September 23 Birthday Horoscope
The Year Ahead
Forecast for September 2009 to September 2010
If You Were Born Today, September 23: You are very engaging, quick-witted, personable, and magnetic. You have a mischievous quality that is generally good-natured and likeable, and that keeps you youthful no matter your age! You are what might be described as a gentle leader, as people naturally gravitate to you, but you are not aggressive or showy by nature. Famous people born today: Mickey Rooney, Jason Alexander, Julio Iglesias, John Coltrane, Ray Charles, Bruce Springsteen, Ani DiFranco.
Your Birthday Year Forecast: The Sun in harmonious aspect to the Moon in your Solar Return chart is a pleasant aspect, suggesting that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another this year. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. You are likely to be on top of your game this year for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
Saturn is transiting conjunct, and Uranus will later oppose, your Sun this year. 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!
There are likely to be times this year when you feel pressures, responsibilities, and perhaps some feelings of hardship and going it alone. New responsibilities are likely to present themselves, or you are required to take your current responsibilities more seriously. Although Saturn's influence is traditionally considered restrictive, it does not have to be a depressing influence by all means. Some people react in such a way, but others benefit greatly from the stark realism that now enters their lives. The kind of progress you make now may not seem significant for the time being, but you will look back on this period of your life as one in which you truly made REAL progress towards your goals. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. You are likely to cut out some of the frivolous things in your life this year.
Things will certainly speed up for you later in your birthday year, when Uranus opposes your Sun. At that time, you might often be tempted to throw out practical or traditional considerations in favor of more exciting or stimulating endeavors. Unexpected changes in plans or events can test your patience. However, they could stimulate you to try new approaches and they certainly act to cut boredom. Your creativity is stimulated, but so is your excitability and your need for freedom. You are likely to be more outspoken than usual, perhaps even rebellious.
The Pluto transiting square Sun influence you have been dealing with in the past while is lifting this October and November, which also has the effect of lessening some of the intensity and heaviness in your life. Ideally, you have come out of that experience with a stronger sense of self.
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 of sorts. 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 a creative aspect to Mars and Neptune, and this helps you to find creative outlets for self-expression, as well as energy and drive to make a better life for yourself. Positive outcomes in competitive activities, including sports and business, as well as in artistic endeavors, are more likely.
Mercury trine the Moon's North Node suggests making contact through learning, communicating, and mental pursuits. It suggests an intellectually stimulating year in which the exchange of ideas with others figures prominently. Mercury is also conjunct Saturn, which sometimes suggests a need for solitude when you work, or a year in which you often retreat to work on specific tasks on your own. You might be required to travel for business purposes. It can also indicate that young people in your life are more mature or serious in their approach to life. Thinking in realistic and practical terms is your best bet, and the need for tangible results for your efforts is strong. However, Mercury is also opposite Uranus, and your thinking (as well as speech) can run ahead of yourself at times! This can translate to having too many ideas to implement, or expressing yourself too hastily. Outside interferences with your projects is another possibility. It will be necessary to ground yourself from time to time, and make certain that your goals are realistic and doable.
Venus trine Pluto suggests that romantic relationships and attractions have a fated quality to them this year. This could be a year when you fall in love, and this could be with a person, an activity, or a cause! Meeting someone who transforms your life, and more specifically your values and attitude towards love, is possible under this influence. Strong existing relationships are likely to grow and transform in rewarding ways, as you are more open than usual to intensity and passion. Your finances could also improve dramatically this year, while impulsive spending could keep you from saving any of it if you're not careful. Venus is also in semi-square aspect to Mars, and you are more acutely aware of your powers of attraction. Romance, love, and sexuality occupy your mind more than usual. You can enjoy an increase in personal magnetism (as well as libido!), but be wary of competitiveness or tension in existing love relationships, as this aspect ignites your passions in general, whether they‘re feelings of love or anger!
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.
Some solitude or increased responsibilities might be part of your life this year, as you gather strength and learn just how much you can rely on yourself. Changes are necessary in your life, and the need to break free from outdated attitudes and restrictive circumstances becomes apparent and even insistent towards the end of your birthday year. New contacts in your life are mostly helpful, however, and your popularity is likely to increase overall. Romantic relationships may be rocky, but ultimately rewarding and transformative.
2010 will be a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It's generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice - take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
