Overview for this Month: Taurus (All)

September 2015

There are many signs in September that you're truly moving forward and more able to enjoy yourself, dear Taurus. For one, Saturn moves out of its opposition to your sign, and this is not to return for another 28 years! As well, the Sun, Jupiter, and towards the end of the month, Mars, are in your enjoyment and self-expression sector. A Solar Eclipse occurs in this same, favorable part of your chart on the 13th, bringing even more power to areas ruled by this sector, including romance, creativity, hobbies, entertainment, children, and pleasure. If you've been lacking confidence or energy to go after your heart's desire, these astrological events will swoop in and change your attitude altogether. Confidence with sharing and expressing yourself more freely is on the upswing. As well, your ruler, lovely Venus, turns direct after weeks of retrograde motion. Nice! More clarity is with you, and you're no longer giving off mixed signals. Ideally, you've come into better touch with your innermost needs and desires. Committed relationships are improving, particularly after the 25th. More casual connections are in great shape, although occasionally the ride can be a little too exciting for your nerves, or confusing at times such as around the 25th, when fun and intimacy signals clash. There may also be a temporary feeling of letdown mid-month if you feel that friends are not entirely supportive or reliable. You may be finding new ways to express and enjoy yourself that take you away from certain friends, networks, or groups. Alternatively, there could be some loss of motivation for a long-term dream or plan if it no longer seems quite as viable. Some people could be letting you down now. Even so, as you move forward, you have a greater sense that things are falling into place, or more conviction that the changes you're making are for the best. If you've been ignoring your needs for rest and reflection, you could be feeling especially drained and sensitive around the Lunar Eclipse on the 27th.

September 2015 Taurus Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

September 2015

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until September 23rd:

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. You can also be over-sensitive about these matters if you feel you are not getting enough appreciation.

From September 23rd forward:The Sun illuminates your solar sixth house. During this cycle, you take more pride in the work you do and in your health routines than any other time of the year. You are sorting through the experiences of the last several months, separating the worthwhile from the worthless. This is a good time to build your skills, to get organized, and to attend to your health and wellbeing. It's a great time to make improvements to your regular routines. Your self-esteem and your ego are tied up in the work you do and in the services you give. Details are more important to you now. It's time to bring order to your life by focusing on the little things that make up the whole. This cycle presents an opportunity to get rid of what doesn't work in your life, while also discovering what does. You could seek distinction and strive towards perfection in your work. Efficiency should be your goal now. Your physical health, as well as the relationship between your body and your mind, are in focus.

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 fifth house, suggesting a new approach to love, children, or creative projects. A new set-up in existing love affairs or a new love affair altogether may be formed in the coming months, as well as a sense of renewal and reinvigoration with regards to your ability to express yourself spontaneously and creatively. This is a phase when you have an increased awareness of your need for fun and leisure activities.

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.

This Lunar Eclipse stimulates your solar twelfth house. Surprises surrounding the compassionate care and attention you give others, as well as the work and service you render, 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 sectors of self-undoing, privacy, and dreams is involved. This could manifest, for example, as a situation that tests your faith and compassion, a culmination or fruition of a service you render, an event that calls on your urge for privacy and reflection, and other such possibilities. Finding a balance between practical concerns and spiritual or non-material matters 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 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.

With Venus as your ruler, you are especially sensitive to all of the Venus Retrograde issues described above. Venus also rules your work and health sector, and the desire for satisfaction and warm relations on the job is likely strong now, but hard to get. This is an excellent period for reworking your finances. Take your time when it comes to major decision making.

From September 7th forward:

Venus continues to transit your solar fourth house now. Domestic relationships and the home environment tend to be especially harmonious and peaceful during this cycle. You may have a desire to decorate your home with better quality items or more attention to aesthetics. An inner sense of peace and security tends to dominate now, or the desire for peace motivates you now. Your affections are strong but you don't wear your heart on your sleeve just now, preferring quiet moments with loved ones.

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 with lovers or children, and regarding financial affairs, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. Your judgment with regards to personal finances (Gemini-ruled for you) as well as romantic partners and creative endeavors may not be up to par just now, so do avoid "signing on the dotted line". Speculation is not advised during this cycle.

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 24th:

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 24th 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:

There are many signs in September that you're truly moving forward and more able to enjoy yourself, dear Taurus. For one, Saturn moves out of its opposition to your sign, and this is not to return for another 28 years! As well, the Sun, Jupiter, and towards the end of the month, Mars, are in your enjoyment and self-expression sector.

