Overview for this Month: Aries (All)

September 2015

Signs that you're ready to take charge of your work and health are everywhere this month, dear Aries, and this theme is only set to grow as you move forward. You have the powerful Sun and lucky Jupiter in your sector of self-care programs, daily routines, and work now. Shortly after the Sun leaves this sector on the 23rd, go-getting Mars enters it, and Jupiter won't leave here for another year. A Solar Eclipse occurs in this same sector on the 13th, allowing you to wipe the slate clean and start anew. As a result, you have all the power you need to make important changes. This can be about reorganizing your life, eating and exercising better, managing your time more productively, and working on the details of work, projects, and plans. September is a month for getting the first push towards making empowering lifestyle changes. Even so, mid-month brings a small hurdle to jump. It's important to make time for spiritual, imaginative, and reflective activities, or you'll lose the motivation and spark you have for your work. On a personal level, your libido is strong, passions are ignited, and expectations or needs from your relationships much clearer after the 6th. Personal magnetism is quite excellent. Even so, committed relationships may be a little distant or complicated from the 17th forward. Another important development this month involves Saturn's move into harmony with your sign on the 17th. This brings subtle but palpable strength to your attitude towards life, as well as a better ability to meet your responsibilities. Fortunately, this transit will stick with you until virtually the end of 2017. This transit, combined with Jupiter in your work sector for the coming year, points to a strong focus on work. Your public image can increase tremendously starting in October, and the work you do now can help improve this opportunity. The Lunar Eclipse in your sign on the 27th brings big epiphanies and may be a cosmic push to change gears in a relationship or about relationship needs.

Aries the RamOverview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until September 23rd:

The Sun puts a spotlight on your solar sixth house. This is a busy period that finds you tending to many different details of your daily existence--your work, various projects, organization around the home and office, your daily routines, and health matters. Your ego may be especially tied up in the work you do, so that you are proud and more creative than usual in your job. You may be in the position to take charge in your work, or to take charge of your health and diet. Sometimes this cycle relates to increased activities involving pets. You seek to perfect your skills or methods now, and you focus on the parts that make up the whole now in order to improve your daily life. As a result, you can be more critical than usual, but this process is necessary for you to sort out what works for you and what doesn't.

From September 23rd forward:

The Sun illuminates your seventh house. At this time of year, you have a greater need than usual to be with a partner. Bouncing ideas off someone helps you to better understand yourself. A partner provides a mirror for your own self-discovery. Now is the time to realize your own potential through a significant other. During this cycle, you focus on balancing your personal interests and objectives with your social life, or with those of a partner. The emphasis is on "us" rather than "me". You need the energies, companionship, and support of other people, and they may also seek out your support and companionship. It's important to include others rather than to go solo for the time being. However, bending too much to the will of another is not advised either. Social interactions of a personal, one-on-one kind are emphasized. Circumstances are such that your diplomacy skills are required. Your popularity is increasing, and is reinforced by your own ability to cooperate and harmonize. Your ego and pride are tied up in how you relate to others now. This may be an especially busy time for people who consult or work with clients one-on-one.

Solar Eclipse on September 13th

A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision-making in the week before and after an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective often is revealed in the week after the eclipse. There is absolutely no need to suspend projects already in progress. Essentially, it's better to take in right now--to observe and get in touch with feelings.

The Solar Eclipse marks a new beginning for you. Letting go of the past is necessary in order to move forward. This eclipse occurs in your solar sixth house, suggesting a new approach to work or health is in order. A new set-up in existing jobs or a new job altogether may be formed in the coming months, as well as a sense of renewal and reinvigoration with regards to your daily activities, health routines, and attention to practical matters. This is a phase when you have an increased awareness of the daily routines that keep you organized and of your own health.

Lunar Eclipse on September 27th

A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision-making in the week before and after an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective often is revealed in the week after the eclipse. There is absolutely no need to suspend projects already in progress. Essentially, it's better to take in right now--to observe and get in touch with feelings.

The Lunar Eclipse stimulates your solar first house. Surprises surrounding your personal plans and your personal presence may be in store. Something that has been "in hiding" or brewing under the surface of things comes to light, or there is a significant fruition or culmination. Your sector of personal appearance, initiative, and "me first" energy is involved. This could manifest, for example, as a sudden assertion of independence (even a temper tantrum), a situation that tests your leadership skills, a culmination or fruition of an important partnership, and other such possibilities. Finding a balance between autonomy and dependence is what this Lunar Eclipse is about for you.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Venus is retrograde from July 25th to September 6th

Venus retrograde in general: As the planet of love and values, Venus retrograde periods are periods during which we re-assess what--and who--we value. It is a period that most astrologers consider inopportune for getting married or starting a new relationship. Major financial undertakings are not advised during this period as well. Venus retrograde cycles are good times for creating budgets and financial plans, and for re-thinking our personal relationships. Old friends and lovers may re-appear, perhaps complicating current relationships. We are called upon to deal with relationship issues from the past. Events occur that seem fated or pre-destined. It can be a real challenge getting close to a lover during this period of time. Unorthodox, experimental, and non-intimate relationships may be favored. Relationships that have been especially challenging may come to an end during this cycle. However, strong relationships will survive it, even if there are a few bumps and bruises along the way. For singles, this is a good time for "eyes wide open" or experimental dating. It is not a time when people recognize the need for another person to complete them, or some people may be questioning whether they are with partners who actually fulfill them. This period is good for re-evaluating our relationship needs; but, again, major love decisions are best saved for after the cycle ends.

