Horoscopes for the month of September 2017

Aries (Spring Equinox-approx. April 21st): As September begins, you may find it’s time to bring some
resolution and closure to things that are conflicting with your sense of being and purpose, and one of the
easiest ways to go about this is through detailed conversation. While money may be tight, especially if it’s
money from relations with others, you may find growth opportunities and challenges when it comes to
keeping your emotions in check. As the month moves on, you may discover things quiet down quite a bit,
and that if you focus on the work place, you may make a lot of career success and progress. You may also
find that because of this, it is wise to put the fun gatherings on the back burner for a few weeks.

Taurus (Approx. April 21st to approx. May 21st): Challenges may abound the first part of the month
when it comes to standing up for yourself vs doing what is best for many people, so it would be wise to stay
emotionally detached and do what needs to be done. You may also find it wise to spend money cautiously,
and to take extra care around loved ones. As the month moves on, you may feel a shift in the air, and one
that is shifting to good things coming to you through the day to day work place, but only if you put your
energy and attention there. You may find some unexpected money comes your way through those efforts as
well. Towards the middle of the month you may also find your emotions are more tense than normal, but this
is because of past wounds that are not healed.

Gemini (Approx. May 21st to Summer Solstice)
: September may start off as a smooth month, other than
the Mercury retrograde that is currently occurring. You may also find connections with other people may pay
long term dividends, but not necessarily short term rewards. You may also find your attention and energy is
drawn more to the work place than may be comfortable. As the month moves on, you may see that things
require more work than in the first half of the month, but most of the work will center around your personal
relationships with people, so it would be wise engage in your people skills when possible. You may also find
challenges and growth opportunities in the workplace that were not there before, so it would be wise to
remember this when planning your month.

Cancer (Summer Solstice to approx. July 21st): The theme of the first few weeks may be that of
continual minor adjustments, so it would be wise to remain open and flexible. Money may be tight, especially
if it involves other people, so it would be wise to be careful with your spending. You may also find tension
present when it comes to your emotions, and the lesson to address here is to practice emotional control
whenever necessary. As September moves forward, you may discover things quiet down quite a bit, and
that there is more emphasis on the workplace, health, and the day to day life. You may also see that your
emotions become more under control, and that by listening to your intuition, you can achieve a lot of
emotional and spiritual success.

Leo (Approx. July 21st to approx. August 21st)
: Even though your birth month is late July through late
August, you may feel like September begins with many more good things coming your way, so if you stay
open and receptive to it, there may be a lot of love and maybe even some money headed your way. As the
month moves on though, you may notice those good vibes fade, and that there is more emphasis on the
workplace, so it would be wise to shift your attention when necessary. Emotions may be a source of tension
too, so it would be wise to maintain emotional control and to stay detached if possible. You may also find
that your personal relationships come more to the forefront, and can yield a lot of quick, positive

Virgo (Approx. August 21st to Autumnal Equinox)
: Happy birthday Virgos! Even though the first week or
two of September may not feel like it, this is your month to indulge in you. The first couple of weeks of the
month has to do with bringing things to closure in your day to day life, but this is because it is clearing out
the old to make way for the new. As September moves along though, you may notice that it feels like things
are returning to what you consider normal, and that you may even be drawn to the darker side of life. You
may also find that your personal relationships may become more pronounced, and that through adjusting to
them, you put yourself in a position to receive the good things coming your way. There may also be some
unexpected money coming your way through work towards the latter part of the month as well.

Libra (Autumnal Equinox to approx. October 21st): Focusing on you in all ways, the physical,
emotional, mental, and spiritual, would be a wise thing to work with for the first half of the month. Your
emotions may be out of sorts and challenged the first few weeks, but the life lesson here is simply to mature
and deal with things as they come up. As September moves forward though, you may find that it is time to
get back to work, and to focus on your health, with both requiring minor adjustments, so it would be wise to
plan accordingly and the beginning of the month. Your emotions may also smooth out towards the middle of
the month, so it would be wise to keep this in mind to better handle the things that may irritate you in the

Scorpio (Approx. October 21st to approx. November 21st): September may start off with a lot of
challenges and growth opportunities, especially as they pertain to taking care of the self, building towards
your greatest growth and good, vs moving forward behind the scenes. However, your emotional control may
be on point, so you may find all of this is simply a clearing out that needs to happen. As the month moves
on, you may find its time to get to work and to focus on the workplace. You may also find your personal
relationships are an arena that may require some minor adjustments for success. Your emotions may also
be running stronger at this time, which on one hand is good because it tells us your intuition will be on point,
but the down side is that if you’re not careful, they may color your vision in a negative way.

Sagittarius (Approx. November 21st to Winter Solstice): Wow, what a month if you’re a Sagittarius!
The month begins with a lot of energy at your disposal, especially as it has to do with taking care of you and
yours first and foremost. You may find there is a lot of emphasis on clearing out that which no longer serves
you, and that a lot of good things come your way through your personal relationships, so it would be wise to
stay on track, focused, and discipline in order to receive the blessings on their way. As the month moves
forward though, you may find that extra energy dissipates, and is replaced by a lot of good old fashioned
hard work, which is fine at the beginning, but if you’re not careful, it may be too much, and may thus cause
challenges and growth opportunities if you let it get to you. It would also be wise to play things financially
conservative during the last half of the month.

Capricorn (Winter Solstice to approx. January 21st): Emotions and emotional changes are the two
major themes to start the month, so you may find it wise to continue to practice emotional control, but also to
make the appropriate internal changes whenever necessary. A lot of the attention at the beginning of the
month may be ending some projects that are fun but not helpful, while at the same time keeping your
professional life on point. As the month moves on, you may find the emotions smooth out, and that the
cleaning out has been accomplished. For the entire month though, it would be wise to spend cautiously, but
also to tread lightly around the personal relationships in your life. While unexpected money may come your
way through the workplace, you may see it is easy come easy go, so be careful not to get too attached to it.

Aquarius (Approx. January 21st to approx. February 21st):
The theme for September as it starts may
be tension, but this tension is due to a lot of things resolving and coming to a close, so it would be wise to
take the intelligent and mentally clear approach to what comes your way. However, you may also see that
your personal relationships are moving along just nicely, and that the groundwork is being laid for long term
growth and prosperity. A lot of the tension from the first half of the month may dissipate as we get closer to
autumn equinox though, and that it is replaced by an emphasis on the workplace. While your emotions may
be challenged, you may also discover that it’s a perfect time to focus on your health.

Pisces (Approx. February 21st to Spring Equinox): Emotions may be the theme of the first half of the
month, as you find that the inner transformation that has been occurring for a while takes a deeper turn, as
the tension builds in the air. There may be a lot of clearing out that is occurring, but what is being released
is that which no longer serves you. As the month moves on, you may find the tension increase, and this may
particularly apply to the workplace. You may also find that money coming through work may be tight, and
that any health issues you have may come to the surface to be addressed. The short lesson for the month
is to mature in line with what comes up, rather than to dig in your emotional heels in resistance to what
needs to be accomplished for your overall greatest growth and good.