September 2015 Taurus Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

September 2015

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

All month: The Sun illuminates your solar fifth house now. After a period of "nesting", you are coming out of your shell, ready to perform and to express yourself creatively. This is a very playful period of the year, when you are inspired creatively and emotionally. After a period of self-protectiveness, you are now more spontaneous and more willing to take risks. You take more pride than usual in your creations, your love affairs, your children, and your hobbies. Pleasure and amusement play an important role in your search for freedom of self-expression now. Show off your best colors! You want others to take notice, and you are more sensitive to whether people appreciate you. More than any time of the year, this is the cycle in which you focus on having fun, enjoying romance, and expressing yourself creatively. Your hobbies, leisure time, moments spent with children, gaming time, and so forth, all come into focus at this time of year. This is a cycle in which you find joy in expressing who you are--when your "inner child" comes out to play. This is a time when you are more flirtatious than usual, and when you might take a few risks in life--not only gambling with games but with life itself. You might be a bit of a showman at this time. You are likely feeling good in general, and you tend to spread the joy.

Something that has been "in hiding" or brewing under the surface of things comes to light, or there is a significant fruition or culmination. This could manifest, for example, as a situation that tests a friendship, a culmination or fruition of a casual relationship, you could be called upon to perform a humanitarian gesture, a friend may experience a little crisis and ask for your help, you could suddenly find yourself around many people, perhaps after a period of relative solitude or private time, and other such possibilities.

Your affections are strong but you don't wear your heart on your sleeve just now, preferring quiet moments with loved ones.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

From September 6th forward:

Mercury transits your solar sixth house. This is a good placement for Mercury, as it is the natural ruler of the sixth house. It's an excellent period for sorting out the details of your daily existence. You are inclined to make to-do lists, pay bills and sort out clutter, and to do detail work on the job. Health matters are most certainly on your brain as well, and you could be thinking of scheduling check-ups or busy researching ways to improve your health. You may also show a keener interest in improving your basic skills. Your approach to work during this cycle is pleasant, happy, and logical for the most part, unless you allow worry or scattered energy to enter the picture. You are inclined to want to learn new work skills, or to improve your skills and output in terms of work. There is likely to be more activity, movement, contact, and communications with co-workers now. You tend to take more interest in organizing your working environment--and this is an excellent time to do so, as you are especially objective and intelligent when it comes to getting a handle on your daily affairs and all of the "little things" that contribute to a feeling of efficiency and competency. Menial tasks become more prominent. Watch, however, for tension or idle chit-chat interfering with your work output during this cycle.

Mercury is retrograde from September 17 to October 9:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with lovers or children, and regarding financial affairs, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. Your judgment with regards to personal finances (Gemini-ruled for you) as well as romantic partners and creative endeavors may not be up to par just now, so do avoid "signing on the dotted line". Speculation is not advised during this cycle.

Occurring in your solar fifth and sixth houses this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to romance, children, creativity, work, and daily routines. Be as non- judgmental as you can with co-workers, romantic partners, and your children. Re- thinking the suitability of your job and/or romantic relationships is possible now, but you should avoid jumping to any premature decisions. Work-related mess-ups can frustrate you. Double-check your work. There may be the need to revisit old issues with your children or lover, or there could be some communication problems with the same. Arguments with a lover may be blown out of proportion far too easily. Both you and your lover should avoid harping on the words used and try to get to the meaning behind the words instead. Or, a romance may not be moving forward in obvious ways. It might seem like stagnation, but it's actually a period of review and rest. Other possibilities include calls that are not returned, a lover is late for a date, or dates get cancelled. Speculation and gambling are not advised right now. Things will change once Mercury turns direct, so you might decide to try to keep status quo for the time being. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with co-workers, professors, lawyers, romantic partners, and children, or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

This month:

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.

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until September 13th:

The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar fourth house. This is a period of recharge, of getting in touch with your innermost feelings, of connecting with your roots, and of spending more time and energy on home and family. Home and family matters capture your attention and are a strong source of pride now. It's a time when worldly matters are not as important to you. Use this energy to find ways to improve your family relations and your home environment. During this heart-warming cycle, you would do best to allow yourself to explore your inner needs so that you can nurture yourself and others in a healthy, growth-oriented manner, in preparation for more outgoing times to come.

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.

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 in your third house of communication, siblings, and neighbors. You may withdraw from chit-chatting during this period, and this might alienate a few people, especially siblings and perhaps neighbors. Conversely, you might find it hard to derive satisfaction from these people, or from learning situations in general. Communications may seem insincere. In fact, you may have a hard time getting your ideas across in a warm, genuine manner. You may be misreading body language as well. For some, conversations about love or about past relationships can figure strongly.

With Venus as your ruler, you are especially sensitive to all of the Venus Retrograde issues described above. Venus also rules your work and health sector, and the desire for satisfaction and warm relations on the job is likely strong now, but hard to get. This is an excellent period for reworking your finances. Take your time when it comes to major decision making.