This Venus Retrograde cycle occurs for the most part in your fifth house of romance, pleasure, speculation, and children. Because the cycle directly affects your sector of romance and speculation, you should be especially wary of jumping into arguments with a lover and taking risks with gambling. You may feel you are on shaky ground in the romance department. You don't need to share all your feelings with a lover right now, and you shouldn't jump to conclusions if your lover needs a little space either. It can be hard to derive satisfaction from your romantic and creative activities for the time being. An old lover may resurface in your life, complicating matters.

As well, Venus rules your partnership and income sectors, and both of these things may come up for review during this retrograde cycle.

From September 7th forward:

Venus continues to transit your solar fifth house. Your popularity is on an upward trend during this cycle as others find you especially attractive and friendly. You may have the desire to dress well and in good taste. There is strength in your feelings of love and the power of attraction, which may open the door to new romantic relationships. Yet, you are not aggressive in your approach to love. Instead, you attract more if you allow yourself to be pursued during this cycle. Conditions are highlighted in connection with young people, and quite possibly a female child--a stronger bond could be formed during this period. You are feeling inspired creatively and romantically and you express your loving feelings quite openly now. Creative self-expression of any kind is favored at this time. You will also thoroughly enjoy artistic, musical, or cultural events and activities, especially in the company of a loved one. At this time, you instinctively know how to place yourself in the best light in order to make a good impression on others. Any love affair begun now will be characterized by good cheer, having fun, and a fair share of emotional drama!

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from September 17 to October 9:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications in general and job or health-related communications because Mercury rules these areas of your life. There can be delays or rethinking with these matters.

Occurring in your solar seventh house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to negotiations and one-on-one communications. Be as non-judgmental as you can with a partner. There may be the need to revisit old issues in a partnership, or there could be some communication problems with a partner. An ex-partner may resurface during this cycle. Misunderstandings with your partner now can do some damage if you (or your partner) focus on the choice of words instead of the meanings behind the words. If you need to talk through problems, try not to over-react to what your partner has to say. Mixed messages coming from a partner, or a disappointment, could occur now. You may not be as adept at mediating disputes for the time being, but it's a good cycle in which to reflect upon your negotiation skills with the goal of improving them. Re-thinking a partnership arrangement is possible now, but you should avoid jumping to any premature decisions. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with partners; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Until September 24th:

Mars continues to energize your solar fifth house. This brings increased energy and enthusiasm to romance, child-rearing, and creative or recreational endeavors. It can also bring some strife to these areas of your world in some cases. For the most part, however, a romance could pick up pace, you are self-motivated and inspired on creative and expressive levels, and your self-confidence is well-received by others during this cycle. You are more willing to take little risks and you are competitive in a mostly friendly way. In your enthusiasm to take the lead, try to be sensitive to and respectful of others' needs.

From September 24th forward:

Mars animates and energizes your solar sixth house. You have more energy for work and your daily routines tend to speed up during this transit. Perhaps you have a larger workload than usual. It's a great time to take charge of your health. You have much energy at your disposal to pick up (or step up) a health and physical activity program. It might be hard for you to work with others in a harmonious manner during this transit, and disputes with co-workers are possible. If you are feeling especially angry, frustrated, or restless, it would be wise to find little projects and things to do so that you can channel excess energy constructively. If health is affected, fevers or infections are more likely.

Overview Horoscope:

Signs that you're ready to take charge of your work and health are everywhere this month, dear Aries, and this theme is only set to grow as you move forward. You have the powerful Sun and lucky Jupiter in your sector of self-care programs, daily routines, and work now.

You feel most comfortable spending time with people on a one-to-one level, or with those with whom you share a personal history. Your own thoughts become clearer through dialogue with others.

The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar fifth house. This is a time when pleasure-seeking and creative activities come into focus and grab much of your attention. You are particularly personally charming in a spontaneous, natural way during this solar cycle. This is the time of year when you are ready to perform and to express yourself creatively. This is a very playful cycle, when you are inspired creatively and emotionally. It's a good time for recreation, romance, connecting with children, and enjoying and performing the arts. Your ego is tied up in your children, romantic relationships, and creative output now, so that you can be especially proud of these people and things.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Venus is retrograde from July 25th to September 6th

Venus retrograde in general: As the planet of love and values, Venus retrograde periods are periods during which we re-assess what--and who--we value. It is a period that most astrologers consider inopportune for getting married or starting a new relationship. Major financial undertakings are not advised during this period as well. Venus retrograde cycles are good times for creating budgets and financial plans, and for re-thinking our personal relationships. Old friends and lovers may re-appear, perhaps complicating current relationships. We are called upon to deal with relationship issues from the past. Events occur that seem fated or pre-destined.

