Libra The Scales (Sept. 22-Oct. 22):
See the lead paragraph. On roughly two weeks before and after Sept. 22 there is likely a crisis of decision in front of you. The subject matter is about property and family matters. It is an old issue, returning for review. At depth the most important factor is who you really are now and where you belong.
For All Signs: We are within a long series of highly critical equinoxes and solstices. On Sept. 22 at 5:19 PM EDT we will experience the Fall equinox. The news two weeks on either side of this point is likely to be dramatic and striking. Fresh news about the challenges to the economy and the banking industry is likely. Other signs suggest attacks and dirty tricks, along with broken promises in world news. These aspects also act in our personal lives. Those who feel compelled to take action against other person(s) are well advised to think not once, but two or three times about the consequences of such advances.
Aries: Forward motion may be on hold. You have a situation in which two values are hard to satisfy at the same time. You want to protect home, hearth, family and property. It could be called "exclusivity." But the principles of inclusivity, fair play and humanitarianism are also important.
Taurus: You are an observer of drama this week. You have a protected box seat in the arena of your work situation. The pressure of rules, laws and reorganization is taunting an employee or coworker(s). Though you would like to help reduce the stress of the matter, you have no impact in the matter and will just have to watch.
Gemini: Your ruling planet, Mercury, is slowing to a crawl as it approaches its direct position. A concern regarding home, property, or family may continue unresolved for two to three weeks longer. You are pretty certain that you want to create change in one of these departments, but you are hesitating.
Cancer: Your energy level may be in a mild slump for the next week or so. You need to pull into your shell and rest. Your partner is struggling with personal identity issues right now and there is really little you can do to help except to listen and offer support as requested.
Leo: During this equinox period, changes in your work environment will pressure you to overcome your pride. You must adapt. Other issues at hand involve siblings and/or family matters. Vehicles or other equipment that have been overused may break.
Virgo: You are caught between what you should do and what you want to do. It will be two to three weeks before you can decide. Your mind may play tricks on you and you could be distracted easily. This is not a good time to do work that requires discipline with details.
Scorpio: You made a significant decision for change in the past winter. At this time the consequences of such change is apparent in your primary relationships, for good or ill. Issues concerning siblings, neighbors, and/or roommates are in crisis.
Sagittarius: Issues involving debt or loans are preventing you from taking hold of a matter and pursuing it to the ninth degree. The holdup could also be a delay in payments from severance, government, alimony, or insurance settlements. Use the time by actively supporting causes that are important to you.
Capricorn: You may be applauded for your ethical and moral behavior patterns. For those who slippy-slide around the line, a person of minor authority may find the error and bring it to the attention of others. One gets what is deserved this week.
Aquarius: Overdoing a good thing may cause you stress in the health department. Employees and service workers may take more time than you expected to spend supervising. A trip or other adventure seems prominent over the weekend.
Pisces: An issue concerning a person of significant importance has you quietly holding your breath. It is so perplexing and has so much historical detail, that you really don't want to think about it. The family dilemma will soon be out in the open, but for the next couple of weeks you can hide and wait.