From September 24th forward:

Venus warms your solar fourth house now. During this cycle, you are especially fond of the life of the home and family. You are more receptive and gentle on a romantic level, and tend to be sentimental or nostalgic now. You may particularly value the aesthetics in and around your home during this period. If things are out of whack on the home front, you will do whatever you can to create a peaceful and stable atmosphere. Loyalty and sensitivity in your relationships are more important to you than typically. You might focus on ways to earn money in or from your home. This is a calming influence--a time when simple pleasures most appeal.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

This month:

Mercury continues to transit your solar fifth house. Increased communication with children, romantic partners, and people who share the same hobbies as you can occur now. Certainly, you are thinking about these people and about love and romance, child rearing, and/or creative pursuits more than usual. Mental exercises and competitions can be particularly enjoyable now. You express yourself with warmth and creativity, and you have an appreciative "audience" for your ideas now.

Mercury is retrograde from September 17 to October 9:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with lovers or children, and regarding financial affairs, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. Your judgment with regards to personal finances (Gemini-ruled for you) as well as romantic partners and creative endeavors may not be up to par just now, so do avoid "signing on the dotted line". Speculation is not advised during this cycle.

Occurring in your solar fifth house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to matters surrounding romance, children, and creativity. Be as non-judgmental as you can with romantic partners and your children, if applicable. Re-thinking the suitability of your romantic relationships is possible now, but you should avoid jumping to any premature decisions. There may be the need to revisit old issues with your children or lover, or there could be some communication problems with the same. Arguments with a lover may be blown out of proportion far too easily. Both you and your lover should avoid harping on the words used and try to get to the meaning behind the words instead. Or, a romance may not be moving forward in obvious ways. It might seem like stagnation, but it's actually a period of review and rest. Other possibilities include calls that are not returned, a lover is late for a date, or dates get cancelled. Speculation and gambling are not advised right now. It's probably not the best time to launch a new creative project, but it's a good time for reworking an existing one. Same goes for romance! Things will change after Mercury turns direct, so you might decide to try to keep status quo for the time being. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with romantic partners, and children; 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 and energize your solar third house now. You may be especially busy running errands and tending to daily activities during this cycle. It's a strong time for putting your energy into intellectual projects or studies. You tend to communicate in a more direct manner now, and you might want to be careful that you don't come across as insensitive or abrasive. You may find it too easy to become impatient with others if they seem to be taking up too much of your time, such as with other drivers or with people who are not speaking as directly as you are. Channel your extra energy into mental tasks so that this transit can be highly stimulating (instead of stressful).

From September 9th forward:

Mars activates and energizes your solar fourth house. You have more energy at your disposal for domestic projects or activities. Because your actions are governed by your instincts during this period, you may be especially defensive and protective. You may work hard at making yourself feel more secure, and you may be called upon to take charge on the home and family front. You may have more energy to invest in homemaking, house repairs, re-decorating, or family activities. In fact, if you are feeling very restless, moody, or defensive during this period, it would be a good idea to do any of these things! You may have an increased desire to rule the roost, and if this transit stimulates conflict or disputes, it is likely to be family-related--you may have arguments with them, about them, or on their behalf. You may also encounter opposition from career-related matters or people. You may get worked up about old angers or regarding emotional issues from the past that are resurfacing now.

Overview Horoscope:

There are many signs in September that you're truly moving forward and more able to enjoy yourself, dear Taurus. For one, Saturn moves out of its opposition to your sign, and this is not to return for another 28 years! As well, the Sun, Jupiter, and towards the end of the month, Mars, are in your enjoyment and self-expression sector. A Solar Eclipse occurs in this same, favorable part of your chart on the 13th, bringing even more power to areas ruled by this sector, including romance, creativity, hobbies, entertainment, children, and pleasure. If you've been lacking confidence or energy to go after your heart's desire, these astrological events will swoop in and change your attitude altogether. Confidence with sharing and expressing yourself more freely is on the upswing. As well, your ruler, lovely Venus, turns direct after weeks of retrograde motion. Nice! More clarity is with you, and you're no longer giving off mixed signals. Ideally, you've come into better touch with your innermost needs and desires. Committed relationships are improving, particularly after the 25th. More casual connections are in great shape, although occasionally the ride can be a little too exciting for your nerves, or confusing at times such as around the 25th, when fun and intimacy signals clash. There may also be a temporary feeling of letdown mid-month if you feel that friends are not entirely supportive or reliable. You may be finding new ways to express and enjoy yourself that take you away from certain friends, networks, or groups. Alternatively, there could be some loss of motivation for a long-term dream or plan if it no longer seems quite as viable. Some people could be letting you down now. Even so, as you move forward, you have a greater sense that things are falling into place, or more conviction that the changes you're making are for the best. If you've been ignoring your needs for rest and reflection, you could be feeling especially drained and sensitive around the Lunar Eclipse on the 27th.
