Horoscope for the week beginning Sept. 2

Michael OConnorBy Michael O’Connor
Tip of the Week
This New Moon on September 1 is a Solar Eclipse. Its position is 9 Virgo 31 in the Tropical Zodiac. If you have planets, angles and/or sensitive point anywhere between six and 12 degrees of any sign, but especially of the Mutable Signs: Virgo, Pisces, Gemini and Sagittarius get ready for an activation impulse that will push you into new directions or to undertake new efforts especially in regard to your lifestyle in general, your health and your work.
Mercury is retrograde in this chart and the three-week cycle began on August 31. Fortunately, it is retrograde in Virgo which is one of its better placements, even when retrograde. Still, it helps to be aware of the potentiality of miscommunication and other confusions that often occur when Mercury is retrograde. On the high side, it will lead to an increased ability to concentrate and actually be more productive than usual. Mars meanwhile is ‘out of bounds’ in Sagittarius still in close alignment with Saturn and at the apex point of a T-Square. In English and in light of the chart as a whole, it too stands to have some very positive effects supporting a stronger ability to focus and persevere.
If asked to describe the overall effects of this eclipse in a single word, I would say faith. If permitted a phrase to describe it, I might say humility, acceptance, surrender, and service are cornerstones of genuine power. If asked, what advice might I offer? I would focus to find another way of coining the wise cliché which advocates the exercise of grace under pressure.

September 2-8
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
This Solar Eclipse will serve to activate you to establish a healthier and more productive daily rhythm. Your lifestyle in general and the quality of it or lack thereof will come under the microscope and you will be the one looking. Exercising a constructively critical approach includes creating clear outlines of your goals.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)
If you have been waiting and hoping and praying for an added boost of inspiration to get going with your creative goals, this is it. The key now is self-acknowledgement. In additional to making certain improvements, deciphering how to create more beauty in your environment is featured. Beautiful surroundings will support beautiful expressions.
HorogeminiGemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
Turning your attention to your home front will become extra evident this week and this trend will continue for a while. Making efforts to increase a sense of security and confidence is highlighted. Considering that home is where your heart is, literally, as in your bodily health, the main emphasis is on it.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
A busy flow has become the new norm. By now it may be a matter of consistent and deliberate follow-through on a steady and continual demand on your energies. A main area of focus is on your perceptions, interpretations, and attitudes in general. Your overall philosophy is increasing about where and how can I give more next?
Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 23)
Making key investments has been on your mind and the focus will now increase. It is not necessarily all about money; it may be equally about invested energy, time, focus and effort. Getting clear on what you don’t need is also a possibility. Sometimes, often even, less is more. Want less and give more where it really counts.
horovirgoVirgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
The Solar Eclipse in your sign will serve to activate your drive and determination to take important new initiatives. These may well include creative, innovative and inventive actions. You are in a good position now to gain from the wisdom of others as well as tapping your own reserves. Dig deep yet be receptive as well.
Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22)
An urge to go on a journey is being activated now. The twist is that this call to adventure may be inward at least as much as out. Also, it is as much about new knowledge as it is about new experiences. Sometimes this requires mileage, but at other times we can travel far without going anyway. How will you venture?
Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)
New interests and ambitions are being activated by this eclipse. These will, however, come with a price. The cost includes the efforts required to be your own best friend. As well, paying your dues includes reaching out to engage with other key players. Some of these connections may actually be reconnections with old comrades.
HoroSagittariusSagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 21)
This eclipse cycle is destined to have an effect on your career direction and/or social status. Obtaining new tools and skills is featured and may include actually providing them to others as well. Communications should flow smoothly as your social meter and charm factor are both strongly engaged.
Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)
From contemplative thoughts and soul searching rounds, suddenly some blue sky is visible. Moreover, new horizons are visible, or at least glimpses of a breakthrough. Yet, not all the answers will come to you as quickly as you might like. Wisdom says: have faith and let go of control, yet keep your thoughts and prayers on the prize.
Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 19)
A steady process of clearing the way for the new to come in continues. New lifestyle rhythms are highlighted. These will likely include the desire to feel more protected, secure and nurtured. Cultivating a healthier diet by eliminating foods that are not good for you is one example. Identify soul-sucking habits and activities and place them on the block.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Your social network continues to grow and expand and this cycle will continue for a while yet. One of the main challenges to overcome is inauthentic communication. Circumstances may lead you to speak your mind and from the heart for the sake of healing. Yet, focus to be heart centered versus approaching others with your heart wide open.
