Your horoscope for September 1 to 7, 2011
Now through most of next week, the stars ease up on the throttle. The long weekend can be productive or relaxing. Enjoy your pick!
As of last week’s new moon in Virgo, we’re now heading into a major cleanup, fix it, and get-on-task chapter. Jupiter has recently begun its annual four-month retrograde tour, befittingly coinciding with the federal NDP’s search for a new leader. When a planet turns retrograde, it prompts a shift of perspective from external to internal referencing.
Jupiter, the mission planet, now asks the big questions. Where do we go from here? What are our beliefs and how do they shape what we create? What is of true value and meaning? What vision do we hold for our future? What knowledge has been gained through our recent experiences? Does that change anything? Does it change everything?
Jupiter retrograde in Taurus calls survival needs into review. How are we limited by our value associations, social divides, and cultural clashes? What is our money really worth? Can the world’s economy survive? Morally and materially, how do we replenish ourselves?
Due to Jupiter’s association with the karmic axis, we are entering an opportune four-month materializing chapter. It is time to correct, heal, and to envision beyond today’s limitations—to embrace teachings, apply knowledge, and to brave a new crusade.
March 21 - April 20
Over the past few weeks, have you noticed that you have been wandering through deep inner probing? Perhaps you have been looking for answers to questions you never thought to ask of yourself. This investigation process isn’t about solving a mystery. It is about the valuable insights that you gain along the way and the advantages they supply.
April 21 - May 20
You know where you’ve been, but you probably don’t know for certain where you are heading. The truth is none of us do. Put this uncertainty at the end of your worry list. If you want to optimize the best of the budding potentials, give your fullest attention to informing the here and now. Don’t project or prejudge. Instead, stay open and curious.
May 21 - June 21
Mercury’s retrograde cycle has likely provided enough fodder to keep you going for an extended period of time. Be reminded that the recent eclipses position you on a karmic fault line. You are navigating the bridge between what was and what can be. Keep focused on getting yourself to where you want to be. If you can envision it, you can achieve it.
June 22 - July 22
Faith is an essential component of a healthy consciousness. If it is lost or damaged, the ability to create from abundance takes a big hit. Since July, and probably much earlier, the stars have been asking you to search above the visible cloud cover. It gets easier now. Past the end of next week, you’ll gain more clarity and answers.
July 23 - August 22
Mercury retrograde has ended, but there’s still cleanup to do. One of the purposes behind this backtracking cycle is to reveal the deeper components of your insecurities or self-doubt. In turn, the prompt leads you to become more conscious of your instincts and to investigate their origins. Essentially, it’s about learning how to step out of your own way with greater agility.
August 23 - September 22
Whether you get away this long weekend or not, it’s the perfect time to journey into Virgo’s virgin domain. By this, I refer to its true meaning: to regain wholeness of self. Don’t let the influence of others displace yourself at centre. The sun, Venus, and Jupiter provide you with fresh confidence and ample bravado. Aim for a fresh start; this is your can-do moment.
September 23 - October 23
This is a time to review your plus—and not your minus—column. Aim now to distance yourself from your opinions, and search for your truths instead. They are not always one and the same. Take the lead in relationship matters; be first to say what’s on your mind. A new financial prospect or budding relationship will soon move to the next level.
October 24 - November 22
Even though a long weekend never seems long enough, Venus, Jupiter, and the sun will make this one as good as it can get. You can pack in more than usual, and still be game for more. It’s a good time to discuss plans, finances, or dreams; to clear up misunderstandings; and to ask for help or to offer it.
November 23 - December 21
Your march forward is both rich and complex. A lot is asked of you now; you hold high expectations, too. Opportunity can come dressed as labour or a gift; likely it is a mix of both. You’ll find some of the going is easy and glorious. Some of it is a grind. All of it is worthwhile.
December 22 - January 20
It’s up to you to set a precedent now. While it is important to define your rules and boundaries in clear terms, remember to also display a level of approachability. When others can better distinguish when you mean business and when you might be willing to negotiate, it will create less struggle and more win/win.
January 21 - February 19
Jupiter’s recent switch to retrograde takes you into deeper exploration. Are you getting the fullest value out of your ambitions, challenges, life, and loves? How can you make your money go further? Simultaneous to this re-evaluation prompt, you’ll find yourself situated in the direct path of karmic opportunity. Bright prospects are on the horizon.
February 20 - March 20
Work lies ahead, but for this next week you can ease your way along. Regarding a relationship or lost opportunity, as time passes, you’ll gain perspective. Once you understand more, you’ll find that you question, doubt, or regret less. Stay rooted in your newly found sense of deserving. It will open a new door—and soon.
