September 2016 Tarot Forecast
September brings yet another long dreary Mercury Retrograde which began on the 30 August and ends on the 22 September which incidentally happens to be the Autumn Equinox as well. I hope you enjoyed the light and happy August that just passed. As you can expect some emotionally testing times this month. As we celebrate the birthday of Virgo, the qualities of Virgo will be felt throughout the month in the form of events taking place in a very orderly fashion. Instinctively, we will just know what the next course of action should be. It’s tough luck with family during the first week. Unfortunately, we cannot choose them. There will be moments when you just can’t be bothered to please anymore and choose to go your own way. A breather in the form of a holiday or just moving out might help ease the situation. As things threaten to fall apart in the workplace during the second week, you feel the need to be the glue that holds everything together or just simply stand back and observe and be the peacemaker. It’s best not to judge at this time as tempers could flare. In order to feel balanced, it will be ideal to get creative come third week of the month. Energies may feel chaotic and things feel stuck so move away from technology and use your hands for a change. Finally, when the month comes to close and we see the back of Mercury Retrograde things pick up speed with a spring your step all feels wonderful and optimistic again. There is hope to reconcile and heal. Be easy on yourselves! It’s another Mercury Retrograde messing up our lives again!
IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You may discover a new passion or have to make a choice between two things that you love this month. It can be a confusing September if you are not balanced. However, since we are in the month of Virgo who are known for their organized minds and lives. You kick into action your calm demeanour in analysing the situation. Using your instincts and positivity you are able to look past your restlessness and make the best of the situation. You bring harmony to your circumstances and – voila – by the end of month you are crystal clear about where you want to be.
Year Ahead (September 2016 – August 2017)
I would say the year ahead is about dealing with your emotional self rather than your personal ambitions. This will prove to be just as important as you will feel liberated to make decisions in other areas of your life. A lot of thinking seems to be going on in the first quarter. I suppose there is a lot of reminiscing about the past and trying to pick and choose what you would like to see make an appearance in your life again. Some of it would have to do with old flames or even childhood experiences. However, there is much to learn from past experiences and you seem to make the most of this time to do this. After much thinking, it’s time to get down to action during the second quarter. To make improvements in all areas of your life you try to work out solutions to all the ‘problems’ that you have faced. The goal is basically to make life an easier journey for you. There is hope and healing through this process with strong optimism you believe help is there when you need it. Once you got fine tuning your goals and ambitions out of the way, the issue of past emotional pettiness surfaces in the third quarter. There is a re-awakening of your emotional self when you realise harping and holding on to past grievances won’t work anymore. Even if it’s not something you seek it will seek you out. Your grievances will make an appearance regardless of whether you want them to be dealt with or not as it’s just time to let go and bury the past. This is followed by a time of healing and release. If you feel like winding down and catching up on much needed rest and relaxation is what you want to do then do exactly what the body needs – please don’t deny it of this. The key is to appreciate what is before you and to work within your means. If you cannot perfect the art of appreciating what you have then how will you appreciate more? So practice on what is before you.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
No grass is greener trust me. It’s what you make out of your situation. The advice is to take everything in life in moderation. Discontent will beset upon you when you set yourself too high expectations. Plod on don’t give up. You are most likely near the end. Small but sure steps will win the day. Don’t let the Mercury Retrograde irk you. It’s part and parcel of your learning journey. If the going gets tough take time out and rest. There will be times this month when your body may feel very weary so do listen to it.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
It’s an emotionally transforming month for Taurus. You will grow when trying to make sense of the chaos around you. You apply a different and definitely more mature perspective to relationships be it familial, friendship or professional. You try to understand why someone would react in a certain way. Your instincts are very much sharpened as they have a large part to play in this transformation. A positive thing to note for the month of September is your improved luck. So if there is something that you would like to make happen, i would say go for it!
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
Balance is your key for the month of September. There seems to be two equally attractive options that will surface. Being a Mercury Retrograde month, if the decision could be delayed to after it ends – then it would be ideal. This would give you plenty of time to digest and make sense of the information before you. Important to note as well during this time is to read and read over any fine print. Communication is crucial so be clear as possible to others and when in doubt ask and ask again till you are crystal clear. Don’t forget to weigh your strengths and weaknesses when it comes to making this decision. Good Luck!
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
It’s an interesting month ahead for Cancer. A discovery is made or i would like to say a hard truth to swallow about someone or a something. What you believed to be true all along has turned out to be false. It is a shock but you quickly calm down and mollycoddle yourself into believing that hope still exists. The best way to manoeuvre through the month would be with your instincts. You will never go wrong this way. There is a good chance of meeting a ‘soulmate’ this September which could end up being a life partner if you are single or someone who simply just understands and connects with you.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You seem to have understood the dont’s of a Mercury Retrograde very well and put them into practice this month. Keeping still is your game plan although decisions need to be made. You do realise you will need to cut your losses at some point and focus on one thing be it concerning your job, business, finances or responsibilities but you feel the need to sit and mull over things. Action will be taken when you see fit. But as for now you can buy time so make the most of September to ensure you put yourself on the right path.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
It’s time to get out of your thoughts and into your present to make things happen. Be honest and true to yourself as to what you really desire. There should be no shame or guilt in this. It’s the perfect time this month to go grab opportunities or just get things started for yourself. Gather up that courage and strength to manifest your desires. Put your mind and determination to it and you will be amazed at how you can turn things around for yourself.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
It’s a test of your inner strength this September. You may find that the same people that supported you have now turned against you. Whatever it may be, you will need to stand your ground as these people aren’t going to expect you to do so. Stick to your cause and do not budge. Let your inner light and belief shine and you will be surprised at how they will retreat. There will never be a problem without its solution so you will be pleased to know that you will be granted two equally good paths to tackle the issue at hand. It’s a process you must go i am afraid as there is a lesson to be learned!
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Lot’s of fine tuning is what you will be doing this month. You may find competition to be stiff when it comes to winning that contest, getting that grade, promotion or even a new client for your business. Opportunities are granted to you to make those necessary improvements in the form of help from a more experienced source. Accept all the assistance you can get if you do want to make it through the month with success. However, do expect things to get sluggish at times as we are after all in the month of a Mercury Retrograde.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
It is a perfect month to be starting a second source of income. If you have felt like you always wanted to get that blog started or sell those knitted scarves online then waste no time. You will find there seems to be no end to the flow of creative juices so milk it while it lasts. You just never know where this venture might lead you. It could be that there won’t be a need for the day job anymore or it just end up being a nice pension for you and the loved ones.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Aquarius is most likely going to be the star sign that will feel the effects of the Mercury Retrograde the most unfortunately. But not all is doom and gloom. On the contrary, it might be viewed as a time to slow down and analyse rather than charging without strategising. However, this does not sit well with Aquarius hence the feeling of restlessness arises. You will probably realise what a waste of energy it was to brew in unwanted emotions as the Mercury Retrograde passes. But on the whole, luck and change surrounds you this September so use this to your advantage.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
A decision is on hand to be made. But you really aren’t in the mood to make it. And it just doesn’t feel like you can see the lure of either option. So you’d rather sit on things and wait it out. Under normal circumstances, it would not be the right thing to procrastinate like that but since it is a Mercury Retrograde i would not blame you for taking this stance. The old and familiar feels comforting and you’d rather bask in it while you can. But be warned not for long though as once the Mercury Retrograde passes things will be staring at you right in the face again. So use this time to weigh things out for yourself.
