Libra The Scales (Sept. 22-Oct. 22)
This is a very busy week with multiple influences. Romance and social life flow easily. Meanwhile, you have an old issue returning for review, which concerns family, home and your sense of belonging. Make an effort to avoid old knee-jerk reactions. Come from the Self that you are now.
For All Signs: This is a second week of drama triangles (see Sept. 14 issue). The ongoing tension between Uranus (for the people) and Pluto (for the Plutocrats) is punctuated now by transiting Mercury and Sun, which are conjunct and creating the third point in the triangle. The Sun is about ego: Who I Am. Mercury is about What I Think. In a drama triangle, there is a victim, a perpetrator, and a rescuer. Sometimes they alternate roles. For example, the rescuer in one scenario may be turned on by both the victim and the perpetrator, and his/her role evolves to that of the victim. We may see this scenario on the world stage or in our living rooms. It is dysfunctional and generally leads to a disappointing outcome in which nobody wins.
Aries: This is a fine week to play. Love and social life are given a "go" signal. Those with clientele will have plenty to do. There is a potential for accidents or breakage of equipment. The Powers that Be in your career life are definitely in charge. Progress can be made only through persuasion and even that may not help right now.
Taurus: In May, your engine revved and you started a new project that involves projecting yourself out into the world more fully. You began to explore a greater sense of self-confidence. During this period, you may be evaluating whether the initial start was worth the gain. Now is the time to pour more of your personal resources into that project or to let it go.
Gemini: There is an old saying: "Don't believe everything you think." Take this one to heart this week. Your feelings and thoughts may be only projections of what you want to think. You might identify a piece of information as a truth, when indeed it is merely your opinion. Try to reduce distractions so you will think more clearly.
Cancer: During this week you will enjoy home, hearth, and family. That also includes those whom you think of as an extended family, such as co-workers or maybe a special circle of friends. The arts and all things of beauty are of a special pleasure to you now.
Leo: Activities involving education, short distance travel, writing and lectures are favored now. Neighbors, siblings or roommates may provide entertainment. Alongside that, there is likely a crisis of decision in front of you concerning your job and/or co-workers. It is an old issue. The most important factor is to center yourself with who you have become rather than who you were.
Virgo: You may drive yourself buggy with multiple worries at this time. Most of what we worry over never comes to pass. Recognize that you may manifest your inner images, both positive and negative, into reality. Your hyper alert periods may be symptoms of obsessing.
Scorpio: It is of paramount importance that you control your mouth this week. Although you have an opinion about whatever is happening, let it go and say nothing unless asked for it. Being "right" is generally not as important as maintaining human relations.
Sagittarius: You are focused mainly upon work and projects throughout this week. Your attention may be called to the Internet, the law, or connecting to people at a distance. Travel is possible, but it is more probable that your connections will be electronic. Missing data or absentee people may be slowing your progress.
Capricorn: This is a good week to concentrate on a challenging mental project. It will work better for you if you are revising, editing or itemizing details. If you are producing a new creative work, you are likely to be overly critical of the outcome. The Critic may advise, but it should never be allowed to condemn your efforts.
Aquarius: Circumstances involving love life and money may feel a bit tight. You may experience an emotional droop near the first, in which you perceive yourself to be alone in the world. This is a temporary mood, so don't take it seriously. You are fatigued and potentially overworked. Get some rest.
Pisces: Things may be going fine in your outer world, but your inner world needs attention. An old bogey man, the fear of abandonment, could be rattling around in your mind. There are others who want to share their resources with you and the Fish is actually shy. Pisces may prefer to stay out of the limelight and swim to the bottom.
