Septem­ber in the stars

Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 23 Al­though you’re not crav­ing recog­ni­tion you might re­sent oth­ers be­ing rewarded for out­comes that are down to your ini­tia­tive. This is all part of a brief but un­com­fort­able phase of feel­ing over­looked and will soon pass. Aim to be per­ceived as ex­tremely gen­er­ous and adult for not hav­ing made a fuss. Mantra of the month Suc­cess and rest can­not sleep to­gether.


Oc­to­ber 24 – Novem­ber 22 Ini­tially you might feel like you’ve been stuck in one place for too long. But a Sun-Jupiter con­nec­tion on Septem­ber 7 will high­light an op­por­tu­nity for you to ex­per­i­ment and ex­plore. Your chal­lenge will be to re­sist over­spend­ing or dis­rupt­ing ev­ery­body else’s plans as you be­come more and more ad­ven­tur­ous. Mantra of the month Mal­ice has no ex­cuse and deserves no par­don.




Novem­ber 23 – De­cem­ber 21 As much as you would pre­fer to agree on ev­ery de­tail, you’re about to clash with some­one over a joint ven­ture. Money is a main pri­or­ity but if you look care­fully you’ll find other fac­tors on which you’ve a lot of wrig­gle room. Show how rea­son­able you can be and see how the whole sit­u­a­tion changes. Mantra of the month If you of­fend, ask for a par­don; if you’re of­fended, for­give.


De­cem­ber 22 – Jan­uary 20 In­flu­en­tial peo­ple will ex­pect a lot of you. Don’t panic if de­vel­op­ments in your pri­vate life are also chal­leng­ing. Mid-Septem­ber, a Mer­cury-Pluto clash will force you to re-think your sit­u­a­tion and your pri­or­i­ties. If that means miss­ing out in one area to make huge gains in an­other, it will prove worth­while. Mantra of the month Don’t look for faults in some­thing you don’t un­der­stand. Jan­uary 21 – Fe­bru­ary 19 Refuse to be over­bur­dened with ex­tra work or du­ties. You can some­times be too com­pli­ant be­cause you like to be per­ceived as friendly. But once you feel you’re be­ing taken for a fool, re­sent­ment kicks in. Adopt a voice and man­ner that prove you can be strong but at the same time po­lite and re­spect­ful. Mantra of the month Calm wa­ters do not mean that there are no croc­o­diles. Fe­bru­ary 20 – March 20 Those re­ject­ing the in­ven­tive­ness you want to bring to se­ri­ous ven­tures might seem un­rea­son­able. But they have good rea­son to urge you to adopt more or­tho­dox mea­sures and you’d be wise to hear them out. Let them see how highly you value col­lab­o­ra­tion and an ex­change of views and you’ll all ben­e­fit in the end. Mantra of the month Bet­ter one day as a lion than a hun­dred as a sheep.


March 21 – April 20 Striv­ing ahead of oth­ers might make you un­pop­u­lar at first. Still, you have to let them see that you must seize a heaven-sent op­por­tu­nity to do well and that you’ll re­sent any­one stand­ing in your way. You’ve been a ca­su­alty of emo­tional black­mail in the past and it’s an ex­pe­ri­ence that mustn’t be re­peated. Mantra of the month Wood al­ready touched by fire is easy to set alight.


April 21 – May 21 Be­fore you rush to help those who say they’re strug­gling, ask your­self whether they should be left to their own de­vices. You’ve bur­dened your­self in the past by be­ing help­ful and you might have dis­ad­van­taged those in­volved in some way. Tough love may be hard to ad­min­is­ter, but it can be ex­tremely ef­fec­tive. Mantra of the month Take a risk. If you win you’ll be happy; if you lose you’ll be wise.


May 22 – June 21 Oth­ers might won­der why you’re so con­fi­dent about fi­nan­cial or fam­ily de­vel­op­ments. A Sun-Pluto link will kick off Septem­ber in the most dy­namic way and you’ll refuse to let any­one else’s doubts hold you back. Avoid a ten­dency to push peo­ple out of the way when you feel you’re on a win­ning streak. Mantra of the month Big plans can be ru­ined by a lit­tle im­pa­tience.


June 22 – July 23 Keep facts and fig­ures to your­self even when loved ones and close friends are hop­ing you’ll re­veal all. You’re about to be trusted with in­for­ma­tion which, in the wrong hands, could be­come highly con­tro­ver­sial. You mustn’t feel guilty if your dis­cre­tion is met with ac­cu­sa­tions of dis­loy­alty or high-hand­ed­ness. Mantra of the month Be­tween say­ing and do­ing, many shoes are worn out.


July 24 – Au­gust 23 By con­fronting ad­min or ar­eas you’ve ne­glected you can achieve peace of mind. Saturn is chal­leng­ing Mars on Septem­ber 9, which sug­gests you can no longer bury your head in the sand. One par­tic­u­lar pro­ject will turn out to be far less oner­ous and a great deal more re­ward­ing than you first ex­pected. Mantra of the month Build with what you have, not with what you would wish for.
