Libra The Scales (Sept. 22-Oct. 22)
You very likely will encounter someone who wants you to hurry toward a decision. There is a sense of restlessness in another that makes you edgy. Your preference is to rein inward and move slowly, carefully. Look inside yourself to see if you are repressing your own disturbance. Is this an argument with yourself?
For All Signs: We arrived at the autumnal equinox on Sept. 23 at 5:05 am EDT. This was the theoretical point of equal day and night which teeters annually at the point of the northern hemisphere's slide toward winter. The solstices and equinoxes throughout the years 2010, 2011, and 2012, are especially significant points in time on this planet. Give attention to the main events one month before and after the solstice. There will be a global message. The spring equinox of 2011 gave us the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. Message to the world: Clean up nuclear energy plants; care about clean water as our most valuable resource.
Aries: Surprise, changeability and general rebellion are the qualities prominent this week. You may be the one who feels rebellious and wants to be left alone. Or it could be your partner or a good friend. Think carefully before you speak. Words may fall right out of your mouth when you least expect it.
Taurus: You may have overdone it on the goodies in life. If so, you might feel sluggish and have the droops. Put yourself back into harness and treat your body with what it needs, rather than what it craves. Perhaps you need some time to yourself, to handle work matters and reflect upon your life.
Gemini: You are caught between what you should do and what you want to do. The routine is safe, but also boring. 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. You are feeling independent, so you may want more alone time than is the norm.
Cancer: You may be feeling agitation over the subject of income and resources. Perhaps there is something nagging at you to buy, but it doesn't seem quite "right" yet. Meanwhile, attending to daily routines and using positive self-care disciplines give you a necessary sense of grounding.
Leo: The March equinox period brought circumstances, people and decisions that suddenly altered your perspective on life. This is the month to reflect upon that period. Do you approve of the developments since that time? Can you move forward from here? It's a decision to grow or split the scenario.
Virgo: It may seem that every time you attempt to concentrate on any sort of detail, someone or something begins to interfere. Bitsy parts will not cooperate or can't be found. It may take two to three trips to the hardware store or the grocery market to collect what you need to complete the task.
Scorpio: Between now and early November, your attention will be drawn to career and life direction. Activity in the outer world picks up speed. Authorities and others may be challenging, so have your ducks in a row if you take initiatives. Use this time to improve your "product" or your presentation.
Sagittarius: You are having a conflict between the big picture (always your preferred view) and finding the means to reach the current goal. Technicalities are not your thing, but right now the "devil is in the details." Usually you can find someone else to resolve these problems. It looks like this is your baby for the present.
Capricorn: Details may nag your mind and your time like pecking ducks. You may be in the mood to nit-pick on yourself or others at the beginning of the week. Your attitude is somber. This is a good time to work alone and concentrate on a calming project, rather than a challenging exploit.
Aquarius: You may be taking a sober look at one or more relationships. Even the very closest friends cannot know each other from the inside. There are times when we simply want to withdraw and have some quiet. Keep your social life to a minimum. It may happen for you, whether you wish it or not.
Pisces: You are "on hold" while you wait for others in your life to complete things. You can't rush forward or go backward to get around it now. It may very well be that it is you who is secretly reluctant to move, so you cooperate with circumstances and bide your time. You fear the unknown and making errors.
