Horoscope for the week of September 19, 2004

19 September 2004

Tip of the Week:

Autumn Equinox takes place at exactly 9:30 am on September 22 when the Sun officially enters the sign of Libra in the Tropical Zodiac. The Tropical Zodiac is based upon the Ecliptic, or apparent path of the Sun around the Earth and the fact that the earth is tilted on its axis by 23 degrees. Because of these realities we experience the four seasons.

During the course of one round of the Earth around the Sun – the Earth's orbit – and due to the 23 degree tilt the Earth reaches what are the Tropics of Capricorn and Cancer. Any good atlas will show these imaginary belts at equal distances north and south, respectively, of the equator. The Equinox points are the half way points and they symbolically refer to the waxing half moon for spring time and the waning half moon for autumn.

Despite the 'Precession of the Equinoxes', based on 72 minutes of retrograding arc time each year of our planet in respect to the 12 Constellations of the Zodiac due to a slight wobble in the earth axial rotation and orbit., the Sun still floods sacred chambers built thousands of years ago each year on March 21 or spring equinox, as was originally intended by the builders.

This is why Western Astrology works as it does and this is also why oriental systems of Astrology differ from the west quite significantly in that the latter recognizes the power of the Tropical Zodiac while the oriental systems honour the Sidereal Zodiac. Interestingly, the Sidereal Zodiac is currently 23 degrees behind the Tropical Zodiac. In any case, both work spectacularly well!

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

You are in a mood to get many things done. Clean-up from the summer, harvest time, preparation for winter, back to school, the long hot sunny days are gone again and the list goes on. Getting organized is a top priority. In certain respects, the jury is still out on certain aspects of your social and professional status. The need to facing fears continues to bubble beneath the surface. All the while, love is in the air and you feel passionate about playing. Well, you have your priorities straight in terms of being happy!

Taurus (Apr 21 – May 20)

A creative mood is carrying you to new heights. You want excellence and are bringing a critical eye to things, especially projects and other creative expressions. It is times like these that one longs for love that is close and quietly supportive of your passions. Bliss is doing the things we love and enjoying the pleasures of love all the while and in between. Avoid being your own worst critic. Don't take yourself too seriously, be grateful for opportunity and enjoy the process. With the right blend of complication you will evoke the vitality you desire.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)

A good deal of activity close to home is keeping you busy. In many respects, you have reasons to feel fulfilled while in others some much needed renovations require your full attention. These may include your living environment or perhaps poor attitudes need adjusting. Positive thoughts, feelings and expressions are their own reward. Like constructing new walls, relationship boundaries must be built. Alternatively, removing the dead wood and cleaning the environment may be the metaphor for disrespectful behaviour. Whistle, while your work!

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 21)

A very busy time on a variety of fronts is commanding your attention. Errands of all kinds, communications, short journeys and other such business are directing your efforts. Yet, this is a rapid learning curve and you are learning a lot of new tricks and angles. New love interests of one sort or another are part of the plot. Expanding your horizons with ideas, plans, visions and dreams feels like the right thing to do. Making room for love and romance is at least included on your current wish list. Do your duties; meet your needs!

Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 22)

Establishing a smoother flow in your life is now in the spotlight. You are in the mood to streamline your focus and approach. This may imply storing or altogether releasing some stuff from your possession. Life is not about things, it is about love, being alive and passionate and present in the moment as much as possible. Perhaps you are clearing the way for adventure. This is a job you need to do yourself so be the reliable one you seek, especially if you feel significant others are unreliable. Make room and feel the breeze.

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 21)

Launching new initiatives and taking fresh strides continues. Despite lingering caution, you are ready to expand your horizons even more. An entirely new flow of currents are guiding your direction. Like a kayak on a fast river, you can paddle and steer but the water has a big say. Some significant transformations, especially on relationship fronts will continue to ignite new places in your heart. On a more practical note, this is a good time to outline some plans and intentions for the next 3 to 6 months. Remember to paddle!

Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 21)

With four major planets in the house of the subconscious mind in your solar chart, you may be feeling the pressure. Unless you are in a position to retreat and relax, demands from others may feel more tiresome than ever. Fortunately, this will soon change. A whole new wave of freedom, ambition and determination is on the rise. In any case, you may still be searching for an authentic and true quality of experience both at home and on the job. At least some changes in your lifestyle are the call. Change your mind and leave the rest as it is!

Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)

You are a unique bird and quite possibly very independent these days. In one way or another, freedom and independence are your best friends. Yet, you also feel responsible to working and playing harmoniously with actual friends. You want to know how to love others freely as that is what you want in return. Take no offence; people cannot love one another perfectly, only God can love perfectly. However, we can aspire to realize ideals in the quality of our relationships. This includes honest and sincere communication. Fly on feather wings!

Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 20)

Making some key moves in public and professional arenas continues as a central theme. Remember, this is a good time to approach authority figures for favours and rewards such as a raise. Building upon your credentials and willingness to work and learn is important now. This includes a constructively critical approach to some of the practical aspects of your life. Sudden changes in relationships, at least of mood, sentiment and/or attitude, will provoke the situation somehow, especially over the next two weeks. Assert your worth and value.

Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)

Learning more about yourself, your community and the world is keeping you interested these days. Higher education, travel, cultural events and spiritual interests are featured. Support is coming from other key players on your stage. You feel passionate about the implications and are determined to follow through. However, this chapter is coming to a close and a new one will soon begin. Emphasis will shift to your career. Intend to let others take the lead while you take time to cultivate your individuality and independence.

Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 19)

Many parts of your personality are currently in a cauldron where they are melting into a more unified whole. As scary as this may sound, you have reason to be excited. Something and/or someone new will soon enter your life. In any case, the change will be very obvious. Generally, you will feel elevated and exalted. Just causes will enter into a victorious phase. This will inspire you to explore new possibilities, especially in your love life. You have been busy yet patient and the time is drawing near to enter the next phase.

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

A good deal of energy and focus in your relationships is keeping your entertained. A new level of freedom that continues to grow is changing old attitudes about how things should be. Now, you want both freedom and commitment. This is possible especially with good communication, trust and willingness. You have worked long and hard to establish new norms that work for both you and your partner or future partner. It is good to acknowledge your efforts so that you remain true to your authentic self while in relationship.
