It’s that time of year again. Summer is pretty much over and the harvest time of year is beginning. What have you learned from your journey, so far? Do you have the same goals now as you did when the year began? What new achievements are you looking at accomplishing? September is an excellent time for mulling these questions over and for coming to a greater understanding of yourself and your world. Here’s a hint— only you know where the answers to these questions can be found.
THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20 “There comes a time when the risk to remain tight in a bud is more painful than the risk it takes to blossom.” The nature of your quandary is expressed in many ways—one of them—‘which choice do I make?’ The answer, as always, lies within you and no one can tell you which way to go. Hint—choose with your heart not your head.
THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) It’s been a long, intense journey, but you can pause now and see how far you’ve come. As you assess your life from this new perspective, you’ll begin to realize that life doesn’t have to be a contest of wills, i.e., ‘yours’ vs. ‘theirs.’ It’s time to reflect and reevaluate as you stake your claim on a new future.
THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) The forces of the Universe are strongly urging to take ‘the next big step.’ Do set aside your ‘reasons’ for holding back and take the courageous actions needed to bring you through this current phase of your process to a place of profound self-confidence and achievement.
THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Are you resisting the inevitable—change? Why are you resisting it? Could the answer be, habit and fear? The time has come for you to change that habit and stop resisting. By so doing, you’ll be able to go with the flow of powerful creative energy and reap the benefits of your actions.
THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) This is a time of manifestation for you. What you ask for, you are very likely to receive. Make sure to be specific in your requests and appreciatively express your gratitude. This means saying a big ‘Thank You’ to you, too.
THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Now is the time to consciously process all that you’ve experienced lately in order to put it in its proper place in your life. Enjoy the respite and prepare to relish the upcoming adventure—you will soon be off on an inner quest that promises to reveal a new meaning of life for you.
JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) The last few years have been ‘character builders’ (a euphemism for ‘tough’), haven’t they? Thankfully, that phase of growth is winding down. Be kind to yourself as you begin preparing for the time when living and learning become a joy again. Do take time to smell the roses.
THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) As daunting as the past months have been, what your experiences have taught you is invaluable. One of those lessons learned—the trick of holding something still long enough to determine its true value. And what have you been holding still? Yourself. This new way of being brings you an excellent opportunity to know yourself as well as manifest whatever is of value to you on the spiritual, emotional and material levels.
WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) Congratulations! You’ve learned to be true to yourself and your goal. You’ve achieved things you would never have thought possible in the past. Be careful not to minimize your achievements and do treat yourself to a well-deserved reward. Enjoy your triumph with joy, grace and gratitude.
THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) The efforts of the last few months have begun to show fruit. Take care of the details and continue to listen to and follow your intuition. The opportunities for your growth and advancement are increasing. It’s especially important for you to pay attention to your dreams now. What you see and sense will provide you with excellent guidance.
THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) You have a strong momentum going—do take advantage of it by honestly acknowledging your efforts. And do celebrate your richly deserved victories! Balance and trust are two of your most intensely learned lessons from this period—use them as you evaluate your life and goals.
THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Faith and appropriate action are your strongest partners right now. No matter what happens, continue to keep your eyes focused on your goal and keep placing one foot in front of the other as you ask for and accept Divine Guidance. As the fog of uncertainty lifts, you’ll find that you’re on a direct course and will, indeed, arrive at your destination in fine style.
