The Sun enters Libra on September 22nd, drawing our attention to issues of balance, harmony and relationships. Libra can be a sign of extremes, since the middle point is located after swinging from one side of an issue to the other. The goal with this sign is to find that balance point without pushing yourself to the outer reaches (or breaking point) of a situation. Mercury enters Scorpio on September 29th, and forms a harmonious trine with Neptune in Pisces until October 1st. Mercury in the sign of transformation and power puts raw, intimate communication on the agenda. Some will find this naked honesty a bit much. Fortunately, the trine to compassionate Neptune takes the edge off, so these few days will be excellent for broaching difficult subjects. Neptune’s magic and Scorpio’s power can also help a dream manifest into reality.
The Sun enters your partnership sector, putting the focus on relationships. Whether you’re in a relationship or single, you’ll find the overall vibe is about how others perceive you plus what you give (and get) in return. Balancing your wants with another’s will be important, either in a personal or professional relationship. Consider how much of what you’re experiencing from others is actually your projected issues/energy. Mercury in your sector of shared resources connects with Neptune in your hidden sector, giving you a chance to verbalize something that was (previously) too deep, secret or intimate to share.
The Sun in your sector of work and health hi-lights tasks, obligations, co-worker relationships and daily routines. Balancing your time with what you do for others may be an issue, along with resentment if you feel like you’re being taken advantage of. Alternatively, you can use this energy to correct any imbalances in your diet/exercise routine. Mercury in your relationship sector harmonizes with Neptune in your social sector, opening up discussions with a partner (about a big dream or personal goal) or allowing you to focus on and specify a romantic ideal or hope. This is the time to be completely honest with a partner, or they may have something deeply personal to tell you.
The Sun in your sector of self-expression turns your attention to what you put out (creatively or romantically) and who takes notice. Receiving praise/applause/attention for your efforts will be more important than usual, and you’ll find that you do have a receptive audience (and flirtatious admirers). Mercury (your ruler) in your sector of work and health connects with Neptune in your career sector, giving you an audience (with management/prospective employers) for your practical ideas. In- depth solutions to problems and focused ideas that can be applied in your daily environment will be your ticket. Show others how you can transform things on a mundane level. Note that the Sun (in your sector of self-expression) will help you get attention for these ideas.
The Sun in your domestic sector shifts your focus to home and family. Creating a harmonious environment where you can find peace will take on added importance, and certain issues (with family members or partners) may demand attention so you can correct any imbalances. This energy is about domestic compromise, although the temptation may be to swing from one extreme to the other. Consider if one family member, or one issue, has been claiming all your attention; now would be a good time to even things out. Mercury in your sector of self-expression harmonizes with Neptune in your sector of opportunities, giving deeply personal/passionate words and ideas a wide reach. This energy may expand your concept/view of a situation, or allow you to reach a wide audience with what you have to say.
The Sun (your ruler) enters your communication sector, making you aware of the impact your words have on others. Communication (emails, short conversations, phone calls) will increase, and the emphasis will be on light, harmonious interactions. Mercury enters your domestic sector, trining Neptune in your sector of shared resources; intimate/intense family discussions may involve shared finances (debts, taxes, loans, your partner’s finances) or issues around personal boundaries. The feel is harmonious and accepting, so don’t hesitate to bring up that one issue that’s been on your mind.
The Sun in your security sector hi-lights getting paid what you’re worth, and receiving the emotional nurturing that you deserve. This is the time to take stock of finances;what you earn, what you charge, what you spend. Does it add up to what what you feel you need? The same applies to emotional interactions with friends and lovers. Mercury (your ruler) in your communication sector trines Neptune in your relationship sector, enabling an open flow of deeply compassionate words with a partner. This is an excellent time for discussions about recent changes or confusing issues (where a relationship is going, the level of commitment that’s being established). Partners will be open to your intensity of purpose, so don’t be afraid to get serious.
The Sun in your sign makes this the time to put yourself first. Whether this means taking stock of a relationship, evaluating your current and future path, or just being self-indulgent, you can be selfish (and be honest about it). Mercury’s move into your security sector (and its connection with Neptune in your sector of duties) carries this theme forward as you focus on a financial/emotional matter. This influence favours honest communication about what you need, or a confrontation if you’re not getting it. Don’t hesitate to put your cards on the table, but at the same time, do so strategically (timing is everything).
The Sun in your sector of hidden things suggests low energy or your need of quiet, meditative time alone. This is a rest cycle, in preparation for when the Sun enters your sign (on October 22nd) so use this time to recharge. However, Mercury in your sign can push you to speak out on an issue, or have others requesting your guidance/input. Some of this will be unavoidable, but you have control over how much you say. Focus your ideas and apply with discretion. Neptune offers support by giving your ideas creative/expressive flare. This could also be your moment to express a deeply personal or romantic wish/longing. Once again, selective communication is best.
The Sun in your social sector turns your focus to group relations and the exchange of energy between you and friends/acquaintances. This can be a light-hearted, sociable time, but you may also find yourself taking stock of certain friendships, or how you interact with the public in general. Mercury in your sector of hidden things hints at secrets or rumours. There’s much that you don’t know, so wait until you get all the information. Neptune’s trine from your domestic sector indicates that what you’re sensing (or considering) is based on past events or family issues. Use past/personal information to add insight, but watch out that you’re not filling in the blanks based on what’s previously happened. The past, and habits associated with it, is fading.
The Sun enters your career sector, putting the focus on your future, your accomplishments and your professional reputation. This energy can help you mobilize attention and support for your goals, but much will depend on your ability to harmonize your ambitions with the agendas of others. The theme of social interaction continues when Mercury enters your sector of friends and groups, and connects with Neptune in your communication sector. Strategic, focused communication can deliver your dream or ideal to a large audience; the key will be your emotional commitment behind the cause. Others will feel (and respond) to what you feel, as long as you’re not afraid to let your intensity show.
The Sun enters your sector of opportunities, turning your attention to long distance travel, education, legal matters or publishing. Now is the time to expand, move forward, launch something new or venture into uncharted territory. Mercury in your career sector harmonizes with Neptune in your sector of resources, suggesting that a certain idea/hope involving where you’d like your career to go can manifest into something solid. Some of the fuel will come from your gradually shifting emotional and financial needs. Consider how your values have changed, and how these changes are impacting the direction of your future.
The Sun in your sector of shared resources spotlights taxes, loans or your partner’s finances. This energy supports balancing budgets, taking another look at debts or cleaning up your finances in general. Alternatively, emotional and physical intimacy may be hi-lighted. In all cases, the balance of power between you and another will be a concern, and much of what happens may be out of your control. Focus on finding a place of compromise. Mercury in your opportunities sector connects with Neptune in your sign, suggesting a message/introduction (involving long distance, education, legal matters or publishing) that brings something hopeful your way. Alternatively, this energy enables you to move forward with that personal agenda you’ve been nurturing; reach out, make enquiries or push your plan a bit further than you intended.
