Aries (Mar. 21-Apr.19)
The Sun enters your solar 7th house of long-term relationships and important others as Autumn Equinox initiates the season of Falling Leaves. This translates as a powerful time of reflection in the mirror of partnership and commitment. Who and what do you choose to surround yourself with? Go deeper and discover the fire.
Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
A positive, optimistic attitude and the willingness to explore and experience the world at large commences as the seasons shift. Great good fortune comes to those who understand the virtues of healthy boundaries combined with an adventurous spirit. Bring creative talents into form via art and romance. Reap the harvest.
Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Autumn inspires passion, fans the heart-flame and ignites the soul. Leaves turn gold and crimson, mornings are crisp and days are brilliant. You can feel the awesome power of life cursing through your veins. Feel your heart pump as your lungs expand with air. This is spirit – right here, right there, right now. Count your blessings.
Cancer (June 22-July 22)
Several planets in your solar 4th house of home and family kindle hearth fires and set the table for grateful beauty and bounty up close and personal. You may feel both nostalgic and philosophical as you smoke close relationships from both the past and present. Continue to think realistically and focus on clarity. Clean and be clean.
Leo (July 23-Aug.22)
Autumn Equinox heralds the entrance of the Sun into light-as-air Libra and Venus into dark-as-space Scorpio. You may feel yourself pulled toward the sensual and seductive, seeking solitude or a clandestine rendezvous with something or someone you find exciting and attractive. Feel your heart and follow its wisdom. Breathe deep.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22)
The Harvest Moon shimmered rays of illumination in to your heart, soul and spirit. Now it’s time to take those moonbeams and apply the same enlightenment to your everyday 3-dimensional world. Focus on self-sufficiency and self-reliance. Recognize the liberating power of responsibility, accept it and use it as a tool. Start fresh; renew you.
Libra (Sep. 23-Oct.22)
Happy Birthdays begin as the Sun enters your sign and Autumn begins. Celebrate life with long walks, deep inspirations and high aspirations. You are lucky and blessed; seek simple pleasures and nurture the divine within. The poignant beauty and bounty of this season evokes magic and magnificence. Embrace the Mystery.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
Invisible forces frolic in fields and forests, songs ride the wind and intuition rises from some place deep inside. Embrace the power of these changing seasons, feel the music of your heartstrings and soar above the mundane to a world of magic and mystery. Seek out beautiful women, enjoy their laughter and be a good friend.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
Galactic energy uplifts and transports you far beyond the constraints of everyday, finite reality to a land of expanding possibilities and unlimited potential. Think positive but remain practical amidst the mists of illusion and veils of doubt. Surround yourself with healthy, happy friends and companions. Focus on and do the next right thing.
Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
Achievement, recognition and social status are themes this week. Success comes to those who utilize charm, grace and diplomacy in personal and professional relationships. The magnificent season of Indian Summer is a time of spiritual enlightenment and intellectual expansion for the Mountain Goat. Seek and you shall find.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Over half the people on this planet live on less than three dollars a day and do not have access to clean drinking water. As a New Age humanitarian of the millennium, it’s your job to be as informed and enlightened as possible. Get involved, pursue knowledge and take action. Do what you can do to make the world a better place.
Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)
Feel the peace and grace that comes with gratitude as you recognize the many opportunities and blessings you have in your life today. Express your deep appreciation to those who love, nurture and support you. Smile sweetly and laugh heartily. Enjoy the beauty of intimacy and delve into the mystery of communion.