This period is good for re-evaluating our relationship needs; but, again, major love decisions are best saved for after the cycle ends.

This Venus Retrograde cycle occurs for the most part in your fourth house of home and family. Relations with your family may be a little strained. You might want to wait until Venus is direct before you express your frustrations with family members! What you say now may be costly. Furthermore, if you take the time to think about things, your approach to dealing with these issues later (in September and October) is likely to be much more productive. The desire or need for warm relations with family members, or for support and a feeling of security, is especially strong but the path to satisfaction may be hard to find just now. This is a great time to think about how to improve your home, but not necessarily for going forward with entirely new projects.

As well, Venus rules your partnership and income sectors, and both of these things may come up for review during this retrograde cycle.

From September 24th forward:

Venus warms your solar fifth house. This is an expressive period for the goddess of love! It's natural for you to turn on the charm without even lifting a finger. You are especially attracted to aesthetic forms of recreation. You feel a little more playful now, and love matters tend to be laced with a touch of drama. That shouldn't be a problem--in fact, you kind of like it that way for the time being. More loving and appreciative relationships with your children may also figure now. Your powers of attraction skyrocket during this cycle. Yet, you are not aggressive in your approach to love. Instead, you attract more if you allow yourself to be pursued during this cycle. Creative self-expression of any kind is favored at this time. At this time, you instinctively know how to place yourself in the best light in order to make a good impression on others. Any love affair begun now will be characterized by good cheer, having fun, and a fair share of emotional drama!

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

This month:

Mercury continues to transit your solar sixth house. This is an excellent cycle for improving your skills, objectively identifying your weaknesses so that you can work on them, and for finding flaws in your work methods or approach to daily activities so that you can make necessary changes. You might be especially focused on list-making and to-do lists, as well as organizing things around you. The need to communicate about your work, health, and other daily affairs, or with co-workers, is especially strong now. Negative expression of this position is worrying about sixth house matters (work, health, pets, and so forth) rather than finding ways to improve these things.

Mercury is retrograde from September 17 to October 9:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications in general and job or health-related communications because Mercury rules these areas of your life. There can be delays or rethinking with these matters.

Occurring in your solar sixth house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to work, health matters, and daily routines. Be as non-judgmental as you can with co-workers and/or employees. Re-thinking the suitability of your job is possible now, but you should avoid jumping to any premature decisions. Work-related mess-ups can frustrate you, or you might need to redo work that you thought was complete. However, you might find that the refinements you make now will be very valuable later. Double- check your work before submitting it. It's a fine time for researching health and nutrition programs, as well as job skills and opportunities, but perhaps not the best time for beginning all-new programs. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with co-workers and health professionals; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Until September 9th:

Mars continues to activate your solar fourth house. More energy and enthusiasm is brought to your home life, but there can also be a tendency to stir up trouble if you are not careful to channel any excess energy into constructive and productive pursuits around the home. You desire to take the lead, but you should do so in a respectful way so as not to get anyone's goat.

From September 9th forward:

Mars animates and energizes your solar fifth house. This is a very self-expressive time when you have lots of energy, but not necessarily self-discipline to match. You have more energy at your disposal to express yourself creatively, through activities with children, romantic activities, hobbies, or sports. Your love life may step up a notch, and this could be an especially passionate time. You tend to put more energy into play and pleasure! Be careful not to burn the candle at both ends. Also, watch out for a tendency to want to gamble. You are more playful than usual, and especially magnetic. You have a likeably competitive, more energetic, and pleasingly assertive temperament during this transit. However, in some cases, you may be coming on too strong or aggressively, or meeting with aggressiveness in romantic relationships.

Overview Horoscope:

Signs that you're ready to take charge of your work and health are everywhere this month, dear Aries, and this theme is only set to grow as you move forward. You have the powerful Sun and lucky Jupiter in your sector of self-care programs, daily routines, and work now. Shortly after the Sun leaves this sector on the 23rd, go-getting Mars enters it, and Jupiter won't leave here for another year. A Solar Eclipse occurs in this same sector on the 13th, allowing you to wipe the slate clean and start anew. As a result, you have all the power you need to make important changes. This can be about reorganizing your life, eating and exercising better, managing your time more productively, and working on the details of work, projects, and plans. September is a month for getting the first push towards making empowering lifestyle changes. Even so, mid-month brings a small hurdle to jump. It's important to make time for spiritual, imaginative, and reflective activities, or you'll lose the motivation and spark you have for your work. On a personal level, your libido is strong, passions are ignited, and expectations or needs from your relationships much clearer after the 6th. Personal magnetism is quite excellent. Even so, committed relationships may be a little distant or complicated from the 17th forward. Another important development this month involves Saturn's move into harmony with your sign on the 17th. This brings subtle but palpable strength to your attitude towards life, as well as a better ability to meet your responsibilities. Fortunately, this transit will stick with you until virtually the end of 2017. This transit, combined with Jupiter in your work sector for the coming year, points to a strong focus on work. Your public image can increase tremendously starting in October, and the work you do now can help improve this opportunity. The Lunar Eclipse in your sign on the 27th brings big epiphanies and may be a cosmic push to change gears in a relationship or about relationship needs.
