Astrology Forecast for September 2008
For Everyone ~ A point of no return; a new beginning. The past is now officially past. There's no going back. The incremental change of recent times has finally added up to a major turning point. Stubborn, insurmountable obstacles will force a profound change in our lifestyle and life direction. However, just as we are all probably obsessing about how hard it all is, a pathway will open up before us. One stepping stone at a time, we will find a new way forward. We will be pressured to take each new step and not to turn back. But we will also be rewarded and excited by the gradual realization of a vast new potential. We may gripe about having to leave a lot of things behind, but we will also love the new way of life that is emerging.
Sign by Sign
Aries ~ Set boundaries. There are too many people that expect too much of you, now. They are threatening to overwhelm your private life. Their claim is real and you must make some concessions. But it still adds up to too much. Events in September will help you set boundaries that everyone can understand and accept. Both idealism and practical financial planning will help you find a solution. Things will get easier as September progresses. Many people are in line for the resources you seek, but your needs will be met.
Taurus ~ There’s a big course correction just ahead. The future that is quickly emerging is different than the one you had expected. You won’t have to sacrifice your financial goals or your most cherished dreams. You might have to scramble a little to keep everything on schedule, and maybe along a different track. But things look worse than they are. You have more power than you realize. Your influence is subtle but considerable. You will need to shape events, but that won’t be hard because people will seek your guidance.
Gemini ~ You saw all this coming. The delays are about over. You can’t avoid or put off the changes anymore. You can’t control them, either. Neither can others. The effects are noticeable in your personal and social life as those close to you make necessary adjustments. Be grateful that you had the last few months to prepare and to negotiate a better deal. There is a new, exciting air of mystery and anticipation about the future, though. These changes will help those in charge with finances. That will eventually benefit you.
Cancer ~ No going back. You’ve probably watched events build from a distance, half hoping that nothing would ever really happen or things would go back to normal. Powerful people have been making big decisions and developing policies in private. This month, they will be made public. The effects will quickly become apparent in your life. You will be shielded from the worst of it. Lasting and important new alliances are now developing in your life. Recent events have put you beyond the reach of opponents. Things will work out well financially.
Leo ~ Let others inspire you. You are beginning to realize that you have an important role to play in shaping future events. But the landscape has changed dramatically. Circumstances might slow or even block progress along certain familiar avenues. There are barriers, but there are also many new opportunities. Take your cue from partners no matter how unrealistic they seem. With their needs as your guide, use your considerable ingenuity and force of personality to forge a new pathway that everyone can use. Your professional situation will continue to improve.
Virgo ~ A firm hand is needed. Many want to continue down the same road. You’ll have to tell them that road is closed. You know from personal experience that things absolutely must change, starting immediately. If they want to keep the money coming in, they have to keep up with rapidly changing times, and so must those in your immediate circle. Your task will get easier as others get used to the new order of things. Despite all the turbulence, initial results will be encouraging. That should help you convince the doubters.
Libra ~ All roads pass through Libra. Things are changeful and confusing and everyone is out looking for answers. It isn’t that you have all the answers or that you have a lot of power over the situation. It is just that your influence with everyone is running high. Coincidentally, just about all of your personal energies are devoted to understanding and solving the problems everyone else is having right now. Dealing with the situation can be fun and inspiring and a little mysterious. Working from home can be relaxing and profitable.
Scorpio ~ Follow your innermost voice. Your own most familiar and reliable instincts will provide ample inspiration and guidance in these confusing times. However, to succeed completely, you will have to listen to voices from deeper within you, voices which you often ignore or even reject. If you do, you will gain surprisingly accurate insight into events and what everybody else is really thinking about them. Your ties to the community will grow deeper and stronger. They will provide substantial and lasting benefits to you and to the community you live in.
Sagittarius ~ A bend in the road. Those in charge won’t allow some things anymore; those at home are making demands; changing times are forcing your hand. However, the future is now looking more promising and the road ahead is actually looking clearer than before. Despite the occasional disruption, the stars suggest a more relaxing ride ahead for Sagittarius. Concentrate on establishing a satisfying and sustainable new lifestyle. Work to consolidate your finances and keep them stable. It’s a good time to lay the groundwork for a project to pursue further in coming months.
Capricorn ~ Power of the purse. Ready cash is tough to come by. It’s hard to get the green light for projects. However, Capricorn knows that things have started to move forward. You hold the key. You are uniquely well positioned to pull scarce resources together, coordinate efforts and point people down the right road. You have an almost magical ability to create something where others see only obstacles. You need to schedule extra time for rest and relaxation. Being both the driving force and guiding hand can wear a person out.
Aquarius ~ Countdown. You’ve been taking your time about making a choice, trying things out. However, the planets have laid down a marker. The time for firm decisions is on the horizon. You should begin working in earnest on the difficult financial choices you’ve been putting off. In the months ahead, the price of delay will become increasingly clear and events will take attractive but unrealistic choices off the table. A new cycle of growth and prosperity is coming, but it won’t arrive until after you’ve made a few tough financial decisions.
Pisces ~ A new balance. For many years, you’ve been overly assertive and overly independent to defend yourself against pushy, controlling people. You’ve also ignored the wishes of people you should take more seriously. You’ve dwelt in your own little universe. This resulted in too much freedom and an uncertain path through life. You will soon be surrounded by powerful but caring people. And you won’t find it so easy to ignore the wishes of those older and wiser than yourself. The result will be a gentle, long overdue and very beneficial reality check.
