoxious or pull out your phone book and contacts list and vent your frustration. It won’t work this time. This time, you will have to rise to the challenge, stop freaking out, stop running around like a chicken with your head cut off and confront the situation directly and methodically.
If you take a deep breath, focus your will, and stop focusing on possible headlines for the National Enquirer, you will notice a strange out-of ?the?blue solution present itself. You may or may not win this challenge and not that you believe in synchronicity or guardian angels, but you will be lifted out of the difficulty by the end of the month. The bright idea, the “aha” moment will come. You mind as well, not run yourself and everyone else into frenzy and panic for no reason. Hopefully you will realize this month that there are other behaviors you can add to your repertoire of public relations skills that get the job done and those ideas of yours, implemented.
It’s time to steer your life back on course. While things are indefinite and transitioning, this is your chance to steal back the wheel and drive yourself into a couple new ventures. You are going to have to juggle though. Whether it is balancing an aggressive new start of some new endeavor with your old work or learning something completely new while cleaning up the loose ends of the past, it’s going to demand some discipline.
It really isn’t the time to sit and wait for the rewards of past work just yet; as they will be delayed. Why? Because the universe wants to make sure you know how to navigate and be flexible. Obviously things don’t work out here the way you think. You think you do something and you will be compensated, and then you start something else and you will be compensated for that. It’s not like that in reality, so your rigidity and concepts have to change. The new and the old will intermingle this time. Really, you can rewrite some of the rules if you like. It’s so boring when you follow them like gospel.
Though you are just recovering from a few setbacks (maybe some bad advice from a friend or some outlandish financial fairytale), there is one more, last and final decision to be made about some relationship in your life, whether personal or otherwise. It’s pretty obvious to you now that you have outgrown a certain person, and this is a tough thing for you to accept. If you don’t let go willingly, the universe will write up a more intense scenario, even a betrayal or disloyalty, for you to finally see it’s over and it’s time to abandon the relationship.
You are finally feeling slightly more attractive lately. Your old charisma is returning but there is still a tinge of mistrust and possible hopelessness in the air. You are on shaky ground after all you have been through and are still a bit confused and indecisive.
What will help you through this last preparation stage is to stay focused on the choices that actually are showing some reward right now. Concentrate temporarily on those activities that are actually paying up front right now and not on the “grand schemes” racing through your mind. You are a hopeless escapist at times and there is no way escapism will work this time.
Even your fantasies of falling hopelessly in love or being intoxicated by some new passion or faraway “better place” have got to be tempered and reigned in. If you are in too much of a heated state, it would be best to let off the steam through some activity, a change of scenery or a night out on the town and get it out of your system.
You have come a long way; those debts are being paid off, you are on the right track and have worked hard. Try valiantly not to sabotage all this at the last moment with some na?ve, spontaneous, and unrealistic daydream or some loser, scam or snake oil salesman
You’ve just rounded a critical bend. This is the last stretch. Though you worked hard for this new found freedom, these victories, though so worth the effort, may have been empty of lasting satisfaction. But, you may just be too tired and burned out to enjoy the new plateau you just reached.
There were and are those who took advantage of your service, dominated you and left you isolated in your struggle. This is a time to reset your balance and rest. It’s a time to tie up the loose ends and clean the last dusty corners of your outer experience before launching your new plans and ideas.
In the meantime, a wave of nostalgia will come over you. Some old memories and lost opportunities will resurface. People and places will remind you of some better times but most importantly will remind you of past skills and dreams you can access again and bring with you into this next phase of experience.
A chance encounter will ignite a desire for companionship whether for friendship or partnership. It would be a good idea to heed the message. It might not be with this particular person, but it is a reminder not to travel the road alone. Also, mixing it up and losing yourself and finding yourself again, transformed by the experience is good practice.
By the way, the assistance you need will come through by the end of the month.
