march 20 - april 19
Many of the issues you’ll face in September are familiar, even though the circumstances that surround them are continuing to evolve still. Beyond more outward appearances, the underlying theme is about distinguishing yourself as an individual with a unique set of talents and abilities, but in a manner that the rest of society is able to appreciate and acknowledge. Perhaps you are trying to prove something, to all those who sadly underestimated your potential or overlooked your achievements in the past. Or maybe it’s about the challenge and not being afraid to try, knowing that you did your utmost and played to win…

april 20 - may 20
The bulk of the action highlights the western side of your horoscope during September. This means that others play a pivotal role and that much of your personal development occurs, through your contact with those around you and the dynamic within your relationships. But you need not fear your personal needs will be left out of the picture, since many of your experiences are positive and reinforcing, even if on occasions hard to timetable. One or two colleagues, friends or closer contacts may not have that much in common with you anymore, but their place is soon filled by new people and a feeling of returning home.

may 21 - june 20
Ever since Neptune entered Pisces over three years ago, you have become increasingly idealistic about how you’d want your life to be and the circumstances you’d envisage to make up this perfect world. The complete picture hasn’t come together in your mind’s eye yet, but every time another factor that doesn’t fit the bill becomes known, you narrow down the options this eventually might comprise. For many there is a professional focus, while the best career options allow scope for your creativity. Remember, if this halcyon situation was so easily achievable, it wouldn’t seem such a worthwhile objective in the first place.

june 21 - july 22
Sometimes you are right to concentrate on other people, while at other junctures you really are better off thinking about yourself. This doesn’t mean being selfish or thoughtless, since all that would do is exacerbate the situation. However, when there are problems and other issues you can’t fix, so that on every occasion your involvement only seems to make the situation worse, the passage of time is your greatest ally and patience the most effective weapon in your armoury. The atmosphere at home and with your family stays soothing and rewarding, so detach from signs of difficulty and hold out for a better day.

july 23 - august 22
August saw some of the best planetary influences in a long while. And guess what? They all happened in your sign, making you the primary recipient of these glad tidings, only this could have seemed rather overwhelming after an eternity confined to the cosmic wilderness. So through no fault of your own, your reactions will most probably have been mixed. On the one hand you are not surprised to be the luckiest person in the zodiac, since wasn’t this always your birthright from the start? On the other you wonder whether you can equal these expectations, when your home life for example needs attention so urgently.

august 23 - september 22
There hasn’t been one outstanding issue occupying your attention recently, but rather a whole range of factors that have apparently been queueing up, to demand your exclusive focus one after the other. Although the usual round of chaos continues to dominate your everyday activities during September, you can sense the dawning of a new trend that sees you happier and more to the forefront. A growing inward perception of reconciliation and forgiveness develops gradually, not only where others are concerned but for your own actions too. There can be no going back with some folk, but most are only human, like you.

september 23 - october 22
This month there is a short-lived emphasis on your sign, but the intense planetary focus on one area of the sky or another, has abated for a while. This suits your traditional sense of moderation to a tee and renders the rigours of earlier on this year a distant memory. Mercury enters your sign for a short stay as September begins, with the Sun taking up the baton for you in the final week before this planet leaves. Jupiter puts you in the company of some surprisingly tolerant individuals, while Venus helps you come to terms with the quandaries and questions that might otherwise have threatened to upset your equilibrium.

october 23 - november 21
You are delighted when Mars your former ruler, leaves your sign on September 13. Its visit of seven weeks wasn’t so prolonged in comparison to how long it sometimes stays, but the red planet brought a lot of feelings to the surface, a few of which you have tackled and the majority you've sat on to create a situation similar to your own personal, pressurised black hole. For the second half of this month Mars passes into an area connected with your finances, meaning no matter how hard you struggle to bring the money in, the period during which it stays with you before flowing out the other hand steadily diminishes.

november 22 - december 21
September heralds some overdue glad tidings, amid the confusion and prevarication that have typified your relationships and home life lately. Firstly, Mars arrives in your constellation and while not everyone would consider this inspiring fare, you are traditionally a fire sign with the energy and initiative to enjoy what eventuates. Plus, during the final week of this month the red planet gets locked into an encouraging and positive configuration with Jupiter and Uranus. Broadly, your light has been hidden under a bushel long enough. Obligations and responsibilities are one thing, negating your latent potential quite another…

In terms of those bodies that travel around the Sun, the elliptic orbit of Pluto will sometimes bring it in closer to the solar sphere than Neptune, but usually it is the most distance object with the lengthiest orbit and slowest journey through the zodiac. Pluto is retrograde around 43% of the time, or 157 days each year and on September 23 it moves forward again after five months in reverse. Its next retrograde cycle starts in seven months and until then, the transformations you have experienced and with which Pluto's presence is associated can resume; doubtless never rapidly, but thoroughly and inexorably nonetheless.

january 20 - february 18
Your career affairs remain a priority until the closing stages of this year. The same goes for other important goals, whether these have a clearly vocational focus or not. Sometimes you wonder whether burnout isn’t just around the corner, while on other occasions you are certain it is probably already here. Still, you are fuelled by idealism and have one or two extremely supportive people near to you, without whose input it is unlikely you’d have made it to this point. Take advantage of any slight lull, during the fortnight following the arrival of Mars in Sagittarius on September 13, to enjoy a change of surroundings.

Where there have been troubled waters in your closest relationship affairs, the arrival of Venus in your opposite sign, does plenty to help smooth these over. This is just as well, since you are increasingly busy and won’t have time to waste, bickering about trivialities. Maybe it is because there is now so much to do, you have more worthwhile concerns to keep you occupied and are less inclined to pick holes in those around you. Ultimately, success across a range of criteria depends more on teamwork and showing a united front, turning major hurdles in to minor concerns and helping your accomplishments to proliferate.
