Aries Mar 20 - Apr 20
Astrologically speaking as the eclipse
season gets underway and Jupiter
changes sign, we are in one of the most
significant periods of the year. This September
there is a North Node solar eclipse in Virgo on
01 September, a South Node lunar eclipse in Pisces
on 16 September and Jupiter, the great benefic enters
Libra on 09 September. The solar eclipse in Virgo on 01
September falls in the area of your solar chart associated with
your day-to-day habits, tasks and chores. Since the North Node points the way forward and the North Node is in Virgo, this indicates that there are no shortcuts to getting where you want to go so get busy, active and productive.
With Saturn and Mars, your planetary ruler, in harmony with Aries, your Sun sign, from Sagittarius, this can be a tremendously productive combination which allows you to combine drive and initiative with a safe pair of hands.
Because it’s important to work smarter, not harder, be open to developing a more efficient and effective daily routine, concentrate on energy management, not simply time management. If a work opportunity falls in your lap that seems more of a side-ways than an upwards move, don’t dismiss it too quickly. Eclipse activity indicates you should seriously consider whatever comes your way this month, big or small. A smaller opportunity may be worth taking since it may turn out to be more significant than expected.
The lunar eclipse falling in Pisces around 16 September suggests this would be a good time to let go of some of those bad habits or aspects of yourself and your life that are preventing you from fulfilling your talents and doing your thing. This may involve letting go of outdated patterns of behavior and beliefs that have served there purpose but may now be limiting your attempts to make further progress in your life.
Jupiter's move into Libra, the zone of your solar chart associated with relationships of all kinds, personal, emotional, professional and your dealings with others in general, should be good news and herald increased activity and good fortune in this area of your life over the next twelve months. Jupiter takes twelve years to circle the zodiac, spending about one year in each Sun sign. From 09 September Jupiter enters your opposite sign of Libra where it will stay until it enters Scorpio in October 2017. Increased emphasis on Libra is also indicated with the Sun beginning its month-long transit through Libra from 22 September just as Venus, planet of pleasure and romance leaves Libra for intense Scorpio.
At such times you would be wise to be open to offers and make the most of opportunities to mingle and meet new people. Because there will be times when it is not what you know but who you know that makes the difference, be prepared to compromise, play ball and even dance to another’s tune, if that what it takes to win the prize.
