HOROSCOPES: Hey Virgo and Libra, September could be your time to shine

Georgia Nicols presents her take on the month for all 12 astrological signs

Georgia Nicols offers her take on what the stars say for you for the month of September.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This month your focus is on how to best function in the world, especially your job. Are you doing your job well? Do you work efficiently? Do you worry about wasting too much time? We each have 24 hours in a day – rich or poor – so how we use that 24 hours is virtually how we are creating our life. After all time is the stuff life is made of. So you never have any “more time.” You never really “waste your time.” It comes down to how you choose to use your time. This is the perfect time of year to work hard and get stuff done.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Because you are tactile and sensuous you explore activities that please the senses – taste, touch, visual and auditory. This month a handful of planets urge you to please yourself. What do you do for amusement and recreation? How do you express your creative talents? How do you explore romance and passionate relationships? What’s a fun vacation? Do you appreciate the children in your life? These are your questions. (There will be a midterm next Thursday.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This month is all about your intimate personal life, family and parents. Naturally, you will relate to your external world, but your main focus will be on home and family relationships. Something might make you better appreciate your home and your family? You might also see the value of warm bonds with family members. You realize how important it is to have your own personal refuge. Memories of your childhood bubble up in your mind. (“Mom liked me best.”)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This month you’re more aware of how you communicate. You might see how people don’t hear you. You might also see how you miss hearing others. (Studies show that in the best communications about 40% is getting back and forth.) The pace of your days will accelerate as you focus on a stronger need to communicate and get out in the world. Short trips, conversations with others plus reading and studying will fill your days. Use this time to tell someone how you feel about something. Will they hear you?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

A gaggle of planets is clustered in your Money House this month making you reflect upon your values. Examine your relationship to your belongings. “Do I need this?” You might want to show off what you own. You will look at your physical world and take stock. In doing so, you might wonder what really matters in life? (Time matters. You’re born then you die and in between — that span of time is your life.) Meanwhile, you will work hard to earn money spend big! Venus will help you buy beautiful things for yourself and others. (You’re a generous person.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Once a year, the Sun is in your sign for four weeks, often accompanied by Mercury. But this year, Venus and Mars join the party! Venus increases your desire to relate to others; and as an added bonus, it makes you charming and diplomatic. It will also attract people to you – along with the Sun. By contrast, Mars makes you a fighter for your own rights and makes you eager to work hard. This is your chance to show the world what you can do! But nothing is as powerful as the Sun, which allows you to project yourself with forcefulness “More porridge?”

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This month a handful of planets are hiding in your chart. The hidden Sun indicates your year is ending and now is the time to plan for your new year ahead. Venus when hiding can mean secret love affairs and a tendency to self-denial, especially in love relationships. (Don’t be a martyr.) Venus encourages charity work. Meanwhile, Mars doesn’t like to hide. Grrrr. Mars is brash, bold energy and this is why you might feel vaguely irritable and uneasy for the next few weeks. Like you’re all dressed up with no place to go. (No boxed wine.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This month a handful of planets are in your House of Friendships, which is why you will do your best work cooperating with others and being involved in groups. Knowing this – be friendly! Engage in groups. Join classes or a club. However, make time to scrutinize your friends and the groups to which you belong. Ask yourself, “Are these my people?” Enjoy socializing with others but study the people you associate with because they are reflection of yourself. Scary but true. Expect to hang out with artistic, creative younger people this month.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Once a year, the Sun is at the top of your chart for four weeks making you look stellar! This year four planets are at the top of your chart. The Sun makes you look great to bosses, parents, VIPs and the police. Venus attracts people to you who help you promote your professional life and make things run more smoothly. Venus might also thrust you into giving artistic, creative advice or promotes romance with a boss. Mars arouses your ambition and makes you keen to achieve. It could encourage problems with coworkers. (Relax. You’are so likable!)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You want to expand your experience of life this month through travel, study and learning something new to expand your mind. The Sun and Venus will guarantee that you will travel for pleasure; and Mercury will guarantee that you study and learn something. Mars, however, might make you identify with political, religious and racial beliefs you haven’t even examined. Don’t coerce others into agreeing with you. Ted Turner’s motto was, “Early to bed, early to rise, work like hell and advertise!”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The issues that occur this month are not casual. They’re intense and passionate! Basically, this is because you have a strong desire to experience life on a feeling level – not just intellectual. You feel alive and aware of your own mortality. This is why you might have concerns about finances and financial security. Venus will attract money and favours to you. This month is a great time to ask for a loan or mortgage. Venus also promotes affectionate, physical romance while Mars amps your sex drive! All this passion romance, sex and money – such a bore.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This month a gaggle of planets sits opposite you creating a variety of influences, one of which is you will need more sleep. Another influence is you will have more objectivity in viewing your relationships, which means you can better understand them. (This applies to professional partnerships as well as marriage.) Venus will pave the way in all these relationships and make things warmer and friendlier. Mars however, will make you easily annoyed with people. It can stir up tension in relationships. Because of Mars, you need to be patient. Start shopping for autumn boots.
