A new month — and Fall is just around the corner. It’s getting chilly at night and the days are getting noticeably shorter. Pretty soon, some people will be counting down to Christmas…
Because the season is changing and it is a new month, I thought I would do something just for fun — look up my horoscope for September! I’m really not a believer in astrology as a blueprint for life, but every now and then I like to check out what the stargazers have to predict about my future.
The following is an excerpt from AstroStyle — Horoscopes From the AstroTwins, for my horoscope for September. I’m a Gemini and this is what AstroTwins had to say:
The tides are turning in a big way, Gemini. September is a pivotal month for every sign, but you’ll feel the energy shift intently. The horoscope headlines include TWO eclipses and lucky Jupiter making an annual sign change, from Virgo, your cozy fourth house, to Libra, your fifth house of fame and passion. Your ruling planet Mercury is retrograde until September 22. There are also two page-turning new moons this month that will shake up the status quo. With all this cosmic action you’re hardly going to be passing the time watching your gel manicure dry.
But amidst all the mayhem, the month kicks off at a slower pace with the Sun in Virgo, your domestic fourth house, until September 22. While the back-to-school bustle may be in full swing, you’re craving quality time at Chez Gemini over home-cooked marinara sauce made with end of season tomatoes and cozy nights in with friends. Communicator Mercury is retrograde (backward) in this homey zone of your chart from August 30-September 22, which could put your focus on personal matters even more. Mercury retrograde can wreak havoc on technology, interpersonal matters and travel. Tension could flare with a roommate, female friend or relative. If you’re moving or selling/buying a home, things could get confusing. Your own moods could be subject to change without notice—and not just because you’re a Gemini! But keep in mind these hitches are often blessings in disguise; they help us press pause and take time to reflect and reassess.
Don’t sink too far into that velvet loveseat, Gemini. The change-making eclipses this month will keep you on your toes. Eclipses arrive four to six times a year to shake up business as usual and force us to make decisions. For a sign like yours that loves to endlessly deliberate over options, the eclipses push you to commit. September’s eclipses fall on the Virgo/Pisces axis, affecting your domstic fourth house and your career-driven tenth house. Work-life balance is the theme, and yours is getting reshuffled. These are part of the same eclipse series that began in March 2015 and will run until February 2017. These eclipses reshuffle how you achieve your goals, how you relate to friends and relatives, and how you balance head and heart.
