/>PISCES: powerful new group associations gain momentum
The above mentioned chance to still get onboard with your new assignments is helped along by the ongoing Saturn-Uranus opposition, exact again on September 15th. We have all been dealing with the energy of constriction/expansion, outworn ideas vs. unstable visionary ones and will continue to do so throughout 2010.
One part of your life is trying to clamp down in opposition to the changing dynamics in another area of life. In all actuality, the themes are linked and if you can avoid swinging too far to either side, you will manage the changes with grace. If you are holding on too tightly to anything, Uranus will crack the foundations open. Likewise, if you are rebelling in an unfocused manner, Saturn will provide the necessary brakes to move you back in equilibrium. We will no doubt hear of more corrections to our financial markets and political infighting will escalate.
In your own life, you will experience the see-saw effects in this way:
ARIES - new spiritual insights will require a more clean disciplined way of life
TAURUS - exciting friendships may clash with a honey that wants to keep things the same
GEMINI - unexpected work opportunities/difficulties may put a strain on your home life
CANCER - allow new philosophies to upset entrenched thought patterns or outdated relationship scenarios
LEO - money from a salaried position may be hard to come by, the financial opportunities come from group endeavors
VIRGO - despite the feeling that you are old and decrepit, your partner is adding an element of excitement and unpredictability to your life
LIBRA - the best way out of the current depression is to experiment with new healing modalities
SCORPIO - while old friends have been dropping like flies, your lover is providing you with the inspiration to start anew
SAGITTARIUS - you are finally receiving your due career-wise, while the changes at home could sideswipe you
CAPRICORN - friends and siblings may provide some fresh perspective on old spiritual hangups
AQUARIUS - develop a new money making skill instead of relying on the old profesional connections
PISCES - it's make it or break it time when it comes to relationships; time to commit or end it
And lastly, we have another infamous Mercury retrograde period from September 7th through September 29th. While personally I do not see this as a major transit compared to Pluto, Uranus, or Saturn, Mercury still does have an effect on our everyday lives. This particular cycle has a little more heft because once again, it sets off the World Axis at 0 Libra.
Issues of how we communicate in relationship will abound and presage the upcoming Saturn into Libra cycle come October. Society as a whole will be focussed on relationships and we will all be fixating on this topic for the next couple of years. Many people will make a committment during this time, or, if living a lie or dead situation, will end long-standing unions. Nothing will be half measure.
Mercury retro in Libra will begin to introduce this topic in the public and personal sphere.
Depending on our sign, the discussions will center around this particular topic:
ARIES - your relationship status, are you in or out?
TAURUS - how well do you take care of yourself?
GEMINI - do you have something to say creatively?
CANCER - who is your real family?
LEO - how do I connect with others on a one to one basis?
VIRGO - what am I worth?
LIBRA - how do I express my true nature?
SCORPIO - what am I afraid of?
SAGITTARIUS - who are my real friends?
CAPRICORN - how does the public perceive me?
AQUARIUS - what do I believe in?
PISCES - how do I connect emotionally and sexually?
As I've been touting in recent months, September is a biggie when it comes to changing your life's direction. Obviously, from the soul's perspective its time to walk away from your past and move into creating a new life. These opportunities do NOT happen everyday (from the astrology perspective) so when the energy is in motion, go with the flow. We all elected to incarnate at this time in history to experience a new world perspective. Even if it feels uncomfortable, surrender is the name of the game. Your higher self will be cheering and supporting you in the process. Take heart and walk bravely into your new life!