Not quite sure whether to call this period the “coming of spring” for Libra or the cold, cold winter upon you. There is a time of rebirth and reconstruction ahead, but I’m afraid this September will only be speculation about what your future may hold. Actually, the first draft of details and plans will probably be on the table next month.
What could probably be said with certainty is that there is a restlessness and dissatisfaction that permeates this period. Some of you have gone through huge changes and uprooting. Family member’s come and go; you had to fight almost every day to maintain your position in the world and the petty details of daily life and the endless list of family demands, took up much of your time and still will.
You are and were happy enough to distract yourself with friends and entertainment. You even had fantasies that some of these “friends” or even “children” were indeed more important and intimate partners than they in fact are. And maybe they are, but you won’t see it. This month it is unfortunately becoming all too obvious they were with you to fill their time or to gain something from you and if we are really honest you may have been doing the same thing to them.
The point is to become aware of the way you distract yourself. It is also a time to confront the fact that the changes you usually make in your life, always are in reference to or have to do with someone else’s opinion or desires. The Universe is prepping you to realize that any transformations of self, whether on the physical level or psychological level need to begin and end with you and your opinion; you and your desires.
It’s been quite a long time since you took advice from yourself or even truly have done what you want. You may have thought you were, but those desires were only choosing from a variety of “let’s just make-do.” It may be awkward at first and you may feel fragile in the beginning, but this is the time to take those first steps all by yourself.
Another month of an unexplainable “magic touch”; this time attracting favors and gifts that will turn your attention to consensus reality and its bait of shimmering objects and fickle attention. The point is to enjoy but not get injected with too high a dose of stuff that will get you addicted. We wouldn’t want Scorpio to lose his or her edge and general mistrust of the “status quo.”
You may feel pulled to and fro, up and down. Your mind may be racing from elation to depression, hope to despair and worse of all, may sneak past the darkness of the void, one last time. You’ll want to avoid the Void. You’ll also want to take note of how all these intense emotional states you meander through so effortlessly are taking a toll on your joie de vivre?that’s “joy of life” in French. Just to bring the concept home.
Play as you will with your conquests, all that was gained really is a lot more wisdom and nothing else. The stability you seek still needs a bunch of cash and practical considerations. For now, you can bask in the Hollywood-like glow surrounding your surroundings.
The way to navigate September successfully will be to keep the stable clan close as a point of reference while you experiment with out-of-the-box solutions. It’s bizarre, even to yourself how diplomatic you are being with everyone, no cut-throat, vicious weed yanking going on right now. Your amiability is kind of scary too, because anyone who really knows Scorpio, it’s only a matter of time you’ll leave the “cute” lifestyle by the wayside and smirk as you see them all shake to the core from the Truth you will reveal.
You probably have been playing the good boy or girl role for a while now. You’ve been playing it so well you have come to the point where nothing said here could convince you that it’s all a bunch of unfulfilling social buzz.
You’d think since you did everything right that you would either get the position, the stability, the raise, the girl or boy and you might just have succeeded or will succeed very soon, and if it weren’t for the nagging feeling in your gut, you would feel great.
That nagging feeling comes from not being so sure everything you are planning and doing and spending your time and money on is really something that expresses the “true” You. The next feeling after that one will guide you to the thought: Who is the “true” You?
A little backtracking done this month, indulging in a retrospective, will guide you to the beginning of this long journey you took to gain social acceptance. Now, that you are in everyone’s good graces, there is the luxury to reflect on where you have been, where you are and where you are going.
The key to “getting” the most out of this period is to take a serious look at revamping that personality. It’s hard to do what needs to be done, because no one is going to challenge you to change. You already are pleasing to them all, charismatic and entertaining; no one dares press your buttons. Why improve on what is already great.
Well, gliding through life unchanging, just plain wonderful without having experience touch you, transform you, morph you into something incredible is at the root of that moodiness and sadness that overcomes you from time to time. Though you are full of new experiences, there is no new “You” there to experience the future in a different way. If you don’t change now and deepen, you will be bored with yourself and boring to others as well. They just won’t tell you.
A few power hungry sub-personalities are rearing their heads. You may think you just can’t stand being controlled anymore, but the truth is that angst is caused by you trying to control those who control you. There is no stopping the outside world and no stopping the demands of those significant others in your life. Not quite sure you will manage to integrate the shadow boxing going on with all these people.
Some advice: There is one way to use that control: Embrace your imperfections, scars and wounds and wear them proudly. Not flaunt or enumerate or tell stories of how they came to be, but something a bit more subtle would be to just let them be there, the scars exist and they somehow will make you more attractive to others and more genuine.
See, your accomplishments and things you do every day and the world events you pay attention all have their place, but you give them priority rather than give priority to expressing yourself as you are in an original way. Be in the game as its being played and not haphazardly winning some and losing some and then spending the rest of the time repeating the story over and over again.
The spending is out of control in some way. This is another one of those selves that haven’t been integrated yet. Luckily, you quantum leap into a mirage of joyful expansion while money maneuvers take place with buddies that play act dreams of lavish lifestyles. It might just be a night out at an expensive restaurant or buying the thing that makes you feel like a millionaire. Not to burst the bubble, but it is a bubble that probably will be popped by the credit card bill at the end of the month.
Dream the impossible dream, make the connections and don’t do anything you can’t afford. If you present yourself as you really are (as we said above), you will charm them more with your genuine personality and they might just trust you enough to believe in you a bit more.
This is one time in your life where your objectivity and observations will serve you and others well. This is one time no one will complain you are being cold, distant and metalizing, because your clear perception of the situation and your visionary outlook is what will heal the souls of those around you. You are called on this month by the universe to be the wise man or woman and to inspire and heal by putting everything into perspective.
Don’t forget though, that teachers and wise men don’t always practice what they preach. Not being able to walk the talk doesn’t make it less useful, healing or inspiring. So, don’t let that stop you.
Listen to those buddies of yours who are in the trenches though, telling you how it really is. Use the info as fertilizer in your daily life. Hopefully, by the end of the month a seed will sprout and guide your actions into more constructive directions. Being true to the “family” whether biological or workplace or spiritual is under scrutiny.
You’ll act on your will just fine, but the truth is you are running in circles in a space with very small people, with very tiny vision. Get out of there after your performance. This is a warning.
If you stay put and just preach and just get by on what you already have managed to hold on to financially or otherwise, you might just make the mistake of thinking all is well and that just because you expanded your mind and those of others, you actually have done your best and stretched your limits enough. You haven’t. Rethink the situation.
Don’t tell anyone but a secret doorway has been opened to spirit, just for you. Now, this is a secret and until you own it, until you are capable of walking through that doorway under all weather conditions, don’t disperse the Spiritual gift given you. And don’t go saving the world and tell them about the door.
There is a saying in magic circles that when you tell someone about your plans or spell or spiritual gifts, you will lose them. The reason for this isn’t some weird cosmic rule or Fate, but the psyche get a rise and some type of fulfillment from feedback from others and usually thinks that’s enough. It thinks it got its dose and abandons materializing and going through all the effort to complete the entire project. This gift doesn’t come often and if you try to share it with others now, you will lose it.
On the other hand, you are livelier lately, more playful, more engaged with life and the joy of creation? when you are alone. The moment you have to deal with others, some depressive, critical energy downloads into your biological body computer and makes you feel as if you did something wrong.
The lessons you need to relearn this month are how to deal with criticism in the coolest way possible. What words, humor, compassionate silence or body language are you going to use to respond to people who confront you? You get a chance this month to learn a few new tricks that more honestly reflect that inner Self you recently have engaged in dialogue with.
Instead of showing them the door directly, your new found ability to engage in this new wise way, will unconsciously lead others to this door effortlessly. The silence behind you actions and words, leads you all to victory and as an extra bonus, you get to be free of a lot of soul numbing daily responsibilities.
